Due to problems with the internet (or rather the router and my computer’s network card), I have been unable to do any blogging for the past couple of weeks. There are still problems present, but I’m hoping everything will be functioning and stable in a week’s time or so.
In more exciting news, yesterday I found Viewtiful Joe 2 for the GameCube, new and sealed, for 40 NOK in a bargain bin at Europris. (Think of it as 4 USD.) And I bought it, too. I haven’t played any of the games in the series, but I’ve heard the first two are pretty original and fun. No idea if you ought to have played the first game before the second, or if it’s pretty redundant.
At the same store I also saw some beautiful candle lights in neon lilac that I was tempted to buy. But not sure what I’d use them for. Seemed most appropriate for romantic dinners, which don’t happen all that often due to the lack of a romantic dinner partner. Perhaps I could have a faux romantic dinner with a friend, where we’d stare ironically into each other’s eyes and sarcastically compliment one another. Then we’d play Viewtiful Joe 2.
I also finished my master’s thesis for my master’s in philosophy about a week ago. (And yes, that was pretty much the worst possible time to lose the internet connection.) I was done at 8 in the morning, and didn’t manage to get much sleep after my li’l all nighter. So I amused my sleep deprived brain with building a thesis reference tower – taking every single book and text I’d used for my thesis and stacking the literature on top of one another. Then I amused myself by putting a few other items on top of the tower again, and taking pictures. Here are a few of them.
A total of 36 sources, books and papers.
Who’s this mysterious figure standing atop the tower?
Why, it’s Resident Evil 3’s mutated menace Nemesis!
Looking smart in a new hat.
Oh my… I apologize, miss; I should have knocked.
I’ve created a monster!
