1. This is what I do instead of lesson plans.

    World 3.

    The deaths continue.

    I got my first game over.

    I was on my way to getting a second game over when my sugar-deprived mind figured out Wendy’s pattern and I won (as Small Mario, of course, because God forbid I get through an airship unscathed)

    On the bright side, I managed to get a Coin Ship without trying and finished off a Memory Match game in one go. On the normal side, I got a game over on World 3. What. the. Balls. Big Bertha. Always with the Big Bertha.

    Also, it seems that whenever you save and quit your game, you’re reset to zero points and coins when you reload your game. (At least your stock is untouched. Otherwise, I would be crying.)

    Since I’m not going to be able to say this any longer, especially given my rate of deaths: at least I’m not Iron Chitlin.

     
  2. World 2!

    In which I die 4 times, rather than 3. Ugh.

    Failures include 2-2, where I was trying to get the secret Toad House by gathering all the coins and becoming food for Cheep-cheeps. (Seriously, curse my forgetting the physics of this game.) Also, dying twice in the fortress in the same spot because of jumping fail. Oh, and dying to the first Chain Chomp in 2-5. After that last death, I just said “fuck it” to 2-5 and skipped it. My completionist heart is breaking.

    Managed to get the whistle here, so hurray for that, I guess. (I’m going to do a straight run through of the game, though, so they’ll just be in my inventory to pretty it up a bit.)

    Morton went down easily. (I confused him with Roy, so I was wondering why there were no earthquakes. Meh, easier time of it.)

     
  3. So, I’ve had some Nintendo emulators with me for… almost a year, meaning to play through the Mother series along with some other stuff.

    Instead, I start on Mario 3. All-Stars Version, because I’m a classy person who likes classy 16-bit upgrades.

    My muscle memory for Mario 3 is shot to hell. It’s been too long since I platformer’d. (I don’t know if you can call the AssCreed series platformers, exactly, and then the one before that was Valkyrie Profile: Alicia, which is a JRPG that wants to be a platformer.)

    It took me three lives to get through World 1. Three. The worst was when I mis-timed my last jump on Larry and died. (Because of course I got hit on the airship and had to fight as Small Mario.) The other two were platform fails.

    I only got one of the two Whistles (the one in the fortress), because I forgot about the one in 1-3 (FFFFFF…). Slider game and memory match game were similar fails. (Though I remembered about the last three cards always being a mushroom, flower, and star in that order. Thank you very much, Super Mario Bros. 3 coloring book.)

    Will continue my rage and whining later.

    why would you ever idolize cops when firefighters exist

    yeah seriously have you ever heard of “corrupt firefighter” 

    what would a ‘corrupt firefighter’ even be. he put out that fire with a little TOO much water. he was a little rough with the cat he rescued from a tree for a little old lady

    well, there’s the firefighters that turn to arson…

    Or coerce people into giving sexual favors

    lesbian and bi women should have a secret code word that we slip into conversation with girls we’ve just met to see if they also like girls 

    Reblogging this mainly to remind myself to collect and list the suggestions given in the notes later. Would be a help to others, I hope.

     
  7. Ninjatwins: X.x I can’t send it because there’s no ask option on the tumblr post. But Poinsettia!

    Favorite holiday foods depend on the holiday in question.

    Let’s go chronologically, starting from November

    American Thanksgiving: Most things contained in potato form. Mashed red bliss potatoes with turkey gravy, and also Causa Rellena de Atún

    Christmas Eve: Panettone with hot chocolate.

    New Year’s Eve: See Christmas. Also add sparkling wines. Though that isn’t technically a food.

    American Independence Day, if celebrated: Grilled sausages, Italian or bratwurst. Though the traditional thing with brats is to use onions and beer, my family doesn’t do that. I suppose I can get away with it because I’m not in Wisconsin, and thus it’s not blasphemy in the house of the gods?

  9. Upon listening to “Old Oak Doors,” I came to the realization that the Smiling God is a fal’Cie and Strex employees its l’Cie. The reason that Desert Bluffs is so hell-bent on production is so that all l’Cie can fulfill their Focus for the Smiling God.

    no shade @ anyone but i pray to god that i’m not on tumblr.com in my late 20s/early 30s but instead my career is peaking i’m making bank i got a nice house and i got somebody waiting at home for me god damn it

    oh honey.

    Remember, kids, when you hit 30, you have to give up all of your hobbies. That peaking career and nice house and romantic partner mean you will have zero time to get online and dick around looking at cat gifs.

    man, what even is the point of conforming to society’s standards for success if you can’t find the spare time to reblog cat pics?

    Fandom and hobbies as Logan’s Run. The BNF’s in charge of these things cross-check names with the birth date information that the fan provided upon entering the fandom. If the fan is found to be over 30… the fan is never found again.

Don’t go into the dog park!  The dog park will not harm you.

All right. Kingdom Hearts/Welcome to Night Vale crossover. We’ve already got the portals to other places and mysterious hooded figures and doubles that aren’t exactly your doubles. (Why do I think Sora and Cecil would get along? I mean, Cecil when he’s thinking about cat videos or happier times with Carlos.)

    The Black Count is Being Adapted for a New Film!

    Tom Reiss’s The Black Count, which details the true story of Général Thomas Alexandre Dumas (father of author Alexandre Dumas), is being adapted into a film directed by Cary Fukunaga (director of HBO’s True Detective).

    No actors have been named so far, although some people are already speculating that Howard Charles may be considered for the lead. He’s known for playing the role of Porthos on the BBC’s Three Musketeers:

    You can read a bit more about this story and hear an interview with the book’s author here at Indiewire.

    You can read an excerpt of The Black Count here.
