I have such a headache and I wish Zippie would stop yelling at me this morning. She’s mad because she gave Tymer and I some contracts to complete, which we did, however, we also went to Faire. We were in the area and we both thought that we deserved some time off and time to have a little bit of fun.
We were smart enough to put everything that we had collected in the bank before going to the Faire because you never know if some rogue is going to pinch your money or other valuables. Yep, rogues steal from just about anyone they think they can get away with it on. Been there and done that already and wasn’t in the mood to be without a lot of money again. I kept some money and so did Tymer so that we could buy our food and drinks and tickets for the rides – yeah, it’s all about having fun, which we did.
I better explain about Tymer, she’s a cousin that has shown up in Orgrimmar without much of a big hurrah other than the fact that survived all of the stuff before she got there. She was really surprised to see most of the Pratfalls were already there and well established too, so, naturally, she jumped on board with Morningstar Enterprises. It’s been fun running around with her because she isn’t a stick in the mud like my sister has turned out to be.
I wasn’t real happy when we were all living in Silvermoon, too many elves, and there wasn’t much I could do for entertainment in the area because I don’t think they really like goblins if the truth were to be known. Of course the next big city was the Undercity which really wasn’t my cup of tea either because the place always smells bad and it’s full of Forsaken – not what I’d call a real lively bunch no matter how you try to spin-doctor that. Well, once we got the go ahead from the Boss that we could set up shop in Orgrimmar again, I can’t explain to you how happy I was with that idea. Whew! We were going back to a place that I knew and there were many of my old friends that stayed in the city even with all of the Orcs acting weird.
I know that we probably caused quite the hubbub when we left Silvermoon because I don’t think that the dust has settled yet. Didn’t take us long to make the move back to the old warehouse and get the shop up and running again. I was really kind of happy when we got that done and tried to settle in with my usual care. No, Zippie has been running around like someone built a fire under her butt and has the temper to match it these days – I do wish the Boss would come back for a surprise visit to see all of the stuff going on. I’m sure Zippie will settle down eventually, however, she is making everyone crazy right now.
I don’t think it was a bad idea for Tymer and I to take in the Faire, it’s not like we hadn’t done it before, I guess it just didn’t sit well with Miss “Thinksshesthebossofeverything” and she is just ranting about it to hear the sound of her own voice. It didn’t cost her any money and it didn’t cost the company any money, so, I don’t know what her problem is other than the fact that we didn’t invite her to come along with us.
Man, we had a blast, literally. I don’t know how many times I went on the canon ride, especially after we started doing shots after each attempt. The deal was that if you didn’t hit the bull’s-eye straight on, you had to take a shot and take another ride. Well, I think I hit the bull’s-eye a few times and still did the shot so that Tymer didn’t feel bad. We shouldn’t have done the canon ride before we did that flying through the rings thing. Oh, my head is still spinning from trying to make the rounds on that one – I’d see what I thought I was ring and fly through only to see that it wasn’t really there and I needed to fly through the one that was still there – yeah, I was seeing double a bit. Oh, then the racing – my butt still hurts from falling off my mount because I’d get distracted by things – well, those little zeps hurt when the shoot you in the bum. I’ll admit that Tymer did a lot better on the rides than I did and her wagering was pretty much spot on, I had to borrow some money from her so I could get something to eat and drink there at the last.
Naturally, we stayed way too late and rather than heading back to Orgrimmar, we spent the night in Thunder Bluff. I think that is where the problem was – we should have gone back to Orgrimmar with the money and goods from the contracts, however, we didn’t know there was a deadline on the stuff that was so close that it would matter. Tymer and I neither thought much about it because we were both too drunk to think that we needed to let Zippie know where we were either – it’s not like we’re rookies when we do our jobs and can work circles around these mooks.
We got on the Zep back to Orgrimmar this morning and made it back in plenty of time, we thought, until we saw Zippie pacing at the front of the warehouse. Instead of the “hiyah, good to see ya” that we were expecting, we got the message that we were being fined for being late with materials from the contract that we took. Well, I don’t think it was that big of a deal because it was just a few Kodo hides and we had collected the money that we were owed. Oh well, I’ll wait until she settles down and find what the real issue is.
I’m still happy that Tymer and I made it to the Faire, now, if only Zippie would shut up – my head is just pounding.
