My Dragon Eggs

Continuing on from the last post, I had 'adopted' 4 cute wee dragon eggs. 

Well, now those eggs have hatched into adorable little baby dragons.  
They are...  *sniff*   PERFECT!   I'm SO proud of them. 
*wipes tear from eye*



So, allow me to present.......

Dragon Cave

There is an interesting 'game' on the internet called Dragon Cave.
It's free to join. You can find it here -
http://dragcave.ath.cx/


The idea is to raise your own dragons. biggrin.gif 


Dragon eggs are frequently found, or abandoned, in the cave. You can claim these eggs as your own, if you want - you can have up to 4 eggs. 


After you claim the eggs, they become YOUR responsibility. They need X amount of people to view them, and X amount of people to click on them to help them hatch, but that number is different for every egg.
 


After they hatch, you can name them, and help them grow into adult dragons. 


I have only recently discovered this game, and I am now caring for 4 lovely little eggs.
Please view them to help them grow - http://dragcave.ath.cx/user/FreakyLittleHobbitLover


Why don't YOU adopt a dragon today. biggrin.gif

That Secret Project.....

Gah, why won't things work properly?

That secret project I mentioned in the last post is giving me headaches. I was trying ('trying' being the key word, hehe) to create a website, but it's been one problem after another. I have the continuing problem of the whole thing jumping left, so it's up against the edge, with no margin.  I've no idea why that keeps happening.  I'm also having a lot of trouble to get pictures to show up on the site. Finally, the search thingy doesn't work, so people can't search my site for things.

I'm on the verge of giving up *sniff* Can anyone recommend an easy-to-use web-creation thing for beginners that's cheap? Don't say Bravenet, cos that's who I'm using just now.

At first, this project excited me. Now it frustrates me *pulls hair out in frustration* See what Bravenet is doing to me! Lol

Updates, Updates, Updates

I've not posted here for a while... let me apologise for that. 

So what's been happening?  Well last time I posted, I had fallen down the stairs.  Thankfully my bruises have all healed now, and I can move my arm a lot easier.  It's good to be able to move without pain!  

I have to keep a log of the blackouts.  I don't think they will ever stop completely, but they have been getting a bit less frequent now.  It's been 3 days since the last blackout (woohoo).  And I haven't fallen down any stairs for a while!!!   The medication has a strange side effect.  It makes me tired, so I have to sleep more than I used to.  Wierd, huh?  

It's been quite hot and sunny recently, which I don't like.  The heat builds up so much in the office at work, it's unbearable at times - even with the window open.  I keep telling the boss we need a fan, but she just won't listen to me, lol. 

I'm working on a secret project right now, which is keeping me busy.  It gives me something to focus on, which I needed.  Don't wanna say much about it yet, but I'm actually quite excited with this project.  I'm looking forward to unleashing it on the poor, unsuspecting public, hehe.  



Anyways, that about all for now.  Just thought I would let you all now I'm not dead... yet!  Hehe.

Those Stairs Will Be The Death Of Me.....

I've been trying the last 2 or 3 weeks to get these stupid blackouts under control, and it's not easy, let me tell you!  They happen at the most inconvenient times sometimes.  

I was walking down some marble stairs on Sunday, in the block of flats where I live.  Next thing I know, I wake up at bottom of the stairs, and I could hardly move.  Marble is HARD, and it hurts a lot when you fall down on it.  I ache all over.  I have bruises on my bruises.  I'm just glad I blacked out when I was halfway down the stairs, and not right at the top, lol.  I'm still very stiff, but it would have been worse if I was at top of the stairs.

The medication I'm taking is supposed to reduce my stress, and therefore reduce the blackouts.  Well I have to take it for 6 months, but so far it hasn't worked.  This new doc wanted me to stop meditating, which I think is kinda strange.  My own doctor advised it, and taught me how to meditate with candles, but this second doctor told me NOT to meditate.  She wants to see if the medication has any effect.  They are just contradicting each other!  Bah!

Audiosurf - Ride Your Music

I guess you are all tired of hearing about my medical problems, so I wanted to write about something different today.

