open your eyes;
okay so Ami asked for the recipe, and so, here it is. IDK how well it'll turn out since I've been the only person in the family to ever recreate the bread to taste exactly like my mother's, but if you follow my instructions correctly you should be fine.

Sharon's Pumpkin Bread

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon

Beat the eggs. Add sugar and vegetable oil, mix well with hand mixer. sift dry ingredients (flour, salt, salt, baking soda, cinnamon. make sure the cinnamon is looking well-distributed throughout the mix) add dry ingredients to mix, a little at a time while mixing with the mixer. I like to fold the batter around the flour to try and cut down on the spray. Add pumpkin and blend well. The color you should get should be just slightly orange. if it's too orange or too tan you're doin it wrong.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. put bread into a greased/floured pan, and bake for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes check it with a knife, if it still comes out gooey, keep baking in five minute intervals until it comes out clean. The bread when it's done should be a really nice orange-brown color.

I'd include pictures but I'm lazy. The end result though should be a really moist fluffy bread which is om nom nom good. My stepmom likes to eat it with cream cheese, and you can also make a cream cheese frosting with it which tastes good, too.

two sides of a coin;
okay costume!

(also I ended up coming home. stupid contacts were hurting my eyes and I was getting tired besides. I HAVE OBVIOUSLY SOBERED UP.)

omg nurse under hereCollapse )

Yeah so I had fun. up until the end when I got kind of bored, but that's what happens. I somehow got sandwiched in between the two most boring people at the party so yeah. XD

I got a lot of compliments on my costume, so that was great. Huge ego boost when people were all like "BEST COSTUME I'VE EVER SEEN" and a few people actually recognized I was a nurse from Silent Hill, so that was cool.

I actually had a lot of fun wearing it. Even if I've got splochy marks on my skin and my pores are going to be traumatized for the next few days.

wtf phone in a locker;
So I forgot to post these the other day, but I just remembered now thanks to discussing the fact that in the event of demon uprising/zombies, me and GG are fucked, respectively.

Anyway for those of you who don't know, I live in Maine. Maine is also the alleged (alleged in they all BUT say it) location of Silent Hill.

Granted that SH is made by Japanese dudes who have likely never been to Maine, but they still manage to get the feeling of the architecture and geographical look down. As I will demonstrate with these pictures I took on a very foggy commute to work! :D Sometime I'll get better shots around town when it's foggy.

This town will eventually take meCollapse )

So I've been making icons of Chris on request of Brit, and I noticed something.

cut to save your flistsCollapse )

now, the facial meshes are really similar, to the point where I'd assume they probably used the same basic skeleton for the characters. Honestly, doesn't surprise me. It cuts corners, and it's a little cheap, sure, but when you're making games time is money.

What DOES surprise me, is that it's kind of obvious that they used the same mesh. I mean. the facial shape is fairly similar, the striking thing being the nose and the brows. Then of course there's the stub but that's not so much a mesh thing than it is a skin thing.

SO clearly the next Resident Evil game is getting tied into Devil May Cry. Where it is revealed that the Redfields are, in fact, descendants of Sparda. (which explains Chris's epic fail and the overall Redfield Effect that follows the siblings wherever they go.)

she's a lady woah woah woah;
Alison started it, Kitty fed the fire, etc etc. I feel like I've had a crappy enough month to warrant this though, dammit.

Do you ever want to make an entry that says "LOVE ME, I FEEL LIKE CRAP," but that's kind of not a good thing to do because it's attention whoring?

... Well. I don't care right now.

LOVE ME GUYS. I will do my best to love you in return. I WILL NOT TELL YOU HOW I PLAN TO DO THIS, but I think it would be nice for everyone to have some love right now. You can even take this as a MEME and go attention whore in your own journals. Switch it up, make it a thing where people give you new icons, or write you fic, or bring their RP characters in to be obnoxious. WHATEVER MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER.

bang bang;
I don't think I got any sleep last night. It's fucking hard to, with all that moaning and groaning going on. My cat's been freaking out, and I can't blame her. She's never experienced something like this before.

We're lucky after the last invasion we kept a tool closet, it's been pretty effective what we've been doing to keep them out, but it doesn't seem like it's going to hold up much longer.

I just got a text from my sister. I guess the zombies haven't gotten to her neighborhood yet. I'm going to see if I can get down there. It's gotta be safer than here. My car's small, maybe I'll be able to squeeze past any abandoned cars on the interstate.

Wish me luck, I'll keep you guys posted. If the zombies don't get me.

(the zombies are coming.)

Writer's Block: Top Five Video Games
five more seconds;
What's on your Top 5 video games list?

1; Resident Evil 2
2; Final Fantasy X
3; Okami
4; The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
5; Resident Evil 4/Code:Veronica

Resident Evil 2; This has been, and probably always will be, my favorite Resident Evil game. It's not as scary as it used to be to me, what with the old graphics and sometimes hilarious voice acting, but things still manage to jump me, even though I know the game by heart. The story also remains very important and interesting to me, all these years and sequels later.

Final Fantasy X; This game has been my favorite Final Fantasy since I played it, which is sad since IX used to hold that spot, but X just had so many elements that I was completely drawn to. The beautiful world plagued by "sin" the religious references, the diverse cast of characters, and the story was just so heartbreaking. I loved it, and I still can't listen to the music that plays during the ending without crying.

Okami; Granted I still haven't finished this game, but I think that it took a kind of overused story and added an amazingly fresh twist to it. It's a blast to "draw" on things, and the wolf is surprisingly capable in battle, which I loved. Not to mention the game itself is absolutely breathtaking in scenery and effect.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess; Yes, all of the Zelda games are the same thing, over and over, but I felt like TP added enough fresh new elements to really sort of give a new breath to the series. Midna for one thing, was an incredible touch, and the graphics were quite beautiful. The wolf link thing was also new, and the much more interactive horseback, as well as more three-dimensional backdrop characters.

Resident Evil 4/Code:Veronica; These two games tie for me, because they're both sequels for my favorite characters, and they're both such good games. Granted, 4 IS a little bit better than CV, but not enough to matter in my book. The stories are both important, in some way, and while not completely connected, it's still my Resident Evil love. Claire is finally reunited with her brother in CV, Leon has it confirmed for him that Ada is in fact alive. There's also annoying helper characters that you have to play as at some point. Although Steve is vastly more useful than Ashley. Because he has guns.

essential reading;
Neighbor's dogs are barking.

Loooooooks like we're gearing up for another wave. Seems like downtown has been gutted, god knows how the electricity's still on. the zombies are starting to head out here, to the outskirts, but there's a lot of fortification down the street, not to mention huge fucking hill.

Still, the stronghold is prepped, just in case, and it's entirely likely that we may have to flee.

Sounds like the Rescue choppers are taking off.

Figures that they decide to get the people who are already frigging sick out before getting the healthy people out.


Also, for those of you who seem to think this is all an unfunny joke? SCREW YOU, PEOPLE DIE FROM ZOMBIES EVERY DAY. WE ARE FACING THE MOTHERFUCKING APOCALYPSE. MY FRIENDS, ARE DYING.

bitch please;

Okay so the zombies are dead, and the house is barred off, for now.

Dad said that this book was a stupid investment, but it's getting us through the motherfucking apocalypse.

Cable and Internet were restored by clever trick I invented using some gum and a satellite dish from the garage.

Cat is safely indoors, and uninfected.

(PSA for the uneducated. I am a big fat liar who loves zombies. And my Flist.)
