Monday, Monday

I Can't Come In To Work Today...

As I level Archaeology, I’m finding some pretty interesting things.  This is the result of the Ancient Amber.  Despite it’s description I had to try it out anyway.  Turns out it does exactly what it says -who knew?  I will say this, I’m quickly understanding why the Archaeology profession has had so many expletives thrown its way…and I’m not even at 200 yet!  Go “way over there.  No, sorry, you’re off by 21 degrees so try again.  Another 50 feet.  Another 50.  Another 5.  Another 5.  Another 5.  Back 3.”

Definitely gets annoying fast.  I can only imagine how bad it’s going to get when I’m actually at the point of just getting those last relics and rare items.

For those who were out and about with us on the weekend, not only Kara and Icecrown but also Ahn’Qiraj last night, we’re getting things a bit organized with the idea this group of folks can run stuff with regularity on Sunday nights from 8-10.  Keep up to speed around here or Effy’s blog.

Finally, just a couple of Transmog notes.  For starters, congratulations to Navimie.  Yesterday morning she won her server’s WoW-Factor.  After getting 5k along with several others, she took home the 100k grand prize.  I was chatting with her when it happened and it was a great moment.  Apparently some folks threw some hate her way on her server.  Clearly they are better transmogrification judges than anyone else.  Or, they’re just jealous.  That seems slightly more likely.

Also just a friendly reminder that the next Transmogrification event is just around the corner.  Tome, Effy, and myself will be back on the judging panel but the doors were opened should anyone else want to judge as well.  Today is the deadline to let me know if you’re interested.

    Not interested in judging (I have a real hard time being critical of others), but quite interested to see what you all have in store.

    I so wanted to come with you all to AQ last night, if it’s going to be a regular thing I will plan my Sunday evenings better from now on!

    Yes! I too am anxious to hear what you have planned!

    Archaeology, I have to take a few weeks break every once in a while, I start to go a little crazy after getting about six consecutive stupid little Sketches of a Desert Palace.

      Well, you designed the logo for the next one so you at least have an idea 😉

      And indeed, the consensus is Sunday nights from roughly 8-10 EST.

    Cross-dressing rogue uses a great add-on to lessen that factor of annoyance; I, however, enjoy the walk, stopping to smell the mageroyal, as it were. And yes, whatever you got cooking, I want in!

      You want in the kitchen or to sit at the dinner table?

        Friends hang out in the kitchen–as long as it’s not the kid table, I’m good! 🙂

          Just wanted to clarify 😉

    I adored the run last night, but it has to take a back seat to my guild run(s). I’ll letcha know when I can make it to those, though.

    I’m really looking forward to watching the next event you have cooked up. I’m not very good at mogging myself, but I love looking at all the outfits.

      No problem at all. Come when it’s convenient. As I said to Effy last night, we seem to average between 7 and 12 people. Some are Horde only, some are Alliance only, and everyone has their own schedule.

      There’s going to be nights where I’m not there, or Effy isn’t there, but it’s more to the effect of “this is what’s going on this week if you want to go.” It could be a run to get a certain achievement, it could be just because 1-2 people need to hit the raid for hopes of a transmog drop.

      As I say, the next even t I came up with during the early stages of Mog Madness. It has far more differences than similarities, from start to finish. The reason I put the judge sign-up deadline in was because I want to take some time to go over things with the other judges, fine tuning and adjusting before it’s presented to the masses.
