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.

It's even worse with Model Railroad "stuff".

High end model steam locomotives require careful packing and storage and the suitcases I use take up a considerable amount of space.  Same with rolling stock.

My "roundhouse in the closet" takes up most of a bedroom closet.

 Fortunately(?) I've never had the cash to acquire either that much space or the stuff to fill it...

 

(My whole miniatures collection only takes up about four standard kitchen cabinets.)

Get back to me when you've been collecting for more than 5 decades.

Just an occasional purchase adds up when you have multiple decades of items collected for "retirement".

I feel like I can talk about this here and people will understand, but spoiler'd because it's kinda dark. Beware.

Y'all ever go on a shopping spree that just won't end?

 


 

It all started with a little therapy shopping a couple weeks ago, had been running myself ragged taking care of my mom and I swung by eBay and I just happened to see a copy of that old Arabian Adventures box set I wanted but never would pull the triggeer on, and I said what the heck. And then I snagged a couple more things, and then I found some Oriental Adventures stuff that was in the same category for me, wanted but never would go all the way, and all the sudden I'd had a nice little weekend at the market.

 

But then next thing I know I've started filling in my 2nd Edition Complete Handbook collection, and the DMGR series, and I'm on Ebay every day cruising around for deals, and next thing I know I've bought that last 3.5 Eberron module I needed and for some reason the 4th Edition Eberron campaign books because what the heck I got a deal, but HOLY broccoli YOU GUYS I don't even play 4th Edition so wtf. And then all the sudden a couple weeks pass and my mom's doing a lot better, things have mostly calmed down and we're having a nice small birthday get-together, and I'm sitting around poking at the phone and spot that old Anauroch supplement and I've got this weird soft spot for that area and I make an offer, and they take it, but then the seller messages me like Satan himself saying, "heh heh heh, see anything else you like? Let's make a deal," seriously just imagine every "ha ha ha enablement!" joke that's ever been made around here but then pretend it's Viggo Mortensen in The Prophecy saying it, and next thing I know I'm sitting with a list of stuff and invoices are sent and bam.

 

And, uh. I'll probably never get to use this stuff in a game lol. But the madness is over now! I think. I hope. Oh, please, let it be at an end.

 

tl;dr, Money awesomely but foolishly spent, please send help.

 

 

Sounds like you need some “you” time. I suppose buying minis is better for your health than bing eating.

 

I’m glad your mom is doing better. :hugs:

Hmm, this replacement computer idea is starting to snowball almost as fast as my gunpla wishlist... 

 

On the flipside though, if I can pull it off, it's going to be an insanely epic rig...

Look, I don't want to get into a lot of details here or anything but you can basically do both these things at once, turns out. :unsure:

It's time to stop both when you buy a bones flesh golem and wonder when they cast you in plastic.

Just replaced an 11 year old Dell (spec’d well, and was still doing 90% of what I wanted) with a home built spec’d out nicely (didn’t go overboard comparing current prices). Holy hell is it nice. That SSD main drive is so sweet to have. Damn near instant reboots and wake ups. The older one was left on all the time because it was a five minute cycle.
