Hey Blizz

I don't like this update. I still don't have the promised new dances, my crit capability is nerfed, there's ridiculously little caster leathers in the expansion and wtf is up with effing with armor values for your vastly op bosses? What happened to the dual spec capacity?

Word to Wingnutistan

Fumbling a line does not make an oath illegal. It makes you human. Please hold off on the crazy until next week.

A few rambles on today's big event:

OMG! We made! Bush & Cheney didn't blow us up to kingdom come! YES!

Hey look! Danny Quayle, leader of the free world! He looks older now, like he can legally get a beer.

GWB is now old. Based on his gait, he's doddering. Poor guy, I'd have sympathy if I wasn't sure he's done evil many, many, many times.

Cheney's in a wheelchair. Good. Hope a mountain falls on him.

Did they just boo Cheney? Awesome!

There's the Clintons, looking dapper. Ok, maybe it's just me, but does Bill look slightly J at the amount of people here for Obama's swearing in? Slight shades of green.

Our president-elect wouldn't look out of place at a male model convention. I'm not into the goodlooking dudes as president but he's smart enough to overcome that.

Sweet Jesus! Is that a sausage maker or something? He looks like he might explode. Oh. Rick Warren. Well, time to go grab breakfast.

Is Rick Still TALKING?!


This is so not about you, Rick.

You can't spell prick, without Rick.

Finally, he's ending.

Or not. Shut up, man!

OMG, an alien landed on Aretha Franklin's head and is eating her brain!
No wait, just an ill-chosen, tasteless hat accessory. The alien would've been kinder.

Biden's in. Take that moosekiller!

The wonderful Itzak Perleman, Yoyo Ma, a woman and some black guy on clarinet. *sigh* At least it's quite beautiful.

No jumping the gun there, Obama. Barack Hussein Obama.

And it's done, A fucking Men! And look at that crowd! This is so damn awesome. It won't change my general distaste for people. I know you always liked that.

44 speaks! We thank Bush too, for leaving. Way to be a downer, Barack. We just want to float bit before the ugly truth sets in. However, you're right, this is not even beginning and hard work is ahead. Time to sip some tea.

OOO, cutting to Bush while Obama talks about restoring the rule of law and not compromising between safety and ideals. That's wrong, but highly amusing MSNBC.

Hey, atheists are part of American! Woohoo! Pagans, still the red-headed step-child sitting out back until the family is finished dinner.

"We will extend a hand, if you're willing to unclench your fist." Wow.

I don't know how the man can give so many damn speeches that move so many damn people, but more power to him and, Godspeed.

I couldn't have said it better myself

On the rapidly approaching eve of Barack Obama's inauguration, I'll let a more eloquent soul speak for me about it's meaning.

"Those messes are enormous, bigger than Washington, bigger than race, bigger than anything most of us have ever seen. Nearly three months after Election Day, it remains astonishing that the American people have entrusted the job to a young black man who seemed to come out of nowhere looking for that kind of work just as we most needed him."

So true. But he was elected because anyone with real experience in life can recognize true God given talent and grace. This man has it. He can think. He has real chops. He is not a vapid automaton ideologue like the man he is replacing. This country is in very big trouble and every thinking person knows it. My prayers will be with this man every day for the next eight years as long as I am on this planet. He is the real deal. I am a white man. I am a military veteran. I am so glad I have lived to see this day. The blood of African Americans has run red upon the ground in the Armed Forces of the United States. They fought to defend rights that they themselves did not have in their own country. Their day has now come. All men are created equal! Their righteous day has come. In this moment I honor them greatly. They brought us here in their belief that the nation would some day finally live out it's creed as Martin Luther King bid us. We are there.
