One more day… to the weekend.
Top of my list this time: No Game No Life. I know, I know, I mentioned previously that I have no interest in watching it… but… the song was just so… catchy and I just somehow couldn’t help myself. But yeah, it’s fun, and I really like the interaction between the two siblings, Sora and Shiro. I don’t really care for the other characters so far, and I’m just rooting for these two socially awkward, too-smart-for-their-own-good siblings. Although if I had kids and they didn’t do anything but stayed home and played video games, I’d smack them so hard they regret leaving the womb. Because why do I have to work when they get to enjoy themselves, okay.
Also, they won my heart with their use of references, like the Phoenix Wright, Ace Attorney’s most famous line of ‘Objection’ and a random Skyrim throwaway line, you know, the really popular one about taking an arrow to the knee.
I just finished Cryoburn the other day and it is such a lovely romp with the awesome Miles Vorkosigan, that crafty little bastard. I thought he was much more mellow than in the previous books, which is probably a given, since he’s much older and technically wiser. I still prefer the older books, because ultimately this one was slightly lackluster or maybe my memory has romanticised this idea of Miles and here, he’s not as smart-mouthed and twitchy, haha.
Been OT-ing a lot lately due to an influx of work to plow through, and yeah, my mood has been plummeting faster than stocks during a market crash. But the flip side of staying late at the office means that the trains are relatively empty when I board them, so that’s a plus. These days, I take my victories when I get them, not nit-picking anything at all.
Got two more Memeboxes in the mail~ which is always cool. I love trying out new products, even though not everything is suitable for me, and I guess I just like the anticipation of not knowing what I’ll be getting. *shrug* Maybe I’ll do an unboxing review some other time.
I’m so glad that Pewds decided to continue with his Corpse Party playthrough, because he has a tendency to drop games and he seems to have quite a number of them on his plate already. I know the storyline and the gameplay already but I kind of want to see how he fares. Heh.
And Cry playing Okami~ :DDDD I love this game, it’s so pretty and anything that involves folklore or mythology is a solid win in my books.
Went to check out Strangers’ Reunion with the fellow temps after work and we had quite a fun time there, what with dinner and dessert and a lot of random crapping about.
Their proper food, like your main courses, weren’t anything exciting or revolutionary. They were pretty ordinary, in fact. But I really enjoyed their desserts, we shared a waffle and a cake, which both vanished within 5 minutes of arrival. The service wasn’t too shabby either, since we were quite a troublesome lot: order changes/demand for water + napkins + Tabasco sauce + photo-taking etc.
