Evidence of the WoW-ification of My Mind

October 21, 2010

This is just too good to not share.

Below you will find an email exchange between me and two of my co-workers, Sean and Michelle, whom I carpool with. They both know that I play WoW, but they’ve never really witnessed how it has infiltrated my everyday life.

That is, until this morning.

Backstory: A girl at work quit and therefore I now have the delightful task of taking over all of her series. One of them is about bugs. I HATE BUGS. And I thought I was going to have to go through all of the bug books today so I could send my corrections back to the Australian publisher we bought them from so they can in turn make changes. However, they emailed me and said I could have another week with the proofs.

Now that you have been briefed, read on!

Not that I don’t appreciate the links….but I will not be clicking on them. I can’t deal with the actual knowledge that somewhere exists evil spiders that have the capacity to destroy humanity if they had the ability to organize. Like the Nerubians. (So terrifying.)

AND BARKING SPIDER?! Do they bark to make us think that they are dogs and then bite us? Ugh.

In addition to barking, they live in gardens around Queensland, have an 8-inch leg-span, and are sometimes called “bird-eating spiders”. so.

I was NOT expecting a WoW link. gosh.

The aqir ruled the lands of the far west. These clever insectoids were greatly expansionistic and incredibly evil. The aqir were obsessed with eradicating all non-Arthropod life from the fields of Kalimdor. So the two big troll empires of Gurubashi and Amani found their common enemy in the third empire — the nationDF 43 of Azj’Aqir.
