So, uh, those Christmas cards are going to be a little late, but I promise I will get them done! (And [ profile] iolites, I will mail Faize along with the card.)

As I'm writing this, we have a whopping 20 inches of snow outside. I took the tape measure out onto the back deck yesterday to check; it consistently measured at around 19"-20". That's more than DC usually gets in a YEAR, and we got it over the span of two days. And, as is DC's custom, they're failing at plowing the streets. I pity all of the commuters who have to drive-- the roads are going to be a mess for DAYS. (I'm lucky in that I just walk to the Metro. Of course, that means I don't have an excuse for not going in to work either.)

Just a few more days until Christmas and then ten days off. Oh man, am I ever looking forward to that, especially after how crazy work was last week.

Oh yeah, and a meme thing:

Name a fandom, and I'll give you the scoop on at least three of my unpopular opinions related to that fandom.

... is it bad that I still envy you people who get snow? SoCal still gets none. D:

Hey, if you want some of these 20 inches, you're welcome to them!

I actually loved DoTNW a lot and felt that in some ways it was better than the original. The battle system and controls were better, for one thing, and characters like Regal really got a chance to shine after being screwed over for screentime in the first game.

I love Regal and Colette. They're two of my favorite characters from the first game, despite how much flak they get from fandom. That's why I was so happy to see Regal getting to be awesome in DotNW-- I could point at that and go "see, THAT'S why I love him so much." XD

I don't see why Zelos gets such an insane amount of love in fandom. Sure, he's pretty, and sure, he's interesting, but not vastly more so than any of the other characters.

I don't ship Guy/Luke. Yes, I know it's one of the most popular pairings in the fandom, but I see it as being strictly an older brother/younger brother thing, no sexual tension involved.

I don't think long-haired Luke was nearly as awesome as a lot of people seem to think he was-- I found him to be a whiny brat.

I like Luke better than Asch. :|b

People think long-haired Luke is awesome? >_>

I have seen a LOT of people who say they like long-haired Luke a lot more than short-haired Luke.

Joining in on the 'I wish we had snow on our side of the world' train. I went up to Canada a couple of years ago to see it and you guys are so lucky to have white Christmases. :o

Actually, the last time we had a white Christmas here in DC was about 20 years ago, when I was just a little kid. XD;

P.S. We finally played 1 and 3. Sam is attempting to finish 4, although I think when we last left off Whats-Her-Name was failing at running from Walter.

P.P.S. Hi!
