It makes me homesick though D:

Have you sucked off a fireman today? )

Still not dead...

not at this point today anyway.

ZOMG, Hello peeps!

Not much going on, I was given an Occupational Therapist that I saw twice and have inexplicably not seen for the last five weeks. It's nice to know I've been left to rot with no explanation why. Good ole NHS.

Well, maybe if she'd been here for the last five weeks I wouldn't have missed my doctor's appointment this morning and 'wasted' the NHS' time. I could have maybe got round there and the NHS would have spent the past five weeks wasting my time.

Any way, I'm refusing to fucking moan any more than that. The Sailfins' are noisy bastards and for an arboreal species, they climb crap XD It's like trying to watch a green scaly Jack russell with oversized back paws trying to climb.

I finally got around to ordering issue 8 of All Hail Megatron this morning, so I'm gradually catching up.

Best thing this week? Apple filled doughnuts.

After weeks of the supermarkets never having them, I finally got some and life was good.

Why am I listening to Spice Girls on Youtube?

Will catch up later...

just want to say:

Obama's inauguration (sp? Sorry, ignorant English type here) speech was fucking amazing.

If he does half of what he says/hinted at, the world will be a better place and I'd maybe even consider stepping on American soil one day, which is something I've never considered doing because of my deep seated hatred for the country.

I finally get IJ to post a fecking video, then it changes the video in the entry before. I'd checked it. Twice. And when I left it, it was the right one (it was a Star Wars one that should be there again now).

How does that even happen?

*confused and mildly miffed*

OFFS. It's changed them both for the Star Wars one. I give up IJ, you win. Now stop being an arse and let me edit an entry without changing the one before (or after depending)

I have no Star Wars icons D:

I found it mildly amusing.

Best film I've seen all week when I get the right one as IJ's being a bitch )

IDEK Let's talk livefood.

I completely forgot until I got an email earlier that I ordered 100 small dubia roaches. They were pretty cheap for the number of them and my colony's not quite at big enough numbers to sustain the population, though they're not doing too bad.

I can't find any more lobster roaches either so I'm going to have to put some of my adults into another box and just let them do their thing for the next 4 months, then I can rotate the colonies and give on time to recoup its numbers while I use the other one.

It's been working pretty well so far as I've not had to buy livefood for about two months now. But due to recent additions of more anoles and a chinese water dragon I think it's finally increased the demand on the roaches to more than they can keep up with. I've still got a lot of both species as nothing I've got is big enough to eat the adults, which helps, but the strain on the young population is finally starting to show.

I set up another two dubia roach colonies, but it's going to be a minimum of three months before I can touch one of them and a minimum of six months before I can touch the other. Ideally I need to add more adults to those two but the roach shop isn't delivering at the moment because of the cold weather. The guy I'm getting this 100 off of hasn't got any adults for sale either so expanding my roach colonies is going slower than I want at the moment.

I feel bad for feeding them to the lizards sometimes. They're pretty cute when you spend enough time with them, and the two hissing cockroaches (more pets rather than feeders as I only have the two) I'm really fond of.

I want to get some tropical woodlice too and I need to restock my firebrat colony as they got too cold for a while and didn't do too well because of it so I've only got a few left.

I've had escapee waxworms, so I've got lampshades covered in waxmoths. The only problem with this, is I've got low energy bulbs so the lamps don't get very hot and they're made of paper so it's almost perfect for egg laying on. Needless to say, if they are using it I'll have to remove them and throw my lampshades away and get some new ones.

The stick insects are breeding all over the place, well, they're dropping eggs like they're going out of fashion, and now they're full grown my garden's running out of bramble/raspberry and rose just trying to keep up with the amount they eat.

The giant african land snails are growing well, the albino sticks out like a sore thumb with the others and I think I really need to consider starting to grow cucumber and lettuce.

I love the roaches, they eat anything. So easy to feed.

Three updates? What's goin' on 'ere then?

Pikchur tiem!

My hand hurts after all that line work.

Oh, and if anyone's interested, because I'm an utterly lazy bastard that hates having to log into different accounts, artsy sturf can be found here:[info]thespacebridge

I will get around to answering comments later when I'm feeling less fuzzy.

Hi peeps, hope you're all well.

As you probably noticed, I don't post too much these days, and this goes for pretty much everywhere apart from dA to be honest and that's not often.

Anyway, I've been watching stuff over on LJ the last few days for the lulz, so go check out the latest news post as the comments are fragging gold.

And just in case you disagree that panic and entitlement isn't funny...

Seriously, these things are so inaccurate...

Your rainbow is shaded violet.


What is says about you: You are a creative person. You appreciate beauty and craftsmanship. You are patient and will keep trying to understand something until you've mastered it.

