Today is my husband’s birthday. He’s notoriously difficult to buy for, and every year I look for new and interesting ways to render him speechless. This year, I think I’ve excelled myself. Rather than spoil the surprise, let’s let the screenies speak for themselves, shall we?

Last night, I opened a GM ticket:

Then I sat back, crossed my fingers and hoped. If there’s one thing that can be said about Warcraft GM’s it’s that they have a sense of humour, and a real understanding of the community for whom they work. Frankly, I know they rock. I was not to be disappointed. When The Wonder Pally opened his mail before work this morning… well, I was impressed.

They sent him cake!!!!! Not only was this impressive (bite marks aside) but he also got a song \o/

To anyone who says that Blizzard don’t understand their target audience, or who think they’re not willing to throw convention to the wind and have a bit of fun when asked, I say I think that the game I play and the people who help it work so well are 1000 kinds of awesome. I’m proud to be a part of it and I’d like to thank the GM who took the time to make this day a little bit special for my husband and put a massive smile on my face to boot.

Happy Birthday Wonder Pally :D
