costume ramble

OK first off I have to vent for a moment.  Just skip to the next paragraph if you don’t want to read it.  I’m going to beat the boy I’m dating.  Period.  I can understand him being mad at me last week because their was a rumor going around that I was cheating on him with a mutual friend.  While it’s true we went out after work one night, it was simply to vent and get something to eat.  Nothing intended, just pure going out as friends.  I can understand how it would make him mad because he has it in his head that theirs something going on between us already, and the fact that I neglected to tell him (with the idea that it would avoid the very fight we had) only made it look worse.  But that’s not the problem today; I can handle someone being mad at me.  Today he’s trying to lay a guilt trip on me to come and see him.  For anyone who follows my Twitter then you already know that I’m working almost two weeks straight.  I have to make it until Saturday and I’m finally off, so obviously when I get home, I want to relax.  I don’t want to change close, redo my makeup and drive an hour just so I can spend two or three hours with him before I have to head back home.  Of course he’s off for the next how many because he’s going out of town and is complaining that he won’t get to see me for another week blah blah blah.  Don’t get me wrong I want to see him, but I’m tired, and it’s not worth the gas or the miles on my Jeep to drive there for that much time.  If I had gotten off work early like I did yesterday then I probably would have but today we got a truck so I stayed till close trying to work out as much freight as I could.  Sorry.  I told him not to count on anything, I knew we were supposed to be getting freight today but as we always have about 4 or 5 b/l’s out at a time we don’t know if what we’re receiving till we tear open the boxes and start marking items off.  I couldn’t make any promises but I suppose he understood ‘maybe’ and ‘I’ll call you when I’m off’ as ‘yes of course darling I’ll leave my new job early just because your heading out of town and I should have to take the cut in pay and drive the extra miles.’  Pardon me for having a job. 
--Ok on to other things.  I have decided on my Halloween costume.  Drumroll please.  I’m going to be…. Another variation on my steampunk costume.  Anyone familiar with my original fic Peregrinor then you know Euan.  And anyone who knows me very well knows I did a version of Euan’s outfit for the last anime con I went to.  For anyone not in the know I’ll try to dredge up some pics.  Seems to me, Hold that thought UPS at the door…WOOT got my stuff from Lush, was wondering where it was.  Ok where was I, oh yes pics for that outfit are few and far between, it was the first night of the con, we got lost going there, and the person I was with wasn’t to familiar with my camera.  Not to mention you have to have surgical precision to use it, I don’t have any problems with shaking but apparently other people do.  Atm I can’t find any but I know we took a couple, because I was freezing my ass off and he was all ‘wait, wait hold that pose, hang on still shaky, no hang on again’ and I was all ‘I can’t stand still I’m to fucking cold!! Can we do this inside?  I feel exposed but I’m wearing pants ...’ Yes that last part went though my head a lot that night.  Skin tight dressage pants.  I looked great in them but I felt naked.  I’ll up a few pics of what I have done of the costume in a bit.  Need to charge the camera -_-“
Ok while I’m on the costume kick, anyone up for Anime STL 2010?  I want to go and I don’t.  I don’t want to take the bf because he obviously didn’t want to be there and he had no idea what was going on, and what I found funny he didn’t get.  Obviously lil bro and I will try to go together, last year he had work issues (then when I mentioned the bf that was a deal breaker) but I’d like to do a group cosplay as I’ve never really done one.  Last year for Halloween a couple of us all did Batman, I did Poison Ivy (gallery one, gallery two) one of the other girls was Batgirl, and we had a Joker and Robin.  That was fun but we didn’t do anything.  Sure we had people over and drank but its different going to a Con and having a group to roam the halls with and hang out with.  That and this year I want to have a room at the hotel, none of this staying with a friend up there and driving back and forth.  I want to be able to go to the dance at night, walk to my room, get a decent amount of sleep before the first panel I want to go to in the morning.  And have time to get into full costume.  Which trust me, takes awhile.  If anyone has any ideas or is interested let me know, we still have plenty of time to get something going. 

