I can has welfare epix

Good weekend.

I found the Combustion Bracers on the AH for half their normal price. So I snapped those up and finally got the “EPIC” achievement.

I ran one regular ToC and picked up the Abyssal Rune (lovely tasty caster trinket).

Then I finally got the last of the badges and Lilac, my warlock is now sporting four piece Tier 8(25). I feel slightly guilty since I didn’t actually get -any- of these tier pieces off of the Ulduar boss that drops the tier token. I ended up with two badge pieces (head,chest) and two pieces off of Emalon (legs, hands). I -did- earn them.. but I didn’t down the Ulduar bosses (and especially not the Uld-25 bosses) for them.. So I feel like I cheesedicked my way into them. Ah well.. For Uld-25 we were allied with another guild.. they were on East Coast time.. so I stopped being able to make the raids.. then that guild went “boom” so 25-man runs have kind of fizzled. We’re now recruiting.. we’ll see if we can ramp up to 25-mans again.

Beige.. I think I’ll paint the ceiling beige

wow_warlock_tier_7_by_rhino848
I remember the first time I noticed a warlock.

I was wandering around in Ironforge as a level forty-something Draenei Paladin. While running from the auction house to the mailbox I saw something out of the corner of my eye. I stopped short and even exclaimed out loud. My fiancée, who was sitting behind me, turned around and asked me what was wrong.

Me: Did you see that?
Him: See what?
Me: That person in the red, and orange {pointing at the screen} had wings. That was so cool.
Him: Oh, that’s a warlock.

I was fixated. I was in love. I think I followed that warlock all around Ironforge until they took a flight path. I kept hoping I’d see those wings again.

Eventually, after my Paladin hit 70 and healing made my eyes bleed and fall out of my head, I decided I needed to level an alt.. and I thought back to those wings.

“Cataclysms” go BOOM

logo_1920x1200AKA WoW 4.0 coming sometime in 2010.

So Deathwing (crazy corrupted dragon aspect of earth who’s be touched in a bad way by demons and Old Gods) busts out the ceiling of Deepholm (elemental plane of earth) and brings about the Cataclysm. I’m sure there’s more to it.. because poking a hole in the ceiling should not cause such drastic environmental changes as we see in the Cataclysm Trailer.. but it does. Maybe it’s because he’s bridging the elemental planes of existence into the world of Azeroth. You know.. crossing the streams and all.

Anyway, after being static for 5 years.. suddenly everything is going to change.

Social networking cards from moo.com<br />
 on TwitpicMonday: Social Networking Cards from Moo.com arrived
Tuesday ~2 PM: Fiancee who loves me immensely drove to Sacramento to pickup the TNB special print Tshirts. Nibuca T-shirt for me, 2 grey t-shirts for Fim and 4 shirts for give away. Originally we only ordered 2 shirts for give away but they “screwed up the print order” so we got an additional two at a discount. The “screw up” was they printed the front full-size instead of pocket size. Totally acceptable.
Tuesday 6:08 PM: In car, on my way. I-5 is boring.
