    Getting to Know You, Feb 2019

    Here in frozen Ottawa, there is a family-owned German chocolatier that has been around for decades. They make amazing chocolate and cakes, all in house. Simply amazing. Otherwise, the stuff you get from Purdy's (chain of fancy chocolate) is pretty darn good too. Their "Turtles" equivalent are mouth-wateringly delicious!

    Meh. We use it as an excuse to have a quiet dinner in, but we do it at least once a month anyway, so it's more of a hassle with the kids having to prep valentines for school. We celebrating the anniversary of our first date on Jan 31 (18 years now) and her birthday is Feb 4, so there are much more important reasons to celebrate.

    Raise your hand if it's snowing

    Some sunlight is peaking through the clouds now. All schools are closed, we had to work from home. We got a good 35+ cm of snow over night. I've dug out twice already today and will likely have to do it once more before tonight.

    Yes, I did.

    Congrats!! As others, I'm a little jealous... 10 or so years to go for me. May your new days be filled with everything you hope for, and more!

    Getting to Know You, Feb 2019

    Facebook as it's a way I keep in touch with friends all over the globe. Youtube for some crafting and cooking stuff and that's about it. I have never Insta-ed a single Gram, Tweeted a single tweet, snaped a chat or whatever else is in these days... (starting to feel old and out of touch with these things).

    If I have time at home, French Press, otherwise it's pod. At my desk at work, pod or whatever the local coffee makers have for sale (we have a mall with starshmucks, Timothy's, Tim Hortons (gag...) and several smaller, independent coffee vendors to pick from when one needs a caffeinated walk.

    Feb 1st: My wife and daughter's birthdays next week and the hope that my wife will get a new job as the current one is stressing her out. Weekend Quest: Xmas Rasputina crew from Malifaux (evil Xmas tree and snowmen). Pics to follow.

    Raise your hand if it's snowing

    We got another dump of the lovely white stuff yesterday. Cleared our driveway but of course the city plow came by in the middle of the night and they actually did a reasonable job of clearing the street, but this means that the mounds of snow at the end of my driveway are almost as tall as I am as they also pushed back the snowbanks a little. Got enough shoveled this morning so my wife could get the kids to school, but the worst is waiting for me when I get home. And of course it's -20 again. didn't help that I think half my FB friends were on a variety of trips South, all posting pics on the beach...

    Munchkin Dungeon by CMON

    Usually the starting price point is closer to $100, whereas here it's $60, $90 for the full set. Compared to the $100/$150 for Zombicide: Invader, it's going to be slower right out of the gate. It's also a very different style of minis, which may not be for everyone.
  11. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/munchkin-dungeon/posts/2400492 Couldn't find a post on this... Minis look cool, in keeping with Kovalic's art, and the feel is right. Just not sure I need a mini-based version of Munchkin on top of the few I already have. Price seems reasonable though it is another CMON project and I'm still waiting for "Zombicide in Space", a project on which there has been very little communication.

    Another Year of Mushrooms has begun...

    I love the mushrooms! Can't ever get enough of them!
  13. Many thanks for this. My brother has developed a pretty strong tremor in his hands and can only steady them if he holds them together, but gripping the more traditional holders tired him very quickly, leading him to more or less drop his painting hobby. Will be sharing this with him (after I cobble one or 2 up for him of different sizes) and hopefully get him back into painting.

    Getting to know you: January 2019

    I would love one, but at this point it's a long-term plan. Maybe in the next 3-5 years. I'm not sure there would be room left for the wife and the kids in the house if I was able to print up stuff on demand...

    Raise your hand if it's snowing

    After my home trek took an extra 45minutes, it only took 90 minutes to clear my driveway and clean up the mess the plow made (a car had parked on the street just past my driveway so I had a very interesting snow wave to sort out. The freezing rain started just as I was finishing up last night and the driveway this morning was a solid sheet of ice. More snow in the forecast over the next several days too. At least the winter was pretty mild up until now...
