Shub-Niggurath...



The Black Goat of the Woods, Mother to the Thousand Young! But enough about my day, how are you all? We've been playing a lot of Arkham Horror lately, and going to Philly next week means we'll have the down-time to play more. I'm kind of dreading a 2-day drive to a city I could care less about. I'd rather be home, indulging in my other hobby: bird watching. I've named the chirpy little cardinal Ygethmor, and the woodpecker Yog-Sothoth.
Last week at yoga, I was the only guy in the class (along with about 12 other women). Now, I've been doing this for a year and a half, and this is only the 2nd time this phenomenon has occurred, but I find it to be surprisingly awkward.
I'm finally motiviated to start painting miniatures again, which is good, since I have over 100 tiny pairs of eyes glaring at me wanting to be painted. Back to the brushes...

I'm rather jealous, Oh Deceiver. I've been wishing that I had some little men to avoid painting. I've been having a yearning for GW lately. Don't know why. I guess I just miss having the hobby. When you're in Philly, you MUST find time to visit the Mutter Museum. If you've never been, it's great. A totally bizarre collection. If you've been before, then go back. How can you hate a place that has a wall of skulls on display? If you do nothing else in Philly, go to the Mutter. It's inspiring. Look it up. I think it's online.

I totally agree with Mark! You have to go there & see the lady that turned into soap!! And the wall of skulls of people that died from various accidents (i.e. falling off trapeze)is worth it. I think they have a bunch of eyeballs in jars too. How much money would it take for you to take a bath with the soap lady?

When mom's in the bathroom, it smells like old soap. Does that count?

Hmmm, I don't think that would count..... But how much money would it take for you to take a bath with THAT soap?

Is "h," if that is her real name, asking how much money it would take for you to take a bath with your mother? 'Cause I'd like to know how much money it would take for you to take a bath with your mom.

No no no! Not with Mom!! What a horrid thought! Mom's "old soap" is just code word for something I cannot bring myself to tell you. Bob can tell you. Go ahead Bobby.
