First off, I ended up being sick for three and a half weeks
(!!) so have horribly ignored many people's posts, comments etc. I do care! Really!
I have been converted to the total joy that is rosemary on roast potatoes after eating the ones Katie made at Terracon. She is a culinary queen.
Watched Enterprise with Cam, and it's actually not that bad once you get past the incredibly bad first season, especially in seasons 3 and 4. As in, not that bad for Star Trek
. I realised recently that watching Babylon 5 significantly raised my tolerance for superficially crappy tv sf, since underneath the crud lies a really good story. Of course Star Trek is frequently crap all the way down, but now I can enjoy the good bits here and there.
I have been playing Final Fantasy X and really enjoying it, I think partly becuase it's a lot quicker and easier to get into the meat of the story than with the others, and is also very pretty. I find myself liking the somewhat cheesy voiceover, even. Unfortunately my FF8 saves were lost when I discovered that our 8mb ps1 cartridge was not
designed for ps2s, and since the fact monsters level up with you takes a lot of the fun out of my level-up-till-you-know-you're-invincible approach I may not get back to it. Anyone got a copy of ff7 I can borrow for a Very Long Time once I'm finished with ffx? (I'm crap at computer games)
Oh! And we've decided on our wedding cake
, we're booking them tommorrow. I designed it myself, keeping it a surpise :) (Except from other upcoming bride-to-bes like nico_wolfwood
