Long Time No Post!

Wow, almost a month since my last post already? Time sure flies. Hopefully this week I can do a new vlog if even a short one. Even though I have two exams and one assignment due this week there's plenty of downtime in between. Yep, first semester in Aussieland is almost done. Except for the odd week when something is actually due, it's felt really laid back compared to college which really surprised me.

The end of exam week will come with a really awesome reward! The latest Sims 3 expansion, Late Night, is coming out and it looks twice as good as Ambitions! And that expansion was still pretty decent. I'll be sure to post some videos of Late Night on my YouTube channel and put up some pictures on a new blog I'm making for strictly sim stuff.

I'll also be posting a video or two of my sims in Egypt. My sim versions of Bridgette and Geoff from Total Drama went to Egypt and while exploring one of the pyramids Bridgette was attacked and cursed by a mummy. If a sim gets the mummy's curse and you don't cure them within two sim weeks they will die. There's a few ways to get cured but I chose the most epic option which was to plead to the sphinx, navigate the dungeon beneath it, and seek cleansing from the Soulpeace statue at the end. With Geoff's help Bridgette made it all the way and she's in perfect health again. I didn't realize this until the very end, but it's like some crazy fanfiction come true. Being cursed by a mummy and then searching for a special statue kind of suits the zaniness of the Total Drama series though. Heck, this could have happened in Total Drama World Tour since Egypt was the first place they went to. The "mummy" turned out to just be Ezekiel though. Hilarious!

Seagull Fans Rejoice (if they exist)!

So a few days ago I was watching Stoked, and in the episode "Endless Bummer," the day manager at the hotel Andrew Baumer (or "Bummer" as the main characters call him) is revealed to be able to talk to seagulls. At the beginning one seagull refuses to leave the lobby, but Bummer argues with it and it eventually leaves (apparently the seagull insults his mother).

Bummer ends up getting fired after taking relaxation a bit too far after having a meltdown. Near the end of the episode the other characters setup a seagull invasion so Bummer can ward them off and get his job back. He ends up telling the gulls that there's an all-you-can-eat at Captain Ron's (the rival hotel). I think someone at Fresh TV knows me, but I don't know them.
