Emptyeye.com Week 33

This past week, my main activity was signing the lease for my new apartment. Hooray for that. I’m pretty excited about it, and I’m slowly packing up non-essential smaller stuff to move little by little throughout the week since it’s right by my workplace. I have to admit that I’m also nervous about it. Not that I won’t be able to adjust to independence, mind you–I should be okay there, and I have enough saved up money-wise that we’ll be okay short-term even in the worst of scenarios. Rather, I’m a bit scared that Jess and I will move in together and discover we can’t actually stand being around each other every day. But we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it, I guess.

Other than that, I haven’t done much this week. Once I get all settled in with the apartment and such, work on the album will finally continue. That will be a good thing for sure; I must admit to being lazy on that front of late.

And I’m still playing through Wizardry III. Just earlier today I found a particularly nasty trap that insta-kills your entire party. I was pretty sure it was a trap, but stupidly walked into it anyway out of curiosity, wondering what would rhyme with “clock” that would hurt. I wasn’t expecting “rock” (As in “You teleported into…”) to be the rhyme completer, though. Still, at least it only killed my party (In case I haven’t beaten it over all your heads enough, the fact that I am thanking the game for not doing something worse than killing my entire party–and yes, worse fates exist–should really hammer home how brutally sadistic the game is), and it was kind enough to ship their dead bodies back to the castle for me too!

Until next week…

    Wizardry does have a habit of doing that (and worse) eh? Still, I’ve always liked video games where the characters “stay dead” since, you know, they are dead.

    As for moving in, I’m not sure how long your lease is but 6 months is always a good start for a first place. If you decide to upgrade/change you can do it without penalty and if you like it, you can usually renew at the same rent. What I’m more worried about is what/if you’ll actually eat :)

    Yeah, Wizardry totally kicks you in the groin and then kicks you in the face when you’ve crumpled to the ground from that initial hit–and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

    And my lease is for a year, which is fine as far as I’m concerned.
