It makes me sad that Lego never got the license. Before it was Mega Blocks, whose sets were awful, and now it's Ionix. The Ionix sets don't look bad but I have no idea how good the blocks actually are. Some buildings set companies are better than others, but none match the quality and attention to uniformity like Lego… » 12/16/14 1:45pm Tuesday 1:45pm

I run into a similar if not exactly identical situation. My online presence is fairly gender neutral (I rarely post photos of myself, my logo is a duck, and I don't use my first name, just my first initial and last name) so everyone assumes I'm a dude and are shocked to learn otherwise. Never mind the fact that I… » 12/16/14 1:11pm Tuesday 1:11pm

I hurt my back over the weekend but still managed to finish my Secret San-tay stuff. I plan on sending it later this week. This week also marks two years since I started my webcomic Midnight Menagerie » 12/08/14 1:59pm 12/08/14 1:59pm

I have been playing a butt-ton of Theatrhythm Curtain Call and now I realize I would give my right arm for a World Ends with You Theaterhythm. Also just got my secret santa gift which means I need to do double time to finish the one I have for my person. This week has been far too stressful though. I'm behind in… » 12/05/14 2:34pm 12/05/14 2:34pm

Finally got some animes I've been wanting for a while with some Cyber Monday savings and later this week I'm going to be doing some guest contributions to a local blog, so that's pretty cool. Weekend was pretty good, actually. » 12/01/14 1:34pm 12/01/14 1:34pm

I'm sorta used to this paradigm by now. Actually, internet gaming has improved my social life. Now I don't have to try to find friends in real life, which for some reason never works (I think it's because I'm disabled. Having a gimpy friend is all fun until I have to ask you to slow down or I need to take a break… » 12/01/14 12:22pm 12/01/14 12:22pm

I was a fool and went to while my bank account is empty. It was a bad idea. Good news is come Monday it'll be okay and I'll have more money. Also need to start work on my Secret Santa stuff. » 11/26/14 12:56pm 11/26/14 12:56pm

Wow, funny. This morning a neighbor yelled at my mom saying that it's illegal to feed wildlife and we shouldn't feed our birds and squirrels. Yes, stoner neighbor lady I'm fairly sure is running a grow house, it's illegal. Which is why every local grocery store and walmart carries bird seed and feeders. People… » 11/18/14 1:32pm 11/18/14 1:32pm

It is fracking freezing out and being a pedestrian is not helping things. I decided to walk to McDonalds today because I didn't think it was wise to wait for the bus. That may have proved to be an error in judgement as the McDonalds currently doesn't actually have working heat. In other news, Right Stuf has a really… » 11/11/14 12:33pm 11/11/14 12:33pm
