Spider!

pixie does not like spiders

13yo really hates spiders.  Even microscopic ones.  "Why do they have to move?" XD

The spider in question in this case was a tiny little thing just visible to the naked eye that was crawling along the esky lid as we were getting ready to go to a barbeque.

Common confusion

fun that happens when you're somewhat androgynous

Amusement while I was walking the dog. 

When you're somewhat androgynous, this is a thing that happens frequently.  I enjoy it way too much.

Especially when there are small children who are too young to realise some questions are apparently "inappropriate" and flat out ask me "are you a boy or a girl?" and I'll usually answer something along the lines of it either/or, doesn't really bother me, depends on the day, or if I'm feeling particularly playful, tell them I'm undecided that day and maybe they could suggest something.  It's even funnier when their parents are around as some of them are absolutely mortified and start apologising profusely (I have to find it funny because otherwise trying to make them understand that I literally don't care would be frustrating).

Scale issues

scale shenanigans

See what I have to put up with?

See what my poor family have to put up with? XD

I'm having scale issues in both senses of the word. For whatever reason, when importing a model from Blender, it's microscopic in 3dC.  What I did with Red was to just enlarge the model til it was big enough to work on, then send it back, where it was (strangely) way, way, way too big in Blender (I think he was close to 1km high before I resized him).  Then it didn't help that the vertices were apparently somehow too close together for the auto weight mapping so I had to enlarge it again just enough for that to work (because manually weight mapping rigs from the outset is the definition of tedious) and then shrink it agan.
