June 9 and 10: What's your favorite way to treat yourself?

Are you thinking about doing that this weekend or soon?

 

One of the ways for me is to go hiking in the mountains with a camera. I don't do it all that often, because to do it right I have to be up several hours before dawn and then hike on the trails in the dark to catch the sunrise in the right places. I'm hoping to do exactly that on July 3 in Rocky Mountain National Park. The trails should be clear by then (there are still snow drifts and snow fields across the higher trails right now). One of the best things about this is that if you get to the park early enough, you don't have to pay admission* and it's really easy to park at trailheads.

 

* We talked to a ranger about this, because we weren't trying to cheat the park, and were told that "It's a free day for you".

Eating something unhealthy, but super tasty.

 

I'm eating strawberry shortcake ice cream out of the container as I write this.

I get a massage once a month so I'm not sure that's actually treating myself. Otherwise, it's acquiring new minis/paints/hobby stuff. Haven't had much extra money lately due to Bones but I figure when that gets here it'll be a big pile of treating myself.

 

I might do some acquiring this weekend though. If weather permits we'll be going down to the FLGS for a paint day, that I'm nervous about, but I'll probably be getting some paint. Maybe a mini if they have the Wiz-Kids Beholder, though they're supposed to call me when they get one in. Hopefully I didn't miss that call at some point.

June 6: If you were in charge of your favorite movie/tv franchise, what would do with it next?

 

Thanks, Crowley!

Okay, finally sitting down to answer this one. Given that it's my own question, I really need to answer it don't I?  Anyway, Star Trek... 

 

First off, the current movie series? It's over. I don't feel bad about it, since it's not like the cast really needs the work. They're all popular enough without it. 

 

Discovery gets to continue. I'm not super thrilled with everything about it, but the story they're telling is interesting. HOWEVER they aren't allowed to do anything, and I do mean ANYTHING with either the Borg or the Ferengi. Also, they need to focus more on the crew of the Discovery, since I can barely name any of them. 

 

A new series will be developed. It will be an anthology series spanning from Enterprise through the TNG era, and maybe even beyond. Anywhere from 3-5 episodes each of 90 minutes, depending on the story they're going to tell. Not just Federation focused either. Klingon, Romulan, and Ferengi tales will be told. 

 

At the core of all is the idea that the Federation/Honor/Empire are all ideals and that the people are flawed, but striving toward achieving it. Ethical questions will be asked, and there will be people with conflicting solutions.

In the summer, I love a bowl of ice cream at the end of a hot day.

Ooooh yeah, that's a really good one.  Doubly so with Montreal smoked meat mixed in (which is probably my favourite from La Poutine, a local place)

There's a place here that does similar, but it mixes sweet potato fries with the regular ones. Makes a huge delicious difference.

Missed this one so give it a go now. Babylon 5. It was pretty damn good as it was but the last season and spin offs could have been better. Seeing as some of the stars have passed away and the others have gotten old it can't be changed without a magic wand. Luckily Pezler can loan me one for this. I'd like to see the 4th and 5th seasons done more like it was originally planned. Shadow war stretched out into the 5th season and Ivanova sticking around. Then I'd like to see the spinoffs and add ons done well. Crusade was ok but cancelled without a conclusion. I've heard the Legends of the Rangers was bad but I've never seen it. There's so much that could be shown with the story tags left over but everything kind of collapsed after the awesomeness that was the original series ended.

Generally just sitting and relaxing. If possible in a nice quiet place out in nature. Hadn't planned on it soon because I have a pile of things I want to get done it June but the heat and a trip to the city sucked the energy out of me yesterday. Haven't decided yet if I'll take a day off today or not. The wife calls our city trips a rest but I find driving a 5 hour round trip and 5-6 hours of driving in the city and running around stores to be more tiring for me than 10-11 hours of working.

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

 

Thanks, TGP!


Hopefully,  I'll be building myself a house and will have finished it by the end of the year. (fingers crossed)

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

 

Thanks again, TGP! 


I can neither confirm nor deny my involvement in any clubs or organizations and whether I have started any such entities.  :ph34r:

A medium rare steak in a NICE steakhouse.

 

Steak is my favourite food of all time and as such, I don't normally eat it and save up until I can splurge on a nice steakhouse steak.  At most, I treat myself to this once (or twice) a year.

 

As I said, not something I do normally but when I do - :winkthumbs: :bday: :winkthumbs:

Only rather limited experience so far, but I would have to go with Lardguulp.

Not sure how you would define hidden, searching through the back-catalogue is half the fun.

 

I'll go for 03697, the Lesser Stitch-golems, because they tend to get forgotten beside Gutrags, their big brother.

      Huh usually I put one of these up sooner than this. Just been busy I guess.
      Who's all going?
      How did you fair in the hotel lottery?
       
       So Sunday was event registration.
      Did you get into the events you wanted?
       
      My group did fairly well at the hotel thing this year even though we had to split the group this year. both hotels are fairly close.
      I got into most of the events I wanted. had some issues with the priority system preventing me from getting into events because it conflicted with another event that I would only be going to if I hadn't gotten into an earlier time. Yet some how it did allow me to sign up for 2 Speed paints that conflicted with other events that I got into. (and I only realized one before paying)
      Also I just a bit ago remembered that I wanted to do a Frostgrave event but they are all sold out already.

      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.

      Blame @Bathory for the thread title and unofficial goal for this month...
       
      If you're like me, you've got a bunch of unfinished projects collecting dust. Rather than start something new, why not finish something old?
       
      My goals:
      Finish stone giant and these guys

      I was at the 2018 Adepticon in Schaumburg, Illinois last month helping out at the Reaper Paint & Take tables.
       
      I took pictures of the stupendous international Crystal Brush competition entries and other minis and terrain with an eye towards the interests of the people on this forum. Also some fun cosplay and miscellaneous interest.
       
      I can't guarantee my photographs are great. I was using two cameras with very different capabilities and strengths and I am not a professional photographer. Some of the pictures use a very harsh flash because it allowed for super sharp enlargements of detail, something I thought painters here would be interested in.
       
      I didn't know which entries would win the Crystal Brush competition, and as it turns out I missed the third-place winner. I have got pictures of the first and second place winners.
       
      So to begin with, here is this year's first place entry, "Apocalypse", a diorama by Michal Pisarski.
       
       
       
      And this is the second place winner, "The Name of the Wind", a diorama by Sergio Calvo. My pictures of this are not so good, I'm afraid.
