Chasing the Dragon

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. :)

Enough with the graphic photos!

I do NOT come on Tumblr so that I can look at gory, mutilated bodies of victims from crime scenes! Please show some respect for others and add them as links with a warning instead! Thank you!

One of the most embarrassing moments ever:

Someone you see in public that you’ve seen many times before, and since they feel they can say anything they want to you, it gives them the right to point out a flaw of yours. My body isn’t perfect, but that doesn’t give people the right to ask a personal question and humiliate me in front of others.

My mom and her sister went to that. Would be really neat to find a photo with them in it!

Look what I got to take from my store, stuff in my car, and set up in my living room! Bilbo would have went to the baler if I didn’t rescue him. A supervisor let me have one of our standee’s of “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” for free. And now I’m just relaxing, eating some pizza and drinking a Raspberry Shock Top. Doing pretty good over here. :)

Tumblr, you’re doing something right.

This is what happens when you search the tag suicide, depressed, self harm, and eating disorder. To anyone struggling with any of these things, please reach out and seek help.

You are worth it and you deserve it. 

Also, please reblog this so more people can see this. It could save a life. 

Family members of mine went to a funeral today for a 17 year-old girl that committed suicide. I don’t want to give any names out for privacy reasons. Just keep her friends and family in your prayers. Thanks.
