As possibly the only person who plays WoW but doesn’t have a seapony, I’ve been doing a lot of fishing this past week.
Now I’m the first to admit my fishing tolerance is low. In fact I’d rather be doing pretty much anything, including washing the dishes than fishing but I want a seahorse in a bubble so I’m trying to push through the boredom barrier.
So, there I was returning from fishing up a couple of crates when I had a proper look at my screen.
Is it just me or is there something rather creepy about that picture? Her eyes are slightly glazed and she’s being towed through the air by an evil fairground balloon. In fact she looks like a zombie gnome.
After writing my post on my Faire transmogrification, I re-read Something Wicked This Way Comes and on looking at this screenshot I found Bradbury’s line repeating itself in my head.
“But why a wax crone flung out in a night balloon to search?”
I suppose my gnome is lighter than Bradbury’s Dust Witch, she doesn’t need a basket just the balloon to drift over head spying on the comings and goings below.
What is Silas Darkmoon really up to and more importantly where is my seapony?
