Haven't felt much like writing lately -- not just posting here on LJ, but responding to other people's posts and email, as well as working on other creative endeavors as well -- and I'm not sure if that's because I'm using up all my writing-brain at work, because I had the flu and then strep throat, or because it's winter and I am not getting enough hours of daylight.

Gosh, I don't suppose it might be all three, do you?

Played a lot of WoW yesterday and Friday. Did a lot of khorium farming to get my super-nifty engineering gun built, but I think I may be done with Outlands and ready to play in Northrend now.

Today was sunny and warm and we opened up the windows and aired out the house. I cleaned up my library. Robb dyed his hair blue. Feeling better. More snow will fall, I'm sure, but spring is coming.

Wow note.

I wouldn't particularly worry about crafting any gear if you're about to hit Northrend - likely there's a smoking quest reward that will replace it in the first zone.

There's a huge gear inflation bump there.

That is - if you haven't already made it... I think my brain parsed your sentence incorrectly...

And I admit, economically speaking, I should probably have just sold the khorium on the AH for lots of cash. But the gun is one of the really nifty things you can make with Engineering, and optimal spec or not, I wanted to make one for the cool factor of having made myself a purple gun. PEW PEW PEW!

Oh, I know. But I checked wowhead first, and once you take into account what's going on with gem sockets on that and the goggles I have, it appears to still beat out anything that's available for quite a few levels.

Plus it is AWESOME.

(But shopping around for quest rewards, I *definitely* am not bothering with upgrading any of the rest of my gear.)
