Finding t-shirts for my son to wear is a fairly simple affair; he loves superheroes and Minecraft – things that are very mainstream these days – and subsequently has acquired quite the collection. In fact, he could probably change t-shirts every hour and still have a pile to choose from by the end of the day.
Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for any other items of clothing that he may need to wear. Between me juggling this whole ‘working parent’ thing and my husband still learning the ropes of being a stay-at-home, getting kids dressed in the morning is like some really lame version of Where’s Waldo, where instead of scanning colourful art you’re digging through mount washing.
Have you ever noticed that it always seems to be the same culprits who go missing? Below are the three items of clothing we’re most likely to lose:
I dunno about you guys, but my 2016 has been weird. Plenty of good things have happened, but so too have plenty of not-so-good things. Here is a quick summary of my 2016 so far, listed in no particular order:
A few days before my husband inexplicably quit his job, I had placed an order with the Blizzard Gear store.

Our little bundle of goodness arrived today, and included in it was this Heroes of the Storm Hacci Top by We Love Fine:
Three months ago I wrote about how my husband impulsively decided to quit his job. Thankfully, everything worked out really well in the end, and I landed a casual job that pays me good money to do what I love — writing and creating graphics — while also allowing me to finish in time to pick up my son from school. But, perhaps it worked out a little too well, because Disconcur has gone and done it again; he finishes up at his current job on Monday and will instead focus on building a career out of streaming and content creation. Eek!
A good friend of mine wrote about a negative experience she had with a guild member during an alt raid a few weeks back, and it really got me thinking about just how important casual raids are to the MMO genre.
Casual raids can provide guilds a great opportunity to introduce new blood into the group without throwing off the synergy of the progression group if they’re a bad egg. They can serve as the perfect training for players completely new to raiding, while also providing veteran players an opportunity to gain both experience and gear on an alternative character.
