Well, 2020 is finally over. Look for that one in the history books fifteen years from now.
Figured I'd go ahead and do what no one asked for and talk a little bit about the past year. There were a few significant things that happened (aside from the obvious). Expect your usual nonsensical rambling.
First major thing would be starting a new job. I quit my previous job of five years where I was being very mistreated and used and started my new one where I'm much happier. I'm not going t
Random, but I felt like showing some of the mugs I've accrued over the years. I haven't checked up on my mug collecting lore, but I'm sure it's something people do?
We have a whole collection in the cabinet, but these are just mine.
So, for Christmas we have some Snoopy mugs (because what's Christmas with Snoopy?) and my Star Wars mugs. Unfortunately the handle on the Stormtrooper one is broken. But it's kind of awkward to drink from anyway lol.
Here's the other side
Wait wait wait. I had no idea Attack on Titan season 4 starts today.
I've already seen all the other seasons, but I'm a little behind on the manga. I'm around chapter 117, or around there if I remember correctly. Looks like it's a good time to start catching up, since I'd like to finish the manga before I watch the last season.
Crazy to think about how long it's been since the first season. Feels like ages ago lol. Still is one of the best anime I've watched. ^^
Let me explain what you're looking at. Those are the pumpkin/squash plants that have been growing at my house. Only now they're dead.
The temperature at night went from being in the mid 60s for a few weeks to suddenly 34 Fahrenheit in just one night. Unfortunately it looks like the cold was too much for them.
I guess this is how the story ends...
RIP pumpkins 2020-2020 gone too soon.
Well, here we are. One of my favorite times of the year has come and gone... Now Christmas is right around the corner, so things are going to be even better! ... Right?
But anywho, let me share with you my creations of the evening:
Apparently every person in South Carolina had the same idea as I did, so my produce selection was unfortunately quite limited. I think they turned out pretty good though. The cucumber might be my favorite lol.
Also I didn't
Bought a Lego set today for the first time in ages. It was a toss up between this one and another shuttle, I think from the Lego City line? Don't really remember lol. But this one was a little cheaper and had more pieces, so I went with it. I did like the other one too though.
It even comes with Optimus Prime!
There were a few pieces that were new to me, but I'm not sure how new they actually are considering this is my first set since Chima if I remember correc
As you may or may not remember, I am a pretty big Star Wars fan. I don't think I ever talked about any of the new movies or shows here though due to being away from BZP at the time, and I'm sure you've all been lying awake at night wondering what I think about them. Well, you can rest easy tonight, for I am about to reveal all. I'll start with Rebels since that was the first new Star Wars after being bought by Disney:
I was excited at first, but then I realized it was really
For one reason or another I had an itch to plant some pumpkin seeds and have home grown pumpkins for Halloween this year. So naturally I waited until the very end of July (the 28th to be exact) to "plant" these seeds by throwing them out on the lawn, in a spot that's away from any lawn mowing. All was going well for a few weeks... Until someone randomly decide to mow this spot and obliterate my poor pumpkin plants.
But something happened. Despite it being the middle of August at the time, I
Been thinking of getting an actual camera for photography instead of just using my phone to take pictures. Don't get me wrong, it takes decent photos, but I'd like to get a real, dedicated camera so I can take my amateur photography to a slightly higher level lol. There's plenty around here to capture.
I'm also trying to decide on where I'd like to upload said images. I know Flickr has been a favorite here for many years but I've never tried it. I currently use Imgur buuuuut it doesn't seem
Did this a few Halloweens ago:
What should we call it? According to Wikipedia, a Jack O'Lantern is "a carved pumpkin, turnip, or other root vegetable lantern associated with Halloween" and Pineapples are neither root vegetables nor associated with Halloween.
The Halloween decor has left the attic.
I only put out a little bit (more than just what's pictured though), but considering it's still the first week of September I still have plenty of time to setup the rest.
I tried posting this twice yesterday, but BZP was having issues and both times the entry on my blog was blank. So I guess third time's the charm.
When do you think is a good time to decorate for Halloween/autumn?
Me, I'd say mid September is a good time. Though honestly I'd rather start sooner, but considering that it's still in the high eighties in early September here it just doesn't feel right lol.
