A rather productive day.

The mageling dinged 62 this morning, and Miz Kedria is going into heroic Sethekk tomorrow to finish up the tail end of her epic purple birdy questline, after doing the first fifteen quests tonight.

Good times.

Glory day. Farewell to Azeroth.

Mageling hit L58, skipped into the Outlands, and with the assistance of [ profile] relfen, replaced the weapon/offhand and wand that she'd had since L35 with the very first two quest rewards she got.

There is 10 Ironweb Spider Silk between my mageling and 300 tailoring.

She needs 300 tailoring so she can do something with the - I kid you not - SEVENTEEN HUNDRED pieces of netherweave cloth that have been taking up her bag, bank and mailbox space. (That's 280-odd bolts. Holy crap, yo.)

Edit: WOOT! Got it!

Tonight's highlights in WoW:

Mageling dinged 51 and 52 between about 6 and 10pm. Leveling changes FTW.

Then, upon hearing that I had never killed Hogger before on any character, I was informed by the guild leader that I was going to not only treepunch Hogger, but do the quest. (5.4 silver FTW.) So I one-shot treepunched Hogger for 1273 (Quicktime movie, about 15 seconds long).

Then me and the 7 guildies who had come to watch stood around Goldshire (where we'd turned in the quest) and randomly dueled each other.

Me and one of the other trees in the guild punching each other (Quicktime movie, about one minute long). I'm the one who won. :) We dueled three times - I think the one I recorded is the one where the two trees headbutt each other, and the ending tree-drops-to-knees-and-begs-for-mercy cracks me up.

After the tree duel, I was about to go to bed, when I was randomly struck with the urge to challenge our guild leader - a prot paladin - to a duel. Thirteen minutes, two innervates and two mana pots later, I won!

Recent happenings.

Good -
- lots of good WoW developments - several first-kills, a flaming horsie with fangs, level 50 and a water elemental named Fred.
- My baby brother proposed to his girlfriend on Christmas day, and she accepted. (Related weird: This means that my 25-year-old brother will have a 11-year-old stepson. Also weird: Both my younger siblings are dating people older than me. I am the only one who finds any of this weird.)
- I have about six knitting projects currently on needles.
- In correlation, I have about twelve million various movies/TV series in queue to watch/rewatch in the not-so-distant future.
- The girls did absolutely AWESOME at their initiation last night - every single one of them, including the pro tems, had at least a 95% accuracy rate on their parts. (They need to practice their square corners, IMO, but Michigan Rainbow was rather more formal than Washington Rainbow appears to be. Or maybe it's just that my mother advisor was a million years old and picky.)
- At the installation on Saturday, not only is one of the board members bringing me the OES Petition I've been waiting for for two months, but apparently the Worthy Matron will be there and I can meet her. Spiffy.

Bad -
- I had my first math exam last night. I think I might've eked out a good solid C. On the plus side, the rest of the class involves less graphing and more actual equations, and he tosses out the lowest of the three exams for grading purposes.
- The closet door behind my desk randomly fell off the track last night. This has been happening a lot in our apartment lately. I don't like it when sliding doors jump off their tracks for no explainable reason.
- Still waiting on both of my W2s and both of Dan's W2s. Feh.
- Coworker? So. So. So. Stupid.

Awesome -
- Who has plane tickets to Nashville for the third week of June? OH HAY THAT WOULD BE ME.

Mageling hit L40 tonight :)

Walnut! )

I did every bit of today's writing on my Sidekick on the bus. There's a new character sneaking her way into my story, weirdly. A little girl - about 6 at her first appearance, and utterly traumatized. She will, of course, die tragically. But not til she's older. And I'm not quite sure what she'll do in the meantime, with one very specific exception. Which will, of course, utterly devastate my main lady. Augh, I'm loving this.

Then I came home, took Kedria to Arcatraz where none of the stuff we wanted dropped, and bribed my favorite pally tank to run my mageling (currently less than 10% shy of L31) through the Stockades. This (link is a short video; about 35 seconds?) looked cooler with the numbers showing - I forgot that I'd turned off the UI display on the video settings - but it's still pretty cool, if I do say so myself. All the purple booms? That's me. :)

Video is currently uploading. If you're looking at this before about 11:30pm Seattle time, it probably won't be there quite yet. It's up now.

Also? New icon love from [ profile] elsrik.

It was a pretty good weekend, though as usual regretfully short.

Friday night:
We two-shot the High King (grrrr - Krosh Firehand, we hate you) and one-shot Gruul, then banged our heads against the Lurker for a while. Post-raid, I hung out with a lovely pair of awesomeness and ate Chinese food and watched Next.

Leveled my mageling a bit - she's now well past the L25 bump, which is where my alts tend to flag, and has only 13 levels to go before she doesn't have to flippin' TRUDGE everywhere! (Her elephant will be named Walnut.) Bashed our heads on Lurker some more. People were being dumb, and one of our sub-leads didn't seem to be interested in calling out individually anyone who was being dumb, so the raid leader decided to call out the raid as a whole - and while it didn't do well by the half of the raid who wasn't being dumb, it seemed to do the trick on most of the ones who WERE. We took two more shots after the dressing-down - the first would've been successful if the fish in the water hadn't respawned when the Lurker was at 30%, and the second was quite succesful with only two deaths, one due to repeated DCs.

Karrec's Kara raid one-shot most of the bosses they've downed before, and two-shot Curator for a first-blood kill. Woot! Next week, I'm actually going to try to DPS Moroes between traps. *shock* Post-Kara, there was a Mech run where the Calculator did not drop either of the items Karrec needs :( and, after that, I was planning to go yarn and movie, when I was advised that my favorite paladin was planning to solo the panther boss in Zul'Gurub and wanted witnesses. So five of us went along to watch, and I tested the new video capability built into the Mac client as of 2.2 - seems to work quite nicely! Paladin of Sparkly Awesomesauce dropped her on the second attempt, after a 29 minute fight. We also spanked the raptor and tiger bosses, meanwhile dying a couple of times on various trash, mostly because people pulled two or three areas at a time. Cracked me up, I tell you what.
