Actually, I got internet a while ago now (around the 11th of May), but haven’t sit down to write, blog, design, draw, code, or game much at all since then. Shh >_<
I have moved every piece of furniture that I, my brother, and my parents own over several weekend and, while fine exercise, I really don’t want to lift another mattress for the rest of the year, pretty please. There’s just no good way to get a grip on those suckers, especially when short and on the wrong end of one on a flight of stairs. Stairs with sharp turns. Mattresses, it should be noted, do not make sharp turns well. BUT I’M NOT BITTER, HONEST.
I’ve also spent a great deal of time visiting Tante in her new nursing home. She’s healthy, more or less (kinda sorta maybe occasionally), but not all there most times I visit and it’s basically kinda destroying my soul piece by piece. So I’ve not talked about it much. Not even in my private handwritten journal do I write about how it feels, so this might be the last I say about publically unless things change.
Time flies, eh? May has just completely zoomed by! Granted, I’ve wasted a lot of May because, while internet took a while to get set up in my new room, cable was pre-installed. It has been years since I’ve had access to tv like that, and I spent, easily, omg number of hours flicking through just because I could. I wasn’t even watching anything good! Ok, yes, hockey, but also random daily repeats of ancient Saturday Night Live, Buffy, the SportsCentre loop, some PBS, daytime talk shows (90% of which are truly terrible and I’ll never get some of those IQ points back), and I’ve learned that there’s a staggering amount of really terrible cartoons on these days. With what good animation costs to make, you’d think they’d spend some time on a script and not hiring the first people that walked by the building to do voice acting. Worse still, I think a lot of the stuff I thought was terrible was a Canadian production.
Anyway, gaming. I’ve done none. I’ve played some Beat Hazard when I wanted to be slight more active than just listening to music, but that’s it. I FINALLY own Journey, but have not had some uninterrupted time to play it. Hopefully all the hype since launch hasn’t ruined my expectations of it! But it’s been long enough since everyone wouldn’t shut up about it that I think whatever it turns out to be will be a pleasant surprise :)
My super tiny room is still packed with my zillions of boxes of gaming gear and tech, but each week I make a little more progress towards actual breathing space and *gasp* shooting space! I miss filming so much. I guarantee I’m more than a little rusty, and my gaming backlog is bigger than ever, but the only way to fix that is to start playing and shooting, right? ;)
