Owen & Ophidius drawing, plants and orders  
I was rather angry yesterday because they removed Leeanix on my Sims 3 profile without even telling me why. Perhaps it was because she had custom hair. But so does Ellie Sattler and she hasn't been removed. So I just reuploaded her. Screw them. I don't really care. I'm still pissed my studio is not visible for some reason, but I have gotten around that by listing everything there on a post here. So if anyone wants to download my sims or houses they can use that link that goes directly to the individuals instead of the gallery. I don't think they're going to fix it because they're too busy with sims 4 now. I haven't felt like playing actually but I booted up the game last night when I found this out just so I could put her back.

It's been so cold the last few days. It really sucks. We've had a few mornings that were 32. That's freezing. The little time that Chris has been here he's been great helping around the yard. He's excited about getting the fence panels and helping me install them. I want to start with the small fence on the pumpkin patch side of the house. The garage is more cleared now too so I can probably start working on building stuff. But with this darn cold I just don't want to go in there. Perhaps I can put the heaters in there for a bit because time's ticking and I need that new cook finished before the new babies arrive. The old coop is no good. I permanently closed it off and the chickens have been sharing with the pigeons which has worked out pretty well.

Ok I have some new art.

Click for full size.
“I’d rather be alone than be around you.” Owen said.
“But we’d have so much fun together. You’ve got to give me a chance. We need each other. Thagirion wants you dead and you can’t stop him. I want Thagirion dead and I can protect you and help you fight him. I can show you how to control your powers.” Ophidius said happily as he thought of all the possibilities.
“Do you have the ability to take my powers away without killing me?” Owen asked crossing his arm. Ophidius lifted his finger and opened his mouth happily then paused.
“Uh…no.” He said sadly.
“Then you’re worthless. If you don’t leave I will do to you what I did to your friend.”
Ophidius looked a little confused after hearing that, but quickly recovered and continued.
“You don’t know what kind of powers I have. You don’t know what I really am and what I am capable of. You’re so lucky to have someone like me. Let me show you it’s really cool.” He said happily.
“If you ever take your demon form around me I will kill you.” Owen threatened. Thinking he’d made his point Owen walked away.

Ophidius shrugged and began to follow Owen as he went up the side walk to his front door. Owen stopped and looked down at the shorter man with his fiery aqua eyes.
“DO. NOT. FOLLOW. ME. INSIDE.” He said as he forcefully poked Ophidius in the chest with his index finger after every word.
“Ow.” Ophidius said hurt as he rubbed his chest. But he fell in behind Owen anyway. “Aw, come on. You’ll love me. I want to see your house. What kind of TV do you have? I bet you have all kinds of neat…”
As soon as Owen got to the two steps leading to the entrance he stopped and whirled around. It was extremely fast. Faster than Ophidius could have anticipated. Owen Marsh reached for his sword, unsheathed the clear blue metal blade and with lightning fast speed thrust it into Ophidius’s chest single handed. Ophidius’s arms went out to his sides from the power and force of the blow. The long blade exited cleanly out his back in streams of blood that poured down his nice clean suit. Owen had pushed it completely in, all the way to the hilt. It rested against Slith’s chest. The look on Ophidius’s face was one of pain, shock and surprise. His feelings were hurt more than anything as he had not expected Dr. Marsh to do something like this to him.
“Oh, you were…serious…” He said weakly.

I hope you guys enjoyed that little excerpt. I left out the beginning and you wouldn't believe how he was pestering Owen. Ophidius really asked for it this time. He deserved to get stabbed. I'm hoping to do part 2 next which is from Owen's point of view and you see Ophidius saying that line, "Oh you were serious." while still impaled on the sword. I love Owen's house. I want a house like that.

Here's the tank with the Aristolochia and passiflora set up.

I can't wait til it's warm enough to put these all outside. I want to have a nice lush yard with lovely rare weird plants.

