Me 🙂

I’m really not good at keeping my blog updated. My friend Tom keeps telling me I should do like him, make a personal blog instead, or in addition. But I don’t see what I would write on there, the things I could write about are too boring and the things I would want to write about, well I am scared they would be a bit too personal. Not that it really matters, not like half the world is reading this anyway 😉 But I DO like to write on this blog, and not always about epics or monsters.

I enjoy wow at the moment, I deleted my 40-ish druid just to start over again, and I really like being a cat. It’s still the melee thing that is complicated, I’m struggling with facing the right way while using my abilities. Would like some kind of “stick” ability so I just followed it automatically and could focus on rotation instead. Yes, I know that sounds like maximum laziness, but I am telling you; I NEED it!

Our raids…hmm, not so much to say about it, or I simply don’t feel like it. We have 4/7 heroic Firelands now and I enjoy raiding. I have gone from clicking ALL my spells to keybind about half. It’s good progress for me I think. And there are still so many great people who make the game fun and interesting. Some of them just makes me smile all the time.  My real life seems to look more and more like a routine, with studies in the mornings and either wow, gym or work in evening. While trying to see be social once or twice a week by going out for dinner, movie or coffee with friends or family. It’s not very exciting. But could be a lot worse.

I saw a thing at Revive & Rejuvenate, called IntPiPMo, where you are supposed to post 50 screenshots over 30 days (in November). I think I have 3000 screenshots, so I wish I had seen it earlier. I am bit lost for words nowadays it seems, so would have been nice.

Apart from that, it’s already end of November, and  I wonder what happened to September and October. Yesterday someone at work told me I looked like what we call a Lykketroll (Happy Troll?) in Norwegian, which made me realise it is really time for a haircut. Usually I keep my hair cut in different lengths and use hair straightener with several products to keep it out of trouble, but lately it has become very happy, long and fluffy and I think I look like Tom Hanks in Cast Away! But at least I have been doing my own version of Movember 🙂

Sometimes I am a Sad Panda

I love my family, but…sometimes they drive me crazy! While Tribeca never got the Headless Horseman mount (sob!), I have bought myself my own mount, a new car. Today I have been driving my dad here and there most of the day, picking him up after an operation and helping him do groceries since obviously the medications made him struggle  to see the difference between tomato and lime. To avoid potential disasters in kitchen I came to rescue. Any average nice person with a driving licence would be happy to do the same.

Mine. Just mine. NOT a taxi!

So when I got home after dark, all I really wanted to do was to deal with the invasion going on in my kitchen. You see, I have, oh the horror, banana flies! I left a banana in my gym bag and kinda forgot about it. And when I opened it a cloud of horrible little creatures flew up and stormed perfectly synchronised into the kitchen, starting nomnoming on everything! Disgusting. Google tells me all I need to do is put out some wine and they will drown in it. Hello? First they eat my banana, then occupy my kitchen and on top of that I’m supposed to serve them wine? Forget it! A similar-to-Martha Stuart lady on a random website tells me vinegar will do the same. So I have now placed little cups of  that smelly stuff all over kitchen, waiting for them to suffer and die, die die! So far…. 2 dead. 89679 to go!

I was just about to put on an overall combined with bee keeper mask and go get the fire extinguisher, to see how banana monsters enjoyed large amounts of CO2 sprayed onto their tiny bodies, when my phone started acting aggressive, ringing over and over again, making me abort the progress and answer.My little sister. Calling me while putting on large amounts of blue mascara.

“Can you drive me to Grünerløkka (=very cool place for very cool people in Oslo, obviously not for me!) in 10 min?”
“No, sorry”
“Why? What are you doing?” Definitely not going to answer that, even family must think I have something better to do than play Lord of the Flies on a Saturday night.
“Just… relaxing, I have been out driving all day. I don’t want to go out again. And you live 200 meters away from the bus stop!”
“Fine!!! I knew you wouldn’t do it, bye!”

Then, 5 seconds after my mum calls, trying to make me feel bad by telling me how many girls being attacked in the streets of Oslo lately and that couldn’t I do my little sister this favour? I was on the edge of saying fine, ok I’ll do it but then my evil side kicked in and told me to stop being nice for once. And told them there is no bloody taxi sign on my car, neither a “available 24/7” sign above my head. Just because  I live alone and don’t have any plans does NOT make me a pusover. Have fun taking the bus, byeeee! And it felt good but also made me a bit sad. So, while considering going back to the flies who were probably lol’ing and showing me the finger in the kitchen, I saw a mail ticking in from one of my guildies. It was the sweetest screenshot ever, and only said “for you”. Totally made all angry and sad thoughts go away and made me smile from ear to ear. Going to have a glass of  cold white wine and relax for rest of the evening. And I won’t feel bad for a millisecond!
