Jul 26th 2007 7:18AM Yay! Please?
Jun 27th 2007 8:42AM Coming back from vacation, my boyfriend and I were stuck in the (packed) Ft. Lauderdale airport for seven hours. Yay free wireless and being nerdy enough to haul both of our laptops on vacation with us! We camped out on the floor near an outlet and *always* had people watching us questing/farming. No one else admitted to playing WoW, though we did have to explain the game to quite a few people.

Apr 19th 2007 9:15AM I consider myself a gamer girl, though before WoW I stuck mostly with table-top RPGs. In college, I dated a guy for almost two years. He lived 45 minutes away and worked most weekends, so we spent maybe four days a month together--the rest of the time was spent chatting on the phone or on IM. He eventually left me because even that limited amount of contact was cutting into his City of Heroes time.
Fast forward two years, and I start seeing another guy who's also into gaming. WoW looked intriguing, but I was still turned off of MMORPGs due to the ex's actions. About two months into the new relationship, I find out that the guy had also been playing CoH, but cancelled his account immediately when he found out about my ex.
Realizing true love when I see it, I promptly began playing WoW, have fallen in love with it, and have a lvl 64 (+ numerous alts) since I began playing in November. My boyfriend and I play together and alone when we have time, and having a shared passion is pretty awesome.
Marriage might be in our future, though nothing solid has been determined, and I don't see this hobby going away any time soon. And for the person who asked about outside responsibilities: I work full-time and am working towards my masters degree, and he's doing his medical residency working 70 to 90 hours a week. Warcraft is our decompression time, because we certainly don't have the energy to go out on the town like so-called "normal" people. :)
Mar 21st 2007 3:53PM My main is unique--it's the full name of the main character for my thesis novel for graduate school. An alt with another character name is also unique, along with the two alts named after the two novel title possibilities.
I'm looking forward to being told in a year or two when the book is published, "Hey! I love that book too!"
Mar 21st 2007 1:55PM Two locks in my guild headed straight into MC after we finished a LBRS run the other weekend. I think they got bored before finishing the first batches of trash mobs, but the running commentary in guildchat was pretty amusing.
Mar 20th 2007 2:34PM @ Elizabeth: Don't you dare compare Nihilum to the brilliance that is Calvin and Hobbes. :D They would probably just bring the standards to GROSS down.
@ all: There are all-female guilds out there. The difference is, they were created as a safe-space for women, to allow female gamers to escape the ridiculousness that other gamers (like the guys in Nihilum, perhaps?) cause by not knowing how to deal with a member of the opposite sex. So what if women cause drama even if they don't do anything? You've pretty much said that it's not the woman's fault. So the problem is not that Nihilum is discriminating--the problem is their reasoning behind it.
Mar 20th 2007 10:38AM I used to not really care about raiding or world firsts (casual play ftw!). But since I found out yesterday that Nihilum won't let women join their guild?
Go Death & Taxes!
