I love this series done by Kotaku Fake Gamer of the week ( not sure if there’s a US version but that’s the .au link ) It makes a mockery of gaming stock photos, and picks on every kind of fake gamer, girls, guys, old people! cyber goths and even babies.
2.I finally updated my blogroll ( Links to bloggers that haven’t been around since 2008. It was long over due ) my rss reader is very quite, but there are some bloggers, Tobold, Blessing of Kings, Big Bear Butt, Klep, Riv even, that just keep plugging away and writing, come hail, shine, rain, boredom, expansion, they keep writing, and that is all kinds of awesome. There are less and less bloggers who were around when I first started blogging about wow and that’s a little sad but its good to see the old timers being battle bloggers of a sort.
3. I’m not raiding in MOP, ( hurt me if I end up raiding after all - but I am going to try damn hard not to) I tried to not raid in Cata. This whole attempting to make sure I have a life, and follow other worthy pursuits didn’t quite work out, but I did enjoy my cata raiding, It’s very difficult to date and raid. When you are kicking someone out because you need to get on the pc to raid, or being non-committal to seeing someone because you’re not sure if that’s the night your going to kill the next big boss then priorities need a little tweaking. Dating a raider didn’t work out either.
4. I’m getting a short story published in a local anthology. Weeeeee. They are even having a book launch! ( but not until October) I was pretty happy to get in. They published a story of mine 2 /3 years ago, and I was motivated this year to enter again. I spent more time editing it ( with a friends help – who is better then I at things like grammar ) then I did writing it. But I felt it was as polished as it was going to get. I still have to go to an editing workshop which I am sure it will be polished again and made even better!
