With temperatures barely above the single digits currently, my cats have found a way to stay warm:
Cat pile ^_^
The little gray one in the center is Slander, our newest addition.
Rikki made our guild it’s own official blog. We had a website/message board… but we really didn’t use it. Hopefully we won’t have that problem with this.
Right, fellow Dreamers…?
I feel all spiffy having my site listed in the blogroll. I should probably make myself a blogroll button sometime.
Edit: Here’s the world’s least interesting blogroll button:
I would have made it more creative, but I couldn’t find a way to combine “creative” with “legible”.
I forgot to add this in from the weekend. I was fixing dinner on Sunday. I look through the kitchen window and what should be back? Yup- the neighbors cows. A lone calf this time.
We had worked out which neighbor it is that lost him… it’s the guy who’s property is out back from us. So the cows are getting through the barbed wire fence, cutting through the woods and wandering in to our yard. This is the Google Maps overview of our property. Note the scale compared to the white square that’s my house.
So they are walking all of that way, just to get to our obviously tastier grass.
EDIT: (1:45 Central time zone) What the heck? The cow is back again. I think we need to check our fence again o_O;;
Meh. I was hoping to play with more hybrid seeds, but once again the feature has been temporarily stopped.
Until they return, the next event, or I can think of something else to talk about, here’s some pics of Jansen’s house (which I never posted).
The Old Windmill
What’s really cute about it is that the blades of the windmill are animated so that they slowly spin.
It’s a real bachelor’s pad though, with hardly any furniture. Hopefully I can get some more when the next event rolls around. Here’s the two rooms (a living room and a bed room).
I took these early this morning, but haven’t got a chance to post them until now. The scores should be relatively the same since, especially since the MegaPig and other party pets weren’t around any more.
Who won each day (individual players):
and the overall scores for individual players. As you can see, Bless apparently never sleeps. XD
And on the guild side, here’s which guild won on a day to day basis
and, lastly, the final total of the points for the guilds.
Last night was the finale of the HKO birthday events. I stayed through the main part of the party and took a few quick screen shots.
As with the previous party, people were led to the SnowyLands to go cheer the MegaPig through 5 full cycles. But, since it was the transfer between maps that made me disconnect and miss everything last time, I stayed in London (no matter how many times the GM hinted otherwise). When finished there, we got a cut scene of the sad, sad pigs. This cued the formation of special, named MegaPigs:
Hitting all 5 caused a cut scene of the happy, happy pigs. And that was it.
The GM’s wrangled us in to a group photo. Here’s the one I took:
There were GM games being arranged, but I decided to log off and hand the computer back to my hubby instead.
Finally, here’s the true heroine of this whole event
Mimmy. That’s right- Mimmy. It’s her birthday too, but she goes ahead and lets her sister take all of the credit. C’mon Kitty! How about a little thank you for the sister that helped wake your fluffy tail up?
Coming from a discussion last night of someone who couldn’t remember the site’s name:
NationStates (click “create a nation” to get started).
As well, here’s my two nations-
The nice but heavily taxed Tacenda (hey, those free services cost money).
The nice because Theadora says so Orthopraxos.
For comparison to my ruling style- Anaxphonia.
I forgot to put this up earlier. As indicated by my short comment on the autobuilder, I got a pair of new houses: the Wizard Tower for my main account and The Old Windmill for my alt. Here’s some pictures of the tower.
Room 1- living room
Room 2- kitchen to be? (I’d really like to make this some sort of kitchen/dining room, but there’s no appliances in the IM. So right now, it’s not much of anything).
Room 3- bedroom
Almost all of my furniture is the stuff you can make in-game, so it’s a little boring. Hopefully when Tokyo opens there will be new furniture to make.
So, going back to the random gray kitty that showed up on our doorstep, my hubby has picked out a name for him. To explain, we had originally a pure black cat named Sabotage. When someone randomly handed us a tabby cat kitten, we turned it to a theme and named him Subversion. Thus the new kitty’s name is… Slander. Mainly because he showed up flinging junk around but also because he was named on election night.
I would take a picture of him, but he’s still covered in snot and eye goop (ew). The poor thing, we think he might have some sort of seasonal allergies or something.
