When the new tube of GS arrives,  stash it in the freezer until you need it. ...

Thanks for the tip

8:18 pm, Friday night and I've just been pottering around the garden with a pair of scissors trimming the borders. When did life become so dull

 

Well, you could come over and help with the tile work of you're really bored. Pretty sure some discount airline is doing $199 tickets from London to Denver. I'll even take you to the next CMPA meet up.

Just hangin' out with a beagle in the kiddie pool. Not the beagle, mind you. No water either, but today is cool.

Admiring my nails (teal holo, very rainbow), trying to shake a headache, and snickering (sorry! I giggled! The mental image was funny!) about cow troubles. Never been fond of cows. ^^;

Hot wire might do you better than barbed; no animal much likes being zapped.

 

Chickens will do that too; silly birds. They're safer - more or less - in the yard, but no, they have to go walkabout and get hit or eaten or ... *mutter*

We got old. 

 

Sure. Every now and then I like to cut loose, but I find it far more enjoyable and refreshing to take my scissors out to my garden and cut all the spent heads off of my pansies. 

 

I guess that's what age does to you.

Someone desperately wants to sit on my lap... but a computer is taking more of it.

Yeah, most days I enjoy a night in, but every now and then I get the feeling that the rest of the country is out at the pub. It's a Friday night thing and not ever fully maturing past my 21 year old self

A fine looking hound.

Thanks for the offer but by the time I get to Colarado it will be time to come home.

@Beagle: I'll make sure that you are appropriately harassed if you show up. ::D:

 

It wouldn't have to be just a weekend thing. I might also be able to run you up into some of the national and state parks near here. Running you back down to Denver could happen, too. (Seriously, it's a very pretty area if you are ever looking for a vacation in the mountains.)

I could say something nasty and untrue about it being because you were born English and the mother country has turned dullness into a high art form (as opposed to the American celebration of dimness), but it's really just a homeowner thing.  I spent the brunch hour training Morning Glories.  They're a lot more cooperative about going up ropes than any recruits I ever had to send that direction.  And UK gardening is apparently a terrifying extreme sport:

All you need to go with that is a tab of adderal and a line of coke.

 

for some reason my phone let me change the color of text. So imagine the above is purple.

Kind of you to offer. I'd seriously love to see that. 

Maybe one of these days, if I can just drag myself away from my garden :-)

For some reason I thought cayenne was less hot than habenaro. I will need to use more caution when I harvest them and put them in my fresh salsa.

Example of the husband's humor:

 

We are making dinner and We are discussing if the cheese has a rind that needs to be cut off. 

 

Out of the blue he says: "Did you hear about that new app?"

 

and im suspicious but ask: "What app?"

 

Him: "It's called Rinder, it's an app that hooks you up with the cheese that's right for you."

 

and Im like: "so you swipe right if you're willing to try it, and left if you think it's nasty?"

      So I realized I only had one painted dwarf (!) when one of my GMs asked me if I had anything for the Jadeborn, a race in Exalted that is roughly equivalent to dwarves except for the 0.001% who are roughly equivalent to elves. And they are also sort of stone golems. Based on jade.
       
      I thought Reaper's 60184: Meyanda, Android Priestess, sculpted by Bobby Jackson, would do well for one of the elfy artisan Jadeborn and I pulled out a random assortment of seven (because of course) dwarves for the worker and warrior Jadeborn.
       
      All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
       
      Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
       
      This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.
       
      I left a few crystal and gem areas white so they will have more luminosity later.
       

      Left to right:
      Reaper 60184, Meyanda Android Priestess; Ral Partha; Hasslefree HFD014 Hatherley; Oathsworn Miniatures; Oathsworn Miniatures; Red Box Games; Stonehaven Miniatures; Reaper 14143: Kara Foehunter, Dwarf Hero
       
      Details:

       
      The Ral Partha dwarf is tiny!

      So, I'm a part of a Bi-Monthly Twitter Secret Santa'like Exchange called #BoxofManyThings! I'm doing Miniatures for both of the organizers of it and this is one of them. The individual in question goes by the Handle, owlbare on twitter and uses a Purple Owlbear as his Avatar. So I chose to do up a Cute little Owlbear for him in his signature Colors. These are actually his photos since I forgot to take any! Anywho, hope you enjoy:)

      Rather than clutter up the topic in sci-fi general with the details of how I'm painting these guys, I decided to start a wip thread. 
       
      The plan is to paint all the marines in the primaris half of the new warhammer 40000 starter box.
       
      So far I know the base colors I'm going with are purple armor, silver trim, blue weapons, green lenses. I haven't decided on squad markings or chapter symbol yet. This is of course not the colors of a canonical chapter, so I'm making it up as I go.
       
      I painted two test models just to make sure purple, blue, silver looked ok.

      I speed-painted these over two afternoons to be a party of NPC adventurers for an eclectic mash-up of Exalted and the World of Darkness.  They are 77322, Kassandra of the Blade (sculpted by Werner Klocke); 77405, Aeris, Female Elf Ranger (sculpted by Julie Guthrie); as-yet unnumbered Mythos figures based on 50032: Jake Ryan, Hero Explorer (sculpted by Bobby Jackson) and the Victorian Lord from the set 50326: Victorian Lord & Dame (sculpted by Bob Ridolfi); and 77409, Flara, Elf Heroine (sculpted by Werner Klocke).
       
      WIP thread here.
