Of Sunburns and Plans for ACEN 08

Okay, my face right now is feeling like it's on fire. Have I ever mentioned how much I fucking hate sunburns? Let me paint a picture of myself for you now: I am a really pale geek. I avoid going outside during daylight hours for any extended period of time if I can help it.

I push carts for a job. This means I'm outside for 7-8 hours a day.

It's days like this that I hate my job. But enough bitching.

Anywhos, I am going to Anime Central this year, much like I do every year. As things are going, I will be there for Saturday and Sunday.

In other news, my dad picked up Assassin's Creed for PC recently, so I've been playing that and enjoying it. Like the last time I played it (back when it came out for 360/PS3), I've had the urged to play an assassin character in D&D again. I'll likely get over that sometime after I finish the game...

And for the record, I really really hate sunburns...

On a random side note, I have just discovered that I have had this blog for about a year now. Go me.

Of Boozed Filled Nights

Dear Internet,

I have experienced something I never wanted to deal with tonight - helping a drunk person while they're sick. As someone who doesn't drink, I do not fear the after effects of booze, such as the vomiting or the horrible depressing crash that happens later. However, watching your girlfriend go through that stuff is not fun. On the other side, it does bring out some of the funnier parts of people...

I think I will leave it at that. I'm going to head to bed now, for I do no feel too good and I am tired. Good night Internet.

Holy Crap, it's a POST!

Sigh... Why do I lose track of time and forget my blog so often? I mean, I enjoy writing about random crap all the time, so why do I forget to update my blog so easily? Is it really that difficult to come to blogger and log in and start typing?

Okay, random ranting of that sort done.

I have returned to City of Heroes, only to find out that there's a bug that's keeping me from logging into my characters unless I'm in safe mode (and I assure you, I refuse to play in safe mode). Thankfully, the newest patch on test has fixed the problem, but I have to wait for them to take it to live.

In other news, I have begun a new campaign, since my last one died when I lost interest. This new one is heavily inspired by the awesomeness that is Castlevania. One big castle, one nasty vampire lord, and a horde of monsters to slay on the way there. It was amazing - I had generated enough interest that I was pumped to run the game. And I've barely had to do anything to get my party together. If that's not an accomplishment, I don't know what is.

I've been keeping up with a number of Anime these days, although only two seem to keep my attention enough to continue downloading the subs. Shakugan no Shana season 2 and Clannad. Shana has finally kicked into high gear after wasting a good 10 episodes of minimal character development. Clannad has only annoyed me a little bit: Fuko's arc was too long for my liking and while I understand they're following the 'main' story, I wish they had chosen a different one, like Tomoyo's story. Kyou's would've been fine too.

Well, I think that's a decent update. Better than some of my older ones.
