A Life Update

Well it's been a year and then some since I waited a year to update this blog! I know I still have readers so here's a life update on everyone's favorite flippered girl!

I cannot believe my Runescape heyday was five YEARS ago! I got my magnum opus, the agility skillcape, 5 years ago earlier this month. I haven't played since January 2013 and have no clue who I'd even recognize from my friends list if I logged in right now. My dad still plays, surprisingly, though very sparingly but I've pretty much walked away... :-(

So... what's happened since my last update? Well, I now have a 15 month old daughter named Molly and I'm pregnant again with her little sister, Emerald, who should be here at the end of June or beginning of July! I've been busy being a mom and working at the crack of dawn at the best job in the world for introverts like me. I still enjoy Runescape fan art and I have several RS friends on Facebook that I keep up with. I'm about to turn 26 and celebrate my 3rd wedding anniversary! :o

I still have a huge place in my heart for all the many people I befriended throughout my RS career, which again spanned from 2006 to 2013. If anyone feels like watching vlogs on youtube of my kids growing up they may do so HERE. If you look at playlists you can also watch many of my old Runescape videos and laugh (and maybe cry) at how things were in 2010.

I guess that's it for now. Until next time!!

So, a Year Later....

Hi guys. It's been a whole year since I've updated this blog! I know I left everyone hanging with my glitch videos and I might get around to posting them. I still have them. :P

So let's see what has happened since December 2012....

In January I retired from Runescape. I HATED the EOC update and while I'm sure it runs a whole lot better than it did, I hated it so much that it turned me off from doing any fighting. That meant I was stuck skilling, mostly farming, and I got bored very quickly. I did get 99 farming right before I quit, so I have 10 99's now, yay. Also, indirectly because of EOC, ALL of my ways of making money became obsolete so I had no way to make cash like I was used to. That made it really hard to do any of the money-intensive training I wanted to do, like smithing.

Also I was having some clan issues and just wasn't happy with any chats as they seemed to get overrun with people I found annoying rather quickly. The social aspect was the last remaining reason why I played and with that gone I finally left. Also a lot of my great friends that I would PM all the time quit or changed their settings so I couldn't reach them. Only a few remained when I left.

I've been using those Target membership cards and just let it run out and never looked back. I may play again at some point but right now it'll be a while. I don't even know how many of my friends still play and it's a whole different world now.

Moving onto some real life events this year...
In late January, I had to say goodbye to Eenie. It was heartbreaking but I feel no guilt. I had her half my life and she definitely lived a long and happy life with me. She died in my arms and was buried under the same tree where we first met each other when I was 12. Those who know me well know how much I loved my cat and all the silly videos I made with her.

I still think of her daily.

That same day I got promoted to fulltime at work, helping time to fly by. I worked from 1 - 9:30 five days a week from February to November and that got us to break out of apartment living and buy our first house! It's a house I know well, as we bought it from my parents and they were the ones who moved. It's cool now owning and living in the house I grew up in. Plus, my parents only moved across town so they're still here.

In April I found out I was again expecting and felt for a long time that I literally traded my cat for a baby. I sit here, 3 days past my due date, tummy HUGE, waiting for our baby girl to arrive. And yes, we're totally legit for reals naming her Molly. It really is my favorite name. :D

So yeah, I've been wanting to update this blog a few times but never felt like it, so I figured the year mark would be the perfect time. I am going to keep this blog up as a memory of a time when I had a lot of fun with an online game and instead of it becoming a stale blog I am thinking of turning it into a crafting blog where I can post craft projects I've done in one dedicated place. I can call it "putting 99 crafting to good use" or something like that. I do love me a good crafting project. :P

As for my dad, he has also quit RS and has decided to become a music major at the college I went to so he's busy with that. He's doing the major I started with, composition, and hopefully the program will be much better for him than it was for me. It's funny to see him freaking out over chord progressions and stuff I did as an 18-year-old. Hahaha.

So yes I am still here but, at least for the time being, will not be blogging about Runescape any longer. I had a lot of fun and many wonderful times, many which are immortalized in screenies and blog posts. I've seen and experienced a lot in the 6 years I played and will always have a special place in my heart for the music. And the flippers. XD

Happy Holidays everyone and until next time...

