I Was Not Prepared

Well, it’s not how I expected November to go in the slightest.  I came into it with the best of intentions and was looking forward to IntPiPoMo.  Alas, my month was summed up in a recent post and the short is that I didn’t even complete 20% of the challenge.  C’est la vie.  I’m not sad about it, so much as it’s merely an observation that I was unable to get the 50 screenshots this month.

Hard to believe Christmas is just around the corner now.  It seems to have come incredibly fast…and early as some people reading this will attest.  No, I’m not referring to my panther gifts (though I suppose that technically counts).  I’ll explain more over the weekend for those with no idea what I’m talking about.  The rest of you are cheeky buggers.

IntPiPoMo: The Blues (06 & 07)

Two of my favourite shots, showcasing the blue hues that provided bookends for Wrath of the Lich King.  The first one shows the Nexus from the outside. Battling the blue dragonflight was a big portion of our introduction to Northrend, particularly those of us who landed on Borean Tundra rather than the Howling Fjorde.

The second picture is from Halls of Reflection, as we come upon Frostmourne.  The spirits circle around the famed sword.  It was a matter of time before we fought its wielder or became a part of it.

LBR Ulduar

Last night was another Laid Back Raid, with an early start time as we dove into Ulduar.  The last time it was attempted was 25-man on Horde side.  So, with the Alliance storming the compound (and a continued average turnout during Mists) I kept it at 10-man.  We had seven to start and one was Seraphinity (Healblade) who was having internet issues.  So again, played it safe.  Towards the end of Flame Leviathan, Dey and Draynee joined up and with three fights left Magik made it as well.  Poor old Yoggie didn’t have a chance.

Starting early was a wise decision as it is still a lengthy excursion.  Alas, poor Shoryl wasn’t able to get her Transmog helm.  Shucks darn.  Guess we’ll have to go back in at some point.  Fortunately, last night also provided me opportunity for a few more screens for IntPiPoMo (click for larger):

All aboard! Next Stop, Myrmiron!

IntPiPoMo 2012 (01 & 02)


November is National Novel Writing Month.  Every year I think I should do it, and some years I try.  However, I rarely ever reach something resembling success with the project.  Fortunately, Angelya over at Revive & Rejuvenate has a much better idea.  International Picture Posting Month.  The idea is that a picture is worth a thousand words, and thus fifty pictures is worth fifty thousand words and subsequently meets the guideline for NaNoWriMo.  So, while I wanted to start yesterday it didn’t quite work out that way.  So we kick off with two for today (click to get full size):
