Johnson County Museum

I had a chance to go to the Johnson County Museum the other day and it was a really cool little museum. I recommend it to anyone in the area. There’s a lot of talk about how the KC area grew over the years, some stuff about an ammunition plant here that supplied the military for World War II, and even a really slick 1955 Chevy Bel Air.

Sunday there was something in the air here, some pollen or something, and it caused a horrible allergy attack. I took a Benadryl(okay, so it was generic, ’cause I’m frugal like that), and it wiped me out for the whole day. I felt like a zombie. Well, except for the craving brains part. Eww.

You all really should take a look at the Youtube channel SayWhatPabs. His videos are funny. He’s an amusing guy. Go. Subscribe.

I got this magnetic nose stud thingy. I really like it, but it comes off really easily. Like any time I wipe my nose. And I’ve previously mentioned in this post that I have allergies, so ya know… that happens a lot. I’m thinking of getting a real piercing. Of course I need to wait until I find a job. If I had a bad reaction or got an infection it would make it awkward interviewing. I don’t know if many places would hire the girl with the swollen nostril.

Cool Retro Gaming

I saw something really interesting the other day, and I hadn’t had a chance to check it out until just a few minutes ago. The Internet Archive has emulators for several retro (really, really retro) video games, and they run in your browser. You can find them at https://archive.org/details/consolelivingroom. I tried some of the Atari 2600 ones, they seemed pretty cool. I know a lot of people weren’t born yet when these old games came out, but these laid the groundwork for everything we see now. It’s kind of cool to see how far we’ve come.
