I discover that I cannot walk the tightrope.

I have a Wii and managed to find a Wii fit, on the general principle that combining exercise and computer games is not a bad thing.

My balance being what it isn’t, I am trying to improve it. According to Nintendo, my balance, on two feet, is pretty damn good. Lift one foot off the floor in any situation, and you have a recipe for disaster. It’s like my brain is going  * TILT* *TILT*

So, some of the yoga poses are fine. Others less so. Oh, it SAYS that it’s fine to hang on to someone, or something till you get the hang of it, but find me one sober person who is happy to make an idiot of themselves in company, and they can do the tree pose instead of me.

I’ve discovered, so far, that I’m addicted to the Wibble board where you have to drop marbles through holes without losing them, against the clock. Only the marbles are people, and the boards are different shapes and… well… It keeps me amused anyway.

I’m not to bad at the penguin tilting game. Football heading gets me hit in the face with shoes and panda heads approx 73% of the time. I’ve worked through the Step classes and discovered that I will probably never ever win at DDR. “tips to improve – work on your sense of rythm” Ooooo, I havent got one to speak of.

Still, lets see if i keep it up.

Unlike me on the  tightrope, where lifting either foot sends me plummeting to my untimely doom to the cheers of the wiimii gallery on the far side. Gits.

Creeping undeath

It’s spreading.  

I can tell how bad the infection is when my little sis ( a respectable married mother of two) takes my WOW atlas to work for lunchtime reading. Or when she calls me from work to let me know she logged on for an hour after dropping the kids off at school in order to level. when she can define Mobs and dings and waxes lyrical about the playability of rogues versus warriors (priests areapparently ‘just plain freaky’ …)

Father Jack …

Yeah. I was right. My Peaceful intentions didnt last long.”
I started looking at my threefold path. Should I choose Holiness and become a benevolent healer? Discipline and become stern and powerful ? Shadow and start looking at bloody grooved alterstones and ….. well, you get my drift?
I’ve always had an evil laugh…. The path to the dark side is littered with dead Gnolls and humans running in fear…
Yes World of Warcraft again. I’m level 16 at the moment. I’ve got some pretty good spells and seen quite a lot of the world so far. Brother A has kindly ushered me through some cool instances so ive accumulated high level loot.
I’m an Undead Priest by the name of Dysplektia ( Its that word again) and I’m on EU Nordrassil.
If you’re passing /w me and say hi
I’m slipping from geekdom into nerdiness….

Return of the gaming undead

I’ve been a geek for a long time  oooooooo shiny gadgets !!!!  But now I’m actively participating in a MMPORG. World of Warcraft …

I played my brothers for a little while before christmas and while I was visiting again last weekend I installed it on my iBook and used my brothers guest pass.

3 hours later I’d bought my own copy …

There’s all these choices – Alliance [ goodies – technically ] or Horde [ uhm  the less… goodies] and then d’you want to be a troll or an elf or an orc.   

So obviously I’m an undead. Anyone who’s ever tried to wake me before noon on a weekend will see where the resemblance comes into play. Stick with what you know. and they’re on the Horde. And even the Horde think they’re a bit suspect  from what i can gather.   
Then what should I be  …  bearing in mind that my warrior skills are less than adequate – and how my intentions are to explore this cool place without really fighting anyone… priest. Perfect. Trundle along healing folk. The odd blessing.

Except… you hit the puny humans with a few smites, and before you know it youre thinking … hahahahaha I wonder what else I can do and you end up more of a Father Jack than a Father Ted. 
Brother A has kindly condescended to babysit my first few forays… and takes me sightseeing round places where i’d get wiped out on my own. Bless. I suspect he’s training up his own tame healer priest …


Visiting home – II

Nephew B broke his arm… There are three stairs in the house and he fell down them.

[ he also ran into several doors and smacked into all sorts of other objects … but thats normal]

Still I got to visit an entirely new A & E dept and Nephew B got a new cast despite ” it’s probably not broken” ” no – see he can move his fingers and everything” – just as a precautionary measure

WE got to look at the X-rays and played spot the break ( i won – years of practise with my own you see ) and a further visit to A & E means that he gets the cast off in january.

good eh?

On a lighter note my brother let me play with his World Of Warcraft. I got to be an undead warlock by the name of Pookie. I’m quite fond of slaying the wretched zombies ( still low level but they’ve only got ONE arm … ha ha ha)

I wonder if it’ll run on my ibook.



That reminds me i have to drop hints about Xmas to Adam…. 😀

Anyway all little people maimed and otherwise are safe at home again. Nephew A managed the return trip with 3 less pee stops. Yay!