Happy happy

Just saw this on Twitter, pardon me while I drool over a new Warcraft instance, Icecrown Citadel: The Frozen Halls.  So what's the abbreviation on that?  IC TFH? Just IC? The way the article talked each wing will be a different instance, a la Dire Maul (which is DM ppl!  Deadmines is VC!) so I suppose that will mean it will be like DMN or DMS (Dire Maul North or South). 
Ok have to get back to checking in merchandise, just had to share.  I'll post more later, have some stuff to chatter about.

I'm a fan of the original but holy shit that was awesome.

Update on Yesterdays Post

Pics of Euri and her Worgen were added ^_^  Oh the memories.  ... pardon me while I go cry in the corner for a minute ... ok I'll put on a brave face and continue.  Ran CoS last night.  We had is scheduled for the rogue of our guild as she had never run it and I kinda wanted to help her get a flyer (she would be so psyched if she did it would amuse me to listen to... we'll get it for you Sylvane!  I promise!  The Baren's horse too!)  But it had a few hiccups... mainly Sylvane wasn't able to log due to some compy issues so as it was the H Daily Del and I did it.  But who I ran it with isn't the concern, its my dps that's the concern.  We did have another hunter in the group (silly dwarves, LoS issues is all they're for!) and as no one threw up recount I'm not sure how I did but I'm damn sure I wasn't last.  I know dropping that explosive trap every 10 ft had to help... ok it wasn't quite that bad but it amuses me to do that and watch them all die.  ... Volley takes to long to kill them... anyway.  What amused me about this run was not the stupid tank who tried to race though it, ok off topic a sec.  Anyone else having problems with tanks doing that?  Pali tanks specifically.  I've had a couple in non-timed runs, just fly though it where I had to keep Viper on half the time and the healer had to throw a fit just to get mana.  Slow down ppl its not a race!  Unless its timed... so I suppose he was ok last night, but he was pushing a little to hard... I mean he got himself killed cause he aggroed such a mob Del couldn't outheal the damage he was taking.  Which says something cause Del is a fucking awesome healer.  Ok back on topic, what amused me about last nights run was the fact... I didn't die. The whole group did... twice in fact.. but not me.  Oh no, I'm the hunter you want in your group.  See I'm one who understands when to use their feign death, and how to use their Gnomish Army Knife.  Oh yea, out of combat, rez healer, ppl love me.  ^_^ I'd do it more but the damn thing has such a CD on it.  And that in itself amused me.  Ok Mr. Tank go keep aggro, oh what even with my misdirection you couldn't?, oh you suck... oh shit, no no no mob go away go away, leave Delfinae alone!, screw this, Feign Death.  Yea that was the train of thought. 
But here's something I don't get.  The other hunter was all about his dps, and obviously I am too, but protect your healer! I had a palidan back in the BC days, she had a funny spec.  Ret/Holy.  But she wasn't a bad off healer and a decent off tank.  She needed the gear to heal better, but she could heal.  And I'll be damned if I didn't die more when I was healing then when I was off-tanking!  Which makes no sense because logically the healer shouldn't be taking damage.  And no before you say anything it wasn't because I coudln't keep my tank healed, it was because the tank couldn't get aggro before the dps started wailing on shit.  Or they wouldn't all target the same thing.  It always annoys me when tanks mark stuff in Heroics but it usually seems to go better if they do.  Its not the hard to figure out, no heals=die.  So protect heals=live.  Ok, done with the Warcraft speech for the moment. 
I can't say I know much, going to go home and see if I can figure out why the Linksys routers aren't cooperating with the WildBlue satellite.  I really need to straighten my room but I don't want to.  It bothers me its a mess but I don't want to do anything about it, lazyness yes!  That's what being a ninja is all about! 
Anyone else psyched about the Assassin's Creed psp coming out?  Yes of course you are.  You all have preorders just like me.  Anyone know if it's like the God of War edition and have Altair's face on the back?  Part of me wants that the other part doens't care as I've already bought a skin for it ...

