To all the losers (I say affectionately): keep your ears perky to hear about our next competition coming soon!
In other news, a new hobby store opened near me not long ago, and I’ve meant to check it out. Yesterday I finally did! I could barely control my heart rate while I walked towards the doors. Wow, they had a lot more stuff than I was expecting. Tons of little figurines that were completely overpriced. What the heck?! I’m not paying $15 for a cheap, half-inch Minecraft figure.
Also, they had a whole section of unicorn stuff. I didn’t realize until this week how unicorns are the animal craze of the year. Now that the dam has broke, all I keep hearing and seeing is unicorn stuff. I knew the craze had been creeping up, but its gone full crazy now. Starbucks even sold a unicorn drink for one day.
Have to admit, I kind of want some unicorn stuff. That led me down a rabbit hole on the internet and then I made the awesome decision I needed to do unicorn themed makeup. I wanted to be a feminine, pastel, twinkling half-girl, half-mythical creature. Right about then I started to have flashbacks to My Little Ponies and bronies.
I nearly fell over in my chair and clawed myself to the bathroom to begin and hopeful end this moment’s obsession with unicorns. I slathered on that makeup and turned myself into a freaking awesome unicorn themed lady. Well, half awesome. I did look a little weird.
I was totally feeling cool though. I waltzed, head high, into my bedroom towards the computer. You see, I’ve decided to be obsessed with Fortnite. However, I was still waiting for my new computer mouse that was scheduled to arrive the following day. All I had is an ancient trackball.
Well, with a face ready for war I decided to dive into Fortnite Battle Royale anyway. It was epic (haha get it…Epic Gaming…Fornite…yeah). Anyway, epic in how horrible I was. I mean, of course, I was. It’s been ages since I was scrabbling around an online shooter. Especially one that has been out for a while, with many well-practiced players looking to own a pathetic newb like me. Got to brush off the dust, I thought! No biggie, no none at all. I did not abuse my trackball!! I pinky promise? That dang thing kept sticking! STICKING!
Get this, my first game I floated down in the middle of nowhere. I spent most the time finding other people. Then decide to try to build something, you know, in the middle of a field. I get headshot mid build obviously. It. Was. Pathetic.
I started to question my intelligence at this point. I mean, should I get one of those helpers that come by to make sure I’m properly feeding myself each week? I pondered all this while sitting with my chickens.
Ahh, the feathered little dinosaurs. I really can’t help but think of raptors when I look at their eyes. “Clever girl,” I mumbled…alone, surrounded by chickens and covered in peculiar makeup. They hate being pet, so I chased one around for ten minutes and forced my love on it. Then I realized I was probably insane.
I’m not over the whole pastel and glitter “unicorn” thing. This weekend my plans include getting better at Fortnite and looking up unicorn stuff. I went ahead and made some mini unicorn cupcakes to celebrate the weekend.
Anyway, there are some gaming deals I wanted to clue you in on. Only the real special ones this week. For instance, a completely free game. F1 2015 is free, and not for much longer. Check it out here at Humble. It’s a Formula One racing game with mixed reviews.
Another freebie involves pre-ordering Infernium. If you do that at Humble, you will get Mind: Path of Thalamus for free. Infernium is 20% off, costing $20. It’s a non-linear survival horror. Mind: Oath of Thalamus is regularly $9. It’s a first-person puzzle game with okay reviews (75% on Metacritic and 6/10 on Steam). They are made by the same person.

The last deal is for PlayStation. You can get a 20% off code by watching a short video. You need a PSN account, then click this link to go to PlayStation Live. Sign into your account. On the side of the screen, you will see something that says “Quests.” Do the “MLB The Show 18 – 20% off PlayStation Store Quest”. As I said, you just watch a short video. Then you can claim the 20% off code to use when purchasing games!
Have a great weekend gaming!
