  1. Yea, I'm writing down my notes and getting some other things ready for the next time. I had a hell of a schedule the last couple months that kept impacting my prep work, but starting earlier will help. And thanks for playing in my game Chris & Tom!
  2. And on the medical front, blood tests perfectly normal, so today we go for an EKG. A slightly different issue is being checked by eliminating a lot of types of food for a bit. Though it's looking like I've gotten much worse on processing dairy recently.
  3. Yikes. We had a cat that foamed and expelled noxious fluids everytime he was put in a carrier. We really limited his travel times... Shots can cause a reaction, though usually it's just lethargy and a possible low grade fever. (Out of > 1000 kittens i had experience with, two had reactions. One was fairly serious in that I had to give him fluids and cut out of the adoption event early.) And I need to read up on the latest going ons with flea meds. (Best thing about living at 5000' and a dry climate was cat/dog fleas didn't survive. So far, we haven't had any flea issues, but it's just a matter of time that one hitches a ride into the house)
  4. For me, Frack, Feldercarb, [expletive deleted] in writing, and Hurm. My wife will sometimes say "Dear Lord of the Rings" (which I think is from someone on Project Runway)
  5. Nothing like doctor tests that don't show anything abnormal, but you feel like crap. Definite imbalance of the humours.
  6. So, paint a mural at the edge of the solar system showing nothing here.
  7. Saw the film yesterday. I enjoyed it, though parts of the story didn't make as much sense after thinking about it. I didn't see Larson's acting as wooden; She was playing someone who was having her emotions tamped down for the last six years. In my own rankings, it's a solid in the middle of the pack of films for the MCU.
  8. Where we have our house parked, the main house needed to be repiped due to old decaying pipes. (And I got to point that out to the landlord since we were having some work done to make our house legal to park) During the results of inspections etc..., the plumber and inspector were quite fascinated in the water heater in the garage. It dates to sometime in the 80s according to them. It was still OK, but apparently the work nudged it out of whack, so the house people are mentioning very short hot water time. They're trying to get it replaced, but apparently that is being difficult. Doesn't really impact me since we have a tankless for the tiny house, but I seem to be the "responsible" person who can talk to plumbers/etc... while the landlord's son isn't around. (He lives there, but is on an extended trip)
  9. Single point of Body might be a good clarifier. And the text for Breakability between Champions 3e and Champions 6e are nearly identical in function. (I remembered a player writing up a Foci killer slot on his gun. Area Effect, Penetrating back in the mid-80s...) And yea, similar text for 4th & 5th. (1st & 2nd do mention how many defenses breakable foci have, but don't go into the details) Now, did most of the GMs and myself pay much attention to breakable foci? Not really
  10. Looks like one of the beasties from Stranger Things in the lower right, though possibly it's what ST referenced? Looks like this might be a link to the original, plus other like: https://hcgart.com/
  11. Yea, that's odd. I'm going to double check my storage area, but I'm pretty sure I pulled all my data from any floppy disks I had from then. I wonder if it was an announced product, but not much follow thru? It was in the midst of the Fuzion release area.
  12. Should be in "And now, for your daily dose of cute..."
  13. Went to the Multnomah Library sale and picked up 23 CDs for 50 cents each. Some that I didn't have and some replaced some stolen CDs that I never ripped. Though I need to start bringing my wanted list with me. (picked up a couple I already had...)
  14. I clearly remember Superman falling into trap doors on Superfriends. It's a homage!
  15. It's a bit different to work with, but GIMP has been my photoshop for many years. (I was surprised a couple years ago finding out how easy it was to switch between using the two, which was much harder back in the 90s)
  16. I was wearing my Dead Kennedy's shirt and was admonished for it because what if a child saw it. I told them that the child would learn the proper use of the word.
  17. Part of my mother in law is in a glass figure, but the rest of her ashes went overboard on our Alaskan cruise. My mom I scattered near where she grew up since she was happiest there. My grandmother got dumped somewhere in the desert...
  18. Olivia got her stitches out this morning and is much happier. Especially not having to deal with the cone or donut of shame.
  19. That describes my mom in her final couple years. Thankfully there was still some money and she had alright benefits to be able to put her in a home, but it was a struggle.
  20. CathyCat, Olivia, and Ava relaxing on the couch. I'd say the kitten is feeling at home.
  21. I found a behr color: https://www.behr.com/consumer/ColorDetailView/390D-4 (Geez, they make it difficult to save the image. Almost as if they don't want you to take it to a shop for mixing) I agree with Old Man, I think someone messed up at the store.
  22. That would be a very aggressive color.
  23. Latest addition to the household is Olivia. Possibly hit or tossed from a car, or had been in the engine compartment. She was found by the road and taken to a vet clinic who was able to hold her for a few days. We drove down to pick her up. She did have a dislocated hip and some bruising on her chest. Also was blind and her eyes were completely non-responsive to light. However, she does seem to see at least light & dark currently, though I think there's been improvement over the last couple days. Odd thing is, unlike any Siamese I've known, she doesn't get red eye. One of our other cats who is also a Siamese mix gets red eye without any flash involved. I think that may have to do with how much light gets thru her pupil. She she's another vet on Wed to have an x-ray to make sure she can be spayed safely and we'll have another look into her eyes.
