Patience, Patewan...

I'm sure some of you have noticed that I haven't posted anything in awhile, and my recent posts have been far more erratic.  I'm very sorry about that.  Let me give you my list of excuses:

I really only have one, and it's actually a good REASON.

I had to get a job.  Not only have I not been working for the better part of a year and a half, but I've been collecting unemployment from the hard-earned tax dollars paid by others (well, actually my own, but lately I've been on the extension which is untraceable to my own previous income, so at least some of it has been other peoples' money).  Now anyone that knows me can tell you that I LIKE to work.  This year has been terrible as I spent a goodly amount of time applying and reapplying and applying some more to jobs. 

Luckily for me, I finally found a company that needed my specific skills- fast learner, initiative, people management, and problem solving.  In fact, they needed me so badly that my first two weeks of work was while I wasn't even in the system.  Painful as it was, I've basically made myself as indispensable as possible to them to prove my commitment and push my hiring as fast as possible.

Unluckily for me, I've signed on with a company in which the workload isn't on a consistent schedule and the chain of command are all behind or on vacation at this point in time.  I haven't slept well in two and a half weeks.  Therefore, I haven't been able to dedicate ANY time to the hobby.

Be patient with me as I get my work-life stabilized.  As soon as I have a real paycheck coming in (and that's a big advantage- I'll be making real money!), I'll be able to purchase such things as the new Necron Codex.  As soon as I know my schedule more than a day in advance, I may even begin to play some games again. 

In the meantime, consider this an intermission.  Go to the snack bar and pick up some Nachos.  It shouldn't be long...

As always, Happy Hobbying!
