A Good Week

I’ve been working on some Mass Effect cosplay for PAX for a while. It’s got a lot done for it but I’m going to wait until it’s finished before I start doing a proper post for it. In the meantime I’ll leave you with this quick Photoshop job. Yes the years are both off slightly (2154-2186) but I was tired and apparently couldn’t read or do math at the time. Image

Other than that I just want to remark on how good things are actually going when I stop to think about it. Work continues to be work, but things are changing for the better in ways I didn’t think would be possible for years. Talk about a blessing in disguise… I’m losing a little money in this process for the moment, but in about a month that will be fixed.

I’m still having trouble believing the NHL is back. That might have something to do with the Leafs beating the Habs IN Montreal tonight. That definitely makes it feel less real, but infinitely more delicious. About as delicious as finally holding my Canadian Citizenship papers is.

Also I want to make sure everyone out there is aware of John Scalzi’s Redshirts. I picked it up Friday and couldn’t put it down. As the name implies, it explores the horrible, terrifying life that Redshirts have to live in a situation very much like the original Star Trek. I’m really bummed it’s over because I want to keep reading it.

That reminds me. I’ve been playing a lot of Star Trek Online, and I should really do a proper review of the game. I haven’t completed the Federation story yet (hit level 50 in season 6 so I stopped, again not wanting it to end) and started playing the hell out of the Klingons. I could go on for quite a while on that, but I’ll save it for a proper post. In the meantime, here’s where playing through Mass Effect again has left its mark.Image
