Merry

I finally got the PSP that's been on my list for all these years - the R&C: Size Matters edition. Now to get Chains of Olympus and finally see what the lack of fuss is about. I also got a Blu-Ray of Iron Man, an AC/USB battery pack, Monty Python Fluxx (which we played tonight... some of the specific Monty Python-oriented rules are a bit silly, but getting to speak in outrageous fake accents for bonus plays was fun), Assassin's Creed and Rock Band 2 for the PS3, Wario Land: Shake It for the Wii, Professor Layton and the Curious Village for the DS, and season 3 of How I Met Your Mother, as well as all the usual stocking stuffers and an ice scraper with an attached glove. And a $25 gift card for Best Buy. I had the smallest quantity of gifts, but the quality is all there.

The annual Christmas movie this year was Bolt, but it took us a couple of tries to get it right. The paper listed the showtime as 1:30, but the actual time was 2:30, so we went back home, ate lunch, and skipped concessions. The movie was great, as one would expect from Pixar, and the obvious predictable elements still had plenty of emotional impact. I'm still pretty interested in the show within the movie, though... as much as it reminds me of what I liked about Inspector Gadget, even down to the girl's name being Penny. There's something I like about young girls who can fend for themselves against enemy agents, even if they need a super-powered dog to help them. But the movie's not really about that. That's just the part of me that notices things in stories that I want to write about later.

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!")
