...might be getting to name your own Wifi. Hostname: Lego Assassin Password: AwesomeIsPermitted (It's also nice to have one's Lego collection out for all to see. :b Still have to put up some shelving so I can move in my modular buildings.)
I didn't expect to be at BrickFair this year, but it happened. It ended up being really convenient for work, so they paid for my flight here (I'm still in DC meeting a client for a couple of days). The convention itself was alright. The public attendance was pretty sad, and the only event I got to partake in was an adult swim event, which meant more of what we were already doing all the other nights... :b As always, there were many interesting MOCs to see and I brought mine, which ultimately e
I wasn't going to go, but now I'm considering it. The only way that's possible is if I can coordinate with someone on hotel and/or car, so if you're going and you are willing to collaborate on either or both of those, please let me know.
...And I'm so excited, but SO unprepared. There's a last-minute MOC that I REALLY want to do, but I have no time to do it... A commission to finish, work and overtime, an extremely sociable almost-three-year-old... My car is in the shop and I am reeeeeeally hoping it gets back to me before I go. I want to say what I want to build, but I looked it up this afternoon and found that this particular popular video game character has NEVER been done in Lego. I don't want someone to beat me to it. XD
AHHH I didn't think my son would be ready for Legos for another year or two, but last night he sat down and joined in organizing System parts with me. (He's just barely 2 1/2) See, it looks like I'm helping him with colors, shapes, and counting - but in reality I am training a sorting minion MUAHAHAHA-- Actually it works out well because he's nearly as obsessed with organization as I am. (See all that sorted Lego/Bionicle behind us? XD) YUSSSS LEGO PROGENY Look, he also made his first
I GOT A PERMANENT POSITION I've been working at PNNL (Pacific NW National Laboratory) for two years now as an intern and a post-Bac, which are both temp positions... and now I've been hired permanently. Basically I'll be doing the same thing (web design/development), just with more security. ALSO - wooooo cheap benefits and a significant raise! SUCH HAPPY I decided I'm going to celebrate by dyeing my hair. BUT, I'm going to be dressed as Mad Unikitty at BrickFair VA, which is in just over t
So, Emerald City Comicon was AWESOME. I would've posted about it sooner, but I have been stupid busy with personal stuff lately. Also I was hoping to have some detail shots of what I'm about to show you, but meh. Can't wait forever. SO! I decided to go as a steampunk assassin (a la Assassin's Creed). Given the time crunch, I didn't have time to do everything I was hoping to, but I'm at least happy with what I had. You'll notice some Bionicle MOCs implemented, which is why I find this relevant
I found this interesting, given I'm actually currently playing my first D&D game as a half-elf true-neutral rogue. Note it picked me as human, but I tied between human and half-elf. Chaotic neutral I can get... sort of. XD I probably just got cleric because I'm religious and there were a lot of questions about that. You Are A: Chaotic Neutral Human Cleric (4th Level) Ability Scores: Strength- 11 Dexterity- 14 Constitution- 12 Intelligence- 17 Wisdom- 15 Charisma- 16 Align
If someone advertises that they are selling "Bionicles", it's probably a really, really good deal. I just got like.... $80 worth of sets, masks and parts from a kid off Craigslist for $25. Yesssssssss Also I just went to a local convention (RadCon) and made a tail. Wore it with my steampunk stuff BECAUSE REASONS. It was fun. There were a surprising number of fursuiters (I live in a pretty medium-size town, not a whole lot of strangeness), some of which were dancing at the rave, which is insa
So I went to see the premiere last night... It was kind of nice having the theater pretty empty, because 1) it's a Thursday and 2) ZOMG BLIZZARD. I had to wear my BZPower shirt just because (photo pending), and with that and my Lego phone case, I felt pretty awesome. EEEEVERYTHING IS AWESOOOOO-- oh, sorry. I think that's kind of ingrained in my head now. EVERYTHING IS COOL WHEN YOU'RE PART OF A TEAM YEAHH So. What did I think of it? In short, it was absolutely everything I was hoping for and
I made a thing. On a post-it note. Because everyone at work except me is gone. D; I decided erasers are for the week, so I just rolled with however it came out. meh. But honestly, however you spend this week, I hope it's lovely and full of good memories and stuff and things. Insert other sentiments here. Yep, I'm sleep deprived. Have a lovely week, all!
So... unbeknownst to me, apparently there are actually interesting things that happen on my side of the state. I was asked to be part of a fashion show to help a friend show some stuff I'd bought from her... it turned out to be a steampunk/Victorian variety show. It was really, really awesome. And surprisingly I didn't have to drive 4 hours to go to it. So yeah. I did a thing. I'm kinda sad because there's a neckpiece to the jacket top that's missing, so I couldn't wear it all. Works OK wit
I got all active again on the website, posted some blogs, made lots of comments and replies... and fate goes NOPE and 'splodes it all in the site hack. *sigh* Well... perhaps I should try this again. What is there to tell? Hm. Well, the most relevant news is probably that I'm making it a point to go to the next BrickFair Virginia. Sooooo if anyone wants to hang out or share hotel/car/etc, let me know. I'll be saving up enough to potentially pay for it all myself, but hoping to get at least s
Hey everyone! In order to help with holiday costs and some unexpected expenses that have come upon me and my loved ones, I'm offering commissions! This will give some general info on it: (click for full view, of course!) This just gives a few ideas of what I can make. If you want to look through most of the art I've done, you can browse my gallery here. Even if you can't afford one (though you could make it a present for Christmas!), please show this to anyone you think might be interes
