I think today I'll spend the afternoon by the pool.




I've been finishing the paint on a Piranah that Mike gave me. He got it over at GW in the mall the other day. Inspired, I also converted an old Eldar tank I had lying around, filling it with Tau and loading it with hammerhead armaments. Unfortunately, I was out of railguns, so I had to give it an ion cannon, but I can use it as a "troop killer." Mike says I should paint it white with blue/teal striping, keeping to my current tank scheme. I'm inclined to agree. The 'Ranah, that'll be black'n'teal, as per the rest of my army.

I've been working with my "T'eldar" army. This tank, known roughly as a Calderin Viper (prototype). The specs below are not yet set in stone, but the basic gist of it.

Specs:
Tank, skimmer, fast: 40pts
Armour [12, 10, 10]: 40pts
BS = 3: 10pts
--base point value: 90pts*--
Ion Cannon: 15Pts
Gun Drones x 2: 10pts/drone
Targetting array: 5pts
--total field cost: 130Pts--



Built using the Vehicle Design Rules (VDR) It's a fast vehicle that lacks the Hammerhead's armour (due to the fact that it's an Eldar! tank) and lacks the base save (due to the fact that it does not have a built in targeting array.) I liked the idea of gun'drones, because they give a more Tau-ish look than gluing on a few missiles. I'm going to drill gun-drone mounts into the side of the wings, but I'm trying to figure the best way to do it.

On April 23 I whelped 6 puppies. Three males, three females. The "K" litter. They are: "Kora," "Kyla," "Kira," "Kaiser," "King," and "Kaliber."

On Mothers' Day I found an abandoned kitten in a shed in the dogs' yard at the house. I got him cleaned up and put him on Panja to nurse. So now, the newest member of the pack:



"Kat vom Nordosten Haus"




At least "Kat" starts with a "K." Gotta stay with the theme. More pics of Kat and the rest of the K-litter on the Vom Nordosten myspace.

I got tagged today. "Tagged" being dog-lingo for "bitten." Panja. Although she wasn't trying to tag me I was at the wrong end of the deal. I was bringing in a can of dog-chow to give her; a nursing mama needs as much food as she'll eat, and Panja has never been exactly fat to start. I had a can of chicken bits that I figured I'd give her for dinner.

She was going after Cezar when he got too close to her puppies. The only problem was I was leading Cezar away from the puppies so I could feed her when her nerve went, and she launched herself at him. She miscalculated, ricochetted off his shoulder and went straight up into my face.

And?

Yep, you guessed it, I caught an "attack dog" with my face *laughs* Not exactly the best posistion to do it from. I didn't yell or make any sound, just grunted and stood up and muttered some "Sailor-ish" words under my breath about stupid dogs. "Stupid" probably being the mildest of words used, but it wasn't worth getting truly worked up about.

Well, Panja immediately hit the ground and went back to her puppies looking abashed. Cezar slunk back into the room and pretended to be a rug. I rubbed my face and noticed a tiny bit of blood smeared across my hand, and tasted it in my mouth. Figuring a split lip, I went into the bathroom to see the damage. She'd "fanged" me, and left a few nicks along my right cheek under my eye. "Fanged" is dog-lingo for "completely pierced with incisiors." So, yep, I got my lip pierced with holes on both sides.

Thankfully: 1) I have a high threshold for pain; 2) I don't bleed much; and 3) my blood clots almost immediately upon contact with air.

By the time I'd found a band-aid, the bleeding had already stopped, but I didn't want it to leak on the pillow while I slept. Messy. washed my face, tidied up, then went back to get Cezar out of the way so I could open the can, dump the food in the bowl, and let Panja eat in peace. I can't be mad at the dogs. Cezar was just being a lug, Panja wasn't going after me, and it's just one of the truths I accept about working with animals: sooner or later you're going to get hurt. It's just a risk of the job...

...And on I'll gladly accept.



I might had a little scar out of this though. That's okay, right? Chicks dig scars! *shrugs good-naturedly*

You-all-know-who (yes, Him! - whee!) got me a Jack Russell puppy to kep me company. But there are days when I'm away from home for 24 hours. So he gave me a second puppy to keep the first one from getting too lonely. I love this man. He has a heart rivaled in size only by his... *wink wink, nudge nudge* *chuckle* ...Well, let's just say he has a -VERY- big heart!

It occures to me that I'm serving my country under a false name. One that does not match my social security number, or even technically exist anymore. I just think that's funny.

An alternate name in a government agency? Who Am I!?!

I always wondered why my left shoulder and the left side of my neck were stiff.

It wasn't until my left hand went numb, followed by the arm, then tremendous muscle spasms in my shoulder that I finally found out.

Now I will need surgery on my neck.




Oh Joy.

They say I have no emotions but anger.

They also say my daily plan goes like this:
-get up
-brush teeth
-be a smart-ass
-plan to take over the world
-eat dinner
-brush teeth
-think evil thoughts
-go to bed



You're Totally Sarcastic

You sarcastic? Never! You're as sweet as a baby bunny.
Seriously, though, you have a sharp tongue - and you aren't afraid to use it.
And if people are too wimpy to deal with your attitutde, then too bad. So sad.
