Didn't make gyoza this weekend. It's actually been a lot busier than I thought, and dinner has been taken care of every day so far. I guess it'll just have to wait until next week. :(

So, good news, got my new printer and set it up yesterday! It's amaaaaaazing, and I'm in the process of scanning all my photo negatives and will upload some of them to my deviantart account which I will be linking to later. That way my giant blog following can see all my pretty pictures. (haha, ya right...)

Also got Corel Painter 12 yesterday, hooray! Going to fiddle around with that today, and see how well my tablet works with it. (probably wonderfully) Can't wait to experiment with it!

More news: I'm actually considering getting The Sims 3 Generations expansion. I probably won't get it right when it's released, but after a while I might purchase it. I just don't like skipping expansions, even if there's stuff in the expansion that I don't like. I can usually ignore some aspects quite well. What I'm really waiting for is the Pets expansion. I will NOT be happy until I have that game. While waiting for it though, I might start a "legacy" game, although, I won't be blogging about it in the sense that I tried to last time. It was so much fun doing the story like style, but I just don't have the time. I'll just be posting progress every now and then I think, and talking about my family and silly things that happened in the game.

And here's the trailer for the Pets expansion:


  1. I've thought about getting Sims 3, but then again, I have decidedly chosen not to. It's one of those love-hate sort of things. On the one hand, it's neat how you can create families and build houses, and live vicariously through your sims; yet, it wastes a lot of time, and if you don't have an amazing computer takes forever to load eating away more of your precious time.

    The real end-all for the Sims with me was when I got the Sims 2 and all the expansion packs and went to play it, but due to everything it had to load, it took ages... just forever.

    The Sims 3 has kind of addressed this issue by making everything load before you start the game, but I imagine my RAM won't see it as such a good thing.

  2. Ya the loading issue is still a problem for a lot of people, just simply because there's so much content, and the slightly older computers don't handle it all that well. Luckily I have a pretty darn good computer so everything runs great. ^^
