Unboxing Two 1998 Furbies

Back when I was a duckling, Furbies were one of those toys that everyone simply had to have. In case you’re unfamiliar, Furbies were these little furry robots that could talk and interact with you. You could feed them by pressing down on their tongue with your finger, click the button on their tummy to simulate petting them, and turn them sideways to play with them. They would even interact with other Furbies if you had more than one.

I Dream I’m a Fairy on a Broomstick

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.

Christmas 2020: Vintage Movies, Cat Toys, and Lots of Funkos

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.

A Festive Graham Cracker House…and Grumpy Snowman

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!

Hollow Knight Color Palettes

In the past, I had seen some artists on DeviantArt try their hand at using color palettes to color their pictures.  It looked like a rather fun, little challenge, so I hunted down those color palettes myself in order to try out some of my own.  I had recently played Hollow Knight, and due to the game’s unique art style, I thought it would be a great choice for some color palette goodness!

2019 Art Summary

I’ve now been on Deviant Art for two full years, which means it’s time for another art summary!  Looking over last year’s summary, I’m happy to say that I’ve certainly improved.  Since last year, I’ve gotten much better at coloring eyes, and I’ve also been experimenting on better ways to color hair.  This upcoming year, I’d like to start drawing more dynamic poses and more complex images in general, with more action and possibly more character interaction, as well.  Here’s to another year of doodling!

Over a Month with Carmelita and Rosalina

G’day, everyone, just thought I’d write a little update concerning our two new kittens, Rosalina and Carmelita.  Both kittens had several vet visits recently to finish their vaccines and to take care of a little tapeworm issue, but other than that, they’ve been quite happy and healthy and have grown a bit, too!  Carmelita was a whopping six pounds when last we checked, while tiny Rosalina, probably the runt, was only three or four (I forget…or she gained a pound between vet appointments).

The Duck’s Disneyland Attraction Tour 2019 Part 2

Last time, I discussed Disneyland rides ranking from #11-21.  Now it’s time to get to the good stuff, the Duck’s top 10 Disneyland rides!  Let’s just get on with it! Continue reading The Duck’s Disneyland Attraction Tour 2019 Part 2

The Duck’s Disneyland Attraction Tour 2019 Part 1

I’ve already discussed my most recent Disneyland trip in a 3-part post.  And I’ve ranked all of the food and desserts we have had so far last week, as well.  All that leaves now is the best part of all, the rides.  As I always do, I like to create a grand list of every ride (and show, as the Enchanted Tiki Room is now getting a place in this list) we’ve ever been on, including those we haven’t done recently.  Keep in mind that this list is going to be generally as unbiased as I can make it.  I mean, of course a list ranking Disneyland’s attractions in order of my preference is going to be biased, but I’m at least not going to let my terror during a few of them cloud my judgement.  (Also, italics mean I didn’t visit the attraction during our most recent trip.)  So, from least great to most great, read on to discover the Duck’s Disney rides ranking from 11-21!

The Duck’s Disneyland Dessert Tour 2019

In my last post, I ranked the foods we ate at Disneyland, and this time, we get to the good stuff, the desserts.  I’m going to rank some things we had in previous years (in italics), as well, but if you want to read my 2017 post and 2018 post, here they be.  Now, without further ado… Continue reading The Duck’s Disneyland Dessert Tour 2019
