Phew. Exactly 1 month and 10 days since my last post. That’s not good. Well, considering I haven’t exactly been playing WoW for nearly all of that time, it would be slightly hard to blog about WoW. Well, finally, months after I first proposed it, I’m ready. Ready to step fully into the deep dark abyss that is Wordpress… (queue spooky music now.) Obviously, I’ll keep this site up for archival purposes, although I doubt people will ever be dying to read old post’s I’ve written. But this is the last post here; all of my future posts will be at my new blog. I’ll miss this place, but I’m glad I’m moving. And move I shall, I’m turning out the lights, you’ll never see me again here. See you on the other side…

It sucks, losing internet for 2 weeks. It sucks even more when you find out after you call your internet provider that you were just a total nOOb and just had a simple cable slightly unplugged. But it does explain the radio silence on the blog over the past two weeks. And the utter fail to move the blog when I said I would. I’m going to keep this post short, seeing as I haven’t been on WoW in two weeks, and therefore don’t have much to talk about on a WoW blog. Also, summer is over ( :( ) and so now it’s back to the daily grind. That, surprisingly, means that sometimes I have more important stuff to do than play WoW.

Still working on the picture contrast screwy thing. This is starting to annoy me. If I don’t fix this soon, I’ll have to can all those post ideas I have that require pictures. (i.e; all of them) I already can’t do the 3.2 post anymore, since 3.2 was released so long ago. If I don’t fix this I’ll have to can the Blizzcon post/s too.

Well, obviously, I’m back from my vacation. It seems WoWwise, I picked the worst week ever to isolate myself from civilization. Not that I didn’t enjoy it, it’s just so much happened in the short 6 days I was gone, it was impossible for my brain to digest it all without it exploding with happiness.
When I got home, the first little bit of WoW news I saw was 3.2.2 and the Onyxia revamp. So I scurried around the internetz making sure it wasn’t a big fat lie, and when I found out the facts I had a short little happydance. And after, I had an even shorter moment of silence, for the fallen, the brave, the now uncompletable Onyxia attunement quest chain!
Then, of course, I caught wind of the ‘leaked’ Cataclysm rumors, which of course turned out to be one hundred percent true, and I nearly fainted in excitement. The only downside to it was the whole ‘human hunter’ thing. ARGH!!!! I have wanted a human hunter ever since I started playing this goddamn game 2 years ago! And now you give it to me, a few months after I finally give up and make a draenei hunter instead!?!? Now I will never get to experience the joys of a human hunter! Instead I get to stare at the spikey-haired, tentacle-faced, fat-assed behind of a draenei! Not cool!
Then there was Blizzcon. Ah Blizzcon. It’s only one day in and I’m already excited beyond belief. Personally, I’m not watching, going to, or covering Blizzcon. I will never make that mistake again. Having the news drip-feeded to me as they get posted on MMOChampion, hoping that they didn’t miss anything, is agonizing. Next year, it’s the incredibly convenient live internet stream for me!
And right about when I realised that, was when I realised that I really should have switched to Wordpress and gotten all of this sorted out a long time ago. I have so many posts that it would be so much better on the Wordpress blog I’d love to do! I have a name, but I’m working on a site address, and of course there’s still that weird image contrast distortion thingy going on, which is very bad, considering 2 of the most important posts I want to write are nearly completely composed of pictures. Sux.
So on a Blizzcon note, I will be giving my thoughts on it, but in multiple posts, (It’s only the 1st day and I already have 3 posts lined up on it.) and on a Wordpress blog. I need to hurry the hell up on getting the site switch ready, so I’ll try and get everything ready ASAP. But for now, I recommend everyone go over to the official WoW Cataclysm site, and check out everything that’s there. (There is a trailer! (Holy Sh*t! Freaking lava and destruction everywhere!!))

Ok, I am now officially AFK. Until the 15th anyway. That’s 6 days of computerless relaxation and fun. Ahh, summer. But luckily for you guys, I have a few AFK posts to put up. Including this one. I had just planned this post to be a short one, to confirm that I was gone for the week. But as I was writing it, I realized I haven’t really actually posted about WoW for a while. Which isn’t too good, considering this is a WoW blog, not a whatever the hell is on my mind blog. So I thought I’d just give a quick update on what I’m up to in WoW to tide you guys over until I can dedicate a post to something WoW related.
Honestly, I’m mostly lvling up professions on all three of my mains right now, as I’m just bored out of my mind on WoW anyway, with serious lvling on hold until 3.2 hits, so why not fill it with doing something productive ingame? And even better, I just discovered the wonder that is podcasts. (inorite?) I’ve always considered them worthless, as I wasn’t willing to spend a whole hour (Or more!) doing nothing but listening to a podcast. Then I realized that when I’m grinding up my professions, I’m wasting an hour or two bored out of my mind anyway, so I may as well listen to a podcast while I’m doing it! Right now I’m only regularly listening to Sidhe Devils Gone Wild, with BBB, Ratshag, Bre, and Lady Jess, and Gamerbooth’s podcast, but I do occasionally pull something random off of ITunes. ( By the way, Gamerbooth is gaming/Let’s Play forum created by JosefVStalin, Lucky, VadimCC and Sagetbh; all prominent ‘Let’s Play’ers’ on YouTube. I advise you check them out, as their videos are very entertaining.)
Other than that, there isn’t very much else going on with me WoWwise right now. My pally is slowly, slowly gearing up to get ready for heroics, (And spamming dailies.) I’ve started to play on my Deathknight and Hunter again, now that the ‘OMG I gotta get my first character to 80 and Northrend is so friggin’ awesome!’ rush is over, and that’s about it. I’m just, like everyone else, huddled around, waiting for 3.2 to hit. (If 3.2 has hit by the time this goes up, I apologize, it hadn’t at the time of writing.
Edit: Yes, I know 3.2 hit a while back. I'm actually planning a big 3.2 post, but since it's got a lot of pictures in it, I'm waiting until I fully switch to Wordpress to post it. (Still need a name.)

It’s all going good so far with my blogging revamp. Pictures are working just fine on Wordpress for me now, and so I’m just testing a few other things and I’ll be ready to move. If you’re interested in seeing how I’m doing on it, visit my testing blog here. I should probably be ready to move the blog after I get back from my vacation. Vacation? Oh yes, I’m going AFK from Aug. 9-15, about a week. (Don’t worry, I do have 1 or 2 AFK posts perfect for such an occasion…) But being ready to move a blog, and moving a blog, are entirely different things, the latter being dependent on how soon I can think of a good new name. Like I’ve said before, I’m horrible at making names, so It may be a while, unless I get some flash of inspiration.
