      I never remember to write in this thing, since I'm mainly over on LJ and IJ (since GJ went belly up LOL). But at any rate, I'm back again in the land of RvB. smiley8.gif

    • Ugh...

      So I've been pretty neglectful of updating this thing for quite a while. Here's what's new (but hardly exciting)

      1. Bowling is going well... I'm up to a 115 average, and have improved my average by like 17.?? points. I'm 3rd most improved female in the league!

      2. Took the loser ex-boyfriend back home to Jersey. He had stopped taking his insulin again, was acting all psycho and depressive, and still had no job. So now he's his Mom's problem again, and not time.

      It effectively leaves me single, but oh well. Better no man than one I have to babysit.

      3. My last remaining grandparent passed away the same day I returned home from taking John back. Got home at 4am from Jersey, and was told at 4pm. He'd been diagnosed with terminal cancer this past summer, so we knew it was coming. Better that he passed now in relatively good health, than have to suffer any longer.

      4. I graduate with my Master's in May!

      5. The job... meh. Kids are gettin on my nerves, but there's only 2 more weeks of school left until Christmas vacation.

      6. LIfe: *shrugs* It goes... gotta finish my Christmas shopping yet (I am so far behind this year!), get house cleaned, put up damn tree, etc.

    • Bowling with Caboose

      Tannim

      Team X-Treme (affectionately known as RvB), had our bowling night again yesterday. The boys decided to rip on me for wearing my Caboose shirt again, and kept asking if -1 was going to be my score.

      How did we do? We won the first game, lost the other 2.

      I had a great night! My average is now up to 103. Bowled a 138, 117, and a 128. W00T!

      Linda (Doc) bowled complete crap. Average is like 120-something. Bowled 89, 79, 105 UGH!

      John (Simmons) and William (Sarge) each bowled one game over average, but sucked the other 2.

      So I'm finally getting better with my bizarre curve, but now the rest of the team is sucking. Bah.

      Sony cracks me up! They sent me a letter today inviting my alternate character to be a beta-tester for JTL...

      HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA!

      So i've told the boyfriend if he wants to play JTL, he can use the activation account and play.

      Played AD&D over at Tony's house tonight. Had a blast.

      Stopped at 7-11 on the way, and got myself a Slurpee in a coolie plastic Halo 2 cup LOL I should go back tommorrow to get some more, and replace the disgusting neon plastic Coke cups that are currently stacked behind the bar.

    • Final Score: Jen = 5, Gamestop Geek = 0

      Work kind sucked today. A kid my Team Teacher and I were finally making some real breakthroughs with got picked up by Protective Services today. Poor little guy. Yes his mom is neglectful, but the last thing he needs is to be dumped into a County Youth Home.

      Had to go pick up a present for my nephew's christianing. Got him this giant Tigger stuffie, that has baby toys hanging off it. So he can lay on it, look up, and play with the dangley things. Pretty cute toy.

      Decided to stop at Gamestop, since it's in the same complex. I got my Xbox fianlly! MWAHAHAHA! Grabbed a bunch of games, and pre-ordered Halo 2 Limited Edition. Took everything up to the counter and told the Counter-jockey to get me an Xbox... NEW.

      Guy comes back with it, looked at the games, then looks at the boyfriend and I. He flips through the games, and asks if they were for me. I tell him yup. He laughed, looks at the boyfriend and asks if I'm joking.

      The boyfriend tells him, "No, they're hers. She kicks my ass on a regular basis in every game except DBZ Budokai 2."

      Guy still thinks we're joking, asks what systems I have. I list them, and tell him I also play SWG. He stares. Told him I'm a Playstation Underground member as well.

      Still staring, he brags that he started the village phases yesterday for SWG. Told him I've done 2 phases already, and just waiting to the shift for 3. So then he brags about how he's got JTL on pre-order. I smile, and tell him that's nice. He asks "What, you don't care about JTL?"

      I tell him naw, I just don't need to pre-order it. Because I'm already playing it in Beta.

      By this time his co-worker is laughing his ass off, and pokes him. Says "Dude, of course she's a gamer! She's wearing a Red vs Blue shirt!" (I had on Caboose today lol) Counter-jockey asks what RvB is, and co-worked smacks him and points to the Season 1 and 2 DVD's on sale, right behind him.

      The one who'd been busy trying to one-up me rings up my order, hands me the bag, and promptly disappears into the back room. His co-worker is still snickering and laughing.

      Boyfriend and I leave, with bag of goodies in hand.

      Man, there's days that I LOVE being a girl gamer LOL

      So my team was whining that they wanted shirts to wear for bowling. Since I'd already gotten 2 of them hopelessly addicted to RvB, I suggested we wear those shirts. Our 4th member and our alternate went to the website, and watched a couple of episodes. And now both she and her hubby are hooked LOL

      So bowling tonight was:
      Sarge (William)
      Simmons (John)
      Doc (Linda)
      Church (Greg)
      Caboose (me)

      And lucky me! Since I've got most of the shirts, I can wear a different one each week. Last week was Donut, and the week before was Tex. LOL

      We spent most of the evening slinging quotes around at each other, and scaring the old people. Especially when we did the Pacifist/Pedophile joke.

    • YAY!

      Had a completely craptastic day at work! Man, teaching really sucks sometimes.

