"Guild Meeting" and New Friends!

Patch 3.2.2

Happy (belated) Thanksgiving! Whew, what a busy weekend. Time to wind back up and get back in the grind of things. Hope your Thanksgiving was as enjoyable as ours!

One notable event this weekend was our "Guild Meeting". It wasn't really a guild meeting, it was really just us hanging out at my place, nothing official. lol. ^^ So, most members of my tiny li'l guild are local and Nuku and I invited everyone over for a second Thanksgiving of sorts. We made a turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes.. it was our first Thanksgiving as hosts, so that was a bit nerve wracking, but in the end everything turned out better than I had expected!

It was so nice to finally meet Lucrene (Jadella in my guild) and her man, Peppovitch! I was so afraid that we'd find out that we only would make good vent buddies, but I am very happy to say that I think we clicked. ^_^ *hopes Miss Mojo feels the same* I can't wait 'til we hang out again.

Another "event" was that it was my birthday on Saturday. We hosted the "guild meet" on Saturday too, I just never told anyone it was my birthday cuz I didn't want ppl to feel obligated to come over or bring anything. *feels sneaky*

In other news, I'm considering this my second favorite birthday present this year (first being the 20" LCD Nuku got me..) and although the gift isn't a gift, and the person it's from had no idea it was my birthday, I'm still considering it an awesome "gift"!! So, Raven.Sylph.G, a very talented, up and coming Machinima Producer, has decided to make a music video for my cover of Ryan's Ninja Raiders, and she sent me a work in progress clip! I'll be sure to post the link to the finished video when she's worked her magic! And if you haven't seen her work before, definitely check out her YouTube page: Raven.Sylphe Productions!

That's it for now so, thanks for stopping by! And please, if you have a blogger or an OpenID, don't be shy, leave a comment!

It's a Small World of Warcraft

Patch 3.2.2

My husband just found out that our neighbors in the apartment below us play WoW too. =) They play horde, though, we didn't ask what server they're on. I always find it amusing when you run into another person who plays the game, the first question that gets answered regardless of whether or not someone asked is, "What faction do you play?" And only if they play the same faction as you, does the conversation ever get to "What server are you on?" Hehe.

My Guild's Website

Patch 3.2.2

Well, I couldn't sleep last night. I thought about playing WoW, but server reset was happening this morning. It's funny how I always seem to want to pull an all-nighter on Monday nights. Oh well, I still got my WoW fix by updating my guild's website a little bit. I made a guild "logo" so to speak. I may change it a bit later, make it more 'alliancey' perhaps(?), but for now I think its sexy enough to put up.

And please go here to see the logo in place with the pretty background^^. But, now that I actually think about it, I realize that I really didn't do anything WoW related last night at all. I mainly just made a guild logo and edited some CSS.

I use Guildomatic.com to host our guild site, and although it's really easy to use and quick to set up, I find their default styles needing... refinement. (Too much padding in this table cell, not enough definition between divs, etc...) So, I chose the "(WoW) Battalion" theme to work with as a template, since it's got the look and feel closest to how I want our site to look and feel. ^^ I'm just editing the CSS based on that particular theme's stylesheet where I see a tweekin' needed. And if you don't know how much of a NotePad/TextEdit-raw-html-css nerd I am, consider yourself informed. Oh and also: our guild name has nothing to do with that Stephanie Meyers' Twilight Series Saga or whatever. (It is, however, 100% Midori Snyder's New Moon, my favorite novel/trilogy.)

Growing the Guild

Patch 3.2.2

Nuku and I ran into a couple hordies who were messing around in Stormwind last week, and Nuku decided to hop on a low level horde toon of his own to see if they wanted to join us on ventrilo. Only the priest joined us, but it was pretty cool because we ended up having so much fun I think it helped them in making the decision to finally faction change over to Alliance. =) So, I'm really happy to have Mierdal and Zeonn in New Moon. Welcome, guys. ^^

New Gear and The Guild!

