Gone Fishing!

So, that's me and a bonefish I caught on holidays recently. See how happy I am?

WoW doesn't make me happy like that!

There is nothing quite like 2 weeks on a tropical island with no tv, computers, phones or even a microwave to give you another perspective on life.

From now on... there will be no more raiding.

No more scheduling game time.
No more rushing home to get back in time for the first pull.
No more staying up late and skipping dinner for the sake of a raid.
No more lusting after purple pixels.
No more pushing as much DPS as possible out of my gear.
No more theorycrafting.
No more auction housing.

In short, I won't be chasing the carrot any more.

(... At least not for a while.... I dare say I will re-activate after the next expansion just to see what all the fuss is about... but I usually do don't I?)

In the meantime I'm busy with a new business venture, and have been playing the FPS Modern Warfare 2 instead for my gaming fix.

You know, it's nice to play when you want, for as long as you want, and be able to stop any time you feel like it, and for that to not affect your enjoyment of the game or any body else's either.

So that, is that.

To all my blogging friends, thank you.

Thank you for all the laughs, the tips, the tricks, the stories and the little bits of yourselves that you share with the world.


PS: if you ever have an opportunity to visit Fraser Island, do it!

Sand, sun, beaches, fishing, rainforests, freshwater lakes, manta rays, dingos, sea turtles, stars, hammocks, friends, sunsets... a little bit of paradise in my book

PSS: Send me an email if you play MW2 and want to get in touch - I'll give you my steam name and we can pewpew
