LAN Party and Thanksgiving

Let's not LAN party over the upcoming holiday, okay? Forest is going to be busy and I just can't afford it with this lack of income. I'll probably do like last year and feast on bologna sandwiches. Really frustrating too.

I love Thanksgiving and make a mean dressing (use chicken not turkey). Everyone always brags on the beach house potato salad. Real cranberry sauce is super as is good giblet gravy.

Kolcannon is another potato dish that has cabbage and ham or bacon in it plus shallots. It's in the top 5 of my favorite foods. It is an Irish concoction that is over 1000 years old. I am even Jonesing for green bean casserole! LOL.

It's a great holiday and provides the opportunity to thank our Lord for his Grace. So get together with family and we'll look to have a Christmas party for our fellow geeks. Remember, family is more important than Guild Wars. It will be fun to gather a group of our 'Guild Wars family' next month and enjoy a few hours wandering through the three continents.

Guild Wars players: Forest wants some of us to gather this weekend for a dungeon run with huge rewards, i.e. Slavers Exile. We can always have a long distance LAN Party since our Teamspeak server is purring.

News from the GW2 Tweets on professions: "Remaining four professions: at least one is a returning profession, at least one is similar with a different name, and at least one is new."

So, only one returning profession. Exciting to see what it will be.


My money's on the Mes.

I'm also thinking there'll be some sort of rogue/thief/assassin combo. That would be very cool.

My vote's with you. Will be real disappointed if it's not a Mesmer. My second favorite profession with Necromancer being first. You know, it's apparent there will be several phases and other professions may follow, Heck, I like all of them!
