  1. What I *really* want, (I randomly mentioned this to Bryan, but during RCon, so he's probably forgotten) is the enormous Dark Maiden without the base, so that I can hang it flush on the wall so that it looks like the ship is coming through it. Yeah, I could just buy it and take the base off, but it's enough of the sculpt that it'd be better (for me, obviously) just to have it available without at a lower price. :)
  2. Just for you, Bryan, from all of us... We love all you Reaper Peeps!
  3. A quote from Facebook: "Corissa Nelson: Happy Birthday Piper Noelle, 7lbs 13oz, 22in long :)" 1:30 this p.m. Happy Birth Day, Piper Noelle!!
  4. It's totally true... there's a Sonic about five miles away and we have absolutely no interest in going. But Mike makes it cooooool.... ~Jess
  5. Realized I forgot to upload pix of the grudge match/VCR throwdown challenge, so they're up now. With one more special monkey photo. http://www.flickr.com/photos/naurien/ ~Jess
  6. Shannon and I went to the Dollar Store the first day I went to the Con and there were machines there to put quarters in and get a toy and I got a monkey just for no reason at all and then things just kinda got away from me.... but in a good way. And since someone will eventually ask, it has nothing to do with All-Terrain Monkey John Bonnot. It was a complete coincidence. ~Jess
  7. We're home too, got in the door around 7:45 this evening. Waited around the Dallas airport about an hour after the security checkpoint lady said "Oh, little soldiers! I remember you!", flew to Charlotte, waited for almost three hours, and did the puddle jumper to Charleston. We would have been home two hours sooner if we'd driven from the Charlotte airport, but we'd also have been at least $60 poorer if we'd not gotten the cheaper price adding the Charleston leg of the airfare. Life's funny... ~Jess
  8. You totally rock, Mike. I had this amazing talent of deciding I wanted exactly whatever it was you were out of at any given moment, and showing up for tea refills when the pot was empty or still brewing... you were so nice about it and brought me stuff when it was ready; I was even beginning to annoy myself with my timing, so thanks for your patience! Thanks too for being so flexible with the Reaper Sonic Money and our trips back and forth for proper change (until the change situation... changed...) I'm starting to ramble. Bottom line is: YAY SONIC MIKE! ~Jess
  9. Yay! It's Inge! Glad to hear you're feeling better.
  10. Friday pix up for "Monkey Goes to RCon!" See the link above. Enjoy! ~Jess
  11. Monkey goes to ReaperCon! (And no, it's not John Bonnot.) http://www.flickr.com/photos/naurien/sets/72157618165396082/ ~Jess
  12. Thanks for the well-wishes. I'm trying to keep my LJ up to date, so if anyone wants to know specifics, i'm Naurien there. Thanks for the links, Spike. We'd found the Green Dragon one two weeks ago and didn't write it down, and for the last two days of web surfing it never came up. I thought maybe it closed down or something, but now we have an address, so we may as well drive by. :) We'll check out the Hobbytown too. Y'all rock. *grin*
  13. Hey! We just got to Charleston, SC *waves to the Atlantic*. After many hours of web browsing and yellowpages.com-ing, we have failed to locate a game store. Anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!
  14. *grin* Thank you, everyone!! I reget very much that real life has bounced up and down on my spine of late. I miss everyone! I hope that I'll have the chance to get back into the boards this year, and I may unexpectedly be able to make RCon again this year. Yay! Yes, it has been a very happy birthday. Aside from the wonderful party my wonderful love put together for me, my best friend flew in from Minnesota for the weekend. It's been fabulous! Now I just have to come to terms to being done with my 20s. Lesigh. :)
  15. Thanks for the comments. In our case it's a mostly a deal between the teacher herself and the parents of this one child by their request as an emergency kind of situation; although I am involved to an extent. They're an other culture family, (recent first-gen immigrants from Africa), still live very much as they did in Ethiopia, and have been having other issues adapting to the culture. They seem to only accept information from me and have been rather condescending to the teacher. Our biggest problem when I don't get involved has been them actually understanding that this sort of thing is an issue. So I'm trying to be helpful to them while still being fair to the staff. I can't imagine that we could get sued for this knowing the details of the peope and situation all around, but it's something I hadn't thought of at all. Keep the stuff coming, it's really helpful! Thanks so much! Jess
  16. Okay, here's the situation. We have at our school a child who is routinely dropped off before hours and picked up quite a bit later than the other students in her grade. We spoke with the parents about this and they agreed to pay a certain amount per hour for whenever her transportation couldn't make it on time. Her teacher agreed to provide child care for her in those extra times. Sometimes we have this child for as long as an extra hour on the days the individual drives her. She is 3 years old and in our morning pre-k program. We have no current before/after hours care program set up, so the extra time is either teacher prep or continues into the kindergarten lessons. She is good at playing quietly and isn't a very huge burden, but it's still a difficulty for us. We're willing to make the adjustment if it means not losing her at this point. So what I'm taking more or less is a blank poll: what does professional child care in your area cost per hour? What would be a reasonable fee (in your opinion) to charge in this situation or what would you feel reasonable to pay for your own child? I don't want to start a fight or a rumble on the disgraceful costs of child care, I'm looking for numbers. Can anyone help? Thoughts? Thanks! Jess
  17. Thanks guys, you're swell! I got a few good presents, lots of love from my dearest, purrs from the kittens, got to watch tv all day and sleep a lot. It's a good thing, too, because doc told me today that it's pneumonia, along with sinusitis and bronchitis. So, no work for me again tomorrow. I'm getting fed up with being indoors, but it'll be over soon. Antibiotics have been the best birthday present ever! Jess

  20. This looks cool! If you're really worried about the kid, it looks like the scale may be closer to doll-house sizes. You could get one of the doll house scale dolls and just sculpt the blanket around her so that it's hiding the obvious doll-housey-ness of her. They have considerably less detail, but it sounds like most of her would be hidden anyway. Doll house places may be a good place to get wall paper and flooring too; they make a point of making all that stuff in scale. Heck, you could wire the room with electric if you wanted to. I wouldn't put it past them to have night lites. *heh* Most craft stores around here have a doll house aisle, and you can sometimes find whole stores devoted to the hobby that come in a few different scales that's bigger than minis but smaller than barbies. :) Jess
  21. Maybe Gus has one! Hey Gus, got any Mr. Ick minis?
