The week of awesome Harry Potter stuff continues…

I know that it seems like I’m never going to get to UNITY, but I promise I will. It’s just taking me much longer to do. It’s just so much easier to post links and videos of stuff. Today I received an email from Barnes and Noble telling me to pre-order my copy of J.K. Rowling’s newest […]

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Trailer…IT’S HERE!

I’ll blog about UNITY later, but Wynn called me to let me know about this and obviously, I had to post*: Harry: Did you know, sir? Then? Dumbledore: Did I know I’d just met the most dangerous dark wizard of all time? No. Oh god l’m so excited!!!! I can hardly wait till November 21. I’ve got […]

I’m off to Chicago!

Video games going musical

Growing up in a family with no male children, my sister and I have never been big on video games. Our parents didn’t seem to see the need for their daughters to learn how to get two plumber brothers to defeat the king of a “turtle-like” race called Koopas or to figure out which punch/kick/fireball combination […]

Never underestimate the potential of a “staycation”

On Wednesday I had the day off from work as did my friend Wynn. So, obviously taking advantage of our free day, we spent the day together–something that’s usually pretty difficult with our respective schedules and the fact that she’s out of Edmonds and now lives in Kirkland and I’m in Mountlake Terrace.
