Posted by wonko on September 29, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, wtf |

“The Lady of the Lake,… [angels sing] …her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. [singing stops] THAT is why I’m your king!”: “Listen, strange women, lyin’ in ponds, distributin’ swords is no basis for […]

688: (138/365) Max Hulme’s Chess Bishop

Posted by wonko on May 18, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

Integral to the war effort, the church remains a dangerous player on the board: This is Max Hulme’s “Bishop” – a lovely little Pontif-ish chap that is missing his golden hook and holy relic.

Posted by wonko on February 9, 2014 in domestic |

My heuristic is that we do not get mail on Fridays – not sure it is always true but mostly. Last Friday I therefore did not check the mailbox. Sunday I discovered my Tanteidan had been delivered on Friday and I had left it for nearly 2 days before opening it. On the cover, Gen […]
