Creative Christmas: Day 7

Ho, ho, ho, internet!

Kim of Later Levels has created this awesome Christmas community collaboration event thingy, and I’m in, I guess. Basically, there are 12 holiday themed questions you answer on set days, in a format of your choosing. Answer as many as you want, however you want to! Go check out the official post if you wanna get involved.

Today’s question:

Your help must have worked, because it’s now Christmas morning and presents are under the tree! There’s a fancy box with your name on it; which gaming-related item are you hoping is inside?

My Answer:

I would probably faint if Santa left me a working replica of Lightning Farron’s gunblade under the tree this year. It’s definitely my favourite video game weapon (I even wrote a sales pitch story for it). All I’d need is pink wig and I could totally pretend to be my shero while wielding it! I’d use it responsibly too, and NOT go chase down mindless internet hater trolls with it… honest.

I also wish I could defy gravity like most JRPG protagonists can.

To go off on a bit of a related tangent – I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas day! Due to family drama related reasons I will not go into, I don’t know my extended family very well (and that’s a good thing, I think). I spend Christmas with my parents in their middle of nowhere residence (satellite internet… *shudders*). Since I was a kid, it has always been just the 3 of us and it’s pretty laidback. I spent the day working on my blog, playing Super Mario Odyssey, and EATING EVERYTHING IN SIGHT! *pats stomach*

I wasn’t a huge fan of this game at first, but Mario finally stole my cranky heart right after I bought his pirate costume. Yarr!!

My birthday was on Christmas Eve too. And no, I don’t get double the presents like everyone thinks. Santa and the season always steal my thunder so I don’t celebrate it. My parents take me out to eat every year, and that’s all I want/need. After I reached the legal drinking age in my country, getting older every year started sucking anyway ๐Ÿ˜› Oh and I have an excuse to eat chocolate brownie birthday cake along with all the other holiday goodies, so there’s that! Far from the worst birthday ever, that’s for sure.

Things can always be worse! Just sayin’

For the first time in years, we had snow on Christmas morning! Unfortunately, the rain took it out soon after, and then a windstorm knocked out power for that night. Luckily, the food was cooked already so it was a nice Christmas supper under candlelight. It made me realize what’s important in life, and extra thankful that the Nintendo Switch runs on a battery. Here’s a few pictures of snowy nowhere, and what Santa actually left me under the tree this year. I wish everyone a superb 2018, and a happy rest of the holiday season.

  1. Well slappy birthday, madam! Another year, another deer. Another deer, another beer. That’s the old saying in England. It isn’t, actually, I just made that up.

    You taken to Super Mario Odyssey yet? I loved it, I’m just so disappointed by how short it is. Stupid. Stoopid!

  4. Happy (slightly belated) Birthday!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€
    Sounds like such a nice time with your family.
    And yay, glad you’re enjoying Odyssey now. It looks like a lot of fun. ๐Ÿ™‚


  5. Sorry to hear about your family issues. I too would feud with my relatives if my sister insisted on marrying a jackass who wears a trench coat. You lost power because of the weather? Once again Snow gives you trouble Lightning.
