general update

Okay, I promise I have a good excuse for not posting in ages. There were some personal matters going on with The Boyfriend that required my attention, finals week kicked my butt, and of course there was that whole Rapture thing. (What, those jokes aren’t funny anymore? Oh. Uhm. *clears throat*)

HOWEVER! Here is the promised “recap post” about what I’ve been up to with most of my geeky activities I had previously blogged about.

magic: the gathering I actually haven’t played at all since January, when school started back up. :X I’ve really missed it, but seeing as I don’t have a ton of access to a car I can’t really make it to any Friday Night Magic events. Also, whenever The Boyfriend and I have been able to hang out, we’re usually studying together and trying to get homework done. So one of my summer geek goals is to get back into playing MTG, and to even attend a Friday Night Magic session.

lego harry potter: years 1-4 Another project that has fallen by the wayside due to school, but I plan on getting The Boyfriend (‘cause he’s the most fun to play it with :) over here to sit down and co-op with me so we can finish up all of the main levels, then I can focus on 100% competition after that. I’m currently on chapter 2 of Prisoner of Azkaban, which means it should only take about 1.5-2 hours of playtime to finish the rest of the game.

portal I finished it. I loved it. GLaDOS haunted my dreams and was the voice of my inner thoughts for weeks afterward. I’m not sure when I’ll be starting Portal 2, because I’d like to finish up the above projects before piling any more on myself, but I’m definitely looking forward to it whenever I do play it!

neopets Still failing at playing games, doing my dailies, and saving up those Neopoints. I might log on a little more often for the Altador Cup this summer, ‘cause Yooyuball is stupidly fun, but don’t get your hopes up. xD

etc. Harry and the Potters, as well as ALL CAPS and co., are touring this summer. I plan on attending and blogging about it afterwards, so look out for that!

Thanks for sticking with me, and here’s to a fantastically geeky summer!

I’ve had Portal on the brain too long

lizardkitsch:

now my internal voice sounds like GLaDOS

first one to makes fun of me will be breathing neurotoxin.

From now on, The Boyfriend will be referred to as The Aperture Science Weighted Companion Cube.

That is all.

(Okay, not really. That’s a lot to type in one go. But I’ve been calling him that in real life and the effect has been rather…lulzy. xD)

jiirani:

LOL

I wish this happened to my class xD
