When your time in Warcraft is a measure of how much rep you can grid, how many pirates you can kill, how much closer you can get to reaching a goal, it can be very lonely. The smallest of gestures, a wave, or a "hey, you are you doing" can resonate and and make you feel like you're not alone.
This little silkworm was sent to me, for reasons other than my rep grind earlier this week. I won't reveal the sender, yet, as I haven't had a chance to ask her directly but she knows who she is. While I sent a mail back, it didn't feel like it was enough. So I wanted to just publicly say thank you thank you <3. He's been a great little buddy trudging through the sands and wiggling when I'm standing around checking mail or twitter.
