News Of The Day

So I told you the Patreon was off for March (and it is. It’s automatically set to go on hiatus, and Patreon assures me you will not be charged, and, if it is, I will call and have it all refunded.) This is because, in this year of me and Jill preparing to settle down and have a baby, I am going to Europe. I’ll be gone between March 6th and March 31st. 

Doc, that sounds like the worst possible way of settling down. Let me explain. No, there is too much, let me sum up. 

When I was a girl, going to Europe was my dream, and it was a dream that was like going to the moon–I come from a relatively poor background on both sides, particularly when I was young. No one in my family had been to the east fucking coast when I was a girl, I saw the ocean for the first time when I was 18 and only because I made it happen. But Europe, you see, was never going to happen, no matter how many avenues I tried, I was still a girl from the middle of nowhere who, regrettably had never been born into wealth. 

I was talking to my boss about how it was something I’d always wanted to do before I had a baby, and I was sad that it was pretty clear that wasn’t going to work out. Jill had wanted to send me, but we just couldn’t make it work. It was a thing she really longed to do for me before we had a baby, but the truck broke, and we need a new water heater–the banal things of life. It was disappointing, but it was a dream I was going to let die.

 My boss is a complex man, a rich white dude who nonetheless has a sense of compassion and generosity that occasionally strikes like lightning. So he gave me the money for plane tickets, train tickets, and a month off (unpaid). If you’re going to go once in your life, he said, try to make it count. SO I AM. I was originally going to go by myself, as I don’t have much trouble doing that, and actually enjoy a certain amount of solitude. I live in my head a lot. But ever since my Mom divorced my Dad she’s had a pile of money and weeks of vacation sitting there doing nothing, so I invited her to come along, and I thought she was going to cry with excitement. 

The Patreon has been an amazing help, and is going to cover my bills while I’m gone. But since it’ll be off that month, and for some of you who have always wanted to toss a couple bucks my way, but don’t want the month to month thing, I decided to set something up specifically for this trip. I want to add that I don’t expect anything–y’all have done enough for me, frankly. And I’ll still be able to borrow money from Mom to make it work, so you’re not ruining my life. Basically, I’m just asking you to help me out with a lifelong dream I’m getting out of the way.

 But there’s rewards! SHINY, FANTASTIC REWARDS. I’m not just asking for money, I want to do stuff for it. And when I say any character, I mean it. (Though, if I’m totally unfamiliar with even the property, you’re taking your life into your own hands) Want a postcard from Bill Cipher? PRETTY SURE I COULD KILL IT, ACTUALLY. A letter from Bastion? The most soulful beep and boops you’ll ever read. Usagi goes to the Paris Catacombs? DONE, WITH LOVE AND TENDERNESS.

 So here’s the breakdown:

 Any level: a photo post thanking you personally with a picture of me doing the thing!

 Tier One: a postcard of the country, from either me or your favorite character! Mailed from Europe.

 Tier Two: a two page ficlet of your fav character experiencing whatever you got me, or a two page letter from me about it. Mailed from Europe. Example of how I write about food here.

 Tier Three: I buy you a small souvenir from said locale, and wrap it up with a letter from your favorite character or me. Mailed upon my return, I can’t figure out the post offices THAT well.

 Tier Four: don’t do this, but if you want to, convo me first and we’ll work something out.

How to do this, if you want to:

Message me with what you want to sponsor and your email address. I’ll send you a request via paypal! And let me know which character(s) you’d like your letter/postcard from! 

Again, I have no expectation of anyone doing this, so no worries. I thank you anyhow! You’re all amazing. This is a dream I never thought I would fulfill, and all of you have had no small part in making it a reality. I wish I could tell you how much it means to me, and I look forward to all the new shades of adventure we’ll have together.

She arrived at the pub at 5:00 p.m. The Cambrian Tap was on the corner of a street, the building the color of… with big, black windows and grey brick work above the windows. Thankfully, it wasn’t too crowded for a Saturday evening. When y/n entered the pub, she thought to grab herself a beer for the occasion. She walked up to the bar and took a seat on the stool.

“What can I get for you, miss?” asked the bartender.

“Uuuuhhh…. I don’t know much about ales or beers here sooo,” she said as she quickly looked at the list of drinks before her. There were so many to choose from that it seemed impossible to pick just one. “I’ll try the Dragon Dark,” y/n smiled as she looked at the bartender.

“Coming right up,” he said as he went to grab a glass, poured her drink from a stout then handed it to her. ‘Dragon’s Dark’ was a dark ale with a roasted barley flavor and creamy head. “Why not,”y/n said in her head.

Y/n thanked the bartender when he gave her the drink and before he walked off, she asked him,

“Also, I wanted to ask, do you know of a few old men who come here often, Saturday evenings. They speak of fairytales, probably get weird looks from other customers?” The bartender smirked, knowing exactly who y/n was talking about.

