10 Years in the Making (repost)

March 1999.  I was on a 4 day bus ride from Saint John, NB to San Diego.  From one corner of the continent to the far corner.  If you want to see America in whirlwind fashion, Greyhound is the way to go.  It probably cost me half as much for the short bus from here to the nearest Greyhound terminal in Maine, but once I got there, I took full advantage of their “Anywhere in Continental USA for $99” deal.  It was the first time I had done anything crazy like that, and I saw some interesting sights, and some interesting people.

I had decided to reinvent myself, and take a job at a fledgling computer game company in San Diego.  The game was EverQuest, and it’s hard to imagine that this was basically an unproven genre at the time…  How many games have built off the popularity of EQ?

So for 4 days I rode that bus.  I noticed that I wasn’t the only one on an extended trip, but I was by far the most seasoned traveler at the end of it.  I heard people complain about being on the bus for 2 days.  Yeah, I wish I was only on the bus for 2 days.  By the end of the 4th day I was definitely in need of a shower, and a real bed.  Or in my case, a couch. But it was definitely an experience.

Cooking For Orcs! Unofficial Tauren World of Warcraft Cookbook? Zug Zug!

Published September 22, 2010 - 0 Comments

It’s amazing what you can find online sometimes. I was bored and looking through affiliate programs, and came across the Tauren Chef Cookbook. I don’t play World of Warcraft, but I’m familiar with the genre.  I’ve played plenty of Dungeons and Dragons in my day… many of the Warcraft games… and even worked for Verant Interactive for a little bit on EverQuest.  Oh… and I can cook!  So something like this easily caught my eye and made me laugh.

How could you possibly not enjoy the likes of Delicious Cave Mold Cookies?  Or Goblin Deviled Clams? Actually some of the stuff looks pretty neat!  It’s all real food… it’s all been prepared in a kitchen, and isn’t merely fantasy recipes.  Oh, and it’s not just for people who play WoW, either.  If you’re looking for something a little different, then chances are, this e-book has it.

Cave Mold Cookies

I don’t usually dabble too much in affiliate programs, but I think that I’m going to take a closer look at my Commission Junction and ClickBank accounts.  I’m also waiting to hear back from a top pickling and canning company on my application to list them on my Lady Ashburnham Pickles site!  🙂

And yes… I fully intend to buy this e-book, so watch out the next time you come to visit.  You just might be served Buzzard Bites, or Roast Raptor!

If anyone else dares to buy this e-book, please let me know how you make out with any of the recipes!  Maybe we can exchange stories!
