Things I am obsessed with right now

So I go through phases of intensely stalking people, places and things. I don't have a witty excuse for this, I just really love the internet and have too much time on my hands. Since I have started promoting WITCH my fanatical stalking has taken what some may call a "backseat"... however, I like to think of it as being boiled down, intensified, and focused onto things that are only truly awesome.

Therefore, today I'd like to share with you -the people (and thing) I am currently stalking obsessed with:

I wanna say Amy Poehler, cause she is hilarious, but really I just love Leslie Knope. If Shanna (below) is my real life idol, Leslie is my fictional idol. She embodies everything that has awesome in the world, and while this may also be due to a slight high I have from Netflixing all episodes of Parks & Rec. within the space of one month, Leslie is a magical unicorn made out of candy and dreams. She even inspired to make a very awkward wall of inspirational woman on my study wall that comprises of: her, Shanna Germain, Felicia Day, Tina Turner, Hedy Lamarr, my aunt Gwen (the artist, school head, everything good in the world), my aunt Jenny (amazing art curator), my aunt Rose (my craft guru and fiber soulmate), and my mom (who amongst a lot of other awesome things the woman who survived my teenage years).



2) Shanna Germain

Haven't heard of her? She's only the Managing editor of the Numenera rpg and an awesome erotica writer!!!  So basically, she is my idol. She is also the newest inductee to my wall of inspirational women (adding her prompted this blog post). Also, her blogs are beautiful and fun to read. Generally, I kinda hate reading about people's live, even famous people, cause it's just boring. But she makes her life blog interesting and uses pretty words and sentences like, "This is darkly messy and bleeding, like when you dye your hair black and it stains the back of your neck and rubs off on your sweater and sheets and lover for weeks." She also owns a friggen adorable dog (which I might be more obsessed with than her), so in the horrible narrative that is my fantasy I can imagine we walk our dogs together and geek out about role play. So let's end with this:

3) Karise Eden
I don't need to write anything about her, her voice is perfect, she is perfect. Watch this and I dare you not to cry:



4) Tormore Scotch Whiskey
So I bought this whiskey without thinking. I needed a good one for my birthday party and the sucker was on sale. One liter for 35euros? Don't mind if I do. Since the bottle wasn't finished at the party, I have started to finish it off myself. Delicious, smooth, hello alcoholism! Also, the distillery for this whiskey is adorable an makes me want to take a Ron Swanson trip there and cry on a hill while reading poetry.


Are you currently stalking anything in the non-police intervention type of way? Let me know!

  1. Amy and Tina need their own show. Too bad both have shows that don't get the rating they deserve

Beholder Pattern

Here is the patterns for Paul, the Albino Beholder. You can of course, make him a normal ruddy beholder colour if you want (it is your amigurumi :D), but I simp[ly thought the world didn’t have enough happy-go-lucky cute things ;). Also, if you find the 10 eye-stalks too much you can also put less on. (I won’t even get into an intense nerd-debate with you about hoe a beholder actually does need all 10 eyestalks in order to be awesomely magical.)

Beholder

Materials= I colour of yarn, 1 safety eye, 10 black beads (see below), yarn needle, thread for sewing a mouth

Hook = ((2.5mm)) I am not putting a 'strict' hook size here, because you can basically do this pattern with any size hook & any size yarn. The larger the yarn/hook, the larger your beholder will be. However! This is very important make sure to guage your thread around the black beads that you buy for the eye stalks. My pattern calls for a CH6 around the eye beads and you should check this before you start. If y…

Gametail: The Swords & Wizardry

I need a drink, but not any type of drink I need a cocktail! But not any kind of cocktail, I need a cocktail based off an awesome game - a gametail :D.

Earlier this week +Stacy Dellorfano posted the cover of the new Swords & Wizardry, which should be Kickstarting soon. I am super excited, because I wrote an adventure for it! And if I do say so myself, it is metal as f*!#. Stacy asked me to make an adventure bridging a story game and an OSR game. I might cover that in another blog post, but let's get on to drinking!

Take a look and the /amazing/ new cover for S&W by Kaos Nest. I used it as the inspiration for the cocktail.


Now look at this beauty. Black and pink, the perfect combination for my gametail - the Swords & Wizardy!
