My gambling reaches a new low
I have a mostly written recap of Blizzcon, my recent accomplishments in Azeroth and Draenor, blah blah blah. But instead you get this bit of pseudo-WoW goodness. But first, #22 shadow damage warlock on my server, #7 Horde side, and #6/#3's in my 3v3 arena team.

oidhche jumped me yesterday when I was dropping off some DVDs to a co-worker. He sat me down in front of a computer and insisted that XD was broken. I insinuated it was him messing something up, and demanded screen shots. Got screen shots last night, took a look, and determined he was doing something within the OU that broke things.

I like to gamble on things. I don't bet on professional sports or the lottery or poker or the like. Maybe I got the love for the action from aaronkliger or Artie Lange, but I like to bet on everyday events. Will person X still be out sick tomorrow? Will utini2 lose in tennis to feffthekidd yet again? Will person Y bail on dinner? Betting on a basketball game isn't as much fun as betting who was in a movie. I'd rather bet on the performance of my friends than that of a horse.
Katie: "Have you tried to argue with kingfox? It's impossible. He just looks right. See? Look at that expression."
Katie: "You can't disagree with kingfox. He's always right."
So I bet oidhche that moving his computer to a different OU will cause the problem to go away. Gave him five to one odds. But he refused to bet cash... so we bet gold. He gets five hundred gold if I'm wrong, I get one hundred gold if I'm right. This isn't such a great solution, as I know he's good for the cash, but he's low on gold. I have a feeling he'll be borrowing from palingyuan to cover the debt.

Sadly, I've bet gold before. A person I used to run my current guild with and I used to bet on boss attempts all the time.

Congrats to my cousin Rachel on her new daughter! As my mom noted, she blogged from the waiting room while waiting to be induced. That's so awesome.

What is I refuse to cover the bet? He does dailies way more often than I do, work schedule just doesn't allow time for frivilous pursuits of gold making.

I'll have to start charging him interest, I guess.

windexcowboy and I still think it's a group policy.

But you'll get your gold.

I still wonder if the mountain was truly brought to Mohammed, to be honest. We'll take a deeper look.

Hell, can I remote desktop into that puppy later on tonight? No, that won't work, Deploy has no password and thus is ineligible for rights to let me do so. Damn the man.

You won eh? Do I get any return on my investment in you?
kingfox From: kingfox Date: August 16th, 2007 10:46 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Heh, should I just send it to you or a percentage of it to you?

I'll bring the cash to our raid tonight and you can try to keep it all to yourself.

Srsly. The AH is the most fun part of the game for me. Prospecting market changes on the test realms, buying up things useful there or liquidating things no longer needed... that's the real fun.

In the US nearly 750,000 owners are in trouble – this is up about 96% for the first eight months of this year (2007). You must first asses your ability to make payments on your loan before you consider the steps that need to be made to stop foreclosure and the refinance options available to you. If you are buried in debt then you may not b able to carry the burden of even a lower payment. You must ask yourself if the lower payment is better for your budget than getting in a lower rent situation. If saving your home from foreclosure is a viable option to consider then you must make contact with the lender who is trying to foreclose on your property. It is likely that they are already in contact with you so this may be easy to do. If you are several months over due you might need to make up a payment or two to negotiate with them to stop foreclosure. You can also show proof of your progress to refinance your home and stop foreclosure. The loan company or lender you are dealing with may have private investors that can help you out. Many foreclosure investors are in constant contact with lending institutions seeking loan opportunities for foreclosure properties.
