Terokkar Turkey Time

I missed the runs with my guildies, so I decided to do Ikiss alone. 

Starwinkle and I will run this on heroic, attempting to get the mount, but I think Star was shopping or something. When I finally got caught up she wasn't online :)

So, I just soloed it on normal mode. No big deal, right?

Well, it shouldn't have been, but:

First attempt - The server crashed when his health was at 20%. I was dead when the server came back.

Second attempt - I forgot to put on my pilgrim clothes! Duh. 

Third attempt - Success!

Keila the Pilgrim

I finished all of the Pilgrim achievements today. The most difficult one for me was Turkey Lurkey. I got a bunch right at the beginning but couldn't find a Troll Rogue for anything.

There was one running around in Dalaran, but he was already transformed and he wouldn't switch back. After a while I went to Orgrimmar and that didn't help, so I stealthed into the troll starting area. That place was completely dead. I gave it about twenty minutes, but that was a complete waste of time. 

I thought about getting a guildy to help, but no one was online today.  I think everyone was shopping :)
When I was ready to give up, I ported back to Dalaran and there was a guy with 4 different rogues hanging out in the barber shop offering to help folks, so I finally completed the achievement and got my turkey pet!

Oh, after I got the achievement I went shopping too. Someone who might read this is getting a really great gift courtesy of a really nice druid ;)

Now that's a Feast!

I love the tables the Blizzard folks set up for the thanksgiving feast. I enjoyed passing (and throwing) the food to other players. This was a pretty creative idea, and it worked well. It was also the easiest achievement. I had no problems at all going to Horde cities and sitting at their tables. Two of the cities I didn't even get flagged.

I'm just sorry that it doesn't appear that you can cook, and use, the food during other times of the year. I'd probably stock up on some of the ingredients if they wouldn't vanish within a week. It gets old making the same food items over and over.

Plus, I really love pumpkin pie!  Yum :)

The Onyxia pet is really nice too. I need to install a random pet mod, I have way toooo many pets now.

Turkey Cat?

I did get turned into a turkey a couple of times. One of those happened while I was mounted!

I have to admit I rode around like this for quite a while. It was just too ridiculous seeing a turkey riding a tiger, I had to keep it going for a while :)

Pity the Fool on Thanksgiving

While doing all of the Thanksgiving quests I got hit with the Mohawk many times, probably more than I got turned into a turkey. I think people are saving the turkey gun for those pesky rogues :)
I don't think I look so hot with a mohawk ;P

The Night Elf Mohawk

I finally got time to ride over and visit with Mr. T and pick up my mohawk grenades.
Then I followed around the new players and threw grenades at them. I know, "Bad Keila!"

But I buffed them too!! Doesn't that count :)

I love the silly stuff. This is why I never get bored with this game. There is always something else just around the corner.

450 Leatherworking!

I finally decided to get those last ten points in leatherworking, so I headed to Argent Vanguard to grind big ugly spiders. For the better part of three long WoW sessions I killed spider after spider.

Finally I maxed leatherworking!!!

That was a grind. I don't want to do that again anytime soon. I have no desire to see a stupid spider for a looooong time.

Why is there no achievement for this?

Not only did I get leatherworking, I got 32 greens, 2 blues, tons of gold, stacks of scrolls, frostweave cloth, runic potions, and more leather than you can imagine. If you have to grind something, there probably is no better mob in the game. I guess it paid off.

If only I still had my sanity :)

Dig Rat Stew

Here's my final recipe for the Chef de Cuisine, Dig Rat Stew.

LOL ;)

No Glory for the Business manager

This is Khariel. Except for my guildies, no one knows, or pays much attention to her. But she has a very important job. She keeps me organized, maintains my finances, and buys me fun stuff.

Because of all that, I thought she should get some credit for all she does.

So here she is, Khariel - bank alt and business manager for Keila :)

I am a Chef de Cuisine

I finally decided to finish out the cooking achievements.

To do that I needed to learn 160 cooking recipes and I was a few short. So, I looked around to find the recipes I was missing and my quest led me to the end of the line in the Barrens.

I think it's pretty funny that after all the time I've been cooking in WoW, I became a Chef de Cuisine with Dig Rat Stew.

Fishing Chair!

I've never been lucky enough to get the Fishing Chair from the Trading Card Game, but today I noticed one in Valgarde. Sadly, it's just for show, you can't sit in it.

Fix this Blizz! :)

I can cook!

Okay, I'm really a lousy cook, but I'm now a WoW Chef! I actually captured the achievement with the movie capture, but I had the movie settings on my MacBook set to NOT capture the interface while recording, so I missed getting the screen shot.

Anyway, here's my Chef achievement and some of the other silly things I've done recently. The triage one was interesting. I just found a mob and let them beat be down to the five percent mark. I actually messed this one up twice before I got it right. Cost me a few gold in repairs :)

Fun with Fishing

I've caught a lot of things with fishing, but this is a new one for me. I think this is the most valuable vendor item I've ever found, or fished up.

I'm a little bit sad that it's not a pet or something fun, but it's still very cool :)

Mr Pinchy - Again!

I caught Mr. Pinchy before Wrath came out and ALL of my wishes were bad. Therefore I didn't get the achievement.

Since I decided to work toward the Salty title I went back to fish him up. I got lucky this time, it only took an hour or so and my first wish was the Pet!

Dead Kitty

I almost missed the Day of the Dead holiday. I literally stumbled upon it. I'm glad I didn't miss it, I'm a few recipes short of the Chef de Cuisine achievement and I can use every recipe I can get!
