Juuno and Pixie Girl!










Hi Aprillian, Leeta, Rogueslayer, Tedrah and all of our awesome wow family!
  Hope everyone is having a awesome week, in an out game!
You know I have nothing to report for the past week, didn't really play until tonight. Those I did have a very nice mumble conversation with Rain, Big G, Reprint & Wingy again. We talked about Big G's hard wood thingy! But thanks too Sweet Leeta I now know what it is Big G was talking about, a musical instrument, shame on you G for getting us going lol We were all laughing so hard tears came to
our eyes, but you know what that's the first I've laughed in over three weeks.
And I had fun tonight chatting with everyone can't say how much you all mean to me, but I did get one request. For those that don't have Greenwall please get it, our second guild can't see what were talking about. And Rain really is missing out on our conversations it makes her sad when she can't see what everyone is chatting about, only getting bits and peace's. It is kind of funny when your in the second guild and you see just a little of what's going
on. It's like wait, what, who okay I'm lost now help!
Anyway Junno said to tell you she'll be back soon too, she had a awesome time on her trip. And like me been coasting, playing in her yard taking it day by day. She also sends her love and lots of kisses and hugs :)
My hermit day's are done now for a while, snow is almost gone, no leaves yet on the trees but their working on it. And I bought my first plaint for outside just waiting for the ground to warm up a little more. I'm headed for the coast this week, Terry and I are going to take a road trip to see my oldest son's new home that should be fun!
Anyway that's been my week :)

Love & Kisses
Pixie & Junno

Love you guys bunches & bunches

And I got 2 new Achievements!
Leeta's Achieves.png
http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=8302 Earned myself another new mount - Armored Red Dragonhawk
Archy - Decided I would get back to working on the Pandaria Archy Achievements.
Both frustrating and satisfying - frustrating due to size of dig sites and the annoyance of figuring distance but satisfying as the Ancient Haunt that pops up after you do a dig seems to have increased.
Also got few more Achievements :)

For Pleasant Surprises
Hello! Ctrl Alt Wow,
It’s been some time so take a deep breath in preparation for my update.
Herald of the Titans
While leveling my baby rogue Flogalis for the HotT team it didn’t take long for my teeny bags to fill up with junk. Some of the other team members seemed to be busy organizing materials for enchants, glyphs and the like but I was unsure how I could contribute. So, I decided to jump on my level 90 cloth making extraordinaire alt Tennish and craft some bags for us. A quick google search for embersilk cloth drop locations and I was soon off to Twilight Highlands killing mobs and looting. Killing and looting as Leeta would say. I started out running Grim Batol and with each run I was averaging enough matts for one bag. It was a daunting process but I persisted. A few days of this and I stumbled upon an area in the open world of Twilight Highlands where you pull a bunch of mobs at once and the respawn rate was fast. Each group I killed I was picking up 1 stack of embersilk cloth. The only draw back here was they didn’t drop a lot of green items like Grim Batol, which I needed to disenchant for hypnotic dust. So I was crafting the cheapest cloth items from embersilk and disenchanting them. I think it took me about a week all up, but I got there in the end and sent 4 embersilk bags to each HotT member including my baby rogue. So now you can find Flogalis running around the world with 104 slots of junk instead of 30. It seems no matter how big your bags, they are never big enough. Flogalis is level 62 now, only 18 levels to go! I had the pleasure of being ran through Upper Black Rock Spire a few times and Molten Core by Leeta. It was a lot of fun and I looted 3 epic level 60 pieces which coincidentally are pieces which use slots that you can’t buy heirlooms for. It’s nice to run with heirlooms but it’s always a little disheartening to loot an item from a boss that you end up vendoring because you have an heirloom in that slot. I guess we can’t have our cake and eat it too.
Clogalis
Cloggie hasn’t done a lot recently with all the work required to level my baby rogue to 80 as fast as possible. He’s still chasing that elusive head piece he needs to complete his Sunwell Plateau transmog set. A few years ago, I believe before Cataclysm dropped, I was working on the insane title. I had done everything and was killing Booty Bay guards for the rep with the Bloodsail Buccaneers. He did reach Honored with them, I am certain of it now. But the achievement didn’t pop up. At the time I was unsure whether or not there was a required “order” for obtaining the rep. I had submitted a ticket and the gm at the time had not divulged any information of which part I was missing. So I began raising the rep with the Steamwheedle Cartel back to exalted incase I had missed one of them before. This didn’t help either and eventually I gave up. Well, recently I decided to try again but was hindered by a lack of gear to be able to kill the Booty Bay guards. Apparently when MoP dropped, the guards had all eaten their Wheeties. Finally with an average item level of 554 Clog can now take down more than 1 Booty Bay guard at time and live to tell the tale. So I had been working on raising the Bloodsail Buccaneer rep up to Honored. The last time I checked he was only one or two bubbles into unfriendly. It was going to be a long grind ahead, again. Then something strange happened. I logged in the other night was going to run Sunwell for the head piece. As I logged in I saw Ashayo grats somebody so I scrolled up to see what I had missed. There in the chat log were the words I had yearned so long for. I read them a few times to be certain I wasn’t seeing things. Clogalis has earned the achievement [Insane in the Membrane]. I couldn’t believe it. I’m not sure how it happened but perhaps Blizzard had become aware of a bug with the achievement which prevented its completion? Regardless, I now have the title “the Insane”, of course we already knew that right?
As you already know, Leeta has been working on farming the bones required to purchase the dino mount, so I flew over to the Isle of Giants to give lend a hand. We killed a few and I checked my total, 671 so far. I have so many! How many do I need I asked, “Only 9,999” Leeta said.
I also decided to finish up the rep with Emperor Shaohao. Clog was so close, only 6 bubbles away from exalted. I headed up the hill and started killing. It wasn’t long before I became tired of it so I stated in general that I was looking for a rep group. To my surprise I had found one, I had thought everyone else would’ve been done with it by now. This group had a strategy which worked flawlessly. Up the hill, but on the lower plateau, you place one person from the group in each corner of the area and one person in the middle where the ruins are, like the 5 on a dice. So long as you’re geared enough to hold your own there shouldn’t be any problems and you will still be close enough to the other party members to obtain their rep kills too. Those 6 bubbles flew by, I calculated about 1000 rep every 10 minutes. Clog is exalted now and has the Heavenly Golden Cloud Serpent, but soon learned he needs to first be exalted with the Order of the Cloud Serpent before he can ride it. Doh!
Real Life
In real life I’ve progressed a little with my kayak fishing experience. A few months ago I entered a kayak squid fishing tournament. It was the first time I launched into unprotected waters from a beach. Usually I stick to the local river. Safety equipment isn’t a problem, I am pretty diligent with that. A couple of times I did a ‘double take’ as I noticed a large long shadow nearby, (it’s not uncommon to have great whites frequent our beaches from time to tme), only to realize it was the shadow of my kayak. I didn’t win the comp, as I only caught a cuttlefish and no squid. It was however, still an invaluable experience.
For the one that didn’t get away

