Thanks for half a million hits or 500,000 views and.......

....the 1200+ followers, this blog is one of the few things that gets me through these days and also I'm a secret paint brush licker!!

Me and Ray are now on our 30 day redundancy notice but still haven't a finish date yet???

Lurker: Stop it!
Ray: What?
Lurker: You threw a date at me!
Ray: Did not!
Lurker: Did too, you have a bag of nuts and fruit open in front of you and you know I don't like dates!
Ray: I know that's why I threw it!
Lurker: Ha Ha! I knew it!
Ray: What are you blogging?
Lurker: Just thanking people for the milestone.
Ray: That's pathetic!
Lurker: You're pathetic!
Ray: Am not!
Lurker: Are too!

See what I have to put up with!



These are called hundreds and thousands or sprinkles in some other places (maybe not 500,000 at my last count) but I digress....last night while painting some figures I always keep the shape on my paintbrushes by inserting the tip in my mouth after dipping it in the water to clean it, I don't know if this common among figure painters but anyway last night I did this to a freshly bladed scalpel that I thought was a paintbrush.......I was lucky that in went in on the flat side and only shaved the what I believe are hairs on my tongue.....I took the scalpel back out slowly and looked at it for a good ten seconds, looked at Ray and put it down, fiddled with my tongue looking for issues but luckily there were none........

.........I'm getting old but the main thing is thanks to all the commenter's, readers and those people who visit by mistake!

THANKS!!

  7. Congratulations for the great achievement. Or achievements. Or boobs. I'm a bit confused about who I should congratulate at the moment. Now I'm back to my sprinkle-counting.

  14. congrats on the half-million page tits, errrm hits. Damn you for posting that photo and making me slip up like that! :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Congrats on those milestones Ray. They're called sprinkles here. Oh and while I think that putting the tip of a brush in your mouth is common practice, I can't say the same for scalpels.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Congratulations on making the big one(s)! Also well done on not coming a cropper with that scalpel too! It reminds me of the tale of my Uncle who worked in a print shop and was using a scalpel to cut paper. He was in too much of a hurry as he needed the loo and he dropped the scalpel which fell into the top of his thigh and stuck out like an Apache's arrow. Priorities being priorities he ran off to the loo first with said scalpel waving like a flag pole in the wind!

    Ps. What's the picture going to be when you get a million views? (that could be today with that picture up there!) :-D

    ReplyDelete
  17. I have saved that pic and am now going away to have a nice relaxing 'join-the-dots' session.

    Congrats on the milestone mate :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Woot woot!!! And you sound happy today-goody!! I put my brushes in my mouth too, but I never keep a scalpel without a lid on it and I never keep a scalpel anywhere near my brushes. You silly man, what are we going to do with you?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Nice one Fran! Always love the boobies!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. "See what I have to put up with!"
    Is that Ray's chest...??? In that case I don't understand your whining, and I suddenly understand that scalpel in mouth thingie...
    Concratulations man, you're well worth it.
    And redundacies suck, but there is a life after. Was for me at least.
    Cheers

  23. I was supposed to congratulate you for the 500 000 hits... well, I think that's the same as congratulations on our birthday. So, congrats on that.

    BUT... having 1200 followers!! That's really meaningful! It's people like... me, that look up to you for guidance (not on that brush licking thing, though). You can be proud of that! :D

    Cheers.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Congratulations Fran!

    I've never sucked on a scalpel and I do 'mouth point' my brushes... I also often dip brushes in my tea, which is usually right next to the water jar.

    1. I just noticed the redundancy thing. Normally at the end of the 30 day period you will finish on that day and then they'll pay you your notice.

      Thats what happened to me a few years back its worth confirming what will happen at the end of the 30 days.

    2. Got my second one to one meeting on Wednesday.

  32. Well done; quite the accomplishment. Good thing you didn't cut your tongue, you'll need it to properly count the sprinkles.

  36. we visit your site and you give us boobs covered in sprinkles. I love that trade off.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Your best post yet Fran. Without a doubt.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Congrats Fran! I have a habit of licking my brush as well to keep it shape. Never a scalpel, but I have dipped my brush in my tea a few times now. Oh, if you happen to need someone to verify that number of sprinkles I count pretty well.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Blimey, impressive numbers for any blog! Congratulations!

    Scary tale of the scalpel swallowing. We're not allowed near any sharp objects without supervision and certainly not without medication, so it'll never happen to any of us . . . but Billy keeps telling me to stab the nurse . . .

    ReplyDelete
  40. Congrats Fran! You (and Ray :-/) make the gaming blogosphere a much more enjoyable place. :o)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I came here to tell you something but dammit, I can't stop thinking of sprinkles! Oh, yea, congrats on your 500,000th sprinkle, you lucky devil.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ooo ooo! I LOVE sprinkles!!! Kinda makes you wanna... brush a few off.

    Great picture, great blog and big congrats Fran on your 'alf a mill hits! Fantastic milestone achievement. Sorry to hear about the redundancy - it sucks hairy ones BUT one door closes, another will open!

    And for Gawdsake keep Ray away from the sprinkles, you know what he's like on too much sugar!

  50. Well done Fran. Shame about the 30 Day notice, but working with Ray, maybe you should train as a Mental Health Nurse!! Feel Free to slap Ray if ne mentions you and Nurses uniforms in the same sentance!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Congrats on the milestone Fran. Nice hundreds and thousands also. I live in fear of stabbing myself in the eye with my scalpel, so I'd be the last to poke fun at you for licking one. How about you and Ray set up a shop together?

  53. Grats, Fran! Good luck with the redundancy thing, been dealing with that, myself, since May 2007. Never cut my tongue with a hobby knife, but I did clean my brush in a glass of milk.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Well done Matey. I'll raise a glass to thee this afternoon whilst watching the 1st XV thrash the Welsh!

  55. Your blog gives so much pleasure to so many that I'm not at all surprised it is so popular. Many congratulations, Fran. I love the picture but can you post one after she's had the hundreds and thousands removed. God, I'd love to lick them off!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Congratulations Fran, well deserved!

  59. I, too, use my tongue to form the bristles into a point. People think I'm weird. There are at least two of us!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Congrats on the 500K, very impressive. I'm glad your tongue came away unscathed, I do not lick my brushes. I'm more of a stab myself with unsafe cutting practices kind of guy. Hope you and Ray can move seamlessly into the next job opportunity, and that it will afford you the time to keep up with all the hobby stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Well done Francis. A great milestone. I love the picture - might suggest this to Mrs B tonight so I can lick them all off!

  72. Hi Fran,

    congratulations! 500,000 hits is bloody awesome. However it proves that there are a lot of people who are enjoying your blog as much as I do. It's always a pleasure to come here or read your comments on my blog.

    So sorry to hear about the redundancy! Hope you have something lined up?

    ReplyDelete
  74. I line up with the others and say Congrats! Well deserved dude.
    I'm also always licking my brushes. Meh I guess my mom can be glad I'm at least not licking toads.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Well done that man - just when I thought this blog couldn't get any better - boobs and sweets!

    I'm a fellow brush licker (doesn't everyone?) but not a good idea when you're using turps as a cleaner - it doesn't taste very nice.

    Regards,
    Matt
