We come in all shapes and sizes

May 20, 2009

That is so HOT to meet another girl who games.  That’s tight!  What games do you play?

Umm, you know, role-playing games mostly.

Oh.  I’m an FPS girl.  Halo.  Boom!  Head shots… I’m ranked and stuff.  It’s the truth.

Well I kill stuff too, it’s just I wear prettier outfits.

Cool. <awkward pause>  I’m gonna grab a drink.

They say it’s your birthday. We’re gonna have a good time!

Chef Products Now in the Store

April 9, 2009

Just a quick FYI to let everyone know that we went ahead and created some new merchandise for the “Chef” achievements in our Zazzle store.  We couldn’t decide between a serious image and a silly image, so we made two versions (more…)

Master Angler Swag!

April 5, 2009

Hubby and I have been working the past few days on a new project.  We wanted to take another stab at the online store, but we really didn’t want to do the typical thing of plopping our site name on a shirt and hoping you good folks would pay money to give us free advertising… so we wracked our brains until we thought of something more interesting.


What’s in a Name?

July 11, 2008

I just saw a post on WoWInsider about themes for character names.  Reading through the article and comments, it got me thinking about how many ways there are to approach this core gaming ritual.  Your name is one of the first decisions you have to make about your character, its also something that defines you throughout your WoW career.  How much time and effort do we put into this process that tells others so much about us?


Tailoring Guide Updated

July 5, 2008

Just a quick FYI to let you all know that I updated our Tailoring Guide with new Burning Crusade information.  I finally bit the bullet and took up Tailoring on one of my toons – with WotLK coming down the pike I want to have all tradeskills covered.  The upside is that Tailoring is fairly easy to level, which I’m sure is why I haven’t had any complaints about our outdated Tailoring guide.


My first Premade on the Test Realm

June 30, 2008

It’s been awhile since they offered premade characters on the PTR, and I personally have never indulged.  Since I’m generally there to test crafting items and occasionally noodle with class changes, I just copy my own characters.  This time everyone was making such a huge fuss over getting premades, I thought I’d do it just out of curiousity.


Blizz-ume for Kaliope of Llane

June 11, 2008

Since making her way into Azeroth, Kaliope has made a point of exploring and mastering all professions in the World of Warcraft. She has achieved a rank of Master Chef and Head Nurse on four avatars and Master Angler on one avatar. She has juggled her fully grown avatars to cover all but one primary profession: Tailoring. However, she does have an adolescent avatar who is an Artisan Tailor. Kaliope of Llane has 78 days, 8 hours, 31 minutes of experience in the World of Warcraft and with her sisters: Krystella, Korlyn and Kayree they have a total of 206 days, 5 hours, 52 minutes of combined experience.


And now for something completely different…

May 27, 2008

Hi Friend,

I know you are a huge fan of WoW and you will do whatever you have to do to be UB3R 1337 H4X0RZ , so I am letting you in on a secret. Before you get suspicious, this doesn’t involve gold-farming, powerleveling services or anything that costs you money. (more…)

The Alien has entered the the Building

May 23, 2008

After two weeks of waiting and going on minimal WoW status, I just can’t resist sharing my new computer :) Everyone has been Ooohing and Ahhhing over it since the FedEx guy brought it over yesterday. (more…)
