    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    I will have noms available at the Paint and Take station. Whether they would normally constitute part of this complete breakfast, though, is up for debate. I mean, banana Laffy Taffy and fruity-flavored gummies are basically fruit, right? Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    I went to an endodontist for mine at the suggestion of my dentist. He said he could do it, and it would be cheaper, but he wasn't a specialist. I'm glad I went with the endodontist, he and his team were so efficient and did a fantastic job, even considering they had to drill through a crown. Mine took about 4 days to calm down, but I was able to get mine taken care of the day the symptoms got really bad. Yours will most likely fade more gradually since yours has been going on for longer. I'm glad you were able to get yours taken care of! I could only handle mine for a weekend before I was ready to gouge the thing out myself. Worst pain I've ever experienced in my life. Um, I could probably help, but my available recording equipment isn't very good. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    PaizoCon 2019!

    Official poster sign thingy! All the lovely little painting stations awaiting tomorrow: BEGIN THE PAINT PICTURES: I can do some color comparison shots tomorrow (all of each color together, since for example a few of the light blues are kind of close to each other). Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    PaizoCon 2019!

    Oh...we've got Pathfinder paints. We have many much paintses. Precious. Each stack of 2 boxes is a unique color. NOTE: this amount of paint is extremely not-typical for a Paint and Take. Usually it's about 12 colors to choose from, lol. Oh, and here's one with a Seoni For Scale (she's on the left). Currently working on opening and setting up ALL THE PAINTS, then will take more pics. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Reapermini New Site Layout

    I just wanted to say I LOVE that I can hit 'Back' and easily return to my list of search results now (before I had to 'Confirm form resubmission' every time). Thank you! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  6. FWIW, Argent's head is my favorite part of the sculpt. His expression looks like a wise older dragon who's seen a lot of stuff and won't put up with any nonsense. @Cyradis Thanks for posting that picture, I didn't realize he'd been working with concept art, and I think he captured the pose extremely well. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Actually, babies are phonetically capable of producing any sound in any spoken language. As time goes on, the brain weeds out the neural pathways for linguistic sounds it doesn't hear and reinforces the pathways for sounds it hears a lot of. Which is why acquiring another language is easy for kids but gets harder as you get older (though not impossible, because our amazing brains have this incredible property called neuroplasticity). /linguisticsnerd Onechi. Hm, sounds like a Japanese snack, or possibly dessert. I'll take it! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    That is an accurate description of many of the things Doug posts. *climbs up onto language soap box* While that is true once a child reaches a certain point in their language development, there really is a linguistic point to "Motherese" (I didn't name it that, and fathers do it too of course, that's just the term used for it when I was in my SLP program). The language is simpler, the pace is slower, and the pitch is higher. These changes not only allow more time for the baby to process what was said, it also signals to them that they are the one being spoken to, and they will be more likely to attend. There also tends to be a LOT of repetition, which again is helpful for language acquisition. *hops off soapbox* Or if you're referring to the "Ooo aht a coo bebe ooo are! Is tumtum hungee, es him is!" variety, then by all means keep being annoyed at it (and I'll join you), lol. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Caravan to Reapercon 2019

    After a great deal of thought and discussion with MrBoot, we've decided that logistically it's best I fly this year, so I must regretfully withdraw from the caravan. :( If y'all swing through my area, I'd be happy to help with some gas if I can send some of my paints with you. :) Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    ReaperCon 2019 Ribbons

    Can't do a link due no commerce rule, but I can tell you that several of us order ours online from Ribbons Galore. If you want yours to match the size of most people's, get the 1 5/8" by 3 1/2" size. :) Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    After much trial and error, we determined that foam mattresses hurt my back, while MrBoot's bad hip feels better with one. Our compromise has been to buy a thick foam mattress topper, chop it in half, and put it on his side. Yes it means his half of the bed is a couple inches higher, but we both sleep more comfortably. :) Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  12. Mine had the same issue; the lamp simply wasn't there. It looked like it had gotten snapped off before bagging, the connection is pretty thin. I emailed and was issued a replacement. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    "Wiggly little suicide machine" is an accurate descriptor of my adorable nephew. He's not quite 2, and still hasn't grasped the fact that the laws of physics (gravity in particular) apply to him. He's already traumatized his AuntyBoot twice by simply...stepping off into space at the top of stairs (nothing worse than a scrape or bruise both times, thank heavens). His other pastimes include violently and without warning trying to fling himself from one's arms if he sees something of interest, and pulling things from the trash to chew on. It's a wonder anybody survives to adulthood, really. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Forumite Classes, 2019

    Yay! My primary goal for my classes is for people to have fun, try new things, and hopefully learn something new! My classes are all in the evening, so if that doesn't work for your schedule, please feel free to find me outside of class and I'd be happy to give you a mini version. And Doug is fantastically knowledgeable about many things, photography in particular. If he's teaching his Miniatures Photography class this year, I highly recommend it! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Reapercon 2019 Sunday get together dinner

    Yep, I was the one that organized it last year. After doing a lot of looking around, I ended up just going with the hotel restaurant last year primarily because it drastically simplified the logistics: They are well prepared and equipped to handle 25+ people groups (I've gone in very large groups to restaurants that were neither of these, and waiting 45 mins for cold food is not fun) Better able to account for food sensitivities than a buffet (which were the other options I was looking at, due to point #1) Least amount of travel time needed (plus people could easily come late or leave early as needed) No vehicular transportation required (trying to coordinate several carpools and make sure nobody got left behind, while do-able, was a potential issue that seemed easiest to avoid at the time) I'd be happy to set it up again this year, but if you'd like to take point, I'd be glad to assist! :) Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
