I have accomplished all of ONE of my goals for this vacation by finally beating Zelda! WOO AND HOO. AND ALSO OW HAND CRAMP OWWWW but wow so totally worth it. That was probably the first time I've really
gotten into a video game since... uhhh... Yoshi's Island, when I was about eight (although, pssht, I am still the undisputed GRAND MASTER of that game -- except, oh, my sister recently got the DS version which is about a jillion times harder, holy crap. I sat down and played for about thirty minutes and kept getting 99%s on everything, argh!) so it was like an entirely new experience in getting involved in storylines and characters and exploring and puzzle solving and, seriously, SO. MUCH. FUN. (Except of course for every part that had to be completed with Epona. Sorry, but the horse friggen sucks
and I was about to crush the remote with frustration during the mounted battle with Ganondorf, aaaaaarrrrgh! AHEM.) Of course my sense of accomplishment is inevitably coupled by sadness that it's all over -- but there are still plenty of things for me to go back and finish up (Cave of Ordeals! Totally kicked my ass around level forty or so the first time I played it! Poe Souls! I still need about fifteen more! Bugs! I'm missing the last six!). In conclusion, MIDNA IS THE COOLEST and I will most probably be replaying this game some time in the near future (either that or getting the virtual console version of Ocarina of Time because, yes, more video games are exactly what I need!).
In other news, Robert Picardo is awesome
AND IS GOING TO BE IN THE ATLANTIS MOVIES YES YES YES. Let's not talk about the part where the show is over after tonight. SOB.
other news, Psych returns! I'm so excited! And, seriously, I love that NBC shows all have great official websites and, in my greatly researched opinion, Psych's is far and away the best of the bunch. Words cannot contain my anticipatory glee over all of the teases in the advent calendar (okay, trying to keep it spoiler free here, but -- LASSSSSITER!!!!!!!! ...Interpret that as you will), and then I went through this morning and did all of their new quizzes. My knowledge of Psych guest stars is embarrassingly extensive, apparently. Also, Carlton and I are totally Meant To Be (I didn't even cheat! Honestly, I thought I was going to get Gus).
To wrap up... I was just watching some DS9 last night while working out so... here! Have some Kira being gorgeous
. Ohhh, would outer space even be half so fun without holosuites?
