    Normal? Not Maine Coons, then.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Only after I've thrown my back out and its on the mend. *knocks on wood* That hasn't happened in a while. The thought occurs to me, though, that it might be the remnants of the last glitterwar. @Glitterwolf the Sparkly went mad and lay waste to dozens of craft sections. The carnage choked vacuum cleaners for days. In the end, it took all that mankind had to offer in order to merely survive...

    Or it's a couple Maine Coon toms...

    Nah, probably baklava. Which, I've got to admit, sounds pretty good right now.

    Nothing to see here, move along.

    Were I @Glitterwolf, and on vacation, we would be the last things on my mind (eight days in a foreign country with the better half versus a merry band of ne'er do wells?). Still, it ain't like we're gonna let him forget us!

    Nuts are often good choices for low carbers. Cashews and pistachios are to be taken in very limited quantities, though. Almonds, pecans, and peanuts are great in moderation. Jerky is good, too. Watch out for the teriyaki, though. That stuff is usually horrible on the carb count. One of the best things I've found is bacon jerky--seriously good stuff. A food dehydrator is another option (depending on budget) if your MiL is a DiY-type.

    Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    Speaking of the 80s, movies, and Ron Jeremy... I was watching one of my favorite movies a couple years back when I noticed the distinctive appearance that is a young Mr. Jeremy. At first I though I was seeing things, but after rewinding (and some quick work on Google), I confirmed that Mr. Jeremy is, indeed, an extra in one of my favorite movies from my grade school years.
  9. If they stack reasonably well, glue three or four in a line to use as a barricade. Specifically, I'm thinking of the type like you see in National Treasure 2 where they rise up out of the ground.
  10. Peg legs for ogre pirates? End (bottom) sections for modular fencing. Cut the "post" off, and put a round bead/ball bearing for a crystal ball. With that in mind, cut the post at an angle and put a book on top to make a lectern or other podium. Glue a trimmed popsicle stick across two or more for a bench. Glue three under a round bowl/cup for a monstrous cauldron (WTH is brewing in THAT)?
  11. First off, thank you for a wonderful thread, Chris. This is fan-broccoling-tastic. I'm thinking about talking to my group about the potential for Frostgrave or Ghost Archipelago and I'm sure this thread will be the source of much copying inspiration if they go for it. Give me three or four of those brazier heads, and put I'll them under a huge cauldron or use them on some sort of column/post lighting the way to an altar. I can hear them howling things that even the old gods would rather not be whispered.

    Paint kit on airplane? Advice?

    You can buy shampoo and toothpaste when you get there. Better yet, shave yer 'ead and skip the shampoo entirely! I put that in purple, but am I really joking?

    Zelda, his daughter, posted on her Twitter feed that she did not remember him painting. Which we all know doesn't mean he didn't, but they probably would have run across paints and such when going through his collection if he did much.

    People have been trying that for longer than you think with things like Goldwasser and Goldschläger. Mmmm...Goldschläger....

    Talae Upgrades His Office/Hobby Space

    I had one from the Bones III, and I think I received another from a large-ish order. I would imagine, though, that Reaper are allowing stock to run out until they can update with the newer colors from the new Kickstarter. Talae, your hobby area looked fine to my eyes before you started. It looks great now! I mean, the area would be my hobby area isn't even usable (after the youngest boomeranged three times and the oldest boomeranged once bringing her husband in the process)--but I digress. Excellent work.
