I’d Like To Thank The Academy…

of Insanity for leading my feet astray

and giving me not a thought for the future

but somehow making the words flow however they may

whenever I sit and put finger to key

that keeps this going

and keeps me yapping

of all things to do with me.


I was nominated for the Honest Scrap Award by Three Separate Bloggers!

Here’s the rules:

oh my GOD! I had this post all FREAKING written up and wordpress SIGNED ME OUT AND I LOST IT ALL!!!!!! >:C I am SO PISSED.

So I’m not going to follow the rules, I’ll just post 10 honest things about myself and suffice to say all the blogs over THERE ->>> are fraking awesome.

  1. I am really pissed right now, my original ten things were great.
  2. I don’t even want to do this anymore because I had it all written out and now it’s gone.
  3. I wrote something about loosing my pen and then my plant making off with it that was all kinds of clever but WordPress ate it.
  4. Yes I’m still whining.
  5. Pandora still rocks
  6. I love totems
  7. Something deranged about Pungent Seal Whey and enslaved Druids.
  8. I have a lot of books, more than our local library. The original version of this was much wittier, I promise.
  9. I’m still pissed.
  10. I love my Mr Tigerfeet.

Now, If I can get over being pissed I’ll try to come back to this and attempt to re-create my original witiness.

Sorry for the cop-out 😦

WOW! Ok, the BACK button is my new favorite thing EVAR! Here’s the original post in all of its glory 😀

See that right there? Yeah, my mood just changed THAT fast. See number 10 above, he has to put up with me.

Here’s the rules:

  1. When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to the said person so everyone knows she/he is real.
  2. Choose a minimum of seven (7) blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have seven friends. Show the seven random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with Honest Weblog. Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.
  3. List at least ten (10) honest things about yourself. Then pass it on!

And so, in true SAC bas-akward style, here’s startin’ with number 3!

  1. I love attention, but often find myself confused and lost about what to do or how to act once I get said attention.
  2. I’m really looking forward to payday on Friday because Mr Tigerfeet and I will be purchasing season 5 of DBZ. (Will Vegeta ever stop being an ass to his son? When is the next World Martial Arts Tournament? When does Gohan learn to go Supersaiyan? Nailbiting suspense!)
  3. On the WoW-side of things, my new-found love of totems borders on the inappropriate.
  4. I JUST went to the supply cabinet for a new pen and I can’t for the life of me remember where I put it.
  5. Ok, I found the pen, apparently my plant tried to make off with it.
  6. I sometimes often panic, though never during things like tornadoes.
  7. I have more books in my personal library than our town has in its. This both says that I live in a REALLY fraking small town and that I have an ass-ton of books.
  8. I’m also paranoid.
  9. I love dandelions, especially when pan-fried in a garlic batter.
  10. I never went to Howling Fjord and never saw the seals there. As such, during my first five levels into Northrend I was convinced that Pungent Seal Whey was actually the product of enslaved Druids forced into seal form and milked daily by the nefarious Tuskarr.

Well THAT was fun. Now you all know how deranged I really am 😀

Shhhh, crazy people have more fun!

Anyhoo, now I have to pick seven blogs that I think are absolutely brilliant. Don’t feel obligated to carry this on (especially since I’ll be giving some tag-backs), but I’m all for spreading the love, and those who tagged me had such wonderful things to say!

  1. Binary Colors – I’ve got a lot of respect for someone who can tell it like it is and is unafraid to be harsh when need-be. Brutal Honesty ftw.
  2. Artisan Level – she totally tagged me, but I love her blog too. It’s probably something to do with my never-realised childhood dream of becoming a scientist, but she’s got a lot of awesome articles fo-sho’!
  3. Fel Fire – she ALSO tagged me for this, and I only found her blog after she tagged me but I’ve been loving it something awful. Witty, clever and all that jazz.
  4. The Twisted Nether Blogcast – I love listening to it during work, I love the little boss voice-overs in there, and I yearn for a chance to natter on about stupid stuff, which is probably why it’s best that I don’t.
  5. Holy Deug – I’ve got a thing for enjoying self-important blogs that take a tongue-in-cheek attitude towards their own importance. He’s already gotten this award but that doesn’t mean I can’t say I like him too!
  6. Leafshine : Lust for Flower – Hai Thar Buddeh from across the pond! He won’t tell you how to gem your new tier, or remind you that if you’re not using Barkskin you’re doin’ it wrong, or much of anything really in the guide/theorycrafting department. What he will give you are short little snippets of what he’s up to as an extreme casual and remind all of us that yes, there is life outside of WoW and there’s nothing wrong with taking time to enjoy it.
  7. Etaiu’s Leatherbelly Tank Blog – Very new blog, and as it’s jam-packed with infoz and theorycrafting it tends to be a little dry. In fact Mr Tigerfeet complained at length when I was watching his intro to bear tanking video (apparently he was getting flash-backs from junior high science class) But that’s what is beautiful about it. He takes a very bare-bones approach, giving you the info that you need in a very easy and accessible manner. Plus, who can’t love the Flying Bear Technique?

Once I got rolling 10 honest things about myself just weren’t enough, just as 7 bloggers that I think are brilliant aren’t enough. My daddy always told me to surround myself with people that I look up to, and that by association I will become more like I want to be.

It’s the same for the blogs I read. They’re all wonderful in their own ways and it’s nigh impossible to pick only seven.

  1. Love for totems, eh? That’s not as bad as my obsession for my troll fire mage, trust me.

    I might actually level my shaman next, maybe. But I’m overwhelmed by the totems already and she’s only level 31. >.>

    • April 1st, 2009

    I picked up my shaman just shy of the 30s, I think she was in the late 20s. Low enough for me to whine at Mr Tigerfeet that he hadn’t at least gotten her mount but not so low that I wasn’t sporting a mount pretty quickly.

    Get a totem addon. I use Totem Timers, there might be better ones. Sometimes it’s a little buggy and it takes a bit of fiddling to get it just the way you want but after running around with it for a while I will never EVER play a shaman without something to help me manage my totems.

    I’ll try to take a screenshot sometime of my interface just so I can show what I’ve got an where. I’m addicted to having all the information I need as close to the center as possible.
