Well I had hoped to post a video link to my lovely. foul-mouthed husband’s Twitch page however, WP has decided that unless I upgrade, I shall not be allowed. *Shakes fists at WP overlords* So text link it is.
There’s no judgements on my part about all the swearing as, I sound much like a trucker in my day-to-day life. I say it mostly as a warning for anyone not into that kind of thing.
He plays a little bit of everything. Rivals of Aether, Super Smash Bros, Among Us and there is even a video of yours truly doing a full Castle Crashers run with him on our anniversary. He loves video games as much as I love books and isn’t that how love is supposed to work??
If this sounds like something you might be interested in, please go give him a follow. It will make the fellow happy and make me look like a good, supportive wife.
Also, he said if he gets even one follower from this post, he’ll kiss my toe. Make sure he knows I sent you. I want this toe kiss on principal alone.
Ah, the grand finale of what proved to be the best month of 2020. In my opinion at least, although, the rest of 2020 hasn’t left much for comparison. :3
5 out of 5 stars – I forgot to include this in my books last week so here it is. I took this book to leave at work every day back in March and I finally finished it. (I didn’t feel like reading every day on my lunch.) This was a great account of the women who shaped the frontier of Kansas through their own words. I learned new things about frontier life that I didn’t previously know and enjoyed the random pictures to accentuate the stories. Especially the picture of turkeys in harnesses pulling a child’s carriage that had zero accompanying information.
5 out of 5 stars – I felt the need to read a non-fiction book while trying to stay in the spooky lane and that brought me to serial killers. I only owned one book that fit the bill. This was my first Harold Schechter full length novel. He comes highly recommended by Marcus of Last Podcast on the Left, so of course, that peaked my interest. I was not disappointed. It was thoroughly researched and yet the writing style kept it fresh, avoiding boring explanations. This was the first ebook I’ve read with scrolling pictures and animation, which made it all the more fun.
Up until Halloween, we backed off of movies to check out:
Let me say that this was very well written and enjoyable in one aspect, however, we did not find it spooky in the slightest. It was actually incredibly DEPRESSING more than anything. So you’ve been forewarned if you decide to move forward with watching this.
Halloween is Mr. C&M and I’s wedding anniversary. Without needing to say it but saying it anyway, Covid has made things different. Trick or treating was not canceled here but we decided to not hand out candy this year anyway. No virus-y little kid hands here, thank you.
Instead, we started the day off with pumpkin cinnamon rolls and our favorite horror movies;
We then made our way to the cidermill, with the intention that, should there be too many people we would bail. Luckily, there were only around 10 people on the entire property, so we snagged our donuts and apple cider, feed a few animals some grain and headed home.
We got carry out later from one of our favorite breweries that we are lucky enough to live by and then preceeded to stream on Mr. C&M’s Twitch channel a full run of Castle Crashers. I’ve never sat down and beat a game from start to finish, and to do that with my husband was a lot of fun.
Lesson here is, the holidays are going to be weird this year, just make the most of them. There are still plenty of ways to make great memories. Get creative!
Aaaaaaah! The first week of October has been splendid. Not quite up my alley, but I’m being a supportive wife, has been the three day weekend of Big House 9. A giant Smash Bros tournament. Today is day 3 and the Championships. The husband played the first day and won his first match, then lost his second. I love him for not being a sore loser and just using it as motivation to get better for the next tournament. He’s not into regular sports (neither am I) but man does he love E-Sports. He’s been like a kid in a candy shop through the whole experience.
Last night, after a partial day of gaming, we attended my uncle’s yearly Brewfest. He brews his own beer (he’s really good at it), and show cases what he’s done. It’s more like an annual get-together that revolves around beer. It’s always a fun time but this year, he built an axe throwing range. I’ve always thought throwing axes would be sweet so I of course gave it a try. Turns out, ya girl is a natural. I was named VIP of axe throwing. It may have been a little too much fun, this might become a ‘thing’.
We only managed one horror movie for the week. We’ve wanted to watch US for quite some time since it was hyped as being seriously creepy. However, neither of us ended up being overly impressed by it. (We both enjoyed Get Out much more.) When you have to look up plot line details online afterwards, you know the story was missing large chunks. It wasn’t bad, but it was not as amazing as it was made out to be. 3/5 stars.
Treats – It was time to officially start indulging in pumpkin. We tried Meijer’s mini pumpkin muffins for breakfasts. They were pretty good, if you don’t want to make better homemade ones, they’ll suffice. I had my first Pumpkin Spice latte of the season from Tim Horton’s. Again, it was okay. (I think my pumpkin standards are set really high.) I also made an easy pumpkin treat for the part yesterday that I’ll post later in the week.
How did your first week of October treat you? Or was it full of tricks?
As of 3 am this morning, I have lost my husband for the week, probably longer. The new expansion for World of Warcraft was released.
I’m a firm believer in the couple that games together, stays together.
But, I don’t play anymore. I played from BC through Mists and attempted Warlords for about a month after it came out. For the most part, the game just lost its appeal to me. This expansion is highly tempting though. The demonhunter class looks like oodles of fun and what is better than demon slaying? Too bad that I went so far as to get rid of my desktop computer. (The graphics were shite and I couldn’t stand looking at it any longer.) Despite the temptation with the new x-pac, I would have to spend hundreds of dollars in order to play again. My laptop can’t handle the kind of power required to save Azeroth and Outland.
So the motto changes; couples that game/read together, stay together.
I know a lot of couples argue over gaming, lots of wife/husband aggro. But honestly, my husband is lucky that I understand AND don’t mind being ignored for a lengthy time period. I’m my own person and I’ve got shit to do.
I know, I know! I have been so completely vacant on this blog. I’m tsk tsking myself as we speak. The world is so full of insane topics for me to make fun of I just can’t seem to decide which one to pick!
So today I shall make fun of myself and my stupid affection for World of Warcraft. (Punching myself for putting stupid and WoW in the same sentence. I actually adore my love of the game.)
Tonight at midnight is the release of the new expansion pack Mists of Pandaria. I have not been excited. So I didn’t ask for the day off of work. Now slightly regretting that decision.
Yes we can make fun of playing pandas all live long day. Yes I’ve heard about a million Kung Fu Panda jokes. BUT I DON’T CARE! A new race is a new race and a new class is a new class. I had never thought I would get bored with WoW but Cataclysm sure showed me what for!
Are you excited or could you care less? (If you play the game that is.)
So here’s to a new xpac and the dreams of having fun again!!
