DragonGrrl in the Kingdom of Loathing

I can’t find a link to get to my profile without being logged in. Kingdom of Loathing is an online RPG. The same one I linked to before with the stick figure drawings. They have KOL Radio which was a lot of fun last night. Never had the experience of live radio and live chat together. I’m going to try again tonight. Not sure if the electricity will be ok here tonight. Barrie and Newmarket have had power failure due to the snowstorms howling through us today and more tomorrow.

A Green Bouquet

This was in an old Martha Stewart Living magazine. I’ve been trying to clear up some of the clutter around. Lots of magazines, I always seem to buy every Christmas issue of just about everything published with glossy pages. It’s a sickness.

Anyway, I liked this green bouquet as a welcome to December. I’ve found a couple of sites (online game sites) which are doing an advent calendar project this month. Take a look at Neopets and Kingdom of Loathing to see them, you will have to join the site to get in there and see it. Likely other sites are doing something. It’s a great idea for getting traffic or keeping it. But, hopefully they had more than that in mind when they started it.

I have chocolate advent calendars to take to my nephew and neices but will have to wait till I can get out there. Who knows when. I’m sure they won’t mind. All those extra chocolates they can eat to catch up.

#3 Thursday Thirteen – Living after the Collapse of Civilization

Thirteen Things to save if civilization ended and we all had to exist in the rubble.

1. A tonne of books, some of those classical literature things I’ve always meant and had good intentions about for so long along with the science fiction, hopeless romances and cosy mysteries.

2. My hope chest. My Grandfather made it for me.

3. All my sheet sets and blankets and quilts. Even if I could find more they just wouldn’t be the same. I have soft dark neon pink sheets which I’ve only used once so far. I have a deep, dark red quilt I found cheap at a thrift store. Also, the beautiful pink, green and white flowered quilt I bought myself when I had my first full time job.

4. Pens, pencil crayons, and plain white lined and unlined paper. I would like to keep drawing, no matter how ungreat my drawing is.

5. A generator or three and my computer. I just can’t see myself writing articles, journals, stories and my blog (yes, that too) in longhand now that I have had a love affair with the word processor so many years. It would be such a hardship to go back to writing by hand.

6. Tonnes of seeds, cuttings, bulbs and so on so I could keep my favourite flowers, trees, fruits and vegetables growing.

7. Cocoa powder (tonnes of it) cause I must have chocolate and I think all the other forms of it would not have enough shelf life.

8. I would liberally take all kinds of coffee beans from the Second Cup and Williams coffee shops. I want all those rich, smooth flavours of vanilla and caramel. I’d need a lot!

9. The digital camera. I’d even get a few spare from stores which would be abandoned once civilization collasped. Might as well have a camera if I have the computer.

10. All my favourite computer games and their most updated versions.

11. Crochet hooks, sewing needles, yarn, fabric, thread, my sewing machine and all the other accessories.

12. Some people. Possibly random, and some family. Anyone who bugged me too much would be thrown off the island though.

13. A taser, old fashioned stocks and whatever else I might need to help remind all those people that I am the world dominatrix/ leader of the island now. Anyone who forgets will be given a not so subtle reminder.

Thirteen Things about Laura

1. I like cute socks.
2. Most of my computer games are city building types. But, I am addicted to Carmageddon.
3. I have never broken a bone in my body.
4. Right now I’m sitting here in a nightie, a green one. Nothing else but cute pink socks.
5. Tomorrow I am planning to hit the thrift stores: GoodWill and Value Village.
6. I am thinking to start a blogroll for sites with UE (urban and rural exploration) photos.
7. I am also planning a blogroll to go along with the WordGrrl blog.
8. I watch Canadian Idol. I think the early shows are better than the big phone in, final ten type shows.
9. I have a pirate fetish. I had it long before Johnny Depp and crew made it fashionable.
10. When I was 16 I saved money. I don’t know what happened to me since then.
11. I really do have too many books. I am obsessed with them.
12. I have to really conclude that Windows Vista sucks in a bad way.
13. I don’t mind to tell people just about anything about myself. But, I get really angry about anyone snooping into my things or myself. I am both really open and really private at the same time. I guess.
