  1. I watched the first season last year and it's still good. But I have sometimes been known to have questionable taste.
  2. That's the most bizarre thing I've seen in awhile. Liked the girls though. I'm pretty good at Super Mario Kart on the wii but suck at Mario Cart 8 on the WiiU. My mouth is watering thinking about slow cooked pork. Supper was a bit on the lean side tonight and I'm about ready for a late snack.
  3. It's a popular genre now.
  4. I hear you. That's been about the best I've done the last couple of days too. I'm calling it babysitting because the little critter is lying close to me. Kind of got used to lying in bed with the laptop instead of sitting at a table like I used to.
  5. May not be the most practical design but it gets the jobs done. Yet another example of why I think the gods are insane if we are the best they can come up with.
  6. Not gonna argue about the weirdness but it's not all bad. A friend of mine once explained it to the girls this way, we don't have them. So that makes them very interesting. He figured that if he could only grow a set he'd be happy playing with them all day. Or maybe what Mad Jack said too. Plus as guys we get a lot of the enjoyment out of them without any of the hassles. Well other than having to put up with women which isn't always easy.
  7. Was telling the wife about Reapercon and the people here getting ready for it. She likes to travel so she was wondering how far it was. Only 2300 km. So guess we won't be going. Maybe someday but doubtful just because we got a lot of places higher up on the travel wish list. While looking at Google Maps I spotted a town in Chihuahua named Delicias. Delicious chihuahua gave me a chuckle. Don't think I'm ready to add that to my travel list yet. Went to do a bit of hobbying this afternoon. Want to paint my camel riders but just not feeling it right now. Sat there playing with the Graveyard expansion and thinking about Halloween stuff. Eventually got tired of having the camels staring at me begging for attention so I left. If you've never been stared at by a camel you don't know how disconcerting it can be. And there's 7 of them! Trying to decide if I'm enjoying the sleep deprivation too much this afternoon. Brain keeps waddling off in strange directions but at least they're amusing directions. Might need a quick nap before supper.
  8. Shifting gears, or possibly just slipping and grinding them. Only big piece of terrain that I have to paint is the Mausoleum and graveyard expansion. Halloween and all coming up I'm thinking of doing them. My wife likes to set up little seasonal dioramas on our china cabinet in the dining room. Undead I've got lots of and can easily do more. Original October goals; DDS2 ruins - done 6 roman camel riders + bones pack camel - slightly painted 15 goblins wolf riders - 4 done, 3 partials, 8 primed Optional goals ; Mausoleum and graveyard scenery Autumn trees 16 pathfinder goblins Never counted how many cultists from Reaper and Northstar
  9. Yeah, I'm a handy, do it yourself kind of guy but I know just enough about explosives to leave them to somebody with real experience and training. I have a strong attachment to my fingers, hands and other body parts. It's not an area that I feel comfortable with being self taught and experimenting.
  10. I'm assuming it was a break somewhere because the annual flushing was a couple weeks ago and it didn't cause as much sediment as what we have now. This also only affected our area and not even the stuff about a 1/2 mile away. There should have been some sort of notification but because the town is so small a lot of things fall into "call the office if you want to know" category. If you're like me and tend to ignore everything not directly involving me things get missed. We've instituted the boil water advice already. What we drink is filtered and that won't get rid of pathogens but at least it wasn't red. I actually closed off the filter system when the sludge hit so that it wouldn't clog it all. I'll be making a call in the morning to find out what's up.
  11. Are you getting lonely for other platypi? 'cause that don't look real close to me! Two days ago the town did something which filled all our water pipes full of rusty sludge. Clogged all the taps and shower head. Spent an hour or so yesterday cleaning things out. Today we're noticing that the water pressure is way lower than normal. Not sure if there's some blockage in the lines or if it's because the town's pressure is low. The house doesn't have it's own pump and pressure system. I'm tired and cranky because of lack of sleep and MIL starts in on me about it. I said I can't fix it because I don't think it's a problem in the house. Her: She get's mad and tells me to call the water station and get their opinion on what's wrong. Me:I ask what water station? I live in a town of 500 people. Instead of a water tower we have a tank on top of the hill. Water is automatically pumped up there and from there it runs down to town. Her: Well somebody must be on duty there. Call them. Me: You seriously think somebody is sitting on top of the hill on a Sunday waiting for phone calls? The town only has 2 permanent workers and they get Sundays off. Her: This is serious you need to call somebody. There has to be somebody available for emergencies! Me: Low water pressure is not an emergency. We still have water it just takes longer. If it's still poor tomorrow I'll call the town office and see what they have to say. Her: You never want to complain or yell at anybody to get them to fix things. And goes off in a huff. Me: Nope I hate people who yell and broccoli about everything. You got to be doing something seriously wrong before I scream at you. I'm more about dealing with the problem calmly and efficiently. Just want to have a good sleep and get some work done. I know a good night's sleep is going to be rare for a long time now but don't feel like dealing with other stuff unless it's real important.
  12. When I do paint the dragon I'm going to try and keep him removable. Then I can still use it's base piece as another chunk of ruins. I'll use ruins way more often than a dragon.
