Only Blogging when it rains

Its true, when your ‘happy’ there is less drama to blog about..

I’ve survived in the new guild for over a week, and last night was taken off trial and made a raider.

I think I’m fitting in – maybe shocked them a little sometimes. Given as much rib as I have taken. Tried to be active in Raid, in Vent, In forums. Worked hard, learnt from mistakes, been prepared ect ect..

I’ve been on most of the posted raids, even though I don’t mind not going to every single raid. It means I get to potter around – do my own thing.

People seem nice ect ect.. still honeymooning sorta in that everything is all a little rosey. Would like a few more vocal females on vent though only so I don’t feel like a chatterbox.

Trying to feel out the dynamics of the guild members, whos close to who – married to who ect ect without asking direct questions, or stepping on toes, or saying the wrong thing.

I caught a train with a Horde player from my server that I’ve known for years, and who was also a flatmate for a short period of time, and he imparted on me some advice.
” Do not get involved with a guildy” except with more colorful language.

and this is relevant and important advice at the momement, because when someone is /hugging /flirting with you in a raid EVERYONE notices – and then I get accused of having a pocket healer.

Nothing is going on… really…

Trying to be a girl – without being too girly so that you are still taken seriously and not thought as as a flirt, and you just can’t make the same jokes to guys that they make to each other because it can be taken way out of context. No wonder girls are quiter on vent. Or only log into vent during Business ( raid ) hours.

    It’s interesting to hear your perspective. When I started playing 3 1/2 years ago, I was guilded with friends, but always minded my own business. I was in a raiding guild when raiding meant going to Blackrock Mountain. I made a friend in guild, a single guy, who I met when he pretty much forced his help on me. He wanted to quest in STV, I was questing in STV, we were both mid-30’s, and we spent the next almost-30 levels questing together. Everyone in our guild thought we were an item, even though I’m married and nothing was going on. We flirted, but sometimes being flirty is my way of communicating (I’m really very shy).

    For the last few years, though, I’ve been playing on a different realm than the one I started on, and have been playing with my husband. We’ve been guilded together the entire time, and in the last two years, we’ve only been in 3 guilds — our guild, a guild that we merged with, and the guild we’re currently in. The guild we’re in right now was formed from the guild we merged with after it fell apart (after one month). Loveth, my husband, has been the GL of our guild for the last 1.5+ years. So, our experience is very different. No one wonders who we’re married to, though new people have been known to not realize for a little while. We’re pretty obvious about it though.

    I flirt with guildies, of both genders, but it’s really all in good fun and nothing more. It’s been so long since I’ve been in a new guild, or have been a new guildie, that it’s really interesting to me to hear the perspective of someone who currently is/has.

    Okay, so now that I’ve written you a book, I’m off. 😀

    Wrote you a huge response, I think it was somehow eaten. /cry! For now, I’ll just say it’s really nice to hear the perspective of someone in a different situation than my own! 😀

    Normally I’d say don’t even worry about it because it’s just goofing off, but as a guy I’d have to admit that sometimes we let the little stuff inflate our egos.

    I remember one guy I finally had to kick from a guild because he was constantly telling one lady he was in love with her and wanted her to leave her husband and four kids to be with him… The guy was a 40 something who lived in the basement of his parents’ house, supposedly to take care of his ailing parents. He then proceeded to say we were spreading rumors and it was all untrue, then whispered her to tell her hopefully he saved her reputation and denied everything publicly. Although he whispered me to tell me that she said she loved him, which she vehemently denies.

    Wow there really are some weird people… Just be careful.

    I started dating my raiding guild’s MT and haven’t looked back since! Yes, he DOES have a pocket healer!

    No one’s really “wondered” because even when our original guild fell apart, we joined the next as a ‘pair’ and several of them were old guildies who knew us, anyway. Our current guild was founded by RL friends.

    I used to stay off vent except for raids, due to a mix of preferring the sound of my music and not wanting any more drunken ocmmentary on how nice my voice sounds (…). I force myself on there more now as an officer, but…yeah, yeah there’s a reason some of us don’t say a lot on Vent.

    …I’m not one of them though, when I’m on I am chatty as hell. >.>
