Actually maybe no tinychat party b/c my interwebs just crapped out :(
maybe Twilight Princess tinychat party later tonight?
Enchanted Palace takes significantly less time to play than it did when I was six years old and a dumbass.
replacement part came in the post today and it works ENCHANTED PALACE IS GOOOOO
hahahaha i got a full refund for the broken-ass Enchanted Palace game, including the shipping and handling. the seller was kind of rude though, they asked me to not bid on any of their other items. no worries there, sweetheart.
IT’S BROKEN. ENCHANTED PALACE IS BROKEN. WHEN YOU TURN IT ON, IT FREEZES. IT IS ANNOYING AS HELL AND COMPLETELY UNPLAYABLE WITHOUT THE ELECTRONICS. WHAT AM I GOING TO DOOOOOOOO. i contacted the seller to see what’s up. they obviously didn’t test it before they sent it since this is quite clearly NOT “good used working condition.” since it’s BROKEN and all. ...

Mom: What should I get for your brother for his face?
Me: ...a paper bag?

the Admiral is on deck!
Me: How does your cabin boy verse go?
Matt: A salty wench was he.
Me: A WENCH? How is he a wench?
Matt: I meant wretch.
Me: You said wench.
Matt: Sorry. Wrong ship.
A thing that I often wonder about is this: does being unattractive mean that I will be more or less prepared for dealing with relationships? I’ve been trying to think about this logically. Here are a couple of points I will make (as I am a straight cisfemale I am assuming a point of view and gendered pronouns concurrent with that orientation). Let us assume, rightfully so, that there are...
Mom: Come sit with me and watch this! It's a new Japanese episode of Iron Chef!
Me: I love Japan, it's so weird.
TV: "If memory serves me right, Christmas is just around the corner..."
Me: Christmas? It's July. I'm leaving.
Mom: No, it's new! Sit and watch it with me!
Me: Clearly you and I have different definitions of the word "new."
a very convincing argument
Mom: Can I ask that you wake up tomorrow and help me do a little straightening up around the house?
Me: You can ask.
Me: I'll think about it overnight. I'll put it on my list of things to consider.
Mom: There will be lobster in your future if you do.
Me: Oh. The strength of your case has just increased. We'll discuss this and get back to you.

paraphrased, as usual.
Me: Did you go snorkling?
Me: Did you see anything? More importantly, did anything see you?
Matt: Yeah, some fish. They bumped into me. I took a picture.
Me: I hope you were careful. When you gaze too long into the fish, the fish gaze also into you.
Me: Nietzsche said that.
how i gamble (aka reply button = FAIL) →
I actually really wanna play some Blackjack. I’m pretty good at poker, but I’m sure I would lose everything in a matter of seconds since I’d be drunk and thus impatient and would bet everything on a pair of 3s or something, knowing me. Also I’ll probably hit a few slots. that’s what she said But… i had really good advice but Reply ATE IT. so here’s what i did this one time i...
Enchanted Palace! →
this was a game i got for christmas one year and i fricking loved it to death. i thought the technology was SO COOL and when the little rubber band that worked as the spring to pop open the windows and knock the evil witch off the platform broke i was DEVASTATED because HOW COULD I MAKE THE TECHNOLOGY WORK WITHOUT THE RUBBER BAND!?!?
i finally found out what all the construction at my local library was for. they built a YA room. an entire beautiful gorgeous pair of rooms entirely for holding YA books and school reading books and SAT prep books and how-to-be-a-teenager books. i walked in, got really excited, and asked them where they’d been TEN YEARS AGO when i’d needed it. (then i felt old. but fuck it i’m...
Oh man this book continues to be GOOD. They curse like real teenagers, and when the heroine felt uncomfortable w/ the hero she got the fuck out and only changed her mind because legit character/plot motivation emerged! Some of the paranormal romance tropes are a bit cliche but they’re tolerable; it’s like Twilight but if Bella wasn’t a complete idiot and a prat and if Edward was...
Mom: "There are probably a couple little embers still going out there."
Me: "Oh so you guys are going outside? Are you gonna go skinny dipping?"
Mom: "We might!"
Me: "Okay, well then can you let me know in advance so I don't go outside or turn on the lights or look out the window or eat something by accident?"
so i’m reading this YA book called Jekel Loves Hyde and it’s a little silly but i’ll go with it, because even though it’s paranormal romance it’s smartish and the characters have motivation and so forth unlike SOME paranormal romances i know (ps while i was in the bookstore pretty much every other YA book was vampires GAG. i like dark fantasy as much as the next girl...
it’s sad because it’s true.
