All Sound and Fury…

No, not Furries.

I have a friend who is a furry, and this shall serve as a shout-out to him. ;)

So, what I’m trying to get at is that basically I have all kinds of projects on the back burner and here I am during the weekend and I’m playing games on the computer. Specifically, I’m playing a neat Solitaire card game I got called “Nestor” for the Amiga. It’s freeware, so Google it if you have an Amiga emulator and the Amiga Kickstart ROM version 1.3.

You click to select cards in pairs, and the object is to get all 52 cards in the bottom row. This reminds me of that Sega Saturn I bought. The game I’ve played most often on that is a Solitaire style game with Mahjongg tiles. A coworker of mine commented that I bought a $300 Mahjongg machine.

Well, this neat little Nestor game should keep me occupied at work on my breaks. I keep a netbook there, so I can play games if I so choose. Most of the games I play are either strategy games or little card and puzzle games like this. Civilization II is really too deep to get into on breaks anyway.

And while I’m playing Nestor until I get sick of it, I should be working on another project of mine. A couple of months ago, there was an object offered on e-bay that I sorely wanted.

I didn’t get it, and I’m kind of glad now. It went for $510 freaking US dollars! Yikes! I went and bought all the parts I need to make my own. All I need right now is a glue gun and some time.

Let me rephrase that. I need time when I don’t have another one of these god damned Chinook headaches. Grumble grumble grumble. Some day, I’ll take pics of the parts I have assembled for my own fembot head project. Some day I’ll assemble them and post the pics as a how-to.

But it will have to wait. I have another day off soon, thanks to the Alberta gubment. I hope I feel good then.
