Best Dang Auction Company Evah!

You may not know this about Mike and I… but we’re an auction family! Well, him and his family are. I came along for the ride the moment he and I started dating.

Wards Auctions has been around for many, many, MANY years. Mikes Dad (sarcastic, funny, smartass. Just like him!) is the fabulous auctioneer and the leader of the pack, and the whole dang fam jam helps out. Mikes Mom, Jayne, is the “Auction Goddess”, and his siblings and I are there as well helping out when we are needed.

Mike and I are ALWAYS in the office during auction days. I’m the auction princess and he’s the one who makes everything work and he makes our lives much easier with his “can fix any problem and answer any question” ways. He’s Wards wonder child. He knows it. We all knows it.

Gasp! I’mma Disney Princess!

A friend of mine’s little girl chatted me up this morning on Facebook and told me I’ve just GOT to try this “make yourself into a Disney princess” website. Normally, I wouldn’t do something like this (unless it involves creating a character on a video game). But she insisted and really wanted to turn me into a princess. So, with her help, here I am! A rock star of a Disney princess 😉

Eat your heart out, Ariel…

Gamer Girl

I am a gamer girl. I love video & computer games & I am very competitive when it comes to them. I’m a big hit with the boys with this handy little trait of mine. The moment they find out I enjoy playing Starwars: The Old Republic, the drool just flows. I’m a nerd at heart & I’m ok with that. Infact, I very much embrace it 😉

These are my top 5 games I most enjoy:

Starwars: The Old Republic:

Yep. That’s lightening. Loves it.

My boyfriend made me start playing this game about a year ago. I was hesitant at first, because although I do love Starwars, I wasn’t sure if I’d appreciate a game like this. But then I realized it was very much like The Sims, just a more grown up version. It was like Sims in space, in my mind. And I very much liked that idea. This game is wonderful because you can be good or bad, simply put. I first made up a girl who I made to look just like me. Don’t we all do that though? Yea, yea we do. Anyways, so my girl was awesome. And I decided to make her a total bitch. Every question anyone would ask me, I’d ALWAYS choose the most bitchy or sarcastic response. It was oh so much fun. She was smart. She was sassy. She was me. Minus the bitchy parts of her. She was also magic, so that was a major bonus for me. Then, I got bored of playing that way.so I made another character. She, again, looked like me but this time I played her all kindsa sweet & lovely. She helped anyone she could & kicked alot of ass. I have alot of fun playing this game, I love the different story lines & the graphics are just wonderful. I highly recommend it.

Minecraft:

I told you it was hard to explain…

This is an odd one. I don’t really know how to describe it to those who don’t know what it is. Let’s just say, it’s a weirdly wonderful game to play & I enjoy it. It’s essentially a game of survival, creativity & building. I can only play this one when my boyfriend is playing too though. This is because it’s more fun that way, but also because even though it’s such a dumb thing, I’m scared of playing it alone! Creepers & skeletons & all sorts of things make all kindsa noises & jump out at you all the time. And it scares me. I’m not ashamed to admit that.

Skylanders:

Gill is favorite.

Omgosh, this game is so much fun! It’s pretty much a kids game, they babysit you alot in it, but pfft. Who cares. It’s still amazing & WOW is it colorful. My boyfriend & I finished both the 1st & 2nd one in like less than a week in the past. I know that’s something I shouldn’t admit so freely, but we’re proud of ourselves for it. We saved the Skyland! Twice. It’s really so much fun though & quite funny as well. However in this game, my competitive side does come out quite a bit. I want to be the one with the most money & the most murders. So I sometimes hog all the money & kills, or try to at least. Mike is a sweetheart though & usually let’s me 😉

The Sims:

Awe. Twin girls! Don’t even act like that’s not exciting.

I don’t know what it is, but I’ve always loved this game. I love building my own house, meeting a hot guy, marrying said hot guy and having countless babies. I just love it. I love being able to pick out my job too! I would always either go for model or lawyer. And taking my little Sim family on vacations & whatnot, omgosh. So much fun. I remember once though, I left the computer to make a hot chocolate & my twin babies were crying for like ever, so that little beotch from child services took them away from me! I was like, whhhhaaat? So upsetting. And a rather adult thing to have in a made for tween game, now that I think about it. Hmm.

Hidden:

(I couldn’t find any screenshots for this game. But that just gives it even more mystery! Oooooh. Ahhhh.)

