If you're a goblin shaped statue in Booty Bay, Deathwing putting on his armor SUCKS apparently. Any time I watch the Cataclysm cinematic, I swear I hear the statue of Baron Revilgaz curse. I'm pretty sure it's the angle. The scene is framed in such a way that you get an honest sense of the rising tide of impending doom. Unfortunately for the Baron that sense -IS- quite literally the rising tide of impending doom.
Yesterday was travel day. I packed my bags the night before, got two hours of sleep, and headed out to the airport at 5:30am. The flight was uneventful except for the shakey handed businessman dumping water all over himself. And even which ended with him sitting on the entertainment section of his news paper.
Touched down in Orange County. Luggage went to the wrong carousel, no biggy. I pulled out the phone number and confirmation code Blizzard gave me for the shuttle that would take me from the airport to the hotel. Called the number and was immediately given another number to call. I shrugged and dialed it up and was promptly treated to an ad for phone sex. Figuring I misdialed, I tried again. Nope. Same phone sex ad. Called my Blizzard contact and sure enough the number we had been given was one digit off.
Called the new number, the shuttle came in short order. And driving the shuttle was a likable, chatty fellow named Ronald. Like almost every other person in California Ronald is an aspiring actor. He's been at it for 30 years and his biggest success to date is playing Pierre in the Tim & Eric Show on Comedy Central's Adult Swim. If you've seen the show but can't place the name, he's the gold lamay shirt wearing guy that sings the "Do Dah Doo Doo" song.
Never a dull moment.
Today is Community Summit day. Now I can only guess at what this will actually entail based on the words "community" and "summit". But I do know we start the day off with a tour of the Blizzard Campus. I'm going to be doing my best to grab photos with my phone and send them along to the GU Facebook Page.
