    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Sadly, it's not just people from the Bay Area, nor is it just on mountains. A few years back, we were coming back to Denver from a Thanksgiving gathering in Kansas City on I70. A snow storm blew through, and they shut the highway down at the KS-CO border, so we had to spend the night in a hotel in Goodland, KS. Next morning they opened the road up, but it was icy, and so traffic was going about 15-20 miles per hour max. The right lane was bumper to bumper, and it was basically the only clear lane, because it was the only safe lane to be in. Every now and then, some idiot in an SUV would go racing by in the left lane, which was snowpacked and icy. 20-30 minutes later, the slow moving line in the right lane would pass said idiot off in the median stuck in 3-5 ft of snow at best, but usually rolled over on their side, and in a couple of cases, along with several other cars they had managed to hit when they finally lost control. Took us eight hours to make what is normally about a three hour trip, and I lost count of the number of accidents we passed somewhere past 25.

    No idea if it's statewide, but as a Coloradoan who lived in NorCal for awhile, I was flabbergasted the first time I drove up to Reno with the chain law in effect. I stopped and put my chains on, and got waived through their checkpoint around Auburn - and the road was completely clear the entire way to the NV border. Sitting here reviewing our town's police blotter for the last 6 months, and this young lady's name keeps coming up as a repeat customer for drug related offenses. I can't help but look at her name and feel it is at least partially her parents fault. - isn't that just asking to be associated with meth?

    i completely understand creative blocks and getting depressed by them. I've been going through that a lot lately - I WANT to create, but I still have previous projects I need to finish - and that just makes me not want to do anything. Glad you reached out to Mori - can't wait to see her concept art, and your 3d interpretation of it.

    Getting To Know Each Other, November 2018

    I have to tell my wife's first, because hers is sort of linked to mine: She has this recipe for some sort of egg/potato casserole quiche thing. The recipe calls for evaporated milk. The first time she made it though, she didn't realize that there was a difference between evaporated and condensed milk, and she used the latter. The first bite was pretty decent, but as we took each bite, it became sweeter and sweeter, until finally we couldn't eat another bite. The conversation after dinner was something like: Her: "Well, that was horrible" Me: "I wouldn't say horrible, but definitely different." Her: "I'm not making that again." Me (looking at the recipe card and the can in the trash): "Babe, did you use this condensed milk in the recipe?" Her: "Yes, that's what it called for." I explained the difference, we had a good laugh and she tried the recipe again a couple weeks later, this time with the correct evaporated milk. MUCH BETTER, and it became a staple of her cooking for a few years. But it became a running joke between us that I would always double check if it was made with evaporated or condensed milk before I would take a bite. So a few years later, on one of my nights to be in charge of dinner, I decided to take an easy way out, and throw something in the crockpot. All I had available was chicken, and I didn't feel like using any of my go to sauces for the chicken. So I experimented, trying for some sort of sweet and sour chicken, threw a can of pineapple chunks (juice and all) in the crock pot with my chicken and other ingredients. And after a day full of cooking (which smelled pretty good), what we ended up with was a crock put full of slime. In hindsight, this is what I get for trying to create recipes on the fly at 7am. So now, anytime I cook chicken, or use the crockpot, she asks if I used pineapple, or she'll do things like put post its saying "do not use" on any cans of pineapple chunks we have. At some point, we're going to have to find or create a recipe that uses both condensed milk and pineapple chunks.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Not sure I want to live in a place where shotguns and pumpkins fall from the sky. i think relationships do a lot better when each person has a hobby that they enjoy, and have time to do it. It doesn't matter if it's the same hobby, though it's awesome for those couples who do share one. My wife does stained glass, and we can often be found downstairs hobbying at the same time.

    That sounds like a friend of mine. His ex hated it so much, after he moved out of the house as they started their divorce, she tried to sell off all his gaming stuff. She didn't know anything about it, though, and reached out to some of his friends to either buy it or get help selling it. We told her no and she got pissed. We tipped him off, but unfortunately, it was also trash day, and she hauled everything out to the curb and dumped into the trash cans. Trash truck came before he got to the house. A couple decades of minis - most of them painted - gone, including his prized WW2 collection. Cost her big time in the divorce though. My friend and a couple game store owners were called as expert witnesses as to the value and extent of his collection. She wound up owing him about $10k just over the minis alone.

    Looking good. I have a feeling these are going to be a very popular line.

    @Unruly - that's cool. More people being reasonable (you for forgiveness, and him for taking responsibility) is what this world needs right now. What happened with the guy who claimed to be a cop?

    There is a lot of good stuff on Thingiverse. There is also a lot of stuff where people just merged something they like with something that has boobs.

    Gnome cultist?

    Oooh, Enorah is even better than Petra. Cassie would have been a decent option if I didn't already have 3 other versions of her painted up.

    Gnome cultist?

    Doh! i didn't even think to search Reaper's site first - I already have all the Bones gnomes, and completely spaced out any possible metal options that hadn't made it to Bones yet. Petra will work nicely, plus I'm already planning a Reaper order soon anyway. Thanks!

    But at least you'd have plenty of minis to paint, right?

    Gnome cultist?

    Mwuahahahaha!!!!!!!! So one of the central villains in my HS game club game are going to be a band of cultists worshiping an evil snake god. I've been painting up the various Reaper Bones cultists to represent this group. This info is unknown to the players yet, so I had a yelp of excitement and joy when I was reading the kid's PC backgrounds last night. One of the PCs listed her estranged mother's profession as a "cultist". Perfect tie in to the villain - but then I had a sad face when I realized this PC is a gnome, and thus her mother would be a gnome, too. So now I am on a quest to find a decent mini to represent a gnome (or halfling) cultist. Any suggestions?
