Sims Weekend

I really struggled getting through work on Friday because I couldn’t help but watch the updates on what was going on around my city, after the mass shooting the night before. I cried about twelve times and basically felt stressed and sad and ready to check out for a while. Sometimes you just need to hide from the world for a weekend so I spent much the past two days hiding in The Sims 4. It had been months since I’d played at all, and it was a really nice way to escape and reset a bit. Plus, I played at a desk that’s directly next to my husband’s desk, so we got lots of easy, hangout time. (And watching over his shoulder made me want to get back into my Fallout 4 game again.) I restarted my Sims world and didn’t want to spend forever making people (because let’s be honest, I was going to spend forever on the houses), so I grabbed some people made by other players and ended up with these great Pretty Little Liars …

Toast Ambassador

The other day I needed to sign up for a Google Apps email through WordPress.com to use at work, which meant getting a new domain first, and soooooooo: Welcome, ToastAmbassador.com to the Internet! 😀 (I’m sarah@ there.) I really love toast, and my name is an alias for the cute toast emoji (look!) in our Automattic Slack. (Which leads to someone realizing that for the first time occasionally and going, “Why are you a smiling piece of bread?”) Anyway! Isn’t that little toast logo just the cutest? And so official! The Kawaii Toast is from Collective Creation & the leaf frame is from Erin Bradley Designs (both on Etsy). I combined them in Inkscape to make my status as Ambassador of Toast super legit. Have you visited the site and joined my toast mailing list yet?  Related: Remember the last time I needed a domain and ended up with tennisballwearingawig.com? (I’ll never forget, Pretty Little Liars. That was just too odd.)

The Pretty Little Liars Meet ‘A’ [S06E10]

Soooooooo, the PLL mid-season finale was Tuesday, and well… that sure was an episode. Other than the ‘A’ reveal, it was so much talking, remembering, showing flashbacks, and explaining, that it felt basically like there was no action or tension. Not great. But still. Ridiculous + confusing + cute outfits, so I stayed glued to my TV. And I’m still sort of feeling the “holy shit” like I was on Tuesday. Anyway, here’s what happened: The girls left the dance, and went to the mystery scholarship office and guessed the code on a door keypad which ended up being “A’s brain” (secret lair) & it’s total high tech lab situation. There’s some CNN-style holographic bullshit screen in there! And it fired up a live feed of the room where Alison is trapped. Mona continued to be a total boss: Aria, about Clark: “You knew he was a cop?” Mona: “Aria, maybe you always thought he was happy to see you, but I could never get past the bulge in his pants.” (He had a gun. …

WTF, Pretty Little Liars Summer Finale!

Listen, y’all. I’m gonna need some TIME to ruminate on tonight’s episode of Pretty Little Liars (“Game Over, Charles,” S06E08). Me, right now: Because WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT! For now, please bask in the glory of my favorite lines from this episode: Alison: “You almost froze Aria & Spencer to death.” A: “Almost!” Alison: “You drove a car through Emily’s house.” A: “Yeah, and I almost cut her in half too, but is she hurt? No.” 😂 THIS SHOW. Swing back by on Thursday for the full recap. Until then, the recaps for episodes 1-9 can be found here.

Pretty Little Liars & the Pity Prom [S06E09]

The girls are banned from prom, so Spencer’s mom says she’ll host a tiny one in their backyard barn. Sure, it’s a fancy, re-done barn (not for animals!) but still. How rude. Oh, and they’re also banned from attending graduation, which seems extra-rude, since they’re not even the ones causing the problems. (Although honestly, I can’t remember the last time they went to school and they were locked in that underground bunker for a few weeks at least, so how are they graduating on time anyway?) Of course as soon as we know the foursome won’t be at prom, Alison gets a text from Charles luring her to the prom, so I guess she’ll ditch the girls when the time comes. There’s some good news though! After last episode‘s traumatic moment in the art gallery (where Aria’s contest entry photos were replaced with creepy ones from the bunker), the contest judges looked at her real photos and she won! (Probably because they felt sorry for her because those creepy doll photos weren’t all that, but …

Pretty Little Liars & Ezra’s Terrible Shirt [S06E08]

We open on Alison telling the Girls about how that creepy home movie (which we saw at the end of the last episode) was from a birthday celebration in which Charles gave her the frosting off his birthday cake. “How does that turn vicious?” Alison laments. Hanna is the best because this is how she replies: “You played skee ball once! I wouldn’t call that family bonding.” Dropping truth bombs! Next we see Hanna and her mom trying to talk to Mr. DiLaurentis (Alison’s dad) about the mystery $30k scholarship. Hanna wants to get rid of it, because “‘A’ gives so ‘A’ can take away,” but her mom doesn’t want to give it back since they do need the money. Ezra is pretending to dust or something while he eavesdrops on Aria’s conversation with photography-pal, Clark. She’s not going to the show they’re both finalists in because it’s TOO DANGEROUS, so he brought her a postcard advertising the show. (Aww.) He leaves, so Ezra swoops in and points out that Clark sure does ask a lot …
