My confession.

I have a confession to make.

I play World of Warcraft.

Yeah, that crazy MMORPG that all the gamer-nerd boys that stay up late drinking Mountain Dew and eating ramen noodles and raiding dungeons and babbling through their headsets to other players...

... Yeah. I confess. And that's actually a gargantuan stereotype up there; it's such a wide variety of people that play the game that I very rarely encounter those kind of stereotypical uber-game-geeks. It's such a more modernized thing now, I think, that more types of people are playing these games and enjoying them! (Like me!) I've been into video games for as long as I can remember, on consoles at least, but I never tried an online game until a few years ago, by the hassling of my boyfriend (we weren't dating yet) I started to play WoW.

So yeah, confession, I'm an online gamer geek. I play a big cow that can turn into other animals, I raid, I babble on my headset to friends and people in my guild, I'm leveling other characters... and I probably won't talk about it too much on this blog (I doubt I have a WoW audience!) but I figured I'd post about it because it's something not a lot of people expect from me. Game stereotypes! Ha!!

Its ok. My fiance plays it too, and he's nerdy, but not the kind of nerdy WoW conjures up. Actually he plays DotA too. Now that's nerdy.

Sami, I still love you. Even if you are an online gamer geek. (Kidding!) I love it when people are into unexpected stuff like this... And are brave enough to blog about it!

:) Thanks for playing the game!

So here are your questions:

-In the tv show Friends, who do you relate most to and why?

-If you could choose one power, what would you choose: to be able to fly, or to be able to read minds?

-Why did you start blogging?

-If you had one hour to pack 3 things and take a trip to a foreign country, what are 3 things you'd bring, where, and why?

-What is your dream job?

I don't play WOW, but I love playing Xbox live and talking to people around the world who also play. It is fun...Gamers come in all shapes and sizes :)

Kim said...

At least you've confessed it now. :)
