Gotta Catch 'Em All!

Well, someone caught half of them before I got there! When I went to EB Games to get my FFXI expansion pack today, I picked up the new pokemon game. Unfortunately all the Red copies were sold out! I debated for only a moment, then got the Green one. (If I left the store without the game in hand, I likely never would have gotten it. I wouldn't have made the trip just for it.) So sadly, I won't get to use Growlithe (and I would never want to use a Ninetales because it reminds me of something), I'm sure I'll still enjoy the game.

Even before I stopped eating meat, I hated fish. The smell of it makes me gag. Unfortunately someone here at work keeps having it for lunch and smells up the whole place with it. It's all I can do not to vomit into my wastepaper basket.

I watched some (series? mini-movie?) last night on ABC. Lost. Part one was last night, part two is next week. I've not enjoyed something on TV that much in a long time! Really well made (you could see the money they must have poured into it), and a story type I love: Plane crashes on an island. Are the survivors alone? No, there's something there with them. They handle it really well by not showing us what that something is. Can't wait for next week!

I watched FMA #47 this morning, which means I have one more to watch before I'm caught up. As with watching Naruto yesterday morning, I was struck by how good the music is! Why is it that American shows suck so badly next to anime? I almost want to ask "why don't more Americans watch anime?", but there's no point in that. You have to think when watching many anime series, and often you have to read subtitles! Gasp! Who would want to do that when Home Improvement, Friends, or America's Funniest Home Videos is on? Bah.

In general, life is going well. I have a week of vacation the first week in October. I wonder if there will be any movies out I want to see? (I've not seen a movie in the theaters since HP PoA. If nothing else, I miss the popcorn!)
