Arrangement of Pixels: Rank and File

While it has been quite some time since I’ve written, I wish to report that rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

Sadly, rumors of an extremely busy life outside of the pixilated world of fashion and monsters known as World of Warcraft are not as exaggerated. Dwindling time and dwindling bag space have left me with not much to show of late, but it occurred to me I should do something and make an attempt. I keep promising myself to write of the many raiding and guild changes that have been going on, but time is not favoring that likelihood anytime soon.

Arrangement of Pixels: Darkness and Light

So from darkness there was brought light, and where the light burned brightest, the shadows did grow the darkest.

Opposites attract they say, and the opposing dynamic of my character with my husbands is one I am fond of.

Arrangement of… Yeah I fail this week

Totally getting killed this week. Work, life, WoW, everything. Especially my guild. Want to strangle my guild. So.. very much. AND that evil NPC who has my dress is back to taunt me in Dalaran. Someday, Formal Dangui, you will be mine, and I can cease to hate children’s week.

Who am I kidding? Oh well. My DK is camped in Moonglade waiting, so here’s to vain hope!

I had time for one entry this weekend and I really needed a brain dump, and so you get what came previously. Here in the meantime, a cute Troll Priest!

trollpreestSporting her newly rewarded Juju Hex Robes, BOA Tattered Dreadmist Mantle, and… some lowbie bracers I’m too lazy to look up.

Augh curse you OCD. They are the Barbaric Cloth Bracers. Oh and the Devout Aurastone Hammer. AND the Ceremonial Cloak. Somehow it all matches.

I confess Orgrimmar is not nearly as hard to navigate as I used to complain about. As long as you don’t have to leave the Valley of Strength. All bets are off on winding paths that go behind stupid stores and weird stairs and bridges. Why oh why must Silvermoon be so out of the way? Heck even Undercity I can navigate, if the locations are inconvenient.

Anyway. Here she is, and she is cute. I was going to go with long green swept back braids, but the crazy pixie haircut wouldn’t stop niggling at my brain. Pink punk rocker troll? Yes please. And I’m usually so not a pink type of person.

Le Roi Est Mort, Vive Le Roi!

It appears to have been quite the busy week, in game and out. Work has been quite busy, and the precarious weekday balance of raiding + family raising in between is not one I wish to risk tipping with added time spent writing, no matter how much I enjoy doing it.

As a result of this, I have composed the better part of three or four blog posts and one, maybe one and a half short story vignettes in my head during the lengthy ‘thinking’ time that is my commute. Given the lack of express train routes between Podunkton and Wanna Be Chic Urban Centre of DC Suburbia as well as the lack of portable speech recognition word processing software and hardware in my possession, they are all sadly locked in my head fading word by word as inspiration flits elsewhere.

So let this be a warning, this may be a conglomerate ramble of all those things with most of the important bits missing! I bear no responsibility for the comprehensibility of my writing from this point forward, or even this point backward.

On the Arrangement of Pixels: Rags to Riches

After a week of soaring highs and hair-tearing lows, I considered deeply the thought of blowing this off again. But on my journeys from store to store in the plane known as “IRL”, an idea occurred to me that I had to laugh at.

Financial difficulties being at the forefront of some of these frustrations, I thought I would do a quick and easy showing of bank alt sets.

Game Over!

So I finally beat the game. Saved the princess (or just Azeroth), won the day and saw the final epic cinematic as Arthas’ last breath as Lich King expired.

I could quit WoW and never be really hard pressed to go back (at least until Cataclysm). I probably won’t, because there are still things to do. There are 3 more difficulty settings to kill him on, and I’m psyched about that, but the real moment was that first epic ending scene I had been waiting for so long.

My guild and husband are still amazed at my ability to avoid all spoilers until that point. So as a courtesy to anyone else who has steadfastly avoided them and not yet seen the end of the game, there will be spoilers after the jump! To skip past, click here.

On the Arrangement of Pixels: Expanding Horizons

This weekend has proven to be a very busy weekend. Signs of this may include, but are not limited to, my still referring to it as ‘this weekend’ though Monday has already reared its ugly head as well as my working through the list of things to do ‘this weekend’ well into Monday.

I spent most of my time-wasting this weekend fretting over what to wear! My newly level 80 hunter occupied the bulk of my WoW time finding her things to look cute (and shoot good) in, and the remainder was taken in upgrading my pony. With recent affirmations that someone actually might be reading and looking forward to this, panic set in.
