Re: What games have you played lately?

I miss raiding in WoW. I don't know what it's like now but it used to be like a full-time job trying to keep up with it. I don't think I would have the patience or drive for it now. Speaking of patience, I'm doing a "nuzlocke" run in a Pokemon game for the first time ever. If you're unfamiliar, it's...

Re: what countries have you visited?

I haven't travelled outside of the US... Not intentionally, it's just how things turned out. I moved around the country so often as a kid that I feel foreign no matter where I am. But that doesn't count. My mom and I have been flirting with the idea of driving to Canada around my 30th birthday just ...

Picking up my cat's ashes from the vet on Tuesday

Or "cremains."

I was doing pretty well emotionally until I got that call from the vet. It tore open my gut.

I know it will pass. But, fucking fuck me, this hurts.

I've applied to volunteer at local animal shelters instead of impulsively adopting another cat. I hope one of them has an opening.

In fact, I have everything contained. One of my engineer buddies said I seem like someone who isn't bothered by anything. And I laughed and laughed and laughed...

Can't take credit for it but this is now my favorite joke of all time:


Why did the nonbinary prospector move west in 1849?
Because there was gold in them/their hills.

Recently, as in a few months ago, West of Loathing. If you liked anything about Kingdom of Loathing, you might like the wild west version. It's silly and rewards your curiosity with absurdity. It's on Steam. Recently, as in a few weeks, Danganronpa and Higurashi visual novel games. Without going int...

Re: MGTOW: Rodent flavors

Any suggestions on marinades? Personally, a really fruity red wine with a pinch of tumeric and cilantro is best. This works really well if you intend to pan-fry the fillets after coating them in almond flour. What if one has the genetic condition where cilantro tastes exactly like soap? Does soap p...

Re: Coffee

Iced. I haven't tried cold brewing so I just make stupid-strong coffee and dump it over ice. It ends up being more like milk that thinks it's coffee. I'm not really a fan of the bean water, to be honest. I love the smell more than anything else about it. Tea, on the other hand, rocks my... various t...

Re: White Supremacists

The "marketplace of ideas" line is getting used a lot lately. I'm already uneasy about the camaraderie of white supremacists, nationalists, and MRAs within the alt-right. The normalization and rationalization of this shit is getting pushed so hard by their online presence. If people begin to agree t...

Re: what's the last movie you saw?

I enjoyed the new IT. That's not saying much. The movie theater here has reclining seats and a liquor license. I would enjoy just about anything. In any case, it was a tropefest of jumpscares with a few genuinely creepy moments. The actor who played the school bully was convincing and arguably more ...

Re: When do you buy handmade?

Impulse buys, mostly. There's a store in town called Ye Olde Goat. They have antiques as well but I go for the upcycled stuff and barn lumber. For something specific, I check if someone I know can take a commission. For instance, I wanted to try sleeping under a weighted blanket to help with anxiety...
