June 8: Are you in any clubs or organizations? Have you started any?

 

Thanks again, TGP! 

 

I am a (lapsed) member of the New England Miniature Painters Association.

Hopefully fixing the "lapsed" part later this month

 

I am not a member of anything with stricter membership requirements than that. (i.e. showing up)

Currently:

CMPA (Colorado Miniature Painters Alliance) - I even have a membership card, though we don't really do that any more. And there are no dues, offices or officers, official memberships, .... Come by next Saturday and you can join and paint with us, though.

 

Life membership in the IFGS, which, since I don't LARP any more, means that once or twice a year I get a ballot that I'm not willing to buy a stamp to return.

 

I didn't renew my membership to the BSA when it expired this spring because my son has aged out and 10 years was enough. I might sign up as a merit badge counselor again, though.

 

Many other organizations over the years, but those are the recent ones.

No, not really. Also no.

 

I'm hoping my membership to the 'I'm not good enough to paint that' club gets revoked soon, though.

You are a member of NEMPA.

 

I was one of the early members of the first incarnation of NEMPA (I missed the first session at LadyStorms house) and I was one of the ones who reinstated it into it current form (and I take all the blame).

 

I am also a member of the Submarine Veterans Association.

I was one of the founders of my university's Humans vs. Zombies student group, although I am no longer active. I was the Zombie Queen though! 

If the CO paint group is a club, I am part of that. I'm part of some gems and rocks groups, but membership may have lapsed. Really do need to renew my membership for some of the academic ones. Blergh.

Currently, no.

 

Until recently, member of the St. John's board game club. Then I moved away.

 

At work, almost started a photo club with a co-worker. Then we got reassigned to different projects in different cities. So that fell flat.

 

In college, early 90s, I was part of the student games club: "Le Hobgobelin". Some of the best years of my life. But alas, once I graduated, I wasn't a student there anymore, so no longer a member.

June 7: Will you cross anything off your bucket list this year?

 

Thanks, TGP!

 

Don't have a bucket list per say and having a new baby means were staying closer to home this year.

Been many many years since I was sociable and involved in things other than family and work.

We have 6 farm cats, does that count as a club? If not, then no. 

 

Our last farm cat died this winter so I don't even have that.

I started a Neighborhood Association after my house got broken into two years ago. I was the first President!

 

Hilariously, I now consider it a nuisance and am a rather lackadaisical member. I didn't realize how drama filled such a group can be. I am now in a full out sitcom level feud with my next door neighbor.

June 4: Do you/can you display your geekiness at work? What do you have? Posters, Han Solo bobble head, figures that you have painted, etc?

 

Thanks, Chaoswolf!

I have an infinite hallway and two minis! Though Hot Foot is starting to lose paint..

June 5: What's your favorite season? What do you like about it?

Winter! 

 

Though I've started to question that and like summer more...I don't why I like Winter, but I'm starting to like summer because gardening.

Knarthex inadvertently suggested something last night during a hangout session, it isn’t much of a huge something, but it’s something:

 

Read A Princess of Mars  (—Burroughs)

Yes and Yes. 

 

Member of the NTFC. Which thankfully has the membership requirement of simply showing up. Meeting tomorrow!!

 

I am the founding member, President, and Grand Chief Griffin of SPÜÜ: The Society for the Propagation of Ünecessary Ümlaüts. These are exciting times at SPÜÜ,  as there are openings for all offices except President and there is (or would be if we had more members) a raging debate (between the four dot orthodoxy and the six dot progressives) over the exact number of ümlauts in the Society’s official name.

Nope. I should join the American Chemical Society before they realize I'm not a chemist anymore and it was my math degree that got me my job. Keep putting it off tho.

I am a member of a few professional organizations, but that's about it. Unfortunately, it's hard to find time to do much else between work, family, and hobbies, but I may try to fit some more things into my schedule soon.

      I was absent from here for much of 2018 (starting mid-August 2017), but that doesn't mean I wasn't painting. I hope to post a bunch of pics over the next week detailing all the minis I painted before August 2018. March featured a ton of stuff for convention GMing and I also painted a bunch for Tomb of Annihilation. And just whatever I felt like.
      I'm going through stuff elsewhere to see what's been done and soon I'll be posting the list of minis (and also linking to other show-off threads).

      Welcome to Getting to Know You, December 2018 Edition.
       
      The rules as they currently stand:
       
      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 post one... 
      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 8:00 hours and 13:00 hours GMT (UK / Europe Time: some Zero Dark Thirty hour for US time zones)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... (Or Talespinner, he started it.)
      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 can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will usually take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday. 
       
      December will begin ^ with such a question because the month begins on a Saturday.

      Minivember is here once again! I know that today is the 5th so I'm going to have to play a little catch up as I was on vacation until yesterday evening. Now I need to get started painting so this will probably be a shorter intro post than previous years. You may ask why the title says "The Last." Well because this is the last year that I am going to be doing Minivember. Next year I'll have a new fun thing but it will be in October instead of November because of how busy this time of year is for me. And I know that the holidays are part of the challenge but it's getting to be too much of a challenge.
       
      This year I'm going to be painting minis from Shadows of Brimstone that I have not yet finished. My goal (like every year) is to paint at least thirty (30) unique minis, one (1) for each day. While I've reached this goal in the past I'm going to push myself a little further this year and try to get all of one type of the mini painted. Some of them have up to six (6) of the same mini. I chose to paint this because I want to play the game again and this is a great time to get it done. While this is not all of the SoB minis that I have to do it is a good chunk of them. 
       
      Anyway, here's this year's calendar and I'll be posting photos as soon as I can.
