The newest 100 theme challenge topic is happiness, and I have to admit, this is a very difficult one for me. Happiness has been very hard to come by in recent years, what with our neighborhood going downhill and the inevitable moment when we realized that we were going to have to leave, as it was never going to get better. Being forced to flee one’s home against their will is bad enough, but it grows worse still when one starts to realize that the place to which we were forced to retreat may not be the safe haven we had hoped for. No, happiness is still not ours, nor has it been for a very long time. So…what would happiness be for me?Continue reading 100 Theme Challenge No. 29: Happiness
I haven’t talked about my Siamese cat sisters, Rosalina and Carmelita, all that much lately, so I thought I would, once again, recount a few things about my precious, little angels. Because you can never talk too much about your pets. To start, both cats like sitting on Mother Duck’s lap. Usually, Carmelita sits on her lap during the first half of the day, and Rosalina sits on her lap in the evenings. I have no idea why they won’t sit on me during the day time, but…Continue reading Cat Naps in People Laps
The night of 2/3/21, I had one of those weird dreams where you keep “waking up”, only to realize it’s just another dream. The dream began with zombies in our house (it didn’t look like any house we had ever lived in before, though). Mother Duck and I had trapped the zombies somewhere, and we were trying to figure out what to do about them. These were rather strange zombies, though. They didn’t just eat brains. Rather, they had a ravenous hunger for anything and everything, and there was a very real possibility that, if these zombies escaped, they would somehow manage to eat the world’s supply of food so quickly, everyone on the planet would starve and die before it could be replenished! (Such an idea seems pretty absurd now, but in my dream, it seemed very dire indeed! Seriously, how could just a handful of zombies eat that much food so quickly? How would they even cross the ocean? Would they board planes? Zombies don’t have passports!)Continue reading I Dream of Hungry Zombies
Hey, everyone, about two weeks ago, I posted a little status update about a recent eBay auction. It was my second auction, but the very first one where I actually won. You see, I had been eyeing these Funko Pops of the Miser Brothers (from The Year Without a Santa Claus), but they’re pretty expensive.Continue reading Miser Brothers Funko Pops
In recent times, an old treat from my ducklinghood has returned. Perhaps you remember it…Dunkaroos was a snack from the 90’s that included small cookies that you dunked (hence the name) in frosting. (In fact, they’re kind of like those snacks where you get several crackers and can spread cheese on them. Which were also a childhood favorite of mine.) I remember enjoying these quite a bit when I was young, and though they were apparently discontinued, I recently learned that they’re back! Naturally, I just had to try them to see if they’re as good as I remember.Continue reading Dunkaroos Are Back: The Duck’s Verdict
I won my first auction on eBay last night. (You guys might remember my post about my first auction where I attempted to get the collector’s edition of Ni no Kuni.) I’m really tired now because it required me to be up at a weird hour of the night. It was worth it, though. I got a rare Funko Pop for $80 less than usual.
Can you guess which Funko I got? I’ll give you a hint. “He’s Mr. White Christmas, he’s Mr. Snow”!
The night of 11/21/20, I had another very interesting set of dreams that included another weird visit to Disneyland and a flight through a virtual world. In the first dream, there was a special event in Disneyland, and each ride had this checklist of sorts. If you managed to complete every item on the list, you would either receive or get a chance to win a special prize for that particular ride. Well, as is often the case in such dreams, I never have much time at Disneyland because the time goes by so quickly. So I decided I had to at least visit my favorite ride, the Haunted Mansion, of course.Continue reading I Dream I’m a Fairy on a Broomstick
Late though it may be, I wanted to share with you all how my Christmas went this year. Despite 2020 being a wacky time indeed, Mother Duck and I still managed to have a pleasant little Christmas with our Siamese kitties Rosalina and Carmelita, who also got a little something for Christmas. From movies to gifts, below is just a little summary of how Christmas 2020 went for the Duck of Indeed.Continue reading Christmas 2020: Vintage Movies, Cat Toys, and Lots of Funkos
Merry Christmas, dear readers! To celebrate this most festive of days, I have a silly little story to share with you all! We were recently watching YouTuber Barry Lewis make a tiny gingerbread house (video below), and it inspired us to make our own…except it wouldn’t be tiny, and it wouldn’t be made of gingerbread! Since we felt like cobbling together a miniature house out of whatever we happened to have lying around, we decided to make…a graham cracker house, decorated with old Halloween candy (we didn’t plan on eating it anyway) and any other appropriate ingredients!Continue reading A Festive Graham Cracker House…and Grumpy Snowman
About two weeks before Christmas, Mother Duck and I had a rather fun weekend involving the yearly Christmas festival. For the first time ever, the event spanned two days instead of just one in an effort to decrease the crowd levels, and we…well, we actually went both days, summoned as we were by the call of delicious festival food.Continue reading Fried Christmas Treats and Free Movies
