My Favorite Things: July 2015
My Favorite Things is a monthly blog linkup to share what you love, hosted by Raisa. I’ve been wanting to participate in this for a while, but 1) I left for Oklahoma last month and 2) I kept forgetting.
Porkchop ‘n Flatscreen
Porkchop ‘n Flatscreen (PCFS) is a web series by Emezie about teens attending some kind of ninja school. It’s cute, funny, kind of silent… Updates take a long while to come through, but Episode 8 of the series is due any day now. Below is Episode 1.
“Good For You” by Selena Gomez
She’s growing up so fast! Except… she isn’t. She’s just one year younger than me, but there’s something about watching people from my generation on television that makes them feel younger—like they’re never supposed to age. She’s come a long way, and I’m really proud of and happy for her.
Philly Swirl treats
Philly Swirl makes tasty Italian ice without peanuts, tree nuts, soy, eggs, dairy, and gluten. It’s difficult to find icy treats that are allergen-friendly, and these babies have become my absolute favorites.
I’ve been playing this off and on for a while… it takes a while to do some of the quests, because, though you can’t see it in the screen shot, there are actually logic puzzles in this game that are similar to other logic puzzles—Sudoku, Dominoes, Checkers and Tetris, for example—and you have to move stones into places. Like, there might be two paint splatters on tiles and two stone blocks off to the side, and you have to move those two stone blocks over each of the paint splatters to unlock a secret room. Otherwise, and at a glance, it looks like you’re just clearing squares from places and collecting materials. You have to actually think. Another puzzle, for example, consisted of math problems; a quest that I didn’t complete in time was basically a history lesson.
