    Maybe CAT? Since *BONK* is a stuffed cat? MUMMY is another possibility, but the Dr. Who jokes would probably start to get old. 

     

    Huzzah! 

    --OneBoot :D 

     

    Dr. Who jokes never get old.

    No, if you go, your ribbon needs to be:

     CHICKEN! 

     

     

    Oooh, that's a thought.

    Friday, September 7: Who was your craziest/most interesting teacher?

    Mr. Thomas Vannatta. English teacher, but for me Creative Writing.

     

    Well over 6' tall, and around 300 lbs, he was half Inuit, half Japanese, lightning quick sense of humor, and told crazy stories about growing up in Japan...

     

    At a baseball game: "... and so I took a giant bite of the hot dog and thought 'this doesn't taste right'... because they put a herring in the middle of the hot dog!"

     

    Not sure how true his stories were, but he really taught us how to write. ^_^

     

    Miss him.

    Oh. And I got distracted and decided I wanted to make a Morihalda sticker/logo. :lol:

     

    I think I'll end up with a clean version of this:

    Though if y'all are interested in what other things I was messing with, they're in the spoiler box. :)

    No no no. Nevermind. This is me getting excitable and creating a project where there isn't one. :lol:

    Stickers, Mori. Just. Stickers. Go paint minis with all that spare time you think you have!

     

    I did decide on my next two threads though! Under WIP, I'll make one for practicing skin tones and faces, and under Sculpting, I'm going to make 3 minis out of 3 popular types of putty/clay.

     

    Why not both? Use purple contact paper and cover the exterior.

     

    But seriously, spray painting the metal might help keep it in good shape for longer by preventing rust. You'll be protecting your investment.

    Tuesday, September 4: What weird food combinations do you enjoy?

    Openfaced cheeseburger with all the fixings (meat, lettuce, tomato, dill pickles, red onion, mustard, mayo) smothered in chili and topped with sour cream.

     

    As a side to this scrumptious dish, thick cut potato wedge fries with chilé con queso.

    I use Dijon mustard as a salad dressing. *shrug*

     

    I like sour cream mixed with red salsa as a salad dressing.

    Husband has turned me on to putting syrup on my breakfast potatoes. Because I wasn't having enough of a blood sugar spike :rolleyes:

     

    Oh, and I like putting tuna in my mac & cheese, which is apparently weird based on what a few people have told me, but perfectly normal to me.

     

    I do the tuna and mac & cheese. Just a tuna cassarole. :huh:

     

    My kids love my homemade mac & cheese with diced ham.

    Just got an email from Badger that I didn't win the contest. I had all the correct answers, but I wasn't in the first 12. But thanks for the help on identifying the artist, everyone. I wouldn't have even had a chance if I hadn't got that answer from here.

     

    I... did win.

    Sickness subsiding. Might not even have a terribly stuffy nose for the flight tomorrow either.

     

    Course, I may be getting rid of my ConCrud because it looks like I gave it to my wife. And she’ll be alone sick with two kids over our anniversary. Uh... maybe flowers AND chocolates are on tap for this year. 

     

    This calls for her favorite dinner out, sans kids, upon your return.

  8. Thanks for your breakdown, @Kuro Cleanbrush. That will help me better analyze how I'm doing on my own.

     

    I came to the sad realization that my Sir *BONK!*Scale was lower level than I wanted. While the figure was done fairly well with freehand woodgrain, highlighting, etc, the modling of *BONK!* and that paint/freehand was rushed and subpar, especially compared to the rest of the mini.

     

    With information, you can take a step back from your work and appraise it with a critical eye. "Does something stand out? Why? Does the mini outshine the basing or vice versa? Is something lacking the work that the rest of the mini has?"

     

    I was very glad to see so many awesome pieces this year (even from a distance).

    Wednesday, September 5: Tell us about a time something started out badly for you, but ended well.

     

    September 1998. I worked customer service for Computer City which was in the death throes of being bought out by CompUSA. I was in a T-Bone car wreck. Ambulance took me in because of back pain. My truck was totaled.

     

    Initial x-ray showed nothing, and I spent a few months in physical therapy. I was "better," but still had a lot of pain. My managers were cool and understanding and allowed me a stool at the register to help alleviate my pain.

     

    In comes the new management team. Away go the old managers, and my precious stool. When I approached the managers, I was told I needed a doctor's note. I ended up back in physical therapy because of them. Got the doctor's note, then was promptly placed on "medical leave of absence." Not my choice nor my suggestion. I walked in at 8:00 am one morning after a 2 hour bus ride to work and was told this was my new designation. Not fired or let go, so no unemployment for me.

     

    Took a civil service exam, ended up where I work now.

     

    Sixteen years later, after a series of different doctors, found one who took more x-rays. Oh, look, my spine had been fractured and as a result of time and misdiagnoses, had slipped and is putting pressure on my spinal cord.

     

    At least I have a good, far better paying job and no longer work retail.

     

    And CompUSA? Bankrupt.

    I was trying to be very mindful of this, and did direct a couple of the participants to stay seated rather than paint under the table etc. Most of them came up with a modified version on their own instead. :)

     

    Also, for the final big one, I kept the physically demaning directions both fewer and simpler, since I wasn't able to see all the participants to make sure nobody was having a hard time. 

     

    I do appreciate your bringing this up, though, since it is definitely a concern, and we want everyone to be able to participate and have a fun time. @Ludo perhaps we should add a little disclaimer at the bottom of the activities sheet next year that Sophie doesn't want anyone to be hurt or uncomfortable, so if you have concerns to please feel free to let the organizer(s) know beforehand so you can be accommodated. Perhaps we could all wear a specific shirt/vest/sash to make volunteers and organizers more visible?

     

    Huzzah! 

    --OneBoot :D 

    Thank you. ^_^

     

    Since I wasn't there, I only saw a few pictures and thought "Oof..." But knowing you're being conscientious makes me feel much better that this is something being considered.

     

    Just yet again proving my Reaper family is full of awesome.
