ROUGH TOUCH

14 December 2005

I bought a new keyboard today; one that's just as large as my old one, but with light laptop keys instead of the plumb normal ones. It is my theory that this will aid in relieving the stress from my fingers when I'm typing the enormous scripts I tend to write. Writing dialogue is fun.

I guess today's episode of August holds allegiance to films as The Matrix and more recently, Serenity. I thought it would be nice to have an unapologetic fighting sequence. Kind of shows a different side of the little captain, don't you think? Roommate Tom confessed he was shocked when he saw August succeed in kicking down the cell door. He had fully expected him to fail as usual. Well, not this time mister! August is going to kick ass. As long as this story arc lasts, that is.

Mmm, these keys sure are light to the touch. I think my fingers are actually improving as I type more.

I've decided to cheat my way through Majora's Mask. Actually; occasionally use a walkthrough. I don't feel that guilty at all; Zelda is notoriously skimpy when it comes to coughing up directions and hints to the more secret of things. The stuff I read in the walkthrough: I would have never guessed to do those, not unless I would sink weeks into that game just messing around. And I don't have time for that. Cheating is a big word for this: Zelda ensures that the challenge lies in executing everything, whereas being stuck because you haven't got a clue is just tedious.

Ah, and my wisdom teeth (is it called that? Those irritating, useless teeth you grow between the age of 15/25 stuck in the back of your mouth?) are popping up. All sides went without trouble except for the left bottom row; which suffered a tremendous root canal treatment a year and a half ago and will forever remain sore. It's hurting again, so I've got an appointment with the dentist this Friday. He's, yeah, pretty likely to get busy with my teeth. That'll show those rotten bastards! Pity I have to be conscious throughout the ordeal though, but it must be done.This keyboard; I'm telling you...
