Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

Recommended Posts

Just before making the turn from US-287 to US-380 this afternoon we passed a truck identified as:

DM  TRANSPORTATION

Mental conversation: "Wow!  Somebody is bringing a LOT of accessories for their games at Reapercon."

"Nah.  that can't be possible, but wouldn't it be awesome if it were real?"

Ah, wish work would have let me go today or tomorrow morning instead of evening.  As it is I get to work a full day and then fly to Dallas. It's probably going to be midnight before I get out of the airport.  Maybe I'll see if I can change my return flight to monday...

Are you sure?????

 

I've repacked 3 times today. Keep bouncing between having one or two checked bags. If I consolidate into one bag, I'm at 49.6 pounds & still have a couple last minute things that need to go in.

Apropos of nothing, but the staff at the new Warhammer Cafe in Grapevine, TX didn't even blink at the 2006 ReaperCon t-shirt I wore during my visit there today. No trolling involved, I honestly didn't think about what I was wearing until I saw my reflection in a display cabinet. Nice place, BTW. 

 

Sadly, no ReaperCon this year. We'll be busy getting our little Poolee ready for her "vacation" at Parris Island.

He's not gonna be there this year.::(:

 

There is a glorious contingent of us plebes who can't make it this year.  I'm hoping you guys will keep us filled in with cool news and photos.  

 

If we manage to go again next year I might have to bring a bottle of local brew--we've got both a whiskey and rum distillery in town these days.  ::D:

My pen has betrayed me.

I'm seriously considering redrawing this page because of that. All I've done is ink out the rivers. I haven't even drawn much in pencil. 

 

I just need a new fine point pen...

 

Hard to see problem. It looks like a drop-Shadow coastal boundary? Hmm. But it was supposed to be a very thin line...? Because river not coast??

 

It will bug you everytime you see it, unless —!— you do think of an acceptable happy accident, to transform it into. 

 

Good luck finding new pen. A new pen always inspires.

Well, it's supposed to be a coastline. The rivers are in blue pen. All the rest of my lines are nice and thin. The blob actually got bigger, so nonetheless, I need a new pen. The old one will do it again, and I can't have that.

Grrrf, "new" boss is riding with me tomorrow.  Hope it isn't too awkward of a day, although thankfully it's one of my slower days, assuming I'm able to find parking... 

 

Oh well, got him to have his eyes bulge out, because I got this evil grin and was all "oh, good, tomorrow is full of stairs" then waited several seconds to remind him of just how many elevators there are at the UofA.... :p  Second time I've been evil to a supervisor...  First was when my first supervisor said he liked industrial music... He learned to clarify his statement after I put some Funker Vogt on....

 

Hope he doesn't mind walking, because some buildings I have to park upwards of three blocks away due to construction...

Remember that you will be returning with more stuff than you left with. If you don't have a foldable duffel bag or are planning to buy a second suitcase in Denton, bring two.

 

I usually did the "suitcase inside a suitcase" thing, but I realized that that actually adds a lot of weight to my HUGE suitcase and last year left me scrambling at the check-in counter trying to shove stuff into my carry-on and eventually just paying the extra $25 oversized charge (which is...the same charge as having a second bag). Yeah, not doing that this year. Instead, I got a new suitcase that's smaller than my HUGE one, as well as a collapsible duffel bag to bring all my clothes back in. Also I invested in a luggage scale rather than estimating. I'm a bit concerned that I won't be able to fit everything in going, though, since my carryon is entirely taken up with my costume stuff. I'll break out my second medium suitcase if I have to; the extra $25 is worth not having to deal with all the extra hassle at this point.

 

Huzzah!
