wow? wow...

I walked away from World of Warcraft shortly after hitting 60. I'm only human. That, and I was actually a human paladin, which should explain why the game stopped being fun.

I'll never forget when I finally discontinued my subscription, because a benign questionnaire asked me my reason for quiting. In this country, we put a lot of emphasis on not quitting. I think this makes us try harder to come up with a good excuse to quit -- hence the multitude of options for why I'd be canceling my WoW subscription.

I don't remember the exact wording, but after passing up "Financial difficulties" and "Military service," I settled on "Addiction."

Make no mistake, I wasn't addicted, but it seemed like a good answer. Certainly better than "Finally got a girlfriend."

Anyway, after submitting the form, I was comforted with an apologetic message from Blizzard telling me that they sympathized with my problem. And they offered -- only when I was ready to balance my "WoW life" with my "real life" -- to gladly take me back as a member. Sweet.

That was over a year ago. Imagine my surprise when I found this in the mail last week:

I never did get to play Burning Crusade... ride a flying mount... hit 70...

Oh Blizzard, you're good -- too good.

She was excessively amused by his solemn air and puckered mouth, and set him down at once as fair game.. The Governor, prompted by Isaacs, said, The Honorable Mr.. He was lying in his little coffin, his hands folded: there were candles all about, and, in short, it was just like the time of little Otto's death, which shocked me so profoundly.. Do you know, William, that although I did not plan it, there could not have been a better way to begin your sailing education.. I removed my glasses, and looked with my eyes at the wife.. He did not know what injury she might have sustained; She might have been seriously hurt, if not actually killed.. My spectacles regulated my ambition, and I early learned that there were better gods than Plutus.. There was a long pause.. Please stop! The imputation that the road was not wide enough for him to turn was too much for Mr.. We learn that the repression which, though originally expedient, terminates nevertheless in a harmful rejection of inhibition and of psychic domination, is so much more easily accomplished with reminiscences than with perceptions, because in the former there is no increase in occupation through the excitement of the psychic sensory organs.. Thus, some one dreamt that he had written a comedy which embodied a definite motif ; it was being performed; the first act was over amid enthusiastic applause; there was great clapping.. Auchmuty came to her in pity for poor Ingham, who was so bored by the stupid pundit--and Auchmuty could not understand why I stood it so long.. He had barely creaked the pump handle when Mr.. Here, divesting myself of my clothes (for there is no reason why we cannot die as we were born), I threw myself headlong into the current; the sole witness of my fate being a solitary crow that had been seduced into the eating of brandy-saturated corn, and so had staggered away from his fellows.. But this hallucination, unless it were maintained to the point of exhaustion, proved incapable of bringing about a cessation of the desire and consequently of securing the pleasure connected with gratification.. The vanquished, not daring to refuse, pocketed the coin, and slunk away amid the jeers of a score of villagers who had been drawn to the scene.. Oh, see! exclaimed Miss Lydia, nudging his arm, and pointing to her program.. If this explanation brings the dream into line with the formation of psychical disease, it becomes the more important to fathom the essential conditions of processes like dream building.. Get up! exclaimed Mr.. Well, what's he good for? Well, Smiley says, easy and careless, he's good enough for one thing, I should judge--he can outjump any frog in Calaveras county...
