A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather & ask for it back when it starts to rain. 

most mornings i wake up grumpy.   sometimes i just let him sleep.

my life consists of brief snatched moments of living my life hidden deep among chaos, confusion& the  going crazy, every night i go to sleep filled with hope & enthusiasm for the new day coming.  then i wake up & think "here I go again" & just aim to survive.

what i am doing would be easier if Luke hadnt got hold of the work camera and reset all the macro/light/iso settings in the manual mode so i had to take the pics in 'auto mode' until i figure out what he has done.  problem is that i took the pics at night so no natural light and even with a lighting setup the pics colours look 'not normal' so am having to manually change levels in Photoshop. didnt help that i normally use a mid-grey background which shows the contrast between greenstuff/metal well and this batch of figures is grey ( to match the background) which has obviously confused the camera!...lol!

It is easier to listen to Elvis and sing along (no-one else home!)

Supposed to be editing a piece that is increasingly overdue

instead I am wasting time on the internet... which seems like it should be the most popular answer for that second question.

Supposed to be re-writing the old description of the galactic core from the Squat background to fit in with all of the discoveries made since then... there's a lot.

But instead I'm on here drooling over new Grymn models.

Supposed to be unearthing the hobby/guitar room from under six months of backfill. What I'm actually doing is loafing around on the internet answering Sally's questions and wondering where I'm going to find a home for the twenty or so Hasslefree adventurers, 30 or so Malifaux  minis and 100 or so Everblight, Menite and Trollblood minis that need a figure case before I can put them away... Trip to Maelstrom tomorrow for some Kaiser Rushforths methinks!
