What's worse than not having time to play WOW?

For me, that would be having more time than usual to play, but not being able to. We had some very strong storms roll through Chicago on Monday night and I was not only without WOW, but without internet and TV from then until this morning.

The first twelve hours of withdrawal were the worst, as it is with any addiction. There was shaking, sweating, bouts of irrational anger... But then I got a glimpse of how life was before I played WOW. I watched some movies I had been meaning to watch and spent a lot of time unpacking (which is still a work in progress). I now have less boxes in my place than I did before, which is great. All in all it was probably good for me to be forced away from the game for a bit.

But what did I do as soon as I saw I was back up this morning? Well get back in WOW of course! You know what they say, you can take the girl away from the game, but you can't take the game out of the girl. :)


  1. "shaking, sweating, bouts of irrational anger"

    This reminds me of what I am like without coffee.

    So is there anything to those reports of a woman fishing in the Chicago River screaming "where the f*** are the pure water pools?!"?

  2. You're so silly Jess... everyone knows the pure water pools are along the coast of Lake Michigan! :)
