  1. it’s more about the stuff that’s in the kitchen than the stuff that’s not in the kitchen. Like, tons of boxes and tools taking up the counter space. Currently, Sephy’s favorite movie is Pacific Rim. Her grandma is sick of it because everytime Sephy just wants “kaiju!! Stompy robot!” 🤣
  2. If 1 is not strict and 10 is the Catholic Church, I’d say around 5. My parents engaged in what is called “free range parenting” nowadays, but in the 80s it was just parenting. We had rules, if we followed them, things were good, if we didn’t, they came up with creative punishments. Like the time I drew something on a shelf in permanent marker and had to sand it off. I think my parents were more concerned that we grow up to be decent people, than they were concerned about us growing up to be obedient.
  3. Pirate ship, hands down. Unpainted. Smallest is probably a familiar from one of the familiar packs. I don’t think I would. All the periods I’m interested in would probably burn me as a witch.
  4. Well, we got out of our apartment okay. I had to take an extra day, and it wasn’t as clean as I wanted it to be (though far cleaner than most folks’ standards). Our attic is slowly getting set up. It looks very much like a pillow fort. Sephy loves it, because she’s got a window she can stand at and see outside (and yell at everything going on outside). Unfortunately, and predictably, work on the kitchen has stalled out. It’s been a week since anything was done in there. But the gal who is helping us is doing it as a gift, so I’m not going to complain. It would be nice to be able to cook again though. My body and wallet do not care for all this eating out.
  5. There’s lots I haven’t painted. It’d be easier to tell you what I have painted than what I haven’t.
  6. The remodel did not go well. On Saturday my husband called, freaking out because the folks who were helping us with our drywall did one of the most atrocious jobs ever. It’s like they weren’t even trying to do a good job. Hubby was having a full blown panic attack over it, so I came up with a plan (cover the walls with sheets for now, have pros do the drywall next year), and instead of packing and cleaning on Saturday and Sunday, I helped get all the old drywall out of the attic, clean it up, and put up sheets. We have all our furniture in here and most of our stuff is here or in storage, but I still have stuff to pack and I haven’t even started cleaning the apartment. The move out inspection is today and I’m stressed to the max over it.
  7. In processed foods, yes. You don’t need to add salt to canned soup or anything from the frozen food section. But if you’re making mashed potatoes from actual potatoes, or fried eggs, or grilling a steak, add salt. The sodium you get from sprinkling table salt on your food is nothing compared to what’s in processed food, and you get you iodine.
  8. When I write champagne, in my head I say “sham-pag-nee”.
  9. Largest thing, probably a kiddie pool while working at Toys R Us. Heaviest thing, probably my daughter at 40lbs now.
  10. Assuming this is a petting zoo run by a druid, so the animals are there willingly, a bear, an elephant, a red panda, and an owl.
  11. Moving sucks. Moving, while renovating the place you’re moving to, sucks even more. But it’s going well. They got the three windows in on Sunday, one of the kitchen counters in on Monday, electricity in the attic this morning, and the attic fully insulated today. They’ll start putting up the drywall this afternoon. Tomorrow will be the rest of the drywall, then a clean up to prepare the attic for the carpet. I am behind on packing. But will be working on it in the evening and all day Friday.
  12. Just so y’all know, a toddler falling asleep in you is worse than a kitty. Aside from the cute factor, if you wake the toddler up there’s a good chance it’ll throw a tantrum. What’s the cat gonna do? Meow indignantly? Pft.
  13. To prime before paint. My first metal minis have chipping paint because I didn’t know to prime. Currently, I live in an apartment that has mailbox lockers and package lockers. The mailbox locker is pretty big, but what doesn’t fit in there they put a key in the box for one of the package lockers. And if it doesn’t fit in there they usually drop it off at my door. Yes. All of the above, plus some.
  14. I enjoy a good cake donut, with chocolate frosting. Yes. Reaper brush on primer for metal, brown liner for bones, primer again for resin. Usually just use black, but I just got some white and grey primer. At some point I’ll use it.
  15. How bad are your medical bills??? Contestants show off their medical bills. At the end, everyone’s bills get paid. Money would be gone in no time. Well, over the winter there was a bunny that was hiding under my vehicles for warmth. Darn critter would poop right by the drivers door. So gross. I’m told that during the summer, young humans tend to congregate in my work parking lot, throwing trash around, leaning on cars, and sunbathing nude. Not looking forward to that.
  16. Ah yes, the gen Z response to the horror genre. Poor clown thing.
  17. Driving is a necessary evil. It comes with all kinds of stress and expenses. I don’t particularly care for it. Now, if you give me a place I can drive all crazy without having to worry about idiots hitting me and a car that I don’t have to worry about breaking, that might be nice.
  18. I’ve gotten a few. I recall a charcoal like color, a minty color, a turquoise like color. Some other colors.
  19. So, one of Hubby’s birthday presents was a night of babysitting so the two of us could have a date night. We had dinner and went to see Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. I enjoyed it quite a bit. There were quite a few fun Easter eggs, especially for folks who’ve seen all of the Marvel stuff, but also some non-Marvel stuff. The mid-credits scene got me very excited. The end credits scene was hilarious. And I really appreciate that the end titles look so very Whovian.
  20. I successfully made a birthday cake for my husband, and bacon cheeseburgers. I even feel less dead.
