Randomness XVII: The Madness of the Quorum


Recommended Posts

@Thoramel - I'm not a beer drinker usually, but your picture and description have me wanting to try that. 

 

 

Especially after dealing with 24V motor guy today.  He has me pounding my head against my desk - he gets that the 110 and 24 mean they're different, but he can't comprehend the differences between Alternating Current and Direct Current, nor just how much of a difference in voltage potential there is between 110 and 24.  He keeps thinking all we have to do is change the connector. 

I have a feeling if I sent him a cable with a USB plug on one end, and a standard house plug on the other, he'd try to power his computer with it.

Announcing the arrival of Baby Hamster!

I said goodbye to Lucy this afternoon. It was time. She went peacefully.   She was a good girl.

The lovely piece I commissioned from @kristof65's wife arrived safely!            EDIT: This picture doesn't show it, but some of the glass pieces are iridescent.

So, every time I get frustrated dealing with the idiocy at my job, you post something like this and I get to go "well, it could be worse".  

 

So thank you.

the "laughing" emoji is at your problem customer.  Because I've learned that laughing at idiots is more acceptable than killing them, no matter how better off the gene pool would be.

Youngest has a cold, she needs to get tested.

The waiting game begins again.

Fingers crossed for good results!

Grump left me a mystery bottle.

 

Brown glass, heavy, with a ceramic plug held in place by a metal clamp thingy.

 

Covered in dust, with a handwitten paper label that says Ginger Beer.

 

Do I dare taste it?

 

It looks like a holdover from moonshining days.

Ow, ow, ow!

 

I can taste it with my sinuses without putting my toungue in it.

 

Chug chug chug chug!

 

Nah... probably need to savor that.

 

Have my grandmother's game table set up in the living room. Bought in the 70's, orange fabric chairs with some woven wicker work. The solid black marble top made it safely in one piece. The stained glass lamp of fruit is now hanging above as well. May it all last another 40 years!

Huzzah!

That is absolutely gorgeous! :wub:

 

If I didn't live on another continent I would certainly be ordering something from @kristof65's wife :winkthumbs:

We're really glad you like it.  

Her idea for the glass piece for the eye is my favorite part.

She says "Thank you!"

She also wanted me to point out that she's sold & shipped pieces to Hawaii, Australia, Canada, and the UK. As long as they're small, shipping isn't too exorbitant.   

I'm not supposed to point out that there are a lot of great glass artists in the UK if you don't want to pay shipping.

I'm still alive, though potentially employed beyond my capacity. First day back in the office.

 

More importantly the apocalypse is coming:

 

I RAN OUT OF DULLCOTE.

 

Been to 7 hobby stores. It's time to make some poor coating decisions.

 

on a side note, 400+ minis in 2020.

I could do the bones I scroll by video with things I painted this year.

Trap or not, it's a mysterious gift... Yes, drink it. But slowly savour it, if possible. 

 

Beware any nearby red LEDs that suspiciously show up, but Grump doesn't seem to be that kind of guy, more a case of "I have some liquor, drink!"
