Friday Filler – Optimism -VS- Pragmatism

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

Ah…another week of insanity. But, we aren’t going to go there.  The fact is, these days, you can’t even tell where “there” is, let alone actually “go there.”

Like so many things in life, it seems that those who are mostly optimistic have a life that is simply easier, and perhaps even beneficial to living longer.

I do wish that I had the capacity to be more of a “Bliss Ninny,” in life.  I think I WOULD be happier if I could ignore most of what goes on around me. But, I’m not. So I can’t. And because of that, I am branded as “cranky.”

Where do YOU fall in this debate?  Let’s take a little Pop-Quiz to find out…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, no break for the Tappers, as it’s back-to-back mini-events in TSTO…not too shabby. Yesterday Cthulhu’s Revenge launched in Springfield, in what appears to be a mini-event precursor to Halloween!  Something to whet the appetite for what may be ahead in our games…at least we hope!

Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes.  For each of the parts of the Cthulhu’s Revenge questline, you’ll have to earn  via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.

So let’s take a look at the final prize, Cthulhu…
