crossover_chick: gif with Doc and Marty trying to get out of being written into twisted AUs (Default)
Sorry for the lack of a post yesterday -- I spent pretty much my entire Saturday finishing up my room and shelves, and when I finally got to the website to update you all, I kept getting 504 Gateway timeout errors. Finally just gave up and kept watching OutsideXBox videos. As you do.

But yeah, Saturday turned into "Let's Finish This Room Day!" I wasn't expecting it to take so long, but -- well, I have a lot of stuff. Mostly a LOT of Minimates. Mom and I are pretty sure I own every BTTF one they ever made. And we ran into some delays too, such as:

-->Me trying to figure out where the heck to put all the old packaging (finally remembered "Oh hey I have drawers under my bed!" and stuffed them all in there -- SO MUCH FLOOR SPACE now, it's amazing)

-->My small Maudeline Everglot toy statue breaking when we moved it (her head's always been wobbly and falling out, but this time the head broke off the little neck stump you insert into the body! Cue Mom fiddling around with bits of pins and nail glue to force her head to go back on. Succeeded in the end, but what a bitch to pull off!)

-->Fixing my curtain rod (it was taped together because the dowel Mom picked was just a TINY bit too short to reach all the way -- we ended up cutting another rod and making a sort of sleeve to go over the short end and get it stabilized)

-->Running to Wal-Mart to pick up some poster putty for the Minimates (and a new window shade to replace a broken one in my room). If you're unfamiliar with poster putty, it's a putty, kind of feels like chewing gum, that you can roll into shapes and use to stick up posters to walls. Mom googled it and found people recommending it to hold Minimates in place. I can attest to its strength -- I have a ghost Minimates from one of my Ghostbuster sets hanging from a shelf CEILING.

But despite all this, and the fact we kept having to move shit to fit in more shit, we finally got it all put up! Here's my tumblr post with pictures! (It's easier to link you to that rather than deal with a hosting website.) I'm very proud of it all. :D Long Saturday, but good Saturday.

Of course, that means I had to spend today catching up on videos and such. Fortunately, I didn't have too much, but Helloween did post a couple of very long sets of Zelda and Secret of Mana. Good stuff, but hard to fit in! Darkwood also remains terrifying (Helloween died for the first time thanks to a savage man with a shadowy friend -- fortunately death isn't permanent in this game). . .

But not as terrifying as Twilight Fields in the Medical Pavilion in BioShock! D: I finally got a chance to go back and melt the ice there and pick up some of the goodies I missed (after finally properly holding off the horde in Langford's office -- died once, but there's a Vitachamber right inside, so. . .) -- but I wasn't expecting it to be so CREEPY! Especially in one bit where you can see a Dr. Grossman Splicer's shadow mutilating a corpse around a corner, so you head over with gun at the ready to get him -- and then it goes PITCH BLACK just as you reach the stairs at the corner, so you back off, and then the lights come back on, but they're flickering -- and the doctor's GONE. Nowhere to be found near that corpse. Fortunately, I was expecting an ambush, so when he showed up again out of a cold storage locker, I was prepared to kill him, but DAMN. That's the spookiest the game has ever been! Fort Frolic isn't much better -- just a few minutes into this "artiste's" domain, and already I'm on-edge. Bastard is creepy as hell, and knowing that I should expect some of his "statues" to still be alive doesn't help the fear factor. Yikes.

Well, on that lovely note, I really have to go to bed -- regular work week this week, bleh. Hope you guys had a good weekend! Night all, sleep tight!
