  1. You're not the first one to tell me that. Maybe next time I should try that...
  2. It's been a while since I stopped by here. This counts as a mini, right?
  3. Well, I wasted a bunch of bases and greenstuff just now. I got impatient and used a heat gun to try and speed up the process a bit, and I warped the bases into uselessness. Go me.
  4. So last week a coworker severely injured his neck by passing out at home and hitting the floor hard, and he had to have surgery. I learned yesterday that the surgery was to straight up remove 3 vertebrae and replace them with a metal cage. Today I looked it up, just to try and figure out how long he's gonna be out of work, and I read that after that kind of surgery the person is usually discharged from the hospital the next day and is "recovered" in 6-8 weeks. I can't believe that. I can understand those kinds of numbers for my arm getting a surgical plate because the bone is still there and you can't really kill yourself by reinjuring your arm. But for that major of a neck surgery where you literally lose 3 vertebrae? Holy crap!
  5. My butt is so powerful it can recreate Jackson Pollock paintings. But since I don't put my phone in my back pocket it was my thigh that dialed out. And that jerk couldn't even recreate cave paintings. But seriously, why do so many people put their phones in their back pockets? I'd be terrified of breaking the thing, either by cracking the screen or bending the whole body, by sitting on it. I can kind of understand why women do it, because of the whole pockets BS they have to deal with, but I know all sorts of men who I know are wearing clothes with deep side pockets but still put their phone in their back pocket.
  6. Well, I pulled an idiot today. I was on the phone with my mom while I was at work, and it turned out she was driving down the street I was currently walking on. So she pulls off the street and we start talking in person, and I put my phone in my pocket. Apparently when I put my phone in my pocket I accidentally hit the emergency call button and it dialed 911. So 911 gets an open line call from me where they can hear me talking to my mom about how my fire alarm went off this morning, and how it might have been the CO detector in it going off. So they call me back and I have to explain to them that I somehow managed to pocket dial them. Made me feel real dumb. Meanwhile, on Saturday I have to stop by my mom's house after work to pick up her chimney brush and a set of tires I had delivered to her house. The only thing I have that could be putting out CO is my water heater, because my furnace is off for the summer, and the water heater vents into my chimney. Chimney swifts like to build their nests in chimneys(go figure) and I know I've had a couple families in mine over the years, so I'm thinking that maybe they blocked enough of the airflow with their nests to allow CO to build up. So I'll take care of that, hoping that there aren't any currently occupied nests, and see if the alarm goes off anymore.
  7. Well, downtown now reeks of diesel. A pickup truck that had a fuel pump in the bed had the fuel line for the pump disconnect while they were driving. They went at least a quarter mile before they were either informed of it by another driver or decided to actually pay attention to people who were trying to inform them. A good portion of it was on the outskirts of downtown, in a primarily residential area, and they've got 3 blocks right through the middle of downtown coated in diesel. The fire department is out there spreading spill cleanup stuff around while still trying to find where it actually started. It's nauseating to be outside. And a lot of the spill is right outside our office so I wouldn't be surprised if the smell started coming inside soon enough.
  8. I painted. I got my Reaper order on Saturday, and I broke open one of the blisters today. My Anhurian swordsmen are now painted, except for one that I didn't need as I already had one from years and years ago when I first put paint to mini. He was literally my first figure from the old Reaper LTPKs. Because I already had him painted up I decided that I would follow a similar paint scheme for these guys as they're going to become the majority of my Frostgrave warband. I've got some Anhurian bowmen and spearmen to paint up still, as well as the men at arms for both Malvernis and Breonne. That way I can have a little variety if I want to when one of them dies in game and needs to be replaced. Here's my first mini ever, circa 2012, next to his new counterpart. Obviously I haven't improved much, but I've also painted a whole lot less than I thought I would have. Most of my improvement has been thanks to the quality of my brushes going up. More pictures of those two and the rest of the group in the spoiler below. All told, I got the 3 new ones primed and painted in about 4 hours. Which is fast as heck for me. It was also my first attempt at anything resembling freehand painting, which was a last minute addition. I wanted it to look like a stylized ü, but when I did it I thought it looked too much like an old smiley emoticon, so I added a couple extra lines. Still looks like a crappy emoticon, though.
  9. Eh, whatever. Same difference. It's taking a much weirder route than my previous Reaper orders ever have. Usually they hit Fort Worth, then end up in Kentucky, then PA, then back down to WV. This one has gone from Mesquite to Roanoke, VA, and is currently in Charleston, WV. Well, since CC is built on top of FastCAD it only makes sense that AutoCAD would be able to do pretty much all the same things. If you're familiar with CAD software you should have a much quicker time learning CC if you ever do decide to pick it up. They've got some great style and symbol sets available.
  10. That's how I am with it, but with me it's because I want a setup of 2 large monitors for it, possibly 3. A minimum of one for the program itself and one for the Tome of Ultimate Mapping or other tutorials. CC absolutely requires a lot of screen real estate to use properly, especially when you're trying to learn it.
  11. I have to wonder how much Hasbro is behind the changes to Magic sets as well. It used to be that you'd get three expansion sets over the course of a year, one large and two small, that were thematically linked. The three sets were known as either a block or a cycle, and they'd put out novels for each set that told the story of the cycle. Now you get two large sets per year, and maybe one small set, that aren't linked. And they novels have been dead for 10 years. Granted, the novels weren't some literary genius work, but I've got about 20 of them that are super worn out, and another 10 that are decently battered, from how much I've read them over the years. The Artifacts cycle and Invasion cycle books in particular have seen a LOT of reading because they're just plain good pulp. The one good thing I will say is that it seems they've finally released a lot of them as ebooks, so I can grab "replacements" for the some of the ones that got water damaged years ago thanks to a leaky window AC.
  12. Nah, he just looks at it, figures out where to insert Elminster, and sells it as a new book.
  13. Apparently my package hopped a flight in Mesquite, because it's now made its way to Nashville. Let's see how many days it sits there before it makes its way to its next stop, which I think will be Lexington, KY. Then from there it will go to Warrendale, PA before coming back down into WV. Whether it gets handed to the USPS in PA or in WV will remain to be seen, because I've had it go both ways in the past. Either way, it won't be getting delivered before I go on my "camping" trip even though it should have been.
  14. Gotta love UPS. There's a reason I completely refuse to use them if I'm the one shipping something. My Reaper order has been in their possession for 5 days, and in that time it has moved maybe 100 miles, from Denton to Fort Worth, and then to Mesquite. I just want my metal Anhurians so I can start putting together a decent looking Frostgrave warband that has some more variety than the Bones ones I already have! I want those kite shields and not-floppy weapons!
  15. I shall now refer to my thighs as Australia...
