In the last edition of DID (Deigning In Downtime), I mentioned a handful of my favorite rituals, some regarding characters that I wanted to keep in the same place for eternity.
There are a couple of reasons I do this. First, I like how they look, and that they make me happy for some reason I have made up, as part of the rituals. But, over time and function, they have become part of the decorations…the style that gives my town unique flavor.
But, a couple of these take real planning…and a bit of luck…and sometimes a lot of patience (or stubbornness…you choose).

It’s amazing. Really amazing. I don’t feel like I’m a bona-fide senior citizen, even though the math is clearly stating it to be so. When you are officially on the Government dole, like I will be in a couple of days, you have to look back at your life and wonder, “Hey…how did I get here?”
But, then…you find yourself starting to whine about things that even the most learned Gen-EXers and Millennials would simply ignore, mostly because they have no freakin’ clue what I am talking about.
It happened again in the past few days. A handful of stuff in our game that made me say, “Holyfreakinshirt! Don’t they know nothin’ about nothin’???”
One was a matter of scale, again…but also the realization that most people wouldn’t have a clue about what I LIKED about the thing that was way too small. (I know…that sounded like a set up to a dirty joke).
The other had to do with EA besmirching a game I love, along with one of it’s most hallowed, legendary, players.
And, how they missed a chance to do something pretty cool for the New Year…that would help mark a 50th anniversary of a year that would make this one seem like a cakewalk (even though the cake probably has a few contraband ingredients that would make it less than appetizing for all but true cake-a-holics).
I’m gonna be 65 on New Year’s Day. So…let me whine a bit. I’m officially old. Get off my lawn! Nah…it’s OK. You can come on the lawn if you bring cake.
But man…that aircraft carrier really gets me going!
