mario sunshine.

Some people were complaining on the pvp online forum that it has a dumb name. Er, right. Play the game, silly, never mind the name. And have you seen the water? Wow. It gets irritating at times as I'm not the most used-to-playing this kind of game (esp. tricky with jumping and getting on particular platforms etc - which is why I'm much better at luigi's mansion, for example) Yes, I got Mario Sunshine yesterday, partially as a gift from my friend Sarah.

I did a lot of walking today, and was happy enough to get a piece of pizza this evening. Something is wrong, or maybe the scale is off. Or something. I lost two pounds since yesterday? It doesn't make sense. In any case, I'm between 156-162 at the moment. Not sure exactly where I am as it were. But a lot lower than when I moved into New York. Julia, my darling fiance, says that I don't get enough food. I argue that I eat a lot. I guess I don't eat things which push for weight gain? Or something.

In a week I'll be home and counting down the days (as if I'm not doing that now) until I get to see my darling Julia, and how long until the wedding, etc.

weird conversation with my brother.

I was talking on the phone with my brother. This really happened. I said to him, "I have an album recommendation for you." Mind you, my brother and I both listen to many really different kinds of music, dozens of different artists. Hundreds. He said, "All right, as long as it's not the Flaming Lips. Which is funny, because I was about to suggest an album by the Flaming Lips. This Japanese version of "Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots" kicks ass.

All goes well in Australia - on Julia's end that is. It seems that we will almost certainly be able to rent the 2 bedroom townhouse - at three twenty dollars a month, by the way. Which comes with one and a half bathrooms, a living room, and a kitchen. And a balcony for the main bedroom. Have I mentioned it's $320 a month? I wouldn't get a fricking closet for that around Manhattan. So what I pay for my tiny cramped room would pay for 3 months in this gorgeous townhouse. Talk about crazy.
