Never A Dull Moment…


June 13th

Dear Journal,

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.

 

Dooddah

Dooddah Goes To The Faire…


March 4th

Dear Journal,

I know it wasn’t very nice of me to fool my sister, Zippie, however, when she kept asking for someone to go to Orgrimmar to pick up some contracts and check on our old warehouse there, I was all but jumping for joy.  Of course, Uncle Zednick could have done the tasks because he’s already over there, however, Zippie said that she wanted someone that she could trust to get the job done – which kind of left me.

So, off I went to Orgrimmar, filled with excitement about visiting the city and not being supervised by Uncle Zednick.  I could feel free to wander around and visit with some of my old friends while I was there as well as seeing how things have changed since Garrosh left.

One of the things that stayed in the back of my mind was the fact that the Faire was in town and I could spend some time there just having fun after I got my work done.  I could ride the rides, play the games as many times as I wanted too as well as eating all of the food that I wanted to eat the last time and didn’t get the change.

Oh, what a great time I had although I will have to admit that I got kind of sick after drinking so many fizzy drinks that I felt like I was going to explode, hope I didn’t mess up the people too much when I ended up throwing up on the people below when I was flying around with those silly wings and going through the rings.  Maybe they were just Alliance people, if that was the case, I’m sorry but not nearly as sorry as I would have been if they had been Horde.  I had so much and didn’t really notice the time as closely as I should have, I suppose.

There were just so many things to see that I hadn’t had the chance to see before because the others were too busy wanting to go to other places.   I even got my fortune read although I don’t know what she meant about success with my ventures – I’m not venturing anything, I’m just doing my job.

Whoa, I don’t know what they gave that turtle at the ring toss this time because he was sure zipping around like he had rockets under his shell.  It was pretty hard to hit that post on this back.  I tried asking what they gave the turtle to speed him up and the girl there wouldn’t tell me.  I wouldn’t mind giving my crab, Salad, some stuff to speed him up sometimes. I would even share some of the stuff with Panmoshu, my Panderan friend,  to give to her turtle, Soup, to see if he wouldn’t pick up the pace a little bit.  Oh well, may I’ll find out one of these days.

Oh, they added a new race on the beach.  I don’t think I did very well with it because I got lost a couple of days and hit a few things that I shouldn’t and got shot off into the water.  I’m sure that my race time was dead last, however, that’s okay, I still had fun.  I know that I wish they had cleared out some of those big wolves that seemed to wander through the race track area sometimes and scared me half to death – at least my mount kept running and I didn’t get eaten.

It was fun and I don’t regret slipping off to go over there with a few of my buddies from Orgrimmar, however, I know that Zippie will be kind of upset that I took the extra time to have some fun instead of racing back to Silvermoon with the contracts I picked up.  Oh yeah, the warehouse looks great and it looks like the Boss made his decision already because there were some Orcs putting up a new sign over the doors that said “Morningstar Enterprises” on it.  I wonder if we will be moving back here to live, it might be a nice change for us because I will have to admit that it makes me nervous being around all of those elves all of the time.  I hope we can get our little house back or at least have a nice size area upstairs to live again since the Princess has moved on with her life – we hope she has, at least.

Well, time for me to get some sleep and start back to Silvermoon tomorrow so I can turn in this stuff and let Zippie know about the warehouse.   It was sure fun getting away on my own for a while – it’s like Zednick and Zippie don’t trust me to be able to handle things on my own because I’m the youngest – well, I can take care of myself fairly well.

Dooddah Prattfall

Family – What Does that Really Mean?


January 6th

Dear Journal,

You know it ain’t easy being a distant cousin to the Prattfalls and sometimes I think they want to keep it as distant as possible, you know.  I think it’s kind of hurtful that they all moved to that Silvermoon place and left me in the slums here in Orgrimmar.  I ain’t got nothing wrong with me that I know of other than being the youngest in the family and I’m not quite up to par with them socially, I guess.

I do get to see Dooddah and Zednick now and then because they seem to come to Orgrimmar with more frequency than I think that Zippie does.  Well, can’t expect her being the one to come to Org that much either considering she’s gotten kind of snooty with her job and stuff.    I was going to mention it to Dooddah the last time she was here but I thought better of it, no sense in losing a friend because she might think I was dissing her sister.  I just wish that I didn’t feel so far away from the family.  Oh yeah, sure, I have my own group of friends here in the Slums, it ain’t exactly the same as family.  I always thought that we were supposed to stick up for one another, you know, family-like.