      Come home, log into my e-mail and was instantly cheered up. I'm now a Beta-tester for Star Wars Galaxies: Jump to Lightspeed. HAHAHAHA!

      Now I can kick ass in space, as well as on the planets. I can't wait for the first jackass to start PMing me with "You're a chick? I r0x0r! Wanna cyber?" so I can blast the crap outta his ship. LOL

      I was putting together a few Genestealers last night, and I thought that they could improve on them by making ball and socket joints in the arms/wrists. Make modifying them easy. Being that you love the bugs, I thought I'd see what you thought.

      Are you a God/Godess or God-like entity?
      Do you consider yourself sane?
      Do you ever hear voices in your head?
      Do you cut your own hair?
      Do you ever change subjects in the middle of a sentence?

      Couple questions from a sanity test that say'd i was 87% insane!

      Is that bad?

    • Tannim

      14 years ago

      Yeah, I'm loving my Xbox (I picked one up last week... babbled in my Journal about it LOL).

      Can't wait for Halo2 to get here already!

    • ritualdragon

      What's up neighbor, just passing through. Xbox is worth the money, halo 2.

    • Tannim

      14 years ago

      Yup, I know. You've said it 3 times now LOL No one I know plays it, and I've never been much of a football fan. So I haven't got much interest in that one.

    • VagaJammer

      My GW game of choice is Blood Bowl

    • Tannim

      14 years ago

      I have a 1st Edition Space Hulk set, back when it included the Genestealer half-breeds, and the beaky Rouge Trader Space marines.

      I don't think I've bought a single thing at full price for my army LOL it's just too damned expensive. So I wait for sales, clearance, ebay, etc. One of my fav figures is my Ork/Genestealer hybrid figure. His stats (and those for having Genestealer Cult as part of an Orky warband) were in one of the hardcover Ork books from waaaaaaaay back.

    • VagaJammer

      14 years ago

      I prefer Blood Bowl and Space Hulk. Little to no additional investment after purchasing the set.

      Seriously, I'd go broke if I tried fielding a decent army. Not to mention the accuracy Nazis in official tournaments "Your sheet says your Space Orks carry assauslt rifles, but your minis don't have assault rifles. You're disqualified."

      Yes, by army of choice is Space Orks. WAAAAAAAAAGH!

    • Tannim

      14 years ago

      Yeah I think they're entirely too anal about things at "official tournies". So I don't waste my time with them.

      Orks, hmm? My mom has an Ork Army for 40K and Epic LOL Her fantasy army is Wood Elves.

    • VagaJammer

      14 years ago

      I'm a Blood Bow guy myself

      I would probably play 40K if it wasn't so expensive to field an army (and don't get me started on "official" tourneys where they won't let you field an army unless you have EXACTLY what your sheet says "Hey, it says here your Orks have assault rifles. I don't see assault rifles on your Orks. You're out!")

      Yes, when I do play, I play Orks. WAAAAAAAAAGH!

      Let's hear it for Tyranids!!! I guess that makes you a Dominatrix....

    • Tannim

      14 years ago

      I've never had a problem with the Reaper mini's. They are softer than the GW metal figs, but that just made it easier for me to do conversions. I've never had one break though.

    • tripleyew

      14 years ago

      Have you had any problems with the quality of the Reaper miniatures? As I recall from our store, the casting for the figs wasn't well quality-controlled, so details weren't really sharp, and breaks were not uncommon. The difference in cost would add up, though, so it seemed like it would partially balance out, in volume purchasing/modeling.

    • Tannim

      14 years ago

      Heh. I got most of my Bretonnians during sales at the gaming store, or at the GW store. Plus bargain bins were a big help. GW made the mistake one time of having a bag sale. Everything you could fit into a bag ended up being 40% off. Man, those years of playing Tetris really came in handy LOL

      I also use Reaper Minatures for my basic troops. The figs are much cheaper, and almost the same size. Since I don't play in Tournaments, it makes no difference that all my figs aren't official Games Workshop ones.

    • evilmonkey

      14 years ago

      that is so cool. I love the kilt idea. I have wanted to start Bretonnians ever since the new models came out, but i haven't had the money. oh well, i'll get some sooner or later. (most likely later)

    • Tannim

      14 years ago

      40K - Main army is Tyranids, but I also field a Tyranid Brood Brother Cult. I have a very tiny Ultramarines army that I use to teach kids how to play.

      Epic - Again, Tyranids LOL I love the bugs

      Fantasy - Bretonnians, but I've modified all my foot troops to look like Celts (yes, they have kilts lol)

      I guess I love the Tyranids best because I can do lots of conversion pieces. Very few models were made for the Cult, so I can use my imagination and go wild. I've got pieces from Mordenheim, 40K, Fantasy, and Necromunda in my Cult Army.

    • evilmonkey

      Wow i must say you are the frist girl i've "met" that plays warhammer 40k. What army do u play? I play dark angels myself and i'm starting necrons

      Nope, haven't played Halo on X-box *cries* I have it for my PC.

      When I finally manage to save up some cash, that X-box is mine!! LOL

      Prolly won't play WOW. Stupid Master's classes keep me way to busy as it is, and I barely have time to play SWG. But I will MAKE time now that I'm in the beta for JTL lol
