Contest Ongoing send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us how you play WoW, either as an altaholic or dealing with it in your family life to being placed in a drawing for a WoW Pet or an Authenticator.
Juuno and Pixie Girl!
Good afternoon Aprillian, Leeta, Beth, Tedra & Grand Nagus :)
Hope everyone is kicking butt on the game and is life!
Not much to report this week, as far as the game goes, mostly been working on my farm and of course the Darkmoon Fair. No luck yet getting any pets from Moonfang or the much hated Jeremy the weasel as sweet Leeta calls him. But sooner or later one of them will drop a pet right Leeta?
Other then that mostly working on getting my house ready to paint when the weather warms up, omg can't wait until I hear birds singing and can open my windows!! Oh and am very excited, my oldest son (Jimmie) will be here next week! His wife and son will be coming later maybe in June, now just to see about getting Junno up here! My son will be living closer to the coast so lots of day trips this summer, the best part playing with my little grandson :)
Which brings me too a little bit of a problem, next Friday, will be doing the Lich King at Reprints request. Since my son will be here and has plans for Saturday renting his (apartment) not sure how long I'll get to be on. And I might be just a little late, but if I am please do not wait for me go and have fun! It's all about all of you not me and this is the way I want it seeing you guys have fun and hearing all about your adventures makes me happy.
Anyway tonight unless Junno has and ach. she wants to work on which won't take long, have had some requests for the Timeless Isles. So lets just get together and kill stuff!
Clan of Darkness ii is moving right along, this past week Hartnell took 1st place :) And I decided that he should have an award, so sent him a pet. Think that he has decided pet battling might be fun lol Oh and where are you Mata I miss you! And this week picture attached :) Aprillian, Leeta & me
Pixie & Junno
For the horde & Clan of Darkness
PS. I called my son in Las Vegas and had him listen to Big Steve's song, I think he now understands that we are a family. He said that it touched him deeply to see other's might love his mother. He also said to tell Big Steve thank you for showing that in his song.

Intro and contribution :)
In real life my name is Jess, although on WoW I’m known by friends and Guildies as Gypsy. I just recently started listening to WoW podcasts, and as I do everything related to WoW, I did it obsessively. Lol, my hands down favorite is ‘Corpse Run Radio’ with Crt-Alt-Wow running a close second. Corpse Run is so unique and fun and Juuno is just doing a wonderful job on it. Crt-Alt-Wow I love because I can relate. The wonderful ladies on there are as crazy about alts, pets, and WoW as I am, and of about the same age… wonderful. I do like to listen to a few others, and actually in my main guild I am now in charge of rating podcasts and posting on our forums what I love about what podcast. This is new, and although requested only has two posts up so far. I’m the kind of person that can’t say anything bad at anyone, so it is a bit one-sided and I only seem to be talking about the podcasts I love, and not even mentioning the ones I didn’t like so much. :D
That being said, I have 10 alts on my main server, Madoran, and I’m a contributor and officer of the guild Warcraft Pets, we also have the wonderful Warcraftpets.com website which I’ve been a member and community participant for years. I do thing obsessively: Alts, so many I had to delete some I never leveled to have room for more (most have Gypsy somewhere in the name), pets (I now have 514 unique, and 539 total), and mounts 77 (this is new, and I should be jumping that number very quickly).
After listening to your podcast I realized that I wanted to become a part of your community; I’m a bit shy, so it took me a while to muster the courage, but this morning I made a toon on Earthen Ring (Gypsymoon), and have started to level her. While requesting to join the guild; I was talking to Rogueslayer while changing to some heirlooms, which aren’t hunter heirlooms, I’ll have to fix that… Anyway, I kept calling the podcast Ctrl-Alt-Delete… so I’m sure she thinks I’m a complete dimwit… I’m hoping this email shows I’m not, although I am admittedly a horrible multi-tasker.
Something about myself: I’m married and going to school to become an Elementary School Teacher. I am 41 years old, and have 4 amazing kids. They are aged: Jacob, 14; Rachel, 13; Hunter, 4; and Danny, 3. You can find me on Facebook by searching for Jessica Haskin Metz, or by my email email@example.com. This is also associated with my real ID, and I gladly accept friend requests (don’t let my battle tag name fool you - I had changed it so my son, Jacob, could play on his account without being embarrassed by my old battle tag which was ‘Gypsy’… unfortunately he has quit playing and I’m stuck with his name as my battle tag, lol: JacobRisch99 #1404
Anyway, I hope this is enough for an initial contribution, with many more to come in the future. I look forward to finding a place in your community.
Here is a question for you:
Which one of your alts would you go on a date with, and why?
I hate subject lines
To the C-A-W crew:
I've been thinking of emailing in for a bit now, and figured I should get over myself and do it already.
I've been playing WoW since the end of Lich King. I started with a hunter, got her to level 30-someodd, and gave up on that. I had friends on a server so of course I started with them, but I mostly soloed. It was an RP server, and soon after another friend talked me into starting a priest so she could tank for me I got pulled into the RP ("What do you mean people RP on a video game?! How?!! There's no dice or stat systems!" ...little did I know.)
WoW and the friends I made there helped me through a rough patch - divorce and uncertainty and craziness, oh my! - but when I started a job that destroyed my free time and social life I took a while off.
Fast-forward to the new job and a better outlook on life. I get to listen to whatever I want while I work, but music wasn't cutting it and audiobooks were too spendy to be buying four or five per week. I remembered a really enjoyable podcast I used to listen to ages ago (knitting, tyvm!) and I decided to try those out. I've found a few now that I listen to, but yours feels like sitting down with friends and just chatting. Yay for the backlog of 'casts, since I listen for between 6-8 hours a day!
Recently, a few arty friends started a guild, and while I love to play with them they aren't online often. I was hoping I could maybe carve myself out a little unobtrusive corner in your part of the world. Be forewarned though: I may seem shy at first but once you get to know me you'll likely be wondering how to shut me up!
-Rain (who doesn't yet have a toon on Earthen Ring.)
For the Horde, and for the yarny-bits!

