Account Cancelled

I say with a heavy heart that my husband and I have cancelled our WoW accounts. Gabi hasn't logged in for a long while having found other projects to occupy his time. I have the interest to play but not really the time. We were both ok with just letting our account live on in case we found the time and desire to play.

Unfortunately, the current economic down turn isn't going to allow us to do that. At least for now.

The good news is that we are still employed! The kinda cruddy thing happening is forced days off without pay to help the company budget. Two mandatory days off a month without pay. It's not so bad but since Gabi and I work for the same company, it's 4 days without pay (almost a week's paycheck *poof* gone). We're not in any kind of dire straights, just needed to trim some fat from the budget until we get to work full schedules again.

This means this site will most likely not be updated and just consider the desdarii twitter finished. I know I haven't been the most active since the baby was born anyway so not a huge loss to WoW bloggers. Still it's been great fun and perhaps someday soon I'll find my way back!

Breaking News: I Played WoW

My wonderful husband was able to fix my WoW issue and I successfully logged it and stayed in game last night!

First thing that happened was I was granted a title "Champion of the Frozen Wastes". I actually should have earned this title last month but WoW somehow had forgotten that I had done the Culling of Stratholme. I didn't think it too big a deal. I would find time to do the dungeon again eventually. Now I don't have to worry about it. WoW suddenly remembered my past victory and I have the title now!

I also finally remembered to take a picture of me riding the Sandbox Tiger. I had fun roleplaying in Dalaran with it. Mostly with my self as is the norm but my chatter in /say did make people stop and stare at me.

Experiencing Technical Difficulties

I definitely had the time to log on and enjoy WoW over this long weekend. Extra long for my husband and I as we had Monday off (without pay) as well. Unfortunately, my laptop is so used to not playing WoW, it freaked out and would turn off when I attempted to play.

I'm serious. I could do anything else I wanted on the laptop without issue. I could fart around on the Internet. I could sort and edit gobs of memory hogging pictures. I turn on WoW and 5 minutes later the laptop is dead.

When I turn it back on it complains about being too hot and shutting down. It shouldn't be hot. I have it properly propped up and ventilated with a fan blowing on it's bottom. I think my computer is just a whiner.

My hubby's been trying to sort out what it's deal is but so far no luck. I know he'll figure it out though. He's super smart like that. Until then I guess I'll just have to find something else to do.

I don't believe I have logged in at all since getting the Sandbox Tiger. Such are the pitfalls of parenthood but I'm honestly not regretting it. Baby is discovering her hands and learning to smile and giggle and she's great fun!

Plus last weekend we decided to paint the living room. It took all weekend and shift changes for taking care of the little gnome. The room now looks really stinking good if I do say so myself so it was worth it.

So I have no WoW news to report this week and that's just tough cookies. I'm certain I'll find some spare time someday. Baby is starting to sleep more which is nice but right now I usually use that downtime to sleep myself. I'll be back but don't wait up for me!
And now... cuteness.

Sandbox Tiger

My husband enjoys the WoW Minis quite a bit. Not so much for playing the minis game, just because he likes collecting them. He recently graduated from college and for one of his presents we got him two mini boxes.

In one of the boxes there was a Sandbox Tiger card. Since he is a loving and wonderful husband he gave the card to me. I'm sort of a sucker for stupid nonsense items. It's pretty fun to play with. For those not aware, it's like one of those playground rocker toys. This is a spectral tiger on a spring.

Here I would of most likely included a picture of me riding my new Sandbox Tiger but unfortunately my WoW screenshots folder got corrupted somehow. I logged in to take a new picture last night but went and killed Ahune instead and then completely forgot all about my tiger. Sorry. I've always been a bit ditsy though. Maybe I'll remember to take one some other time and include it.

My only complaint would be it only has 50 charges. Why!? Why can't I just have a Sandbox Tiger toy to play with forever? It's just a fun silly item. It makes me sad and now I don't use it as much as I probably normally would just because I want to save it for special occasions.

In other news, I have finished all the Fire Festival events and got my new title. Woo! Desdarii the Flame Warden. Yeah, I don't suspect to be using that one often.
