So, yeah, I haven’t been the most active of bloggers as of late and you’ll have to forgive me for that.  There’s a few factors playing into that.  The medication I started taking two weeks ago just destroyed my sleeping at night (so the time of day it’s taken has now changed), and that was leaving me barely awake to be a dad, let alone blog post.  Also, my laptop video display went kerput (we’re thinking faulty wire at this point) and thus I have to HDMI to a tv in order to use it.  Otherwise I slip on Mrs. Amateur’s, but that’s no good for the blog as all my good screenshots are currently on the other one (and moving them over is not something that popped into my head all that fast).

I haven’t had a chance to talk about all the stuff coming with 5.1.  There are several items from the data that’s been made available so far that deserve their own post, to say nothing of just all the items in general (ugh…no more Thrall already).  I haven’t discussed some of the gold making tips I’ve put to use lately that are pretty straightforward and easy.  Nor have I done any of the transmog stuff I wanted to.  But hey, at least I managed to update Laid Back Raids for several weeks again!

Tied in with this has been my lack of gameplay as well.  Sure, some of you see me with great regularity, but you might have noticed the duration of those logins aren’t all that long lately.  I’ve focused primarily on one particular task and because it’s important to me to meet that goal, I haven’t been doing much else.  Plus, I just have other things going on (relating to the previously mentioned medication) that I haven’t really been all that “Azeroth here I come.” 

It’s not going to get much better mind you.  I realized today that I missed out on an awesome Guild Wars 2 Hallowe’en Event and was sad face panda because of it.  However, there’s a new…I don’t even know if event is the word I would use…well, I guess I’ll have to.  There’s a weekend event coming next weekend that’s only going to happen once.  It’s apparently going to introduce a new island to the game, and evolve some aspects of the world a bit in-game as well (this is something I’ve long though MMO’s should do by the way).  I’m intrigued by that and as such will be putting in some time in Tyria.  I’ll still be hopping on WoW, but only to do specific things (like LBR!) I would imagine.  That’s the short term plan.  The way things are going, that might change by this time tomorrow.

In closing, the Cinder Kitten looks amazing and I plan to snag three, given the proceeds go to Sandy The Storm victims.  One’s for me and one is for the Mrs.  Of course that begs the question, what are my plans for the third one?  Stay tuned…

    Sorry to hear that your new meds have been giving you such trouble. I hope that things are getting better by now.

    Hmm, I wonder if your plans for that third Cinder Kitten might have something to do with the Transmogrification stuff you haven’t managed to post quite yet…. I am certainly planning to pick up a Cinder Kitten for myself once it becomes available.

      Actually the kitten and the transmogging you speak of were unrelated. I had wanted to spend the month of November doing a mog a day. The idea was that I would make an outfit based off a loot drop on a character the same day. It just never got off the ground, unfortunately.

    Cinderkitten ftw! OMG JD, you don’t have to apologize for being a person in RL 😛 I only hope you can work out the issues with your medicine! Get RL squared away and the blog will follow – Now, if your are giving out a cinderkitten to really hip warlocks, I might have to put my application in so keep me in mind!

      …and thanks for the kind words and support.

    Hey, life happens, but I’m sure we all forgive you anyways 😛 Looking forward to whatever you post, whenever you post 🙂 Oh, but a mog a day? You crazy man you….

    • JD Kenada November 10, 2012 / 9:48 am

      Yeah, defining crazy on a daily basis. Don’t need to be mogging for that!

    Sorry to hear you’ve been having such a rough trot lately. Hope things look up for you soon. I don’t blame you about the Cinder Kittens 🙂

    • JD Kenada November 10, 2012 / 9:48 am

      Thanks Cymre.

    Sorry for your computer and meds woes, I hope both turn around soon. Yes, I can’t wait for a Cinder Kitten or two. And there was a Halloween Event in Tyria? Hangs head in shame, those characters are probably going to give me a talking to when I get back.

    • JD Kenada November 10, 2012 / 9:49 am

      The Lost Shores event starts Friday at Noon PST. I’m at work. Phase Two starts at Noon PST Saturday…I’m away. The final event is Noon PST Sunday. I’m damn sure planning on being there! lol.

      Apparently there are other things going on throughout as well, though.

    All those bad things are poopie 😦 but those cinder kittens really do look awesome. Glad some stuff is getting sorted, hope that it’s all on the up soon.

    • JD Kenada November 10, 2012 / 10:07 am

      Me too 😀
