Weekend Question, April 

6-7-8: What have you done lately to improve your SitRep?

 

(SitRep :: Situation Report) This could be advancing toward a life goal,  working on a health issue, learning a new recipe ...however BIG or small... just something that made things better.

 

I accepted an offer to do PhD research in Vancouver in fall. I got the rest of my data plotted for my masters thesis and I've started writing (I can do it... chugga chugga... ahhhhhh). I actually went to the doctor for the sinus infection, and following instructions, have started feeling better. I'd forgotten what breathing was like. I have learned to cook brussell sprouts (balsamic vinegar, garlic, and honey are key).

Not bad, but I think I'd have given them a Passover. 

I am indifferent, though I have an academic sense that it's beneficial.   What I really want is to have shakers FOR my paint bottles. As in, some sort of goblins in a cage that will continua

it would not be a normal paint.   Glitter Medium!   Turning any colour into a glitter variant.

If you were in charge of your very own Planet...

 

Question, April 5: Would you rather be Pope, Emperor, Dictator for Life or High King??

 

None of the above actually.  It all sounds like a lot of work . . .

Emperor.  But I will not have my minions dressed as German Troops from the 1930's and 1940's, Roman Legionnaires, or even the great Khan's troops.  They were eventually defeated and I want my legions of Terror to have better morale than that.  In all seriousness, I would like an enlightened empire, something akin to a parliament, with the Emperor able to veto some of the more egregarious crap that is not in the people's interests.  And when the Parliament decides to try to overthrow the Emperor, they meet the legions of terror.  :devil:

I found employment and it is exactly what I want to do.  I actually turned down a job that was more lucrative, but the hours were horrendous and meant that I would have lost the more important thing, time with my children.  I also scheduled an annual health exam for reviewing my anxiety med. I'm almost a year out from my big breakdown.

I've very slowly been cleaning up the hobby area. Also, been doing hobbies to occupy time instead of tv/video games.

I worked in the East Kingdom Coronation kitchen most of Friday and Saturday and then successfully oversaw (mostly by staying out of people's way and occasionally pointing people in the right direction) five hundred people cleaning up and exiting the event site in less than an hour.

 

I spoke to a few folks about gathering more information and plans for our Shire's History Booth at the EK 50th Anniversary Event in June.

 

I had a job interview Friday and signed up to attend a Job Fair Tuesday.

Love this question and the answers - always love to hear that people are taking care of themselves!

 

As for me - I got my coffee and Imma drinking it.  I know it's a small thing but coffee improves my SitRep immensely.

My answer to this is that:

—I bought tires 

—I bought a sticker

—I reconnected with a friend I had not heard from in more than 30 years...

—I discovered STōK coffee. 

 

Three of ^ those four are interrelated. 

 

I cannot take the credit:

The preceding weekend question was suggested by @Thes Hunter (...and the latest installment in a series).

Question, April 9: How many different avatar images have you used on the Reaper forums?

 

Just the one; re, it took me FOREVER to figure out how to load the pic. I don't ever want to have to do that again.

AND the Little Guy suits me fine. He is something I made from scratch. PLUS he reflects my attitude on life & inner

being; that is he looks nuts.

Just the one -- assuming you do not count the default image before I selected one.

      The rules: as they were last month (in addition to all regular forum rules) except where I sneakily changed them:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question. †
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day, a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... ††
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted sometime before 1 AM Reaper time (US Central).
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to Talespinner or Morihalda… 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
      8. Pix always welcome.
       
       
      The first question will need to be posted after a brief (10 minute) pause to foil the merging of posts.
      The footnotes, because I can't resist doing †††footnotes:
       
      † I will aim for 0600 Reaper/Nottingham time.
      ††  If subs and backstops could wait until 11AM in Reaper/Denton's timezone to see if I remember.
      ††† …because I re-remembered how to do the dagger ( † ) symbol.

      1. Every day a question will be posted (but see rule 7).

      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer the question of the day before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
