So recently I did some stuff, and under that broad heading falls:

- informed bossmans I wanted in on this management gig;
- almost immediately reconsidered in light of how he treats his two current shift supervisors, but TOO LATE NOW: I can only GO FORWARD and maintain my moral rectitude (quit giggling);
- figured out some important things about half-marathons and why I won't be running one this year;
- clapped for that adorable guppy as she toddled at a sprint;
- gave up drinking caffeine after noon for the sixteenth straight day (NEXT STEP: ONLY ONE CUP OF COFFEE A DAY, baby steps baby steps baby steps);
- finally wrote some damn words.

They weren't good words, they weren't well-flowing words, they weren't genius is what I'm getting at, but they happened.

Also, BREWMASTER ARANRUTH. Ruth is so cute, but she seriously needs new shoulders.

My totally awesome BFF got linked by WoWInsider. I am at least as cool as those guys, so I am telling you straight up to check out her raiding blog.

Day 02 — The biggest jerk you’ve dealt with (in game)?

This took me a while to sort through, because there were some jerks who were not entirely jerks in-game, and I didn't want to go off on an awful traumatizing tangent. Hence, I will not name names or reminisce about things that took me a server transfer and about two years to get over! HAPPY PRETENDY FUNTIME GAME

Ganked from Skei-bot, Notadesk, and The Mighty Empress Calpatine.

Assistant Professor Greyspell.

:D :D :D

I will, of course, continue with Archaeology until I am a full professor, as befits him, but still: not bad for four days of diggin'.

I absolutely love The Reliquary. (Greyspell is ON BOARD. Except for the part where Theron pretends he had a part in it. Beware Rommath.)

I haven't done too much in the old world yet - I'm still working on Conqueror (61% Defilers! 65% OUtriders! Hnnnng), and tiny paladin is almost seventy-six. She is gleefully scaring horseys in Grizzly Hills and trying to sort out how she feels about the Horde and why. Her common sense keeps getting in the way.

Two more days of work, and then FLYING SAUCER. :D
meej: (fanfic)
I found a slew of old fanfic ideas I had - mostly for Babylon 5, little snapshots of Talia Winters and Susan Ivanova and playing with the original concept JMS had, that Susan was going to have been the leader of the telepath rebellion. (Not that I do not love Lyta, but can you imagine Susan with her grief over both Talia and Marcus? I do not ship Susan and Marcus, mostly because oh she does not love him, at least she could have boffed him once, but he was her friend, and Susan had too few.) OH BY THE WAY THOSE WERE ALL SPOILERS FOR B5. YOU SHOULD HAVE WATCHED IT BY NOW ANYWAY.

I was going to write something about Season Three of Battlestar Galactica, but that might require watching it again. OH TEH NOES!

I had also some snippets about Narnia and the fate of Susan. I hated a Neil Gaiman story on this subject so badly that I never finished the other stories in the collection. I don't really know that I could write Narnia fic - I am not a deep enough theologian nor an efficient enough plotter - but I always wanted to punch Rabadash in the mouth (and then Lewis went and did it better).

I don't really have a lot of fandoms. I wasn't allowed to play video games growing up, so I missed out on a lot of the sweet RPGs that influenced a lot of my friends. (Fortunately pinkhouse is playing Suikoden now so I can see what happens!)

If I'd had the foresight to sign up for Yuletide, I'd demand a darkfic about Anne Remillard actually being Fury, or about Kassafeh building a tower of her ow - ... ... ... Actually I might write that one, incorporating pomegranates and the hopelessly cross-eyed guardsman. No one seems to read Flat Earth but me and twelve-year-old girls of various ages and genders (which: okay).

I always used to get deep narrow flashes of inspiration for fanfiction - particular reaches from the canon that I wanted to explore. These days I very rarely write with canon characters - well, no, that's only true for World of Warcraft, in which I write my rp characters rather than - say - Thrall or Varian Wrynn. I understand that this is also Richard Knaak's usual m.o., except when he's character-assassinating dwarves or the blue dragonflight (Kalecgos is not qualified to be an Aspect, oh FIDDLESTICKS). ... I could write about Kalecgos being awful and Tyrigosa and Haleh smacking him a good one, I suppose. I know it would make Cal happy.

