Today I'm celebrating my 15th (full) day of being married. My wedding was just over 2 weeks ago. That's a large part of why I've been so quiet lately - last minute preparations, followed by time spent

We said goodbye to Ella Cat  today.  She had been with us an amazing 20 years.    She and her siblings were found by a Nun  just after they were born under a parked car.  The household

Oh, I almost forgot to share my good news: my work got a grant so they can pay me for 100% of my pay while they’re closed! I don’t have to deal with unemployment!

Most recipes I've seen call for using some AP or Bread flour in with the whole wheat to help develop gluten better.  Otherwise you can also knead much longer to get things to pull together right.


Yes, I typically use 25% bread or AP flour for WW bread.  You can also buy extra gluten, but I used to use that in the bread machine and don’t know how it would go in hand kneading.

To those of you thinking about hair cutting, is not now the time to simply run with the "crazed hermit" look? 

After all, we're supposed to be "social distancing" and on one's trip out, would one not avoid someone who bears the appearance of a slightly unhinged recluse?

I'm strongly considering that when I am forced to venture forth for resupply I ought to take along a placard proclaiming the "End Is Nigh,  The Judgement of The Great Pumpkin Is Upon Us!" and loudly utter the flagellant's chant from Monty Pyton and the Holy Grail, just to ensure that no one will think venturing within 7-12 feet of me is a good idea. 


I was thinking a Grim Reaper outfit myself...

whew. teensy tiny crisis averted. Zelda is back on! oh happy day! cleaning can wait...



So, Zelda, A link to the Past is an ancient SNES game I played as a teen (showing my age... came out in '92) Anyway, a randomizer was developed for this that shuffles all the items randomly throughout the game.  So finding the swords can be... interesting.  But, since it's been out for awhile, they made it harder and started shuffling things like the enemies, entrances to rooms and dungeons, as well and the keys and items. Current races this week are shuffling items, keys and entrances. It makes it fun to see what the runners will find.  It's a speedgaming thing.

If they close the grocery stores, then I bike up to campus and sneak into the lab again. A former lab member left his crabbing net in there. Then we go to the beach and catch the crunchy lil suckers for food.

That's too small an ambition..


I always wanted to be the subject of worship of a cult.


I don't know what I'll represent, but I'm pretty sure gaming dice and bags of Doritos are sacred, and FLGS are places of worship. I thought about asking for virgins. But remembering the stereotypical jokes about gamers, geeks and virginity, I decided to give it a pass.

Virgins are overrated. You want folks who know things :lol:

Well the hair cutting went well yesterday. Lady C did a fine job, the guards on the clippers kept any disasters from occurring, although her sound effects [OOH, uh oh, etc] were a bit unnerving. While out yesterday, we did do a drive through for Culver's and got some ice cream, ate it in the truck and enjoyed the breeze.

Keep up the pet pics folks, I think we all enjoy them.

I see your lady has mastered the fine art of Elfing with Husband. Did she say “oopsie!” at any point?

I'm starting to wonder...


I lost 4 pounds last week doing nothing but eating and painting and aggressively avoiding any symptoms despite constant exposure. I just backed into these pants and they're already loose.


The IRS has now officially closed all offices and gone telework only. My living arrangement doesn't allow me to maintain the security of TP information so instead I'm plain old home from work. What will I look like when this is all over?


Partner (and my brother tbh) have already said I should do bodybuilding and get all big and buff. I believe they have different motives for their suggestions ::P:

Muscles are sexy. Unless they're the roided out monstrosities. Generic muscle is good. But uhh... too many gains too fast also gives stretch marks. I have stretch marks on my rump from going from a flat-bum to a normal-curved-bum. Hakuna-masquata - it means nice booty. Do the squats.

Already got a plan for that in the D&D world. When the red dragon gets to town and demands tasty maidens, the local bakery-brothel will offer their kind services to gently deflower the maidens so that they become ineligible for sacrifice to the dragon. What? That specific locale is clean, tidy, and compassionate :poke:

near disaster today, a valuable item may be damaged beyond salvage. 

Apparently, the hot water hose under my bathroom sink was only barely tightened down, and when I disturbed it while grabbing something, it sprang a leak.  A leak I didn't discover for about 10 minutes, when water started pouring out onto the floor.  Got everything out, got the leak stopped, got the water dried up. 

The valuable item:


A roll of toilet paper. 

Normally we have anywhere from 3-5 rolls under there, but it hadn't been restocked from our central supply recently, so there was only one roll, for which we're very grateful. 

Every roll counts.

      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
      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!

      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.
