Thanks, Crowley!

Once a week I head down to the resturant and enjoy my usual meal. Cheeseburger cooked rare, so as the balance the sanguine humour, and a pile of fries, washed down with several pots of coffee. (The waitress doesn't even bother with a menu, she just asks if I'm eating. This is the benefit of always ordering the same thing, it makes everyone's life a little easier.) I don't go on the weekends as it's too hectic, I go on Weds after the lunch rush ends.

 A trip to a bookshop, game-store or tradeshow with enough money burning a hole in my pocket that I can buy whatever takes my fancy without having to think twice...

 

 This isn't going to happen anytime soon, but when I pay off ship in September the sky is the limit!

Hmmm...  I'd probably have to go with a good, king sized donair.  Mmm, so good, so tasty.  Makes for a nice treat. 

 

We won't comment on calories because I suspect it's a LOT of calories.

I do know a place where I can get pies, cheesecake, or pastries...for dessert...and that is after having a cheesesteak sandwich that is made with real actual cheese and pecan smoked rib-eye.

 

***Need to think of a non-food, non-calorific treat.***

Nope. Can’t. They are closed Sundays and Saturday is planned out already.

New minis, terrain, or a wargame rulebook.

Recently cashed in some brownie points with wifey to buy a new 3'x3' neoprene gaming mat. I'm looking at getting a couple of new rulebooks soon as well (Dracula's America and Gaslands), and possibly some post-apocalyptic shanties from Fogou models (I've accumulated a lot of brownie points).

Let us know what you think of Dracula's America. I'm very tempted by some of the figures, (Undead Confederates!) But I would like to know if the rules are fun before commiting myself to ANOTHER rule set.

Seems to come pretty highly recommended. I know Froggy has played it a fair bit of you want to pick his brain.

One thing that stands out to me from what I've read is that to really get a sense of immersion in the game, you need to have appropriate miniatures and terrain. To that end I've snagged a set of cardboard western buildings from eBay for cheap until I can afford to buy a bunch of 4Ground ones.

Hmm, no one thing jumps out. Most common is the occasional Starbucks run (I'm not an everyday guy). However a good book or game are right up there too. Favorite might be a good seafood dinner (lobster, crab, etc.) but that is most rare too being as how I look very in the middle of nowhere Illinois.

I haven't figured that out yet. I spent so long in 'crisis/survival' mode that it's been kinda hard to break out of that style of thinking now that I have a decent job and enough money.

The Big Treat when I was still a Long Islander was a Carvel  sundae. Here in Texas that translates into a Dairy Queen sundae.

I don't think the Big Treat will be happening any time soon.

A trip to Origins.  I will on Wednesday.   A close second is a trip to a bookstore.  Next will be Tuesday.

This is kind of why I picked this question. :ph34r: We rarely have anything to spare in our budget (it took a lot for my husband to convince me to get ReaperCon classes) and I struggle with justifying things for myself. I was hoping to try out some free ideas. ::P:

A doll or minis, sometimes a dress, occasionally a ridiculous amount of shrimp. 

 

I actually got a new doll before we left on this trip. Starfire, from the DC girls line. I didn't get a  chance to take her out of her box though, but she's beautiful.

      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.

      I thought this year would be my last ReaperCon. Somewhere along the line, I forgot the joy of speed painting and just painting miniatures for tabletop quality that I can use for gaming, etc. Somewhere along the line miniature painting became something that had to 'wow' or be appropriate for competition.
       
      I rediscovered my love of miniature painting at the Speed Painting, Sophie Says, and Paint by Die Roll tables at ReaperCon 2018; having 45-60 minutes to paint a miniature was such an exhilarating challenge and I present to you my fun!!!
       
      Barnabus the pirate was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Esme was a Speed Paint.
      Judas was a Sophie Says. 
      Michelle was a Speed Paint.
      Ogre was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Sekhmet was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Trista was a Sophie Says.

      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...

      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.
       
       
      The most important thing is to have fun! In fact, its now mandatory
