Oh!  This is huge!  So my (adopted) 8yo told me a couple nights ago that I was the best dad he's ever had.   

As far as father figures go I'm the fourth he's had, so from him this actually means something!

 

That's a great compliment!

You seem to do something right.

 

So...almost end of workday.

I've been to the gym as well and will go again tomorrow.

I need it! My body refuses to function as I wish it sometimes.

Aching shoulder, tired etc...

Dropping a pit fiend on the deck of a ship and then sending you home?

 

That's... different...

I am envious of all the beloved parents and lovers and candyeaters glowing warmly out there in the cold void today. Truly your existence between the stars is blessed.

Today has this "its going to be 'fun' vibe" about it....  Doesn't snow for two days... Snows, and people freak out.

I am glad not to be a teenager today.  Nothing as awkward as Valentine's Day at the high school.

My daughter just baked a bunch of cookies for a bunch of her friends (12 of them I think) and called it good.

I distinctly remember the dances being more awkward, but that was just me.  I was a loner when it wasn't lunch time, so people left me alone.  Then again, growling at them if they're trying to be all "omg Valentine's!" works too ::P:

Lulz I generally had pretty hip 'n' happening Valentine's Days as a kid, but I'd take even the gloomier ones in trade for being a teenager again.

 

 

Ah, youth.

I build armies all the time, just for fun and display to give me an excuse to paint and include whatever I want.

Not playing a game with it also means I can base and do what I want.

 

 

While there is no reason not to paint whatever groups you like, I’ve always been an advocate of rules that aren’t manufacturer-exclusive. Sets like WRG’s Hordes of the Things or Osprey’s Dragon Rampant allow you plenty of scope for customization, and have army sizes under 60 figures (for the most part) making building them in pairs or sets practical. Any set’s basing guidelines become optional when you are providing all the troops. Solo play can be fun if opponents are a problem....

 

My next push is going to be a super-retro Tolkien thing with original 1972 vintage Minifigs like I started with a year or two later. I should start a running WIP thread...

 Nice... There's a complete set of Grenadier 2005 Fighting men in the collection, with only one broken weapon - which is cool because I happen to have the box for that set already.

Well, a bowl of cheerios for breakfast isn't cutting it; I think an early lunch may be in order.
