Anything she gets her hands on, straight to the mouth. Book? Must nom. Doll? A sponge for drool. Someone’s finger? In the mouth! Her foot? Gotta taste them toes! 

She’s actually been really good about the cat. Willow, her grandma’s cat, has permitted Sephy to pet her. And Sephy has ever so gently run her hand along her back. No grabbing, no hitting, just open palmed and gentle. It’s freaking awesome.

My fingers were Brigid's favorite chew toy. ::):


She never tried to eat the real cats - just her stuffed kitty. ::): *EDIT* She did , however, suck on Sammy's ears.


And some flavors she quickly learned were her favorite things in the whole world.


You may not think an eight month old baby girl would like curry, but she would have begged to differ. And she still loves curry, so all is good with the world.

Baby’s first book.




I think she’s taking the saying “consuming knowledge” a little too literal :lol:

Our eldest at one point took a bite out of the Very Hungry Caterpillar...literally - we now have a copy of that book with a bite out of it (she was probably about 1 at the time)

Be warned - the Can I Eat This? phase lasts about two years. ::P:


If you're lucky - I'm sure my eldest still hasn't grown out of it (she's 6)

I'm halfway done with my life-sized Pest Drake, aka the Bones 4 wyvern. I should have him done and pics up by Saturday sometime. I'm basing the colors off of the rainbow lorikeet:




With liberties taken of course. The wyvern is shaped less like a parrot and much more like a plucked vulture.

arguably the Wyvern is better behaved :-P

Ooorrr she's hitting Snooze, rolling over, and falling back to sleep. <_<


Fortunately, Brigid has also zonked out.


So, working on stuff for the Occult Investigators game until Megan actually feels like getting up. (Not begrudging her the nap time - she has been dealing with a keyed up Brigid all day.)


Me, I'm just a bit tired because I was playing a shouty bad guy in the after school game. (Not a bad bad guy - think Harry Mudd from Star Trek. If you turn your back on him he won't stab you in the back - but he probably will pick your pocket. Chaotic Neutral, not Chaotic Evil. If the heroes were desperately in need of rescue, he would rescue them - and complain the whole time.)


Picked up a map from the Heroic Maps Hallowe'en sale - the Occult Detectives now have a place to meet up with like minded enthusiasts of the supernatural.


Or at least they will after their first couple of adventures. If all goes well, they will be offered free membership - with all the perks that accompany clubs in The Blight. ::):


The Auld Grump

Sorry about that, honey.


I think I'm coming down with something.


I didn't even get a chance to eat my own chili. ::(: Just getting more and more tired until I zonked. And the chili smelled so good, too.


Thank YOU for letting me sleep, and keeping Brigid Danger ocupied. ::):


I will be so glad when BD really learns how to sing.

She sucks the curry off the chicken with this look of absolute contenment with the world.


THEN she sssloowly chews the chicken and swallows it. Repeating each step with each bit of chicken. She doesn't gobble it, she SAVORS it, each and every bite.


If she had a thought balloon it would just say Mmmm!


She is Daddy's girl. ::): Grump would make curry four days out of the week, if I allowed him to. I know this from experience. <_<


His fingers probably ARE curry flavored!

String instruments use dominant hand for bowing/strumming/plucking and non-dominant hand for pitch control. Woodwinds use dominant hand for the more intricate pitch control (including sometimes controlling multiple levers/holes with the same finger) and the non-dominant for less intricate. Brass uses dominant hand for pitch control and non-dominant for support (and/or less intricate pitch control). Pitched percussion uses left hand for harmony and right hand for melody (I'm not aware of any left-handed versions of piano/harpsichord/xylophone/etc.). Drum kits use dominant foot for bass drum and non-dominant foot for hi-hat.


Singing and single drum/triangle/tambourine/etc. percussion are the only parts of music I can think of where handedness would be completely irrelevant...

One of the people in Grump's folk music group is a campanologist.


He doesn't take his instruments with him.

Well, it's Friday and I get to go home so that's a good thing but its not going to be fun.  Being cooped up in a flying cigar tube for 4+ hours is never any fun.  On top of it all, I don't get home until 11 tonight. Oh well, at least its home.


