  1. Getting to Know You, April 2018

    Buying Citadel paints. I've had at least one DOA (which was annoying, because I actually needed it for something), and ... yah, generally, not doing that anymore if I can avoid it. >.<
  2. Getting to Know You, April 2018

    Uh .. Wow. *points at people up thread* I was just going to borrow a few of their ideas, and maybe finish the basement so I could have a whole room dedicated to it...
  3. Getting to Know You, April 2018

    Oh, long since. We don't tend to sit on that kind of thing...
  4. Dwarf Zeppelin

    I'm going to pass on this one myself. I was unthrilled both with quality of the last one and their packing job (sacks of resin, loose in a box do not travel well. It's a miracle I only had a couple of pieces arrive damaged).
  5. *grabby hands* Yesterday, I snaffled an Ancient Silver (we don't have enough large metallic dragons, so I will ignore my usual distain for giving WotC money for a large metallic dragon or three), that I'm pretty sure I could have painted better and a book and some immediate pointers on where I can find Mr. Thorne a Siberian kitten (local breeders are all tabbies, he wants a Neva Masque.. sigh), but, hey, progress.

    I discovered there are some WH minis from the AoS era that might be useful to me for non-Warhammer purposes... The lamia-like snake ladies, if anyone's curious. ;p Wouldn't be the first time that happened, I like the Fenrisian wolves, and I have an unsuspecting Warmahordes mini I really need to finish painting (Poor Abs, she's been sitting about in pieces for months now..) Not much else comes to mind. :p
  7. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    The glamourous life of a chicken farmer. I just finished washing a fhuge mat of poo and eggshells off a pooferbum. This was delicate work. Delicate! *sigh* I'm pretty sure I'm going to get to do it again.
  8. Have I suggested the Memory, Sorrow and Thorn trilogy yet? Or Tailchaser's Song, by the same author? Naturally, I can't remember his name.. *sigh* How 'bout Shadow Warrior (Pat Zettner)? Or So You Want to be A Wizard (Diane Duane)? I have that and the other two books as one, called Support Your Local Wizard. I didn't like High Wizardry as much as SYWTBAW and Deep Wizardry, though. The Wall of Literature might not be the very first thing that greets the eye on walking into our place, but it's close. ^^;

    No more than any other day. We've had a lot of black cats; 'Dini, Onyx, Hector, Paris, Fetish and Miss Cat, just to name a few. Of all of those, only Miss Cat is still with us; she is a lovely, affectionate purrball, and she is one of those black cats that shows up as a dark, chocolatey brown when the sunlight gets her fur just right. She chirps at us a lot. I would say plushies would count, if you are allergic to the real thing. I am also told that Siberian cats are non-offensive, but your mileage may significantly vary, and I would test this assertion with a great deal of care, were I in your shoes.

    I like maps in general. Many are attractive in their own right, and most are useful.
  11. Getting to Know You, April 2018

    Yes. Makes my life all kinds of easier. Most everyone ahead of me has already explained some of the reasons why, so I'll leave it at that... and I like the feel of the things banging around in there.
  12. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    I figure that if I want people to tell me 'Happy Birthday' - or, really, any variant thereof, they need to at least know what /day/ I was born. ... barring needing to know that I am legally an adult, however, they don't need to know the year. ^^
  13. Could try the books The Expanse are based on; I just pulled my head out after three days of binging six of the eight available. Physics! In Space! That actually sort of work! Wizard of Earthsea is also very good; I should read those again.
  14. Not-quite thirty peeping poofers.. (Chicks. I ordered chickens). 14 buff orpingtons and 14 misc. exotics. The cats are fascinated, and the only place I can put them - because my hens have not done me the favor of going broody soon enough - is in my studio. *sigh* It's going to be a long four months... A long, /warm/ four months; that damn lamp throws a lot of heat, even positioned so the poofers get the majority.
