When you dream, dream big. As deep as the ocean, as wide as the sky, as far as the sea and as free as the wind.

World of Warcraft
I know many of you will think I am nuts and will think it is hard to believe, but I am a player. A WoW player. Yes, believe it. I love this game.
My friend is a player and introduced me to it. I thought it was the stupidest game I had ever seen not to mention a complete waste of time. I would go over to her house and if she was playing, I would just think"how dumb". Well, she talked me into getting it (after a year). I did it mainly for an incentive for my kids and it works great!
It has slowly burrowed it's way under our skin and now we can't get rid of it. Even Bryan loves to play and I have noticed that he is much less stressed or ornery since he has started. He created a woman who looks like Hale Berry for his favorite character. She is a warrior and he picked her because he claims girls are meaner!
We all fight over the computer! It is so fun! I can't believe I like it.
It is a game where you create your own characters and it is a world like Lord of the rings where you have warriors, hunters, priests, mages, Shamans, and others. There is the bad guy side called "the Horde" and you can create bad guys if you want.
All my characters are good guys of course! I love my priest because I can go around healing people as they fight! You are given quests and can earn mounts and shape shift etc.. Certain characters get certain traits and abilities.
The point is, it has become a favorite for our family. Weird! who would have thought! I'd love to know who else out there loves it. It has really surprised me to find out how big the WoW family really is! Too fun!
