The Sensual World


Every time I see someone else other than me use the word 'faff' there is, I will admit, a moment of unmitigated joy. Take Kamalia et Alia's post above that I woke up to this morning, which pretty much crystallises the concept of faffing into a Warcraft context. I should also mention Tome of the Ancient's post on that front, where it's clear she's grasped the concept of mucking about with a purpose to brilliant effect. It often takes someone else to distil the idea you have into something workable, and even though I can be found occasionally faffing at the beginning of an expansion, it is pretty much a journey's end kinda deal. There are so many other people who have embraced this lifestyle choice as well: I've mentioned it in passing during the Podcast but really not given these people a shout out and a thank you properly for displaying my FaffBanner9000 on their sites, and that's something I should really correct as a matter of some urgency.

Therefore here is the Master List, thus far, of people who have Embraced the Faff and stuck a banner on their site:

These are the ones I obviously know about, however if there are others and I've missed you, PLEASE let me know and I'll add you to the list. These people, and indeed anyone else who feels the desire to proclaim their allegiance to the Faffage will receive in the next few weeks the 'Official' #TEAMFAFF Seal of Approval, just as soon as I can get around to making it. I feel it's the least I can do to thank you guys for spreading the F-Word about the Blogsphere on behalf of everyone who celebrates the desire to faff about without worrying that there's a reward at the end of it.

If you wish to join the small but highly desirable band of individuals displaying said Banner of Awesome: here, have one to take away:

If you watch this space starting next month there will be some contests in which Faffing Shirts will be prizes. HO YUS. Until then, don't take things too seriously, relax, grab a hot cup of your favourite beverage and take a moment to work out what you need to do to prepare yourself for the Expansion. After all, that's the essence of faffing: there's no real timescale, there's no worries, and most importantly the game's not in charge. YOU ARE.

Go faff this weekend. You'll love it :D Have a Theme Tune to accompany you!

I just wanted to say thank you for the previous post. I'd forgotten to add Skyshard hunting to my faffing list. I am now one more Skyshard closer! Three more to go!

Thanks for the link and, even more, for the inspiration! I added a faff banner to my post, and put it on my "Best Of" page, too. :)
