Pretty experienced Discord user here is that is any use?

Your right, Alaric has the more chiseled chin and jaw. Like a warrior should.
I like the new Alaric very much and the "eye shadow" looks like deep set eyes in the picture you show here.
3
Actually, Alaric (the new version) and Duncan have very different face shapes in addition to their hair styles being different. Duncan's features (like most Kens) are less angular. That was one of the things I liked about the Harley Ken headsculpt, actually. It's so different from the other Ken headsculpts I have that it stands out in the crowd.

Here's a shot of Duncan for comparison:



Awww, doesn't he look like he'd make a great "Uncle Duncan"?   ;D
4
Alaric looks great, Evie!  I was afraid he was going to look too much like Duncan. I mean identical twins.  Although now I see Alaric properly dressed in Duke of Corwyn attire I don't see Duncan anymore, I see Alaric.  Good Job!
5
So last night I finally decided to replace Alaric's head with an undamaged one. For those of you who have been following this project from the start, you might remember that when I first transferred Alaric's original head to his new action figure body, I accidentally melted part of his hair in doing so. (I was using a friend's blow drier instead of my own, since we were out of town, and didn't realize how much hotter her drier runs than the one I was used to using for the purpose.) I tried to fix his hairstyle, but there was no getting around the fact that what remained unmelted was still frizzy beyond repair. Unfortunately, the formerly inexpensive "Hottie Ken" who was the Original Mini-Alaric's head donor is no longer inexpensive and easy to find. But I had a blond Harley Davidson Ken lying around with short golden hair, and thought he might make a decent replacement. I hadn't been using him because his original body doesn't sit up properly, but his head/neck join area is an even better fit for adapting to an action figure body than "Hottie Ken's" head is, without requiring any major cutting away of original vinyl and creating a new socket with 2-part silicone putty like I had to do to adapt Alaric's original head to fit his new body.

When I showed a photo of the Harley Davidson Ken head in the chat room last night, the one problem with it seemed to be that, when viewed in magnified close up, the HD Ken appears to be wearing eye makeup.  ;D (It's actually not meant to be eye makeup. It's meant to look like the dark shadow one sees in the crease of deep set eyes, which have to be painted onto a Ken head since of course they don't actually have eye sockets.)  This Ken, unlike most, has fairly chiseled, angular facial planes, so the eye paint tries to replicate shadowing in what would be the eye socket area of an actual face. But in very close magnification, the effect doesn't work. I tried to see if I could smudge the shadow a bit or erase it completely using a toothpick wrapped in a tiny bit of cotton and dipped in nail polish, but unfortunately the area between eyebrow and eyelid is only barely the width of a toothpick, and while I managed to scrub just a tiny bit of the shadow off, I was afraid to get too much acetone in this area for fear of ruining his eyes completely.  (And while this Ken was reasonably priced when I first bought him, I think his selling price on eBay nowadays is well over $100, so I am not willing to risk ruining him because I can't afford to replace him!) So live and learn. I will just have to avoid any extreme close-up shots of him. Fortunately from any reasonable distance, he looks fine.  ;D

Here is Alaric version 2 with Kelson and Araxie:



And here he is saying goodbye to his original head:

