At the start of quarantine, there was a lot of uncertainty as to just how long this thing would last. Perhaps that was naivete. No yeah, that was definitely naivete. But see, I own a lot of t-shirts. You know what, we’ll get to that… When everything locked down back in March and April of 2020, we lost a lot of things, everything changed, yadda … Continue reading Good riddance, laundry tub
Oh it’s summer, folks. And to me, that means just one thing: stay inside and play video games. I’ve always been an indoor kid. I’d much rather spend a beautiful sunny day on the couch with a controller in my hands than outside at the park or the beach.

She’s played through the game so many times now, in fact, that a good deal of the dialogue (outside of character conversations) … Continue reading REVIEW: My girlfriend saying "my beefsteaks" anytime Zagreus says "my keepsakes" in Hades
Wowee, I haven’t blogged about these things in a while, huh? Well, that’s not just because I’ve been away from the blog, it’s also because I haven’t engaged with Animal Crossing New Horizons’ turnip market since sometime last summer. This is thanks both to betting big and striking it rich on an island I found on the Turnip Exchange, and simultaneously reaching a part of … Continue reading This week's turnips, Week of May 10th, 2021
Hi. I haven’t blogged in a little bit, and truly the greatest loss there is that I missed blogging about the big boat getting stuck. If you either missed it when it was all anyone could talk about on Twitter for weeks or are now looking back from the future going oh yeahhhhhhhhhhhh, here’s a quick summary: Capitalists rely on global trade routes to make … Continue reading I missed blogging about the big boat getting stuck
