Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Some info on Poseidon

I chose Poseidon because he is the main god in my D&D world.
The capital city is on a port and well, the sea and all.....

Athena, also referred to as Athene, is a very important goddess of many things.
She is goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, strategic warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill


See.... Even way back then
If it was to be done right,
Us girls had to do it. :wink:

:D :D :D Thor as a platypus! Brilliant.

Is it just me or did the coaxium stealing scene in the new Star Wars film: Solo feel a bit like "The Train Job" from Firefly? But without the witty reparte?

Mal: Hell, this job I would pull for free!
Zoe: Well, can I have your share?
Mal: No!
Zoe: If you die, can I have your share?
Mal: Yes.

LK hasn't been here lately, has she?
I don't recall seeing her for awhile.
Hope all is going well for her and her fur babies.

eta: 7:15am Friday

Just heard Anthony Bourdain has passed away.
So sad and such a shock. Only 61 years old.
Loved his show on CNN.
Will miss him.

No. :( Well, not celebrity wise. They were heavy on Invader Zim this year, and also one of the character actors from Pirates of the Caribbean was there...remember the two goofy pirates who are a bit dumb but funny? One of them, the older, bald guy, was there. Name escapes me. A lot of the vendors are really awesome people, though. And we bumped into a couple friends we haven't seen in a while. Last year they had a couple actors from the Back to the Future franchise, and the year before that, John Rhys Davies!

There's a convention in February in Maryland, just outside of Baltimore, and they've managed to get Wallace Shawn. Inconceivable! ;) The ladies at the booth said he rarely does conventions so they're really stocked to be getting him. So we're thinking of maybe going to that. $60 guarantees you an autograph.

I am not missing----well, missing a few marbles maybe, but that's about it. I know where I am at all times.

Things are not good.

Haven't felt like getting on TORC or check emails.

I apologize I'm not ignoring anyone. I will go answer them now.

LK

Btw, why poor Loki? Are you referring to the movie?

I don't think he's dead. (even Thor wasn't sure.) Loki will never die.

LK!!!
Good to see you.
Sorry it took so long to reply to your post
But I was with Sable all day today and only had time to respond to your email.
I hope things get a lot better for you.
Know you are thought fondly of here
And we miss you when you're gone.

Loki's demise and that of the others,
I do believe are not permanent.
After all Dr. Strange did tell Tony they were in the end game now
I think the good Doc has something up his sleeve.
He did go through all the possibilities and found the one way to win
Right?

Love to your fur babies....
