Are we there yet?? Is it July?? I wish it was. I know that I will be home the first two weeks of July. I know, that even though I'll be running around like crazy the week of the 4th, that I'll be on vacation. I so can't wait!
This weekend was a lot of fun. My good friend from college who lives in MD came up to visit this weekend. We were supposed to go to the faire on Sunday. It rained. We staid dry. Saturday she was a real trooper and helped me wage battle against the level 50 epic X2 mob known as Apartment Grunge. She then helped tackle the group of level 60 epic X2 mobs known as Boxes o'Junk. She was rewarded with home cooked food and lots of chocolate. (Not to mention my eternal thanks.)
Sunday the forecast called for 80% chance of rain by 10am and 90% chance of thunder storms by noon. As much as I love going to the Faire and Celtic Fest, we decide staying dry and not electrocuted was a good idea. Besides, a total of 2 or 3 hours driving in the rain really stinks. Instead we all (Gak, Michelle and I) ventured to the zone known as Ikea. This is a dangerous zone for levels 18+. Unfortunately, most of the mobs we were looking for hadn't popped, or had been taken out in a previous update. This didn't mean we escaped scott free though. No, we still left with our money pouches considerably lighter. We did find the mythic End Table as well as the elusive Hanging Drying Rack. Not to mention getting ambushed by a horde of Candle Holders. (Not too bad when they're solo, but in groups of 4 or more, they're deadly!) There were several other things that wandered home with us.
As if all this adventuring wasn't good enough, I had to say to my friends: Sure, come on over! We'll have burgers and dogs and just hang out tonight. I get the feeling that since I actually have the space to entertain, I'm making up for all the lost time that I couldn't have all my friends over at once the last 2 years. I think there were a total of 9 people in my apartment and it wasn't crowded at all, except when 3 of us were trying to cook at once. It is really good to be able to have my friends over and just hang out. We may not have a balcony, porch, deck or yard, but we've got plenty of space inside.
Now I'm in Minnesota. I'll be here until Friday. Battling the heroic mob known as Startup Training. This should be fun. Hopefully it won't be a level 70 ^^^, but one never knows until one gets to the site. At least it is sunny and not raining here. (Although they are calling for thunder storms just in time for my flight out on Friday...)
Well, peace to all and I may actually get to spend some time in Norrath next week.