I don’t think that I’d be in such a foul mood about it except that I didn’t really get anything from Winter’s Veil from them, no card, no invitation to come to dinner, nothing, it was like I wasn’t even here or something.  At least I got some stuff from under the tree and the socks keep my feet warm in these worn out boots that I have, even if they do get wet now and then with the holes in them.  I think it would have been nice if they had acknowledged that I even existed.

Look, I know the family wasn’t all that close back in Kezan, however, my Dad was best friends with Zednick and I would have thought that he might have at least remembered me from that.

I even put an application in for their stupid company to get a job and I still haven’t heard anything back from Zippie.  Guess they don’t need another hunter and I guess they don’t want everyone to know that they have poor relations living in Orgrimmar – it might keep them from making more money.

I know that I promised myself that I wouldn’t get in this funk about not being accepted and all that, however, it’s just not fair.  Even Dooddah took me out hunting with her and she said that I did real good.  I was going to ask her about my application and I didn’t because she may not know what her older sister is doing anymore than I would.   I get the feeling that Dooddah kind of does her own thing and the only reason that she went to Silvermoon was to be with her family.

Well, crap, some mooks are trying to start trouble here in Cross Roads, guess I better get my butt out of here before they start thinking that I look like an easy target or something.  The guards seem to be keeping most of them out of here, however, you’d think that the Alliance would try to find another place to pick on sometime.

Well Worth The Time…


October 29th

Dear Journal,

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.

What…Does this mean


July 4th

Dear Journal,

Well, if this isn’t just a fine bag of fertilizer!  It almost made the fertilizer hit the wind machine in my mind, however, it’s not something that can be helped I suppose.  Seems the Boss is expecting to get called up for “duty ” in the near future and expects me to take on the responsibility of running the company while he is off doing his thing for the Regent.   Just like he did when he took off for Pandaria and just like he did before that, I guess.  I was having such a great day until he walked in and gave me that bit of news and I will admit that it put a major damper on my day.   He did tell me that I should go ahead and hire an assistant to help me with things too because the thinks that I am getting overworked.

Overworked?  That’s an understatement when I had to go to Shattrath and deal with that long-tailed arrogant Draenei that works for the Boss’s wife.  I’ve got a feeling that she likes me almost as much as I like her too.  Maybe she’s not so arrogant, she has to look down her nose at me anyway because I’m short, however, I don’t like the way she keeps shifting those hooves around when we’re standing near one another.

Well, it will mean more money and it will mean more time working my fingers to the bone to where I almost look like a Forsaken.  It will also mean that I will get less time to spend with the family or even getting out in public to socialize a bit. Now, I know that the money is a good thing, however, I kind of enjoyed being able to get out and talk to people when I took that time off.   I’ll do what I need to do to make the Boss happy, however, I think that we need to get more people – you know, managers for each of the warehouses, not just me doing all of it, it’s kind of getting to be more stressful even though we are showing a profit, I can’t do it all.

Uncle Zednick is starting to complain about the fact that he never gets to see me these days and he would like for us to start spending some more time together and Dooddah, well, she just looks at me and gets this sad look on her face.  I think that she gets lonely and I know she misses the fun times that we used to have too.

I think I’ll talk to the Boss about my idea of getting more warehouse managers and I can hire someone to help with the books.  Maybe that Adamia kid or someone else – she’s too flighty to be able to sit down at the desk and go through paperwork.   I’ll start looking around to see what I can do and whom might be interested in working in the office at a flat rate rather than being out in the field working as a contract person – maybe I can find someone that I might be able to get along with.  I wonder what happened to our cousin, the kind of weird mage person – I don’t really think she’s a mage either.  I know that she made it off Kezan and got to Orgrimmar because I saw her, then, she just disappeared.

Anyway, I guess I’ll get over my surprise and disappointment with the way that things look like they are going because it hasn’t happened yet.  I’ll just wait and see what goes on with this stuff.  The Boss said he “might”  get called up again, not that he had gotten called up.

