broken heart, sad, heart

I should be studying, but I'm not. Big surprise.

I updated my other journal again. More babbling about Sean, of course. That seems to be pretty much what that journal's for.

In other news, I've been playing way too much Legend of Mana recently. I bought it for my dad for Father's Day, and we've both been playing it ever since. It's the first game we've both gotten really into in a while. We lost interest in King's Quest at some point during King's Quest VI (which we eventually finished, however) and never bothered to play VII or VIII. We played Myst together, but we never got that into Riven for some reason. So anyway, for the past few months we've been picking away at Legend of Mana. It's the best game I've played in a really long time. I wonder what the original Japanese version was like, though. I have no faith in translations anymore. I suppose I should seek out fan sites, I suppose, but I don't want any spoilers. I want to figure out the game just with dad. I think dad kind of cringed when I bought him a video game with anime-looking (pretty much) people on it for Father's Day (seeing as I'm a big anime geek and he's been ignoring it) but I think he's really enjoying the game. It's easy enough that we don't get frustrated (he doesn't have much patience in games when he feels like he isn't making progress all the time. This is part of why it takes us forever to beat games. He hates wandering around and making sure he didn't miss anything. This is also why we lose interest in games.) but it's interesting enough that we care what happens next.

I also like Lil'Cactus's diary about the Lillipeas a whole bunch.

"I wonder how lillipeas sing songs about peas
Peas, peas,
I'm a teany-beany pea
Peas, peas,
I'm an itsy-bisty pea
This could be a never ending song"

It's stupid, but I go around singing that song about peas a lot now, much to my dad's annoyance. Hee hee hee. I don't know why that amuses me so much. I think it's the "this could be a never ending song" part. I should probably get out more.

I should be studying for calculus right now, seeing as I have a test tomorrow. However, I can't bring myself to give a damn. This is probably Not Good. We'll see. Anyway, my left wrist has been hurting for no reason that I can discern, so I'm going to go do something that doesn't require a functional left wrist for a while.
