  1. Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    Did ya know I had six toes on each foot?

    That machine had some issues. The main one that annoyed me was when you got it into the area on the left and it fired the ball back out it would go right down the center 99% of the time. Was making me want to go home and play Pinball FX 3 on my XBOX.

    Bryan, you have made me rethink my career goals and staying where I am at. If you can move on...I can too!
  4. Brain in jar?

    My daughter loved making it. She entered it along with a couple other smaller guys she did into the RCon youth division and won a medal for this one!
  5. Pie Party!

    I would like to. Not sure what the holidays are going to be like. We are about to have surgery done on our little dog's leg tomorrow and they are saying 12 weeks of rest and therapy. If that Friday is not too bad I would love to run out for a bit and enjoy some pie and company. Seeing as you are maybe 10 min away it would be easy to make it at some point in the afternoon.

    Me either....umm..yeah...I just heard it was a fun thing to do and thought I would throw it out there. :)
  7. [SPLIT] Dallas roads are bizarre and make no sense

    Had to share this intersection in McKinney with those not familiar to the area. No clue what you call it but it reminds me of a figure 8 race track. https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/edit?mid=1hzKZ0C3jUlEYj88QZEZMeoibfZVpo-hV&ll=33.1718669133294%2C-96.64081208542098&z=19
  8. [SPLIT] Dallas roads are bizarre and make no sense

    There is a reason we always have had the saying... "All roads lead to Denny's"
  9. Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    This may be one reason I don't mind living here. Had a job for about 7 years where I lived ~10 min away. Then I got this new job almost 7 years ago and we moved out here near it and I am about 5-10 depending on if lights catch me. So yeah...traffic is only a problem when I need to run somewhere at rush hour times.

    Yeah Allen elementary schools are rated one of the best here. Plus she got into the new GATE academy they started by doing great on the testing and then winning the lottery draw they did since it was limited to 2 kids from her grade level at the school she was attending. After all that and her enjoying the program so much we would hate to take her away from it all.

    I am in Allen but at this point anywhere in the DFW area feels about the same. At times we feel like we are just far enough out of the big city to enjoy life a little more. Then I want to go somewhere in the big city and it takes 45 min to get there. :/
  12. Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    Well I see the problem right there. :) Big D is where the cool people reside.
  13. Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    44 1/2 years here....so yeah I may be rooted in at this point. I do keep mentioning to the wife that with my work I can be just about anywhere and work remote. She has been tempted but really wants to keep our daughter in the school system here in Allen.
  14. Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    Well some of us can make any time of the year work. :P Even if I had other things going on that week I would get out there to visit and shop. So easy solution....you all move to TX.
  15. Halloween grumpiness

    Trick or Treat!!! (looks even better with me moving around and flapping arms like a mad man)
  16. Heh. Couldn't wait until I got the Fade bust and decided if I was going to keep it or not? :)
  17. ReaperCon 2017 pictures

    Ojeda's sounds familiar. I am out in Allen. There are plenty of good places to take a goblin for some good Tex Mex the next time he is in town.
  18. ReaperCon 2017 pictures

    Not sure I would call El Fenix good Tex Mex. If @buglips*the*goblin liked Taco Bell I am sure he loved El Fenix. :)
  19. Out of the stuff on the list this is about half. Still a few minor and busts that should come direct from companies. Another game or two and a lot of gift certificates for online shopping. Doubt I will use any from the companies outside of US.
  20. This stuff was waiting for me when I got home. The first chunk of things won in the WAMP charity raffle. Sent to me straight from UK. Now to go through it and make a list of things I don't want or can't keep so I can find them a new home.
  21. Auction Action for "Low Rollers"

    BUT it is not gambling if no money is involved. :) Doubt it would happen...just something I tossed out there a couple years ago when I realized I needed more RBs to do much at the auction.
  22. What is the case in the Swag Bags?

    Yeah the X-Case version has a KS going and info can be found in the KS forum. I liked these Mage cases enough I jumped in for 2 of the clear X-Cases.
  23. Auction Action for "Low Rollers"

    Didn't we get enough cool stuff from them? The only thing about the auction and not enough RBs to do much for me is the 40 min drive I take on the last day to hang out for 2 hours. Other than that I enjoy watching the bid wars on some of the items and feel like I got plenty of stuff from Reaper in my VIP and Swag bags....plus any goodies given out in classes. Edit: Oh and once my daughter is a bit older and if she still goes with me at that time I think it will be more enjoyable because hopefully she has learned at that point we don't always win stuff. I should have brought my poker chips and tried to get some mini tournaments going for RBs. 6-8 players in for 500 and winner takes all. Something to do if you like playing Texas Holdem and a chance to get 3000+ more RBs. Could not do this on a Sat since the daughter is with me...even though she enjoys playing too but Thurs and Fridays would work great.
  24. Auction Action for "Low Rollers"

    Wow. 4k? I feel like I got shorted now or do games give that much? We had something like 1950 total from VIP package an extra swag bag and 6 classes...oh and daughter dressed up on Sat.
  25. Auction Action for "Low Rollers"

    I am not the one taking them from those that won so no clue how much it happens but heard something while there that made me think it was being done by some. I was just beat down by then and knew we would not be getting anything in the auction but got more beat down once we were there and told that the yellow tickets had been depleted. At that point I was just sitting on 1850 RBs knowing they would be given to someone else if we headed out because of Alice being bored or thrown away if we stayed until the end. If it were just me I would have hung out and either given them away at end or hoped to find something near the end for that amount. Not sure I could keep from taking her with me on Sunday next year. :)
