Off the wagon

I fell of the wagon on Tuesday night, spending nearly 2 hours online in the World of Warcraft. A new patch came out and I wanted to see it, but because of the patch there was all kinds of server problems and I winded up wandering around on a new character, pretty much just messing around and doing nothing at all.

The following day, I spent another 3 hours playing my old character Smee, trying out some of the new stuff they had added.

I got to talking to some of my old guild members.. many of whom were extremely excited to see me online, just about everyone sent me a message about when I was coming back, and how much they missed me. I guess I provided a sense of "ease" as well as "comedic relief" to some people from some of the wisecracks I used to make.

Truly, I did get a sense of comraderie that I've missed since quitting.

There's a song that's been in my head for the past 2 weeks now, it's a song by Third Day, called "Your Love Oh Lord". It's a popular song, not new or anything. I find that it really speaks to me. I wish I had the CD so I could listen to it but instead I have to settle for playing it and singing it, which isn't nearly as great.

Your love, oh Lord, reaches to the heavens.
Your faithfulness stretches to the sky.
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains.
Your justice flows like the oceans tide.

And I will lift my voice, to worship you my King.
And I will find my strength, in the shadow of your wings.

Your love, oh Lord, reaches to the heavens.
Your faithfulness stretches to the sky.
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains.
Your justice flows like the oceans tide.

And I will lift my voice, to worship you my King.
And I will find my strength, in the shadow of your wings.

Your love, oh Lord, reaches to the heavens.
Your faithfulness stretches to the sky.

I think I have the CD if you want it. I have a bunch of third day CDs. I just have to dig around.

I recently heard the CD version of this song.. it doesn't sound as good as if you just play an acoustic guitar with it.

I know -- I need to stop playing, it's bad. People online kept saying how much they missed me and couldn't wait til I'd return permanently. There's a lot of people quitting though. After all it's been over 16 months now.

I really like the picture on your blog, but the colour black...that could go I guess. Sometimes it is nice to give it a completely different look, just for fun. :)
