Loves Liza Minnelli, Dudley Moore, The Beatles, The Who, The Monkees, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Dean Martin, etc. Definitely born in the wrong era.

29 year old girl from the east bay area in California (read as: nowhere on the map) and also loves all things craft-wise. Is an avid cross-stitcher, knitter, crocheter, photographer, writer, loves drawing, and generally anything that involves making something pretty.

Also loves nostalgia. Both from the 60's/70's, from her own childhood in the 80's/90's, and some even older stuff. You've been warned.

Beat Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, today.

pragmatic-solution:

Ah Paper Mario… You beautiful, beautiful game, you.

Today, after not touching the game for 8 years out of sheer discouragement thanks to the ridiculous final boss I never beat, I have actually finished the game, needless to say, I am in love.

This fucking game was so perfect and clever and beautiful and I have fallen in love with all the characters and places, I still need a few badges, recipes and I need to finish The Pit before I can truly say I 100%ed it, but damn… Blast from the fucking past, and nostalgia for days, I played the game when I was younger, got to the end and never finished it, my save got wiped, unfortunately, but then, years later, my little sister (Which I have raised to be an A+ gamer) had played the game through and got to the final boss, which I beat for her! The entire situation was like out of a fucking movie, and I think that game was fucking perfect.

I learned a ton because of it, and I can only hope Nintendo makes a sequel that does justice to it, unlike Sticker Star’s disgraceful display.

Thank you to all who were part of making this game, thank you to all who bought it and thank you to all who played it, wasn’t it great? : ’ )

My love: if you’re reading this letter, then I am no longer by your side. Because fate has come between us, I have decided to write you this letter. If you’re reading this, I must have passed away while you were out to sea… I can only assume that you will blame yourself for it, my sweet Bobbery. Although my life was short, you gave me more than a lifetime’s worth of joy. Though you will mourn, I beg that you remember that time, like love, is a tide. You are one with the sea, as you were with me. Do not loose both of your life’s loves. 

- Letter from Admiral Bobbery’s late wife, Scarlette.
