A bit Pete Tong...

Pilf – are you not too old to be using pseudo Cockney rhyming slang? I hear you ask.  Why, yes I am – thank you for pointing that out.  But I’m also too old to say the *following words/expressions: cool, awesome (cf: awesome-sauce, made of awesome), win, epic, omnomnom, hawt (as in ‘he’s so totally…’), sexeh, babe, fit, (as in ‘he’s so totally…’), fat phat, etc etc.  Himself, I would like to point out is like totally purely allowed to say them being soooo old that it wouldn’t be possible for him to say them in anything other than with a heavy dose of irony as he’s not Mum and therefore can’t be as embarrassing.  /Sulk.  

Moving on though – the world is going a bit Pete Tong because every day this week (and for most days last week) blogs that are on my Reader have shut up shop.  All of which makes me a sad kitten.  Don’t get me wrong, I fully understand WoW and/or blogging becoming a draining time-sink that’s no longer enjoyable, and I wish all the bloggers happy lives, both in MMOs and in their real lives… but I’d JUST got my Reader sorted (and I was exceptionally proud of myself) and now the list is getting short again. So help me out here folks – I’m especially bad with finding new blogs so leave me linkies to anything I should be reading (and no porn plox, unless it’s of the belfie persuasion!)  And yes, I know that I should just visit Blog Azeroth regularly and see what appeals but I’m made of idle and you’re all soooo lovely…

I’ve also been a bit daft.  Having avoided priests (Project 10 one aside, and she’s a gnome so whilst cute she’s still stinky Alliance and I continue to be For the Horde!!11!!) successfully for… quite a long time now, I made another one.  Not a belfie one – I’m trying, for the sake of both my in-game and RL happiness to stop being quite such a belf (Myself: “There is a difference between neurotic and multi-layered and complex you know!”  Himself: “Yes, yes you’re right.  There is.” Pause.  *Significant glance* that implies I might not be on the right side of the neurotic/multi-layered divide.)  So she’s a troll.  I’m trying to be more troll-ish you see and I love my troll druid a lot.  And ohhhh I love her.  I love her a lot.  Now, I fully accept that I’m fickle and as shallow as a puddle, with commitment issues… But gosh-darn it I do love me a good priest.  Or a bad priest, come to it.  Or priestesses in any form.  So Project 10 might slow down a little whilst I try to wash the discipline out of my hair… 

*NB: List is non-exhaustive and subject to amendments/additions without notice.  Definition of 'too old' also subject to change without warning. Gotta love teenagers...

  1. Ooh priests are fun. And gnomes are evil (yes yes I'm alliance now, but horde habits die hard!) so that's all fine not wanting to be one!

    I'm thinking of leveling a healer to maybe play with a friend's horde guild (they have different raid days than my own) - but that means I'm now stuck having to decide on a healing class! So like.. shaman.. which is kinda new to me.. or druid.. which I haven't healed on since vanilla (totally not different now, right!11!??) or another priest (which I already have an alliance one at 85)

    So yeah.. decisions are hard. For everyone. Or I like to think so...

    And I think we're definitely allowed to use all those words, no matter our age.. I like to do the "totally this" or "totally that" which I know makes me sound like a high school teenager, but I can't stop! It just sounds so funny.. oh and awesomecakes is the best word ever. Totally!

    I wish I could help on blogs to read, but I suspect you already follow the good ones I have on my feedreader. (I can recomment pretty much all of them) Do you read Disciplinary Action? She has funny comics? I love comics ;)
