  1. The pips on some of my dice are fading into uselessness. Any tips on refreshing their visibility? One set is definitely Chessex but the other is of unknown provenance.
  2. I looked it up but I found it obvious from the context. Saw Endgame again for Mother's Day. It's not as good the second time around because you see more of the "family trip itinerary" nature of the plot pacing, but the scenes where they argue about Cap's broccoli and where Cap gets back up dramatically and sees who he has left on his side are definitely worth the time spent rewatching the rest.
  3. Finally "sat down" to read The Consuming Fire and it was too darned short! I need more Scalzi.
  4. It's practically a requirement if you're Fenrir. Though we get Trollskin and Venom Blood, so it kinda does make sense. At least when I did it, it was to pull a Silver Fang out.
  5. I'd begin by attempting to communicate how we represent numbers and directions in an attempt to achieve some minimal form of common ground and find out where it's from.
  6. Binged the new She-Ra over the weekend. So good. So gay. I want to cosplay literally everyone on that show.
  7. I'm going to a friend's costume Christmas Party as Jack Skellington.
  8. I played Azul and Century: Golem Edition at a friend's house. CGE has better nift than Century: Silk Road but is otherwise the same game. I also recently tried the new Terraforming Mars Expansion and finally won! It gave everyone a boost in power and I was most able to take advantage of mine. I ended the game with 50 TR before counting points.
  9. Wednesday. There was a new guy at our Transformers TCG meetup. He seemed ok. I'm doing political canvassing this weekend. I'll be introducing myself to hundreds of people.
  10. I work for a company that makes AI, so I'm just gonna go with "a lot". My phone is a Google Pixel 2 and my mobile lab is a 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid. A lovable elfhole. Once a quarter, I schedule a weekend of "absolutely nothing" to decompress.
  11. I saw First Man for my birthday over the weekend. The cinematography was amazing, it really felt like I was transported to the 1960s. Seeing what grief was like in dysfunctional relationships, OTOH, that was less fun.
  12. I loved the fact that his prosthetic leg was more than just a thing to stumble against that magically saves the day because it's a movie. He really thought of it as a tool and used it intelligently for a variety of things.
  13. I'm a mathematician. I use calculus to calculate probabilities of dice in complex games. OTR and Kickstarter. I'm on Beekeepers, but things have been pretty quiet there since [redacted].
  14. I tried out the new Transformers TCG and it was a blast. Very fast-paced and successfully captures the feel of giant robots transforming back and forth and punching each other into unconsciousness. One booster box in and I have two very successful decks, so it looks very affordable as TCGs go.
  15. Acquired: 1 Starter Deck of the Transformers Trading Card Game. It promises to be a rollicking game of Rock'em Sock'em Robots.
  16. It's 29.55 miles as the crow flies, but a lot farther as the transit system lies. I leave the house at 7:20 and arrive at work just before 9:00. The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across The Eighth Dimension. The fifth is the longest movie I have ever seen. The only reason I made it to the end was because it was the first half of a double feature.
  17. I bought the starter deck for the new Transformers TCG today. It should be interesting to see if I can keep the foil cards from folding in on onthemselves like the black hole all foil cards are. The gameplay looks fast, fun, and captures the Rock'em Sock'em Robots feel of the shows.
  18. It kinda fell apart in the third act, but it's the best Superhero Romcom since Deadpool 1.
  19. twitch uncontrollably I would lever give up drawing. Just yesterday our insurance company gave us some great pens and I drew me a Stussy doodle.
  20. And Tom Yam soup is the special this week at Noodle Lab. Score!
  21. I am the Lord of Storms, and my cloak is Gules, a Cloud Sable.
  22. Top 5: 1. Lobster Bisque 2. Beef Stew 3. Chili 4. Tom Yum Soup 5. Italian Wedding
