May en passant.

May is going by faster than ever.

I'm still anxiously awaiting word on the position at Big Rooster. This week they are getting the last of the applicants. I'm really putting all my eggs in this one basket. This may not be wise, but it's THE job I want. I don't know how to fully express this.

I'm working on a couple gaming tables for the FLGS. The local players treat the terrain like shit. "It's not mine...so why should I care?" So I'm cleaning out all the terrain, salvaging what I can and trashing the rest. Granted, I can likely salvage all of it in one way or another. My "Saturday Minis Painting Gathering" will be taken up with working on terrain bitz while everyone else works on figs. Beckie can handle the rest of the folks while I deal with this.

It's a crying shame how people treat other people's property. Property that they graciously let people use for free.
