Today is my birthday

So I’m 37 today. Feeling pretty awesome.

If you want to do something nice for my birthday, and you need to do any online shopping at Amazon or B&N, just go through the links on the side bar to the right and it is like a tip jar/birthday present. I get an advertising refferal. I got $6 the other day when somebody bought some sweet new boots. 🙂

My friends are taking me out to lunch. Saturday I got to play some Warmachine. (I should have lost, but my opponent’s dice loved me, then my last standed Titan Gladiator killed 2 man 0’wars and Beast 09 during feat turn, then Zaal shot the Butcher to death, which makes absolutely no sense to most of you, but the war game geeks are all like “In your face!”).  Friday night is Writer Nerd Game Night, which I am very excited for.  And I’m going to try and take my kids shooting this week too.

I’ve managed to avoid the news for a couple of days, so my blood pressure is doing fine. Last night I ate ice cream with home made peanut butter sauce and pistachios on top.

I wrote 3,000 words of Warbound on Friday and another 3,000 words on Saturday, which is okay, but not great word count for me, but it is coming along. Swords of Exodus is coming along nicely, and Mike is close to done with his half, and then we are just editing things together.  So it looks like SoE will be the next one in the bag.

For Correia Family Sunday Afternoon Craft Time Fun, I painted this guy:

The iPhone doesn’t do him justice. He came out really well. The camera isn’t picking up most of the color variation or shading, so I’ll need to bust out the light box and my wife’s good camera.

The base is a piece of gravel from vacation. Yes. We go to beautiful Mesa Verde, and I’m all like, oooooh, these flat rocks will totally fit on a base…

So my birthday week is going well.

EDIT: Yes. I also share a birthday with Ron Paul and HP Lovecraft. Draw your own conclusions.
