this thing is still about things

Lots of things have been happening since I last posted but I’ll get to that in a minute.  Priorities:  Legion has been so amazing.  Amazing as in a great new class, excellent story line and immersive lore.  All of that aside, it has been utterly heartbreaking.  I am not in the least ashamed to admit that I am very emotionally invested in this game.  It’s no different than a book series or a TV show that you’ve watched for 10 years–at some point it will tear out your heart and leave you there to mourn.


If you haven’t played Legion yet, then don’t watch this.  Or do, whatever, I’m not a cop.  I always worry about spoilers for people who are late to the game.  The clip shows the ending of the cinematic and what I would assume is a generally appropriate response.  If it had been me, all you’d see is tears and snot and general embarrassment.

This is worse than Admiral Commander Taylor.

Of course, after witnessing the horrible demise of our great King, I am tasked with bringing his final words to his son, Prince King Anduin.

Look at how depressed he is.

I mean, he’s sunken into the steps of the dais.  He loses his mother as a baby and now this!?  He’s a priest, not a warrior!  What now?

We all stood there and stared, no knowing what to say or do.

Jokes aside, it’s been awesome to play.  Demon hunters, demon invasions, new things to do in old places–all great.  Of course I made a demon hunter on the first day.  I put a lot of thought into what I was going to name him.  Just kidding, there was absolutely no other name possible:

Flame Warden is as close to Warden as I could get. Maybe Love Fool would be a better title?

I opted out of horns because everyone has horns and I couldn’t find a leather duster to transmog him into.  I did give him some scraggly hair that needs to be cut and facial hair.  If only, IF ONLY demon hunters could wield staves I’d be so dorkily happy.

We always need a little help from our friends.

I mean, you knew he needed a companion, right?

This makes me want to create a whole other imaginary Dresden Files world inside of Warcraft.  Karrin Murphy as a warrior?  Michael Carpenter as a paladin?  Molly Carpenter as a warlock?  Waldo is a gnome.  He just has to be.  William and Georgia as worgen, of course.  Who could be a priest?  Charity?  Don’t mind me, just rambling on and on.

tl;dr:  Legion is fun, go play it now.

I live


I’ve been somewhat absent lately.  Making myself scarce, so to speak.  Sometimes I just can’t shut up about my problems and other times…

Anyway, first thing’s first:  I had to wait 41 days to read the next Dresden Files book.

I see what you did there.

I just don’t have the money at the moment to buy every book I desperately want and this series is right at the top of that list.  To wait 41 days to read a book that took…4 hours to read just isn’t fair in a way.  There was apparently *ONE* copy of it in the whole county system and whoever had the book must have freaking lost it or destroyed it or ran away with it.  They had to (again) order new books and I was still second in line for it.  Then the person for whom it was being held didn’t even bother to pick it up so that tacked on an extra week of annoyed waiting.  But I got it, read it and I’m proud to say that I actually figured something out before it was revealed in the story.  I was not disappointed or felt as if the story had become predictable; I was more excited to find out if I was right.

Finally, this is relevant to me! And Sue was gray and black, not green. Pfft.

Since I was having such an annoying time getting books from the li-berry, I decided to check out the next three books in the series and renew them over and over so that I wouldn’t have to wait.

I’ll probably have them done by Monday.  I’m the epitome of of the second deadly sin.  Which reminds me, I should totally put in the hold requests for the next few books.  I don’t remember if I mentioned it or not, but I blew out the Codex Alera series in a blink.  I still don’t know how I feel about the ending.   Is it wrong that I wanted more death?  I felt a bit of the deus ex machina showing.  Or maybe I’m just sadistic in that I want my heroes to succeed, but at a high and nasty cost.  I’m kind of an asshole.

In other news, you are the classiest:

There are a *ton* of wiener shots on my page, actually.

But nerds of a feather and all that.  I saw this and it made me laugh:

My stats, flipping me the bird.
