Video games! I just bought a bundle package of Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2 and I've been practicing shootin' me some zombies. I've never played a first person shooter before so that's taking some getting used to, and I die a lot, but it's a fun game. Very loud, lots of guns. I've also gotten back into The Sims 2 after a long time of not playing it. Stuff I'm looking forward to are Dragon Age 2 and the Nintendo 3DS (shinyyyy) with the 3D reboot of Ocarina of Time.

Speaking of gaming, fiiiinaly the weeks of papers and big assignments are over with. I am gonna sleep and play video games so much this weekend.

So, things happened this past weekend. As I said before there was my grandmother's 80th birthday party. I did end up with a handful of people asking about my post-grad plans, but not as many as I'd expected. I think there were about 200 people at the party so there was too much going on for conversation, and I mostly ended up talking to the people at my table. And damn, seeing, greeting, and chatting with all those people in one place was intense. I swear I don't know who half my cousins are. So many of them are 15+ years younger than me or live far away or both, so I see them and I'm like "Oh, we're related? How 'bout that." But there was cake, and it was fun seeing all the little kids running around on the lawn next to banquet hall. I remember when running around with other kids was the height of fun... *nostalgic sigh*

And my dad got remarried on Sunday. It was a private ceremony, just them and two witnesses, so I wasn't there. They went up to the Adirondacks and got married on an island in the middle of a lake, and now they're honeymooning in Cuba for two weeks. I'm at my dad's house now to house/cat/turtle sit while they're away. And when they get back there's gonna be a big reception, which means I'll have to figure out a wedding present. And find me some wedding-going clothes. Hurm.

Dealing with PayPal is like pulling teeth. They made make me jump through flaming barbed wire hoops just to just to get a password reminder, then in the end I couldn't recover my password because they want me to enter credit card info as a security measure, but the one they have on file is the old expired one that's been trashed for months. So with that account apparently inaccessible I created a new one, which I don't like doing because I don't like the dangling threads of abandoned accounts, and now I have to wait two days for them to verify my bank account. And I just wanted to buy stuff of Ebay. >:(

I bought Dragon Age: Origins with my not-lost-forever giftcards, and it's great so far, but three hours into the game I'm stuck in a spot where I keep dying. It's getting frustrating, being killed a dozen times in a row.

BUT I HAVE A PAID ACCOUNT NOW YAY so I will soothe my frustration by going off to find more icons for my lovely new icon space.
