world of warcraft

This is badass. I’ve been actively not playing World of Warcraft for the past two hours. I patched and launched the game at about 7:30 and since then have done nothing but try to make it work again.

I was waiting for mail to be delivered in WoW when I realized it takes an hour, not 30 minutes to mail equipment to yourself. So now I’m signing off and going to bed, but in an attempt to post more, with content or not, I’m gonna make a late night, blurry eyed post.

So the past couple weeks have been all about getting new equipment in and distributing it to the faculty. We got new “Small Form Factor” PCs (some people call them Shuttles because Shuttle is one of the biggest manufacturer of SFF cases), new iMac G5s and a whole whopping pile of new laptops (and there’s nothing in that whole pile for me – boo hoo). Anyway, they started really cluttering up the office and store room. In addition to that, we had recieved 10 new laser printers a couple months ago and we are still in the process of replacing them as well. Needless to say, its been tough to get anywhere or do anything in any of our offices lately. I have been trying to roll out the new computers to make space, but the downfall of that, is bigger computers come back in their place. So I finally decided that we weren’t going to clear enough space to do the big project I’d been holding off on and went ahead and packed up some printers that were to be sent off to Dell to be destroyed. We rolled out two of the largest printers that were just taking up space in the office, a medium sized printer that hadn’t worked in years, and two small printers that were probably salvaged from Apollo 11. We had to pack them back up in boxed that we had recieved the new printers from Dell in, which was funny because three printers were too big to fit in the boxes, and two were too small. I ended up stuffing two in one box, one in a second box, and two into four more boxes (1 printer per 2 boxes).

It was a nice break from the usual humdrum of the office, and some needed excersize since the rec center is closed this week and I’m doing nothing but eating cake and pie! The only downside, which was really more humorous than anything else, was that I dropped a large papertray on my leg and it left a nice red welt down the length of my shin. Really nice. It’ll probably hurt like hell tomorrow, but it’s pretty badass looking eitherway.

It seems like something funny and entertaining happened this afternoon that would be worthy of posting, but damned if I can remember now. I did go to lunch with Steve at Jackoff in the Box today. I needed to be back in the office by 2:00 for a meeting, so I didn’t want to risk going home and being late (though, ironically enough, the people we were meeting with were late and it was only because I was waiting for them that I dropped the printer drawer on my leg). Steve and I don’t get to hang out enough and I sort of regret that. I mean, we spend every day in the office, but its not the same as going out and sitting somewhere and being forced to chat and make conversation. I can’t say I remember at all what we talked about, but I know it was pleasant and I recall laughing a bit.

That pain is still present in my shoulder/back. Its just a crick that will work its way out, but I still get annoyed by them. Speaking of things my body does that annoy me (don’t fear, this isn’t about bodilly fluids, sounds or smells).

I will admit that I have the very bad habbit of cracking joints, primarilly my knuckles. In addition to my knuckles, the following joints also crack: my elbows, knees, toes, ankles, neck, at least three points in my back and on rare occasion, my sternum. I will admit to forcing at least a few of those to crack just for the stupid teenage boy cool factor, others are a result of accidents, injuries or just wear and tear. I’ve tried to break the habbit in the past, but I just don’t have the will power to do so. I do, however, try to refrain from causing any more joints to crack, because once they crack, you never go back. Well, the other day, my wrists hurt, both of them. Not really hurt, per se, but were just stiff and achy (like my knuckles do right before I crack them. I started doing some stretches and excersizes I learned to prevent carpal tunnel and other repetitive stress injuries when both wrists, one right after the other cracked and relaxed. Now I can’t stop thinking about how good that felt. I guess that’s just one more to add to the list.

So now I’m a year older, congratulations, I didn’t die!

Anyway, it was a fairly good birthday. After about 4 hours of crazy busy work (I intended not to work at all yesterday, I just showed up for cake) I was told that I could go home at lunch and stay there. The cake (as a special comment to my friend and new LJ Buddy akvanecekAngela) was incredible. I almost felt bad taking a quarter of the thing home. I think Nur put it best when she said I was territorial about my food. I don’t deny it.

While we were home, heatherejcHeather said I could open my presents. She got me the last book in the series I’ve been reading, the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory soundtrack, and a new keychain multitool that I, unfortunately, hated as soon as I got it out of the package. To Heather’s defense, I loved it when it was in the package, in fact I pointed it out in the store and said “That’s the one I want” but as soon as I got it out of the blister pack and started trying to play with it, I realized it’s quality was very sub par. So I packed it back up as best I can, and got online and found the perfect keychain multitool. We went out on the town to find the exact gerber tool and found not a one. I then went home and promptly ordered it online. The nice thing is it was only $2 more than the one Heather bought for me. I don’t blame her, she did a great job.

I played some World of Warcraft as well, got my key to Dire Maul and did some mining. Now I just have to find out where in Dire Maul to start my major farming. We also rented Kung Fu Hustle (even though corwin75Steve was going to loan it to me today) and sat on the couch eating Blueberry Pie and watching REALLY cheesy chop saki.

I keep missing my brother’s phone call to wish me a happy birthday, but I know he’s thinking about me, he just needs to call at a better time.

oh, and I paid for my account for another year and found out that I can now have 100 userpics instead of just 50. I just don’t know what I’m going to do with myself.

So I’ve been doing a shit ton of nothing lately… and getting fat doing it. Its birthday season again around all my friends, so it’s cake day after cake day after cake day. Monday I get a chocolate chip cookie cake and I’m going to love it! I’m supposed to work out tonight, and while I feel fat and probably should, my stomach feels like a lead pancake and would probably make me grumpy in the end. Besides, I just don’t feel like it. Unfortunately, we can’t go next week at all either, so it’s now or never for the two weeks.

