    Something's not quite right

    Mrs. Bowes makes her way into the village. It's a lovely morning, but.... She can't shake the feeling that something is not quite right. Even the sheep seem unusually disturbed.
  2. Got to see Aquaman last night. It was pretty, but also predictable, trope laden, and badly paced. At the start it felt like the story was moving way too quickly, and then later there are sequences where major plot events happen in about 30 seconds. There's no character development in any of the characters, they're all thin as paper. Also the writers missed lots of opportunity to show human pathos, especially since the main character is supposedly trying to save the surface world. As I said, the visuals are pretty, there's lots of special effects, the soundtrack is even decent. If you're looking for entertainment and 2 hours of popcorn eating, you could do worse.

    So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

    Meals at the con were abandoned, except for meet-n-greet which has been pizza the last couple years. With ~100 people it was a nice idea, but with 500-1000 people now it would just be a hassle. The hotel restaurant has sit-down lunch service but last year DH and friends waited a very long time for it, almost missed class because it was so slow. YMMV. There's also a coffee shop in the lobby, if a mocha latte and a muffin count as lunch. We drove the half mile or so to the nearby fast food and sandwich places most days.

    03329: Hannah Blackruby, Female Wizard.

    She looks nice. Don't forget to paint the base. :) For pics I'd suggest moving the lamps, if possible. Judging by the shadows the light is hitting the figure on the side not seen by the viewer, so we are seeing her in shadow. You want the light and the camera to be on the same side.

    What kind of chocolate are you looking for? If it is the cheap novelty chocolate in bags, then try grocery stores and drug stores. Although they may not start discounting for a day or two. The best prices don't come for a couple weeks yet. If you want really good quality chocolate, single source or fair trade then I would look in coffee shops, and at Cost Plus. A few grocery stores, like Whole Foods will also have it.

    https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/articles/how-to-make-bacon-in-the-microwave Doesn't sound like the problem was something you caused. Congrats on the "enhanced hearing" skill. I am constantly asking my husband "What is that noise?" and getting "What noise?" in reply.

    This. We don't make a big fuss about it. Sometimes we pick a nice restaurant, sometimes we go for burgers, sometimes I make a nice dinner at home. I like chocolate, but I don't need (or want) a huge box of it, especially the cheap stuff they sell for the occasion.

    Lidless Eye Hobbies: Random Animal Minis

    Well done. Those puppies have their work cut out for them, rounding up that nasty lot.

    El Matador was the place we went last year. ~2 miles up University. Good food and lots of it. I think next time DH and I will share an entree. They have a huge dining room with large tables, if you want to go as a group.

    Hmmn. I'm tempted to say Charisma, but with autoimmune disease it has to be Con. I rarely get through a day without fatigue.

    Bones Paint Allergy?

    I am sorry your wife ended up in the ER, but glad to hear it cleared up. I hope she is feeling much better, that would have been terrifying. I've never had THAT experience, but I did have a significant allergic response to handling fresh raw Bones plastic at the con last year. I had to leave class and run to my room for allergy medication. My hands broke out in blisters after handling unwashed figures in class. Fortunately I got it under control, and I now wash everything before working with it.

    Raise your hand if it's snowing

    I don't know if this is sad or funny. It's been a week since it snowed and the city plow just now came down our street, which is mostly melted off, and scraped a little ice on the curbs.
  16. That gas mask looks great. Still not so sure about the color of her dress.

    I'd do some silver or gold metallic on the girls (think gold lame' or sequinned costumes.) Going to get some popcorn. :)

    I have pre and post surgical x-rays and photos, but I'm not sharing. I collect a lot, too much in fact. Some of it is in boxes that haven't seen the light of day in decades. Here are some that were easy to get pics of: The crap on top of my desk: Depression and Carnival glass (and other pretty stuff): This is a fraction of the sewing books and fabric: I also collect scenic watercolors/prints by local artists, from places we travel to.

    Two Old Biddies

    Dismayed by the offerings at the market, the old crone continues down the street and encounters a friend. "Don't go that way," she says, "Nothing fresh there today." "I've a bit of fresh news," the hag answers. "There was a bit of a ruckus up at the church this morning..."

    So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

    There are several in the area, ranging from drive-thru to full service. We went to one a mile or two up the road, it was very good, and way too much food. That is the advantage of having cats. I fill up the feeder and put extra water down and we're good to go without any fear of child protective services.

    Shop local, spend local. Fresh fish today: "Doesn't smell too fresh to me."
  23. I like it! I like the weatherbeaten look you gave it, and the little details like the cable and the display panels. It will really add a lot to the game when you use it.

    Outside the Pub

    Mr Bowes stops outside the pub: "I say, Mr Pitney?" "Yes, Mr Bowes?" "Do you fancy a pint? " "Yes, now that you mention it I am a bit dry. ... "Did you hear that, Mr Bowes?" "Hear what, Mr Pitney?"

    Raise your hand if it's snowing

    We got a fresh layer of ice on everything last night. Glad I stocked up on provisions Friday. My car is not going anywhere for a few days. I had trouble getting it in the driveway last night after gaming. I've seen hockey rinks that weren't this smooth.
