Today's Manga: Getbackers 22, Red River 20, Yakitate JaPan 9, Inu-Yasha 32, Ninin ga Shinobuden 1, Yurara 3, Cheeky Angel 20 (one I never expected to see in a store around here), and the second Fullmetal Panic novel. There was another series that looked interesting, and I planned to get it if it fell within the buy 4, get 1 free, but I found exactly five manga that I wanted at Borders, so nothing doing. There were a few actual novels that looked good, though... Dave Barry's History of the Millennium So Far was 50% off, Saving Charlie was 20% off, and The Year of Living Biblically was full price, but worth every penny because I had a coupon that gave me 30% off, which wouldn't have worked on a sale item. Also, I'd have paid full price gladly, because it's a great book, and I haven't even read very much yet. I want to get this guy's "The Know-It-All", because both premises sound great. In his earlier book, he read the entire Encyclopedia Britannica, and in this one, he devotes an entire year to living according to the literal word of the Bible (eight months Old Testament, four months New Testament), subject to the interpretation of religious experts and his own common sense when necessary. So far, he's had to ask a female post office worker to put his change on the counter so he could pick it up without touching her hand, avoid wearing cotton-poly shirts, and sew tassels on his clothing. Much more to come once I'm beyond the opening pages.

Today's Anime: Death Note 2 with the Light figurine, Ah My Goddess Flights of Fancy 5, and Tsubasa 6. I also picked up an Ace Ventura set, for the obvious reason (I'll let you guess what that is if it doesn't seem as obvious as I claim), and Viewtiful Joe for the Gamecube from the bargain rack (at last). It's hard... maybe I should have picked the easy difficulty, but I'd probably feel ashamed if I had to do that. Nonetheless, I didn't manage to beat the first level, so I might have to swallow my pride on this one.

It's not that the rest of the day was BAD, but Curt got sick at the end of dinner, and it was probably around half an hour before he felt up to heading home, plus a few minutes of waiting for a legitimate transaction to complete so I could get some plastic bags for him from carry-out. Had I realized it would be THAT long, I might have ordered the dessert I wanted instead of skipping, but then the ice cream would have melted before I got it home. Still, I want that white chocolate cake... I may have to go back alone just for dessert one night. Or hunt down a white chocolate cake mix tomorrow. Hmmm...

Well, off for a bit of Mario Galaxy before bed, I imagine. I expect it's time to head to the last level and see where the story goes from there.

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!")
