  1. Books are my addiction, I cannot put them down. If I start to read something I need to make sure that my life wont be adversely impacted by my staying up until 2am. I tend to only read on holidays (when I have time) and I try not to re-read books, it becomes a temptation to put the book down and grab the latest one from that author. I was going to answer nope, then I realised that my cooking isn't restricted to savory items... uh... yes, I'll snack on just about any sweet ingredients.

    It is Thursday. You’re on Aussie time Jack.

    Getting To Know Each Other, November 2018

    Gosh I have so many of these, I guess one of the best is substituting baked beans for red kidney beans. I find that it just tastes nicer, I make no claims on the nutritional value of the substitution. Also dry packet soups, in particular the cream of chicken soup, work great to make a sauce for a chicken pie, chuck it in the frypan on top of the cooked chicken and veggies, add milk and water and let it thicken up before transferring to an oven safe dish that you cover in puff pastry (don't forget to poke a hole in the puff pastry). (OK so it's not really a pie, but it's delicious) and... freeze overripe bananas (peel them first) to use for smoothies or other cooking purposes later, also do not be like my other half and later confuse these for sausages, I'm telling you right now it doesn't end well for anyone.

    I'm conflicted on this one, I'm pretty sure that if it was a song I'd no longer be able to listen to it. Paintings other art? maybe I'm not sure. It would definitely kill a part of the experience for me. I feel like I could probably watch a TV show or a movie, but it would have to be something that I didn't go out of my way to view. Like others have mentioned I wouldn't want to be in a position where I was supporting them after finding out.

    Getting To Know Each Other, November 2018

    It depends on the type of brainweasel, I have different strategies for my own, sometimes zoning out (i.e. listening to music with headphones on and not interacting with anyone), sometimes throw myself into a computer game, sometimes cleaning. The other half has way more severe brainweasel attacks than I do so a lot of what I do is aimed at helping him recognise when he is under attack, and encouraging him to get out and exercise and socialise, both things that really help him. Ummm... someone gave me their parking spot along with a paid all day ticket once. I may place too high of a value on parking spots though. I *really* *really* like getting a park at work, not getting one means I have to get up and move my car every two hours because the next closest parking spots are too far away for me to walk to work. I did my job well at work today, and that's how I'm being kind. I'm not paid well for what I do and a large part of why I stick with the job is because it helps other people.
  6. Been waiting to pull the trigger on this one for a while, the Black Friday discounts while not huge was incentive enough. Not shown is an A4 size army painter cutting mat. I picked up the bushido miniatures at the same time to bulk up the order to get free shipping. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

    mmm we're in the process of getting our hot water system replaced too. Technically it broke over a week ago. Just lots of delays in getting the new system. The expense is annoying but little more than that at this point, kind of surprised it lasted as long as it has.

    Black Friday Deals

    On the not-mini side of things it looks like Kraken Dice is going to be doing a 4 day sale event. Looks pretty good to me.
  10. I got so excited then, for like two seconds...wrong Sibling even if it is capitalised.

    'Sleeping beauty'-esque scenic diorama

    You can make roses out of ribbons. I’m not sure that you could make them small enough for what you want to do here. https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/m.wikihow.com/Make-Folded-Ribbon-Roses%3famp=1

    Kind of taking the weekend off cooking because the other half has a kendo event this weekend which means he hasn't eaten at home (and won't) until Monday night. As it is just myself and the little one we have been enjoying all the food that the other half dislikes. If I change my mind and bake something I'll post an update. My most hilarious kitchen accident was when I was very young and at home with Dad. I decided to make him lunch, so I made him what I thought was a ham, tomato, and lettuce sandwich. He ate it with a smile. I'm still teased to this day about the cabbage sandwich I made. Apparently the smile was forced...

    Erm, not making an effective doomsday device to destroy the world because I didn't have an answer for Nov. 13 I don't really have anything to apologize for because I don't think I'd waste my last day being mean or angry. I could almost guarantee I would be apologizing for *something* regardless or whether it was my fault or not...it's a bad habit and I really need to stop it.

    Tomb Guardians miniatures - 11/6

    Well I backed at the faction level. If you are on the fence it might be worth checking out because they've added another sweetener for early backers that are prepared to back at Beginner Monster Level or higher but it is time sensitive. The above quote was lifted from Update 9 if you are looking for it.

    Here's one I prepared earlier... Killer Frog, painted as corroboree frog which used to terrify me as a kid.... they were on stamps here...Mine turned out a little orange and I still need to fix the base, but I was pretty happy with it. Really hope you didn't mean painting a live animal, as frogs are kinda hard to catch and really refuse to sit still for painting.

    Well and truly OK. The fire has been downgraded to Patrol Status. This basically means they are looking for and putting out any hot spots they find.

    I want to be an empath, but in addition to being able to "read" feelings I want to be able to project them as well...

    Fly. I've been afraid of time travel ever since someone pointed out the medical advances we've made.

    A vase that belonged to my great grandmother. To be fair I don’t think it’s worth much but I love it.

    I'm not very good at comments, usually someone else has already said what I wanted to say... but I can do the likes pretty easily

    @sumbloke Yup, I'm also southside at Gowrie. I had to keep an eye on the media releases and other information for work related purposes, so the ESA have said its "contained" but all other information says its "being controlled" I'd like to know what a fire "being controlled" means... for me either it is controlled or it isn't ...
