Wargames Show Lists!

While wandering around the blogs this week I've come across a lot of people doing lists for Salute 2012 of what they're buying and visiting, a damn good idea and many years and shows later I decided I need to do this, there's been a lot of times where I'm standing at a stand and going "I needed something here???????"

Vallejo paints I can never think of and end up with 17 desert yellows stuck in a drawer!
Static grass that I can't remember who I bought off and now covers most of my bases, so this year I brought a sample?
Bathe!!!!, so we can't be accused and collecting a prize and meeting fellow bloggers and gamers.....
Smile more I've been told......

So here we go but I think it may have strayed from the path..........

  1. Fran, I'm worried about the bloodstains on the list. That and the "Ingredients for food on Sunday". I mean, I know you can get a lot at Salute, but come on .... finding a rack of lamb might be a bit hard! :) See you tomorrow, mate!

  17. Which do you think will happen first meeting Pamela or Ray buying lunch?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Meeting Pamela has a higher chance of success!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Good luck with the one about getting Ray to buy lunch.

  20. Awesome list! lol


    Here's a mantra for you to keep on top of things "Turn that frown upside down!" ... just keep saying it to yourself. Say it ten times in your head if Ray winds you up too!

    Have a great day!

  21. Go and have a bath, practice smiling, think about meeting Pam and have a bloody good time this weekend.

  22. Lists can be a life saver. I am awful for remembering what paints I need or don't need, and yet I still never make a list before I go to pick them up. Never come home with everything I need.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Great list, Fran. I hope you have a great time at Salute.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sod the smiling mate. I laugh a lot, but don't smile much. People who smile all the time look simple!

    I don't bother with lists anymore because when I remember to take them and don't lose them, I never stick to them.

    However, my personal hygiene is unquestionable as long as I don't pee on my fingers . . . .

  25. that list wouldn't be complete without Pam Anderson! I like how you included a grocery list for Sunday! Paints, varnishes, 15mm buildings, 15mm zombies, food for sunday?

  26. Hahaa cute one. My kid's shopping list also looks like this, train,train,train, train, don't let mommy enter into shoes aisle, daddy into electronics section, Mia,Tom B'day and much more.
    So darn cute, and you expect me to call you badass, may be on opposite day or in opposite world.

  33. "Lists are good, if you can remember where you put them, and then take them!" This is a quote from an old curmudgeon from Southern California.

  36. Pamela Anderson is always a good goal lol

    ReplyDelete
  37. What are the chances that you actually stick to that list? (besides Ray paying you lunch)?

    ReplyDelete
  38. You've really sweated blood over that list Fran. Some of the list may be unlikely to happen (Ray buying lunch) but stranger things can happen.

    Have a great day tomorrow!

    ReplyDelete
  39. A very fine list, Fran. I´m sure you are going to buy all those items... and a lot more!

    Best regards and a very good day tomorrow.

  40. I have to right everything down now, or I forget. I also have a word doc that is something like 50 pages long listing all my model kits and some notes on whether I have paint and decals for them. Absurd maybe, but it does prevent buying duplicates!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Very cool cant wait to see what it looks like

    ReplyDelete
  42. Have a great day chap and maybe Pamela is there

    ReplyDelete
