Do I post?

Add to Memories Share
Generally, no.  That's because I seldom have anything worth posting.  One of the first important things I ever heard was this:

"Opinions are like assholes.  Everyone has one, and they all stink."

Mine aren't any different than anyone else's in the stink department.  However i have made a decision to stay more connected, and this is as good a place as any to start.  I don't remember when I started this thing, and haven't managed so much as a single post per year.

Who knows?  Maybe I'll do something exciting this year.  *snerk*  Don't bet the rent money on it.

Greetings, one and all.  *bows*

I just left a guild on WA, and am looking for one who can stand a DK who isn't the hottest thing on three legs, or decked in purple, but is generous with his time and materials.  Namely me.

I probably don't play my class right, but maybe someone will help?  And what I lack in combat skills, I make up for in professions/secondary professions.  I am currently at lvl 74, specced blood.  My Mining/JC score is 450/400, waiting for me to hit lvl 75. 

What I want is a place where RP is encouraged but not mandated, PVP is at the player's discretion, dungeon raiding is fun and educational, and people work together to make the best gear possible for all members.  (All really good gear is interdisciplinary, after all.  :D)  Someone want to give me a chance?  I  will do everything I can to help the guild succeed and flourish.

Thank you.

WoW

Add to Memories Share
A few days ago, I applied for membership in Ladies of WoW.  Bit of a misnomer--don't consider myself to be a lady of any flavor, and never did, but they WERE World of Warcraft and so polite.  Reading the notes, I noticed that they preferred to see visual proof of player interest on the prospective member's page.  Makes sense.

So, if you're checking my page out, yes, I do play WoW.  My main is on the Scarlet Crusade server (US)  He is named Beruthiel, a level 76 (currently) a frost mage dual speccing in fire, too.  Here's his page in the WoW Armory:

Anyone curious about my alts is advised to ask.  I promise to be respectful and polite.

You know, I didn't die.  Not even close.  A stroke doesn't count, in my book.

Never did like the holiday season--something to just get through.  I think it always will be.  There's got to be better things to do for that lamentable two weeks at the end of the year.

Don't celebrate my birthday (what's to celebrate?) don't look forward to Christmas.  At this rate, I may as well be a Jehovah's Witness (now THERE'S a depressing notion)  When January gets started in earnest, I will crawl back from under this rock.  Until then, I believe it's varsity sleep for me (could stand some catching up)

Do you change clothes when you come home from work or class? What do you put on?

Oh, hell no.  What I wear is what I wear.  Pretty much all the time, too.

Lent

Add to Memories Share
You know, I would think the sole purpose of Lent (all forty days of it) is to become thoroughly tired of it.  If not for the fact that fifty days of celebrating Easter becomes even MORE tiresome, that is.  Too bad  you can't break up these blocks of time into something a little less unwieldy.

Might make fasting go faster, too.  :D  Why do they call them fasts when they're so stinkin' SLOW?

Coerulea Cattleyas

Add to Memories Share
Remember what I said about orchids?  (points down)

Well, a long time ago, I developed a minor fixation on "blue" cattleyas.  (see picture)

Okay, calling it "minor" is akin to calling Hurricane Katrina a minor squall.  Coerulea madness is like orchid addiction with a side of crack.  Right now, it's chewing holes in my social life, but it's amazingly fun, so I'm not complaining.

Are these things great or what?

Orchids

Add to Memories Share
 Does anyone else here grow orchids?  

And I mean by growing devoting unconscionable amounts of time on what amounts to a foreign weed.  Growing orchids is less a hobby and more a socially-acceptable obsession.  There really IS no reasonable interest in orchids: you either think "Pretty flowers" or you eat, drink, breathe, sleep them.  Not much of a middle ground here.

Were it not for the fact that all orchids are adult the moment they bloom, fiddling with their reproductive bits, even discreetly done in the privacy in one's home or greenhouse, might seem indecent.  Ah, the pitfalls of being a hybridizer.  I get funny looks all the time when I go into what orchids really do to reproduce.

I have the opinion that you don't have orchids--orchids have YOU, and somehow you live with THEIR foibles.  But they make good houseguests, and they're worth having around.  The flowers make it all worthwhile.  No jewelry on earth can possibly compare.
