    Quizzle for 12 January 2022

    Coffee, tea, juice or milk, what is by your breakfast plate?

     

    Coffe, black.. a few cups (whatever my portion of the pot ends up being). Then black teas... Yorkshire Gold is wonderful.

    [This is gonna stir things up!]

    What's the best cookie? 😈

    Cowboy cookies! Oatmeal coconut chocolate chip with walnuts. Pecan dreams are second.

    Question for September 30th:

    If you could transport yourself to a fictional reality (from books, TV, movies, RPGs, whatever) which would you pick?

     

    Pern ... because Dragons. I wouldn't want to be out in Threadfall, but then who in their right mind would... unless of course you have a dragon.

    Weekend Quest!

    What was the first miniature to really grab your attention. The one that made you fall in love with the hobby. Did you ever actually buy and paint it? Do you still have it? Do you still love it?

    I think it was Onyx from Rackham. I did buy it. I've started painting him multiple times,  but have never finished him. I still want to paint him..

    Brinewind Store. The auction is fun as a social event, but this allowed me to get something I wanted within reason. The auction gets way to 'serious' sometimes.

    Scheduled time between classes.

    MSP Open in a separate room

    The displays and doc cams for classes.

     

    Dislikes:

    Shorter classes (especially as the teachers had short notice about that) - yes I know I also like the time between... I'm contrary like that.

    No con wrap-up. I agree with ChaosWolf on the feeling of just running out of gas.

    I miss vendor swag too

    No center aisle (or any aisle) during the awards ceremony.

    August 27: What is something that helps you destress?

    A good weightlifting workout. The need to focus completely on lifting is meditative to me. It pushes my viewpoint to just 'the now' and provides perspective on what's causing stress.

    August 28th: We chatted about pie vs cake the other day. What other desserts do you enjoy?

    Bonus quest: Make or share a recipe this weekend!

    I think I like all things sweet... I introduced my daughter to a mocha shake this week... so yummy. Also cinnamon candied pecans, tiramisu, creme brulee, cheesecake, ice cream and frozen custard , cookies... and pie and cake (I like both!)

    August 11: What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?

    I had a work-study job at one of the university kitchens. It wasn't that bad, I remember shredding a lot of big blocks of cheese. Just, boring. What I don't remember is quitting... I think I just stopped going.

    August 9: What is the most disastrous experiment you have ever tried in the hobby?

    A very thick resin pour. I did it all in one go. Im glad i didnt start a fire or melt the figure. It is still sticky.  But even so, earned a silver and silver monster award at reapercon.. go figure.

    Weekend Question
    August 7-8:  Are you going to ReaperCon, and if so, are you ready?
    Alternate Question: What are you working on now?  Post pictures, please!

    Yes... but concerned and feeling skittish about it. Ready? Whats that? Getting there I have everything basically in order. The entries though... why do I do this every year? Sigh...

     

    I'm working on my first open division entry. I hope I get it done soon so I can get my Painters entry finished too.

  9. Ok... I'm in too... always a good time. I'm feeling a bit skittish right now, but I need a ReaperCon. 

    Dragoneye. Use the image from last year... matches the pin. Looks like it disappeared here. Will try to get it back. Or can use the one I have on my insta @dragoneye_miniatures. Wed - Sun/Mon.

    QUESTION July 26th.

    What is the strangest / coolest animal you have actually petted/held? 

    Assuming living animal... I got to play with a lion cub, he was going on special exhibit at the museum I worked at. We got to entertain him while they prepared his cage... suite? Absolutely adorable with giant paws he hadn't grown into yet. 

    If you are wondering anout the living statement... I worked in fossil prep, so I've held some pretty cool and unusual dead animals.

    Monday, March 22: Steve Irwin has you pinned down in a headlock, what cool facts does he tell the audience about you and your habitat? (reddit user zombiepiemaster)

    "Well, now I seem to be in a bit of a pickle. Boys and girls its a really bad idea to put a sleeping dragon in a headlock. For one you look awfully silly, and well its rather dangerous. Now that is a really big eye that just opened... I think I'll just let go and back away before she decides that I'm breakfast.!"

    Tuesday, March 23: Clearly, many of you don't take kindly to someone stumbling into your habitat! How do you recharge after a long week (or after that Mr. Irwin encounter)?

    This dragon is a hoarder of books,  small painted figures and a selection of well loved japanese weapons.  There is also a good selection of well used heavy objects that are apparently just meant to be picked up and put back down. You'll also notice claw marks on the ceiling for when she decides she'd rather be up there.

    Monday, March 15: Did you have a favorite teacher in school? What did you like about them?

    Tom, who taught Russian and World History. He also taught me that I knew more than I thought I did; and if I didn't it was ok to make s#*t up.

    John, who taught an entire quarter on Edgar Allen Poe and always had hot water in his room for tea or coffee.

    Peggy who had swamp water aquariums in her class windows. One day she called me out for not paying attention to her lecture, I explained I was watching a hydra bud and she told me to carry on just get notes from someone after class. 

    Judy knew that I already knew how to sew so she just let me work on my own project while she taught the group to thread a machine etc... she also skipped her own class once to go out to lunch with me. 

    Yeah, that was a great school. :)

    Wednesday, February 17: How early do you submit your Taxes*; if you are not in the US, how does your country handle the collection of income taxes (or do they even have them)?

     

    * In the US Tax deadline is April 15, but we can submit as early as January.

    My husband is an Accountant, so I just give him the data and it gets done.... and I stay out of his way... so its usually done once we have all the paperwork, sometimes it takes a while to get everything.

    Monday, February 8:  What are you working on this month?

    Finishing the minis i started for last month's NMM classes with Aaron Lovejoy.

    Finishing a study of sheer fabric.

    And tackling a bust I started last spring. I painted myself into a corner, it needed to be painted disassembled which led me to paint sections to completion rather than paint everything at once. Now, I don't think the parts look quite right together but I don't want to ruin what I've done.  I know what I need to do... its just paint after all... but I'm a bit scared.
