NOT Paint Table Saturday

There are times when it's a good thing to acknowledge the parts of you that are ordinarily kept locked in a dark cupboard where they cannot distract you from functioning in the real world. *

This afternoon I did exactly that. For about 4.5 hours. Apparently.

By way of explanation let me write a short piece of pseudo-math so you understand...

Still not clear? OK, let me spell it out. I was updating my wargame book collection to account for some new arrivals and noticed one of the cover images was pretty ordinary. Colours were off, the pic was blurry, ragged edges, etc. etc. Clearly that wouldn't do so I fixed it.

Then I thought I'd better check the cover next to that one. Guess what? Rubbish! OK, that's fixed now. You can guess where this is going...

Anyway, safe to say I've not painted anything I was intending to paint. But at least IT can be put back in the cupboard for a while now and I can go back to playing nice with the general public. Mostly.

* Well that's my excuse anyway.



  1. It's not OCD, it's CDO, alphabetical the way it's supposed to be

    1. I had a bet with myself that would be the first comment. Thanks for not letting me down Martin.

    2. Shame to let you down old boy

  2. Are you sure it's not COD? Definitely something fishy about such behaviour ;)

  3. Well I'm just glad it's not just me! Gifted an entire day to do with as I pleased, I managed to flit from one thing to another and singularly avoided competing everything - except carving the blasted pumpkin!

  4. It could be worse... it could be CDO... at least that is in the right order

  5. There are worse ways to lose painting time!

  6. It happens to us all mate. Goodreads is where I seem to loose large blocks of time cataloguing all the books I've read and finding new ones to acquire

  7. Been there, and done that! Just think of it like a search for perfection - Holy Grails ... that kind of thing. Not at all obsessive. Oh no, never ... ;)

  8. 'Correcting' book covers?? Archival heresy aside, that is just bonkers Millsy. (I had to stop myself from writing, 'Buddy, you need a hobby.') ;)
