Watch this

After a search that took me over a month, I've finally found two beautiful watches. One of them will become a birthdaygift from my parents to me. At first I was looking at the Seiko Kinetic collection, since I like the idea of never having to change batteries, but all of those are way too expensive. So I went to the local jewelry shop and there I discovered the Citizen Eco-Drive series. Also without batteries but using light instead of kinetic energy as its powersource. Daylight/sunlight charges the watch, officelight is enough not to drain it. They're both the same model, but with different colors and one has a metal band while the other has a leather one. Also cool: they automatically keep track of the date and summer/wintertime so I only have to change the time if I'm on holiday in another timezone :)

Yay, my personal WoW troll

Apart from my high level characters on the Dragonblight server, I joined another guild on another server last month to play together with a few of my new colleagues. Enter Popov, the Draenei Shaman. A week into this new guild, the guildchat was spammed with infantile behaviour and I left. The next day I got a message from the guildleader (a nice lady who wasn't online when the aforementioned happened) and after I told her what happened, we talked and mailed for a couple of days after which she asked if I would re-join as officer to help her maintain the peace. I thought a while, then agreed.

Today: a few members start talking trash about other cultures. I ask them to take it to whispers or pipe it down. They refuse. I warn them that I'll put them on /gag (no posting right in chat) if they keep on doing their racism thing. They start quoting Hitler. I /gag them both. They leave 2 minutes later. Note: I didn't kick them, I only wanted to silence them for a couple of minutes.

The rest of the night, one of them who has a history with me, keeps whispering me insults and curses until I /ignore him. "I've been in the guild for a year, you asshole!" is one of his milder outbursts. Ten minutes later he's on the guild's forum to spew his anger. A 19 year old security guard. I seriously hope he doesn't have these anger management issues at work....
