A Few Cool Things

EBear maticquala posted a link to this story this morning by Catherynne M.Valente. It's just the first chapter, but with a planned release for future chapters much like Shadow Unit. I've been doing a lot of fairytale reading for an upcoming Lit. Angels podcast and I'm really taken with this story so far. Maybe it's because I have fairytales on the brain, or maybe it's because it's just well written. Either way, I think more people should be checking it out. (For some reason I just tried to write "should" as "schould" about four times before my hand would let me leave out the 'c'.)

A Softer World has really had some good comics lately - like today's. It's vaguely reminiscent of the idea behind fake bandoms, and I like it. Makes me want to keep a fake diary for my fake band. And the one from yesterday, or Saturday not sure which reminds me of the dead show: Jericho & it makes me laugh. (Matt didn't get it.) Also, if you're reading ASW, make sure to hover over the comic.

I got invited to the first Omaha Girls in Tech event, but it's on a Monday, so there's no way I can make it. Which sucks. The girls up there are cool, and I really want there to be a GiT nearby I can hang with.

Matt and I are giving up WoW. We've not been playing much, and I finally stepped down as an officer from the Daughters of the Horde on Bronzebeard. It's a great guild, but I don't think it was for me anymore, since I never cared about being high level or raiding or specs or any of that. I just wanted to play, and since I'm not doing much of that anymore, it seemed a good time to go. When Matt has a job again, maybe we'll try out Warhammer Online again. Or maybe we'll just invest in a Wireless router for the Xbox so it can be connected all of the time.

Oh, and back to fairytales - check out this game I'm excited about. It's called Fairytale Fights, and it's about fairytale characters like Snow White or Little Red Riding Hood chopping up cute things. :) I got to see some gameplay at E3, and it's both adorable and disturbing, and I can't wait to play it.

Yay for the giving up of WoW! I guess...

Once I get my new video card installed I'll be able to run WAR properly instead of touring Candyland, so maybe we can all run around the Empire together. No rush, though. :D

Played much Sims 3 yet?

yay! Adventures in the Empire!!

I've been playing a bunch of Sims 3, although not as much as I'd like. I like it so far, although I'm getting annoyed at some of the traits.
