The first time I heard someone say, "Less Talkee, More Playee" to me was back when I was playing Everquest. I was in a cool mega-guild called Vanguards of Excellence. I was a pretty heavy contributor to the message boards and did a lot of writing there because, hey, that's kind of what I do. I'm a chatty Kathy, y'all. word.
Anyway, a new expansion hit the game and raised the level cap by ten levels or so, and I was the slow one of the bunch because, well, I did more chatting/posting on the message boards than I did playing because, hey, that's kind of what I do. Again, chatty Kathy. Listen for once would ya? I'm trying to tell you something here. sheesh.
Anyway, one guy in the guild called me out and said, "HEY STING!"
And I'm all, "what?"
And he's all, "Less Talkee, More Playee."
and I'm all, "What?"
And he's all, "Dude, you'd be level 70 right now if you weren't posting on the messageboards all the time. I learned that a long time ago. LOL!"
And I'm all, "LOL!" But really I was thinking, "Dude, 1) that's like asking me to not breathe or something, and 2) who are you? I haven't ever seen you post on the message boards before . . . dot dot dot . . . ."
He had a good point though, and I took a while to stop writing on the messageboards so much and just concentrated on leveling my toon. Level 70 happened, and it was all good again. The raid group embraced me once again and stopped giving me that blank look. Then again, we are talking Everquest here, and we all pretty much had that blank expression regardless.
So, sometimes you've got to just adopt the "Less Talkee, More Playee" attitude and, for the lack of a better phrase, Shut up. OH wait! There is a better phrase than Shut up. It's "less talkee, more playee!"
Anyway, this is one of those times. I'm leveling Myrna and playing the game more than talking about it. (If that's possible.)
Hopefully our accounts will now have the following seven Grandmasters ready to play through the Celestia content when it hits the shelves: Thomas, Bailey, Kyle, Amber, Molly, Myrna, and Iridian. That should be enough.
