frostzilla and unicorns!

With the new updates, I went after the Frostzilla last night. Only took four tries, yay! I gave up on the diseased wildclaw and just bought it. Oh well.
OK, I also bought a unicorn mount, *girlie squee* Spent some crowns on gifts to the boy's account. Having a stack of crowns is fun, LOL!
I'm thrilled with the reduction on hatching costs. I haven't gone there yet.

Mostly, the boy has gone "home". Um, this is "home", but that is too. We spent time on the game and hopefully we can keep that up. At least until school starts. I'm missing him already.

Here's a couple o'links:
Friendly's Unicorn mushy stuff-

And the Robot Unicorn Attack- It's mega-puking kyute!

Tomorrow's another day. Today, actually. Hmmm. I guess I'd better do something about that. G'nite!

Dragon*con 2010

Just checking:

I was going through the guest list, but didn't see anything. Does anyone know if there will be a wizard101 meetup or panel? I'll be asking around on other forums. It would be great to get together with you guys!

I just gotta say,
I lovelovelove this laptop! I'm still getting used to it all. But a quick couple of tries for the diseased wildclaw have gone by swiftly. Some aspects need tweaking, like the backlit keyboard. It's rough on my old eyes!

new goodies!

The boy and I got the $10 Blockbuster card, so I have a new dragon!

Today was really busy. We upgraded all the e-toys around here. Tomorrow will prolly be spent getting stuff hooked up. Question: Have you ever gone out to buy something that was reasonably priced for something you just have fun with, and end up buying ... well. We went to buy the hubby his new laptop and me something for playing Wizards, but nothing fancy. Not fancy=not expensive or elaborate or super powerful. I don't need anything MORE. I had something reasonable picked out, and the hubby said I needed something faster. We looked at something else and I said if we were going to get the #2 we might as well get two of his choice. So... I have no idea what all it does or what the specs mean, but I guess it's a pretty darn good laptop*.
The bestest thing is I got a Bamboo Fun. It looks like it's gonna be a blast! I've been told for years I should get a Wacom tablet. EEEE! It has great reviews and it may be what I need to kick start my artist creative part that's gone walkabout in the past few years. I've already been thinking about my supplies and papers lately. I don't know, but if it can just be fun again, then that would be awesome!

Let's hope I still have time to play after all these goodies!
And I did purchase the crowns deal and we did go to see (Avatar) The Last Airbender

*To clear up some of my simple-brainedness, I have some medical issues and the meds I take mess up my memory. I can no longer access some of the skills I used to have. Processing is "off" so instead of going from a to b to c, somethings skip a or b and get c backwards. That sort of thing. Really frustrating since I know I used to know things.

Stone update

Nothing like a straight 12 hours sleep to make me less cranky! Really. I have to sleep alot. It's a wezl thing.

It looks like there is some fix to the Use the Stone part. I missed it but the boy got through it fine. He spent most of the day with Taryn and Logan S. having a great time roaming through the test realm. I spent the day playing grown-up. Meh. Someone has to do it, I guess. I hope tomorrow isn't so busy!

Vesna/Stone bug

So last night I decided getting on the test realm and checking out the Celestia stuff might be interesting. I got up to the Vesna instance and struggled through the multiple dialog issues, reporting as I went. After dying more times than I could count (karma maybe, since I'm rarely defeated anymore) and beating those $#*@!? Weavers about 5 times, it dawned on me that I should check the buzz on Central. I guess it took me so long to get it since so many ppl were posting about their experiences in the warehouse. There is a bug (-ish) deal. If you don't see the Stone after Vesna tells you she's fixed it, you need to hang out and some time later it'll show up. If you do like me and run around freaking out, leave, come back in, battle the Weavers some more, since that worked out so well earlier (anyone up for some positive reinforcement operant conditioning refreshers?) then go to WC to see if Prof Balestrom has it... well, you'll be out of luck. If you have a friend or two who didn't go through with you the first time (because they weren't really good friends to begin with?) or you find some random stranger who hasn't gone through the ordeal of the past several hours of mostly dying, warn them about the Stone and wait with them until it appears, maybe you'll get to Use The Stone. Someone posted it took several minutes. Some of us stood around for at least that long with nothing to show for it.

OK, I know it's Test and this is just the sort of thing to look for, but it just seemed like everyone was going on about getting past this and on to the warehouse without incident. If you're like me and maybe not the coolest kid to have an abundance of ppl running with you or other accounts full of GMs waiting in the wings, this is my warning to you. If you don't read it here (which you prolly won't) hopefully, you'll stumble across this thread on Central Use Stone of Mazzaroth before you attempt this instance.

I admit to being cranky about this. Going to bed sometime after 5 am tends to make me that way. Getting frustrated to the point of tears does as well. So, I think I'll go back to Live and do what I was doing already: aging pets to adulthood and farming for new pets and gold

I hope to take advantage of the

Hubby gave me permission to spend the $60, but I also want to see (Avatar) the Last Airbender this weekend, which will prolly cost about the same. As far as the movie goes, I haven't set my expectations too high, so maybe it will be somewhat entertaining. I expect it to be more like a train wreck-you want to look away, but just can't. I can say it'll most likely be very pretty at least. Obviously, I'm a huge Avatar fan. The kid and I have followed the series all these years. I still cry every time I hear the Little Soldier Boy song. Maybe I'll post a review.
