Thought I had things qued

HI EVERYONE, if you’re still following me that’s great. For some reason I thought I had some things qued for the rest of the month, guess not – LoL.

So what’s been going on here in the Bunny Burrow. Whelp – working a crap ton. I have a regular 9 – 5 job so I have to do that. To you know be able to eat, pay bills and have an apartment.

Speaking of apartment, it’s right now in an area of flux. I had a HUGH purge due to an infestation of bugs. It was sad having to get rid of so many things. So now I am left with the remains, the things I could save. Its been about a week now and still so much stuff is still in plastic bags. I have no idea what to do. It’s overwhelming to be honest. On the upside I have a lot of ideas on what to do with the space so that’s good. It’s just getting the bits I need to do it. I also have this walk in closet in the living room which is odd – but I’m thinking I can do something better with that space, maybe like an office.

Another thing that has been going on – I haven’t personally been streaming on twitch – but my Battle Buddy has and I’m in 2 of his streams.This is the  first stream i’m in. Check it out, give him a follow. If it goes well I’m thinking maybe going and doing it on my own as well; (be warned there is smack talk and a bit of cursing – lol).

I have been making NO progress with my writing, but I am at least giving it a try. Writing character descriptions – thinking about how to make the world I want to write in.

I have been keeping an eye on Cyberpunk 2077 – mainly because it really looks amazing. I have a habit of finding out EVERYTHING I can about a game before I play it. I have a very small budget so I am always super careful before I invest time into something new. I think the best thing is they are  saying you can explore everywhere. Granted I’m not sure how that’s going to work out – but I’m on the hype train. Here is a link to their website https://www.cyberpunk.net/en/

I also entered a contest to see if I could win a copy of Monster Hunter World, it’s another beautiful looking game that I know I’m going to get lost in.header.jpg

That’s all for me right now, lets keep going strong with the blogging thang…….

One of my odd cogs

OK so I will say right now I have NO drawing talent at all. Like no skills..it was one of those things I never spent time on. In honesty I read a lot and spent a lot of time alone so you know. I can sew pretty decently, I’m not professional or anything but I do decent.

ANYWAY – I have never played D&D. I do write some, and I have to say I have used some of the D&D monster information for my stories. So one of the creatures I actually kind of like is the Myconid…..they are based off mushrooms.

So I figured I would just share some images of the FUNGUY…..(i know that was a sad joke).

It’s a Bit Much

So today I woke up 5 minutes before the alarm clock went off, I wasn’t annoyed or anything it just happened. So I got up and started the day – I’ve been at work doing the work thing and watching streams on twitch because it’s slow.

In all honesty I’ve been feeling sort of spread thin, just to many things I guess. I totally purged the house of a lot of things, moving furniture around. I had to give the dog up for adoption. (just couldn’t afford to take care of her any more). I’ve been also trying to write more. Not just the blog thing – but these stories that are sort of stuck in my head.

I’m getting bogged down in the details again. On the one hand I realize a lot of it is based on worlds I’ve seen already or read about. It’s like a fan fiction loop. I also want to write reviews for the stories I’ve been reading and I realize i’m not really sure HOW to do that. Plus trying to get some game play in and editing screenshots which can take a really long time. then having this crazy idea to stream my own videos. My brain is really on overdrive.

I’ll figure out soon enough.

People can be Kind

I may not talk about my financial situation that much – as it is just what it is. The byproduct of living in a nice town with good schools. Which means if you are in a certain income bracket you’re not going to have extras.

In and of itself that’s fine. I have learned to budget to provide for my family. I don’t have a lot of extra perks. Although my ESO monthly membership is something that I keep (although there have been times it has lapsed). I love the game and the community. I’ve made a few friends that I know whose company I would enjoy in real life.

I watch  their streams and tweets – I am concerned when I don’t see them online after a while. It’s just a part of who I am and how I am.

