Well, I finally broke away from the office and went out to have some fun with the holiday. Sure, I missed out on going with Uncle Zed and Dooddah because they were tired of waiting on me to go with them and went without me. That’s okay because I know that I have been buried alive with the paperwork and getting all of the contracts out to the employees that could do the job. The Boss has been busy doing whatever it is that he really does and I’ve been holding down the Fort. No, I think that I just need to start doing other things other than working. I know, I know, time is money, however, if you have all the gold in the world and you die, you can’t take it with you. Might as well start enjoying life.
I did take off and go to Orgrimmar to see what I could see and start doing my Trick or Treating, fun things that you can get sometimes and the people that you can meet is all part of it. I am a very social goblin and spending all of this time locked up with work really does tend to make me more than a little bit cranky. I’ve actually started locating some more of our family members too, which is going to make it even nicer for the holidays when we can all get together and revel one another with our tales of how we escaped the trials, tribulations and disasters back home. Yeah, I know, we can’t ever go back home, however, that doesn’t mean that sometimes we want to talk about things the way that they were before the volcano went off.
While I was out doing this bucket chasing, I thought I might try my hand again at this archeology thing too. That’s a pretty lucrative sideline for gold and I haven’t been taking advantage of it like I should have. Oh, I know I will never be as wealthy as Gallywix or anything like that. A girl would like some new clothes and maybe a nice house to live in, you know? I know that Dooddah is always prattling on about the new gear she bought with the money she has made off some of the artifacts she’s been able to sell. I know the little scamp sells stuff outside of the company and that’s okay, it’s her way of making money and I can’t blame her for wanting to work around the edges of the company while she is doing it.
I know that most of my friends live in Kalimdor and I have been stuck in Silvermoon City with all of those elves which can get to be real annoying sometimes. I have yet to get out and really explore anything in the Eastern Kingdoms because I’ve been in the office. Well, I think that I am going to start getting out more and getting away from the city as often as I can.
Oh, let’s not even talk about Shattrath. I swear if the Draeni looks down her nose at me one more time, I’m going to punch her in the nose. I thought Blood Elves were arrogant, however, they can’t hold a candle this Space Goat. Yeah, sure, I even talked to the Boss about it and he told me that I was going to have to come out with some kind of working agreement with this Magdamia person. Come on, man, she’s from the Alliance and I’m Horde, just because you like sleeping with the enemy doesn’t mean that we all kind of bend the rules that way too. I know that this Maggie can really set me off pretty quickly because I think that she has figured out which of my buttons to push to make me mad – she speaks some Orcish although I can barely understand her. I know I’d have to jump on a chair to punch her in the nose, however, there are times that it would be well worth the indignity of having to do that. It’s not like I can’t hit her with a spell or something – I just think the satisfaction of smacking her one time physically would definitely be worth the extra effort. Oh, she thinks that her people are more technologically advanced than us goblins – well, I don’t see anything that says we crashed a space ship that we built into someone else’s planet either. So, we may blow things up accidently now and then, however, we seem to be better at things that her folks are, right? Well, enough of that, I’m gonna change the subject because it’s making my good time into a bad one.
I will have to say that I enjoyed flying all over Kalimdor trying to get to some of the buckets because let’s be honest – those Alliance people do not like to share anything. Sheesh! You’d think that one piece of candy would break the bank or something. Besides, I think our Wicker Man looks better than theirs anyway. We got smart this year and it’s in the courtyard at UC so the Alliance really have a tough time trying to douse our guy.
I had to laugh because I kept thinking about Zednick and his affinity for going around whizzing on the fires even when there seemed to be impossible odds to keep him from doing it – he says they were hard-pressed to keep up with him and his aim was always true. It’s gotta be a guy thing or a Zed thing, that was fun anyway – the Harvest Festival.
Well, I had better get busy because I am planning on meeting up with some of my friends in Orgrimmar and we’re going to go out and hit some more buckets. The candy is good and sometimes we just enjoy the company and the traveling – a few good Inns too.
