HA Senidal's Journal

Went to Best Buy to buy a new laptop. Was going to buy the 17-inch screen HP Envy or a cheaper HP laptop with the Intel Core i5, but I ended up buying the HP Spectre. Also bought a portable CD-DVD drive and a backup drive along with the second Digimon Adventure tri film, Colossal, and the Ultimate Avengers films DVD. This is the most money I've spent, but the Spectre's working out so far, although I still need to get used to it. The touch screen and stylus are a nice touch. Too bad I lost the two diet supplement pills I brought with me along with some Pokecoins due to my hip accessing the shop while my phone was in my pocket. Dang it, now I have to earn more coins. Rest of the day was quiet. Lunch was Jack in the Box to go. ad me a chicken club, side salad, and a taco. Go me. Checked my e-mail and found a comment about my last SH fic asking for Molly to be added and to have her comeuppance.
Need to write and draw, I do.

I went to the hangout today. I didn't play, but I scavenged some YGO cards and bought some silver card sleeves and a few M:TG cards. I also worked on the test kit for my game. Just need two more E3s to complete the monster line up. Next are the test personae and the rules. Yay for progress. I also bought more raisins. The containers kept falling out of the bag as I was walking home. I made it eventually. I made a detour at Rite Aid, where I bought the only mini-pony set there. Go me. I ordered pizza and boneless chicken wings for dinner. A couple of slices will be tomorrow's lunch. I hope everyone else enjoys the rest.

10:43PM - Just reviewing
Another day at work. Amazed I reviewed my stuff. Still need help. Had taco salad for lunch. Delish. Mmmmm...carne asada. Went home after my shift. Mom made fried chicken. Just rested.

11:57PM - Feels like routine
Slept in a little. Ate brunch with everyone. Caught up on shows via Hulu. SVU, why you so mean sometimes? Went with parents to Mass and grocery shopping afterwards. Had fried chicken for dinner. Yummy.

Stayed at home. Just relaxed. Should've done more, but hey, day off. Yay for day off. Yay.
Watched Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart. It's one of the DVDs I bought for myself while I was Christmas shopping. Took a while since I let shiny stuff distract me, but I finished it. Dang, ending. Just...dang.
Worked on a YGO deck. Still needs to be tested in battle.

11:55PM - Oh look, more skywater
More work along with overtime today, although this time I felt I made some progress, especially after checking with my lead worker. Unit meeting ended with Secret Santa. I hope the gift of three Disney Tsum Tsums pleased my recipient. I got a $10 Target gift card and a sleigh made up of wrapped chocolates and candy canes. The Santa was also a wrapped chocolate. Cool. Potluck was nice. Loved the dirty rice and mac and cheese. Chinese chicken salad was also nummy. Mom and my youngest brother put up the Christmas lights while I was out. Next is the tree. Yay.
Gah, got distracted. Need to wrap up these orders for delivery on Thursday. I always somehow complete these orders. Didn't expect a lot of them, though. Oh, double order times...
Yay for new LEGO sets to use as building elements. All three orders arrived today. Talk about excellent timing.

11:54PM - Must not panic
Came home from work tired and worried. Time to sort out the bad and good.
Bad: Felt like I didn't do enough work.
Good: The woman seems willing to hang out with me outside of work if she had a way to meet up with me. I finished my latest order.
So yeah, hope no yelling tomorrow.

11:30PM - Then the skywater came
It rained. Yep, we finally got rain. It didn't last for the whole day, but it was nice to not have a dry day. We'll be needing more skywater, though. Think of the crops. Among other things. Oh yeah, and the people. Can't forget that.
Ate and her family left for home. My workday was typical. Processing was done. Things were learned. Numbers are still dancing in my head. Blasted system isn't stable yet.