[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:14:25 PM EDT] <KK> Hello, folks. Bynw, I tried the other link, but no one seems to be there and talking.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:14:37 PM EDT] <Evie> Hi
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:14:46 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, yeah, we're all here. :D
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:15:10 PM EDT] <bynw> KK, that's just an experimental thing .... only a few of us are in that chat
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:15:19 PM EDT] <bynw> it's totally separate platform from here
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:15:19 PM EDT] <derynifank> Tried it last night and I liked it
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:15:20 PM EDT] <Evie> It's not linked to this room yet (if ever)
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:15:21 PM EDT] <The_Bee> We've been talking about Mexican food.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:15:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Oh, and also, there are sugar cookies on the tea table.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:15:40 PM EDT] <judyward> And now I want some!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:15:46 PM EDT] <KK> Yum, sugar cookies!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:15:49 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I baked a batch yesterday to take to SCA fighter practice this afternoon, and there's a little less than half the batch left.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:15:50 PM EDT] * bynw munches on some more of them
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:15:56 PM EDT] <jemler> and caramel stroopwafels
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:16:17 PM EDT] <Evie> I'm sort of wanting some sugar cookies with crystallized ginger chips in them now.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:16:20 PM EDT] <judyward> What is that? It sounds good!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:16:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Ooh, that sounds yummy!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:16:35 PM EDT] <Evie> stroopwafel is a Dutch cookie
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:16:41 PM EDT] <judyward> All of it does & I haven't had dinner yet!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:16:56 PM EDT] <judyward> I like the Dutch!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:17:18 PM EDT] <Evie> Traditionally it's served with coffee or tea, and you put the stroopwafel on top of your mug or cup to heat in the rising steam (but not so long that it sags into your drink)
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:17:26 PM EDT] <DesertRose> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stroopwafel
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:17:27 PM EDT] <jemler> pot roast, mashed potatoes, and roasted carrots.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:17:42 PM EDT] <Evie> My best friend is Dutch, so he introduced me to them when we visited Amsterdam
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:17:52 PM EDT] <derynifank> That sounds really good Jemler
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:18:05 PM EDT] <Evie> After I said I had heard about them on a show about Dutch street food and wanted to try one
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:18:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> :D
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:18:24 PM EDT] <Evie> Yum, jemler!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:18:49 PM EDT] <judyward> I'm soooo hungry, now!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:19:27 PM EDT] <judyward> Or in Spanish, "Tengo apetito!"
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:19:36 PM EDT] <derynifank> Never chat before supper, will make you really hungry
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:19:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL, right?!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:20:10 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I sometimes eat while chatting.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:20:27 PM EDT] <Evie> I sometimes chat while eating.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:20:30 PM EDT] <Evie> ;-)
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:20:31 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:20:43 PM EDT] <judyward> I had a big lunch with my bestie today.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:20:59 PM EDT] <Evie> That sounds like fun
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:21:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Somebody had brought these little Moroccan meat pies to the fighter practice this afternoon; they were delicious, and I wish I'd thought to ask who brought them so I could pester them for the recipe!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:21:17 PM EDT] <judyward> Yep, went to Logan's Roadhouse.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:22:00 PM EDT] <derynifank> What do you do at fighter practice?
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:22:03 PM EDT] <Evie> My DH really likes Logan's. I like their yeast rolls.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:22:05 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Do they serve roadkill? ;)
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:22:08 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, the fighters practice fighting.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:22:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The rest of us hung out and socialized. :D
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:22:30 PM EDT] <judyward> No roadkill and the rolls are DEEEE-licious!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:22:35 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And nag the fighters to drink water.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:22:55 PM EDT] <Evie> Logan's is definitely not the place to take anyone with a peanut allergy, though!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:23:06 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Or Five Guys.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:23:18 PM EDT] <judyward> LOL! NO! Peanuts on every table & shells on the floor.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:23:20 PM EDT] <derynifank> What kind of fighting do they do? Are any mounted
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:23:25 PM EDT] <DesertRose> No, no mounted.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:23:43 PM EDT] <judyward> There are mounted at Scarborough Faire up near Dallas.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:23:56 PM EDT] <DesertRose> There's the "heavy" fighters, who wear full armor and use rattan swords, and then the "light" fighters, who fight with rapiers, in slightly lighter armor. :D
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:24:07 PM EDT] <The_Bee> boxing, wrestling or swordplay?
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:24:08 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (Blunted tips on the rapiers)
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:24:09 PM EDT] <derynifank> Would like to see that
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:24:12 PM EDT] <Evie> In my SCA kingdom, there are some equestrians who do mounted activities, but I don't think there are as many as there used to be, and it never got too far off the ground here because of that.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:24:20 PM EDT] <judyward> That would steam you in a hurry in summer.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:24:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Also, there's a problem with event sites being horse-friendly.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:24:33 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Some are, some aren't.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:24:41 PM EDT] <judyward> No problem at SF
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:24:56 PM EDT] <Evie> Horses are too expensive for most folks to be able to afford. DH did some of the equestrian stuff with loaner horses, but you still have to put a lot of time and money into making or buying the gear.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:25:19 PM EDT] <judyward> And training the horse. They have jousting at SF
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:25:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup. And horses eat a LOT and you have to have space for the horse to live, which isn't cheap whether you own the land yourself or place the horse at a boarding stable.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:25:38 PM EDT] <judyward> Not REAL jousting of course.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:25:45 PM EDT] <KK> No boxing or wrestling, Bee. Unless they've changed the rules in the last few decades.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:25:49 PM EDT] <DesertRose> No.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:25:51 PM EDT] <Evie> We don't have jousting at other riders due to safety concerns, but we do have tilting at rings, at the quintain, etc.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:26:36 PM EDT] <derynifank> That sounds like fun
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:26:37 PM EDT] <Evie> It's medieval martial arts, Bee. Mostly sword/polearms/other bladed weapons.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:26:37 PM EDT] <judyward> Ah, the rings! Little Alaric excelled at that!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:26:53 PM EDT] <Evie> Well, fake bladed weapons and real armor. Much safer that way.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:26:55 PM EDT] <judyward> And cudgels?
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:27:24 PM EDT] <Evie> In boffer tourneys, you can use fake cudgels. (Usually something padded and wrapped in duct tape.)
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:27:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> ALL the duct tape. :D
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:27:47 PM EDT] <Evie> The SCA is held together with duct tape. LOL!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:28:01 PM EDT] <judyward> Even with padding you can get some whacks!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:28:03 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Sometimes I think if the SCA stopped being a thing, the manufacturers of duct tape would at least see a serious hit on their profits, if not go out of business entirely.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:28:07 PM EDT] <derynifank> Isn't everything?
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:28:31 PM EDT] <KK> The Universe is held together with duct tape--the Force. Dark on one side and light on the other, and binds the universse together.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:28:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Oh yeah, the fighters will compare bruises. "Yeah, [Other Fighter] landed a great wrap shot right there!"
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:28:35 PM EDT] <judyward> If it moves and shouldn't, duct tape. If it should move and doesn't, WD40.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:28:39 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup :D
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:28:55 PM EDT] * IIsi50MHz peeks in
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:28:56 PM EDT] <derynifank> True
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:29:05 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi IIsi50MHz
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:29:07 PM EDT] <Evie> Speaking of little Alaric (the plastic one), since I ruined my original Alaric head by accidentally melting part of his hair, I am thinking of head swapping with a different head, but if i do, it won't look the same, since the Ken I got his original head from is a 1990s era Ken who is expensive if
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:29:07 PM EDT] <Evie> you can find him now.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:30:17 PM EDT] <Evie> Was considering this guy, because he has lighter blond hair than most Kens, it's rooted (unlike the current generation of them), and i think his head would pop onto Alaric's action figure body easily. https://www.flickr.com/gp/9573389@N08/875q91

