I woke up Saturday morning with a slightly sore throat that went away soon after my morning cup of hot cocoa. Then on Sunday morning I woke up dead. My throat so raw and swollen that it makes me cry just to have to breath air. At work Sunday night, in between all of the not-eating and not-drinking I am currently involved in, I became fevered and sweaty. It’s been a fun 24 hours. Which is why today I am simply posting a youtube video instead of using actual brain power to think of witty things to say.
If you absolutely love British comedy and you’ve never heard Eddie Izzard before, I highly recommend checking out some more of his stuff.
While questing along in Balmorra, I got a quest reward of some green pants that happened to have better stats than the orange modded lower robe I had been wearing at the time. Because I was too lazy to take the time to travel somewhere and buy new mods for the robe, I just stuck it in my bags and threw the pants on. I knew they didn’t look good, but I didn’t pay much attention. However, during a Flashpoint with guildies, one of the guys pointed at them and laughed and I realized they are pretty ridiculous looking. And the boots I’m currently wearing do nothing to compliment them. In fact, if you catch me at the right angle, it sort of looks like I’m just wearing underwear and tube socks. So of course I had to break out in dance. And just in case you don’t know what I’m referencing here, the video is below the screenshot.
This is one of the original trailers for the first ever Star Wars movie from 1977. And let’s be honest, it’s a very crappy movie trailer. I don’t remember seeing this as a kid, but watching it now I don’t know why anyone would even want to see the movie based solely on this trailer. But crappiness aside, it represents the beginning of everything Star Wars and since this blog has been created to document my experiences in the upcoming mmo Star Wars: The Old Republic, I thought this movie trailer would be a great way to kick off the blog. You know, bring it back old school.
Since the upcoming game still has no official release date, and since I’ve already created this little bit of space on the interwebz, I thought I’d go ahead and start putting up some general Star Wars related posts here while I am patiently waiting. I’ll be focusing on the game soon enough, but until then you can expect to find various tidbits of the Star Wars world that I find funny, informative, cool, or nostalgic featured here along with some of my rambling blah, blah, blah. Hopefully it will keep you entertained enough that you will stick around until I can start posting about the game itself.
