On Sunday before raid time, after I spent a mind-numbing half hour fishing flagged in Wintergrasp to provide my guild with feasts for our Arthas attempts and a good 2 hours before that herbing for flasks, I joined my guildie Mujeae in circling Dalaran with our minipets. We had fun "roleplaying" about how the little elekk needed to take a poo and I asked, "Did you remember to bring a plastic bag?"
She responded, "Oops :( "
...and then at the same time, we both said "Well we'll just let her go in the alliance district, then!"
(This all was happening in /say... but of course, the alliance around us don't speak Orcish, so it just resulted in laughs from the scattering of horde players that happened to be nearby!)
Now, walking circles in Dalaran only keeps you entertained for so long, even with humorous conversation, so I pulled out a zeppelin kit from the toy store.
One single zeppelin can result in over an hour of fun.
We took turns throwing the zepp back and forth as we ran around Dalaran, keeping just out of range of the zeppelin graphics catching us. A small fleet of them chased us through the city. We eventually went out to Krasus' Landing and just ran circle-laps around the landing pad, going in opposite directions, tossing the zeppelin back and forth as we crossed paths, forming a relative bee-swarm of zeppelins between us.
...and we were giggling like children.
It was not the first time a pair of Vortex girls had an hour+ of fun with a zeppelin kit. Many months ago, two of our other raiders had discovered the giggle-fest that is the zeppelin toy, only they actually took a video of it!
(edit: and I can't spell zeppelin.)
