i have reached the pinnacle of geekdom!

so, as many of y'all know, shayne and i have been "playing a little warcraft". we share a level 36 Paladin named Viskey (after a funny typo the pharmacist made on some medecine for shayne's cat). we periodically yell out such gems as "WILLOW PANTS OF THE MONKEY!!"

we have a guild, and some of our "guildies" are ten, or youger. which is good, because warcraft changes all of your cusses into &^%$#@!

we have a pet kitten in the bank, safely stowed in a carrier.

and we have a very generous benefactor who occasionally buys us trinkets and bad-ass armor.

but if all of this isn't geeky enough -- we have reached a new height! yessiree folks. we trolled another warcraft player on youtube.

i am a little ashamed. but stand by what i said. shaman's wear dresses and thus will never be truly menacing.

Hey Kate. Anyone who's anyone knows that playing a Paladin is like playing Warcraft on "easy mode". Come on!

Don't know if you remember me, but this is Chris Russo. Last time I saw you was probably in elementary school. I thought you were awesome then, so it's kinda scary to see we have a number of similar interests now. :)

I found you because it turns out my best friend (J. DuBois) is a mutual aquaintance of yours. I'm moving back to Boxborough and was driving by your house and mentioned it to him, we wound up talking about you and started googling for you and your family like pathetic stalkers. :)

If you wanna say hi, drop me an email at man-a-heim10@hot-mail.com (remove the - s)

pally's are all the rage these days!

okay, kids, let this be a lesson to you -- be careful what you blog about. or friends from 20 years ago will randomly hunt you down and learn about your embarrassing addictions.

hi chris! check your mail :)

Don't feel bad, though... I play Eve Online. I honestly think that may be worse than WOW. :) http://www.eve-online.com
