Randomness XVI: Brains versus Bleach - an Epic Rap Battle in Iambic Pentameter.

Recommended Posts

Decent night of study. Feeling like things are starting to sink in. 

 

Time to walk the girls... *sigh*  Really need to carve out some hobby time. I've got Sunday night game. i've got Thursday night Picard. Date night on Friday. I worry that if I carve out too much more, there won't be enough study time. Maybe Saturday night?

So you're saying that the 298.15 K temperature in the hall overrides anything your heating and cooling plant does and you end up with between 534.67 R and 535.67 R in your domicile?

Kelvin. Evil bugger bringing them into the mix! :P

 

Well, the hall slowly overrides locally set temperatures... Provided the following hasn't happened.. 

- someone got sick of the cigarette smoke smell in the halls, and opened a window, 

- someone got sick of the "too hot" hallway temperatures and opened a hall window, 

- We opened a window in the living room and bedroom, 

- it's negative stupidly cold outside (typically heater won't really keep up once it hits -30C, but usually boiler will keep things at 22C internally), 

- some idiot turned off the boiler to save on building stuff costs, and of course we got a cold snap while it's off. 

 

Could be any combination of the above, so consult your Hobb(s) meter for additional information. 

 

no, I've no idea why I brought an engine run time monitor into this. Call it being silly, and tired!

The Navy taught me how to iron: give a guy your clothes, wait a few days, then give him some money, and get your clothes back nice and crisp. Easy!::P:

My dad, who was in the air force, also knew and used this trick.  Mom thought it was silly, until she found out just how annoying a dress uniform is to prep...  Then suddenly that $12 every few months was totally worth it.

Things that make you feel Auld.

 

Getting a picture from one of your players, showing his kid - looking just like his dad at that age when you ran a game for his group....

 

I have players that I ran games for in their teens, that now have kids of the same age.

 

*EDIT* On the same note - Dain is now officially a teen, not a tween. :bday: (But has no interest in being a GM, if they actually do get married, it is Sam that will be the GM in the family. ::): )

 

The Auld Grump - right up there with realizing that you have been running games longer than the parents of some of your players have been alive.

I live, my dear friends. <3 I hope the last few months have treated you all well, though I know how the holidays can be. School and brain weasels have knocked me out hard.

 

But!

 

It's school! I am going to school! :wub: And while I've definitely still had weaselly days, I'm getting better at wrangling them.

 

I don't mind ironing, but now that I think about it.... I only iron my clothes once - when they're still fabric and I haven't sewn them into clothes yet! :lol:

 

 

My brain is already melting from the sheer amount of zbrush stuff I've been shoving into it. I can't imagine what your studying is like. :unsure: I believe in your brain!!!

What a coincidence- that's exactly when I iron clothes! That and while in process of turning fabric into clothing.

 

Best of luck with schooling and brain weasels!

I think you actually do more studing than I did when I was in college!  I admire your dedication and I hope you go far!

I've probably ironed more clothing than my better half here ::P:.  I usually go through all my clothes in the hotel first day of a business trip.  It's only fair though, I'm the one who insists on wearing linen, particularly in the summer and that wrinkles like colliding continents!

Taking Friday off for a funeral and to try and get my mind off the start of year blues which I get when I think I have some control over what's going to happen during the year.  It's worse this year because my new boss expects details on what is happening and how it's happening and I have always operated on the sausage principle:  don't ask how it's made as long as the final product tastes good.  It really would be even nicer if he would give me some sort of template of what information he wants!

 

My birthday and gaming with my new group this weekend.  Only disappointment there is in have to take down the new dwarven forge layouts to open the gaming table and expose the current map they are playing.  I really love the look of the DF forest pieces.  They are pricy but unbelievably robust and stunningly gorgeous!

It seems my car is alright.

 

During the last check up in November they changed the cooling fluid.

This probably caused some air to get into the system, at a certain point the air bubble is reached and the fluid level sinks.

Since I don't look under  the hood that much I might have noticed the level yesterday while it has been going on for a while already.

The garage refilled it and told me to watch it for a while.

It will probably be all fine.

 

So....I already had calculated some costs, now that this isn't happening, would I be a bad wolf if I decided to use those funds for some extra minis?

I mean, I already expected to spend it...right? Right? RIGHT?

If it were me, I'd hold on to that money for a bit longer, just in case.

Exactly!

I actually do know how to iron, and did learn it in the Navy. My daily wear stuff I could keep up with, but for dress uniforms and/or inspections, it's totally worth it to let the pros handle it.

 

ETA--Well, this is it. The day before I move. I need today to be about 72 hours long in order to get everything to the point where I feel ready to move. Here's hoping that tomorrow goes smoother than I think it will. (I'm probably stressing over nothing.)

 

Also, I'm going to be offline for a couple days, so behave and have a good weekend.

The next 2 days will be fun, our church's school has a basketball/volleyball tournament and I will be helping out. "Brother Kevin" will doubtless be hit up for numerous snacks and Gatorades! On the topic of feeling old We taught the Mom of our Volleyball Coach in High School Sunday School, and she is married now! @Chaoswolfprayers for you and your wife on the move, hope it goes smoothly.

      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. 

      https://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm

      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).

      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!
      (end edit)

      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.
