Today's Manga: I decided to use a personal shopping day, so I bought a few extra things. It'll be obvious which ones they are. Tenjou Tenge 10, Nodame Cantabile 7, Pichi Pichi Pitch 3, Tsubasa 11, DearS 8, Boys Be 11, Air Gear 1 and 2, Aoi House 1, Omukae Desu 1, La Corda D'Oro 1 (the preview didn't give me much to go on, but it looked like it has a lot of potential), the Battle Royale novel, Strawberry Marshmallow DVDs 2 and 3 (I didn't notice until I got them home and opened the shrinkwrap that the case for the second one is pretty smashed, but the DVD seems to be intact), and the complete series of Strangers with Candy, which isn't anime, but now that I spend so much time playing PS2 games and watching English DVDs, I'm catching up on old series that I never got into, like Arrested Development, Strangers with Candy, and The Critic, which I watched about half of today while playing Dark Cloud.

Today's Dark Cloud: I finally found the coveted 5-foot Nail for Ungaga, beat the Sun and Moon Temple, then got Osmond and used up all of my Fishing Points buying gems for upgrades, so I'm sitting in Muska Lacka fishing for more. I caught a few Mardan Garayan (tiny ones, though) and a rather small Baron Garayan, but I've got plenty of Potato Cakes and a Poison Apple left, and plenty of time to fish. And quite a few FP for when I run out of time and need to head back into the dungeons. Weapon-wise, I hardly gave Toan any ABS at all, so his weapon hasn't upgraded. Xiao has the Divine Beast Title, Goro's Battle Ax isn't far away from evolving, Ruby has a Goddess Ring which is getting close, Ungaga has the Mirage and will definitely be building it up the right way (as in NOT Hercules' Wrath), and Osmond's got a Snail fully ready to evolve into a Blessing Gun, but I'm not stupid... it's going to become a Skunk. I've been raising its elemental levels bit by bit with regular attechments, since I've got no other use for them and didn't have enough FP to buy gems while I explored the Moon Sea, and he gains levels quickly, so I can two-putt my way to enough Ice power to finish building up.

Today's Dinner: As I promised Curt last night when I said I didn't want to go there, we went to Waffle House tonight. I was surprised at the size and price of the portions... plenty of food for the money, in contrast to, say, Bob Evans. And they've got a pretty big selection and hours you can't beat. We might make that a regular breakfast stop, or he might.

Given that Livejournal was down most of the day, I didn't have much else to do. But I noticed that Ookami isn't on my Christmas list, so maybe I can pick it up sometime before Christmas...


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!")
