Love is in the Blog

Singles Awareness Day is a week from now and the Love Is In The Air event is starting up in the game. Are you guys finishing up the stupid candies achievement for your Purple Drake? Thank goodness I got that last candy on the last day! While the event is very cute, I got a lifetime’s worth of it last year. I don’t expect to be getting my hands dirty again any time soon.

Wait, wait, you say there’s some new items this year? Among others, a Toxic Wasteling pet and a Heartbreaker? Ok, I suppose I’ll head over to Scarlet Monastery Shadowfang Keep  a few times.

But really, I’d rather do a different kind of Love Is In The Air achievements this year. I’d like to take the event to my blog. Love is in the Blog!

With me being Ms Hardened Singleton Extraordinaire, you’d think I’d hate Valentine’s/Singles Awareness/Male Judgment Day, however you choose to call it. You’d think. But I don’t. It’s actually one of my favorite holidays. It’s the one time of year where I have an excuse to be a sappy shmoock and drive my friends, my colleagues, my acquaintances, random strangers on the street crazy with displays of affection.

Since this is a WoW blog, I want to use the next week to spread a little WoW love. Or raise WoW singleton awareness. Or get in touch with my sentimental side. I haven’t planned it all out yet, but I’m excited to announce that love will be in the blog.

EDIT: Just thought I’d mention, I’m totally not claiming copyrights on the idea (and as far as I know, it could have been done by people in the past). If anyone is at a loss for blog ideas this week and wants to join in on the theme, I’m all for it and will even link back to you.

    As a fellow single person (and someone whose friend base consists mostly of people who are married or otherwise involved), I’m curious as to what you have planned. I look forward to seeing what you’ve got up your sleeve. :)

    And if I’m not mistaken, isn’t the holiday boss encounter for the Valentine’s event in Shadowfang Keep?

      Ooooh, now there’s pressure!

      And you’re completely right about Shadowfang Keep. I had a brain fart and just typed in the other 2 worded instance that starts with S. I’ll go edit that.

      • Will Says:

        Woo hoo! I was useful!

        Ha ha; no need to feel any pressure. I’m sure that whatever you have planned will be well worth reading. (This is the Man With no Paladin reading a Paladin blog, after all. ;) )

        And being single does, I suppose, have its advantages. Like you mentioned, it allows me to wish my female friends a happy Valentine’s Day without the risk of having a girlfriend or wife smack me upside the head for it. And I’m not the guy that has to buy the flowers! ;)

        And I’m sappy and sentimental most of the time anyway, ha ha.

    Valentine’s = Male Judgment Day HAHAHA

    Oh god, that’s too true. But seriously, I’m the same way. I’ve been a bachelor for so long that I don’t really envy couples on Valentine’s. I don’t have to buy chocolates/flowers/balloons/epics for anyone, don’t have to go to no sappy movies or expensive restaurants…

    Ah, the freedom of single life.

      I wish I could take credit for coining “male judgment day”, but a member of a message board I used to post at used that term all the time. It is pretty true, which is both funny and sad at the same time.

      I definitely enjoy my low stress single life this time of year. No worries about being disappointed, taken for granted or anything like that.

      Although, the rare times I am in a relationship, I have no problems being treated like a princess. Doesn’t bother me at all ;D

    Totally random but perhaps somewhat related story…

    I am notorious for being somewhat overaffectionate… to a very embarassing degree. I’m not one of those people that shies away from telling others she loves them. I love everyone by default!

    So it’s always awkward when I say goodbye to acquaintances, and spit out something like “Have a good day! I love you!” to which I always get strange looks. I’m sorry… it’s just something I say all the time. People need to stop getting so weirded out by my overabundance of “I love you!”s!

    • Ophelie Says:

      Haha, that would so be me if I didn’t hold back!

      I’m a hugger, I’ll hug just about anyone who lets me. And I love to give presents. Love it. It makes people uncomfortable because they think I’m sucking or I want something in return, but I don’t, I just really love giving people things.

      I’m also a big baby when it comes to goodbyes. It’s especially weird when I meet up with online friends because their last memory of our get together tends to be of me bawling my eyes out.

      I guess one of the good things about being female is that I can get away with that kind of behavior.
