It will not eat much, Treppa!

~shudders and grins~ Spiders and I have an understanding. If they stay out of my way, then they live. I value them, but I do not want bit by them.

I feel your pain, Sharoth. I'm back at work myself after my previous 24-hour stint. Now I have a 16-hour stint to get through. Plus, I was figuring out my bills, and there really isn't a lot of money left over this next pay period, despite working balls-out. It's frustrating, but I should be caught up with everything by October, hopefully.

I feel your bill pain. I really do. Most (if not all) of my overtime is going towards getting my house worked on.


Speaking of pain, I really hate mouth pain. It's the painiest pain there is...


Ha. Never had kidney stones then I see. Now THERE is pain my friend.

I stepped on a d4 once.


Being doored hurts. A lot.

Awww... is it cute round web builder or a cuddly hairy hunter? Cause web builders are frightened of you. Ok the hunters are too they just tend to be a bit more aggressive about their fear. The web builders will find a corner to build a web in and then catch and eat all those annoying insects. The hunters want tasty insects too but they crawl all around looking for them. When the hunter is afraid he tends to bite. Fortunately a palm sized hunter at any of the Northern climates is almost certainly not poisonous and it can't do any more damage than a pinch would. Heck I surprised one in the shower just last week and got bit on the toe. I promptly removed him from the bathroom so I could shower without drowning him. Good thing too. Cause he found a more appropriate girl friend who I caught him seducing in my basement near the laundry machines. Probably will be a ton of the little guys and girls next spring. I will probably be busy relocating a bunch of them to to front yard where the ants like to battle so they have plenty of food.

Also if you keep a small glass of water under your bed most spiders will leave you alone, they're mostly just trying to stay hydrated when they bite. :-)

They're like the fitness gurus of the insect world.


Hour 11. Thus my Labor Day Sunday labors on

Sorry about the scary spider Treppa, but yeah, they won't bite unless provoked. It's hard not to be unnerved when they move as fast as Spidey Gonzales. My sister's cat used to like to catch and eat those big ones.

However... cyborg Treppa would be cool, but Spider-Treppa would be much much cooler.

I smacked my shin-bone on a gaming table once. Talk about rolling a "1".

I drove a total of 4 hours and didn't get much sleep before having to go to work, but I can safely say that I had more fun in the 12 hours at Dragoncon than I did in the whole week I was in Vegas.

Mmm, mutton.

Neat reading, if short.

A few editorial question:
"One of the eunuchs barged into his chamber-Theophilos."

Wouldn't that sentence be better if it was:

"... chamber - it was Theophilos" or "Theophilos, one of the eunuchs barged into his chamber"

Also, "Yet he took cate of us" needs correction, I think.

Thanks very much for your comments/constructive criticism!

You're definitely right on both counts. :)


Just finished the last of my unfinished projects, and I need ideas for a new painting. Thoughts?


"The Picture of Trumpian Gray"?

What, like Trumpy from Pod People?


I'm not sure what kind of spider is under my bed. I feel bad because I found it by leaning on it as I climbed into bed. It fit into the palm of my hand with its legs folded partly up and was kind of pale granite shaded. It had a radially symmetric build like a fishing spider, but this is an arid place so not sure what it was.

I didn't have glasses on, so I didn't check out the eye or genital arrangement as recommended by spider identification sites. While I was trying to figure out through a narcotic haze if it was real, it limped down the side of the bed and underneath.

There's a little brown hunter on my windowsill and something bright red was in the bathtub earlier. Oh, and a teensy something in one of my dresser drawers.

I did not know this place had so many spiders.

Are you sure they're not drug-induced hallucinations?

I was thinking more this, only orange-er and with teeny hands.

If Trump was an alien, I think Spewey would be a closer fit.

After getting burned several too many times, I won't touch politics with a ten-foot pole. Or even one of any other size.


Walked across the street to the corner store to re-stock on bottom-shelf intoxicants, and was held up in line by a dwarf and a prostitute attempting to haggle with the cashier over the price of lottery tickets. Hashtag Syracuse.

They prefer Underground-dwelling Mining technician and Wench-American respectively , Shiny. Gotta be PC up in the Treefort.


And thus it is....

GOOD MORNING TREEFORTNAM!!!!


Yes my Laboring is done for the nonce. I came home and collapsed, after a couple days of under 4 hours sleep I was pretty worn. 10 hours asleep according to the FitBit. That's a new record (since records began in May)

I might sleep some more, I'm feeling that way. However, a day off isn't something to waste. I have to check my poor neglected vegetables today


I missed my chance to submit to Wayfinder this time, but honestly there was little enough time to get it done. Next time, perhaps.

You seem to enjoy doing very dark (in terms of lighting) work. Maybe a group of adventurers exploring the Dark lands with a single torch as enemies prepare to bush them?

Mayhap I shall keep an eye out for the next time they ask for submittals. I had something in each of two older issues a few years back, but since then had better things to do with my time. Since that is sort of no longer the case.....

Is that how the Zombie Apocalypse starts.

A bunch of Zombies all happen to get bored at the same time.


Now we know what happens to all of the barely-worth-it zombies Necromancers cut loose once they have access to ogres. They wander off, join a Zombie Union and eventually strike.

Meh, I'd rather the kind that pays.

Lol. Wouldn't we all. I'd settle for a living wage with a 40-hour a week schedule with 9-5 hours. But, not this year. Maybe next.


Grrrrr...!!! I forgot to save and lost 30 to 45 minutes of playtime.


^BOO!


I hope your call out went OK, dragon

Any thoughts on a Quetalcouatl? I think you'd do a kickass one

Not a bad idea. I'll put it on the list.

Dinner at Chez Monkéé was a bowl of corn carved off the cob. Spiced with taco seasoning. Olé!

Heal indeed Treppa!
And catch up on sleep Monkey!

I got sucked away (meaning we DID make it to the beach this weekend) into a torrential downpour. :(
(I distinctly remember ordering NO rain on my ONE day at the beach! The Condominium management shall hear of this!) :P

I think there was more seaweed than water, (Honestly, I've seen lees green in my salad!) And the wave was 1 red flag, (the lifeguard said it was barely red, but was fine to swim in, just dont head out for the sandbar) but the waves were fun to body surf. If you like being beaten like a pinata. ;P (Apparently my kids enjoy that kind of thing as much as I do)

Honestly, I think we spent more time driving to and from than we spent in the water. But we DID get in the water! And I don't get to visit with my family but a couple of times a year, so it was good. Great even. :)

Unfortunately, I didn't get to warn my friends before I had to bug out. Sorry all, I will catch up on Pbp's and such soon. Like tomorrow. Night.

I still have to prep a lesson and a script for a class of 11-14 year old theater students for tomorrow first. :P

And with that, wave-beaten Wizard go night.

Night! ;P


Get some sleep wave-beaten wizard! And stop frolicking with those water elementals! ;)

Early call to work. Time to drive some kidlings to school.

Just got a smoke detector. It is in the shape of a gigantic gray moth. Then yesterday one of my cats saw it. True to form, he did all he could to get at it, which ended with him hanging from his claws from the door beneath it then fell down to the floor. So I picked him up and let him batbatbat at it. Since then he has ignored it.

Sorry, little dude. I hade no idea you wanted an all-you-can-eat moth buffet that much...