I hope people had a good week and enjoyed themselves immensely. I have some new woodworking tools waiting for me when I get home so there is some incentive to play.  Now if only I could find some incentive to actually do some work this morning past fixing the crisis of the moment.


@Unruly The day shift people think that all you guys do on night shift is loaf around and try to pass things off to the day shift people.  They don't want to disturb their schedules just so you have more time to drink coffee and relax.  At least that is how every shift group I have ever worked with! ::D:

      Welcome to Getting to Know You, NOVEMBER 2020 Edition.
      The rules as they currently stand ( we all know most of you rebellious lot will ignore most of it, but one can try)
      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 12:00 hours CET. ( Central European Time)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... 
      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.
      All HAIL WOOF!

      Congratulations, by opening this forum post, you have received a quest!
      This quest is a challenge created by the combined forces of @Sirithiliel the Queen Tiamacrab, a Wizard Most Wild @Pezler the Polychromatic, and myself – @Cyradis the Questgiver.
      The challenge is this! Paint a small dragon, letting the dice control the colors!
      The Rules:
      Post in the WIP Forums “_Your Pseudonym_ is taking the random rainbow dragon challenge!” or “_Your Pseudonym_ has accepted the d20 rainbow dragon quest!” something to that extent.

      Select a figure from one of the following: Stormwing (from Bones III), Kryphrixis (from Bones III), Deathsleet (77110), or Ebonwrath (77102).

      You must select the dragon BEFORE rolling for colors. Take a photo with the figure and a clock as proof of order of operations.  
      Roll for colors! Use a d20 and a photo, or an online dice roller with a screenshot as proof of rolling. Or have a fellow forum dweller vouch for your rolls. Use the Color Chart below to determine what the color is that you rolled. There are three rolls. Below is an online dice roller. Most keyboards have a PRT SCRN button that can take a screenshot for you. Then you can paste the photo into Paint to save. I'm sure there are better methods, but that works for me. 


      The first roll determines what your primary base color is. That must be the dominant color on the figure.

      The second roll determines your secondary color. It should be the second color that catches the eye, and second most prevalent color on the figure.

      The third roll determines your miscellaneous color. This should be most of the accent colors that you use, and third most prevalent color on the figure.

      You might need to order paint or go to the FLGS after rolling if you don’t have a given bottle – we’ll be patient and wait for you. If you can’t get a bottle of one of these colors, here is a spreadsheet with equivalent colors from different brands. If you really can't get them, use the closest thing you got to your rolls (let us know what they are please). 

      Reaper #
      Color Name
      Color Description
      Fire Red
      Bright red
      Clotted Red
      Dull red
      Lava Orange
      Volcanic orange
      Orange Brown
      Dull orange

      Bright yellow
      Brilliant green
      Bright green
      Olive Green
      Olive dull green
      True Blue
      Bright blue
      Heather Blue
      Dull light blue
      Imperial Purple
      Deep purple
      Violet Red
      A very misnamed color; somewhere between burgundy and magenta. Not violet.
      Blush Pink
      Very pink
      Earth Brown
      Generic brown
      Terran Khaki
      Light brown
      Mint Green
      Bright pastel green
      Cloudy Grey
      Generic grey
      Marine Teal
      Teal, blueish
      Palomino Gold
      Earthy gold yellow
      Pure Black
      Super black. Critical threat!
      Pure White
      Super white. Critical threat!
      You are allowed to use whatever colors to shade and highlight that you want, as long as the rolled colors are obvious visually.* Example: you can shade a red dragon with purple, brown, or black, but it must always appear as a red dragon. A white dragon shaded with grey must appear as a white dragon, not a grey dragon.   
      You are allowed to use colors outside the ones that you rolled, but they must not take up more visual surface area than any of the others.** Example: your pink, green, and gray dragon is allowed to have bone-beige teeth.  
      The proportions of color on the figure can be however you want, as long as the 1st roll is dominant, 2nd is less, 3rd is less, and anything else smaller. Example: 70% pink, 15% green, 10% gray, and 5% anything else. Or it could be 50% pink, 25% green, 15% grey, and 10% anything else. The tidbit colors are fine wherever, as long as they are minor. 
        Paint your dragon according to the rolls plus your tidbits. Even if it is outrageous. The goal is to make the dragon look as awesome as possible without the benefit of planning color themes. You can add spots, stripes, eye-spots like moths have, or nothing. This is the base challenge. 
        Star 1* You may decide after your initial three rolls to limit your shading colors to your rolled colors mixed with pure black and white. You may still use tidbit colors. Declare this if you go for a Star 1 challenge!
        Star 2** You may decide after your initial three rolls to not use colors outside of your rolled ones and shading colors (so no tidbits like beige teeth, only 3 visual colors shaded however you want). Declare this if you go for a Star 2 challenge!
        Star 3*** You may decide to do both the Star 1 and Star 2 challenges, using absolutely nothing but your three rolled colors, plus black and white for shading. If you do this, you are allowed to use the white for areas like teeth and eyes that could be really weird otherwise (or not - up to you). Effectively, you have 5 colors to work with only, and three of them must be the majority (in decreasing order of prevalence). You gotta be nuts!
        There is no time limit on this. However, if the WIP photos stop showing up at a normal rate and there’s never a Show Off thread, the forum dwellers may gently poke fun at you for adding this to your Shelf of Shame.
        Post to the Show Off forums with a “_Your Pseudonym_ has completed the random rainbow dragon challenge!” sort of title upon completion. Brag about your awesome (or hilarious) dragon. Win all the internet-points. Receive experience and praise. Thus shall end the quest.
        Once the first Random Rainbow Dragon has been completed, we will start up a group Show Off thread to compile all of the dragons in a great flock of rainbowy goodness.

