Small pieces (of posts), loosely joined (into one post)

Not posting doesn't mean I don't love you guys, it just means I don't have a whole lot to say at the moment. Let's summarize, shall we?

Raiding

Progress in ICC continues apace; we steadily progress every week in 10-man, making it to either Valithria, Sindragosa, or the Lich King himself on night 1. Caffeine can easily field two 10-man teams during the week (truthfully, I bet we could do 3, but 2 is working for now), with my tank being able to attend one. My rogue has now poked his nose into ICC as well, showing up in an alt and "leftovers" run on Sunday night. Assassination is still fun - I have a weird love for daggers - but I think I need to keep toying with my spec some more. And the spreadsheets! Oh, how I love the spreadsheets. My raid leader pointed me at these when I was griping about my low DPS.

Anyway, ICC. ICC-10 is almost through the Lich King (it'll only be a week or two more til one of our teams gets him down, I figure), ICC-25 is working on stuff as well, though sadly I can't attend the 25-man raids most weeks due to the raids being on Friday and Saturday, which are designated for spending time with my girlfriend when she's not busy studying for the Praxis II. I'm signed up for this weekend's, though, so maybe I'll get Festergut's blood and finish off Shadow's Edge. That's right - after four weeks of buying absolutely nothing but the necessities, I have 25 Primordial Saronites. Well, four weeks of nothing but necessities, plus I bought several with Frost emblems, plus Thalois was nice enough to just give me one (thanks Thal!).

Honestly, there's not a lot more to say. I have been noticing an influx of new DK tanks, though, and I'm going to recommend you go to Pwnwear and check out the contest and forums - especially the forums! - there. It'll set you on the right track to redeeming our class-wide reputation again. :)

Guild

Still enjoying my tenure in Caffeine. I was asked to become an officer a week or so ago, and so I did. Huzzah! Looking forward to helping the guild move forward through Wrath and beyond. :) Also hoping our next tabard design has a muffin on it. If I win, you've all been warned.

Non-WoW

Yeah, that's right, I do non-WoW stuff. Sometimes I even blog about it. Sometimes I blog about it on other blogs. Surprise!

  • I've been playing a few games here and there, including 3D Dot Game Heroes and Super Street Fighter IV. I've come to the conclusion I really need to invest in a good fightstick for SSFIV.

  • I actually have two other blogs, sort of. If you need your daily fix of my non-WoW stuff, check out Midboss (which could be nearly anything) and iDevice (which is about my iPad, which is on the truck for delivery as I write this. Glee!). Oh, and I write - sometimes - for Polygamerous, which you should really check out. Mostly the Morning Quickies segment. I'm not on the podcast, though, but that's probably for the best because I don't talk much when I'm on podcasts unless I'm one-on-one, as anyone who heard me on the Twisted Nether roundtables can attest.

  • I'm also shopping for a couch. It doesn't get more exciting than that, loyal readers.