I think that the moral of this story is that I need to write more snapshots. Oh hey! I had one for The Irresponsible Captain Tylor! And like NINE for Bastard!! I can't say a word about BSSM, as it spawned Graycloaks (tangentially).

In other news: I have all of my Christmas shopping done. BOOM!
meej: Carlton Lassiter gets so tired sometimes. (tired)
- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part One) is charming and I have more thoughts; I will show you them later.
- Man ALIVE I am getting fierce with my running; I can keep an 8:05 mile for four miles. Now to prove it for the Meowathon tomorrow. I'm racing Ali, you guys, and SHE WILL WIN.
- I have worked for the past nine days. I am looking forward to my three days off. I will write, and gupcuddle, and run!!!, and drink BEER.
- I will also um watch more Voltron and She-Ra. Cal and I discovered that the entire series are available on Netflix. It is so humiliating how much of the pertinent mythos I recall without prodding.


- Tiny paladin is 74 (in two more quests), and I am so not interested in doing quests for Koltira "Whiny" Deathweaver, as I believe I have gone on record stating that I loathe all death knights neither a) my friends nor b) Thassarian.

This goes double for Koltira, whose name I rather like as a collection of sounds, and of whom, therefore, I had higher standards.
meej: Lok'tar ogar, bitches. (for.the.horde)
The tiny paladin is now no longer quite so tiny (almost 73 HNNNNG), and I have to quest in Dragonblight. I am not best pleased; the Dragonblight is my second-least-favorite zone (Borean Tundra pffft), and especially the bits that deal with the Blue Dragonflight, because the entire Nexus War gives me the pip.

Waffle about Warcraft roleplay! )

Soon I can be on to Grizzly Hiiiiiillssssssss AND SCARE PONIES!
meej: now with glyphic power! (pee.vee.pee)
So apparently my battlegroup is merging with Vengeance.

Name-change, PRONTO.
meej: (greyspell)
Oh my god what have they done to warlocking

:( :( :(

Soul-Swap looks hot as hell. Bane of Havoc makes me laugh in disbelieving glee.

What the fresh hell is this about soul sharding combo points.

However, I'm not too proud to admit that I'm not going to use some of the talent switches as base for my fanfics. That's right. I'm doing it. Greyspell is already a special snowflake warlock, I'm going to go whole hog.

(He will still not have carnal knowledge of the Sunwell.)
meej: (greyspell)
Today is patch 4.0.1. It's a damn good thing that I don't have anything to unlearn about paladin healing, then, because now is when Beacon of Light becomes sort of stupid.

I haven't actually played the beta, so I'm not sure how this is going to go down. (I tend to avoid spoilers, relying on my friends telling me choice bits they think I will find interesting, so I get to theorycraft ON THE FLY. This also neatly avoids me having to deal with people who Have Opinions on the expansion, and trying to Show Me Them.)

There are only two things I want before the actual expansion comes out. I accomplished one of them a while ago (Greyspell the Exalted), so now it is time to buckle down and get some serious conquering done. Warsong Outriders: 54%. The Defilers: 57%. If only my battlegroup did not have some serious schizophrenia.

I keep seeing my buddy Nine pop up (I will always get heals in a bg with Nine), and lately I've been seeing some decent rogues and warriors from Tortheldrin (ROGUES? FROM TORTHELDRIN?), but so far the only halfway good paladin is Rokzilla. i WAS PROMISED DISC-PRIEST BUBBLES FROM A WEE INKTUSK. :( <3?

