As of 3 am this morning, I have lost my husband for the week, probably longer. The new expansion for World of Warcraft was released.
I’m a firm believer in the couple that games together, stays together.
But, I don’t play anymore. I played from BC through Mists and attempted Warlords for about a month after it came out. For the most part, the game just lost its appeal to me. This expansion is highly tempting though. The demonhunter class looks like oodles of fun and what is better than demon slaying? Too bad that I went so far as to get rid of my desktop computer. (The graphics were shite and I couldn’t stand looking at it any longer.) Despite the temptation with the new x-pac, I would have to spend hundreds of dollars in order to play again. My laptop can’t handle the kind of power required to save Azeroth and Outland.
So the motto changes; couples that game/read together, stay together.
I know a lot of couples argue over gaming, lots of wife/husband aggro. But honestly, my husband is lucky that I understand AND don’t mind being ignored for a lengthy time period. I’m my own person and I’ve got shit to do.
Happy Gaming! Slay some demons in my name!
When you’re young and dumb and full of excitement, you tend to do dumb things that seem like a grand idea at the time. For example, letting a friend who is learning to tattoo, practice on you. Free tattoos sound good but let me be the first to tell you, “STOP! Don’t do it!”
Unfortunately, both my husband and I made these mistakes back in the day. So, for his birthday this year, he asked to get his monstrosity fixed. One of my patients at the pharmacy is a tattoo artist, we’ve been chatting about tattoos for years so it was time to make an appointment. After the appointment last night, it was decided that it was time to start redoing all those old tattoos in the future.
Cupcakes and Machetes tattoo advice: Do your research! And live by this motto: “Good tattoos aren’t cheap and cheap tattoos aren’t good.”
If you combine those two pieces of advice, you will save yourself a lot of money in the long run.
Well now that I am properly stuffed with homemade blueberry pancakes, I can think again. I become a monster when not fed. For years my best friend has compared me to the Hulk when I’m hungry. Which leads me to the point of this post.
I always get into them in phases, meaning I go an undetermined amount of time obsessed with them and then they drop off my radar again. Because I am currently reading Fight Club 2 and a Goodreads friend invited me to their comic group, I feel the dark abyss rising up to greet me once again.
(I really think this was the only acceptable way to do a Fight Club continuation.)

I know, I know! I have been so completely vacant on this blog. I’m tsk tsking myself as we speak. The world is so full of insane topics for me to make fun of I just can’t seem to decide which one to pick!
So today I shall make fun of myself and my stupid affection for World of Warcraft. (Punching myself for putting stupid and WoW in the same sentence. I actually adore my love of the game.)
Tonight at midnight is the release of the new expansion pack Mists of Pandaria. I have not been excited. So I didn’t ask for the day off of work. Now slightly regretting that decision.
Yes we can make fun of playing pandas all live long day. Yes I’ve heard about a million Kung Fu Panda jokes. BUT I DON’T CARE! A new race is a new race and a new class is a new class. I had never thought I would get bored with WoW but Cataclysm sure showed me what for!
Are you excited or could you care less? (If you play the game that is.)
So here’s to a new xpac and the dreams of having fun again!!
Finding a girl that enjoys playing video games is rare. Finding a hot girl that plays video games is one in a million.
Perhaps it is this reason that leads me hate virtually every girl gamer I’ve met. Reasons listed below:
1. They think just because they’re a girl and play video games, it automatically means they’re the coolest girl ever.
2. They frequently use the fact that they have a vagina to get attention from random creeps online. And giggle happily about it.
3. 95% of the time they suck at the game. Focus on my vagina, forget game mechanics!
4. They think all other girl gamers want to be BFFs and “Us girls gotta stick together!”
Consequently, the other option is girls that don’t play any video games. Nagging ensues…..boy is miserable…….girl makes boy choose between the two……girl loses.
The couple that games together, stays together.
Or at least that’s my logic. Now fuck off, it’s time to play some World of Warcraft.
