It's been a while since I really blogged. So I have 30 minutes to kill, here we go.
The last quarter of 2012 was not good for me on many fronts. Mostly my kitty Saxy and the financial nightmare of his care. And my complete loss of control of my eating and the eventual fade out of my fitness routines. It often felt like I was fighting against a raging waterfall. Niagara comes to mind. I have been so defeated and frustrated and tired.
My BF has hooked me into the Mass Effect Universe, finally. He's been on me for a while to play the series. He loves his Shepard. He cried. He's a little annoyed with me. My Shepard is MINE. I haven't been all gushing about the game and talking his ear off about it. I find the love interest part of the game interesting, but eh, especially in the first one. Though, the comments made, especially by the male human love interests, and the horrible face animation make me LMAO. Sorry, so far Kaiden and Jacob are nice eye candy, but they wouldn't interest me in any way beyond that. Turns out I really go for personality and spirit, I love Thane. I know he dies in the 3rd one. I despise Bioware for this reason.
As for the actual game play, I SUCK at shooters. Half the time my squad takes out most of the enemies. I do love the sniper rifles. But I am terrible at aiming, please give me my RPG lock on back. The story is interesting, but in truth I an more attached to Thane than my own character. A little sad on my part. I may try and cosplay Kasumi, if I can get the money together to commission the outfit. She's a DLC character, but I really like her. I want the red variant of her outfit.
This is a concept art thing I found. The Red and black is the one I like. I've never seen the other line of alternates.
Saxy is doing great 2 months after surgery. Got the results of his kidney function tests yesterday. There are on the high side of normal, but he only has one good kidney, so the vet says that is good. He runs and hops along and is the sweet little love bug he's always been. He's a great cat.
Now should I brag about my awesome diamond earrings I got for christmas. I've always wanted a good pair of diamond studs. And my sweetie pie got them for me. He shouldn't have since he is 8 months out and still hasn't found a new job, but he's not getting them back.
I could go one for awhile longer, but I need to go do some actually work. I hope you all are well and happy.
