For those that don’t know already, I have a YouTube account called Lady Dust Bunny. It’s just lots of random me stuff and gaming, etc. Well, today I got a game by Ninja Theory (the same people that made Heavenly Sword) called “Enslaved: Odyssey to the West”. I decided to start recording my first play through of the game for everyone’s enjoyment. I know when I don’t have time to play something, I love to watch it through YouTube videos, so hopefully, some of you guys will want to do that too!

Anyway, blah blah blah, here’s the link!


Voluntary Descent!

October 13, 2010

There is a really weird thing that happens when people get hurt in public as opposed to when they get hurt in private. I’m pretty sure we’ve all experienced it at one time or another. You fall and scrape your knee, get up and laugh and make fun of yourself when others are around.

In a private situation, that scenario plays out a lot differently.

Or maybe you’re falling out of a tree. In a private situation, you may easily exclaim your fears about your impending doom.

But if you are in public, this situation must be enacted in a different way. When falling from a tree, you must act like you are voluntarily choosing to descend at a rapid pace from the tree top to the very hard, very solid ground below.

Then again, perhaps this weird human instinct isn’t quite appropriate in all situations….



Super Motivated, sorta…

September 19, 2010

Ever have those moments when you’re super motivated? What about when you just plain procrastinate or plan to be productive? I’m having one of those, I’m super motivated about planning to be productive tomorrow, moments.

I just started to work on my 3D project when I realized I had severely messed up my reference drawing. After restarting it about 3 times, I got frustrated and decided to not work on it tonight and to re-draw the model. I have to sketch it up, perfectly, so I can use it to model my futuristic train. It’s simple enough, except for the front of it. It’s a very curvy train and so it scares me.

But! I had an idea! I’m drawing my new sketch on graph paper so I know my lines are straight and my curves are consistent! YAY GRAPH PAPER! Also, I’ve been avoiding having to drive all the way to Metairie (about an hour from where I live now) to go pick up my anatomy test book from my mom’s. I suppose I will have to do that tomorrow as well. Oh blah.

Anyway, I added a new link on the side bar! It’s to one of my favorite webcomics, Boxer Hockey. I went to school with the creator and even met him…and then I think I creeped him out by squeeling at him about how awesome his webcomic is….hm…anyway, he’s super nice and totally awesome and the webcomic is hilarious! And if you’re too lazy for scrollin’, then click here!

And now, a picture of something!

Worst Way to Wakeup

September 16, 2010

You know what probably the WORST feeling is when you wake up? Having a headache. This is just a setup for the rest of your day! All day you’re gonna feel like crap in a crap-basket! That’s what I’ve woken up with this morning. AND I HATE IT?!

This picture is to represent waking up with a headache, though easily mistaken for an exorcism.


September 12, 2010

I don’t know why I’m sooo excited right now about food! Oh wait, yes, I do. I ate like 5 cupcakes today and napped most of the day (yes, my life is sad), but now I’m starving! Anywho, I have placed an order with P.F. Chang’s that I get to go pick up soon! EEEEE! I just want it now. The husband is going to be coming home from work soon and he has no idea how much food I ordered….

I shall update with pics later!!!


haha, yeeeeah, I totally forgot to take a picture of our P.F. Chang’s banquet. I went to go pick up the food at the restaurant and I thought I was going to strangle the guy behind the counter. He was very nice, but he proceeded to take EVERYTHING out of the bag and make sure it was right. At that point, being as hungry as I was, I didn’t care what was in the bag, I was going to eat it!

Though, after I ate my meal, I was glad he checked. What if I had gotten home and there was a goat in the bag. Like, a live goat. What then?

Then what?

Octipus New Techniques!

September 7, 2010

I tried out some new techniques with drawing and digital painting today.

Remind me to re-calibrate the colors for my two monitors…this image looks WAAAAY different on the one I actually painted it on… 😦

Why Did I Name my Blog “Spaghetti and a Meatball”?

September 5, 2010

The short answer – I was in the mood for spaghetti and one singular meatball.

That night I ended up making some spaghetti and meatballs. It wasn’t very good, but I think I know what went wrong, so I shall try again soon!

And okay, there is no long answer here. I just had a craving and it was all I could think about. I tried to think of something a little more clever or catchy, but then my stomach kept growling and I had recently bought all of the ingredients. So there I was, typing “Spaghetti and a Meatball” when I remembered just how significant that actually was for me.

My favorite spaghetti and meatball dish is the one that my mom makes. She makes THE BEST sauce and meatballs around! When I was in kindergarten, the teacher had us make “About Me” posters to present to the class. I remember working on it at home with my mom and one of the things we had to answer was about our favorite food. I remember saying “Spaghetti and Meatballs!” and my mom had helped me draw it on my poster!

This memory warmed my heart and so I’m actually very satisfied about my blog’s title. 😀

Hope this makes you go, “Awwww…”, if not, then you’re probably going to hell and no one can save you at this point.  G’night!!!
