What's New With You?

Recommended Posts

There’s gonna be an FLCL panel at this year’s C2E2 and I’m hoping I manage to get into it. They’ve got the head of Toonami, some Japanese producers, and Kari Wahlgren. Maybe they’ll preview the first episode since they’re making such a big deal of it.

Tax return season! And now I can pay off my credit cards, fix up a few things around the house, and buy a little something.

We decided that we wanted to get a new King sized bed.

Now we had one before when we first got married, but that bed was 20 years old and my wife didn't like that it was the same bed that I had when I was amarried before. So she had a queen sized bed that was in storage that was practically new and it had a nice frame and headboard that came with a matching dresser. So we have been using that for the past three years. It was fine when it was just us, but now that our girls are "Co-sleeping" in there, it is just way too small. (Also my Wife is a bed hog.)

So I was thinking of getting a new serta pillowtop mattress from Sams club for around $600, but we wanted to test it out first, so we went to Mattress firm last night to do so. However, while we were there we found out that we really love the memory foam mattresses. The problem was those things would have $1900-$2500! So I went home last night and found nice Beauty Rest brand 12" Memory foam mattress on Wayfair, and got it and boxsprings for $860 shipped to my door! Now I just have to wait two weeks toi get it and I will finally be able to sleep comfortably again!

Got another check in the mail for a settlement issue. Back when I was in college there was a problem that sprung up where maintenance entered several apartments without the consent of the tenants in my apartment complex. I didn't have that problem, but everyone who lived in the apartments at that time (according to the attached letter) gets part of the settlement. This is the 3rd check now I've gotten from this, but hey, I'm not complaining!

It's like the Jelly of the Month Club: it's the gift that keeps on giving.

I would, but I'm tired of seeing that meme already. I never found the bit that funny in the first place, and now I hate it altogether.

I can totally understand it; I don't think the bit itself gets funny until Skinner realizes the kitchen is on fire, but the Ace Attorney adaptation is excellent -- it's done by someone who very clearly knows and loves Ace Attorney.

I actually have started a collection of Steamed Hams memes on YouTube. It's pretty open so if you have any you want me to add into the playlist, lemme know

Neat. Haven't heard much for FLCL2 after that trailer dropped.

Finished the Shadow of the Colossus PS4 remake. It helps this game isn't TOO long, but man, it was great playing through the game again. Bluepoint Studios did a fine job with this remake, capturing the spirit of the original while adding in some nice new things. Certainly the best looking game I've seen on the PS4.

PQube is quickly becoming one of my favorite publishers. They’re always putting out these small, weird games and they always get physical copies on Vita. They’re the guys that’ve been doing the Steins;Gate games, they did Root Letter, White Day remaster on PS4, and of course Omega Labyrinth. A lot of games people gave up on getting. My Vita is gonna get a lot of play this year.

My only Wednesday class is from 8-9, so I've had a bit of free time. Using it mostly to finish up a portfolio for my statistics course, and to watch tutorial videos on Civ VI.

Never watched the whole show aside from an episode here and there but I guarantee you half a show is not essential. Twilight Zone is one of my favorite series ever but half the show is non-essential. Most fans disregard an entire season altogether.

If you want to get someone into something, giving them a list like that is too long. It’s an hour long show too. Cut it down to 5 episodes that’ll appeal to your wife.

I have to agree with eal. Next Generation is a great series, but the list of what's probably essential is far shorter.

I ended up with 3 valentines today. Well done, Demo :P

Found out my sleep apnea is mild to the point where it may go away after my frame is removed.

I spent all yesterday drawing my Dragon Quest Valentine for all my friends. XD;; So today I am totally wiped out. But my Valentine surprised me with some gifts today so that makes up for the tiredness I think!

The goal is to have one very special Valentine (else it's not a very special thing), not to have 100 run of the mill dime a dozen ones collecting them like stamps cheapening their value. XD;;; Lordamercy.

I only asked 1 girl if that counts. The rest I volunteered so they wouldn't be alone. But the larger picture is that I'm getting less awkward around them and coming out of my shell. From a personal development standpoint, this is a huge milestone forward.

How long did it take you to compile that list?!

 

I've been watching The Next Generation for months on Netflix. I think I'm on the fourth season now. I was never into Star Trek before but I've been having a blast binge-watching this.

Sound like what I'll be doing! I'm planning to play a lot of Monster Hunter World and work on my DQXI Symphonic Suite topic.
