The burning... the burning...

It was a pretty boring day, I suppose. I finished the Death Note DVD, solved a few puzzles in Myst 4 (and now I'm even more completely baffled, because I have no idea where the solutions fit into the big picture... I found a new world that seems to be where everything leads, and I don't know if I got what I needed to from the world I was in, nor have I even really explored the other world yet), and finally started that spamfic. It's going to take a while. But my eyes have been burning, possibly due to the incredible heat output of the desktop. I got a wireless mouse for it today, as part of a movement to set up a tray far enough from the computer that I can sit normally while using it, rather than on the floor a few feet away from the TV. However, either the mouse itself or the batteries that came with it are defective. I plugged it in for the recommended 8 hours, and it still wouldn't turn on. I'm charging the batteries in my own recharger now, hoping that maybe the mouse just wouldn't charge them unless it was turned on, and couldn't turn on with completely dead batteries. I almost hope it doesn't work - then I can return it and get a wireless keyboard and mouse set. Apparently, wireless keyboards aren't sold on their own. Mice are, but keyboards aren't. That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. And that includes all the variations on the chicken crossing the road joke. My right eye stopped hurting with one eyedrop, but the left one resisted the maximum dose. It feels a bit better now, but I don't entirely trust it. So while I've wanted to play some video games all week, and finally have the motivation now that my momentum in Myst 4 is fading, I think I may skip and try to get to bed a bit early. (As if.)

I feel like I underate tonight... half a pizza, but I started feeling a bit nauseous and stopped there. I could probably eat a bit more, but I'll save it for dinners this week. Lunches should be interesting... I've decided to try yet another one of my crazy combinations. Roast beef and Swiss with pickle slices. Wish me luck... lunch tomorrow may leave me feeling quite hungry and with most of an inedible sandwich.

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!")
