Another not very good day... not anything April Fools' related, although I did spend the morning and half of the afternoon posting a joke video that turned out not to be very good. Oh well. I have only myself to blame, although I want to find out how my computer managed to eat the Checkmate DLL. Maybe I lost it in a system restore around that time. The page that used to host it is dead now, and every single download link I've been able to find just leads back to the dead page. Mirrors, people. Do you know it?

Now I've shut down the desktop in disgust to eat some soft chocolate chocolate chip cookies and wait for my Blu-Ray player's firmware update to finish so I can watch some Doctor Who. I decided to skip The Web Planet for the moment and go straight to The Space Museum. After that is The Chase and then The Time Meddler, two episodes with some far-reaching consequences in the timeline. Not that any episode lacks its fascination quality, particularly early in the series - some of the documentaries are really interesting. I rarely watch any, but last night, I decided to check out the one about researching the writer of The Sensorites, since it was his only Doctor Who credit and he had only one film to his name before that. I can't say that it really adds much to the overall Doctor Who experience, but I loved that story, and knowing more of the writer's background sort of paints the story in a different light. I still have some complaints, but they're more angry rant review material than legitimate criticisms.

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!")
