LOL, it always seems to happen but that’s the breaks at my age.
Dental work always sucks even if you put it off if you can. I’ve been dealing with some bad molars (a failed crown and root canal) and a filling that died with it on a second tooth. Lots of infections and such but I kept putting it off and finally had to do the deed. Ouchy!! I was saving up some money to get it done and had to deal with it until I could get it done without bankrupting myself. Got it done a week ago and still having some issues with the refit on a denture, plus, waiting on a new partial. Funtimes but worth it in the long term.
I have played a little bit of WoW and have tried to get a few issues resolved with some characters that got “damaged” during the last patch. Contacted CS and that was a sheer waste of time – just need to backup and regroup and not stress about it.
While I have been dealing with the medical things, decided to do some binge reading and have read a lot of books regarding World of Warcraft, naturally. Some of them were re-reads because it has been a while, and some were new. I sure have been using the heck out of my Kindle and enjoying every minute of it. Going back and reading some of the books helps renew my immersion in my characters and makes me reflect on some of my stories as well, which, does make writing a lot easier for me to do – works for me at least. Even got crazy and got the Chronicles and haven’t even started reading them yet. I’m enjoying my reading because it’s been a good two years since I was able to really “read” a book with any kind of comfort level with my sight. Yep, sight is still not as good as it was but at least I can still fumble my way through a book and not have to worry about it that much.
I have always enjoyed playing World of Warcraft as well as reading the books that go along with the game. I can remember when most of the information we would get about the game was doing the reading on the forums, however, that really hasn’t been the case in the last few expansions.
Speaking of the forums – if you’ve been reading some of the stuff, please take it with a grain of salt because these are not the people that are happy with the game in some way or other. If I was a person looking at the game and didn’t have any knowledge of the game and how it’s played, I wouldn’t want to play it. Sure, there are problems in the game and some of it could have been avoided if Blizzard had listened to the Beta forum people, however, they didn’t listen, and we got socked with a bunch of bugs that were not repaired. Oh well, I’m sure that it will get resolved and I will continue to do the thing of playing and working my way through – lagging as I usually do.
I know that the problems always flare up at the beginning of the newest expansion and people get so nasty about it that it always makes me wonder why they are still playing the game if they hate everything about it. I play at a casual rate and enjoy it even when it’s broken because I know that it will get fixed eventually and I can always go back to it. People yelling to fire this person and that person seems a bit mean and unrealistic – that’s just my opinion.
I know that I will probably start getting back into the game now that a lot of medical problems have been kind of resolved for the time being and will start feeling better. I know that I will never feel like I did a few years ago and have the energy or stamina to play for the hours that I used to play. Hey, it’s reality and sometimes RL takes longer to adult in than it used too.
Still learning my way around on the new computer – ended up having to uninstall and reinstall World of Warcraft and my addons due to having moved the files to the wrong drive. I could not figure out why some of the changes that were being made were not showing up in my files or the game. What’s an SSD and a regular drive and what does it do? LOL, there were some of my issues and I plead ignorance, but I think I have it figured out now.
See you all in Azeroth
