Yesterday, I finally got to play again and managed to get my reputation to Revered with the Order of the Cloud Serpents. This meant, of course, I did the sky race for the first time. Before hand you're given a couple of quests showing you the route and then going through collecting the ten checkpoints. Despite this, I still had trouble following the route and missed a checkpoint, twice. Yes, pretty much part for the course for me when it comes to figuring things out, and of course the kiddo had come to see my new dragon and see what all the fuss was about. After turning in the last quest, I learned I'd actually get to compete in the race that day and this happened:

JADE: (Half-muttered.) "I'm so going to lose."
KIDDO: (Waits until I hit "Accept" and then runs out of the room.)
JADE: "Where are you going? I thought you wanted to see the race."
KIDDO: (Clearly distressed.) "I can't watch you lose!"
JADE: "...are you crying?"
KIDDO: (Beat. Sniff.) "No, I just don't want to watch you lose!"
JADE: (Suddenly feels immense guilt for her self-deprecation, even if it wasn't completely serious.)

I convinced him to come back into the room after assuring him I wasn't going to lose, that I just might come in second or third since it was my first time. Having said that, of course I earned the How to Strain Your Dragon achievement.

My child, I tell you, has no confidence in my mad WoW skills.

Last week, Sam finally purchased an HDMI cable so we can fully enjoy the beauty that is Hi-Definition on our flat screen TV and his PS3. Yesterday, he decided he wanted to play Skyrim as now we can finally read the text on the screen and see the compass without straining our eyes and inducing headaches. I stayed long enough to see how gorgeous the game was in 1080dpi, and then I headed back to spend a little time on WoW.

Here's what I heard a few minutes later:

TV: "FUS RO DAH!"
Sam: "...whoops."
Jade: *begins giggling uncontrollably*

Sam explained later he was sneaking around and had his bow out to try and kill a guard or two stealthily. He remembered that you can zoom in to help aim, but he couldn't remember which button. And thus I heard the dragon shout followed by the sound of Sam's character getting slaughtered by everything in the cave.

No word yet as to whether anyone took an arrow to the knee. Meanwhile, I'm running around Renaissance Italy collecting feathers and assassinating random folks in Assassin's Creed II. This game is even more beautiful than I remember.

Apparently, I belong to the Horde.

See, after quitting my Alliance guild, I had trouble finding reasons to play my hunter. I wanted to play a hunter, but I didn't want to go Alliance side to play him. So, after talking it over with my RP partner, we decided to faction change.

My first night as a troll, my friend and I ran Sethekk Halls, and we got to Anzu she told me, "Take it."



Thus began my luckiest four nights in WoW to date. )

And I have a standing deal with my friend to keep her company on as many runs of Sethekk and Magister's Terrace as it takes to get her the two mounts. It's the least I can do for her as she's stuck by me through guild drama, a faction change that altered our paired characters, and lets me vent to her quite a bit. Maybe this lucky streak of mine will rub off on her now.

Alternate title for this post: "No Kael'Thas, you can't have your balls back."



So because I am incapable of reading the in-game calendar and ascertaining the proper time for raid, I missed out on Dragon Soul this afternoon. I think I'm going to be stuck pugging until MoP gets here and everyone's getting leveled and geared for the new content. However, with the free time tonight, I tried out Affliction Spec, and I have to say...I might be raiding in Affliction spec this expansion. And instead of the soul shards floating about my head, I used Glyph of Verdant Spheres to make them green balls.

At least until Warlocks get some loving attention from the nerf bat (because I know it's coming).

It's interesting not using a pet. I took Grimoire of Sacrifice, which means every twenty minutes I summon a demon and kill it to boost my spell power for twenty minutes. Well, boost certain Affliction-spec related spells. It's awesome.

Yo dog, we heard you like stag mounts, so we put a stag on your stag so you can mount while you mount and another mount on your mount, and another...


(Click on the image to see more screenshots.)


They're calling it "Stagstacking." Not sure what server this was on, but I am so wishing I had a druid right now.
jadedmusings: (ATLA - Aang c'mon!)
Real-life dinner conversation:

Me: "So, yeah, in Mists of Pandaria, druids will get a new form. They can turn into a stag and act as a mount for another person."
Sam: "That sounds rather silly, but now that you tell me this I feel compelled to gather a large group of druids to stampede through a city yelling, 'Stag party!!!'"
Me: "...I'm not letting you near my account. Ever."

The scary thing is, I know he was completely serious. Fellow WoW players, I'm keeping this element out of your gaming experience. You're welcome.

