GW Halloween

Had such fun the last couple of weeks. GuildWars2 had a special event. The capital, Lion’s Arch, was all decorated, there were trick or treat doors that sent you to the Mad King’s Labyrinth, where you could play some strange game of hide, seek and kill, er, convert, or go bash monsters like candycorn kritturs, with energetic impromptu zergs (big groups of people who take the baddies on in a riproaring brawl). The baddies dropped trick or treat bags that contained things like candycorn, plastic vampire fangs, and chattering skulls. These can all be used as either currency for goodies available only through the event (like BIG storage bags or minis like a black kitty (zuzu—Poobii has one in the pics) or the bloody prince (who was the bad guy this time…you did him in with a candycorn mini) or a ghostly spider. Oooooo….

Anyway, the last night of the event, I broke down and bought the Poobanator a Mad King costume. For a while, he went around Lion’s Arch with the King, being a frolicking Minime. But then Carolyn pointed out an asura (little folk, like Poobii) up on the central haystack, playing his flute. Poobii had to jump up and listen, then join in, first to the flute, then a drum, then the boom box, for which he broke out the “inventory shuffle”. The other guy joined right in. When Poobii had to leave, he would bow and he always bowed back. When Poobii tried to get all the stickinthemuds in the area to dance with him, he joined in that, too. We came to the conclusion the humans were chickens. At one point, a charr joined in the revelries.

It was a great way to close out the party.

Hope you can make these out. The quality of the screen shots sucked. I wish I’d known how to capture the screen in video….Time to research…

My New Jumpsuits!

Here ’tis!


Halloween’s a’comin’!

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes! I had fun…took the day to get Wiishu’s Halloween outfit completed. And since my main BD prezzie from Carolyn was (a) the end of the current foreigner book and (b) two weeks of her time helping sort through the stuff and get what we don’t want out of the house…I’ve hardly even looked at the internet. If all goes as planned, if we truly do get our house into something like organized at last, my online presence might actually become something other than “today’s round tuit”! Meantime, here’s a taste of the season!



Possibly the most important share I'll ever make

With many many thanks to my sister for alerting me to it.

I realized a long time ago that I’m not a feminist; I’m a humanist. This is not because I’m ashamed to be associated with feminism, but because I feel the advocates are, too often, too narrow in their focus. Social pressures and stupidity goes both ways. To solve the problem, we must free everyone from the same degrading system. Emma Watson, the remarkable young woman who played Hermione Granger, is using that world-wide recognition in the best possible way. This speech she made to the UN HeForShe conference is long, but worth every second.

ShejiCon 2014!

Mom has been bery bery busy an’ has lots an’ lots ob pitchurs fwom d’last few months. She’s workin’ hard to catch up. So I’m givin’ you a Wiishu’s-eye view ob our recent little relaxacon here in Spokane.

Wiishu’s Dance

OMG. I was sitting in Swinging Doors with Carolyn waiting for food to arrive, and I decided to try what Roget did. HAH! I’m here to tell you, it WAS magic! I’ve been posing this little dude for two years. Couldn’t begin to make him move like that. Roget, I bow down in awe!
