  1. Lunches at work as of late, already ate the red grapes and drank the milk, and am kinda full. No canteloupe today.

     

    Yes, the Coke is the one deviation. I need caffiene, and no decent coffee here. After the soda I'll fill my big 40 ounce mug with ice and water and enjoy that for the rest of the day.

     

    What are others doing to beat the heat?

  2. Checking in. Name merge has occurred. Some of my old posts say "Guest" I noticed.

     

    Also referred a coworker's son here. He plays D&D but doesn't have a lot of social groups here. Thought this would be a good place for him.

     

    Always good to expand the family. ^_^

  3. Richard Kerr, one time sculptor at Ral Partha and Reaper, passed away November 2nd. Sandra Garrity posted he had taught her about working with putty.

     

    I recognized the name and he is the one to sculpt the original Four Horsemen for Reaper (Dark Heaven #s 2001-2004).

     

    RIP to one who helped make this hobby great.

    Set up and Tear Down are not nominally part of the gig. We generally assume paid employees for that, for insurance reasons.

    There's helping at the Store, which primarily involves restock (and thus, heavy lifting and bending). 

    There's the registration Desk, which usually involves selling people classes and giving out reaper bucks and general Q&A (light to no physical labor)

    There's concessions, which is mostly sitting down and selling food and drinks, and may involve restocking, (but less physical labor than the store)

    and there's maintenance/cleanup. Probably not recommended for those unable to lift/carry.

     

    I can do Registration Desk, sounds like, and since I'll be driving*, I know when I'll be arriving.

     

    * Dependant on me passing my road test in June.

    Can we choose which odd jobs we can volunteer for? I'd be all for helping you guys tear down on Sunday.

     

    ^^^This^^^ because there are some jobs some of us may be unable to do due to disability. For instance, as much as I'd like to be able to help set uptear down, my back and knee are most emphatic in saying "no way you crazy *BONK!*meister."

    The light grey shows up better, but I'm not liking that as much.

    Of course, my thinking was that it would be a black background with Orange over the top of it (or vice versa)

    You know... because of your *BONK!* in your signature...

     

     

    Looks too Halloweenish. I started with an orange ribbon with black lettering.

    @Aryanun Where about are getting your ribbons made? I've got a idea in mind.

    I know there MUST be people out there who think "Plan Nine From Outer Space" is a hilarious thing. I'm one of them. But I've never personally met anyone else who could do more than be polite about it.

     

    I LOVE :wub: Plan 9!! It is a hoot! Sooooo cheesy! And Maila Nurmi's waist... soo soo teeny. Omg. :lol:

     

     

    4/27

    I mostly stopped doing the things I loved because I was getting so much flack or made to feel guilty for loving things no one around me understood.

    For myself,  it's the yellow font color on the rainbow. The word appears duller. 

     

    Yeah. Actually it would be gold. I may try a darker color. I do appreciate the feedback, all! ^_^

     

    Edit: Here's some edited Rainbow versions...

    It's because I did them last year, so they don't really match everything else. The problem with doing terrain projects over an extended time period. 

    I'm pretty sure I can arrange a kobold, but I'm not sure about the OSL...

     

    And you know, I expect this sort of comment here, but on the book face too? I knew adding some of you weirdos there was a bad idea!!

     

    Well... duh.

  10. Living.

     

    When I was born I had ABO Blood Incompatibility. I jaundiced badly 12 hours after birth, so that would be about 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm. It was 1967, so during the Vietnam era. On an Air Force Base. And I needed a blood transfusion.

     

    Doctors had a very hard time finding someone compatible on base who was sober. They did find someone, and I rallied.

     

    49 years later... very mixed results, mostly in the "why did I bother" column.

    Behold, the graceful corgi! Witness the elegant way she moves. The composure with which she strides through life. In no other animal have man and nature worked together to bring about such perfection.

    ... Apparently there is a Level II Hazmat incident going on two blocks north of us.

     

    O.O 

     

    Well, better than 2 floors beneath you, I guess? Best take the rest of the day off, just to be sure.
