Feeling a big bloggy

So did you see this police cruiser with advertisements on it? Man, how Neuromancer! How Blade Runner! How . . . everything! They all said we'd have advertising on simply EVERYTHING, and they were all right, the bastards. Just you wait, Tokyo is going to blow up again in a BIG WAY, any day now. We'll all be speaking Japanese and eating with chopsticks.

I would also like to take this time to mention that I find it frustrating that the photos on Yahoo's Most Popular do not have links to their corresponding articles in the caption. They do on the foreign Yahoo's, why not US? Dummies.

I will be very upset if we run out of bananas. I'm trying not to make a "yes we have no bananas" joke here, for I fear that Jon will no longer want to see my tits at all.

I've decided on the digital camera that I want, but it's too expensive, so I'm going to try and be patient, in hopes that the price will come down. I am very, very, very bad at being patient.

Yesterday I had to run some errands after work, but of course I was on auto-pilot and started out towards home instead. I realized my mistake, and turned a sharp corner to head back where I was supposed to be headed. As I rounded the corner, I gasped, really, out loud gasped -- the sun was setting directly in front of me, the sun was red, crimson even, the clouds were on fire. It was beautiful, and I was so thankful I had gone the wrong way.

I'm thinking of going to Mardi Gras this year. I can't really afford it, but I'm thinking of doing it anyway. I was hemming and hawing, and then on Tuesday I was watching the Real World (shut up) and one of the bitches said something about "goals" and I thought "that's what I need, I need some goals" so I tried to think of maybe some life goals that I already had, and I remembered that one of them was to go to Mardi Gras, in New Orleans, while I was still fairly young. Seriously, that's one of my goals! So I decided I was silly not to go. I'm trying to remember some of my other goals. Well, one is to go on a cross-country trip. And I have other vague traveling goals, I want to see as much as I can, but I don't know if I have any other specific goals. San Diego, I guess. Ha, isn't that funny? Half of my life's goals are to GET DRUNK AND PAR-TAY. Also I want to own a house someday, but that's not really a big deal.

I keep not getting around to talking about all this amazing stuff that's happened recently. Like the thing I went to in Philly last Thursday, and in particular the train ride home. And last weekend, last weekend was pretty sweet. I did a RIDICULOUS amount of sleeping last weekend. I also stayed up real late both nights, though, so maybe it all evens out. Don't think so, though.

Oh, and I bought Metroid Prime, finally! And an S-video cable because I'm xxhardcorexx. And I pre-reserved a copy of The Legend of Zelda. I've never done that before! I feel so geeky, but in a good way! Man, that whole GBA thing had better not be too necessary. See, apparently a second player can control Link's little pixie buddy, via a Game Boy Advance plugged into the 'Cube, and the pixie gives him hints and finds treasure and something else. Man, GBA's are effing expensive! It had better not be too necessary.

I'm almost finished with Chapterhouse Dune and on the one hand I'm really eager to finish it because I only have a vague memory of how things turn out, and on the other I'll be really really sad when I'm done. The last two books are my favorite, definitely. I will be able to read something ELSE for a change, though, which will be good.

This was a really boring post, and for that I am sorry. I just needed someone to whom to write this morning. My bad.

I'm glad you mentioned the banananas thing. I was afraid to. It's all over every news site, even Slashdot. Man, banas.
Jan. 16th, 2003 06:41 am (UTC)
Man, I hadn't heard the banana thing, and I'm really pretty genuinely upset by it. Man, bananas. Right?

The last paragraph of the banana article says

"We may even see the extinction of the banana as both a lifesaver for hungry and impoverished Africans and as the most popular product on the world's supermarket shelves," the magazine added.

Now... huh? Is this a really poorly constructed sentence or am I dumb? I do not understand what they're trying to say.

It IS a poorly constructed sentence. Let me help.

Apparently, the banana has two main roles.

1. It is a lifesaver for hungry and impoverished Africans
2. It is the most popular product on the world's supermarket shelves

We may see the extinction of the banana!

The end.

Dude, as long as we get more Pocky over here, Tokyo can go wherever it wants.

The GBA thing is just a little bonus doo-dad for folks what has them. "Skies of Arcadia" did something similar to that with their old VMUs, but it wasn't crucial to the gameplay. Still, when you get it, I'll bring my GBA over, and we can feel like REAL dorks.

Oddly enough, there's going to be a Pokemon game coming out for Gamecube within the year, and according to press reports, it WILL only function if you have a GBA with one of the new GBA Pokemon games running in it. This seems something akin to market disaster, but it's also only confirmed for the Japanese market, and they seem to go for these things more than we do.

Speaking of reasons not to grab a GBA yet, have you seen the new ones? They have an internal light, and they look like what would happen if someone tried to turn a GBA into a cell phone. I'm sure IGN.com has pictures.

How's Metroid Prime? I got an XBox for Christmas... well, all the relatives who gave me cash unwittingly contributed to me getting myself an XBox in the general area of Christmas, and Halo has almost turned me around of First-Person Shooters..

I have seen pictures of the new GBA! Man, there was a Penny Arcade the other week about it that cracked my shit up. I don't know why, it was very obtuse (I think? I don't really know how to use that word, but I sure wanted to anyway), but I liked it.

I've only played it once so far! And I was impatient and kept dying. But it's good! And it Revolutionizes The FPS Genre, apparently! I've never actually played an FPS before, if you can believe that. I have to get used to strafing.
Jan. 16th, 2003 12:33 pm (UTC)
I didn't think you COULD strafe in Metroid Prime.
Jan. 16th, 2003 12:44 pm (UTC)

I dunno, that's what Mitch was calling it. "You have to strafe, try strafing."
Jan. 16th, 2003 03:47 pm (UTC)
I am about to get those exact two games - except in GBA version. OK, fine...so not those EXACT two games, but the same franchise. Metroid Fusion and Legend of Zelda, The: 'The Washu of Terror' or some such subtitle. ;)
Jan. 17th, 2003 06:38 am (UTC)
If you complete Metroid Fusion, and then bring it over to my house, we can play the original Metroid!

And if you bring your GBA over, you can be my little fairy assistant! HA!
Jan. 17th, 2003 12:52 pm (UTC)
the original Metroid with the Fusion armor. you so crazy, Nintendo!
Jan. 17th, 2003 07:14 am (UTC)
nothing to do with your post......
jesus what kind of horrible drugs did you have to give to that poor rabbit to get it to pose for that sordid, cross species buggery?
Jan. 17th, 2003 07:59 am (UTC)
OMG you didn't hear of the internet sensation that is Oolong? It's okay, I didn't either until he died last week.

Re: nothing to do with your post......
P.S. He's not drugged, he's just very very patient. Was.
Jan. 17th, 2003 09:46 am (UTC)
little washu, i'm sorry i never added you to my OH SO ELITE friends list & am currently rectifying the mistake. we apologise for the inconviance.
Jan. 17th, 2003 10:07 am (UTC)
and THIS was the post that changed your mind? appalling.
mordicai, I don't understand 98% of the things that you say, but I'mo add you back anyway so that you can read my deepest and darkest.
Jan. 17th, 2003 10:18 am (UTC)
