2009 didn’t bring me motivation
Posted on January 6th, 2009 @ 1:04 pm

I’ve been feeling pretty lazy about pretty much everything.  I said in my first post of the year that I wanted to get back into working with my polymer clay and jewelry and stuff, but I just haven’t been bitten by that bug yet.  Instead, I’ve been spending my off time playing World of Warcraft with my new Death Knight (I’m now level 61, they start out at level 55), and having seasons of “Supernatural” running on my Mac while I play WoW on my PC.

Bring it on, 2009

Another year, come and gone.  They seem to be zipping by so fast now.

It’s it funny how when you’re young, the year just seems to draaaaaag by, but the older you get, the faster it seems to pass?

I really need to get my hiney in gear this year with a lot of stuff.  Getting back on our Medifast diet (shakes are ordered and will get here next week).  Try to post more often here and on my other blog.  Get moving on my polymer clay play and start making beads to hopefully sell.  Maybe get back into making jewelry.

For the moment though, now that the Kiddo is napping, I need to dash off to the store and get her some more clothes, and pick up a few more card making things so I can finish making her b-day invites, while her dad hangs out playing games while she sleeps.

When I get back I’ll probably start my new Death Knight on World of Warcraft – he got my other character to level 55 last night so I can now create a DK!  Yay!! :mrgreen:

We’re an Apple family
Posted on September 10th, 2008 @ 8:21 am

As I posted last night, my husband practically begged and pleaded and offered to do chores in attempts to get me to ok buying one of Apple’s new Nanos that they just announced yesterday.

We’ve had Apple iPods for pretty much as long as they’ve been in existence.  We’ve had almost one of every version since the very first one.  We’ve had iPods, we’ve had (and have) the Shuffles, and we have Nanos.  My Nano is one he purchased for our anniversary gift to me this year, and had it engraved.  I :heart: it.

We ALSO have the iPhones.  Yes, plural.  One for him, and one for me.  The first version, he bought a week after they came out.  For the 3G version, we took the day off of work, dropped the Kiddo off at daycare as per usual, and stood in line the day it was released.  For three and a half hours.  (which, I have to say is MUCH better than when we stood in line for the Xbox 360, but that is another story)

And we both have iMacs.  He has a 30″ iMac, I have a 24″ iMac.  I really really :heart: my iMac.  And we both have MacBook Pros.  We also have a G5 Mac tower (I think it is a powermac?) which is home to OS X Server.  Oh, and I almost forgot.  He also has a 15″ Macbook in black.

(and I wonder why our credit cards have gotten out of hand?? Wait, no I don’t.)

So yeah, Macs rule in this house.  We have TWO lone Windows machines, both Dells.  Those are so we can remote into our home network while we’re at work, and for various games that are not on the Mac yet.  Although that is starting to become less and less of a problem anymore.  Technically I could run World of Warcraft on my iMac, and I can also run Spore on my iMac.  But I have those installed on my PC, simply because I prefer to use my iMac for surfing the ‘net, checkin’ my e-mail, and doing graphics doodling and tinkering with HTML.  Sometimes even while playing WoW or Spore on my PC.  My husband uses his iMac to watch various movies or TV shows (Star Trek DS9, currently) while he plays WoW or Spore, or other games.

Anyway.  I can’t recommend Apple’s products highly enough.  Especially their computers.  Extremely stable, last longer than any PC we’ve ever owned (I still have a 15″ G4 Powerbook that runs perfectly that is waiting for its prospective new owner to get paid so she can buy it – and we bought THAT in 2004!), GREAT for graphics work.  And did I mention stable?  I can maybe count on one hand the times I’ve had to forcefully reboot my iMac.  Or any of my Mac computers, for that matter.

Yes, they’re a little pricey sometimes (our poor credit cards can attest to that), but they are WELL worth it. And the iPods aren’t half bad either. :laugh:

World of Warcraft funny
Posted on September 8th, 2008 @ 10:41 am

Sometimes the titles to the quests in the game make me giggle.  They like to use puns a lot, parodies on stuff, things like that.

Yesterday, we got a quest out in Draenei land that really caught my eye.  The name of it looked REAALLY familiar.

“Precious and Fragile Things, Need Special Handling”

It was a quest to gather some ancient relics.

Can anyone guess where the name of it came from?

World of Warcraft
Posted on September 6th, 2008 @ 6:04 pm

I started a new character tonight – a Draenei Shaman.  My husband chose a Draenei Mage.  When we play with the intent of grouping, we tend to pick characters in the same region, especially with the “refer a friend” bonus that we’re making use of right now.  He “referred” me and I created a new account, and now when we group we make 3x the experience, so we’re levelling up pretty quickly.  I’m already level 9, and we started playing maybe an hour ago?  I have about 600 more experience points to obtain and I’ll be level 10. :hay:
