Wish I'd learned to do this earlier

As many of you know, I have a new addiction - World of Warcraft. It's a really fun game and I'm having a great time. Draginol has created a guild, Myth, Inc., and a number of JoeUsers, among others, are members. We already have had some groups get together within the guild to do some questing and we've also shared items we've created or looted within the guild. To me, it's much more fun to make something and give it to a friend instead of sell or auction it off. Of course, if I need the money, I sell, but if it can help someone, I'll give it away. I've also gotten a few things I needed this way, too.
Well, enough about the guild. On to the pictures. I learned today how to take screenshots during the game. I was planning to post a picture of my character anyway, but while I was out running around trying to fulfill a quest, I came across an orc sitting atop a rock. I decided to have a little fun. So, here we go -
The guy playing this orc was away from keyboard, so he didn't react at first to my actions. So, I decided to dance.
Finally, the player came back and saw me. We waved and then we danced. It's built into the game that you can't communicate with characters from other factions, but you can still do emotes. Also, Uther is a normal server, which means that PvP usually has to be a mutual decision, so if neither player is interested in fighting, you can do stuff like this.
After waving again, I ran off. And ran right into two more Horde characters. So, I waved again, and started dancing. They joined in.
I just wish I had known how to do this last week. I happened to be in the area when a group (probably close to 30 or so) of Horde characters decided to raid into Alliance territory. They went into PvP mode and attacked a couple cities. I got involved with the fighting, trying to protect the elvish town they were invading. I got owned pretty badly every time I got involved. They were organized and all but five or so characters had several levels on me, so I never really had much of a chance. Would have made for some great pictures, though.
