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.

Timeline Trivia for Tuesday, February 23rd:

  • 532 – Byzantine emperor Justinian I ordered the building of a new Orthodox Christian basilica in Constantinople – the Hagia Sophia.

  • 1927 – German theoretical physicist Werner Heisenberg wrote a letter to fellow physicist Wolfgang Pauli, in which he described his uncertainty principle for the first time.

  • 1954 – The first mass inoculation of children against polio with the Salk vaccine began in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. Jonas Salk chose not to patent the vaccine or seek profit from it in order to maximize its distribution; by 1959, 90 countries would be using his vaccine.

*Tromp, tromp, tromp* Up the stairs...

 

That's funny, there are two boxes right in front of the door, as a FedEx truck below scoots away.... The smaller box is just a bit bigger than a one liter bottle of resin, while the other is considerably larger....

 

I wonder what they could be.... ::P:

 

Huh, that's funny, I had two boxes in my hands just a few seconds ago, now both the boxes and my wife have mysteriously vanished....

 

The Auld Grump

And then we started having power flickers, so I didn't get to try it out. ::(:

At least that's his rationale.... :devil:

 

For what it is worth, taking the tongue is one of the precautions the Dwarf Underworld traditionally utilizes....

 

The Auld Grump

 

He' the kind of EVIL that tries to make it seem normal.

 

Kingpin, not Green Goblin, Lex Luthor, not the Joker.

 

He is EVIL!

I use a SPECIAL way to paint eyes, using honey.

 

Honey, can you paint the eyes for me?

Dear Hamsterling,

 

Your pushing the bottle away, then crying because your hungry is giving me a headache.

 

Cooooofffffeeeeee...


Get used to the “I’m hungry but not for that!”. It’ll only last for the next 17.5 years. 
 

Guessing on Hamsterling’s age. Can’t keep track of my own spawns’ age. 


And as hesitant as I am to push anything, as I don’t want to be THAT person...  but it might be time for a little applesauce. Eternally grateful to my evil stepmother pushing that on us, who were dutifully following the pediatrician’s commandments.

Man. Every time I try to talk to the peeps on our AL Discord about doing something a little different, get outside the box a little, it is met with... deafening silence. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. If I posted about starting a game like I did today literally anywhere else I'd be inundated with responses.

It's really hard to dredge up any excite about new systems/settings/any combination thereof when suggestions are met with dead air. :/

 

 

Sounding a lot like my group.  I send out messages and get no response, can't generate any enthusiasm or chatter about the game. Even had one player rage quit because I asked folks to RSVP if they still wanted to play.   Despite that, they show up for the game.  Doing it online has actually improved attendance and people being on time.

This bit sounds a little like Mr. Thorne and I trying to get people to try The Dark Eye.

Or, really, anything that isn't PF or 5e.

Long time Deadlands forever Marshal here. Try on my boots sometime. <_<

 

And since we're talking about Deadlands, let me show you a Huckster:

Babies usually tell you when they’re interested in starting solid foods. If they’re staring at you and your food while you eat, smacking their lips a little, it’s probably time to start giving them tastes. I had one baby that was so interested in my food that she nearly dived out of my arms trying to get the spoon. Why yes, I was eating theatrically slow in front of her, it was hilarious :lol: :devil:

Yeah, we're not there yet. He's just a little uncoordinated in his motor skills at this point.

Procedure went well, kidney stone has been obliterated, I’m home and only in moderate pain, except when I pee, which feels like lava. 

Woohoo!

He's 4 months at this point. As far as "I'm hungry, but not for that" I'm planning on going with my mum's strategy of "you have to eat a little of it, and then you can go make yourself a PB&J"

Maybe you put too much milk in his coffee?

Oh, yeah, that could definitely be it.

Yeah, that’s totally normal when they start learning to move their bodies. It’s pretty fun watching babies learn how to human. :wub:

Oh.. yah. Deadlands. I want to try that.

Mention it? *crickets* . . no. Not *crickets*, actually. More like *dead crickets*

 

*sigh*

Also .. AGE, Cypher, Numenera, The Strange, Shadowrun, World of Darkness ... I've got (literally) shelves full of books for systems or settings I wanna play. Group? What group?

Spent 3 hours painting a Wizkid demon.  It was nearly done and I thought I would just finish up a few details.  

but it has just such lovely large amounts of skin to play with. 

It was a lovely day, 

 

I guess I have tomorrow to just finish up a few more details.
