VI

I usually don’t participate in memes, but this one brought a smile to my face.  (And since I’m Undead, that’s a rather painful experience in and of itself.  I almost have to do it now, if only to appease that dull ache in the empty space where my jaw used to be.)

The sixth screen shot in my sixth folder iiiiiiiis …

… Concrete and Tyroge!

The boys decided to bounce the Orgrimmar auction house one lazy Saturday afternoon.  Maybe it was one of those “had to be there” moments, but I found the entire thing hilarious — especially when completely random people decided to play along.  (And this on a PvP server that tends to regard roleplayers as somewhere above cave mold and below a Disgusting Oozling on the evolutionary tree …)

Take that little Orc, for example.  We assumed from his uniform that he was just another banker, but he insinuated himself between Concrete (who was between tanking jobs at the time, the poor cow) and Tyroge, and took his self-appointed role as pest control very seriously.

He eventually wandered off to do his own thing, and business got a little hectic. As you can see, at one point, the boys even had a line.

There were also the usual “undesirables” to be dealt with, including this rather fierce-looking Druid.

Ironically, he later joined my guild — and was /gkicked after he decided our Code of Conduct was too “restrictive,” and rebelled against by posting an impassioned defense of the use of the word “rape” (in a gaming context; i.e., “the Alliance absolutely raped us in Arathi Basin”) on our guild forum.  I know this doesn’t bother most people, but we repeatedly asked him not to use it, as there was a woman in our guild at the time who had issues with PTSD related to a sexual assault.  Apparently, his mistook the request for compassion as an attempt at censorship …

But that’s a subject for another post.  For now, suffice it to say I did a mental double-take when I dug this screenshot out of the black depths of my harddrive and realized that I knew this druid.

On a lighter note—

—there’s one in every capital city.  And several in Darnassus.

/facepalm

In keeping with the spirit of six, I’m supposed to tag six bloggers to share the sixth screen shot in the sixth folder in their Images file.  But I’m the new kid on the block, so I’m not really comfortable with that yet.  I’m still kind of amazed that people are actually reading this drivel; I don’t want to scare them away by giving them {gasp} homework!

But if you haven’t done this one yet, and want to, by all means … consider yourself tagged.

    Drivel? Nope. These moments are what we will remember most when it is all long gone. Nostalgia ftw.

    By “drivel” you mean “brilliant mix of awesome prose and WoW tips that cannot be found anywhere else in quite this form”? Right?

    I got this “homework” from Phaelia (Resto4life)…. so will post something tonight, I guess.
