1294 Perfect Strangers.


The backstory of Alex and Jo has only ever been implied. Why would Alex, who is independently wealthy as far as we can tell, nee a roommate at all? How did she find Jo? How long have they lived together? These questions will be answered eventually. Some of them you might be able to guess. Jo tends to seek out people she can cling to. There’s probably a story behind that too. I like these two. I only wish I could tell their story faster. XD

Hyrule Warriors came out recently. I’d like to get it at some point, but I just can’t convince myself to spend the money this close to Smash Brothers for the 3DS. I’ve always disliked the tendency of companies to bunch all of their new releases too close together. I’m sure there must be a reason for it, but it really seems like things would work better if they staggered things a little. My suspicion is that they try to have them all ready just before xmas. Since I don’t play by xmas rules it just irritates me. Particularly in light of the preorder bonuses and whatnot. All that aside I know I’ll actually play Smash Bros on the 3DS because I can take it places and I can turn it on while the comic saves, or whatever. Sitting down to play a game gets harder and harder to justify the more commitments a person takes on. I’m still playing Animal Crossing, which is why I haven’t bought Tomodachi Life, (That and the price…) because I don’t feel like I have time to manage another island of virtual beings. I did get a chance to demo Hyrule Warriors, and it’s pretty much what you expect of a Dynasty Warriors game, except better looking, in my opinion. I got the second One Piece version of Dynasty Warriors on sale and they play, essentially, identically. I suspect that it will get repetitive after a while.

I keep a fan running in my room almost constantly because it’s the hottest room in the house. It has the worst ventilation and I keep a computer running in it almost all the time. Even when I leave I keep the fan going so that it doesn’t have to struggle to cool the room down when I return. The other morning the fan just fell apart. I’ve never seen anything like it. The whole blade section just came undone out of nowhere. I guess the constant shaking slowly undid all the screws and they all failed at the same moment. I can’t even begin to guess at what the odds of that are. Once I put everything back on the fan was fine again. It would have been a real disaster if the cage part hadn’t kept everything in one place. Otherwise the blades might have just whipped off at random and done who knows what kind of damage to something. The fact that it happened while I was listening to a spooky podcast didn’t help matters either.
