Hi Sleepers!

I\'ve liked that quote for a long time....

Another one.... \"Yeah. I like cake...\"

And I once said to someone out of frustration....\"Strive for the extraordinary, and not for mediocrity like everyone else!\" And then I came to visit him at his office a couple days later and the quote was hanging on his wall. I think that was the biggest compliment anyone has ever given me.

<b>Profession:</b> Stay-at-home mother, writer, sometime office peon
<b>How did you start playing WOW:</b> Friends of ours were already playing WoW on the Horde side, and bought Dimi and I a copy of the game for Christmas.

Gnoname: Didn\'t Bruce Willis say that in Armageddon???

Sorry, not trying to hijack the thread - movie quotes always bug me. For example, <a href=\"http://www.spaceman.ca/sc/index.php?Topic=2117\"> see my Monty Python and the Holy Graile/Princess Bride quote mix-up</a>

How did you start playing WOW: I used to play an online game, Imperial Conflict. A bunch of people from that game began playing and convinced me to pick up a copy.

<b>How did you start playing WOW</b>: A friend of mine is a Blizzard fanboy, and always wanted me to get into regular old Warcraft. Having started out on Starcraft, I could never get into it. I never started on WCII when it came out, but by the time WoW Beta was going on, my friend was like, \"J00 must play this!\" No, no, no, I do NOT play MMOs. Well, I broke down and 2-days after release, I bought it. Been playing since Dec. 9, 2004.
<b>RL Friends</b>: Shikaro, Pennicillin
<b>Pets</b>: Do my kids count?
<b>When I am not playing WOW...</b> I\'m sleeping or doing stuff with the family (happyhappytime with wife > WoW by far). Maybe a <a href=\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_Eats\">cooking show</a> or on occassion <a href=\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4400\">something else on TV</a>.
<b>Favorite beverage</b>: Mt. Dew. Pop open a vein...yellow-green citrus-flavored fluid will pour out. On any night I\'m raiding though, Full Throttle is my drink of choice.

David Politzer, and finally...<a href=\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zhang_Ziyi\">Zhang_Ziyi</a>. However, when I used to have my hair slicked back and wore only a goatee, a russian lady who works here always used say, \"Anthony, you know, you look like famous Russian. You look like Lenin.\" /shakeshead
<b>Passion in life</b>: I must create. I must create something. I have no capentry skills, no carving skills (except for on a turkey or a chicken), and no painting skills. I write. I code. I dream.
<b>Favorite Nintendo game</b>: Never owned one (was more of a Sega fan), but I could play Ninja Gaiden for hours.
<b>Geeking out</b>: Do I still need to cover this part? I think the above takes care of that (including the fact I barely can go two sentances without a hyperlink).

<b>Oddest characteristic</b>: I contradict myself...a lot. However, I will do my best to appologize for it as soon as I realize I\'ve done it.

Just wanted to mention that in respect for everyone\'s privacy, I have marked this post as readable only by logged-in guild members. I imagine that some of us don\'t have a problem revealing RL information to our guildies but would prefer that Google and other <a href=\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_crawler\">web spiders</a> not disseminate it across the rest of the internet for their coworkers/business clients/etc. to see.

That said: Veranne, since you started this thread, please let me know if you disagree with this and I\'ll change it back. Smile
