Meh, I wish I could have slept in longer today. The weekend was alright though. Went to my aunt's wedding on Saturday which they had in one of her friend's backyard but it was still nice. I never got around to playing Darksiders like I wanted to but I did put quite a bit of time into Rainbow Moon. I have put about 25 hours into the game so far and am at level 35.
Alright I'll look at it. So sleepy though. I passed out 10:30 last night and am still tired. I got some Tales in this weekend though. I only have Malik left to get 100 titles. Only really less than 6 left to get.
So anyone watch the Olympic opening ceremonies? The wife and I did for a while because everyone kept saying how awesome the Chinese one was, and, well, gotta admit we were kinda bored. The James Bond with the Queen thing had me rapt, but then I'm a ridiculously rabid Bond fan. Also, I had serious lulz at the NHS cheerleading. I honestly found it epic black comedy considering how much of a basket case the NHS is.
Anyway, I finished ME2 yesterday and again, going against the grain on this. It was OK, though MUCH better than ME1. Still, unless I see ME3 for dirt cheap, I might not get it. And a story that is 90% "go get this team member" isn't the pinnacle of great story telling IMHO, though I did enjoy a couple of the plot points.
I'm through Chapter 1 of The Witcher...Geralt is sitting in the jail cell now waiting for me. I also finished Chapter 1 of Monkey Island...started 2. I thought about maybe starting Saints Row 3 or one of my strategy games that I got off Steam last week...not sure yet.
Yeah I went to the temple yesterday for my mother. Dad didn't wanna go, so I had to carry all the food offerings to the monks. I did get to see my cousin from Seattle though. He just came back from Hawaii to visit his mom in TX. He's a twin so I was like...is he? It was interesting bc he has a similar situation as me, aka gf of 7 years cheated on him. His was mucho worse though. Girl got pregnant with another's kid and all.
My problem is I keep getting addicted to the wrong games to catch up to you. I was playing Darksiders as well but I am fully addicted to Rainbow Moon now. I honestly want to go for the platinum but it will seriously take forever. There is a trophy for playing for 100 hours and another trophy for reaching level 500. To compare, I have played for 27 hours and am at level 35.
I haven't had to grind that much since I bought DLC but I have already used close to 30,000 of the 50,000 pearls and 40,000 of the 90,000 coins.
Finished Castlevania:LoS and Shadows of the Damned. LoS has confusing ending, SotD has awesome ending. Started InFamous 2, addicting so far. Went to this new sushi place for wife's bday and it was quite good, and happy hour prices is nice as well. There was a beach near by and we went after and gave/got her bday nookie as well :P Really tired today cause we stayed up late watching the olympics.
OH no we aren't nearby any Pardee. We gotta go into the city to get to one. It takes about 45 mins to get there. I had to wake up at 6 to get there by 8 bc we had to pick up my sister and my auntie. We were there til about 1:30. It was hot and there were way too many ppl. Is it weird I find my 2nd cousin from Seattle very cute? Is it a 2nd cousin if it's my mom's cousin's daughter?
He's doing well. It happened I think almost the same time as mine. He's taken the same stance as me on the whole relationships thing. We're gonna do our bachelor thing and not actively seek out love. If it comes at us, then cool.
watching women's weightlifting while i wait for the us women's volleyball game. there are actually a couple good looking ones...and by a couple, i do mean exactly 2. any sport called "snatch" has to be good, right?
Dang I missed women's lifting, was waiting to see that. After watching "Lifting King Kong" on Netflix, been wanting to see that event. I heard this korean dood set a world record though for lifting 3 times his bodyweight or something.
Ah, no wonder. That definitely sounds like a long day. Is it a Buddhist temple? Now that I think about it I only know of one around me and I am not sure if it's one where they actually have monks. It's just the size of a regular church.
Lol, if they aren't related by blood you are good.
Yeah its heartbreaking knowing how much time and effort they pour into their training and come up short at the end. But, it sounds like a lot of people (from other countries as well) stepped their game up after the Beijing olympics and are getting the gold this year so she just need to get back into it and come back stronger next time.
yar strasse...they need to rework the rules...maybe if you make the top 10, the only 2 per country rule doesn't apply.
Gyoza, she WAS strong...4th best (of 60), but because her teammates got 2nd and 3rd she gets screwed because of a dumb rule.
Rab, snatch is where they lift the barbell all the way above their head in one movement while crouched, then slowly straighten their legs....as opposed to clean and jerk where they lift it to the collar bone while standing, then in a second motion, thrust it above their heads.
Yeah they are haha... So it's a no go! But that's ok!
It's a Buddhist temple and it's on a pretty big set of land. My mom made me go since they had just brought in a statue that we donated money for from Thailand I think. They had quite a few monks from different countries. Oh and they had ipads and what not to record the proceedings for us.
