One Last Stocking Hurrah


The supposed rush of the holiday shopping season has come and gone.  And, all of the stockings were well picked over.  But, as you make your way over trails of debris from crazy careless shoppers, ignoring the flickering fluorescent lights and droning Muzak, you find a surprisingly colorful selection of stockings still on their hooks, next to what’s left of the wreaths and Christmas lights.


Unfortunately, this store isn’t putting anything on clearance for another few weeks.  But, some of these are too good to pass up.  I know which ones I’d get.


Valentines, Wave Dos (Two)


Are ya ready for some more valentiiines?  A valentine partyyyy.  We get frank and audacious…to get the party started.  Come on over and look at all the puns and sights.  Cuz we got five more days to make those we love feel all right.  **Super Sunday Night Valentine Footsie**  [Ehem, or, whatever.]

Let’s start where I left off with more clothed hearts.


Next, more character hearts.


A few more silhouette-ish hearts.


And, the rest I’ll call a hodge podge.


Now, be good little cupids and give these to those who fit the descriptions.  [And, maybe just laugh at a few designed with my rare flares of humor.]


Video Game Memories in the Chat Cafe Space

Halloween may be gone, but I am not done with Autumn, yet.  No, I am not in any mood to welcome winter.  But, I am at a loss for what decorations to post until I finally get into the Christmas spirit (which usually takes until mid-December for personal reasons).  So, for now, I am leaving a few colorful leaf trails.

AND, as a sort of gift to myself…if you readers like, you can share it, as well–a fond memorial of video games past.  Every now and then, I like to tap into that youthful side that used to like sitting on the bed or floor with a bowl of cereal and a joystick or controller.  It feels wrong doing it at my age.  But, video games are a drug habit I have yet to fully kick.  I am not crazy about the latest versions and all the war business.  I dislike all the new complexities when video games used to be so simple and enjoyed by two people in the same room with no more than an hour–if that–required.  Yet, despite my stubbornness toward change, I have taken a shine to a few over the years and do make small adjustments to my thinking.  But, I still would pass up all the new to spend an hour with someone playing pinball tanks from the Combat cartridge for my old Atari 2600.  Or, Joust.  Or, the arcade version of Warlords (cuz the Atari 2600 version was just plain awful).

So, be sure to check out the new wallpapers.  I know, they’re not as much fun with the Chat Cafe print tacked on.  But, they is what they is, ye kno’?

Shall we play a game?
