Randomness XVII: The Madness of the Quorum

Recommended Posts

 

 The one and only time I've ever played Riff, it was at a national convention in front of 250 people, lol.

 

And my friend's dog ate my space suit, so I went on stage in a new suit I'd spent the whole day of the show finishing...

Madness takes its toll...

 

 

If you can get your leg up to kick as high as he does I'll be doubly impressed.

At the time, I could. (I think I could have, right up until about eight years ago....)

 

Just six years ago, I could still do Cossack dances.

 

Aging... happens. It's better than the alternative.

I have a feeling that he will show up again as a BAD GUY.

 

You don't put that kind of effort into a one scene NPC.

 

He was offering the PCs drugs. :unsure:

 

Can an Outsider be an addict?

-Is- he addicted? Maybe he just enjoys the flavour.

You may, for example, be allowed to only consume donuts with neither glaze nor sprinkles. 

Oooh I love plain donuts!  Old Fashion, plain please!  Can I be punished as well? 

Donuts of all types (made by the current crop of donut shops) seem less good than they **once were.

 

Have not had a donut in 3-4 months. Not missing them.

 

 

 

**It might be me, it might be diminished quality of ingredients, then vrs. now.

Good that she's back!

She will forgive you, dogs always do.

Give her some treats she's fond of, good luck with keeping her calm!

Cats on the other hand will hold a grudge FOREVER!

Even if you haven't done anything nasty to them.

The Auld Grump - these were terrible, terrible movies. :lol:

That's to do with the name of the service, the RCAF spent most of the 90s known as Air Command and only changed their name back to RCAF in 2011...

I only know this because it confused me as well (I did know that those dates were to do with the name of the service rather than service dates though)

From what I've seen with model kits recently if you want something decent you pay for it, and I haven't seen many 1/48 scale jmodern ets for less than $70AUD either - except for those kits where te reviews basically say to avoid completely.

Odd that other places would claim they're Air Command... We've been RCAF for decades...  Even the posh and zippy fly boys.  Maybe I saw things differently growing up on the bases *shrugs* (although most of my youth was around 408 "Fighting Geese" errr, I mean "Flying Geese". The first name is an unofficial unit name - and the mascot carried a pipe wrench!  I did technically spend several years around Cold Lake fighter squadron, but.... Truthfully, I remember the armoured and artillery guys more, probably because they took us for rides during family days.... Or pretended to try and stuff us down the barrels of said artillery - for the record, my head actually did fit in the barrel of the one at the time. Shoulders didn't. Artillery guy joked they could get lube, and my dad was all "okay, you guys have had your fun, leave him be".) 

 

The original eight were part of the Royal Canadian Air Force.  So weird that places seem to only think of Comox or Cold Lake when it comes to our fighter wings.. But maybe it's because not all know of the original eight, and finding info on such is actually surprisingly hard.  That and about the only thing that will change is the squadron logo...

Serious question: for those of you with spouses/kids that don't share your hobby interests, how do you manage to hobby without anyone feeling ignored (or the chores left undone)? 

 

Huzzah!

After being married for 20+ years (and many of them separated for long stretches of time due to Navy), Awesome Wife and I don't feel the need to be in each other's pocket constantly (not that that is a bad thing if you both enjoy that, just we don't).  We have activities that that we do together, and activities that we do separately.  For instance, she listens to a bunch of audiobooks; if I'm yapping at her, she can't concentrate and gets annoyed.  Or she will watch one of her period British dramas (Pride and Prejudice and the like), which while I enjoy them occasionally, she watches them more often than I care for.  During those time, I hobby, game, watch YouTube and so forth.

 

As far as chores, in our house, we spend more time reminding our kids to get the chores done.  But as far as my stuff, I don't hobby if I have chores to do.  Or I hobby in between stages of chores.  Load the washer, paint, move clothes to dryer, paint, load dishwasher, paint while it runs.

 

In general, we tell each other that we are going to go do something (and offer for them to join), and trust that if they need Us Time that they will tell us so.  Then we readjust.

 

That works for us.  Wouldn't work for some other couples we know (my buddy Alan had to do an overnight work trip for some training and it was the first time in 15 years that he and his wife spent the night apart; at about 15 years into their marriage).  Big thing is to sit down with your spouse/SO and hash things out.  Most of the time I tend to imagine that my wife thinks things are a bigger deal than she actually does.  Like my first RCon.  I had been planning to go as I was finally on shore duty and could take leave and then they announced that it fell on our anniversary weekend,  I told her that I would have to miss it, to which she replied that I should go, we could celebrate the anniversary later as had become our tradition (as I invariably was out to sea most the prior dates).   Hence Cash, Coporea and others dubbing her Awesome Wife.

Mostly Mrs Hamster and I work like this too, though we haven't been together as long as Dilvish and Awesome Wife.

 

On the other hand, we've been in a small NYC apartment together pretty much non-stop since March, so we both appreciate a little "alone" time. As for chores, they get done before hobby stuff.

 

This morning I got my score for the CPA FAR exam. 73%. Needed a 75% to pass. Honestly that was better than I was expecting, but... Broccoli. Now I have to take the elfing thing over again.

 

And I cancelled D&D last night because my brain was goo dribbling out of my head. Working early and late every day this week, and just... If it wasn't for the imminent arrival of Baby Hamster, 2020 would just be the worst.

 

Coffee.... maybe with whiskey...

Ah, so they're going by the top command, not what pretty much everyone calls it, that explains it.

@Kuroneko Molly sends her thanks that you prescribe more treats. She's starting to wag her tail at me, and I know she isn't feeling much if any pain currently because she wants to act like she usually does. We've had a few worrying moments of her doing something that could pop a suture, but since they are the internal dissolving kind, I can't tell if she did (I check her constantly to make sure no blood is coming out of the incision). She's going to have cabin fever real soon, or at least until the numbing injection wears off (possibly).

 

That mini is looking awesome! And the muffins too. Is there a word or phrase in Scottish dialect to express how delicious something looks?

 

@Crowley sucks about the exam score, and that you have to retake it, but 2% isn't far off. You can do it! I'm on your cheer squad. Hope the Mrs. is doing well today.

But the resulting muffins were absolutely delicious, even if they were 40% blueberry ::P:

Nothing wrong with that at all.

I dug this critter from my box of shame and did some work on his wings that originally came from another mini. Nowhere near done, but I'm happy with how he's going so far

What is/was this delightfully Griffin like creature?  Does it originally have a Lynx face or is that a head swap? Where are all its parts from?

The Griffin Pendrake approves.
