Still under the 200% time mark... barely

Today's Bridge: We spent the first part of our 10-12 meeting talking about schedules, which was slightly relevant in that the discussion was about how much we could get done in the remaining time, but really should have been solidified by the people with decision-making power before the meeting, because we were all just sitting there laughing at the guy who derailed our meeting. The actual discussion of stuff we needed to talk about went until 1:30, and that basically consisted of us putting everything of high priority and a good number of low-priority, high-safety impact fixes on our list, which was originally only supposed to be dubiously three items long. Now THAT'S scope creep. But they finally accepted the fix they've been flip-flopping on all this time, mainly because we plan to get our UI design stabilized quickly, crank out a build, and send it to them for testing so they can decide whether or not to include it, without interrupting our other development.

Today's Work: I can fight up to four groups of Noise at a time, and I can equip four Pins - I picked a health recovery pin for my extra slot because I fought three Hard Noise and one Medium in a row and barely survived. (This was also the first time I'd dabbled with the HP meter, and it was set to 3/6... I set it to 1/6 for one fight, but that didn't do much for me, so I raised it and resolved to fight chains more often.) I still wonder what I missed, and might start a new file to go see, but I'm not too worried. Knowing more of what's coming will help me prepare better for future runs, although I still don't want anyone to tell me about it. I've tried the subtle, polite hints that I don't appreciate spoilers, but those don't seem to be getting through, so... PLEASE stop telling me what's coming in the game. I like playing games for myself. Really. Honestly. I promise.

More forms to fill out and mail in, with an even shorter lead time. Thanks for the advance notice, guys. Great time of year to expect forms to get through the mail quickly, too. I know NOBODY is sending lots of stuff from place to place in December. I hate the stupidity I encounter on a day-to-day basis. I may or may not bother to rush the processing of this stuff... if they screw up my HSA because my forms are a few days late, I trust them to sort it all out eventually. It's not my fault they're idiots. Besides, I have more important things to do tonight than fill out inane forms. Right, Elika?

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!")
