Pixels fishing: the best part of my day
black ribbon5
I am having a Not Good Day--not quite a Bad Day, but definitely Not Good--for no particular reason at all. I've spent the entire day feeling aimlessly pitiful and wanting to cry. Mostly, I stare at an open Word document for several minutes at a stretch, then check on my Godfinger All-Stars phone app.

Mostly, I like to grow flowers and watch my tiny pixel people catch fish. It's very soothing. They just fish and fish and fiiiiish. My followers are now building me a spooky mansion. It was very expensive and takes three hours to build. I'm really looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

I... I need help.

Godfinger is crack. I love flinging them around. I gave them all a vacation at my taverns and the fishing hole yesterday. It was very relaxing.

I've set it up so I have a little barn/farm in the middle with two ponds on either side, and I can just sit there and watch two people fish and three people rake their little flowers, and click the stars as they float up from the fisherpeople, make sunshine or rain as needed, and it is weirdly relaxing.

Oh come on, Mort lacks a lot of the character of the later books. It's Death-centric, but so is Soul Music, and that is infinitely better.

Also, OMG LOL AT FICTION ALLEY. Thank fuck I left that place years ago.

From the captilisitc side of things...

Plus Soul Music has the fairly more marketable female Susan instead of Mort who I just keep picturing as the skinny guy from Ratatouille.

I...really feel ashamed to have ever visited FictionAlley now. I mean, what the fuck. 'Needy charity' indeed.

I think trying to take charity money for fanfic is going to get on the nerves of some otherwise tolerant copyright holders.

"I've done the research and I'm here to tell you that there are far more sources of funding available to starving children in Africa than there are to fan-oriented websites."

Oh god they didn't.

Well, they apparently quietly revised that to "traditional charities," but YEAH.

I spent most of the weekend feeling pitiful and weepy too. Maybe it has something to do with the season?

Was in tears for no good reason at all today, but now I feel better. I hope you feel better again too, and soon.

Which is more stunning -- the entitlement or stunning lack of perspective? How was their pitch ever accepted? Look at the other entrants: http://www.refresheverything.com/

I want to punch the staff of FA. Steve Kloves too.

it's going to be okay! here are some positive thinking thoughts!!!

i was worried about that scene too (how it's SUPER Crystal Clear *although hopefully you wont actually see hermione's bossom or below their waists*)

BUT someone very thoughtful over at both dhmoviepics and honestlyronald
(seriously i recommend those hp news communities more than ONTD for hp dh news. it has only half the wank, very little # of rabid harmonians, and all the same news. and did i mentioned less of the wank? oh and definitely 1/3 of the innuendoes. $#%$ ONTD always has the stupid innuendos)

anyway, someone in dhmoviepics pointed out that

A. in that scene you see Ron just as clearly, gryffindor sword raised, seconds away from ripping to pieces the horcrux and the illusion (which was, at least in the picture, pretty hilarious.)

B. it was also pointed out that it's very clear that the Hermione in the illusion is NOT pressing herself all over illusion Harry.
which someone then said it was probably because Emma is a HARDCORE Ron/Hermione supporter and she was not going to validate the rival ship that she has said doesn't exist. (she always describes Hermione's feelings for Harry as sisterly or maternal).

so it's going to be okay guys!!!

and even then, Ron rips off the illusion pretty quickly. so it's probably going to be more about Ron.

also 17 more days!!!! *excited*

I'd like to say I expected better, but it was an archive born partially out of wank, and to wank it will return.

i... i didn't knew that.

what do you mean it was an archive born partially out of wank"?

please explain?

Argh, my brother's business group(SIFE) has a community garden proposal in the 25K category. Please for it instead of the fanfic archieves.


Seriously, this group is awesome. Brandon University is a little university in a prairie farming town, and their SIFE group won third in the Canada wide SIFE competition last year, which is awesome. They won a grant from Campbell's for their community garden project too! They also tutor new immigrants on financial literacy.

Really, they're a great group of kids (though I'm totally biased).

The only good thing about the FictionAlley insanity is that it's reminded me that I enjoy playing Free Rice.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I had forgotten about Free Rice. Now when I slack off from work, I'll at least be doing something worthwhile instead of checking facebook for the umpty-millionth time.

Going to see 'Tangled' now.

Godfinger is one of the many reasons I'm glad I don't have an iphone anymore, because I could NOT put it down. The little happy noises the people make are irresistible, and all the mountain-making, lake-filling, and fishing-trip-creating was addictive.

Now that I'm thinking about it...I...may need to get myself an iphone. Must. Resist.

I love their little WHOOHOOS, and how they dance and jump for you when you level. It almost makes me feel guilty for drowning and striking them down with lightning.


Johnny Depp In, Tom Hardy Out For 'Snow White And The Huntsman'?


Dear Harry Potter fandom,

Stop making me have to pretend I'm not a part of you.

No love, Me
