I remember my first druid and being so excited to get cat form and then squealing with detail when I saw the tail swish movement was the same as the intro video.
I remember a level 60 priest on that server asking me where I'd been, and telling her that I'd been out studying cheetahs so I could learn travel form.
I remember killing level 60s in x-roads on my 49 twink... over and over and over.

I remember trying to sell the idea that random roll raid loot, tempered by communication, kindness and generosity of spirit, would make for a stronger guild in the long run.
I remember the awful price of pouring too much time into IOOM and not enough time into my marriage and my parenting. (What are you doing sitting here? Get up, shut down the computer and go hug your family, people!!!)
Good times and bad - so many changes! - but the game still holds such a sense of wonder for me, and I hope it does for you too. :)
