The Virtue of Silence

I haven't written in a long time because I've been really busy. I'm also kinda needing an escape right now because my WoW account has been cut off by my husband for a while. He is really getting on my nerves right now. He cuts off wow and gametap and a few other gami ng services we use (leaving up the ones only he uses) saying that we need to be/get more active and signs us up for the Y. I wouldn't mind except for the last week (since we got signed up) he has been complaining that he doesn't have any work out clothes. So I take him to a clothing store to get him some and before we even get in the door he is argueing with me about stupid shit and by the time we get inside he is about to explode for no goddamn reason and I'm pissed as hell at him. I am sick of having these little moments where in less than two seconds each of us is ready to kill the other. I just wish he would listen to some fucking reason for once!

This is Me

I am so strung out right now. My family pulls me in 100 different directions every time I talk to them. Why can't I just be me? I want to be a toy peddling, warcraft playing, fun loving, beach bumming, child caring, craft making, knit-o-holic that leads her own life but they won't let me do that. And any time a agree to do something with them or for them it suddenly becomes a huge omfg kind of thing. Like recently I agreed to go and watch my little brother for a few days while my mom is out of town on a business trip. Well a few days turned into a week and a half. Then my husband decided that I couldn't go because it wasn't conveinent for HIM (because he doesn't like taking care of himself) and he SAID it was becuase he had planned a big party for my birthday this weekend. He even invited people from out of town to be there without telling me. This whole thing is a disaster waiting to happen and I'm stuck in the middle as usual!! I hate being the one that everyone dumps their problems on. I hate being considered "unreliable" because if I can't handle all of the shit other people throw at me they call me that. I'm sick of haters. I wanted a nice quiet birthday but it looks like I'm in for one hell of a ride.

My alliance guild has planned a big raid for my birthday and now I don't think I'm going to be able to make it. Stupid bullshiting goddamn pussy ass mofos!! Sorry I had to vent.

Now that I'm better I will tell you about my various projects. Although I don't have pictures yet (camera is busted) the horde swag is coming along nicely. I picked a black background with a cool fluffy off-white yarn for the emblem. I know that traditional is red but I didn't have a red yarn on hand that I liked and was the same weight as the black. In any case it looks pretty good so far and I want to get pictures up soon. Hopefully I will be able to get things working with my camera soon.

The following picture was taken durring a guild raid on VC (Deadmines for those not familiar with the shorthand) on Farstriders server. I am the Troll not facing the camera because it was a spur of the moment kind of thing, and unfortunately it looks like I am the only one in the picture wearing our tabard so you can't see it. I will have to post a picture of the tabard soon.
Anyway here it is in all of its Horde glory. I loved doing this raid as it was lots of fun to have all of our lowbie members present. Ivorius and I were the highest levels present (him 34 and me 30) and the lowest one present was Bellamorte (10) so I was holding aggro while Ivo and Veruca (32) killed stuff and Lock (20) was practicing his sapping skills.
All in all it was a very fruitfull run.

Memphis and Math

So I've been super psyched about going to Memphis for some time now and all of a sudden we aren't going to move. My husband's company he works for matched the amount he would have been getting in Memphis and we have had some other opportunities in town open up including me expanding my For Your Pleasure business. This is awesome because not only will we have enough money to live comfortably we will not have to pay people to help us move to get it. I hope that everything works out with it.

In other news I have recently completed my Calculus class and am really glad it's over but kinda upset because I don't know if I passed yet. I'm hoping that I passed so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Being one class away from a degree is just stupid and I worked my tail off to get this far.

Any way that is all the news I have for now but I will try and keep posting more stuff about what's going on.

Random Happenings

Whew. I know I haven't posted in a while but this has been a really busy week for me. We had all kinds of family here yesterday and it was crazy trying to clean up and get ready for that. I have been packing and throwing stuff away like mad getting ready for this move. Saturday we are having a big yard sale and I'm a little nervous about getting ready for it because it's going to be really hard to part with some of this stuff but.. out with the old in with the new.

In other news I am still struggling to reach lvl 66 on my gnome but I just hit 28 on my troll! PVP time! Time to run WSG like it's going out of style. I want the honor so I can get the really nice axes for her when she hits 60. I know there is better in outlands quests but not until you get to Terokkar and not until you have done some lead up quests so :P

I'm going to post some screen shots that I took a while ago now because they are fun and I need some pictures up here.
This is my gnome Redden in Gadgetzen after using the transporter and drinking some noggenfogger. Notice I'm not a very high level yet in this picture. It was taken quite some time ago but I still have the chicken. Awesome little chicken that looks just like the gnoish engineering battle chicken. :)
I just did another search of my pictures and I don't see another one worth posting right now but I will look for one to post in the next blog entry.
Moving on...
My knitting has sort of been put off recently with all of this packing and cleaning getting ready for our big move I haven't really had time. I'm going to make some time soon though becauase I need to for my peace of mind. I'm going to go now so that I can finish up some packing but I'll post again soon!

Story building

I'm trying to come up with some story lines for the characters on my Role Playing relm but I have sort of hit a writers block. It can be hard to concentrate on more than one thing at a time and not everyone on that server role plays which makes it even more confusing.

*sigh* Oh well I guess it will come to me some time.

In other news I have recently completed a hat (pictures to come) and have just cast on my first horde knitting project. I can't get my camera to connect properly right now but I will get pictures up as soon as I can.

I think the horde knit will be fun. I decided to try making a sweater but it may end up as a tank top since it is getting in to the summer months and the yarn I'm using is really light weight left over from some other project. I hope I have enough but if I don't have enough for a shirt I can always make it a dishcloth! lol! I have so many wips now it is crazy but I can't seem to stay focused on one project long enough to finish it.

I actually made a toeless sock just because I wanted to get it off my needles but it turned out great becuase my son loves to wear it on his foot (way too big for him) when he is playing dress up. I think I'll try to make him a tool belt for when he wants to be Bob the Builder.. What am I saying!! more projects I won't finish! Bad Red. No Cookie!

Anyway I'm going to go try to finish some of these endless projects.
Welcome to Redden Rants. This is going to be where I write down all of the things that go on in my life including how annoying Barrens chat is!!

I am a big time WoW player and if you use the armory to look up my name I am almost every Redden listed. I have characters named Redden on 7 different servers. I also have chacters with the word Red in them on several servers. My main relms are Farstriders, Aerie Peak, Anub'arak, and Andorhal.

I play both Alliance and Horde but lately horde is what I have been favoring. I love my troll. My main class is warrior but I have dabbled in every class and race they offer.

I am also a fanatic of knitting. I have just recently started to combine my two loves with some horde symbol color charts. I will be posting some of these ideas later but one of them came from another blog called Musings of an undead podcasting knitter.
