1. He’s started every morning for the last thirty years with the same mundane rituals, but for the first time in his life he has no place he has to be.

2. Once upon a time there lived a very old man on the shores of a very young sea.

3. With the internal dampeners offline the ship is paralyzed, any sudden movements could be fatal to her organic crew, but there are still two missiles incoming.

4. Visual illusions are only as convincing as the mage is clever and shadows aren’t meant to cast shadows of their own. He was dead before he realized his mistake.

5. The stars burn like banked embers in the sky.

Go Cat, Go!

Well it's about time...
Well it’s about time…

Soo… yeah.  Better late than never, eh? ^_~;

Thanks to the recent Nerd Fitness Assassin’s guild mini-challenge I’ve been getting back into the swing of things in Azeroth. Which means I might actually hit level 100 sometime this year… (I’m assuming anyway. I have no idea how long it will take to level anymore.)

I’ve mostly figured out how the Garrisons work again (although I need to re-read the Wowhead guide figure out how to get to Level 2) and I’ve started moving forward in the quest-line. I’m trying to be obsessive about doing every single last quest in an area so I don’t have to come back later.

The last thing I did before log off was head back to the bank so I can get rid of all this random stuff I’ve picked up. (I think my bank & vanity guild bank are full, but I’m holding out hope. *crosses fingers*)

Killer Bunnies of DOOM! I’ve actually been really enjoying the story lines, although it’s a bit of mood whiplash to go from watching people die in cut-scenes to being followed around by a pack of helpful killer bunnies… o_O;

To be fair, I really really enjoyed the killer bunnies… they should be summonable minions. For reasons.

Back to the grindstone!

Summary: “Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said; “one can’t believe impossible things.” “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” Alice in Wonderland

1. The sky is overcast and murky gray, packed with the sort of clouds you suffer through in fall, but it’s the middle of summer and they’re wildly out of place.

2. I’ve finally reached the tipping point where life gets easier instead of harder.

3. They can’t grant every wish, even faeries have their limits, so they use the smallest of their magics to release the overflow as fireflies.

4. Horses are more intelligent than the English give them credit for and she uses that weakness to her advantage. Rumors of her witchcraft are just that, but she’ll happily barter superstition for a chance to work inside the Duchess’s stables.

5. Stories never begin with headaches. They all start with happy protagonists rushing out into the world– not curled up in bed with the covers over their head trying to ignore the pain.