My week in WoW
Hello Caw crew,

My first email in awhile, and I wanted to apologize for that.  I haven't been around as much as I used to be, but I plan on that changing from now on.  This will be my first of many emails to come!  Not really a lot for me to report this week, I am finally taking my hunter out to Timeless Isle more often.  I really want to get her iLevel higher than what it is now.  She is sitting at 462 and I really would love to get her to at least 540 before the new expansion.  My pally is working on her collecting of gem cuts now also.  I know she should of had all of them by now, but oh well at least I have something fun to do still.  Well that's it for this week, keep up the great work on the show ladies.  Have a great one and as always, Happy Hunting!!  

Eric


Important PS
Dear CtrlaltWow,

I have been lvling my orc male hunter for the last weeks, and it has been great fun. I dinged lvl 78 yesterday so nearly there, fellow Titans! When I hit 80 I will need some help getting the gear.
We are driving back to Oslo today (8 hours drive) after a week in our cottage by the sea. Slow internet there. I had to use the 3G network, so my WoW was a bit slow from time to time.
Oh, and I have decided to buy kayaks for the summer. Thanks to Cloggie for advice on models, Cloggie, our captain at sea :)

For the Horde, and for the Clan of Darkness, love from Ravn

PS: more chat in guildchat, please, and more mumble and more Leeta's coffeshop!

Hello Ctrlaltwow Crew
It has never happened that I write to you 2 weeks in a row but I come bearing a gift.
I won the top 25 in Guild activity competition we had last week in the game. I won an Armored Bloodwing and I thank Donnie for the gift. I already have this mount so I thought I would give it to you Ladies to give away.
You might be able to have a competition of your own and get somebody to make you a new Email bumper.
Anyway I love the new line up. You Ladies are awesome. Have a great week.
Sincerely Matahorn
Ps I must thank Donnie for letting me give away my prize.

Juuno and Pixie Girl!


Hi Aprillian, Leeta, Rogueslayer, Tedrah and all of our awesome wow family!
  Hope everyone is having a awesome week, in an out game!

Sorry nothing to report as far as myself playing the game this past week. Those today I did log on only cause Reprint sent me a message on facebook, saying he was about too hit 90! And wanted me there to see him do it, his first 90 toon, Woot, Congrats Reprint awesome job! So while we were on Dreams came on too and we all went to the Timeless Isles, it was fun and I want to say thank you guys I needed that :)
I've included a picture of Reprint and his new level 90, also sending a picture of my buddy Mstake and his new mount. As long as I've been playing with Moe (Mstake) I didn't know that he had never gotten a dragon until we did this run! Talk about happy he was shouting all about his new mount in guild chat lol
My modem went out so had to get a new one took the company almost a week to get it here, but never the less I did have
some fun this week. Went shopping, yep drove my beautiful red pickup and headed to town, not just one day but four day's all total! With four boy's at home most of the time food just doesn't last, and their all big eaters! Oh and one doctor's app., that I kept even surprised my self on that one I really hate doctors! This was for blood so I got too fast for 12 hours as if that's a big deal, really it's not except not having my coffee in the morning, and the 7am thing! Don't move so well without my coffee and not safe to be around me either, like my husband asked my son one morning. Are you outside your mind, you mom hasn't had her coffee yet, only he didn't say it so nice lol
Well that's it for me if it hadn't been for Reprint you wouldn't have gotten an email from me this week, my mind has been on other things. So trying to play isn't working at this point even with the new modem, but give me another week and I'll be my old self again.

Love & Kisses
Pixie & Juuno
PS Love all of you and knowing your just a click away really is helping, also Big Steve's song is keeping the bad thoughts & evil people from causing me anymore pain. Thanks guys for all you have done and are doing for me.
