03/01/2005 Entry: "Geeky. Tired, But Geeky Nonetheless."

You'd probably have to play the game to understand half of them. OK, most of these. Hey, I never claimed I wasn't a geek obsessed.

You know you've been playing too much World of Warcraft when...

...you go into the refrigerator to slice yourself a nice piece of Dalarian Sharp.
...you hear a band-aid ripping open and expect to see red plus symbols swirling around you.
...while walking to work, you forget that, in the real world, the other players in town cannot run right through you.
...you've made up lyrics to any of the Cities' theme music. ("Sto-o-o-rmwind, Pride of the Allies; Fly Like the Griffin, Sto-o-o-rmwi-i-i-ind...")
...you write paeons to your pet. "This is my Voidwalker. There are many Voidwalkers like it, but this one is mine. My Voidwalker is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life."
...paying someone to farm XP and gold for your character while you're at work starts sounding less and less like an unreasonable idea.
...you spend the whole day at work in a daze writing a dumb list because you were up so late the night before, doing easy quests for extra silver.

So long as you refrain from wearing elf ears in public, feel free to continue being a geek.

Try drinking four shots of espresso in steamed half & half to keep yourself going. Going where is another story.

Going to the emergency room, I think. Child, I already get winded on long staircases; can we at least make it non-fat?

(By the way, that's a lovely new site design you've got there, J.)
