imagine making a whole new sideblog because you wanted to make a bbieal post but didn't want to feel like it was overtaking your main blog

(check out my previous sideblog announcement here)

I'm curious as to how the polls work so I'm making a test poll real quick (multiple choice in case you can't decide or you want to say your choice is scary)

Furby Connect gets its own option bc it's got a lot more design differences than Furbies between the 2012 and Furby Crystal eras (diff. ear rotations, that antenna thing, no faceplate, etc.)

Furby Boom and Furby Crystal may have different aesthetics but they're still part of the same series (Boom) and I'm not making a poll option for every Furb type because that's,,,, a lot ^^'' ,,,, (between the 2012-2014 era alone there's 3 adult types, and then ofc each era has its own babies minus Furby Connect so that's another 5 right there. that's excluding Furbacca, too)

Cutest Furby design?

thinking about my most recent tomodachi life baby,

her randomly picked name is sydney and her randomly generated face looks something like this:

which ultimately is an amazing face, though I have no clue why the brows are angled so heavily over the eyes?? but it's great. she's also bald atm so no idea what sort of hair she'd get (or even what colour, but that's either brown or red). I just know it was absolutely hilarious when the miis turned her to face me and that expression was staring back

one of my miis is permanently short now (for the indefinite future anyways) because they requested a kid-o-matic a while ago but the age-o-matic didn't make them regrow

I, what, why

I have no idea how to google for this since the concept of long vowel sounds is a thing and language exists but in Tomodachi Collection there was a symbol you could use that would lengthen the sound of a syllable without repeating it (e.g. saying "oooooo" instead of "o o o o o o" ) and I don't know if it's possible in Tomodachi Life, which is disappointing because one of the things I did in TC was make a mii loosely based off a furby that actually spoke furbish, but that's trickier to do in TL because it's harder to balance written accuracy with pronounced accuracy (e.g. "noo-loo" {happy}, which TL wanted to say as "no o lo o" iirc, but that was easy to solve)

maybe one day I'll solve this mystery, but unless I can find something I'll just have to deal with it I guess ^^''

I got Tomodachi Life recently (last night actually) and already it's... something :p

  1. within an hour or two of starting, a Mii fell in love with my Mii. they got rejected- and then because that was the first confession on the island, there was the funny situation of that Mii reporting the news flash of the fairground thingy being built by the Mii who rejected them
  2. a couple Miis asked for help locating a lost item. the same Mii found both items
  3. my Mii wrote their friend a note asking her to meet them on the roof. upon meeting, my Mii asked 'What do you think of Iccn? What? No I'm not them.'
  4. I had tried to recreate Miis from my TC island so I could keep playing with them. Berry, one of my Miis that had a reputation for being rejected, got rejected on the 2nd day.

update on #3- someone else wrote that Mii a letter and asked her if he could crash at her house because his parents were coming over. the Mii who wrote the letter is a Confident Go-Getter, so it's funnier in a way

so far in 2021 I've played minesweeper daily for like, hours at a time

and honestly microsoft made a mistake removing it from windows, it's such a simple but good little game. it can be a bit challenging, and maybe rather confusing to some players, but dang it really be just click squares and flag mines with colourful numbers as your hint sistem

I may've missed the countdown to new year's (happy new years btw!) but I feel like I made up for it by absolutely messing up my noise horn thingy somehow so that instead of the higher-pitched "bweeeeee!" you normally get, I got what sounded like "a foghorn" or "like it has Laryngitis" which, especially in contrast to literally everyone else's party horn, made everyone laugh because it was just such a low noise

sometimes getting sniffed by my one cat is like getting a vibe check because if he's in a good mood you might get a nuzzle, or if he's more curious/neutral you might get a "stinky" face
`

I know cats got a sensory organ at the top of their mouth and all that and so when cats do that they're very likely just getting a better smell, but with how Junior seems to like laying on stuff with the express purpose of smelling good the expression just kinda lends itself to the joke that you are Smelly and he is Opposed

reset my win10 and so far it seems to be behaving? which is good, means one less trip to the shop- that, and my tower would finally be completely set up properly! (it's literally just a matter of if it's still blue screening, linux was unharmed :p)
`

also if I liked/unliked a post a bunch whilst waiting for win10 to finish up I'm sorry but my phone is old and laggy so I couldn't tell if I even hit the button, let alone if the like went through ^^''

edit: spoke too soon, but win10 seems better at least so I dunno ¯(ツ)

scared bc I'm resetting Win10 rn and dunno if that'll make it worse than BSOD'ing 1-2 times per session already was

this computer is a pain and it's because windows threw numerous fits during its life- hope it doesn't take down linux in the process..

I just realised I've lost my mod podge spray. I'm pretty sure I couldn't use it anyways today since it's snowing, but that's unfortunate : must've lost it when I rearranged my room a long while back....

ah well, it'll turn up I'm sure ^^'' I keep it in my room so it definitely hadn't gone far

I'm blind my mod podge has been in the corner this whole time

recently remembered my paper snowflake collection I made years ago during school when I had some free time. 've kept them pressed in an old composition book to try to preserve them :]

fun fact: 4 of them are identical bc I was trying to make a bigger snowflake but accidentally cut it wrong and made 4 smaller flakes

TIL I accidentally gave one of my cats an attack phrase

I discovered this after my sister accidentally made him attack a chair because she didn't know he apparently associates a specific noise with playtime and so he just instantly looks for something to pounce... such as the back of chairs :p

so I've been using my laptop for a little while now as my computer's in the shop and one of the programs I got running is Steam

what I didn't realise is that since Steam auto-runs on my desktop's Win10, is that I'd be able to see if it's online thanks to remote play??

so I'm just sitting here doing whatever when I see my computer's friendly name pop up and now I'm just here like ':0 o hello'

icantchoosenames

well r.i.p 'DESKTOP-KQ1UMRA'

my computer's friendly name ended up different again after Win10 had to be downgraded to be re-upgraded back into Win10 so it would cooperate?? so, that's fun :p
`

I didn't exactly post about when my computer left, it seems, but it's back now. had to try and deal with a *little issue* win10 was having where it bluescreened like 18 times in the span of... what was it, 3-4 months? not only that but it was pmuch witholding linux from me by making me boot into windows first before I could even load linux.... as well as the entire SSD apparently, if that downgrade thing is anything to go by... win10 was surprisingly antagonistic ^^''

update: win10 still being a jerk and witholding linux from me.

I was gonna make a cursed post on one of my sideblogs but then I got sidetracked yet again by remembering something else that may also be kinda cursed? (put under cut both for length and for eye-contact reasons)


similar facial energy and noses. why do they have very similar noses. admittedly it's not quite the same as Baldi's is much thinner at the top but still

I think what's even worse is that even in plush form Baldi can't escape this fate of just sharing a nose with someone because in plush form it just looks exactly like Spinach's nose

the irony that Baldi, a man originating from a comic where one of his traits is "having a crazy big appetite for food!" (source: deleted Baldimore comic twitter desc.) and then he just shares a nose, no matter what, with one of the teachers from dhmis5 is something that isn't lost on me

creative inspiration be like: *spends 45 minutes drawing icons for something only to discover that not only is it too big but it's also one pixel longer in one direction*

but then I made smaller icons, and it was good :]
