Ah, the inevitable "week before the event" nonsense:

  • After going around the Fake Russian to his wife to get a confirmation, then confirming with the restaurant, the Fake Russian had a sudden (and very legitimate) need to bow out. Now I'm waiting on his wife to find out whether to call the restaurant and drop one or two. (Honestly, 14 to 13 doesn't need a call, but 14 to 12 usually means they can slip in a table for 2 somewhere else.)
  • Similarly, choir director texted with, "I forget. Is my husband invited?"
    Very amusing. I wanted to text back. "Nope. Nor is he welcome at the 1-on-1 after-dinner hot tub party," but I felt that might have been mildly inappropriate.
  • Still having issues with the whole, "NobodysHome is paying for dinner. Stop arguing," thing.
    NobodysWife put it really well: You want to have a big get-together with your friends. Your choices are:
    (1) Choose a restaurant everyone can readily afford. Which, when you're dealing with teachers, writers, and teenagers boils down to $15-$20 a plate, which around here is basically fast food or Chinese.
    (2) Cook a giant meal at home. Kind of removing the entire fun of the situation, since you're working 6-8 hours just before the gathering.
    (3) Have the home meal catered. Costs just as much as a restaurant, plus your house gets trashed.
    (4) Have a potluck and have everybody hate you.

    People are just SOOOOO obsessed with money and fairness, when we all know that money isn't fair. All I want is to have a really nice dinner with all my friends and have nobody even think about what it costs. Instead, the whole weeklong debate leading up to dinner is, "Are you SURE you can afford it?"
    If I couldn't afford it, I wouldn't be doing it.
    And I'll shout out Lisamarlene as being a champ in NOT doing this. She listened to my arguments and said, "Good enough for me," and let it go. Thank you, Lisamarlene!


  • Anyway, should be a fun dinner anyway...

    EDIT: And I'll openly admit, Shiro gets that impish look on his face whenever I mention the dinner, so I'm suspicious that I won't be getting hit for the full 100% of the cost. Or else I'm going to get a couple of free trips to Rivoli out of it. Win-win, in my book.

    You must still be young. In my teens I misliked most pop songs, and despised metal. By my late 40s, I was starting to admire just how polished and cleverly-crafted many of the 90s pop songs were, and I find myself seriously enjoying Impus Major's European metal.

    Dressing up like Joakim Broden at 50 was quite the blast, too.

    Don't know if I'd call 43 young. Though I reckon to some it may be. ;)

    I tend to kind of stay the same through out my life, hell until about 4 years ago I've only ever cut my hair one way. Still dress the same as I did as a teen, jeans and either tshirt or button up, converse all stars or work boots.

    I even weigh within 10 pounds of what I did at 15, around 185. I'm like Peter freaking Pan that way.

    I am for the first time ever considering the purchase of minis, for the D&D-like game I am running at home. I have no idea what other companies have to offer, but Paizo's offerings look both impressive and reasonably-priced. I'm thinking paper minis or pawns for NPCs/monsters, and 3D for PCs.

    Any comments or recommendations?

    Reaper has good product. The only downside is that they're unpainted.

    Lucky! I did hard-core Tae Kwon Do (22 hours a week!!) from 20-23 and fought at 155 lbs, but quitting cold and continuing to eat 5000-6000 calories a day is detrimental to your body shape. I ballooned to 185 within 2 months, and have stayed within 15 pounds of that for most of the last 27 years.

    In terms of fashion, I'm wearing much the same stuff (loose cotton pants and T-shirts), but skate pants with skulls 'n' such went out of fashion, so I've switched to Chefwear. Explaining the many references to me and "fish pants".

    I'm a convert to WizKids pre-painted plastic, because even though both Dark Sword and Reaper make some really good-looking minis, the fact that they're unpainted and I'm hopelessly untalented means that I end up with things like my beautiful unpainted mini for my gnome rogue still being in its box while I use the Wizkids Lini iconic mini because it's easy.

    I have dropped the plastic figures dozens of times, and a few have bent or broken, but they're even easier to fix than the metal ones.

    So, as we all know, I have a ridiculous disposable income and I don't spend it on much of anything other than food and Pathfinder (and Disneyland). So I have 5 battle cases (Rise of the Runelords, Wrath of the Righteous, Skull & Shackles, Crown of Fangs, and Shattered Star), and I love having that many minis to choose from. And yeah, they're not the best they could be; when GothBard decides to create a custom mini for herself from a Dark Sword base she creates something truly astounding.

    But for a lazy GM who just wants something that remotely resembles the monster it's supposed to be, WizKids pre-painted plastic is one of the cheaper, easier options.

