Getting to Know You :: December 2018 Edition


Recommended Posts

Welcome to Getting to Know You, December 2018 Edition.

 

The rules as they currently stand:

 

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 between 8:00 hours and 13:00 hours GMT (UK / Europe Time: some Zero Dark Thirty hour for US time zones)
4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... (Or Talespinner, he started it.)
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 will usually take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday. 

 

December will begin ^ with such a question because the month begins on a Saturday.

Mostly B for the first part; but my mother would tell you it’s A. I think it’s really a case of intending to, but getting caught short of time with whatever other activities occur.    As for

To be honest, I don't play much anymore.  The sculpting has become nearly all-consuming of my available free time.   Does that mean I'm prepping for other people's games? 

An Elder Sign, over a bow. My wife made the sign. :)

A) Ima mean one! :lol:

 

Actually, I've tried over my years of adulting, but I usually forget until it's too late. I've even bought little boxes of cards (usually with owls on them), but still forgotten.

As for favorite card, my talented younger son draws cards each year. Mine from 2016 was this, riffing on my Bronze Age interests:

F. I have no friends. Only slightly joking. Never did send many cards and I've drifted away from the few people that I used to send to. All the ones I would send a card to I will see in person. The wife handled it for years but has slacked off too.

I went electronic years ago, but recently got back into sending cards.  I'm part of a penpal group that still values the old ways. It's nice to receive a sentiment, even from a stranger.  I will post some later.

Never sent a Christmas card in my life.

 

I don't think my family *ever* sent Christmas cards. Received a few, sure, but never sent any.

 

Closest thing to a genuine card is the Christmas tip to the paper boy/girl.

I'm some sort of mix of A and B, it could be said.  Never really saw the point behind them, truth be told.  Parents send me one every year, usually with gift cards of varied values, and as of late, places I'll actually shop at. 

 

I've been tempted to send cards with my Secret Santa packages though.... 

 

 

Edit: biggest reason why though? Cards are expensive, most are at least $4 per card, and then it's another dollar on top of that to send the thing..

      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.
