Sunday Round-up

Mood: Great
Listening to: Mitch, on Youtube, playing Demon’s Souls (GameFrontDotCom). I watched one of his episodes on Dark Souls and I heard he did Demon’s Souls, and I’ve never seen anyone playing that game, so I thought I’d check it out. And it’s fun… well, funny.

Regarding Dark Souls. I’ve heard, and seen, that it’s a very difficult game. I think I’d get really frustrated playing it, so that’s why I watch others play it. I think I’d get too pissed off at things re-spawning all the time. I mean, I know that Diablo 2 had their nasties re-spawn, but not in the same game as you’re playing.
My list of games I want is starting to get really long. Topping the list at the moment, because I will actually be able to play it on my computer, is Sims 3 Holiday thing. I saw a trailer, and in the game you’ll be able to go to f.ex. Egypt and go exploring in the pyramids. Or go to Asia and learn karate. Next on the list is Skyrim. I either need a new computer for it or a PS3. I want a PS3, too, cause I want Little Big Planet… And now it seems that we have to wait even longer for Diablo 3 to be released. I mean, guys… Come on! We’re dying here! I still need a new computer to play Diablo 3, so it’s not a REAL hurry… just… this year, please :3
I hope I get a new computer this year. I doubt it’ll happen, but it would be nice. At least get things so that I can upgrade the one I have. But that’ll mean a full upgrade of EVERYTHING, and that’s expensive… so I might as well just get a new one… quad-core, of course… heh… <.<;;;;
Anywho. I just finished baking. I made cinnamon rolls. Soooo goood cinnamon rolls.
Other than that I don’t think there is more to say. Only that I don’t have snacks for movie time tonight. Unless Jan is nice and drives me to the store when he gets home. We’ll see.
So I guess I’ll catch you later. I’ll update if I have anything new.



Mood: Great
Listening to: GhostRobo talking about stuff….on youtube, of course.

Not that I celebrate it. I might get some strawberries and dip them in chocolate. That’ll be the extent of my celebrationeness of Valentines Day.
I don’t need this day to remind me or make me show that I love Jan. I hope I show him every day, and I don’t need to give him stuff to prove it. Not that I think he’d like to get a bear with a heart that says “I love you”. He’d laugh at it and shake his head a little.
So yeah. Enjoy the day. Celebrate it if you want to.


Sunday Round-up

Mood: Good
Listening to: TheRadBrad playing Heavy Rain on Youtube.

Nothing has really happened at all. Worked Monday, did bosslady a favour on Tuesday posting some stuff for her, worked yesterday, and that’s about it. Yeah, I know. So f’ing exciting.
I also started reading a new book, starring Inspector Morse. In case you don’t know it’s a TV series.. or was. Anywho…. I’ve been reading it, and I figured out who did it before they did.. yay.. lol.
I think it’s called “the way through the forest” or something along those lines in English. I am, for once, reading a book in Norwegian. Actually, in the book there are two separate Morse stories, and I started the other one this morning when I couldn’t get back to sleep. Seems interesting. But I’m pretty sure that when I’m done with that book I’ll go back to Stephen King and one of his many books. I think I’ll try to continue reading “Insomnia”. I might have stopped reading it right before it got interesting.. just like when I read Lord of the Rings the first time. I should also get The Stand done. But I don’t know. It gave me weird dreams. Not of an old lady or a red scary dude or anything.. they were just weird… so I had to give it a break. I might even read IT again.

Well, I guess that’s about it, really. Nothing major happened this week.


Sunday Round-up

Mood: Happy
Listening to: Right now it’s Scorch82 and Shadowzack playing Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. These guys are hilarious. You should also check out Scorch82’s Diablo 2 walk through.. if you’re interested in Diablo, that is.

So, yeah.
Nothing much has happened lately, other than it’s been freezingly cold here. But it’s winter, so what can you do. Last night when Jan left for work it had started snowing. It’s still snowing.. Luckily it’s not a whole lot, so it’s possible to drive through it. However, if it continues like this it’ll be harder to do so. We’ll see later when Jan leaves for work again. Either he’ll be OK or I’ll have to push him.. or rather push the car.
Also we have mice. Well, I killed one last night, so I don’t know if we still have them. I’m sorry, but I’d rather kill them with a trap than put out bate and have them die in the walls. That’ll leave a stank! I guess it was a few days ago… a week max, that I heard something moving in the dining room, which really is the living room/dining room area… lol, so posh. Anyways, I told Jan and since we couldn’t find a trap we had to wait. The next day it was over by my computer, at which point I WANT A TRAP!!!! So we got a trap, Norwegian design. I haven’t used one of these before, so it was interesting to see if it’d work. I also got some nutella knock off and out it on a newspaper and put the trap over it. And so started the waiting game. While waiting I’ve been following TheRadBrad on youtube; his play through of Heavy Rain is great. And when his girlfriend is helping it’s just hilarious. I’ve also watched Vash12349’s play through of Sly Cooper. I think he was one of the first people I started to follow on youtube. I think it was his Dark Space that got me hooked. He’s great at what he does, and the way he doesn’t give a shit what people think of his playthroughs, how he only plays the games that he wants to play etc. well, I feel that it’s how is should be done. If you want someone who doesn’t swear and so on, go find another player. There are a lot of them.
Anyways. I waited for days and days before the f’ing mouse finally got caught in the trap. I just escorted him out and gave him/her a snowy burial.. meaning I dumped him on the ground in the snow.
If only I could get the mice to understand that this house is not a good house to break into. I’ll only end up killing them. Maybe I should chop the tiny mouse’s head of and put it on a toothpick as a warning to the other mice.
Other than that nothing else has happened. I worked on Friday, had a great old time, as always. And right now I’m enjoying a lovely can of Cherry Coke. I love that stuff. Too bad I don’t have ice cubes. But straight from the can is OK too..
I’ll see if I can be bothered to write a movie review one of these days.
