Morning Discussion

By Chris Faylor, Oct 08, 2008 6:43am PDT Hello there, and welcome to Wednesday.

Back on Monday, I talked about how awesome the first few episodes of Californication were. Too bad the show lost its edge as it progressed. All that fun, whimsical drama and clever, crude writing has been toned down. As of the latest episode, it's basically a regular drama about a guy struggling to keep his family close. Boo.

On the upside, I managed to put some time into the DS version of Disgaea. Yup, the strategy-RPG still has that time-sucking charm of its PlayStation 2 big brother. The dual screen setup ensures you know everything about your foes, such as location and stats, and the touch screen controls work quite well. Just make sure to zoom out.

Oh, and Indiana? Still dreary, now with added dampness.

  • Life throws you some weird curveballs sometimes.

    The Good: I got a promotion at work. More moneys and better responsibilities.

    The Bad: I now have to work Friday AND Saturday nights (sorry Mindmann) so I'll have to miss the shackmeet.

    The Ugly: A woman I work with, who started at the same time as me, and is ~15 years older than me was not given a promotion. So instead of just accepting it and moving on, she now tries to do my job for me every time we have a customer, which makes my job significantly more difficult. Especially since i have to remind her that she has other things she should be doing every single time.
