  1. Aww.... But we just want to smother the world in adorable fluffy cuteness. What's wrong with that? Oh, and glitter. Because it's ten thousand shiny bits, and shiny is a glorious thing. I'm having a pretty okay day. Haven't accomplished much, but I did accidentally discover how to make my back feel better. I mildly strained it yesterday, then really made it mad by rolling over in bed last night. It just kept feeling worse, so in desperation I took a naproxen, made up a bed on the floor and slept flat on my back for the rest of the night. When I finally woke up, my lower back felt surprisingly great, though the rest of me is not especially pleased about having slept on the floor (my hips and shoulders in particular). I kept expecting something to go wrong and my back to freak out on me, but it totally hasn't happened. I can even touch my toes without difficulty. This tells me pretty definitively that yes, the super squishy mattress topper we have (which helps MrBoot sleep better) is not doing my back any favors. I plan to hack it in half tonight so we can both sleep well (since our mattress is fairly firm). Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  2. 1) After squinting at it for awhile, it looks like the effect is achieved through carefully placed, slightly irregular pale blue dots. I'd love to try and replicate it, it looks incredible! 2) No, no you are not. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  3. Oh I know it is, which is why I got it. My wrist is just getting grumpy at me holding this thing in place. It should theoretically be set by now, but I put it on a bit thick so I'll hold it a bit longer. I also discovered why the mirror never quite worked right after my dad fixed it. He'd used so much gorilla glue that a tiny corner of it got stuck in place so it only had limited movement. I had to chisel off a bunch of the stuff to make sure the epoxy had a nice stable surface to adhere to. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  4. I'm currently stuck holding our old Saturn's driver side mirror in place while the epoxy sets. The Gorilla glue my dad used to stick it back on (after an auto wash snapped it off) has finally gotten brittle enough to fail, 12 years later. If that's not a testament to the durability of the stuff, I dunno what is. Shoulda got the 5 minute set stuff, rather than the 15 minute. I tried usong duct tape to hold it in place while the epoxy set, but due to the angle it didn't really work. ...This is getting really boring. But at least I get the happy satisfied feeling I always get when I fix something on our cars or build stuff with tools. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  5. No, it will not, as per ReaperBryan: Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  6. Fulfilling

    Mine got postage as well! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  7. If 75 is "scorching" where you, I'm pretty sure you'd burst into flames over here. Right now it's a toasty 87 degrees, but after standing outside for the past few hours (in the shade), it felt more like low 90's. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  8. If MrBoot gets one of the two jobs that are looking the most promising for him right now, ReaperCon will be a go for this year! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  9. I want it on record that I plan to drag you to one of the We Be Goblin games, because the potential for Hilarious Shenanigans is just too great. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  10. Yeah, my mind is still pretty blown! Also, see the edit to my post. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  11. Yep! I looked at the prescription he gave me, and the 'near' pair is essentially the same as my normal pair, just with x1 magnification for each eye. The reason that basic reading glasses didn't work for me is because my eyes both focus differently, and my right eye is much worse than my left. So while they did make everything closer, they were still not clear unless I squinted. EDIT: I would HIGHLY recommend bringing a painted mini and paintbrush with you to demonstrate. Last visit, I described what I did when I painted minis, and was recommended basic reading glasses since I don't think he quite understood the scale I was working at. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  12. If he'd had more of a response than "lay there" it would probably have been more exciting to random spectators. Warnings have all been canceled, apparently the storm moved through so fast it didn't have time to do too much. I watched it on radar for a bit, it was going pretty quick. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  13. Probably the same one that's throwing a tantrum over us right now. Extreme thunderstorm and flash flood warnings for our whole area, even got an emergency broadcast warning on our cell phones (which rather startled both of us). We've taken the usual 'severe thunderstorm' precautions of turning off and unplugging important electronics and making sure our phones have decent charge. I've been using the time to fold laundry, and amusing myself by stacking clothes on MrBoot (who is dozing on the couch next to me) as I fold them. It's the little things in life. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  14. The AC in our apartment is set to 78 Fahrenheit (25.5 Celsius).... Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  15. Been a pretty good day so far. I had my optometrist appt, and got to wow him with one of my painted minis (I brought one plus a paintbrush to demonstrate what focal strength I needed), and his reaction was priceless. He was all "Wow, you actually paint such tiny things?!" He also immediately saw why both my current prescription and generic reading glasses don't work so good for me for painting. So he had me hold the mini like I was painting it and tried a few different lenses over the top of my existing ones, and found a good match pretty quickly. Huzzah, no more eye strain!! Then I stopped by the food area (I go to Costco optical) for a polish dog and ice cream since they're super yummy and crazy cheap, and happened to run into an acquaintance there. We talked about clothes and Disneyland and how stupidly hot it is outside. Next I was finally able to pick up my new inhaler prescription (the one I've been carrying around is... *checks* ...2 years out of date ), so my lungs will be less likely to spontaneously kill me now. And now I'm back in my air conditioned apartment, where I get to hang out with you crazy people, and there's yummy leftover shepherd's pie in the fridge for dinner tonight. So yeah, good day so far. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
