When you've grown tired of running up to monsters in World of Warcraft, killing them and taking their treasure - you wouldn't think you could get tired of this, but sometimes you do - there are other things you can do. Like fishing. Part of this one quest was to catch 20... I don't know, 'blumper fish' or something, I dunno, it's not real, god!
So my little night elf character took her fishing rod and stood on a rock overlooking the harbour somewhere in Ashenvale and I tried to catch blumper fish, or whatever they're called. The float sort of jiggled a bit, and then you had to press 'J or something (I'm being vague today, apologies, but, you know...*) and catch the fish. Only you had to get the timing just right, or you miss the fish and have to start again. And this went on for an hour, and then suddenly I went JESUSI'MWASTINGMYLIFE and hurled my laptop against the wall and ran down to the park and learned how to electric boogaloo.
No, actually I realised I was fishing in the wrong spot, and moved down a bit and caught loads after that.
I've got a second character called Moosey (he's a Tauran, which is a kind of minotaur) who I named as a joke when I was showing Jim who plays City of Heroes which SUCKS in comparison to WOW. I was going to call the chararacter 'Moosey McMoosington' but it was too long, which was a shame. Anyway, Moosey started out as a joke, but I'm quite fond of him now, and he's nearly 14th level. He's got the skill 'Leatherworking', so quite often, when I've killed loads of monsters and skinned them (using my 'Skinning' skill), I can make sandals, and quite a nice bag.
I've got loads of work on by the way. I wouldn't want you to think I had nothing to do.
Ooh, I forgot, while I was demonstrating WOW to Paula and Jim, I showed them my other characters. 'That's Gra'nash, an orc warrior and Shard, the night elf hunter, and there's Cookie, who's a gnome rogue. And there's Lilette, who's a human thief.'
Paula stared at me, and I got a bit embarrassed. 'You think it's weird I have a couple of female characters, don't you?'
'No,' said Paula 'but I do think it's odd you named one of them after a tampon.'
*Do you see what I did there? Marvellous stuff.
