The interwebs is a funny place sometimes. We interact with each other through various mediums, whether it be on Facebook, our favorite MMO or social game, etc. It seems as though we’re constantly plugged into something terrestrial or otherwise. Granted, on the internet its a lot easier to hide behind your avatar and create your own world leaving details out wherever appropriate. Take this interaction between a Twitter follower as well as a RealID friend:
We’ve ran dungeons together, goofed off on RealID together and tweeted back and forth for about six months or so. How did he miss this detail about lil’ ole me? Better yet, why does everyone associate someone that plays video games as a slovenly, idle, pale, mouth breathing slob? Yes, those types are definitely out there, but with the emergence of social gaming and mainstreaming of games like Warcraft, more people have assess to them. Which probably means that your Grandma may be out there pwnin noobs and taking down raid bosses and you’d be totally oblivious to it.
So who is your gamer ego? Mine? Personal Trainer by day, fire throwing Mage by Warcraft.
A few days ago Harpy’s Nest wrote about Emoting in PvP and Navi did too. So Tomie came along to smack some PvP emoters with her purse.
Well, I’ve been after the stupid shield from Jaina in End Times and jumping into specific queue daily hoping and praying for Azure Dragonshrine. As we’re pulling the trash packs and collecting the pieces to her staff, I notice this mage has a freaking emote chain for every killshot. And for some reason the tank is pulling every single trash pack. No joke for all sixteen of her shards its this or an equally stupid variation:
And insult to injury the shield didn’t drop and I was all, “OMG, get me outta here” even though I’d normally stay. Because two more bosses of that? HELL TO THE NO!
As some of you noticed by my AMG SQUEEE-age on Twitter and the ever-so-obvious change in URL, I finally came up with a domain name and shuffled everything on over! It was something that I was intending to do for a while now but I couldn’t come up with a name that was succinct and to the point and that was available. So after a 30 minute brainstorm with the greatest Chiropractor in the world we came up with Closet Dork and *gasp* it was available for purchase. Also, to whoever owns Closetnerd.com and wanted 700 bucks for it, you’re mean!
At any rate, this is my new home! So please change your links and keep your eyes peeled for some mo’ fun!
I’ve been attempting to avoid having to do one of these but I just realized that I’ve been
suckerpunched twice with this meme. I’m looking at you Euphyley and Bulidar!! Rather than ignoring this, I suppose I’ll get it done.
Go into your image folder
Open the sixth sub-folder and choose the sixth image.
Publish the image! (and a few words wouldn’t hurt, though I dare say I couln’t stop a blogger from adding a few words of their own).
Challenge six new bloggers.
Link to them.
Totally ‘mogged out in Mage Valorous before killing Mr. Bigglesworth for old times sake. This was taken while running into Naxx to grab a few screenies for Day 4 of the 20 day Challenge: My Best WoW Memory.

During an excellent End Time run where healers could heal, dps pewpewed hard, tank hit stuff really hard and best of all every one got along and had friendly conversation.
We all were like, “amg, hahhahaha!” The boss was like, “OMG, I’M DEAD HERE IS YA LOOTS!” And then I left the dungeon, was in slash-2 and wanted to jump off a bridge.
