a great little game you may not know about

i have been away from my simmies for the last week or so, because i have been deeply entangled in the puzzles of the island if Isola.. that is, playing virtual villagers lol.

for anyone who has NOT heard of this game, lemme sum it up.  you get a small group of random villagers, stranded on an island with nothing but the clothes on their backs. you need to teach them how to live off the land, and keep them alive and healthy, and breed new generations to thrive and discover the secrets of the island.
sound like fun? well it is!  unlike the sims, virtual villagers does not need your constant attention. it runs in real time, and will continue to 'play' even when your computer is off (unless you pause your village) things can sometimes progress very slowly, so its good to check on them, do a few things, then go do something else while you wait. of course, you can always stay around for hours helping the children collect the rare collectibles (something villagers cannot do without your aid) but most tasks, once taught to a villager, they will continue to do unless you tell them to do something else.

you must also figure out the secrets of the island, depending on which game you are playing (there are FOUR virtual villager games) each one has a different objective. in this latest one, you need to save the tree of life. so while making a life for your little villagers, you must also try to heal the tree, and save the island. here are few screenies from my game.





children can collect mushrooms for the food bin. only children can collect things from the ground, so its very worth it to keep your villagers breeding. but more population means more food



the tree of life. im only about halfway to saving it. the puzzles in this one are much more complex than previous villager games



each villager has a status page, where you can choose what skills he or she should work on. it also states their health status, likes, age and gender. likes can effect the way a villager behaves. they can also become sick and die, so its a good idea to check on them now and then. setting a check mark on a skill, tell that villager to focus on that skill. but you will need to teach him first. if you want him to build, drop him onto a building project untill he gets the hang of it. some villagers are stubborn tho. eventually, they will  get it.  they take breaks now and then to do laundry, get a drink, go swimming, but they go right back to work when break time is over lol.


well, i just wanted to share this little gem with you all. being simmers (most of you) im sure this is a game you may enjoy.  here is the official site, for more info and a download link. you can get a free trial to try it out.

germaphobe much?

i noticed recently ads on tv about the hand pumps of liquid soap. how they claimed all your 'dirty germyness' was getting all over the hand pump and you just get it on yourself the next time you use the soap.

ok maybe its just the way i wash my hands, but dont you wash OFF everything AFTER you touch the hand pump? so who really gives a rats ass whats on it? it could be covered with the ebola virus, if your immediately washing your hands, it doesnt really matter.

people are really TOO dam paranoid about germs these days. got news for you. a few germs are good for you. they help your body get stronger and learn to fend off the really bad stuff. thats what our immune system is designed to do.
as long as you wash your hands regularly, you dont have anytthing to worry about.

sheesh...  what is the damn obsession with everything being sterile? is it just me who sees how ridiculous this is?

oops

i dunno how to delete a post, so instead of having a blank one here, i guess i should write something.
well i heard last night while i was playing perfect world that china was hit with a huge quake.
how awful. these quakes are really scary. of course, the spoiled little shits playing couldnt have cared less.. when someone announced on the chat that china had a quake, some 'witty' person said, 'i hope they secured all the egg rolls'
what a fucked up thing to say, when someone just announces that 67 people died!!
some teenagers really piss me off. bunch of self important, arrogant little shits.
its getting so that i hardly even want to play my favorite games or even go on the internet anymore, these twats are everywhere. dont their mothers know wtf they are doing all day?
my mother sure as hell kept tabs on me. and i sure as HELL dont let my daughter on the internet. shes only 10, but i have still seen plenty of 10 year old trolls on the EA forum.
there is a serious lack of respect for people and it pisses me off.
i was raised to respect other peoples property, feelings, and personal space. nowadays, kids seem to think the world is theirs for the taking and 'stfunoob' to anyone who says boo to them.


well this has accidently become a rant lol (i really complain too much, dont i?)
so ill leave this topic alone now

well i just had a terrible scare

my cat is a bit crazy, its one of the reasons i love him. and its not uncommon for him to suddenly jump up and run thru the house. so when i saw him jump out of his box and run up the stairs this morning, i thought nothing of it. in fact i believe i called him a nutcase on his way up.

but a few seconds later my daughter started screaming that something was wrong with the cat, so i ran upstairs to see. he seemed to be having some kind of seizure. his legs were running but he was hitting the wall. his tail was puffed up and he just seemed to not know where he was. it was terrifying.

after a few minutes he calmed down and now he seems ok.. altho breathing heavy.. but what an odd thing. 30 years i have had cats and neve3r seen anything like this. i hope hes gonna be ok..

my little girl loves killswitch engage

man she makes me so dam proud! she loves trivium too. i see her dancing and headbanging when its on hehe. they seem to be her favorites. maybe because i put my headphones up to her 'ears' when i was preggy?

my little metal headHearts

is it just me?

or does it bug anybody else when you open a blog or a webpage and get assaulted by audio ads or music?

i usualy have music playing on my pc anyway, so going to a site that suddenly starts playing its own is like musical terrorism.. it offends my ears lol. its fine to have a playlist or i-pod thingy on your page, but make it so you have to activate it manualy or something. i always do that with my playlists, i just think its rude to blast my music at someone who may not like my style or music choice.

if i hear one more rap or lady gaga song i might have to shoot myself.
ok and whats with lady gaga anyway? all the kids on the sims sites are 'lady gaga this and lady gaga that' i dont get it. i havent heard any of her music for more than a sec, but i already know its not my thing. but shes not really that differnt from any other pap star... so WHY is everyone 'gaga' over her?
shes ugly, for one. her style is stupid, for two. shes just an attention whore in my opinion. she seem to be going out of her way to make herself noticed. being wierd might sell albums, but it doesn't make you talented. sorry if im old fashioned, but i like an artist to actualy have talent. yeah im showing my age here, but BEFORE MTV (omg there was a time before mtv??) artist were judged on their TALENT and not their looks... cause half the time you didnt know what they looked like anyway.

now its just a fucking fashion show and it sicken me. that is NOT what music is about. music is about expression and pouring out your soul. not about dressing up and being sexy and making money. fuckin posers.
