Buffy staked

"Conceal me from the ghost you cast away."

Yesterday just sort of went...splot. It was that sort of day. Between trying to fight off a sinus infection, being depressed about this "cold spring," worrying about money, struggling with a bad bout of dreamsickness, and...well, you get the picture. Distraction. So, nothing was written. No work was done, and the day got a big ol' "L" ("L"="Lost"). I am aiming to do much, much better today.

If you've not yet looked at the current eBay auctions, please do so. Bid if you are so able, and inclined to do so. Also, we're really hoping that Emma, the Beltane Bunneh sells before Beltane. We fear her fiery wrath.

Also, the platypus and dodo agree this would be a fine time to subscribe to Sirenia Digest

Not much to say about yesterday that I didn't say in that first paragraph. There was some very good WoW last night. So often, I'm down on the game, for one reason or another. There's a lot to hate about WoW, no matter how addictive it might be. However, last night Suraa and Shaharrazad made their way through the sunken temple in the Pool of Tears (Swamp of Sorrows), to the temple of the troll god Atal'Hakkar. And it was gorgeous, and fun, and made up for a lot of the crap. Marvelous dragons. All very Skull Island. Everything was rendered beautifully, and, yeah, the dragons were magnificent. We're just now going back and doing some of the low-level dungeons. We'd have done them before now, if Blizzard hadn't designed the game to cram being social down the throats of its players. At Level 63, we were just able to make it through, even though most of the monsters were in the 40s and low 50s. There are some screencaps behind the cut, because what's the point of plumbing eldritch depths if you don't send postcards?

Meanwhile, we can all rest assured that Amazon is not homophobic, just incompetent. Um...yeah.

My thanks to hermione1fan for the new icon. Spooky found a T-shirt, months ago, "And then Buffy staked Edward. The End." But you can say so much more with pictures.
