“The rumors of my life have not been greatly exaggerated.”

A week without internet is seriously killer. At least I had my Wii to play with. Har har, only had to camp outside in freezing weather with a camp chair and some blankets for 12 hours. Zelda dies. Oops .

At least its a quick, though ungracious death. I was just kind of sitting there thinking, “well, damn.” She’ll probably come back to life one way or another by the end of the game, but I don’t want to spoil everything.

Wii Sports is awesome, Red Steel is great. My biggest gripe about Red Steel is that the weapons are completely unbalanced. The pistol is, by far, the most powerful weapon. Seriously. My brother and I did some tests in the multiplayer mode, and the pistol does far more damage per unit of time than all the other weapons. I think this is due to weapon ‘accuracy’ being added in – the bullets don’t go exactly where you’re pointing….. unless you use a pistol.

I was going to rant about how gdnet suxxors teh big !!111!500.13 these days but I figure, well, best not to talk about it especially since its to be expected from such hackish software but I guess I can’t complain. I doubt I could write anything to best it, so hooray good job for getting it this far. *watches Paypal send more money*

Haven’t gotten the job as sysadmin at uni yet because they don’t have funding for it until next year (ie, 2 months) when a couple positions open up. Meanwhile, I think I’ll learn me some PHP, something that I’ve been meaning to do for a while, and a job skill they asked if I had in the impromptu interview I managed to snag after saying I’d work for free. Long story.

Going to go continue reading Sword of Truth now, or play with my Wii some more… though its a little chafed from earlier today.

Also, hi Steve.

Okay, so I went into GameStop this morning when it opened, and was like “whuz up babe, gimme ff3 plox” and she was like “whut we dun hav ff3 it dun arrive until noon or one lolz” and I was like “shiizzzzz” so I bought a different game.

Then I came back around 2, after they had unpacked today’s shipment and asked if FF3 had come in. The lady was like “Whoops, sorry, today may be the release day but it’s apparently coming in tommorrow”. I was like “…” but then she offered to let me pre-purchase a copy (because they only had 4 coming that hadn’t already been reserved) so that made me happy.

Also, how the hell do they get semi-hot chicks to work at GameStop? Seriously.

Here’s the game I bought – its fucking awesome -

(Trauma Center: Under the Knife)

blaaarrrgggg I have a test on wednesday that I’m completely unprepared for, and I discovered that I’m not going to be here for the 17-19th, which is UGHHHH so I’ll just have to try my best to get a Wii at home. The Target (PLACE OF INFAMY) has 51 units to sell… hopefully I’ll be able to get one.

Fucking hell.

Still need to draw some crenelations or something. And to look up how to spell ‘crenelations’.