A friend told me about this wonderful computer game called Audiosurf. As the title suggests, you surf along to audio tracks. You can use any music which is already on your computer, or you can use any music cd either, and the game transforms the music into a track which you can race along. Now before you get any ideas, this is not just a typical racing game! I am not a big racing fan, but I love this game.

Okay, so what's so special about this game? Well as I said before, you race along a track in time to your music. The road bumps up and down in time to the beats in whatever song you are playing, and it's really amazing to see. On the easiest level, you have to hit the coloured blocks with your car, but avoid the grey blocks. You must have a cluster of at least 3 coloured blocks (any shape) in order to score points. The bigger the cluster, the more points you earn. There are 3 lanes, and you have to keep switching between them by using the mouse. As well as bumping up and down in time to the music, the road keeps twisting and turning, so you don't always know what block is looming towards you. On the next level up, there are 3 colours (red, blue, and yellow), and you need to make clusters of one colour without overfilling that lane. This can get very tricky at times, lol. There are harder levels as well, which I have not tried yet.

The song you choose determines the shape and the speed of your game. If you choose a fast song, then you race away at amazing speed. If you choose a gentler song, then it's not quite so intense. I find that songs with heavy drums or bass work best. When you've finished playing a track, it uploads your scores, so you can compare them to anyone else that has played that track. I'm well and truly addicted to this game now!

You can find the homepage for this game right here -
http://www.audio-surf.com/ . There is a free demo, which you can try for 60 minutes to see if you like the game or not. You will need to install Steam on your computer, which is completely free. Don't worry if you have never heard of Steam before. The demo lets you download Steam at the same time. If you like the game, you can buy the full thing for $11 (about £5-£6), which unlocks all the characters, and gives you unlimited play. 



In case you are still puzzled as to what this game is about, here's a small video clip to demonstrate:

What's Up Doc? Part 3

Had to go back and get the heart monitor today.  Ghastly thing!!!  I have to wear it for 2 days, then wait for results.  I suppose the only good thing is that it's small and discrete, and you can't tell that I'm wearing it.  Only my boss and one other person at work knows that I have it.  

The doctor checked my blood pressure again, but no change from last week.  She got some results back from tests she did last week, but nothing interesting showed up.    

She was asking if I had been a good girl, and was taking the stress medication.  Well I HAVE been taking medication, but it doesn't make any difference.  *sigh*

I have to keep a record of the blackouts now - when I've had one, how I feel, what was I doing right before the blackout, etc.  So I had to get a notebook to right it all down in.  This is gonna make for some scary reading, lol.  

The medication lasts for 6 months, and I have to get yet another appointment then - just a check up, so hopefully no monitor, hehe.

Minesweeper: The Movie

You ever played the Minesweeper game? It comes with every computer that has MS Windows installed. You have to hit a square to reveal some numbers, then use those numbers to discover where all the mines are.

My friend showed me this film about the game. It's hilarious - you have to watch it. So many brilliant lines...

SERGEANT: Why are you here, soldier?
SOLDIER: I'm here because I'm BORED!
SERGEANT: And don't you forget it!

Anyway, here is the film for your enjoyment. (:

What's Up Doc? Part 2

So I had my appointment with the doctor today.  My boss at work arranged for me to see this doctor, cos I haven't been doing so well recently.  

I got a few tests done.    She checked my blood pressure.  It's a bit high, but she's not too concerned about that right now.  She also checked my heart rate, and it's a bit irregular.  She thinks that is what's causing my blackouts (I already knew that - my own doctor told me before!).  Anyway, I have to go back next week to get a heart monitor, which I will have to wear for 2 days.  Oh joy!

She did a few more tests, and was asking lots of questions.  The result is that she put me on medication for stress. 
*sigh*

Doctors - who needs 'em?

Let's Play Games

Hey there.

I have a flash game for you today, for your entertainment...

Quest For The Rest is about 3 band members that are separated from the rest of the band, and it's up to you to re-unite them. The game is quite short, but the music is amazing. I also love the artwork in this game.

http://www.questfortherest.com/

Have fun.
