    Saw Ant Man and the Wasp today. Fun movie, as expected. Loved seeing Michelle Pheiffer. 


    Man, they really missed an opportunity not having Micheal Peña narrate a overview of everything that happened leading up to infinity war. :lol:

    Saw a Double Feature of that and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. This pretty much sums up my opinion of the latter, except I didn't cry when [redacted] because it was painfully obvious that they were just laying it on thick as a cheap emotional ploy:

    Surprise Bonus Question for Monday July 9th: How many episodes counts as a binge? Does the length of the episodes make a difference? 

    Anything longer than a single DVD, so ~5 hours.

    Question for Tuesday, July 10th: What was the last thing you baked? What was the last baked item you ate?

    I don't do a whole lot of baking. The last baked item I ate was probably pizza. The last item I baked was probably also pizza. I was going to bake a ham for making sandwiches from, but I bought a pre-cooked one instead.

    Question for Monday, July 9th: Do you enjoy binge watching TV shows, or do you prefer to enjoy them in a more drawn out fashion?

    My college Sci-Fi Club had a tradition for movie/tv marathons called TUBs. Named partially for carrying VHS tapes in large tubs but also it was short for watching shows "'Til U Bleed".

    Question for the weekend of July 7th & 8th: Monster Skin - When you think of goblins, hobgoblins, bugbears, orcs, gnolls, and kobolds, etc., what colors do you mentally picture? Is that how you paint your minis? Are these colors influenced by any particular artwork, description in a book, or appearance in a movie? 

    My color scheme is largely based on my needs as an Earthdawn GM.


    Goblins - Don't exist, might repaint them as Scurriers. Exposed brains could be fun to paint.

    Hobgoblins - Make great Orks. Usually painted with olive tones (as in the color of Spanish Olives)

    Bugbears - repurposed as Magmabeasts, painted in bright red with messy black drybrushing

    Orcs - See Hobgoblins above

    Gnolls - Don't exist, might squint and call them Jackalmen

    Kobolds - Don't exist, might repaint them as Pangoli

    3. Living just outside Boston, I could easily go to the officially licensed Cheers Bar to be handed an overpriced sandwich, and a beer, while hanging out with the tourists, but I don't honestly know what's on their beer menu. I've never been inside.

    You could also go to the Bull and Finch, the inspiration for the Cheers Bar, which is a lovely place with an old timey "smoking lounge" feel without the tobacco and damned good food.

    Question for Friday, July 6th: Do you display your minis? If so, how do you decide which minis to display? And how do you display them? If not, why not?


    Bonus Question: Is anyone else displaying one of your minis?

    I've occasionally had minis up for display, but not in my current house configuration.


    I've occasionally gifted painted minis and hope they're all still on display or otherwise treasured.

    Question for Wednesday, July 4th: When was the last time you rebelled?

    May, when I opted out of the never-tested-for-safety full body scanners they use at the Airport.

    Question for Thursday, July 5th: Sitting down at the place where everyone knows your name, the server slides a plate and a glass in front of you. What's on the plate, and what's in the glass?

    The plate: a reuben sandwich, dill pickle spear, and a small but tasty pile of chips or fries.

    The glass: Magner's hard cider

    Stupidly, my brother and I used to "battle" with fireworks. The name escapes me right now. Not bottle rockets but similar. Inch wide tube about 12 inches long and it would shoot 5-6 streaks of fire works out of it? You were supposed to put them in a tube on the ground but we would hold them and shoot them at one another. We did this every summer and it was incredibly dumb. I got burned a lot. One year his pants caught on fire because there was one charge left but he thought it was empty and pointed it down near his feet. It turned out fine and at the time was hilarious but now as an adult, I'm just like, "where were my parents!"



    Also @Glitterwolf YIKES!!!!! 


    My brother and I tried to build a rocket car out of a toy truck and a rocket engine. Fortunately the flamethrower we built was unable to ignite the rocket engine.

    Question for Monday, July 2nd:  Do you know the story of Mrs. Malaprop? Do you use or accidentally employ malaprops? Do you insist on the more formal spelling


    *Thanks to @TGP for today's question!

    I played Faulkland in a production of The Rivals. I was so unlikable the audience nearly refused to let us finish the play.

    Question for Sunday, July 1st:  We're halfway through the year! If you had a goal for the year, are you still on track? If not, what's your next step?


    My primary goal for the year is to seek comfort and aid when I need it and provide for others when they do. It's tough going, but I think I'm accomplishing my goal. Next step is to end the atrocities committed by ICE.

     I now possess two of the four Ral Partha 20-00X 54mm Earthdawn miniatures...


    20-001 Me'gana, which I acquired decades ago simply because it looked cool and was really big...





    And now today I bought 20-004 T'skrang, which I pulled out of the big collection I curated for the Citadel awhile back.





    I'm tempted to see if I can't find the other two, just for completeness.



    Impact! Miniatures sells them in resin.

    Really?  I skipped that one as after the Cthulhu version, the dice version and base one with all the expansions, I was worried it would just be more of the same.  I am intrigued.  

    The train and ship mechanics were much more interesting than the plane mechanic. And the Water Purification Tokens sometimes meant curing disease was not the best method of preventing the spread of disease, which made for interesting strategic and tactical decisions.

    I'm down to just Legends of Tomorrow out of the CW superhero shows, going to make next years crossover interesting and possibly a little confusing.

    Supergirl is the only one that I watch, and I found this year's Crossover's plot quite easy to follow, given that there hardly was one.

    Only problem I have with the Honor series is that it suffers from Hornblower syndrome.  Other than that the books are a blast to read, particularly the way the author finds a way to force the story into ballistic broadside engagements and includes most of the sailing ship tactics while keeping a lot of it fresh and interesting.


    And sign me up for a treecat companion!

    I'm not sure what Horblower syndrome is, but the Honor Harrington Books are supposed to be Horatio Hornbower in SPAAAAAAAACE, so I presume that's intentional.
