…yes, as a matter of fact, I did forget to pay my hosting bills. Credit card expired, and I didn’t notice the emails from them or anyone else. The notices went to an old email I rarely monitor, and the other emails from folks inquiring about my absence were just overlooked because… well, they were overlooked.
I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately. Holidays, woo hoo. Seasons greetings everyone. Spent a lot of time playing Everquest; gotten back into it on a progression server (which starts over with the original game and releases expansion content in chronological order.) Taken up a lot of my time, but I’ve gotten…. maybe not bored, but dissatisfied with it.
Was at Fry’s yesterday, so I picked up Girls Bravo and Utawarerumano. Not decided whether I’m going to watch them or give them as presents.
Weak anime season is weak. Gotten bored with it. Every now and then I’ll binge and catch up. Still debating whether Asterisk or Cavalry are doing the better job of “combat harem with redhead princess” stories. They’re so similar, I have trouble remembering which is what.
Gotten into the Madan no Ou to Vanadis light novels; read them all over the last few weeks. Thought it might make a decent anime…what, it was, in 2014? Hm. Robert will have it in Feb. if it makes release. I expect to be purely annoyed by the female knight Lim… as written, her personality is somewhat “Saber-ish” but as drawn, she’s a little blonde cutie. Two supporting characters die at different times (the first may occur in the anime; the second will not). The first had me immediately and cynically in mind of Rocky, but the second…
…oh damn, the second. That hurt. Like “sad girls in snow” / Kanon 2006 level. It still hurts, and I think it’s because of the situational parallels to my mother’s death watch. Which I confess, had nothing to do with a crowning moment of awesome in battle. (Said to keep this from being too much “feels”).
Well anyway, to bury the lede: “I’m alive.”
