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…
