Knock, knock! Housekeeping!
This post is… exactly what the title suggests it is. There are a couple of things I want to mention without making my regular posts any longer or more excitement-packed than they already are, so here goes!
Number One is this:
Sorry, I was halfway through cropping that when a wasp attacked me IN MY LIVING ROOM. Let’s try again, shall we?
Better. And a real Christmas miracle for that matter! A lot of you probably got this notification ages ago and were all “meh, cool, whatever,,” but a n00b blogger gets really excited about these things, and adds extra commas out of giddiness, so please allow me a very brief happy dance. (You won’t have to watch, I promise.)
500 likes! That’s the same as…
– the number of days of summer for Joseph Gordon-Levitt
– half the number of miles I would walk to fall down at your door*
Basically, it’s a lot, and I couldn’t have done it without you guys! Literally… that number isn’t even a measure of things I did, it’s a measure of the times you pressed a button to humour me and my silly sims.
So, to say THANK YOU THANK YOU I DON’T DESERVE YOU, I wanted to do something special. I looked at who the 500th person to press that “Like” button was… It was MichelleLynn01, author of The Insanity Family Backwards ISBI! Michelle, check your TS3.com account, ‘cause I gifted you this:
I know, it’s a crappy wall gecko. But as such, it feels like an appropriate offering from the Langurds to the Kooks, don’t you think? XD Hope you don’t already have it, ‘cause that would be awkward.
*I do a great interpretive dance to that song at wine nights.
Number Two! Liebster questions from laserkatt!
1. If you had to pick any career or profession from the sims games (any) to do yourself, which one would you choose?
Gahhh! I’m a fragile young graduate who flinches at the word “career.” I want to be a writer/editor IRL, but I hate playing writer Sims. Maybe Acrobat for the costumes? Oooh, or Interior Designer.
2. If you could only listen to five albums for the rest of your life, which ones would you pick?
The Music in the Wood – Tanglefoot
Archangel – Two Steps from Hell
Save Rock and Roll – Fall Out Boy
The Lord of the Rings Soundtrack – Howard Shore
Greatest Hits – Queen
Sadly I am programmed to get bored of absolutely everything, so this would still end in me tearing out my eardrums.
4. How many legacies/challenges have you attempted (and completed if ever)?
Herp de derp, can I skip this one? Well alright… 9 Legacies + 2 Asylum Challenges + 1 Prosperity Challenge = 0 success stories. Do I get an award for that? XD
5. Do you ever do anything creative other than writing?
I actually have an Etsy store and a sewing blog that I’m in the process of setting up! I also play piano and drums, draw, write comics, and carve pumpkins. (So like, I guess so.)
6. Last series/thingy you binge watched, or just enjoyed thoroughly? (I know some people have lives, what the hell) Would you recommend it?
Life? Netflix IS life. Currently working on Downton Abbey, which has tripled my tea intake and made me want to wear fancy hats and say the word “luncheon” all the time.
7. How long have you been active within the sims community? (writing a blog counts as being active)
I made my first blog in the summer of 2011. But before that, back in 2005 or something, I used to upload stories on the TS2 Exchange. #cavemandayz
8. Are there any other games besides the sims that you love?
I’m a Nintendo loyalist (Pokémon Forever) and a DDR champion. Tbh I’m scared to get into much else because I fall hard into fiction and may never resurface. However, if anyone has recommendations…
9. If you had the opportunity to tweak one thing in Sims 3 to make it better, what would you do?
I would correct the grammar in all the pop-ups. I’m sorry, that’s the lamest answer ever, but it would help me sleep at night.
10. Pick a tumblr-fandom to set fire to.
11. so i herd u liek mudkips
Squirtle says it all.
This website’s three-year anniversary is coming up on July 12th, and I have some plans! Why am I calling it an anniversary? This blog is very, VERY single. Let’s just call it a birthday. You’re all invited to the party and we’re gonna get krunk. #LangurdBirthdayBash2015
Okay no, but really, I need your simselves for the festivities. In no particular order (I lied, it’s alphabetical) here are the poor unfortunate souls I already have in my clutches:
If you want to be a part of a really fun time (disclaimer: enter at your own peril), you have until about July 10th to link me your simself. If you’re on the list and you’d rather not take your chances with this super secret mission, that’s fine too! Just let me know in the comments and I’ll count you out.
Thanks, I’m all done now. Consider your pillows fluffed and your minibars full. Housekeeping out.
