Me and my fluffy brain clean forgot it was Tuesday (I'll blame this on the fact that I work on a New Zealand schedule and it's Wednesday there).

IMPORTANT REMINDER: Don't forget that this week is WoW's Love is in the Air event; make sure to participate if you're still working towards the [What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been] meta achievement, or even if you still need a Toxic Wasteling pet from the dungeon event, or a Swift Lovestrider mount for 270 Love Tokens! You can also try your luck with, oh, 9 max-level alts a day, every day of the event, if you're obsessed with dedicated to getting a Big Love Rocket (which I'm like, totally not... <.<)

EVEN MORE IMPORTANT NOTE: After February 18th, the Scroll of Resurrection will no longer be available, so if you want to get yourself a Spectral Gryphon or Wind Rider, you better be persuasive with your un-subbed friends! (Here is the existing rules/FAQ).

In other news, Blizzard have released another preview for Warlords of Draenor - an ArtCraft post regarding Garrisons! (I have linked to the WoWhead page, but you can scroll down to the blue post and click the linked images to see larger versions).

LOOK AT THIS ADORABLE TENT (first step of the Mage Tower):



So this week my question is:

On a scale of "one" to "writhing in anticipation", how excited / not excited are you for Warlords of Draenor, and why?

And as always, tell us what you've been up to IRL and in-game!

Honestly I'm a 1.

Going back in the lore doesn't make sense to me when we should be moving forward to Burning Legion. I read a good analogy that made me lol

"It would be like if Harry Potter and the half blood prince, now that we're 100% certain the return of Voldemort is inevitable, were about Draco Malfoy going back in time and creating the Iron Slitherins ... so then Harry Potter and friends had to go through the portal to the alternate dimension and then send an army of fanboys to take a shit on anybody who was like "WELL WAIT A MINUTE, WHAT ABOUT THE RETURN OF VOLDEMORT?"."

That pretty much sums it up for me. Also I hate Orc lore and I'm sick of Orcs being front and centre all the fucking time. They're already retconning the Draenei lore to make it 'fit'. Now they came to Draenor 200 years ago as opposed to thousands, removing their connections with the planet etc etc. Hate hate hate.

Plus no flying. My mount is a part of my character to me and I hate the whole no flying thing for so many reasons.

My baby priest finally dinged 90, woohoo! And IRL, I got a job! Woohoo! I healed MSV lfr, it was fun. I hope to work my way up to more current raids soon-ish.

Warlords of Draenor, hmmm. Haven't been keeping up with much about it. Looking forward to new models and new stuff to do, not super over the top excited though. So maybe a 4 or 5 on a scale of 1-OMG.

These go to 11. Draenei Eliina and Siiri killing orcs--'nuff said. ;) Barracks and character models are exciting, too.

In game, I have been working on Loremaster for Outland on my Proudmoore hunter. It's maddening trying to find the missing quests. My newest 90, warlock Peridota, did MSV with Jordy and Allu alts. Hm, can't recall if I did anything else.</p>

IRL, I went to an art festival festival Friday night with a friend and my daughter. Went to the model railroad museum another day. What else? Going to stitch and bitch with knitting buddies tonight. But the big news is...

I adopted a puppy!!!

I am an active volunteer and foster home for a dog rescue. A few weeks ago, my foster dog died from distemper (she was a young dog, and it's nearly 100% vaccine preventable--a real tragedy). I gave this sweet, sickly, scrawny dog much TLC for weeks, and it was heartbreaking to lose her. I decided if she lived, I'd adopt her (she would have had lingering neurological problems had she lived). My foster director told me to take as much of little time as I needed before getting another foster. I talked about it with my best friend that night and decided what I needed most was to stay busy, because I couldn't bear to see that empty spot on my sofa, and other dogs need help.

So the next day I went to pick up an 8-month-old puppy from the shelter. She had just gotten out of the cast she had worn for 2 months recovering from being run over by a car, but you'd never know it by the way she leaped around! She's such a pretty girl with a sweet temperament. My daughter and I fell hard for her. When I started calling her "mama's baby" I started thinking hard about adopting her. And a week and a half later here we are.

Cassie (or Princess Kissy Cassie, as my daughter calls her) is pure cutie. No idea which breeds are in her, but I suspect she's part billy goat after she managed to jump onto a ledge 5.5 feet off the ground. She's caramel colored and looks like she has thick dark brown eyeliner.

Kurai ran some LFR with Crunchy (wing 2, trying to get Galakras' DPS trinket), and she got a new belt from Ordos, but I'm not sure if it's an upgrade over my regular belt or not since the itemization is pretty bad for DPS (I'm using another one for tanking).

Lathere got some PvP gloves from a Celestials boss that were an upgrade over the 496 ones she was wearing, but I need to gem and enchant them still, as well as some of her other gear. But she is performing much better with the upgrades she's gotten recently, so yay.

Sionell picked up some new gear this week, so yay. :D I pugged a bunch of wings of Flex trying to get some upgrades, but it didn't work out. T_T

Rhyann got a new necklace from Ordos, which I'm guessing she won't replace until Warlords. :)

IRL, I had several days off from work since my dad went on vacation and I figured I would stay home rather than worry about transportation to/from work without a ride being available. I finished one book (The Rose and the Beast by Francesca Lia Block) which I had taken out from the library, and I enjoyed it a lot. :) I have two more library books to read (once which I need to finish by the day after tomorrow, and I haven't started it yet, whoops) as well as some other stuff that I'm reading, so hopefully I will be able to finish everything up in time. :D

I'm very excited for Warlords. :D I don't know about "writhing in anticipation" yet, since we don't have a lot of info XD but I am very excited for some new content and new character models and stuff, and garrisons sound neat. :D And I loved Burning Crusade, so it will be cool to go back to that kind of world. Also, I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED the sneak peak of the Alliance starting zone that we got to see at Blizzcon. *_* PRETTIEST PLACE.
