  1. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Thanks. One of those situations where I couldn’t have lived with myself if I’d done nothing. But I really hate this bald look, I really hope I never lose my hair
  2. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Back home after 3 days in hospital with 16 stitches in the back of my head. I intervened in an attempted mugging in Southwark, London. Managed to drop the guy carrying out the attack with a right hook, but as I was pinning him to the floor I discovered that there wasn't just one guy and his companion smacked me across the back of the head with a rock. Fortunately some other people intervened and one of the attackers ran off while the other was arrested. For some reason, rather than just shaving the back of my head the nurses took all of my hair off. I'm not happy, it doesn't suit me.
  3. Snow - super melt

    They do, given that most of them have spent their life in cages, until they're fostered, I hope it feels like a piece of heaven for them. I have a particularly sick one called Belle at the moment (1 of 5 I'm overwhelmed with), who's lungs are wrecked. She comes on the walks with us but I take a pushchair with me that she gets transferred to when she can't keep up and goes all wheezy. She's only 3
  4. Snow - super melt

    I've been busy at work so haven't had a chance to post sooner. We had a quite a heavy (for us), fall of snow at the beginning of last week, but by last weekend it started to thaw and I took some of our beagles out for a final play in the snow. The photos below were taken within the same hour, the temperature rose by about ten degrees and the snow just disappeared. It was like one of those pieces of film where they speed up the footage to show time passing. Very weird. I make the walk regularly, from the village I live in to the neighbouring Betchworth, there are lots of little country paths intersecting and one particular path that runs by a farm gate and next to which I always expect to find a table laden with pork pies and jugs of cider, with hobbits selling their wares. I'm always disappointed that the tables never there and I always feel thirsty thinking about that cider.
  5. Happiness is ...

    A 5 star hotel, a Hungarian blonde and a complimentary drinks cabinet. Oh, and some warm slippers
  6. Well if you don't want to bin any of it, send the box on to me first and I'll sort it out.
  7. Or just take out some extra for yourself, or to donate to your local charity shop
  8. Dragon Lords: Grenadier miniatures

    Does anyone else think that the prices they’re asking for are too high, given that they already have the molds etc ?
  9. Confrontation: Classic - Coming April

    But did you like it?

  12. Hitting the big 40

    Surely 40 is ancient for a goblin?
  13. Hitting the big 40

    Hitting 40: - Suddenly noticed that my knees could hurt as a result of sleeping - An evening down the pub with mates required a table to sit at and departure just as the all-night crowd were arriving. - Students became irritating - Gardening was no longer irritating
  14. Black Rose Wars

    I sort of preferred when all of my miniature-buying options were wrapped up in the 200 miniatures produced by Citadel
