More pointless news from Tophie:
I got a 2 am fireworks show. Some of my neighbors on the other side of the hill were setting off a bunch of them (illegally) and I found that by sticking the upper half of my body out the window, I could enjoy the show. Very, very pretty. It was a short show, which is understandable since 1) it was around 2 in the morning, and 2) they're illegal to set off unless you've got a permit or some shit to set them off (which no one really ever does).
And I have a pointless picture show, courtesy of Pandemic 2.
Earlier, I was getting frustrated in that I could not, yet again, infect Madagascar in any way shape or form, NO MATTER HOW MUCH NINJA STEALTH MY SYMPTOMS HAD it would always shut its sole shipyard before I could get to it. And then, lo and behold, I was spamming Miri with updates, asking for random advice , etc. when she gave me an idea to call it DYLANDY RAGE. That shit was so powerful, I ended up infecting Madagascar right after the shipyard closed. Unfortunately, they made a vaccine to stop me from infecting more people, so I started fresh. This time, I added five more a's to RAGE and I started in Madagascar
. The next round featured 'DEADLANDY RAGE' (don't feel bad, I lol'd), which showed up at number 7 on the high score list.
But moving on, my final round was quite epic. I started in Japan, set a few things before leaving the game to fend for itself for... I don't know how long. When I looked back, every single last region
had been infected by my disease, whose only symptom was a fever. Yes... this included Madagascar. So I tossed on a bunch more symptoms in order to whittle down the world's population
. And it worked
In fact, it worked so well, I won
for the first time ever. And because it was still so close to after midnight.... I landed on the high score list again.
Oh, and when I was walking in to work on Saturday, some bitch in a white Dodge Neon almost hit me as I was crossing the parking lot. I didn't have time to memorize her license plate number or copy it down, so I contented myself by flipping her off.
After work Sunday, I felt like baking again, so now I still have about a dozen oatmeal raisin cookies that I made at 10 o'clock. Before I get the sudden urge to make any more though... I need more stick margarine, brown sugar, and vanilla extract.
