What's more, almost entirely due to this new and improved laptop, I have a couple new games to play, one of which has pretty much my full devotion for now: Darksiders. It was shown in one of the videos I was watching on Youtube to get an idea of how the integrated graphics in another laptop I was looking at would perform, and although I didn't buy that laptop, I still looked around for the game, and it's pretty good. I recall the movie describing it as a "really epic Legend of Zelda", which it does overall feel like thus far. Pretty fun, and then there are a couple other games as well, one of which is Skyrim, because Xion recommended I get it before (specifically, he said that I would "love [him] for it"), but I've not gone past the first couple minutes yet. Eventually though, and then I'll sink many hours into exploring various caves and dungeons, just as I did with Oblivion. Considering my three days off coming up, it's good to have something specific in mind (even more with the release of Theatrhythm on Tuesday, and possible delivery of my PSP memory sticks), but I still don't want to be so confident as to say that's enough to go on. What I really ought to do when I get home tonight is back things up as per usual for the beginning of the month, but really can't until my 16GB USB stick arrives, so it's a matter of not being able to do what I should, but as a result of that, being able to do something enjoyable, but much less important. Oh, dilemna. I should at least put some effort into cleaning up my desktop though, so maybe that will come before watching Homeward Bound.
As for other odds and ends, I let Tom borrow some money last night. Only $40, which I was unwilling to part with at first, but figure is alright for the moment. He made it clear I would be paid back when we next get paid, so if he doesn't, this will have been the first and last time he borrows money, and if he does, I might not lend any more to anybody until I get home from Toronto. As I told Manoah, I have no personal reasons not to, so we'll just see. On a related note though, I'm starting to think about Christmas this year, and am really strongly considering that maybe, instead of trying to think of what everybody would like, I should just bluntly ask them. Request a list of one or two reasonably-priced items, being sure to make it clear that they mustn't ask anybody else for those same things, lest they get two or more, and go on that. If only it wasn't the easy way out... At any rate though, I need to be off to work soon, which I'm hoping will go by more quickly than either of the past two nights. It should, because it's a Sunday, but people will likely want food following Canada Day celebrations, so it might get busy then. I'll just stop worrying now, and take whatever comes, I suppose~
