Hey, anyone remember the Xenosaga review I posted 4.5 years ago? Well, I finally finished it. At this rate I'll be done with 3 in 2016.

For anyone that has an existing City of Heroes account, they've activated all of them for free until midnight tomorrow for the Rikti Invasion event.

For anyone else that's interested I'm planning on going to the Renaissance Festival in Sterling on Saturday. I will most likely get there fairly early, like 10ish. (That's early for me.)

Huzzah.

I haven't been weighing myself, but I did go a notch tighter on my belt today. I'll take that as a good sign.

I'm never buying another car ever again. Bus pass for life, yo.

I got in a discussion about this elsewhere, and since it was deemed off topic there I'm going to bring it up here. Personally, I feel that players are the priority and that fictional characters shouldn't be valued more that real people.

What do all of you think?

There's just so many good games, and I don't feel like I'm playing them enough. I have two scheduled games a week, but they don't always work out. I kinda miss some of the old days, when there were games and gamers aplenty.

Some of you fuckers need to move to Ithaca. You know who you are. :)

After 5 years, my car is at death's door. So, I bought a new one yesterday. I don't actually have it yet, but if the financing all goes through I should have it tomorrow night. Amusingly enough it actually has more miles on it than my current one does, but it's in much better shape. It's a 1998 Honda Accord EX with all the fixings. It's funny, because it has a bunch of stuff that I wouldn't have gotten if I was buying a new car and picking the options. Still the price was right on this one, so I ended up with leather seats and power everything, including the moon roof. Hooray for a car that was totally awesome 8 years ago. :)

I'll see about posting pics later this week.

It has occurred to me recently that there are a few types of music that I enjoy listening to, but very rarely hear because I don't actually own any of it. Therefore, I'm looking for suggestions of albums to pick up to cover a few genres. So if any of you out there in LJ-land are a fan of one of these genres and know a good album to fill a hole in a music collection, speak up.

In no particular order:

Swing
Punk
Blues
Ska

Looks like I'll be in town. Anyone got plans yet?

It occurs to me that I probably shouldn't be watching Buffy and Angel while drinking. I think it's messing me up. Oh well.

It seems that earlier reports of my car not being a dying piece of shit were grossly exaggerated.

So, does anyone out there know where I can get good info on hybrids? It looks like I'm in the market for a new car and I'm interested in hybrids, even if it's just the principle of the thing.
