Grilltech's sweater a couple of days ago

My socks done

Grilltech's sweater today

Off and Running

I got up early enough it was still cool outside, so I went for a Zombies, Run! - well, more of a walk. The last time I completed a mission was back in April. Ugh. We've signed up for a 30 day TechMan TRI* at work starting in September. I figured, I need to get training now, because 140.6 miles is a long ways to go.

The car is hopefully fixed. There was a coolant leak that seemed to be the culprit. We also got new tires, so Fay** should be happy now.

I've got next week's breakfast to finish making and laundry to do. Today is going to be busy.

** Yes, we name our cars, Fay or Fat Ass as Grilltech likes to call her

List Day

  • I forgot to count the cars today
  • For some reason, I'm pretty snappy, even Grilltech has been a victim noticed it
  • No knitting for me tonight, my right wrist is a bit sore
  • My car is at the shop, getting worked on for bargain price of 800 bucks
  • 1.5 hours to go in my day, quite happy with that
  • Day is over and I'm ready to go home
  • Happy news, the Gnome won't be in tomorrow, he's off to Portland for soccer with the kids

Off with Her Head!

Anyone want a cat?

She snagged the Queen.

True Neutral?

I Am A: True Neutral Human Sorcerer (6th Level)

Ability Scores:







True Neutral A true neutral character does what seems to be a good idea. He doesn't feel strongly one way or the other when it comes to good vs. evil or law vs. chaos. Most true neutral characters exhibit a lack of conviction or bias rather than a commitment to neutrality. Such a character thinks of good as better than evil after all, he would rather have good neighbors and rulers than evil ones. Still, he's not personally committed to upholding good in any abstract or universal way. Some true neutral characters, on the other hand, commit themselves philosophically to neutrality. They see good, evil, law, and chaos as prejudices and dangerous extremes. They advocate the middle way of neutrality as the best, most balanced road in the long run. True neutral is the best alignment you can be because it means you act naturally, without prejudice or compulsion. However, true neutral can be a dangerous alignment when it represents apathy, indifference, and a lack of conviction.

Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Sorcerers are arcane spellcasters who manipulate magic energy with imagination and talent rather than studious discipline. They have no books, no mentors, no theories just raw power that they direct at will. Sorcerers know fewer spells than wizards do and acquire them more slowly, but they can cast individual spells more often and have no need to prepare their incantations ahead of time. Also unlike wizards, sorcerers cannot specialize in a school of magic. Since sorcerers gain their powers without undergoing the years of rigorous study that wizards go through, they have more time to learn fighting skills and are proficient with simple weapons. Charisma is very important for sorcerers; the higher their value in this ability, the higher the spell level they can cast.

Down the street on a warm, hazy day

The Queen blocked and in the sun

The Queen on the table. Ready to have stuff spilled all over it. Mostly by me, because it's not a meal unless I'm spilling something.

My current sock with X's and O's down the side

Almost the current progress on Grilltech's sweater. This is 19 inches, I'm almost done (this close) with the next skein. I might have one more to go before I start the arms.
