fluffy the videogame designer? ()

by fluffy at 7:52 PM
Every night for the past several days I've had a dream about a video game I'd like to do, preferrably with the help of others (no way in hell I could do any of them on my own).

So, here's some of them. Please don't rip me off. (Consider hiring me as an actual game designer though! I'll work much cheaper than that Shigeru Miyamoto guy! And I can actually program and make actual game art and music and so on! That's, like, a lot more than Miyamoto-san!)

I dreamt I was at a dinner party. George W. Bush was there.

Damn you to hell.

You and your indoor grill.

Vodka-Pickled Cherries ()

by fluffy at 11:23 PM
Little balls of vodka, with the texture and just the slightest hint of cherry.

They're easy to make. Just get a jar of maraschino cherries, use the juice for something (probably a mixed drink of some sort), realize that they need to be kept in liquid or else they'll go fungal, decide that vodka would work well to preserve them, then forget about them for a month, and wonder why they taste funny when you use them in a Shirley Temple.

Whoa ()

There's a number of products I see every time I go to the grocery store which disturb me for various reasons.

Local grocery store conspiracy? ()

by fluffy at 6:04 PM
I mentioned not too long ago that the pita bread I bought on Friday was already mouldy on Saturday. What I didn't mention was that the expiration date was also for Saturday.

I also didn't mention that there is something majorly wrong with all of the stuff I bought on Friday.

I had a dream ()

by fluffy at 9:09 PM
Actually, this morning before I woke up I had a dream. I'd forgotten about it until now.

It was rather silly, but most dreams are, and they're just the random dump of a bored brain, so I'll avoid making more out of it than necessary.

Energy Drinks: A Guide ()

by fluffy at 2:50 AM
Okay, so as you may or may not know, set out to do the impossible and write my entire thesis this weekend.

As such, I stocked up on so-called "energy drinks," and am now fairly familiar with many flavors of them, which is possibly a big part of why I'm already so far along.

Worst burrito ever ()

by fluffy at 12:58 PM
At Amasita's, they make their own tortillas on the spot. Everything's usually fresh and warm and yummy. But today all of their burrito tortillas are stale and crunchy, and this burrito is an un-yummy mess.

Men are from Mars,
And women from Venus
Even the ones who were
Born with a penis

Switching the switch ()

by fluffy at 12:26 PM
After a recent heated discussion on the Apple-X11 mailinglist, someone emailed me privately to ask me why I run MacOS X if I dislike the limitations of the UI so much. My response was that I like the hardware and I like the OS, and there's a few apps I use in OSX which have no Linux equivalent.

My usage patterns of OSX is where I primarily run X11 applications (badly) but then have to put up with doing this under an environment it's not suited to (Quartz).

So, I've been thinking about going the other way around and running MacOnLinux under LinuxPPC.

Update

I've decided to just go back to XDarwin and stick with OSX.2, thanks to a few private emails and some comments on the Kuro5hin version of this entry.
