Moa: The King of Destruction

(no subject)

More storms. Yay.

Today's Bridge: Collapse )

Man, that storm gets loud. It even drowns out the TV sometimes, just from the rain hitting the windows.

The correlation stuff works, but because I've only just gotten it working, I still have a lot of work to do on the part that comes after it. That's going to continue into next week, but I think it's mostly small problems now, and a bit of redesign now that I've got a better grasp of the system than I did when I first designed it.

Today's Skies: I finished Yafutoma and hunted down a few more Discoveries. I made it to Ryu-kan's place, but apparently, I'm going to need to go beat a particular Bounty before he'll talk to me. And it's way on the far side of the world, or right nearby on the far side of the one barrier I can't cross yet. And as we say about every freaking RPG with a map that wraps around... if west connects to east and north connects to south, that is NOT a sphere! That's a TORUS! Get it right! If it's a sphere, then north is north no matter how you get there, and once you're at the North Pole, the only direction you can go is south, still from the north edge of the map. Ditto south. This is basic topology.

OK, in deference to the wrath of the storm, I'm shutting down and getting to bed. It's also midnight. That's pretty late. Darn Monk and Psyche for being so cool and House for being on after them.

Today's Manga: Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne 4. Out of all the series I'm collecting, that was all they had a new book of. At least they had one. So I picked up three books of 11th Cat and the fourth Avatar DVD. Then I went to Best Buy and bought Pikmin 2. Then I picked up my mail from the old apartment, including a coupon for 12% off at Best Buy. Oops. I also painted over that wall patch while I was there, and while the putty wasn't enough to even things out before I put the paint on, it looked okay in the very dim lighting. Hard to spot unless you're looking for it.

Today's Skies: I'm exploring the upper and lower skies, finding Discoveries and recruiting the last of my crew members. I think I found a brand-new Discovery today that I've never seen before. Tomorrow, I"ll probably load up my game at the end and see about picking up some of the new secrets I've found. And then attempting to tear myself away from the game long enough to give Pikmin 2 a run. I should probably go buy the original Pikmin and try that first, just to get used to it in the simpler form. That remains to be seen. I've still got Kingdom Hearts 2 to finish, and lots of other games at various stages of completion. And maybe a new writing project that I'll actually be able to motivate myself to do.

I read Hana Yori Dango book 11 in one sitting. I don't know whether maybe this is farther than the anime went, or there was a divergence, but I don't remember this story arc being in the anime. Lots of catching up on old series these days... I'm cycling Land of the Blindfolded, Rurouni Kenshin, Hana Yori Dango, D.N.Angel, and Chrono Crusade through my queue as quickly as I can lately, with a few other books thrown in for variety. My queue has gotten pretty tall this month.
