  1. Getting to Know You, April 2018

    Here's my current day Don't expect something fancy But still a haiku Replying to post. Can't drink my tea, it's too hot. Waiting for lunch break. Kickstarter's not here No mail notification. Refreshing... F5 Broke a fingernail My nail clipper is back home. Pocketknife will do. Reading the flyer Ooh, ground beef is on special! Groceries tonight. Need a new cellphone Those prices are outrageous I'll get a used one Six hours to go Then it's a three day weekend But I got no plans

    Good question. Nothing really comes to mind that stands out more than others. I'm generally not an impulse buyer and do a lot of research in what I need, so I seldom regret my choices. Maybe those novelty spherical d6s I bought ages ago. They got annoying after a minute. Good question. Nothing really comes to mind that stands out more than others.

    My reusable cups are generic Chinese plastic cups with lid and mesh filters, not an official Keurig K-Cup. They just happened to be there in the general store. The model machine we have is the basic K200. I'm guessing they purchased whatever was available in town. Some parts of the office building/plant do have traditional drip coffee machine, but not in my neck of the woods.

    Holy carp! I haven't looked into this in months. Not sure if dead or alive anymore. I really should post something.

    I AM ANARCHY INCARNATE!!! You thought you won this battle MEGACORP , but I was far craftier than you gave me credit for. So the new reusable Keurig cups I bought last week, which said on the package were 2.0 compatible, turned out *not* to be compatible with the office Keurig 2.0 machines. The machine's DRM refuses my rebellious cup (it fits, but it's not on the "approved" list of brewers). So I took a discarded K-cup, removed the foil lid and taped it on my reusable one. Works like a charm. [Sips from a hot cup of VICTORY! Burns tongue in celebration. The price of freedom.]

    Said the "Paradoxical" poster: Sounds like my week day. The urge to paint is most powerful when at work. But once home, everything else lures me away.

    Hobbies! In my mind, my ideal hobby rooms would be the same akin to an ideal study. In the middle of the room is a big heavy gaming table, stain resistant to any cola spills, gravy or cheesy snack fingers. May have an embedded screen or a projector on top. On one wall a large book case with wooden/glass doors. All my board games on one side, RPGs on the other, minis on display in the middle. On the opposite wall is the workshop where I sit down and paint, glue, drill, cut, sculpt or fiddle with anything I' working on. A sound system with speakers on all corners to play mood music, or the radio. A large screen TV that is works as home theatre or doubles as a gaming aid. Enough lights to completely eliminate all shadows, but can be turned down to a single intimate spotlight, according to my needs. Comfy stackable/folding chairs. Guests will *not* have a sore bottom, and the chairs will be easy to move and/or store. Last wall will be a big bay window, with blinds that will let as much or as little sunlight as we need. Somewhere, there will be a mini-fridge with a coffee machine on top of it. We'll have all the hot and cold beverages we need.

    Of course not, you're BRILLIANT. Literally! Reading posts with that much glitter is blinding. But I always get lured by the aroma of bacon.
  10. Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    Just seeing Reaper Ron post something is a big announcement in itself.
  11. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Hooray! There needs to be a Reaper 10K club for those who stuck around that long. Either because they are an active contributing individual, or just can't STFU. The Rampancy thread sort of muddles the water.

    They're not the only ones. The weather is simply awful this month. It's bad enough that schools are shutting down. Despite being in Canada, snow days in April are almost unheard off.

    Done them over two weeks ago, before I moved. Being Canadian, I still have two weeks if I wanted to.
  14. Artis Opus - Series S: Brush Set

    Any details on the specific dimensions of the brushes? Specific lengths, width, belly size/shape, etc. Remembering browsing through Rosemary & Co, brush dimensions were all over the place depending on what you wanted, and it had little relation to brush sizes as I could find a size 0 in one line bigger than a size 1 in another. Otherwise, yeah, better wait for reviews *after* the campaign, at the higher retail price. Makes me wonder who the target market is as there are plenty of alternatives and variation.

    I got a referral for a colonoscopy this week (I *asked* for it because of family history), so I know the same thing will happen to me in several months. I remember my dad referring to stuff like Moviprep (Peg-Lyte for him) as "Kool-Aid flavoured Drano".
