Why I can’t have nice things.

This is Sajja, a monk. See that pretty robe she’s wearing? Nightfire Robe? Well, Miss Shaman had some gold to burn, and saw the pattern on the BMAH for about 1kgold. She really wanted it, so over bid. And won. For 4kgold. And then promptly saw three of the same patterns for sale on the regular AH for about 143 gold.

I need to stop playing this game.

 

That’s all I need to say.

 

Sweetness & Boredom

So many of you have been enjoying the Legion PTR, giving us great tips so we’re prepared, but alas, I am going full-on grasshopper, screw the ants, being lazy, making stuff, and doing whatever is my fancy. For a few months, something wasn’t right — my hips constantly hurt, and turns out I have mild arthritis in both hips. It’s okay — I’m going to make sure I keep walking, etc. but sitting and playing for hours isn’t and can’t be my life anymore. If I sit for awhile, I need to be writing or planning. Or planning writing. Mataoka hasn’t spoken to me in a while: every time I log on I sense this sentient-being exasperation coming from her. She is bored. She’s dying to redecorate the Garrison, or do time walking dungeons a BIT MORE FASTER PLEASE, but alas, none of these things are in her control. And perhaps that’s the heart of boredom: when we don’t feel any sense of control, we give up. And when we give up, nothing engages us.

I know there are a few things that I will regret if I don’t do before Legion comes out, but damn if I feel like it. I haven’t even seen the Warcraft movie yet. (!) I will, I will…maybe even tomorrow. For now, I’ll just enjoy spreading a few pixels around and gazing at her pretty face. She’ll find some substance soon.

Isolation

 

June: busy and painful.

Between me and Tome we’re falling apart. She can’t sit, and I can’t seem to stand enough, and well, just damn. Today I’m home with the wussiest of all things — double ear ache. Nothing dramatic, just need to find some Claritin and clean MY DAMN HOUSE.

Because relatives will be here soon.

And I’m depressed about politics.

And yeah.

But I did finally manage to get enough crystal thingies for the doohickymabob. I am so far behind everyone, and all my buddies got Betas for Legion, and well, damn.

Okay. Enough of this. I’ll come back when I have something more interesting to say.

June.

/sigh

 

 

Arrogance.

I really hate the new Instagram logo.   And I’m not sure why I give two poops. Reading rationale and “you’ll get used to it” from the designers, (yes, we took your adored, beloved, cherished skeuomorphic little cutey-pie app logo and made it look like every other turd design out there) I had a moment of PTSD for when Blizzard changed our models, and told us, too, we would ‘get over it.’

I’m not.

What the f*ck is that, anyway? Is it the special snowflake bullshit for 20-30 somethings,that every piece of art is refrigerator worthy? I’m sorry to break this to you, gentlemen, but you are amateurish.

Are there bigger problems in the world? Yes. Am I getting my panties twisted? Perhaps. Just for once I’d like something left alone.
