Friday Fun-time: 11 September 2015!

Sorry about that – I ‘disconnected’ for a couple of days with no warning! Just from my blog, guild-site, and email – not from my game…I needed to vegetate a bit. I’ll be catching up on everyone’s blogs in a little while! I spent some time outside, in between rain showers, measuring the overgrowth and getting ready to butcher the plants around the property. They are encroaching on the path in the breezeway, around the pump-house and garage, and trying to take over in the driveway. I still don’t know what half of the plants around my house are, other than the rhododendrons, holly, pampas grass, sedge, bamboo, huckleberry bushes, and wild raspberries and salmon-berries. I think that I have honey-suckle near the front fence, and foxgloves and lilies flower nicely a couple of times during the summer, in random places. The deer have been foraging on a regular basis – I really need to get some vertical blinds so that it is easier to take pictures from inside the house without disturbing them.

I haven’t looked at the online news yet this morning, but I watched a little of the crapfest on TV last night. TV news is annoying to me, for the most part. I wanted to see what is going on in the world; same old, same old, apparently. What a pleasant woman that was, kicking a little girl and then tripping up a man carrying a child. How nice. Tom Brady apparently succeeded in pissing and moaning about his deserved suspension, so now it’s been overturned. You can be a cheating, lying douchebag and keep your job…as long as you’re famous, that is. As far as the political circus goes, every station seems to be doing their best “all Trump, all the time” grab for ratings. That makes me want to get the bumper sticker that Stephen Colbert displayed on his show! So glad that he’s back, and I’m glad that Stephen remained his Stephen-y self. My DVR will be getting a workout between Colbert and Conan O’Brien, while I watch Trevor Noah and Larry Wilmore! I need my medicine called laughter…in extra doses, these days.

I have recruited a few new people into my guild, and now the number balance is off – so I need to recruit a few more! Don’t ask…I’ll explain later. Just one of my quirks…we all have them, so I’m not alone in that! I’ve decided that now is the time to go for the achievement of being crowned empress, and that will be a chore and a half – I just know it! It will be a lot of painful fun, and very physically and mentally demanding…it amazes me that a long gaming session can feel like running a 100-meter dash – or, sitting in traffic for two hours!

Speaking of trying things…I love my husband. I really do. He just talks WAY too much! I told him the other day that I was going to buy him a “Mr. Slave” outfit and a ball gag, and put him in one of those swings for two hours, forcing him to watch a One Foot in the Grave marathon – I have the whole series on DVD. What do you think: sound like a good idea, or too extreme? Maybe I’ll just settle for the outfit and the ball-gag…as long as he’s quiet!
