This week, I was strong armed into getting a new Hamster, I was quite upset after Sweep killed my last hamster Tyrannosaurus Rex that I didn’t want to get one. But my thinking that our rabbit Gandalf deserved a companion, had the girls in a panic, I had already picked out the rabbit and was going to call him Angron, Eater of Cables.

Anyway so on Wednesday I was dragged to Pets at Home where we picked up a lovely little Syrian who I have named Lorgar, Bearer of the Word. She is a rather nice little one, with very little fear of us and she is partial to apple and cuddles.

On Saturday it was the 10th annual Record Store Day so me and Lindsay popped into town to see if we could pick up a few of the new releases. We had a list of what we wanted and we got all but one of them. Lindsay picked up Laura Marling Live at York Minster, the Moana Picture Disk and Barbie Girl by Aqua. I got the Porcelain Remixes by Moby. We really wanted Your Love Alone is Not Enough by the Nanic Street Preachers, but that was sold out by the time we got to the three record shops in Newcastke city centre. Windows nicely put in a band to entertain us whilst we were in the queue which was great, Reflex had no entertainment and their queue was much longer, but they had staff checking that what you wanted was still in stock, so that way you knew it wasn’t a waste of time to be in that queue.

What I am Modelling

All I have done this week is build Varag Ghoul-Chewer, I haven’t otherwise picked up a paintbrush or tool at all.

What I am Reading

Again I haven’t read too much at all this week, just a little bit more of On Basilisk Station.

What I am Playing

I was supposed to play Arran at club on Tuesday but at the last minute something came up for him and I was unable to arrange another game in time, so I didn’t go to club.

I did get a game of Carcassonne Hunters and Gatherers in with Lindsay today which was nice, I won by a small margin, my tactic of getting small amounts of points from small rivers really paid off for me.

What I am Backing

Still backing Gloomhaven, that’s got a little over a week left to go.

I have also pledged for a book called An Atlas to Time, Space, and Bonfires which is a Sci-Fi anthology of 21 original stories. It looks interesting but I am going to do a bit more research into the creators, I worry still with sci-fi still, I don’t want to end up backing projects favoured by the puppies.

What I am Spending

I have spent most money this week on food and takeaways, it’s been a very very lazy week and I have been feeling very under the weather, so I have ended up having pizza, fish and chips, Burger King, Shawarma and parmos!

I have also bought a Citadel Skirmish Case, I needed a small case to transport my Dropfleet Commander Models to the tournament at the UK Games Expo and this case will be perfect for that. I have ordered it from Battle Bunker so it was 30% off RRP which was brilliant really.
