I have determined my new favorite way of logging in. Logging into my guild and seeing "Congrats on making it to round 2 Kare!" from JD of the Amateur Azerothian. He happens to be in my guild and is an awesome guy (and I'm not just saying that because he's a judge!). So I ran over to his round 1 finalists post and yup! There I am! I was number 12. Yay!
So, I dug around yesterday morning and came up with an outfit for round 2 which I'm now farming. (I actually have all pieces but 1, the shoulders. Those are going to be a PAIN.) I even got the weapon we're basing it off 1st try. Woot woot! I do know I can use a mogging program to do this but I'm going to try to get the outfits together instead. More fun for me that way :D
This weekend, we took a couple swings at H Ultraxion. Not nearly as annoying as H Warlord Z. That makes me want to curl up in a fetal position and cry. I felt bad because my head wasn't in the game. I kept trying to focus but my attention was immediately drawn to something else. And I kept having a hard time with in game depth perception. When we were doing the Hour of Twilight heroics I was really screwing up left and right. When I was mage-ing it up, my DPS was really awful. When I was healing, I just kept spamming heals because I couldn't handle the way things were moving.
It got worse when we went to do Firelands on Sunday. Drives me crazy when I can't tell where things are. Go go, standing in the fire! I spent all day Sunday working on either my warrior's blacksmithing or farming for my round 2 transmog set. (Because I'm on a new server and ZOMG I NEED CRAFTERS. Or something OCD like that.) My warrior's blacksmithing is at 200 right now, so yay. I can go back out and start leveling again. She's level 50 now. I don't know where she was when I left her. (EDIT: Apparently 48.)
Anyway. I realized I didn't cap my guild exp last week so now I'm behind the husband. :( Booooo. I did get capped last night so yay there. Halfway to exalted (I think).
And now, I must get to work. It's been quiet the last few days. Which is very nice but I think it's going to pick up now. So, I will leave you with a picture of my office cat. Who was asleep but the second I started moving around did this:
