Ha! Bet you didn't even realise I was gone!

Well folks, its taken me sometime to get my life back on some sort of track, but life is picking up.

What can I tell you? Well, I'm now totally settled in Nottingham, finally living in my own house and not rented. House isn't ready yet - every small job turned out to be a nightmare.
"Lets put the new curtain rail up. Opps, half of the plastering up here is dry, cracked... and now on the floor. hmmm"
"Lets just fix the squeeky floorboard, and that one, and those five, and the on that runs the length of the whole bedroom AND the landing"

Still, the new sofa arrives today, so all I need to do in the living room now is get a new vivarium for Tequila (my blue-tongued skink), a coffee table, fix the CD rack to the wall, fit a phone socket, get blinds for the patio doors....
see what I mean?

I did get my priorities right though. 600 worth of new furniture in Bedroom 3 aka MY ROOM! PC set up with a nice 2.2 mbps broadband connection and a painting table soon to be fitted for my wargaming.

I'm still gaming, but then I'd be fired if I didn't. It's taken me 7 months to get a Full Time job within Games Workshop, but I got there in the end. Currently the Golden Boy, with ideas pouring from every pore. Actually, make that the Golden Old Man. We recently had a Trainee Manager in the store who is 8 years younger than me. God I feel old.

I mentioned a while back that I was taking an army of Snotlings to a recent GW event. Needless to say that being small, green and Legion in number doesn't always work, esp against Mercenaries, Empire or Dwarves. They do however work exceptionally well against Ogres. Just ask Mr Flibble











Sorry for the blank lines. I had to pick myself up off the floor. Flibble's huge, scary ogres beaten by a source of food. Sorry Dave, you know I'll never let you live this one down!

What else, what else. Well, I'm just basically glad to be back online and hope to chat to you folks soon.
Now, let's see how far this damned World of Warcraft patch has got...
GAH! 37% of 32.59MB done. This could take a while.

Oh well.

See you out there!

Thanks Triax, tis good to be back (but who's the comedian who went for the last option then eh???)

As for WoW, I'm playing on Aszune with the Britannic Lore guild with Flibble. Main character is a level 31 Troll Rogue called Grotmuncha, so if you (or anyone else) are ever there, send me a Tell Cool

Anotinia Bayle is EQ2 though Smile He is a WoW junkie!

Good to see your return Hoci. As you probably know, the staff and I are gearing up for E3, and have some awesome stuff planned. GCC 3 is also close, so you picked a good time for your triumphant return.

I knew things were hectic for you, and had faith you would lurk and/or return when things settled. Seems like things are full swing for you now, and on behalf of myself and the GCC members, it is good to have you back in the fold.

Is that a PvP server? I hope not. I've found trolls on those servers to be ganking sneakly little bastiches!

but of course, you wouldn't be that way would you Hoci Wink

Welcome back, Hoci! Good to hear you're settled in and enjoying the new job. Hmm... Warhammer. Now summer is upon us I can head out into the garden and undercoat some more Orcs Very Happy

We should be shopping over in Notts next week so I might drop by the shops in disguise and be one of those irritating customers with stupid questions - watch out for the guy with the thermos of weak lemon teeeaaaa...
