October 15: Have you any phobias?

 

(This question inspired by various reactions to a certain spider being unlocked right now.)

I don't like bugs, spiders, etc, but not to the point of really freaking out. Not a fan of needles, but I deal with bloodwork and such pretty well. Not a fan of being alone at home in the dark, but I make it by. I'm not really sure what to define as an actual phobia.

October 16: What hobby related thing(s) are you working on (pics please)?

Trying to get a little bit done on painting, but I sadly don't have any photos at the moment.

October 17: How long is you hair?

I've been rocking a mullet since my childhood in the 80s. At the moment, the party in the back gets to about the middle of my lower back.

October 18: Have you ever experienced VR (virtual reality) or AR (augmented reality)?

October 19-20: Try something new then tell us about it, or better yet show us.

I did a bit of VR in a training class at work a few months back. I was supposed to be watching some video scenes, but I was busy looking around at the overall 360 world, and noticing the areas where the seams didn't quite meet up.

I had to give up on the notion of finding some new place to go Nosh on food. Didn’t pan out for yesterday. Just not hungry enough for that today.

That leaves trying something new art wise. I decided on drawing backwards. Usually I start at the middle, with whatever will be the center of interest, Using very fine tip pens. Then I work outward. Bold outlines get added. Background gets filled in ‘round the edges.  But this time, like Dr Doolittle said, “ strike that! reverse that..! “

 

I am starting with the big thick, bold outlines first, adding the background next, using the biggest pens...

...wish me luck.

...On the 20th. This is another Inktober drawing so however it finishes up will be in the Inktober thread.

Something new. I tried my  hand at pickling cabbage.

October 21: Do you like foods containing pumpkin (real pumpkin, not just pumpkin spice) and if so, what is your favorite?

Probably pumpkin muffins.  Pumpkin pie is either okay, or "what on earth were they thinking??!?" to me, although I've had some slices that were enjoyable, but I'm a lot more inclined to have apple pie, or lemon meringue!

I like pumpkin quite a bit. Pumpkin soup is pretty good. Pumpkin bread. Pumpkin cake. My favorite is pumpkin pie or baked pumpkin cheesecake.

I can't think of anything involving pumpkin other than pie or maybe a soup, so I guess I like them?  Why don't we have a shrug emoticon?

Not at all. Very much not a fan of pumpkin.

Pumpkin pie, especially warm with ice cream or whipped cream, is SPLENDID. I like pumpkin bread as well, AND Cap'n John recently picked up some little pumpkin iced cup cakes which were OUTSTANDING.
Pumpkin spiced stuff is pushing the flavor for me, but then different stroke & all that. Over do it & the Pumpkin Heads will get you:

I tried using glow in the dark paint for the first time this weekend. I used it on a little obelisk from Hammerlot Games below to see if it actually worked. Then I tried it on a bigger scenery piece that's posted over in the show off thread. Here's the first attempt.

Pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin soup... I can't decide. It's all so good.

I don't remember ever trying real pumpkin in my whole life, it's just not part of the cuisine I grew up with. Even in-store pumpkin desserts are quite uncommon.

 

Considering that I like butternut and spaghetti squash (and recently bought a buttercup and acorn squash), I may actually like pumpkin.

I like pumpkin pie.

I have enjoyed a variety of squash dishes which would definitely work with pumpkin, but I am not 100% certain that counts.

 

I don't think I can claim pumpkin is a favorite food for me, but it's definitely OK.

No. The only thing I'll eat are pumpkin bars, which my mom makes. Turns the squishy pumpkin consistency into a cake, with raisins, lots of cinnamon and topped with a cream cheese frosting (also the only way I eat cream cheese). I can only eat a bit at a time though.

Yes.  I usually make pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.  I also have a recipe for a killer pumpkin pecan cake.  I like pumpkin in chili, too.  I've done pumpkin soup, but wasn't a fan of it plain. (A friend makes an excellent butternut soup, though)   I did pumpkin salt caramel once, thought it was good but nobody else did.  That was before salt caramel became a thing.   

 

I strongly dislike pumpkin spice seasoning and anything that uses it.
