A few unrelated things on my mind this morning, from various things this week:
Congrats to Shaila and Chelody! It’s been awhile since I’ve been to an RP wedding, and Sunday night was a blast (even if I did almost show up late. Oops). You guts did a beautiful job, and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place. Except maybe Tarquin, but we all know he doesn’t count. Aely wishes she could’ve stayed longer at the reception, but she was glad to at least make a toast and have a shot (or 5) in your honor. *hic*
Leveling Ancelyn : after reading Cynwise’s post about leveling in Mists, I’m holding off on pushing Ancelyn any further. Warlock changes sound exciting, and I’d prefer to get Annata out of Outlands anyway, before I start it with another character. Hopefully Annata will be able to dig into Northrend, since there’s a good bit going on there. I’m still kind of dreading having to do the Cataclysm content again though.
Diablo 3 Impressions: I’m not sure Diablo 3 is groundbreaking and new, but dang it’s fun. I’ve got my little demon hunter to level 9ish (only had one night to play so far), and it’s been good, old fashioned demon smashing fun! SSH is playing a barbarian, and the combination is quite … destructive. I’m a big fan of the BattleTag system too.
Limited Play Time: sucks. But there’s not much I can do about it, if I want to still have a clean house and keep my job. I’m struggling to find time to play, so my new plan includes cooking multiple things on weekends and then eating them throughout the week, hopefully to give me more time to do things in game. It means I spend my entire Sunday cooking though. We’ll see how this plan works out. I MISS gaming though, so I figure there’s got to be a way to work it out so I can still game, work, and keep up with the house! At least, I hope there is. I’m pretty sure I’m not going to be raiding anymore though – that kind of consistent evening time just isn’t possible, and I’m a little sad to leave that behind for good. Especially since my Cata raid disintegrated before we could kill Deathwing. Hopefully the decrease in raiding can equal an increase in RP though.
RP Advice Needed: I’m struggling with how to approach playing Aely now that Arrens is well and truly “gone”. While I’d love for him to come back to WoW, he’s done with the game and his work schedule would prohibit gaming even if he wasn’t. Going forward, I don’t want to put aside the things they did and wrote together, and Arrens and I are still friends outside of the game, but it’s tough to RP Aely since they were so often together and doing things with/based on the other’s RP. So I need you guys’ advice on some ways I can make this work without putting Aely through a breakup. I have no desire to do that, at this point, but I’d love to hear other options for dealing with a long term/permanent absence.
