/Kels used UPDATE, it's SUPER EFFECTIVE!  
So I'm at three shots of vodka o'clock, but the point remains! I'm sorry I've kind of abandoned LJ. The funny thing is I still use it for gaming pretty religiously aside from some Dreamwidth stuff I have going with Azy, and I always check my friendslist, but yeah. I have a plurk now as well as a tumblr, and those have kind of become my go-to girls for both art and social interaction, but let's have a look-see at what's been going on since the last update, which I am just going to rely on memory for and not actually check.

I've dropped a few games, joined a few more, had a one-sided emotional fling and got a pay raise in the meantime. Which doesn't really make up for my hours cut but I keep reminding myself: I am consistently employed in a job I don't hate that pays for insurance as well as gives me a MINIMUM of 32 hours a week WHILE making above minimum wage, which is more than most RPers can say. The downside is I always feel so out of the loop and left out because I am off earning my daily bread. But hey at least I am not a Libertarian. (Sorry to the liber- you know, no. I am sorry you are libertarian. Not that I said that.) I also remain NOT Orson Scott Card, and that being the only thing Devin ever asked of me I feel I'm doing pretty good as long as I continue with that.

I went to the midnight showing of Harry Potter Deathly Hollows 2, it was all that I dreamed and more. I also fell entirely in love with Captain America which I can only describe as similar to MY LITTLE PONY in nature (That is, the general initial reaction when you say IT'S AWESOME can be "Really? My Little Pony?" then, three episodes in, "MY LITTLE PONY!!!! ♥ ♥ ♥" - when viewing Captain America, Amanda and so many others were initially (unsure) regarding it. "Really? Captain America?" but after viewing, it was all "CAPTAIN AMERICA!!!!! ♥ ♥ ♥" Chris Evans, I am sorry I ever doubted you.

Even if 90lb Asthmatic Steve Rogers kinda hits Uncanny Valley.

Since Amanda's back in the USA we've been spending at least one day every weekend hanging out, usually with at least Sushi-Kittens-Coffee (there's a pet store between coffee and sushi, so we usually walk by and peer at the kittens in the window) though lately they have sold all of their kittens!!!! so I wonder what new animal they will have in their window pen.

I've also been playing Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep again - I can't say I'm replaying it as I only finished Ven's quest and started Terra's last time, but picking it back up again I've found I can handle Terra a lot better. Before I always got frustrated because I favor the lightning-fast lighter hitters (why I can never play God of War no matter how much male gamers may masturbate to it. Myth ARRRRGHGJKLASKL;JS' aside, KRONOS MOVES LIKE MOLASSES. I CANNOT HANDLE IT. WHAT IS WRONG WITH HIM. IS HE UNDER THE EFFECT OF A 'SLOW' SPELL?) and Terra is SO SLOW. Picking the game back up after several months of letting it idle made me realize, Terra is actually FASTER than most vidya game protagonists, it's just that I was comparing him to Endgame Ven, who is the FASTEST of the three protagonists, and basically a spidermonkey on pixie sticks. Without that bias, it's much easier to cope with his speed, and I suddenly want to play Terra in something somewhere. Hell, not even Terra. LINGERING WILL I want to play somewhere.

Either way, Terra and Ven are now down, and I am free to play Aqua. Save the best for last, baby. She is so amazing. I ship her and Cinderella too. Cinderella brings all the keyblade masters to the yard, apparently.

Alright, I ran out of interest to update this thing now.

At first, I was all, "Hey, I have a steady job too!" But then I realized... I hardly RP any more. I just don't have nearly as much energy for it when I am working full time. These days, I am down to one weekly online table-top game and idling for weeks on Sariel's journalsgame. This makes me sad. :(
