Waffles or Cake?

My guild tends to talk a lot on mumble during raids, and the topics can be pretty varied. Some not repeatable here…

One of the topics last night was what is the funniest/oddest/most inappropriate questions you had been asked on a guild application. One member told us of a guild she applied to that had the question “What man and woman would you most like to have a threesome with”. Which I’m pretty sure falls into the inappropriate category (*cough* Castiel from Supernatural and Faith from Buffy/Angel *cough*). My guild asks about cake (we are very cake-centric), and an older guild I was in asked if you preferred Waffles or Cake.

So what’s the most memorable thing you have been asked in an application? Is there any questions you’ve refused to answer, maybe have even been a deal breaker?

Personally I don’t like applications that demand I supply my real name.


No Blizzcon? Meh, No Big Deal IMO.

It was announced a few days ago that there will be no Blizzcon this year.  This has pissed off quite a few people, but really, I have no strong opinions either way.  I live in the UK, and don’t earn much, so it’s not like I would have been able to go anyway.  Sure, it’s been an ambition of mine to go to Blizzcon (and Comic-con) for years now, but realistically it’s not going to happen for a few years yet.  And I’ve never bothered signing up to the live feeds, don’t really see the point, with me it’s either all or nothing.

So no US blizzcon doesn’t piss me off.  But you know what does?  The fact that Blizzard has subscribers all over the damn world, and only the US get a Blizzcon.  Hey, how about giving other places a bit of love.  I’m not saying there should be one in the UK, and one in Germany and one in France all in the same year, but hell, why not hold one in a different country each year?  Or are we just not as important as the folks over in the US?

Promoted! Sort of…

I was unemployed for 3 years before I lande a job where I currently work.  Employers, when they saw I had been off work caring for my mentally ill ex-husband seemed to assume that meant I had been sat on my butt all day when the truth was I had to be ‘on duty’ as it were 24/7.  So finding a job after we split up wasn’t easy, and i was thrilled to get not just a job but in a place where I got on with the people i work with.

That was last year, and now my hard work has paid off.  I’ve been put on permenant contract, given htree whole bar shifts of my very own and best of all, have been told I can start doing some college courses my boss will pay for.  Woot!!

Ofcourse the downside is it stops me raiding in WoW on a tuesday, but I am not SO big a geek I will let that stop me 🙂