I just wrote 'LOL FAILURE' in the extra info section on my tax return.

No really.

Oct. 27th, 2008

Oh what to do...

I'm indecisive. I don't know whether I want to try and draw my comic, or attempt to come up with a story for NaNoWriMo, or attempt to finish some of the other things I've already started (like that long doomed FFVII fic).

Oh woe.

The occupational therapist has diagnosed my youngest son with Ass Bergers.

Jul. 30th, 2008

Might well be of interest to DMC & Resident Evil fans.

In other news, the Ware IHS show was quite awesome and the kids conned me into buying another two corns. So now have a small anery female het for ninety different colour morphs (slight exaggeration - like I care really) and a normal male (but very pretty) that's possibly het for blood. All of which mean I could end out with god knows what if they ever all breed on account that the amel is het for snow just to add to the mix. The original little one is doing well still and they now have names. The amel is Ifrit, the anery is Shiva and the norm is called Nobody. Nobody is a character from a Mick Inkpen book, though I'm not sure that's what my youngest was really thinking when he named it.

Anyway, beyond the 'they have names' part, if you didn't understand a word of what I just said, don't worry about it. Unless you're half clued up on corn snake genetics and colour morphs I'm barely speaking English (het is short for heterozygous in this context).

Snakes and stuff.

Got Son #1's new baby Thursday night. He was hatched on 05/05/08 and he's so small, but he's an active little thing.

So anyway, I've got an amel male corn to look after for the next six weeks until he gets taken back home with Son #1.

the IHS show in Ware is tomorrow. I'm so glad I've not got much money or I hate to imagine what I'd be coming home with. But I've brought a pothos and an orchid to go in my anole set up so I can start setting that viv up properly soon and hopefully get some anoles for it next friday.

A potential small island of happy in a sea of wtf.

I should be getting son #1 his first corn snake this weekend. The International Herpetological Society are having a breeders meeting on Sunday, so if my membership comes through quick enough, I should be going to that. It's been a few years since I've been to one, so I figured it was about time I got back into it all. I don't think it's good news when you drop a twenty year hobby for any reason other than 'I don't feel like it now'.

I know why I gave it up, my mental state ever since son #2 was born, I couldn't deal with the extra responsibility. Whereas now I don't have the kids here apart from weekends, and son #2 is older now, I don't have that excuse any more. So, in my wobbly train ofthought, I decided it was time to reclaim my life back an inch at a time. Starting with re-getting into the hobby that domineered over most of my life.

The internet has been a good crutch for me over the last five years, but it's not a substitute for a real life. I need to get that part of my life back too, so I shall try to go to the monthly meetings, meet people and hopefully take it from there.

Whether I'll keep this train of thought up, I don't know. I'm having a good couple of days so it could all fall apart tomorrow.

I think I'm going to get myself a couple of anoles, this is of course providing nothing particularly fantastic and within my price range grabs my attention (please don't let me see any Colombian rainbow boas, please XD). I've restarted up my old project of building a mahusive vivarium for water dragons and basilisks. Someone up north someone is selling some Calotes emma, which is really tempting because of my soul owning love of agamids. We'll just ignore that I'm like that about Basilisks too and they're, well, I always think of them as iguanids because they were for years when I got into the subject, but since then they've been reclassified to belonging to the family Corytophanidae. Typical they have to be reclassified to something that's so much harder to pronounce.

I love taxonomy, it's such an annoying bloody subject.

Oh and I've got a bigger tv thanks to my grandad. Awesome.

WIP of Shiva.

This is just a close up of part of the picture. Yes, it's a fucking mahusive picture (woah, I've not used that word since training). Don't worry, close up is less than 600 px wide I do believe and behind a cut (obviously).

One day I'll finish this pic but it's going to take forever )

So, anywaay. I've not got back to anyone as I've been working on this thing for fecking hours and I do mean hours (apart from a short break to sleep - sort of, I've been working on this picture since the day before yesterday), in an attempt to stave off the panic attacks. Not that its working and I've been a fecking wreck for weeks. But the advantage of this is it does improve my drawing.

My hand hurts, the callous on my wrist where I rest when I'm drawing has grown twice as big overnight and I'm bored of looking up references on the internet for butterflies, crystals and trees. There is not enough tea and I need to eat something that doesn't consist of bread products and marmalade. But then I like marmalade, so how bad?

Still, not looking and feeling like shit would be appreciated sometime too. But can't have everything. All I can say, is if this keeps up for as long as it did last time I totally cracked up, I better have phenomenal cosmic drawing powers by the end of it!

Update on the wonderful world of gaming.

Spoilers possible for everything in the entire world )
