    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Did not finish desk but did find some reservations for things we needed in Alaska so trip is a go.

    Orrrr maybe we aren't going to Alaska? FIL thinks it'd be easier to go somewhere else. I think we'd have the same issues we're having now. Have to do it that week because the nieces go back to school the next week. But we're going to look at reservations and stuff again tomorrow (which I think is an awful idea waiting). It's hard to plan a trip for 7 people.

    Trying to find a train for the days and number of people going on vacation is probably impossible at this point... In other news, I might finish up my desk today and even start on the floor around it.

    Ma'al Drakar painted as Tiamat (Picture heavy)

    Looks amazing! Where did you get the round base and what size is it?

    OSL and NMM. Right now it doesn't look like I'll have time to play around too much as I've got a pile of stuff to do, painting and otherwise.

    We emailed the company. We think what happened was the guy didn't want to carry ~50 lbs up the stairs (which is mostly why we ordered it instead of picking up in store) and so he left it at the office, who as far as we know don't accept packages...

    SeaTac/Puyallup area Paint Day

    Anywhere north of Tacoma should do it. Highly depends on what time of day you're headed that way. If you're going in the early morning it's best to stay closer to where you need to be. If not you can probably get away with being a little south of where you're going. If I looked up the right VA it's almost exactly an hour for me. Don't really have any hotel recommendations though.

    Very upset right now. Tracking says our AC was delivered. Guess what isn't on our doorstep. I hate ontrac, like you'd think Home Depot could afford something slightly better...

    Taking a break from cleaning, I've gotten a good chunk done. Still a ways to go though. (Sorry for the broccoli photo, camera on the tablet isn't very good.)

    Tabletop minions here too. Also, Layers (by bravesirdave) is a pretty good podcast for hobbying. It gets a little ramble-y sometimes but good enough to get through it.

    If it helps mod podge is basically watered down PVA glue. 1 cup glue to 1/3 cup water should make a good substitute.

    Waiting on the delivery of our AC. Even though it said it was in California 2 days ago and has had no update since I am cautiously optimistic. I've been rather productive this morning. Mostly have been cleaning the paint area, desk, etc. Got my sphinx soaking in some simple green because the face did not go on as smoothly as intended. Also, soaking my ceramic palette to get it clean. While today is much cooler than it has been all week I may finally break out the wet palette and give it a go. But to do that I need a flat spot on the desk so more cleaning to be done.

    SeaTac/Puyallup area Paint Day

    I'd be down for at least a meet and greet. Highly depends on where in Seattle you're going to be in though. I'd be coming up from Tacoma.

    I need to be painting, I now have set dates for things to be done. But migraine. I did get a tiny bit done earlier but then I lost all steam about halfway into it because I over dry brushed part of it.

    I have a pewter wizard with crystal accents I pulled out of the last box of goodwill that I was signed up for. He keeps me motivated...usually.

    Had a weird dream but probably woke up in time to have a good story. Wrote down what I can remember but what stuck out to me the most was "you can't see the forest for the black hole."

    After going back and forth on it over a few days Husband finally ordered an air conditioner. Doctor's orders for me. It'll be here Friday and usable Saturday.
  18. We went several years ago for a wedding. They had a nice oil and vinegar shop of which I'm running low on the stuff we bought. May need to see if its still there.

    Trying to decide if I want to spend $120 on this mini comic con going on at the fair in a couple weeks from now. That includes admission for 1 day for both of us and a photo op with Peter Mayhew...

    Got a fancy tablet today from the in-laws. It's got a detachable keyboard with which I'm using to type this now. We were also offered an AC unit since it's supposed to be unreasonably hot this summer. We'll have to check with apartment management and see if it's something we can actually use first but if we can I'll be super happy.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    So for the last couple years I've set a goal to paint 150 minis/ year. I've yet to reach this goal but the closest I've come to that is 97 minis. I'm super off pace this year. So far I've done 17. Didn't get any painting in in March. I only painted one mini last month and two this month. I've started a lot of bigger projects that are more time consuming so I'm chalking it all up to that being the case. I've currently got 3 large projects and one small project in the works. In the meantime I've also added one more large project and two more small projects to that list of already in progress stuff. I'm going to try not to add anything else until I get at least one of the large projects done or more than one of the small ones. RPG days are scarce in the summer so more time to get things done for games. Current list of IP and to do before September: Mini Ma'al Ma'al Drakar Shub-Niggurath Isabeau Laroche Brand Oathblood Kassandra of the Blade Sphinx I've got WIP threads for 4 of them. One of which I haven't touched since I made it aside from a few comments.
