SO, Parcel. How about that LJ of yours? You gonna post?

Yep! My first post in weeks and weeks is about a game no one on my f-list cares about!

Super! )

I guess I am just nitpicking now. But final verdict: Fun world to explore. Fun game to play. Not quite as good as Origins.

The thing about a microblog like Plurk or Twitter is that they make posting whatever inane stupid nonsense that pops into my head into the kind of casual affair that Livejournal just can't match.

Which i guess is my roundabout way of saying I know I haven't been around all that much. And also that I'm sorry about it. I've been preoccupied by things.

One of those things is work, where I am totally getting trained on the desk. Friggin' FINALLY, I've been there, what, four years? Thank goodness I'm also getting a raise! That takes the sting out of the wait, if just a bit. I still dunno if I want another job though, but I might as well stick this one out.

And also school things are happening! Namely two lit classes (Shakespeare and American to the Civil War), one math class, and one aerobics class are happening. I am pretty much psyched for all of this except I haven't read anything more complex then a tag in an age and a half. It's difficult going from Homestuck to the Bard, and let's just leave it at that.

Game things are also in play, although really, it's more video then roleplaying nowadays (my current Thing about roleplaying is a whole 'nother entry in-and-of itself, so I'll leave it for now). Dragon Age in particular has me...ensnared, I think is the word. I've eaten this lore for breakfast, and flossed my teeth with it's characters. The fate of Ferelden is my plaything, I am the Warden, and I make the rules.

No, seriously. Every single important thing that's happened since the first fight has been my character's decision. I know, I know, Player has to do everything or it's not fun but jeeze, nothing ever gets decided around here without some wandering elven schmuck sticking his skinny nose in everything. I like it. I'm the arbiter of everything, speaking through a sheltered sad-sack of a homeless elf bum.

I think that must say a lot about me. All I know is that I really want someone to geek out about this series with, like I can not even express.

Err, I have nothing else to say right now, which is good, because I should really get to bed.

Oh ow ow ow the only thing I HATE about this time of year is that my skin takes on the texture of a brillow pad in a cactus patch with the same amount of moisture in it and feels about as nice. Some of you might now some good moisturizing body-washes? I would really appreciate some names named.

But some nice stuff happened! I got into [ profile] queenofheartsrp, found a CD case I lost about two years ago (With Forbidden Broadway Strikes Back AHHHH I thought that was gone forever!), and, got to procrastinate on my chemistry homework AND have enough cash to buy Sam and Max Season 3!

Thanksgiving was nice but uneventful, except there was a falling out between my aunts. Both aunts weren't there, thank god, but that meant hearing every detail, psychoanalyzing every detail, and then deciding what to do or not do about every detail. Not so interesting for me, particularly because one aunt can't be convinced that the other wouldn't hate her if not for the fact they're related. Oh well. So it goes.

Sob, I can't even believe that my week break is almost over where did the time even go? THIS IS NOT FAIR.

So, I got Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Sky at a discount from the Blockbuster that was going out of business near my house. I was kind of all set to have a fun new game...and then I realized it was a port of the last two, which I had totally forgotten I'd played.

It''s a thing I do now and again. I play through a game for a while and then trade it in and then almost immediately forget about ever owning it, only to purchase it again much later and remember. I did it with Sly Cooper, and I did it with Wario Land Shake It!, and now I am doing with PMD.

The game is pretty ridiculously easy right now, considering I've almost leveled up to 30 on myself and my partner (Eevee and Riolu respectively). I haven't taken on Amp Plains yet but the game can just be patient. I've got a Dratini in my party to raise up and 360 points to go before I reach Silver Rank.

In other, rather video game related news, my parents bought a 42 inch flat screen HD TV. It's a splendorous object, wonderful for playing video games on. I might pull out my copy of Metroid just so I'll have something big and epic to play on it.

See, I make jokes at my own expense all the time, but when I say that I am late for every single bandwagon that comes along that is in no way a joke I really am late for everything

What are we all into now? Left 4 Dead? Maybe that'll happen! Maybe!

Speaking of things I am late for...NaNo has not gone at all well. I'm only about 550 words into it and I haven't even looked at the site because what is it going to do? Yell at me? Man, I've got other shit to do. I think I'll get all my homework done tonight so I can have the day and a half of my weekend not taken up by work to just be creative.

I'm not even looking at the site until I get it done. I hate it when websites tell me I'm a failure when screw you website YOU DON'T KNOW ME

Woah LJs source code just popped up. Why? Do I have a button for that? Which one is it?

Er...Also I had a math test. I'm not sure how I did because I always think I failed tests. I'm going to take my mind off it by doing my poetry homework. Yeah man, poetry. Sweet.

