Yes, it was.

No, it wasn't. (I mean it was safe,  'cause I packed it up safely, but it wasn't in a 'safe place'.

To avoid the "I put it in a safe place" delemma, I actually have a box marked "A Safe Place" If I ever feel the need to put something in a safe place, it goes there. Then I know where to find something I put in a safe place.  

 

It really surprised me that this works.

Crates (Large and Small)(2)

 

 

That small crate is about as unassuming as it gets. In fact, it is so unassuming that they covered it with the Bones logo.

 

And it's so unassuming that I cannot find it in my stash anywhere! It's tiny, but I expect it is in the same bag with the two pillars from Bones 2. Which I can't find anywhere. Most of my B2 stuff was put into cases, but I think this would still be in the bag. But since I've spent two hours searcing everything I own, I think it's time to move on and paint something else. I'm sure I'll run across the box too late to do what I'm planning. Oh well. There's always 2020.

Why? Would this be like putting an extra-dimensional space inside of another extra-dimensional space? 

I never get Bags of Holding... I think my DM thinks I'll test what happens. And is probably correct. :)

That's... so incredibly brilliant! I don't know why I never thought of that before.

 

I used to have a particular box I'd put papers into when I needed to put them in a Safe Place. I really need to get that set up again....

 

Huzzah!

Well, it is official. Barring a miracle, I will not be at this year's Reaper Con. Long story short, the wife is getting a new job, but it requires more schooling, the 'sign on bonus' does not even cover half of tuition. She is trying to get financial aid, but, well we will see. It will mean more money in the long run, but for this summer and even the rest of this year we are dead broke. I hope everyone has fun this year. I might be able to make next year, but I will not hold my breathe.

And I can't forget (let's see how bad this sets @buglips*the*goblin off):

 

Heyyyyy... weren't you River Widows last year?  Anyway, you can wear any ribbon or shirt you want (why you would choose not to be The Coolest I don't know, but you could) - so long as All Your Stickers Are Belong To Us.  

 

Also, you got a Z Ed shirt before I got mine (I ordered one to check the sample quality).  It looks okay enough in the picture, what do you think of it?  Does it pass muster?  That batch is made differently from the original set, so there would necessarily be some variance but I don't know how much.

Paws through various badges & ribbons. Must have made a successful Stealth check last year, infiltration succeeded.

 

Nope, no River Widows ribbon on last years ribbon train and if memory serves correct, stickers went to the appropriate team, Blood Wolves.

It looks really good. They managed to get the printing blended really well. I haven't sent it through the was yet, but it looks like it has been worn and washed a couple times already. Mine doesn't have the "new" stiffness that the other shirts have.

My heart, it is broken.  Well.  I will do what I did lat year, and simply pretend you're a River Widow Cool Kid.  I don't think I'd have the heart to exile you to the parking lot to go mad from the sun.

There will be a noticeable variance when compared directly with the original, but the originals were made with a different (and more expensive) process that wasn't viable for single-unit orders.  But if they're still pretty good and not horrid, it's probably the best we can manage.  This is my fault for not considering that the original gag might have some legs, so I didn't try to make it more Z friendly.  I could have saved myself a lot of work cleaning up that image, actually.  So I'm glad the end result is at least halfway decent.

I can sympathize with you. To get my current job took three years of studying and eleven thousand dollars out of pocket. Had to get a loan and sell my motorcycle. Worth it in the end? Absolutely. Lousy at the time? Absolutely

Got mine too, though it's a polo shirt. (The ponies would have been devastated otherwise.)

 

Decent quality print (slight blurring on the edges of the black block on a cursory inspection, but nothing out of the ordinary) and good quality shirt.

Classy choice.
