Gone, but not for Long

Looks like I hit my wall even faster than last year, unless the flurry of posts to close out 2014 count.  But I’ve no plans to disappear until the end of the year again.  Whenever I get around to scanning stuffs again, I’ll have fresh card posts to share.  In the meantime, I’ll see about getting around to more 30 Day Anime Challenge posts, and if we’re lucky/unlucky, depending on what you think of my work, maybe some poetry as well, to bridge the great divide.

I can at least say I’ve even been a little bit productive away from the blog this time out.  I have a bit of fresh art and, shockingly, even a little writing to show for my slacking off here.  The first several hundred words, as well as a new story bible, for Nexus Eternum are under way.

I really should have more to show for it, but you know how easily distracted I can be, even without the assistance of the internet and social media.  Still though, it’s amazing how much free time opens up when you aren’t really even thinking about cards at all for a significant stretch (going on two weeks now).  Once I know for sure if, and/or how badly, my checkbook is wrecked, I will get to work finishing packing up the handful of outstanding deals I have in the works, to be sent out as soon as I am able.

For the rest of today though, I have another hour or so of art in me, and a round of relatively intense cleaning to do.  Maybe I can work in a little food, and maybe even a shower too, if I really put my mind to it. 😛

Thanks for stopping by!  I’ll try to be back soon.

Here’s a random card from one of my last major scanning sessions.

Sincerely,

Going for Broke

In addition to the recently updated theme and some infrastructure-type tweaking, I decided to finally just throw everyone I like on the Single Page Sensations page and see what sticks.  Here are all the new additions, and re-additions, so let’s trade!

In addition, a few older Single Pages and full player collections are going to be reorganized.  Once I know what I’m keeping, the stuff I don’t want will be moved to the Trade Bait page.

I don’t know if burning through all of this in my 30th year of being will be my last great collecting hurrah or something else entirely, but I know I’m going to have lots of fun along the way.

Into the fire…

And then… Nothing!

That’s how it goes for me it seems.  Get up a head of steam and get a lot of posts in over a week or two and then flame out.  But I’m still here!  My plans to get a lot of stuff sent earlier in the month were kinda botched by a combination of my attention deficit… ooh shiny, and the stupid, stupid fartweasels running this place.  Picking apart things you’ve never so much as mentioned before, even though you’ve known about them for years is a very good way to piss me the hell off.  It’s bad enough when it doesn’t ultimately negatively effect the outcome, but when you use it to fail me, and talk down at me the whole time, you just put yourself in a place you don’t want to be in with me.

So my issues with the idiots in charge are far from settled, but while I’m waiting to see what happens next, I have gotten busy on the trading front.  There are currently nine packages precariously stacked (two separate stacks, even I’m not dense enough to try one stack… I’m also not tall enough) atop my refrigerator.  Eight of them are either completely ready, or are just waiting to be addressed.  The other one is still being crammed with a few more cards.

On top of all that, I have three others almost ready to be packaged up, and a couple more a that won’t take too long either.  So that’s about 14 packages or so.  And I have about $25 on me to finish out the month.  I think that will get at least half of them sent.  Some are pretty decent-sized.

Anyway, yeah, just wanted to update y’all with what was going on.  Not sure when exactly everybody’s stuff will go out, but I’ll be out Monday or Tuesday, and at least a few packages will go out then.

Peace and things…

It’s Always Something…

Apologies for starting to drop off the posting pace again, it isn’t for lack of content or anything to say.  To put it briefly, as of early Sunday morning, my keyboard is on the fritz… yes I somehow managed to kill another one.  Anyway, this is being written via crummy on-screen keyboard, which is no good for posts of any real length.  So, no more posts (of much substance anyway) until this can be dealt with.

However, I can still do smaller chunks of work.  As such, I’ve been slowly working on a couple of my pages.  My Wantlist is very nearly up to date, and a bit more colorful now (somewhat inspired by Fuji’s very colorful blog), and I’ve done the same with my trade bait page as well.  I’m also finally slowly adding my available hits to over there, so be sure to stop by and see if there’s anything you like!  The vast majority of my available his should be up by sunrise.

So yeah, that’s what’s up.  I’ll still be around though.  Holla.

Now, where did I put that Price is Right loser horn?

A New Page Appears!

I now a have page with some cards I have available for trade. There is just stuff I’ve gotten recently over there right now, but I’ll get more stuff up eventually. Check it from time to time.

I’m also working on the wantlist page as well, organizing it a little better, and posting what I have from the sets I’m trying to collect, so you’ll know what else I need.

Oh, I almost forgot.  Today is the last day to make a guess in my contest.  It’s over at midnight, for real this time.  If you haven’t picked a number yet, you’ve only got 15 or 16 hours left.  Go here and guess!: 5000 Hit Contest
