The real question is: Why don’t YOU carry a glossy of Ryan North in your wallet at all times?

If you do, feel free to photo reply. Topatoco should sell these.

I would totally carry a photo of Ryan North around in my wallet. I second the motion for Topatoco to sell these.

#7ImageUpload for Amanda Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra concert in Atlanta next weekend.

This was a really fun project. I got to dig through all my old photos, take a bunch of new ones, and get reacquainted with photoshop. I also realized how much I really enjoy photography and hopefully now that my camera’s out and not buried in the closet I’ll keep using it.

Back in the day when I played WoW, I’d draw people avatars of their characters.  Packing character details and personality into a 100x100 pixel image was always a fun challenge.

Here is a quilt of a small sample of the avatars I drew.

Middle one on the bottom row is my Vasu! I love this even more now, because the pre-Cataclysm world-reboot changed the model of that purple hat and I haven’t found a suitable replacement for it. Thank you Pike! <3

Hi Tumblr

So it is the first morning in a while that I have had time to sit down at the computer with some tea. I haven’t posted on here in forever and I don’t even know what I’m going to do with this blog thing. I’ve been wanting to (re)start blogging but I have not quite chosen a venue.

But now my tea and computer time is up. Time to get dressed, figure out what I’m bringing for lunch today, and go put barcodes on books in a cold dry room for eight hours.

Work is so weird.

Made tea. Queued for dungeon. Ran Heroic Grim Batol. Tea got cold and sad. Drank it anyway.

Just a week and a day

before we leave for New Orleans. I’m looking forward to this trip way more than is probably normal. Because I really need a vacation from spending all my time worrying about my impending joblessness, and because I’ll hopefully get some valuable job search advice.

Maybe I’ll meet someone who will think I’m so awesome that they hire me on the spot.

But probably not.

I’m not moving (though I am job-searching, and I’ll move without hesitation if someone wants to hire me pretty much anywhere).

But my druid is considering moving. Back in Lich King I discovered I really liked raiding. At the beginning of Cataclysm I moved my druid to a new guild on the same server. But they’re not raiding anymore, and I wasn’t there long enough to become friends with anyone, so Vasu’s current guild serves no purpose at all.

So I’m considering moving again, and this time possibly off-server. I posted in the Guild Recruitment forum and got a few responses, two of which I’m considering. I don’t want to switch to Alliance. There is too much personality in Vasu that I just couldn’t make him any other race.

I haven’t been playing much. I really miss playing, but every time I log in, I’m just bored. I think making some new friends who could help me gear up and start raiding would get me back into it.

If anyone reads this and has a guild with room for a girl with her not-yet-raiding-ready druid, I’d like to hear from you.
