Just wanted to pop in and say hello.  Been a busy month or so.  My brother had surgery today to remove some bladder stones.  He is doing great and feeling much better.  He’ll be back home hopefully tomorrow.

I’m still working which is awesome.  I still love the job and the people are great.  Feels like I waited my whole life to get the perfect job. LOL

Between work and my brother, I haven’t had much time to do art but I haven’t given up on it.  Just not much time to do it lately.

Has Len been behaving himself?  Somehow I doubt it.  LOL Just kidding Impertinent Spore!!

I see David and Horo have been busy with Bryce stuff.  You guys rock!

Anyways, I’ll pop in once in awhile to say Hi.  Hope all is well with everyone.

Later!!

EDIT to add:  I just noticed the Avatars are back.  Cool!

Michele!!!


Yes, good news on the forum but the small font and atrociously bad misrepresenting smileys are still here, so I’m crossing my fingers they’ll bring the old font and smileys back.  They’re so bad it’s annoying because these ones don’t seem to represent any emotion as accurately as the old ones did - they’re pathetic.  I mean look at the basic ‘smile’ smiley for example, it looks dumb, like you’re trying to represent you’ve done something silly.


I really hope they upload the original smileys otherwise I’m relegated to not using smileys.  And actually, to give you an idea of just how bad the current smileys really are ...

:-)

...that represents a smile better than the actual ‘smile’ smiley they have on DAZ right now - that’s how bad they are.


Anyway, nice to see you back, and good to hear you haven’t brought your new workplace to bankruptcy.  I also hope you’ve been behaving and have not been doing stuff with the boss.  Don’t think that just because there is no Peasant Girl thread that you can do as you like, because you can’t.  God, I can’t even post those hump smileys anymore because this forum wont let us embed images into the body of the text.

I just realised I lost my manners when I replied so I must indeed be an Impertinent Spore.
I’m glad to hear your brother is doing OK, Michele :-)

You can punish me for forgetting if you want :-P


Yours truly,
- Impertinent Spore

You know us, always tinkering around in Bryce seeing what we can break next.

Glad you’ve found your way back to the forums Michele - indeed you’ve timed your arrival nicely since they have sort of just started working again - sort of…  mostly…  a bit…

@Michele - and isn’t it comforting to see that we all have lost our post count as you did just around the end of the old forums because of that mishap? We all started at 0.

Hey everyone!!

Just wanted to share some good news.  A few folks know about my brother who had a heart attack last year.  Since then he’s had a whole bunch of odd symptoms and it appeared he wasn’t recovering from the heart attack.  Well today the specialist he saw may have figured out what is wrong with him.  He has a benign tumor on one of his adrenal glands.  They are going to do one more test to make sure that this tumor is causing the problems but the doctor seems fairly certain it’s the cause.  If so, they will yank out the tumor and the adrenal gland and that should be the end of all his troubles.  I can’t tell you what a relief it was to hear this.  It’s been the year from hell since his heart attack last year.  Over a year actually but anyways…...

This whole last year has been dedicated to helping my brother so I haven’t had much time for anything else, except working.  Maybe when this is over I can really get back into 3D.  I’ve been buying a few models here and there but not really rendering because I’ve been so anxious about my brother.

Anyways, just wanted to pop in and say Hi and give an update.  Keep your fingers crossed for my brother!!

Thanks.
Michele

Good to see you here again, Michele. Fingers crossed that removing that tumor will sort things out for good.

I can imagine one thing worse than being ill would be being ill and not knowing what the problem was, so this is great news, Michele, I’m pleased to hear it and hope it works out for him, well, for both of you :-)

It is also nice to see you again, I even took my picture down recently because I thought all my Peasant Girls had left me.  It’s got really boring since they ruined the smileys, I can’t even use the :hump: smiley anymore, so all my Peasant Girls have lost interest in me now since I can no longer effectively portray the love I have for them.

:hump:

You know we luv ya Len, impertinent spore!  You will always be my Peasant Master.  grin

Thanks for the replies everyone.  My poor brother has been through hell this last year.  He’s the kind of guys that needs to understand things so he can work out how to handle them.  This not knowing was absolutely driving him nuts.  All he knew was that SOMETHING was wrong. 

Anyways, thanks for the support.  It seems you guys are the ones I keep returning to.  You’re the best!!

Michele
