Waiting on a friend

Or, more to the point, all my friends are waiting on me.

That’s because I’m not 70 and I don’t have the lickety-split flying mounts yet — but Eloise is now halfway through 69 and I’m increasingly starting to wonder how I’ll even afford that riding skill upgrade. It’s going to cost me somewhere in the region of 4500 gold, though I suppose I could grind some rep and bring that down by a not-inconsiderable 500 if I manage to get to exalted. (Hah!)

Just a few days ago that Artisan Riding skill didn’t seem like much of an issue, because I still haven’t really internalised my new levelling pace. Now it’s staring me in the face and I don’t know if I want to importune my friends for loans I’m not sure I could repay in the next 5 years, even if the interest rates are good. I’m rather better at being the loaner than the loanee, too.

So, fellow WoWers — advice? Ideas? Ways of making a quick buck that don’t involve any special skills (other than fishing, cooking and skinning) or dancing naked on mailboxes? Those mailboxes are small and they’re usually kinda crowded. Besides, it’s Winter Veil – it’s cold!

Also, this critter made me laugh. The EQ/EQ2ers out there will know why.

I may or may not post tomorrow. If I don’t, have a marvellous [insert festival/holiday/weird cultish observance]! Thanks for sticking with me through these rather droughty posting times.