Zippie

Meanwhile…Back In Stormwind


June 9th

Dear Journal,

While it can be said that I enjoy working for Shadowmoon Enterprises, I’m not so sure that I enjoy having to deal with this little frog person from Morningstar Enterprises when I am in Shattrath.  Her voice, oh by the Light, her voice makes my teeth hurt and the language – it’s so crude sounding when she speaks Common, which she has a limited vocabulary at best.  At least we’re not together all of the time, we just happen to run into one another in Shattrath from time to time. Zippie, what a ridiculous name that is and the surname isn’t too far from wrong with it being Prattfall – she does seem to do that frequently, in my opinion.

I suppose if I could be considered a traitor in some circles by working for an employer that is married to a Sindorei and they are running businesses and selling goods to both factions.  Amyn tells me that is making money for both sides and that I should realize that she would never do anything that would be harmful for the Alliance.  I do know that we don’t send out weapons to the Horde, however, we send out all manner of goods to them.  Of course, now that this Zippie person has access to our warehouse goods in Shattrath, it will mean that I will have to inventory a lot more when I am down there to make sure that we have what  we need to service our customers and that we are being compensated correctly when she takes goods.  I don’t think that combining the two companies outwardly like it has been done is a wise decision either – what if some person happens to talk to the right people in Stormwind, we could all end up in jail.  At least I only have to endure the place once a month down there and collect what monies are owed on contracts if Amyn hasn’t already done so.  She works hard for a boss and I will have to tip my hat to her for that because she seems to balance her marriage, her family and the political situation quite well.   I have seen her husband in Shattrath and I will have to admit that he is quite handsome for a Blood Elf.  I can actually see some resemblance in the boys now that I have laid eyes on their Sire.  Most assuredly, the boys look more decidedly Kaldorei, however, the way they both smile  and that self-assuredness that seems to be a trait of the Sindorei is definitely in evidence.

I will have to admit that I enjoyed the short trip that I made to Pandaria, however, I’m not sure that I like all of the bears there.  Oh, they are friendly and likeable enough, however, I don’t think that I have ever been overly fond of furries.  The countryside is beautiful and dangerous in some areas or so I’m told.  I know that I was up there primarily to give my opinion on opening another warehouse up there and I don’t think that it is such a good idea because who knows which way the Horde will go from one day to the next  – the other company’s people might decide to revolt and take everything over and then, where would our employees be?  Not a good plan in my considered opinion.

I had Vashlan keep an eye on things while I was away and his Mother was visiting with his Father.  Not real sure that was such a good idea.  He hired some people while I was away and I can’t help but feel that he wasn’t using his brain when he hired them – they were all women.   At least I know what drives the young man and I think that I will ask someone else the next time I have to be absent and Amyn isn’t going to be in town.   We’ll have to see how all of this works out, won’t we?

I guess that Kaldor is making arrangements to have all of his stock for his contracts shipped into Stormwind instead of making the trip down like he was.  I wonder what is up with that, I really like that young fellow.  I suppose his late night carousing here in Stormwind with his friends has caused him some complications with his woman, she’s a Sentinel or was a Sentinel and those women don’t put up with much nonsense from their men, which is as it should be.

Oh, I did have a nice surprise when I got back to town.  I had a letter from Lagn and he is staying in Darnassus for the time being.  He also had some flowers delivered that were quite lovely.  The letter was friendly enough and was mostly about his time with the Kaldorei and then he asked me out to dinner.  I suppose it wouldn’t hurt anything if I did go out to dinner with him even if he is an employee.  I’ll have to give that some thought though, might not  be the proper thing to do.

Oh well, I suppose I ought to stop writing and get back to work.  I just dread trying to balance the books for our share in Shattrath and then have to turn around and balance the books for here in Stormwind.  There are times that I feel almost trapped at my desk and the weather has turned quite lovely and I would like to be outside enjoying it – this past winter of being stuck here most of the time has made me almost loathe it.

Walking Headache


March 28th

Dear Journal,

I sure hope the Boss knows what in the heck he is doing with his sister!! Well, I’ll admit that the house is a lot more peaceful since she has been “removed from the premises” as he puts it, however, it sure has made my life interesting at the office.  Of course, she can’t just waltz in there and demand all kinds of things like she once was, however, we’re all sick of hearing about what a dump her brother moved her into.

