Sorry I've been so quiet of late. I think I've become a hermit well and true. Maybe it's the summer weather... although, there's not much to complain about cos it's been pretty nice around here for a South Floridian summer. It's still hot (hermit) and muggy (hermit) and we've been getting lots of rain (hermit, hermit, hermit), but it's not scorching.
Why do I get the feeling that you guys are laughing at me and reading "D3" instead of "hermit?" LOL!!!! I actually have been reading quite a bit too. Some new books, some re-reads. It's nice to just bum out on the couch and not do much. :)
On the subject of D3, hubby and I decided that his witch doctor and my monk-ette shouldn't have THAT much armor on. By the time, they're all decked out, they have armor, headgear, gloves, boots, shoulders, and bracers.
Toss in the possibility of shields, BIIIIG axes and swords, and the whole idea of an old-style fantasy-based RPG goes out the window. Monks, witch doctors, demon hunters, and wizards running and fighting while lugging all that weight around is quite laughable.
I mean, what monk fights with spikey, heavy shouders, metal gloves, and studded boots, right? Let me show you what I mean... She looks more like a warrior than a monk!
Granted, she looks pretty cool and kick-ass, but still. Are people to believe that she can dodge hits or weave into battle without getting one of those metal things snagged on a baddie's tooth??? ;) (And I absolutely, on matter of principle, will not use a shield.)
My friend, Heidi, said awhile back that monk-ette would make a cool cross stitch. I told her to get to charting it. ;)
So, after thinking about it for a few days, we decided to dye some of our toons' armor invisible. Now, don't you think she looks more like a monk? (Yes, I dyed her armor pink too, LOL!) And don't you love her sexy legs? I do! :D
Meanwhile, I was telling hubby last night, that maybe his witch doctor should have some clothes back on.... LOL!!!
If nothing else, I'll get to see all your lovely stitching and live vicariously through you and your needles. ;)
You know what to do!! :D
