Also, props to sakanagai for figuring out how to get into the menu of my DVD player and turn on surround sound. Some of my instruction manuals disappeared in the move.
Lots of progress in Dead Rising... I killed all of the psychos in the jeep (although they come right back, and all I get for it is their heavy machinegun) and that freakish clown (much easier once I got the hang of his pattern), and Curt told me that the senile guard wasn't quite so senile after all, which will be a big help in the future. And I experimented with mixing drinks, coming up with some very useful concoctions and some that don't appear to be very useful at all. I may manage to survive the three days this time, although I don't know how well I'll fare in later missions.
The ending of Midori Days was almost exactly what I expected, but still worth reading nonetheless. Highly recommended.
And now time for bed, leading into a relatively normal week with only filling out my travel voucher as an uncomfortable reminder of the past week. I feel like I've been out of work for two weeks, even though it's really only been one. That's just how crazy my life has been. But you already know that.
