The usual Terre Haute day itinerary went as usual, except that I'd forgotten to make my egg salad the night before, so that's going on right now. I also broke tradition by bringing both of the remaining Kino's Journey DVDs, so we naturally watched the rest of the series with little pause. The ending wasn't anything that hadn't been done before in the series, but it did leave a few questions, as did most of the episodes. Fanfiction for that series would be cool, but very difficult to come up with. I'm brainstorming, just because I expect a Kino fanfic would be out of left field and fill a nifty dearth. And it'll catch everybody by surprise, because there aren't many people who read this stuff to know that I'm doing it. We also watched the Little Snow Fairy Sugar special... as expected, it's two more episodes of Little Snow Fairy Sugar. I played a bit of Skies of Arcadia, and he showed off his Dance Dance Revolution moves. Apparently, the social aspects of that scourge of humanity have infiltrated Rose as well. I didn't indulge, and still don't plan to... I embarrass myself enough just breathing in and out. I don't need the limb-flailing trip hazard of an arrow-mongering death game to help me along. Besides, what happens if *shudders* I turn out to ENJOY it? My life would officially be over. Don't stop to wonder why that is... remember my devout Cynicism and let me remind you as well that most Star Wars fans are now complaining over the excessive re-releases of the DVDs... and that's not HALF of the number of versions DDR has put out that have different songs and change arrow placements and stuff. I know there's more to it than that, but even Final Fantasy has a new storyline for each game. Well... let's shove Tactics aside, shall we? Whoops... didn't realize the case was that fragile.

Today's purchases: I started at Waldenbooks and bought Dark Tower 7 and Going Postal as well as Fruits Basket 5, A.I. Love You 5, Et Cetera 2, Nadesico 4, Slayers SEDS 6 (where are 4 and 5? Huh?), Chrono Crusade 2, Rave Master 11, and Pretear 3. No Rurouni Kenshin 7, which was a shame, but they had it at Suncoast, where I planned to use my triple points coupon to get Chrono Crusade anime 1 with the box... but no joy. And no box. But I did end up getting the manga as well as the third Animated Mr. Bean set on my second visit. I'll look at Sam Goody when I go to pick up the new Tenchi GXP on Tuesday, and if they don't have it there, Anime Nation gets my business again. I have no shame in it. And I tell Suncoast so. I don't like being jerked around and not getting what I want. They also didn't have any good DVD storage units. I'll have to try Target soon... I'm out of DVD space and I ran out of manga space a long time ago.

Still waiting on downloads that I started this morning... and sometime last night. Yay BitTorrent.

Still looking into Sugoicon, but I don't doubt that I'm going to go and that Curt's going to come with me again this year. Hopefully, the fanfic panel works out this time. I enjoy fielding questions, particularly the crazy ones. Anyone who can reach Cincinnatti, please look into it and consider coming to say hello... I was a bit disappointed that I didn't get to meet many new people (formally) at AWA.

Still waiting for two ADC prereads, but if I get one, I'll probably post the chapter and make revisions based on the other when I get it. It's been too long. Not as though I'll make much progress in chapter 11... that whole thing is a colossal mess that I'm better off not even trying to salvage. I might combine what I can save from chapters 11 and 12 into one, depending. A lot happened... just in the stupidest, most boring way possible (for someone with my inherent level of skill, even back then).

I need to go mash eggs now.