Patch 3.2.2



Nuku bought me a [Li'l K.T.] earlier today, just thought I'd mention that b4 I forget. Here's the link to get your very own Kel'thuzad or Pandaren Monk, AND donate to charity to boot! Blizzard Store

So anyway, I got new gear yesterday. I'm not a gear whore or anything, cuz I don't like raiding a whole lot, but I like posting my new stuff just so you know I'm still alive... in-game that is =). I've been mainly helping my friends level when I'm on, I do my cooking/JC dailies, and try to do the heroic daily and that's about it.  (On a li'l sidenote about raiding: the only thing I never liked about raiding was how much time of my day it took, but that's mainly because when I raided, it was always late at night... but maybe if New Moon grows and we have enough people to do some 10-mans, I'd be glad to. Especially because I know and get along with everyone in my guild so far.) =)



So, the heroic daily put me at 46 [Emblems of Triumph]! And I got this: [Epaulets of the Devourer]. Yay to no more ugly ass Tier 7 shoulders. Then we ran a heroic ToC and I got this: [Aledar's Battlestar] to replace my off-hand ([The Stray]).


I put +hit gems in both since I'm sure I'm not yet hit caped and I can't remember for the life of me what my hit cap should be unbuffed.. I think its 17% or is that too high? Anyway, I'm not too worried about it atm, but when DarksparklesMangoTaursparkles, and Jadella get closer to 80, I'll start thinking about it.


Oh, and The Guild! Here's the last 2 episodes! Sorry for not keeping up with them as fast as they post 'em. If I'm too slow for ya, follow @theguild on Twitter or just search "The Guild" on MSN Mondays at Midnight (PST).


SEASON 3, EPISODE 8

I love getting harassed by lvl ONEs!

Patch 3.2.2


I find it very amusing when lvl 80s hop on a low level alt and start talking shit. Just yesterday, some lvl 1 priest whispered me and asked why I didn't attack a horde DK in SW. Instead of putting him on ignore like I should have, I explained the situation since I thought it was funny and unique in that I was on vent with said horde DK ^^. Which was a fun story on its own, but maybe more on that later if I remember.


Anyway, to sum things up, lvl 1 priest makes fun of my gear (to which I honestly don't care), saying, "Oh that DK was probably a lvl 70 or something," and he proceeds to call me, and I quote, "shicken shit". So, I ask him who's the chicken, afraid of revealing his main's identity. He continues to explain that he has "8 lvl 80's..." and he mocks WoW in general, which is really funny, because if people despise the game so goddamned much, WHY do they keep playing?! RoFL.


So, this guy hops on his main and starts speaking in "say", saying things like, "Isolte, I heard you're married, right? And you put your husband in the hospital for driving him insane... Everyone put Isolte on their ignore lists..." blah, blah, blah.. I'm a little weirded out at the fact that he even knew I'm female and he was trying to personally offend me, but I just kept thinking, "If I say anything at all, it will only egg him on." So, I just decided to ignore him. Not the put-him-on-my-ignore-list kind of ignore, cuz I hate thinking that I seem oblivious when ppl try to send me tells, even if he/she is a complete fucking douchbag, but I just went off to a different area to do my own thing.


Oh yeah, and the funny thing about this too was that the guy's main is in Massacre, my old guild, lol. So, Nuku told his cousin, a high ranking officer in Massacre, about this dumbass, and Nuku's cousin assured us that if I was bothered again, he'd surely threaten Mr. Douche. Which was kinda nice since the guy was a dickhead who only cares about raiding and getting better gear, so there was potential of him having to look for a new guild... But he stopped bugging me very shortly after that. I don't know if Nuku's cousin actually said anything to him, but in the end it didn't really matter.


But seriously, why do people that "hate WoW" keep playing the game if it's "sooo lame"? The only answer I can see clearly is that those people still play so they can terrorize other players, lol. ^^
