Oh yes I have started to paint little men (?),(?)

So quickly I just wanted to through up some shots of how far I have fallen into the realm of nerdom. I have started to play table top games. and I love it !! I am playing a game called Warhammer 40K. My great friend Jake has decided to pull me into this world of minis. For those who do not know Jake he is the husband of Bree's best friend Megan. So Megan's dad has been playin table top games with his buddies for nigh on 30 years or ther abouts. I have a great deal of distance to go to get to the level of painting that Lynn (Megan's dad) is at, but I will get there on day. Maybe 30 years from now. But I have finished some of my figures and am proud enough of them to show them here.

Wow time flys when you don't have any

Jeez time flies right on by when you don't have time to think. So many crazy things have happened since I last wrote on here. I guess the biggest thing is that I got a Promotion to lead. No big news here for most of you. This was a couple of months ago. I moved to a day shift at work, which is nice because I am home with Caity and Bree at night. I am not a morning person so that has been a bit of a challenge for me. I will survive I think. The crazy thing is that the Supervisor that I was working with jut got a promotion himself so I am now doing most of his job as well as mine. Life has been crazy. One cool thing that I was able to do is go to Chicago for eBay Live. A giant convention full of people who love eBay so much that they flock to a convention center for 3 days to learn all thing eBay. I worked here helping sellers better there listings and business strategies. It was a lot of fun! I think the greatest thing that I got to do while I was there is eat. Yes I know what you are thinking. The greatest thing is eat??!? Chicago has the best food that I have ever eaten. Yes I did have a slice of pizza why I was there but I am talking about little dinners, Chinese food that was so good I am salivating right now think about it. The only food that even comes close to this is Bree's cooking. The beef noodle bowl that she made tonight was every bit as good as what I had there.