Definitive proof that I am dull )

Nothing much else to say. Started playing Jet Grind Radio last night and I alllllmost don't completely suck at it. Am seriously embarrassed about a schedule mix-up at school. Thinking of doing a Nuzlocke run in Pearl (because I don't have enough to do apparently) and mostly just been living.

Ffft, I have been really down lately. I don't even know what it is, other then a low mood. I'm not really prone to depression, and I doubt it's that serious anyway. I just...can't make myself do anything but play Harvest Moon until I can't see straight. Oh, silver watering can, you were so worth the headache. Copper axe, not so much.

OH WELL, perhaps I'll pick up when school starts again next week. Then I'll feel like I'm doing something. And I have a Creative Writing class which will be a lot of fun. And I have Thursady's Rifftrax Live to look forward to.

So...pretty much I'm down for no real reason. Pffft. Good.

...Shit, I forgot everything else I was going to talk about. Oh well, I haven't done much lately but Harvest Moon anyhow.

On the plus side, I like LJs new tag system. Look at all those tags I'd forgotten about until I brought up the full list!

Hey, is anyone still playing Animal Crossing: City Folk? Or is at least willing to hop on it long enough to give me some non-cherry based fruit?

...Not right now, because I have to get prepared for work and I am sleepy as all hell today anyway.

And also I doubt that anyone still does, which is why I'm also not putting up my friend code right as of yet.

K.K. Slider at SBG...I have been batting this idea around for a while, but I cannot seem to come to any real decision.

My whole entire body rhythm is messed, and I can see that it won't get regular again for at least another month. I've been staying up too late and skipping too many meals.

The up-too-late is just a computer addiction, but meal skipping is mostly because my mom and sister are on this crash-corse food-will-kill-you-so-for-god-sakes-don't-eat-anything diet, and so there's basically nothing in the house anymore. Well, there's vegatables, but there isn't too much variety (there is spinach and spinach). Anything I want I have to go out and get myself, and I don't want to have to spend the money and hide it from them to eat.

Groan...Oh well, I might just end up going to Spoons (local soup and salad place) a lot more then I usually do. It'll support mom and sis by eating healthily and not have to starve.

Also, sadly, my DS is broken. The entire top screen has gone completely white. I looked it up on the internet and it's probably that the ribbon that connects it is loose. Perfect. That means I'll have to send the damn thing in.

That Kirby trailer.

I could watch it forever.

Most teeth rottening-ly precious game of the year award.

I can't wait for the American box-art where a tiny Kirby made of yarn glares menacingly at the player.

Because it will be the most incongruous thing ever and I will completely adore it.

There was so much cool stuff out but I'm fixated.

Also, I cannot find anything about a cat game did that really happen. Because it's a game about creatures that don't come when you call and don't do any tricks. F-fun.

Where did my ability to concentrate on things go? It should not be gone. As is my faith in my own abilities, particularly my writing skills. That went somewhere too.

Maybe I'll find them when I clean up around here. And I don't even mean that facetiously. Getting my space less busy might help me a lot.

I ended up with an extra 200 bucks over the weekend, so I got myself Mario Galaxy 2 and Monster Hunter Tri. I love the shit out of both of them, though for different reasons. Monster Hunter came with 500 Wii points so, added to what I already had, I was able to get Bit Trip Runner and Startropics. Which I also like. Even if they both make me pull my hair out. mom wants to go up gambling again. I take back what I said about not having a gambling problem. I'm just carrying on a family tradition, I guess. Maybe I'll become an alcoholic too, and carry on the OTHER family tradition.

I found my bag of DS games! It had been missing since last summer and I found it, packed away with my summer clothes! Oh boy! I bought so many of these games over because I thought it was gone forever! I want to punch myself in the face!

At least I can get my Pearl Pokemon out of the damn ranch now.

And! And I found my Forbidden Broadway CDs! Musicals and song parodies! Two great tastes, and I love that crap like you don't even know. It always makes me want to make my own song parodies, but I'm not that funny and I never can think of anything.

My grandparents came over this week, but all they ever want to do is watch war movies on our cables. I don't blame them, because they're trying to sell their house and it's been a hard sell so far. (And I don't even know why, I'd buy it in a heartbeat if I had the money. It's such a nice house.)

I meant to ask my grandpa about his marine experience because I'd never heard those stories before, but I didn't think of it until it was too late. Poo. I'll ask when we go out this summer.

So...yeah, that's what I've been doing for the last whenever.

So, my mom bought me a Dreamcast.

It was 9 bucks at Goodwill, it has no games, or audio/video cord, it's filthy, and came with a Playstation controller. With no Duel-Shock.

AND I LOVE IT SO MUCH I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED ONE FOREVER AND EVER AND AHHHHH It's sitting on my X-Box, right next to my Gamecube.

Putting this layout on trial. I like how it looks, but I'm not sure how functional it is quite yet.

