So yeah, I haven’t posted here in a while have I? I guess I should do something about that…
This is me doing something about that.
Anyway, yeah, I’m not dead, and the blog isn’t dead either, just comatose (the blog, not me, although when I’m asleep…). Call it hibernation for winter if that makes you feel better, although I’m really quite sure that what I say or do on my own personal blog really doesn’t have much bearing on how any of you (total of maybe 3 people) feel, and if it does – SEEK HELP. Immediately.
Anyway (I start a lot of sentences with “anyway”, did you notice that?) the reason that the blog has been so dead quiet is because I’ve been distracted (just like the title says) playing games (I believe the title mentions this as well). I bought Super Mario Galaxy for the Wii (wheeeee!) and it’s quite a bit of fun. I’m up at like 33 stars and I’ve been enjoying most of it. Also, I’ve been up at my friend’s place playing Assassin’s Creed (cus he gots da PS3, not me) like a MADMAN. I have to totally give him props, or cred, or whatever the cool kids are saying these days, because he’s totally let me monopolize his system for the last three days -Ã‚Â enjoying the hell out of HIS game, which he hasn’t beaten, or barely even played – while he sits there watching or playing some DS game that he’s not asÃ‚Â engrossed inÃ‚Â as I am with Creed (which is what I’m calling it from now on because it’s shorter, although by adding this sentence to explain that fact I’ve kind of defeated the purpose). I’m currently up on the 7th assassination IIRC which means, to the best of my assumptive (yes that’s actually a word) knowledge, that I’m 2/3 of the way through the game, as it appears from the menus and such that there are a total of 9 assassinations, perhaps 10. I’ve not been collecting all the flags, as I’m dreadful at noticing them – I can’t count how many times I’ve been running down the street (in the game, I don’t run IRL [read: lazy]) and gone whizzing right past a flag just as Ed would look up from his game and go, “Flag.”
To which I’d stop my headlong rush through the crowd and say, “What? No way.. where?”
Then I’d meander back through the path I’d come andÃ‚Â find the flag,Ã‚Â sitting just barely off to the side, mocking me for not having noticed it – hell for not having picked it up by accident, I’ve done that a few times as well – when I ran past it not 10 seconds ago. At this point I’ll vent my frustration a little by killing some random guard, which may or may not set off all the surrounding guards, at which point I’ll either run away like aÃ‚Â leetle monkey (?), or stick around and proceed to decimate my foes with my ability to counter every attack that comes my way – or get hit in the nuts when I try to grab (I need an adult!).
Shit, gotta wrap this up… uh… bye?
