Happy Page Update #17-50

This week on The Happy Page: Christmas Candy!

Okay, full disclosure: I actually don’t like hard candy very much. But I love watching the guy at Lofty Pursuits make hard candy on his 19th century candymaking equipment, creating wonders for a shop full of awed customers.

A World Full of Monsters: Bad Thoughts

Ancient Fire isn’t stopping, so neither can Task Force 27. But the work they do takes its toll…

Happy Page Update #17-49

This week on The Happy Page: Is your office boring? Maybe it could use a little bit of holiday magic.

Oh, here’s a little advice for anyone who’s been thinking they still need to try those Oreo candy canes: Don’t. They aren’t awful, but they don’t taste like an Oreo. Oh, and the Hot Chocolate Oreos don’t taste like hot chocolate, either. Oreo is having an off season, I think. In other holiday treat news, the Hostess hot chocolate flavored mini donuts also don’t taste a whole lot like hot chocolate, but if you can find a bag you won’t care because they’re delicious. I haven’t seen any limited edition holiday Pringles yet, but I’m on the lookout for them. Boxes of Pumpkin Spice Twinkies were on sale in a $1 bin, which should tell you something about how well that worked out, and another American version of Kinder Eggs has appeared on the holiday treat scene with a product design which sort of rams home the point that our own corporate overlords are convinced we’re too stupid to avoid eating the toy by mistake. Holiday M&Ms this year have been pretty meh, Hershey’s Kisses have thankfully not tried to get creative again, the Jelly Belly candy cane display is Willy Wonkesque enough to make up for Oreo’s mistake, and I managed to score the only package of Archway Iced Gingerbread that seems to have existed at Walmart since the holiday cookie display went up a few weeks ago. 😀

Have your own holiday-specific treats you’d like to add to this? Leave them in the comments below!

Site Update!

Not sure if anyone had noticed, but the site was sort of…broken? It was, it’s fixed now, but I had to make some changes. I’m sure you’ve already noticed we have a new theme, and the navigation is different. I may need to make a few tweaks over the next week or so, but don’t worry, everything’s still here! Stories on AO3 is now under Stories in the left-hand menu. A World Full of Monsters is now displaying in its entirety on its TOC page, which it wasn’t doing before – had to re-create the series and then manually reload all 35 chapters into it, but those are the breaks. And if you check the sidebar again, you’ll notice that the GKG Twitter feed is displaying right under the Facebook feed.

I should probably warn you that, like many other people, I tend to be a little more…direct on Twitter than I usually am elsewhere on social media. And I follow people because 1) they followed me first, 2) I find their feeds entertaining and/or 3) I also follow them elsewhere on social media. I follow some really strange, diverse, interesting people over there, is what I’m saying, and I don’t necessarily agree with everything they say and every opinion they hold. If you follow me will I follow you back? Probably.

Tomorrow’s fiction post will probably be late, as in you should expect it tomorrow night not tomorrow morning, but you will get one! And you may also get a new cat post, because we added a new kitty to the clan tonight and he will have to be properly introduced – when that happens will depend on when I can get a good picture of him..

Happy Page Update #17-48

This week on The Happy Page: Yes, I know the movie won’t be out until December 20th. Still an awesome timelapse maker video!

Yes, I do have a copy of the board game, but mine is in a thin cardboard box and it was made by Milton Bradley. On the plus side (?), you can play mine all day long and not get sucked into Jumanji. 😉
