Last night I had a wild hair and decided to share some personal photos, along with some self deprecating humor and anti-WoW themed ramblings. Those of you that caught those posts, consider yourselves lucky. 😉 For, at about eight o’clock this morning I was lying in bed thinking… “I was pretty ripped when I posted that stuff… maybe I’d better yank those down for further review…”, which is exactly what I did. I’d had more than the occasional beer last night, then had a crazy notion around midnight… Hey… blogging sounds like a good idea..! 🙄
Back on task
My 3 week absence from posting is officially over. I didn’t intend to drop the things like that, but well… s**t happens. I got behind in all facets of life and work earlier last month, which was then exacerbated by the website troubles I’d experienced. After putting WoW on hold for about a week, I came back to playing a …
So, What’s Your Story?
With the World of Warcraft 5 Year Anniversary now underway, it prompted me to reflect back upon when I first started exploring the World of Azeroth as a level 1 Hunter. It was sometime in February of 2006 when I emerged at the starting zone in Teldrassil… and well, the rest is history.

Up until that point, the only computer game I had been playing was Diablo II LOD. Although I enjoyed the hell out of it, I’d been playing it for 5 years or so, and was starting to take notice of some other games I’d seen reviews of online. One of them was WoW.
The Home Office
AKA “my corner of the bedroom”. My wife and I own a quaint little home near the historic downtown area of the city in which we live in. I won’t get get too specific, as to ward off any would-be stalkers on the internets, but it’s in California. Anyway, our home is fairly small which is pretty typical of homes …
A Much Needed Break
Although my unfortunate computer troubles last week caused me a lot of grief from a business standpoint, it did provide me with a nice respite from WoW. I had been feeling pretty “bleh” about a lot of things in-game prior to last week, so this 8 day reset came at a nice time. Even though it didn’t seem like much …
