Not gone after all! I found the long version!
Michele asked about "The Game" so I have to answer :)
*******warning*****big geek fest follows, read at your own risk******************
Shea started playing the game in 2005 after watching my brother play it in our house from the day it was released. Justin (my bro) is the biggest game nerd ever! He's one of those regular looking guys who, if he had his way, would do nothing other than play games and run! We were "wow'd" by the graphics and Shea needed something to do ( since he was a new teacher and had so much free time??!!?)
While I was pregnant with Ian I'd sometimes watch Shea play eventually creating my own character on his account. I'm such a goob, I couldn't play it close to bedtime though since it would give me really weird dreams! After Ian was born I set up my own account (because I had so much free time with a newborn???!?) and got hooked.
Last summer I stopped playing...just went cold turkey. Just wasn't feeling the love. Had a level 64 Paladin and level 62 Priest...all Alliance...Cenarius server :)
Shea reached that point this week. Just too much time doing nothing he said, so plug now pulled!
We'll see if it lasts! And for nostalgia here we are...and I'll know how much you play if you can name the locations :)
