First, I apologize to Jen for seemingly mocking your accent. I couldn't help it; when you bust it out the way you do, I can't help but imitate it, and it's not to insult you, I promise <3

Second, if you have Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, you should pick up My Pokemon Ranch for the Wii. At $10, it's a cute little storage system for your game(s) (though you cannot use it to quickly transfer Pokemon from one DS cart to another). Jen and I have been greatly amused by it, and I've had some fun trying to fill it up.

A long meme - stol'n from [livejournal.com profile] jennifer while I procrastinate think of how to best write what I need to write >_>

Not a fake cut, a meme cut )

If you HAD to get a piercing (not ears) what would you get? I dunno...tongue/lower lip? I don't know what's in for guys these days.

Ok.

So Jen and I decided to try our hand at some new things yesterday for dinner. You can check out each one by following the appropriate LJ cut:

Me: "Ok, so Book 3, Volume 3 - which contains episodes that have yet to air in the US - comes out May 6. TIME TO GET ON THE BALL."

[livejournal.com profile] jennifer: "Yeah, Nintendo, come..."

Both: "..." *laugh*

First off, have some codes:

Wii: 8759 3422 0858 5579
Super Smash Bros Brawl: 4253 3152 9910

Also bring it. The game is awesome so far; we're going through the Adventure mode slowly but surely, and now taking a break for foodz.

Also, Jen cracked. Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney is waiting patiently in her bag, ready to be played during the rare moments that SSBB is not.

Rydia:

When you come into our room and 1. start rubbing/biting at the lamp/lamp table, 2. start meowing at the basement/back stairwell door, and/or 3. start scratching at whatever surface you can find for that purpose, it wakes me up, and seeing as I don't get my full night's sleep, it makes me cranky and mad at you. I tell you to stop with increasing irritation and, unfortunately, an increasing loudness in my voice, which wakes Jen up and gets her cranky and upset, too.

So please, for both of us, could you keep it down? You won't die if you don't eat immediately at 6 AM. Thanks.

I just helped my wife do something she's never done before: beat The Legend of Zelda for the NES.

w00t!

I consider myself moderate; those that know me intimately can attest to it, and those that don't know it just have not heard me discuss politics. That's fine, I don't get into them much, because it usually leads to shouting matches which I detest.

HOWEVER.

I really.

Really.

REALLY loathe Mr. Bush right now. Mr. "I know what's good for this country better than the American people." Mr. "Let's drill Alaska and fuck up our oil reserves." Mr. "Let's send more boys to die in a pointless civil war, using up not only American tax dollars, but stripping away funding from 'less important' things like conservation, sex education programs, and oh, that silly little thing called science."

So thanks, Mr. Bush. Your decision to remove funds from things that matter, and pump them into your oil expansion war, have cost my wife the chance to work her dream job. Your decision also impacts everyone else in that lab, as it seems a number of positions there might be threatened. Your decision has made it harder for people to get Postdocs and secure positions in academia because the money just isn't there, and so the competition to get the scraps that the NIH and NSF has left is fiercer than ever before.

Can someone tell me again why he was re-elected a few years back? Even as a Christian he offends me, and I just can't see why anyone but his mother would have picked him for this position.
