Friday Five: 5 Things That Made Me Smile This Week

  1. Yes, being named an officer in my guild was totally the highlight of my week. I am incredibly excited about being empowered to help shape our future, and keep our raiding momentum going, along with the help of fellow new officers Moober and Ox, the latter of whom joins the fabulous miss Sawyer as the 25-man RL team! I am confident we will collaborate to do great things together.
  2. Related to that, it’s been awesome to get tells cheering me on for that promotion, including from a lot of folks whom  haven’t really talked to a lot in game. I had a few old timers chat me up too which was cool. I know I am a new kid on the block when you’re talking about a 5-year-old guild, but I promise I’ll do my best to do right by them and myself. And thank you for such a warm reception.
  3. I found a cool shadow priest blog to add to my reading list: Lucky Lurky. Go check it out. They have a couple of recent posts on how to shadow priest that may be of interest to folks.
  4. I suckered yet another victim…er, guildie…into joining twitter. whoohoo! One.of. us.
  5. We’re hopefully going back into Ulduar tonight to try to get that last achievement out of the way so we can go and slap Algalon around. Thank you guys for pulling this together.

BONUS: Despite a rough week wherein we had two of our core raiding team members (who also scheduled our 10-mans) leave, plus our 25-man schedulers (who were also core raiders), go on hiatus, we dusted ourselves off as a guild and kept marching in the same direction. The week’s raids all got scheduled. All the same old bosses got killed. And we had a good time doing it. No, we didn’t take down anyone new yet, but we did hold it together, and that means a lot.

Happy Friday.

P.S. Today’s screenie is my Boomkin, doing a Scarlet Onslaught quest wherein you play dress-up as an Onslaught Raven Priest. Apparently they are very easily deceived…

  1. Oh god that’s awesome, I couldn’t figure out why they didn’t turn you into a human, now I understand, they are just stupid.
    And yes, I think we are on the path to awesome things.

  2. Grats again on your promotion! I hope it’s a great thing for you and for SHP!
    Did you have a problem with the horses seeing straight through your [hilariously ineffective] disguise? I just did that yesterday on the priestie and the horses kept going AMG TROLL! and attacking her, making her lose her disguise. I had to levitate and bubble off a cliff until I cleared out all the horses.

  3. Thanks, hon.
    No, I didn’t run into any of the horsies that I recall, but there were a few folks out there questing at the time so I probably got lucky. 🙂 Shadowkins always crack me up…
