Keep calm and game on

I am not a gamer. My hand / eye coordination when it comes to video games… to say it’s “poor” – hello understatement. My style is button mash until death. ūüėÄ Puzzle games? Now I could do those all night. And have been known to. Frequently and repeatedly. Now this game room that doubles as a mini home theater, that’s totally my style. Hate This has made this¬†game room set for Geeks ‘n’ Nerds that I pulled out of the boxes as soon as I saw the ad. And then proceeded to geek out over all the movie titles SL-ized style.

We must take adventures in order to know where we truly belong

Summertime is definitely here. The sun stays up longer, the heat is creeping¬†in, tourists are taking over… and getting away from it all sounds like a great idea. When I was young, we camped every summer. Sometimes it would be at Girl Scout camp (yes, I was a girl scout) and other times it would be with my family at campsites all up and down the California coast.

A Single Dream is More Powerful than a Thousand Realities

There’s a new event kicking off this Friday (February 20th) called Shinny Shabby and it looks like it’s going to be awesome. It’s a “flea market for new and weathered things” ¬†as described on the event website. And from the preview pics I’ve seen on Flickr, it looks like I will be buying the place out.

This is Keke’s offering for the event and it is super cute and lovely. Themed after the story of The Princess and the Pea, Kean has made an adorable bedroom set. Just take a look:

Kissing the Old Year Out, Kissing the New Year In

One minute to midnight
One minute to go
One minute to say good-bye
Before we say hello

Let’s start the new year right
Twelve o’clock tonight
When they dim the light
Let’s begin

Kissing the old year out
Kissing the new year in

I Became Insane with Long Intervals of Horrible Sanity

MACABRE

[muhkah-bruh, –kahb, –kah-ber]
adjective
1. gruesome and horrifying; ghastly; horrible.
2. of, pertaining to, dealing with, or representing death, especially its grimmer or uglier aspect.
3. of or suggestive of the allegorical dance of death.

This month’s Uber theme is macabre. I’m not sure what it says about me that the first idea I had for a picture after shopping there was a scene of me standing over a dead body, but there you have it. For Halloween this year I had a friend host a murder mystery night/scavenger hunt and I helped with writing some of the trickier clues and story line. Maybe that’s where the inspiration for this picture came from? Because¬† I swear I have no true homicidal urges or tendencies. Anyways…