Snelm Glitch

Ahahahhahaha I am still laughing so hard oh my gosh!!!!!

If you're a female, and you have the most awesome Snelm in the world (blood n tar round) then your head becomes disembodied. I'll post some videos later but here is a picture that doesn't even do it justice:

It reminded me of a specific meme.....

Yeah. This one. XD

Until Next Time...

#19 and Green

Today (technically yesterday now... October 18) I sat down and did that new mining/smiffin quest because of the super awesome anvil pendant and the charges I could get on it. The quest was easy and fun and although I had the worst time finding the guy to start the redone Death Plateau quest I was able to finish the quest and all the tasks that followed in a few hours.

I love this amulet! It's awesome!

Before I did the quest though, I got something I wasn't expecting for another year or two!

90 Smiffin! This makes #19 and leaves just 6 more skills under 90. I can't believe it either. I can make freaking DFS's now!!!

I got a cool shot of the ribbon ceremony.

 Let me shooken your hand. :P

So in some random recent news....

I bought the Zanaris 2 toned hair and after spending an hour trying to get colors I liked and that looked nice I decided on black and purple. Here I am modeling it at a star:

I LOVE my Deathcon shirt!

My friend Raven got himself a cool outfit that included a 3a robe top. I actually like how they looked and asked if I could try it on.

I was so happy that he agreed! All these long coats look good with ele. :P

Getting sort of into the Halloween spirit, I have changed my outfit again. I'll probably be doing this a lot more now, as I don't feel as attached to any particular piece of clothing anymore... Except flippers. Flippers will remain forever. And the agility cape will appear oft. :P

So two years ago I had an orchestra concert on Halloween and somehow nobody thought it would be cool to wear costumes. It's stupid, because last year, even though our concert wasn't even on Halloween, we were encouraged to wear costumes. I went as my RS char and made my own moonclan. Anyway the year before that, even though we didn't dress up at all, I had to get in the Halloween spirit so I went into my closet and dug out only green items. It wasn't hard; the hard part was choosing what to wear!

Soooo.... that year I was...

Obscenely Green on Halloween
So green that I made my professor jump and do a double take when he saw me. XD

Anyway it was really easy to carry that title over into RS, especially with my new two toned hair. Here's my attempt at Obscenely Green on Halloween on Runescape:

Zanaris hair in the 2 greens, double eyepatches (I couldn't find a good hat), Guthix God Cape, Harmony- T2, Green Ele, Guthix Stole, Karamja Gloves (though I usually go with tribal bracelets), Magic Secateurs, Illuminated Book of Balance, Green Skin, and Flippers.

If I had a farm cape I'd wear it but I'm *only* 96. :P

I have gotten some comments on being the green lady and stuff like that. I hope people like it as much as I do!

Here's to tinking dat anvil for another 8 million xp...

See, even Wartface uses Piespeak! My Bash-Bash With a Hammer level is 90.

Until Next Time...

This World

 I have doomed it.

Suck it, Nomad. Three years is far too long.

The fire to get my quest cape back has been rekindled.

Thank you Instakill Dart for doing what should have been done so long ago.

October 1st has been a good day.

Until Next Time...

Loki and Thor

 My friend Lothar Hantz and I did a star together this evening (with a couple members of DD as well) and after he saw my Loki outfit he decided to dress up as Thor for a photo shoot. Ownage.

We make a sexy pair of Bros. :P

Until next time...

Sir Burny McFlamepants

I've been pretty busy. Here's the pics to prove it happened:

I actually did it! Once I got going with the flame gloves, ring of fire, and clan avatar I was making excellent xp! I did 1.2m xp in 6 hours today. That probably beat con for fastest leveling of 98-99. So yeah that's pretty much what I've been doing the past month-ish, with lots of breaks to chase stars.

Thanks to Bass Daddy, Kelledy, Uza Darkstar, and Miseryshadow who flew out to Seers to see me get the big fireworks. And thanks to our clan avatar, Steve Ortman, for getting me lots of bonus xp on top of bonus xp. I now have 9 99's and have more skills than combats again. I have no idea what I'm gonna get next but for now enjoy this incredibly nubby but tastefully flipper-matching cape. :P

99 Firemaking!

Until next time...
