Hi Aprillian, Leeta, Rogueslayer, Tedrah and all of our awesome wow family!
  Hope everyone is having a awesome week, in an out game!

Sorry nothing to report as far as myself playing the game this past week. Those today I did log on only cause Reprint sent me a message on facebook, saying he was about too hit 90! And wanted me there to see him do it, his first 90 toon, Woot, Congrats Reprint awesome job! So while we were on Dreams came on too and we all went to the Timeless Isles, it was fun and I want to say thank you guys I needed that :)
I've included a picture of Reprint and his new level 90, also sending a picture of my buddy Mstake and his new mount. As long as I've been playing with Moe (Mstake) I didn't know that he had never gotten a dragon until we did this run! Talk about happy he was shouting all about his new mount in guild chat lol
My modem went out so had to get a new one took the company almost a week to get it here, but never the less I did have
some fun this week. Went shopping, yep drove my beautiful red pickup and headed to town, not just one day but four day's all total! With four boy's at home most of the time food just doesn't last, and their all big eaters! Oh and one doctor's app., that I kept even surprised my self on that one I really hate doctors! This was for blood so I got too fast for 12 hours as if that's a big deal, really it's not except not having my coffee in the morning, and the 7am thing! Don't move so well without my coffee and not safe to be around me either, like my husband asked my son one morning. Are you outside your mind, you mom hasn't had her coffee yet, only he didn't say it so nice lol
Well that's it for me if it hadn't been for Reprint you wouldn't have gotten an email from me this week, my mind has been on other things. So trying to play isn't working at this point even with the new modem, but give me another week and I'll be my old self again.

Love & Kisses
Pixie & Juuno
PS Love all of you and knowing your just a click away really is helping, also Big Steve's song is keeping the bad thoughts & evil people from causing me anymore pain. Thanks guys for all you have done and are doing for me.

Shout Outs & Thank You



Clan of Darkness

Hello Ctrlaltwow Crew
It has never happened that I write to you 2 weeks in a row but I come bearing a gift.
I won the top 25 in Guild activity competition we had last week in the game. I won an Armored Bloodwing and I thank Donnie for the gift. I already have this mount so I thought I would give it to you Ladies to give away.
You might be able to have a competition of your own and get somebody to make you a new Email bumper.
Anyway I love the new line up. You Ladies are awesome. Have a great week.
Sincerely Matahorn
Ps I must thank Donnie for letting me give away my prize.

Hi Aprillian, Leeta, Rogueslayer, Tedrah and all of our awesome wow family!
  Hope everyone is having a awesome week, in an out game!
First of all want to say thank you for all of the help with are guild bank, awesome job guys! Made my work a lot easier last night, got
to say our bank looks amazing right now. Of course I know it won't last but still it's clean and so far nice and neat or it was when I logged off last night. Shaggy you better not have gone and messed it up! lol And hey no
poking while I'm cleaning that was so totaling unfair!
 Aprillian good job last week figuring out what the Tuft of Yak Fur was, I did think about explaining it in my email, but figured you would have more fun finding out
just what it was :)  And you girls did an awesome job!
Okay my week in wow didn't happen can't seem to keep my mind on the game, blame the weather or people from my past all of a sudden showing up. Sending unwanted friends request on Facebook, kind of like someone slapping you in the face. Thought five years ago I made it plan their not welcome in my live, I'm not a very forgiving person when it comes to something's.  
But I do have some awesome news, my oldest son is in the process of buying a home, and a couple more months his wife and son will be up here. He is only 2 hours away by the coast says they don't have any snow down there, hey wait a minute! They have no snow and we've still got a good couple of feet. Hmm maybe I should sell my home and buy
a cottage down that way, nope I love my place so I'll put up with the snow :)
But I can go and visit, play in the water do a little off game fishing and eat lobster, sit and watch the sun go down over the water. Been a long time since I've done that and nothing prettier then a full moon over the ocean :)

Hugs & Kisses
Pixie & Juuno
PS This week's pet is donated by Bruus a Sapphire Cub :)

Hi my fellow altaholics!  I convinced Decker to do an audio with me!  /happydance

So here it is. Try not to laugh at me too much?  Even though I'm not the one who forgot her name…
audio by Rain


From one altoholic to another.
Dear Ctrl alt wow,

                            Fallenangelz here from proudmoore, I'm a long time wow player of 6 years with many alts across many servers proudmoore being my main server. I have been listening to your podcast for quite a while, 7 months to be exact and I am really enjoying listening to the show while playing the game. Since I am an altoholic myself this is the right show for me :). Currently I'm on my lonesome over at proudmoore with most my friends having stopped playing the game. Due to this I am in a guild with just my toons and as you can imagine this gets quite lonely after a while. I miss the days where I can just bring a group of friends together and raid old content or just mess around seeing how far we can level without anyone dying (hehe) and I long for these experiences again.

So with that said I am looking for a new home to level some alts at, a new set of friends to have some adventures with and just to have some plain old fun. Your guild came to mind when thinking of this, so I would love to be a part of your guild if you would have me as I am quite an altoholic myself.

Looking forward to your next show.

Fallenangelz

PS. I have already made a character over on earthen ring named fallenangelz that I am leveling in anticipation :) I guess I just cant stop making characters but you know what that's like...right?



The week that had lil to no Big G in it
Lets see to record a audio or not to record that is the question so lil to report but then again they all love my voice screw it I shall record but now what to say.
Big G


Hey CAW!

Just wanted to drop you a line to say hello because I know I haven't been around much. I have been rather scattered lately when it comes to game time. That said, I have been pretty dedicated to Blizzard games... just not one in particular. I have played some Hearthstone in my on-going quest to not be terrible at it and I also surprised myself by trying Diablo 3 again since abandoning it after one playthrough. I have been playing WoW, but... well, primarily Alliance side. I'm about 30% away from having a second level 90 Shaman. Yes, I will have only leveled two characters from 1 to 90 and they are both Shamans. I have a 90 hunter but that was my pre-order boost. I guess I must like Shamans a bit. Not on the Leeta-Warlock level but still, quite keen.

Hope you, the chat room, and all of the CoD guildies are doing well.

For the Alli... er Horde and for the TARDIS.

Hartnell


Hello all!

Hope I'm not totally too late for this week!

Just wishing you all a happy April! Haven't been playing much, as I've been on holiday in New Zealand - paradise on the beach and all that! But I am in-game boosting my DK to 90 as we speak. I'm excited about the announcement of the Alpha, but staying away from patch notes, as I'm sure they are going to change a million times.

Much love to you all you lovely hosts and to everyone in COD!

For the Horde!!