I’ve renewed my appreciation of Boom Boom Satellites only to find that I can’t get any of their music from any service I currently have access to. They’re not on iTunes or MusicMatch. I have pretty much moved away from CDs, so I don’t really want to invest in more plastic. Even if I decided to do so, their albums are all imports and cost $25-50. So frustrating. And of course there is nothing to be found on Torrent.

Tomorrow night is Movie Night, and as I announced two weeks ago, we’re watching Spinal Tap, so bring your extra drummer and come along. Beer is a must for this one because they do go to eleven and the are green.

I’ve been pretty lazy on WoW the past few days, but that’s how I play, and it keeps me from burning myself out. Heather’s got a baby shower this saturday, so I’ll probably waste away my day on WoW. Until then, the Netflix movies are starting to pile up.

I’ve gotten 8 of those laptops out of the office, as well as four of the iMacs. I’m digging a hole, and all the while Steve is watching movies and Craig is cleaning house (no bitterness – bastards).

Anyway, I should get back to building an iMac so I can get even more room in here. If only I could take one of them home, WoW would be kickass on one of those wide screen mofos.

It appears as though I’ve got a kind of theme going on here with my posts, so I thoughtI should atually type somthing to interrupt it.

I’ll be talking about various subjects in this post, so lets color code them, shall we? I’ll be ranting about UNT, Discussing World of Warcraft, and Highlighting this week’s movie night

I really am miffed about the loss of yet another tree around the Art Building, now granted, this one was pretty beat up in a couple of storms recently, and was probably a safety risk, but still. They’ve cut down three trees in the past year and haven’t planted a single replacement. Keep Denton Beautifu really does give away two tress to every resident (while supplies last) every fall. After two years I’ve run out of places to put them in my yard (except, well, where I put the one that died this past season) and thought “why not play Johhny Appleseed” and put a couple trees around campus. I’m sure UNT would rip them out as fast as I put them in, but it might be worth it just to see what happens at least.

I finally got into another raid last night on WoW. Tavis and Bridgit invited me into a UBRS raid, and while the only things I need in UBRS are fantastically rare drops, I really wanted to go on a raid so I went. It stared out kind of shaky and Leroy-ish, but things got smoother once I got there. We did have enough deaths in the raid that I officially dubbed myself “Dr. Rez.” Tonight, Tarkas and I are planning a Scholomance 5-man. I hope we pull it off, I haven’t done Scholo in a while. I also want to do Strat again, but we’ll see.

This week, it turns out, we will be watching Clue. That’s CLUE, not National Treasure, not Army of Darkness, and not The Man Who Knew Too Little. Clue. That is all.

So I’m starting to think there are a lot of bugs in the 1.6 patch of WoW. You can die and not be able to res – but apparently we knew about that one. Now it turns out that your guild page may or may not load or update. I’m now finding out that you can occasionally loose your characters (not permenantly, you just go to log in and it says “Character Not Found”). This is starting to get pretty annoying. I was having a good old time playing my Priest, but now it seems he doesn’t exist and he can’t res. Fun! Fun!

If you WoW, check out GroupButtons.

I’m thinking of replacing my second action bar (the one on the left) with an all personal GroupButtons bar. Too many good options! AutoUdate to new level, AutoScale to buff level or healing needed. Sheeit, this is good stuff!

Silver Hand is full? When was the last time that happened?

Well, as seems to be the most popular way to update journals, it’s Monday and I feel like writing about what I did this weekend.

Friday was pretty uneventful, but in a good way. Heather and I had a nice dinner, watched some movies and TV and I played a little WoW. Finally got my Horde character into the double digits and got to spend that first talent point. Also got absorbed into the new guild, so I am no longer a Crimson Eye, I’m now a Maleficient. I noticed that these guilds are a lot more active and effective and not just a social gathering. I need to figure out how to instill those ideas into the Silver Talons.

Saturday, we went to the Movie Tavern for spazzy444‘s birthday. We saw the Fantasic Four, and while Heather and I would probably have enjoyed Batman Begins a bit more, we still had a good time and the movie was pretty fun. I thought the food was fairly good and for $30 we got two tickets, an appetizer, two meals, two drinks and a dessert. I don’t think two people can go on a cheaper “dinner and a movie date” anywhere. zero_interrupt and I got this 82oz, self cooled tower of beer, too. It was a bit tough to pour up drinks in the dark (we could have left it up on the table/bar area which is dimly lit, but then we wouldnt’ have been able to see half the screen, so we put it on the floor) but it was really different to have beer in the theatre. It was $13 for whole 82 oz and we weren’t able to finish it during the movie. You can also get a 38oz mug of beer for $12 but that breaks down to $7 for the mug and $5 for the beer. The cool thing is, you can keep the mug and come back again and fill it up for $5 every time you see a movie. How cool is that? I’ll have to determine if Heather and I will be going with any kind of frequency before I invest my $7 though.

I had just enough time to get home, get my stuff, and head back out to go to Steve’s D&D game – which went well. We got to do some investigating, some killing, some more climbing (ugh) and made off with some pretty decent booty. Steve did, however, remember why he doesn’t run pre-written modules and next time we will be back in the City, following some original stories of death and intrigue in the city of towers.

Sunday I worked on my D&D setting. Yeah, you have to go pretty far back in my past journal entries to find the last time I said that. I think I’ve finally got myself a method that works for development. Its a bit more chaotic than my previous attempts, but at the same time more organized. I’m defintely further along than I ever have been before. Speaking of which, I have more to plan for the setting.
