Getting to Know You, May 2018

Recommended Posts

We're still going strong! Incredible. It's been a bit, so poke me if I ask a duplicate. I've missed y'all. ^_^ 

 

The roolz:

 

The obligatory rules posting:

 

1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.

1.5. If I fail to post a question, Inara (possibly) will post a question of her own choice.
2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
3.5 (Rule 3 may be the 2nd most broken rule.)
4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.

 

I will be posting late the night before as I won't be awake super early in the morning.

Sausage Cheese Biscuits? (Not really certain what to call them..)

 

Making and bringing are usually beyond my skill set.

Wine? Yes, definitely wine. Cookies are to bring to final exams. Hmm. Snacks for parties... maybe also cheese. Or jalapeno popcorn. 

 

But usually wine.

Does bacon wrapped shrimp count? :ik_oops: Maybe that just counts as a hors d'oeuver. 

 

Cheese and crackers.

 

Chips and salsa.

 

Wait, no...

 

Loaded baked potato skins.

 

Or maybe...

 

 

 

I can't pick a favorite!!!!!!

To make: Lasagna. Not because I try to make it a party, but because I don't know how to make a small lasagna. So a lasagna ends up necessitating a party as I call people up and invite them over to help me eat the average 10-12 pounds of lasagna. A party just sort of happens as people bring beer and food and themselves...

 

To bring: Cookies. The number of people I know who did not grow up with homemade cookies is staggering. So I toss together some average chocolate chip cookies and it turns into this big emotional thing and it's... I dunno, it's gratifying. And kind of sad.

 

To eat: Food I didn't have to make. Or if I had to make it, Hunk O' Meat. It's hard to beat a Hunk O' Meat cooked just right and eaten with the hands all barbaric-like.

 

That's something I miss about Los Angeles. Not anything involving the city itself but my brother. Whenever he and I got the house to ourselves we'd bring out the beer and then a whirlwind of activity and suddenly we have a giant pot of macaroni and cheese, a platter of burgers, a roast beef, stuffed mushrooms, grilled onions and corn and zucchini, noodles with cabbage, home cooked bread, maybe a 12 pound lasagna, and we have no idea what just happened.

All the noms!

 

Seriously though, when I went to gaming sessions I liked to bring new things to try out. Because of my diabetes I was never able to eat an entire bag of chips, but I also didn't want the rest to go to waste. Fortunately, I had many other players who had no problem with me sharing. ::):

 

At home I like to have some kind of meat or mixed nuts, though I may be odd when I consider a steak to be a snack.

Homemade jalapeno poppers and sandwich cake. And frog eye salad.

This sounds like holidays at my Aunt's house with Dad's family. Trays of bierocks covering every available surface (including the cars in the garage), helping dad roll a triple batch of orange bow knots and kase wirenica, case verineca, (whatever, the cottage cheese stuffed ravioli that were boiled, then fried in butter). Yum, yum!

That is sad. And it’s not that difficult either...we made these iced molasses crinkles on Sunday:

Spicey Oriental Snack Sized Sausauge Rolls.

Mixing Ground Beef with some dried Nasi Goreng Veggies, Garlic and Sambal Badjak, put that in small Puff Pastry squares, glaze with egg and bake in oven at 220 celsius for 25 minutes.

Deviled Eggs.  That reminds me to get Deviled Egg Potato Salad today when we shop. Not as good as DE, but better than regular PS.

Make: Hmmm, probably anything with chocolate. Cupcakes, cookies, something like that.

Bring: Beer.

Eat: I'll second the deviled eggs. I love them, but have never made them and sadly, Mrs. Gargs does not like them, so not likely to get made by us all that often.

I love ttuckerman's deviled eggs, but my favorite has to be my erstwhile friend, Karen's  onion dip. It was SO GOOD that after more than twenty years it sings in my memory.

Freakin' love me some sausage rolls. I've made some using my meatloaf recipe before and it was amazing.

My go-to for party food to make is probably deviled eggs. I like to mix up the seasonings pretty regularly.

To eat, I'm all over a cheese board/antipasto platter if there is one.

Can I say stew?  Stew's a "snack" right, even if it's "let's see if the crock pot finally says screw you and dies because of how much stuff you crammed into it stew"?  ::P:  Love making it, not too fond of the bill of materials though.

 

I used to absolutely love making brownies back in the day, but ever since moving into this tiny lil apartment I don't really do much in the way of baking.

