I HAVE DECIDED A THING

The thing I have decided is that I am going to recreate WWII. In miniature. In my living room.

I'm not sure how it will turn out, but I'm anxious to see how it goes down, as I intend to live the remainder of my life in concord with the result.

This is the worst Monday ever.

Me too, but I have no say in the matter. What happens, happens.

My system will be a unique one of my own design. It will include using hundreds of plastic soldiers, marijuana, flipping coins, and rocks. Also HeroClix figures will be involved. Dr. Sivana will fight on the side of the Axis.

1. Sure, why not.

2. As many as you can carry.

He can fight the Big Red One instead of the Big Red Cheese!

There seems to be a lot of that going around.

I would think that killing 6 million mini Jews would get you in trouble, somehow. I don't know what laws that would break.

Hopefully it won't come to that, but I intend to use six AD&D lead figurines of dwarves, each of which will represent one million Jews.

I'm not here to tell you what to do, but if you whirl around and step on a lead dwarf, that would hurt a fuckton.

With...with marshmallows? Will there be marshmallows?

Mini marshmallows?

It is possible that I will use marshmallows in re-enactments of naval battles. I haven't decided yet.

Is it going to be like the remake of Psycho, where you carefully recreate each scene for no discernible reason? Or more like a Deist view of WWII, where you set up the initial conditions and let them play out, to see whether the outcome is fixed in accordance with a classical view of the world, or could vary in agreement with the currently popular "quantum" theory? Also, I think you should use Peeps.

It will be like the second thing you said.

Basically, I intend to make parts of my living room resemble the world in 1939. Then I will strew around bits of things that will resemble angry people. Then I will whirl about like a dervish, randomly determining numbers and simulating weather conditions. On occasion, superheroes will swoop down, and there will be snacks. When it's over, only God knows what will become of the world.

Why do I have the feeling the Marshall Plan will involve getting zooted?

Because the man must remain true to history.

My father recreated the Civil War on his window sill for a few years. Until the dog chewed up several of the soldiers, and later my dad got into model trains.

Marshmallow Fight? We just got Marshmallow guns as a present from husband's sister.

That is a great story. And then he humped a tree.

I am sad & distressed to read that you've had a Worst Monday Ever.
When I'm down I eat ice cream & ignore the dishes. You recreate Operation Sealion with a sock. We're from different worlds.

Did you know that the president of Poland when Germany invaded was named Ignacy Moscicki, and that the commander-in-chief of their armed forces was named Edward Rydz-Smigly? And that Moscicki and Rydz-Smigly sort of rhyme? That's the kind of thing you can't learn eating ice cream. Unless it's some kind of ice cream that has WWII trivia on the carton.

I can't wait to see how the battle for North Africa turns out.

I predict that it will not be historically accurate.

Now, the important question - does Boba Fett fight for the Axis or the Allies? On the one hand, the Axis are the bad guys and in the early stages appear to have the game locked up, and Boba likes to be on the winning team. On the other hand, America is the richest competing nation and could pay him the most, and Boba needs to get paid, yo.
