Gazing back at the deep-time abyss of several months past, I asked myself: "U HAVIN A GIGGLE, M8?"

I am a total corpse through the last half of winter. I accept this. This year has been... so gross though. I'm telling myself that I'm too tired for activities that require proper thinking but ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. It just feels ssssssso grossssssss. I think it is finally time for me to flip off my employers and take a week-long vacation or something. I'd need to find a place to hide first. I'm not taking time off so that I can listen to my family being obtuse for a solid week, goddammit, and they know where I live and they can smell when I have leisure time. (Uh, okay no, I casually talk about my schedule like an idiot all the time so I don't forget what I'm supposed to be doing, but that is not an invitation for anyone to hijack it.)

Whatever, I guess I feel sort of functional. Also I've been making up nicknames for the Game of Thrones cast. I'll never get through all of them, but I've found it a useful exercise in remembering what the fuck is going on.

Eddard "Dead Ned" Stark
Catelyn "Unmanned Metal Gear" Stark

Oop, it seems I will be getting x-ray results and a big snowstorm for my birthday!! :D

Also, a buffet dinner on Saturday. And yesterday I got official confirmation that Ubi will be sending me to E3 and TGS this year, all costs covered. I do still need to see if I can schwing some kind of a deal about TGS and go visit a friend in Korea before or after, but I am hopeful that something can be worked out. If nothing else, I'll get her to come guide me through Tokyo, oh my god h e l p I am already terrified about trying to find my way around.

.... so is this some kind of cosmic balancing of the scales? It's actually extremely unnerving to get a lot of good news at once.

Snow White and the Huntsman, Ravenna, 1100 words.
Bathed in blood, all birds are of a feather.

No such thing
Conan the Barbarian (2011), Conan, 11000 words.
A Cimmerian is at peace only when he seeks war.

I guess other stuff happened too, but I seriously don't remember much about it so I can only assume it wasn't very interesting. :')

Last night I was pulled off a cliff in a dream by these.... very sneaky merpeople. I think they were trying to take me somewhere underwater but I drowned, so they decided to just go ahead and eat me. Except. The one who had been holding onto me wouldn't let any of the others come close. Eventually it swam off and then sank to the bottom of the sea and just lay there with my body.

I feel so bad??? For dying?!? But I really do. It irritates me that The Girl In The Dream was definitely supposed to be Me even though it wasn't really necessary. Looking back on it consciously, that sort of takes away from the narrative somehow. And I want to know more about the merfolk! They gave me the sense that they were vicious by nature but they were also confused, like there was something wrong or they were lost, and that was provoking weird behaviour in a few of them.

When I got home for the weekend, my brother insisted that I play through the Metal Gear Rising demo because "the boss is a super-intelligent cybernetic dogcat with a chainsaw tail which I thought was, like, up your alley" and the moral of the story is that my brother is a good guy.

And now I'm excited for the game! It looks gorgeous and plays pretty much like a later Devil May Cry, so I'll probably enjoy running through it at least once. I do get why certain Metal Gear fan factions haaaate it on principle but.... I just feel jaded at this point. I've watched some multi-game series mutate into the final form of fuckuppedness, and I've stared at my most beloved series sitting dead in the water for years, so. Welcome to video games?

I saw Dredd on Tuesday, loved it a lot. Went alone because no one was able to accompany me (and, let's be real, I didn't make a huge effort to ask around) but I think I was more comfortable that way. I didn't feel like wearing A Personable Face, though I did get all dressed up to ensure that I would leave a beautiful corpse if the Skyfall crowd trampled me. Fortunately I left while they were still corralled in line-ups! Anyway, Ma-Ma needs to be my girlfriend.
