Locked and Loaded

After the last week of DOOOOM!! I have very little work this week. So I have designated it Official Catch-Up On Video Games Week. So far I have been playing Pokemon Ruby, Spyro: A Hero's Tail, Zelda: The Wind Waker and Ratchet & Clank 2. I've been working my way through the latter two games veeeeeerrrry slowly for over a year - my most recent save game for the Wind Waker was from December, and Ratchet & Clank was from April 2004. Er, yes.

You know, the kind where you get sucked into a bookshop and emerge with a colossal bag of books you didn't know you needed? Fortunately, we were armed with Book Tokens, and my 20% Off All Books discount for preordering Harry Potter 6.

One of these days I will actually write the titles & authors of all the books I hear about and would be interested in buying in a little notebook that I'll carry around with me. Dunno when that'll ever be, though. Probably some time after I write the Pop'n Music 6 faq... (in-joke, meaning "never").

    Today I experienced the joy which is seeing a doctor who doesn't know me. Apparently my usual GP is on holiday somewhere warm, lucky woman. So I was…

  • Still alive.

    I am alive. Coping with the hiatus hernia. Perhaps in a one damned thing after another sort of way. Still, the symptoms have all improved…