Man, we’d like something like that – you know, Zednick and Dooddah – they would be able to have a place to call their own and a house in Silvermoon is quite a feather in the cap as far as I am concerned.  She was raging about not having running water all over the place and a steady supply of hot water – well, she should try living in the slums in Orgrimmar.  We got hot water a lot there, even if it wasn’t all that great considering where it came from.  She even got servants thrown in too, that was something that surprised me a bit, although, I can see that they were put there to keep an eye on her Highness too.

At least we can walk around the house now and not have to worry about stepping on her toes for something that we might have done or not done.  Life is kind of pleasant and the Boss seems more like himself because he doesn’t have to worry about her raging at him all of the time.

She may camp out here at the warehouse to try to catch him and I wish her luck there because he doesn’t come down here that often to start with.  Oh yeah, I can see that she would think that he is avoiding her, wish she’d get the idea that there are a lot of other people avoiding her, not just her brother.

I know that I was about to go downstairs and tell her to calm down some because she was ranting at no one that cared when one of the new guys just told her to shut up.  Oh, you would have thought that he had committed some kind of sin by telling her that.  She went off like a rocket and started screaming at the guy – well, that would have been okay, however, the fellow didn’t know who she was and proceeded to punch her in the mouth.  I think that shocked her and she told the fellow, after she picked her butt up off the ground that she’d make sure he got fired and he told her that he didn’t care, he was a contract worker just like she was.  He gets paid by the contract, just like she does, however, he could freelance if there weren’t any contracts for him.

I did finally go down to explain to the guy after she stormed out of the warehouse and explained who she was and that he didn’t have a thing to worry about in so far as working for Morningstar Enterprises as long as he kept his end of the bargain by filling the contracts that he had been given.  Which, I have to remind Faendra that she has some outstanding and over-due contracts that her brother is not going to pay a penalty on just because she was too busy whining about her living conditions to fill them.  I mean, they aren’t even that hard to fill – just leave Silvermoon and shoot a few animals and skin them.

There are times that I wish that the Boss had never found her at the Faire and brought her back home.  I know that he was hoping that she had changed and is really upset that she has only gotten worse.  One would have thought that she might have learned a few things while she was traipsing around Kalimdor with Light only knows what kind of people.   I’m surprised that someone out there didn’t just kill her off or something.  I do know that nobody cared who she was or who her family was out there and it would have been just another girl gone missing.

I was laughing at Uncle Zednick the other night because he is still wishing that he had done more than sheep her when she made him mad.  The man will never change and I know that he means well with some of the thing that he does, however, I think that he needs to get busy with his engineering friends and come up with some gimmicks for us to sell for our “family fund” because I know that I don’t plan on working my whole life away.

I hope the Princess decides to go camp at the house to try to catch her brother tomorrow because she gave me a headache today that all of the herbs in the city won’t touch.

Zippie

Hunter IN Charge…errr…umm…NO


March 4th

Dear Journal,

I don’t usually get a chance to say much in my journal these days, however, I think I will just plunk my butt down here and relax for a while.  Zippie and Zednick decided to take a quick trip to Shattrath City to check out the new warehouse and living facilities and they left me in charge of things here in Silvermoon.  I sure hope they don’t stay away too long, I don’t like this authority thing at all, I would much rather be just accountable for myself and Kitteh.

Oh hello there, I’m a hunter, I don’t have a head for figures and I sure don’t know all of the employees that come through the doors of the warehouse – I’m usually out in the field doing my job and I usually travel alone.  I’m not sure what they were thinking when they told me to take care of things here in town.

Sure, I haven’t really minded the offices being in Silvermoon all that much with the exception that I don’t get to see my friends in Orgrimmar very often anymore.  There’s nothing like sitting there in a sunchair, sipping a nice cold one, chatting with your friends and fishing. The fish aren’t bad if you clean them real good and cook them until they are crispy. Sure the gossip is always good and sometimes someone has something to say about the absence of Gallywix trying to lord it over all of us.  We all kind of wonder what has happened to him lately – I’m thinking he’s off plotting about how he can grab more money from the goblins and these stupid mooks.

