    I admire you. for me, four hours counts as a “speed paint”

    A big difference for me is level of effort. As I improve, I often find it very hard to “turn off” my competition brain. Even when trying to paint 10 similar models for a unit, who will never be seen individually or looked at from closer than 18” away, I’m still in there blending and playing with “advanced” techniques. I could produce the elf army I painted 20 years ago in half the time than I did the first time, except that it would be hard to keep from aiming for double the quality instead. Hence my colossal, dire shelf of shame.

    So very much this. I am a display painter with delusions of painting armies.

    Backed: many Created: none the first Kickstarter I ever backed was the Order of the Stick reprint drive in 2012, followed by Bones I. After those two wild rides, I was pretty hooked for a while.

    Are you sure these people aren't just super serious about their "raw food" diets? Here in Boston, "Drive Safely" is more an expression of wishful thinking. We know you'll drive like an angry maniac, but it it can't hurt to hope, right?

    My parent's main bathroom still has an iron claw-foot tub. I kinda like it. The other stuff? Not so much.

    Existing, or fictional? I like my current car, and I picked it because it had a really good balance of trade-offs for what I wanted. (AWD for winter snow, Smaller and more fuel efficient than my previous car, still zippy and fun to drive, still holds 3 gamer-scale passengers reasonably comfortably, etc.) In retrospect, I wish I had opted for a better sound system, because I can actually notice the difference between sound quality in this car and my last one. On the flip side, this car is, hands down, the best speaker phone I have ever owned.) In fantasy dream land, most of those things could be improved, but it's harder to achieve in the real world. It would be nice for it to be magically self-cleaning too.

    The existence of winter notwithstanding, I have, on more than one occasion, pointed out to West Coast friends that our little slice of the North Atlantic can actually be downright pleasant to swim in for 2-3 months of the year. A feature not shared with the San Francisco Pacific coast.

    While I am, technically, sitting in an office that is within a quarter mile, or less, of the harbor, and by extension, the Atlantic Ocean, I think I'm gonna have to pass.
  10. Best things to happen to me? 1. Got married, amidst a gathering of friends and family 2. Landed funding for our company so I could start getting paid again. (Bonus: This happened 3 months before the wedding bills started coming due.) I have no special plans for New Year's Eve. Lady Klarg and I will most likely stay in, and toast the year with a glass of something sparkling.

    For a split second, I misread this, and thought it was your thumb that was sliced away. I'm glad you're in one piece. Also, kudos for posting so calmly with blood gushing from your mangled hand.

    There seems to be a lot of this going around.
  13. Attend ReaperCon Try to exercise more than zero hours per week Allocate at least an hour or two of hobby time per week
  14. In general, I try to start each meal with food that has not already been consumed and digested. Tuesday was no different. To answer the actual spirit of the question, not really. While we ate well, it was all pretty familiar. Roast pork, braised greens, and rice.
