If I play a tiefling warlock in 4.0, which is highly likely, I shall have to do all the rp in a pseudo-russian accent.

And frequently make comments about my agent.

The book only reinforces this desire.

also - it is far too late to worry about wording on wedding invite. it made sense at the time, i shall not freak now. it certainly is *not* a four-hour ceremony...

It's 2 am, and I'm taking a quick break from WoW. I'm wearing a Murloco's t-shirt, and attending a lockdown that runs from 11 pm to 7 am.

Yeah... Seems this is the point of no return. Happy? Oddly enough, quite.

Also, the 21st, for those that care/are interested, went swimmingly. [livejournal.com profile] domnall organized a surprise party, which was vastly fun. I love Ace's Pear Cider. Muchly... It was really nice to have a low-key party with friends.

As per usual - I blame [livejournal.com profile] domnall.

Well, the past few weeks have ranged between chaotic and calm.

The chaos is mainly school related. In the "oh, shit. the semester's about to end" kind of way... I've papers, tests, and a few other things to finish. Everything's going to be alright, and most of it's already finished. I just need to make sure I keep on top of it.

Registered for classes - need to constantly remind myself thirteen credits is not slacking. but i do dearly want to finish in four years. I'm taking two art history classes, latin, and a tier 2 nats. First two? Yay! Third? Okaay... Last? *get it over. get it over. get it over.*

Other than that, things haven't been bad. Work goes well, and I'm hired there until the end of June. Hopefully, I'll be able to pick up a few more hours when school ends, but if not, I'm on the job hunt.

Both gaming groups are moving nicely. Sadly, I'm kind of drained when it comes to them, and my brain's not always entirely there. Luckily, I've not been killed yet. Plus, my Shadowrun sheet is hopelessly out of date. I have lots of points to spend.

There's also WoW, which is far more addictive than a game has any right to be. The mantra of the week is "Only a few levels until I get my mount." So what do I do? Create a Tauren alt. *looks innocent* Same server and all, just... big. and a cow... *grin*

In other random news. The apartment is ever-so-slowly becoming clean. And I mean really clean, not just the normal "people coming! hide things! eee!" It's nice. With the changes in layout, [livejournal.com profile] domnall's acquired a Wii. There is rejoicing. It's fun, but being as I'm so absolutely horridly out of shape... *looks guilty*

Work. Dead.

Life. Pretty Good.

What follows is a little cross-section of things over the past few weeks. It's not in any particular order, but there's still some stuff of interest (maybe?) in there.

Granted, when one works in a University of Arizona department during Spring Break, one expects it to be rather dead. *grin* Actually, it's kind of a nice change, considering priority registration starts in a few scant weeks, and then there will be CHAOS!! I've nearly completely finished the project I was given, all that's left is to sort the forms so they can be shipped off where they need to go. Shouldn't take all that long tomorrow. I'm rather proud of myself for some reason. Plus next check will be nice, as I put in extra hours this week. Yay!

School-wise, things are going alright. The usual mess and cycle of classes. Not much else to say - except that I'm looking more forward to next semester when I can apply to Art History. Latin, the second time around, is surprisingly easier. Still need to work (more), but I feel like I'm getting it better - which rocks. Unfortunately, it means I'm fairly busy/tired most nights. This means I don't know how often I'll be able to hit mini painting at Sam and Marina's. Don't think much, if at all, in the near future, as I need to work on so many things. Couple of papers loom menacingly.

[livejournal.com profile] squeeky_v came out last week - which rocked. It's always fun to see/hang out with her. Didn't get to do as much as I wanted with her, but she did come over, spend time with [livejournal.com profile] domnall and I, as well as [livejournal.com profile] avilina and [livejournal.com profile] taranos. She said she had a very good time, which makes me pleased. She played lots of Viva Pinata (Yes, I own it. Don't mock me. *grin*) and played with the loom I bought at Estrella. We also saw Music and Lyrics. Which is a fun little chick flick and has scenes of Hugh Grant doing 80's dance move-thingys. We had a good time. i do need to expand my collection of movies with him - they're wonderfully good background or laze-about movies.

300 was also seen by [livejournal.com profile] domnall and I. Bloody, violent, drool-worthy (oh hush), PRETTY! Really. Really. Pretty. Sure, the character development's a bit rushed, and the costumes aren't accurate (much), but it's still a very nice bit of artwork. Granted, it's mostly digital and all, but oh gods is it lovely.

I've also been trying to make conscious effort to spin. I finished my first bag of roving, and now I need to set the resulting yarn in hot water. I'm proud of myself, even if it's shaky and the yarn is no-where near even. The second bag of roving (a nice dark brown/grey) is a little more smooth, but not by much. I keep needing to get my hands used to it all.

