As a haunter, I would totally sidle up and see what/who it is, and if they are throwing it out... probably grab it and abscond with it. Shame to waste a good prop!

someday I'll find someplace to host a sig that isn't stupid money-grubbing photobucket

I'm adding my voice to those who want to see a picture! I'm really invested in this now!

WoW rant: I haven't had a lot of time to play, and the time I do have I spend on my main. But I'd really like to level up my DH. I enjoy the playstyle very much, but to level her, I'll have to go through quests that I've only recently completed on my hunter. And then I'd like to level my priest, my DK, my warlock...I really wish dungeons didn't have such a negligible amount of xp now. It's not that I'm too lazy to quest, I love questing. I just don't want to get absolutely sick of the zones and quests by doing them repeatedly.

Okay, it took me a while to get it. She's still there! It's been over a week, so it's certainly not meant for the trash, but at this point my friend and I have determined it MUST be an inanimate object. The 'hair' looks a bit like one of those knitted hats, and the boots seem to be a bit... flat? Like they aren't filled with feet. But that does leave the questions "Who put it there?" "Why does it look so much like a person? Is it meant to look like a person?" "Has anyone else noticed? Have they said anything to anyone?"

Who knows! I did get a picture, via my friends phone camera (so quality is probably a bit poor), I feel a bit weird posting a pic of someone's house xD... But I guess it can be found via Google maps, so it's not like the internet hasn't seen it before.

It's just.... very weird and creepy.

My condolences, Dewclaw.

Also, I hate that I'm trying to save up to move or go get a phd and bills pretty much eat up my savings. I will never escape retail. I should just die.

I'm so sorry Dewclaw.

The worst thing is... one of my best friends had to have one of his cats put down on Friday, she was terribly sick.
Even worse: we had to bring in my older cat (he's 13) to check his intestines... and he had to be put down on Friday as well.

So three of us now have lost good friends. :(

I was very worried, because my husband was crying an awful lot. He had a bit of trouble keeping his eyes on the road when we drove home. I've never seen him cry before, at least, not like that. I always thought I was the overly emotional one in the family.

A bit of palindromic wisdom:
"Step on no pets!"
Casual player.. don't raid, don't PvP. Suffer from extreme altitis
I love pets - combat or non.

My new pet peeve in wow...people who immediately ask for gear you've gotten in lfr. Like the minute I got my first piece of lfr loot for the night, hadn't even seen if it was an upgrade I get a whisper "you need that?"...seriously. Piss. Off. If someone offers up loot in chat - that's fine. But don't whisper me the minute I freakin get it! Reminds me of a cheapskate friend who'd never buy his own food when we'd go out and would ask "are you going to finish that?"....rude.

Oh and the sad thing was it wasn't an upgrade and I would of offered it up but I was so put off by that whisper I'd rather vendor it.

I've run into that too. Someone even had a macro that would spam raid chat with 'Soandso looted 'Whatever' which is an upgrade for 'PlayerWithAddon''. It's like... automated begging! Even more reason to just ignore raid chat.

That breed of herpes is super common at least, Tarn. Most of the population has it (including me). It flares when your immune system is low, though, so that's something to work on? Messing with the lesions rarely helps much (though they do suck, 100% totes agree).

This week has been so stressful. Saturday I had to rush my dog to the hospital due to a herniated disc. Basically a slipped disc. It's rendered him unable to move his back legs and he had surgery done Sunday. He just came home today. He's been recovering well, but he has had some trouble peeing on his own. The vet was able to express his bladder and has shown us how to use a catheter on him. Still, I can feel his frustration. He can't move his hind legs and this all happened so suddenly. He's confined for the next two weeks either in my room or in his crate and well... He's been whining. I've been trying to avoid having a panic attack about his condition despite the vets assuring me he'll be able to walk again as well as having promising signs. His whining has been starting to trigger my anxiety. It's not his fault, at all. He doesn't know and me being anxious is likely making him anxious too. He hasn't shown a lot of signs of pain and has been showing some reaction in his left leg too.

I'm hoping he calms down after a day or two. I know the first day back home is a bit harder since he has to re-adjust. I'm hoping he'll be able to pee on his own again in the next day or two. That will help settle my worries.

NEW SIGNATURE PENDING... SOON.

Some &!@#!@!&~!$ madman ran down a whole bunch of pedestrians right in the middle of the city today, just a block away from my work. Insane. Last report said three people dead, and 25+ injured. :(

Ururghghghh... look, I can tell that they're harking back to BC tier sets with the new T20s but... /GRONNSTALKER/!? The most hideous, awful, ridiculous, I-have-an-eyeball-on-my-goddamn-head set in the entire game? THEY REDID GRONNSTALKER?! Why not Demonstalker? Or hell, Riftstalker, it was really damn badass. BUT NO. GRONNSTALKER.

URG.

Thank god for mog.
