Oh where to begin... [Dec. 4th, 2006|03:32 am]
How about last week? Been putting this off, been in a funk. So to cheer everybody else up, this is how my life continues to stay interesting.

Wednesday: Pulled crazy homeless lady off poor kid at gas station. She just wigged. Spit in his face, jumped on his back, took four men to pull her off. On the side of the freeway, so cops show up immediately. She was some white trash speedfreak from the looks of her, cops hauled her away, kid was shaken but ok. Feel sorry for the large black man that had put her in a full nelson till the cops got her. He actually had to hold on to her.

Thanksgiving was the typical Filipino/Jordanian Thanksgiving. Lots of really, really odd food combinations. Ever try deep fried curry turkey? It's an acquired taste, but really quite good. Cousin's newborn daughter took a shine to me. As in wouldn't let go. She gets pried away by doting relatives and she nearly takes my shirt off her grip is so good. And she keeps reaching back for me. Finally I had to go and the mother pries Emily off me. And she goes instant angry baby face. Usually I terrify small children. Ok, I usually terrify grown children too. Not this one. Must have liked the view.

Friday was the wonderful work day when they told us they are cutting hours and cancelling all bonuses for the season. Merry Fucking Christmas.

Saturday was Memoir 44 tourney. I couldn't stop rolling well. Or drawing well, or just doing everything right. I stomped the last guy in the tourney 12-2. Russian front scenarios, each round new scenario. And I just couldn't miss. I still don't have a clue what I did right.

Ebay auction for magic cards went for $175. Was expecting $500. A full set of the latest expansion went for $75. $250 power nine went for $100. Can't catch a break.

Surgery in March, keep you guys posted. Still no game out, latest guy to offer me money announced 'Just Kidding'. Just like the last five. This game is never going to hit.

News regarding Con...

I've been looking for models lately. I've been handing out contact info and talking to people. Told them what for, didn't go into much detail though. Am hoping to hear back from someone in the next week or so. If not, I'll be sure to fill you in. Not sure where else to post this, don't have your contact info. Deborah still hasn't sent you the artwork I worked up yet has she? I'm working on s kinda cute Anime girl picture now, which could pass for the "Animated Japanese Porn" card, it isn't coming along as well as I'd like it to, but some things take time. Tentacles are hard to make with digital shadows and highlights... it's a sample anyway... Consider it an audition for one of your artist positions... You already gave me editor, so now I'm just waiting for the text rendered rules to arrive so I can revise and manage the layouts. To talk business, for the rules, do you want a booklet or a brochure format that can be folded up and slipped into a box of cards? If the latter, what size?

It's all I can say, I have been at the lowest point of my life and I am still here. If you give up you will definately LOSE.

If the game is worthit too you then somone will agree to your vision about it. YOU just need to project that to the next bunch of potential buyers. If your enthused so will they be.

ok you have my five cents, I will sneak back to the darkness now.
