My roommate and I missed the cutoff date for our internet bill last month, and I woke up yesterday morning to find myself facing a connection that was very much deceased. We paid the cumulative bill that arrived the day before, but it may be up to a week before service is restored. Terrible timing, Comiket considered; I swore this wouldn’t happen again after September’s debacle, and here I am eating my words. From now on I’ll handle the bill myself instead of leaving it to my short term memory-challenged cohabitant.

Saturday’s Akiba excursion was quite fruitful, resulting in the acqusition of the C69 CD-ROM catalog along with a few new games and volumes of manga. I told myself I wouldn’t buy any doujinshi (given the proximity of Comiket) but Bolze + Kamichu proved irresistable. ;;

My plans for the usual update thwarted, I spent yesterday cleaning my room and marathoning King Gainer instead. Both activities were long overdo; I’ve had Xiarobo’s DVDs sitting on my shelf gathering dust for several months now. As expected, it was a great show – it goes off the deep end a bit in the final episodes, but the characters are so solid they could spend the show playing poker or doing homework and it would be worth watching. Lacking access to usual news sources for the time being I’ll probably write up a more detailed Gainer review in the next day or so.

I’ll have internet access at work through the 22nd, so if you need to get ahold of me between now and then drop a comment here or in the forums (email works too) and I’ll get back to you. Daily updates will otherwise be on hiatus until I’m reconnected at home, which if the stars align will be quite soon. Maybe I can get some garage kit work done in the interim…
