  1. I've played a couple of brief GURPS games; it's a crunchier system than I like, but you can build some really neat characters. MrBoot loves it, though, and has a lot of the books still. He keeps trying to find ways to integrate it with Pathfinder, but there's a lot between the two systems that isn't really compatible. I'll mention this thread to him, he may or may not be interested in joining a remote GURPS game. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  2. That's amazing and exactly what my day needed. Thank you! Now I can utilize the RickRoll in its true glory. Given that I experience the same thing from time to time (though in my case it tends to be stress-purchasing because that makes so much sense), the only suggestion I can give is what works for me. I've found that, rather than trying to stop the unwanted behavior cold-turkey, my best chance of succeeding comes when I replace it with something else. In my case, my weakness is micro-transactions in phone games, so when it becomes a problem I will find phone games without micro-transactions (they do exist), or else find a game I already own (my overflowing Steam library is helpful). Not sure how helpful that is, but that's what works for me. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  3. I resemble this remark, though I'm a bit further along in the process. Once I've gotten the kitchen sorted out, I can turn my attention to my paint room! At least all of the boxes with hobby supplies are now in the correct room (...I hope). I've got a mostly-finished Darius, so perhaps he'd be a good goal for me this week. :) Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  4. I never soaked Bones in it; @haldir remembers correctly. TaleSpinner showed me how he prepped all his class minis for ReaperCon: thin liner down some (I think it was 1 part water to 3 parts liner? I don't actually remember), toss the mix plus the cleaned Bones into a gallon ziplock bag, close the top securely then shake like crazy for a couple minutes. Highly recommend double-bagging or wrapping it in a towel you don't care about, because all the pointy bits WILL poke holes in the baggie and make a big mess. The coverage won't be completely even, but it will cover the bulk of the areas so you just need to touch up missed areas with a brush. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  5. SisterBoot and her family are dealing with that mess right now, they live in McKinney, TX. After having power only briefly on for the past couple days and their home dropping to 45*F, they will be staying with family in a nearby city (which is doing much better power-wise) until things improve. I resemble that remark. Well, I enjoyed it for the first two hours; the third hour wiped me out as I had to shift a giant drift in front of our house so we can park our van there when it gets back from the shop. I'm a lil bit sore today. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  6. Did I hear...metal paint? Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  7. We've had light but steady white crystal glitter floating down out of the sky since early yesterday evening. It's so dry right now that it's not really sticking to anything, just sort of drifting wherever it jolly well feels like. Related, it's also so dry indoors that I'm pretty sure I could power a small city with the amount of static electricity I've been generating. I'm prone to it in general anyways, but the past few days I've been mildly shocking myself almost every time I touch metal. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  8. Homeowner achievement unlocked: Hiring Another Professional To Fix The Things The Previous One Messed Up. A good electrician is totally worth it, just sayin'. It was highly annoying to have all the outlets in the intended computer area non-functional, which we did not discover until I went to set up the computers Saturday night. The second time, I hired an actual company rather than some dude, and have been very pleased with the level of service and professionalism. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  9. I found WIP minis while packing up to move that I didn't even know I HAD. After the Great Unboxing, I've got my work cut out for me. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  10. Yep, that was part of our second grocery store trip that day. First trip: We need a shower curtain and plastic silverware. Result: Acquired shower curtain and a few other random bathroom things. Did not acquire silverware. Second trip: We really kinda need silverware. Oh hey, food might be good too. Result: Acquired silverware, and a pretty decent chicken dinner. Also, swiffer mop pads because yours truly accidentally decided the best place for one of the plates was in a thousand sticky ceramic shards all over the newly refinished floor (the crash startled me into spilling my soda at the same time). Third trip: ...A shower curtain is a bit useless without shower curtain rings... Result: Acquired shower curtain rings, as well as breakfasty things. The cashier was a bit amused to see us again so soon. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  11. Moving truck is returned, moving helpers are gone, life-giving internets have been established, and my paint desk is now in my new paint room (though we had to half-dismantle it to get it in the room due to the narrow hallway). Happily, we have a few more days before the lease at the old place is up, so we don't even have to worry about cleaning all the things tonight! Which is a pleasant change from the usual. Looks like pizza, burgers or sandwiches for dinner, because neither of us can remember where MrBoot packed the silverware. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  12. Ah yes, my favorite stage of moving; the increasing numbers of "Miscellaneous from [insert name of room]" boxes as we lack the time or energy to do more than shove random stuff into boxes. After this move, MrBoot and I are agreed that we won't be moving again for a long, loooong time. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  13. I sent it to Adrienne, but apparently forgot to send it to you too. That has now been remedied! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  14. OH NO I FORGOT TO SEND JON MY LIST OF NEEDED SUPPLIES FOR MY CLASSES D: *runs off to send panicky email* Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  15. And I hope you never have to. Current status of situation with handyman: watching youtube videos so I can learn how to repair the blasted walls myself. After 30 minutes, I'm already confident that with the right tools and supplies, I could do a better job in half the time at a quarter of the expense. I discovered today that what the dude did was basically just slather spackle into all of the holes, regardless of the size; the ones he did on Friday are STILL squishy, and after talking to DadBoot, we determined that they should have had some sort of reinforcing first. One good thing to come out of this is I discovered this Canadian home renovation guy's youtube channel. I watched his drywall repair video and now I feel like I can REPAIR ALL THE THINGS. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
