    Ill check out the swap meet @Barb Bliss

    @Thomas Browne I was checking out to see if I can make the Chechen work but unfortunately the price is too high for me to get an AC at that price (no offense @Konas , honest) .  The shipping also is very high to send to me for some reason (not sure why that is...but shipping is shipping).  I love the mythic woods but for the AC I may have to go more of a fire stain which is still very nice.  Plus I want lights :D 

    Huh. Feel free to send me a screenshot of what the shipping looks like for that purchase. I'll see if Cameron needs to tweak something or if I messed up a weight issue.

    What I want to know @Zoe is how long is your bed?  That looks like 3-4' of length taken up by dogs.  You must have to sleep hugging your knees.


    Yes. That or one dog between my legs, one dog between the fiance's legs. Sometimes they'll stack each other at least, right down the middle between us. Sometimes Asher will just splay across my throat - that's my fav, he's done that since I first got him. Gunner also prefers to be under the covers which adds some extra challenges.

    In this case, I was just sitting on the bed on my laptop before going to sleep.

    Yes, routers are scary beasts. Most power tools should scare the crap outta you. That's a good mindset to have in any shop. For me, its the bandsaw. We have had 4 injuries in the total life of DMG, 3 were on the bandsaw. Luckily, nothing too serious so far.

    Nice forstner bit work on the mini trays. Those can be hard to line up well. 

    I've always felt more comfortable with a table saw than a sewing machine. Definitely uh.. not logical, considering which one can do way more damage, hahaha.

  4. I've played Imperial Settlers! It's pretty fun!! I like it a lot and it's definitely been one we go to frequently, although not one of our top favs. It's been probably a year or so since I've played it now, just because we've been getting so many NEW games, but it's hella fun.

    Biggest drawback for me is that it's up to 4 players. I say this because while strategy-driven and still requiring thought, it's not as intense or heavy as a game like, say, Scythe! So it's a perfect board game night game for those of us who are tired of playing Evolution or Werewolf for the 50th time, you know? Except that there is usually more than 4 of us splitting off from the other group, because our board game nights are usually 10 or more people. Hahaha, so it's drawback is that it's a great board game for game nights, but you're usually gonna have more than 4 people wanting in on it. :)

    I would love to see an expansion for it (maybe there is one, or one in the works, idk) to introduce more faction options. I really only enjoyed two in particular, so if I got one that wasn't one of those, I was kinda bummed. The other ones had strategies that just didn't jive with my playstyle. (In this way, you can see why I like it so much, since I love Scythe! I love differing strategies, asymmetric play, etc.)

  5. There was ice on the inside of our bedroom window when we got to bed last night. I had had the pillows all arranged up against it. When I went to remove them, the pillows themselves were frigid cold. The fiance moved the blinds to check the window for draftiness and lo and behold, covered in ice! I think if the pillows hadn't been there, the heating of the house would have circulated to it better. He is staying home today with the dogs since U of M is closed again.

  6. Whoo boy, we have all kinds of weather advisories depending on where exactly you're at in Michigan. Schools closed yesterday evening, didn't even wait to see how things went this morning! Some of this week is going to be so cold you risk frostbite if you're out for more than 15 minutes.

    Probably gonna wanna grab some chews from the pet store for my dogs.

    @Zoe Here I know @Barb Bliss speak I can help you...

    say Meat chicken really fast 4-5 times.  Make sure you do it in front of @Konas.  




    Do you hear it yet?




    Sound like any particular state in the US?

    Can you now deduce if that sounds like 1 state what "Whiskey" might be referring to? ;) 

    Okay, hold up!!! She totally referred to some big blue buffalo mascot as meat chicken once!!!

    But I'm guessing from this meat chicken is Michigan and Whiskey is Wisconsin...?

    Barb Bliss speak indeed!

    With the snowstorm I finally got a chance to play Wingspan this weekend and I have to say it’s worth the hype.  It plays clean, doesn’t take too much time, has a lot of strategy involved, awesome components, and a unique theme.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  :) 



    I love the little eggs!! Although I'd be tempted to eat them, since they look pretty similar to Cadbury chocolate mini eggs..
