1) Happy birthday, xydexx
2) Happy belated birthday, invisiblewolf
3) I almost typed "happy bleated birthday" just now.
4) I've spent a lot of money on miniatures by mail over the past week. With the exception of a decent beholder, I now have pretty much all the figs I want from the D&D
collectible miniatures games. It was a lot of money to drop on a hobby that I only get to partake in for a few hours once a month ... but sometimes picking up minis or supplements has to stand in as my "gaming fix" 'cause actually gaming
isn't a realistic possibility.
5) The amount of money I spent is probably about the amount I'd spend shopping for minis at Dragon*Con, actually, so this may also be a case of "buying minis standing in for attending D*C" too.
6) There is no No. 6.
7) I need to stop spending money for a while. The California trip was expensive, and my finances are still rebuilding from that. Although, with the exception of airfare to MFM and a nice berfday prezzie for laurie_robey
, I'm pretty well set for stuff in the immediate future anyway now that the minis are out of the way.
8) Anybody else out there who's into the collectible RPG minis, where do you go to trade/buy/sell figs? I still have a bunch of figs I want to part with, and I'm still trying to get
a beholder or two, so I'm looking to connect with somebody who's also in the market!
