Patch 4.3

Today has been a World of Warcraft day. I have spent far too much time sitting at my computer playing that game. The reason for this is today patch 4.3 – Hour of Twilight was released. To people who now have no clue what I’m talking about, this means there’s lots of new stuff to do in the game that there wasn’t yesterday.

The first thing I did was get Danni sorted with some nice gear. I decided that until I get around to farming a proper pretty set of armour, I was going to wear Black Mageweave (I am a tailor so made it myself), which is less pretty and more sexy. Up to now I’ve not seen anyone else wearing it, so that is good.

I then started dumping most of my old gear from my bank into void storage. And got angry because some of the items weren’t allowed in, for vague reasons. Like my Ashen Verdict ring that I kept from Ice Crown Citadel. I managed to dump quite a bit in there though, and that meant I could dump stuff from my bags into my bank, so now I can actually use my bags again. This is good.

After a long rest, I went back on to do the new 5 man dungeons. We got a mostly guild group together, and had a pug mage from a different realm who was awesome and gave me cookies. The new dungeons were a bit challenging but not too hard, and were tons of fun. I did sit up for too long so I could complete them all (we had a few wipes while learning what to do and with me occasionally failing) but it was worth it. The individual dungeons are short enough that if I’m having a good day I should be able to run them, so that’s awesome.

There’s also a new raid, but I’m not geared enough or well enough to try that yet. Maybe when I improve a bit.

Johan went out today to the MetroCentre. Apparently it was packed. This may have had something to do with a strike that was going on, that meant most of the schools were closed, among other places. He didn’t really buy anything that I saw, but did use his mobile phone to buy a McDonalds on the way home, paid for by Google. That was cool, though I want a McDonalds and can’t have one because the bus drivers won’t let Johan carry one on for me 🙁

I am now hungry. I have to wait for Johan to complete a dungeon before he can even start cooking. This means I’ll have to stay up late. I’m not particularly happy about this. At least I can watch Penguins in the meantime.

Feeling Weird

Slept from 12.30am – 2.30pmish today. Johan was sitting on the windowsill when I woke up, waiting for his graphics card to arrive. It did so just before 6pm.

I’m doing my own, very vague method of activity management. It basically consists of trying to get up and sit in my computer chair every day, no matter how ill I feel. I’ve managed it every day for a while now, and it’s not making me worse, just means I sleep more. I try and get back off before I start feeling even more bleh, but it means I get to play some World of Warcraft everyday. I made my Worgan Mage Elisaveta into a Gnome called Tiarna. She’s so small and cute, and best of all she doesn’t make any annoying sniffing noises 😀

I feel weird. The nausea has been worse today, so I’ve been taking the antisickness tablets, which haven’t helped much. My brain has been all over the place, and the pain has been bad even with the painkillers. I “lost” a few hours after waking up just because I felt too rotten to move.

I’ve ordered some stuff from Amazon to be delivered tomorrow, and done a grocery shop with Sainsburys to be delivered on Wednesday. Nothing too amazing, though we have three different types of roast-style meats to try (they were 3 for £10). They also do pre-prepared sweet potato and butternut squash, so when they arrive I’m getting Johan to make me my orange soup 😀

Did get dressed today, in my favourite Diablo 3 t-shirt and a denim skirt. Johan plaited my hair. It’s very loose as he’s not got the hang of keeping hold of all the hair while plaiting it, but it’s not too bad and he’s learning 🙂

Project 365: Day 67: 27th August 2011 – Katie and Penguin

Katie and Penguin

Today Johan wasn’t in, so Martin looked after me. He did well, except for the trying to break my toes when he was pushing me in the wheelchair :p

Today has been another lazy day. Played World of Warcraft, The Sims Social when it would work (it’s not again now), tried to read a book but didn’t have the concentration  so read a magazine instead. Also watched Doctor Who and ordered a new wheelchair. New wheelchair is the same as the old wheelchair, just less broken.

It’s been fun having Martin here, and he’s staying overnight as he can’t be bothered to get two buses home. Johan got back around 9pm, and he said he enjoyed his day out. Now I am the sleepies so will be turning laptop off and going to sleep.

Project 365: Day 66: 26th August 2011 – Martin


A wild Martin appears!

Slept in today, until 1pm. I needed it to catch up with the lack of sleep recently. Was very groggy all day, and wasn’t well enough for a bath when favourite carer came this evening, but she did some tidying instead.

My brother arrived while favourite carer was here. He’s staying overnight, then here tomorrow to Danni-sit me while Johan goes off to Manchester. I was meant to be going with him, but I’m not well enough to travel that sort of distance at the moment.

Spent the time I’ve been awake doing pretty much nothing on the laptop, resting, then a short period on my desktop computer playing World of Warcraft on the US realms.

Tomorrow, I hope to get dressed 😛

Project 365: Day 65: 25th August 2011 – Big Penguin

Big Penguin

I missed 4 days. I wasn’t well, and I said at the beginning I wasn’t going to be too upset if I missed any. Getting back into it now though.

Spent a lot of the day in bed resting/laptoping, but also had a bath and went on the computer for a bit. The last few days have been rough, especially yesterday where I felt really ill and was very emotional and things. Mostly better now, though I still don’t have my "normal" level of strength.

I’ve still been playing The Sims Social, but it’s really slow and horrible on my laptop so I’ve just been playing it on my desktop computer. Also found a penguin video that made me happy.
