Happy New Year, what are your resolutions?

Happy New Year to each and everyone.

My resolutions are:

1) To get more active and get more exercise to help me lose some weight.

2) Drink less pop and more water to help with the above.

As to WOW:

1) Find a good guild, since my guild has basically been put on life support.

2) Get into Kara and beyond.

3) Learn to control my character better, using macros and keybindings instead of clicking. Not sure if I am going to go mouse movement or remap to use the numpad to move with.

Oh woah is me for trying to do BG daily quests

All night long we horde were either outnumbered or full of tards, but after 3 AB, I was able to complete the daily quest. Of course I had to get a couple WSG in and an EotS, the EotS was a nice quick loss as I joined in progress, but I got a mark which I don't have a lot of.

I need to read up on the strat for EotS too. OH and the AB "fix" has broken the horde side in my battlegroup. I haven't been in on a win yet. I am sad.

Anyway, I am back into WOW, now I just need to get my good computer back up and running. I am about to turn it over to a professional.

WTF? my Monitor is going crazy

Okay so tonight I watch a little TV after work, then come in to check email and my monitor is kinda fuzzy. Could be me, my blood pressure is a bit high due to not eating right and being way overweight, but it's odd. Could be the position of the monitor, it's a bit too low, needs to be raised up but it's too late to mess with tonight.

Dick made a comment about maybe the new job getting me back into WOW a bit more. Actually what's really keeping me down in WOW is the computer issue. I just need to get the MOBO replaced and I think I'll play more. Single digit FPS is just not a good thing. That and my server being a bit odd kinda makes for hard times. Anyone else see one side running the zone PvP stuff in Outlands and no one on your side wants to take it from them?

On another positive note, I traded in my 05 Kia Optima for an 07 Suzuki XL7. Payments went up but much bigger car. Seriously I am 6'4" and that Optima was way too small. What was I thinking?

Anyone got any cool plans for the Christmas Holidays? My family pretty much lives around here and we'll have Christmas over at my aunt's house with the big family and mostly just hang out here when not over there. Plus, I don't have any day off but Christmas Day, so that'll limit any cool plans.

My name is FTP and I cannot jumpshoot

Okay, sadly, I am a keyboard mover. I don't move with the mouse, can't get it to work right, it feels so...awkward. Heck, sadly, during my days in DragonRealms (text based RPG for the olde) I used to use the numpad for moving room to room and all the keyboard for macros and such. Sadly, I cannot do it in WOW. I am ashamed.

Hi. My name is Halkale and I cannot jumpshoot.
/hangs head in shame.

Oh yes, I know the idea and the process and can do it if I want to, but like I said, I cannot do it in the battle. Hence, why I probably suck so bad at the PvP thing. (although I usually do well because I know my class)

Here's what set this off.

Please don't hurt me if you read this Shifttusk. Plug:

Back In PIE!

Okay I am back!

The previously mentioned new job is going well. I have a lot of opportunity for advancement there and they seem to like me. Yeah, strange right?

I still don't have my main computer fixed and it has really put a damper on my WOW playing. It's just hard to play the game at the lowest settings and almost come to a standstill in the major cities. I haven't even tried to do any instances.

I made 69 but dang what used to be most nights 3-4 hours has come out to be very little play time and barely even playing on the weekends.

Rant on:
My server's economy sucks bad. I put on a bunch of greens from the outlands and sold very little of it. Oh sure the runecloth and lower healing pots sold. My first server was pretty new and after about 6 months it started settling down especially after the transfers were opened. My current server transfers have been open for many months and still the economy is horrible. Rant off:

My guild is not going well, we keep losing folks and not really gaining as many. Of course, I haven't been around much so part of the problem is I don't think we are recruiting. The server seems to be very small especially on the horde side so that adds to the problem.

Oh for those of you who don't know, BRK has moved. Link has been updated.

My cat is falling so far behind. I try to bring her out when I am grinding mats for leather working and primals but it so hard to get her caught up. Plus, that charge aggro is so very nice. The Boar appears to be my main pet now.

Here's a newish pic of me and him.
