New changes – cooking with pots and pans…


April 28th

Dear Journal,

Well, this farming thing isn’t too terribly bad and I am truly happy that Ty and I were able to buy the farm.   The house isn’t great, however, it’s better than living in a tent, sometimes.  Sure, we finally got the roof replaced and things aren’t quite so wet inside the house.

I actually have pots and pans now.  Ty came home with a big bag of stuff the other day and in there were pots and pans with other cooking utensils.  Now, that means I don’t have to make do with my armor anymore.   He told me that it was high time that I learned how to cook properly with the right tools to begin with. Poor man has no idea that my cooking is legendary – legendary as in real bad.

Now, we won’t have to wait while I make my helm cuisine – the carrots floating around inside my helm with added bits of potatoes and this and that.  It always tasted good, however, it did take days for me to get the smell out of my helm.   I am real hesitant on giving up on the  shield grill though – that thing really does make some of the best grilled food – fish, meat and yes, occasionally some grilled steaks.  Oh, the shield wasn’t mine, it belonged to an Alliance Paladin that doesn’t need it anymore.  However, the ornate work on the shield was always a bit hard to clean up after cooking on it though.  So, now I have pots and pans – we don’t eat that often but we do enjoy a good meal.

I think my dear brother has no clue about how to deal with our baby sister.  Here he has her living in her own little house in Silvermoon, has given her servants and all of the things that she needs to keep up the front, so to speak, and then, he still won’t give her access to the accounts that she wants in order to “live up to the standards” that she has come to expect.   She wrote me a rather lengthy and scathing letter concerning out brother.

I got a letter from Fnor telling me that he was making inquiries and arrangements to get Fae married off.  I think that is just asking for more trouble and fully intend on writing him back and telling him that.   He knows how she reacted the last time and if she hears of Dawnglory’s upcoming nuptials, I’m sure that she will go off the deep end for sure.  I’m glad that Ty and I are in Pandaria and removed from all of the family stuff.

Ty laughs at me constantly because I know that I do run about how the family is just going to Hell on the fast track with all of the trouble that they cause for each other.  What the hell!!  I’m a member of the family and I’m dead, I know better than to do some of the silly shit they are pulling.   Why would I want to get involved in that shit?

Well, at least Ty and I are doing what we want to do with the farm and just enjoying our time that we get to spend there, which isn’t  as much as I would like to do.   We still have to go down to the Jade Forest and break in the new recruits that seem to still be arriving – why they are being sent here is a mystery to me after all of the trash that has gone down with Garrosh – what a pinheaded fool he has turned out to be.

We were able to slip away and do some things that we wanted to do today.  We actually took some time to sit around the Jade Temple grounds and fish – did some laundry and watched FuzzButt chase some butterflies.  I swear that kitten has grown by leaps and bounds – must be almost completely grown and spoiled rotten.  I swear that if we were able to have children, Ty would still lavish most of his affections on that silly feline.

I know that my brother was being all nosy in his letter and was asking me what my intentions were with Ty – well, let’s just say that I won’t go into any details in that matter because what goes on between us is consensual.  Are we going to get married like the living do?  Probably not, we don’t need too, we aren’t going to have children and we sure as hell don’t need a piece of paper that says we’re together – we’re pretty damned obvious with that.

Who Are These People?


March 14th

Dear Journal,

I almost feel like what Dawnglory sounds like.  Where the hell are all of these untrained people coming from.  Has that shithead back in Orgrimmar completely lost his mind.  Things were cooling down here in Pandaria and I’ll be blessed if they haven’t sent more new recruits up there that couldn’t pour piss out of a boot with directions on the heel.

Ty and I both are just kind of keeping to ourselves because we’re in a bit of a shocked state of mind.  We see supposed Rangers that have no clue about anything.  Where are they coming from?  I know that there are certain requirements to be met to become a Ranger, however, there seems to be a real open door policy going on right now.   I watched a fellow try to kill a tiger and after missing the beast several times, just politely lead the beast back to where I was standing.  Oh, it was a simple kill for me, however, the fellow just smiled and took off again.  Where are they coming from? He didn’t even stop to skin it, so I did, and watched him scamper off into the forest as if he had an appointment with a lady or his hairdresser.

Oh, I know that a few new Death Knights have shown up and they seem to be surviving okay, however, there is something real strange about them.   They know they are free of the Lich, however, they aren’t real sure why they were sent here either.   The ones that came through Silvermoon and the Regent Lord are at least trained and have some idea as to why they are here in Pandaria, however, they are full of a lot of questions about just basic things.

There must be something going on that we aren’t aware of right now.  Why all the new raw recruits are being sent here is a mystery to me unless they are trying a new training program.  If you live through the training here, then, you move onto the next area?  I don’t know, there are always rumblings of things on the horizon with these politicos and it makes you wonder if they have started letting some Village Idiot lead the parade out of Orgrimmar and the Regent is trying to keep pace by releasing some real green kids to come up here to cover his interests.

Well, Ty and I almost have enough money to buy our farm now and I am looking forward to getting there and settling down.  I should say that I am looking forward to getting there and hide out until all of this passes and someone tells us what in the name of the Light is going on.  Did the Sunwell blow up and these are the people escaping from that?

I haven’t heard a word from my brother in the last few weeks and I am getting more than concerned.  Naturally, I am still getting letters from Faendra with all of her complaints about being in Silvermoon and how the living conditions are there.  Poor little lamb is having to work for her money and she isn’t too happy with that.  Naturally, everything is Fnor’s fault and she is going to let him know how she feels – she says he slapped her the last time he was in town.  Well, knowing my sister and knowing my big brother as well as I do, she did something to set the fireworks off.  She’s no innocent, that’s for certain.  I think I will drop a line to Fnor and put the bee in his bonnet about trying to marry her off so she will leave Dawnglory alone.

Oh, I saw the baby, Mirrin, in Halfhill and she certainly is growing and from what I gathered from Romy and Dawnglory, she’s quite the handful.  There is nothing sacred in their house that this little one isn’t either trying to explore or to shove into her mouth.  She’s adorable and Dawnglory certainly can’t deny being her Father with all of that golden hair.   I guess they are getting married, which came as a real shock to me, I never thought that in a million years that any woman would be able to tie that rascal down – he’s always been one to hit any skirt that sat still long enough.  Now, he’s a Father and soon to be a husband, who’d a thunk it?

I’m sitting here trying not to burst out laughing.   Ty is trying his best to teach Fuzzbutt to be an attack cat.  To see this grown man down on the floor and taunting this kitty to attack anything is just funny.  He even tried to get her to attack a moth that he had caught flying around the lamp.  Well, Fuzzbutt was intrigued at first and then ran over and jumped up on the bed and curled up.  Then, the laugh finally had to come out – Ty wanted to know how hunters get their pets to track and hunt like they do.  Well, hello, my almost brain-dead love, the beasts are much larger and the hunters know how to work with them.

Luckily, Ty and I are alone tonight and the neighbors don’t seem to be inclined to visit here in Halfhill quite as often as the barracks where you had no choice but to tolerate people being around constantly.  I think that Ty and I are just happy that we were able to rent this place for a while until we save up our money for the farm.  When Ty heard that Dawnglory was getting married, he looked at me afterwards as if he was going to say something and then clamped his jaws tight and had this kind questioning look on his face.  I asked him what was wrong and he said “Oh, nothing, I just swallowed a bug and I was wondering what kind it was?”  Oh, likely story that is.
