Bucket O’ Cuteness
Bucket O’ Cuteness

At Pure Spec this past weekend, I have a friend who comes every year for a commission. One year, he wanted “Something Awesome”. (I ended up drawing a raptor in space rocking out with a laser guitar while riding a unicorn. I think that fit the bill.)

This year, he asked for “Something Cute”. I cackled, because if there’s one thing I don’t need to be asked twice to draw, it’s something cute.

Also, since it’s Black Friday and I’m sure everyone sane is inside with their doors and windows barred, I thought I’d mention a less-stressful way to get one’s Christmas presents this year. Many of the Weregeek products are now being carried by Topatoco, which means cheaper shipping within the U.S., and very quick turn-around times on orders!! I believe there’s still time to make an order even if you’re an international customer, so please do check out the new venue of commerce. 🙂

    A “nice” GM is one who slaughters your character quickly, instead of toying with them first.

    Yeah, you do have to be careful with naming ceremonies.

    “Why are you called One-Man-Bucket?”
    “…In my tribe we’re traditionally named after the first thing my mother sees when she looks out of the tepee after the birth. It’s short for One-Man-Pouring-a-Bucket-of-Water-Over-Two-Dogs.”
    “That’s pretty unfortunate.”
    “It’s not too bad. It was my twin brother you had to feel sorry for. She looked out ten seconds before me to give him his name.”
    “Don’t tell me, let me guess. Two-Dogs-Fighting?”
    “Two-Dogs-Fighting? Two-Dogs-Fighting? Wow, he would have given his right arm to be called Two-Dogs-Fighting.”

    – Terry Pratchett, “Reaper Man.”

    During the Vigil year of Order of the Arrow members are given an “indian name”. My father was in charge of lighting the fire when a vigil member threw the “magic twigs” into the fire pit. This individual didn’t listen when my father told him to stand 5-6 feet back when he threw the twigs, so the vigil member took it upon himself to douse the firewood in gas and have a matchbook handy. Suffice it to say, when my father lit the fire in a 5′ diameter burst of flame and the vigil member was crouched right next to with a match, the Vigil member yelled something that he then proceeded to do. That night he was aptly named “Fills-His-Loincloth”
