Picked up another addictive habit. Playing the online game Warcraft Cataclysm. My son and his friends play and
told me about a trail version, so I figured what the heck. It's blazing heat out and I feel so much better when I stay indoors, so I thought I'd give it a try. I'm really terrible at it, but have managed to get to level 15 with my Blood Elf character, although she has been killed and resurrected several times(damn those vampire mist bats!!) . So far she can attack enemies with fire bolts and frost bolts.
The game has "quests" to earn points to obtain a higher level. These quests are mostly going around killing weird creatures and collecting things. The people who know what they're doing can chat, join groups, and guilds. I'm way too slow for all that, although I really would like to. It makes me feel good to know that I'm not the space cadet I think I am and can actually figure things out in this game and have a strategy.
Have some time to waste? Give it a try
Here's a good quote I found at Doonesbury.I couldn't agree more and it's another thing that makes me feel better. I'm not alone!!
"I have always wished for my computer to be as easy to use as my telephone; my wish has come true because I can no longer figure out how to use my telephone."
— Danish computer scientist Bjarne Stroustrup
In closing I just wanted to say that I published some recent comments but now I can't figure out where they went and can't remember who they where from. They are really good comments too so Thank You.
What's that I just said about not being a space cadet ?
