Yes I Am A Button Masher Gamer

Thank you to Mandy on her Tumblr for posting the most awesome shirt that totally describes my gaming abilities.
Speaking of the gaming world, Blizzard continues to dangle shiny things in my face and not deliver >.< I should not be treated like a horse plodding after a carrot, and you are taking a ridiculous amount of time to release Diablo III! Come on! When asked what they are even *thinking* for a release date, they say this:
    -- It's too early to estimate Diablo III's release date. As with all Blizzard Entertainment games, our goal is to create a game that is as fun, balanced, and polished as possible. We intend to take as much time developing Diablo III as is necessary to ensure the game meets our own high expectations and those of our players. We're aiming to release Diablo III on both Mac and Windows simultaneously in as many regions as possible, and to localize the game in several languages. We'll have more details to share about countries, languages, and specific dates as we get closer to release.--
Uhm. Really? I totally understand that you are trying to make a super awesome game, because, well, you're Blizzard and that's what you do. But uh, this has been *asks Tooky* about 5 years. I am a patient person, I swear! But all your cinematic trailers and class releases are not helping my waiting jitters.
However, all is not lost as Bioware zomg knows how make my heart pitter and patter. Basically they released the demo so that I can play it way too many times before it's release date. Which is nigh! Oh heaven I'm excited.
And yet, I haven't had time to play the demo!! ARGH! Stupid work. Stupid school. Stupid responsibilities. And, oh yeah, ya know, the same thing as usual lately, wedding planning. >.<
Also, Australia is a little uppity with their whole gaming board of muahaha funsucking directors.. Banning Mortal Kombat? I lol'd when I read that actually. I kinda hope Yahtzee goes to town about it. 
On the closer side of my academia standings...
Otzi is looking good for his 20th Anniversary make over :) Also, he apparently had brown eyes, not blue. That'll change again I'm sure. Always does.

We'll see how this goes...

So Owen and I kind of love this new form of photography that I stumbled across a long time ago. It's called Urban Decay. I asked around and not a lot people I know have heard of it, but some of my photography friends have heard of it. Most notably:
but my most favorite is what one of my favorite bloggers posted

So Owen and I have been discussing buying a nice DSLR (because he apparently knows how to work one) and going around finding these places we're both attracted too. He loves the history, I love the prospect of forgotten memories. There's something terribly beautiful about places that are is falling apart and forgotten. One place, that I always wanted to snap a picture of is actually in my hometown.

Now A) this is taken with my digital camera and tweeked, so it's not fabulous, and B) I am still figuring out water marks. So any suggestions or advice, super appreciated! 
Anyways, I wish I knew the story on it but my town records aren't exactly up on the net to look at. Along on of the many side gravel roads of my tiny town though stands this old oil well that has fallen into disuse. It hides between the grain elevators (which you can see in the background) and a high hedge of over grown bush. It's so easy to miss and so out of the way that no one notices it really. To me it just seems to stand a small reminder of Alberta's past. It seems so quintessentially Albertan with this rickety old oil well and the grain elevators standing in the background. 


Dreams and Aspiration

I've had many Dreams
Of different things
Oh, the places I wish to see.
Of the places mankind makes
To what God creates
I dream to wander

These glorious wonders
I wish to share
To wonder with another
In a pair
Of wanderlust souls
We'd be.

Walking aimlessly
On an adventure
To us of grandeur
Walking towards the setting sun
And the last Great Unknown
Into the things we never Dared
To Dream

And on the 8th Day God Created

Owen asked me if this is really such a big deal.

To which I reply. If it has to do with Corn Pops then heck, it warrants its own blog post! 
My problem being this. 
Corn Pops are this magical cereal that delights my day. Besides being massively loaded with sugar, they're crunchy. I like crunchy cereal (yes this includes Captain Crunch. But that's my father's addiction)
And you look forward to the glorious moments when you get to eat your crunchy cereal. How it brings such a harmonious and joyful taste to the milk! It makes you happy, like the world is your oyster!
And then all of .02 seconds of sitting in the milk, they get soggy
This is my problem.
Could they somehow develop the wonderfulness of Corn Pop without it getting soggy so damned fast. The speed of light is slower than the speed of Corn Pop soggyness. 
It just ruins my day. 
And I'm aware this is a complaint post.
They happen sometimes. 
For some reason Corn Pops are what I chose to freak out about.
Stressed much?
You bet your bottom dollar.. Ugh.

Bad Apple! You have to learn to share my soul!

And then you go and do this:!5755736/gramophone-style-comes-to-iphone-with-arkcanary-ii
A gramophone style speaker for the iPhone? This is my face:

I want you! I need you! Oh baby, oh baby!
Wait.. wrong movie.
Seriously Apple. Why must you own my soul so. I may completely lost, enthralled, nothing could possibly divert my attentio---

AHH!! zomg Bioware I love you.
*sigh* There are too many things calling out to my soul in longing. Not to mention..
Oh yeah, I still need to pick out a wedding cake.
Too much to do people! Too much to do.

Also. How cute are those little love birds? D'awww

Flamethrowers anyone?

So it's been cold and snowing across the eastern seaboard, and I'm sure there are many people who are truly tired of picking up a shovel *again* after a ridiculously long winter. Actually, I think we all are. I personally could not stand to look at a snow shovel for forever a long, long time. Because really snow is great, and fun, and all snowman's and catching it on your tongue for the first three inches. After that it's basically frozen hell >_<
And you know, this happens every year. Funny how that works. But every year you hear this on the tv:
"And city council is trying to find more money to put into the snow removal budget so that roads with be in better conditions! We'll send out ever plow, man and child to clear that snow!"
And then the next year comes and your driving through five feet of slush with no plow in sight. Until after the damned snow melts.
So you'd think we'd have better plans. We do have a whole year 3 months to plan for this fluffy white stuff. What could possibly be our solution?
Flamethrowers? Flamethrowers.
How have we not thought of this before!
This mayor is a genius, I vote him for mayor! Talk about b.a. ingenuity!
I move for a budget expense to have flamethrowers implemented to dispense of this snowy threat! Because honestly, how awesome would that be. Other countries would dare not mess with us even. After all, we'd be using flamethrowers to get rid of snow, imagine what we'd do to them. Because of one man's idea we could be a country with the imagery of being totally b.a. with no snow.
But alas, we're a country with the image of igloos, dog sleds, people name Doug and Bob and the word 'Eh!' because of snow.. Gah!
We don't get the flamethrowers because we're peace-keepers, that's the reason isn't it? Nrrrrgh...
Also, as I usually post Anthro News. I'm sure some may wonder why there has been no news pertaining to the matters with Egypt's museum.
That's because I'm still crying over it.
For those who don't know..
Crying harder...
They better have the bloody army guarding everything. Mob mentality = sheer idiots.. Amongst other words.
Aside from my ranting my week has been pre occupied with picking flowers. For my wedding. Heh. My wedding. So funny to say. However, I finally decided.
 This isn't an exact example of a boquet I want, but it's close. It's what I'm basing my idea off of. Green hydrangea and cream gerbera's. ^_^ They look cuuuuuute. 
Now, off to plan glorious centerpieces and many other things that will probably make my brain melt. Oh and do homework. Right.
