    Speaking of soup... 


    Thursday, September 13: Do you carry with you, at all times, tools sufficient to open a can of soup? (Or other canned goods)

    Nooo... :down:


    I work in a federal building. We're not allowed to carry any of the fun tools. Not even for self defense walking home from work at 1am.


    I carry a very small pocket knife. I used to use it for dealing with staples when I was a Data Transcriber.


    Now I use the scissors for random stuff, as needed. Been through security numerous times without issue. Then again, it's tiny.


    Mind, my current area still has Exacto knives from when we were literally cutting and pasting (with glue) to develop training material to be sent to print.

    This question come from @Crowley


    Wednesday, September 12: What sort of supplies do you keep stocked for disaster situations?


    What? Me worry?




    I survived a month on popcorn, hotdogs from 7-Eleven, and soda with no tv and no phone service, alone in an apartment (there were Reasons for it). Who needs milk, bread, and eggs?


    I may have splurged on a bag of frozen fried okra during that time. It's... kinda blurry.

  3. Memory.


    I used to think I had a fabulous memory.


    Then multiple people gaslighted me. Over time I started to doubt myself. Especially when it came to GMing (a player was telling me things happened one way, I remembered it differently). I started recording my sessions and taking lots of notes. A GM did this to me as well.


    Found out I was mostly right. Between the player and boyfriends' gaslighting, I still have issues and second guess myself a lot. I know I'm not perfect, but I do remember things others don't.


    The women on my mom's side tend to suffer dementia as they get older. It's a fear of mine, so being told I don't remember right really makes me skittish now.

    My go to "recipe" for chili:


    3-4 cans of red beans. 2 can of black beans, 1 can of random other beans that I accidentally grabbed when buying a cartful of beans when they were on sale. 1 large can of stewed  diced tomatoes. 1 can of tomato paste. 1-2 onions, 1-2 boxes of sliced mushrooms. Green pepper or two. 4-8 tablespoons of chili powder, some pepper, cumin, salt. Can add in a pound or two of ground beef if you want. You don't have to brown it, but it tastes better if you do. A handful of peanuts adds some interesting texture. 


    Put the crock pot on low for 8-10 hours. Done. 


    Beans in chili?

    The first instance seems to be in the 1998 Merlin. Then there's a bunch of books where she's described as the queen of the unseelie court. But it's all very recent, in terms of literature.


    Right, I now vaguely recall that Merlin. But don't remember her as evil so much as trying to cling to her cultural heritage which was being wiped out by invaders.


    Maybe I just overly sympathize with the fae courts.

    What I want to know is how Queen Mab went from being a fairie who brings dreams (good and bad) to people to being a major villain. It seems like, up until recently, she was a neutral sort of character. Then in the 90s she's a villain. 


    Huh? Where did this happen?

    Replying to an old comment, but it's a valid question....  Some credit card companies have their fraud alert systems automatically go hyperactive at the fact Hobby-Q's payment system puts two transactions through within about three seconds.  One to verify the card ($1 USD), and then the second one is for the actual purchase.


    As for notes, looks like my note didn't go through when I paid via PayPal for more paints, but it sure went through for my DDS2 order...  If the PayPal one did attach, it was something along the lines about Kobolds making me forget shiny things to sate the dragon in DDS2....  Email doesn't show it though ::(:

    Paypal doesn't send the order notes through iirc.

    Had my oldest ask me if we had colour tv when I was a kid. I was born in '74. :blink:


    We had a black and white up to 1980.

  9. Yeah, I'm allergic to avocados. I break out in hives (and living in Texas, surrounded by guacamole which is used as a garnish, I have to be careful about what I order).


    My youngest is allergic to Jell-O.


    I had a boss allergic to cucumbers.


    And shellfish allergies are a thing. A lot of gumbos have shrimp (I looooove shrimp gumbo).  So a posting of the ingredients would be a good thing. ^_^

    Received my swag bag today. Just want to give everyone else a warning. The Pathfinder hardcover smelled slightly musty when I went to inspect the contents of the bag. Upon closer examination the last couple of pages are damp and have mold. Everything else in the bag is dry and mold free so I assume Reaper must have received the book stock in this condition. Luckily I could care less about PF. Just wanted to give others a heads-up.


    I'll need to check my copy, but I don't think mine smelled.

  11. Sounds yummy. From those participating, though, check on food allergies. Had a friend who is deathly allergic to nuts eat something made with peanut oil while visiting here from Australia. ER visit was not fun for him.

    Just a heads up, my ribbon requirements will be changing next year. If you want a Ludo Friend! ribbon, you'll have to bring me a rock. Extra points for interesting or customized rocks.


    You should put up rules:


    No rocks from the hotel grounds.


    Nothing larger than your fist (because you know us... someone will wheel in a large suitcase with a boulder inside).
