Mind you, I normally don't mention real life things, however; when I'm living on a main artery for the town and can thankfully walk to work, and something that's happening a few cities over actually has an impact on my city, and region, and spikes my state's economy... I'm posting on it.
Sturgis Bike Week. August 3-9 according to all official leaflets, but anyone that's lived and worked through one in the past knows better than to trust an official leaflet. It basically starts tonight, and goes until next Sunday. Motorcycles roaring all hours of the day and night. Its going to be so loud, that I'd warned guildmates ahead of time not to expect me on vent.
We've been seeing more and more bikes since at least last Monday. And since I'm living in an outlying city in the Northern Hills, the main point of origin must already be reeling from all the bikes in town.
I do enjoy looking at the various bikes, its just the level of noise at times gets to a person, the vibration settles somewhere around the back teeth, like a constant buzz that doesn't let up until a week after it should.
All I can say? Hope I survive yet another... next year is going to be completely insane. Its 70 years next year. Well, gotta get dressed for work... we are wearing Rally apparel this week... obviously! Wish me luck... I just might need it.
Well, I brought Casavel along and off tanked, with Vel as main tank. We cleared Spider Wing. Then did Plague Wing. Got to Heigan, died, died, died... oh did I mention... died? Repeatedly? Group decided to call Heigan, so we went on to deal with Patchwerk instead. Cas got a lovely new epic necklace out of a trash kill - yay upgrades, as Lin would say.
I main tanked Patchwerk... and died in about 3 seconds flat. That was an Oops. We tried again, I kept Patches focused on me, Vel ate the Hateful Strikes, we dropped him before he enraged. Guild was estatic. I was sitting there giggling, and dropped dead right after Patches did... not sure why, but I went splat.
Mage (Lin) didn't die on Frogger... Sol, our priest did. Vel deliberately killed himself... but what can you expect from a former paladin healer who would randomly DI people? Hehe.
Got to Grobbulus... and kept making mistakes. We had people that had to leave, so we called the run.
But boy did I ever have fun. I think its the most fun I've had in a run since the days of first starting out in Kara and being a healer short and ALMOST downing the Horseman on the first attempt. I've got to hand it to my guildmates, very little annoyed us... except the Safety Dance.
