It's March Already
It's been March for 8 days now. Most of that time the weather was okay.

Last night it snowed and I have a sinus headache. Those are likely unrelated but I'm going to lump them together anyway.

Current Mood: cranky

I Am Terrible At Something I Like To Do
Alcohol does not improve my ability to play Overwatch.

I wish something did.

The Good And The Bad Of Today
Perfected my buttercream frosting recipe.

Realized that putting buttercream frosting on pancakes is not the best way to make my magically shrinking clothes fit again.

Not Dead Just Lazy Post #milliontytwelve
Did I sleep through January? Is this really my first post of 2018? Holy crap!

Video games and laziness, kids. That's my secret to being completely useless.

Fun With Beverages
I just had some pomegranate sparkling water. It was like plain seltzer that smelled like shampoo. I burped and expected to see soap bubbles float by.

The more you know, I guess.

Christmas! Coffee! Overwatch! Dragon Cave! Sugar!
It's Christmas. There's candy, and wrapping paper, and ribbon, and now slightly less candy, and earlier there were games played and now there's even less candy and there was a big dinner of roast beef and vegetables and biscuits and lots of leftovers, well now there aren't as many leftovers as there were a little while ago and there's really good coffee and I could have sworn there was more candy and it's cold outside but warm in here and it snowed yesterday the cats aren't happy about it and where on Earth does that candy keep going and Starbucks peppermint mocha coffee is good with vanilla creamer and DIRTY DISHES dear Gawd wtf why are all the dishes dirty again and where did the leftovers get to?

I feel like it's too early to go to bed but I'm a little bit tired since I couldn't sleep well last night because Christmas! and falling asleep in front of the computer doesn't really count as a proper nap even if a cat managed to curl up on me while I dozed.

Candy recipe

2 1⁄2 lbs white chocolate
18 ounces peanut butter
2 cups crushed dry roasted peanuts (or chopped pecans)
2 cups miniature marshmallows
3 cups Rice Krispies

Melt the white chocolate and peanut butter together, mixing well. Don't get it so hot that it would melt the marshmallows. Stir in the peanuts, marshmallows and Rice Krispies, then drop lil' blobs of the candy onto wax paper. Let it cool and set. Try to consume in amounts that don't make your eyeballs vibrate.

Happy Thanksgiving!
The turkey is in the oven and the Macy's parade is on the TV.

House Cat has remembered that she is a carnivore and has been underfoot.

'Trine-cat has a ton of energy and has been zooming around meowing at nothing.

Fred-cat bummed around looking for special food until she realized none was being offered, then she curled up on a heat vent to nap. It was the same vent she horked into the other day, causing me much annoyance. At least it's really clean now I guess.

Bruce-The-Tortoise was informed of the holiday but has absolutely no fucks to give, if the look on his face is anything to go by. I wonder if he'll feel the same way once he's given a bit of sweet potato with his usual food. Sweet potatoes are his favorite treat.

Now to resist the temptation to snack too much before dinner is ready.

Perception Fun
I bit into a coriander seed and have spent most of the time since trying to calm and reassure a very stressed out part of my brain that now thinks I ate a stink bug. I did not eat a bug, I ate a seed that smells the same as that bug! Jeez brain, it's like you don't even know me.

Senile Old Lady Ramblings
Holy crap it's November! What have I been doing?

I've recently played a LOT of Overwatch since I wanted Halloween loot boxes but was too cheap to buy them. I got most of the stuff I wanted but dear Gawd I play terribly. I'm the doofus that does things like accidentally flying over a ledge and falling while playing Mercy, plays Torbjorn and throws armor packs under the payload cart where no one can reach them, plays Zarya and hits myself in the face with my own particle cannon grenade things (which probably helped the Mercy behind me to get an insane amount of healing done that round) and I should just never play a character that requires aiming since I can't hit the broad side of a barn even if I'm inside the barn at the time. Sometimes I think that for the good of potential teammates I should stop but then I get the urge to rollerblade while pushing people into a well and that seems like something best done in video game format.

I think I had a birthday at some point. There was a cake anyways. Cake is awesome.

I'm not a huge fan of decorative gourds, but this article from 2009 still deserves attention.

I Am A Lazy Person Of Laziness
Tootsie Roll wrappers are not good for human eyeballs.

I keep neglecting my poor LJ. It's not like I post elsewhere. Not sure why I don't post here much lately. I have been playing a lot of Overwatch so maybe that's been eating my brains. Next week the Halloween event starts! Yay!

Other Families Are Not Like Us And Sometimes I Envy Them
"Look out for that hairy ball!" is not something I want to hear in the morning before I've even had my first cup of coffee, especially if I'm in the kitchen alone except for one of my adult sons.

Weather Report
Humidity is 85%. Who cares what the temperature is. If I never post again it may be because I drowned while breathing.

That's Not Yogurt
I view anything labelled "yogurt alternative" with extreme suspicion, even more so now that I've tried it. If ever you find yourself tempted by such a thing, go eat something else. Trust me on this one.

Got back from InconJunction. It was fun. I am tired. I should post here more often. When I'm not tired I am lazy. Bleh. Stuff.

This Should Sum Up The Past Week Or So
It's too damn hot, the cats are shedding, the tortoise is growing, I've played so much Overwatch that my hands hurt and I see the maps clearly when I close my eyes, and the house isn't cleaning itself even though I've given it plenty of opportunity.

So yeah. Basically all that.

Fun With Synonyms With A Side Of Cat Trouble
Today my youngest spawn turned 21. He is old.

Wait. What does that make me then?

Mature? Nope. Refined? Nah. Decrepit? Possibly. Senile? You bet.

Oh, and our smallest, stupidest cat gave me stress-related gray hair tonight when I couldn't find her anywhere. Eventually she just appeared out of thin air so I can only assume she'd been travelling between realities again. One of the older smellier cats could tell I had been stressed and kept trying to lick my face. While I appreciated the sentiment, her breath was not improving anything at all.

Is It Naptime Yet?
It is WINDY AS FUCK outside today. The rosebush has broken free of where it was tied to the porch and now blocks the front door. Low tree branches were quite the obstacle when I mowed the back yard. A piece of something-or-other came off the house. Siding trim? I dunno. Probably going to be a pain to put back up.

The cats do not care.

Neither does the tortoise.

Friday Already?
Today while I was out I got some mulch for the strawberry patch. Now I just need to go pull some weeds and put the mulch around the plants. Oh look! Internets! I'll just check a few things, it won't take long. Just like how I played a tiny bit of Overwatch last night before cleaning the kitchen...wait. I never did get around to doing that. Hmm. There seems to be a sort of pattern emerging here. I should Google it. Maybe see if Reddit has any threads about it. Tumblr probably knows what's going on... This may take a while...

I Am Multifaceted As Well As Boring
Guess who was vacuuming at 1 in the morning?


And who has ignored a stack of dishes in the kitchen for far too long with plans to continue doing so?

Also me.
