Theresa Who

I'm a lot of wildly disparate adjectives.

Today, let's go with voracious reader, gadget-phile, knitter, and entrepreneur.

I love sci fi, fantasy, urban fantasy, fairy tales in all shapes, colors, and forms, history, mythology, and gardening.

Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.

i volunteer a lego piece as the new symbol for autism. theyre not a piece missing from something, theyre just incredibly great and you can build a lot of things with them-- in fact, the more lego pieces you have, the better. unlike a puzzle piece, you dont need to "solve" legos. they come in thousands of different shapes and colors. and if you step on one, you will regret it. also legos are cool.

this is one of the most amazing asks i’ve ever received

in fact i was planning on drawing something for this but then i realized i can’t draw

I saw a bumper sticker this morning and was thinking how fucking insulting the puzzle piece was. This idea is fantastic.

I just got it.  It just hit me in the head like a brick in a sock.

Destiny is a love letter to all the old school arcade games.  The ships are straight out of Galaga and Asteroids.  The load screen is a call out to Tempest.  The overly simplistic missions where you do a few waves of mobs and then the boss?  Just like old school Phoenix or any of the games that originated the ‘boss’ trope.  The shiny characters in a story we don’t quite understand and that never gets explained?  That’s the ten second garbled intro that’s burned into the CRT. The finishing a mission and getting no loot at all because of the random number generator?  That’s the spiritual equivalent of the machine eating your quarter!

And wait, there’s more.  You spend hours grinding to get tokens to turn in for prizes!  Like the tokens or tickets you take to the counter for that big shiny plastic robot with the light on top that spins around! Only it’s a crappy plastic robot and it breaks in a week of playing with it, but that’s okay! Because next week?  We’ll have more tokens to turn in!

And even though the arcade smells like stale pizza and we know the games inside and out because we’ve played them a gazillion times, and the creepy guy at the ticket counter kinda makes our skin crawl?  We keep coming back again and again and again, because we’re still having fun, see?

That’s why I’m so frustrated with and yet still find myself playing Destiny.  Because they have a formula.  A very, very, very old formula, but one that deprived many of us the week’s laundry money.  And even worse, it makes me miss playing pinball.

I was re-alphabetizing our movies (because toddler) and long story short we’re watching Nightmare Before Christmas at the toddler’s request.

"Pumpking peese? Jack? Peese. Pumpking. Yes."

She goes from asking to politely but adamantly demanding very quickly.
