I don’t have a drinking problem. I do have a Brewfest problem.

I drink.  I get drunk.  I fall down.  No problem. I do have a problem with this year’s Brewfest.  Snooze & Booze for no Uuze Fest. Last year Msaker got on that racing ram put near every darn day and … Continue reading

Satisfied. A note to the casual.

Ah. Oh, there’s a few more things I need yet.  A belt.  The matching leggings for the arena gear.  Perhaps the chest.  I’ll get my new weapons in Northrend.  The beta has shown me there is a cat form staff … Continue reading

Fun in the WoW Beta.

WoW Beta Scam. If it’s from an Oxyhost address, it’s not real.

Remember that 2nd Beta key I told you about that I thought I’d just gotten?  Right on the heels of the first one? Well, I did not click on the link offered in the e-mail.  Hovering over it I now … Continue reading
