I bought the Sealy cal king
that Costco stocks. It's comfy, it's big, it needs a frame.
I cleared off most of the master balcony
, though I'm not quite sure what to do with the shelving that's in pretty good shape - albeit pink trimmed. The foosball table is going out there, I think that'll be the place to be come summer.
Heather's departure has freed up prime real estate for a study
. My fantasmical workshop of killer apps and photography is now situated between the media room and the garage. I don't really need the upstairs anymore.
I'm rolling right into a second playthrough of Mass Effect 2. The first run was a bit hasty so I could use the finish bonuses for the second, real effort.
- I could almost see Master Chief in the final cutscene. It's a proper second-of-three, plotwise.
- ME1's music was better. The sequel's isn't bad, but it's not quite as distinct nor complementary of the action.
- ME2 consists of more shorter, more numerous missions. The finale is about the length of an average ME1 chapter. It's nice to know doing just one more won't keep you up until three. It also cuts down on the monotony of each dungeon.
- The galactic news bits still inform and entertain, but they don't match the awesomeness of the first since Mass Effect switched anchors. Using the Beyond Good and Evil voice actor for the first one was so clutch.
