By the way…

March 25, 2010 § Leave a comment

I thought I would mention a few things by way of playing ‘catch up’.

First, I have really slacked in reading my wow-blogs.  I opened my reader today and had over 200 entries to catch up on.  But I am going through them, one by one.  So even if I don’t comment on the blogs I usually comment on, rest assured I am reading your stuff.

Second, for all intents and purposes, Thistlefizz is retired.  This is due in large part to certain events that happened back in January, but it’s also related to the fact that I don’t have anyone on the Alliance side to play with anymore.  It’s highly likely that come Cataclysm I’ll bring him back out of retirement, but it may require a server transfer.

Third, I found a new guild, but it’s on the Horde side.  They are awesome.  More about them later.

And finally, because I have effectively benched Thistlefizz, I’m been playing my shaman a lot more.  Like, all the time.  I have plenty to say on this subject as well because I’ve really gotten into the Resto Shaman world.  I would almost go so far as to call Zulaijang my main.  Except for the fact that my heart will always truly reside with Thistlefizz.*  So don’t worry, I’m not going to change the name of this blog to “the cranky old troll”; partly because that just sounds weird and partly because I still hold out hope that eventually I will find another group of people for Thistlefizz to run with.

“[Insert clever sign off phrase here]”


*I actually haven’t been called ‘Fizz’ in quite a while.  Now I spend my time responding to ‘Zula’.  Also, I must admit that in addition to the server transfer, I have been toying with the idea of a temporary faction change for Thistlefizz.  One that would only last until Cataclysm–it would be a great way to rekindle my love of tanking and getting Fizz in to raids.  But then I start to over analyze things and think about the philosophical implications of changing him from a gnome to a tauren.  I don’t think I could really do it.  We’ll see.

Leave a reply here, but remember, be coherent!