I'm happily playing World of Warcraft. My mage has been re-specced to Fire, and oh how I love it. In tabletop news - the druid's got another spear. I fear nothing. Hee! Also, on Friday night [livejournal.com profile] nicodeamos and his lady - Angie (who is quite cool, btw), came over to play Arkham Horror - which is a board game based on teh Call of Cthulhu RPG. Very fun.

Also, I've started (again) the cross-stitch of my device! It's looking pretty, and much easier since I bought new, smaller, needles! I just need to let everything else settle a little and then I want to hook up my torch and enjoy glass fun!

I'm down to a minor cough - this is good. Very good.

I'm also going to kill [livejournal.com profile] domnall.

See, we were both on Final Fantasy XI. This was fine and dandy - except accounts hadn't been touched in a month and a half or so. *shrug* He suggested maybe playing World of Warcraft for a bit. I being the sheep I am, agreed. (Ok, it's actually because I think MMoRPGs are more fun if you've someone to play with close-by.)

Yeah... I like it. Moreso than FFXI I think. I like the interface, and as a noob, it's a little easier to get into. I've got a gnome mage and a Forsaken warlock. I am a happy Willa. The gnome will most likely end up my main gal. I tell people it's because I don't have Burning Crusade to get a Draenai. Yet. If Elspeth gets upped in the near future, I'll probably start playing on her, currently, I'm on one of [livejournal.com profile] domnall's laptops.

Speaking of Elspeth, her power adapter went *blooie* yesterday. There was a part where the wires were frayed, and they finally gave up the ghost. Neither place carrying Apple things in town (the Apple Store and a place called Simtek) had them currently in stock. Simtek carries third-party ones, and was getting them in early next week. So I ordered a new one (found out what brand they carried and the guy said it was what he used) and it should be here late this week.

I was less than amused and rather pissed off. The solution? I'm borrowing Dom's old laptop. It's about 5 or 6 years old he says, but does the job quite fine.

I love the universe right now.

So, I suppose you lot are owned an entry...

For the sake of everyone on the flist, I'll try and keep to a minimum long, mopey post - though I could most certainly give you lots of angst (and cookies...).

Southern was fun - phone call and Thursday night aside. Not quite as restful as I'd have liked, but such is life. I've a few months to get everything worked out for Estrella. I did take some photos, but not a great many, and none that are particularly good... actually, there are one or two amusing Whiskey Bards ones.

School is school. I'd really like this semester to end, and end soon. Granted, work is going quite well, and I honesty quite enjoy it. Steve's and Dr Allen's classes (Racing Laws and Enforcement and Development and Management of the Racing Animal, respectively) frustrate me... I'm glad I'm heading over to Art History, at least I've a good idea of exactly where I'd like to end up - (in no particular order) - curate, restore, acquire, or work for an auction house. Granted, this would mean I'm probably going to continue school after I get my Bachelor's, but I think, in the end, it will be better... Next semester's going to be the one to bring up my GPA. *grin*

Keeping me sane now is cross-sitch (I swear, the 2nd set of boars will be done soon. Then I can start on my own projects), reading (slowly working my way through an interesting book about fakes/forgeries in the art world), and gaming (twice a week). The latter's fun - Friday's a plain and simple traditional D&D game where I've got the cleric; Thursday is a d20 Modern/Future - I love my assault rifle - did I mention I'm the Medic?

Brighter news - *meh,* not much. School's hanging over everything and it's about all I can concentrate on right now. I have a project for Latin due Monday and a paper due for Steve on the first of December. Neither of them, I should note, are things I'm looking forward to writing.


Did I mention I need sleep?

That would be the fighter we've got on Thursday...

So, gamed Thursday and Friday night. Quite amusing.

Thursday's a new group - [livejournal.com profile] domnall's playing GOD for it. We're large, in addition to me and him, there are six other players. All we lot know right now is that we've been sucked onto another plane for that. The group is interesting to say the least. Right now (as we were missing one player due to sickness), we've got the following. I had three little signs sitting in front of me, I need to upload pictures of them...

Cast of Crazies )

Things are amusing, to say the least.

Then, last night, there's the much smaller group. We got out of the Sanitorium, and are now just doing re-stock stuff in the nearest city. I like my character there - she's a druid. Her companion's a dire lion. (Oh joy for feats and a level of beastmaster...) He's the tank of the group, and equivalent to about a 9th level fighter. *hearts* There's also Brian's obsession with the manticore spikes he got. They do more damage than his warhammer.

Other than that, as usual, life's quiet. There's been a nice amount of rain lately, for which I'm grateful. I do like the lack of humidity here, but that doesn't mean I don't like rain. Because I certainly do. It's not quite the next best thing to the ocean, but it's still good.

Hell, I'm still getting over not being next to the ocean. I've lived by it my whole life. *sigh*

I also want Cape Cod potato chips. Particularly the Barbeque ones.

And more coffee syrup...
