“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.” - Dr. Seuss

Breaking radio silence

Sorry for the long drought between posts. I've been...reading? ^^; And avoiding responsibilities. My laptop's been out for repairs since May. ...And I've been playing FFXII. (Aha! The truth comes out!). Fun game, far too long. I'm at something crazy like 80 hours and ...


No, I haven't started playing. I watched the cutscenes. SPOILERS!!

I’m a gamer, sort-of.

I'm in Massachussettes! In 's dorm room, specifically. She brought me to her roleplaying club's annual convention, where I learned how to make character sheets and roll dice and also that I... really like pen-and-paper roleplaying. (SHOCK! You're all surprised, I can tell. -_-; the real ...

Olympics, etc.

I am so totally out of the Olympic loop - though I heard there's an outdoor screen at the Castle Museum gardens in York that's doing public screenings of Olympic events, so I might go to that. I missed the torch when it passed through a few weeks ago. ...

6-years-too-late review of disposable teen comedy, John Tucker Must Die

Saw this with M. It's really not too bad... if you ignore the ending, aha. Especially the casting for John Tucker is good: at first you are like, what do any of these girls see in this guy? But by the end you are like, hmm, ...
