I have the roller set and love it. I'm not too familiar with the other.

I have the first one as well. Great little thing. I mostly use it to make all kinds of “dumplings” and fudge though, rarely pasta. It’s a great little device.

Found out an old arcade game I used to play is available to play online.

I had misremembered the name so previous searches never found it. I knew it as "Via Kung Fu".
"Best Kung Fu game ever" searches never found it either.

It turns out it's called Yie-Ar Kung Fu and I used to go to every arcade that had the game to destroy by 10 times that machine's high score. I could spend an hour and a half playing on one quarter.

So I spent a few hours late last night playing online and still remembered enough strategy and moves to beat almost all the opponents.

Nice, I remember that one. My 1 quarter game was Arkanoid. There was one in my college’s student union and I finished it more than once on 1 quarter.

The dude at the register where I'll get coffee sometimes has such muscle memory of taking your card even though now it's the self swipe jawn. I just hand it over, and tell him your move.

The thought that the things I do aren't always for naught. I just found out, yesterday, that there is a possibility that my submissions, (slim wallets), will be accepted by a publisher to be included in a book about a specific textile product. My contact, at the publisher, wants to recommend my submissions to a review board for selection. I'm thrilled! I will get an answer the end of next week.

Although I made it to look like leather, it isn't. The material used is a natural, plant-based product, much like cotton. Better yet, I found a way to use all the screen printing ink that I have. It worked perfectly. Solid black on the flap wallet and white ink on the others, so I could transfer images onto them.

This weekend Arik Roper drew a dragon hatching from an egg in my boy's new artists-ive-met sketchbook, David D'Andrea drew a tree growing through a skull. He hasn't put down his pencil and sketchbook since, as well his signature suddenly incorporates a skull.

He's already passed his book on to another artist who took it home. And I have to ask him, not mine to share and he doesn't have a login here. Yet.

It was bound to happen. The skull...also codeblue's perfectly reasonable response.
