For the record, I went home after a few hours. I ran out of coffee and my partner had moved onto something else in life so I found a spot where I could stop writing and went home. We even ran Pathfinder tonight.

Good to hear all is well.  Small things can seem so important at the moment but really are but like a flash: bright and disturbing but, in the end, pointless.  Hope the pathfinder session went swell!

$15 for a can of pringles?!


Yup! Size of the can is 2.5 oz (about 5 inches tall)

I might know where to get the Sour Cream flavor Pringle’s cans four $1.44 each. And I am talking the full-height, 4.8 ounce cans...


...for $15 I could lay my claws on 10 of those! Or maybe just nine if there is sales tax.

I never could really see the appeal in Las Vegas, but then again, I'm not a fan of a lot of lights, especially bright flashy ones at night, and heat.  Oh gawds, the heat. 


Plus, after having watched enough episodes of Galactic Hunter (they're in Arizona) there are some rather scary looking spiders down there. 


Then again, I'm also not one for gambling.  If I'm going to spend a bunch of money, I'm going to do it with friends locally, and check out various food things. Or shopping.  Shopping is SO. MUCH. FUN.  Well, hoodie shopping anyways, I'm a whiny brat of a stick in the mud when it comes to footwear shopping, I hate shopping for shoes. 


Or playful answer...   I'd rather take the risk of an empty wallet by visiting my local airbrushing store.  Donna has maple candies!


Oh I agree on the spending. One reason why I told myself I was mostly just gonna spend at LVO, the other days was more or less to support me being here (food, beverages, etc etc). Thou I did find a hat with a squirrel on it. Tempting as it was, I left it in the store. There is always tomorrow thou. ^_^


Day 2 of LVO/LV vacation: After getting back from lunch I fell asleep on the couch in my room. I guess the last couple days finally caught up with me. So other then up to lunch, not much to report on today. I did watch a little bit of the NHL all-star game (inbetween sleep & such), but I did wake up to GotG 2, so hey at least a great movie was on. Currently watching Dr Strange. I think after that I'll head down to the 1st floor & see what's going on this late in the evening.

These were made by my Grilfriend, not my phone yet, I will take a pic later.

Brutus would like to point out that sleeping is an action.

Finally went down at around 3:00 am as I knew at least a pizza place was open. While not as busy as it was around 11 am, it was still busy. About the only difference was women were in their nightlife outfits (many were very gorgeous) & probably more drunks (met some friendly ones in the elevator up, I'm not gonna judge).


Other then that, not much to report, other then my next door "neighbor" is obnoxious. They must be a young person, couple, whatever. When they are in the bathroom, they've got a speaker that blares out heavy bass music & such + they've got buddies that come over & are loud. Other then that, it's pretty quiet up on the 10th floor.


I love the signs saying this is a smoke free hotel, yet, I've seen people smoking up a storm everywhere here. Seen someone holding a cig while walking the "deadman walkin'" to the elevator, seriously, it's a very long hallway & my room is near the end & of course since we are in Nevada, Mary J comin from a few rooms as I walk past. (thou I'm use to that coming from Oregon, reminds me of one of my next door neighbors....::P:)

I've found Trader Joe's beers to all be solidly decent. Nothing amazing, but I wouldn't turn them down. 

I picked up the oatmeal stout to use as a cooking beer.


Megan and I each had a bottle, then Megan had a second.


It is a decent beer, and yes, much better than Budweiser. (Budweiser is my go to cooking beer - when making bread, or pot roast, or other recipe calling for a can of beer, I can sacrifice the Bud to the gods of cooking with ne'er a qualm of guilt.)


Oatmeal stout is roughly the same price, and tastes better - so it can be used for both cooking and quaffing.


It is almost exactly half as expensive as the Allagash Black that is my current favorite sipping beer.


And Allagash Black would not be a great cooking beer - containing too many flavors that might conflict with whatever is being cooked.


Oatmeal Stout is a nice, simple flavor, unlikely to conflict with other foods. A well behaved beer, and not at all pretentious.


I also picked up a package of Trader Joe's Beer Bread mix, that they had strategically close to hand.


Trader Joe's knows their Grumps. ::P: *EDIT* Seriously, there are a lot of Grumps there. Of all ages and cultures, but recognizably Grumps. :lol:


All in all, glad to have found it.


The Auld Grump


The party is more than two thirds through Danger at Dunwater, and Jon is really good at using challenges to fit in with the serpent folk.


Physical Diplomacy checks! ::D:

I just had that one for the first time a couple weeks ago, and yeah, that quickly moved up to the top of my list too. 


Need to make a trip to TJs soon... 


Waffles and Coffee!!


And back to the CPA MCQs...

I'll have to look around here for it then.  Not getting my hopes up but I've found weirder things.

      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
      Lemon Yellow
      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!

      Link to original challenge: 
      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.

      So I decided to do this random dragon challenge thing.
      My rolls.

      Main 20 9039 Pure White
      Secondary 6 9227 Brilliant green
      Miscellaneous 10 9023 Imperial Purple
      And my intent is to do the 3 star challenge, I was planning this before rolling.  Interesting colors, I have the pure white but not the other two.
      The arrival of Deathsleet with his Halloweeny reinforcements, and the missing two paints.

      And here he is ready for the paint.

      I started with giving him a primer of brilliant green cut with 2-3 times as much pure white.

    • By InvisibleThumb
      Stuck my thumb in the box of unpainted bones and pulled out a Kyphryxis.

      must unbag bag and dry fit, trim mold lines and scrub, but first, the random colors...

      15, ah what could that mean?  I'll look later.  Let's roll another.

      seven!  Good.  Nicely spaced numbers.  Will look it up in a minute.  For the third roll...  Well darn gotta wait for the full minute so the time shown is different...  Finally!

      oof!  One!  Critical miss.  Well, it's probably a boring color at the top of the table.  Let's see what this means:
      15: mint green
      7: olive green
      1: fire red 
      huh.  Whadaya know.  Time to go see what I've got for colors... (To be continued)
