Introductions

I’m a little – okay, a lot – late to this party, but after some convincing from another blogger I’ve finally decided to tackle Saga’s 20 Days of WoW Blogging Challenge! I always wanted to do these, but never quite got around to it.

The topic for day 1 is introductions. I feel a little odd giving an introduction when I’ve been at this blogging stuff for almost 2 years, but here we go…

Hi! My name is Jasyla. Or Pam, depending on how well you know me. I am a proud Canadian – I love poutine and am polite to strangers – and I’ve lived in the Toronto area for my whole life.

I’ve been a gamer since the time I was first able to sit in front of a computer without falling off the chair. The earliest games I can remember playing are Qbert, the Oregon Trail and Pong. From there I moved on to adventure games like Maniac Mansion and The Secret of Monkey Island and eventually got hooked on consoles, from NES to Playstation to XBox.

I’ve been playing World of Warcraft since the spring of 2006. Jasyla the Druid was the first character I created, and has been my main the whole time. Though I started off as Balance, I’ve been a Resto Druid fangirl ever since I got dragged into my first Zul’Gurub raid at level 56 because my guild was desperate for healers. I play WoW with two guilds. My druid is a raider, sometime PVPer and full-time achievement whore in Apotheosis. I also raid as a Disc Priest (previously a Resto Shaman and Hunter) in Arm of Hades.

In real life I work for government doing web stuff, but who wants to talk about work?

I like to read and I try to get through at least a couple of books a month. End-of-the-world books are my favorite genre (sub-genre?), but I’ll read most types of fiction and also really enjoy reading about science, astronomy in particular. I love to cook (and eat) great food, drink good wine and play with kittens. I’m also hooked on a number of TV series – currently watching Castle, The Walking Dead, Glee and America’s Next Top Model, I’m a big MMA fan (the bloodier the fight, the better) and I have an unnatural fondness for ridiculous old game shows.

That’s about all I can think of for now. If you want to know anything else, just ask!

  1. I absolutely LOVE astronomy! I have a handful of books on that, myself, including a gigantic 1.5 ft x 2 ft hard cover that’s packed with awesome reading … and not to mention gorgeous, very large, galactic photos and star clusters 🙂

    • Ooh, I like when they have pictures 🙂

      I’ve got the regular editions of most of Stephen Hawking’s stuff, but they also come in big hardcovers (with pictures!) that I’d like to pick up at some point.

  2. Yay for post- and apocalyptic fiction! It’s a bit creepy when I think about it, but there’s nothing better for me than a story where 99% of the population dies 😛 Any recommendations? I’ve read a lot of the “classics” but I’m sure there’s things I missed.
