I was going to post photos, but then I packed my camera and camera cord. I'm going to be in Kentucky for a while, dunno how long, yet. But I'll get to see Derek and go into EST for the first time ever. I will probably miss PST. It's a good timezone.

And since I'm not taking my computer, I figured I'd post about game stuff, since who knows when I'll do that again.

Minecraft, a temple, and a new texture packCollapse )

I've been putting off posting this; it's a horrible way to close the year and to open the new one, too.

We had Oy put to sleep right after Christmas. I miss him terribly. I miss having rats. This place is so quiet, and now that Derek is back in Kentucky again, I have no one to snuggle with at all.

I'll post the last of the photos of Oy sometime, although it seems like a depressing thing to sort through right now.

He was such a good rat. One of the best rats ever.

Derek is going to be in Kentucky for several months. I am not. He'll be getting more money, so it's worth it. But I might go crazy. If I join a cult, someone save me.

I got a Kindle for my birthday. It is an amazing device. It doesn't replace books (especially because I got a lot of awesome ones for my birthday), but it is really fantastic. Reading on it is like magic.

I knitted a case for it, but I won't be using it; the yarn gets caught at the edge of the Kindle's screen and that is sad. I'll turn it into a regular-book case instead, for car trips and such, because it's cute. Someday I should upload things to ravelry.

Instead, I got a leather envelope from Saddleback Leather Co., and I just have to say, if you need anything made of leather, try there first. Amazing quality. Really perfect stitching, sturdy, durable, and it's great leather. I'm going to be adding a bunch of stuff from there to my Amazon wishlist for the enter-non-Amazon-items sweepstakes they have going for a bit yet. It's pricey, but it's sooooo worth it. Also, they have a great sense of humor. My case came with a note that had a bit about how when I die people will fight over this. Because it's just that good.

Okay. This is the stupidest creepy thing that has ever happened to me. It happened about 1 AM on Saturday.

I'm lying in bed next to Derek, reading (on my brand new Kindle!), pretty normal for me--I'm a night owl and all.

The apartment is completely silent. All the neighbors are asleep, my husband is completely passed out, nothing is happening, everything is normal.

Abruptly, with no warning, from the other side of the room, from the darkness of my closet, I hear...

...a fart.

I put down my Kindle and think, "What the fuck. What the fuck did I just hear. I don't keep a whoopee cushion in there. What the hell. Do I just ignore it? Ignore the fart? Do I go look in there?"

And then my brain starts creating scenarios. It sounded organic! It was a fart! Everyone knows that sound! All I have over there is clothing! And pillows! A fart?!

And I'm envisioning headlines. "Couple finds home invader because of fart." "Gas smells of doom for burglar." All I really know for certain is that if I get killed by someone who farted in my room, I will have to hope there is no afterlife, because how do you get over that shame.

So I poke Derek and say, "Er, ah, um, you're gonna think I'm crazy, uhhh, but... I heard... er, I heard a fart. Over there." And I wave my hand in that direction. All the while keeping an eye on it just in case, you know, the mystery intruder is listening to me explain how I heard his flatulence.

Derek blinks at me and blinks at me and squints at me and says, "Muh."

I explain further how I am not, in fact, crazy, and he said later that he thought it was ridiculous, but then also started to think, "Well, what if there IS something?" so we get up and I get him a flashlight and he looks in the depths of the closet. And we find nothing. Nothing.

Here is a post. I will put pictures in it. They will almost all be of jewelry.

Wherein you can find mostly frogs and at least one zombieCollapse )

I have never wanted to go to a convention so badly. This is also the first time I've ever been jealous of someone else's awesome wedding. I asked Derek if we could have a renewal yet, but he is not so sure.

(Not because he wouldn't want to go see Minister Bruce Campbell--he would--but because, you know, that other stuff. The green papery stuff.)

Here are more screenshots! Really, my life is all math and Minecraft.

Well, Minecraft and Free RealmsCollapse )

Free Realms is coming to Mac soon! Sooooooon.

Oh yeah, and just for a sense of "wow," a picture of my whole world.

It's so biiiigCollapse )
So I have had some free time lately. So I accidentally got addicted to a game. I know, you're all shocked. I never do that! (Shut up.)

But I've heard a ton about Minecraft. I just thought it sounded lame. Turns out, it's lame in a way that is awesome.

Three shotsCollapse )

Watch this if you want to find out what the game is really like. Although this Penny Arcade strip (and the following day's) really sum it up.

At least watch The Chicken Song. Watch it!

I have been inexplicably craving donuts. This is inexplicable because I have hated donuts for decades.

I told Derek about my bizarre craving, and yesterday he spontaneously brought home a donut for me.

It was delicious.

(I'm only posting this so it will get back to my dad, who has previously complained that I can't possibly be related to him if I hate donuts. Blood will out! It just takes a while sometimes.)
