Over a 2 months…. That’s a very long time since my last blog entry. Both the blog server and the client I use to write my blogs have been updated in this time, and not a single message from me. This should be the first indication on how stressful my life has become as of late. It is difficult to understand how things can both be better then ever and worse then ever at the same time, but I will try to explain.
Well I’m slowly recovering from the flu. Last night after being caught in traffic for an excessive amount of time on I-20, I stopped at the Parks mall before heading home for the night. While there I paid up and picked up my previously reserved copy of Final Fantasy X-2 for PS2. I then went downstairs and found my way to a cart that I had seen previously that sells personalized Veggitales CDs and picked one up in which the Veggitales will sing to my nephew Zach, figuring that will be a good christmas present for him. The lady at the card was nice enough to let me listen to it before purchasing it, and I chuckled as I heard “If Zach likes to talk with Tomatoes, if a Squash can make you smile, if Zach likes to waltz with potatoes, up and down the produce aisle…”. It was very funny and I’m sure my nephew will love it.
I then got a cheesesteak sandwhich before driving home to try my long anticipated video game. I had seen japanese videos of the opening scene but the english version was slightly different. It was indeed a pop concert, but what struck me was how very Charlie’s Angels the opening sequence was. When each of the 3 female lead characters were introduced we are taken to a screen showing just that character on a colorful background with their name, then when all 3 characters were together they strike attack poses and all 3 of them go over the colored background with Y R P on the bottom. The only thing missing was the Charlie’s Angels theme song, although the music at that point in the game was of a similar style. Fortunately from that point on the only symbalance to CA was the fact that the 3 main characters are female and they kick some butt.
I must say however if Brother and Yuna end up together by the end of the game I’m going to be pretty ticked! Brother has a very obvious crush on Yuna which he shows by excessive concern for her safety and a crazy desire to see her dance.
It has been a very long week.
I was running the A/V system for the annual district conference of the Southwestern District of the C&MA, long days but a lot of fun overall.
Then Friday I took a quick trip out to TN to meet with D, a most enjoyable if sadly short encounter, flew there Friday afternoon, met her in the evening, and flew home Saturday morning.
