    Getting To Know You July

    I can't find it again now, of course, but I put on what looked like a cheesy western romance. Which it was until suddenly they were under siege by vampires of all things. The cover and synopsis did not indicate that it was in fact a horror movie with vampires. I did kind of enjoy it. Discovered that it was a series and watched one more before something else grabbed my attention. I know food. I know, at least locally, what plants you can eat and how to cook them. I know things like what carrots, onions and potatoes look like above ground. I can clean and cook fish and chickens and can probably figure out other critters like squirrels and possums. I know how to tell if preserved food is still good and how long it should be edible. I can also can my own food. On the other hand, I am way out of shape and not a fighter.

    Yesterday, I noticed that one of the fast food joints had story cubes as the prize for kids meals. Today I convinced myself that it was OK to get a kids meal (or two) for myself just for the toys. I get there and they have changed to new toys and are out of story cubes. This has been a very long day and now I am going to find somewhere cool and dark to hide for a while. Maybe I can convince myself to paint later.

    'Clean the House' Really would make life so much easier.

    Life comes at you fast.

    Dang! I'm glad everyone is OK. A building across our street caught fire last year and that was scary enough. I can't even imagine. I will offer any help I can as well. Best wishes as you figure things out going forward.

    Depends on what it is. If I'm into it, yeah. I will binge watch till there is no more. Some things, I just can't. Hard sci-fi, mostly. Black Mirror I can do one or two episodes at most, then I'm done for a week or two. As good as it is, its a lot to take in. I can (and have) binge watched Criminal Minds and Supernatural straight through in a month (for each one). I have found that as much as I want to enjoy it, I had to give up on Once Upon a Time. The good guys never win and it's just too depressing. The last thing I baked at home was peanut butter brownies. Several weeks ago. The last thing I baked at work was some filled croissants, about 30 minutes ago. I am overdue for a croissant and shall remedy that now.

    I have several friends who discovered we were 'adults' when we realized that we had real jobs, could afford big fireworks, and had access to cordless drills and scrap wood to screw the tubes to so they wouldn't fall over! Now as long as we make sure Zach doesn't put the shells in upside down we don't have any more problems with unexpected explosions!

    Eeeeeeee!!! It's really real! I mean, I heard the rumors, but I didn't dare believe. Now there is a real sign on the real building! We are getting a local Harbor Freight! *Squeee*

    I think the worst is a figure I was doing for an art show. It was on of darksword's DiTerlizzi pieces and everything was going right. I nailed the feel of her, the colors were just right, her face came out great, then I went to attach her arm. I dropped suoer glue all over like half the figure. That was the only time I have felt like throwing a mini across the room. I did put her in a cup, put the cup away and move on. That was 2 years ago and I'm just getting to the point where I feel I can even dunk her in simple green and start over. No, I don't have pictures. I may take one for color reference right before I strip her.

    One of my mom's cats loved to jump on my shoulders right as I got out of the shower and rub herself all over my wet head. That was also the only fully clawed cat that could handle balancing on bare shoulders regularly and gracefully. We had a squirrel try to claw it's way out of the wall into our dining room at work. I do this too, but make it incorrectly romanized Japanese phrases.

    Let's see: the big golden one, the little black and yellow one, a purple one and one that has various sized screwdrivers built into the handle. Oh and many various tiny plastic and metal ones. The golden hammer has a plaque with my name on it. It was an award for best theater techie my sophomore year of high school. Also, the number of people that can just list the hammers they own off the top of their heads is pretty awesome.

    Epoxy Resin display piece WIP

    Something you could try for the trees is to dip them in the resin before attaching them. With resin, I worry about how sealers and glues react over time which can cause cloudiness or other undesirable effects. An initial coat of resin would create a barrier the would keep loose foliage attached and should keep the dye from moving beyond that initial coat. I only have limited experience with resins and nothing as big as what you are doing, but I have used an initial thin coat over very textured surfaces, gotten as many bubbles out as I could, let it cure, then done the main pour and it has worked pretty well. What you have here looks really good. You have set yourself a very ambitious project and I am excited to see how it turns out!

    Not sure it was really a computer game, but we had digital coloring story books on 5 1/2 inch floppy disks. My brother and I got to play those and got to watch my dad play Captain Comic. The first board games that I remember were Candy Land, Hi HO Cherry-o, and Are You My Mother. I cannot tell you which one came first.

    My players would not start throwing things at me unless they were incorporeal bees.

    I rediscovered Path of Exile. It has been...not good for productivity. I really like the new league and my character (witch, again) has taken off big time. She deals out so much damage! PoE is a free-to-play* rogue-like similar to Diablo. *no, really free. And not pay-to-win either. They will happily take your money, but they don't sell things that make a difference in gameplay. Just how things look and how much stuff you can packrat away.
