A Mutant Strain of Shinybloodyitis

A new strain of "lead fever" is being reported in several news outlets today.  Anne O'Leary, the outrageous  CEO of O'Leary Air is reported to have contracted the virus last week.  Upon hearing that the infection has spread to England, O'Leary called a Press Conference.


A drunken O'Leary staggered to the podium aided by her pet troll Guido and had this to say. "I was being treated for the normal case of shinybloodyitis, when the disease morphed into something new!" she yelled into the microphone.


After finishing her bottle of gin, she opened a bottle of wine and continued. "My doctors informed me there was only one way to get rid of this disease and that was to give away some free lead!"


Reporters from Gamer Geeks were aghast.


"Get me some Guinness!" O'Leary yelled. "This disease is highly infectious. And two gamers in England have been felled by it recently" slamming the now empty mug onto the podium she continued.  "Michael at 28mm Victorian Warfare is giving away books, painted lead and two command stands.  And Ian over at A Blog With No Name is giving away something new every day. Bloody hell, he's even giving away  £20 to spend on the lead of your choice"
 
 
After finishing her statement, O'Leary promptly passed out.
 
I've been having loads of fun with this and so have a lot of other people. So if you haven't entered in these two boys giveaways, you should do so promptly.
 
Well folks it's Thursday and where I'm at, the sun is making a much needed appearance. So if you're experiencing conditions like this where you are, get outside and make the most of it. I know I will.

    1. I'm just glad that I found a way to work this character into gaming as I love her. Now I have to find a way to bring back Cousin Margie. And I think I know how to do it.

    1. I just stuck the turkey in there because I wanted to cram as much weirdness into the panel as possible. Did you notice the monkey's swinging from the ceiling in the back of the room?

  9. You can give away lead fever on purpose? I thought it was spread like an STD. Oh, and since you made it clear yesterday that we must comment on everything you put in every post, yes, I saw the damn bunny in the this time.

  13. There does seem to be an overabundance of lead lately in the blogging world. We clearly have too much so it's good we're giving it away.

    1. It would take me two months to get those at this rate so I'm going to do the drawing over the weekend and the giveaway next week. This is wearing me out too. I'm used to posting only 4-6 times a month.

  18. Murphy's Law: A person who is generous with their lead and happily passes it forward, will reap the rich reward of increased blog popularity, and may even tilt the hit-counter.

    1. I'm doing it because recently I've won a lot of giveaways and I feel like it's time for me to give back. It really helped me to get items I wouldn't normally get and there's a whole spirit of fun that goes with it.

  23. Anne O'Leary has a problem with passing out.

    what would Mrs Brown say about that... I love that show! last night was the season Finale for season 3.... great fun. Then again Mrs Brown passed out in that episode as well, and twice in one before then, do some Irish women has a problem with passing out. like men in other countries has some bizarre problem with having to prove their manliness. come on if your a man you should not need to prove it... you should not have to.

    1. I love that show too. We downloaded all the seasons onto our computer. No, there's no problem common in Ireland with women passing out. I think they just use that as part of Mrs. Brown's character.

      No, I don't think men should have to prove their manliness by being aggressive and such. Nor do I think they should have to body build or be macho. A man who is comfortable with himself as he is, is the best kind of man.
