This weekend's manga: The last book of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure part 2, Magi 19, Dimension W 3, Citrus 5, How To Raise a Boring Girlfriend 3, My Hero Academia 5, Kagerou Daze 6, Fairy Tail 55, Horimiya 4, Nisekoi 17, One-Punch Man 8, Monster Musume 9, Magical Girl Apocalypse 8, Kuroneko Oreimo 6 (the last one), Akuma no Riddle 4, Assassination Classroom 11, D-Frag 9, My Monster Secret 3, Not Lives 3, UQ Holder 8, Tokyo ESP 6, Skip Beat 37, Real Account 3, Monthly Girls' Nozaki-Kun 4, Akame ga Kill 7, Puella Magi Tart Magica 3, Anne Happy 2, The Devil is a Part-Timer 6, Nurse Hitomi's Monster Infirmary 4, and School-Live 4. I held back a bit this month, as you can probably tell, since I still don't have the bookcase space for this many new books. I also bought the next two books of Rising of the Shield Hero, the new Harry Potter script, the next Land of Stories book, and a book of humor/information about Irish culture that seems like it could have been useful a few years ago, but might still apply somehow.

Obviously, I spent the long weekend visiting Mom. We spent the first day letting her try out a couple of PS3 games that she'd been interested in at Disc Replay - she'd bought the Tomb Raider remake, but they gave her the wrong disc and refused to exchange it when she found out, so she got a new copy at Gamestop that actually had the correct game in it. She seemed to be getting along in Kingdom Hearts, but as soon as she found out that Donald has voiced lines, she quit and refused to play any more. That's probably for the best. We watched a couple of Doctor Who stories and collected a bunch of Gold Skulltulas in Hyrule Warriors, and spent Sunday afternoon at the museum. Probably the best part of that trip was the exhibit of Jacco Olivier's liquid paint animations - he does animation, but instead of using traditional drawing methods or computer graphics, he paints on a canvas, takes digital pictures, and uses those to make animation frames on multiple layers. It's pretty amazing. We also went to the new farmer's market near her house to see how it was - the produce wasn't quite as varied as I was hoping, but it had a great selection of most things. We made wild boar burgers with traditional burger fixings as well as Thai peanut sauce - it was good, but very messy to make and probably not very good for me to eat. I don't know whether it was the fat in the meat or the whole grain buns, or both, but my glucose was up quite a bit the next morning. We also had a giant bowl of fruit salad - I discovered that I don't much like papaya, and I don't think it likes me either. But otherwise, it was a great bowl of fruit. I came home a bit early, hoping to make it out to buy a new bookcase and perhaps a new headset for LP recording, but I had a lot of cleaning to do and never made it out for more than the usual grocery shopping. I also wanted to update my own copy of Hyrule Warriors so I could try out the new character and weapon - nothing particularly special at this point, I think, but they seem like they'll be fun in Legends. That will have to wait, though. I need to get to bed a bit earlier than usual because it's back to work in the morning and I've been having trouble waking up ever since I set my alarm earlier. I might need to make it earlier still.

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
