Tagged in a Blog Challenge

Looks like Maiara needed a bit of help being raised from blog death, so she has called upon me and several other bloggers to join hands and invoke the Warcraft Screenshots Folder Gods, to drag her back from limbo.

I have no problem with this, and see I am in good company (especially when it comes to the quality of screen shots, and a sense of fun).

However I do have a problem with the requirements of the challenge.

1. Go into your image folder

Well, not this part… I have heaps of images…

2. Open the sixth sub-folder and choose the sixth image.

This is where it falls apart.  Funnily enough, the first thought I had was:

How does she expect me to find the 6th folder… I am a Gnome, with only 4 fingers!

Then I opened my screenshot folder, and sure enough, I didn’t have 6 folders… I only had 3, so I was saved from using my other hand.

I did have 6+ images in the folder though, so freeing up both hands, I counted to six… and what image should I find… (more…)

Joining the Dots

This was meant to be an awesome post… still will be when I rewrite it.

Note to self (and anyone else that blogs on iPhone using WordPress software):

Save often…earlier rather than later…

I was 99% of the way through a post when my wife rang…

WordPress software said it had recovered the post… and I could see all the text, but when saved, I was back to nothing.

Oh well, stay tuned for Joining the Dots part 2.

Ohhh and I have found the perfect, and I mean perfect screen shot for my challenge…

Gnomer and Out!

I Pity the Love Fool


I give up, well I gave up anyway.

Love is in the air was my breaking point, but I have felt similar levels of frustration with other events.


I pity the no-love fool

Events such as this can only be completed and the final achievement gained if you:

  • Are desperate and Dateless
  • Are married in-game
  • You can drop by the PC at the very least every hour on the hour (which ignores the additional 20 minutes each hour required to hit up NPCs)

If you are married in real life (or the equivalent), you are screwed. While in RL this may be a good thing, in-WoW, this is a bad thing.

There once was a gnome…


There once was a Mage from Gnomeregan,
Who grew his green beard so very long.
Insanely in love with fire,
He knew he could never retire.
So into your raid please take him along!

Gnomer and Out!

New WoW storage spaces

edit: Well, it would appear that there is value in prewritting posts, then continually bumping them for other posts.  Everytime I do this, before the scheduled date a Blue Post will come out stating that they are addressing the issue.  So I guess a lot of this will appear like old news, but I assure you it wasn’t when I wrote it.  Now to go off and write some posts about Gnome racial engineering use… which I will schedule and then keep bumping.

So we have our backpacks, keyrings, achievements, pet storage, stables for our mounts, bank and guild vaults.

But as always, this little green haired gnome is not satisfied.

No, I want more! (more…)

I hate escort quests

While attempting to do Escape from Winterfin caverns, I realized the real reason I hate escort quests.

Well, for those occasions where you don’t get enough funnies in your home realm’s chat, or for when Megan runs out of fuel for her New Rules series, then head over to WoWBash.

Lots of nice screen captures, which will have you crawling around under your chair in hysterics…
Here’s a sample…

And that was post 300


Yesterday I clocked up 1,000 comments (remember when you fought so hard to get 1,000 +spell damage in TBC), this morning I knocked up 300 posts (remember when you fought so hard to get 300 +spell damage in Vanilla).

Thanks to all of you that read the blog, especially to those of you that subscribe multiple times via feedreaders so it makes me feel my audience is sooo much bigger.

Just in case you missed it yesterday (as things got pushed down the page) in my frenzy of posts while I watched the WordPress dashboard tick over, check out the Valentines post… especially if you are a lonely heart Gnome.

Also, the Mage disguise post has just dropped a little further down the page due to this pointless post… so have a read if you haven’t as yet.

More Mage Disguises

SpicyTunas has been bringing us up to speed with a couple of transformations that take your Mage from being 1 in 11,000,000 to something a little different.

We have seen Dwarf Mages and Walrus Mages.

Well I am going to introduce you to two more. (more…)

A Gnome of loose morals

I might not be an angel after all…


OK, OK, OK.. I was banging on about the horrendous immoral quests in WoLK the other day, but I fear that Euripedes infiltrated my psyche, cause this week I found myself doing all sort of evil deeds… for no better reason that I was helping out my Gnome colleagues. (more…)