I am, so far, displeased about the Affliction changes. It is my favorite tree to play, because I heart fear-kiting and pulling fifteen mobs at once with Corruption. I have heard that the nerf bat punches it so hard it falls down the shadow priest tree. :( Oh well. At least I'm not a mage.
meej: (uptight)
I've been peeking over Suboshi's shoulder at the WoW Cataclysm beta. I have discovered to my considerable surprise that I do not loathe worgen, which I thought I would based on my previous in-game experience. It just goes to show that meejes should not jump to conclusions.

It is one week since my guppy was born, and she is so ridiculously cute. Today she had her first bath. She flailed and screamed in RAEG!!11!! the entire time, because so far her least favorite things are being: a) wet, and b) cold, and bathtime proved to be both wetsome and cold-making, despite the warm water and the body heat of three adults clustered around her and anxiously dabbing at spit-up-covered portions of her tiny body. Oh man she's going to be a hell of an athlete when she's a bit larger; she's all leg.

I RAN A 10K TODAY. NO PARTICULAR REASON. I JUST GOT UP AND THOUGHT, "TODAY I'LL RUN SIX MILES AND CHANGE," AND I DID IT. I had to stop and walk for fifteen seconds just after hitting five miles, and I was so mad about it. Talk about wusscakery, there was LESS THAN A MILE TO GO. And yet the sideache, it had gone well into icepick-in-the-side territory. :( Next time I try this, I'll go for running the entire time. I finished at 56:51, which is not terrible, but I really wanted to try for a solid 54:00. Oh well. I need to find a new route, I grow bored with the same neighborhood every time, particularly the ridiculous hill at 2.6 miles. Seriously. Eff that hill, man. In the neck.


I went shopping today, because sometimes a girl needs some pretty underwear, and Victoria's Secret concluded that my breasts are problematic. Apparently I am a different size in each of the three major bra lines they're doing right now. Really, you guys? Did not instill confidence. However, I am weak against plum lace, and so plum lace there was, in the size we finally determined me to be. I just realized that if I keep running at the rate that I am, it probably won't fit in a month. MOAR PLUM LACE!

I think that this is actually everything awesome that is happening with me right now. I will later cover my tea-ventures, the non-sucky vampire Victoriana I'm reading, and my parents' reactions to being given The 13 Clocks as a birthday gift. (SPOILER: my mom cried a little. :D)
meej: Carlton Lassiter gets so tired sometimes. (tired)
I'm still really on the fence as to how I feel about Cataclysm.

I totally called some upcoming shifts in the lore (who was right about Desolace and Winterspring? me. thanks!), but I couldn't care less about worgen, and also I'm pretty sure that trolls are going to be mad about Kezan. I'm just saying. I have avoided reports from the beta like burning. I don't want to know. I want to find out on my own.

The playstyle shifts may flummox me for a while; I know it took me a while to hink around after TBC launched. (DERPGUARD)

I've been trying to write. It comes out all stunted and unlovely, so I've been gorging myself on good prose, and then getting mad when I can't write like that. Devouring words with hideous envy and admiration is helping, a little, but I still can't unlock what I want to convey, and my inner scenery looks like god damn Waiting for Godot.

I repainted the library, in creamsicle-orange and buttery-yellow. It looks like sunshine sherbet in there. I am wildly happy, even if I did drip some paint in my eye so I've been bespectacled (and bereft of peripheral sharpness).

I'm paging through old notebooks and noting with some surprise that I had some good ideas, once upon a time. Seriously? Wow. What happened?


I blame Z.

Let's have a warm round of applause for:

Straight, the male blood elf paladin.
Warcock, the male undead warlock. ** Extra points awarded for being HIGH WARLORD Warcock.
Arolaide, the female human paladin. (I propsed her because ... I came up against her in the Gulch, and I just could not kill her. I mean, what do you even do.)
Treeformcow, the ... treeform... tauren druid.
Ihategnomes, the male undead rogue. WELL SAID, GOOD SIR.
Iwantmymtv, the troll hunter.
Raptordrood, the tauren druid. RAPTOR DROOD!!!!!!

They all lack the simple elegance of 'Greyspell', but we can't all be as awesome as me.

Except for Warcock, that guy's awesome.
