Daily Journal: So the problem with my Mac

The problem with my MacbookPro Retina may be that the video card is going bad. Portal & Diablo 3 are causing the OS to crash. I made a genius bar appointment.

Shammy learned Glyph of Far Sight from Minor Inscription Research & Glyph of Deep Freeze via the Scroll of Wisdom. Only 10 more unknown on my list.


Hunterbook – learned Bindings of Meditation today.


Did a little professions stuff on my Sith Inquisitor for SWOTR.


While I slept I put Time Machine to backing up the MacBookPro. I got up early cause I wasn’t sleeping well.  Played a little World of Warcraft. Basically spend some time on my Monk herbing & mining to level up those skills. Then I went and did her daily monk quest.


Oh I’m on Raptr now so Apparently when I imported my WoW achievements I bumped from Newbie to Elite……………………


Took the MacBook Pro retina in to the Genius Bar at the Apple Store. The fans were at 5000 rpm when they should be around 2000 rpm. They cleaned out a lot of cat hair.


On Book’s Cooking Apprentice Daily today got Chun Tian Spring Rolls. Again. It loves to give em those. Decided to do pet battles tonight. Got Brok in Hyjal. Vordin Steadyfist in Deepholm & Goz Banefury in Twilight Highlands. Got an quality upgrade via capture to my Ash Viper from green to blue. Got a Highlands Skunk of the grey quality, and capture upgrade from green to blue on a Highlands Mouse. My humanoid pet wasn’t high enough level



so I went around panderia capturing wild pets while I leveled him. Caught a white Coral Adder. Captured a white Temple Snake. Then turned around and caught a blue quality Temple Snake. Got a green quality Garden Frog as an add to a fight. Captured a white quality Softshell Snapling. Captured a green quality Zooey Snake.  Captured a grey quality Summit Kid & a Alpine Foxling Kit. Captured a whte quality Alpine Foxling. I managed to capture o blue Tolai Hare which will replace my green one. Next I captured a blue Zooey Snake. Tolai Hare Pup got an upgrade from white to green via capture. Caught a green Mongoose Pup in Townlong Steppes for Pandaria Tamer achievement. Finally hit 25 with the Kun-Lai Runt and went back to defeat the last trainer for Taming Cataclysm. Zoning into Stormwind triggered Trainer Extraordinaire.


I got a Nielsen TV survey in the mail which I went online & filled out. They included $10 in the package in cash. WoW.


Went back and finished the Pandaria trainers. Got Taming Panderia & Taming Azeroth achievements. Also the “I Choose You!” achievement.

Saturday night is alright for fighting

Screenshot_4_28_13_9_42_AM Saturday night is my Skype night with my RL friends now that we are scattered more across the US. We frequently do things in WoW as well. I was in a leveling mood so I suggested brand new alts on a new server. My friend Ashnew stated she’d never picked Horde side on a Panda to see how the joining that faction story went. So we went over to Trollbane to roll level 1 panda. I had a cute little hunter. Ashnew decided she’d try a mage (yes the warrior was going to try to pew, pew). Bluemoon made a monk (on ER she has one in her upper 80’s). We got through the Wandering Isle and introduced ourselves to Garrosh. The words from Ashnew was “he’s a dick.” I totally agree. Anyway it was fun hanging out with them.

Tools of WoW Investigation: Tankspot & Learn2Raid

While I can spout off such things as what is the basic stat you want (ie Agility, Strength, Intellect) for each spec a lot of the “finer” details I have to research. So I thought I’d share some sources I currently use.



My two sites for videos of encounters. This way I can see what is supposed to happen before I go into a fight.

I’ve always said that Stand By Me was so successful because Rob cast four young actors who were so much like their characters, but I think it’s spooky how the four of us ended up being so much like our characters: River died too young, Corey struggled like crazy to get his personal demons under control, Jerry found success and happiness, and I’m a writer.

I’ve read this post multiple times. This is what always gets me.

What am I writing on.

Just in case you were wondering what fanfic I am writing on here lately.  My CSI: NY Danny & Lindsay obsession has about run its course now that there is development on screen that I am happy with. Now I am working on a story that is heading toward epic fanfiction. I’m at 4000 words and I have more yet to add. If it keeps growing at this rate it will be a novel in and of itself. It’s in the Twilight universe. I’ve become obsessed not with main characters Bella & Edward, but all the supporting cast. Mainly Carlisle Cullen & Esme Cullen. I find them a very fascinating couple being “Mom & Dad” to a bunch of “teen aged” vampires. Granted Esme was changed at 26 & Carlisle at 23 so they appear close in age to the “kids” who were changed at 17 (Edward), 18 (Rosalie & Bella), 19 (Alice) & 20 (Jasper & Emmett).

I do have some issues with character development in the books. Honestly, I thought the author left Rosalie very flat while giving too much to Alice’s character when some of the traits would fit perfectly with how Rosalie was developing at the time. I’m mainly staying in a time period before the vast majority of the characters join the family. But that presents a new problem. I have to write a time period that I am not familiar with (obviously I am too young to remember the 1920’s).  The story is going to be the romance story between Esme & Carlisle.  @demonasolace got a bit of a preview at ShadowCon, but I have written lots since then.
