posh new keyboard
i has a new keyboard! it's one of them ergonomic ones with the silent keys. it's a bit sad to be so excited over a keyboard, but i am. hehe.

college is working out really well still. it's loads of fun. but really hard work. on tuesday's practical we were just sectioning hair one four sections and one nine sections. that was fairly easy. nine sections was easiest for me because the lines were shorter and therefor easier to get straight. wednesday's practical was a lot of fun because we tried out first cut and blow dry. just a one length cut that was easy. the blow dry was harder5 cause we were all making the hair frizzy. apparently that was just cause we were not holding the hairdryer right. Thursday's class was a bit of a disaster because we were putting rollers into long hair, which by the way it really hard! i didn't even finish one head full in three hours. hopefully this tuesday we will be back to blow drying cause i really want to work on that. i haven't got much homework so far. it's all pretty basic stuff like, create a front page for your health and safety unit.

i have hardly been playing warcraft, i'll need to work out some sort of schedule for that. i think weekends are best, cause although i am working, i can still stay up late (after all, who needs to be awake for work?..). i had intended for wednesday to be a late night too, simply cause i don't have to get up in the morning. but i am too tired then and i just play badly when i am tired.
i have been paid now so i should be able to get my transfer of my shaman sorted this week. WOO!!
i also need to drag myself out of the rut i am in with my priest. i'm level 27 and i hate both ashenvale and thousand needles. hopefully i can get away with finishing off the hillbrad quests and then move on to stranglethorn or arathi (can't remember the level of arathi. it is around 30 isn't it?).

i have also rekindled my love of pokémon! i mentioned a while back that i bought pokémon pearl and i have been playing that loads. i am only two gym badges in mind. and i will insist on using naff pokémon. hehe i also can't manage to build a team that doesn't have glaring weaknesses. i am not going to bother saying levels (they are all low 20's anyway) but i has a golbat(poison/flying), ghastly(ghost), ponyta(fire), grotle(grass, onix(rock/ground)and luxio(electric). i fail at remembering what type is effective against what. all i know is that my ponyta must front my team (despite being the baby of the group) because he has the Run Away ability which is terribly useful for then you are up against a monster you can't possibly beat. as far as i understand you can catch most of the existing pokémon in this game, so i will probably end up with a whole load of poison types (arbok and seviper FTW).
i need to get my onix stored out. i love her to bits but... umm. i didn't realise she was a girl when i caught and named her so it's all very inappropriate. and yes i am awkward like that, my team has to be all male because all the names i use suit male characters. oh yes, i name them. all of them. every single monster i catch. means i don't bother to catch a monster i probably will never use :D
i am hoping that i'll be able to get my hands of more than one eevee. there are 7 eeveelutions now. and i want them all.
i also wish i had been smart and thought about what version of the game i wanted. i would have preferred the steel type legendary pokémon from diamond rather than the water type from pearl. oh well. maybe once i have got my wireless adsl sorted out i'll find someone online who wants to trade.
i have my fingers crossed that within the next few years we will see a pokémon MMORPG for the Wii. the sad geek in me would love that so very much. hehe.

enough pokémon chit chat. i have to shower ready for work, then try out my new keyboard with warcraft. (or a might just sit in the garden and play pokémon...

There are some quests in Alterac Mountains you get in Southshore which are about level 30 if memory serves, though as soon as you reach 30 its best to go to Stranglethorn.

((Despite not playing the game now I pride myself on knowing too much))

Glad to hear that college is going well :)

i am horde so i can't be gallivanting about southshore (unless i enjoy being dead...). i still have 3-4 quests that should take me to level 28 or 29. it's just a bit boring.

A geek and proud of it :)

Arathi Highlands was a good place while I was horde, since I used the area when I could not find quests elsewhere. Though I think I grinded 29-30 though I cannot remember what mobs I used.

Hillsbrad (whatever the place is called, tarren mill, southshore etc... that bit of land)has a few harder quests in that battle for hillsbrad chain. Me and Stew tried to do the elite dwarf section. Lets just say, my kneecaps are still sore...

That's good that college is going well. Sounds hard though. Bet its fun though.

Oh I have Pokemon Diamond! I gotta start playing it though. Haven't yet. I want to get Pokemon Pearl too so me and my mom can both play. I could so see a Pokemon MMORPG. I'm sure there will be one someday.

Are you still alive?

I noticed you have moved servers now :p Hope that's panning out okay for you. How's things non-wow related going for you?

Re: Are you still alive?
