I’m sure this will be how I start most entries but… so so tired
I think tomorrow might be the first day I can really relax in a good while, so that’ll be nice. Although even then I still got a lot of work-related things to do all weekend.
Being in a different time zone has messed with my perception of time and how I need to schedule my work each day. I used to be able to rely on the fact that I was always like an hour or two ahead of FUNimation, so I could do all sorts of stuff in the morning and know that no one at FUNi was at work yet. But now I’m like an hour behind them, so I gotta change my thinking and my scheduling. It caught me by surprise today when I needed to turn something in and I was like, “Oh crap, it’s almost closing time there!”
After work, I continued my quest of making the apartment not a level from Sokoban/Tomato Boxes. Also got some creatine and some Evangelion DVDs in the mail – I’ve always meant to see Eva all the way through so now’s the time! I’ve seen bits and pieces over the years to get most of it, just never done a full, straight run. Also, the furniture guys showed up and delivered our new table and chairs (the first I’ve ever owned!) and a TV stand. No more sticking the TV on old broken boxes for us, no siree! As always, I messed up putting it together – at the very last step I pretty much had to undo everything and start halfway over, blegh.
I had a few minutes to mess with my phone so I checked out the App Store. Sadly, ROFISH’s iPhone port of my Tomato Boxes game isn’t available anymore – that would’ve been a good first app to get. I also tried the check depositing app my bank has – that was actually a main reason for getting a fancy phone. That way I won’t need to go to the bank very often, which used to be a pain since Poe and I only have the one car that she takes in to Fangamer. I also got Angry Birds just ’cause – I’d only played it on the PS3 before, it’s pretty cool to have on the go. The presentation’s a lot slicker too, oddly enough.
I posted a poll about my Legends of Localization book series I’d like to do in the near future. It looks like the clear choice for the starting book will be a MOTHER 3 one, which is pretty interesting. I didn’t think it’d be that big of a deal, but I guess I just didn’t realize how badly people want to know about the inner workings of the text. I got lots of logistics and legal stuff to figure out before I start. I also gotta figure out how to juggle it with the Final Fantasy IV comparison I’m working on.
Gonna sleep good tomorrow I hope!
Oh yeah, while digging through the closet for allts of stuff I found my copy of EarthBound
