Suburban Nerds

I was asked a little while back if I wanted to participate in a weekly blog interview with some friends of mine. They have a wonderful little blog called Suburban Nerds. I was sent an email with some questions and asked to answer the questions. Just a little FYI, I am just as horrible at answering an email interview as I am an in person interview lol. The questionnaire asked me about my passions and to explain it like I was talking to someone who had never heard of it before. I instantly went blank and just winged it as best as I could lol.

So with out further ado, here is the link to my interview with Suburban Nerds. Go give them a look. Read the other interviews, I can guarantee they are better than mine and they give some great insight into some nerdy pastimes.

Inquisition ended

So, I finally stopped pissing around in DAI long enough to finish the main story line. I think that Mr. Fluffy may have tried to record me. I was talking a major butt load of crap to the characters.

*Warning!* Some minor spoilers ahead!


Ok so without giving away too much (because you know, it all depends on the narrative you took), I had a few choice words with Miss Morrigan-I-can-match-the-dragon's-power. I was doing my thing, she was doing hers killing a dragon, then BAM! Bitch gets taken down mid fight.



We went into this with a plan woman!

So yeah, I had to fight the dragon and the big baddie boss. I was not a happy person. Mr. Fluffy kept giggling at me while I kept yelling about how these other supposed bad-ass characters couldn't hold up their end of the plan and I was having to pick up their slack.

So finally beat the dragon down and got back to the big baddie fight. Beat him down and paraded my happy little butt around Skyhold and had a very nice final scene *wink wink*

Hell yeah, bow down peasants 


All in all, I liked it alot. Now I am going to continue the craziness and do it again, but this time whole new race, class and going to choose templars over the mages. We will see how well I do a second time :D

I woke up in Silent Hill...........

I live in the South. Fog here is not a common sight, which is too bad because I LOVE it. Just as much as I love rain. I am just not at all into cold weather. My friend calls me the reptile do to my need to have it constantly warm.

For the past few weeks it has just been a little freezing rain and snow with a lot of ice. I want to make this clear for anyone not in the South. It is NOT the snow that shuts us down, but the ice underneath it. I believe we had a total of 200 wrecks in just a matter of a few days in the town I live in because of icy roads. Combine that with the fact that there is a plethora of idiotic drivers in this town and shit gets real, but I am digressing.

So after all this snow and ice I have been waking up to, we finally got fog this morning.

There are buildings and trees on the other side of that fence
It was Glorious

Ah! Another living soul!
I was enjoying every lovely, creepy minute of it.


I feel like something should be jumping out at me
I was wondering where this guy was though

I didn't expect the Inquisition

Ah, Dragon Age: Inquisition. You who have completely taken over my weekends and spare time. I do adore you :) .

Mr. Fluffy bought me Inquisition for valentines day. Yep, he hasn't spent alot of time with me since. I did however point out to him his Skyrim addiction and now he has an idea how that was for me lol. He is cool with it however. He even has taken an incriminating picture of one of my 12 hour gaming days. It isn't pretty.....




Anyways, it is great. I haven't been quite this in love with a game in awhile, at least not since Black Ops. I liked the option of choosing how the story goes, right down to who your character romances. I had never actually played any of the Dragon Age games before this and now I am wishing I had. There is so much that goes over my head because it happened in the other games. Anywhoo, I am quite enjoying it and that is what I have been up to alot lately :)

Dear nutjob

Dear religious nutjobs,
Neither me nor my young daughter need you approaching us in public places and forcing your propaganda onto us. Please let us shop in peace. When my daughter is older if she wants to explore religion I will support her anyway I can. As of right now, I am raising her and her brothers without religion. I want them to be able to find themselves and their place in the world with out people like you telling them they are sinful or bad. I never want them to feel conflicted between who they are and who their religion tells them they should be. I have even set aside my own religion (hint: it isn't yours) so that I don't influence them either. They know mommy isn't christian and that is enough for them. When or if they ever feel the need to have religion round out their lives, we will sit down with them and explore them. We will let them find what fits them and their inner beliefs. We will not force one upon them. So yes, when you approach us in the store while we are shopping and forcefully hand off your pamphlets to us, all you are doing is making a bad impression on my daughter. She wanted to know if you were one of those people who needs the "special kind of jacket"

Excuses, Excuses.......

So yeah,  have not updated this in FOREVER.....

I am still around so let me give you a break down of what has been keeping me :)

1) Little Man got into some legal trouble. It has been a long hard battle but we finally won and things
are slowly going back to normal. I won't go into details, all I will say is, my son is innocent of all allegations that were brought against him. I am sure some of you know that in this justice system of ours, you are never innocent until proven guilty. You are always guilty until proven innocent, and proving that innocence is a long, hard battle that will tear your world apart.

2) I had my surgery! If you have read any of my other posts you know that I was trying to treat a very heinous female issue. I finally sat down with my Gyno and hammered everything out so I could have an ablation done. An ablation is basically where they burn the lining of my uterus so that I scar and bleed less.  This solved the major issues I was having, though it will not do much for the hormonal issues I have. It has actually been a year since I had it done and I am completely happy with it. Will that change down the road? Maybe, but for now I am pain free and happy.

3) Mr. Fluffy got an XBox one. I have nicknamed it "The Creeper". I still haven't gotten used to that fact that I walk into the room and it instantly greets me.

4) I finally got Diablo 3 and beat it on the 360 console. Then I got Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls for the xbox one and beat it too. I am currently farming the living hell out of it on adventure mode.

5) I stepped back from the politics of Amtgard and I am having a blast again. I feel more creative than I have felt in awhile.

6) I was titled :D Yep, I am now a Lady in Amtgard.

Sorry for the long absence

So yeah I haven't done this in a while now lol. The only excuse I can give is that I have been extra super busy with my local Amtgard chapter for the past 9 months. I took over a position that no one else wanted and have been slaving away since. My last term is up in July so hopefully at that time I will be able to be more active on here.

Other than working my rear off for Amtgard, I have been catching up on my gaming. I forced Mr. Fluffy to finish Borderlands with me so I could play the second one I got for Christmas.  He finished that one and got about 3/4 of the way through the second one before abandoning me. He thinks it's a boring game. Really? This is coming from the man who will play Skyrim and Fallout for days without pause doing the most mundane thing in the game and yet, Borderlands 2 is too boring. Whatever.

The munchkins are getting bigger. Currently gearing up Little Man for middle school. He decided to take band as his elective ( Insert giggly happy mother face, YES BAND NERD!) We have also been dealing with the onset of that most heinous of monsters, puberty. He pretty much sounds like a squeaky toy 24-7 much to his distress and my great amusement. This has unfortunately (or fortunately) led to that most awkward of talks......S-E-X. Oh dear, I wasn't ready for it. Mr. Fluffy on the other hand was all kinds of Mr. Informative to him. I am dealing with it, but my heart cried about losing my son's innocence.

Well that about sums up my time away. Until the next post (whenever that may be)
