I have no intentions of leaving the house, and we’re not getting any trick or treaters this year. So I just dressed Mozzie up instead, as a Beanie Baby.
I write for the blog for Azeroth Adoption Agency, which is WoW guild that’s devoting to helping people adopt out in game pets. One of the things I do is write the Throwback Thursday stuff. It’s pretty basic: Leeeroy Jenkins, Illegal Danish, Kazzak does Stormwind, etc. Well, coming up soon is a Blizzcon feature, and it got me thinking.
Why nto share some photos here? They’re not the same as the ones I shared there (with one exception), and I have plenty of photos. So here they are!

I got my Terky!
Terky was only available in Taiwan as part of the iCoke promotion originally, but now he’s available to everyone. At least, I think all servers can get him. His egg is hiding out in Borean Tundra, in the Riplash ruins (all the way to the south). You have to go to the north east most tip of the ruins, and fall into the water. There’s a crack of a cave entrance down a ways that lets you into the cave his egg is in.
On Cenarius, this place is a madhouse. I don’t know if they just lumped us with a dozen other servers or what, but there must have been 200 people there. Everyone and their molten corgi made it worse by deploying every toy they could to clutter things up. I was really lucky in that I snagged it in about 5 minutes of waiting.
Holy crap! 4 books, and 3 short stories in a month. That’s pretty good for me this year. Definitely the most I’ve read in several months. Two were “Pick My Next Read” for the Carpe Librum group on Swap Bot, but the rest were my choice. Nothing earth shattering here, but all were reasonably enjoyable.
