  1. Seeing it's a WK, I'll say it's male, since if it was a female, there would be no doubt Yeah, if it were female, the base would be next to nonexistant!
  2. I did see a shark while snorkeling...About five feet long, a white-tip reef shark. It came swimming towards me, ready to attack, when out of nowhere a giant octopus appeared and dragged it to Davy Jones' Locker... No lie.
  3. Remember when you ran away and I got on my knees and begged you not to leave because I'd go berserk?? Well... You left me anyhow and then the days got worse and worse and now you see I've gone completely out of my mind.. And.. They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!! They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa To the funny farm. Where life is beautiful all the time and I'll be happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats and they're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!!! You thought it was a joke and so you laughed, you laughed when I had said that loosing you would make me flip my lid.. RIGHT??? I know you laughed, I heard you laugh, you laughed you laughed and laughed and then you left, but now you know I'm utterly mad... And.. They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa, They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa. To the happy home. With trees and flowers and chirping birds and basket weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes and they're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!! I cooked your food, I cleaned your house, and this is how you pay me back for all my kind unselfish loving deeds.. Huh?? Well you just wait, they'll find you yet and when they do they'll put you in the ASPCA, you mangy mutt!!! And... They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa. They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa. To the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time and I'll be happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats and they're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!! To the happy home, with trees and flowers and chirping birds and basket weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes and they're coming to take me away, ha-haa!!!

  4. "Solomon Kane," Sir Richard said, "The Hounds of Doom are free. The slayers come to take your head To hang from the ju-ju tree." Quoting from memory, please don't bludgeon me if I got it wrong, lionmane and primeval. I took the book on vacation with me.
  5. I bought a pocketknife with a scrimshawed handle. I wanted the big Bowie Knife with the topless mermaid impaling a great white shark with a trident scrimshawed on the handle, but it was two or three decimal points out of my price range. I went parasailing, which was...something else. Hooked into a harness and launched off the back of a small boat to a height of four hundred feet and dragged around for ten minutes, including a simulated freefall where they stopped the boat and let me sink and just before my feet touched the water they gunned it and I shot back up. Very cool. I think the guy driving the boat was kind of a maniac, and him and the other crewman spent a lot of time eating pastachios and flicking the shells off the back of the boat - or trying to, about 75% of them failed to clear the landing platform. Some snorkeling, including in Molokini Crater, a volcano that just started to peek its rim out of the sea before it died. There was a white-tip reef shark and an octopus to be seen, if you could go all the way to the bottom and keep up with Linda, the professional undersea photographer who took about 150 shots down there. We did a tour of the Road to Hana which, if you'll Google it, is really the road to HELL! dozens of hairpin turns and one-lane bridges. We were in a big tour bus with my family and a couple from the Dallas/Fort Worth area, though the wife was originally from West Seneca, right near us. The tour guide was really funny, cracking jokes and telling anecdotes and such. Then we flew from Hana in a helicopter piloted by a crazy German guy named Guernot (who goes way back with Derek, our tour guide - they once sailed a boat from Oregon to Hawaii, got marooned halfway when the boat took on water and the engines stalled, with no food and only a bottle of whiskey to live off of. It's a wonder Guernot was not eaten.) who referred to the airsickness bags as "souvenir goody bags". Two luaus, the Drums of the Pacific which had a fire-dancer (his torches went out and he said, "Anybody got a light...?" and he had to ask like six different people before he found somebody with a lighter) and the Old Lahaina Luau which a liked better because it was tiered so you never had anybody's head in your way. We stayed at two resorts - The Westin in Kaanapali (Kaanapali Beach is where the movie Blue Hawaii, starring Elvis Presley, was filmed) and the Grand Wailea. The Westin was friendlier and had a better breakfast buffet, the Wailea was very ritzy and too many rich snobs were staying there. Too many trophy wives with disfiguring plastic surgery. The statues of mermaids were the only females who looked realistic.
  6. I'm back from Hawaii. I'm still fairly out of it, after being up all night on an empty stomach in a cramped plane (those seats should by no means be allowed to recline, because people take advantage of them to crush my knees) despite napping earlier. We squeezed so much into two weeks. Pearl Harbor (I was disgusted by the lack of reverence shown by 95% of the American tourists) snorkeling tours, helicopter tours, a Road to Hana tour (google it. It's Satan's road.) and I even went parasailing, which was, suffice to say, something else.
  7. Daggers are for wimps! If I see that tiger shark I'm a gonna headbutt it to death! See y'all in two weeks, folks.
  8. The Elder Sign on the shield clinches the victory for him.
  9. Tomorrow morning my family and I are leaving for Hawaii, specifically Maui. We'll be gone for two weeks, returning home at approximately 2 in the morning, EST, on September 3rd. We've got helicopter tours, snorkeling trips, and luaus planned, and I intend at some point during the two weeks to attempt to parasail. Should be interesting. Plus there were some tiger shark sightings off Maui earlier in the summer, which led to the wholesale consumption of Peter Benchley's literature by myself. It hasn't been seen since early July, so maybe it's left. Here's hoping nothing stings me (I was stung by a jellyfish in the Bahamas) or bites off my painting hand.
  10. I originally misread the subtitle as "Looking for a MATE" and I was like
  11. How big is it? I'm curious if it'd work as a proxy Basti Harbinger for Wargods of Aegyptus. But if it's too big for a 25mm base, then I can't. Then it's just a statue.
  12. Actually, those helmets have a historical precedent. Look up 'sallet and bevor' -- that combo looks very much like what those grunts have on.
  13. Now that's a succubus! None of the innocence that Sandra Garrity's succubi show...(sorry Sandra...just how I feel)
  14. Ahnuhld-Hotep? He's freaking ripped. Furious George I'm guessing is part of the October Familiars release. 'Furious George' is also Mr. Burns' champion monkey-knife-fighter on The Simpsons. The goblin mage looks like he's saying, "Oooh, lookh whaht oou made me do! Ah bit mah tongue!"
  15. No, miss Darkwillow is holding a cosh/blackjack, not balancing a dagger.
  16. How about a female thief in leather armor balancing a dagger on her fingertip?
  17. I think the fur is too close to the leopard-pelt, myself.
  18. Here, Hobo Hobo Hobo, heeeerreee Hobo Hobo Hobo...come get your organs harvested...
  19. Never wear polyester while working with plastic glue. Think about it, spill some glue and it starts melting your clothes. This has never happened to me, however I have heard of it happening.
  20. As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful vision of human life - so I became a scientist. This is like becoming an archbishop so you can meet girls. – M. Cartmill
