I remember days when servers were down and I wanted to waste my day doing nothing but watching pixels run around in purple hued environments. I remember the notices saying that due to a day of no-login we got “free days” between billing cycles. I recall the rants and raves that people had. I remember how our guild just sucked it up and dealt with it. It’s an online game that millions subscribe to. Servers have to be updated, problems happen, and yet the paying population demand 110% play-time. Sleep is not an option, breaks don’t exist, and HOW DARE THEY KEEP ME FROM MY GAME!!!
I feel pity for the people that can’t go on with their lives because they are deprived of their game. You know, there’s a reason I like playing, it’s called the people I get to play with. If you’ve played any other online game don’t you think you’d be aware the servers require down time for repairs and touch ups from all the work they get. If anything a few hours of relaxation is probably just what they need. A nice mother board massage and facial. Every…thing deserves a good massage!!
I’ve spent the day reading and having a cat curl up with me. I even went out the grocery store. I dislike not being employed, but I can’t quite bring myself to go to the one place I’m pretty sure would take me on: Pestmart. I could see if places are taking on seaonsal workers, I could go find a temp job. I’m sorely tempted after Thanksgiving to do just that.
Speaking of the cat. . er. .kitten, she’s getting fixed on Friday. We pick her up Saturday morning and head back to VA. We’re taking her up to Baltimore since it costs $500 + $60 initial consultation fee to get her spayed in Northern VA. The SPCA does this weird partner program that gives a whopping discount on spaying so you only pay $260. Uh…. no. The SPCA in Baltimore will spay her for $30. She has the sneezles too so we’re taking her to the vet so they can kill 2 birds with one stone. Cutest darn sneezes ever, but if I were her I’d be miserable. Poor Percy.
Anyways, I’m off to go do real things that don’t involve trying to hit 70 before WotLK comes out. Why can’t people focus on the happy thought: REST XP. Oh wait. . . they all have 70s with Orange T-eleventybillion and have daily heroics to do so they can get those Achievements squared away.
WHO THE &#$* CARES?!?!?!
And that sums up that.
