Well, H showed up a day earlier than expected. My only complaint about that is I didn't get a fraction of the things done that I wanted to have ready before she got here.|
I'm writing this on my last night at my folks before heading off on the open road with H for the next several days. I'm looking forward to it. Just getting out of here will be a treat, and the destination should be fun too. One person who will also be there is calling it a geek fest as everyone is bringing a laptop and there will be a puzzle pirate party with everyone playing via our host's wireless connection.
On other internet game fronts, one of the lesser talked about places I use on the internet is a virtual pet website. Well, the new firewall I talked about downloading was interfering with that site. Tonight, I finally figured out the settings I needed to tweak so I could play with Ryan and Neo (the two pets I have on that site). On the down side, the ads on the site are back now that the firewall isn't filtering as much from that that domain name, but on the plus side I'm back to being able to make neopoints other than simply collecting my play money interest in the site's bank.
I've already made enough play money there that I'm mostly coasting on the interest more than playing that game (and still making a slight profit after all the expenses to keep those two pets living in a virtual hotel that caters to them better than I would -- I wish I had enough real money that I could live off bank interest in real life like I'm more or less doing in this virtual pet game).
In viral video news, I think Shakira put on some weight in this remake of her pop song. (warning -- while I'm a fool with a lot of time to DL it on my dial up connection, you really need a broadband connection for this -- or am I the only one still stuck in dial up hell for more reasons than just the cost right now?).
