Last post of 2008

Sad aint it? This is the last post I will ever do in the year 2008. Only a few hours to go till the new year. And guess what I will be doing? Sleeping. I gotta work tomorrow at 730am.

Mcmanis seems to be struggling through level 68. Still there and at about 75 percent through. Hang in there little fella.

Check out the cool Homer Simpson slippers that I got. They are pretty comfortable and with the freezing weather we have been having, they keep my feet nice and toasty. Plus, its pretty dang funny too.

Mcmanis to level 68

Mcmanis is still truckin' through content. Just hit level 68 last night while questing in Nagrand. He did a few of the Nessingwary quests out there. I think he is pretty much done with Terokar forest for now. Gotta move on. Only got 2 levels to go to get to 70 and still have 3 regions he hasn't touched yet. I think I may head over to blades edge as well to see what it has to offer.

Anyway, irl. It is very cold here today again. We just got back from Santa Fe last night after spending a couple of nights at Moms. Had a great christmas. :)

New level, New gear

Questing in Terokar has paid off for Mcmanis. Just dinged level 67 and was able to get a load of new gear as you can tell. Thinking about finishing up a few more quests here before heading to Nagrand and Blades Edge. Getting pretty close to being able to handle Northrend. He went there at level 66 to look around. But the mobs there were still a bit much for him to handle.

Meanwhile, the weather in real life has been dismal to say the least. Very cold and windy today. Not a big fan of the wind. But its winter and its to be expected. Christmas is just around the corner and we are going up to Santa Fe to hang with the fam. I have a 4 day weekend coming up so I am looking forward to that. Just gotta get through today and tomorrow at work and then I am home free.

Winter veil

The feast of winter veil is upon us and Mcmanis is chugging along and is up to level 66 now. Still quite a few quests remaining in Terokar forest. Gonna finish those up and head to Nagrand next.

Poor milly!

I just love this picture of our dog Molly. It was taken when she was about 4 months old. She is a lot bigger now. I can't seem to remember her being this small. But I guess when you see your pets everyday, you don't notice them growing.

Mcmanis to level 65

Mcmanis jumped another level last night to 65. Getting close to 70 now. Very exciting stuff. Unless you don't like world of warcraft. Then its not so exciting.

The tree is up!

Put up the christmas tree the other day. Looks pretty good except for the cluster of lights at the top aren't working. I tried changing the bulbs but still no dice. Oh well. It still looks pretty good. This is its 3rd Christmas with us and its hanging in there despite having 4 cats. Will it survive the feline fury this year? Time will tell.

Levelin' again

Looks like Mcmanis is at it again. Up another level to 64. Only one skill available from the trainer though. Raptor Strike. Usually its like at least a few that you get. Not this time. Still hangin' out in Zangar. Might head over to Terokar for a bit to see what quests have in store for him there.

I have been trying to complete a set of armor that I have been buying on the auction house. Its the Fel Iron Chain set. Right now I have the head, chest and gloves. All I need is the bracers and I cant find them any were. I have been checking the auction house every few hours and nothing. Its not a drop. Its something that blacksmiths make. I even did some shout outs and no one responds. What do I have to do to get this piece of armor. pretty soon, Mcmanis is going to level some more and not even need it. Maybe I will log in now and check to see if its on the AH. I doubt it though.

Dizzy in Zangarmarsh

Thought I would drop a quick post about Mcmanis hitting level 63. Questing in Zangarmarsh and getting close to level 64. Seems to be going pretty smoothly except for the poor fps I have been getting here. Probably due to my laptop cheapness. Kinda depressing. I already have all my video settings turned all the way down. Oh well. You gotta make due with what you have I guess. :(

Another couple a levels

Mcmanis keeps on truckin' through the outlands and has reached level 62 now. Got some new gear courtesy of the auction house as well. I think it may be about time to head to Zangarmarsh to continue his questing adventures.


Finally got enough gold to get Mcmanis the epic skeletal horse. Purdy sweet eh? It cost a total of 560 gold. Now he can roam the countryside 40 percent faster than the regular horse. Next stop, flying mount at 70. See ya there.

Just got home after getting my thyroid biopsy.  Not too pleasant an experience to say the least.  I thought that it would be only one needle in and out.  No!  They stabbed me 6 times in all.  That's not including the 3 shots of the local anesthetic they gave me too.  The whole process went pretty quick.  Around 10 minutes.  But I don't think I would want to go through that again.

Not feeling too good today. I think I am sick although I am in denial. Hopefully it will pass quickly. I must have blown my nose a hundred times today. My nose won't stop running and I keep sneezing. Ahh, who am I kidding. I'm sick. :(
