A 2nd (1st actually) nomination

I didn’t see the tweet because my inbox is full of emails I hadn’t had time to read, but there was one a day or two ago alerting me to the fact that Yotaan and Fussypants had nominated me for a Liebster award.

I hate not answering and the questions I was sent are quite good so I’m going to answer them but I’m not going to add in the extra 11 facts or nominate other bloggers.

1)    In your opinion (not based on views), which article that you’ve written is your best? Ooh this is a tough one, I don’t think I have a best one really; most of my posts are just waffling on ones, though I do like the one about why there are Night Elves in my blood elfs storyline.
2)    You wake up in Azeroth as your main character. What do you do? Most likely my garrison missions, and then go fly a dragon.
3)    What motivates you to write? Wanting to share what I’ve been up to and I think things through better if they’re in writing.
4)    You can have one spell in real life that isn’t a mage spell.  Which one do you pick? Revive
5)    Best noob mistake? Thinking a cave was a dungeon
6)    If you could kill off one WoW character to bring back another WoW character, who would you kill and who would you bring back?Hmm I’m not sure who I’d kill off, there are a host of characters around that probably wouldn’t be missed, but I’d love to bring back Alleria and find out what she has been up to all the years lost in the nether somewhere.
7)    What was your first video game? The Settlers
8)    If a patch is released and no one is there to play it, do the forums QQ? Always
9)    If you didn’t play video games, you’d be…Knitting
10)     On a scale of 1-10, how much have you enjoyed WoD (1 being not at all and 10 being its the best thing since sliced bread)?  I’d say a 6. I can honestly say this is the first time since I started playing 5 years ago that I’m logging off earlier and finding other things to do besides wow time. I can’t put my finger on what it is. I loved levelling through WoD so much but now at 100, I’m very lacklusture about my playtime.
11)    What’s the best thing about blogging? The other bloggers!

Leibstered by Dragonray


Dragonray from Azerothian Life kindly nominated me to take part in this. Basically you answer 11 questions from the person that nominated you, share 11 facts about yourself and make 11 questions for 5 other bloggers to answers.

  1. If you could live anywhere in the world would it be where you are now, if not where? Denmark. Getting used to the temperatures would take some doing though.
  2. What do you order for your last meal, which can consist of any food you want? Butter Chicken, Saag Gosht, tons of Naan Bread and saffron rice and bucketfuls of Mango Lassi.
  3. Do you prefer chocolate, vanilla or strawberry? Strawberry
  4. You are stuck in a burning building, do you save your friend or the 1000 strangers? As much as it would kill me to have to make the decision, the 1000 strangers would probably be the choice I’d make. Hopefully I never ever have to be a situation like that.
  5. What do you do outside of Azeroth to relax. Bike riding is my number one favourite activity, knit, watch movies. I’ve been taking more and more time outside of Azeroth lately.
  6. If you could live in any area of the game where would it be?  I love Arathi Highlands so I’d kick everyone out of Stromgarde Keep and move in.
  7. What profession would you learn in real life from the game and why? Tailoring, I’d love to be able to make my own clothes; I have a sewing machine and can use it but the art of making clothes that are wearable still escapes me.
  8. Who would you want to meet that is currently alive and why?  Awful as it is, I can’t think of anyone living that I have a burning desire to meet.
  9. Is there anyone you have grown apart from that you regret? Yes, long story.
  10. What is one of your current goals for this year? Finish my honours thesis. I’m doing honors part time while I work full time; the thesis isn’t due until June 2016 but I want to have it done by Nov 2015 to hand in with the full time students.
  11. Are you excited about Blizzcon being announced? What news do you want to hear? Not really that excited to be honest. The last one I didn’t really find that interesting (especially compared ot the one where WoD was announced ) so  I don’t know if I’ll actually get a ticket this year.If  they were to announce the next expansion I would be excited.. but that would make WoD feel very short I think.

11 Random Facts about me

  1. I prefer drama or romantic genre movies over comedy
  2. I rlove running and really want to enter a 1/2 marathon but every time I start to consider it I find that I back off running.. something in the idea subconsciously scares me off.

  5. I have very curly hair that for years I didn’t know was curly and I’d envy ppl with ringlets then I found an amazing hairdresser who showed me how to handle my hair.
  6. I cannot pass up a dessert if it has both chocolate and mint in it.

  8. I am working on being able to say no to things I don’t want to do.. I tend to shy away from the idea of creating conflict and used to say yes even to things I didnt want to to do.
  9. I hope I own a horse one day before I pass on.
  10. I am a terrible procrastinater.
