It might sound stupid, but I have always been really fond of 1st of April, with all of its jokes. When I was a child, practical jokes were my speciality. For my amusement, I have to say. For others, not so much! I had lots of imagination and liked to fool the employees in kindergarten, telling them all kinds of lies just to see if they bought it and how far I could go. Usually pretty far. One time I told them I was actually Russian, and started speaking “Russian” for them, making up words that sounded similar to what I had heard on tv. They had no knowledge of the language and when my mum came to pick me up they said they were very impressed with my bilingual skills. I also told them I was a vegetarian to see if I could get out of the horrible, horrible liver meal, recklessly chopped up and thrown on a plate. I did, and when my mum again came to pick me up, they asked her what food was ok to serve and not. Just to mention something.  And this was before the age of five.

Guess I made my parents embarrassed so there were several serious talks over dinner table about what was ok to joke about and what wasn’t, and the difference between lies and jokes. What I remember very well, was that they said it was ok to make jokes on 1st of April. I was amazed, a whole day where it was ok to lie and fool people?? Like christmas and birthday all in once. And what can I say? I still think it’s fun.

No 1st of April needed to accidentily push your brother into the pool

When I logged into WoW today, people were talking about pandas and crabs. Mmo announced that the next race in game would be pandas. And that next expansion might be called Panda Mania. Blizzard themselves wrote about Crabby, the new dungeon helper, a crab that came with you into dungeons as a guide. Just like the annoying pencil (or was it lightbulb?) who came up in earlier to help in earlier versions of Word documents. Not to mention their new dungeon, the Tomb of Immortal Darkness, which takes place in complete darkness. Sort of World of Warcraft meets Blair Witch Project. With no lights.

Bit confused about the new items from Blizzard store, wings that will work as a mount, and then you just fly up in the air. Seems it’s  a joke, but…I want them! Also, and this one might be real, there will be a dye vendor where you can buy dyes to change the colour of your armor. I like my armor in Burning Crusade, it was blue and gold and red all over and made me shine like a knight! Now I am all dull in nature colours, brown and grey doesn’t make a shammy girl sparkle! Bring on the dye, pleeease?

Were you fooled today? Or even better, did you fool anyone?

    So I’m taking a break from WoW, and avoiding all temptation, but I couldn’t help myself. I laughed for ten minutes straight!

    Haha I lol’d at that too. Really, a break? 🙂 Not always bad. You tired of game? Or just busy doing other stuff maybe?

      More that I was busy of doing other stuff, and then it just happened :/ School is taking quite a lot lately, and then friends and family took up the rest of my time. Oh well, I’ll be back!

    My family was visiting and i thought i’d get’em good… Since i live near the forest i thought i’d be able to fool them with this one and yes, it worked well: OH MY GOD WOULD YOU LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THAT MOOSE ON YOUR CAR!!!?? And my father practically dove through the livingroom window with the rest of the family on his heals.
