YOU DON'T SAY?!

That wily ol' buzzard.

Shortpacked!: The morphin' that time forgot.

WHAAAA? Ugly Hill is ended?! Southworth, you will answer for this!

Hey, everybody! Welcome to Episode 391 of David Ruins Things With Paint!

I had a Universe Vector Prime I didn't want, just sittin' around, and so I thought, hey, I don't want that $20 back for returning him. Let's get painturous.

pain⋅tur⋅ous  [peyn-jer-uhs, peynj-ruhs]
–adjective
1. painting something despite lack of skill, knowing full well the exercise will end in disaster
2. oh god what the hell jesus lord why would you do that

Origin:
2009; portmanteau of "painting" and "dangerous"

Anyway, I painted Vector Prime's Mini-Con Safeguard as Emirate Xaaron. (My idea was that I would paint Vector Prime as the Last Autobot, which I have also already attempted and failed today, and Xaaron would be his partner.)

Woof! Man, gold paint always looks bad. But Xaaron's gold, so whatcha gonna do. I even tried like thirty different kinds of brown or yellow or weirdish tan, and wiped them all off as I decided I hated them. So under that glittery gold is the remnants of the strata of a wasted evening.

Let's just say that at one point tonight, my creation was in the dumpster outside. I rescued it later when I had a change of heart. I may try the Last Autobot again at another time, who knows. It'll be fun, in a sort of masochistic way.

Oh! I got a number of Roomies! book 1 preorders today, and it may have gotten us to the golden 200. I haven't tallied them up proper, but I thought I should mention that! So the book's gonna be made.
