For those who don't know- Mass Effect: Andromeda has an official release date: March 21st (US)/ March 23rd (everywhere). I can't wait...and I have the money for it as well, which makes me even happier!

I am happy that I've lost 100 pounds...and I'm not living in a cardboard box. :)

Kid Kool (1988) for the Nintendo Entertainment System is GROSSLY underrated. Sure the concept could've been presented a little better, but it doesn't deserve the hate it gets in some circles.

No cardboard box home is definitely good news. Especially this time of year. :ymparty:

OMG!!! =)) (rofl)
I was just going to our front door to get the mail
I open the door, see a cat at the bottom of the steps walking past my car (seemed to be bird hunting)
I call to it...
tail raised, it runs up the steps, past me, into the house :-o
I let it through the next door and it proceeded to explore our ground floor for hidden food caches ;))
I then managed to get it into the kitchen where my mom was
she said we had nothing to give it and should not because then it would just come back :(
I petted it a bit, then it went to the back door (full glass, so it could see it led outside)
wanted out
I unlocked and openend the door, it stepped half out, then decided: "Damn, it's cold!"
but went out completely
I close the door, it turn around immediately, gets up on its hind paws and gives me this heartaching look and scratches at the door frame with its front paws! :O
I let it in again but almost immediately, it decides to go out again, and then prances away... :D
it was a very pretty cat, brown with black stripes, like our Hemingway once was :) Obviously well-nourished and cared for

Library Page. It's probably the bottom of the rung but I don't care that much. It's something to do and there are books and people so yay.

Working with books, surrounded by books, helping people who wanna read books... sounds like total win to me!

Congrats!!! :)
