I've arrived at the Murtaugh Conclusion.


That's where I hit with the announcement / reveal of MoP.

I'm just curious, how old are you? Curious if I am/was truly too old for this shit.

It's really a no brainer for me this time around because I realized:

-PvP in this game is a dumpster fire that has somehow burned brightly for almost 10 years with not a single dev in sight even knowing how to use a fire extinguisher.
-Guild got murdered during the holidays with attendance and is basically on life support. It will more than likely die in the next 2 weeks because of myself and 2-3 others not wanting to bother with putting in 200+ wipes to kill the last 3 bosses and potentially dealing with six more months of Icecrown Dragon Siege when a gear reset will happen soon after anyway essentially rendering this time wasted basically the same way we essentially wasted all of December on Thok.
-I tried to convince myself raiding was worth it if I stopped playing my shaman and I ended up logging after Galakras because I just did not care.
-You can only level so many alts until you realize you're lying to yourself about how much fun you're actually having.

I basically transferred my hunter for essentially no reason especially with the free 90 in Warlords when in reality I should have saved my money and stopped having delusions of this guild actually caring and DOING instead of TALKING about it. I had planned on cancelling till the expansion when progression was over regardless but between replacing people and having Thok have to be a re-progression fight I just do not have it in me to care anymore.

Man that felt good to say.

I think I've finally broken a little bit of my writer's block. Started spewing into Word tonight, but frustration is that I auto-edit as I go, I can't stand the red/green squiggly lines of fuck-off.

Finally managed to recover from the holidays with everyone back home and raiding, so we were finally able to down heroic paragons the other night (after killing siegecrafter right before the holidays started..). Finally starting work on Garrosh :)

Don't know if this is a success or not, but my game time expired... I can't remember my account password... and I'm not really all that fussed about not being able to play.

Shot a handgun for the first time yesterday, it was fun.

Never shot a gun in my life, I can't help but wonder...

My turn: day 111 since I last played - and not a single care in the world :D
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

I've fired handguns at the "kids" summer activities when I was eligeble to go to that (up to 7th grade I think) - at the shooting range where you could enroll to keep doing it and such.
I've shired shotguns while taking my hunting license (which is sitll current even though I haven't shot a gun since I qualified, so I should not be allowed to actually go on a hunt before some serious practise and a gun of my own so I can get some ractise that makes sense)

Frustration about that; a shotgun costs a minor fortune. A Gun safe (which , apart from being a good idea, is mandatory) is affordable, but I don't actually have anywhere I can put it (and have it comply with requirements for 10 cm / 4" or penetrating bolts) without it also being in the way and a serious eye-sore.

Gone are the days when you'd just mount it on the wall, eh? :P

On the other hand, every time I tank Iron Juggernaut on my Paladin I wish I had Heroic Leap, Charge and Intervene :/

And whenever I tank on my Warrior I wish I had HoP and DS.

Odd, when I was at summer camps as a kid, we were able to shoot rifles/shotguns, but never hand guns.

Out of curiosity, where are you that you're required to have a safe?