PART 2 COMING SOON

Newlyn Hills is what I’m calling my CC-free Newcrest project. I thought I’d post a rough plan of what I want to build and then update this post as I complete each lot. This will serve two purposes - it’ll show an overview of what I’m working on and also serve as a guide for where to place my lots. 

My plan is to release each lot individually as I build them for people who might want them right away, then release a whole save when I’m done. The full save will include Blythe Harbor Lite, as well as a remake of Magnolia Promenade, which I’m calling Lynport. I also hope to create households and townies for all three worlds (if I don’t run out of steam ;-p).

Keep in mind these are just my preliminary ideas for the lots; much of this could change as I build and develop the world. :) If you have any suggestions or feedback, let me know!

Here’s the plan for the neighborhoods:

So my friends and I decided to take a trip to Nashville yesterday. We left around 8, drove a 3 ½ hour sleepy drive, shopped until 2, ate at the delicious and sugar-coma inducing Pancake Pantry, saw the city some more, then had an amazing rooftop dinner at Pub 5, where we all devoured our amazing burgers and watched the sun dip between the buildings that make the Nashville skyline. There are few friends with whom I could have had such a great time with, and I got to say I’d do it all over again, as long as I was with them. Even though my legs hurt so much that I have to take breaks to go up or down the stairs.

BITTER END***

CRESTWOOD, Ill. — Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane is already an NHL veteran after seven seasons and he will soon enter his late 20s, but being around hockey still has a way of making him feel like a kid.

Kane especially felt that way Monday as he, along with Gatorade, unveiled a renovated locker room at Southwest Ice Arena in Crestwood, Ill. to 13- and 14-year-old players on the St. Jude Knights.

“I think the main thing for me is to come back and see the kids’ faces and see how excited they are,” Kane said. “Just walking in here and seeing them excited. It’s a special day for me just to come back and try to give back any way I can to the kids. St. Jude has a lot of hockey history and a lot of respect.

”[I remember from my childhood] it’s just kind of surreal when you do meet a pro athlete that it’s actually happening. You look up to them like your role models and idols and probably something more than you probably should. It’s still exciting nonetheless, especially for young kids. Probably hits the heart most for me working with young kids whether they play hockey or not. It’s just exciting to see their faces and see their reaction when someone like yourself comes by and tries to give them any input or intake on how to help with anything. It’s special for me.”

Kane spent time with the players and answered a variety of questions. He also asked them questions about themselves and their team. When he spotted the team’s captain, Kane said, “Are you keeping them in line? Good. Just like Tazer [Jonathan Toews.]”

Kane joked he had some butterflies before meeting the players.

“I was nervous,” Kane said. “I was joking what if I walk in and they don’t know who I am. When I did walk in, they were pretty excited and probably in shock a pro athlete was here just to present something for them. I probably would have had more success with the figure skating team out there because when I was walking by I heard a few screams.”

The 25-year-old Kane felt as if it wasn’t that long ago he was also a teenager with hockey dreams.

“Time flies,” Kane said. “I feel like I was one of these kids yesterday. Trying to work as hard as I could to get as far as I could in the game of hockey, but at the same time having fun doing it. It was my childhood growing up. That’s pretty much what I did — play hockey.

“If there’s 365 days in the year, I was probably on the ice 350 of them, maybe multiple times a day. That was what I loved doing growing up. I don’t know if it was because I was good at it or I enjoyed scoring goals. It was fun for me growing up. Looking at these kids today, I could see kind of the same look I had on my face when I played.”

Kane’s desire to play hockey wherever and whenever was apparent when he recently suited up and played in recreation league game in his hometown of Buffalo. Kane scored five goals and dished out five assists to help the Piranhas defeat Essex St. Pub, 13-5.

“When I go back home, it’s exciting for me and my buddies to play hockey,” Kane said. “It’s something we do for fun. By no means if we’re playing a game like that, do you think it’s going to get out to the media or you think it’s going to be a big story or anything like that. You’re just going to have fun. That’s exactly what we were doing.

“I love the game. I love playing it whether it’s in the NHL or in a little men’s league during the summer. It’s obviously not all the same, but it’s still the game of hockey. You can enjoy that way.”

His Buffalo buddies and his family keep Kane down-to-earth despite his fame and money, which in the 2015-16 season will begin to include an eight-year, $84-million contract extension.

“If I don’t [stay grounded] my parents will, my sister will or my buddies back home,” Kane said. “They’re pretty good at it. It’s something I don’t think about it. It’s obviously an honor to have a contract like that given to you from an amazing organization like the Blackhawks, but I have always maintained the same notion that I’m just a kid having fun playing hockey. That’s what I love to do. I’m lucky I get to do it for a job.”
