The clouds have finally returned! Last few days have been overcast, and chill enough for me to once again break out the space heater. 

 

Take more of them! I need that sweet, sweet vitamin D!

Currently holed up in Castle Polychromatic for the next little bit. Brain swab happens in the morning, if they can catch it.

Scotland looks lovely, seriously. I don't do bright and sunny all the time, so I could handle the overcast skies.

 

And that toffee apple looks like some gie braw scran (yep, still practicing the Scottish... and the cats have totally been boaking all over the place the past few days).

got my Ghoulie bag today. The starburst knocked out a filling in my tooth. I am both happy, and not amused

 

I am both happy and sad for you. :winkthumbs::down:

it's snowing pretty heavily here. I am, in a word, not at all happy. 

 

Supposedly heading our way and we already have a couple inches on the ground. Go a little ways north and it's bare but down here in the hills it's been coming down lightly pretty often since Friday.

Oh, so you're not a (comment on which political party redacted)? <_<

 

Yesterday took my 81 year old mother in law to the hospital in the city. 3 hour drive back and forth, 6 hours in emergency with her. Got home a little before midnight and then was up until around 3 calming the wife down. Today she went there herself and I stayed home to babysit our daughter. MIL is doing ok but needs a colonoscopy to figure out what exactly the problem is. Now we're in the all too often routine of wait, wait, wait until they finally get around to doing something. Hoping I'll get some sleep tonight. No fun getting old and my wife and her mom don't have the decades of experience with this sort of things like my side of the family does so it scared them pretty good. Signs point towards it being nothing too serious but need more tests. MIL had a bout of this a month ago and then hid that it was happening again because she didn't want to bother us so got even worse pain. I told her it was a cruel lesson for her, if you think there's something wrong talk to me and we'll try to get it figured out before you are in crippling pain and spending days in the hospital. Admittedly that kind of stupid stuborness is something I can see myself pulling off too so I am sympathetic to her. No fun getting old but she has been amazingly healthy all her life. This is the most serious thing she's ever dealt with in 81 years and it looks very similar to something my mom (who's a bit younger) dealt with 20 years ago.

I have 8? ships from that game.

I know I have too many BFG ships already, but MAN I want some of those ships

 


I have 20 ships.

 

I may have 20 ships of a couple of factions.

 

I should do an inventory. I have no clue if I got any duplicates with this auction. Then again, not sure that I care if I have duplicates.

 

I have two big resin Gunships. The package called them that. They were about cruiser size/grade ships(?) And then I have six-from-a-blister Escort grade ships which are pewter. The big ones I grabbed because I thought they looked -kool- and they were slashed to 50% off. The blister of six got bought because I really was a Dystopian Wars collector. My factions were Japan, Russia, and Antarctica. Antarctica has some really cool looking ships, but also, some really idiotic looking flyers. The six Escorts were purchased to be proxies for some of the flyers.

For a long time I wanted a quality grinder (like the expensive but well rated Baratza burr grinders). But my sense of taste and smell is so poor that I wouldn't benefit from it (though far from my favourite, I can hold down day old reheated Folgers).

 

For my moka pot :wub:, ground coffee in a can is good enough for me. Doesn't need to be the high end brands, but I don't go for the cheapest ones either. So Maxwell House and Folgers, by default are out!

The Baratza grinders are nice, just expensive and noisy.  I get more enjoyment from my Hario Skerton Pro or Hario Mini, although usually my arm or shoulder has something to say after I've made two mugs of coffee :P

 

Moka Pot is something I've contemplated, they seem like a nice brewing method.

Better yet, leave the beans in their normal place and move the grinder to the garage or some other suitable hidden location.  Put the instant coffee right where the grinder normally resides.

And mix the sugar so it's half salt half sugar....

That would look gorgeous with a 590nm or 720nm filter (infrared photography). Still looks gorgeous, but 720nm makes it ethereal too!
