I’m a little pissed at Etsy today (see this article from The Mary Sue for reasons), so I’m skipping Etsy Tuesday today. Also because I’m too poor right now (why, car, why?!) so I don’t want to foray onto the site and risk NEEDING TO SPEND MONIES.
So, in place of Etsy Tuesday, here’s a list of my current five favorite things. (But it’s getting close to the end of the semester, so spare time to do them in seems like a beautiful dream).
I played Pandemic for the first time during International Tabletop Day at The Wandering Dragon in Plainfield, IL. Basically, I’m hooked. The gentleman who taught me to play actually runs Pandemic tournaments, so I may need to groom a team and then kick everyone’s asses.
2) The Lizzie Bennet Diaries
This is an excellent and entertaining adaptation of Pride and Prejudice into a series of web diaries. They just ended, but I only recently started watching so I’m still on a LBD kick. I watched the entire series in about 48 hours. I could not stop. Just couldn’t. I didn’t get any work done. I did drink a fair amount, though. Here’s a link to the first video.
3) Left 4 Dead on Steam
Seriously. I’ve just gotten back into playing online and I don’t remember why I left. No, wait, I do–jerky guy gamers, who disparaged me for being a girl even though I was playing better than they were. Actually, it was probably because I play better than they do. Anyway, nowadays I only play with friends, which makes the whole thing more enjoyable. My user name is Tabloid, if anyone’s interested in joining me.
4) Vaginal Fantasy on Geek and Sundry
Vaginal Fantasy is a monthly Sci-Fi/Fantasy Romance book club hosted by Felicia Day, Bonnie Burton, Kiala Kazbee and Veronica Belmont. The ladies host a Google Hangout once a month where they discuss the books (and everyone else jabbers like mad in the comments/the live stream feed/Twitter). What’s really great about it, though, is the community on Goodreads. I suggest you check it out. I’m also currently reading this month’s main pick, Ghost Planet by Sharon Lynn Fisher, and enjoying it a lot (though sometimes I’ve just been like “Whaaaat?”).
5) Frisbee Golf
GUYS IT’S SO NICE OUTSIDE. I MUST ENJOY IT WHILE I CAN. EVEN IN 40MPH WINDS WHICH MAKES FROLFING VERY DIFFICULT BUT SOMEHOW MORE FUN.
I have a course about fifty yards away from my apartment so, yeah, I’ve been spending a lot of time there.
