Social security took care of this lad...

Hey all. I haven't updated for a while, so I'll just give you a brief tour through my life of late...

I went to Egham last week to set up the Internet for my housemates. It doesn't work very well, though, so I may have to call in some of my friends to help me with it...

Elfen Lied Fight is totally great. It took me a while to figure it all out, since it's in Japanese, but I got there in the end. Nana has the best special move, where she fires her prosthetic arms and legs at the opponent, then head-butts them ^_^. That said, everyone has some pretty far out moves, like Mayu hitting people with her pet dog, and Nyu throwing various household objects around. Plus, everyone's really cute ^_^.

Just to change the tone of this entry somewhat, my Aunt (Dad's brother's ex-wife) is in hospital at the moment, and it's not at all clear if she's gonna make it or not. I haven't seen her for years, and in fact I can only recall meeting her twice, so I'm not torn up about this, but I do really feel sorry for my cousins. Who I've only met a handful of times anyway.

With any luck, I'll be taking a little trip to Cambridge on Saturday afternoon. Claire's working in the morning and wants meet to meet up with her to just hang out in the big town ;) We're planning on going to Borders, and I'm hoping to pay a visit to the Fudge Shop <3

Speaking of Claire, I installed Firefox for her today :) As part of the World Firefox Day thing, I sent her an invite to download the browser and get us listed on the Firefox Friends Wall ^_^.
Oh, and she's off work tomorrow + the parents are going out tomorrow = Wild teenage party!!! Tibia/Guild Wars/Music stuff.

Final note. Any of you German students (or, in fact, Germans) be interested in Oh! My Goddess OVAs 1 to 3 in German dub? I, uh, happen to, uh, have them....ehehe... If not, I'll delete them and free up a few hundred megs :)

That's all, I think.


Actually, P.S., I forgot to mention something! I introduced Claire to Haibane Renmei, and she really loves it! We've been watching one episode a day for the last few days, which is quite a bit for her ^_^. I've also accepted the bit task of editing down AMV Hells 1, 2, 3 and CE to make a Claire-friendly version of all of her favorite bits. Hehe...
