Alrighty, then!

Cleared out the mail boxes.

Canceled the auctions.

Prepped the toons for storage.

I'm done with WoW for the time being.

The game has lost its draw for me - as Deathrender succinctly put it: "The only thing left is harder raiding" and that is not appealing to me at this juncture. I still have a couple of months that I've already paid for, so the option of returning is wide open.

So, what now?

Well....I did my taxes last night....

....I reconciled a bank statement....

I watched a Cutco knife presentation and bought about $500 worth of knives.

I took a nap as soon as I got home from work.

I watched a little American Idol...very little....

And fired up EVE Online for about an hour. Long enough to make a 20 jump journey. I think I'll make a separate post about my adventures there. It is quite a bit different than WoW.

I'm looking forward to hearing about your next adventures. May the mutton chops be plentiful... :)

By the way, someone in the Rookie Chat asked about ship steering last night -- turns out you can manually steer by double clicking somewhere in space. I tried it a little and it seemed to work, though I was in my super-slow mining ship, so it wasn't much fun. Anyway, give it a whirl...

Oh, cool! I'll have to try that out when I log on.

So, what are you using for a mining ship? I was going to use my new Wreathe, but it looks like it only has one hard point for a miner. Not very efficient.

I'm thinking I'll be sticking with my Thrasher for now....hey, maybe I should write a post!! lol.

Cupcakes...They miss you.

I hear ya, buddy. WoW is pretty stale right now.

And its weird, I could play a game like Warcraft 2 or Dune 2 or Age of Kings endlessly. Just brainless, me against the totally ineffective AI, random map, build a base and go at it. Its the same every time, but I never really got tired of them. (Well, I suppose I did tire of them, since I'm not playing them anymore, but it took a long time to grow tired, and it never felt like a forced timesink).

I'll be happy to see Ulduar, but who knows.

Honestly for me, I think its the Easy Raiding with Hard Modes. There's too much differing opinion of whether to pursue Hard Modes or not. Easy Modes are too easy for my guild, and the hard achievements (Immortal, 6 Minute Maly) are hard enough that half the team just doesn't want to do them. If we focused, there's no doubt in my mind that we could do them, but the motivation just isnt there in the team. Oh well.

On the lighter side, I have been brainstorming what attributes of my ideal hobby would be, just in case I find myself looking for a new one anytime soon.

I'd love to hear more about your experience in EVE, although I doubt I'd jump into another MMO myself.
