Oatmeal Muffin Day
Date When Celebrated : Always December 19
Oatmeal Muffin Day is today. Enjoy the cholesterol lowering benefit of oatmeal in your muffins today. That’s great news… eating something that tastes good, and is also healthy to you.
This special day is not steeped in tradition. To the contrary, we have found no information about this day. But, it is clear to us, that eating oatmeal muffins will fulfill the objective of this day. Of course, baking the muffins yourself, adds to the enjoyment and pleasure of this day.
Have a couple of oatmeal muffins, and have a Happy Oatmeal Muffin Day!!!
Boom refuses to drink Eggnog until his Blizzard stock starts going up again. He is on strike.

Segment 1: Moments of Zen
Tess – I love the new “invasions”. They’re really fun and give pretty good loot!! This is the type of content I enjoy.
Militus – One word… or acronym? PvP! Militus went full warmode this past week! 1. Camped tortolian WQ… made assassin 2. Disc vs. Disc 3. Militus trolled the shit out of some Horde! Bahaha.
Boom -. I did the 2 weeks of 14 hour days. Didn’t have much time to play anything at all. I asked for an Xbox for Christmas and I am pretty sure I am getting one. So that is cool. Leading up to Christmas I am going to do a short vacation and unplug for a few days. No phone, computer or games.
Segment 2: News/Topic
Story 1. This week’s events:
Weekly: Complete 4 Mythic dungeons and get a piece of Uldir Heroic loot, World Boss is The Matriarc (Jirak over in Zuldazar), watch for invasions on WoWhead (the give great caches and 7th legion service medals), and feast of Winter Veil (go save Metzen).
Story 2. HiveMind mount solved! See the link for a preview:
Story 3. NA realms, Alliance have control of Darkshore warfront and NEW WORLD BOSS.
Story 4. New cash-shop mount: Vulpine Familar
Story 5. Blizzard shit-cans the Azerite armor system in 8.2. This is HUGE!
Story 6. Blizzard shit-cans Heroes of the Storm. 🙁 (implications for Wow)
Militus – I am torn. Part of me want to give a middle finger to Blizz, the other part of me wants to open up my wallet so the same thing does not happen to WoW. 🙁

Segment 4: WoW Christmas list
If you could have one DESIGN-CHANGE-GIFT from the developers of WoW, what would it be:
Tess – Valor back. It would reinvigorate dungeons while letting people work towards getting the loot they want. Basically, I need a way to work towards something that, while slow, gives me a carrot.
Militus – Slower loot progression. I want to again love the items I work so hard to acquire.
Boom -. Yearly expansions so content drops quicker (Honestly I don’t see why they can’t do this already). More Dungeons, More Raids, Old Dungeons and Raids all bumped to max level content that you can que anytime. I want to random que for a dungeon and get any dungeon in the game.
End of show Credits
Militus – Shout out to Byjaxx for joining me in raid and listening to the podcasts! He was a fan of the ding-a-ling episode. Bahaha.
