07:09 pm: Heating up
This weekend was a lot of fun. mangaroo Came over to visit on Sunday, and she took me to the local game shop, where I picked up a copy of Lords of Waterdeep. Then we went back to my place and played a bunch of games for the rest of the evening. I really wish we had more opportunities to get together for activities like that.

Plans for my kitchen remodel are progressing. I have a preliminary design from the cabinet maker that looks great, and I should be signing the contract for the renovation on Friday. One thing I found out recently is that the reason the contractor took a long time to get back to me about the estimate was that he was contacted by HGTV to do a show about him, and he was busy dealing with that.

My garden is switching over from spring to summer. The beans have begun flowering, as have the tomatoes (at least, the ones that weren't damaged by pests). The blackberry plant is still small, but it has several clusters of fruit that are starting to color up. I've pretty much finished harvesting the cherries; I have just about exactly the right amount to make one pie. The apples are sizing up nicely. The fig tree in the front yard is sprouting bunches of baby fruits, which I'm looking forward to eating in the fall.

If you could accidentally shoot a member of your own guild on a raid, that would be me. Also, do characters still resurrect at the nearest graveyard, so you have to commute all the way back to the site of the raid?

Depends on if someone in your group wants to resurrect you or not. If they do, you resurrect on the spot, but people generally don't resurrect in the middle of a battle. (I believe there is some advantage to this, like you're only eligible for the loot at the end of the battle if you haven't been resurrected in the interim, but I'm fuzzy on that part.) I have done my share of corpse runs.

This is because only certain classes can battle rez. It used to be just Druid, but I think Death Knight can do it too now. (I think Druids also have to be in caster form, which means no bear or cat battle rez. If the Druid is your bear tank, you're out of luck.) Also, the cooldown is fairly long. The last time I used it, I think it was 10 minutes, but I'm pretty sure it used to be even longer.
