    I can haz no stoopid today, just headache.


    Despite that, I managed to make a render of my customized Supersuit material zones.


    It is not really that good, because I kinda got impatient with lights and stuff, and I am not really satisfied with that hair, but it'll have to do for now.


    You can see the original (3000x3000) here and 800x800 right below...

    Also: I have totally forgotten how to use rigidity groups etc in order to turn that breastplate to breastplate.


    Someone refresh my memory if that's how I should do it, so I can check it out in the morn... I'm off to bed.

    That tortoise got a helmet put on his back. Instead of complaining he just moved on with his life while the helmet remained on his back.

    Why should he complain? I think it's great the government is finally supplying the indigenous tortoises of dangerous war
    zones with proper protection. It's way overdue, I feel. Way overdue. (")/^^^^\_

    Got sent this in an email this morning, just thought it belonged here.


    Subject: Buying A Swimsuit In 2012

    When I was a child in the 1940s, the bathing suit for the mature figure was boned, trussed and reinforced, not so much sewn as engineered. They were built to hold back and uplift, and they did a good job.
    Today's stretch fabrics are designed for the prepubescent girl with a figure carved from a potato chip.

    The mature woman has a choice, she can either go up front to the maternity department and try on a floral suit with a skirt, coming away looking like a hippopotamus that escaped from Disney's Fantasia, or she can wander around every run-of-the-mill department store trying to make a sensible choice from what amounts to a designer range of fluorescent rubber bands.

    What choice did I have? I wandered around, made my sensible choice and entered the chamber of horrors known as the fitting room. The first thing I noticed was the extraordinary tensile strength of the stretch material. The Lycra used in bathing costumes was developed, I believe, by NASA to launch small rockets from a slingshot, which gives the added bonus that if you manage to actually lever yourself into one, you would be protected from shark attacks. Any shark taking a swipe at your passing midriff would immediately suffer whiplash. I fought my way into the bathing suit, but as I twanged the shoulder strap in place I gasped in horror, my boobs had disappeared!

    Eventually, I found one boob cowering under my left armpit. It took a while to find the other. At last I located it flattened beside my seventh rib. The problem is that modern bathing suits have no bra cups. The mature woman is now meant to wear her boobs spread across her chest like a speed bump. I realigned my speed bump and lurched toward the mirror to take a full view assessment. The bathing suit fit all right, but unfortunately it only fitted those bits of me willing to stay inside it. The rest of me oozed out rebelliously from top, bottom and sides. I looked like a lump of Playdoh wearing undersized cling wrap.

    As I tried to work out where all those extra bits had come from, the prepubescent sales girl popped her head through the curtain, "Oh, there you are," she said, admiring the bathing suit. I replied that I wasn't so sure and asked what else she had to show me. I tried on a cream crinkled one that made me look like a lump of masking tape, and a floral two-piece that gave the appearance of an oversized napkin in a serving ring.

    I struggled into a pair of leopard-skin bathers with ragged frills and came out looking like Tarzan's Jane, pregnant with triplets and having a rough day.

    I tried on a black number with a midriff fringe and looked like a jellyfish in mourning.

    I tried on a bright pink pair with such a high cut leg I thought I would have to wax my eyebrows to wear them.

    Finally, I found a suit that fit, it was a two-piece affair with a shorts-style bottom and a loose blouse-type top. It was cheap, comfortable, and bulge-friendly, so I bought it. My ridiculous search had a successful outcome, I figured.

    When I got it home, I found a label that read, "Material might become transparent in water." So, if you happen to be on the beach or near any other body of water this year and I'm there too, I'll be the one in cut-off jeans and a T-shirt!

    You'd better be laughing or rolling on the floor by this time. Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain, with or without a stylish bathing suit!

    I love tankinis with boadshorts!
    the one I have passes as a singlet top with inbuilt foam cups to accomodate my DD boobs hoisted and deceptively firm!
    (I HAVE worn it as a top with jeans! it is double black lycra with a frangipani on it as well as the inbuilt shelf bra, so no transparency issues!)
    the boadshorts match and hide my celulite thighs!

    Cho, are you sure that bathing suit article wasn't written anonymously by Dave Barry? :lol: He's written some priceless stuff over the years.

    I do not think she claimed to wrote it. She said that she got that in her email.

    I went to this room with a special kind of chair. I sat on it for a while and took away my feeling that I have to pee.

    Time for some silliness. I made a screen-capture (as I have the DVD), and loaded it into Photoshop. Hmmm, wanted to make it a bit different, hence the hieroglyphics...

    @ Kyoto Kid, let me know if and when you get some stories posted to any site. I'm stuck alone now days, all my RPG friends have moved away. We still enjoy blabbing on the phone about the old days but it's just too far for any of us to get together again. I tried starting a new group but thought better of it when only 15-18 year olds started asking to join. I dont think I need people wondering why my house is full of kids.

    ...will definitely do so.


    If I can recover those files from the old HD (even in plain text format) I'll see about breaking up the stories into manageable sized chapters so they are easier to post or at the very least to attach to emails.


    Going to start playing in my friend's London After the Shadows campaign this weekend. The freestyle space campaign we last were in (where my character was a "techno fey") was an advanced BTL simulation in which our characters in the upcoming London setting were participating. Kind of fitting that Her Grace Countess Grande adopted the persona of a mischievous child like red haired fey since she adopted Leela in her "RL" (wasn't really clued in when we started).


    ...exhibits A (Kaylee) and B (Leela) for reference (ack! they reversed positions).


    [Rescaled, didn't realise it was it was 900 x 800]

    I saw email saying there was a new post and I clicked on link in email and it went directly to new post. I need to get to sleep soon, but I am not tired.

    Why does Micah have to lick his butt while sitting next to me? There is nothing I can do about it though. Now he is licking his thighs. I can offer to give him regular baths so he would not have to lick himself but he is hydrophobic so I doubt he would like that.

    He's doing it to be social. Cat grooming activity is social activity. Ever seen how mommy cat licks her kittehs? And then the kittehs lick each other? That's social grooming. You should try to stroke his head with a single finger, along fur, so it feels like he's getting groomed.

    I will try to remember that when he is licking himself next to me. Right now he is not. Glad I do not have to lick him as he is covered with fur and that does not sound fun.

    Yes, that's not a good idea. Nor is licking his butt. Ew.

    He can lick his own butt. I am not going to do that for him.

    Sci Fi or Fantasy races that have evolved from cats do not have to do the same thing as cats. Some say humans evolved from apes, but humans generally do not do everything an ape does.

    AH yes, but if you study the mating dances of some groups of hormonal teenagers on street corners, you can see that some things haven't changed.
