  1. Welcome to the Department of Acquisitions! This is a continuation of the thread wherein we share pictures and stories of all the awesome stuff we acquire. Go forth, and leave no bargain unexplored! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  2. Here is the link to the official thread, which has the actual Hangout link: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69040-hang-out-and-paint-google-hangouts/ This is a just-for-fun thread, a place to put little snippets from Google Hangouts with forum members so that those who can't participate can still enjoy some of the fun. They need not make sense, but they DO still need to be family-friendly! This is also the place to put "Is anybody on right now?" type posts. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  3. Yes, I am, actually. Yes, though you wouldn't live long enough to collect it. Sounds like a great legitimate bizness setup, actually. Super speed, since I have trouble putting things off, and being on time for things. It's functionally a combination of teleportation and the ability to stop time,so it's like two for one. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  4. I've really enjoyed reading all of the Ask Me Anything threads and getting to know people better, so I finally decided to start one of my own. Feel free to ask me about anything: my likes, dislikes, past, present, future, family, footwear, etc. A silly question will likely receive a silly answer, and I reserve the right to respond to any question with cute cat pictures. Because if there's one thing this forum needs, it's more cute cat pictures. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  5. ReaperCon 2017 pictures

    Post your pictures here! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  6. One of each is plenty. Even Ma'al Drakar didn't use up a full bottle of paint, and I used Dragon Gold on a substantial portion of him. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  7. Google Hangouts Chatter thread

    Google, from time to time, will also randomly decide it doesn't like someone and drop them. It's happened to me on several occasions, usually when I'm using my phone. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  8. True, you were the one who introduced me to a great song. I don't plan to go looking for more Iron Maiden songs, though, so I don't know that 'led' is quite correct. I don't know what that is, so no. But since you're the one asking, I'm going to assume it's something dirty. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  9. Well, asking an awesome Canadian dude I've never met before to paint a shiny smiley face on his thumbnail is pretty out there. I arbitrarily decided that penance posts are exempt from the question rule. Otherwise there'd be penance post-ception all over the place and it would get messy. He's helping to amuse me, so I suppose my answer is yes, I think he isn't not helping. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  10. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    The more places I've worked, the more I've realized that every occupation has them, though some more than others. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  11. Well, given that I'm generally some level of sleep deprived, it's happened in many places, very few of them appropriate. I very rarely fall truly asleep in public places, but zoned out or a light doze where I'm still peripherally aware of my environment is not uncommon. So I guess my answer is E) all of the above. Sushi, potstickers, curry, gyros, pulled pork sandwiches, lasagna, and birthday cake. Only some of my suggestions are serious, but I'll leave you to figure out which. Those all sound delicious, but alas, a question is lacking. Post a picture of your favorite submarine! Tacos are a great party food since everyone can customize their own. Lamb is delicious when done well, but I've never cooked it before. Deviled eggs are AMAZING, and ribs are too but again not something I've cooked before. Both frequently and not often. I usually have a bazillion tabs open, so I frequently have to hunt for the right one, but I rarely post in the wrong thread. Er, yeah, that one's a bit much for me. Too much profanity and screaming. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  12. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Bob, because he was making Carl look bad? I'm feeling much better, which is good because I have lots to get done today! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  13. Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    My dad proposed to my mom on April Fool's day. She flippantly agreed, then found out he was serious. And still agreed to marry him. Granted, it wouldn't be out of character for him to do such a thing with his sense of humor, but in this case he legitimately lost track of what day it was. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  14. That is my favorite too, only partly because I like Mr. Darcy in that version better. I have friends who continue to insist that 6 hour BBC mini series is the one true version, but I saw the other first and in general it appeals to me more. I recommend the use of the reaction emoticon to express your mixed feelings. Yes, but I'll get back to you on that when I'm not on my phone. I think at this point he's just doing it to tease me, so I'm going to see what he'll do if I simply don't acknowledge his continual breeching of da roolz. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  15. If you could sum yourself up using only one song, what would it be? Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  16. So I was curious and looked it up, and I actually really enjoyed it! Awesome instrumentals, good lyrics, nice vocals I could understand, and zero screaming. 10/10 would totally rock out to on Guitar Hero. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  17. Probably because you figured it would be a little too much metal for me. Dragonforce is about as hard as I generally go, though I do enjoy some softer metal songs, where there's lots of awesome guitar shredding and a minimum of screaming. I do like a good action-adventure movie, but with a bit of thinky stuff in it too so there's something to talk over afterwards. Nearly all of the superhero movies lately have been good examples of this. Least is probably horror, but that's mostly because I'm not big into gobs of blood and gore and cheap jump scares. A good psychological horror film, though, is something altogether different. I found 'The Sixth Sense' to be thoroughly enjoyable, for example. I originally put romance, but then remembered how much I love Pride and Prejudice. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  18. I was not, but I'm not surprised; that's a song that fits Nightwish's sound quite well. I was enjoying it up until the Phantom started singing, then I had to stop it. To me, the Phantom has a rich, smooth, powerful voice, slightly haunting. That guy just sounded harsh and angry. For comparison, here's the version I grew up with and listened to obsessively. All other versions will be compared to this one in my head: Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  19. Adorable puppies are also acceptable. That's a tie between Phantom of the Opera (the original Broadway version, not the sad movie version) and Toccata and Fugue in D minor by Bach. Pretty much if there's rich dark organ music in it, or else chime-y bits, I love it. Toccata and Fugue played on a glass harp transfixes me every time I hear it for the sheer wonder and beauty of it: Or did you mean like movie score? Whenever I hear score I think sheet music and classical stuff, lol. <--is a total band geek Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  20. Now I'm picturing a gathering of everybody's internal editors. They'd all be arguing and super pedantic about everything and it would be hilarious. Oh gosh, there's so many! My go-to answer is usually "Take on me" by a-ha, ever since I learned it was the #1 Billboard hit the day I was born, plus it has one of the coolest music videos I've ever seen. Seriously, everyone should check it out: Aaaand I just got distracted watching it again. It's so good! Eeeeeeeee I love your adorable kitties, they're so cute!! I like flavored waters a lot, especially since plain water is so booooring. I'm not a huge fan of ones that are carbonated, though. Vitamin Water is my favorite. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  21. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    I like the first one better; the fact that both phrases are two syllables each makes it pleasing to the ear. Ah, except my species of brain weasel does an excellent job convincing me that I'm an annoying bother of a nuisance and why would anyone want to spend any length of time in my company, etcetera, ad nauseum. So I tend to bury myself in solitary activities and hide from people (especially my friends) until the world straightens out again, though occasionally an outside influence is needed to drag me out from under my metaphorical rock. MrBoot is good for that sort of thing. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  22. Nah, I totally woulda done that too if I'd thought of it. It encourages both the people who remembered (I have the teacher's permission for some mild extortion!), and the people who forgot (next time I wanna be the one getting the free beer!). Win all 'round! Portals, of course! Those things are not mutually exclusive. 10 points to Guindydor for totally stealing the words outta my head! Also that's like 3 not-questions in a row, so I think I might need more adorable cat pictures. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
