Hello Everybody

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

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.

    Hey Girl - I am so glad he is doing better. Finances will come together. I remember when my kitty had surgery and her tail fell off. I wish I had more money for all the testing but so happy I was able to afford what I could. Many years later she is still curled up on my lap ... and sometimes the lap top! I also have fallen off the SparkWagon. Trying to climb back on. Good luck to you. I am sure you can do it! I will be checking in on you as best I can.

    I'm glad to hear that your kitty is doing well! I've wondered about him from time to time since you haven't been blogging that much :X

    The red/black combo looks cool! I haven't played Mass Effect yet. I really enjoyed the Xbox Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic games, though, and they're the same company, so I've been meaning to try out Mass Effect.

    Have you played Dragon Age? It's more of a traditional RPG. It plays a lot like Baldur's Gate or Icewind Dale, but it also plays like a dating sim. lol You can have your love interests in that game, too. I had a LOT of fun going after the clueless virgin paladin dude. He's a hoot. Apparently, there's some sort of special dialog combination where you can convince the french lesbian and the rogue to get in a threesome with you, but I haven't bothered to go back and replay for that combo :P

    I haven't been on in a while, so I'm glad to hear that all went well with the kitty. I know you were heartbroken over the whole thing. Things like that can really derail you. But it sounds like you're in a better place. Hope 2013 goes well for you.
