The One That Started It All

Cymre asked this question:
Show us your very first screenshot from the game. Tell us about it, including the date, what you remember about the photo and who was in it with you. Do they still play?
I built a new computer mid-TBC so I'm missing my very early screenshots. This is the first one I have on my current PC:

It's not a raid screenshot, but I love this because it's a picture of me and one of my Kara raid buddies goofing around. We'd killed Durn and I decided to pose in his mouth so it looked like he'd eaten a bird, or something. This is from early 2008. Wardcleaves, the other toon in the screenshot, was our raid leader. I was in three raids at the time, and this was the laid-back, fun, "we need more coffee" Saturday morning ten man, Judge Wisely. We Wiselies did a lot of goofing around and a lot of, say, running each other through BRD repeatedly. We set off fireworks on the Kara bridge for someone's birthday, did circles around the poles during Midsummer Fire Festival, and talked about everything from the serious to the hilarious.

Sadly, JW is no more; Ward no longer plays WoW at all, nor do most of the Wiselies. Our magey mage picked it back up again for a few months last year but I only see him on Xbox now. I play on a different server. Lots of us are still Facebook friends, at least. Most of the best times I've had in WoW were with this group of folks. Miss you, Wiselies!
