  1. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    I bought a game bundle on Steam this morning. It's the Knights of the Pen and Paper +1 with DLC and the sequel. It is definitely more fun than I had anticipated. It may have been a poor choice to get this before our long weekend away.

    Go to account settings and it should be in the list on the left.

    Both. I mainly paint for gaming but I have done some pieces that are of a higher quality that still see the table. Currently I'm working on: Mini Ma'al Isabeau Laroche (In theory) Fire Giants: Jailer, Warrior, and Bodyguard

    I've acquired a headache. This is not fun, have a ton to do before tomorrow morning. Need to pack, clean, eat at some point, and destress a little before we are ready to go see the nieces tomorrow. Packing for the beach is number one priority, which I need to get up and do because Husband asked me to do some before he gets back from the store with dinner stuffs. Grilled cheeses, mmm. On a less happy note.

    Been really busy the last couple of days. Brain weasels, doctor's appointments, and other things. See spoiler at the end for other things. We're trying to prepare for our nieces to come to town for the week. So far we haven't gotten much done. I did clean a good chunk of the living room this morning though. The in-laws aren't coming over but my mom is going to stop by after work Monday morning and make sure our cat still has food and water and whatnot. My mom knows that things are messy and doesn't judge because her house is probably just as bad comparatively. But we're going to the beach for the weekend with the in-laws. We are headed over to their house Saturday evening and leaving early Sunday and will be back on Tuesday. My mom works not far from here which is why she agreed to stop by and check things out. I don't like being gone that long but since nieces aren't in town that often we spend as much time as possible with them. Not sure when they're coming back after this visit. We may not see them until vacation this summer. We'll have missed both of their birthdays. Oldest will be 11 and youngest will be 7 by then. Other things:

    I did a lot when I was younger but not so much in recent years. When I was a teenager several of us named a friend's car Green. It was white. I can't really think of anything else for the time being.

    This is a maybe. I rode a bike all the time when I was a kid but haven't ridden one in over a decade so I'm not really sure. No funny stories to recall.

    Windows gives me pictures of various things, mostly nature at this point, whenever I pull up the login page after the computer has been sleeping or closed. The current picture is of a Pied Avocet. It's a ridiculous looking bird. I love it. Picture pulled from Wikipedia, pretty sure it's the exact same picture that pops up on my login screen.
  9. Marching On: March 2018 Goals

    Mid-month update: have not done any of these. I have made progress on the paint swatches. I did start up two new projects which I assume I'll start/finish painting this month as long as the paints I need get here before the end of the month. I started on my Mini Ma'al and then started planning out Isabeau Laroche who I'm going to paint up to look like Captain Marvel. I have both WIP's in my signature if you want to take a look at those.

    Got up just after 4 this morning. Got hungry around 5 so I decided eggs sounded good. I also decided I'd try my hand at microwave poaching them. Well I got them cooked but they were more like a mostly hard boiled yolk and the whites of a poached egg. I always forget we have a higher power microwave and need to cut things in half and then for stuff like that I'll usually go with 10 seconds at a time after that. But I forgot and got a weirdly poached hard boiled egg. Still tasty though. Lots of adulting to do today. Groceries, bank, hair cuts, and housework. Maybe we'll have time to squeeze Thor: Ragnarok in. We watched Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 last night and I bawled for the last like 20 minutes. Reminded me too much of my dad in a weird way.

    Cannot swim, after more than one occasion of almost drowning I steer clear of the water for the most part.
  12. Sparrow makes a Mini Ma'al

    From the front the wings look a little wonky but it's good enough. They got a little bent on the way home so I will be boiling just the wings to get them back into a shape that I like and maybe a better angle. I'm not terribly happy with my sculpting on it's left wing. I figure if it's really bad I can go back and fill it in with some brush on sealer and then paint over it to make it look like scales.
  13. Getting to Know You, Mar 2018

    I've fallen behind on this this month but I have an answer today! I'm currently in the process of modding the bones hydra to have wings to be a mini version of Ma'al. So far it's going well and there's only been one injury. I'm pretty happy with it as it is right now but we'll see how that goes as I continue.
  14. I saw the minis before I knew anything about the game. Then I read some reviews and things about the game and knew I needed it.

    I'm home from mom's. It's getting more stressful to stay over there because of step-dad's health issues. We have to go back over there Wednesday for Sibling's birthday. Most likely not staying the night or anything though. I'm worried about my mom because she has to deal with this 24/7 almost. She works 12 hours shifts on the weekends with patients that have the same sort of health issues that my step-dad have going on so she doesn't really get a break from it. Which makes me feel bad that I don't get over there more often to spend time with mom. She's probably going through some empty nesting stuff on top of all of it. I'm trying to convince her she needs to go see the doctor for some on going pain and what not but so far she hasn't had the time to do it and hasn't been able to find a doctor that's taking new patients currently. Sorry for the rant. I slept for just over 12 hours last night. Probably due to stress and having my sleep thrown off. While I was gone our copy of Stuffed Fables came in. It looks super adorable and I've just glanced through the rules book. I'm hoping the nieces love it, it was difficult to track down, but it was also something that I wanted so even if they don't love it I'll still have some cute minis to paint and a new game to play.
