I suppose you surmised by the title that it is raining. We’ve had quite a bit of it and it is supposed to continue through the weekend.  I know many people who find that rainy days are depressive and glum.  … Continue reading

Keyboards? Well perhaps not everything. After 6 years my keyboard finally kicked the bucket. It was a sad, sad day. My birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks, my keyboard was dying so Nerd Dearest bought me a  … Continue reading

Cold in Texas, WoD Release and Happy Coffee Moments

 Yep, you read that title right.  It’s cold in Texas, WoD released yesterday but at least I have coffee.

The past few days have welcomed an arctic cold front into Texas, making this car-less Nerd’s Wife  walk the Minis to school. It could be worse. I have actually really  enjoyed the extra time before arriving home goofing off with them and discussing their day. They seem to have enjoyed it as well, though they are all praying for snow. That however, is not a new prayer coming from Texas children. That has been a child’s (and my own) plea for as long as this place hasn’t had regular snowfall. Which is…Forever?

Warlords of Draenor released yesterday. I even managed to log in and play for a couple of hours in the morning – afternoon.  Then I logged out so I could go pick up minis. By the time I got home and tried to log myself AND Nerd Dearest (who was almost home from work.) in we were placed in the login que. That was kinda brutal, but then there was so much lag, and I got disconnected from the server so many times, I gave up and snuggled in bed to watch some TV before sleep. I found out later that not only were the WoW Servers unprepared for the masses, they were under pretty heavy DDoS attack.    From what I could tell, I really enjoyed the newest expansion!  I can’t wait to be able to play some more.

And now I return to my coffee and the great search of  CRPO (car replacement possibility options). I wish you all a warm and cozy day!
