storm and WoW

Wow... what a thunderstorm. That even outclassed the storm at Falcon Ridge - though the Falcon Ridge one had the convenient property of clearing out afterwards, in such a way that the concerts could go on. And the convenient timing that meant I could stand out in it and get soaked through to the bone. Still, it was beautiful.

And it was really great to be playing WoW in that, with some good dramatic music playing on iTunes, fighting Dr. Theolen Krastinov the Butcher, with the lightning going on... Collapse )

And what a night it was in the game! So many good drops, and I rolled so well! Alanna's Embrace dropped off of Ras Frostwhisper, and I rolled 100 to win it! In addition, Recipe: Flask of Supreme Power dropped from the same guy, and went to me, as the only alchemist in the group (sorry, Lyonya!).

Dagny also picked up two pieces of the same set tonight, the Necropile Cuffs and the Necropile Leggings. I don't see them ever being worth wearing, given what it would be replacing, and what the rest of the set looks like, but it's kinda neat to collect these things anyway. Maybe it'll look good as a set. There were also some pants with + to healing spells that I ended up with.

Dagny really cleaned up. I'll post a screenshot of how she looks in the Alanna's Embrace as soon as I can. It's really quite the robe.

life stuff

I'm kind of bummed I didn't get to make it to OGC this weekend. Instead I slept a few hours on Saturday afternoon and generally recovered from my Falcon Ridge cold. I'll get to play most of the games again sometime, but the interactive event is forever lost to the stream of time. Oh well! It was worth it for that nap, dammit.

For the first time since I moved back to Boston over a year ago, I've bought a T pass. I've decided "I enjoy driving" isn't enough of an excuse to gratuitously drive to work day in and day out. I walked to Alewife after work yesterday, planning to go to Harvard Square to buy a T pass... asked the guy at the booth how late they sell them at H^2, and he pointed behind me, at the other booth. Turns out they sell T passes at Alewife, too! (Duh! Should have guessed...) So now it'll be easy for me to get the new one each month, as well!

I really, really should have known that was an option.
