Don’t Panic

I know, I know … I didn’t post at ALL last week. I just …

I dunno.

I woke up Thursday morning and the cord to my cell phone charger was in two pieces, the phone dead. Of course, this happens on a day when there is a big event in the neighborhood so I cannot move my car or I won’t have a parking space when I come back. So there was nothing I could do about it that day. Then I remembered that I have a car charger that I have never even taken out of the packaging. I dig that out, and confirm that the phone is still operational, just out of power. I juice it up enough to remove my mobile authenticator. Don’t panic! I have an old style key fob authenticator that I put on the account instead. I would never leave it unprotected.

So, now that that’s done, I can play. I did panic a little that day knowing that my authenticator was on the phone and if the phone was fried, I would be in trouble.

Then Friday … I didn’t even feel like playing. I just … didn’t even make it to the login screen. I may have loaded the launcher, I don’t remember. But … I ended up playing Dragon Age: Origins instead. Yes, I know, free beta weekend in Neverwinter and I’m … back in DA:O. Not even DA2!

Saturday morning I took the dog to the vet to get his allergies looked at, and on the way home we stopped to take care of that whole cell phone charger issue. The sales associate was a hot Filipino-looking dude, so of course … I let him talk me into upgrading my phone instead of just getting a charger. I know, I know … but to fair, I’d had this same phone for 5 years. It was past time to replace it. Moving on up from 3G to 4G, yo.

Then I got home and … still didn’t feel like playing. I did a little more DA:O then watched a bunch of stuff on Hulu and played with the phone. Sunday I *did* log in for a couple of hours. I did some fishing and pet battling. Oh, and I went to TK and finally did lay the smack down on Kael. Then I was done. I did more Hulu, and more DA:O, and more playing with the phone (the two games that I play I had to start over from level 1, so I had some catching up to do).

What will I do tonight? I don’t know. I have no burning desire to log in right now. I don’t know if I’m burned out, or just need a break, or what. What I *really* want is to get my hands on Hearthstone already. Come on Blizz! Gimme gimme.

    Enjoy that new phone! I’m pretty sure I know what’s chased me away for a bit. My win ratio in PvP battles is like, them 100 wins, me 2 wins. So instead I’ll battle giant rats in Neverwinter for a bit while I pout, lol.

    Congratz on the new phone – I still have a “dumb” phone, haven’t even attempted to get a smart one yet because the user can’t figure it out.

    Hehe, I’ve had the same kind of weekend, didn’t play that much WoW, however, I did get a character to level 20 to see where the “monks” go – hehe, okay, I’m a dork.

    You know, I’m kinda thinking … if not logging in for two whole nights is that unusual … maybe I play too much.

    If I don’t log in I have nothing better to do than sit and stare into empty space or do housework…so I made another DK.
