First, because the all of two Academy kids reading this are probably wondering where the hell I was Friday - apparently I utterly fail at life, and either my alarm clock didn't go off, or I slept right through it until it turned itself off, and by the time I awoke, it was half-way through Microbio. So with the only class left being the one I hate, I just didn't bother coming in at all.
Instead, I have been sitting around re-igniting my on-again, off-again love affair with Harry Potter, or, more accurately, one Remus John Lupin. Because he's really my main draw in the series, and I think that probably deserves a post all to itself, about me, and him, and brown, and all sorts of weird introspective things. It's sort of a cyclic thing - looking at my old entries, my last bout of HP-fannishness was actually about a year ago.
In between the HP-stuff, I have also been playing lots of RE4, mostly because I have just under two weeks before I get it back, and I didn't want to work on my paper for history (still don't, which is why I'm writing this. Gonna be up late tomorrow, probably). Main complaints about the PS2 version - the sound quality is poor, and the load times are terrible, particularly as the GC version had basically none. There's some weirdness with item rarity, too. Stuff that was really common to pick up in the GC version, like handgun ammo, is now a lot harder to find, but certain things that were really rare show up more commonly, like magnum ammo. More positive feelings will probably come when I get to all the shiny extras, probably later this week - I'm right before the Krauser boss fight right now.
An aside, the above two things (HP and RE4) lead to really strange dreams, in which Skuld is an evil sorcercess and I'm trying to keep these stone tablet-things away from her, and there is a great deal of nice landscaping and big old stone buildings, and possibly a pond with alligators in it. And I totally haven't wrapped my brain around only having two days of classes left in high school. But I have decided where I'm going next year - UBC.
