Fallout (1997): Vault 13 & The Brotherhood of Steel

Some fangirling may have happened.

Fallout (1997): Necropolis

Got to meet some lovely ghouls.

Today I am Mourning the Loss of my Favorite Cups

What is it that Sam Vimes says? “I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer. Hell, I’m probably a spoon!” –  From Thud! by Terry Pratchett. Well I kept wondering why my favorite mugs and cups kept getting broken.
I had a tumbler that said: MIGHT BE VODKA on the side. It was broken (none of these are by me btw) and then I replaced it with a can chiller (photoed above) that had a peacock on it because I like peacocks. Russ was kind enough to break that one. He claimed it was fragile.
Most of my coffee mugs have chips either in the handle (such as the one I’m using right now) or around the rim. Today it finally dawned on me why, why this is a thing I have to deal with. It is simple. They’re my favorites, so I use them more, and they get washed and handled more, more opportunity for them to be dropped.
I’m planning for my next cup to be a metal travel mug that says: MIGHT BE VODKA. I hope that if it is metal, my family can’t break it… as easily.

Fallout (1997): Success and Failure

Little bit of background. I had in total to attack the raider camp 4 times. First time I was under the impression I could just charisma my way in, and talk them into giving me the hostage. Garl (the main badguy) shot and killed me.
2nd time, I went in guns blazing, ran out of bullets and stimpacks because I had used up most of my bullets killing rats in Vault 15.
This is video is the 3rd time I did it, but failed miserably in Junktown and decided to just load my last save… Until I loaded it and realized I hadn’t remembered to SAVE after defeating the raiders.

Review: Ready Player One

Ready Player One
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

One of the first books in a long time that I didn’t want to put it down (or since I had it on audio, didn’t want to stop listening.) I saw the movie first, and there are some things I admit I liked better in the movie, such as Daito and Shoto being actual brothers. As I mentioned I listened on audio and the book is read by Wil Wheaton.
I wouldn’t say the book is non-stop action from start to finish but what kept me reading (listening) was how familiar the book was to me. It was like my childhood (I’m an 80’s kid) was wrapped in an MMORPG (which I had spent 8 years of my life playing World or Warcraft) so the book struck a chord with me. I related very well with it and the characters. Granted the book is almost entirely exposition because the author knew that people not familiar with the 80’s would need some guidance through it.
This has become one of the favorite books and I plan to read it again and again for years to come.