There are just 2 rules to make this game work. Get your friends together in a room. Turn off the lights. Do these things, and you’ll have the best night evah! My boyfriend & his brothers and I played this a while ago, it was my first time doing so, and wow. I’ve never had so much fun being terrified in my entire life! The game revolves around the retrieval of an escaped research subject with the twist that the subject is highly agile, incredibly strong and pretty much invisible. It’s very intense for both the hidden & non hidden players. I was told that I’m a rather devious player as the hidden. I take that as a major compliment.

So, there you have it. My little list of games. These are just the games I’ve played recently. I didn’t mention classics like Super Mario Bros. or the Aladdin game I finished and was SO proud of, all those years ago. Ahh, memories.

So take some time to play a game or two & enjoy being a nerdy nerd! Also, if people give you a hard time about it, just remember they are all just jealous of your awesomeness.

Peace, love & sarcasm,

Becky

Superpowers! You know you waaaant one.

Moms are always right.

Superpowers. We’ve all thought about them and we’ve all wished we had them. Which one is best you ask? Well, I’m no expert so I really can’t help you out. Sowwie!

………

Are the non believers gone? Those who either don’t care about superpowers or believed me when I said I couldn’t actually shed some light on the whole superpower thing? Phew! So it’s just us then, the awesomely wow folk who wish upon all the shooting stars that they could have even just one itsy bitsy little power of the super variety. Muahaha. I’mma good trixy trickster. It’s almost like, I have superpowers… or something. *GASP!*

So being the lamesauce and fantastical person that I am, I have dreamed of having superpowers forever. For reals. I often dream that I can fly and shoot lasers out of my eyes… simultaneously, while traveling back in time to ride a dinosaur and meet Albie Einstein (Aka- That really smart guy). All in a days work, right? RIGHT? Right. Ok, now that we’re all on the same page, let us discuss the powers that are super!

SUPER-AMAZING-FANTASTICAL-WONDEROUS! POWERS.

SUPER STRENGTH: This superpower can be found in losers like Hulk, Superman & Thor. ( Yep. That’s right, I said it. THEY SUCK. And I’ve fully prepared myself for the hate mail, so bring it on.) What can you do with this power, you ask? Well.. you get to be strong! Grrr-RAWRRR! You’ll be able to rip trees straight from the ground, ya know, in case you ever need to do that. You’ll be able to lift cars off of babies! Don’t know why babies are playing under cars, but who cares because YOU will get to save them! And you’ll be able to open very stubborn pickle jars. Yay! Everybody wins! This has never been a power I’ve really cared about having. However with that being said, when I go back and read what I just wrote, it sounds more and more appealing to me.

TELEPORTATION: This one, I want. Nightcrawler shares my enthusiasm as well because he also has this wicked awesome ability. Imagine instantly teleporting to any location in this world and beyond simply by willing it! Who wouldn’t want that? Lame people, that’s who. I bet Superman would be all “Meh. I don’t want that.” (Because he’s lame.) You have to be careful with this one though because you don’t want to be all “teleporty” and zap yourself too high up in the air or accidentally woosh yourself on the sun or something. If you’re wanting a tan, woosh to Hawaii or Mexico or your local Fabutan. Always remember, the sun is NOT for tanning. Still though, I want this one. I’ll take the risk. With great power, comes great bragging rights and I’d be ALL KINDSA bragging about this if I had it. And you would too.

INVULNERABILITY: Hulk & Super*lame*man has this one too. Sweet goodness, how many powers do they have?! Anyways, this one both intrigues & bores me, all at once. You’re immune to poison, corrosion, direct impact, radiation, and anything else that can kill you. Which yes, I can see why that would be helpful. But things like hunger, drowning, asphyxiation and old age you still have to worry about. Here’s my problem with this one. If I had it, I may start to get a little cocky after my 12th time jumping off the Empire State building just for kicks, and knowing me I’d totally forget that something as stupid as water could kill me. I’d be all jumping out of planes without a parachute and not realize I’m doing so above the Pacific Ocean. Then I’d be dead. And embarrassed to boot.

SHAPE SHIFTING: Mystique has this one. She’s kinda awesome. If I were her, I’d always morph into Jensen Ackles pillow. With this power, you can take on the appearance or shape of any person real or imagined and emulate any voice or scent. You can be anyone you’ve ever wanted to be. Identity theft has never been this easy! You could thief ALL the identities. The shape shifter is also potentially the ultimate prankster and is very hard to catch, which makes for very fun times in my opinion.

