The Warcraft problem

Things are about to get very frantic. Not Trump related, shockingly.....

For the last 16 years World of Warcraft has been my constant companion. And the launch of a new expansion, about once every two years, is the pinnacle of excitement for me. To the point where for the first few weeks I might only sleep 2-3 hours a day. It turns out the next expansion is launching some time next month. Also next month, Thanksgiving. And of course before Thanksgiving I need 3-4 weeks for test recipes and menu prep. And I'll likely be up there for a week or so?

So I have 9 weeks of stuff to cram into 5 weeks, maybe less. Plus the election. Plus dealing with not spreading the plague across the country. Plus relearning how the world outside my apartment works. I really have been self isolating too much. Even as much of a hermit as i am, that's not the sort of life I want to lead.

It's going to be very odd going from work at home shut-in to frantic chef/traveler. It's also going to be weird playing Wow 22 hours a day to suddenly not playing at all and flying up to Montana to be social. I'm not great at social even during normal times.

But.... Oh well. It is what it is.

We don't know exactly when the WoW expansion will drop, just that it won't be this month. So it could be even worse I suppose. It could drop the week before Thanksgiving, or the same week. In which case Jon will be unhappy. I'd actually prefer they delay it until next year if that's going to be the case. Travel holidays and WoW expansions shouldn't ever mix.
