Birthday Gifts

No donut, alas. Just a store-bought chocolate chip cookie... sugar-free. I ate it anyway.


Ph.Duck and The Nurse (ret.) stopped in for about an hour or so. First time I've seen either of them in the flesh since the hospital. They brought with them two bottles of Sprite, which was heavenly. It's been water and juices all year... and some kool-aid,  which in the right circumstance can be awfully tasty.

Do you remember an entertaining trifle called Go! Go! Nippon? I really enjoyed the thing, and ridiculously enough, liked the geographic bits as much as I did the two heroines, Makoto and Akira. Like most of us dedicated fans... and you have to be considering the amount of weebhate thrown at it, the hope was for a new DLC or, miracle of miracles, a new GGN game. Time passed, and the 2015 date of the last update receded in the mirror. It seemed unlikely that we'd ever see the girls again.

On April 22nd, that all changed. That is when I  discovered that they two of them are VTubers now, and have been for eight months.... and if they got 10000 subs, a new GGN! game would go into production!

On my birthday they reached that 10K goal. There's going to be a new version of GGN! Okay, look, I know it's not much, but that was a nice birthday gift to get.

And in the best gift of all, Big Papa Pixy has found the four missing years and wrangled them back into place on the sidebar. They probably fell under a server rack somewhere and he found it as he prepares to decade to a new residence.  Thank you, Pixelmator! You're the ginchiest!

All right, you apes! You wanna blog forever? Get back to work... um... blogging.

1 Resurrected archives, though! Hot dang!
(More GGN? So, "Even More Geographical Tidbits: The Sequel" or branching out to new locations?)

2 Happy birthday, Wonderduck!  I see you've already found your present.

3 It's just what I've always wanted, Pixy!
GD, we dunno yet. My guess is more locations, more romance, maybe even a new character.  I'm giddy with anticipation.

5 Out of the loop so long, just wanted to check in.  I was afraid you were going to pull an SDB on me.  Hang in there buddy, it is a great comfort to see you still posting!  I miss those old days.

6 ASTRO you old miscreant. How are you?
KATHRYN, thank you kindly. Pixy's system plays poorly on smartphones... even writing this comment is a trial. I read do need to get the next installment of My Hospital Life out. It's far and away the worst one though... even thinking about it makes me shake my head in sadness.

7 Wonderduck, I'm still hanging in there, same as always, just not blogging anymore.  I'm a miscreant now though it seems, so I guess I need to adjust.  I'm going to have to go look that word up to see if we're still friends...
