Ok, Maybe It’s Time For ANOTHER Change!

Posted in Blog, WoW at 9:48 am by Andrea

So, some of you may know that a long while back, I moved my blog to be self hosted. This blog became Altoholics R Us. I loved that site, it was a blast to work on. Sadly, it was hacked, not once, but twice. I lost all of the content from this point forward. I became discouraged and gave up blogging. However, after a long hard look about it, I’ve decided to pick it back up. I’ve created a new blog, a new name, and hopefully, some new goals. So if I haven’t lost you completely, please check back into http://www.hdks.wordpress.com to find my new incarnation of this blog, Hots, Dots, and Kidney Shots. (Catchy, am I right?)

Gimme some time to set it up though. It’s kinda late, but I was excited and couldn’t wait to put a post up. Look forward to it!

And THANK YOU, if you’ve managed to stick around all this time!

–Andrea

P.S. To help old readers relate to the new blog, I’m exporting the entries of this blog to the new one, so you’ve got a sense of history there.

Somebody Loves Me!

I have a fan, who knew? Kidding. Obviously there will be readers, but every now and again, I find one I didn’t know about before that has a blog of their own. Today’s blogger is Ruhtra of Holy Shock who tagged me in a little meme. So I’m gonna do this meme, but before I do, let’s give a little shoutout to Ruhtra! Ruhtra’s blog Holy Shock is a personal and interesting read into the life of a holy pally, but often his own thoughts and opinions weigh in heavily, and it is easy to relate to him on his topics. I can tell this blog is gonna be a good read, and I look forward to seeing more of it!

 

And now for the meme

 

  • When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to the said person so everyone knows she/he is real.
  • Choose a minimum of seven (7) blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have seven friends. Show the seven random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with Honest Weblog. Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.
  • List at least ten (10) honest things about yourself. Then pass it on!
  •  

    7 Awesome Blogs To Read (That I Award): (In no particular order)

    1. Big Red Kitty — Expected? Maybe. But I don’t even play a hunter, and I’m fairly convinced I could tell you all about it thanks to him. I especially love the little pieces where he argues with himself or when he talks about military matters. BRK is an enjoyable read, even if you don’t play a hunter.

    2. Egotistical Priest — And here I thought I was full of myself. Ego has a lot of information to take in, but it’s written for the newcomers and the old. Ego has such a way of adding a humor twist to the posts that you just can’t help but enjoy them. A great read.

    3. Lady Jess — I link her a lot, but I just love her views on WoW. Jess has the uncommon ability to find the smallest details in this game we overlook so often. It’s always refreshing to go there and see what gem she’s found recently.

    4. World of Matticus — I’m a healer. This is my go-to resource to find out the latest and greatest in game updates and in healing. Matticus and his team have researched far and wide  to provide the best healer related information out there.

    5.  Actually, I give up here. I know so many bloggers but they’ve all been tagged already!

    Now…. the second half….

    10 Truths…

    1. I’m a terrible terrible homemaker. I’m sure you already knew that, but Im gonna state it again anyways….. TERRIBLE

    2. I am in college right now, and I am maintaining a 4.0 GPA. So far I am only six courses in, but whatever, its a start.

    3. Garen is the cook in our house…. though I can do minor cooking, I just never learned to be very good at it.

    4. I was never very secure in my religion until recently. But I never lied about it, either.

    5. I’ve held three jobs, and all three for a year or less each.

    6. I am a diagnosed Bi-polar… and now they are making me take pills for it.

    7. I have quit smoking 4 times, once for each pregnacy and once when I first married Garen. I quit quitting cause nobody likes a quitter! (actually the pills from above are also a quit smoking aid! I really AM trying for the 5th time)

    8. I’m only just now believing that I might be intelligent after all.

    9. I am terribly insecure about how I look and how people see me. I constantly worry about the image I make and am always walking on egg shells to make sure everything is pleasant.

    10. Despite the fact that they are just terrible for you, I drink an Amp every morning. Its a habit I started at 16 when Garen demanded I never drink coffee again (and I don’t!)

    But Mom, All the Bloggers are Doin’ It!

    Posted in Blog, General, WoW tagged , , at 7:07 am by Andrea

    So there’s a meme goin’ around that’s been a sort of craze lately… Gnomes are doin it, Banana’s are doin it, Hell even QQers, Wanna-be Hordies, and Gun Lovers are doin it. And lets not forget the Romantics, the Flower Lovers, The Married, The Raged, The Knotty, The Corner Lurkers, The Numerous Annas, and yes, even the Matticus’ of the World are doin it, too.

    And Damnit, I hate being left out.

    So here’s my shot:

     

    Bronze Drake

    Bronze Drake

    That’s a bronze drake from the timed culling of stratholme event. I was quite excited to have won it, but didn’t get the chance to try it out until we went to Naxx, when I snapped this screenshot. You are supposed to tag someone for this, but seeing as the list above includes nearly every blogger I know, I’m just gonna let this one slide.

    A Meme

    Posted in Blog at 12:55 am by Andrea

    I’ve been tagged by that lovable hunter over at Dechion’s Place… The meme, originally started by One Among Many simply asks:

    Go back to your first few posts. Who was the first person to EVER comment on your blog? Call them out, link that post and thank them! Then tag a few folks to see who they call out.

    Well….. 

    Dechion Commented first, followed by Asara, and Larisa all on my post… An Introduction, of Sorts.

    They all wished me good luck and welcomed me to the blogosphere! I started out not knowing where I wanted to take this blog… and I still really don’t know, but I’m having fun anyways stumbling my way around and ranting about whatever comes in front of me. However, this blog is here to stay. Merry Christmas everyone…. oh and I don’t tag anyone… this meme has been around for a while now.

    Really Busy

    Posted in Blog tagged , , , , at 1:13 am by Andrea

    Hello Peeps!

    I dinged 77 on Pallylust last night! Woot! Time to do all of my exploration because that is some awesome and easy XP and of course, an achievement. I am continuing to work on my cooking and Kaluak Dailies and leveling. Also, we had a rather large Thanksgiving get together and I’ve been working to get my Christmas shopping done this weekend.

    Finally I have been working on a HUGE post, featuring ALL of the Northrend Dailies, and it has become a far larger project then I anticipated. I’ve been working on it for four days already, and I’m only about half done. So please, stay with me while I finish this post for you all. I hope you enjoy it, and I’ll be finishing it and having it up asap.

    After that post I intend to put one together featuring ALL of the cooking recipies in the game, making it easier for you to obtain them all for your achievement, and to help along to secure you the title of “Chef”.

    Once that is finished I hope to get a page going featuring all of the dailies in the game… and eventually one dedicated to how to get achievements finished effiently. So as you can see, I’ve got a lot on my mind, and a lot on my plate. Please stay tuned.

    My First Poll!

    Posted in Blog tagged , , , , , , at 8:02 pm by Andrea

    I don’t do polls often. Why not? I dunno… just don’t think about it really. But last night Hubby was checking out the new layout of the blog, and decided that he downright hated it. In fact, he likes the old one better. Now his opinion doesn’t matter (haha, but I still love him) but yours does! So vote away on your preference… and let me know… because this blog is for you, the reader.
