Anyway, even as I ruminated on the relevance of our favorite game in light of the crazy things that have happened, I still know that it's a fun game and I still want to play it. I mean, bad things happen everywhere all the time. And sometimes, it even touches our lives directly. I guess you could call it our own little cataclysms. From the smallest things that ruin our day to those really earth-shaking ones, we meet all the nasty things life throws at us and we deal with it. Personally, at the end of a few harrowing days, I found playing World of Warcraft even for a few minutes at a time to be familiar and comforting. Even after being away from the game for a while, logging in was moderately cathartic.
Today's Breakfast Topic is a discussion of hope. I know that many of you have had to deal with your own little cataclysms. I want to ask how, if at all, World of Warcraft has figured into that. Some of you might know friends in-game who have suffered through some ordeal, and the game only brought you closer together. Others use it to unwind from a hard day's work. Those count, too. How has the game brought you relief and made you smile in the most awful times? I'm actually really looking forward to kicking Deathwing's fiery butt now and can't wait for the expansion to hit. I mean, because you know, compared to Ondoy, Neltharion's kind of like a pansy.