[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:30:49 PM EDT] <judyward> That Ken seems to like eye makeup
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:31:04 PM EDT] <derynifank> Love it
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:31:21 PM EDT] <judyward> Good one DR!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:31:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Substitute the beverage of your choice for the Corona. :D
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:31:52 PM EDT] <jemler> https://www.ebay.com/itm/Retired-Ken-Doll-Disney-1990s-Prince-w-Long-Blonde-Hair-Nude-Male-Rare/153138753920?hash=item23a7c7f180:g:-7sAAOSwn3VauFop:sc:USPSFirstClass!43920!US!-1
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:32:00 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL! I think that's meant to represent regular eyelid shadowing + lashes (without drawing individual lashes and making him look like he wears mascara). This was originally the Harley Davidson Ken.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:32:51 PM EDT] <derynifank> Did Ken havea younger brother or cousin or something?
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:33:02 PM EDT] <judyward> Then the eye makeup is REALLY strange!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:33:18 PM EDT] <Evie> Two problems with that one, jemler. 1) Alaric has short hair, and 2) that generation of Ken has a neck joint that would need serious surgery to fit onto an action figure body
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:33:39 PM EDT] <judyward> I think there was a younger guy for Barbie's niece or whatever. Skipper?
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:33:51 PM EDT] <KK> He could work, Evie. And Jemler's suggestion, also. (I wondr if the long hair could be put in a border braid.)
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:33:56 PM EDT] <Evie> That's why I'm saying I don't think it's meant to be eye makeup, though I can see how it might look that way.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:34:07 PM EDT] <derynifank> Did he by any chance have blond hair?
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:34:31 PM EDT] <Evie> Skipper is Barbie's teen sister.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:34:37 PM EDT] <judyward> Didn't Alaric grow his hair longer when Border Braids became at think at Kelson's court?
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:35:03 PM EDT] <Evie> You might be thinking of Todd, but it's rare to find a Todd, and he's usually got dark brown hair. And he looks to be in his young teens, I think.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:35:23 PM EDT] <jemler> i don't think so judy.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:35:30 PM EDT] <Evie> I don't think he ever did in the books, though who knows what happened after 1128.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:35:38 PM EDT] <judyward> True.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:35:45 PM EDT] <Evie> Well, KK might know, but she hasn't written past 1128. :-D
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:36:13 PM EDT] <judyward> And next project is before then, too.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:36:24 PM EDT] <The_Bee> IIRC Kelson, Rory and Payne went for border braids.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:37:00 PM EDT] <derynifank> Don't think Alaric would go for long hair but Kelric might

