The purpose of this blog is to document my joys, frustrations, unique finds and general information pertaining to my experiences playing World of Warcraft.

I did a rare thing this weekend.  I ended up with Sunday and Monday off, not Monday and Tuesday as normal, and, well...

I didn't log into WoW.  Not once.

This is a first for me.  In fact, it's a first in the 3 years since I started playing.  Usually every waking moment I do NOT have to spend cleaning (stop laughing, I at least do the dishes and laundry!), working, running errands, paying bills, etc. for the last three years has usually been filled with World of Warcraft.  I have six 85's to prove it, too.  And a Kingslayer title on my main, Hearthyn.  And 6/7 normal in Firelands.

So, what did I do this weekend?  Well, I rediscovered movies.  I actually struck up a conversation with my boyfriend, Mark.  I even walked outside, in sunlight and everything, and went OUT for a whole day! 

I rarely even checked in with Facebook or Google+.  In other words, other than checking emails from my new smartphone, I basically UNPLUGGED for the weekend. 

I call it Shannon Unplugged. 

And I have to say, it was WONDERFUL! 

But I miss WoW.  I miss my rogue I'm leveling.  I miss raiding, and work isn't going to let me do much of that any time soon.

Oh, yeah...

and I bought Plants vs Zombies for Android.  (Who wants to really unplug anyway, right?  And yes, I have the WoW Armory app, too!)

Have a great week, and don't forget to unplug now and then.  Even if it's only a little bit.

Tuesday Haiku


A valiant fight.

At long last, evil conquered.

Friendly portal home.

Two for Tuesday Haiku

Let me apologize.  I got caught up in training at work last week and completely forgot about Tuesday Haiku.  So, here is a double shot:


Cinnamon spice dreams,

The harvest moon entices

Falling autumn leaves.


My transformation,

Companion at my side and

Together we rest.

 Training is over now.  I should be back to blogging.  Have a great week!

Tuesday Haiku

Long story short, car blah blah blah wouldn't start blah blah blah late for work blah blah blah better late than never:


Sky suddenly red,

Cast shadow looms over me.

Death glides on Death’s wing.
