You know, the last time we went to Fanime con was the year that convinced me that DDR was fun. I was reading a blogger that was really into it (hi kosquarepelli
!) and seeing the Red Octane booth next to us at that convention convinced me to get a nice dance pad and try it. Never have regretted it. Though tonight has shown me why people will gather around the person playing will do what the arrows dictate even though they're not on a dance pad. Because I was totally doing that tonight. I was in the middle of cleaning up and I really liked the song running in the background and danced along with it. Silly, yes I know. I was in a good mood and felt good even with how tired mentally I was. :P
The hip is still bothering me a little but didn't hurt at all while jumping around and following the arrows. Silly muscles.
Hereforth, there be randomness:
I managed to finally sell back my I/O Psychology book back today and got $54 for it. Better than I was expecting. Depending on how much money I have left from my loan for school books, I may push this money towards the buying of new bookcases. (Yay Ikea!)
On the way to walk-in advising this morning, I was listening to the sports radio station (790 am I think). None of the other stations caught my interest and the guys doing the talkshow was funny. And they held a dumb questions segment, where no question was too dumb to ask. What sent me into a laughing fit was how one caller asked "In professional sports, is slapping the butt of another guy against man laws?" I, of course, was amused just from this question alone. The answer: "Of course it's all right. Only if it's professional sports." But one the co-hosts started in on how said slapping should be done and how he liked it to be done. I was glad the road was mostly clear around me then because I was too distracted laughing.

Have any interest in The Last Unicorn
movie? Because of the legal dispute with Granada Media, Mr. Peter Beagle is not getting paid for any profits from the movie. There is going to be a 25th Anniversary edition of the movie released to DVD on February 6th, with supposedly muuuch
better quality of video than the first DVD release. (Which, btw, I heard looks like a VHS rip. I own it but haven't watched the DVD yet.) So, if you have any interest in The Last Unicorn
movie, please purchase it from Colan Press at this site
. The are paying Mr. Beagle over half of each DVD sold. And you can have the choice of a regular edition and an autographed edition. :> (I have plans to buy it from this site. Because of the above and the better video quality.) cleolinda
goes over the dispute more in this post
Now, off to sleep.
