I'm a Nerd

So, I just got back from standing in line at the Sunnyvale Fry's to get a copy of the new expansion pack for World of Warcraft. My fingers are so numb it's hard to type.

Neutral Good Elf Ranger Mage

http://www.zinious.com/dnd.php I Am A: Neutral Good Elf Ranger Mage

Alignment:
Neutral Good characters believe in the power of good above all else. They will work to make the world a better place, and will do whatever is necessary to bring that about, whether it goes for or against whatever is considered 'normal'.

Race:
Elves are the eldest of all races, although they are generally a bit smaller than humans. They are generally well-cultured, artistic, easy-going, and because of their long lives, unconcerned with day-to-day activities that other races frequently concern themselves with. Elves are, effectively, immortal, although they can be killed. After a thousand years or so, they simply pass on to the next plane of existance.

Primary Class:
Rangers are the defenders of nature and the elements. They are in tune with the Earth, and work to keep it safe and healthy.

Secondary Class:
Mages harness the magical energies for their own use. Spells, spell books, and long hours in the library are their loves. While often not physically strong, their mental talents can make up for this.

Gaming Addiction

So I spent 50 hours straight getting my archer from level 50 to level 80 so I could catch up to my friends. This was so that when they came back to Asheron's Call after this week of Worlds of Warcraft Stress Test Beta, I would be high enough level to hang out with them and go on some of the more high level quests. I am so burnt out on AC right now. And I realized the flaw in my logic. I'm spending all this effort so I can play with my friends... Why not just PLAY WITH MY FRIENDS. WoW is awesome. So visually and aurally stunning. I had just upgraded my sound card and gotten a 6.1 speaker set and it's paying off. This game is a lot like AC2 but it kicks even more ass. Plus I get to play with my friends! =)

Friends don't let friends LARP

A friend wanted to know how bad LARPing is, so I brought it up in a gaming chatroom I hang out in: [10:46:07] <Kieron> So, if I really like this girl, should I tell her all my dirtly little secrets before things get too serious? [10:46:25] <Kieron> I'm afraid that when she finds out that I have LARP'd she'll never talk to me again. [10:47:30] <Bats> never ever ever ever ever ever ever mentioned that you've LARP'd, to anybody. [10:47:41] <Bats> at as matter of fact, pretend you never said it to this room. [10:48:25] <Bats> on your death bed, when you are about to croak, and she's there with you, then you go "oh hey, when I was young, I did the most vile thing I could think of, I LARP'd" *croak* [10:58:20] <Qlop> I don't tell girls I play video games. Larp'ing is like 8 miles deeper into the nerd forest than video games are.

Funny Conversation

I had just accidently cast Portal Recall instead of my intended spell: Kieron says, "I just pulled a Rita" Mongoose Dog says, "you broke a guys heart and made him cry for years to come?" I guess you had to be there.

4x4 At The Pismo Dunes

Went out today with my roommate and a friend to the Pismo Dunes. This was my first dune excursion. I had a blast. I can't wait to get a Wrangler. I was sort of wavering on still dreaming of owning a Jeep someday, but that dream is back in full force. The pictures are here.
