Anne wrote a great piece yesterday on how she tells her dad what she does for a living. I've had similar conversations with my parents. My mom will often ask what I do exactly, while we sit around the dinner table. "I write about elves and fairies," I tell her.
At that point, she just looks at me and says, "You left your job at the symphony for this?", with that shake of the head in the way only mothers can do.
Then I go back to eating dinner, being sure to finish my steamed rhubarb like a good little boy.
(Kidding. My parents are pretty awesome and fully support my endeavors on the internet.)
On with more stories from Lake Wobegon ...
Does anyone know of a guide for soloing the Heroic Northrend dungeon achievements? I know there are some that CAN'T be soloed ("Share the Love", which requires a full party of five; and pretty much everything in the Oculus), but I'd really like to get Glory of the Northrend Hero. Trade on my server tends to be obnoxious, and my current guild has no interest in revisiting old content, so I'd like to solo as much of it as possible.
