Easter has come and gone and i have just come to the realization that i have not had a Cadbury Cream Egg at all this year. i had one small snack bag size of the candy coated chocolate Eggs, but that's it. this makes me very very sad.

yesterday, my work computer decided it didn't like LJ. i couldn't log on at all. fortunately it works today or i would be even more sad.

i'm feeling a little bit blue today and i'm not quite sure why. maybe it's the grey sky? well, Rocky should be fun tonight, and seeing a bunch of my college friends is always fun.

i finished up a major quest in Icewind Dale last night, so it's a good breaking point. (since i won't be able to play again for several days.) though now that i've gotten into the game, there are certain things i will do differently when i next start up a game. for example, for this kind of game, while the extra healing spells a paladin can offer is nice, it's not as good as a straight fighter's ability to have 4 weapons in the quickslot (as opposed to 2 or 3 of the other characters) and the fighter's ability to have more than 2 specilization slots for his/her weapon proficincies. part of me just wants to start over again :) and why not? i'm just playing this to have fun, not to beat it. in fact, part of me doesn't quite want to get past the point where Akiko and i left off this past december (which is still another major quest and a bit beyond what i have just done this past week) but Akiko and i will have to start over anyway since we lost our saved game with her recent computer loss. (gosh... thinking about the game here as got me wanting to go home and play and not be at work. *laughs* i'm such a geek sometimes).

Lost continues to amaze me. i LOVE that show. it's been a while since i've been this excited about a show, particularly one that has a continuing story. (i mean, i adore Who's Line and Queer Eye, but those are different kind of shows.)

i caught myself back up on a fanfic series i've been reading for several years now. (has it really been so long?) i don't often read fanfics now, as i said in a previous rant. frustrating trying to find that one or two good ones in a sea of self-insertion crap. this particular story is a 'what-if' Johnny the Homicidal Maniac slash/shonen-ai story. (and slash=shonen-ai, not the other kind of slashing Nny does. though there's some of that too... there would have to be.. its a JtHM story after all!) its actually a believable slash story too. the author has a strong sense of the characters. i say 'slash' but it's not really... well, i mean, when you consider Nny's character that should be clear... he doesn't like being touched! it's been a while since i last checked, so there were 2 new chapters, which was very exciting. but now i have to wait until the next chapter comes out, and i hate waiting. it's really a compelling story, and it's taken quite a different turn now, so i can't wait to see what happens next. eeee! (similar excitment i feel while waiting for next wednesday to see what happens on Lost!)

i want to write but it's not coming out. that is, i mean, i want to work on one of my stories. like finish editing Eien no Momento. or finally finish the rough draft of Ninsei story one. or get back to working on Animal Half. i think that each morning i should work some more on one of those and i don't. why doesn' it come out?

so i'm feeling a little bit nostalic, a little bit blue, but there are things i'm looking forward to coming up soon. (and that off-rhyme just flowed out of me).

i KNOW!!!! but fortunately, my continual existance without Cream Eggs does not need to be pondered anymore, because i was able to find some at Stewarts. YAY FOR STEWARTS!