      After seeing my first thread on it (I think it was @Glitterwolf's thread for such an honour) my first thought was pretty much "that looks like a LOT of fun", followed closely by "but I've never painted anything other than a few Space Marines!".  Yeah, well, challenge accepted, because I kind of fell in love with how Ebonwrath looks.
      Yup, I'm going into this technically with very little skill in painting, but while I'm waiting for Ebonwrath (and some gnolls and paint, gnolls are the honour guard for the paint, I swear) I'll have both of the learn to paint kits to work through, and assuming everything pans out (aka assuming I filled out my Canada Post FlexDelivery stuff correctly) I'll be picking those up after work today, and then about a week and a half (ish) later Ebonwrath will be in.  Seems like a semi-insane thing to do, dive right into painting a dragon when you originally were getting paints to steadily work on your WH40k Catachans army (and Skaven, sooooo many Skaven o_O ), but I figure why not have fun with life.  Besides, what better to put all the new skills the LTPK's are designed to help you get a baseline grasp on than a gigantic dragon of cuddles DOOOOOOOM that, in my eyes at least, can be bribed with cookies.
      Some say I'm insane, I say to be a good delivery driver you need just enough insanity...  Not enough to pass the entrance exams, but enough to be perfectly fine wearing shorts in -5C weather.  :P
      Anyways, onto the rolls!

      I wound up rolling 14, 19, and 3....  So Terran Khaki as the main, Pure Black as the secondary colour, and Lava Orange as a highlight.  Well now, that's an interesting mix in my eyes.  I'm not quite certain as to how this mix will pan out, but on the flipside I chose to dive into this headfirst, so I'm also going to give it a whirl as a full on three star challenge.  I'm actually kind of liking the sound of these colours, as I've had a number of different design possibilities come to mind already!

      Obviously, given the current promo and Rictus seeming like a nice and dedicated, honourable skeleton, I had to get a few other items into the cart for free shipping (plus a free skeleton!), and for someone to keep the gnolls in check while Ebonwrath is napping away in it's blister pack.  Can't let the gnolls steal the cookies after all.  Pure Black is included in one of the Learn To Paint Kits, so I didn't add it into the order from Reaper.
      Here's hoping I won't have to make too too much room in my gaming area to work on Ebonwrath ^_^;;;;; (since it's still another two months before I can get a dedicated miniatures area set up, but man am I looking forward to such!)
      EDIT (Jan 7th @ 15:44 MST): Totally forgot to add this in...  For additional information regarding the rainbow dragon challenge, here's the main thread for it!

      I don't have any of the dragons selected for the challenge. I do have the dracolisk, https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/basilisk/latest/77379
      So I'm painting that. 
      Die roll, 13, 18, 2.  Earth brown, palomino gold, clotted red.   Good colors.  I don't have the Earth or Clotted Red but can approximate. 
      Baby needs a bath first.
