B-day!  
Yesterday (as of 18 minutes ago) was my birthday. I am now 23-years-old. I don't feel any different from 22-years-old, although I am one year closer to that 24-years-old that has always seemed to be 'grown-up' to me.

I had a nice, mellow day. Adam and Amalie joined us for supper (Mum's spaghetti and a Dairy Queen blizzard cake, both very excellent). Adam and Amalie got me a WOW game card and the Wrath of the Lich King expansion pack, which is nifty. I'm so broke, I couldn't afford a subscription lately, so that was very cool. From my parents I got a new lightbox (Dad accidentally sent mine to Value Village) for costuming and a beautiful butterfly bedecked portfolio to put said costuming in. I also got a Casino Royale DVD and a Gift Card for Jumbo Video rentals, much nail polish, The Princep's Fury by Jim Butcher and a gorgeous leather make-up case for all my beauty stuff. Plus money. Money is always good.

Ama and Stacey are coming again later in the week for a girls' party. Stacey had to work tonight and couldn't come.

Thanks to everyone who wished me well and/or gifted me! I really appreciate it.

Yay! Welcome to the "I'm-23-but-don't-really-feel-any-older" Club! And happy belated birthday.

The only thing I can say about being 23 is when I went and bought a pack of cigarettes this morning, the woman behind the counter waved my ID away and said: "No, I remember you. The one who looks too young."

Yep. That's me. 23 and I still look like I'm 15.

Thanks!

I've always looked old for my age. Cool when you're younger, not so much when you're older. :-D

Thank you!

I did have the free trial awhile back, so I'm quite excited to be able to pwn around on my Death Knight some more.

You're welcome!

I rolled a Death Knight to test one out, those things are powerful.

The first time I did an escort quest on my own, I was like 'hell's yes!'. They are awesome. They opening quests for them are really fun, too. Except for all the massacring of innocents. It made feel kind of guilty. You know, until they repopped, 10 seconds later.
Gus The Moose: Housegusthemoose on June 2nd, 2009 09:40 pm (UTC)
I felt so guilty doing that quest not because I was massacring innocents but because I was laughing about it. Which is terrible. Terrible.

Hehe. Amalie always says 'they're just pixels, Taylor', so don't feel bad. I'm just a wuss like that. When everyone started screaming as I approached, I was like 'I'm sorry! I'm going to hurt you!'. Those enraged citizens who try to attack you are hilarious, though.
Gus The Moose: Mythbustersgusthemoose on June 2nd, 2009 10:28 pm (UTC)
Sure, they're just pixels, but they're screaming and cowering pixels and I feel doubly guilty because my main character is a Paladin and Death Knights are like the exact opposite of that.

Thank you!

I follow my brother and sister-in-law-to-be around on WOW, so I've been on a few servers over time. I started out on Ravencrest, then moved to Auchindoun, Blood Furnace, and then Nazgrel lately. Now I've been informed I have to go back to Blood Furnace. I wish they would make up their minds!

My main on Nazgrel is Avellia. She's a dranei mage.
