Thursday Thoughts: 17 November 2016

Wow – this month is just over halfway over, already! What with the recent election and doing my best to meet the daily word-count challenge of NaNoWriMo, I’ve been insanely busy – but it is enjoyable, believe it or not! I didn’t assume that the challenge would be easy…after all, if something is easy, then it can’t qualify as a challenge, now, can it? I will say that it is a worthy challenge, so I’ve been adjusting my writing schedule as needed, so as not to be overwhelmed or frustrated. One cannot force inspiration, and if I’m staring at a computer screen blankly, with nothing coming to mind, then trying to push myself isn’t going to work. Those are the times I unplug from the computer completely and do something else! My “unplugging” is why I’ve barely been able to keep up with even 1/10th of the blogs that I follow! Apologies to my friends and acquaintances for my absence…I at least try to “like” posts here and there, even if I can’t comment as much. The month will be over before I know it, though, and things can get back to some semblance or normalcy…whatever that is!

Speaking of gaming, there is a “free play” weekend promotion going on for the game that I’m hopelessly and shamelessly addicted to. It’s so free, you don’t even have to purchase The Elder Scrolls Online game. Simply click on this link for the details – if you have a Steam account, then you’re halfway there! I do notice though, that many gamers (including myself) definitely have a preference of the genres that we play. Me, I like the MUDs and RPGs, whether they’re MMOs or not. I also like the “collect & build” games, including StarCraft, Command & Conquer, and Total Annihilation. The only FPS-types that I liked were Half-Life and Half-Life 2…it doesn’t hurt that I’m actually in one of those games – at least I can admit my favouritisms and why, LOL

In honour of Skyrim’s newest version recently being released, and the free-play weekend going on, I figured that I’d add the links of my three favourite “Clueless Gamer” clips from Conan O’Brien’s site, TeamCoco.com. They are some of the funniest things that I’ve ever seen, so why wait for Friday to watch them? Thursday has been called “Friday Eve” by myself and many others for a few years, so let’s get the weekend started early, and on a fun-filled note! I hope that you enjoyed the hidden links scattered about, and that the five songs at the end of the post get you dancing around. Later, gators!

Fashion Senseless: Help Wanted

ROFLMAO – this is the best! Applications sent in by “The Deplorables,” who are answering their “Dear Leader’s” request for “Help Wanted.” No experience necessary – nepotism and “merit-based” hiring is preferred by the soon-to-be narcissist-in-chief!

My furry friends are getting ready to go for their winters sleep. They each have a nice quiet den to go to.Some place thats dry & away from animal trails.

Bears do not hibernate btw.Thats a myth.They go into a state of “Torpor”.It’s a deep sleep but not as deep as hibernation.A animal hibernating will not wake up if you kick them,but a bear will wake up.A bears metabolic state is higher than that of a animal hibernating.The heart rate per minutes is slower with animals hibernating. Bears do wake up (supposedly?) during Winter & walk about but in 30 years ……..I haven’t seen one?So go figure?

I know this particular bear,which is why he allowed me to get close while he was resting.

Journals and sketchbooks are bits of history, viewed through the eyes of those who lived through it – this is awesome.
