It would seem all the chatty people are busy, most likely doing fun things in Denton, Texas.

Wish I were there.

I've been at the workbench with headphones on, slowly working on my MG Wing Gundam Zero EW Ver.Ka, and it's six billion tiny little pieces.  But it's steadily getting there ^_^

Possibly. I wasn’t in Denton for the afternoon. Went up to Carolington (I think) for the Japanese dollar store, general goods, super market, and bookstore. Bit silly, but they have a better Japanese area than Denver, so it becomes a treat.

 

Then stopped for conveyor belt sushi. Made it to 29 plates between the two of us. Had a lot of variety we don’t have at home either. She had a lot of the eel with miso cream cheese, and I was partial to the jalapeño yuzu salmon and ponzu garlic tuna. Sad my “dessert” of watermelon wasn’t up to home’s standards, but then again a Rocky Ford melon is hard to beat.

I've figured out that two hours (give or take) is my limit.

 

But I did get some paint on some crates (which are bo-or-ring) and some on the female nagendra!

 

Building Better Worlds starts slowly and seldom runs smoothly:

 

Spoiler

I wonder what could be in these crates:

They're not done yet.  I'm planning on doing six in grey, four in blue, four in green, and two in red.

 

Aaagh!

That's the facehugger that broke.  You can see a bit of a bulge on the tail from where the pin vise pushed out the side.  But it's been pinned and I put a little extra sealer on it to help stabilize things.  Tiny, tiny, tiny connection points.

 

Even more aagh!

The fleshy bits for four of the eggs and one facehugger were done with a mix of the tanned and fair skin triads.  The other four and facehugger were done with the golden skin triad.

 

 

And the Nagendra.

Horrible join between the torso and tail.  :down:  That was the best fit I could manage.

Still a lot of work to be done.  She's only gotten the base coat on the scales.  The scutes, shield, and blue portion of the armor just need the highlight.  I think she'll go well with the champion.  I should probably get a shot of them together when she's complete.

I think George is starting to realize that he married a strange woman. :lol:

 

Game was fun, except maybe for George, and that is only a maybe, and hopefully he gets into the game.

 

Nice gaming with Claire again, we haven't played together since before Grump and me tied the knot. (Literally, our handfasting was tying ribbons. ::): )

 

Our gypsies escorted Blaize, the Baron's son home, after he messed up.

 

And kept messing up, hitting on my character, alternating between how he would be a good friend to have and what a bad enemy he would be.

 

Mum Cursed him, so his soldier wouldn't stand to attention. ::P:  Protecting my character and humiliating Blaize at the same time.

 

Once we drop him off and get paid, we are getting the heck out of Dodge, before he figures out WHY he was having problems with Mr. Wiggly.

 

The worst thing is that SOMETIMES he is ALMOST a nice guy, then BOOM! back to being a jerk.

I think it's a perfectly normal question to ask what kind of sailor's knot Grump had used. Because of course he would. ::D:

I ran out of energy yesterday(walking is hard!), but here's some pictures of the rest of the day.

 

We ran into denizens of lloth!

Went through some nice remnant forest

Went past some interesting wetlands (pics for @Thoramel)

All this took a lot of me, so naturally we had to refuel at the awesome cafe that was our destination. It's only polite, after all :)

It was a very successful day, even if it was super dull. We also had to pass by the domain of the Burryman but luckily the powers that be constructed a massive bridge to keep us mere mortals safe

We had great time, but I'm absolutely knackered and am spending today doing as little as possible because everything hurts! Stay safe everyone!

The fact that I'm not there (and we have company this weekend) is certainly making me feel less chatty.

 

COFFEE!!
