  1. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Printers are agents of evil. I've spent most of my day trying to get printers to function properly.

    Aye. Grump-brain is very likely wrong. Your phrase is very likely correct.

    *bitter* I hope it is good for all those who want it!

    I've been debating it a bit too. I like seeing painted figures run through my feed, but then the hostility to newbies who need help with primer (and similar things) gets really annoying. No one is hostile about paint jobs, but people get nasty on other topics. Not cool.

    If you go up there I'll refer you to my dad and some of Sir Cyr's family for finding the best food and skiing and fun stuff in the area. My dad is in the Tahoe area, Sir Cyr's family is in Reno and they are the sort that befriend everyone they meet. I don't know how the snow season is this year. Past few years were awful, but last year had 26ft of snow in just January. And I'm jealous about going to see northern lights. I'd love to see that!

    Logically, I don't think my grump-brain is right. It would be a lot of effort to keep track of who the pesterers are and coordinate that with boxes - they probably aren't that coordinated and it would be counter productive. Still irritating though.

    Well the head of the department is begging me to be a TA for a class, starting tomorrow. I guess I probably won't have one semester without teaching. But hey, at least I'm wanted! It would only be one 3hr lab a week plus some grading, but I was kinda hoping to focus on the thesis instead. Oh well. I like teaching!
  8. [SPLIT] CMoN orders

    I am kinda wondering if they are deliberately being slow on repeat-pesterers now, considering my 11/27 order isn't out while others on that date are. I am glad for all getting their stuff, but I spent way too much to wait so darned long.

    My mother's 2nd order got a shipping email. Mine still haven't, but hey, progress.

    My parents encouraged the silly sledding a bit. The porch also had a 10+ft drop to the yard, and it got filled with snow. Parents laughed when a friend jumped into it pencil style and got stuck. She was fine but lost her boot in the process of getting out. Worst I ever did was ski as fast as I could into a SLOW sign, cartoon style. I bounced.

    That's a terrible excuse. I grew up in CA, and can tell you that CA has fabulous snow! The Sierras are a wonderful mountain range for snow. Okay, it sucks a bit when you're not even 4ft tall at 8 years old and have to shovel a driveway that's 5ft deep in snow all by yourself.... but the snow can be fun! One year there was so much snow it was up to the rooftops, so we climbed the roofs and went sledding on them

    I like it unless I have to drive with idiots in it. And I prefer snow when it isn't interfering with a commute. But it is pretty and fun otherwise.
  13. But Ub3r.... DRAGONS!!! I get it for the small-fry stuff, but hotdiggity the dragons!!

    I have this one but it isn't high on my to-paint list right now. Your rendition is great!!

    Lighter hair means it will be easier to dye it cool colors? Bright sides!
