    Aargh. Stupid hit. Stupid penalty. Yeah, we're not going to get that goal back.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I'm actually a season ticket holder, and that's where Mrs. Strawhat is tonight. I could have gone as the game for tonight was cancelled, but she's with the youngest and friend both eldest/youngest. I figured I'd let them have a "girls' night". I'm almost regretting that decision, because it's been a pretty good game. Lucky for me, it's been on TV.

    Whoo-hoo! And the hockey game is tied!

    I should probably salt the porch and driveway in case Mrs. Strawhat brings me some dinner. It wouldn't do for my dinner to get dropped/smooshed. Or for Mrs. Strawhat to hurt herself. Probably should have put that second part first.

    You need to make sure that you have a broad testing pool. *raises hand to volunteer*

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Umm...Soo... Ghostbusters 3 is happening. Jason Reitman (son of the great Ivan Reitman) will head the third installment of the series (the reboot from 2016 is its own thing, and not part of this), picking up in modern times. Cameos or involvement by any of the original cast are unknown at this time. I wonder if they'll get Ron Jeremy back. Summer 2020.
  10. A pumpkin-headed highwayman...preferably mounted.

    What's on TV?

    Made it through the Marvel shows, and am now caught up. I thought they were all "ok." Daredevil was better than the others, followed by Luke Cage, with Iron Fist dragging behind. It's up to The Punisher and Jessica Jones to send out the street-level heroes with a bang. After that, I saw that Netflix had adapted Watership Down to a four-episode miniseries. It was "ok". I think I prefer the adaptation done a four(?!) decades ago...Kehaar was far more entertaining back then. But it's been nearly four decades since I've seen it, so I might be seeing it through the lens of nostalgia. Either way, I should dig out my copy of the book when I get done with The Aeronaut's Windlass and Furies of Calderon.

    Swamp/Marsh mummy

    I thought I watched a documentary on various forms of mummification on Netflix, but I don't see it now. Reaper has some Bog Skeletons in the store in metal--Coming SoonTM in Bones. As for a story, well, there are any number of options. There's been some speculation that at least some of the peat bog mummies were not necessarily unwilling, Tollund Man, for instance. He's one of the best looking ones. From some of the pictures, you could almost expect him to yawn, stretch, and open his eyes. So you could go for the obvious revenant looking to avenge his/her untimely end, or perhaps it's driven to deliver some message (timely or not) or goods, or otherwise complete a task. There's a possibility that after a few decades in a bog, that it's desperate for news of the world and will happily converse with the party if given the chance--perhaps there's a divine message it has to deliver, or knowledge of a valuable item lost to history.

    Unruly tries to airbrush

    Nope, but I think your table is shaky. Get some nine inch nails from the local hardware store, and secure that bad boy. I envy you though, I started talking with the wife, and she said that an airbrush is something I can never have.
  16. Let's hope it doesn't go feral out in the wilderness.

    77490: Mara Frostblade, Antipaladin

    I would have just called it "unholy rage" and left it at that! Happy little accidents and all that.
  20. Wow. They just got the female soldiers out (which, I had to skip, unfortunately), and they're already moving onto the tribals for Ghost Archipelago. I may not be able to resist those. And if female crew come out for GA...

    The Bad Attitude Moai

    Papa Moai seems...displeased by something.
  23. I would definitely second Disserma's suggestion of multiple bases. You might be able to find some secondary market bases for the "huge" X-Wing ships. That would put the barge pretty high off the ground, though. Not necessarily bad, just something to be aware of.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    That's dumb. No, no it's not. I know it sounds dumb, but the composite materials that are being used in inexpensive construction (as found in apartment buildings) will combust if someone is careless (someone will always be careless). We had a pretty serious fire here two years ago because someone used their deck for grilling.
