We've been friends for a while now. Look, here's a picture of me navispamming him 2 years ago. Gosh, I think we've known each other since July 2011. Well that's when I participated in his Healing Ring 2.0 questionnaire and I see my comments peppered through his blog from around that time.
RealID was so useful - he was the first person who wasn't in my guild that I realID'd so I could find him and chat to him. It's a great way to find someone who is a severe altoholic. These days, Btag and RealID make it so easy, you wonder how you did without it. These days, Saund has a few alts in my guild and he's one of our socials who just pops in every now and then between toons.
Saund makes such frequent trips to Sydney and they're always on a Wednesday - he's asked me a few times to catch up. Wednesdays are where I work really far form home and I used to have the kids with me so I couldn't see him in the city. And also, Wednesdays are raid day - OK, so I'm really slack and I want to make sure I am home to raid. What? Come on! I love raiding! Wednesday is the best day of the raid week!
However, this time when he came up he had a fantastic idea - he was going to come to ME! I felt bad putting him out, and he was going to go all the way out into the sticks where I work, and I thought about it and what was better, was if he would come and meet me close to home! So he jumped on the train and we met up at my closest train station and he and I went for some frozen yoghurt - I am such a big sucker for the stuff!
He said he would wear his Alliance T-shirt. So of course, I turned up in my Horde one. At least it made it easy to find each other. As long as he wasn't flagged for PvP, of course.
So we chatted away for about 3/4 of an hour, about WoW, alts, raids, work, kids, family, exercise... all the usual things we talk about. I laughed because he REALLY does look like his human toons!
