My love for Halloween

Halloween is a few weeks away but it is the best time of the year. You have costumes, candy and all of the amazing decorations. Who doesn’t love spiders? They are great for getting rid of mosquitoes. Here are some of the things I love about the fall and especially Halloween!

Here are some of the things that I want, have or can’t wait to use!

These should be some fun DIYS!

This is on sale for $49.95 at Williams Sonoma. You get 9 pieces. I think I can make these. Dark chocolate and caramel. I can do it, at the very least I can make a crazy mess. A crazy delicious mess. 

I can’t wait! It is also the best time for Costume Quest 2!

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. This is a subject that is very important to me.  Domestic Violence can impact anyone. Men, women and children can all be victims of Domestic Violence. It also manifests itself in many ways. Physical, emotional, sexual and verbal abuse are all terrible things.  If you see something or suspect something speak up.

You can be the strength that others need in order to escape and live a loving life. 

The Quote of the Day

I should be in bed but instead I was doing this. BE INSPIRED!

New Additions! The Delayed Edition!

I got some comics, some toys and a whole lot of fun!

The Spine from The Transistor OST

The Transistor Original Soundtrack is amazing! It was created by Darren Korb of Supergiant Games with vocals by Ashley Barett. I am buying this game for the music.


The Year of the Geek

This year has been amazing! There have been several new starts and it has been incredibly rewarding. So what’s the plan for this year? 

Getting tickets for BlizzCon was an emotional roller coaster that I never want to be on again. The reward was amazing though! The International was nerve wracking as well. However, I have booked our hotel and it should be really interesting. (Our hotel looks like it’s stuck in the 80’s)The final step is to book our flights. There is a theory going around the internet that states that if you wait x amount of days then your flights will be at their lowest price. I doubt it but we’re going to give it a try anyways. 

To celebrate our trip to The International, I bought Shagbark and Malfurion … I mean Nature’s Prophet. These two are hella cute plush! Though I haven’t played DOTA 2, it has exploded on the e-sports scene. The prize pool is the largest to date of any e-sports tournament. That’s a pretty big deal. Why is the pool so large? Valve has figured out how to monetize a free to play game and how to get the community to empty out their pockets.

It’s not enough to say that Valve has an incredibly engaged community when it comes to DOTA 2. Valve has been able to keep community engagements for most of its games. The free to play game is a MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena). This came at some controversy though. DOTA 2 is actually a mod of Warcraft 3. Blizzard and Valve went back and forth to see who would actually use the name. At one point both Valve and Blizzard had demos for a DOTA 2 game. Suffice to say it was a bit confusing. Some of the character models in DOTA 2 still bear a strong resemblance to the Warcraft models that inspired the game.  Valve is attempting to modify the characters so that’s a huge plus. The International is the World Cup for Gamers. A close runner up is BlizzCon’s WCS event.

I am incredibly excited for both. It’s going to be fun times.

The Spring Playlist

The weather is changing and it’s time for fun! Here is what I have been listening to lately.

This mix is all over the place! Just like me! 

The weather is getting really lovely and I am so excited. Nice days means more days out! It’s
going to be sunshine, lollipops. The other day we went to visit the new born baby Gorillas. 
It’s nice seeing the animal being maternal. What worst part about going to the zoo though,  is the people. “Oh look honey! The Gorilla is posing!” The Gorilla is not posing! He’s being 
defensive, he’s protecting his young. You stupid SOB! Then you have the kids! The kids!
They’re little monsters that bang on glass and can’t even say excuse me! Kids are gross!

Can’t wait for the rest of the warm weather adventures. Even if I have to deal with people.LOL
