I had a bit of spare time at work. Hmm, should I go do a Navispam and try my luck? Or go write a blog post? Hmmm, I thought I want to give it a try. Off I went to Eldre'Thalas to see if I could see a certain someone - one of the most famous and well respected druid bloggers at present. That's right! Jasyla!
I logged in and did a /who Apotheosis and WOW. The guild was on... in Dragon Soul. Ok, talking in an instance is one thing, talking in a heroic raid... is another. Think Navi, think. Jas will have DBM on, so maybe she won't notice in the middle of a boss fight if I just do a status to get a DBM reply to see where they're up to, so I can see when they've finished killing the boss so I can quickly sneak a word in.
I whisper Jasyla. "Status"
I go an instant reply. "Hi!!"
Woah! She must be between boss fights because there were no DBM messages. I wasn't as nervous meeting Jasyla as I had some of my other heroes - she did ask me to come visit, after all. Just not, I am sure during heroic Dragon Soul ><
"Sorry for talking during DS!" I said. "I don't want to disturb."
"Oh, it's OK. We're just doing loot."
Maybe it's because I have listened to Jasyla a lot in the car, and that makes me feel like I know her better (even though it's not quite the same the other way around, but she has listened to my TNB as well) but talking to her is easy. I asked her when their raid would finish - ugh another 2 hours. That wasn't good. It would be time for me to get back to work by then, so maybe I could just come back another day. We chatted about a few other things and I had to tell her how excited I was to meet her and she said she was excited to be Navispammed. Wow! Jasyla, who is so well read and respected, was exited to be having a pic taken with silly little ME! Woot!
She asked me "Oh, do you want a guild invite?" And I was totally blown away. My head started to buzz. I was about to have an alt in Apotheosis, the #1 25 man guild on the server! "Wait, I haven't filled out an application," I said to Jasyla, thinking about a conversation I had with Godmother just the other day. "That's Ok, you're coming in as a friend," she said. Phew.
"Shh, don't tell anyone it's me," I said.
The guild invite was buggy so I relogged and got invited again. I joined and my screen started to fill with green guild chatter.
Navimie: Thank you for the invite :)
Navimie: OMG Tikari :)
Kaleri: THAT NAVI
Madrana: Welcome :)
Navimie: OMG kaleri!
Serrinne: who are we getting photo bombed?
Nowell: Is this the Twitter Navi?
And so on! Anyway, I was pretty excited having an Apotheosis tag that I was standing around near a tree taking a picture of myself....
When suddenly I saw an emote of a wave from Jasyla! I quickly turned around and there she was, in the flesh! Boy was I excited! :D
Jasyla was sitting out from a raid boss and came to take some pics with me. I was so chuffed - this was JASYLA, who I go to for all my resto help! One of my resto druid heroes! She probably would think I was being silly, but it is pretty exciting!
I was suprised she pulled out Jay Leno tree form. She says she likes the cooldown. I still hate tree. It's from vanilla, I think, when it first came out and it was so stupid and slow. I think I just have tree prejudice (it has improved in spades since Vanilla).
I was at work so I could harldy talk and had to AFK a lot, and I told Jasyla that I would probably have to leave but I thanked her for the photo opportunity! I didn't get much of a chance to chat to the other guildies (they were raiding after all) and I had work so I hope they didn't get upset at the neglect. So yay! Another awesome druid Navispammed! Cheers Jasyla!
