  1. That about sums it up. Especially when family are being a pain in the behind as well. I'm starting to think kids never really grow up even when they are grown up. And I'm fairly sure if I said that to my own Mum, she would laugh and laugh and then laugh some more. ???
  2. Me too! That's stunning. I do love 1920's fashion.
  3. Taymist - Infantry No resolutions as such but I intend to start my intermittent fasting again. I was doing an 18:6 system last year and was feeling so much better on it. Not sure why I let it slide.
  4. Hurrah! Congratulations. That's awesome, Cairos *snugglebites*
  5. A rather late thank you, Lava *huggles* and a Happy Christmas and Hogmanay to you too. *flops into a sofa* First days back at work suck. There's so much to do!!
  6. Some beautiful pics there. I want that dress in the second pic you found, Arie.... the ribbon-y one.
  7. Taymist, Aes Sedai, Red Ajah (PM'ing you, Elgee, just back after the holidays so missed your Discord message, sorry!)
  8. lol you'd be joining another by starting a new one anyway, so there's no difference at the end of the day. Sin may have changed his mind or he may not be that bothered, it's just worth checking so folk don't end up duplicating work and/or stepping on toes. ?
  9. DM Handle: Calindra Character Name: Calindra Hejaran Character Count: (1/24) Age (must be 16 - 21): 21 years old Place of Origin: Caemlyn, Andor Physical Appearance: Calindra appears youthful and delicate; has dark brown eyes; full bodied lips; pale silky skin; a slender neck and delicate brows. Her raven tresses have been captured and braided into a ponytail that lands in the small of her back. Those wisps that remain uncaptured, wave gently in the breeze around her ears. She often wears plate armour and steel greaves to protect her torso and arms. In exchange for higher mobility and agility, she prefers wearing riding leather pants instead of wearing plate on her legs. (Bear in mind this will be after training in regards to the armour. Training equipment/armour is generally standard for everyone. ~Tay~) Personality: Calindra is deeply spiritual and has espoused the belief that life is a never ending struggle between life and death, dark and bright. "Sometimes the Light must brave the darkness. Sometimes the Shadow wins." She is brave and idealistic, which often leads her to rush into a fight without thinking of the consequences. Character History Hailing from a well established merchant family from Caemlyn, Calindra was schooled in the rudiments of business from a very young age, in the hopes that she'd take over the family business. She accompanied her father wherever trade brought him, and was busy seeing a lot of the mainland, its various peoples, traditions, and dialects as she learned how to conduct negotiations, how to value goods, and about the local economies and business mathematics. As with any trade convoys, some of the voyages required mercenaries to protect the convoys. At first, the sword carrying men-in-armour didn't really interest her, unless they had horses. As she grew, however, it became more and more apparent that she was starting to enjoy watching them as they practiced sword handling. Not being one to stay on the sidelines, she decided to take up the sword and begged her father to let her join the mercenaries in their practices. He refused, claiming that a mercenary life wasn't good enough for his daughter, but he had seen the passion in her eyes and knew better than to assume that it had been the end of the discussion. Unknown to her, her father purposely brought them to Tar Valon. He saw how his daughter watched the Warders as they practiced, and he knew that he'd held onto her for as long as he could. Still, he made sure she helped finish their trading business within the city. He eventually turned to their task master, "Get us ready to leave within the hour, will ya? My daughter and I have one last bit of business to do before we get going." "If you're to espouse the blade, daughter, then you will learn from the best masters in the land," he had said when they finally reached one of the local smithies. "I will not stand in the way of your dreams, lass. I see how you look at them as they practice. Smith! No daughter of mine will handle a sword until I'm satisfied that she'll be protected." He turned to her, tears in his eyes, and held her in his arms. He paid the smith when he was done and accompanied her to the Tower gates. "I know you'll do yer ol' father and mother proud, love. I’ll visit when next I can."
  10. It's the Entertainment Club that was interested in hosting it, not the RP. I was just suggesting Cal talk to SinisterDeath before going any further since Entertainment is an existing, active Club and Sin had already expressed interest in running it before this thread started.
  11. Ha! I know that name. *grins* Welcome back, Cleo. Lovely to see you.
  12. You've told me before. I have a very long memory when it comes to good whisky!
  13. He better be decent if he's loitering in the Kafe! This is a respectable establishment *cough* what? *innocent look* We have the ever delicious Pirate Parrot Gumbo on offer, Maera dear, or alternatively there's a nice steak and ale pie in the oven with mashed tatties and gravy. Or if you prefer a non-meat alternative, (though why would anyone in their right mind?), there's some kind of plant based thing in the fridge that could be heated up. We pretty much have ingredients for whatever takes your fancy. *hands the RR's a couple of Guinys each* No spilling that!
  14. Since when were alcohol and hot drinks mutually exclusive? I don't believe you've never had mulled wine or a hot toddy. *slides a double Jameson down the bar to @Cairos* There sweetie, that should do the trick. *adds some hugs*
  15. Yes. Yes it is. Well done. One of my all time favourites.
  16. Welcome back, banded mine. *smoochies and huggles* Good to have you with us again. *arches eyebrow* Whilst I completely approve of the sentiment behind that post, killing horsies is a very bad thing. Just no. Bad Zan, go to the naughty corner! Lava, don't worry about trying to understand, you'll just hurt yourself. Welcome back, Jak.
  17. Thank you, bro and welcome home. I remember you talking about your Dad before. Not sure about the Infantry thread but I'll have a look. I like the poppies too; buying one is a donation direct to charities that specifically support veterans. I bought a pin badge this year from Poppy Scotland because I know they provide funding to the Scottish War Blinded centre at Linburn, just along the road from us. Davy's Dad was very involved there, right up until he passed away, so it's a nice way to keep the connection going.
  18. Tay - Aes Sedai, Red Ajah Snowballs (a drink made with lemonade and Advocaat)
  19. Congrats, minty mine. Job well done. *offers a bunch of lucky white heather*
  20. I wouldn't call it automatic... more like a stream of consciousness.
  21. Yes and Yes (Between you, you've got two of the 3 genres. You're still missing one of those listed against the film.)
  22. I believe Sinister was considering this as part of the Entertainment Club. He'd cleared with me that I didn't intend to have it as part of the RP Club. So may be worth having a chat with him. Be easier working together rather than trying to start a whole new Club. Just a thought.
  23. I'm bonded to one so I may be biased. The Greens are warm, fun people. Always welcoming. Most (though not all) of them are also shameless flirts, in the best possible way. I'd be almost as happy with a Green having my back as a Red. Almost. They're fierce.
  24. Ha! I inundated Lava with photos one day too. She probably regretted asking. The polymer clay is awesome to work with, much warmer in the hand and so far gentler on the joints. Really fun to make as well. I love having unique tools that nobody else has. Which Ajah did you pick in the end... I'm presuming Green was one from the post there?