See, if my boyfriend played WoW instead of that other MMO, he'd be far more sympathetic and understand the aggravation of getting geared and re-learning how to play four different classes.

Someone makes a post on the Blizz forums (specifically, Wyrmrest Accord's server forums) that says, "Blood Elves, tell me your taint stories," and you know they're probably talking about the fel corruptions, but you're still staring at your computer screen giggle-snorting.

(No, I'm not making this up. Also, it looks like an excuse for someone to talk about how their special blood elves don't have any fel taint at all. Granted, this is one area where Blizz's lore is inconsistent or lacking altogether, but there is at least a blue post saying the green eyes are the result of fel corruption like the orcs' green skin and will take time to go away.)

Instead I want to brag about myself. Who's the warlock doing 45k DPS on 10-Man Yor'sahj tonight?

That's right, this warlock.



It's nice to know I can do some things right, even if it is just a video game.

Actually happened tonight during an instance.

Tank: "Man, I can't believe that's the last Batman. I'm sad."
Me: "Just wait ten years, they'll reboot it. I still remember when Michael Keaton was Batman."
Tank: "...who?"
Me: "..."
DPS: "How old are you?"
Tank: "Fifteen."
Me: "God, I'm old."

If you need me, I'll be in my front yard shaking my cane at anyone who comes near it.

So, I'm writing, or at least trying to. I've been wanting to write since...well, I always want to write, but I've been letting real life wear me down. I'm fighting real life right now and doing my best to write something, even if it's naughty slash involving an RP character of mine.

And then today, I encountered an issue with my laptop's keyboard.



You think I should call tech support about this?

One more gratuitous fluffiness under here. )

Dear Death Knight staging an RP fight in Stormwind last night,

Yes, by virtue of being both undead and a Death Knight, you are correct in stating that your character doesn't feel pain quite like the living do. Furthermore, as a Death Knight you feed off pain...pain you cause in others. However, you do still feel pain, particularly if there is large enough physical trauma. Also, not feeling pain and being undead does not mean you are invincible. (In fact, I'm having a hard time thinking of anything in Azeroth that is invincible. Immortal, yes. Very hard to kill, yes. But not invincible and incapable of dying. The old gods are kept alive because killing them would mean the end of the world since those crafty Lovecraftian bastards found a way to make their existence somehow tied to Azeroth.)

Anyway, being impaled through your torso qualifies both as significant physical trauma that, even to a Death Knight, registers as more than a tickle on the scale of sensation. Furthermore, given that the undead need a functioning spinal cord in order to, at the very least, shamble and moan about brains, being impaled through the torso by anything insinuates there'd be some possible damage to a person's spine. Being impaled means you are not going to immediately jump back up in an acrobatic fashion and swing around your almost-as-tall-as-you-are sword like it was a feather.

Fine, we have magic and we have armor and we can combine the two to make people ridiculously powerful and hard to injure. However, you played out being impaled, so theoretically you ought to have been hampered just a little. So, please, don't complain when other witnesses present point out you are, in fact, god moding to a severe degree. And don't act so surprised the mage you were fighting walked away and called it quits to your fight.

We're just trying to help you,

The player of the facepalming draenei paladin.


Dear Mage,

I know, I know, you had to suffer at the hands of the aforementioned Death Knight. I'm sincerely sorry. However, if you want to start IC RP fights, how about realizing that walking into the Cathedral in Stormwind to make disparaging remarks about how "pathetic" the Light is and spitting on the floor in front of a (praying) paladin and several other priests and paladins (to say nothing of the countless NPCs) is more than likely going to get you put on people's ignore list instead of encouraging people to want to duke it out with you. Or, at least, quality roleplayers unlike the Death Knight you had the misfortune of dealing with.

To quote my toon: "Truly, I am perplexed by your behavior and wonder what it is you hope to accomplish."

Hoping you got some balm to sooth that butthurt,

Ari's player


Dear Assorted RPers in Stormwind on WrA last night,

LOL WUT?

Love,

Me

A few days ago, the most awesome picture of Hilary Clinton ever started circulating around the internet.



That is one bad ass Secretary of State right there. Look at how many fucks she gives. The number of the fucks she gives? None. If she had a bottle of water, she'd be giving negative fucks. And you know what? She just got your text and not only is she unimpressed, she's tired of your bullshit and is about to ruin your day. After she's done with that, she's going to deliver one spectacular motherfucking speech about women's rights that will make you weep with unabashed joy. Oh, and she'll probably save the world too because she's Hilary Fucking Clinton.

