Apr 4th 2012 2:52PM I got a reply from Fox! (Giddy schoolgirl glee!) Okay, seriously, thanks Fox - that's a little more encouraging. I guess I'm just hoping priests are still a work in progress. I'm sad that I'm far more excited about the changes to my "main alt" (a holy paladin) than the ones for my main (my priest.)
Apr 4th 2012 2:29PM All these changes sound rather meh to me. I love my shadow priest right now. I don't want her to change. Granted, I'm playing more as disc right now (was disc for the start of T11, shadow for the second half of T11, shadow for all of T12, and back to disc for T13 - we had an abundance of healers in Firelands, but we've lost them now, so back to healing for me). I really enjoy the way shadow plays right now - I don't want to have to essentially learn an entirely new class! I like topping the damage metres when playing against similarly geared players. I like providing replenishment.
With all the changes to disc and shadow, I wonder if my priest will remain my main in MoP. :\
Apr 3rd 2012 8:48PM Don, I guess that's what happens when the YouTube video doesn't load and I assume it's not Great Big Sea. Oops.
Apr 3rd 2012 6:33PM Gros Morne is amazing. Absolutely gorgeous. :) Definitely worth a visit.
There's a bridge along one of the hiking trails in the park that my husband's engineering reserve unit built.
Apr 3rd 2012 6:04PM Actually, it's the Acadians (mostly from Nova Scotia and New Brunswick) who moved down to New Orleans. At least that's what all of my Canadian history has told me. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acadians
Apr 3rd 2012 6:02PM Ugh. Edmonton. Lived there last year. Was not a fan. Now I'm back in Southern Ontario, where we had 27C weather two weeks ago! Now it's much more reasonable, with 14C. Had a very mild winter overall - I can only fear we will get hammered next year. :\
Apr 3rd 2012 6:00PM My husband grew up in Mount Pearl!
Apr 3rd 2012 5:56PM Wow, I'm amazed at all the Newfies here! My husband is a Newfoundlander. No accent though - the military has drummed it out of him. ;)
Apr 3rd 2012 5:55PM If we are going to talk Newfie music, we have to listen to Great Big Sea:
Apr 3rd 2012 5:53PM My husband is originally from Newfoundland. I should point him towards WoW Insider today, to show him just what the rest of the world thinks of Newfoundland.
Of course, he loves to tease me about how shocked I was the first time I visited Newfoundland. (Born and spent the elementary school years of my life in Winnipeg, did junior and high school in Ottawa, university in Guelph, and then back to Ottawa to work.) I was totally shocked at: a) the multi-coloured houses as we pulled into Port aux Basques having taken the ferry across from Nova Scotia and b) how everyone kept calling me "my love" and "me dear." Totally freaked me out. And, I hope this doesn't sound racist (because it's not intended to be) but I thought it was very cool that some "visible minorities" had Newfie accents - clearly second- or third-generation Newfoundlanders, so they had the Newfie accent, but were not Caucasian.
My husband, being military, has lived all over Canada, so lost his Newfie accent a long time ago - a bit of it comes out when he's drunk, but it's not terribly heavy. His mother and sister, on the other hand, definitely have the accent. He does, however, use some "Newfie-isms" some of which I've picked up. Like the use of "bags" to mean "a lot" of something.
