Master (7/8)



  1. Popping in quickly before heading off to work this morning with two things I wanted to share: I saw the following on my way into work yesterday: My husband and I are going to see Brian Adams in concert tonight! Squeeee! That is all.
  2. No, there is a Toby Keith song called 'Red Solo Cup" There is a major difference There's also a Glee cover of that song, which is the only reason I already knew the song existed.
  3. Lately? Nothing is coming to mind.... which is weird. There's usually something weird going on around me...
  4. Here I am, up early, on the bus, heading into the gym before work for the first time since mid December. Meant to start back last week but forgot to wash my gym clothes in all that time and was to busy every evening until this past weekend. Oop. Bus stop is coming up. Gotta go.
  5. I sort of caught up. I read about ten pages after my last time here and then read about ten pages before the current last page. But I think there were about 70 pages total so I've actually just skipped 50. Ah well. Been a busy weekend away from the computer as I was either not feeling well (and thus sleeping) or I was out and about. And now I've just realized it's almost 11:30pm and I have to be up early tomorrow morning so I guess I should head off for bed. Be well everyone!
  6. When you say "the first two Star Wars movies" do you mean the first two released (Ep IV & V) or the first two chronologically (Ep I & II)?
  7. Travel-wise, it has to be the Disneyland Resort. I love amusement parks and I love being child-like and doing whimsical things. My husband and I spent half our honeymoon there (the other half was in Maui, HI) Event-wise, gotta be VCON. I love that convention, the guests, the people, the art, the merchandise. I look forward to it every year, whether I'm involved with the organization or not. Every-day-wise, at home, working on hobbies of one kind or another (whether that's at the computer planning RPGs, following up on convention emails, doodling in Photoshop, Illustrator or Flash, or sitting at a table painting minis, sketching, working on a jigsaw puzzle) Friday - came home early after battling the day with a killer sinus headache and went to bed. Got up so I could eat something at 10pm and went back to bed. Saturday - forgot to set my alarm, woke up at 10a instead of 9a and still had a headache. Had a shower, made offspring get up and told to have a fast shower (not an easy task for a 16 year old male!) since the 11a errand was getting him to his Math tutor. Rescheduled the 10:30a errand for 11:15a. Ran errands, came home, reminded hubby offspring needed to be picked up at 1p and went back to bed. Woke up at some point in the evening, headache still around but lessened. Made myself get up to eat and then stayed up for a few hours. Sunday - got up at 8:30a with no headache! (Joy!) Mum picked me up at 9:15a and we went to a brunch for her sorority's founder's day[1]. Helped her sell tickets for the alumnae charity raffle, ate yummy food, listened to a few speeches, saw my mum burst into tears when the other alumnae honoured her loyal dedication to the sorority over the past 50+ years by creating a new award named after her to be awarded annually to collegiates who exemplify the qualities she has, and then won two prizes in the raffle - a copy of the Apples to Apples game and a Chinese silk embroidery of a kitten examining either a grasshopper or a mantis. [1] My mum is an Alpha Omicron Pi. I am not - I'm an Alpha Phi - because the AOII chapter at the University of British Columbia was shut down due to reduced numbers a few years before I started university. They were able to recolonize at UBC four years ago. Came home, started some laundry, lay down for a nap, got up, put laundry in the dryer, ate dinner and am now prowling the Reaper forums. So, it started off poorly but ended well.
  8. Thanks! dsmiles sent me a PM, and it worked like a charm! gmail = 1, Verizon = 0. It looks like the issue is sorted out for the future. I'd love to join in on the next one! 2cp; I vote Ironhammer gets put near the beginning of one of the circuits for next time? Why thank you! It would actually be kind of nice to be a bit further up the chain. I'm a fairly obsessive mini converter, with scads of nicely converted figures which I then never get round to painting, and I've often thought it would be nice to see what someone else could do with some of the stuff I've made. I figured I could drop a few of my pieces into the box, and then see how people paint them up! Being further up the chain means more people would get a crack at it. Actually, wouldn't you want to be right at the beginning then? So you get them in the box and then everyone after you can have a chance to pick one up.
  9. Mmmm. Pocky. My favourite is dark chocolate with crushed almonds. Om nom nom nom!
  10. You think those would be hard to run in? Try these: I mean, sheesh. Srsly? Those are hawt.

  12. It's -1 here... Uh... That's Celsius...so, for you United Statesians that's... Uh... Divide by... 5 times... 9... Add 32... About 30F! (or, I could just have subtracted 1.8 from 32, but it's more fun to do so the math!)
  13. Hm. Have to go with Ancient Egypt. I've been fascinated with the archaeology of the region since I was a wee little sprout. I have a framed, 3'x4' poster of Tutankhamen's funeral mask on my wall which I purchased when "he" toured the US and was in Seattle in 1978 (I was 10). I did go to see the more recent tour and while I enjoyed the exhibit I was rather disappointed when the only posters they had available were a mere 12"x18" and weren't very picturesque either - I had thought about getting a partner for my existing one. My love of Ancient Egypt indirectly led to my first undergraduate degree in Classical Studies (Studies Ancient Rome & Greece). My university didn't have a department that covered Egyptology so it was the next closest thing. (Now why I decided that was the degree to take at all is a whole 'nother ball o' wax.)
  14. Not to mention a werewolf, a puss in one boot, an enchanting sorceress, a talking blue berry and a sentient goblet of red ambrosia.
