A Diary from Draenor

Everyone gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense.

A Diary from Draenor

Today’s Fantasy Date: Nov. 11, 2015 — it is supposed to Blizzard in Wyoming today.

Blizzcon has come and gone, it was a huge convention. I watched the free stream of the opening ceremony and then made a bowl of oatmeal.

News keeps coming out. But here is the deal: watch out for class news as it impacts directly on how you will play, go easy on the future content (zones, questing, raids) because you want to discover that on your own when it comes out.

Gertrude Stein and Ernest Hemingway declared the kids who grew up during World War One to be the Lost Generation. Of course, our hero Dorothy Parker said “Yay! We are lost!”. Now, one hundred years later, I wonder how lost they were? And what is our current generation?

I want to think that we are cynical and savvy and in tune with this ever-changing world. But we are really dumb and naïve, all over again! We fell for the 16 glasses of water a day scam that spawned the water bottle business. We fell for eggs are bad. We fell for almost every diet trend and the high costs of those diets over and over again. We spend millions on moisturizing cream when we could simply drink more water!

Naïve again, we are buying Fitbits. The doctors say (in caps, I suppose) The Doctors Say that we should have 2000 steps a day for healthy living. Nothing wrong with plenty of steps. But, it is selling a lot of pedometer watches. Suckered again.

Pre 6.2.3 patch, this is the slow end time of an expansion. One of my favorite times too! There is nothing to keep caught up on, certainly nothing compelling. Get out of the darn house and take a walk — in fact, my cheeks are cold still from my walk today.

We log in now at the end days to play with our friends. That is the best part. We can throw a party. We can chat and look into achievements that we’ve ignored or try a new class.

Today, to this blog, I have visitors from United States, Israel, Belgium, Germany and New Zealand.
