It's 5:40AM here... and it's just starting to get light. The temperature is nice though, cool, not cold, should be a warm day. I'm drinking coffee and checking the internets for crap -- facebook, Twitter, my email, my website, Pixbit, etc. Yesterday was nice... my brother came over and swam in the pool with our German Shepherd, Lottie, whom we've had to re-teach how to get in and out of the pool. She either forgot or lost her nerve, but she's getting back into it now. She used to just go swimming all the time last summer, her first summer with us.
It was all about Etrian Odyssey IV yesterday, as I grinded and leveled up my characters, including a new one I had to start from scratch. That previous spot had been filled by a character I just wasn't happy with, so I replaced him with a warrior named "Kiki". Kiki is slowly leveling up and becoming powerful now. I really like Etrian Odyssey, it's really relaxing to work on the map and go through the battles, and then come back to town and sell loot and buy new stuff. It's just a nice, chill game, and you can pick it up and put it down very easily.
Well, I finally booted up Dragon Age: Inquisition again, digging around some desert for Grey Warden artifacts and killing foolz. It was nice. Graphics look great. There was even a dragon flying around, but I didn't see it, only heard it and heard my companions complain about it. I'm kind of losing interest in this game though. I wish I could play it on a handheld. I might start up Witcher 2 in preparation for 3's release in May, I'm feeling like playing a fantasy game, but DA:I might have lost me.
My little dog Taco is crying out in her sleep right now. She does this often, and I never know if I should wake her. Is she having a nightmare? Or is something good happening? Maybe she is dreaming about her previous owner, who died. I just don't know.
Hey everybody. Sorry I've been absent lately, I've been really busy. First of all, I had my family/easter stuff to deal with, which was a lot of fun, but also very tiring. Everyone has gone home now -- my sister and her family to Napa, and my little brother back to Maryland. I miss them.
Okay, more fan club packages are going out today. Not all of them though -- for the people I promised the first volume of Crumbling to, that will take a bit longer, as I'm in the process of ordering them. So the ones going out today will just include starwars and some other stuff, and then later ones will also include Crumbling. Thank you for your patience, people. I appreciate it.
Well today is day 2 of "The Program", and while I haven't done my yoga yet, I have been using the stationary bike for two days in a row. I also have managed not to scratch my arm, which I discussed last time. Overall, I'm doing good so far. In a week I'm going to weigh myself and see what happens.
So it was back to Final Fantasy X yesterday but I didn't play that much, just spent some time going through the sphere grid and leveling up my characters. I'm stuck in Ronso land, and the monsters are frustrating so I've died a couple times. But next time I'm gonna plow through it, I swear. I have been playing a bunch of Etrian Odyssey 4 as well... that's such a chill game.
