Winter’s log, earthdate 201610.15

I’m sorry about last night, but as you all know, my very favourite eldest daughter was over for the day, and because her husband works in Geelong now instead of “locally”, he has a much longer, but far more scenic route home from work, and my very favourite eldest daughter doesn’t have to leave as early as she used to – hence, it was far too late to start writing before dinner, so I didn’t – but I’ll try to make up for that tonight, how does that sound?! 😉

Anyway, as I predicted, we watched alternating episodes of “Arrow” and “The Flash”, as well as having long, in-depth analytical discussions on the state of current world politics, and current American politics in particular. Believe me, you really don’t want to know the conclusions that we came to, apart from the fact that we both felt that the two of us would make excellent stern, but benevolent, world dictators!! Honestly, do any of you out there in Reader Land really believe that there are any politicians – with enough power to make one jot of difference – anywhere at all in the world – who actually do put the needs of the people that they supposedly represent before their own power and position?! Hint: the answer you’re looking for is “Of course not!” 🙄

I played WoW for most of today – I was bemoaning the fact to my very favourite eldest daughter yesterday that out of the only four races I usually play – Night Elf, Draenei or Gnome, if I’m playing Alliance, or Blood Elf – and the occasional Undead, if I’m playing Horde – I can’t roll a Night Elf or Draenei Warlock! It’s not fair – they’re the two “prettiest” races, and as you all know, I like “pretty” characters! 🙂 Anyway, we were going through all the races, and she mentioned Worgen – the “wolf-human” race (it’s a long story!) Now, Julian and I have usually avoided playing either an Undead or a Worgen – we’ve never really “taken” to them, you could say – and me with my “must have pretty”, well it wasn’t until only a relatively short time ago that I realised I could roll a reasonably “pretty” Undead! So I have quite a few of them, scattered amongst the Realms. But Worgen? I always vowed that I’d never roll one because of the absolutely revolting way they ran – on all fours, like a wolf, but with all their “human” clothes on! Truly horrible! Long gowns dragging in the dust, galloping along! No way! And then my very favourite eldest daughter told me that… they didn’t have to run like that – they could actually run upright, or even ride one of the many different mounts available! Naturally, I had to try it out, but I don’t think “Cresilda”, my newest Worgen Warlock, will be around for much longer. I’ve got her up to level 15 – but the scenarios are “buggy”, there’s no access to banks, flight points, or letterboxes (so you can’t even mail your character items like larger bags etc!) and perhaps worst of all – not much access to Vendors, so that you can at least sell off your rubbish to make room in your one, pitiful backpack! Yes, you can run “upright” – but it’s s-l-o-w, you can’t ride anything until you get to level 20, and at level 15, I’ve just learnt how to revert to my “human” form again – but what’s the point? As soon as you start fighting something – and you’re always fighting something, it’s just the nature of the game – you turn back into your Worgen form! The last big quest chain that I haven’t been able to finish because it’s still bugged – the person you’re supposed to follow to complete the quest simply doesn’t turn up – about called it for me – I don’t think I’ll persevere with Cresilda… shame – if the quests weren’t quite so “buggy” I might have been more inclined to see what I could do with her… Oh well, Say Lar Vee, as the French are wont to say! 😉

Well, the die is cast, and the move is made – well actually, the move is “Pending” at the moment, but Demelza and Wynterthyme have started on their long trek from Quel’Dorei to Saurfang – we’ll check a bit later on to see if they’ve arrived or not – I just hope I don’t have to change Wynterthyme’s name when I get there! We moved them this afternoon, so that they’d be over their jet-lag and well rested to start off in their new Realm tomorrow morning! Of course, it doesn’t really work like that, but it sounds “plausible”, even if it really isn’t! So, we’ve both logged on to check up on our travelers, and yes, they both arrived on Saurfang safely! Wynterthyme was able to keep her name fully intact, but Demelza had to change hers – just a bit – to Demelzae, so it’s not too different! I’ll have to go back later and go through all of my “set-up” routines – everything moved across correctly – except for my Action Bars! Oh well – it shouldn’t take long… (Winter crosses her fingers and her eyes…) And that’s about everything that’s been going on for the past two days, so I should really get on with the “good” bits! 😉

Food stuffs. Yesterday for lunch we had wraps, very delicious, our favourite butter substitute, basil-pesto hummus, and ham, Halloumi cheese, spring onions and red capsicum – and for dinner last night we had pasta “spirali” (spiral pasta) with tomato sauce and grated parmesan cheese. For dessert I had one of my Nashi pears, and an Apple Le Rice. Today for lunch we had a really yummy sourdough sandwich, with sandwich-sliced cold roast beef Halloumi cheese, tomato, a few capers, and chopped lettuce – it was really delicious! 🙂 Tonight for dinner we’re having grilled chicken breasts on a bed of plain steamed rice with some spring onion finely sliced mixed through it, and for dessert I’ll be having one of the peaches that Julian got today, and a Vaalia Lemon Creme yoghurt.

Weigh-in yesterday morning. Was quite spooky, really! I actually came down two points, from 66.8 kg to 66.6 kg – “666”, the number of the beast! 😯
Weigh-in this morning. Wasn’t quite so “beastly”, for a change! I came down again – another three points! Yayyy me! I went from 66.6 kg (or “beastly” me!) to 66.3 kg – or where I was on Wednesday! However I’ll be back up to something like 66.9 kg tomorrow, no doubt! :/

And that brings me around to the end of the day, and almost the beginning of another one! Flipper slept almost all day on our bed, and has eaten a smallish amount of dinner tonight – we both hoping that she’ll buck-up a little soon, as we really don’t want to put her through the stress of taking her to the Vet – we shall see how she is tomorrow… on the finny side, Auric and Dapple are both being good little fishies, eating their dinner, and generally just having fun cruising up and down their Fish House – and that’s really about all I have to tell you this evening – so there you go! Do drop in again tomorrow night, to find out if Flipper finished the rest of her dinner or not, what my weight decided it was going to be, come morning, and how our first day in the Saurfang “Broken Isles” went! Until then though, please continue to bee as good as you possibly can, don’t forget that all things are difficult before they are easy, and remember to look after yourselves, to always drive carefully, and to keep warm and dry, even if you don’t really think you have to… but above all, please remember to always stay safe! 🙂 ciao, all! 🙂
