  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 s
  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
  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
  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.
  15. You're reading Joe Haldeman!? Cool! He's the Author Guest of Honour for VCON 40 (the convention I help ruin run in Vancouver, in October 2015). (edited to fix a rather egregious autocorrect error )
  16. I'm Batman!Always be yourself.Unless you can be Batman. Because Batman is awesome!
  17. Bah. I had about three posts multi-quoted and then my smartphone browser crashed (Windows Phone 8.1 version of IE). As it's been doing this for a couple of days now, and there's a known problem between it and my online banking site, I just installed a new one. In any case: Re eating odd foods, I'm like many who have eaten things that seem odd but aren't really. Kangaroo, Ostrich, Musk Ox, Camel, Escargot. I recently tried deep fried chicken knee tendons at a local, authentic (vs. Americanized) Chinese restaurant. They were actually pretty tasty although I could only eat a few - fried food
  18. Boy, miss a day and a half of reading and there's 60+ new pages. Just finished catching up with the last seven, that's it for this morning for me. And now for something random.... Make a mini meme - replace any word on a movie title with the word "miniature". E.g., Gentlemen Prefer Miniatures The Grinch Who Stole Miniatures The Sound of Miniatures.
  19. I think the thing that amazes me the most is how extensive a conversion you're doing in metal! Back in the old days, when I used Testors enamel paints on 28mm Ral Partha figures, I would never even have considered trying to do any sort of conversion - the idea of hacking up one figure to use parts on another figure was just not something that even crossed my mind. Getting back into the hobby with the Bones KS1 and finding this forum opened my mind to the possibilities .... but I would never be willing to tackle something even remotely like this in metal. So hats off to you, Mr. MetalChaos
  20. I don't think I've ever seen that many around the Vancouver metro area, but I discovered one in December 2013 in Toronto when I went to SMOFcon the "Convention Runners Convention" out that way. It was in the hotel (The York) and not only did it sell the most gorgeously designed pipes and pipe tobacco the proprieter ALSO collected and sold classic painted metal soldiers! I took photos because I thought some of the soldier paint jobs would be appreciated here, only I don't think I ever uploaded them to be shared.... must go fix this terrible omission. The reason I found it was because of the
  21. 'lo everyone! My son and I de-decorated (un-decorated?) the Christmas tree and removed our exterior Christmas displays (nothing dramatic - a few lights, a door wreath and a tiny LED light deer). My husband has gone off with the, now nekid, woody perennial of the coniferous type (having wrapped in up an old fitted sheet first because dry needles!) to the local fire department who, for a donation, will take it and put it through a wood chipper. He also has our one steamer trunk and one Rubbermaid container full of decorations, etc. to drop off at our storage locker. We've swept and vacuumed th
  22. For me, my "family" is almost entirely people who either are, are married to people who are, have been adopted by people who are, or (in my in-laws case) who adopted people who are biologically related to me or my husband (he and his twin sister were adopted). There is also one non-related family whom I personally think of as "pseudo-family" (which, as it happens, would be LittleBlueberry's family).
  23. Okay, so I didn't go to bed. Instead I started creating a Miniatures Inventory Pintrest board.... http://www.pinterest.com/strawbjamm/miniature-inventory/ Now I'm really going to bed. Really. Truly. I mean it. (anybody want a peanut?)
  24. Well folks, I've browsed around for a bit and now it's 1:30a so it's definitely time for bed. Hopefully the increased page count won't be quite as bad when I get back here the next time.
