The weekend that was, was a rather enjoyable one. We kicked things off Friday with a drive down to Toronto and an unexpected stay overnight (next time, no Amateur Jr at the hotel..oi!). The main purpose of going down Friday was to join Cheetah Dave (aka Killthryn for my fellow Laid Back Raiders) his son (and guildmate Wontan), and the rest of the family as they were up from the US. Mrs. Amateur commented how great it was to finally meet them, and I argued we weren’t meeting as far as I saw. Granted, we’d never sat face to face before…but it certainly wasn’t a first meeting. And, no, in our infinite wisdom nobody took a picture.
I managed to take a picture on Saturday night, however. There’s Tome’s Warlock on her spankin’ new Yellow Qiraji mount. As I promised her, she ended up with the Green, Blue, and Yellow mounts during our Laid Back Raids of Ahn’Qiraj. We had a great turnout again and I know Repgrind was rather happy to get a shield that dropped. Even I snagged a pair of Enchants I didn’t have (one of which Siori still needs). The Horde turned out for a great run, and I believe continued on to Black Temple after the Amateurs and Tome called it a night.
I then had the grand opportunity last night of sitting down with Hydra and Fimlys over at Twisted Nether to chat it up. We discussed a good number of topics, and I stuck around to join them in looking at the news for the week. I had forgotten there wasn’t a show last week so it was nice being on when it came time to discuss the Mists release date and even more so to discuss Need More Rage coming to an end this past week. It was a humble experience to be invited onto the show, and hopefully it went well. I know I carried things a bit longer than normal. Apparently I like to talk or something. So, I wanted to just thank them both again for having me, and also thank all the people who managed to sit in on the show or send supportive wishes beforehand. I’d recognize all the folks I saw drop in, but I just know I’d accidentally miss someone and would hate to do that.
So all in all, I had a great weekend with so many friends from the game and the community. I started my holidays on Thursday and this weekend ended up being a pretty great way to kick it off.
