Surrounded by kitties

Still no package today. Sigh. But we did find out that we have new downstairs neighbors. This might be a bad thing, because if they leave people at home during the day, we won't have a chance to practice DDR, which is only a bad thing because now that Mom and Steve seem to have developed an obsession for it, we want to keep up our skills. But the fad might not last, so I guess we'll just see.

In other news, we're liking Revenant Wings a lot. Athena says it's basically that one mini-game in Final Fantasy VII where you're helping protect the endangered birds, only with better animation and a story. There's also fancier spells and stuff, of course. So far Balthier's not in it much, but there is a sexy new character with wings, so hopefully that will make up for the lack of Balthier.

Oh yeah, I keep meaning to talk about Saiyuki Gaiden 3 a little. We finally finished it on Monday, and man is that thing nerve-wracking. You know it's going to end badly, so anyone could die at any time, except for Goku, so whenever somebody does something that could get them killed, there's never the, "Oh, they won't die. They're the main character." factor. And Goku somehow seems to find himself in less danger, so it's not much help. We seem to remember reading in a blog entry of Kazuya Minekura's that the series was supposed to be three volumes long, but obviously that's not the case. More recently she said she's finally figured out how to get it where it needs to go, though, so... I guess we'll see what happens with it.

And in the meantime, we are surrounded by kitties. Oreo seems to have decided that our laps aren't too scrawny for him after all, and has been sitting on me just about all day. Fortunately, today he's letting me type. And Mimsy is standing next to the keyboard staring in the direction of one of the computer speakers. It's difficult to tell if she wants attention or if she just likes standing there, but it is adorable.

And one of these days we need to figure out how to use Bandai Channel, but currently we're too distracted by video games. Oh well.

Today I'm thankful for related ads, Revenant Wings, chibi Goku, Scrubs bonus features, and being surrounded by kitties.
