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'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..."

So...nothing terribly interesting in the personal life... I'm going to kickie my kitty if he doesn't stop getting into things he bloody well knows he's not supposed to, but that's nothing new.


Before I go into my whole WTF?! speech, for anyone who doesn't know, I was born in Denver and have been a fan of the Colorado Rockies since they were the Colorado Bears, which was...bugger I feel old...more than 15 years ago. That being said, It's not "What the hell?" like they shouldn't be here, it's "What the HELL?!" how did it happen. That being clarified, I will continue. :D

What the HELL are the Colorado Rockies doing in the World FUCKING Series?! I had this thought at 6 this morning, and I was just floored. First of all, this is a team that has had six straight losing seasons, and the one right before that was just barely winning. And now? They ended the season with the second best record in the National League...right behind the Arizona Diamondbacks, who they just swept for the NLCS. For those of you unfamiliar with baseball: to win the League Championship and go on to the World Series (yes, before anyone heckles me, I am aware that it's not really "World;" let me finish), you have to win four of seven games. The Rockies won four straight, and on October 24, they will go to either Boston or Cleveland in their first-ever World Series.

Okay, so they're not the Cubs (who the Diamondbacks beat earlier). It hasn't been 100 years, only 15. But fifteen years is about the size of a major league career, and Todd Helton has been with this team for ten of those, joining right after the Rocks got splattered by the Atlanta Braves in the division series. There was some talk of trading him to the Red Sox during the offseason, but everyone stuck it through. Now, granted, the Red Sox may very well make the World Series as well, but it's not the same as being with a team that you've stuck by for ten years and watched same come from being tied in last place to going to the championship effing game. In a MONTH. So, just wanted to share the awesometacular news. ^^ Go Rockies!
