Oh well. Other than that, I'm merely tired and have links to share for anyone who's bored:
Wonderputt - a golf game. Perhaps the cutest, loveliest, most brilliant golf game that ever came for free. There are frogs and submarines and torpedoes and cows being abducted by UFOs! Let your cursor hover over the ball and you get an arrow that you can spin around in whatever direction you want. Pull the cursor back and the arrow will widen and turn red - the wider and redder the arrow, the more force in your putt. After you've played the first 18 holes you unlock the "Wonder Mode", where you have to complete a rainbow by hitting every rainbow colored drop on the course. You can also win achievements as you go. Have fun!
Tanooky Tracks - Tanookys are mischievous little spirits that like to hide in objects that resemble themselves. This house is infested with them! Find the hiding spots of all twelve Tanookys and lure them out by either attracting them or repelling them. A hint book is provided, with riddles for each Tanooky, designed to give you a clue. (Here's a walkthrough if you get stuck).
Vision - one of the most gorgeous escape-the-room games ever created, and a well-made game, too. It's just stunning from start to finish. (Here's a walkthrough, just in case.)
This is just because...do I really need to explain myself? :
Adam Savage as Gollum sings "I will survive".
Oh, and have a kitten.
Now: I will draw.
- Yes, I am dieting. Me and hubby both.
- I think maybe I might not have arthritis after all.
- There's really no difference between Madagascar Vanilla and Regular Vanilla.
- There is, however, a difference between Regular Vanilla and Sugarfree Vanilla.
- *wants cupcakes*
- I got a webcam!
- I will start drawing again!
There. Out of steam now. Later. Have some Maru, to inspire:
We got something extraordinarily beautiful and new! I'll show pictures later, but for now, I just wanted to flail about it. It's new! And amazing! And gorgeous! It was there when I came home from work last night, hubby and his buddy had gone 50/50 on it and now it's ours!
Been working on fic. Yeah. This playlist with relaxing music has kept me from going mental. I recommend it to anyone who feels like they're going to pieces. Incredible visuals, too.
Sweetest game premise ever? Tiger and Monster had a fight and you must bring them back together by removing the blocks in the correct order.<33
( Fluffy love. )
I'm having trouble finding the artist, though.:(
Yesterday I went shopping and made a fool of myself. I was standing in line with the soon-to-be-mine sweater dress draped over my arm when I realized I no longer felt or saw the other shopping bags I'd been carrying around. So I got out of line and headed over to the dressing rooms, where I told the girl working that I had left my bags in the dressing room. She checked and nothing there. It was then that I realized that the bags were still draped over my arm underneath the sweater. Blush blush.
But I got three black work sweaters and one grey sweater dress for $54,80 total! Does that make up for it?
Yeah hi, this whole "life" thing is a bit uninspiring right now. The Roily household has cleaning to do this week, because hubby's dad will be staying with us for hubby's grandpa's funeral on Saturday. So I'm sitting here, wasting precious hours on the Internet when I should tackle the growing debris in the kitchen.
I feel like I'm never getting enough sleep, I'm excited for Christmas, I kind of loathe Halloween, I feel pretty useless and lame in general, my houseplants look pretty bad and it's twice now in a month that I've almost gotten a write-up at work due to my till being $40 over or so, only for it to be revealed at last minute that it was the new assistant manager's fault, for printing the till summary before I'd completed the last transaction or forgetting to post-void a botched transaction. Which I'm not really mad at her for, because she's new and super nice and I like her a lot, but GAH.
My till's almost never off, I'll have you know, and I've only gotten one write-up in the close-to-three-years I've been working there and that was the very first week. I'll also have you know that I hate cashiering with a passion, because my head is not designed for fast math and people=stress to me. I mean, some recovery shifts are absolutely horrible, but I'll still take that kind of stress any day over cashiering on a slow day.
Now that that's off my chest, I should probably go do something useful.
Oh yes! And I just watched Return of the King for the first time in ages. Eomeeeeerrrr!! I don't know about Karl Urban's acting, frankly. A little too much forehead wrinkle for me. But ahhh, what a visual. What EYES.
Return of the King is special to me, because it was the only movie I and my then-fiancee-now-hubby saw with my parents (they split up six months before we got married) in the theater. My mom made an everlasting impression by falling asleep during the huge battle scene. Her thing is more detective novels, really.
Today's original at work was a tall, jovial guy who called me "one of his favorite employees" (never seen him before in my life) and just as I thought he was flirting with me, he started going on about the locksmith company he works for, proudly advertising their skills and policies, going into great detail with great passion. He gave me a card, said "I'm sure we'll see each other around a lot" and then left.
Turned out he'd been doing the same with my manager, offering her a 10% discount just for coming in, and had also butted in on a conversation between two of my guy co-workers, comparing their conversation to the ones he'd have with the guys at his job ("We just walk up and slap each other on the back and fart!").
So. Next time I lock myself out of the house, I'll know who to call. Someone else.
