    Question, April 18: What is your most regretted/disappointing  Hobby Purchase? (Could be: equipment, paint, software, supplies, models...)

     

    Games Workshop Texture Paints. I just can't get them to work.

    The thing is, I could never get her to stand up like this, she ended up on the "elbows" of her spider legs every time.

    So I've chopped her up.

    Her upper body will be used for a conversion one day, the spider part, who knows?

    That's so weird! I have 3 of her, including one from Kickstarter fulfillment, and they all stand fine.

    What a Charlie Foxtrot this campaign turned out to be...

    looks like I’m one of the last as well.

    Yes, this campaign has been quite the SNAFU. Still, they're doing everything in their power to fulfill pledges. I believe you can still demand a refund if you'd prefer.

    They have not yet begun to produce any of the 28 flavors of tile I ordered. Pretty sure I'm last on their queue.

    Suspicion essentially confirmed. The current planned production order is:

     

    0. 1" Square on Parchment (Shipping)

    1. Multigrid in Parchment

    2. Other colors of 8x8 squares

    3. Hex-on-Square in Parchment

    4. Other Hex-on-Square

    5. Hex-on-hex in Parchment

    6. Hex-on-hex in other colors.

     

    40% of my order is in Item 6. I might splurge to split my shipping and get half my order when Item 2 Ships.

    Yikes. Well. I looked up more. Apparently proceeds are now going to charities against that, and I still did love the book, so I still will recommend it...I don't support what she did, but it is still a good book.

    I'm always kind of...bemused that the SciFi Fandom is largely unaware of her crimes and that of DragonCon's founder, whilst the SCA (of which MZB and her husband were co-founders) is acutely aware and makes it a point to inform people that we've had predators in our midst and we must maintain CONSTANT VIGILANCE.

    I don't tend to look up much about authors - so I wouldn't know. I actually don't usually know who writes half the books I read. I want to say it is to avoid bias, but it's really just laziness on my part.

    The short short version is that MZB's husband was a serial pedophile who she was cool with raping any child he could get his hands on, except her daughter. No one got to rape her except MZB.

    Weekend Question, April 

    6-7-8: What have you done lately to improve your SitRep?

    I worked in the East Kingdom Coronation kitchen most of Friday and Saturday and then successfully oversaw (mostly by staying out of people's way and occasionally pointing people in the right direction) five hundred people cleaning up and exiting the event site in less than an hour.

     

    I spoke to a few folks about gathering more information and plans for our Shire's History Booth at the EK 50th Anniversary Event in June.

     

    I had a job interview Friday and signed up to attend a Job Fair Tuesday.

    If you were in charge of your very own Planet...

     

    Question, April 5: Would you rather be Pope, Emperor, Dictator for Life or High King??

    The problem with all of these is what happens next. If I were not inclined to care about what happened to said planet after my death, it wouldn't really matter which self-appointed strongman role I took. But since I do, I guess none of them?
