This is what I’ve been up to for a while tonight. Between the Sims, three different Bingo apps, and the Duggars on Netflix, I’d have to say this has been one of the most unproductive weekends I’ve had in a long time. There’s lots of stuff I could have gotten done tonight…but I just wasn’t in a tidying mood.
When you don’t have kids, and your landlord won’t let you have any animals, you’re still allowed to have those weekends, so I figure I’ll keep enjoying them while I can. While kids are not in the near future, they’re going to happen at some point.
I have to admit, I wish the Sims Freeplay was a little more like the Sims for computer, but as a free app, I’m pretty impressed so far with the quality of the graphics, as well as with my tablet’s ability to keep up with everything. Since it was free for us, and also on the cheaper end of the current tablet options, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. Verizon has done something good, for once!
Well, I’m starting to get notifications from the Sims that one of my tasks is done, so I’m gonna get back to that for now. More posts to come tomorrow (hopefully)!
I figured I’d kill two birds with the same stone. Kitten meme to make you warm & fuzzy, and an accurate expression to sum up how I still feel about the article I talked about earlier today.
Read this link, from Salon earlier today.
My thoughts on the above-referenced article are as follows:
…Not that I want to think bad thoughts onto kids (Karma, and what have you), but part of me wonders if these celebrity parents would still feel the same way if one or more of their own kids ended up hospitalized and/or permanently disabled because they caught a disease that is so easily preventable.
Obviously these kids don’t have a choice, and it makes me so angry that their parents are endangering their lives because of their own absurd “beliefs” based on scientifically dis-proven (on multiple occasions) medical “studies” conducted by some wacko Italian dude…
Ugh…Now I need to find a post to follow this that will restore my faith in humanity. At the very least, a video of baby animals. I’ll get right on that, hopefully more to come later today…
This link does an excellent job of summing it all up.
Thank you, science, for your wonderful help in shedding some light on this super-important issue!
