This morning I received an unexpected surprise while going through my emails – a thank you poem from Navi. I admit I had forgotten about her blogiversary thank you task but she also wanted to include her thanks for the secret gift I had made for her.
A site more beautiful than Cym’s
Is very hard to find.
Her pics well framed, and great costumes
Look longer! She won’t mind.
Silver dragons and novelties
And transmogs oh so fine!
Achievements, rares and pets are here -
She’s the queen of grand design!
I don’t have many screenshots of us from vanilla. In fact, I almost added the one from Hooters with our chibi heads but thought against it.
Anyway, thx Nav <3
As you know, I recently managed to get my Lil’ Tarecgosa pet and as part of my appreciation, I left a few gifts with some members in Shadow Rising. But what do you get the guy to who all the pets? Well that’s not entirely true… I did try and get him the Searing Scorching at first since I knew he was missing that for a while – even doing some of the dailies. In fact, it was one of two pets I religiously looked up (the other was for Navi) every time I made a trip to the AH on any server I happened to be on. The pet was intended as a Winter Veil gift but with time running out, it didn’t eventuate.
So with this latest venture, as I leveled a toon on his home server, I tried to think of another way I could reciprocate – the Crawling Claw. I’ve been lucky enough to have mine for a long time now but since I didn’t make the money back in time, I considered putting my effort into discovering another one as a gift. However, soon after I started digging for another claw (mostly through trade-ins to Braun) it brought back memories of farming the Vial of the Sands, the two bug mounts and my Claw.
In the end, I managed to make quite a bit of Gold, selling off some of the pets from my collection but I also wanted to supplement that with something pet-related. After Christmas, I was lucky enough to get another Pandaren Fire Spirit which I sent to Arv saying that I knew he already had the pet but he could probably try selling it to get some of the Gold back. Little did I know, he gave the pet to Lyss instead.
It turns out that Lyss lucked out and managed to get not one but TWO pets as I originally gave her my Pandaren Water Spirit – with a matching one to Slice.
But the question remained… what do you get the guy who has all the pets available?
How about turning him into a superhero for a night? I had a suspicion that he was partial to Batman so taking that on board, I went back to my original Batman interpretation as part of my Super Sunday series and tweaked it using Arv’s toon.
The true crimefighter always carries everything he needs in his utility belt.
Look at him rappelling down the walls of Stormwind in style…
Reese Cups are one of those things I’ve tried a few times over the years. I was first introduced to them through my Uncle (many years ago) during a visit from The States – that’s probably 20 or so years ago now. Later that year, we happened to have some trick-or-treaters but having no real sweets to give away, I spotted the bag of Reese Cups in the cupboard. I handed one to each kid and off they went. After they left, I looked out the window to see if I should expect any more kids and spotted the three I had just spoken to, talking to another small group of children pointing at my house.
I’m not sure if they were even available in Australia at the time so it turns out they were quite a hit. After that, I pretended not to be home. In hindsight, I shouldn’t have given them out with all the allergies these days, who knows if one of those kids had a peanut allergy. Luckily for me, nothing came of it that year (at least that I know of). We don’t always have kids knocking on the door during Halloween – in fact, I remember it only happening over two years but that was a long time ago now.
Since then, I’ve found you can buy Reese Cups here from various places but I’ve never seen them this friggin’ huge before. Cool said that he was sending me something for Christmas but his only clues were “it’s big but in a small package” and “It’s light but pretty fragile.” OK?
This afternoon, I headed to the PO to see if my package had arrived.
I was careful not to read the customs declaration as Cool wanted to see my reaction when I opened it.
Holy Crap, just look at the size of those things… they’re bigger than the palm of my hand! LOL
Makes me wonder how long they’ll last… :P
I’ll have to add these to the list of things Cool’s sent in the past like the S’mores Pack and Twinkies I hadn’t tried before. The S’mores were pretty good but I must say that Twinkies have a weird aftertaste.
Now if only my package to Cool would arrive already…
