Change of Season

Pepper, Marvin, Pinky, and Morris were making excited and curious little chirps today. They noticed that the weather is starting to cool off and the humidity is lower than it has been. The cockatiels are ready for Fall!

Where’d You Go, Bernadette – by Maria Semple

Bernadette is a quirky, unbalanced, architect who hasn’t worked in a while. Her husband, Elgin, works for Microsoft. They live in Seattle with their wonderful daughter, Bee.

Bee comes home from school with a stellar report card and asks her parents for a trip to Antarctica (a promised reward for good grades). Bernadette disappears shortly before the trip. This leaves her family wondering: “Where’d you go, Bernadette?”

Flight Rising: Goblin Familiars

Flight Rising is a game where players control a Lair full of dragons. Each dragon can be given a Familiar. It is sort of like a pet for the dragon. Players click on the Familiar every day for Treasure.

I have obtained the entire collection of the Goblin Familiars. All of them were part of the in-game holidays between June of 2016 and February of 2017. It is still possible to buy the Goblins from the Auction House.

All of the artwork in this post is copyright of Flight Rising.

WoW Classic: Friended

A friend of mine, whom I have played Dungeons & Dragons with, decided to give WoW Classic a try. He decided to play a Tauren Druid, a class that paired nicely with my Tauren Warrior.

I highly recommend playing WoW Classic with a friend. Doing so makes finishing quests easier, leveling up a bit faster, and is a lot of fun! In the screenshot above, my Warrior was level 6, and his Druid was level 3.

Neko Atsume: Pile of Leaves

A large pile of orange, red, and yellow leaves is sitting on a flat tree stump.

Neko Atsume is a game where you try and encourage cats to come visit your space. The way to attract the cats is to add stuff that they can play with.

Pile of Leaves costs 400 silver fish in the Neko Atsume store. The flavor text of this item says: Fall leaves sewn together to create a soft, warm pile. Now your cats can enjoy the fall all year round.

Dragon Mania Legends: Ironhide Dragons Collection

The Ironhide Dragons Collection is one of many collections of dragons that players can work on completing. The reward for completing this one is 6 tokens. I have absolutely no idea what these are used for.

Dragon Mania Legends is a game where players try and collect as many different types of dragons as possible. Dragons can fight other dragons, be bred to make new dragons, or hunt for Treasure.

Sims 4 – Mistakes Were Made

I picked up Sims 4 when Origin was offering it for free. To my surprise, it actually ran on a Mac! The only Sims game I’ve ever played previous to this one was Sim City. Obviously, there was going to be a learning curve as I figured out how to play Sims 4.

After messing around with the tutorial a little bit, I decided to just jump in and figure things out as I went along. This turned out to be a bad idea, especially since I started playing Sims 4 while having a really bad physical health day. Mistakes were made.

Book Reviews, non fiction 0 comments on Before the Fallout – by Diana Preston

Before the Fallout – by Diana Preston

Before the Fallout is filled with footnotes, old photos, a large index, and a glossary at the end. While parts of it do read like a narrative, the book is definitely not a work of fiction. It took me a while to read through this book, not because the information in it was difficult to process, but because there was so much detail to consider.

As such, this review is not going to cover absolutely everything that was in the book. Doing so would be tedious, and Diana Preston wrote it better than I could have. She has her sources cited in footnotes as well as in a section at the back of the book. It is an educationally enlightening read, and I learned some things that I did not know. That said, the book may be too academic for some readers.
