Did some work on this very grimy converted Chaos Rhino tonight. #wh40k #warhammer40k #chaos #wordbearers @Andr6wMale I used to love the Molesworth books as a kid. I’ll have to revisit them. @RomGothSam Lucifer Morningstar @everdundas @HelenVMurray I’m similar. I only started enjoying Christmas when I decided never to do family stuff ag… @MattRCrofts @GamingTheGothic @RGoughThomas @literaryla @propergoffic I keep meaning to read these @Skionar I like Scrivener a lot. I like being able to write on the computer and then review/edit on my phone/tablet.Everyone: I can’t see my family at Christmas Me: @Jendeavour Is Crying Child Masterchef a thing? Genuinely considering buying a TV if so.
@frankendodo Required to? Made to? @frankendodo I can kind of get the gist of this but I’m struggling with “gezwungenermaßen”? @everdundas @HelenMcClory @ioannaonline The three classic endings: hah, ugh and meh. @SwanRiverPress Juggled it mate @burdellen_ Cool! I’m slowly collecting expansions when I see them second hand.Today I lifted our fridge and accidentally used all my manliness quota for the year. @HelenMcClory They just have to hold the book very still. @HelenMcClory A lenticular sticker that flicks between happy and sad. Actually, have the whole book be a lenticular… @HelenMcClory Just do a happy ending and a sad ending so people can choose the one they want. Job done. @HelenMcClory People get very upset about the idea of trigger/content warnings. I wonder if they see the irony in that. @burdellen_ My wife and I really enjoy Carcassonne, too. Very simple game but very strategic. @burdellen_ Blackstone Fortress! Great game. Have you seen the Warhammer Underworlds game? They might enjoy that if they like BSF. @ColemanDennehy @AmyEaston19 As far as I know, no actual proof of them being witches was produced. @damonayoung It’s how stuffed peppers were invented @damonayoung The Roast Pepper DecapitationCaught my sub-editor sleeping on the job.
Absolutely. I read it as a reader and critic and think how it could be better. @Lambo88 I don’t know but I’m drooling at the thought
@_H_Ballantyne @RomGothSam The Modern Pro-yeet-eus @RomGothSam Showing off. Statues of people are rarely people-sized so they look more impressive. @RomGothSam @softnadjah_png Purple with an eerie green aura... :) @BettyBlue168 Imagine having to explain to the President of the US how “counting” works. @LitteraCarolina Why would there be an assumption that they didn’t know what they were doing? @Helen_Fields It has to be Hiddleston. His smile is a joy to behold. @StrahdVonZ And there is a joy in thinking how someone else would deal with that, even if you abhor how they would’… @StrahdVonZ I knew that Luke was the hero, Han was the hero, Leia was the hero. But I never liked them. I wouldn’t… @StrahdVonZ It’s strange but putting it like that made me realise something.

Retweeted by Daniel Pietersen @Mind_Mouth_Soul I have to say I am not a fan of bants. (Autocorrect wanted to change that to babies which is also true) @puretemerity @HelenMcClory Legend of Zelda: A Link To The PastWhen you ask a genuine question online and a load of men give you joke responses, that’s called a bantswer. @BronteSchiltz The only thing I hate more than the thought of someone going hungry is that we need food banks. I sh… @slimyswampghost I imagine a weird, distant howling coming from the mouth-abdomen @BronteSchiltz I used to chin people coming into Tesco with our wants list. We’d get loads of massive packs of past… @BronteSchiltz This demonstrates one thing I learned from volunteering with a food bank; it’s not always food that’s needed. @LisboetaIngles @WritesTc @EdwardLorn @LisboetaIngles @WritesTc @EdwardLorn If I shaved now I think it would simply reveal bleached skull. @MillyKateH I really want to like it but I just can’t get on with the art style. @TGrayWrites Whatever next? @TGrayWrites Feelings, y’say?Fleets is literally the same as Instagram stories, isn’t it? I can’t get my head around the point of them, being now very old. @fkalexander The opening of Plainsong is like being washed clean by the ocean. @heksenhaus I think because it was probably their big record, at least in the UK, it gets dismissed as too poppy.

Sorry to hear you’re having a shitty time... :(Now we’re getting into the meat of the matter. The Drowning Man is just perfection. @SwanRiverPress Three Imaginary Boys very much has the feel of a band who were still finding their identity.

It’s... intense. @HelenMcClory What drugs, and how many, is the carving guy on?Those three little words that everyone longs to hear: Free spring rolls @BronteSchiltz @Hatingthelord The Haunting is one of my favourite horror films, one of my favourite films of any kind. @BronteSchiltz It’s early 2000s and looks it but I thought it was really good. @BronteSchiltz Have you watched Six Feet Under? We really liked that even though it’s basically Hill House (but well-written and funny). @BronteSchiltz Yeah, neither of us are very family orientated so when a plot goes “I’m mad at my sister for what sh…
