The Deranged Rantings and Rambling Screeds of Myuphrid the Dracolupe

It's pronounced "mew-fridd", incidentally

Blimey, this has taken a while. Who'd've thought that writing and proofreading a full manuscript would have taken so bloody long?

So, most of us have probably played video games in some capacity. Given the sheer proliferation of both builds, this probably takes the form of a mix of 2D and 3D games.

But how many of you can say you've ever played a 1D game?

Wolfenstein 1-D is a curious concept, but a very clever one. The id Software classic reduced to a single line of colour-coded pixels. Who'da thunk it?

Sorry to post such a minor journal, but I just had to rave a bit about this rather unique and creative idea.

The raptors are coming!!

So yeah. Some guy calculated that it's seven millenia since Noah's Ark supposedly happened, so that apparently means that the raptors are coming, and--

Huh? What's that?

RaptURE? Oh, oho! Sorry!

But yeah. I'm evidently only interested in vaguely current affairs if I can make a bad pun out of it.

I'm sorry to go on about this costume, but I cannot overstate just how much I love it!

It's funny, but when I'm enwrapped in this velvety dracolupe, I find myself walking with a genuine spring in my step. I'm positively jaunty in fact! Even if my sight is hampered just enough to prevent me from using the computer properly, I can't help prancing gaily about! Tom's not really a fan, though.

It's the damnedest thing, but I feel much more extroverted when I'm all dracoluped up. Apart from being all bouncy, I find myself posing and dancing in the mirror. Ordinarily I don't even glance at my reflection, but the big-headed, green-black-and-white, spandex-y Myuphrid gets Eskimo kisses, the hand-to-mouth "tee-hee" thing, boogying... the works.


"...it's just they're terribly comfortable. I think everyone will be wearing them in the future."

Well, I spent my afternoon productively...Collapse )

Well, I think today has proven that I'm hopelessly furry. After all, who but a furry would buy themsevles a velour costume in the image of an anthropomorphic hybrid between a wolf and a dragon?

I think I can safely say, though, that it was worth every penny. Now I just need to find someone to cuddle...

I think I'm establishing something of a hat collection, a fair selection of stylish headgear.

Most recently: one of Valve Software's nifty headcrab hats! Everyone's favourite chirping, head-eating, neuro-jacking Xenian lump, now a lovely headpiece!

Also three more Transformers, although they probably wouldn't make terribly good hats.
Oh, and this thing.

Does winning Portal 2 still count if you had to look up a walkthrough to get through one test chamber?

I mean, for fuck's sake Valve, I know all your employees are most likely very clever people, but not all your customers are. I play video games as a form of escape, not a crushing reminder of my immense imbecility.

Good game, though. At least when I'm not standing around thinking "What the Hell am I meant to be doing?!!".

It was quite nifty visiting that one famous place in the sea, too.

If there's one aspect of modern life that fills me with such mixed feelings, it's waiting for packages.

Quite apart from it being rather against my preferred waking habits (who was it who said "only a scoundrel thinks of waking before noon"?), it makes one intimately familiar with that most curious of emotional combinations: that of sudden anticipation and disappointment.

Every time a van should pull into the road (especially one with a FedEx or Royal Mail logo on the side), I'm there craning my neck and crossing my fingers - only to deflate as the van rides away, or the dilligent steward of the parcels bestows his cardboard-enwrapped munificence upon some other house. Damnit, why must people insist on buying things at the same tume I do?!

And then of course, the Royal Mail van pulls into our driveway. That'll probably be for me, then.

But anyway, exciting new things! My life is enriched by the presence of a lovely new Combobulator and Vector Prime! Hooray!

Just one more package left to receive. And this one, I dare say, will be easily the most exciting...

"I do believe I'm on fire."

Today has been one of those days; a day of firsts.

Specifically, today has been the first time in my life that the oven has caught fire during a simple attempt to cook lunch.

Thankfully it's only the front of the oven that's a charred mess rather than the entire house. Oddly enough, the LED clock still seems to keep time.
