    Home Safe

    Came down with some kind of mild crud. Multiple Covid tests have come back negative, so probably just a little cold. Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  2. Reminds me of the fact that I somehow never gave my roommate my ribbons until she mentioned that someone had asked why she didn't have them when we were rooming together. I was like...yeah that's a good question. Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  3. I already have my (very first) diorama concept sketched out. It hit my brain while hanging out in the airport during my layover, and since I didn't have paper and couldn't find a store selling journals, I bought a postcard and doodled it onto the back of that. I had to capture the inspiration before it leaked away! Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  4. "OneBoot" has appeared in many different forms over the years (though oddly enough, never in a D&D campaign). I always make her as close to being a kitty and/or rogue as possible. My CG halfling rogue, Etune', has appeared in multiple TTRPG games though, and cheerfully causes mischief every time lol. Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  5. Given the length of a lot of people's ribbon trains this year, I'm seriously considering doing a themed binder clip in place of one of my ribbons next year. @CherylSundseth was very kind and gave me a hairclip and showed me how to roll up the ribbon train and clip it to keep it under control, and it was totally a game-changer. As fun as it is to have the thing flapping around while walking, it can really get in the way! Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂

    Home Safe

    Home safe! Flight from Seattle to Pasco was kind of rough, but otherwise uneventful. I'm going to shower, eat a little something, then pass out, in that order. Unpacking can wait. Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  7. In Seattle. Next stop is home! In keeping with this year's unintended theme of "unexpectedly relying on the awesomeness of other people because of plan changes," a friend of mine said she can pick me up from the airport. I legit forgot to make arrangements ahead of time, since MrBoot is usually able to pick me up. He's out of town visiting family this weekend, and this fact didn't connect with the "location of our vehicle" fact in my sleep-deprived brain earlier lol. Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  8. I should have clarified; that was a general announcement made to all passengers. It happens almost every time I've flown for the past few years, and since I don't often have fragile or valuable items in my carry-on bag, I generally have it checked at the gate. It's actually nice because it's less hassle for me to do that rather than wrestle my bag in and out of the overhead compartment. Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  9. I'm sorry I missed you! Next year I'm going to be very careful about not packing my schedule so I can actually hang out and see people more! Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  10. *me checking in my bags at the airport* Can I check my carry-on now, or will I be charged extra? Agent: You'll be charged for a 3rd bag. Me: Okay, I'll carry it on then. (later, at the gate) Same agent: We need 5 more carry-ons checked please. Me: I knew this would happen, it always does lol. Getting on flight 1 of 2, heading home! Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  11. DFW is surprisingly quiet, at least for Alaska. I was literally the only person at the security checkpoint. Currently waiting near my gate with a little over an hour to kill. Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  12. Some of us are here at the Fort Worth stockyards for dinner It's very touristy Texas lol There's a limo with horns, because Texas Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  13. @Dan Goodchild klarg said you're leaving for DFW around 7am. Might you have room for me and my luggage? (1 large, 1 medium, 1 carryon suitcase). If not, no worries, I can find another way there. 🙂 Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  14. A few auction pics; @Heisler with @CherylSundseth as his lovely assistant Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  15. Very serious painting of gummi bears Jason Wiebe broke out his sculpting tools @Corporea went all in and did a diorama with part of a gummi worm Some of the entries Very serious judging of the very serious gummi painting contest A third judge needed to be called in The judges have decided the winners! First place is David Diamondstone, who painted a mermaid on the back of a gummi snake Second place is @odinsgrandsonhe sculpted a hat from greenstuff and used a sugar packet for snow Third place is @Dragoneye who took inspiration from the fact that she used a Coke can tab as a base/holder (the back is bubbles) Very serious photographing of the competition entries. Gotta make sure there's 3-point lighting! Oh wait, serious photography needs a backdrop It has been determined that this will become an official Miniature Monthly annual thing. Jason Weibe has said he can totally sculpt a trophy for it. Here's my entry Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  16. This year's Open is accompanied by interpretive banana dance, courtesy of Aaron Lovejoy. Huzzah! OneBoot 🙂
  17. Good morning, ReaperCon! I have pics from last night, which I'll post later today. There was nearly an international incident at my table involving delicious fudge. Huzzah! --OneBoot 😄
  18. Moar random pics: Many rehabilitated Sir Daniels My booth Interactive display (people can pick them up and move them) Not many people have taken chocolate... Can't think why. Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  19. Forgot my Buc-ee's pictures I bought one lol Truck-ee full of Buc-ee's THE BATHROOMS ARE THE SIZE OF MY HOUSE That's only half of the women's bathroom. HALF. Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  20. I brought mine! What day shall we wear it? Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  21. VIP swag box (I forgot to photo what was in the rest of the bag, mostly just paper stuff) VIP bag Hotel goodie bag (sorry it's sideways) Meet and Greet swag Giant map in the gaming area I can take pics of minis un-blistered tomorrow if desired. That's all I've got for now. Good night! Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  22. Here's the only one I've got so far; it's the edge of the thunderstorm that went through Dallas shortly before I landed here: Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  23. Landed at DFW! Looks like it was recently rainy, which explains our slightly rough descent. Given that I've been planning and preparing for ReaperCon for several weeks, it's a little wild that it's finally happening. 😄 Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  24. I know the feeling. My work recently transitioned to using. Microsoft Teams for everything, and while there's a lot I like about it, including the autosave feature, I still hit the save button anyways because I'm a compulsive saver. I was less pleased with the autosave feature when I opened up one of my excel spreadsheet templates and discovered it was still filled with all the PHI I'd temporarily put into it previously. I've been assured that it's HIPAA compliant, but it still bugs me that it's either "on for everything" or "off for everything." My second flight is starting to board, next stop DFW! Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
  25. Getting on da airplane! 😄 Huzzah! --OneBoot 🙂
