Hi. My name is Jo and I was a WoWaholic… and I LOVED it

When some folks look back on their accomplishments they see a beautiful montage of time with friends or starting a family. For others it might be reaching career goals or achieving the dream you never thought would come true.

This is mine.

Once upon a time, I played this wicked game called World of Warcraft and boy, did I play it A LOT.

I was Guild Leader (be jealous) of a Horde guild called Hellhounds of Chaos.

No. We weren’t all uber lame basement dwellers.

Well. Maybe some of us were. But mostly, we were awesomesauce.

I raided with the best group of people I’ve ever met. Sometimes when I’m bored out of my nut, I think back on the amazing adventures I shared with these kick-ass players and wish I could go back and do it all again.

The game will never be the same but luckily my good friend David (a.k.a Ole’ One-Glaive) recorded many of our legendary moments, which are now forever immortalized on youtube.

Warlords of Draenor – the latest WoW expansion – released this week. I’m trying my best not to play, I have editing that needs to get done and if I install that game, you’ll be waiting years to get Veil of the Corrupter.

My husband did grab it however and he swears it’s the best expansion since Burning Crusade. Now, if you’re a WoW player and you experienced the epic wargasm that was Burning Crusade, then you’ll realise that such a statement is a pretty big deal. BC was the shizzle.

I need strength right now to resist. Just when I think I’m clean, Azeroth wants me to do lines with it in the bathroom.

This however did inspire my Midweek Motivators. It’s a homage to video games. I could do a zillion of these based on video games, so let’s just call this Part One.

EDIBLE Rashuns. The delicious cheesy snack of all true gamers. But be prepared for scrummy orange cheese dust on your fingers and keyboard. Is it worth it? Hell yeah.

VISUAL Duke Nukem. I know. Duke Nukem Forever was a terrible game but don’t judge The Duke based on that. He is the King of Badassery with such phrases as “It’s time to kick ass and chew bubble gum… and I’m all outta gum” and of course “COME GET SOME!!!”

AUDIBLE M4, Part 2 by The Faunts from the game Mass Effect. Fantastic tune but you know what, it plays in that Kael video I just shared! You don’t want to listen to that again! You deserve fresh video grooves! So instead, enjoy a suitable substitute, “Want You Gone” from Portal 2.

I can’t be bothered updating the graphic so just pretend, ok?

You know. If this post was suppose to stifle my video game cravings it has failed miserably. Maybe I’ll just play some Sims 3. Remodelling bathrooms isn’t as immersive as crushing the Alliance.

 HoC! HoC! HoC!  HoC! HoC! HoC!  HoC! HoC! HoC!
