You and the "Environmental Science" professor are welcome to use the effete, French-derived, Latinate term. I prefer the Germanic term derived from Old Norse.

 

As should all right-thinking people. :B):

Oh, don't get me wrong.  I deliberately use dirt in front of the faculty.  It's an odd little tension we have.  I'm just respectful of his wishes around students when he isn't around.

August 29: How old are you?

46, and as a geek I'm starting to feel old.

 

At last weekend's fan convention, there was everything I desired in my 20s but couldn't afford. Now I can afford them, but I don't need the extra junk around (minis already take up most of the space).

 

And cosplay everywhere. There were very lovely young women in very attractive costumes, yet part of my brain was thinking "Young lady, you are *not* going outside dressed like that!"

 

My brain now has a "Dad" mode. The day I wore my short sleeve shirt at the convention, I *felt* like a dad.

Born before we walked on the moon, by about a month!

We don't say dirt.  The correct term is soil.

Though, I have to admit, if I ever trick the Env. Sci. professor that espouses that, I'll have a most excellent day!

He's a tough nut to crack...

 

As my old Ag teacher used to say, it only becomes dirt when it is on your floor.

August 30: A friend emails you a $100 Reaper gift certificate, how do you spend it?

 

On both paints and figures. Paints are more needed. Figures more fun. I use my excel wishlist to choose.

Across two months to get the promo figures.

^^wise. Yeah, like that.

Save it to help with the pledge manager add-ons. ^_^

 

Assuming that doesn't work, I have plenty of minis on my Amazon wishlist:

  • 03046: Arron the Conjuror
  • 03186: Wizard's Workshop
  • 02554: Magic Treasure II
  • 60164: Vampire Hunter
  • 60169: Nella Cailean
  • 03149: Justine, Undead Hunter
  • 02591: Vaaron, Fire Sorcerer
  • 02443: S'Kara, Female Skoli
  • 02434: T'Quan, Skoli Warrior
  • 03294: Tobias Winterhorn, Druid
  • 14604: Joeliyn: Sister of the Blade Warlord

Not sure how much that is, but I suspect I've used all or nearly all of the gift cert by now.

Why? You offering?  :p

 

Seriously though, I should use it on a bunch of paint. Have plenty of the Reaper line that I need still. But I also would likely spend it on something like Khanjira or DDS2, etc. and then fill in the rest as needed.

Keep my head down, and try not say what I'm really thinking.

Some days I feel much older physically.

 

Mentally- I still feel like I'm in my twenties.  I have more experiences, but my mindset really hasn't changed.

That.

I will be 45 in a few weeks.

You have more generous friends than i do. I'd spend it on paints and Bones 4. If not Bones 4 then there's a handful of things I didn't get in the other Kickstarters I'd go for.
