I’ve been having quite the stressful day. Corporate was here so it has put everyone on edge. I felt like I’ve been walking on egg shells around here, but I’m doing my best to keep it cool. Breathe and relax somehow. For the fun of it all I snapped a selfie just before my lunch break. I have kind of a “I am so done with all this crap” expression on my face, heh! XD
It’s not been a ‘great day’ here for us either, so you’re not missing much. <3
Medieval Dances - The Egg Dance
The Egg dance was one of the earliest Saxon Medieval dances and, like the Carole, was performed during a period of festivity namely the Easter-tide festivities. The egg dance was derived from a traditional Easter game, in the egg dance eggs were laid on the ground or floor and the goal was to dance among them damaging as few eggs as possible.

I’ve been making these for many friends on Facebook, just for fun. Since this lovely young friend of mine isn’t on FB, I’d like for her to have a Disneyland b-day button, too, but on here instead! :D Hope your weekend is going great, Iona! <3
When thinking up ideas for video game related posts, there were two games involving dragons, or at least eight-bit versions of dragons, that came to mind. The first was Adventure, sometimes known as Atari Adventurebecause its official name is so generic. It was released for the Atari 2600 in 1979, and was largely responsible for the action-adventure genre of video games. It was based on a text…
A co-worker and I were talking about this game the other day. It’s an old Atari romp where the player ventures around three castles (yellow, black, and white) while avoiding three dragons (Grundle in green, Yorgle in yellow, and Rhindle in red). The object is to find a chalice and get it back to the yellow castle without getting eaten by a dragon. Yorgle is afraid of the yellow key (that opens the yellow castle), Grundle guards a magnet and bridge, and Rhindle guards the chalice itself. There are three game types with Rhindle only appearing in the second and third. It was fun to play, and I probably would mess around with it again if I could find an Atari emulator for my computer. :)