[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:37:23 PM EDT] <KK> Alaric could well have grown out his hair later in life. But meanwhile, the short-haired Ken looks good.

[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:37:40 PM EDT] <Evie> I might be able to go in with acetone and tone down the shadows on the Harley Davidson Ken, but I think they are meant to represent the shadows in the crease of deep set eyes. I don't think they meant to have Harley Davidson Ken wearing eye makeup. :-D

[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:42:48 PM EDT] * The_Bee sets out a pitcher of sweet tea, plus tall glasses
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:42:54 PM EDT] <judyward> I really don't understand the dice part.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:42:58 PM EDT] <Evie> That was me asking derynibot to roll two 6-sided dice
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:43:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> judyward, what are you having trouble with, re: the dice?
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:43:15 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Evie, save that! We may need it
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:43:16 PM EDT] <judyward> Adding coffee to the table
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:43:40 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL! OK. Bynw, can I apply that roll to my next action, whatever it is?
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:43:47 PM EDT] <judyward> I know if they win or lose but don't know what all the stuff means
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:43:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Oh, there's an Asian fusion restaurant catty-corner from the park where we had fighter practice, and I learned today that they make iced Turkish coffee, which sounds delectable, if potently caffeinated.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:44:35 PM EDT] <Jerusha> A cold shot?
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:44:50 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Most rolls have to match a test value; generally, a die has to come up as a 5 or 6 to pass the test, but for some easier tasks (and the standard of "easy" varies by character sometimes), a 4 may pass as well.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:44:56 PM EDT] <jemler> i hate cold coffee.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:45:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Apparently with milk/cream in it as well, Jerusha.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:45:02 PM EDT] <Evie> Judyward, basically any time one of our dice rolls a 5 or a 6, that is a success. Sometimes other factors let us roll more or less than 2 dice, or will allow us to succeed if we get at least a 4. But in general, it takes a 5 or a 6.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:45:29 PM EDT] <Shiral> Sounds delish. Especially on an August day in Florida
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:45:35 PM EDT] <Evie> And if we roll our dice and everything is below whatever high number we need to succeed (if we get a 2 and a 3, for instance), that's a failure.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:45:45 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yes, although I wasn't sure about dairy on a day as hot and humid as today was. :D

[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:46:15 PM EDT] <DesertRose> But I will have to pop back into that part of town (where I go fairly frequently anyway because the supermarket I usually patronize is in that area), I'm going to have to try that coffee!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:46:17 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Oops, JudyWard
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:46:17 PM EDT] <derynifank> iced coffee with cream and sugar tastes a lot like coffee ice cream

