smb814: (SG1 Stargate)
Halfway through March already, huh? Time just never slows down, does it?

Ah, well, life's been fine for me, I suppose. I've still been fighting off that darn stomach bug the past few weeks, but otherwise things are...okay. Nothing special, nothing awful. Since I'm procrastinating doing work right now (it's hard to get motivated when there are only, oh, five people on the entire floor because of spring break), I thought I'd take a stab at that Stargate meme that's been going around.

My responses here )

In other news, I'm currently addicted to Tales of the Abyss. I can't recommend it enough to other RPG video game fans. I think it might even manage to break into my top 5 games list by the time I'm done with it. Although I was royally annoyed last night to completely lose Feres Island because I didn't go directly there and instead did a few other sidequests first -- and by the time I was done, it was nowhere to be found again. Seriously. I searched the entire ocean for an hour and never found it. I should *not* have had that much difficulty finding a moving island! Fortunately, I had an old save before doing those other sidequests, but I still had to redo over an hour of the game, including getting Luke's and Guy's ultimate weapons again from the coliseum, just so I could find it again before it drifted off to who knows where. *sighs*

Also, upon discovering that my Nintendo DS could play Japanese games without any modifications, I decided to buy two games (Xenosaga I & II DS and Tales of the Tempest, both completely in Japanese) to use as incentive for me to keep studying the language. I've always really wanted to play those two games, and neither has a chance of ever being translated into English and coming to the US otherwise, so it'll give me something to work toward. I might even have to consider getting a Sony PSP one of these days since that, too, can play any game made for any country, and there are definitely some games on the PSP that I'm interested in playing. That is one of the reasons I'm learning Japanese, after all, to play some of those games.

In Frozen Flame news, since I haven't posted anything related to that in ages, I've surpassed my word count elimination goal. Yay! Even better, I'm still not done with it (I'm currently working on chapter 49 out of 56, although I still have to completely finish cleaning up chapters 43-48 yet, too), so I'm sure I'll be getting rid of far more than that before I'm done. Double yay! One of these days I *will* actually update about that here with statistics again.

And now I suppose I should really get some work done.
