A Gromling is not just for Christmas
Hello all,

Sorry for  making such a mess with the Gromling competition! Seriously, it was reward enough just to have my email read out. Perhaps you can set a follow up competition for the last Gromling, the poor thing needs a home soon or will be feeling left out. Perhaps, my prize instead could be setting the competition? Well if I was given the opportunity, due to my love of fishing at the moment, my competition would be for people to submit their best fishing stories in Azaroth. It could be a true story or a tall story.

For example, my latest exploits was all do  with a shiny gold fishing pole with wings. I fished this up in the garrison and was so excited. It looked so much better than
the Kal'uak fishing pole that I currently had, and much better buffs on it as well. Was delighted. I boasted about it in guild and for the whole night fished away happily. But the following day, it was gone! Nooooo, I thought, I have only gone and vendered it - being the goofball that I am, this happens quite regularly! So I go back to the Vendor, look at the buy back. Nothing! I moan in guild, gnash my teath .. howl and cry. Luckliy I had banked my old pole and not sold it, so at least I had something. It was then someone pointed out to me that the golden pole in question had a 1 day duration - which I had not read. Doh! I fealt so silly. Luckily the next day I fished up another of those golden winged poles and made sure I made full use of it before it disappeared on me again!

Well I am looking forward to time walking tomorrow, now have 4095 badges so plan to grind those dungeons to get one of the mounts this weekend. I only joined wow halfway through Mists, so the dungeons will also be new to me and being a Mistweaver no long queue times. I can't wait!

Keep the podcasts rolling in, makes my Monday afternoons bearable at work!


By fire be purged
So this week the town where I lived burned so far four people are dead a lot of crops,houses and animals have suffered under the gaze of Ragnaros today marked 14 days in a row that I have worked and the next day off is at least a week away. Inside of game I really haven't had time to play I played and beaten both the new normal wings of the explorers league hearthstone and it's a real blast. Sorry for the lack of audio but smoke has got me all runny and stuffed up I went to one of the local pubs to do my RSA (Responsible service of alcohol) and found out today that I won't be finishing it off. So once again it's been a pretty standard week Big G signing out.

For the Horde

For the Alliance

For the Sandgrophers

And for all the crap that his year has finally come to a end.  

This week
From Alisaunder,
Hello Ladies
This week my friends decided we all needed new alts on a PvP server!  No heirlooms, no gear or bags from alts. Roughing it!
They've gotten the Alliance bug and so one is Worgen, one Panda and I'm your token elf druid.
We just lady night were able to actually group up as a result and after getting all the trainers we were stumped, because they decided that we will do Lore Master on these alts and at level, so we need ed to level lock at 20.
We were of course, broke, but I happened to catch a guy looking for guild signatures in Trade and hustled us over there for a much appreciated 250 gold each. After I added his alt in he gave me another 40 gold and we were kicked out.
Safely level locked, we ran several dungeons,  did a bunch of quests in Westfall and they have been exploring the fun of pvp battlegrounds. I did warn them to lock at 19 but they didn't understand why at the time.
I'm looking forward to some pvp myself. That's about it, didn't have much time for pet battle week but I did get two more to 25 and a lot of fishing in.
For Azeroth!