I sure wish that they had taken the Boss’s dingbat sister with them though.  She’s mean to me when there aren’t other people around.  Oh yeah, now I have to call her Miss Faendra.  There are a few other things I’d like to call her, however, I’m not real good at writing swear words – I can say them much better.

I don’t think that Zed and Zippie had been gone more than an hour when Miss Faendra flounced herself into the office and demanded that I hand over the cash box and open the safe for her.  Well, she got all upset when I told her the cash box was in the safe and the safe was locked.  She yelled at me and told me to open the safe – I can’t open the safe, Zippie never gave me the combination.

Well, she proceeded to call me all manner of names, insulting my parentage, telling me that I was just a green mental midget.  That one did make me laugh because it’s true – I am green, I am short and because I’m small, my brain has gotta match, right?  I bet I have more great ideas about stuff than she ever has, she’s just a skinny Blood Elf and a lousy hunter. I didn’t tell her about her being a lousy hunter though – which is true, I’ve been out in the field with her once or twice and she’s always worried about breaking a nail or something.  I work with my own rules out there – you kill, you clean it and you skin it – nope, I refused to do her job for her, plain and simple.  Oh, did I mention that she is a skinny Blood Elf that is lazy too?

She stormed out of the office and headed down into the warehouse to raise trouble with the hired help down there.  Apparently, that didn’t work out that well for her when she tried telling one of the Tauren what to do because the fellow started acting as dumb as an Orc peon, so, she got up closer to him to yell some more and he promptly sat on her.  I heard the muffle screams and the laughter up here in the office and had to go down and put a stop to it before the fellow killed the Boss’s sister.  I couldn’t help it, I was laughing so hard that I had tears streaming down my face.  Let’s just say that she blew outta the warehouse like someone had thrown a bomb at her – now, there’s a thought.

I know it wasn’t nice, however, she’s not nice at all, we all kind of stood there and laughed because the look on her face was classic.  Let’s just say that that fancy hairdo of hers was tangled up  – I did tell the Tauren that he didn’t need to add insult to injury by farting on her while he was sitting on her – we all laughed some more about that.

Hey, we don’t have to treat her any differently than we do each other.  She’s just one of “us” now and nothing special.  If she is going to try to terrorize the help, we can terrorize right back.  I just hope that her brother doesn’t put her “in charge” of anything or we’re all gonna be in some serious trouble.

I know that she is going to be in for one heck of a surprise when she takes her armor out of her locker and takes off to hunt.  Most of us wear our armor all of the time and we take care of cleaning it ourselves.  No, she wasn’t going to clean her armor, one of us was supposed to do it.  Okay, that’s all well and good, however, it kind of fell to the bottom of the list of things to do.

I know that I was a little surprised when one of little Pandaren took the gear out of the locker and started cleaning it – it sure was shiny and you’d could see yourself in it, it was that shiny.  I could never get my armor to look like that and asked him what he did – you know some kind special Pandaren magic trick?  I almost fell off my feet when he told me what he had used to give that armor that shine – boar fat – he rubbed boar fat all over the armor and wiped it off so it didn’t feel greasy.   Oh boy, she is going to attract anything on four feet that is looking for an easy meal.  I know I was cracking up with that idea and just decided that it would be one of those pranks that I would keep to myself.  Well, if she gets eaten by a bear, it’s not my fault.

I wonder if Miss Faendra gets the idea that the rest of us don’t really like her all that much?

Well, Zippie and Zednick got back home and I’m happy that I don’t have to walk around acting like the boss anymore.  That was hard work and I would much rather have been out hunting.  Yep, I was the “Hunter In Charge” and can’t say that I liked it much.  I hope they don’t make a habit of that too often because I’ll be forced to stay busy elsewhere if they do.   Make one of the Tauren or even a Forsaken with a head for figures do it – yeah, that’s the ticket, a Forsaken that has all of their fingers and toes so they can count.

I Will Change Everything Back to What I Want…


January 29th

Dear Journal,

I woke up this morning to the sounds of children playing and the pitter patter of little feet going down the hall outside my room.  Now, I’m not sure if I’ve made the right decision or not because the little feet inside the house were little goblin feet, I guess my brother decided that they could stay here at the house in Silvermoon – he should have put them in the apartment above the stables unless he has someone else stashed away up there. Knowing my brother, he probably has an entire family of Tauren staying up there or even some Trolls that had a pitiful story to tell him.

