Birthday Cake

Birthday Cake




May 29th, 2009     

I mentioned in the last episode of JPB Radio that my birthday is tomorrow. The challenge will be finding birthday cake. I’m going to Universal Studios Japan tomorrow despite the whole Shingata Influenza (aka Swine Flu) outbreak in that region. Honestly though, it really has died down quite a bit and I think I’ll be [...]

May 19th, 2009     

I have two laptops. Taiyaki and ChocoboBob. Taiyaki is a dying XP machine which takes years to boot up. ChocoboBob is a new Vista machine which is currently BOSD’ing randomly. It is now to the point where I can’t even boot up in Safe Mode. I’m pretty sure the issue lies with the memory but [...]

I heard somebody got their CD today. Maybe my statue will reach its destination soon too. /anxious I saw the statue before at TGS (I think it was at TGS…) and again at VanaFest. It’s pretty impressive. And as Fusion mentioned to me again tonight, another thing that I can rub in his face when [...]

I won a statue… and other personal updates

I won a statue… and other personal updates




May 10th, 2009     

I haven’t done a regular personal update in awhile. Because of Golden Week and things, I actually haven’t played a lot. Also, most of the weekly events were suspended during Golden Week because people are out and about, traveling, etc. At some point SAM became 42 so I updated the sidebar. I went and did [...]

Lying for Parties and Profit?




May 5th, 2009     

A few things got me thinking about this subject and so I wonder how other people feel about it. Maybe I’ll end up in the minority. The problem: JP Only people or just trouble in general with getting invites from Japanese players.

Personal Update and Weekly Goals




April 27th, 2009     

An exciting and frustrating week. At the end of the week, a lot of times I feel like I didn’t get anything done but once I sit down and type it all out, I feel like I’ve made a little progress. Blogging is good for online gamers! Or at least keeping a record. CESA said [...]