Hello, to my friends at Ctrl-Alt-Wow.
I have listened to the podcast for quite awhile now, and although we haven't been formally introduced, I feel like I am part of the family already. I am Zaftig, Tauren Warrior, of the Earthen Ring. ER was my first server when I started playing way back in vanilla, and I was very happy to find out you all were there. It's like going full circle, back to basics.
I have had my mains on several servers now, leaving ER to chase a dream on Scarlet Crusade, to finally having my 10 level 90's on Hyjal. I have raided hardcore four nights a week back in the day, but now I prefer to spend time with my wife and three daughters, and enjoy the vast world of Warcraft much more mellowly.
So to my reason for writing: I need you. You are what my game time lacks, the camaraderie and familial aspects I miss terribly. I want to come home to Earthen Ring, and get to know my guildies for who they are, not for how much DPS they can pump out. I want to have fun.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I love to love the show.
Gus (Zaftig, and a gaggle of other aliases)
Hello from Hartnell
Well turns out a marathon of CAW episodes you've missed can have some side effects. For example, I'm not usually known for singing Janet Jackson songs but at least time is flying by and I'm having fun. Why I'm mumbling about the lovely little e-mails might be harder to explain but so be it! It's worth it because my farming is much faster now that I collect up all the invading vermin and AOE them and have bought the plow that was waiting for me ever since I hit exalted. Thanks for the tips, CAW circa 2012!
Well, the RNG gods had some fun with me recently when I went on a LFR spree. Had my tier 14 shoulders drop. Great, that's an upgrade, let's get those enchanted. Oh look, it's my tier 15 shoulders. Haha, oh well. Let's get those enchanted. Hmm. Shall I give the first part of Seige of Orgrimmar a shot? Why not? Oh wow heh... shoulder armor. Look at that. Bonus roll? Sure! AHHH same shoulder armor!!! Look RNG gods, I know as an Orc my shoulders are quite prominent, but there are other parts of my body that need protection. Thank you.
Big shout out to Pixiegirl! Not only has she been a friendly and welcoming presence throughout the week in CoD but she generously gave me a level 10 Death Talon Whelpguard for Hartnell's contribution to leveling CoD ii. Another big shout out to Duvessae. I logged in Thursday morning and, after having enough coffee to notice I had mail, I was shocked upon opening it. To welcome me to the guild obsession with pet battles, Duvessae had sent me nine new pets for my collection! I was stunned!
Pixiegirl and Duvessae: you made my week. You really did. I hope that I'll be able to match your generosity as a member of Clan of Darkness.
Well that'll do it for this week. Be well everyone.
For the Horde, For the Clan of Darkness and For the TARDIS,
Once again I have waited till you are starting to record before doing my own audio

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.
Ps I must thank Donnie for letting me give away my prize.
