Yet another reason why I shouldn't be a parent.

First off (and may I say, this is very off topic), did you know that there is such a thing as a 'professional shredder'? No joke, one just stepped into the office, asking where he needed to go. It took all of my will-power not to glance at the pile of paper on top of my shredder and offer him to have a go at my stuff.

But, uh, I don't think that's what he meant. I mean, I HOPE not. Because if that really is a job somewhere, I wanna know how much it pays an hour and if they have benefits!

Anyway, as I was... It's Orphan Week in WoW and I've heard gossipy stories about people carting around orphans as their pets and killing them in all these horrible ways. Naturally, this made me want my own orphan to drown, maim, and otherwise destroy to only have it come back so I could do it again!

But alas, after taking my own orphan around VC (an instance in WoW), it seems that he's just like any other pet, but with a question mark over his head (for quests). Apparently, there was only musing of all these things you could do to the kids, and the 'telephone effect' caused it to sound as if you really could do some messed up stuff.

I suppose this is yet another one of those "P/C" things. I mean, burning kids with AOEs? I guess that probably sends out some bad message or something. Just like, even though it would make logical sense, you can't skin humanoids. The world is odd.

Oh well, at least carting the kid around town got me five gold.

    I really tried to get the 50 books read in one year goal... but yeah, 2009 was pretty busy mostly sucking. (Though, yes, some fabulous things did…

    Just finished Turn Coat by Jim Butcher. It took me awhile to finish this, actually. The beginning was a bit slow, but the second half was very well…

    If you're not caught up on How I Met Your Mother, don't watch this! Also... I so need a Barney LJ icon.