    Having done both paper minis and pawns, I found that the paper minis similarly suffered from the "too much work" issue (a glass bead and a picture on your computer screen to show what they look like works just as well), and both I and my players significantly prefer minis over pawns, even though the art on the pawns is "better".

    I've had the same haircut since I was thirteen, more or less, I have cut it twice, and in my teenage years I had it shaved into a Mohawk (never did get it to stand up) but it's so thick and curly you hardly noticed.

    I think potlucks in the midwest and south are fundamentally different from potlucks around here. CY put it decently, but there are a lot of things going on in California potlucks:

  • People take them very, very seriously and constantly try to out-do each other on their dishes.
  • People have no issues whatsoever telling you the shortcomings of whatever it is you brought.
  • At least 3 people will tell you why they can't eat what you brought, and why you're a horrible person for not knowing these fundamental things about them.

  • I have rarely been to a potluck in California that was anything short of unpleasant, and most were far worse than that.
    My curry had too much sodium. (Or was too hot. Or wasn't hot enough. Or wasn't authentic. Or was offensive because I wasn't Indian. I made a lot of curries for the dojo, and was usually insulted about them at by at least one person, and a different one every time.) My chicken was roasted when everyone knows chicken should only ever be fried. My seared ahi sashimi was apparently so bad that someone took one taste and threw both platters in the trash.

    To say I mislike potlucks is akin to saying (gran insert jokes here).

    I'd rather starve and stop socializing entirely than attend another potluck.

    Later this year the company is releasing a couple of designs that me and the wife came up with, that's got us excited.

    thats wonderful.

    So glad you guys are making new toys.

    LOL. Trying not to think of the new toys bit. But if you're looking for a toy, I'd go for the school of being as open as possible with the toy manufacturer so it fits your requirements.

    I think I'd wake up as a dwarf. You know, short and tubby?

    Which reminds me, my paws are aching now. I guess I'm not exactly used to repeatedly punching stuff, and my right hind paw is aching from holding combat stance yesterday. Ah well. It's a good ouch, if you get my drift =)

    NH - chicken can be roasted. Fried is a sh *t ton of calories which would make me feel really guilty after. Curries are tricky things. Make a curry that is mild enough for me to eat, and my aunt and dad would complain because it's not spicy enough for them.

    Basically the larger the group, the harder to please everyone. Even cooking at home, if the salt content makes my mom and brother happy, it'll be too bland for me and my Dad.

    And here I was thinking of Mort as a prude...
    So... many... double-entendres...

    *Lumbers over with a new ice-pack for kitty, looks her paw over and gives her a 'Good-night nuzzle'. Continues on to his spot besides her basket, where he spins around himself a couple of times, yawns, and lies down to go to sleep.*

    I think I'm digging myself into a deeper hole, but if you want something that works, shouldn't you tell the product manufacturer what you want to see?

    Also I don't have issues with female nudity, just male. Because too many people in the gym have been going starkers in the changing room. So if you kept trying to avoid looking, nothing would get done.

    *purrs and nuzzles the turtle as well*

    There are shell less turtles as well.

    I shouldn't be that shell prejudiced.

    That sounds awful.

    I'm not a particular fan of potlucks -- why does someone always bring some sort of cold carby 'salad'? -- but I've never had a horror experience like you describe. The worst that happens is inevitably one or two people go home bummed that nobody ate the dish they brought. Or not, often those are the dishes picked up from the supermarket on the way.

    Hey all, what have I missed over the weekend?

    I created a FaWtL Discord named DaWtL (and, though it started out as an unintentional pun, it is now very intentional), and have lost most of my sleeping time to a variety of games and kids.

    You haven't experienced hell until you've been to a good old fashioned Midwestern potluck/barn dance.

    Someone will bring Lutefisk, and then insist that everyone HAS to try it (do not try it).

    And then the dance, my gosh, I have a notoriously terrible sense of smell, but even I can smell the stench of a large group of people that had just eaten lutefisk and are jostling around in a poorly ventilated barn.

    *shudder*

    You see food is a strange thing. I may cook something nice(at least to me) but the saying one man's meat is the other's poison. Like my family in Italy. They kept complaining about no Chinese food that they started going for some sub-standard crap, even though there was all that lovely pizzas and pastas around.

    I don't really understand their decision to this day.

    So if I started stewing braised pork (btw, I can't really do that - I never learnt the recipes that require a lot of prep time, since I'm a lazy hack), you guys may be unused to the taste, and thus unwilling to even give it a try.

    Personally, despite all the stuff I've complained about cheese Rangoons I would try one if offered. Then I'd give my opinion about it.

    I know too strong cheeses like the stinky blue don't go well with me since I've actually tried a small piece of it at a buffet.

    And sorry, no, I don't take Cabonara. Aglio Olio, please, or tomato base spaghetti.
