Rants, ruminations, and rambling remarks from my mad, muddled, meandering mind.

The Post I Never Thought I'd Make

If you don't want to read about politics and the U.S. Presidential election, you should probably just skip this one. If you plan to plug your nose and pull the lever for the Republican candidate because you think the Democratic candidate is so much worse, then I urge you to stick around after the jump.

Pandarens, Brewfest, and Other Matters

I started this post last week, but then Brewfest happened. And then . . . other things.
Yes, yet again, Scooter and I have started new characters. But for now, Meeah Snowblossom and Táozi Emberbock will have to wait for their introduction. My stable is full on Argent Dawn, with only the character I haven't actually played being nameholder DK. Scooter's is close, though she's talked about deleting a couple redundant toons. I have maybe three solo toons. But, thanks to the Invasion XP boosting two of them to new places, I kinda lost their thread. I don't have a good handle on their personalities and goals.

Meanwhile, our reborn Mage/Priest combo, now called Mayliera and Robinia, are parked in Ironforge for the duration of the Brewfest event. While I have completed the Long Strange Trip achievement, Scooter never has, and she wanted to give it a go. Unfortunately, some of the the things require a much higher character, so it will be at least a year before she finishes. Of course, it took me forever, as well, due to varying interest levels on my part through the years.

Y'know, reading that "Long Strange Trip" post, I seem to have a perennial issue with erratic posting. It's not that I don't like to blog, but it seems my energy is going to other things. For instance, I have been following the U.S. presidential election closer than I have in a very long time. I have a rare overtly political post percolating. This isn't really the best place to post it, but it is the only place.

Scooter proofreads almost all my articles before I post them, for which I am very grateful. However, any mistakes are mine and mine alone (unless otherwise noted). If you are reading this post through RSS or Atom feed—especially more than a couple hours after publication—I encourage you to visit the actual page, as I often make refinements after the fact. The mobile version also loses some of the original character of the piece due to simplified formatting.
