    They really should credit the modeler on the boxes, though.

    WIP 07010: Adrasteia Winterthorn, Vampiress

    I really like the base you did, and I think you got mostly mossy. If you trimmed the fibers on the moss to be a wee bit shorter, you'd have it BAM, right there. As is, still delightful and very good work

    Even my mom has gotten a paint sample and I think she's made two orders. Okay forumites. We need to make sure to write in the text box of special instructions on our orders to say "Treat the hamster really nice. We hear he likes paint."

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Areas where you have a high population living without snow, but with weekend access to snow, seem extra prone to idiocy. Idiocy is everywhere, but not everywhere has the same opportunities to exploit it, or opportunities to have regular experiences to learn from (areas where there is snow to learn in).

    The Crock Pot is a mystery on timing and temperature. It seems to like the concept of mush. I lose my control over my food. Stove top and I have control over my food. It isn't abandoned to the magic of The Crock.

    I remember dealing with this regularly growing up, since we'd drive from the Bay Area to Tahoe regularly. We had Subarus with good tires so we didn't need chains. The repaving is annoying, but the alternative is what they've done in BC that I recently found out: you aren't allowed to drive in mountain regions during winter (as defined by a specific date range) unless your vehicle has winter tires, period. Even if the conditions are good and no snow or ice is on the road. The Sierras always had a few people dying due to Darwinism each winter though. As you said, they shouldn't have been driving in that weather to begin with. My family went through some nasty snow storms, but that's when you go really slow and steady, if you have to go out at all. Too many people from the Bay Area assumed that an SUV was a permit to drive like a maniac through mountain roads and in snow. No... that's not how it works.

    I have a crock pot and it perplexes me.

    You need a firm chewy bread. Can't use just any bread with soup. Some bread is ruined. Some becomes even more..... souper. SUPER SOUPER.

    I have had soup in a bread bowl and it is awesome. I have not made bread for doing so though. Got a recipe for soupy bread?

    Also: I now need a baked soup. For reasons.

    Getting To Know Each Other, November 2018

    This weekend will be full with showing Sir Cyr's family around the city, and Meet & Greet for a potential D&D group. So I probably won't bake this time. But if you want the recipe for Gneiss Brookies, I can give you that... just lemme know when. Cooking accidents? Uhh, first time I tried to make steak in the new apartment, I was sick and couldn't smell. I messed up and burnt a bunch of stuff and set the fire alarm off. Hilarious and miraculously not injured.... erhm... Family gathering for the holidays. Sir Cyr, myself, Dad, Dad's spouse, and her teen niece. We had a *lot* of wine. The family keeps good stuff flowing. We had to explain some of the raunchier cards to the clueless 15 year old. The niece watched us being - she was the responsible one here. But she is a teen, and a teen in sore need of SCIENCE. So while I was a blithering idiot, I decided to go into the kitchen and show her that you can dissolve more sugar in liquid when it is heated. I put water on the stove, heated it, and kept adding sugar. And kept adding it.... that part went fine. But sloshed me then decided that this sugar slop should get poured into ice cube trays. Mind you, this stuff is boiling hot supersaturated sugar solution. We were at altitude, but that's the only mitigating factor aside from dumb luck. I spilled that slop all over my hand trying to pour it. Scalding hot stuff. Put hand in cold water and slathered it in a beeswax + almond oil mix. Somehow I didn't burn. My hand was slightly red and tender for about a day (I kept putting more beeswax on it). No peeling, no damage at all really. I still have no idea how I didn't end up with a hospital visit. Sir Cyr sent his cellphone through the laundry that night.

    I'll likely fail my will save at some point. But.... I can try to hold out!
