  1. Had a lovely (but looong) day of birding today. I took 351 photos! It's gonna take me forever to sort through them all, but here are a few of the good ones I've found so far. 3 photos under the spoiler (for size):
  2. When the highlight of your day is meeting @Steeldancer in person for the first time.
  3. When you see someone on Twitter mention "whatever the Rock is cooking" and you immediately think they're talking about a certain Horneater.
  4. I found a cool moth tonight 3 photos under spoiler: I haven't figured out exactly what it is yet, but I suspect it's some type of tiger moth.
  5. I was unable to resist meme-ing @Calderis's response when the topic of Fan-X this weekend came up:
  6. Even though I can't afford to buy Legion right now, I definitely plan to come to the release just to hang out.
  7. YKYASF when your family is discussing languages at lunch and your dad mentions the Japanese word "kata" and you immediately think of Kaladin's spear katas.
  8. Inspired by @TwiLyghtSansSparkles's wildly popular thread Memefying Books, I present... Memefying What Happened in Portland! Same premise as Twi's thread, but for the Reckoners RPG. I know many Sharders (myself among them) are a little wary of diving into this subforum because of how MUCH there is to read in here, so I'm hoping this thread will get more people interested in the amazing storytelling going on in here. To get the ball rolling, I have made a few memes from the first page of posts in the Portland thread. Enforcement officers outside Fortuity's penthouse in the OP: CorpseMaker at the end of The Only Joe's 2nd post: Nathan after spending a few hours with Doctor Funtimes:
  9. Ah, ok. I tagged you because I remembered you had come to meetings in the past. Best of luck with your mission!!
  10. I went to a local park to look for milkweed seeds this evening, and I found a bunch! Milkweed is what monarch caterpillars eat, and my mom has been raising them this summer, so she asked me to get her some seeds of the kind of milkweed that grows in Utah but not where she lives in Ohio. So that was neat. And while I was at the park I got some nice photos of a kingfisher! I didn't have any good ones until now, because kingfishers aren't very cooperative: Usually they fly away as soon as you look at them, let alone put your camera up. But this one spent several minutes sitting on a little pier at a pond, diving off every once in a while to catch fish. 3 photos under the spoiler:
  11. @Bleeder it helps that the old limitations on thread size are gone.
  12. I'm fine meeting elsewhere. @RippleGylf @CarolaDavar What about y'all? Would you be all right meeting somewhere other than BYU campus?
  13. If you haven't already, you should read this fanfic by @Overlord Jebus (Oathbringer spoilers):
  14. 100% me. Also, an updated version of one of my old "Sanderfan speed dating" memes:
  15. Y'know, I used to find the car salesman memes not all that funny, but these Cosmere ones you guys have been posting are gold.
  16. I'm going to be out of Utah for about a week beginning on August 28, so it's unlikely I'll be able to make it to an August meeting. If the rest of y'all can make it, though, don't let my absence stop you from getting together. I'm looking forward to meeting you in person, @Steeldancer!
  17. It's one of my favorite movies too! I own the soundtrack, and I've still got my ticket stub from when I saw it in the theater way back in 2007. XD And yes, the pirates are great. Captain Shakespeare is so funny!
  18. Correct! Glad it made sense.
  19. I wrote a limerick about a movie. Anyone care to guess the movie title? Three witches were trying to find The heart of a star most divine. They cornered Yvaine, Attacked her in vain: She did what stars do best--they shine.
  20. You know you're a Sanderfan when someone abbreviates "Critical Role" as CR and you interpret it as "Cognitive Realm."
  21. @Ashspren and @Unlicensed Hemalurgist, fantastic Elantris and Mistborn parodies!! Well done, both of you!
  22. @Caesura It really is! I can't stop thinking about it.
  23. I wrote a review for an amazing webcomic I discovered recently, The Carpet Merchant of Konstantiniyya: Sunbird's book review.
  24. Huh. Yeah, I got nothing. Sorry. But in other news, nature photodump incoming! Birds, part 1 (5 photos): Birds, part 2 (5 photos): Insects (3 photos): Bunny (1 photo): WARNING: Under this next spoiler is a SNAKE photo. Totally innocent photo unless you have a snake phobia, so this is just a heads-up.
