Liebster Award


Navimie tagged me for a Liebster award last year but due to busy/lazy life, I put it aside, but as she nominated me again this year, and I had already half finished it, I will half participate this year! I won't be tagging and making questions. So here are my answers to Navimie's questions and 11 random facts:

Who is your favourite villain and why?
The Wicked Witch of the West! I have loved The Wizard of Oz since my Mum hired it for me one day when I was home from school sick. I watched it twice that day, once when my sister came home from school and she liked Glinda... of course. I've always felt bad for her, her sister is dead! Of course she is upset!

What sport do you wish you were really good at?
I don't think I wish I was really good at any sport, I am not bad at sports, but I do wish I had the time to commit to playing a team sport.

Tell me who is your favourite Disney character and why.
Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. He is a mischievous cat, of course I love him! :D 

If you were granted one wish of anything you wanted, what would you wish for?
For every cat to have a happy home! For every animal to live without cruelty.

What is the dumbest thing you have done in regards to your computer?
Hmmm, I don't clean it as much as I should for someone who lets cats sleep on the top vents. I also rarely turn it off. I probably go to websites that are dangerous while looking for TV shows.

If you had the ability to go back in time, who would you want to meet and what would be the one burning question you would ask them?
I feel like I'd end up in a situation like 'You can travel back in time to talk to this person but HAHA... You don't speak their language!' From a psychological POV, I'd like to ask a lot of bad people what they feel was the turning point that lead them to the things they did.

You have won a Nobel Prize! What do you wish you won the prize for?
Saving all the animals!
Which would be more devastating - loss of hearing, loss of vision or loss of both hands?
Hearing probably. I am always listening to music. Any of them would be awful though!

In World of Warcraft, who would you like to see as a boss encounter one day, and how would you design that fight?
I'd like to see a goblin female boss, in an engineering workshop where to defeat her, you must use her inventions against her!

What is the most embarrassing thing you've said to someone you wanted to impress?
I can't think of anything I've said to try to impress someone, but I have failed to say anything in front of people I have wanted to impress. When I was in Yr 9, my cousin was staying with my family for the holidays and he was friends with an older guy whom I had a crush on, the guy came to my house one day, I answered the door, he asked if my cousin were home and I just stared at him. He stared back at me and then said 'Well, is he?' I let him in the house and showed him to the living room where my cousin was and then hid in my room til I knew he was gone.

You've been chosen to go onto a game show! Which game show would you go on?
Pointless or Countdown!

The object of Pointless is to to provide a correct answer that the least amount of people surveyed gave. Think the opposite of Family Feud (kind of)! The game has 4 teams and the team with the most points at the end of each round is eliminated.

Countdown I have only seen a few times, but I loved it! It has 2 types of rounds, letter rounds and a numbers round. For the letter rounds one contestant will choose 9 tiles with letters on them and are then asked to find the largest word they can from those letters. (Navi would love this game)! The contestant with the most points wins the points for that round. For the numbers round, a contestant will choose 6 random number tiles. A random 3 digit number is then generated and the contestants are tasked with combining the 6 numbers from the tiles to reach the RNG number using using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

11 Random Luxy facts:
  • It takes me a really long time to choose between Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Strawberry Cheesecake, like, a reeeaaaallllllllly long time. Half an hour in 7-Eleven kind of long time.
  • I <3 every cat
  • And cat people. I don't just want to be friends with every cat, I want to be friends with every person who loves cat.
  • I am allergic to bananas.
  • I regularly watch the end of the last episode of Six Feet Under just to cry.
  • I like covers of David Bowie songs more than the originals. Like Bauhaus, Nina Hagen and Seu Jorge.
  • I once sat stationary in my car for 20 minutes while a kangaroo stood in front of me because I was too scared to drive around a corner on the wrong side of the road to pass it. Yay, country roads.
  • My head is kind of small, regular headsets set to the smallest are still kind of too big for me.
  • I also happen to break headsets a lot. Not just my own, don't leave your headsets near me. EVER. I don't have a habit of breaking things aside from headsets though, so everything else is safe.
  • I love horror movies. All of them, even the reallllyyyyy bad ones.
  • I am addicted to Chapstick. Pomegranate Gumdrop being my current favourite. 
My current hoard of Chapsticks!
My responses to more Liebster questions can be found on my awesome guildies blogs - Just Mctacky and Arelion's Realm!

I will tryyyy to post something WoW related soon, but I've done so much in WoD, where would I start?

So Long, Farewell, Mists of Pandaria

As I was thinking of a title for this post, I got this song stuck in my head. I won't apologise!
'So long, farewell
Auf Wiedersehen, goodnight
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight'
The Arboretum in The Jade Forest is one of my favourite places in Pandaria.
'So long, farewell
Auf Wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu
To you and you and you'
Adieu, Charm Maker. Adieu, Mythic Vendor. Adieu, Zandalari Warscout... I will see you again some day, I'm sure, but for now, you may keep your stolen goods!
'I'm glad to go
I cannot tell a lie
I flit, I float
I fleetly flee, I fly'
The last mount that I obtained this expansion will take me into Warlords of Draenor, where I shall no longer be able to fly!

I wish I could say I was going to miss the scenery, the raids, the zones, but I am ready for WoD! I can't see myself coming back to Pandaria any time soon, but eventually I will be back to collect the last of the mounts that eluded me.

I hope everyone has an awesome launch day without any of the usual hiccups that I seem to experience!

Mini-Post: It Might Just Save Your Life

I saw people getting this achievement on the first day of 6.0 and was a little curious, but asking around it seemed like I would have to wait until the Love is in the Air event to get it. This weekend Mctacky said to me on vent 'Luxy, I am about to get something you don't have!' 'Wuuuut iiiis iiiiit?' Then it popped up in guild. 'TELL ME HOW?!' He mentioned a necklace and I assumed he meant the bracelet thingies that I knew I didn't have. Turns out he used Winking Eye of Love, I wondered if I had one sitting around on any toon. I logged over to my druid and she was wearing Heartbreak Charm! Yay!
If you happen to still have any of the neck pieces (item level 480) that drop from Apothecary Hummel during the Love is in the Air world event, be sure to unleash the power of love! Ew... but 10 points! NOW! Instead of 4 months from now!

There are 5 different neck pieces:

Sweet Perfume Broach
Shard of Pirouetting Happiness
Choker of the Pure Heart
Heartbreak Charm
Winking Eye of Love

Just keep your winking away from me please.
