So at this moment, my mother and step-father are in Alaska on a cruise. As a part of this trip, my mom is making a special pilgrimage to Juneau, which will be the last of the 50 state capitals she’s visited in her life, and the only one that my father never made it to.

My brother just made an offer on a house. I’m so proud.

As for myself, life continues on. As is the recent tradition, it’s been six months so it’s time for me to have another boss. I’m still doing the same job as the last year and a half, but now they did a little re-org.

I finally rectified a shortcoming in my life and I purchased Okami for the Wii. I’m probably about 2/3rds of the way through if my item list is any indication and it’s everything people have said it was. I also picked up (i.e. downloaded via Steam) the Secret of Monkey Island remake. As I’m getting further in, things are seeming less and less familiar, I either played it once through way back when and replayed only the first bit, or I never finished it at all. Admitting this possibility probably loses me some nerd points.

The summer game drought is still going strong for me, with Shadow Complex coming out tomorrow and then an explosion in September. Hopefully I can finish Okami and Dragon Warrior V DS soon, and I’d like to finish my second playthrough of FF12 as well, seeing as how I bought a PS2 slim pretty much for the purpose of playing it again. (Although my library of PS2 games is full of reasons).

The WoW expansion news is starting to get exciting — I bought the DirecTV PPV to watch Blizzcon. I just hope that it doesn’t come out anywhere near FFXIV, because that would be a strain on my free time….

I’m stalled on Okami – you will have to demonstrate your mad skills for me.

Every six months, really? Wow. @.o

Ever since I became full time again. I had one boss for about three weeks, another for a few months, was on loan for another few months (even though I still technically reported to the previous boss), went to the group I was on loan to permanently, but by that time a new person had been brought in to manage them, then just recently the reorg gave me a new manager when they grouped the engineers by function instead of by sub-project.

… Wow. That’s incredible. O.o

Well, at least you’re still there. Do you ever want to be a manager, out of curiosity?

You have nerd points to spare.

I will make mental note to avoid cameras at Blizzcon

If you care, I’ll be going to BlizzCon with Yuko and I’ll be twittering from it on my phone.