My room was pretty much the way that I left it with the exception of the bridal gown that I threw in the fireplace last night and burned.  I am going to have to go to the dressmakers and get some more current gowns since the ones I left here no longer fit me correctly since my body has changed so much with the physical activity that I did while I was gone. I wonder if my stingy brother will loan me some money against my earnings or something so that I dress befitting a woman of some rank in Silvermoon should dress?  I don’t have that much money of my own right now and if I were staying at an Inn, I’d be on the street in a few days.

I know I was shocked when I ran into my brother at the Faire, even more astonished when I saw Dawnglory there with a very pregnant woman.  Oh yeah, my feelings for him haven’t changed that much and I just felt like this woman was just some whore that he knocked up and felt like he needed to make sure that the baby was his. They aren’t married and they, apparently, aren’t planning on making their relationship legal which means that their baby, if it is his, will be a bastard.  She must have been very pretty at some point though to keep my man interested and now, with that big belly sticking out there, she’s lost her looks for a while.  Of course, we were introduced and she gave me such a look that I almost laughed out loud.  I guess that might be some kind of threat to her or something, however, time will tell.  I know Dawnglory well enough to know that he’s going to lose interest and will be off womanizing again.

My brother told me that Dawnglory was very much in love with this woman and that I had better get any ideas that I had in my mind about him forgotten because this woman could kill me very easily.  Oh, I don’t think so, big brother, I’ve learned a lot in these last few months and I think I can handle anything that she might try to do. I guess she was a Ranger under my brother’s command and worked alongside Dawnglory – well, more than alongside but more underneath.  Oh well, guess she got pregnant and Dawnglory left the Rangers, as did she.  I hope he didn’t get kicked out for dallying with the subordinates because it will be hard for him to go back, if that was the case.

Felessa got married while I was gone and she’s pregnant too.  I have my doubts about whether her baby was her husband’s or not because he’s kind of old.  She was really smitten with this young Ranger that is still in Silvermoon and I have a feeling that it’s his.  I know that her marriage contract is set up that she has to produce an heir to the family and she’s doing that, I don’t think it said that it had to be a legitimate heir.  Oh, she’s so busy making baby clothes and getting as big as house that I don’t think that she and I are going to be socializing with one another that much.  She did promise to throw a party in the near future to welcome me back and to reintroduce me to some of the people that I haven’t seen for awhile.  She’s probably going to try to find someone for me so that I can get fat and pregnant just like her.  I like the idea of a party, however, finding a man to sleep with isn’t on the top of my list unless it’s one particular man.

I did meet quite a few men in my travels and I’ll admit that one young Blood Elf caught my eye and I often think about him and how it might have been to go to bed with him. He was the polar opposite of Dawnglory, he was dark haired and a monk.  He basically threw all of the things that he had learned in Silvermoon away and started a new life for himself.  He apparently is from a very good family here in Silvermoon, however, he abandoned them along with all of the other things in Silvermoon.  He was kind, considerate and very well educated – one would think that he still had some of his Silvermoon connections because he didn’t seem to want for much.  In fact, he helped me out a few times with gear and weapons when I didn’t have any money.  I know that we spent a lot of time together and I am sure that he is wondering where I am right now.  I’ll have to write him and let him know where I am and that I am still planning on coming back to Kalimdor in the very near future if things don’t work out the way that I want them too here.

Well, I guess that I should see if my brother will let me go with him to the farm in Pandaria so that I can try to befriend Dawnglory’s woman after she has her brat.  I’ll also try to figure out if there are any chinks in the relationship that she has with my man so that I can get him back where he belongs.  No, she isn’t going to keep that golden haired man out of my bed if I have anything to say about it – he was mine long before he ever met her.

I really need to get a bath and go get my nails done, they are absolutely horrid and I suppose I need to go talk to Zippie and find out what kind of contracts she has for me. I hope she doesn’t think that I am going to be doing all of her grunt work for her either, not without some recognition and money from my brother.  Besides, if she goes to Shattrath to run things down there, I can run things here in Silvermoon without any trouble at all and without her nosy interference.

