Happy Friday indeed
Unfortunately, Brother Lifa wasn't here to review it, but we're left with the fond memory of his first impression: "I wanna sew my asshole shut so it stays with me forever"
We got into Villanous pretty heavy. It's REALLY fun.
There was a group I joined for a dungeon, and noticed someone in the chat was saying they didn't understand what was being said. Eventually, they said they were a Chinese player, trying to learn English through playing with English speakers. That was so cool I thought, because I'm studying to learn Chinese! So we bonded through that. Got to learn about where they lived and interests, etc. I even thought it was kind of funny/endearing when they asked me if I was white lol. It's refreshing to talk to foreign peeps because they're more straightforward.
And then, we got into traveling- I mentioned that my partner is Taiwanese and he asked what that mess of symbols were. Confused, I asked him to reiterate, he said he couldn't see the word after "my partner is ......" I couldn't believe it- kind of ;
This came to me as a surprise. I mean, it's not surprising, but seeing it first hand as opposed to hearing about it just hit different. Chicken's nationality is censored in China and it just... like, idk how hard I wanna roll my eyes back because they might just get stuck that way probably forever.
I'll also mention that his pet was named after a political figure that made everyone in the group laugh. And we later ran into another player who also named their pet after another political figure. And um, it was too funny to not capture.
Everything was going really well, we were leveling and knocking quests out and enjoying the content. Until he said, "it feels like I'm in love again"
TLDR: Told him that can't happen, logged out, unfriended him and that was that. I was bummed, but I'm over it. Was fun tho.
Did Chicken know about him? duh
But what I enjoy quite a bit is that every now and then, I'll run into some super random lols
Speaking of random, Chicken impulse bought an espresso machine. Because "you miss work."
He got triggered while simultaneously reveling in the industrial design on the plug.
I'm rusty, but it was cute. The idea of having our own little espresso station at home is just... so.. omg it's so cute uwu
Also our plants are groowwiing. I finally took the venus fly trap out of its bottle and planted it. Her name is Meemers. And I'm so looking forward to letting her eat all of the piece of shit insects I catch trying to eat my petunias when I leave them outside next summer.
HAVE YOU EVER HAD AN ADJUSTMENT!?
Long story short, I got a groupon for an adjustment because my back/neck/shoulders are all kinds of shit from working and gaming setup. So I went to this place, they were super nice but essentially didn't help and bruised my spine. I'm small, and what he did was too pro. So, I went to this other place that Chicken went to when I got him a groupon a while back. Turns out, the place he had gone to is frequented by a lot of people from work! And it's like... really good. So, I got a groupon lol to go to that place. It was for 2 adjustments and one massage.
My last appointment is next week, and I decided to just get treatment there for another 6 months. YAY!
ANIME TUESDAY was actually an excuse to eat, drink, and play more Villanous.
Our little coffee station is so cyoo omg
That pumpkin spice tho.... mmm! So yummyyyyyy :D
And just for funsies, Chicken wanted to try some dark Kona coffee. We've had Kona before in Hawai'i. Super yummy. Now we can have it brewed or in espresso drinks eeeeee! ^_^
I've gotten into the habit of publishing my posts on Thursday nights when midnight hits. It's technically Friday... so it counts as a Friday publish. But sometimes I don't, because things happen. My goal was to publish every friday. I'm still going to do so, but this is why I didn't last night.
And it's different every time! Getting all the expansions was the best idea ever because part of the fun in it is deciding which villain you wanna play, and then learning their kit. If someone else plays a villain that you've played before, you can kinda have the upper hand if you remember how they play. But there are so many villains with different kits that it gets jumbled and and and and... it's like... it's just crazy. And fun. I love it.
While listening to Disney songs, Homdre suggested we come up with a drink named Mufasa Mufasa so that when you get it, you say the name, take a sip of it, and it makes you shudder.
Disney and Vodka:
We haven't watched it, and I didn't know about the Chi thing. And yeah that's pretty shit. Because she got good by her own merit in the animation as opposed to just being born with some magic force shit? that would otherwise render her incapable of training with the men in the army if she wasn't born with it? PRETTY WHACK IF YOU ASK ME.
Homdre has a lot of opinions about what's good and not good that are just generally hilarious tangents.
And then the special lights came on, and then we were all tired lol. Uncle Vodka made them dance too much.
The burrito fairy showed up. He tends to show up with breakfast burritos for us the next morning, it's a total mystery. I'm beginning to suspect Lifa. This evening, he brought Carl's Jr. The double agent!
LATE POST IS LATE. But all is well. Nyl texted me asking if I had gotten anything this year from Michael's for my spooky stuff because everything was already on sale. Sooooooooooooo.... after Chicken and I stopped by campus for something, we went to Michael's.
And now it's Friday evening. The guys are downstairs watching Food Wars eating Carl's Jr.
Tomorrow marks the 3 year anniversary of Chicken and I as romantic partners. It's not a super long time, but it's comfortable. There's a lot I want to say, but frankly don't feel that I need to. Everything has been incredible, he makes me happy, we're chillin, focused on our goals, supporting each other, and that's the TLDR ^_^
and wear a mask while you're at it :D
