    Needle files and much swearing, for the last one. ... it was worth it, though. I entered him, and got a medal! It was bronze. I was chuffed. ^^;

    I want to know more about the cloak business. A lot of shaving and sanding to make the edges look a little more like, you know, fabric. It's way easier with Bones..

    Reapercon 2019 Sunday get together dinner

    Count me another supporter for holding it at the hotel restaurant; the food there is good, and the staff generally friendly. And competent! I got some questions about my badge tail over lunch over the rest of the con; that was a first for me. ^^;

    I do - mold line removal, detail enhancement (you should see what you can accomplish for just a simple cloak!) and at least some plotting for basing, whether I actually end up doing any of it or not., and yes. Because I'm .. going to paint some of them, at least, this coming weekend. ... or I'll be herding howling bratlets. It could go either way.

    Nope. Don't watch it, don't care, not interested. What I've heard doesn't really improve my opinion of the show, either.

    Espresso shots in hot cocoa! I need to try that! Espresso in chocolate is a winning combination - put a little espresso powder in your brownie mix. NOMNOMNOM! Makes 'em really chocolaty.

    The System That Shall Not Be Mentioned.... at least, I got past character creation. *twitch* *twitch* Nope... More recently, and can actually be mentioned; PF2. Never actually got past character creation. May give 'em a chance - I understand many stupids have been straightened out - but very sour on the whole concept. Not really many else.

    No, they haven't removed that. .. .. and even if they had, I would ignore it, because sometimes, you have to defenestrate the rule book.

    ReaperCon 2019 Ribbons

    I will probably have Saved Vs. Fire again. Basically same rules as last year. If you don't know... find me Saturday at the Con and ask. I will also have Portalite ribbons. I don't know if Mr. Thorne will have any; I'll have to ask him. *suggests metallic on rainbow for SHINY! ribbons*

    Dungeons and Dragons ... with Mr. Thorne GMing, one does have to think quite a bit... ^^;

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    Mine came in a while back; I only got one. I might have to pick up a couple of others, but succubus-girl is cute and I like the miniatures I also got. The rest .. I'm not really impressed with the coasters, but the stickers and the bottle opener are alright. ^^;

    It can be dangerous to pregnant women though. It can cause Toxoplasmosis damaging the baby. I'm not entirely convinced that is always true (cats don't automatically come with it; they get it from mice that have it, according to the last research I did). HOWEVER. I don't recommend anybody go handling poop of any kind while pregnant. Let somebody else do that. With gloves. Because, seriously, bacteria are a thing, and there's no point in taking unnecessary risks. Which is probably as good a reason as any to be fastidious about clearing your litter boxes and wearing gloves while digging about in the garden, whether you're pregnant or not.

    I sort of tried to clean a cast iron skillet while it was still hot... In my experience, best time to wipe it down is while everything in it is still hot. Just.. don't handle it with your bare hands, or stick it in water; just wipe it down good. :p

    Raccoon? Not knowing the area in question, mebbe? I'm also not well-versed in the bathroom habits of raccoons. ^^; I do know that you're more likely to find cat poop buried in your flower garden than you are to find it in the middle of your lawn. And it's not bad for your garden, really... just.. not the most pleasant thing to stick your hand in.

    Don't have a local zoo Plus, I don't really mind having cats in the garden, I just wish they didn't poop, or at least do it in places where I won't run the lawnmower over it and release The Stench. Considering that cats bury their poop, I suspect your problem is not feline. It might not be canine, but dogs aren't known for burying their waste, either.

    So far, nothing that tops the Garlic Butter Disaster of 2013. (the lid was not on the container. I was finding random bits of garlic butter in that kitchen for months afterwards...). Or the Chili Pepper Debacle of 2018. (Eh, might as well throw all of these mystery chilis into the pot, should be fine... it was not fine) Mr. Thorne has not lit the stove on fire recently...

    Our Topaz is a Siberian, they're also known for their hypoallergenic tendencies. Savannahs are the ones that are supposed to be doglike, but I wouldn't swear they're hypoallergenic.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Not easy at all. I broke one (you wouldn't know it, once it was painted, but... I broke it) trying to disassemble it. I would much, MUCH rather they came in pieces or on sprues. Let Wizkids have the pre-assembled, slop-primed, fast-and-dirty market. I'd rather have quality that I have to put together.

    As a rule, my cats are very good at cheering me up. Furry idiots, maybe, but being woken up by a kitten determined to wash my face is amusing. Painful at the time. But amusing in retrospect. ^^;

    Book inventory apps/software

    I'm using My Library. It works, more or less. I'm open to other options.

    .... You don't get pictures; largely because I don't have any, and the table isn't clear enough for me to take any. ;p Our gaming space is what I suspect was intended as a dining room. We have bookshelves on two walls; full of miniatures and gaming books/materials. The actual table is a couple of folding tables clamped together, with a pair of grid maps flung overtop of them. It is presently kinda messy.

    ... This, mostly. Or listen to music. Since I work at home, there's nobody to complain if I also sing. >.>

    Anything's possible. Probable? Who knows. But it's fun to make up stories about what might have been, or might be, so I don't think Atlantis is ever going away, whether it existed or not, whether it's ever found or not.

    Uh... I don't really have a favorite. Although if there's a giant statue of a dragon somewhere, that's probably a favorite. ^^; At home ... all my dragons. ^^;

    Aeon Trespass: Eschaton

    My box of goodies also arrived; I did a quick inventory, and squee'd a bit. Sized-up Solitude is /gorgeous/.
