After a break of some months I started painting again tonight. Starting with my Kubelwagon and some German infantry as my German and Japanese forces are considerably smaller than any of the allied armies we've collected and naturally enough that limits the size of our games. Got a load of German and Japanese stuff to paint up as well the odd allied vehicle (Sherman Firefly & a Soviet Katyusha rocket launcher). Although I am painting most of my stuff up in early war uniforms (because it is a lot simpler to paint plain gray than do the camo scheme they had), I've decided to do the Kubelwagon in black and go a bit Hollywood WW2. Maybe paint some decals on the wings.

Got sent a video from Kristi. Ash has almost mastered crawling. We'd been debating on wither or not she should come home on Friday or Sunday, since Saturday night is the Sergeants Mess Summer Ball, which means very loud music can be heard all over the town until the last of them pass out drunk, normally sometime past 5 in the morning. Our house is soundproofed against the noise of jet engines taking off, but apparently not against the summer ball.

Oh, I seem to remember some people saying how much they liked the Gargoyles cartoon. Not one I am familiar with, but I did see this http://epicstream.com/news/Jordan-Peele-Reportedly-Wanted-To-Turn-Gargoyles-Series-Into-A-Live-Action-Reboot?utm_content=bufferfd4ef&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=epicbuffer which may interest fans.

A friend posted up some old pictures of us together.



This was us about to pass out of basic training. Funny how much the world would change for us exactly a week after this picture was taken.




Me with my first command. My combat squad was about to load up our gear and head into the field. Just before taking this picture, the photographer said "Everyone show me your war faces!" I fear my squad somewhat let me down in this regard.

Ash has apparently decided to claim the Peoples Eyebrow as his own!

I liked Weaveworld a lot. Have you read his Abarat novels?

Well looks like I am not going to be finding this fathers day to be as painful as the previous two were. I was given some comics (a Deadpool one and an old Marvel one called 'Chamber Of Chills' from '72. Its got an adaption of a Robert E. Howard story), and a set of Munchkin (Munchkin Fu for anyone familiar with this series of games).

Kristi and Ash are off to church although I really wanted him to stay home with me today. I think next week I'll insist on dad & baby time.

I liked the Hellbound Heart, wasn't quite as big a fan of the Books Of Blood. The best way I can describe Abarat is him doing a kids book, but still very much in his style.

Think I might need to put in for a weeks leave. Not to do anything in particular. Indeed quite the opposite. I think I want to spend it doing nothing.

Of course, as all the parents out there will very well know, doing nothing is a highly relative term.

My job isn't stressful (well it has it moments, but in general), but I am finding myself feeling very stressed at work and I am not sure why. I hope I am not starting to care about it again, that is the last thing I need. I suspect I just haven't killed someone I should. After all, stress is what you get when you don't kill someone who deserves it. ;) Or maybe I just want to be at home watching Ash grow.

Had to get Jim to send me the video of the two women and the conker. It is strangely facinating. Mostly because of the sounds the women makes. Maybe there is just something wrong with me, but it is like car crash TV.

Thinking about getting one of my fellow wargamers to paint up some figures for me. I do not care for the painting side of the hobby, but it would be nice to have an army painted up to a nice standard I guess.

Went through my fb page deleting people who were only on friends list because of some online game or another that I no longer played. I've kept a few people who became online friends there, but I went from 244 people down to about 178. I am pretty sure I don't actually like that many people though, must be a few more I can cut out. Whereas some people like to have as many friends on there as possible I seem to prefer having the minimum I can get away with.

I had a dream last night. Ever read the book 'I Am Legend'? Well, it was sort of that situation only the last surviving human was Indy and rather everyone else being vampires everyone else in the world had seen Jurassic World 2 except for him. It had went through the cinema and he hadn't been able to see it, every time he went to buy it on DVD it was sold out, and his internet connection was too slow to stream it online. He bought the book of the novel to try and at least read it, but the only copy he could find was written in Mandarin.

Had a board game night tonight, playing Munchkin Fu and Dungeon. Still need to get to play Lovecraft Letter though. We are slowly working our way through our unplayed board games, but then playing board games and buying them seem to be entirely seperate hobbies.
