Quick Post

I have to baby-sit my two cousins tonight, so this will be another one of those quick blog posts where I write various bullet points.

  • This website says I posted at 9:36 pm when I posted in the afternoon. These websites need to list what time zone they're using.
  • I was at Target today with my mom and sister (who take FOREVER), and I noticed that only one of the books in the children's book section was not based on a movie or TV show. I guess they don't think children want to read unlicensed books. Anyway, Ramona Quimby: Age Eight for the win!
  • Ah, Chili's is a restaurant that has not shrunk their burgers (yet), but they do skimp out on the fries compared to what they had before. And their turkey sandwich switched from real turkey meat to Oscar Meyer-style deli slices of turkey. So they have done some cost-cutting measures, just not with the burgers.
  • Did I post my "getting old games to work on Vista" video here yet? I forget. Anyway, here's the video, and it shows what I do when I have problems with old games (which doesn't happen often). Hopefully that will help you, Ciara.

Hmm. The dosage of fries Chili's gave me when I went was pretty heafty. Maybe it's differen't where you live. Ew, Oscar Meyer? Nasty. Well, enough about food, I have to get my pajamas on and try to squeeze time in tonight to paint my nails before school starts tomorrow. Hm. Who ever thought of putting crazy colors on dead skin buildup on your fingers??? It's such an odd idea, yet it seems so normal. Just a thought. Michael, I think I'd like to put some pictures of me on my blog (like the ones I took while I was at camp), but I don't know if I feel safe doing that. I also don't know if my mother would let me, which is a big part of whether I am going to or not. Could you give me your opinion on what to do? Thanks
Tallulah

Don't do it, Tallulah! Don't touch the spindle! haha. I have not been to Chili's in a while, so I cannot tell you my opinion on anything. Michael, you are my hero. I have no other way to describe how amazing you are to me. Really, I don't.

Yay you answered my question about the time! Now I feel so special, lol. Because right now your thing says 5:56 pm and it's 9:18 here. That's confusing.
Anyway, Tallulah I would ask your mom if you can or not. If she says no then don't.
I've haven't been to Chiles in a year or two. My family doesn't eat out much but I think I liked the fries there.=]

Oh, random question Micheal. What's your LEAST favorite Nancy Drew game?

cooolio said...

Tallulah said...

Viv, what the pickles is a spindle???? Yeah, I'm totally asking my mom. Hmm, everyone is talking about Chili's. I think this weekend I'm going to try to convince my dad to take me there for lunch... yum!

Michael- question- which movie would rather see- percy jackson, or harry potter part 1?

Alex c. said...

i mean harry potter 7 part 1

Tallulah said...

So are they making it into two movies or three???

Viv said...

2 movies, coming out 6 months apart. Tallulah, you don't know what a spindle is? haven't you ever seen the movie Sleeping Beauty? Gosh. Look it up, I don't feel like explaining.

Tallulah said...

Hey! Don't get all Napoleon Dynamite on me!!! What's that 'gosh' all about?!?! And you know I don't watch Disney Princess movies! It's not me and you should know that! Wait... I saw it once at Boo's house a few years ago... is it that thingie that spins the thread or whatever and starts glowing green, and then when SB pokes it she goes unconcious or pricks her finger or something??? That's what I remember. Whatevah.

Viv said...

Yup that's the spindle. haha.

101kittygal said...

hey micheal!!!! i am a huge fan!!!! (obviously from your walkthroughs) anywayy im only 12 and i watch your videos every day...... i just wanted to know if you had a cell phone..???

101kittygal said...

i also have a youtube account and always comment your videos... i have the same screenname on this as on youtube... you might remember some of the things i posted...

Tallulah said...

Haha spindle. 101kittygal, I don't think Michael is going to post his cell number on the internet if that's what you were wanting. Though I understand how it would be fun to chat with him (since he is totally and most definitely the Nancy Drew king, haha), it's not safe to put your phone number on the internet in case someone (just out of meanness and stupidity) decided to call Michael and say something rude, or track his phone number. Just saying. Sorry if that was offensive.

101kittygal said...

yeaa... i was going to post my number but i wanted to make sure he had a cell phone...

Danica Castro said...

wow. i don't have time right now. But thank you so much for this video! My dearly beloved Secret in the Haunted Mansion Nancy Drew game doesn't work anymore on our new computers....tragic AND frustrating. haha. Hopefully I can get to work with your awesome skills!

Ciara said...

Aw, thanks Michael! Actually it was my other older games that I could play on my XP laptop, but I couldn't on my Vista..like Carmen Sandiego and others... But I will definitely try this.
