Friday Ficlet (Woolly)

This week its a ficlet, not a list of questions.   


“Come here little rattie!”  Pill peered into the large pile of debris in the Orgrimmar alley.  She was finally ready for a new rat and the white one she had just seen vanish into the pile was perfect.


“Chu crazy deada.  Chu be given mah ya money, I ba tinkin?” 


“WUT?”  The mage whirled around and looked down the shaft of the bolt pointed at her head; she barely kept her pointy hat on her head as she did so.


“Chu `eard me.  Gimme deh gold!”  The troll snarled, but never lowered the crossbow.


“Oy!  You tosser!  Why you think I give a stinky troll like you nothing?”  She could have spat fire.


“I be deh one wit deh shoota.”


With a startled bah, the troll fell to the ground.  The crossbow clattered and the bolt pierced through the pile of trash and pinned the rat she had been after to the wall.


“RIGHT!”  Pill shouted at the confused sheep.  “You’ll pay for that!”  She adjusted her pointy hat, pulled a set of clippers out of a pouch at her belt and set to work.  A few minutes later, a very green and naked troll ran out of the alleyway. 


“Bah!  Horrible wool.  He must not eat enough.”   With her cloak wrapped into a makeshift backpack, Corspilla opened up a portal and went back to Dalaran.  She would look for a rat later.  She had carding to do.

I get bored.  I get bored a lot.  This is not to say that I have nothing to do.  I actually have things to do.  Bank reconciliations, bills to pay and chores to do.  I have things to do, but they don’t engage me.  What does engage me is creative things.  The creative drug of choice is writing.


The problem with a lot of the writing that I do is that it is a single person exercise and sometimes I want the extra input from someone else.  So, I engage in role-playing.  The role-playing mode of choice right now is WoW.  (This is also my particular addiction of choice in a lot of other ways.)  This is actually a lot of fun most of the time.


But, sometimes I get frustrated.  I have mentioned that I think a lot…  I know I have.  I know I have also written about feeling disassociated, odd, crazy, etc etc. 


The point is that my brain works on stuff and I really enjoy the interaction from the other people I rp with, but I don’t want to cross the line…  And I’m afraid to ask about things because I am not sure if I am just being normally curious or if I am being a huge pain in the tuckus. 


Oh..  and I am moody as all hell too.  And let me tell you..  if you think that being on the receiving end of a moody person is bad, try being the moody person. 


And all of this crap is why I made this damn blog anyway. 


Okay, point of rambling long post in short bullets:


1)      I like to write

2)      I like the people I RP with to write (or RP) with me

3)      I want to encourage these people to write (or RP) more without being any more of a freak than I already am.

Any suggestions?

Lots of peope have heard me complain about how I believe the “war on terror” was dealt with. This small bit of the speech, makes me proud to have elected this man.

“As for our common defense, we reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals. Our Founding Fathers, faced with perils we can scarcely imagine, drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man, a charter expanded by the blood of generations. Those ideals still light the world, and we will not give them up for expedience’s sake. And so to all other peoples and governments who are watching today, from the grandest capitals to the small village where my father was born: know that America is a friend of each nation and every man, woman, and child who seeks a future of peace and dignity, and that we are ready to lead once more.”

My man is president today

I have read and heard people both elated and disgusted, happy and sad, vindicated and devistated and everything inbetween over the election of Obama as president of the USA.  This post is not about any of that.  It is not gloating, but elation.  In the belief that this is not only the president we deserve, but the man we need.

To those for whom Obama was not your choice, I respect your right to disagree.  I understand that some of those who are overwhelmed with giddy happiness can be crude and insulting in their victory.  Try not to paint us all in such harsh terms.  Those that I have known to be displeased with the results of the election, I have avoided your blogs and conversations.  The angry and bitter recriminations do not sit well.  I am not a woman of broad brushes and to see those that I normally respect and enjoy engage in such behavior annoys and saddens me.

To those for whom Obama was our choice.  It is our duty to not only be gracious in our victory but also understanding.  What we saw in Obama was not what some others saw.  That does not make them stupid, crass or tyrants.  It simply means that we must work harder to help them see what we see.

Being sometwhat Agnostic, I would still ask everyone to pray for the man that now leads our country.  May he provide the guidance and light that we need in these times of uneasy and darkness.


((And I already have to add a post-script to this.  Insulting and argumentative posting will not be tolerated.  I don’t care what side of the political fence you are on.))
