You probably wouldn't like my tampande then.  Manzanilla and kalamata olives, roasted red peppers and garlic diced finely (I use a food processor).  Make a great spread along with some pub cheese on slices of French bread.

I'll try most things once. But probably I'd just like the cheese. ::P:

Texture. Olive texture is just weird to me. If a recipe calls for them minced into something perhaps. In a piece that requires smashing between teeth or rolling on the tongue? Not into it. Maybe I'll give it a go next time someone offers me a slice with it. Free pizza is good pizza, yeah? 

 

Some of my friends with texture issues with olives also dislike mushrooms for similar reasons.

I'm definitely a smell and texture person. I can't do bananas on either front. Smell is kinda like rotten other fruit. Texture is almost-mush and it is confusing.

I used to not like mushrooms, but I'm alright with them now to an extent. I like them chopped thin and used as flavor sponges. I make a really good mushroom wine sauce to go with steak. Just a big button mushroom? Nope. 

 

Stuff like corn and green beans are kinda great. They have various layers that I can pull apart with my teeth and it is terribly entertaining. Edamame too. Citrus? Heck yeah.

 

I swear cheese, mushrooms, bell peppers.... so many things just taste different when sliced thin as opposed to in big hunks. *shrug*

Now you didn't have to bring Shrimp into the mix...

*** Drools ***

Though, I admit, my wife and most people I know find my enjoyment of eating the entire shrimp somewhat disturbing.

I guess I like different textures and tastes...

mmm shrimp can be yummy. Not always. But good ones are sooooo good. 

 

Oh yeah tomatoes are weird. Love the flavors. But I'll only eat raw ones cut, and cooked onces pureed pretty much. Soggy tomato chunks are icky (I'll swallow them whole if I have to eat them). And biting into whole tomatoes or cherry tomatoes has an odd "gush". Sliced with salt and basil and mozzerella? SO GOOD.

I have bad Fried Jumbo Shrimp at a Chinese restaurant once.  Was sick for two days.  I was about 10 year old. 

 

I now eat a shrimp occasionally just to prove to myself that I can.  The rest of the time, Awesome Wife gets any shrimp I am served.  She is most appreciative.

Unfortunately I have had very bad luck with pho. I love soup and pho but bad batches have made me sick and emptying myself within 30mins of eating. Multiple times ::(:

And... nevermind. Broccoli-face is in the office again. Oh well. 

Broccoli gets steamed. I'm just saying.

This broccoli doesn't recognize when the good natured kale, cabbage, and bok choy think he's got aphids for brains.

      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.
