Thunderstorms are Made of Fail
A thunderstorm swept through my area last night and knocked out the power for three hours, which was just long enough to allow me to miss the invites and first hour of a raid. My guild understood; a couple other people had power outages and connection issues over it. I was at first unconcerned; I thought we were going to Hyjal. I really don't need too much out of Hyjal, as I don't have enough DKP to compete for tier, should it happen to drop.
Then I found out they were going to BT instead, and died a little inside. I need two things from BT! Shade of Akama is holding my [Kilt of Immortal Nature] hostage, while Bloodboil has the amazingly beautiful (and slightly disturbing) [Staff of Immaculate Recovery], also known as "Priest-on-a-Stick." The latter would have been the first piece of gear I would have actually been able to participate in a bidding war over; I was cursing the thunderstorm with every breath in my body.
Well, luckily for my sanity, neither dropped, though I felt bad that one of our other priests, who had graciously offered not to bid me up too much should the staff ever drop while we were togetehr, did not get his shot at the staff.
This morning, I got my fishing to 375! Score. Still no croc pet, but I can be patient. I should hope so, at least, since I was patient enough to level fishing without too much complaining!
I am also progressing slowly with a secret project. I will, unfortunately, have to wait until it's done to tell you about it, because two of my guildmembers actually read this blog, and I don't want to give the surprise away.
Which brings up the subject: Sharlet, a holy paladin in Sunder, has officially begun posting on his Paladin blog, Hammer Hurling. He is insanely knowledgeable about the Paladin class (and just about every other one), so I highly recommend checking him out.
