    Getting to Know You, October 2019

    Not sure. I don't miss the envy. There was a lot of envy when I'd see the toys other kids had that we couldn't afford. But I had my teddy bear, I still have that teddy bear. I don't miss the hunger. We didn't technically go hungry but that's mostly because beans and rice were a thing. My mother splurged money on an early model crock pot and we lived out of that thing for years. This became a problem when food turned good to boredom to repetitive to soul-crushing but we ate it because our other option was not eating. I kind of miss breakfast cereal? Breakfast cereal was a rare thing, we got a couple of boxes a year. I think what I miss most is 'sugar'. I miss sugar being a treat and a rare flavor and a Nice Thing. Now it's in everything and it tastes like boredom, well on its way to 'repetitive'.
  2. Update on last night's experiment. The heater may be sub-par but the insulation is excellent. The thermostat shows the apartment temperature still one degree above the past-week maximum. To be fair, the "insulation" on our outer wall is 2 and a half feet of bricks, as solid as a 200 year old brick wall might be (full of bug and mouse tunnels, also water erosion inside).
  3. Results are in. The heater... sort of works? I set it to raise the temperature in the room 3 degrees. It took 3 hours to raise the temp 3 degrees by alternately blowing room temp air and then vaguely lukewarm air. I will speak to the leasing office about this: is this just how their heater systems roll or is there something wrong with our unit. Because I have never met a heating unit that kept the interior fan running even while the heating element was turned off.
  4. I am running an experiment. The end data will determine if I'm calling maintenance or if we're investing in more quilts. I'm running the heater full blast. I suspect it is not, in fact, a heater and is a glorified fan that is merely blowing room air around. I hope it is actually a heater and is capable of, yanno, heating the air. Initial data is somewhere in between. I have managed to raise the apartment's temperature one degree Fahrenheit after 2 hours of full-blast heater. That one degree may in fact be background noise. I am running a giant AMD machine. In college we used AMD machines as makeshift space heaters during the winter.

    It wasn't new but it was the first time since after surgery. I walked home. I waited for the subway to produce a train that wasn't packed full of sneezy people like sardines seasoned with da flu. I waited 20 minutes, several trains went by. Before surgery I wouldn't have attempted the subway, it was only a mile and a half to get home. After surgery I'm still in that state where if I walk too much I get woozy and I will knife fight you for a seat on the train. I gave up waiting and walked home. A mile and a half. And paid for it all yesterday I'm still sore tbh. But I made it.

    With six in the set you have enough to paint them one at a time, lava bomb after living lava bomb, and track your progress as you improve over the six of them. It'll be good practice for perfecting your technique for painting glowy red things.

    In my experience the early bones did lend themselves to less detail. Several of the models I painted for my NPC thread I'd painted previously in metal. There was a marked difference between the two materials that has nothing to do with the transparency of the material, the softer detail remained after priming, painting, and playing. Later bones have been better, partially because they're no longer copying old metal sculpts. They're getting into new and unique sculpts that can take full advantage of the material's strengths and weaknesses. Fewer tiny details that look good in metal but fade out into bleh in bones. I expect if I hadn't painted the exact same minis in metal beforehand I wouldn't have noticed.

    I know I'm in for one core. What parts of the core breakdown I'll acquire really depends on what that breakdown is. At the moment no individual mini or grouping leaps out at me. I'll hold off judgement until I get the chance to see what the final breakdown is.
  11. There are plenty of ways "an observation about how the real world works" could get one thrown into Beekeepers. Or in my case, arrested then fired. In that order

    We already have tiny books

    Since essentially all of their terrain has been cross-compatible I wonder if this gate will fit with or near DDS2 and/or various other ruins. Also, this is THE OPPORTUNITY to begin selling the terrain pieces out of Dragons Don't Share 2 on their own. Ruined Tower sold right next to Undead Gate and Evil Altar and... I would buy menhirs by the dozen, guys.