TELEPATHY: Professor Xavier enjoys this one. Simply put, you can read minds. I don’t think I’d want this. More importantly, I wouldn’t want anyone I know to have it! When my best friend asks me what I think of their new hair, the last thing I need is for them to know what I’m ACTUALLY thinking. I’mma lovely & sweet girl. I wish to keep it that way. But, a good (and funny) reason why it would be a gooder is if someone is getting on your nerves, just send images of Jack Black in a speedo directly to their noggin and enjoy the show! (Sorry to his fans. But even HE laughed at that.)

SUPER SPEED: The Flash & Superman gots this. The title says it all. You’re fast. Super fast. Kinda boring if you ask me. I don’t have much to say about this one, but all I will say is that I wouldn’t want it if I were a guy… (*wink* Get it? It’s a sex joke. Did you get it? See what I did there? *wink*)

MIND CONTROL: Again, Professor Xavier has this one in the bag. And again, it’s something I want nothing to do with! I don’t want to control minds or have anyone controlling mine. I want people to learn for themselves that I’m awesomesauce, I don’t wanna have to control them into thinking it. However, it would be benefitial for when I want flowers and chocolates personally delivered to me by Robert Downey Jr… Hmm.

SUPERHUMAN INTELLIGENCE: Brainiac rocks this one. (If he’s soooo smart, then why didn’t he come up with a more original name?) I’d love to have this one. Not that I’m not smart already (Muahaha. See? The fact that I even said that makes me smart.), but I want to be THE SMARTEST. What would I do if I had this power? Clear my schedule and go on Jeopardy. I’d be on for so many days. ALL the days. Yes, this one is in my top 3.

TIME TRAVEL: Oh man. I adore this one. The time travelers wife is a favorite book of mine and I just love the whole idea of it. I’d do so many things! Everyone tells me that I was born in the wrong decade. I’m more of a top hat and frilly dress kinda girl, I love all things vintage. I’d go back and buy ALL the lovely dresses, I’d meet Audrey Hepburn, and I’d go way back and meet a dinosaur! Maybe I’d even steal a long-neck-a-saurus’s egg, bring it with me to the present time and make my own Jurassic Park! One with only that one dinosaur though. Wouldn’t be much of a park I guess, hmm. I may have to rethink that. But, this traveling through time thing also comes with a warning. Judging from nearly every time-travel story ever written, this power may have you making a mess of our reality more than anything else. It’s a risk I’d totally take though. Screw you all. I’mma bring back vintage dresses & dinosaur eggs!

FLIGHT: Superman, again, has this. I want this simply because flights these days are so pricey and I want to travel! I’d still take teleportation over this one though, but it would be a fun and handy power to show off.

Now that I’ve done the top super-amazing-fantastical-wonderous-wonderful powers, allow me to shed some light on the less common powers. I now present you with…

THE MOST USELESS “STUPID-POWERS” NOBODY WOULD WANT.

ACID TEARS: This one would be nice for my enemies to have. I’d show them photos of the Titanic & clips from The Notebook to make them cry! Muahaha! *cough* I mean, no. I’d never do that. Whaaa?

BULLET ATTRACTION: No, I don’t mean you’re wanting to “do bullets”, as they say. (Is that what they say? I don’t think anyone has ever said that before me.) I mean bullets are attracted to you like white on rice! Or brown on rice. Depending on which you like best. I like brown better, but I’d rather none because I dislike rice. Anyways, bullets from any gun around you would be all up in your business. Nobody needs that.

ABSORB BAD LUCK: Well you may as well just go find & lose a rabbits foot, for goodness sakes. (Sweet goodness, I’ve been watching far too much Supernatural.)

SPLIT SECOND SUPER-STRENGTH: Remember my whole thing on how great it would be to save babies by lifting cars off of them? Could you do that all in a split second? Would you want to risk being squished by that car? And think of the baby. AWKWARD!

SUPER SLOW-MO SPEED: Eh. Just think of how terrible life would be if we had to see movies with Sacha Baron Cohen in slow-mo. ‘Nuff said. I think I’d be wishing I had bullet attraction at that point. (No offense to him. I’m sure he’s just a fine sort. When he’s not doing the things he does & all.)

Well, that’s my list. There are many more I know. I just like these ones best. If you’d like to add to the list, leave a comment. Or maybe I’ll make a part two! Or maybe just leave a comment. We shall see. And if you’d like to dislike me for bashing Superman so much, well go ahead. Even though while writing this, I realized that he has SO many powers, I also realized that he may have TOO many powers. Batman & Ironman are still favorites though. Sowwie Stupidman. (GASP!) I mean…

Peace, love & sarcasm,

Becky

One of my superpowers is that I look like Ariel!
