October 25: What's your favorite dragon mini?

 

October 26-27: Do you take naps?

 

Oct 25, which one did I buy most recently?  I don't know.  I like dragon sculpts, but I'm not that into them that I remember the names.  I haven't painted one in forever. 

 

Oct 26-27, yes, as health dictates.  Some days are better than others. I'm ready for a nap right now.

25: I'm not sure I have a favorite. I just love dragons. I take after my mom in that respect.

 

26-27: Yes.

While I don't dislike dragons, most of mine have been purchased with some game function in mind.  I think I in general prefer to paint human(ish) minis to dragons.

 

Not unless I'm sick, and I don't get sick.  I find it makes it hard to fall asleep when I do go to bed.

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

 

Only pumpkin bread. (Bread is also the only way I like zucchini.)

October 22: Is there anything (food, toy, or other product) from your childhood that you would like to have again, but is no longer available?

 

Relatively inexpensive 1:700 WWII ship models. The kits are still around, but they're much more expensive and they're much harder to find locally. Also, Brach's Marshmallow Candy Eggs, which don't seem to be available in any stores around here (though you can get them online ... for $0.30 ea.)

October 23: Do you paint busts? Show us if you have.

 

I buy busts. I have put paint on busts. I have stripped the paint back off because things were not going well. I have not given up.

October 24: Have you ever taken part in a trial?

 

A couple of minor fender-benders where I had to show up and say, "Yup, entirely my fault. My insurance has already settled."

 

And one time I made it to voir dire on the prospective jury and was bounced by the prosecution on a peremptory challenge. Probably a mistake on their part, though they would have had to actually prove the crime.

In the Netherlands you stand trial before professionals not before a jury of citizens.

So no.

 

In the US, we prefer to have some oversight over the government in the matter of criminal justice.

No idea. I buy them, but they never seem to be the next thing on the painting table. I haven't given up on them, either.

Yes, but only occasionally. I go to and get home from work before my wife does, so sometimes I take a nap in between when I get home and when she gets home.

The clockwork dragon, I have it, but I am hesitate to start it. Not only do I have a lot of other minis that need painted, the mini intimidates me a little.

 

Do I take naps......... Why yes, yes I do.

Of the dragon minis I have I probably like Argent the best. I realize that there was a lot of controversy over Argent during Bones 4, but I still really like the model. Of the dragons I don’t have, I really like and want a Mal' Drakar (...someday ...someday).  
 

I occasionally will take a nap after religious services on Sundays if my wife and kids are also taking naps, but during the week I’m usually too busy to be able to take a nap.

Generally no, not willingly. If I nap during the day, I find it incredibly hard to sleep through the night. Given the variety of medications I've tried throughout the past few years, I've found myself napping more during the day due to drowsiness while adjusting to the meds, but once adjusted it disappears.

 

Still, there's something about 5pm that screams "Just close your eyes for a few seconds..."

Favorite Dragon miniature - Probably Ma'al Drakar. Narthrax is a close second, TBH.

 

Naps - not as often as I probably should, but it does happen on occasion.

I don't have a favourite, though I like most of them,

I rarely take naps.

 

But I do get the urge to take naps during inappropriate times, like board meetings, while at the movies, while driving at certain times of day.

 

Knowing the time of day when you need to drink coffee usually helps.
