|Dornaa was told not to jump on the couch...|
CD Rogue caught a cold over the weekend (he says sinus infection; I say the sniffles), and started blowing his nose, and if anything can shake one out of the biscuit zone, it's a snotty rogue. Now, there is a shabby, broken-down couch in the family room where I could repose, and I still may. I'm too sleepy to get any real serious writing done, so a collection of 'squees' before I consider jumping on the couch:
No, boredom is not one of my favorite things, but getting out of it is.
Perusing through Facebook, a teenager posted how bored he was:
Man, life is so boring. Everyday that I stay home, I do the same things everyday, and everyday im at school, I do the same things everyday. I need some adventure, I don't want to just go hangout at someones house or go out to eat, I want to go out on an adventure! F*ck this boring repetitive sh*t.
The grown-up response would be "then clean the bathroom" or something like that, but boredom affects everyone from time to time, and it doesn't seem to matter how much we have to do; if it's a grinding routine, it's boring. Sometimes though, I think you just have to give Boredom a big ol' squeeze, embrace it, and say, yup, you're Boring. Life by contrast, I suppose. Then when we're ready, we give Boredom its hat and send it on its way:
Inspired by http://www.kerismith.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/PocketScavengerflyersm.jpg - make a list of obscure things to do when WoW is back on-line.
http://wowheadlines.com - I love this front-page of Azeroth news. It had a lot of quick links to 5.4 news, which I've been actively avoiding.
2. Is it Garrosh and me, or Garrosh and I?
Neri Approves had this post the other day: http://neriapproves.com/2013/07/29/guild-macro-grammar-question/ and though I am not, IRL, exactly like Garrosh, I couldn't believe how much me and the tusked-one had in common. His blog is also one of my favorites: http://commandboard.wordpress.com
3. New Title: Romantic Geek
Yes, Navi. I am. What can I say? Everyone loves a good love story, with happy beginnings, endings, sad beginnings, and sad endings. All that awesomeness in between is good stuff.
4. The Graveyard Book
Erinys: our shared collective creative consciousness is cool. Thanks. So many fun projects, including the spirituality posts, and examining death in Azeroth. I am so weird.
5. Ravens and Crows
I love noticing the small moments of light and magic in Azeroth - they come in the real world, too. You just have to look.
