It still feels weird to be pulling a mask (bandana) over my face when I pull into a convenience store.

So long as you resist the urge to back into the parking space as well, you ought to be fine...

But yeah, a masked customer base probably goes a long way towards explaining why the older guy at the convenience store on the corner seems to match my own paranoia. Luckily he knows who I am, the Inquisiting Hat tends to stand out a bit. I'm still kicking myself for not getting a plague doctor mask in January though. 

 

As to the mystery of why my sense of time has gotten thrown for a loop, I did finally shave off my crazed hermit beard on Saturday, although why that would mutilate my internal clock, I haven't the faintest idea. But seeing as how a Skyrim mod and wearing an onion on my belt had rain summoning side effects, I am not really all that surprised that other actions may have odd consequences as well, it's that kind of year isn't it...now if only I could unlock the secret to summoning a rain of fish...

Ordered lunch at the wrong shop, so had to drive 12 miles one way to get it. Wound up an hour later than planned.

 

Starting to question what little sanity I have left.

Today marks day 62 of lockdown.

Natives are getting restless.

WE are going out for dinner, Taco Tuesday so we're going to either Taco Bell or Dell Taco.

Since we are all basically "retired" right now, with the exception of a few fortunate individuals, here's a little mental acuity test:

 

Retiree  Mental Fitness Evaluation 

  This test is to  ascertain your mental state now. If you get one right you are doing  ok, if you get none right you better go for counseling. (I'll meet you  there.)
 There are 4 test  questions.  Don't miss one.
                                                   
                                                            Giraffe  Test    
1.  How  do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?  Stop and think about it and decide on your answer before you  scroll down.
-
-
-
The  correct answer: Open the refrigerator,  put in the giraffe, and close the door. This question tests whether you  tend to do simple things in an overly complicated  way.
 
Elephant  Test
2.    How  do you put an elephant into a refrigerator? 
-
-
-
Did you say, Open the  refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the  refrigerator?  Wrong Answer.
-
-
Correct Answer: Open the  refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the  door.  This tests your ability to think through the repercussions  of your previous actions.
 
 
 Lion  King Test

 3.    The Lion King  is hosting an Animal Conference.  All the animals attend ... except  one. Which animal does not attend? 
-
-
-
 Correct  Answer: The  Elephant.  The elephant is in the refrigerator.  You just put  him in there.  This tests your memory.
 

Okay, even if you  did not answer the first three questions correctly, you still have one  more chance to show your true abilities.

 
 
 
Crocodile  Test

 4. There is a river  you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat.  How do you manage  it?
-
-
-
Correct  Answer: You jump into the river  and swim across.  Haven't you
been lis-ten-ing?  All the  crocodiles are attending the Animal Conference.  This tests whether  you learn quickly from your mistakes.
 

According to Anderson Consulting  Worldwide, around 90% of the Retirees they tested got all  questions wrong, but many preschoolers got several correct  answers.  Anderson Consulting says this conclusively proves the  theory that most Retirees do not have the brains of a  four-year-old.
 
Send this out to  frustrate all of your smart friends..
 

PS: Just the fact that I sent  it to you should make you feel good

Our local banks are closed except for drive up teller stations.

What's disturbing is the tellers are behind glass and they are wearing masks.

The important thing is provided a couple of minutes of mental stimulation and amusement.

Addendum:

I've seen this before and I still got the second one wrong.

We are having an outing on Thursday!

Not just a local putt to the Post Office but an honest to goodness trip out of the valley.

Knott's Berry Farm just announced they will have Boysenberry Plants available for Curbside Pickup of pre-orders starting Thursday.

I ordered three plants.

With my poor plant care skills, hopefully at least one will survive more than over the summer.

Well, I have yet another body part not working again. I'm getting better at mentally handling it though! Just bored. :)

 

Buuuut. I am the main cook. My husband can cook but he doesn't plan ahead.

 

So today's dinner ended up being a few bites of a tuna sandwich, a handful of cocktail shrimp, 4 pieces of snack size candy, and a piece of dried mango.

 

This is not going to work. :lol:

My parents have been trying to kill their boysenberries for the past 7 years, including digging them out, refusing to water them through several years of Los Angeles drought, and letting the dogs go at them. The little spiny monsters haven't died yet. I think you'll be fine.

      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.

      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)
