In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, my hubby made me pancakes.

In the spirit of WoW, he made them into shapes:

WoW-Flavored Breakfast

Ah, to be young and a nerd and in love (with a pally willing to make delicious food for you).  Is there anything finer?

You’ve leveled your DPS class to 80.  You’ve geared up with emblems, and you even have 4 other DPS friends and 2 healers hanging around who are ready to go, too.  Although you haven’t done any research into the ICC fights, you’re positive that there’s someone out there just dying to lead your raid.  And hopefully they (a) are a tank or healer and (b) have two well-geared tank/healer buddies they want to bring along as well.  Best way to find this – TRADE CHAT!

Please lead my raid...

Was it just me who thought this ICC run might be in a little bit of trouble?

Taz and her pally head to Europe...

Taz and her pally head to Europe...

Well, on top of all of the moving, leaving my job, and general chaos that has been attending my real life lately, I’m headed out to Europe for the next three weeks with my pally!  Hooray!

Sadly, this means I’ll be 50 steps behind everyone else on the latest patch notes, druid nerfs (they’re doing WHAT to rejuv?!  new badges already?!), and general fun-fun that is going on in WoW.  On the other hand, I’ll be having fun-fun of my own trotting around gorgeous mountains in Switzerland and hanging out in Irish pubs.  (We will probably not be visiting London, so no Big Ben…or Parliament…)

So while I’m gone, happy playing everyone.  Save me a seat at the WoW table for when I get back.  And enjoy the hourly mind-numbing trick-or-treating that comes with Hallow’s End, as well as all the joy of killing the Headless Horseman with his crazy laugh (that I still hear in the back of my head sometimes…trauma from last year’s Hallow’s End.)

In the meantime, I thought I’d leave you with some fun pictures:

My pally and I don our Murloc suits.  A good time is had by all.

Today, as you are probably all aware, is International Talk Like A Pirate Day.  Although nobody I met out and about followed the strict pirate-themed conversational guidelines, in WoW, everything has gone pirate!  And I learned a lot of things about pirates that I’d never known…the world of pirates is way different than I always thought.

First of all, becoming a pirate is really, really easy.  Just talk to someone dressed like a pirate and VOILA!  Tazha = Full-Fledged Pirate!

Next step?  Ingratiate myself to the higher ups.  I looked all over Booty Bay (now known as Pirate Central) and eventually found an enormous grouping of pirates on the roof of the Auction House.  Assuming that the pirates had pillaged the AH and were celebrating by drinking from the dead AH goblins’ heads while possibly firing guns into the air, I leapt to the roof to join in, wondering how I was possibly going to drink from a probably-still-warm skull.  Instead, I found a bunch of scantily clad pirates dancing with each other, drinking from common mugs, picnicking, lugging around cute and adorable pets, and shooting fireworks like a bunch of Lunar Festival nuts.

With a sigh, I headed over to the Dread Captain Demeza to share some booze and get my achievement.  Maybe, just maybe, I had arrived before all the pillaging and destruction.  No such luck.  With all the menace of the Hamburgler, the Dread Pirate chortled about how Booty Bay was hers for the day (dammit, was she renting a car or terrorizing a seaside community?!), and we shared a mug of what I can only assume was Budweiser.  Possibly Bud Lite.

The media had led me to believe that pirates were terrifying creatures of lust and greed, men who had fallen into such hardship that their only recourse was a seafaring life of crime, like the Somali pirates or the crew of the Black Pearl.  The truth, however, is that pirates are far more like these guys:

Ah, well.  That’s why you can never trust the media.

The deer must die!

The deer must die!

Sometimes as I’m happily jaunting around Azeroth, stopping here and there to herb or mine or unleash vengeance on some random baddie, I will encounter a small, innocent, delicate critter.  You know the type – cute critter face, single digit critter level, low critter HP…  Awww!  Squee!

And at that point one of two things will happen.  In the first scenario, the Evil Closet Monkey (or ECM, for short) who lives in my brain will hop out screaming “DESTROY!”, in which case I will tear said critter in twain before skipping off to my next task.  This is shockingly often the case on my sweet, tree-hug-giving, nature-loving druid, and always the case on my anarchist fire mage.  (My one attempt at semi-role-playing, my alt hunter, is immune to my ECM and only kills sickly gazelles so they won’t infect the rest of the herd.)  In the second scenario, presumably while my ECM is off doing other things like sleeping or watching TV or knitting or getting up to whatever ECMs do in their brain-closets, I will get no such mental urge, and then I will pass the critter by with a merry nod of the head.

The Elusive Feral Penguin (Requires Critter Bites)

The Elusive Feral Penguin (Requires Critter Bites)

Gathering mats for Tazha’s engineering bonanza wasn’t all fun, games, and endless node farming.  While flying over Icecrown, Tazha spotted a small group of critters that had clearly been abandoned by their fellows.  Recognizing from repeated viewings of Wallace and Gromit that penguins are often much more than they seem, she proceeded to watch the cluster as they waddled around on the ice, forlorn and aimless.  They were certainly a miserable little bunch right now, but with the right leader they could be a force for trouble all over Azeroth.  Tazha decided that she was that leader.  (more…)

Pay no attention to the tree...

I took a non-healing alt into Naxx last night, and I discovered something I had never noticed before.  If you really step back to think about it, the wandering Entwives that are druid treeforms are hilarious in battle.

As we leapt into Gluth’s room and began to pour damage into the giant patchwork dog, our group’s druid healer was nowhere near me.  I began my usual happy dps rotation of fire, fire and more fire.  And then, out of nowhere, a tree scooted past me, filling my screen for a second with bark and swirling green tree-hands.  Then she was gone, off to do her tree thing, so quickly it was almost as if it hadn’t happened.  And it occurred to me in an odd out-of-game experience that a tree had just walked past me.  Looking ridiculously out of place in the dungeon filled with the giant dog, I might add.
