Did you miss me?

So it's been a long time, my life has definitely been traveling a strange path the last few months and I let blogging fall to the wayside. One of the main reasons I haven't been posting much is because of strange and interesting relationship stuff and a lame attempt at school. For one I am no longer in a polyamorous relationship, and in the break up a lot of my hobby stuff and models got jumbled up. I went back to school but ended up failing a class because I am also working full time again, so once again school is set to the wayside. But perhaps the most important reason why I have been away is because I am once again in contact with my ex from about 21 months ago, and with her comes this little guy:
This is Jasper, my ex's son. He turned one on December 20th this year and he is the cutest damn thing I have ever laid eyes on. I've been gettin in as much time with the little one as I have been able to over the last month or so and enjoying every moment of it.

Now of course I haven't let my hobbies fall to the wayside, I've been trying to play Fantasy every chance I get and I even have some painted models! I figured I'd show a few pics of what I've been up to:I've spent some time at T&M cards meeting some other Gamer girls (this one's name is Jenn, imagine that) of course we are playing magic so as you can see I have that stellar attitude to go with my Frankenfurter hair.
I've put some work into the Warshrines for my chaos army, These are a fun if not pain in the ass project. This picture was taken during an all nighter the night before my most recent fantasy tournament. The TO, my good friend Bob Kelley, told me that he is enforcing Wysiwyg and that while models didn't have to be painted they at least had to be complete... so... an all nighter was in order.
Why yes those are Skaven on 40k bases. From the moment I saw the Clanrat box I knew that I wanted to use clanrats as lesser daemons of nurgle. I built these little fellows in the day leading up to my most recent 40k tournament, I ran a list including 40+ daemons, two princes, and a greater Daemon for maximum ratty goodness (the rat ogres were converted for my daemon princes and greater daemon)
At the 40k tournament I met a man with a beautiful 40k army, I just had to take some pics and share them with the world. Gotta love female guard.
I had a brief relationship with and introduced yet another Unicorn into the world. My now friend Rachel is the latest unicorn to grace the web and while she is still learning she is very excited about her nid army, Welcome Rachel! Once she gets started up I will be posting pics of her Nid army and record her progress as I can.
Of course I found my true love in the past couple of months too! His name is Jose, last name Cuervo. He keeps me company in my quest to become the hottest unicorn I can become. Right now I am working on becoming a member of the D20 girls project, basically a company that hires booth babes that are actually intelligent and knowledgeable about the product they are selling. I met the Idaho manager yesterday and I hope to have my interview soon(I live closer to the Idaho manager then the Washington one)
Last but not least I have been spending a lot of time with my fellow 40k players and good friends Michelle and Joe. There is just something great about having fellow hobbyists that you are close to and people that can help keep you focused and prepared for upcoming tournaments. These two are going to be the ones responsible for keeping me on track for Gamecon. I will get my golden ticket and I will see you in Vegas, that is my goal and I am going to need support to get there.

Anyway that is all I have for right now, I dont want to blow my load when it comes to ideas for things to write about. I just wanted to make a post and say that I have been once again been inspired to write and I am thankful that Brent has guided as many of you as he has my way. I love to hear from anyone interested in reading what I write and I pretty much do this for the Comments so anything I get is super appreciated, let me know what you like and what you dont and what you want to see! I will do my best to bring you things you actually want to read about.

Thanks for reading and look forward to more from me in the coming days I'm back baby and I have a lot I want to talk about!

  2. Hurrah! I'd been wondering where you disappeared to, but it seems you've been busy (you and Jose make a lovely couple, by the way), and you're back now and that's the main thing.#

    Nice Warshrines, too.
