  • Well, I think I'll just go hide out in the Slime Rancher world for a while. My boyfriend gets scheduled for COVID testing on Monday...

    Ooooh, that's tonight! :D
    I'm glad it was negative.

    Well, where I'm at it's still Sunday night. But yeah. The negative is nice and all, but the 10 days from onset of symptoms is standard isolation time here, so basically they erred on the side of caution and assumed it was a false negative, without saying that.

    It still stinks. I had to be off work 3x for testing and it usually last about a week before getting cleared (longer if positive though). That's money out the door. Hopefully, the time off doesn't effect him too much.
    Chilling out while toodling around someone's painstaking Minecraft recreation of Disneyland. It is mind-boggling and probably as close as I'll ever be to going.

    That's really what I remember the most about Disneyland.... The long lines for everything. Where it was perfectly normal to wait a hour for a ride. Followed closely by just how expensive everything was for even the most mundane of things. You have to be one incredibly large Disney fan to want to suffer that awful place. 0/10 they'd better pay me next time. ;)

    That may well be the best part of this. No lines. No crowds. Just look around at your own pace. Ride a ride. Find a pin to collect. Come back another day to see what else you can see. It's just chill.

    But with 10 hours of Let it Go, there are no lines, crowds (at least you'd hope not), you can watch at your own pace. It's mostly definitely a long ride... And you'll have plenty of time to draw a pin to remember it by. Plus you can watch it another day and see what you see. It's pretty much just chill. ;)

    Starting work on some stuff for the community. Hopefully it will be fun, and useful to somebody.

    Bit of a long-term project, but I hope to get some initial stuff done and shared soon.

    Nice job, Taarna! :)
    The neighbourhood cats brought me a kitten today. They sat him on the step and semi-circled him. He's adorable, but now I gotta find somewhere for him.

    Here's to the l'il cutie getting a good home! I kinda wonder if your avatar is that kitten?

    @RachelTheSeeker While that one is pretty darn cute and kitten-sized, that one's actually a fully grown cat. She's also a Siamese cat disguised as a tabby and has the cattitude to prove it!
    Me: Yes! I do have white perler beads! I can make some cute stuff!
    Life: Oh yeah? Well, how about your phone is now a battery-bloated fire hazard?

    Anyone who doubts their game creation skills, know this... without trying to do so, you can not possibly make a worse game than Wand of Gamelon. You'll be fine.
    No, I did not want a migraine for Christmas. >.<

    I mean they originated in Mexico, and our immigration from there is pretty out of control. So famous is probably the wrong word, they're just insanely common.

    @taarna23 Yeah, I feel your pain. I really only eat out at specific places with all natural foods, and eat the same at home. As a result most typical American food makes me feel ill. Too many weird chemicals. :kaoswt:

    @ImaginaryVillain Add gluten-free to that! It's a diet from... well... you can guess. >.>
    ImaginaryVillain
    ImaginaryVillain
    Good times. I did Keto for a bit, which was also gluten-free, though I'm not gluten intolerant or anything. It's just super hard to find gluten based things that are extremely low carbs. And with only being able to have around 36 carbs a day.... Yeah, very limiting. Though it worked pretty well until the pandemic made it impossible to get the stuff for a few months. Haven't gotten back on it yet.
    Christmas present from our city: water use restrictions.
    ...but I need a shower. T_T

    Don't they announce it beforehand? :0 Usually when they cut off water supplies temporarily they let us know so we can store water in buckets. Bucket water is much colder than running tap water but it has to do ^^;

    No water? what are you going to do? sadly, nothing I can do for you though...
    taarna23
    taarna23
    Well, we have water, but we are expected to use as little as possible until further notice.
    Welp, I just turned an RPG Maker map into a board game using a couple events because why not?
    I've been avoiding things I normally do again, like being here. It's not good for me, and I end up abdicating my responsibilities. Sorry everyone! I'm here again.

    I must be the odd ball out, this is what I do for fun. This is basically how I destress. I honestly don't care if nothing ever comes out of my game, and that's because I've had a blast the entire time. I'm as excited as the day I started, heck probably more. :LZSexcite:

    Oh, I've still been working on my game, and a project to chronicle everything I can in an MMO (because I'm clearly not a sane person). I just haven't been present here again.

    I think I've created a monster.
    ...and I love it. <3

    XD Well, it's just a test map. I needed to have everything on it to see how it looks. In this case, the stairs need some colour adjustments. But, I call it a monstrosity because there are MZ tiles, MV tiles, MV Trinity tiles, XP tiles and Ancient Dungeons tiles. >.>

    Wow they fit pretty well with each other. I didn't think they're from such varying sources :0

    You know a long time ago, before the PVG graphics switch... I actually had a very similar starting room for the dungeon. A block with stairs going down in the center of the room and the four exits, along with random crap everywhere..... The only difference was the I expected the player to make the floor. :kaoback:
    Well, the local collections agency is hiring... bleh. I'm not rude enough for them to hire me. Even the people they collect FOR don't like dealing with them. >.>
    taarna23
    taarna23
    Well, this particular agency, I've been hung up on... by their manager... for asking their hours. She gave them to me, and then promptly hung up. The next time I had the misfortune of speaking to her, she informed me it was because I had hung up on her previously, after informing her that I am at work and I will not discuss this while I am at work, on the clock.

    Yeah, not a pleasant experience. You have no idea why a person hasn't paid their bill, like their spouse or husband died, or they contracted COVID, and on top of that, who wants to pay a bill to someone representing a company that acts likes that. It is a super stressful job, and not many people can do it.

    What kind of individual thinks such catty behaviour is acceptable.
    You know, I've never understood how to use those sideways-facing stairs present in some tilesets... I tend to try to ignore them. o.o
    Sometimes when I'm working on stuff that goes really well I just feel like a mad scientist... It's alive! IT'S ALIVE!!! *mad cackles*

    Exactly 3am me was up so late last night he decided the parallax map wasn't solid, and made part of it swirl into a portal. :kaoback: 3pm me was annoyed that 3am me didn't center the map so the portal he made is off. :LZSskeptic:

    @PixeLockeT Have you seen my avatar? I even have a cat to pet while cackling madly! Well, more than one, actually...
    Took a break from my project for a few days to mull over some issues and the solution had been staring me right in the face. Onward!
    Oh, boy. It's starting. The first snows of the expected big blizzard. Hide!

    Fortunately we don't get those down here. The pineapples in my backyard would freeze if we did. I would too. I have like 3 long sleeved shirts in the back of my closet and a windbreaker I keep in the car mostly so I won't get wet in rainy season which is almost over. Although I did wear the windbreaker the other day as we had a cold front and it got down to 58.

    It's been quite a while since I read the books. Did he ever get around to finishing that other one?
