Feeling the slow stuff tonight...

 

 

 

 When I was in the banana farm my senior year of high school, there was a guy in there with me who'd had his girlfriend die in his arms of a crack overdose, and the song "Please Dear" by Faster Pussycat always reminded of him...

One of my poems, "Wish You Were here" was inspired by that incident.

 Yeesh. It's 4 am... Why am I not sleeping? :wacko: And now I'll have to go eat something before I can go to bed since it's been about seven hours since dinner and if I don't eat something it'll mess up my stomach all day tomorrow....

I'm getting orf me arf and going the hell to bed. Right after I punch myself in the head for staying up so late when I have things to do tomorrow.

Yeah, and it's not really the ideal indicator of fitness.  I mean, my blood pressure is usually pretty darned low.  Even with the new metric I don't have high blood pressure.  I am still definitely overweight by more than a little and really need to address my fitness.  But my blood pressure is FINE.  

 

That's me too. Super unhealthy, rather chubby, but my blood pressure is always around 120/80.

Raisins are grapes that failed at life. They didn't even succeed at being a succulent snack. They most certainly didn't succeed at becoming wine. They're the husks of the lowest tier of grapedom. 

Hey now, it depends on the raisins. Those tiny boxes the evil health minded people passed out for Halloween that always had a dry, nearly crunchy raisins are awful. But moist raisins are delightful. Concentrated grape goodness.

I keep sixpacks of small 42.5gram boxes of raisins in a desk drawer at work. They're just great as an afternoon 'pick me up' and hunger dampener before the end of the day. (Never go grocery-shopping while hungry... )

As long as the plastic wrap is untouched they can be stored for ages, but after I take one box I need to finish the other 5 in a week or so, before they start drying out.

 

The tiny 'halloween portion' boxes aren't sealed in plastic, so they allow the contents to dry out. 

Just yet another reason to ban Halloween...

You know what I love, but which is going to make me sound like an old person? Prunes. Prunes are delicious.

 

Can't wait for next week. Two 12 hour shifts at work, then 5 days off. Then, next month, I get almost 2 weeks off for the cost of like 3 or 4 days of vacation time.

I like oatmeal raisin cookies so long as they are moist and chewy and preferably have some walnuts as well.  I'm not super fond of regular raisins by themselves but I like 'golden' raisins.

"Don't yuck another's yum."

 

Sorry, keep your chocolate chips out of my oatmeal cookies. Can't stand chocolate in my oatmeal cookies. I prefer the raisins. To each, their own.

 

Big, ooey, gooey, soft, and warm oatmeal raisin cookies are awesome to me.

 

Don't like pineapple on your pizza, don't add it. Don't like pie? Don't eat it.

 

I've had what amounts to apple streudel on a pizza crust. It's awesome.

 

And prunes are good, too. Craisins aren't too bad, but just not in my oatmeal cookies.

 

Now, dried apple in oatmeal cookies is something I need to explore.

Don't know about dried apple but applesauce mixed into the oatmeal cookie batter works.

No doubt. Chainmail is not a great choice for protection against blunt force trauma.

All this week I've been staying up far too late even if we hadn't had the DST time change.

 

Today is the kid's 8th birthday.  We're four months shy of the fifth anniversary of his placement with us and four years since his adoption.  He's been My Son in all the ways that matter for nearly all those five years.

 

But man, when early trauma becomes an Anxiety Firehose and manifests itself in spoiled ingratitude, let's just say I'm glad he's at school and I'm at work.

We call chainmail bruises "hamburger bruises" in the SCA because of their tendency to have the pattern of packaged ground beef. And yep, chain does absolutely nothing against blunt objects. It's great for keeping you from getting sliced up, but the only thing it's doing for the actual impact is maybe slowing it down a fraction just because chain is heavy and supposed to hang somewhat loose on you. You still feel like someone hit you with a club though.

      ^^ So that's the link to the WIP thread for this guy.
       
      He did not turn out to be a fastish paint job. He turned into my experiment.
       
      I put more work into highlighting the hair than I usually do. I got his bald dome more shiny than I have for past skin tones. I've done bits of freehand before, but this is the first fabric pattern freehand I've done (turned out a bit thicker than I would have preferred, but I still like it). 
       
      First NMM for me ever. I may have been better off with a classic sword or straight line sort of thing, but ehh... this turned out okay for a first shot, I think. The axes took 3-4 hours 
       
      And for good measure, I scuffed up his boots in the "sand", and put a shadow of him on the sand. 
       
      I got my nice camera rolling, but not I am re-learning it. Got a diffused ring LED attached to it for lighting. Just a piece of gray-blue construction paper in the background. 
       
      Comments, critiques, shrieks of "what in the heck is this junk?!" all welcome!

      tl;dr:  I'm painting bunnies!! (and other critters)
       
      I'm finally wrapping up my painting projects left over from December, so I guess it is time to finally decide on some things to paint in 2017.
      One of my goals for this year is to actually play some of the games I've bought figs for.
      So far finding time to get a minis game going with the gaming group has been rather slow...been passing around the Frostgrave book since the fall, everyone seems interested, but haven't moved beyond that yet.
      So, moving on to my other potential person to play against, my wife. While she like playing games, so far she hasn't found time to read the quick start rules for CAV:SO I put on her phone last summer, and her Rach army remains unpainted.
      So perhaps something...cute and furry....
       
      Burrows and Badgers seems like a perfect fit, and I've been dying to start painting them.  I've been slowly reading through the rules (the only time I ever seem to find time to read these days is when I go to bed, but then reading rules makes me sleepy...(no Michael, it's not your writing, I have partially read CAV:SO, Counterblast, MERCS and Timewatch sitting beside the bed too  )).
      And the other night I showed her pics of all the figs from the first two kickstarters. And she seemed interested.But now the problem is she wants all my Bunnies....
      Also, all the figs are 1 piece, so we can play even before all the figs are painted (I know they won't roll as well, but it will help with learning the rules).
      And I get to paint all the awesome terrain Jo has made for B&B (and I may pull some out of the other Oathsworn boxes too).
      And as a bonus, if/when we get to playing Frostgrave, I'm making a warband out of B&B figs.
       
      So, I will dig out the figs and get a picture over the next few days, then get some figures prepped for painting.
       
      Now where to start??   Maybe rats.....I don't want to do the bunnies until I get a few under my belt...

      This was a commission piece and one of the fastest I've ever done. Hope you guys like it.
       

       

       
      Here is the WIP for this piece
    • By Arc 724
      60182: Hakon, Iconic Skald
      Sculpted by Bobby Jackson
       
      This is another commission piece for me. The character in the Patherfinder game we are play is a Ranger who throws axes. He liked this figure so much he bought it on the spot! Said he wanted it to have a kind of coloration at Boba Fett. So I'm working from that, kind of.
       
       
       
      Edit: I sculpted the base my self. It's just a simple brick pattern.

      Hi again,
       
      still working on more Ral Partha dwarves, and here are my last two additions, two dwarves with axes, but one kind of a barbarian feel, decked out in furs and a bit of scale mail, and the other one more of a rank and file dwarf, kind of skinny and in a coat of chainmail.  I'm enjoying painting these dwarves actually, as it keeps torturing me with different armors and keeps me working on the NMM.
       
      The barbarian dwarf was kind of interesting in that I could get the white of his eyes on the left eye in, but couldn't reach it for a pupil, as he's got these big, shaggy eyebrows.  Made it a bit challenging, but I don't think it's very noticeable, especially at these angles and the other eye was very easy to do and reach.