[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:48:22 PM EDT] <judyward> First time I've ever been booted. <G>
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:48:22 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Bird or fruit?
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:48:36 PM EDT] <DesertRose> IRC client, but I think it refers to the fruit. :D
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:48:38 PM EDT] <Evie> It happens to us all at some time, Judy
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:48:41 PM EDT] <judyward> The fruit, I think.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:48:46 PM EDT] <derynifank> I get booted a lot some nights
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:49:07 PM EDT] <judyward> I've seen that, DFK
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:49:46 PM EDT] * Evie belatedly sees DFK's comment and goes "Yum" because she loves coffee ice cream!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:49:53 PM EDT] <derynifank> some nights even duct tape can't hold me
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:49:58 PM EDT] <judyward> LOL!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:50:10 PM EDT] <judyward> Yum on the coffee, Evie.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:50:10 PM EDT] <Shiral> I rather like coffee ice cream myself
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:50:19 PM EDT] <Jerusha> More duct tape!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:50:41 PM EDT] <derynifank> there is also a coffee yogurt that is really good
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:50:43 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Or Gorilla glue
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:50:51 PM EDT] <jemler> i'll stick to butter-pecan ice cream.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:50:53 PM EDT] <judyward> Eeeek!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:51:05 PM EDT] <judyward> Or it will stick to you
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:51:06 PM EDT] <Evie> I read that as "peanut butter ice cream" at first
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:51:16 PM EDT] <Evie> I like butter-pecan
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:51:26 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Butter pecan gorilla glue?
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:51:34 PM EDT] <judyward> I like Baskin-Robbins Peanut Butter Chocolate.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:51:51 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That sounds like a peanut butter cup in ice cream form. :D
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:52:00 PM EDT] <Evie> Ice cream, preferably. Butter Pecan Gorilla Glue would stick to the roof of your mouth. And your tongue. And your lips. And everything else. :-D
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:52:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> To say nothing of the bugs it would likely attract.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:52:18 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I donít like peanut butter
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:52:21 PM EDT] <Shiral> I generally try to keep chocolates and glue separate.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:52:30 PM EDT] <Shiral> Even though I'm a fool for peanut butter cups
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:52:32 PM EDT] <Evie> Lately I've become a fan of green tea ice cream
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:52:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> They glue themselves to my hips, though. :D
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:52:39 PM EDT] <Shiral> Every now and then, I just gotta have one
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:52:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (Chocolates, that is.)
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:52:46 PM EDT] <judyward> Speaking of food, little Hutto is getting a DQ, Chik-fil-a, Wendy's, Popeye's & something else I can't remember, OH! A Panda.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:53:23 PM EDT] <derynifank> Wow, a fsat food invasion
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:53:37 PM EDT] <judyward> Soon all the fast food will be within 2 miles of us.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:53:38 PM EDT] <Jerusha> They donít eat pandas, do they?
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:53:41 PM EDT] <derynifank> fast that is
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:53:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It was a big deal when the town where I was born finally got a McDonald's.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:53:52 PM EDT] <judyward> LOL! I hope not, Jerusha
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:54:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Of course, at that time, the population and the elevation were about the same, so. . . ;)
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:54:17 PM EDT] <Jerusha> That was my town too
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:54:19 PM EDT] <judyward> We already have a McD's, Subway & Taco Bell, and Chili's
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:54:46 PM EDT] <derynifank> You may never have to cook again
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:54:47 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Although, to be fair, the town is on the Colorado Plateau, so the elevation is into four figures, anyway.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:54:50 PM EDT] <judyward> The 300 unit apt complex is renting now.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:55:02 PM EDT] <KK> Whoops, hungry husband making noises. Gotta go. See you guys next week at our usual time.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:55:12 PM EDT] <jemler> nite kk
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:55:14 PM EDT] <judyward> You should develop good lungs at that elevation!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:55:14 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, see you next week, KK! Thanks for coming to visit us!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:55:18 PM EDT] <Evie> Goodnight!
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:55:21 PM EDT] <bynw> thanks for coming tonight KK
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:55:22 PM EDT] <judyward> Bye, KK
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:55:22 PM EDT] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:55:23 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Nighters. KK
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:55:23 PM EDT] <derynifank> nite KK
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:55:25 PM EDT] <bynw> see you next week
[Sunday, August 19, 2018] [7:55:31 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I probably couldn't breathe there any more! I've been at sea level too long!

HeHehe.  The fear Ward is Feyds. the Derbyshire Spiders are mine. I was thinking of the Hobit when all the dwarves get caught in the forest of spiders and every one but Bilbo gets cocooned.
Gives me the shivers.  Don't put any blame on the four that didn't pass that roll. I would not have passed it either. **Shiver again**

Actually  spiders are good insects. They catch and eat the bad ones. Hiwever, wouldn't want to get caught in a Web or encounter  oNE of Feyd's monsters. Scary

I'm with Jeb - I hate spiders!

The spider-ward was a brilliant idea!  I shudder to think what happens next.