Tried out the new deck. Managed to win a duel. Further upgrades and testing are needed. Bought a couple of cards and scavenged a few more. Returned home during halftime. Disappointed at the loss. After being ticked off, I realized the following:
1. I cannot control how a football game goes. Mistakes were made, and there had to be a winner and a loser. Such is the nature of competition.
2. I cannot bear grudges against athletes who do their best at their job to win.
3. My team had a good run, and I should be proud of them.
4. I no longer have to stress about the progress of my team.
5. I can watch the Super Bowl--if I choose to--without giving a frak about who'll win.
6. Although the Broncos may have my vote after what Sherman said. Seriously, was he hopped up on testosterone when he was interviewed? Dude, you won. We get it. I hope his remarks don't result in bad karma for the Seahawks.
7. Where the frak did I get this hatred of losing?
Oh well, back to things I can control.

1. Pay off any federal and state taxes I owe from getting such a sum.
2. Pay off my student loans.
3. Put some of it in a savings account and the rest in my checking account.
4. Be more generous in donations to church and charity.
5. Buy what I like, such as books, DVDs, video games, Yu-Gi-Oh! cards, and LEGOs.

11:21PM - Writer's Block: I'm the Boss
Why, take over my immediate surroundings, of course, and if I feel like it, progress to bigger targets. Start with the city I'm living in, then the county, then the state, then the country...you know where this is going. I'd also use them for an idea that's been cooking in my head for a while. Plus, I'd follow the Evil Overlord's List and be a benevolent boss.

1:18AM - Gotta love tacos
We had tacos for dinner, with tostadas and tortillas as our choices to put the meat, cheese, and veggies in. Good food.
I did some cooking earlier when I refried the pot roast and added white gravy. I guess you could call it chipped beef, although the meat's tender. As of now, all my laundry's been done, although I have no idea where that pair of black undies went. How odd.
I should find Megaman artbooks for drawing references. I like the art styles from the various games. Also nice: Owning all the games.
Hmmm...laptop now warns me to plug it in at 10% remaining battery power instead of 5%. Interesting.

After the British got to see it, I watched the second part of The End of Time, a.k.a. David Tennant's last appearance as the Doctor. Dang. That's all I've got to say. And those farewell scenes to all his companions...dang. What a way to end a stint. Thank goodness Tennant stuck around for so long--he was a goofy, brilliant, and lonely Doctor. Here's to hoping Matt Smith will do well as the next Doctor.
On another note, this Demons series looks good so far.
12:41PM - Power Rangers Remastered
I remember when the old Transformers cartoon were reaired under the name "Generation 2" and had a floating CG cube that handled scene changes by opening to the next scene. I found that damn cube annoying since the sound it makes while changing scenes covered any dialogue being said by the characters. Also, the cube wasn't really necessary and was just there to make the episodes look new. It was like "Hey, let's make this old stuff look nice by throwing in something shiny," and then adding something that wasn't needed to being with.
This is my reaction to the "new" version of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Since we're getting no more new seasons of PR, ABC Kids is airing MMPR reruns, but with additions like a new logo and effects that fit in with Pop-up Video and give the show a comic book feel (anyone for campy Batman-style fighting words?). Didn't work for me. Sure, some of the added effects worked--the opening was all right, the miniaturized Japanese shuttle that became a time warp device did need something to make it stand out, and the captioning of the Zords worked the first time--but all I wanted was my campy PR goodness. I don't need shiny things as I pondered why Goldar would run away from the Megazord when it got its Power Sword when Goldar was the one who was winning the fight. I expected digital touchup only, and I didn't see the point of adding effects other than appealing to a new generation. It could've been done without changing the logo. At least they kept the original music.
On a somber note, it was nice seeing Trini and Ernie on screen.

1:01AM - Mmmmm...chicken katsu
Since we slept in, we went to noon Mass. Lunch was at a Japanese restaurant, where I devoured most of my bento box. Chicken katsu good. Also ate most of my tempura. Some grocery shopping later--I stayed in the car with the wee one--we returned home, where I watched the wee one while his mommy went to work. Thank goodness for LEGOs. Wee one wanted to stay up late so her could see his daddy. Awww...

*Looks around, then shrugs* Meh. *Waddles off*