Today was one of those days where I wanted to cry because of people’s kindness. Now if you don’t know me – I am who I am. As in how I type is how I speak – well maybe a bit less words, but the vibe is the same. I’m ok with people’s life choices as long as it isn’t hateful or hurtful. It takes a lot to get me flustered. If i do get upset about something I usually say something right away or just cut you off 100%.

So yesterday I logged on to play for a bit – meeting up with 2 guildies who I seem to often end up rolling with. We were in team speak just chatting away. Twitch has been giving away free crates so we were talking about it. I have gotten something like 8 crates in total – which is cool. Since the time when most streams happen I’m at work I can run them in the back ground but can’t really hear whats going on.

One of the guys won a free pet – which is AMAZING. Which started us talking about pets. I was saying I had like 5 pieces of the Dwemer Pet, but I was missing 2. I figured I was going to have to go grind for it. The other guildie met up with me and gave me the 2 pieces I needed, I was so happy. I offered gold – but he didn’t want it (I still paid him 1 gold on principle). In the process my other guildie sent me the ring tail pet since they already had it.

Neither of them HAD to do that, they did it because they were being nice and wanted to do a nice thing. I swear I really do LOVE the ESO community. I like helping people when I can, but when others do it for me I am always surprised….. I APPRECIATE YOU GUYS SO MUCH. Thank you for making an old woman’s day.

I have named the Dwemer Tootsie Roll and the Ring tail is Lice ^_^

American Gods

This was the original cover of the book I had.

This is the newest book cover.

 

HERE IS QUICK SUMMERY OF THE BOOK/SHOW: Ex-convict Shadow Moon roams a world he doesn’t understand, left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife. Little does he know his life is about to change after he meets a crafty, charismatic con man named Mr. Wednesday, who offers Shadow a job as his bodyguard. As their journey begins, Shadow encounters a hidden America where magic is real and fear grows over the ascending power of New Gods like Technology and Media. In a grand plan to combat the threat, Mr. Wednesday attempts to unite the Old Gods to defend their existence and rebuild the influence that they’ve lost, leaving Shadow struggling to accept this new world and his place in it.

I very much enjoyed this book, I read it so much that the cover was greasy to the touch, the pages were faded and discolored. I bought it second-hand on a whim from the used book store in my local library. It cost me 25 cents, best money I ever spent. If you haven’t read it – by all means GO NOW AND READ IT.

My first read through I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. After another read a few months later I was more prepared for it. In all the years I have owned it I have reread it at least 10 times a year. I really like it a lot. The story and the meanings and how I often have new thoughts every time. (I have to get a new copy soon as this was one of the books that was purged).

SO, in 2017 Starz made it into a show. I was pumped to see it. I was soooooo excited but not like super excited. Mainly because books don’t always translate well onto the screen – not pointing fingers but we ALL know that happens. I was happy with the actors they went with:

That chick from Sucker Punched (Emily Browning),

That SUPER sexy Old Guy from Dead Wood (Ian McShane),

Back to the future dad – that is like creepy sexy (Crispin Glover),

OH SHIT IS THAT OOOLOOO (Orlando Jones),

It’s freakin’ SATAN (Peter Stormare)

*Just a FYI – I’m not the greatest with remembering people’s names – it takes me a while to connect names to faces. If you’re an actor, its worst cause I’ll only vaguely remember what I saw you in. Then have to like google you later – maybe…most likely not cause I’m goin’ to forget why I needed to google you to begin with – LOL)*

 

One actor who I recognized was Pablo Schreiber – but it wasn’t so much the actor as the scenes he was in. They gave me feels – which I personally think means something. If I am watching a show and get a tingle (in my belly) then you’re doing a good job.

I legit call this one daddy issues – lol

It looks like he’s smelling ass – serious writing prompt right there.

That’s a lot of loss

Yeah yeah I know – it’s just sounds like fangirling – but I really do think he does a great job with this role. The character he plays in the show is so much more than in the book. he gets a thumbs up from me.

O he’s happy about that one 😛
