Bad things are happening in Stormwind – and beyond.

The Hand of Lothar, they call themselves.

Yva Darrows was their first target.

Tirith and Aely were their second and third.

They have since… expanded their reach and escalated their methods …

I am, it seems, in a silly mood.  You have been warned.

Ok – so a Mad-Lib is a short story from which most of the important words have been removed.  Instead, they have only blanks – but you don’t get to see the story when you fill in the blanks, hence providing the hilarity when you finally put the whole thing together.  I’ll put a list below of word types – you come up with the answers.  Tomorrow, I’ll post the story, with a few of the submitted word examples.  And no, you do not get any hints as to what the story is about!

Here’s what you need:

  1. Flower
  2. Noun
  3. Verb
  4. Number
  5. Adjective
  6. Noun
  7. Body Part
  8. Adverb Adjective

  • With so much else going on, I’ve not been WoWing as much as usual, but I think that’s to be expected!
  • TRI’s clear of 25 man content this week was super exciting – now to start on Sarth +2 (which I fully expect to kick our tails for awhile).
  • I think the new raid goal should be “Cleared all T7 Content before Anna has to move”.
  • New Priest introduction should be sometime this week – she’s working her way through the Borean Tundra right now, with a little gnome mage sidekick.  Shadowpriesting is fun, but running with a mage makes me feel inadequate (his damage is all up front, mine has to hang around before it gets nasty).
  • I want to level my druid as well, and I think some Bind on Account gear is in order, esp. given that Aely doesn’t need her badges anymore.
  • It was really nice to not have lag this week while raiding.  Lag is the suck.
  • Malygos isn’t my favorite fight… but when the DK accidentally Chains of Ice (or whatever it’s called) the Dragon instead of the spark, and Malygos turns around and *the entire raid* except the tank dies… it’s kinda funny.
  • Our eternally-Fire-specced mage is playing with Arcane.  I am the target of his fun Focused Magic buff thing.  <Annas Stamp of Approval>
  • Fishing coins in Dalaran is still annoying.

Forgive me, as this is a non-WoW post.

I wanted to wait before I said anything (don’t want to jinx it, plus speaking too soon and losing out would’ve been pretty crappy), but there’s some pretty big and awesome stuff going on for me and Spaceship Husband and the two furballs.

We’ve put in an offer on a house, and it’s been accepted – we have an executed contract and have had the home inspected now as well.  While there’s still a long way to go before closing (Hopefully mid-February, currently tentatively set for Feb 27), things are in process for us to actually buy our first house.

It’s a bit of a luck strike for us – the previous owner didn’t do *anything* in it, and the owners before that had a bunch of kids, so it’s got a lot of cosmetic work to do (the master bedroom/bathroom are neon peach, one of the bedrooms has magenta wood-grain wallpaper, the kitchen has bright pink formica countertops) as well as being quite dirty inside – but the layout is gorgeous, the kitchen is huge, the flooring is new or in great shape.  Oh – and it’s in a fantastic neighborhood, on a cute cul-de-sac, with a great yard.

I’ll keep you guys updated as I know more, but for now, keep your fingers crossed for us!

After quickly dealing with Sapphiron and Kel’Thuzad, TRI took out Sartherion +1 tonight. Our first try at Sarth + adds. Two shot, went quite well, etc etc.

So we thought – eh? Let’s try Malygos. We have two hours; we’ll get some good learning time in.

And you know what we did? We killed him. In an hour and a half of tries. We almost didn’t make it – in fact, I was the only one still alive after he died (and then I died to DOTs). But we did it.

So except for +2 and +3, we’ve seen all raid content that this current patch has to offer. And that’s pretty darn cool for a bunch of (role)players that raid two nights a week.

*one very pleased and proud Anna*

So I’m not really in a position where I should be creating alts. This, of course, does nothing to deter me from making alts when the inspiration strikes. I’ve been really enjoying my Alliance hunter, and she’s my raiding main …

The cathedral bells stop ringing overnight, except for chiming the hours. Three bell strikes, and Angoleth padded softly around another corner of the Cathedral District, staying carefully in the shadows. Trained ears picked up Mogget’s soft breathing – nearly inaudible …
