Tis the season...

It's a mere six days until Christmas...and I'm not as excited as I thought I'd be. It's my favorite holiday and season of the year after all.

There could be factors contributing to this. One of which is boredom. I haven't had a working computer since the first week of November. I'm pretty sure the on-board graphics died, so the monitor displays nothing when I turn the computer on. Everything else works as I hear the start up music when windows starts. There are occasional instances when the monitor flashes a garbled and glitchy mess that seems to wave in a z pattern down the screen before going black again. I can't do anything about it now since I'm poor.

So, to pass my free time I've been playing games; mainly Soul Calibur IV. And I recently played through Star Ocean IV again after having not played it for 2-3 years. I remember that I just completed a universe playthrough and was working that file so I could get the 100% quests complete and 100% IC items made achievements before stopping. I completed a new galaxy playthrough to familiarize myself with the game again. Once I did, I loaded up my universe playthrough and got to work. First order of this was making ultimate equipment to face the Ethereal Queen. Once that was done, I made item preparations for a long trek in the Wandering Dungeon that would have me defeat the E. Q. five times in row since I need five of her feathers for IC. I accomplished this just two days ago, and it took me just over eight hours...Never again! Now, I'm farming magical clays so I could duplicate any items I need for IC. Then after that farm more magical clay to duplicate items I can't make in IC for shop order quests. That's it for that at the moment.

Another factor is I've been summoned as a grand juror for the January term. Does that mean I'm going to be in an actual jury in an actual trial--multiple times? If it does, then I am officially freaking out. I don't know if I can handle the decision of giving the parties involved their ultimate fate. Gah!

I think that's all I can say at the moment. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

P.S. I'm typing this through my wii, so this took a while. Like I said earlier, my computer starts up fine except for the whole display thing. Thank God, the internet automatically signs in.

Till next time.
