Hi everyone, I am super excited to announce my new video game spinoff blog, No Quarters Required. It’s basically Gameplay Sunday all week long.
For those of you who want MORE video game talk, you’re in luck! It’s over there. For those of you who want LESS video game talk, you are also in luck! Everyone wins. Pretty cool, right?
This blog will still be the home of all my knitting and personal posts. If you’re only interested in the personal stuff, don’t worry about following No Quarters Required. If you don’t want to miss out on any of the video game chit chat, then head on over and friend me, follow me, subscribe to me, LOVE ME. (I will love you back. I promise.)
No Quarters Required will also offer a safe, inclusive space for all. I have set up an extremely strict comments moderation policy to weed out the jerks, so that you don’t have to worry about being hassled by a bunch of trash-talking twelve year olds.
All of the old Sims Sunday posts are going to stay on this site, because I am too lazy to move them. However, from this point forward, Sims posts will be published on No Quarters Required. That won’t happen until The Sims 4 is released, though. I will say something here when I start writing Sims posts again, because I know some of you only care about the Sims stuff, not video game stuff as a whole.
However, I have moved over the more recent content (Skyrim and Mass Effect) to fill out the space.
I’m also not going to be making video game jokes in my regular Twitter account anymore. (I’m sure some of you will be relieved to hear it.) Instead, all video game-related Tweets are going to happen over at the No Quarters Required Twitter account.
I’m planning to go to a Monday/Wednesday/Friday posting schedule here.
This morning I heard some odd noises from the chicken coop. One of the hens was working herself up to either a full-on “I laid an egg” cackle, or she was going to crow like a rooster. Hard to say. (They do both. It’s kind of a hormonal thing in post-menopausal chickens.)
Eventually the noise settled down, and I went outside to check on the nest box, just to see. I truly did not expect to find anything there. I mean, these are old hens. How long do chickens lay eggs, anyway? Not usually this long. But there’s always the off chance of getting an egg or two every once in a while.
Well, I found five. Oops!
This one is all on me. Obviously I have been snoozing on the job. I cleaned the coop a week ago, so I know that the eggs are no more than seven days old. Chickens usually lay an egg a day. These two, a little less often than that. It’s hard to say if all five were laid by one hen, or if they were both laying.
Anyway, they always tell you that eggs are sterile. That they don’t need refrigeration, as long as you don’t wash off the outer coating, and you keep them at a reasonable temperature. Our temps have been in the 50s.
Still though… I just can’t do it. I think I’m going to have to chuck these in the compost heap.
(It would be a more difficult decision if I hadn’t just bought an 18-pack of eggs at the store yesterday.)
What do you think, eat or not?
