Well, it depends on a few things.

1. The person I am hired to bother
2. The degree to which I am expected to bother them
3. Number of mediums in which I engage in bothersome behavior
4. Supplies needed to be efficiently bothersome

For you, illustrious admin? I might consider making a special deal. Say...getting InfamousDasher and I in a 5E game together with a paired application?

So far I feel like I'm letting her down a bit. I wanted to bad for her to join me here for some games, but we are having little luck so far. I of course realize this is the nature of the beast having been here for so long, just feeling a bit discouraged and venting is all.

Anyways! Whose the sucker?

I'm a meadmaker!

I'd like to say I was influenced by DnD and other medieval themes but that's not the case. A friend of mine shared some that he made and I thought it was fantastic! Unfortunately, mead is not widely available in my area. So in order to get my fix, I had to start making my own.

I've been doing it for about 7 years or so and it's still exciting to do. It's always fun to make something that you can't find anywhere close by.

Neat!! My mind immediately went to Robin Hood lol

How does mead compare to beer? Is it lighter? Or just depends on how you want to make it?

Well, I don't DM 5th edition...

So, I guess Squeak will go un-harrassed.

If its just honey, water, and yeast, its closer to a light, white wine but with a honey flavor to it. But the beauty of mead is that it is extremely versatile and plays well with so many ingredients. For instance, I have one that I added pomegranates to and its more like a red wine. I also have one I'm making now where I've mixed raisins, dark rum, and caramelized honey and is being aged on oak so that it will have an oaky, rum raisin, caramel flavor. There's also beer/mead hybrids. I made one a while back where I made a light lager and kegged it with a couple pounds of honey. It came out to be a light, refreshing beer with a honey sweetness.

I can ramble on forever since there are so many flavor profiles to mead.

I've started somewhere around 20 Cross Stitch and Latch Hook projects since I was 18 and I think I've only finished ONE.... But I love doing them... when I have time that is

The vast majority of my spare time is spent doing one thing - Karate.
I've been doing it for about 8 years, and I train four days a week. Outside of my roleplaying games I have very little time for anything else.

I will always read "karate" as kah-rah-teh.

I just love it when people try to correct me on that pronunciation.
It's my second favourite thing after getting punched in the neck.

On second thought, I do actually have one other hobby.

My other hobby is intentionally mispronouncing words, to find out who is annoying enough to correct me.

@UncaJJ: I thought it looked familiar! Lol It's a big seller at my store (I'm a flooring specialist for Lowes.)

I used to mentor in taekwondo. I don't care what anyone says, getting kicked in the throat by a seven year old hurts.

Librarian: I much prefer Lowes to Home Depot, mostly because of the MUCH better customer service!
And the Pearl was actually quite reasonable in price, AND looks awesome!
We did spend a ton on getting the Schluter Ditra underlayment though (With help from my BIL)... but not going to use that for my shower, that bleep is EXPENSIVE!

And ShiftyCourtney, I would be one of the people to try to correct your pronunciation LOL As long as it was something I was sure about.
One of the things that causes my eye to twitch is a local bail bonds radio commercial... for example they have aline "Easey Squeezy Leamon Peasey" *shudders*

I like to read really edgy/low-quality fiction because it helps me figure out where the line is between having a dark moment/interaction/world and just being a 2007 scene kid.

I've read some pretty horrendous stuff and I've learned a lot about writing characters from this little weird-ass hobby and lemme tell you, interesting/unique/different designs are wasted way more than I wish they were.

Super excited to attempt to add a new hobby to my craft list!

Just ordered Dice Molds to test out with resin!

I've never messed around with resin so I know there will be a lot of trial and error. But I can't wait!

I've been looking for dice molds so I can make some edible dice (I make gummies) but finding good ones is bloody difficult, what ones have you bought?
