… I think there is human girl-hair clogging up the chair wheels again…. burgle

Seriously I think the last time I sat at my set-up was in May … last year.
I’ve a case of RSI… its for example (as is no doubt the modern norm for a lot of people) really hurting to type, lol but this is the day to day aches I get doing my job anyway. I’m tired of avoiding the computer… I want back into gaming and social media and playing with applications as a part of my hobby not just as a part of my daily grind to earn eating moneys.

So this weekend past I revived my wow character. My new little dog looked at me glumly from her inside mat while I whiled away my time getting my bank under control and finding my action bar in the mess of out-dated addons. My fat-arsed cat went nuts as soon as I sat at the computer … apparently this period of human harassment was a great game he has been sorely missing: cords were pulled, fresh cat hair distributed, my hand chewed on >< spittle splattered up my monitor … somehow this tabby can fling spittle around like a hollywood-comedy-movie dog. Its pretty gross but on a tiny cute scale.

So things that are new to me… that I actually found (considering I got lost inside the garrison this is no small concern):

  • A whole new LFR raid teir – you peeps have been busy eh?
  • A shipyard – was this here in may? was I already spacey in may?
  • A whole jungle zone where you lot are all gearing the alts – read where I’ll be gearing the main /le-sigh
  • A pre-order for the next xpac – and that’s a bit of a wait isn’t it?
  • PVP stats are totally different – very interesting, when did that happen? Since I spent my small look see having my face rubbed into the ground by the horde I can’t guess at what your current BG of choice is ><
  • A new faction grind – lets be honest more than one, bring in the grind!
  • and my guild leader has discovered the power of warlords flight… i suspect some fel magics at play there 😮

I have high hopes that some time in the next month I can skill up  to be able to maneuver in game again without getting stuck and trapped on lamposts in my own garrison ><

In the meantime I’m just flexing my typing hands here … figuratively & literally. Nice to be back… hope to get my shaman on in this new chapter.

    Welcome back! I’ve had RSI as well (carpal tunnel to be exact) since September and it sucks so bad. So I know what you’ve been going through. I’m glad that you’re feeling better though.

    Our gaming-will is strong but the flesh is weak eh? 🙂 Many thanks! To be honest I really missed my little online community, its great to be back mingling even if I feel like a runner with a sore foot being included in the relay-races come raid time hee.
