Posts Tagged “Awesome”

I don’t do enough shout outs.  People don’t like shout outs – there’s no drama, they are really boring, blah blah blah.  However, as I really can’t call out the umpteen billion bloggers I don’t like for no other reason apart from the fact that I think they can’t write for peanuts… I guess I’ll have to talk about the very few who are left that I do like.  For some reason, all the bloggers I like seem to end up quitting the game.  Bloody bastards.

By the way.  Not being on this list doesn’t mean I think you write like an octopus on drugs with its tentacles tied together*.  I may have just forgotten you.  Or, yeah, I may just think you suck.  Time to get paranoid!

So, in no special order…

Dechion: because he tells it how it is, and tells the community to shut up and stop being a pack of cry babies, whiners, or whatever the hell else they may happen to be doing.  He is also insightful, occasionally funny, and agrees with me more often than not.  Which is totally a requirement for my list of awesomeness.

Kestrel: He wins at English, and it makes me smile.  I should win at English, but after a day of marking essays and drawing waffles and writing “Noooooooooooo!” in giant letters on kids work… my English skills take a massive dive.  He also makes me want to kick ass at writing instead of splashing people’s faces in the kiddie pool.

I shouldn’t lie.  I don’t write “Nooooooooooo!” on kids’ work.  A teacher did that to me in high school (very closely followed by a giant red “No No NO!”), and it made me cranky.  Instead, I draw a picture of a Mage.  They know that is synonymous with fail.

Krizzlybear: because he doesn’t mind that I tell him all the time how much fail he is.  When Blizzard come to their senses and fix the Mage problem, I’ll save his character by providing him with a Succubus disguise.  I’m sure he’ll enjoy it, really.

That and he stupidly stubbornly um… well, he always sticks up for his spec.  No matter what.  Which, I guess, is kinda cool.

(SPOILER: The reclaiming of Gnomeregan?  Really a front to get all the Gnomes together so we can fire bomb them out of existence)

Tamarind: Yeah, he hears it all the time.  I have tried to deny my fangirlism, but he shares my love for Dorf mounting, he’s funny, he’s crude… I guess I just can’t deny it any longer.  Also, I haven’t linked (I think) to Tam before on this blog.  Yay for popping THAT cherry.

Avalonna: THIS POST.  As in the one linked on her name.  Not the one linked on the words THIS POST, because there is clearly nothing linked there.  Yeah, I can see how that could be confusing.

That and she said that purple hair is awesome.  I may be totally susceptible to flattery, especially when it is in regards to my hair.

Ratshag: fricking virile Orcs are hot, OK?

 

Everyone else out there?  Well, you might be OK, I guess…

*For the record.  An octopus on drugs with it’s tentacles tied together trying to write could indeed be awesome.  However, it would probably also be animal cruelty, and, unlike people and bloggers… I like octopi and animals.

In the interest of educating my guildies and friends, I have decided a post is long overdue on the differences between Mages and Warlocks.  Since, y’know, we are so hard to tell apart!

Warlocks

Mages

Summon their powers from the Nether… or somewhere else sufficiently evil and awesome. Summon their powers from Carebear land.  I think.  I’m pretty sure there are flowers and cupcakes.
Have kick ass minions that also look evil and awesome.  They also have scary sounding abilities like ‘Shadow Bite’. Probably don’t have minions.  Unless they have a Squirtle.  Those things are more amusing than intimidating – “I’m going to get you marginally wet!  Squirt!”
Are tough enough to kill themselves if it’s absolutely necessary.  Who else would have the balls to set themselves on fire? Use a variety of sneaky, wimpy tricks such as Invisibility and Ice Block.
Make awesome green healthstones that make the raid smile.  Don’t ask why they are green… Make excessive strudel.  Which lacks tastiness.
Throw around a lot of fire and shadowy doom in an impressive display of power. Throw one of the following: weird purple shit that you’d expect to see coming from a fairy; fire that is infinitely more pathetic looking than my own; stupid frost things that logically SHOULD melt. 

That is, if they aren’t being wimpy and casting Ice Block or something.  Or Blinking away from the fight.

 

Seriously, how hard is it to tell?  If it’s not awesome, it’s not a ‘lock.

 

 

P.S.  In other news, last night after a semi-drunken escapade to the pub, I made an alt in Miss Medicina’s version of the new blogging related guild Single Abstract Noun.  I don’t know how I will go with levelling (I’m kinda fail at that), but it should be fun.  I had a fantastic time going through all the names to see which bloggers I could identify.  Krizzlybear also helped me come up with a great name for my baby Warlock – Sarcolepsy!  Whoo hoo!
