    ReaperCon 2019 -- Classes I Would Take

    Interesting idea, but maybe as a second or third mini. After running a paint and take, one of the things that suprised me was that most people just want to sit down and slap some paint on without much in the way of instruction. It was getting started on that first step that people asked the most about. I recommended that they start with a liner layer and very rarely did they want more than that other than help finding a particular color. That said, having times when the paint and take table was overseen by a person might not be a bad idea. It would pretty much have to be a volunteer. Maybe have a sign up sheet so you could commit to an hour or two at a time. I would have no problem doing that. And it would be cool to be able to say "OK this drybrushing technique I just showed you is detailed in more depth step by step with pictures in the Learn To Paint Kits that are sold right over there!"

    Actually, you can do cool things with water, baking soda and superglue.

    I am now envisioning a minis science fair type exhibition. Which is kind of awesome. Assuming that by 'poster' you mean a large 2D informational display.

    Yeah, I am hatching eggs as fast as I can, around 1-2 a day, and no regionals yet. I had stopped working on 7k eggs because I was not that interested in Alolans. I will be very frustrated if I don't get any of the regionals.

    Woohoo! Went for a walk to Joann's. Noticed that there was a raid starting soon in the nearby park. High tailed it over there to catch the (mewtwo) raid. No one was there when I arrived . Decided to wait cause I can. Half an hour later, a raid parade shows up. About 12 cars that are just driving around town doing all the raids. And apparently there is at least 2 of these groups . We do the raid which is really easy with 15 lvl 30 plus people. And I catch the thing on the first ball . Then I have to walk home. Now I am tired, but happy. Had not made it to an exraid yet because they only give me passes when I can't possibly show up .

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I finished a project! I love this little clock and was very sad when the mechanism stopped working. Being a frequent flyer at the local hobby stores, I bought a new movement. Now, I did not measure anything, just found one that looked about the right size. Got the thing taken apart and even installed the old hands in it. The hole on the minute hand was just a bit too small, but for some reason I have lots of tools for working soft metal. A bead reamer and a few delicate minutes had the hand fitting. Got everything put back together and my little clock runs again . That is the old movement there beside it. I am ridiculously proud of myself. More so that I have no leftover pieces, all of my fingers and skin and it took less than an hour.

    At this point, I could get really excited about a 2 part sculpting class. 2 or 4 hours. Since my BMPC did so well in competition, I really want to build on that and sculpt more.

    It was. I will never forget it. Years later I met his wife at a Star Trek club and got invited to a couple of their Scifi Sunday's. They invited all of their college professor friends, including professional writers, for Sunday brunch. I learned so much from those discussions. The world is smaller than any of us know and any connection can make a big difference even years later.
  10. I have never done one of these, but would love more excuses to make more 2d art. I'm in if no one minds me experimenting with media and color.

    ReaperCon '18 swag bag *online version*

    I made my will save and put mine back. I do have that sophie and it isn't a favorite and I shouldn't spend the money now. Someone else wants it more than I do.

    Pottermore - What did you get?

    OK, must have gotten a bizarre subset of questions the first time because it put me in Gryffindor. Full quiz gave results more in line with other quizzes: Pottermore Sorting Quiz (all possible questions) Your Result: HUFFLEPUFF! 84% Congratulations! You have been sorted into Hufflepuff, the house of loyalty, hard working, acceptance, and fairness. You are amongst other Hufflepuffs such as: Tonks and Cedric Diggory 84% RAVENCLAW! 42% SLYTHERIN! 32% GRYFFINDOR! Patronus quiz refuses to work on my phone, which makes me sad cause I was looking forward to it.

    I have a lot of dinosaurs that I like, brontosaurus, anklosaurus, tricerotops, but my favorites have always been the aquatics. Ammonites, crinoids, trilobites and colecanths are at the top of my list. My favorite individual fossil is the tylosaurus on display at the KU natural history museum. I'm pretty sure that was the one I got to help clean and prep for display in high school when I shadowed one of their paleontologists.

    My step mother teaches teachers as well. She even cowrote a couple of books on mixed methodology. Talking to her about it makes me realize how much I don't know about teaching.

    Looking around the living room: Cons for posters and props, bookstores, craft stores for seasonal decor that I made, thrift stores for tea pots and cups and shelves of miniatures from all over.
