Anyway. The news is short and not terribly good: Scott is being deployed at the end of January, to Kabul, Afghanistan. I'm not totally sure if it just hasn't hit yet, or if I'm having one of those weird non-feeling moments. Either way, I'll be spending six months by myself. He gets two blocks of fifteen minute phone calls a week (he thinks), and I do want him to call his family, too, so most of our communication will be via e-mail and IMing. Kinda like it was at the beginning of our relationship.
No really. I'm fine. Not sure how long it'll last, but I'm okay. (probably two weeks into February; I loathe February)

On a happier note, I'm nerding out for Halloween and I'm going to be a night elf druid. From World of Warcraft, for those of you not in the know. =P Anyhoo, we're going home for that, so I gets to go trick-or-treating again (couldn't last year, due to errr... well, what would YOU think if the Lieutenant's childless wife showed up on the doorstep with zer pupper, trickortreatin?). Hopefully it's not TOO cold, because my costume is a bit on the chilly side... even with the cloak, which doesn't really go, but it's warm, so I'm taking it anyway. :D

Yeah... I feel odd, but I kinda have all day. Life is just sort of surreal lately, although I'm sure it'll pass, since it usually does. Happy Halloween! *evil laugh*

Well, bugger. It's November, isn't it? Tomorrow, I drive to Glenrock to leave my furrry nuisances with my in-laws, and then it's ROAD TRIP time! My friend Katie and I are goin to Albuquerque to see Nightwish (which I swear I mentioned before). I'd be more excited, but it's kinda 1 am. Or, as my body likes to tell me, 2 am. It always takes me awhile to get used to daylight savings time either way. The end result, as you can tell from me posting this at 1 am, is a hideous bout of insomnia. I'm going to have to take a nap tomorrow... 

Anyway.....well, the Rockies got flattened, which would have upset me more if they hadn't pitched like CRAP. 'Sides, the Red Sox are a pretty good team, so everyone was expecting this. Well, not for them to get swept, but for them to lose. Must have been the ridiculously long rest they got beforehand. 

I've been puttering around on Photoshop (I have Elements), and I'm up to...10 deviations and a scrap on DevArt. Most of it is Final Fantasy fanart, as I have no scanner...yet. Scott's in Alabama, doing officer training, and since he drove instead of flying, we get bonus moneys. First of all, bills. Second, maybe a desktop for me. I love this thing dearly, but it's getting full. Photoshop takes up a RIDICULOUS amount of space. On top of that, I'm a gamer, and games take up waaay more than anything else. Third, an HDTV for my whiny husband. ;) Then... maybe I can get a scanner. I need either that or Tablet, cuz I can't draw with a mouse for shit. I'm lazy, so I'd prefer Tablet, but a scanner would be nice for other reasons than my own drawings, so that's prolly what I'll get. We have a printer, but it's out of ink, and I need a cable for the laptop.

Speaking of my drawings...I have a print up on DeviantArt! ^^ Not like I'm pressuring anyone to buy it, I'm just happy I did something I'm wiling to sell to people. It's called "The Siren," and I only drew it... bugger...almost three years ago. But I colored it right before I put it up and I'm really happy about how it turned out. 

I meant to post for Halloween, but I had like 6 gazillion trick-or-treaters, and I were tired. I had a HUGE bowl of treats, and I still ran out before 8:30. Next year...keg. I'll go steal an oil drum, clean that puppy out, and use it for candies. And the kids were really polite, like I always was when I went...unless there was a creepy old guy involved. In that case, I took the candy and ran. Holly... I didn't get to go this year!! I was so sad... and I had a bitchin goth costume too. But the Air Force would prolly frown on a 23-year-old housewife without kids trick-or-treatin. Next year, I'll borrow someone's cute little kids. Or I'll drive to Casper specifically to go with you guys again. 

I think that's all for today. Except I'm a NERD, cuz I'm listening to the original SNES Zelda soundtrack...which is from, like, 1992 or something (A Link to the Past, and yes, it's from 1992). The nerd part is not only that I'm listening to video game music...it's also that I haven't played the game for...fuck...ten, twelve years? And I still remember what all the music goes to... *stands up in NA* Hi. My name is Kelsey, and I'm a nerd..."
