Cave Clutter: forests, ocarinas, and fables

It’s been all sorts of busy over here in the Great White North. I had my two weeks of vacation at the end of August, where I tried to fit in as much gaming and relaxation as I could. And then right after that, I was thrown into a major project at work, and I’m still working on it actually. Complete website redesigns are a lot of work, I tell ya. And it was really hard to go from waking up at noon/going to sleep at 4am to walking up at 7am/attempted to fall asleep before 11pm. I’m pretty certain my brain had been zombified for a while.

Silly Wurm Online Screenshots

I know that I’m a little late on my weekly post. I blame it on having 2 weeks off from work and trying to fit in as much gaming and fun times as possible. Not to mention sleeping in until noon every day. *cough*

There’s still some Fable: The Lost Chapters to be played, and then I’m going to be setting up the N64 so I can finally finish Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time…so a more complete post will have to wait. In the meantime, enjoy these random silly screenshots I’ve taken over the years I’ve played Wurm Online!