I ordered a little model of a fat boy motorcycle. This will help me with my art. I have lots of references especially of normal view; front, side and back. But of course I need some other poses for my comic and I can never find exactly what I need in photos. So with a model I can pose it anyway I want and draw that. I also ordered a bunch of jacks for Bullet. She likes to play with them and throw them. She has like 5. One broke. So I want to have a bunch that she can play with and keep a count so I know what to put back in her toy box at the end of the day. I will also be ordering some Sorry pieces that are also throw and carry toys. Yes it will be a lot of work for me picking up her toys all the time but I'm glad she'll have something to do and be happy. I do want to get her an updated play gym too. I saw one at an online store and will save up to get it later.

But this Monday is a stupid holiday. Martin Luther King Day should only be observed. I hate that it will close banks and the mail. Some of my orders are in. They are sitting in Tampa right now. But I won't get them til Tuesday. That's annoying. Seems there's always some stupid holiday when I need to order something. The only holidays that should stop mail and banks should be 4th of July and Christmas. Easter doesn't count because it's always on a Sunday. Though schools should get every holiday there is. Even non official ones like Speak Like A Pirate Day. I was always thrilled when there was no school.

Ok I think that's all for now.
Current Mood: coldcold

I'm so sick of this cold weather. One effect of the thyroid thing is that I am cold ALL THE TIME. I want mid-70's, and I want it now.

I don't know who to root for in that picture. I like Ophidius better than Owen, but not by much.

I think Thanksgiving rates a bank holiday too along with Christmas and The 4th of July. I could rant a long time about MLK day, but right now I can't find the words to do it.

Yeah my back hurts today because of it. I agree.
Well Ophidius was wrong and asked for it. He was told to stop and go away several times.
Yeah maybe Thanksgiving too then.

Whoa, I saw Owen at the top of the picture, then as I scrolled down got s shock! I can see that Ophidius was very annoying, though. What happens to Ophidius? Does he regenerate or something? This is all a bit too shocking for my brain.

That's a good idea to get a model of that motorcycle. A model always helps artists. I knew of one artist who made a model of everything he painted. (I think he was painting fantasy figures for a kid's book).

Having it cold like that sucks. I feel for you. It is the opposite here right now! 32C in the office and 35+C outside. This has been the coolest place in the house up until now. It will be cooler in the living room shortly.
Des: Ophidius Sadthagirion on January 20th, 2014 01:36 pm (UTC)
This kind of thing happens all the time. Remember all my characters are bad guys. Yes Ophidius was being a jerk and asked for it. You'll see what happens.

I should get it tomorrow. Can't wait. Looking forward to it.

Yeah and it doesn't seem to be letting up. The forecast shows more cold nights. Not good.

That's dumb about the Sims. Why would they remove her? I've downloaded really corrupted characters off there and ones with custom not-included stuff like poor corrupted Zane with that awful horse body whenever he was naked.
I find cold weather really pointless. It only serves to make people cold and kill off plants. Animals even hibernate to avoid it.
Hehe Owen looks like a Sim in that pic because of the position of the light behind him. That was the first thing I noticed about it.
Weird plants are the best :D

Well at least you guys don't have bank holidays like we do. We have about three around Easter, one in May and one in August. Then we have Boxing Day as well. Bank holidays, no mail and the banks are closed.

I don't know and I'm annoyed my gallery is locked down, but you can still get to them if you have the links. I didn't get an email or a warning or anything. Same for when they deleted Leeanix. They didn't tell me why. She was just gone. At least she's still there. Yeah I have seen much worse stuff go up too than just custom hair. Remember it took me forever to fix Ursula.
Yeah the cold sucks for everything.
That's two people that told me that now. There are lamps shaped like that but I may have to recolor it to be clear glass. That might help.

That sucks. No we don't need more holidays that close down banks and mail. Just checked my tracking. All my packages are in Tampa. That means I would have gotten them today. Now it will be Tuesday.

Oh btw, if you ever get a chance would you read this chapter?

I hope to post the next one soon.
