    In no particular order:

    • Wandering around with my wife and a friend to look for shiny Shuckles and Latios in PoGo.
    • Spitballing my next couple chapters with the wife who proof of concepts my stuff and does some light editing.
    • Playing around in Daz3D studio to hopefully finally get a accurate render of one of my main characters.
    • Getting to Sprint to take my old phone off the plan and put my wife on by herself to save some money.

    As you can see some VERY riveting things. lol

    Chances of your cat being killed by something outside your house are much higher than inside. Do you love you cat? Then keep them inside.

    Writing out the story of a man who has several kids and the story of those children with some supernatural and superhuman elements as it goes on.

    I had the concept for it as a comic but everyone I approached for the art was either super busy or WAY the fuck out of my price range. So it felt to me to get it done so Im doing it as a series of novels.

    Im about half to 3/4 the way through the first book with a ton of content already done for the kids and their kids. This is the first thing Ive ever written that wasnt required by school or a job and its seriously kicking my creative ass. Im GREAT with dialogue but description is hard for me. So I end up writing out the conversations and fleshing it out from there.

    The scope of it is also pretty terrifying. lol As a comic I had it projected to be 10 issue seasons with 6 seasons. Novels? Holy shit Im looking at 20 to 25 chapters for the first book alone.

    That said, Ive wanted to create something for a while but its never escaped my head so the fact that this is free flowing is amazing. So Im just riding the wave and letting it happen. I dont even care if it ever makes money, I just want to make something that someone else can enjoy.

    Nice try boss. lol

    Umm, it depends on the day. Im the site tech for everything at our corporate office.
    So it everything is running smoothly and no one breaks anything I can usually get a couple PoGo raids in and do some writing.
    But then theres days like yesterday where I had two new people starting, one developer needing things before going on a working vacation, a manager still not finding things on his new laptop, and a massive television getting installed in a conference room.

    So it comes in waves. Some days Im working my ass off, others Im dicking around all day.

    My friends older brother, who was in the army, would bring him stuff back that was always subtitled from where ever he was stationed. So we got DBZ with Korean subtitles.
    We watched the shit out of the cell through majin buu saga not knowing a damn thing they were saying.

    This is super cool of you. I was looking to get a site up and going for a story I'm writing but it would be 90% text only and thus a waste of your skills.

    My mother hated cats due to some irrational fear of them stealing a child's breath or some stupid shit, so I only had dogs growing up. I became Choo's stepdad when my wife, then girlfriend, moved to my state. Choo was a big black and white fluff who was friendly and vocal and loved attention. The absolute best starter cat anyone could have wished for. She had lots of chirps, meows, and a big purr. She loved to be petted and get tummy rubs. My wife had her from a kitten and she came into my life when she was six. She LOVED butter and bacon grease.

    She was a large (size not girth) cat, so much so people assumed she was a boy, but in 2012 she got VERY skinny and lethargic. I took a day from work and sat in the waiting room of the vet office crying because I was worried so was dying. Turns out she had hyperthyroid. So she went on pills and improved a bit. She had ups and downs in weight as her body got used to the pills and ramped her thyroid up again.

    Last year, she got a lump under her chin, which got larger very quickly and turned out to be cancer. We made the SUPER difficult decision to put her to sleep in April last year. I had lost dogs before and tons of people so while it sucked I was still operational. My wife, however, hadnt lost anyone and Choo was her first pet. She was devastated and spent the months leading up to and after the event in a haze.

    That happened in upstate NY and we were set to move back to the DC area. My job started first so I was staying with friends during the two week stretch before we could take our apartment. I stayed with my sister on the weekend to give my friend and his wife some alone time. I had stopped at a park and was relaxing by the lake when I heard meowing. I look behind me and there is a little orange scruff looking right at me and calling for me. I walk over and after some initial hesitation, he does the leg rub thing. I pet him no problem. Pick him up no problem. Play with his paws no problem. At this point I decide this guy is WAY to nice and trusting to be out on his own. So I look up the closest shelter and take him there. While in the car he alternates between relaxing on the back seat or in my lap.

    I text my wife and sister and both of them are unanimous with "You cant give him away! He chose you!!!". Admittedly he was super adorable, but I had nowhere to keep him (no apartment). So to the shelter he went, but they held him for a check and said I could have him when the waiting/check period was over. Long story short we now have a large (girth not size) orange fluff who is much quieter than his predecessor but no less affectionate.

    Ahh, forgot the cat tax.

    Got one at my last place and the wife and I loved it. Our new place, not so much. The toilets are smaller so my knees tend to be way higher and thats just uncomfortable. She still loves it though.
