What a day...

Met some cool folks for lunch. Embarrassed the hell out of myself by power-talking for 2 hours (see...this is what happens when we don't get normal human interaction on a regular basis: I talk at 90mph until people get weirded out by me. Go Team Preston!). It's not likely that these folks will ever call back. I imagine they are weirded out by us/ me.

So on the way home, picked up a set of White Lions of Chrace that was on clearance and headed home.

OH...and I hit my first deer on the way home. Car coming on the other side, so I got technically sideswiped by a deer. Saw him coming, but couldn't jerk the wheel or anything...focused on keeping the car even and going forward...and not putting us in the ditch or causing a head-on collision. The Volvo has a dented up door now. Great!

I'm gonna go paint some Inquisitorial Henchmen now.

Been busy as hell lately...

So work is interesting. Interesting in a good way, not in a fortune cookie "May you live in interesting times" kind of way.

I took a massive pay cut, leaving the last place and coming here. The last place I told them I wasn't extending my contract and they cut me on the spot. It was an un-ethical place, with folks interested in only doing as little as possible. Really crappy place to work and I wasn't going to be a party to it. was so unbelievably political.

Now THIS place...night and day different.
Work. Getting the job done right as fast as humanly possible. The folks I work with are pretty squared away. Small crew. Smart technical mother-fuckers. For the first time in years I'm busting my ass to keep up and get it all crammed in my head-meats. I'm putting forth more effort than I have in a long time. They are most certainly getting their money's worth out of me. Actually, it's kind of a gyp, but thus far it's all good.

NO time for websurfing, forums, chat. No time for any goofing off at all.

When I get home, I'm smoked. Haven't been playing any 40k or WFB. Haven't played anything in weeks.

I'm getting some Space Marine Veterans (MKI and MKII) as well as Masters of the Chapter assembled. Leman Russ Tanks are being assembled and painted by assembly line. IG Steel Legion as well as an Inquisitorial Retinue etc. Big Apocalypse game on the 17th at 6pm till the wee hours of the morning.

Went to a buddy's house for some D&D action. I actually didn't play, which sucked. Observing isn't as cool as playing by any stretch. It's a very gamist, tactical type game, light in the RP. Haven't actually been invited to play, and I might not. We'll see. I liked the folks, they seemed all pretty cool.

Today we're meeting with some folks we met via MySpace. Not exactly my favorite method of meeting folks, but these folks seem pretty solid. Maybe get a game started. We'll see. Right now I'm looking forward to some deep-fried pickles and hefeweisen.
