Praise for CafePress

Patch 3.3.5

I felt that this was important enough for it's own post, so here's something to note about the shirt I'm wearin' in my previous vlog and some praise for CafePress' amazing customer service! So, I received my order of 4 different styles of tops from CafePress the day before I made my last vlog. Since the blue one is my favorite of the lot, I decided to wear it first. And I'm glad I did because shortly after I recorded the vlog, I noticed that there was a tiny hole on the front of the shirt where the print starts (close to the left armpit, not noticable in the video). It must have been a snag from the printing machine, but other than the hole, the print and feel of the shirt is top quality. :)

So, I called up CafePress' toll free customer service today and their Satisfaction Guarantee is more than I hoped for! They're shipping me a brand new shirt (hopefully sans hole *giggles*) and the best part is I get to keep the holy one! I mean, it is a big enough hole that I'm going to try to patch it somehow so it doesn't get any bigger, but now I'll kind of have 2 of this cute li'l top! Yay!

And I know it may seem like I am trying to convince you to get one for yourself.. and I sort of am. :) But I'm mostly just sharing my experience with CafePress because it is my first time ordering from them and I am truly pleased with their service!

Brew Barking!

Patch 3.3.5

Here with another How-I-Do-It video complete with commentary. :) Enjoy!

Now this is racin'!

Patch 3.3.5

My favorite part of Brewfest is definitely the Alliance [There and Back Again] "daily" that involves riding a ram between the Brewfest grounds and Kharanos to pick up and deliver kegs. My husband and I were curious to find out just how many laps one can do, so I busted out the stopwatch and timed my husband on his run. :)

I really believe he found THE best way to do this only using 2 of the 4 apple barrels located on the "track".

His method:
1. Run directly toward the Apple Barrel located just after the tiny bridge and jump over it.
2. Run directly toward the 3 trees that are on the left side of the path (don't run ON the path because you'll miss the barrel) and jump over the 2nd Apple Barrel located just behind the snow mound.
3. Turn to head back before even catching the Keg!
4. Hit up the same 2 Apple Barrels on the way back.
5. Turn around at the quest giver/as soon as you throw the Keg.
6. Repeat!

Here are his lap times:

Lap #TimeLap #Time
100:44.21000:39.9
200:40.61100:40.5
300:42.11200:40.9
400:40.41300:42.6
500:40.41400:39.6
600:40.91500:41.9
700:41.01600:40.5
800:54.51700:41.4
900:41.7


And if you didn't understand my text explanation of how to do it, here's a video of me running around on my druid! XD

Brewfest is here!

Patch 3.3.5

I'd write up a fancy schmancy guide, 'cept, the one at Wowhead.com seems to be everything I'd tell you anyway. Lol.

Now, all I need for [Brewmaster] is for the dailies to reset in like 30 minutes so I can turn in [This One Time, When I was Drunk...] for the meta achievement [Down With the Dark Iron]. And I need to get 200 [Brewfest Prize Tokens] to purchase a ["Brew of the Month" Club Membership] for [Brew of the Month]. Whew, that was a lot of Wowhead links...

Anyway, cheers! *raises her stein of Gordok Grog!*

Sharing is Caring

Patch 3.3.5

Hey buddies ^_^. Prepare for me to sound like a commercial cuz I'm gonna ask you guys a favor. You can potentially help me while helping yourselves too though.

So, Have you ever heard of Dropbox? It's a pretty neato burrito FREE site and application (both Mac and PC compatible) that allows you to share files easily with others and/or just yourself across multiple computers.

The favor I have to ask of you is to sign up for a free account using my referral link. The free account can host up to 2GB of shtuff!! ^_^ So, if you think this kind of file sharing application thingy is for you, please watch the video demonstration and/or just sign up here and hook this draenei up with 250MB more of FREE space (per referral up to 8GB for meee!)

EDIT: If you sign up through my referral, you also get an extra 250MB! Sign up without the referral and you only get the 2GB. XD Thanks for finding that out for me, Nuku, honey.

Thanks people! XOXO

Blogger's gettin all fancy shmancy XD

Patch 3.3.5

Blogger's got some new features that I'm totally liking. I checked the new little checkbox thingy that shows "social networking" links at the end of each post so people can more easily "share" my shtuff. Not that anything I say is ever worth sharing.. XD

I love integration. Did I ever tell you that? Maybe it's the utopian-love-everything-idealist in me? *shrugs* ^_^

EDIT: I don't see the changes.. Hmm. Oh ya, I also like playing with new toys if I haven't mentioned that too. I guess I'd make a good bug tester.

Naming Violations

Patch 3.3.5

Thanks to a ReTweet by @mentalshaman, I saw this article:

Naming Violations in World of Warcraft

If you are generally someone who cares about how other people feel, this article is definitely worth the read. Something the article touched on that I believe was incredibly well put is a very valid defense for when people label those who wish to change the way things are on the internet as "too sensitive" or "ignorant to the way the internet just IS". I'm so sick of people online defending how they hurt others because "they can" since "it's the internet."

I'm so with Metaneira on this...

"Exposure to it doesn’t make it okay. And I fail to see why reacting to sexist, racist, homophobic language is somehow irrational or weak. Having an emotional reaction doesn’t shut off your ability to reason. Reacting to hate speech with anger, fear, or sadness doesn’t mean you can’t address the issue logically."

I mean, I'll admit it, I am no saint when it comes to how I interact with guildies on vent and in chat. And I will slip up from time to time and say a, "That's gay," every once in a while... It's a hard habit to break when I never learned why it was a bad thing to say until it was already embedded in my vocabulary. But, I hear it when I say it now and I readily ask if I offended anyone and apologize either way. I am trying to break my habit by replacing the phrase with something way more appropriate like, "That's shitty." Lol. (Or "That's poopie," depending on who I'm around.) :p

But I guess my point is: It is ignorant to allow the negative behavior to continue by being a part of it. So, go read that article if you haven't already and let me know what you think.

Imposters!

Patch 3.3.5

So, I decided to look up my first WoW toon that I ever made on the armory, a night elf druid named "Emberisolte". And I found TWO other Emberisolte's.... It kinda weirds me out because I dunno if I should be flattered or paranoid. But for the record, the only toon named Emberisolte that IS me is the lvl 25 nelf Druid on Uther realm. Here are the other two who are not me lol:



and...

A level 12 draenei hunter on Shu'halo whose armory profile I can't link :( because of an "unexpected error". Oh well..

I'd link my druid's profile too, but there's an error for her for some reason too. May be because my account is curently inactive lol. =/ Oh well.. I'm tempted to send in game mail to the other Emberisolte's when I reactivate my account just to say HI. lol.
