Thank you. Good to be back.  :)

Kind of dropped off the planet for a while (aside from ebay, AIM & the BBC news website I've hardly been anywhere else online). Moved out (again), was being bullied for months by someone at work & last week the parental units took the dogs, cats & washing machine to Derbyshire when they moved. It's a new year though :)[/i]

Dont know why anyone would buy them on Ebay when you can just go down to your local hardware store and buy them for much less, but it doesnt seem like too bad of an idea.  Just think, you can paint the bases whatever color you like.  :)

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

In the future, I think I will use a translation tool to go from English ---> [foreign language] ---> English and post all three descriptions in an auction.   :lol:

let's do it immediately... this is what you wrote in googl-italian:

In avvenire, penso che utilizzi un mezzo di traduzione per andare dall'inglese ---> [lingua straniera] ---> gli inglesi ed inviano tutte e tre le descrizioni in un'asta.

and this is its translation in googl-english again:

In happening, task that uses means of translation in order to go from English ---> [foreign language] ---> English and send to all and the three descriptions in an auction.

This is just nuts.   Why pay for something when you can just bring your dice with you to church and have them with you at communion . . . and baptized in the water fountain outside the restroom closest to the sanctuary?  

Wasn't there a day, maybe not so long ago that any self-respecting minister would castigate you just for owning "devil" dice?

sooooo...ok

if the character you were using the dice for, was CE in alignment, wouldnt that like be a conflict of interest or something?

:D

OK, that is really weird.. time to up my medication maybe. ;)

Can you pick what deity & alignment the ordained minister who blesses the dice is?

:D

Since the person did not express a preference for whom he would bless the dice I would guess that he is a true neutral... :P

Or maybe he is like the newer "prosperity ministrys" and is lawful greedy!  :twisted:
