Definitely a week's worth of manga

Today's Manga: Hunter x Hunter 21, Fairy Tail 3, Black Cat 15, XXX-Holic 12, Gun Blaze West 2, Fruits Basket 20, Claymore 12, S.A. 5, Strawberry 100% 5, Prince of Tennis 26, Skip Beat 13, Reborn 8, Gin Tama 7, Love*Com 7, and La Corda D'Oro 8. I saw the third Fullmetal Panic novel at Barnes & Noble, but didn't feel like getting in line just to buy that. Ditto the third XXX-Holic DVD at Best Buy... they had plenty of copies of Death Note 5, but none of the limited edition ones with the Misa figurine. No way I'm missing that!

Today's Gaming: It took more tries to beat the barbarian than I'd have liked, but it went pretty quickly, and I moved on. I wanted to beat Euryale in the same session, but my ankle was hurting and I wanted to rest it in a position that would have made the game difficult, so I stopped for a while. Once it felt better, I went back to it, beat her in a few tries, and got all the way to Perseus. I beat him in two tries, then made it to the lowland crossing, which is where I stopped for the day. It's not the haphazard timing of the jumps that worries me, but the close-quarters fighting that follows. I've got the blades to level 4 now, but haven't built up anything else at all. I forgot that the hammer doesn't gain the Soul Summon ability until level 2, and I remember using the level 2 spear pretty heavily in the upcoming fight - the spirit mines were a big help. Well, it'll be time to see whether I can find a more blade-based solution next time.

Today's Chores: Due to the ankle pain, I didn't do much today. I got the car serviced, took out the trash, booked the Weird Al tickets (reserved seating... twice the price, but might be better located... unless I'm behind the speaker again), and gave half of my room a shower of half a Subway sub. That last one wasn't planned, and certainly wasn't a chore, but it added a few to the lineup.

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!")
