Are you thinking about doing that this weekend or soon?

 

Thanks, Crowley!

Once a week I head down to the resturant and enjoy my usual meal. Cheeseburger cooked rare, so as the balance the sanguine humour, and a pile of fries, washed down with several pots of coffee. (The waitress doesn't even bother with a menu, she just asks if I'm eating. This is the benefit of always ordering the same thing, it makes everyone's life a little easier.) I don't go on the weekends as it's too hectic, I go on Weds after the lunch rush ends.

 A trip to a bookshop, game-store or tradeshow with enough money burning a hole in my pocket that I can buy whatever takes my fancy without having to think twice...

 

 This isn't going to happen anytime soon, but when I pay off ship in September the sky is the limit!

Hmmm...  I'd probably have to go with a good, king sized donair.  Mmm, so good, so tasty.  Makes for a nice treat. 

 

We won't comment on calories because I suspect it's a LOT of calories.

I do know a place where I can get pies, cheesecake, or pastries...for dessert...and that is after having a cheesesteak sandwich that is made with real actual cheese and pecan smoked rib-eye.

 

***Need to think of a non-food, non-calorific treat.***

Nope. Can’t. They are closed Sundays and Saturday is planned out already.

New minis, terrain, or a wargame rulebook.

Recently cashed in some brownie points with wifey to buy a new 3'x3' neoprene gaming mat. I'm looking at getting a couple of new rulebooks soon as well (Dracula's America and Gaslands), and possibly some post-apocalyptic shanties from Fogou models (I've accumulated a lot of brownie points).

Let us know what you think of Dracula's America. I'm very tempted by some of the figures, (Undead Confederates!) But I would like to know if the rules are fun before commiting myself to ANOTHER rule set.

Seems to come pretty highly recommended. I know Froggy has played it a fair bit of you want to pick his brain.

One thing that stands out to me from what I've read is that to really get a sense of immersion in the game, you need to have appropriate miniatures and terrain. To that end I've snagged a set of cardboard western buildings from eBay for cheap until I can afford to buy a bunch of 4Ground ones.

Hmm, no one thing jumps out. Most common is the occasional Starbucks run (I'm not an everyday guy). However a good book or game are right up there too. Favorite might be a good seafood dinner (lobster, crab, etc.) but that is most rare too being as how I look very in the middle of nowhere Illinois.

I haven't figured that out yet. I spent so long in 'crisis/survival' mode that it's been kinda hard to break out of that style of thinking now that I have a decent job and enough money.

The Big Treat when I was still a Long Islander was a Carvel  sundae. Here in Texas that translates into a Dairy Queen sundae.

I don't think the Big Treat will be happening any time soon.

A trip to Origins.  I will on Wednesday.   A close second is a trip to a bookstore.  Next will be Tuesday.

This is kind of why I picked this question. :ph34r: We rarely have anything to spare in our budget (it took a lot for my husband to convince me to get ReaperCon classes) and I struggle with justifying things for myself. I was hoping to try out some free ideas. ::P:

A doll or minis, sometimes a dress, occasionally a ridiculous amount of shrimp. 

 

I actually got a new doll before we left on this trip. Starfire, from the DC girls line. I didn't get a  chance to take her out of her box though, but she's beautiful.

      It's time again for a year-end roundup of the figures I managed to finish last year. These are the figures I finished during the calendar year of 2018, which was, let me tell you, another ... interesting year.

      I was absent from here for much of 2018 (starting mid-August 2017), but that doesn't mean I wasn't painting. I hope to post a bunch of pics over the next week detailing all the minis I painted before August 2018. March featured a ton of stuff for convention GMing and I also painted a bunch for Tomb of Annihilation. And just whatever I felt like.
      I'm going through stuff elsewhere to see what's been done and soon I'll be posting the list of minis (and also linking to other show-off threads).