I hope my brother left word with the stableman that my mount needed to be properly groomed and outfitted with new tack.  I would hate for anyone to see me riding my hawkstrider the way that she looks right now.  Oh, maybe I can take Fnor’s black hawkstrider out, he’s a much better looking animal and the gear that he wears is very rich looking.  Yes, that’s what I’ll do, I’ll take one of my brother’s mounts.

Destruction Of The Land…


September 16th

Dear Journal,

On our last trip into the Vale just a few days ago, you couldn’t help but notice the destruction of the Vale by the Horde. Hellscream’s little goblins have torn a great hole in the ground and appear to be mining for something – this couldn’t bode well for the rest of us, I’m sure.

I was in hopes that even Hellscream would have some respect for Pandaria and the Pandaren.  I’m almost shocked that they haven’t put a stop to the digging and the destruction of this most sacred of places in Pandaria.  It makes my heart sad to think that even here in Pandaria, the Horde feel the need to destroy everything they touch.  It wasn’t enough that they have destroyed much of the forest lands in Kalimdor, now, they are starting the destruction here in the heart of this beautiful land. Kae and I both were appalled and probably will not be venturing into the Vale very often henceforth. It truly does make my heart weary to see the beauty of the land destroyed here in the same fashion-the deforestation of Kalimdor reeked of greed more than a need for survival.

One would have thought that Hellscream and his Orcs would have had their hands full with the business going on in Kalimdor and would have left this land alone.  I suppose that this destruction will only end when someone or some group is fortunate enough to bring about his demise, I pray to Elune that this ends soon.

Kae still can’t seem to make up her mind if she wants to take a leave from the Sentinels or not.  I guess that she is wanting some kind of permanent commitment from me to give her assurance that I won’t leave her and she will have nothing left.  It bothers me that she would even doubt my sincerity when I tell her that I care for her very deeply, not only as my dearest friend, but, also as my lover.

My parents were very young when they took their vows at the Moonwell and even though those vows were broken and mended a few times, they seem to have weathered the storms of life rather well.  They had more of a noticeable racial thing fighting against them the whole way than what I do – they were definitely of different races and cultures and you could see that at first glance, however, in my case, I look more Kaldorei than I do Sindorei until you get close enough to gaze deep into my eyes.  There the glint of green can be very prominent depending upon the lighting and my mood. Ah well, I don’t know that I am ready to make that lifelong commitment yet, I’m still a young man, I care for Kae and I may even love her but until I feel that I am ready, I am not going to make that final step.

Women!! They are so alluring and so confusing at the same time, it makes a fellow wonder what he is supposed to think.  I have spent many hours contemplating the questions that I have in my mind about my situation and I have even prayed to Elune to give me some guidance.  Since I am not sure which entity is really guarding my family  – I even prayed to the Light.   I still have those doubts and questions in my mind.  I suppose I need to talk to a more experienced fellow about these sort of things – my Father is still in Silvermoon, so that leaves him out, I suppose I could talk with Civardi or even one of the other Fools – of the male persuasion, to see how they have handled this sort of thing in the past.  I know that Josie’s best buddy would give me some answers since he seems to be running a harem with the women he works with, even if they are both worgen. Strange situation there that makes mine look as calm as a lake in the moonlight.

Naturally, I can’t talk to Kae about my feelings because she might misunderstand and might just pack up her stuff and move back to the camp – which would make me feel devastated completely. It’s a tricky thing, maybe I should talk to one of the Pandaren monks that I see around here in Halfhill from time to time, I bet they could help me out, if they are into that sort of thing – I am sure they must be because there are a lot of little Pandaren running about.

Oh, I have spent enough time writing about my personal feelings for the time being.  I am really concerned about the things going on in the Vale.  If the Horde unleashes something that they can’t control, it might cause more trouble for all of Pandaria. I know that the others have noticed the strange goings on and they have to have made some kind of investigation or inquiries into the matter, however, Kae and I are too far down the line of Scouts and Sentinels for us to be made privy to the information, I suppose.

I wish my Father were still here in Pandaria because I know that he could make some inquiries to his people and find out what is going on, maybe.  I hear that Hellscream has driven most of his supporters away with his talk of  a “pure” Horde which definitely wouldn’t include anyone except for the Orcs.  Stupid fool is defeating himself and has no clue.
