I’m a busy tree, besides the 9-5 I also:

  • volunteer at a local ski resort 1 day a week helping disabled people learn to ski,
  • am a volunteer/call firefighter,
  • am the events chair for my alma mater’s hockey team booster club (Go Cats!),
  • run my own small catering company,
  • take part in the occasional play at the local community theater.

So maybe it’s not a huge surprise that Sunday night half way through a raid I started to feel sleepy, really sleepy. After our first attempt on Solarian (if you’re the bomb get out), I dutifully ran back and made it to the chamber before the trash re-spawned. This is where the details get foggy, in my mind we were waiting to get some replacements in and they were going to need summons because the trash timer was up (I have no idea if this was really the case) so I put my head down for a second “Just resting my eyes“.

The next thing I know I wake up and I see “You have been removed from the guild by ***” What!? How long was I out for? What the hell is going on??? I realize I must have been asleep for a while, and with my corpse lying on the floor (they must have attempted with me asleep) they couldn’t even replace me. So in frustration one of the guild officers kicked me. Still crusty eyed but now wide awake, I begin trying to explain myself through tells.

A few people who I’ve been playing with for over a year now were understanding, others were not they claimed that I was lying and that I’d gone AFK and just not said anything or had the decency to log. Thankfully I have a strong repertoire with the Guild Leader and when he came online a few minutes later he re-invited me to the guild, even restored me to my previous rank. Thanks Myra.

Last night I couldn’t get to my computer in time to raid, boring ass meeting at the fire station, so I’m not sure what my status is. I may be a pariah or I may be forgiven, I’ll know soon enough I guess.

If the former is true does anyone know a raiding guild that needs a narcoleptic >16k +Healing Druid? I’ll mention you in my blog…
