  1. My brother is at my parents' for thanksgiving. This is more than a little annoying. since having him visit from out of state is more of a risk than if I did, and also means I can't. So I went to the store and got a part of a turkey from the store this morning. I guess I'll need to figure out how to cook it.
  2. Things here are mixed. Our covid rates have been going up again, but are not yet as bad as they were last spring. I continue to work from home, a situation that seems likely to continue through April at least. Some days it feels like my department are the only ones answering phones at the college. Add to that I've had to pick up a bunch of tasks that weren't supposed to be a part of my job, and have been dealing with a lot of stressed out students who can't reach anyone else, and it's not great. Financially I'm doing pretty well since I'm not spending on commuting costs and have not a lot to spend money on since most of the stuff I would want to do is closed and has been for 9 months or so. In the early part of the year I had been getting a lot of painting done, but in recent months I just can't seem to focus on it at all. Right now I just keep going over what to do about Thanksgiving. I know I should likely stay home, but I just feel guilty about how infrequently I've been able to visit my parents this year.
  3. library. I put the books on the shelves and answered stupid questions.
  4. axe, knife, flint and steel not certain if the axe or a shovel is a better choice, but fairly sure about the rest
  5. my attempts at commerce have met with far greater success than expected. This makes me a bit paranoid
  6. thanks! I ended up doing the bases that way because I was looking at some of them and realized it wasn't immediately obvious which facing they mean to be the front. so I marked it.
  7. I painted the clan side of the recent Battletech kickstarter as clan novacat. There will be a part 2 when I get more mechs. Gladiator Nova and madcat Mongrels Puma and ryoken Dragonflys
  8. Yep, I painted 10, but I don't want to clutter up the thread. I'll try and take good pictures tomorrow.
  9. I finished painting those novacats, and Tom Brady is just getting stomped. This is a very good Sunday
  10. sunday is going well. the giants won, and I've almost finished painting the clan mechs from the battletech ks.
  11. if no one else will bring pizza, I've found this recipe is easy and turns out pretty well. https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/20171/quick-and-easy-pizza-crust/ just add a can of tomatoes or your sauce of choice to the top, and some cheese. also the dough freezes without a problem.
  12. my attempts at ebay seem to be going well. Both the test auctions have more than one bid and a bunch of people watching. I had been afraid I was pricing shipping to high for anyone to be interested, but it seems like people are ok with charging for an appropriately sized USPS flat rate box. now I just need to go get a bunch of those boxes...
  13. interestingly I had to make a map of a part of one of the buildings at work for planning purposes a few years ago, and had a print out made at 1 inch = 5 feet. it looked a bit odd with minis on it. I wish I could take a picture of it, but it's in an office I haven't been allowed into since mid march
  14. ah it is another online convention according to Ron on twitch
  15. 1/56 is about right on height, but if you look at the IMEF they are super wide compared to a real person and would overflow the seats.
  16. suggestion, walmart. this time of year they have a bunch of knock off gijoe and army man sets that include vehicles that can be chopped up to make some good mad max buggies
  17. Here's a pair of robots I built to use for this is not a test. They are a mix of privateer press cyriss bodies, assorted gw, Mantic, reaper, and historical bits, and some wire. Was trying to play up the corrosion and damage in the paint.
  18. I want to go to the mummers parade in philly. I've tried to go a few times but stuff keeps happening
  19. I've started experimenting with selling stuff on ebay to make some space in my apartment. I can't wait to see how I screwed this up
  20. neat looking, what's that tank at the back for? the one that is kind of dragging
