About Me

“It’s all fun and games until someone loses durability.”

I am a geologist-for-hire and a guild leader.

I have been playing Warcraft for several years now and have had the pleasure of running (and being run by!) my very own raiding guild for more than half of that time.

WoW has seen me through many of the trials and tribulations of my life. Sometimes it has been a crutch, or even a parachute, the tiredly cliched “light in dark places” for me while aspects (and sometimes the entirety!) of my life have (or has, pick your tense) travelled up said creek with only said device to hand.  And sometimes it has sent me there.

My guild is so much of my world, and so is my science that I am practically inable to seperate the two, and indeed I find strong paralells between them.  Guild “dramaz” and their solutions find interesting and even uncanny counterparts in the supposedly ‘real world’ life that I live.

So for better or for worse, for good or for awesome, I have vowed to maintain a log of my musings, a blotter sheet of the crimes against sanity that both guild-leading and field geology have driven me to.

    As a female WoWer/guildleader myself, I’d like to say I really really enjoy your blog. I stumbled upon it by accident, and I’m glad I did. Rant on!

    A blogging guildie of mine (You Yank It, You Tank It: Blog of a Tanking Death Knight Lady is her blog) linked to your blog and I’ve been trolling around on various blogs, seeing what this blogging thing is all about. I didn’t realize at first that you were on the server I know call home (yay ThoBro!). I transferred over from Scarlet Crusade in July and have quite enjoyed my time here so far. Anywho, props on the nice blog you got going on. I like your writing style and the designer in me is trying to figure out how you got the blog looking as spiffy as it does…I know nothing of web design.
