Being a packrat has its advantages

Today's Manga: Skip Beat 14, Mamotte Shugogetten 2, Mamotte Lollipop 7 (the only one I found at B&N... which I only bought there because I spotted the later two Dexter books in a nearby display), Black Cat 16, Mixed Vegetables 1, Princess Resurrection 4, Gin Tama 8, Prince of Tennis 27, Dr. Slump 16 (I thought it would be the last one, but it's not), S.A. 6, O-Parts Hunter 11, Love*Com 8, and Gentlemen's Alliance Cross 7. Quite a haul, and my diminishing queue has jumped from 2 books (one of which was double-thick) to 13.

Today's Anime: The first (all?) three DVD sets of Tweeny Witches... I didn't realize they were doubles, which makes it even weirder that each one was $15.

Today's Games: Maximo for the PS2, because it was three bucks, and Lego Star Wars 2 for the 360, because there was a coupon. I figured I'd give the Lego games a try and see what all the fuss is about. However, my gaming today was mainly Neopets: The Darkest Fairie. I know, but I still think it's a pretty good game. I'm just biased against Neopets for no real reason. I also downloaded the long-awaited AGDI remake of Quest for Glory 2, but haven't played it yet. I wanted to grab my old saves from the first game, which I still have on a floppy disk, so I dug that up from the depths of my closet (in the empty box from a Cardcaptor Sakura collectible, where I put all my old floppies for safe keeping), put it in my old laptop, which can connect to the network when I need it to, and copied the files to my regular laptop. Curt offered me a USB floppy drive, but the laptop works as a clunky substitute. I look forward to some great gaming fun with updated Easter eggs (there's a rather rare Rickroll in there) in the days to come. I'm also browsing what appears to be an official set of FAQs and hints written by Corey Cole for all of the QFG games. Awesome. (On closer inspection, they're fan-made, but include quotes from the developers here and there. Still a neat find.) Maybe the games will run on this computer, in DOSBox or standalone. I might be able to find the manual somewhere, without which the fourth game would be very difficult. (Impossible, I'd imagine.)

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!")