Ahem. Anyway, I am pleased to announce I have discovered a new meme and tumblr centered around that photo. Go, read, and laugh your ass off.

There is a Tumblr dedicated to posting screenshots of people on Facebook who don't realize The Onion is a satirical publication. No, really. It is both sad and hilarious at the same time.

George Lucas Says Han Never Shot First, You Were Just Confused

As it turns out, those who saw that controversial edit as a fundamental betrayal of the character—changing Han Solo from a shrewd, streetwise bad-ass to a guy who got really lucky that Greedo is such a lousy shot; rendering his evolution from amoral antihero to full-blown hero less meaningful, etc. —well, they were just confused all along, because Lucas now says Han never shot first:
The controversy over who shot first, Greedo or Han Solo, in Episode IV, what I did was try to clean up the confusion, but obviously it upset people because they wanted Solo to be a cold-blooded killer, but he actually isn’t. It had been done in all close-ups and it was confusing about who did what to whom. I put a little wider shot in there that made it clear that Greedo is the one who shot first, but everyone wanted to think that Han shot first, because they wanted to think that he actually just gunned him down.



I'm not going to live in a world where Han didn't shoot first, and you can't make me. LALALALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU, GEORGE

I nearly died of laughter today, and here's why. To set the scene, the kiddo came home from school and I looked through his binder to see what homework was, if there was anything extra we needed to do, etc. He came over to stand next to me while I was looking over one sheet (just a sheet he did in school, nothing really important), and here's what happened:

* Jade looks over worksheet, not suspecting anything.

Kiddo: "Flip it over." *reaches over and flips sheet.*

* Jade dies of laughter.

Suddenly! A wild Sam appears! Unable to speak through her tears of laughter, Jade hands the sheet over to Sam, who promptly sputters and gives Kiddo a hug.

What I found on the back. WARNING: Do not drink anything while reading the rest. )

This morning, Twitter was all abuzz (not really) with the news that Kelly Clarkson has decided to back Ron Paul for president. I'll pause so you can finish rolling over with laughter.

Done? Good.

My modus operandi when it comes to Twitter is simple. I see stupid shit, I mock it. I mock misogynists, jerks, idiots, and Ron Paul supporters (particularly after reading some of Ron Paul's newsletters--there's a Twitter account for that too). Naturally, Kelly Clarkson's endorsement of Ron Paul fit neatly into the category of, "Funny, light political stupidity I can mock." And really, given how "great" the pre-election season has been, I think we have to laugh. Of course, somebody on Twitter apparently took umbridge to my opinion that Kelly Clarkson's decision to back Ron Paul was mock worthy.

@jadedinsc: Kelly Clarkson is endorsing Ron Paul for president. Truly, Clarkson is one of the greatest political minds of our century. In Opposite Land.

@jad991: @jadedinsc and your opinion matters even less so what does that mean?

Usually I ingore people who A) I don't follow back, B) are looking to start shit, and C) have no icon (usually indicates a spammer, but not always), but for some reason this tweet turned my snark machine.

@jadedisnc: .@jad991 Your point? I can still mock the shit out of an unqualified celebrity endorsing a homophobic bigoted shithead for President.

@jadedinsc: Hey, if winning American Idol doesn't qualify you to endorse a political candidate, nothing will.

@jadedisnc: And what good is twitter if I can't use my PERSONAL twitter for expressing my own thoughts? I see funny shit, I mock it.

@jadedinsc: Onoz, some non-celebrity has Opinions About Things(TM) on the Internets! We better tell her (me) that she doesn't matter!

@jadedisnc: Silly me for thinking my voice (or text in this case) was there to be used to express myself. Guess I better go get famous first.

@jadedinsc: Okay, so now that some on Twitter has put me in my place (Bwhahahaha!), I'm going to go take a nap since I have not slept much this week.

@gypsyhooker: @jadedinsc Fuck the uptight fuckers. Social media was made for mocking stupid people.

@jadedinsc: @gypsyhooker Yeah, telling people they're insignificant and stupid is for relatives on Facebook.

@jadedinsc: For the record, I don't tell my relatives they're stupid and insignificant on Facebook. That'd require adding them first.

Oh, Twitter, you make it so easy to get involved in shenanigans. Anyway, I wasn't lying when I said I haven't had much sleep this week. 'Tis true. We were up at dawn pretty much so we could run Mom to the bus station so she could go back to SC. The kiddo cried when she got on the bus and I bet Mom cried too and will cry tonight when she calls me.

But now I'm going to go join Sam for a nap.
