Been a long time

Ok. I am not dead yet. Since selling the old house and moving into the new house, I guess I had forgotten the number of hours necessary in keeping a house up. So, when we moved in there was the incomplete room. I was able to get it mudded and sanded although not as perfect and also got it painted. This saturday, I will pick up a mitre saw so that I can finish the trim since the carpetting will be installed next week.

What else have I been doing? Well, I have seen some movies. Played some video games. All instead of blogging. So I will give the super short version of the reviews I wanted to do.

Movie: Serenity

Besides this movie coming out on DVD on December 20th, the movie was phenomenal. This is what sci fi movies should be. There is a rich deep story in a full and enticing universe. If you haven't seen it, go see it.

Movie: Joe Dirt

Surprisingly funny flick. Don't look for any really deep story here, but there is something addictive about the movie even when it has its situational comedy moments.

Game: Fire Emblem (Path of Radiance and Sacred Stones)

The game that will bring out the perfectionist in anyone. The strategy game with rpg elements is addictive because there are many combinations on how to put together your characters (who to level up, etc.). The other part of the addiction is that when a character dies, they are gone, so you always feel the need to fully win a battle as in no one dies. So repeating a battle is not all that uncommon.

Game: Battlefield 2: Modern Combat

I refused to get this game as I am saving up for a 360, but John was kind enough to feed my addiciton. It is a great game. I have had some issues with the game in that I have pulled upa pretty good kill ratio and point gaining ability but cannot go up in rank as I can't seem to get a medal. Alright, might be weird to describe as such, but it is similar to an rpg in that you are assigned a rank based on performance, but you don't gain any new abilities, just prestige. Again. Fun game.

So that is my quickie round up. Let's see if I can keep entering stuff.

Stink Pants and I have Fire Emblem for the GBA and I still haven't finished it because there's a battle I can't get by without people not dying. It sucks.

Are you doing anything the weekend of the 10th or 17th? I still have to run it by my cousin and her husband, but I'll give you guys a call when I find out a good day.

That's cool. Either is fine.

I have had a couple battles in Sacred Stones (second GBA Fire Emblem, not my sacred stones) that I have been stuck on. I eventually get through based on dice roll luck. But most of the time, I fail because I spend time putting in people that should not be in a battle so that I can gain experience...
