Shipping

No, I don’t want to stat building boats, or start sailing…I get all of the motion sicknesses…That would be a VERY bad idea!

Shipping” meaning by Wikipedia:

initially derived from the word relationship, is the desire by fans for two or more people, either real-life people or fictional characters (in film or literature) to be in a relationship, romantic or otherwise. It is considered a general term for fans’ emotional involvement with the ongoing development of a relationship in a work of fiction. Shipping often takes the form of creative works, including fanfiction and fan art, most often published on the internet.

 Shipping in the nerd type world, to break it down, is when you have two favourite people who you see as a couple. These can included people from the book, or sometimes you can even cross couple from different fandom and from completely different genres.

Some couple even get their own names, when you combine the two characters names together.

Except for brother and sister…or brother and brother, sister and sister, or parental with child…That’s just gross…Except in a purely familial way. 

So, for example, some of my favourite “shipping” characters are:

  • Thorin Oakenshield and Morgana from “Merlin”.
  • Tessa Gray and Will from the Infernal Devices.
  • Mary and Gideon from Reign (I still like Francis, but Gideon seems a little more “grown up”)

Lets Share: Do you “ship” any couples? Even ones we may have not thought of before. 

What’s your favourite?

With the release of the new Nintendo switch (which roughly around $300, depending where you live). It got me thinking about consoles in general and what people prefer playing their games on.

Nintendo hooked me as a kid. Can the switch win over my son? CNet.com/au

 I mainly play on my PC and it isn’t really a gaming laptop either (those can easily cost upwards of $2000).It does the job though. Sometimes I think of getting another laptop so I can just have games on it and nothing else.

Then there’s my xbox 360 and I love it! I got it as a xbox 360 bundle and as I got it in a special Star Wars bundle. the console i R2D2 and the controller is C3PO. It’s great! It’s one of the reasons I still have not gotten an xbox 360 one, because I love the one that I have now.

Marathons…The Fun Type! =D

I am just going to jump right and ask you all…

What is your favourite movie or tv type marathon and what do you do while you’re “running” through whatever it is you are watching?

So yes, this post is not a about a running type marathon but about what movie (or television) marathons you have ever participated in and I have a whole heap of questions, so lets start chatting!

Did you do the marathon by yourself?

Did you do it with others?

Was it for a cause?

The Rage Within

You might have heard about “nerd rage” or “gamer rage”. It usually describes when someone is playing a game (duh) and it can be any kind of game, and sometimes, and some will claim, through no fault of their own. They will inexplicably get angry. This can be for a variety of reasons.

  • Cheaters or Cheating…Sometimes this seems to happen to some people all the time.
  • Bugs or Glitches within the game.
  • Someone who wins may have done so by cheating or by coming in a draw with you, but they go ahead and claim ultimate victory. Shutting you down.
  • Connection Interruption/s.
  • Some just can’t control their anger.
  • Backseat Gamers.
  • You just really don’t know to play the game

There are two games that make me “Rage” and it’s really funny when I tell people because they are shocked. Mainly because the two games that I rage are, aren’t really that intense or really action driven…But they can just be so annoying!

The first that one drives me completely crazy is this game called “Settlers“. My partner loves it and I completely loathe it. I usually play it because I feel bad if my partners has had a bad day and I feel like I should. In fact this year my partner made a promise to me that he can only ask me 12 times a year to play it with him. I just hate it because it literally takes hours to play, the game is notorious for crashing, because it’s so old. Somehow even though we all start from the beginning, the computer players seems to be just so advanced. They start attacking, in an advanced age, right from the beginning.

The other is a well more known game “The Sims“.  I know…Odd right? Probably don’t hear about people raging too much with The Sims, but sometimes it just drives me insane. I think it might be such my computer, but it has a lot of bugs and glitches that are really annoying. Sometimes during a party, they will just suddenly freeze and not do anything, and there’s the whole thing of standing in front of the fridge so no one can cook anything. I always have to make sure that I have at least two people from the household at the parties, so one of them call people away from the fridge. So they can make the birthday cake and age up.

Are there any games that make you rage? Especially the unexpected ones!

Have a cup of tea with me?

Everyone who read my Blog a bit will know how obsessed I am with Wild Earth #safarilive live stream dream. Mainly taken place in Djuma within the Sabi Sands. Now they’ve started selling merchandise and I finally got my hands on a piece of it!

2017-01-31-22-08-49

It is my own Safari Live mug/cup and I couldn’t be happier. I got in a greyish colour, because I anticipate drinking lots of tea and coffee and there will be lots of dredge marks on it. I have a couple of white cups and they just look messy after a while.

The only question that I have remaining is which book do I read while sipping from my new glorious cup? The front runner is the book that I have been reading the most at the moment and that is “Doctor Who: The Shakespeare Notebooks”. It’s the one I’ve been reading the most, but I really want to get started on Jodi Picoult “Small Great Things“. I’ve had it since Christmas and I haven’t even started it, I’ve had so many others from Christmas as well. Then there’s the new books I just got this week from Ellen Dugan called “Book of Witchery: Spells,Charms and Correspondences for every day of the week”.

I’ll guess you’ll just have to see and wait!

MMO and Me

Uploaded by:AngryJoeShow

This video is really funny, because I play this game and this video was made 4 years ago. So even though a lot of this video is of high praises. A lot of this guys issues with the game has now been fixed.

The game that this gentleman is talking about is called Guild Wars 2 and it is probably my favourite game at the moment. I am playing it at least for an hour pretty much every single day/night. The format of the game is MMO.

MMO stands for Massively Mutilplayer Online (MMO) Game. Which means that you can play with all sorts of people from different regions. Unlike multiplayer games you don’t necessarily have to have a friends list to play with others. Depending on the popularity, and the capability, of the game, you can easily have hundreds if not thousands of people playing at the same time. They are generally not invisible players either, you can easily see them as they run pass you.

The most well-known MMO is probably World of Warcraft, South Park even made an episode based on the game. However, I have never actually played WoW. The two that I mainly play are Guild Wars 2, as mentioned before, I am on there pretty much every day. I used to also play Warhammer Online, and I actually really loved it! However, they discontinued in 2013. Warhammer online is based from the Warhammer games made by Games Workshop table top game. Which was funny because I was dating someone at the time, which is how I was introduced to the game, but I find the actual table top game really boring.

If you play Guild Wars 2, please comment below and we can totally be friends!

Appreciate Yourself More!

Jasmine,Appreciate.png

In a world where we have so many young people suffering from self-esteem issues. It was, too me anyways, really great to see someone realise how totally gorgeous they look. However, the comments about this girl were horrible. I just don’t get it. You just cannot win these days. There seems to be an “acceptable” level loving on oneself, and I just think it’s a little ridiculous. If more people appreciated and loved on themselves a little more, we’d have a lot more happier people. A lot less problems too I would be willingly to bet.

Just remember when someone is appreciating themselves, it might be the only day that year that they actually feel good about themselves. So don’t bring them down, because really it’s your issues, not theirs. As long as their not only about their looks, and they are just beautiful on the inside, what’s really the problem?