      You thought you were rid of me... you thought "Thanks Gygax's Leather Dice Bag, July is over and we're through with Crowley's stupid questions!"
       
      YOU WERE ONLY HALF RIGHT!
       
      July IS over, but I HAVE MORE STUPID QUESTIONS!!
       
      Now, as a reminder, the obligatory rulze posting:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and take my place... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)

      Hey all! Time for the 2018 ReaperCon Forumite Bingo! So, those of you who were on the cards last year, or got a card last year know how the game works, so you can skip the next paragraph.
       
      What is Forumite Bingo? It's a convention game I came up that is generally well received so I will do it again this year. The game is just like what a bingo game would be, but rather than calling out numbers to fill your card, you must go around and introduce yourself to members of the forum who are on your card. Say hi to them, and you can cross their box off. Once you've made "bingo", return to me for your Bingo ribbon. Blackout isn't required, but several people did it for the grins. And there's nothing to 'prove' you met those who you have said you have, just the honor system. You only punish yourself by cheating yourself out of meeting wonderful people.
       
      Last year there were more volunteers than spaces, so not every one was on every card, and hopefully there will be enough volunteers again this year. It made for a good variety. So, this thread is not for signing up to receive a card to play. This is a signup for people who are willing to be on a card. The cards will be freely handed out at the convention. Just come find me, and potentially my wife who may have my materials. Be aware, volunteering to be on the card will mean that complete strangers will be coming up to meet you, and they may not be actually signed up and be on this forum. That happened more often than I thought it would last year. If that makes you uncomfortable, then reconsider volunteering.
       
      So, the ground rules:
       
      I exclude the Reaper peeps since they are all pretty accessible. The game's purpose is to meet the less visible and vocal forum members. I will continue that. Sorry peeps, we love ya, but I feel that's best. The free square in the middle will be me, since everybody has to meet me to get the card it seems the fairest way. You must be going to ReaperCon to be on the card please! And if possible, the full Thursday to Saturday at least. It's unfair to those whose card you are on if you don't show, or are a Saturday only person. I will not exclude you if you are a Saturday only (or similar) limited attendee. However, people who have you on their cards will get to cross you off without meeting you if you aren't there when they need you for bingo. By replying with the information below, you are giving your permission to use the picture provided and your name provided, and to be inundated with people introducing themselves to you. Once I've printed the cards (much closer to the con than I want), they are set in stone. I can't remove people from the cards, and they're a bit pricey to just toss. Plans change, life happens, and if you become a no-show, you simply become a gimme square and are crossed off automatically by those who need your square. It already happened once and well, it will probably happen again. We'll just roll along in those cases. Signups will be open from now until August 15th. That gives me a mere two weeks to randomize the cards and have them printed on card stock. I'll get a mod to lock this thread on that date, and once the thread is locked, no more volunteers will be accepted. One does not need to be very active on these forums to be on the card, but it helps people to recognize you. But I will not turn away anybody that isn't very active if they really want to be on the card. If there's a question about any of these numbered questions, please quote the text since the numbering is automatic and I can't control it if there's an insertion. I will update these rules as questions and issues come up.  
      All ready to sign up? Good! Here's what you need to do. Reply to this thread with:
      The name you want to use. I prefer your forum handle, so people might have some idea of who you are. They can always write your real name across the square as a way of crossing you off, but it's up to you what name to have on the card. What picture you wish to use for your square. Again, I prefer your forum picture, but if you are someone who changes it often, I might grab one that isn't current so having you explicitly give me one helps. What days you will be at ReaperCon. I'll put the days you won't be there on the square, and this will help us know if your are there that day or not. I'm only using Thursday thru Sunday, with Wednesday as a simple bonus day.  
      This is optional, but if you could also send a recent picture of your actual self via PM to me, I'd appreciate it. Something like a full on face shot, without costume. I plan to have a "cheat sheet" of sorts to help myself remember who is who. This way I can help direct people to those members they're still needing to collect. My brain isn't wired to put names to faces easily, and being tired from the Con won't help that. So, having something I can use to point the way will help. Again, this is optional.
       
      I think that's it for now. See you all in a month!

      The year is halfway over! What do you want to achieve this month?
       
      Here's my list:
       
      - Get blog going again.
      - Finish editing photos from last November >.<
      - Paint Bones Sphinx (by August 4).
      - Figure out how many other projects I have to do (that aren't already on the table) and give them time lines.
      - Figure out a giveaway for 1000 followers on IG.
