    So I get home from work and what do I find in the building foyer? Free beer!

    Seriously. Someone left 5 bottles of cider under the table in the foyer. I took one because why not? It's 130am, if someone wanted to remember their beer they'd have remembered it by now.


    It's... mediocre. I have the feeling I'll be leaving the remaining bottles below for someone else to thieve. Still, free beer.


    Well at least the price was right.

    Pay it forward, buy someone a beer later (maybe better quality though).

  2. Well I survived my mother's visit without much awkwardness. Worst thing that happened was her asking if I was ashamed of having her stay - because I didn't specifically mention her in a Facebook post about my son's birthday (despite including a couple of photos of the two of them). :rolleyes:

    1. It's not about her, it's about the kid.

    2. It's not my job to placate her insecurities.

    3. Some people take Facebook far too seriously.

    My mother arrives in a few minutes to stay with us for a week. She hasn't talked to my wife for the better part of a year because wife added my dad's new partner on Facebook.

    I am nervous. :unsure:


    Looks like we're just pretending nothing happened, so far at least. It's her usual MO and probably the best I could have hoped for.

    Ahhh! I used to do so good when I was the old question person and I would say season instead. I'm sorry, friends. ::):


    Well, for a less smart-elf answer, wife and I will have finally paid off our honeymoon loan by the end of next month. So having more money freed up will be nice.

    Nope.  I got Infinity War for my Birfday.  Marvel hit it quite nicely (I need to send a thank you card for that).  As to games, nope.  No trips.  I have my son's annual, but that's a day thing. 


    Other than that, I'm planning on boring.  Lots and lots of boring.


    Boring can be good. My mother is coming to stay with us tomorrow for a week, I'd love a week of boring instead.

    Try crossing the Nullarbor Plain in a car some time. There's a section of the highway called the Ninety Mile Straight (I think it's slightly over 90 miles) and you can easily see over the top of the plants from a standard height car seat.


    I'd never driven so straight for so long before going to the US and driving on an interstate highway.

    Driving up the California coast was a much more familiar experience.

    No one said you have to play this version with your minis ... FUBAR has a star wars mod, but I'm not big on the system (ymmv) ... then their is old school "star wars miniatures battles" by west end games, still liked all these years later ... personally I'd love to see a sci fi version of Bolt action with a  universal point system to build you own forces ...


    Oh absolutely, it would have been handy to have a game come out that was specially designed for the background.

    Personally I'll be waiting for Ganesha Games' Harder Than Steel (hopefully this year).

  8. Yeah I was really hoping (with Imperial Assault first and then Legion) for a game that would let me get some use out of all the WotC prepaints that I've got. Doesn't seem to be feasible with Legion, though.

    I've heard that the starter set is pretty bare-bones in what it gives you as well. Not enough dice, unbalanced forces etc.

    My husband and I had an incredible server at a restaurant recently and we exchanged wild stories. We try to be super nice customers because we understand the pain....

    May 8: Do you have the patience and willpower for customer service or retail industries? Do you have any crazy stories?


    I've been working at McDonald's on and off for the last 18 years, so... yeah. I'm very good at it, too. Probably why my boss made me the customer experience manager for my restaurant.

    Crazy stories... we're in a student town so... I've seen people thrown over the counter, nude people running through the drive thru, fist fights, food fights, shopping trolleys are frequently left in the parking lot, and so on.

    Honestly though, they're the exception and most people are perfectly nice. It's important not to fall victim to negative confirmation bias.

    We have 2 canola-crushing plants just to the NW of town(which is the direction the wind is usually from), the railways that go past my place head straight to them. When the plants are in production, the town smells like farts.


    See we have Rotorua in NZ, which smells like farts all the time.

    Spicey Oriental Snack Sized Sausauge Rolls.

    Mixing Ground Beef with some dried Nasi Goreng Veggies, Garlic and Sambal Badjak, put that in small Puff Pastry squares, glaze with egg and bake in oven at 220 celsius for 25 minutes.




    Freakin' love me some sausage rolls. I've made some using my meatloaf recipe before and it was amazing.

    My go-to for party food to make is probably deviled eggs. I like to mix up the seasonings pretty regularly.

    To eat, I'm all over a cheese board/antipasto platter if there is one.

  12. My domestic online retailer finally got the beholder in stock today!

    They went up this afternoon and I saw them listed as "in stock" before going out to a work dinner at 5:30.

    A couple of hours later, part way through the meal, I mentioned the beholder mini to a buddy of mine and he checked their website to have a look at it. There were two left, so he bought them for us straight away, and now they're sold out. In the space of a few hours. :blink:

    I just got back from donating my old desk.


    We carried it a mile to the thrift store.




    Kudos for the commitment. I usually put old furniture up on an online auction site for $1 reserve, buyer must pick up. Things usually go, and I can at least buy myself an ice cream.
