Ever have one of those weekends where things keep going wrong but still turn out great?
That pretty much summed up this past weekend for me – all kinds of silly little things not going as they should, but still probably the best weekend I’ve had in the past few months.
So I was pretty darn tired when 11 pm Sunday rolled around and it was time to stream. Most of my brain cells* were screaming, “SLEEP!” But there were a few screaming, “RENOWN BOOST WEEKEND!”
I didn’t have anyone with sagas complete or even nearly complete, so I was tempted to go for sleep. But the Flower Sniffers are fast closing in on level 150, and that 30% renown boost was too good to pass up.
Ergo, I compromised, zerging through the heroic Pirates saga on level 30 Acanthia, who still had a renown pot going from the last guild renown weekend. Slvr brought his level 23 barb, we skipped Irestone, and in just about an hour we picked up a decent chunk of renown.
* – I may be giving myself far too much credit by calling them “brain cells,” but that flows better than “miscellaneous cells that live inside my head.”
So here’s what went wrong this weekend (some for me, some for the person I was with, some for both of us):
- Dead car battery
- Lots and lots and LOTS of driving
- Somewhat unexpected extra driving
- Burnt-out taillight
- Slow service and crappy food
- Smelly hotel room with filthy tub/shower
- Seriously major work emergency
- Dead car battery, again
- Weirdly heavy traffic
- Road construction
- Lost wallet
- Were served food that contained something one of us can’t eat, after asking the waitress to make sure nothing like that would be in it
And yet… ’twas a really great weekend. I’m happy to report that the taillight was replaced easily, the wallet was found with all its contents intact, and we were able to swap out the unwanted food item for something acceptable.The driving is mostly over – at least for a few weeks. 😀 The work emergency is handled as much as is possible at this point. The dead battery turned out to be defective and has been replaced. And neither of us will ever stay at Red Roof Inn in South Williamsport again. LOL
