What a Long Strang Trip it’s Been!

October 30, 2009 § 1 Comment

Today I finally earned the achievement “What A Long Strange Trip It’s Been”!  I had picked up the helm and sinister squashling a couple days ago, but hadn’t finished the achievement “Check Your Head”.  I still had to put a pumpkin on the head of a Draenei, and wanted to wait until people in my guild were actually online.  But since I don’t seem to have been online at the same time as them recently I decided I was tired of waiting.  I wanted my proto-drake!  So I headed to Dalaran and walked around a bit, searching for just the right Draenei.  I found one, a paladin named Lewtybewts.  I really got a kick out of her name, and recognized her as one of the people I had run the Headless Horseman with.  So I snuck up behind her and BAM!

Thistlefizz has earned the achievement [Check Your Head]!
Thistlefizz has earned the achievement [Hallowed Be Thy Name]!
Thistlefizz has earned the achievement [What A Long Strange Trip It’s Been]!

It was very exciting, and she was a good sport about humoring me and got excited about the cool new mount.  And, I promised her screen shots, so here they are:

Achieved!

Three Achievements at once!

 

ProtoDrake

Look how pretty!

 

I’m really excited to finally be riding a proto-drake!  I’ve been trying for that dang bronze one in Culling of Stratholme…but we all know how well that’s been going.  So a very special thanks to Lewtybewts for being a good sport and humoring me, and for helping me wrap up a years worth of work and earn my sexy Violet Proto Drake!

 

As a side note, you may have noticed in my first creen shot that I’m tracking my Loremaster of Kalimdor Achievement.  As of this posting, I only need 48 more quests and then it’s on to Icecrown to finish off The Loremaster!
