It's almost my Special Minute.

And my special minute is 10:18, because my birthday is 10/18. Most of you know that, but now the rest of you are informed and you can cherish that moment twice per day. :)

I'm tired of obsessing over whether my posts are Photography enough. This is my blog. I will post stuff here, and it won't always relate to photography. It's too hard to stick to certain themes, don't you think? Toooooo restrictive. Especially when I take way fewer photos in the winter months.

Guess what! My mom is coming to visit me. :D The last part of February is going to be packed, but it'll be good.

Someone's screencap of their Paradise Island game.

Lately I'm hooked on city building games, although I've reduced it to two at the moment (one stopped working correctly, so I uninstalled it). I'm playing Paradise Island and My Country. Both try to get me to pay them money, which I resent, but I just do everything the long way and play the free version. The thing is, I'd be willing to pay a little for a game up front. What I don't like is that they claim they are free, but then want to charge here and there for little tasks. Microtransactions, I guess they call them. There are lots of names. Anyway, if you know of any good city building games (with nice graphics) that don't try to take all my money, please do tell.

Did you notice they had Jennifer Garner writing on a chalk board in her class?
Who still uses chalk boards?

I rented the movie Valentine's Day tonight, because I was suddenly in the mood to watch something. I thought it was pretty good. Definitely a few little surprises and happy moments.

I used to have stronger feelings about Valentine's Day (in both directions, depending on what was going on in my life), but the older I get, the less interesting it becomes. I think that's true about me, too. :P

Do you have any Valentine's plans? Feelings about the holiday that you want to share? Memories?


  1. Who does use chalkboards anymore? Weird. I've never heard of city building games that aren't Sims. Hmm. And I like when you mix it up sometimes, so no worries. :)

    You aren't less interesting, by the way. I can't wait till you get here for your visit so we can both be so super exciting as we play speed-Yahtzee. I've got to brush up on my speed since playing mostly super-slow-help-them-with-their-math versions with the kids for a long time now. Still fun and good, but there's something about speed-Yahtzee that I can't get enough of.

  2. Thanks!

    Yes, I'd love some games. Speed Yahtzee sounds good, plus it proves how cool we are! I mean, you have COLORED DICE, for goodness sakes.

    I so rarely get to play games with people in the same room that it'll be a treat!

  3. Well, you know about our plans for Valentine's Day. Your Dad has always made special plans for this day. I think the only reason we weren't married on Valentine's Day is because we were both going to different schools and didn't want to wait until the following year. We usually do something special on our anniversary, too. Love, Mom

  4. Yes, colored dice rock. Thank you for them, by the way. :)

    S has National Park Yahtzee with park symbols. It's pretty cool, too. But no one has dice as cool as mine.

  5. You're not less interesting and neither is your blog! : )
