MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT: Lance Foxx says good-bye.
LAST UPDATE: "May 22, 2003"
Well, I stretched it out as long as I possibly could. Tonight is the last night that I'll have internet access for a while.
Here's the latest news I can give you. Burrwolf and I found an apartment that's really nice. It had everything we were looking for except for a garage. For some reason, apartments in San Diego are mainly carports only. Those that had garages were either horribly expensive or you had to be put on a waiting list for one. It has additional cool things, though, like that it's a second story apartment with a vaulted ceiling and it also has a fireplace! I'm happy. It's a one bedroom but that's all we need.
Job wise, I was able to transer to another Target that's close by and Burr's only a short drive from his work as well. So, even that worked out. The only problem is that I am further away from the city itself and I'm going to have to figure something out when I have to get downtown to do my Navy Reserve drill time. Oh, and a bit of news off to the side of that. I may head out to Japan for a couple of weeks for a Navy drill in late July, early August. Maybe. Don't know yet...
Now, here's what we had to give up. Number one, this house. We're really going to miss this place. If it wasn't for what happened, we'd still be living here. I'd still have internet access. I'd still be drawing and taking commissions. I'd be living in a central location here in town. I would have had no problems getting around.
We had to sell our boat, a really nice couch, an entertainment center, a washer and dryer, a cool fridge we bought, a dump load of PS2 games, a bike, and a certain futon that holds a bit of memories. The boat is the biggest loss. Burr picked that thing up real cheap from an auction and it was our intension to restore it, get it out on a lake, and have some fun with it. The boat was a decent sized cabin cruiser, a classic fiber glass Glassbar boat. It sat here at the house waiting for us and before we had a chance, we had to give up the deal of a life time. Sigh... maybe it'll happen again, but it's not likely, not a find like that for only $235.
Holding back on wanting to curse out the individuals responsible for us having to sacrifice so much of our life and causing us so much pain and grief, making us start over, what I will say is that we're now optimistic. This gives us a chance to finally have a place on our own. No more roommates. That was my decision. I didn't want to depend on others any more. We always seemed to get screwed on way or another. No more. Now, as it should be, if something goes wrong, it's all on us. No longer will we be dependant on anyone else. No one will screw us over any more.
Okay, so as I post this and load us the truck for the last time, here's what I have to look forward to. Privacy. For the first time in a LONG time, I'll finally have time to draw everything and anything I want to without worrying about accidently leaving it out for someone else to see. My mate knows of all my interest, so I'm not worried about Burrwolf seeing it, but I worried about others living here in the house. I usually draw the general furry and were artwork, but I've been drawing some of the more unusual stuff too, like the vore, and I just wasn't comfortable working on it much while I was here at the house. I was never alone. There was always someone here. Now, I'll finally be drawing a lot more and when I get back online, I'll finally be able to draw and chat at the same time, like I've always wanted to to.
I know what question is probably foremost in your mind right now. When will Lance Foxx be back online? The best I can figure is that it will be weeks. Possibly a few months, but no longer than that. I don't see me being offline past the summer. In fact, I want to say that it'll only be a few weeks, but we just have to wait and see how finances balance out after all this. We're having to start up new accounts, new bills, and there's new deposits to be made. There were a ton of expenses that have us sweating up coming bills right now, but I think we'll be able to make this work, just barely.
In the meantime, I can only offer two new things. One of them is not really new. I showed a lot of you guys this before but it's going to be the first time I'm making it available publically with a direct link. Did you see the Matrix Reloaded? I did and if you're still buzzing from a need to find cool matrix stuff, you're going to really love this original REMIX I did based off the first movie. Check it out. A lot of my friends were actually impressed and I'm really proud of how it turned out!
Also, for you vore fans out there, I recently posted an "Artist Challenge" recently on the Big Gulp message board. I challenged artists there to draw a picture based on a certain theme, that being two characters being eaten by a third. I wanted one to be comforting the only, as if one has gone through being eaten many times and the other is experiencing it for the first time. I wanted to see other artists take on this, showing a character take a friend through their first experience. I thought it was a cool idea and I did get a good number of artists to try to draw it, even some that weren't sure they'd participate or not. I'm sorry to say that I won't have anything of my own to post up. The scanner was packed and moved before I could scan my pic, but it'll be up when I get back, with a ton of other new artwork. You can be sure of that.
Anyways, before I stray too far from the topic, as promised before I went offline, here's a link to my "Artist Challenge" page.
I'm going to miss you guys. I'll be thinking of the cool chats we've had together, the fun RPs, and I'll be thinking of you guys while I'm offline, working on new artwork and other cool stuff. Wish me luck and before you know it, I'll be back. I always come back. Life can't keep me off line for long. Not even when I go to war! >;]
You can still write me, if you'd like. I cleared my e-mail box and saved all the e-mails I had in it. The only thing I ask is that if you have any attachments, please hold on to them until I get back. I want to save as much room as possible because I may not be able to check e-mails for weeks at a time. If I find myself anywhere near internet access, I'll be sure to be checking my e-mail when I can. I also saved all my information off my ICQ contact list, so chat sessions and contacts will not be lost when I install a newer version when I get back. I know, I know. I shouldn't lose any of that when I update my ICQ, but it still happened last time and I'm just making sure it doesn't happen again.
That's...uh, about it. So, until next update, I wish you guys well and thank you for all you've done for me. I really appreciate your support through all this and Burrwolf and I will make things work. It's just a temporary set back. We'll be back soon. Take care, everyone, and have some cool dreams.
A new dawn awaits.
