A bit random

As it turned out, we stayed home for Easter. I don't know what they're reasoning was, but it was what we said we wanted. To be honest, I was a little disappointed. I really think it's more that I'm starved for human contact than anything else. I get the feeling the general reaction will be less of the, "Wow, you really are gluttons for punishment," and more of the, "Well, obviously. They're family. You're supposed to be with your family for the holidays." Oh well.

We talked about it and determined once again that going over there is very often a very bad idea, so we felt better. Then we didn't know what to do with ourselves, because, since it was Easter, we thought we might want to do something Easter-related, and not just stick to our usual Sunday routine. But then we couldn't think of anything. We had been thinking about watching A Bug's Life or The Lion King for a while, and either of them would have been pretty appropriate, we felt, because The Lion King has all sorts of gospel messages, and reading Exodus recently reminded me of A Bug's Life. But we felt like watching something low-tension, so we watched Winnie the Pooh instead.

Later Mom called about taxes, and that was so depressing I almost wanted to insist on playing Kingdom Hearts, but I thought better of it, and we played Final Fantasy X instead. That probably doesn't sound like a very good or different alternative, and it might not even make sense why it would be bad to play Kingdom Hearts, but it makes sense to us, and that's really what matters.

And the more I type, the wider this window gets. This is very confusing, and a little annoying, since the window is now quite a bit wider than our desktop.

We have become addicted to Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni. It's still very scary, but in a way that really makes you want to know why. It's especially scary when you think that the one girl is played by the voice of Yuuna from Kage Kara Mamoru, and she's using the exact same voice. But I guess that would only make it scary to us and pudges. Unless someone else is watching Kage Kara Mamoru.

Today I'm thankful for non-plastic Easter grass, miniature Cadbury Creme Eggs, the Kingdom Hearts soundtrack, miniature tootsie roll pops, and warm clothes (it's pretty cold for April).
