Where’s my Prosium

It’s cold here in Glasgow.  I don’t think I can quite put enough emphasis on this part, I’m sitting here in my PJ’s feet swing over the radiator to get some damn warmth.  And with that there’s the realisation that it is definitely winter and ‘ is fast approaching.  Which is crazy, it seems like only yesterday I was graduating and then running around like a madman trying to get on a post-grad course.  That’s not even including the fact that I appeared to have lost about 2 months somewhere trying get coursework done.  Argh!

Time travel, I've done it

But things are good, for the first time in 5 years I’m no longer regretting going to uni.  Having to go and learn about something you cared absolutely nothing for is something that starts to grate on the soul and I honestly believe that if it hadn’t been for the friends I had made on the course and the now-like-family people at Cali-Otaku I don’t think I even would still be in Glasgow right now, let alone Uni.  But as I said things are going well, my first grade is in at a respectable 62%.  At masters level that’s quite an accomplishment, especially given my mental age – this was the guy who just two weeks ago was at a con bawling out the Pokémon theme – but the more impressive thing was that if I hadn’t geeked out on the fundamentals of gaming in this essay I would have been in the high 70%s.  WHA!  That’s nuts!

Apart from that I got an interesting credit card bill through from Auchi… even though its over it still comes back to haunt me. HA!  So it looks like I’m going to have to be pretty creative when it comes to Christmas gifts this year.

WHA!? Auchi Strikes again

Other than that I’ve finally had some time to play some damn games.  Hazzuh!  Gears of War 2, Banjo-Kazooie: nuts and Bolts, Rock Band 2 as well as a little of Mirrors Edge, Dead Space and Fable 2 of which I’ll write detailed impressions of when I can get a good session going.  All I’ll say at the moment is that Rock Band 2 is better than the first, same with Gears and Banjo is probably the most suprising out of the list.

Podcast wise I should apologise for the delay in a new one.  We would have actually had one recorded and posted over the week but due to crazy drunken shenanigans by my sister it had to be abandoned and there hasn’t been a time/date set for the next one.  I, however, guarantee that there will be one this week.  For we have much to discuss.

Other than that there’s not much to comment on other than I’m still enamoured with a certain Tokyo Mew Mew.  See!  There’s that Auchi again!

Ugh… when did this get all emotionally gushy.  Where’s my prosium!?

Next time
