    Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    JFK is often blamed for this, as he allegedly went hatless at his inauguration, but the decline of hats was already well underway by then and he actually did wear a top hat through much of the inauguration festivities.

    I generally suck at chores. My parents would constantly fight over cleaning the house and threaten to throw out each other's junk piles. I like washing the dishes, though.

    I'm a fantastic event planner. With asthma.

    Glass can hold a monomolecular edge. Surgeons use obsidian scalpels for the most delicate surgeries and glass knives are used to slice samples for transmission electron microscopy.
  5. Saw Ocean's 8 last night. Better than 12, not quite as good as 13. It actually needed a few more monkeywrenches thrown into the plan so we could see them bust out their problem-solving skills some more.
  6. Saw a Double Feature of that and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. This pretty much sums up my opinion of the latter, except I didn't cry when [redacted] because it was painfully obvious that they were just laying it on thick as a cheap emotional ploy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dy7JkZ7m8wM

    Anything longer than a single DVD, so ~5 hours. I don't do a whole lot of baking. The last baked item I ate was probably pizza. The last item I baked was probably also pizza. I was going to bake a ham for making sandwiches from, but I bought a pre-cooked one instead.

    My college Sci-Fi Club had a tradition for movie/tv marathons called TUBs. Named partially for carrying VHS tapes in large tubs but also it was short for watching shows "'Til U Bleed".

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I just finished my order, bringing the total to $508.42. Not sure if I should be amused or horrified that my postage charges haven't gone up since I first locked-in the bulk of my pledge.

    My color scheme is largely based on my needs as an Earthdawn GM. Goblins - Don't exist, might repaint them as Scurriers. Exposed brains could be fun to paint. Hobgoblins - Make great Orks. Usually painted with olive tones (as in the color of Spanish Olives) Bugbears - repurposed as Magmabeasts, painted in bright red with messy black drybrushing Orcs - See Hobgoblins above Gnolls - Don't exist, might squint and call them Jackalmen Kobolds - Don't exist, might repaint them as Pangoli

    You could also go to the Bull and Finch, the inspiration for the Cheers Bar, which is a lovely place with an old timey "smoking lounge" feel without the tobacco and damned good food. I've occasionally had minis up for display, but not in my current house configuration. I've occasionally gifted painted minis and hope they're all still on display or otherwise treasured.

    May, when I opted out of the never-tested-for-safety full body scanners they use at the Airport. The plate: a reuben sandwich, dill pickle spear, and a small but tasty pile of chips or fries. The glass: Magner's hard cider
  15. Finally tried Shadowrun Crossfire. It was a lot of fun and I'm slowly getting over my fear of permanently modifying boardgames.
  16. I thought it was good but not great. I found the Deus-ex-Jack-Jack got a little tiresome and was disappointed that Dash would run around people punching them and not run around people and [redacted].

    My brother and I tried to build a rocket car out of a toy truck and a rocket engine. Fortunately the flamethrower we built was unable to ignite the rocket engine.

    I played Faulkland in a production of The Rivals. I was so unlikable the audience nearly refused to let us finish the play.

    It was a work of storytelling genius. I laughed, I cried, it was better than cats.

    My primary goal for the year is to seek comfort and aid when I need it and provide for others when they do. It's tough going, but I think I'm accomplishing my goal. Next step is to end the atrocities committed by ICE.

    I'd program it with some entertainment that was a mix of street racing, consensual sex, and ultraviolence.

    Pickle, maybe. Or War. Or Tag. I don't remember much from Nursery School, so it's hard to say.
