|12:59 am - I acomplished something|
If you know me and how i handle things i generally have a problem with my end game.
I get excited about doing something do it work on it like a demon but if something holds me up and I don't finish soon afterwards i just sorta sit there for ever.
But in the past two days i can say i did something
I read 2 books cover to cover (Paperback novels of average length.)
Myth-nomers and Im-Pervections
and Licscence Invoked (or Revoked can't remember)
both are by Robert Asprin though the second is a colaberation with Jody Lyn Nye or however you spell her name.
but Liscence is really good dealing with music and government funded witchcraft set in New Orleans. I just gotta say Acid Irish Folk Song Punk.
But the other thing i did. I built Mecha.
I had bought a Master Grade Gundam.
Well over 5 hours and 40 minutes tonight i put it together.
For thoose who have seen the Level comercials for Gundam.
The american versions go up to Level 5 which is the japanese equivalent to a High Grade model.
Master is Level 6 or 7 and Perfect Grade is level 8 or 9.
Cost goes up by a bunch too. i paid 75 for my master which is about 10-20 too much.
but i wanted it.
The Perfect grade i really want is about 200 dollars. But since i busted through the master grade i will be getting the perfect in around a month or too. (gotta cut down on the spending)
I still have to do some decal and line work as well as clean up some of the pieces but it is completed and now set up on a coworkers monitor for him to laugh at in the morning.
He had two 1/144 scale gundams on top of his monitor. (about 5 inches)
Mine is 1/100 scale and around 9 inches tall. So you have two small gundams on one side and my big one on the other. I taped a small word balloon to one of the small ones with the simple phrase.
ok i have an odd sense of humor but at least i had fun in the nice and quiet office while building the mech.
I'm off to sleep now. night.
Current Mood: accomplished
ooooh... Gundams.... ^^ I just have a couple of the little easy ones (level 2 I think, nothing special)... but I so want those GW Endless Waltz kits that come with the pilot figures. That was a random comment but I just love those kits for some reason... No matter how much the decals peeve me ^_^

The decals is all i really have left and do not look forward to it.
especially since the instructions are in japanese :)
The 200 dollar one i want is a Zeta-006 Gundam.
Not only does it light up but it transforms. :)
Of course if i could have any model kit i'd get the 1400 dollar kit. its a 4 foot tall gundam :)
Ah... Robert Asprin. License Invoked. Got it too.
I just kept thinking "Mulder!" every time I smacked into the guy.

Who Asprin? or the character in the book?
Can't say i've ever met him. :)
Book character guy. IIRC, tall skinny dark-haired weird government agent up to his arse in magic....

True. Though he is a bit more outgoing. And you can hardly continue the illusion to Scully. She wasn't really a non-believer.
Was a nice book all in all. heh
