OOC – First Post of the New Year


January 3rd, 2018

So far, I will have to say that it feels pretty much like last year with the difference being that I must remember to use 2018 on my dates now.  Hehe, nope, I wasn’t expecting some huge major thing to happen, however, I was hoping that I’d win the lottery or something exciting.  Well, that didn’t happen, or I’d be someplace where it’s warm with waves washing over my feet.  Nope, still in the Rockies and it’s a tad bit brisk right now.

We stayed home where it was safe and warm on New Year’s Eve and didn’t get out in the traffic and the freezing cold that we had going on at that time.  Can’t say that I wasn’t playing WoW most of the night because I was and felt like garbage on January 1st.  Got up yesterday with the full intention of sitting down to write and play some World of Warcraft and do some proper blog writing – didn’t happen because as soon as I sat down to do that – we lost our internet connection, phones and cable due to an unfortunate construction issue in the neighborhood.

Today was a bit off because I fell asleep on the couch last night and woke up freezing to death, got a throw and curled back up on the couch and went back to sleep some more.   So, today was a truly lazy day and uneventful – played late last night for a few hours and felt rather good about that too.

Luckily my internet and cable seemed to have survived the last couple of days and has allowed me to get into my gaming a bit more.    I know that I have been running around on some of my lowbies and enjoying the different realms that I play on.  It’s always fun to interact with other people in the game and now that the Holiday Season has finally left us behind, I’m sure that there will be things to do and be able to get them done in a timely manner.    

I went on a bit of a binge of resubbing at six-month levels instead of month to month, so, I’ve been spending a bit of time on my alt account – I do have two separate Bnet accounts.  One is completely maxed out with accounts and is the one that I started with in 2005, the secondary account is about two years old and I’ve had a lot of fun just roaming about Azeroth on my own with that one.  Yes, I have too many characters and should cull some of them out, however, I just enjoy toon changing frequently – messes up my progression, however, it’s how I play the game that counts, and it is fun to me.

Some of my old acquaintances have shown back up in the game and that has made it more entertaining.  One can only stay alone for so long without feeling a bit lonely and isolated.  Anyway, the people that came back are equally as much of being altoholics as I am, so, it’s all good.

Okay, time to get back into the game so that I can get in the mood to write some more with my characters.  See you all soon – yes, I finally got caught up on reading all the posts on the blogs that I am following – great writing and reading the adventures that some are having these days too.

  1. I can totally relate.. while I take breaks here and there..I always end up coming back..its like an addiction, and I have finally admitted to myself , WOW will always be my # 1 game of choice.Sometimes the current content will make go ” What were they thinking!” and scratch my head but I think no matter how stupid the storyline gets, I will just go back and play the content I love. Its all about having fun.. and when it stops being fun; take a break , do something else for a while then come back .

  2. So glad to hear some of your old gaming buddies have returned. That must be awesome. I sometimes would love to see a “XX has come online”. I have not lost hope; so many friends stopped playing years and years ago.

    Two accounts – I sure admire that you are able to juggle it. I couldn’t!

    Happy New Year, and looking forward to follow you, ICly and OOCly 🙂 (Those are the right terms, yes?)
