I was tagged by the dwarven battle medic, Fannon to take up this challenge, 6x6x6: The Challenge of Sixes, originally started by Gnomeageddon this time around. This is the first time I’ve heard of this challenge, but hey, this sounds like a ton of fun! It’s pretty easy- all you have to do is pick an image folder on your hard drive and go to the sixth image in the sixth sub-folder. You publish the image and add a few words about it, if you want to.
That’s easy, but hold on your hats, folks. Fannon has added a twist to this challenge, and renaming it the The Battle Medic Rule of Six by Six by Six. Instead of doing just one folder, the Battle Medic tradition calls for a few! Since the torch was passed down to me, I’ll carry it on by starting with..
My World of Warcraft Screenshot folder:
My screenshot folder does not have any subfolders. Yeah, I know, the horror, considering how many screenshots I’ve taken. A total of 1293 screenshots in this folder, and that’s not even counting my old WoW screenshots from my laptop. Since there were no sub folders, I’ll just pick the sixth image from this folder:
I like to organize my files by date, so for this image, this was taken on January 26, the last time I raided before going on my trip. I’m not sure what I was doing, but I liked how the aspects were looking in the background and were messing around while I was waiting for the raid to pull. There really isn’t much of a story behind this picture, but I can tell you I love taking random pictures at random times. I’d look at them later on and find some really great pictures that sometimes were completely unintended, those are great to use for post images or as fillers. This picture will eventually be used some day
Screenshots folder: Six Down and Six Across
I don’t know what was going on in that auction house that day I walked in on my paladin, Oriolle. There were fireworks going off nonstop and smoke billowing out of the ground in purples and greens. There were druids in seal form swimming around! I couldn’t figure out how they were doing that, because if I can swim on land as a seal, I’d totally do it on my druid too!
It’s somewhat a habit of mine to take pictures of players doing silly things like this, or when they’re flying around on their mounts and freeze mid-air upside down. I see players flying their mounts in a looping circle on their backs, and that’s awesome as heck, except it frustrates me because I have no clue how to do that too. Someday, I’ll learn the secrets to all this
I’ll have to explain how I organize things on my hard drive for my website. Right now, the folder for everything from this site is actually a sub folder of a folder called “websites”. I have several folders for different websites, and my WoW blog isn’t the only one I manage. It is so important to keep each website seperate from each other, so I’ve typed in different domain names as actual folder names. There are other websites that I’ve made for other people that also reside in their own folders in the website folder.
So let’s find out what the sixth image in the sixth subfolder of misspewpew.com is:
Ah, ha ha. I was asked to draw up some pictures for strategy on Hagara for my raid team.. I made a few pictures outlining each phase, what the spells were and what to do in each phase. The pictures weren’t fancy, but it got the job done with a graphic tablet and Photoshop. I got my information from icy veins and drew everything out in pictures the best I could to convey movements that icy-veins were calling for in their guide on heroic Hagara. I’ve never posted any of my raiding stuff that I’ve done for the team, and this stuff is in the misspewpew.com folder because I write about my raid experiences there. I don’t want to mix my WoW stuff with anything else on my computer, or else it’d become a ugly mess

We’ve just found ourselves a old background I used to have for my articles. It’s actually got a transparent background so it would work with any color, and you would still see the arcane circles. I removed it because I wanted a cleaner background for my posts and opted to have my posts displayed on a plain white background in their own containers. I might use it again someday, but it’ll likely be for something like the footer or an aside container. As much as I love to mess around with different pictures to use for backgrounds, I still have to keep it to a minimum for folks with slower internet connections
Luckily for us, in this folder there are tons of sub-folders floating around full of goodies. Like this one as the sixth image in the sixth subfolder.. oh, gee. It’s the folder where there are pictures of me and other people. I figure it won’t hurt to post a picture of me because I’ve seen some bloggers do the same. I used to be a huge fan of make-up and I used to frequent the MAC cosmetic counter in the malls. Whenever I came home, I’d excitedly try on the new eyeshadows I bought from the store and then take pictures of the results. This photo is one of those, that I kept for my personal use because I thought it was a lovely picture.
You can really see how grey my eyes are- I’m not kidding you, I have steel grey eyes. I’ve been told it’s a beautiful color, and I agree sometimes, but my eyes have NO COLOR. Grey is NOT a color. Why wasn’t I born with something more colorful, like perhaps blue? At least I didn’t get stuck with brown eyes
And finally, the last one…
I went on a hiking trip with some friends a few years ago. It was my first time hiking in southern Alberta, and you can bet it was hot that day! I was kicking myself for wearing pants the entire day and were trying my best to keep myself cool, short from stripping down. We were hiking through what seemed to be like a desert that day. We stopped somewhere for a quick break and broke out the beer. So you can see me hanging out here with a can of beer in my hand (yes, I drink beer!).
I miss hiking to be honest. I suppose, as people got married and started having families, there isn’t really anyone around who would have the time to dedicate a few days to camping with me in the back country. It’s unfortunate, but I’m glad I got to do a lot of those trips when we were younger before life started bogging everyone down. Ah well.
That will be all for the challenge, I hope I did a good job
There are tons of posts for me to do- I recently started a write up on the revised MoP talents for druids and I still have my 20 days of WoW blogging to do. I’ve been trying to space out posts by a day but this month will be the first month where this site will have been posting on a nearly daily basis from me and the rest of the crew here. Xtasia got a couple of lovely emails asking for help with managing some raids, so you can definitely see that coming up in Guildmaster QQ as well in the next few days, on top of my own posts.
Now who do I pass the torch to?
