Lethergy and Justin Bieber

It turns out Justin Beiber can perform a great track. Unsurprisingly, it requires a lot of production. Click the link for a classic stoner tune.

I seem to have been infected with some sort of OpenSource parasite. Suddenly I'm installing 'X'Buntu on everything (Substitute X with your Ubuntu derivative of choice) and I have to say, so far so good. This means I've spent very little time on WoW

Apart from running the weekly last week (Lord Marrowgar must die) and finally breaking Marrowgar, Deathwhisper and then lootship, I've been mainly away from WoW of late. However, did finally start sorting my gear out, the latest decent addition being Breastplate of the White Knight. The gems suck at the moment, but more to follow on that score :)

SO looking forward to cataclysm. Judging by the mood I'm perceiving on the server, so's everyone else. When are they going to announce the relase date and collector's edition?

Ich bin eine Panzer!!

I am a tank, and it rules!! - I recently rerolled (Rick rolled?) my ret pally
I am loving being a tank. 5 second random waits are a special favourite. It's a tough learning curve, and I had trouble with crap gear to start with. This meant I took a lot of abuse, especially from rude Greeks on Trollbane EU. I am reliably informed that this is a server almost solely for immature, stupid and angry people (And in some groups I've been in, all three.) Obviously apologies to the one brilliant, supportive person on Trollbane who I grouped with recently. You seriously rock.

Now I have all ilevel 200+ gear (Barring one crap trinket) and I will be randoming every night I can. Being a tank means that when +Def gear drops, no one argues when you roll need on it.

Charlie's training rolls on. This means I'm solely in charge of our son while she trains. This is good when he sleeps (Which he's getting better at) but friction when he doesn't. Summer seems to have taken a nosedive here in Britain, where I am in The City is overcast and foreboding. It's good for the lawn back home, so I can't complain too much.

Payday and the weekend beckon. Not long now.....
