Friday Filler – Time to Take A Reality Check and Some Perspective

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

So, let’s start with the fact that if you are reading this, you own a padular/mobile device or computer of some sort, along with some type of data plan or WIFI associated with said device. As 2020 continues to throw us more curves than Henry Rowengartner in “Rookie of the Year,” things that we take for granted (like a daily dose of tapping) shouldn’t be on that list.

I realize that many folks play this “silly ‘lil game” to escape some of the realities of our everyday lives. I would be included in that group.  However, with the game being as simplified and EAsy as it has been the past 18+ months, it offers little respite. But, let’s be honest…as I implied…just having the choice to tap puts us in a category of “entitlement” that we very much take for granted.

I can’t/won’t get into politics here. I can’t/won’t discuss my current opinion of the “state of TSTO,” as both topics seem futile. As a nation…we could do with a whole hellofalotta less debate(s). Topics that should be discussed, rarely are. But, I digress…

So…instead…I am going to veer off course (what a surprise?) and talk about the fact that TSTO turned me on to the discovery of a new relationship…while cementing my allegiance to the community that is TSTOAddicts!

WDTCF – The Sunsphere

Well, it’s another day at Addicts and another where did THAT come from just for you.  As often happens, life imitates art.  I have friends I’ve made through this game from all over.  Some use certain characters as avatars and every time I see Otto or Kearney or Frink in my town, I think of them.  Even some of the buildings remind me of my buddies.  One that always reminds me of one of my pals is the Sunsphere.  He actually lives in that general vicinity and sees it all the time and I think it’s so cool that a piece of TSTO connects to real life for everyone blessed to be connected to this awesome guy.

WDTCF – Swanky Fish

Woo hoo!  I’m so stoked that EA gave us an episode tie-in.  Lots of cool Japanesey decorations and I couldn’t be more stoked.  If you didn’t know, I lived six years of my life in Okinawa, Japan so anything having to do with their culture make me smile so much.  Thanks EA!

For this WDTCF, I’d like to talk about the Swanky Fish.  I love sushi and probably eat it at least once a month.  When the Swanky Fish first became available for the “What Animated Women Want” promotional on April 8, 2013, I snatched it up right away.  90 donuts might be a bit but my town had to have a sushi restaurant.

I’m so thrilled it’s back!  It’s not very hard to figure out where it comes from as it came with an episode tie-in but I thought it’d be fun to discuss Season 24, Episode 17 and show some pics.  Go ahead and click if you agree. Continue reading

Weekend Update: December 22nd – December 28th

Wow, I can’t believe this year is almost to a close. So much has gone one. So much has changed. And here we are, still playing this amazing game.

With all the gift giving and receiving, it’s hard to keep up with all that went on in the TSTO Addicts world. Miss some posts? Looking to read a story again you saw earlier? Well here is your Weekend Update to help refresh all that went on this week. Let’s hop to it. 😉

WDTCF – Springfield Skating Rink

Well hello there holiday tapperinos!

Wookiee back with another where did THAT come from. You may have noticed I got all hip and shortened the words into a spiffy abbreviation. Cool, eh? As it seems that recently some of our ideas have been catching on in other blogs, we figured we’d do every one a favor and shorten it for future “borrowing”. Nothing says the holidays like gift giving, right? Since Bunny coined the phrase, I decided to go all military abbreviation crazy and kick things up a notch lol. Seriously though, I’m probably just too lazy to type the words. You know how I hate to type words.

So you ready for this round? You really want to know just where that Skating Rink comes from?  Well, before you all line up like Oliver begging for more, I’ll just get started. Besides, none of you really want to hear my Artful Dodger impression anyways.
