Actually, that title should have been for that butterfly puzzle. That one was a real terror. I’ll once again point out it was a level 1 puzzle, and these two puzzles, levels 2 and 3, were far easier. Perhaps not easier to locate where all the pieces went, but definitely easier to actually put together, so I guess level is based on location, location, location, and not getting the dang thing together, getting the dang thing together, getting the dang thing together.

Today is Christmas, or as they say in my brain, Clichemas. What is Clichemas, you ask? The most cliché day of the whole year! But I’ll tell you about that later. Much later. For now, let’s take a quick look at the results of this day.
Our tree fell over. Well, our house fell over. Well, actually, I just took the picture sideways and don’t feel like righting it. I took these pictures with the 3DS, so they’re all kind of horrible quality. But that’s what Clichemas is all about! Or… so I assume. I haven’t worked out all the details yet.
So what did I get on this day? I got a mug full of antidote.
In more activity-related news, I got games and books. Books and games!
And you may have noticed something in the corner of that picture. I got a Homestuck.
Anyway, shirts. I got another shirt about being lazy. It’s like a theme with me?
And finally, more Dinosaur Comics and Homestuck.
The one on the left is a Hero of Time shirt… because I’m a Hero of Time. Probably?? But they were actually too small so my brother’s going to send ’em back to get bigger sizes. But, hey, you know what they say…
And, of course, today we went off to meet with relatives and stuff. This. This is what Clichemas is truly all about: going out to meet with family whom you have no idea who they are.
Seriously. I do not actually know who this guy was. My only guess is an uncle-in-law.
Hmm. Putting his picture on the internet without his permission or knowledge may not be the best idea.
But best ideas are not what Clichemas is all about.
Now if you excuse me, I think I just heard the Christmas tree fall down in the other room.

Okay so this post isn’t NECESSARILY about Ryan North, but today’s Dinosaur Comic[s] reminded me of it, since it’s fundamentally the same idea; however, as Ryam Mirth had dinosaurs talking about it, he used it better/at all.
However again, after I remembered what I had come up with at length, I realized my idea involved robots.
If you believe human brains can be programmed with chemicals then what’s the difference, right??
Anyway, it basically involved a single consciousness without form being bored and creating Earth and all its people over the timeline of humanity and having them all act on a set path (like robots!), and then entering the body of these people across history and living out their lives. At some point, however, this consciousness forgot itself, so when it was transferred to other bodies through time and space it forgot the memories from the previous life. Things change when one of the created people gain a separate sentience, though.
So it’s BASICALLY like what Utahraptor said in panel 5, with everyone reincarnated actually being the same person over time. It’s not the same, of course, but fundamentally it’s reincarnation! I mean, nobody thinks reincarnation involves your rotting flesh changing form into an acorn that grows into a tree; it’s your mind that does so! Or what have you. That’s not the point. The real point is I remembered it due to Ryan North, not that I’m just making the connection so I look cooler. I already looked cool enough during my last reincarnation when I was Ryan North. (Wait, that was when I was reading To Be or Not To Be… uh…)
Anyway, I tried writing a short story with this idea, but it didn’t turn out too interesting so I stopped. I might come back to it at some point, though. Who’s to know? Presumably a reincarnation that lived in the future.
Maybe I’ll make the characters dinosaurs. That might help make it more interesting.
