To take each portion of my header there in turn:

-->Boots: This was the main object of today's ADVENTURE out driving. First we went to Marshall's, but their shoe section proved to be almost entirely cleaned out. We found a couple of pairs, but they were just a little too cramped for me. So I drove up to DSW in Warwick (avoiding a number of crazies on the road) and we hit the clearance racks. Found a really nice and soft pair for about $56 after the markdown. :) So I'm finally set for any upcoming winter weather (which is good, because it was a) super-cold today and b) just snowed, looking outside!).

-->Fabric: After that was a trip down to Wal-Mart so we could pick up some baking essentials (butter & sugar), plus some fabric and sundries for a project Mom's doing for her sister. (I was going to suggest stopping by Newbury's, but the traffic was horrible, and after some idiot nearly pulled into the side of me while I was pulling out of DSW, I decided "I can wait on any BTTF comics.") Most everything we got all right, but we must have waited like twenty minutes at that fabric-cutting counter for someone to come help us. And when someone DID appear, their handheld scanner first had a dead battery, then refused to boot up properly. -.- Not how I wanted to spend my Saturday afternoon, honestly. But we got it done eventually, and I got a few new pairs of socks too, so there's that.

-->Toddlers: While I didn't play Sims 4 today, I did end up making a discovery about it while browsing YouTube -- toddlers have been readded to the game! They're part of the latest patch. I've always had mixed feelings on the little hellions, but I know they were super-important to just about everybody, so I'm glad they're back. (And hey, perhaps just in time for my first Sim kid to appear! We'll see.)

-->Barite: I FINALLY GOT THIS FUCKING DRAGON IN DRAGONVALE

DESPITE ALL THE CRASHES, ALL MY AGING EQUIPMENT, ALL THE FALSE POSITIVES THAT WERE DAMN OLYMPUS DRAGONS

IT IS MINE

AND TOMORROW MY DRAGONARIUM WILL BREATHE FIRE

UNLESS THEY SUDDENLY RELEASE ANOTHER NEW DRAGON

IN WHICH CASE I WILL CRY

(not really but I will be super-frustrated)

(but yessss finally)

Other items of interest include:

-->Finishing up Chapter 10 of "Remembering You!" On a really sweet note too, awww. :) Glad to have that one wrestled down

-->Playing a bit of Vampire: The Masquerade -- Bloodlines -- Harry has FINALLY made it to the actual Nosferatu lair! Took some doing, and nearly getting killed by one of those spider creations -- luckily I managed to avoid direct combat with any of the others. Hell, I managed to cheese two by getting into a crouching position nearby and shooting them from where they JUST couldn't quite see me and start charging. SO glad to have that damn bit over with. Harry's parked outside Mitnick's for now so he can talk to everybody and earn new quests. And then I think he's probably going to go looking for a shower. Ugh.

-->Caught up on my tumblr -- didn't make my intended Song Saturday post for the day, but found some good music-related stuff on my dash, so I just reblogged that instead. Intended song can be for next week!

-->Watched Helloween play the demo of Tales of Berseria (he enjoyed himself -- I'm not sure what to make of it, but if he's happy, I'm happy) and take on a boss in Dead Space (space pooper with tentacles! Hells died once but otherwise did well clearing out the infestation of evil flesh from everything). There was also a Fun With Shorts about kids in a tumbling club, which is as boring as you think it would be without riffing. :P So that was fun.

-->Rearranged my Reading Music playlist a bit and added some Portal tracks. This thing is getting huge, and that's the way I like it. :P

Okay, now that I've managed some actual PRODUCTIVE time, let's see if I can keep the streak going with some work on The Valice Multiverse. Night all!
