A Post-Mother's Day….post

Yesterday was Mother’s Day and being a mother, I enjoyed it to the fullest!

My day started out with two hours of PEACE AND QUIET. Do you have any idea what kind of rare commodity that is when you have an ‘energetic’ 3 year-old, a 3 year-old dog and a husband? It’s better than platinum.

So my loving husband took the crazy child and the crazy dog and went out first thing in the morning to the dog park. This meant there was only myself and the Hatchling I’m currently gestating in the house. I wasn’t alone, but it was certainly quiet.

So what did I do with those two glorious hours?

I PLAYED MY VIDEO GAME THAT I GOT AS A MOTHER’S DAY PRESENT.

Yeah. That’s right. That’s how we do in my house. I also got The Secret World of Arrietty. It’s one of the Studio Ghibli movies that I HAVE to watch with original Japanese audio and English subtitles. The only movies I can watch with English dub are: Howl’s Moving Castle, Castle in the Sky and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. The voice actors that were chosen for those movies were very well done. I mean, COME ON! Patrick Stewart!!! YES!

Anyway, back to my video game of awesomeness: I received Tales of Graces f  as my gift. I’ve already annihilated Tales of Vesperia and I was very happy with that game. I HATED the English voice actors though and in the newest installment to the Tales I’m not overly keen on them again, but I’ll manage. I’ve heard a rumour that the up-and-coming Tales of Xillia is supposed to have the original Japanese audio track. I will be super stoked if that’s true and it’ll make the delay in release that much better. The thing was supposed to drop in January of 2013 and now it’s been pushed back to AUGUST 2013.

All this enjoyment of video games has seriously prevented me from formatting. I need to get my ass in gear before I end up delaying my publishing date AGAIN and kicking myself in the ass repeatedly.