So, I pretty much spent all of today playing video games and watching TV. I watched Soultaker from my new MST3K box set (yay!), finally broke down and watched Hetalia (eeeehhh…), rented Marble Madness (awwww!), played some more WarioWare DIY (hmmm), tried out The Path (bleh), got to the final boss in Beyond Good and Evil (auuuuuugh), and plan to play some Pokemon before bed (finally).

I haven't looked at my grades because I want to ride high for at least the rest of the week. I'm…pretty sure I did poorly in Biology, but I'm not sure if it was "failing" poorly. And I have actually NO idea how my Tech Writing went. At least I got an A in Western Civ.

Next week is my sister's graduation from high school. The ceremony is at nine at night, apparently in a bid to find the most insane time to hold a graduation ceremony. I'm not sure if she's planning a party or not but I do know that she's taking some friends up to Estes park for a two-day camping trip. So that should be fun for her, and make the house quiet for me.

I'm going to spend some effort at work on Saturday looking for something new to read in the fiction area. Anybody read anything good lately?

So, I have worked an hour on my Tech Writing final.

My reward to myself for this was to finally download and play Yumi Nikki for a bit.

I am not...This game is hitting EVERY SINGLE ONE of my video game pet peeves. And it is doing it by design. I should hate it with every fiber of my being.

And yet I still want to keep playing. Because it is hitting my "I love creepy shit" button in the best ways.

...And I've forgotten where I've been and where I wanted to go. SEE THIS IS WHAT I HATE. I WILL NEVER LEARN WHERE I AM AND WHERE I AM GOING AT ANY TIME EVER.

Augh, so today I am sick with a sour stomach but I didn't get sick until after the bio lab which really just confuses the hell out of me unless I...swallowed some ethanol. Or something. Which I'm pretty sure didn't happen. Because I do not eat the things used in bio lab.

Anyway, we were isolating onion DNA and the instructor let us take it home. So now there is a vial of onion DNA on my Carefully Collected Shelf of Useless Junk. So that's fun.

Also, my professor has given me hope for the future: the bio final? NOT COMPREHENSIVE. Oh MAN that's music to my ears.

Oh! Tonight I get to go see Jesus Christ Superstar with the ORIGINAL TOURING CAST. One of my dad's friends is a huge nutter for that play, and he told dad about it who told me. So I get to go tonight, which will make up for the rest of today. I hope.

As far as RP goes: I'm going to app Nanny Ogg from Discworld at Mayfield, and Curly Brace from Cave Story at Zenithia. Then I will have six characters total and that will be all the apping I'll do for a while. ...Um, probably.

Now, Video games! I bought the Wii version of Cave Story, Prototype for Xbox 360, and WarioWare DIY. Cave Story is Cave Story and it is awesome, Prototype, but not really all that engaging just yet, and WarioWare DIY has given me the oddest complaint I've ever had with a video game but here it is:

Jimmy T has no butt.

Seriously, they make him an aerobics instructor, put him in a leotard, and don't give him any definition in his butt? He's a dancer! His hindquaters shouldn't be a line where his legs end! I know he's not muscled like Fabio, but he should have some tone down there!

...And then I realized that I was actually angry about Jimmy T's behind, and that I was picking apart why he should have visable buttcheeks. And then I cried.

College students are just like elementary school students.

We got a project for Western Civ on Tuesday to diagram a medieval peasant village and my group saw the other groups drawing theirs with markers and we said "DUUUUUDE, WE'VE GOT LINCOLN LOGS AND MODELING CLAY AND LEGOS LETS MAKE OURS THE BESTEST EVER AND MAKE IT 3D AND DUUUUUUDE!"

So, flash forward to today, when I have made a model of a peasant's hut out of femo clay, felt, a tiny bottle, and a little duck purchased at Hobby Lobby, and wondering how the hell I'm going to transport it from here to there without it smashing up like so much dry kindling, and trying to remember what the hell I was supposed to do my quarter of the written part on which I forgot because I was so into making the model.

Then I will write up my Bio homework, play some Pokemon, take my Tech Writing quiz, tag roleplay stuff, and try out Fragile Dreams, which I bought yesterday.

My life is of two worlds: The brainy world and the world where I play with clay and raise Pokemon. It is weird to have them overlap like this.

This. Game. Is drivng. Me. CRAZY.

So, I've mentioned this before, but I've been playing Eversion. And then I beat it but come to find out that the last level'd been changed in a different version.

It's a presision platforming nightmare. If you do not do one section exactly perfectly then you either have to kill yourself and start the section over or restart the entire level so you can fight your way back to do the section over. It's about the most frustrating section in any game I've ever played and you have to do it twice.

Keep in mind, I have never played I Wanna Be the Guy before.

Ah, today would be the perfect day if I didn't have work. I might just...pop in some MST3K for a while.

I think this meme has gone around before, but what the hey
