This is re-posted from my Facebook, which if anyone here isn't a part of then let me know and I'll remedy that.

I've been trying that free Neverwinter MMO, so far it's pretty awesome. My half-orc sword and shield warrior (Who I gave a baby face and freckles, so I can say I'm adORCable.) has been tearing through "The Evil" like a champ. Acquiring shoulder pads and weapons that keep getting larger and larger, (That make me feel good about myself ego.) through his successful adventure. Then I can across my first dragon. Who soon made me realize; what a sad, flimsy, delicious, and pretty lump of flesh I am; and that my huge shoulder armor means absolutly nothing to him. :/

Actually despite being brutalized, I like the fact that they made a creature that's suppose to be 100 feet and 10 tons of muscle, teeth and hate; into an incredibly challenging fight. Maybe if I'm a goodie and finish all of my homework, I'll get another crack at the guy.

(Not an image from my run, but of the boss. AdORCable character picture to be included when I next log in to check on my crafting stuffs.)

Wow so I realized it's been forever since I posted anything here... Lately I've just felt the need to lurk in other peoples comment boxes. Anyway, life has been crazy in all kinds of ways. Between work, 20 (possibly 24) credit hours work of school and doing my best to be social I've been missing out on a lot of my nerd time. Like that new StarWars game. Got all my friends together to play it... And now I hardly have free time. Then again video games in general haven't been doing much for me lately, I'll turn it on about in about 10-20 minutes I feel like I need to be doing something more productive or at least with a tangible result.

That said I got a really awesome sewing machine for Christmas, a Janome 7318 Magnolia. (Yeah I know you're jelly. ^_-) and decided to start off small with a face mask costume piece for this game I play. The pictures to follow are pretty damning as to how deep my geek goes but, it's fun for me so folks can keep on drinkin' their Hater-aid.

Anyway the neat part of this is that I didn't have an actual pattern just a store bought mask for years ago that I had to look over and hand make a pattern that had the look I really wanted. Over all, I think it was a success but let me know what you think...

So I was born in the darkest of nights... Fitting. [Mar. 19th, 2011|10:27 pm]

You were born during a New moon

The moon is dark in this phase, because the half that's illuminated by the sun is facing away from Earth.

- what it says about you -

You want to leave an impression on people and make your mark on the world. When you love an idea, you'll work hard for it, sometimes even dropping whatever it is you're doing to go on to the next new great thing that's captured your imagination. The more freedom you have to chose what you're doing, the busier you'll be.

What phase was the moon at on your birthday? Find out at Spacefem.com

Snagged some movies while they were on sale, Beauty and the Beast, Mega Mind, Hercules and the last Shrek movie. I know I shouldn't be wasting my pay check like that but I likes my cartoons. Also the class reviewed a section of my work. (Chapter 3 with Relina's entrance.) One or two people didn't like how the character wasn't your "typical elf" but everyone else seemed to really enjoy it... And said I set their expectations of the character high. Here's hoping I don't disappoint! Also I get to upgrade my phone in a few days... The questions is DroidX or Iphone 4? I can't decide.

The test of time. [Oct. 18th, 2010|09:55 pm]

Oh wow Oswald the Lucky Rabbit is going to be in the new Micky Mouse game. It might seem weird but this makes me pretty happy. Back in the day Oswald was one of Disney's first creations, however the studio Walt was with pretty much took the character due to contractual agreements and gave Disney the boot. So I think it's nice that years later Walt gets something of a reunion with one of his first creations. It's one of those odd artist and character connection things that's hard to explain without seeming totally out there but, it leaves me feeling content knowing that they're reunited after all this time.

On a game note I dig the angle they're taking with it with Oswald being an older brother character to Mickey. Though I think it's funny that Mickey seems more mature of the pair.

If you could have any mythical creature as a pet, what sort of creature would you choose and what special powers would it have?

The Tarrasque... It's special power would be being the Tarrasque.

Yay finally have the internet back... In time to get to work. But before I depart I just wanted to share a little Luigi comic from my bro. ^_^

Got up to page 112 of my story tonight. Huzzah! Though I'm debating if I should post another snippet or to keep it under my hat so it can be enjoyed when the piece is completed. Thoughts?
