Last weekend, DG and I hit up some tag sales. There was a big neighborhood tag sale a few blocks away, an estate sale a little further away in town, and a synagogue rummage sale in another town. We actually managed to find something good at all of them, and my whole haul cost me about $15. Awesome.
This puppy cost me $1. Can’t beat that at all! It doesn’t fit my whole collection at all, but it’s better than them sitting in boxes. I’m also considering getting rid of some that are lower quality or just aren’t my color so I can fit more ones I do like and use in here anyway. DG noticed this at the neighborhood tag sale, luckily.
At the estate sale, I picked up two ’50s-60s amber desert dishes for $2 total. I’ll clean them up a bit and either give them to my mom, or sell them online. The price was definitely right on those. (Sorry, no picture!)
My most exciting find, however, was at the synagogue rummage sale over in Old Bridge. Continue reading …
I spend a lot of time in Azeroth every week. DG and I have been playing World of Warcraft for over two years now and it’s one of our main sources of entertainment. Some people watch TV, we play video games. For some though, this is a little hard to understand, so here is the first installment of Geeksplained: World of Warcraft.
Where did WoW come from? Aren’t there pandas?
For the 8th anniversary of WoW, Blizzard put together this awesome video that touches on most of the major storylines of the game.
But for those who really just want the cliff’s notes version, here you go:
Between 1994 and 2003, Blizzard released 3 strategy games called Warcraft (1, 2 and 3) with the story of Humans against Orcs.
In 2004, World of Warcraft went live. Yay!
Players can choose from two factions: The Alliance or The Horde. The two factions are constantly at war (fancy that) and players in one can’t interact with the other except in player-vs-player (PVP) situations. There are now many race choices, including Pandaren. Continue reading …
What is this mysterious place with a gorgeous ceiling? Hmmmm…
Hi everyone! Long time no see! My first thought was to apologize for not writing in a little bit, but let’s face it: I needed the break and it helped me a lot. No apologies! I have been majorly busy at work, with my hobbies, friends, family, wedding planning, whatever, and there was no more mental power left for writing in this blog. Hell, there was no time for me to read blogs and my Newsblur account has been sitting in the thousands for weeks.
Here’s the abridged version of what’s new with me:
DG and I have visited two wedding venues and have basically picked one. Woohoo! Will share details sometime soon. Though, the post image might be a little clue.
I am working on a humongous project at work that is basically eating my entire workday. And it’s been going on like this for the last month plus, and will be going on for at least another week and a half. This has been really draining of my mental energies.
We’ve been super busy on the weekends. We went to CT two weekends in a row, we held a good sized party at our place last weekend, and we’ve just been on the move.
On the WoW front, we’re ranked 20th on our server! This might not be super exciting to most raiders but meh, we feel accomplished. We are also at 15/16 regular mode on the last tier, which is nothing to sneeze at IMO.
The cosplay front, however, is quiet. I’m only going to Friday of AnimeNext this year (Moon Stream, with Satsuki, is the musical guest, so I am totally there) and am likely not making a new costume. I will either bring Mari (Evangelion) again, or piece together a lolita outfit? Unsure yet – but it’s only 7 weeks away only.
I’ve realized I’ve lost over 20 (maybe 25)lbs since I have met my fiancee! This puts me at 60-65lb lost total, which is really exciting to me. I know I don’t talk about fitness on the blog much but it’s worth mentioning.
I plan to have the normal new content soon, so thanks for your patience everyone!
