I know, the question on many readers lips.
No this has nothing to do with questionable Australian tourism ads, the model that starred in them, or the controversy surrounding her, it’s more of a Where in the world is Gnomeaggedon.
It’s not a simple question to answer, apart from single fatherhood, new-not-quite-waterproof-home-owning and I-have-to-do-what?-by-when?-how? worklife, I have kind of been everywhere… in Azeroth at least.
My newly rediscovered passion for PvP, combined with my determination to complete Loremaster (no matter how many chain quests and dailies I have to complete to open up those last few quests) is leaving me with little time for the greatest pleasure in my life… Blogging.
Anyway, here’s a short pictorial explanation of what I have been up too.
(Note, you know the only thing about this Gnome that is short is the Gnome… lot’s of screenshots incoming!)
Disclaimer: Yes, there might be a certain level of shirt tearing going on in this post…

Crossing the field of strife
(over and over again.. just like the Horde on the other side /wave)
Storming the beaches
Taking back the Strand
I’m either and Ancient Protector, or just and old man
I’ve been hitting the Horde where it hurts
Wondering why we don’t win some Battlegrounds
Sending gold-spam (WTF! How did this happen?)
Holidaying on the Isle
Dealing with fan mail
/sigh those Elders are such fans…
Getting better at PvP – as many kills as deaths???
Dealing with AFK
Perfecting my skills in a Flurry
Hunting for a toilet in the wilderness
Using the toilet in the wilderness
Starting my engine.
Recalling – If you play Alterac Valley and you are Exalted with the Stormpike Guard and you don’t have one of these.. Shame on you!
Getting better and better at PvP – More kills than deaths?
Enjoying the wildlife

More flag capping
One battle I held the flag for 10 minutes… what is wrong with the Horde?
Yes, yes, the Horde tried.. they failed…
Yay for me!
Building a hard earned thirst
“A hard earned thirst deserves and ice-cold beer”
Yep.. plenty of that…
Taking time to enjoy the view
Slowing people down
Getting caught out…
This is a Single Abstract Noun moment…
Here I am quietly loving bunnies by myself, when I get recognized!
The thing is that when Gnomeaggedon used that Goblin inter-dimensional-trans-relocating device he lost everything… titles, good, powers and his complete wardrobe…
But not my reputation!
You no take Panties!
Come on over and join in the fun with SAN… bring Megan and Jong with you!
Getting Kicked in the Wintergrasp
Some douchebag gets raid lead in WG and starts kicking people from the raid… (several WGs now… /sigh)
What douchebag? Douchebag = Kithin!
I is winning the bread (I’d prefer the gold (or Aussie dollars), but bread will do)
Getting better and better and better and better and better at PvP
Apparently I have a Mate!
Thanks for reading and dropping me a line mid-BG.. we were both a little busy at the time.
I suspect that Mate is a member of what I am affectionately calling my “new PvP guild”… it isn’t, but I will explain in a later post.
I am assembling an Army!
Err make that one…
Spoiling the Loot (It is so worth looting in AV.. or it was…)
Exploring the Barrens… felt like home… I wanted to end my epic Kalimdor adventures there… didn’t quite happen.
I mined the Isle of Conquest
I finished with a turtle…
Not a Battleground Turtle (Bloody Turtling Horde!)
You know how much I love my Polymorph: Turtle… well I gave a little back
(Yeah this was intentional.. I looked for a quest to finish the journey on)
I reconnected lost lovers, and
Was rewarded for doing so…
Only Outland and Northrend to go… still 300+ quests… /sigh

But I am so, so loyal!
Some would say perfect…
Getting better and better and better and better and better and better at PvP
You see that?
You see that?
NO DEATHS AGAIN!
I have been charging around so much that I needed the appropriate mount (I thought I got this years ago, long before achievements… apparently not).
I was slamming in Nagrand.
Then I cooked a dragon…
Just the way I like my Tauren steaks…
OK, this has taken longer than a normal post…
I have so much to share, but time is limited and I am wordy…
Gnomeaggedon is (still) HERE!
Ohh and thanks for the emails of concern, or questions that I will answer.. Everything is good and I will answer your questions either directly, in a post or a combination of both.
Gnomer and Out!
