  1. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    The child is on defiant firehose today and I am absoredactedlutely DONE. I now have about 50% fewer RMS Sample paints and I need to powerwash the back porch. I always thought "so angry I can't see straight" was a colorfull euphamism. This is now my new favorite word.

    I tend to define "accident" fairly loosely nowadays.
  3. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    I may have started a 6mm army of the Oathbreakers from the Stone of Erech...
  4. Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    "Raw Water" is apparently a thing. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raw_water All I have to say to that is:
  5. 6mm Army of Gondor

    6mm army of Gondor at some unspecified point in history near the end of the Third Age of Middle Earth. Here are shown six units of heavy infantry, six units of skirmishers including Rangers of Ithilien, four units of heavy cavalry, and four commanders. Materials: 4mm needlepoint mesh aka "granny grating", bling ribbon, and 1/4" screen.
  6. Siri could use thoughts/prayers

    This is normal and ok. We just went through this with my wife's grandmother (age 96, passed this weekend) and are going through it with her husband of 70+ years (99 and strong, but mentally gone.)

    No no, there are no Picts in The Lord of the Rings.
  8. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    The army is finished. Picts will happen if I ever do a Britannica project.

    We buried my wife's grandmother today.

    I shall eventually finish my Gondor army and then play my first game of Mayhem.
  11. Mid life crisis

    I must incessantly quote this.
  12. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    You are at this point morally obligated to find something else to do.
  13. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    My wife's grandmother Ruth passed away last night at the age of 96 after a long decline. She and her husband were some of the first white people in their area of Niger in the 1950s where they built the first hospital in the area. He was a surgeon, she was his support, and raised 6 kids there. She was one of the sweetest, kindest, and strongest women I have ever known. She was, and remains, one of my heroes. I was privileged to have seen her at both Thanksgiving and Christmas this past year.

    Seems about right, given what we know about Klingons.
  15. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    6 units of 128 6mm Gondor soldiers each, ready for their banners.
  16. The Hordes of Mordor in 6mm

    6mm hordes of Mordor, made from 4mm needlepoint mesh also called "granny-grating". Here pictured are 8x archer skirmishers, 2x Olog-hai trolls, 2x Uruk-hai great orcs, 6x regular orcs, Gothmog, Smaug, the Witch-King, and a troll captain.

    “There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.” -Douglas Adams

    My cousin, who I had no idea was a nerd, just posted about getting D&D and dice. If only I didn't live 14 hours away from her.

    It doesn't get easier.

    My condolences on this noble loss. You have my permission to beat with a frozen haddock anyone who tries to trump your grief with any smarmy Rainbow Bridge memes.
  23. RIP 'Fast' Eddie Clark

    Well, those who have also passed on are that much closer to a Motorhead reunion tour...

    I wasn't. I have two Authorized Canines on the sofa.
