Have you ever taken a day off from work or school specifically for the purpose of playing WoW? I don’t mean that you stayed home sick and happened to play since you were home anyway. I mean you woke up, decided that you had some supremely important WoW stuff, and didn’t go to work/school just for that reason.
I have never done that. I almost did after the Wrath release, but I was scheduled for a mandatory meeting on release day and ended up at work anyway. Plus, my job affords me lots of days off, so I can always put off my Warcraft urges until my next long weekend or extended holiday.
This is on my mind because after today I have two weeks off for the holidays. Just in time to start grinding heroics and rep for pre-raid gear. I hope to get a lot accomplished in the next couple of weeks. If I get enough done, I might earn my way into my guild’s first official Naxx run on January 2nd. (I hope my wife doesn’t have a lot of projects planned)
Today I saw someone at my job who was wearing a blue Santa hat. My first thought was, “I wonder what boss dropped that?”
