Now, that was what a day should be - aside from the rather painfully early start. I needed to get in about an hour earlier than usual (arriving at about the earliest time I ever manage to leave), I was fifteen minutes later than my target time, and I just arrived as the person I was supposed to escort was getting signed in. Good timing on my part. The meetings that drew almost everyone to the lab didn't go quite as smoothly as anticipated, but we did end up with the desired schedules for all but one of the tasks on our list, and I hope that people have a better understanding overall of what we're doing. I think I'm more confused, but that's meetings for you. And had I left when I had the chance and not stayed late, my laundry might be done by now. At least I may have the time to watch some Doctor Who while putting it away.

Every year, my old college creeps me out more with their appeals for money. I still give, largely because I get the feeling that they won't leave me alone if I don't, but I feel like they may be selling out - literally. Also, who the hell calls someone to tell them stories for a few minutes, then ask for five thousand dollars like it's no big thing? "Hey, can you spare an extraordinary amount of money?" I felt awkward asking my own mother for that much, and did finally pay her back this weekend. You think I'm just made of five thousand dollarses? Quit looking at my Kickstarter history! You're (probably) not making an awesome game, so you get a smaller amount of money! And no, I'm not giving you all of my personal details! And QUIT TRYING TO UPSELL ONCE I'VE SETTLED ON AN AMOUNT! What's my reward tier? The big empty box, minus the box? Yeah... let me get back to you with no more money.

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!")