Yes I know its a nearly naked girl.  No it doesn't bother me.  Acutally I think the art is wicked.  But oh, what's that you want the second ps3 game?  Well yes I want that too... Need a ps3 first.  ... I belive I know what I want for Christmas. 
Ok speaking of Christmas I already had decided what I'm getting for myself.  Asus G51Vx-A1 Pretty isn't it?  Its the precious.  ^_^ Now I really don't like the pricetag on it but I refuse to get a laptop larger then a 15.6 and I refuse to not have the newest Nvidia.  Yes I know, I should get a 17" and not have to pay as much, but I'm sorry.  I hike, I camp.  I want to play WoW on the go, and although I can climb a 50ft rock face like Spidy I'm not strong for the long haul.  And my mothers laptop is a 17".  Yes its cool cause its large but its so freaking heavy!  Not to mention it takes up so much room!  I want something light and compact but still has all the goodies.  Anyone who finds something better let me know as I don't completly have my heart set on an Asus, but I haven't found anything better and I've tried building at Dell and HP.

Ok first I have to say that for anyone following any of my stories on, please note that they are all on a temp hiatus. I believe Redeemer will be the first to be updated then Titans. If I had a beta things would be moving along faster, not to say lil bro that you aren't wonderful, I would just like more than my eyes to see a draft before it gets posted. So as I've posted frequently anyone remotely interested please drop me a line, I promise I don't bite unless you pay me.... and only Lex Luther or Seto Kaiba is rolling in that sorta cash... probably literally rolling too... o.O

Ok for anyone who knows me you all know I'm an avid warcrafter, and anyone who doesn't, well you can read my tweets (90% are about in game something or something related to Blizzards virtual crack). And yes I have to rant about my addiction for a moment. I don't mind Blizz forgetting to add the range into my Kill Shot and fixing it with a patch, hell I'm not over the Worgen debacle

but I'm getting there. But I am just getting this funny vibe that I'm getting another nerf. And I don't like it. I'm finally equal with the other classes; I mean you don't want your hunters to powerful (Hunter tanks for the win!! Let’s do it again Nellith!!) but at the same time, I ran HoL last night. I'm not Uldar geared but I have at least the best stuff normal Heroics will get me, I came out bottom of recount. And I wouldn’t have been upset if Nellith or Arisperel or one of my guildies was there who runs ToC or something of that sort. But no, I know it was the Shammy's first run though HoL (he did get the achievement for Northrend Dungeonmaster but still...) I'm talking I epic failed. I know I have some lag because of my connection but that was retarded... I know one of my guildies says that recount isn't accurate because I can throw out damage faster then it can keep track, but still! ... Have a CoS run scheduled for tonight we'll see how that goes...

 Boondock Saints 2. I can't decide if I'm going to flip out or pass out. I knew about the sequel for a week or so now but just caught the trailer. Hopefully it’s not quite as pathetic as the trailer is making it look, I mean the first was freaking awesome... Like I have hoodies and tee shirts with their stuff on it awesome. Course part of the reason I loved it wasn't because it was a couple of Catholic Irish boys (hmm save the gender sound familiar?) going vigilante it was the fact that a lot of people didn't know about it, I'm afraid Hollywood is going to try to cash in on a good thing it should just leave alone.

Edit: pic of Euriela (Eitrigg-Alliance) and her Worgen added.

Been a long time since I posted here, I used for awhile, and they did something that irked me so I opted to quit and return to a blog that I had always liked but not used as much as I should. Of course don’t expect monumental updates here, my Twitter feed will obviously change frequently, but my fan fiction and original fiction are where I tend to spend most of my time updating. When I’m not WarCrafting of course.

Speaking of WarCrack I’m not sure what to think of the new announcement of the Cataclysm expansion. I like the idea of changing the world, and flying mounts in Azaroth, but I don’t like them saying that they are going to change the starting areas. I want my low lvls to run though Darkshore the way they always have. It would be cool if my 80 went back there and the world was different for her, just leave it the same till you 60 or something. Something like how they did Icecrown and the Death Knight starting area. If you hadn’t done the quest to change something then it was one way to one player and a different to another. And how dare they even joke about changing the Barrens, the noobs won’t understand the Barrens Chat joke now. Poor things.

Normally this is when I would shamelessly promote one of my stories by giving you a teaser, but truth is, if I did that now then it wouldn’t make any real sense, so I’ll just shamelessly promote my own fiction. You can find my work at either Fictionpress or FanFiction and searching for the author Tzimisce. Please R&R if you can, I love opinions… and am still in desperate need of a beta. Anyone that is interested can contact me via either account I just listed or though my blog.
