ub3r wonders why Jay always talks about himself in the third person... but then the thought is fleeting and he decides to guzzle more coffee and take a dip in his mini-filled pool to relax!

Remember the cowl that I wear, and that I am "a watcher, and a Recorder"... my brain works like a slide bar.

So I am always observing myself, and every thing around me.

Its probably a bad habit (oh terrible pun); but then, that is moi.

Jay

 

Heh, just giving you a hard time, my friend!  ^_^

I was assuming he was given the title because he needs a filter.

 

 

ETA: I think ub3r will know I'm kidding, but let's add in a ::P: just to be sure.

I have modified my signiture to reflect what I think is what I believe.

I think this is a better Latin phrase/motto:

Colligo vivere in aeternum.

*Steps in lightly* 

*shuffles feet through piles of miniatures* 

 

Oh no my OCD is kicking in, This place looks great... 

 

*Closes eyes and walks out*

 

LOL

 

I once threatened to glue all several units of my roommates 40k guys to the ceiling.   And here is the kicker- one guyin each unit would be out of square, or facing the wrong way or from the wrong army.

 

its that kicker that really would have driven him insane.

I'm sure we'll get to a Procrastinus room.. oh who am I kidding.. hahahahahahaha

anyone ambitious enough to start a room probably doesn't really belong in procrastius

 

Unless we were supposed to do something else.

 

Our house philosophy is simple, yet subtle.

 

Yes, if a thread for our house if ever started, you know we were supposed to be painting. Now that I think of it, there is a mini exchange finishing up soon......

Here is strange new thought:  

My college roommate played GW:  40k, fantasy, and tiny army scale.  All of which were painted.  I never saw him painting. He would even acquire new things and show up with them painted in his armies colors.   I think they matched at least, his OCD tendencies would not have permitted otherwise. 

 

Was he really spending every vacation frantically painting new acquisitions? Or paying a painter?  The size of his forces was impressive enough just based on the number and variety, and in 3 different games. I never had the impression that his family was rich, As it was a state school after all and his brother was on an ROTC scholarship. 

 

This is going to bug me, I wish I was still in touch with him.

I am trying to get done grading, but keep getting distracted with other things (like the forum). If I can finish at a reasonable time I can paint...or buy more minis online or something.

Can I be the official Natural Selection Prevention Specialist for our house?

I figured, between working the ER and painting, it's all I do!

*pokes head in*

 

We've got a frostgrave game going across the hall. Some D&D. Someone's playing 40k, and there are a couple of shame faced people even playing age of sigmar if you can believe that. Feel free to come on by if you get tired of sitting on pointy things. 

I'm not one of them:mellow:

 

[[  ...searches for door to Tabletop common room...  rolls d6 ...searches... rolls d6 ...searches... rolls d6... ]]

 

It was tough to choose which house because I could have qualified for any of them. I have 20 buckets of minis, 20 boxes as well, I have done and enjoy doing crazy conversions, I have 20 started but unfinished minis, I have at least that many started but unfinished terrain projects, and my painting skills have developed devolved to tabletop at best.

 

I picked TableTop because I liked the chess-knight best.

 

nb: the nickname for The House Tabletop Common room ought to be "the gameroom".

I taught half a course of college as an expert in History, I vowed I WOULD NEVER step up to a lectern again.

College students drove me to distraction, I can't imagine what you are dealing with.

I just know I relished the ability to say "GET OUT" and I tossed out a lot of idiots in the first day's of my teaching.

I have also graded "National Test's" and I have to admit, I finally quit because I became so depressed that I was afraid

that the number of 0's I was giving out, was going to drive me over the edge of sanity.

"I are doing fin fur me and my babie" written by a 15 year old, did me in..
