Tales of Xillia 2 CE

I unboxed it and damn, that figurine is awesome.

I started playing and I’m on the train. I’m gonna have a hard time deciding if I like playing Ludger better than Jude.

Oh, and Caitlyn remembered Jude from the first game and called him by name before he was introduced. Can’t get anything past Gamer Baby.

I broke my toe.

What can they do for a broken toe? Nothing. The nurse checked it out and one of the trainers taped it up.


My 2 Year Old is a Scam Artist With a Thirst for Reading.

A week ago, I got her out of her crib and noticed a book in there with her. I asked my husband if he had given her book when he had put her to bed. He said no.

Same thing happened the next night.

The following night, I put her down, and I made sure there wasn’t a book in her crib.

And wouldn’t you know it? In the morning, she had three books under her blanket.

So, we put a webcam in there to see what was going on, because I couldn’t figure out how she was getting out of the crib and then back in.

Turns out…she’s an engineer.

To get out of the crib, she piles her stuffed animals up, climbs up to the rail, and then slides down the front of the crib. She then pulls the stuffed animals through the slats of the crib.

After getting her book(s), she throws them over the rail of the crib. Then…she piles the stuffed animals back up, climbs on top of them, gets back in the crib. And, to cover her tracks, she pulls them all back through the slats.

It’s pure awesome to watch…and it’s probably time to turn the crib into a toddler bed. Though, I bet she will miss the challenge of getting to her books!

Kurt Vonnegut’s Rules for Short Stories
1. Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.

2. Give the reader at least one character he or she can root for.

3. Every character should want something, even if it is only a glass of water.

4. Every sentence must do one of two things–reveal character or advance the action.

5. Start as close to the end as possible.

6. Be a sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them–in order that the reader may see what they are made of.

7. Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia.

8. Give your readers as much information as possible as soon as possible. To heck with suspense. Readers should have such complete understanding of what is going on, where and why, that they could finish the story themselves, should cockroaches eat the last few pages.

A discussion on Plurk brought this one up. Uh, yes. I did kill off the entire cast of Graces. ;__;
