Hello sweeties!

How was your week? I was quite the little social butterfly, attending an office warming party for Double Stallion and the Critical Hit Showcase. Look who’s finally getting her networking back on! Joking aside, it was really wonderful to finally work up the nerve to reconnect with the indie community and touch base with people I’m actually very glad to call my friends.

I also posted my first tutorial video on the N00b Beauty channel. It’s a summery, Japanese inspired festival look using lots of Japanese and Korean products. And bonus: you get to see me in my yukata at the end!

This weekend will involve tea and games, more video editing and a new super-secret project I’m involved with.

Link Time!
Dancing Pikachus!!!!!!!!!

Surprising no women who have ever used voice chat, teen girls prefer to stay silent when they play online.

Mallory over at Bad Wolf Brunch did us all a favour and proved that you can run away from dinosaurs in heels.

Where are the ladies of Star Wars?!? Seriously, if Mara Jade isn’t in Episode 7 there will be riots.

Speaking of Star Wars, wanna make your own GIANT GUMMY MILLENNIUM FALCON?! Of course you do.

Fascinating. About variable difficulty in game design.

Geeky cocktails for your end of summer BBQs.

On being a (barf) “real” gamer.

6 competitive games that anyone can play.

And finally, on mental illness and the tech industry.

      The Teacade was absolutely delightful! I love when tech events are low key and not booze soaked. And we’ll see what happens with this new project. I am starting to think I’m approaching peak project, though.

    That’s so funny about the heel’s post! The entire movie I couldn’t let that thought go of “JUST DITCH THE SHOES!” lol You’re makeup looked super awesome and even cuter once in your yakuta! Oh and confession time, eye lash curlers scare the hell out of me!

      You’re not alone on the eye lash curlers. Rick can’t even watch me use one. And I thought there’d be some love for the heels article. I haven’t even seen the movie and it seems to be the only thing anyone talks about.

    Penny for your thoughts...
