Okay You People, Chill!

Remember, "he started it" is not a valid reason for misbehaving!

Being a gracious winner or a gracious loser includes keeping your graciousness when the other side is being snarky. In fact, that's probably when it's at its most important. Sooner or later, hopefully, they'll have to deal with the realization of what a jerk they were. Meanwhile, you won't have that problem if you don't succumb to being a jerk in response.

It's a tough lesson to learn, believe me I know. But it's a very important one.

Geekery Before Bed

jamesbarrett said today that he'd actually kinda like to run this weekend, and that he'd send an e-mail tonight on that subject. So that made me alter my priorities re: painting minis, to painting the ones for his game before Saturday night if possible.

Tonight, I finished the first of my new crop of minis, which is finally a metal miniature for Theran's leopard familiar, and I'm pleased with how he came out. Not competition-winning quality, probably, but certainly a very high standard by my own scale. I'll prolly post a photo this weekend, but I'd like to show him off at the game session first. I also made a lot of progress on a fire giant, which will probably eventually end up pounding on us. Am I crazy, is that my problem?

I'm sorta looking at miniature painting as a way of "gaming when I'm not gaming," so to speak. I realzed a while back that I did a lot more thinking about gaming than actually doing it, and I'm thinking that painting figs might be a way to get around that. And unlike computer games, it's something that might have some positive returns: well-painted figures can sell on E-Bay for $10 - $20, sometimes $30 - $50, although I'm sure it would take me a while to get good enough to command top prices.

Meanwhile, I also did some drawing for next week; it's been a busy evening! I'd better get some rest tho, Kung Fu tomorrow night!

Catcha later!
