01:18 pm - Wrestlemania 26 thoughts
Finally watched this and thought it was a much better show than I've read. It's not an all time classic WM, but at least twenty times better than last year's.

The opener was worthless but seemed like a big deal and just seeing that huge crowd and the cool entrance set was worth it.

Money in the Bank was fun even if a lot of it didn't make sense and there weren't as many 'holy shit' moments as usual. I guess they answered how you can have a ladder match with guys that have never had one before, just don't have them do anything stupid.

The triple threat was decent and did a good job of getting Orton even more over, but I wish Dibiase got 'Priceless' as his song back and Rhodes stuck with the Legacy song, because Rhodes' theme song is nowhere near as good as 'Priceless'. I bet Orton gets a much more prominent role next year.

Vince/Bert was ok, I did think it ran a little long but I liked the angle of Bert screwing Vince and I think that was the best possible thing to do to end that angle. and they finally are working on getting the Hart Dynasty over, so expect Smith on RAW after the draft.

HHH/Sheamus is actually my match of the night I think. I loved the buildup video, probably my 2nd favorite of all time now, and thought the match was excellently worked considering how limited the two are mobility wise. Very hard hitting and some unique counters and near falls. Can't believe HHH kicked out of the big boot. These two work very well together.

Punk/Rey was a lot of fun but I can't believe Vince/Bert got more time, probably the most inexcusable thing all night.

Divas match was fine, I loved the tribute to Eddie and thought that was sweet of her. Considering he was such a jokester, he'd probably have gotten a kick out of it.

Cena/Batista have good chemistry but I didn't think this match had enough of a 'big match' feeling for some reason. It's like they were going through the motions and there weren't enough near falls. Rock/Austin, this was not.

HBK/Taker was better than last year's, I thought, which I found to be a terribly overrated match. This one was surprisingly decent and kept me on my toes, no small feat considering I really don't like either one of them. There were WAY too many near falls on Taker's part though, and HBK kicking out of two chokeslams, a Last Ride, and a Tombstone makes no sense at all. If he was heel, that wouldn't happen. Decent match though.

Overall I found it to be a pretty enjoyable show and I'd watch it again next year probably.

12:09 am - I don't use this much any more
Sorry I have not been updating hardly ever, I have just been completely unmotivated to lately. There's a decent amount going on in my life.. most of it not good. At least one eye is fixed and the other one almost is, I think I mentioned that already but not sure. My ex is being a total bitch to me, my home life sucks, blah blah, everything is okay though.

Here's what happened on Wednesday when I went to get my second eye surgery. I got there at 12:00 as instructed, since it was 2 PM surgery. Note I am diabetic, so this is not wise to give me a surgery so late in the day considering I can not eat or drink the night before. My sugar was 129 when I left the house, so I figured I'd be okay. When I got to the hospital waiting room, I started to feel very thirsty and I knew something was wrong. I was dying for water. Anyways, they called me in just before I was ready to drink some water, and I go changed into my gown. They checked my sugar.. 368. But they still gave my eye drops, made me wait in the bed, did my vitals, etc. The nurse was training a new girl and the new girl gave me her first ever human IV, no less. I figured they could give me some insulin and everything would be ok. A few units would have worked. At 2:00, the time of the surgery, they said the blood draw showed my blood was 364 and therefore they could not do surgery at all because my sugar was way too high. I understand their position but why wait 2 hours?

I've been playing Mana Khemia for Playstation 2 and that's a really entertaining game. There's a lot of alchemy involved which I don't mind half as much as I expected to, the graphics and music are great, and THE BATTLE SYSTEM OH MY GOD THE BATTLE SYSTEM. If this game was slightly less dependent on making you go back to the same areas over and over again, and didn't use the Grow Book as a leveling up system, it would be even better, but color me impressed so far. I'm in Chapter 6 and I think there's 12 chapters.

Here's a list of movies I've watched lately and what I thought:

War of the Roses - I rewatched The Breakup before this and really enjoyed it still, but man, War of the Roses is a lot funnier. This movie did not age at all. Fantastic!

Phenomenon: Pretty good movie about a man who believes he saw a UFO that granted him strange powers. A great soundtrack, good story, and one of Travolta's better performances. And I love me some Travolta.

Joe vs the Volcano - Probably the 2nd weakest Tom Hanks film I have ever seen, but the ending was really sweet and made up for it. And Meg Ryan is HOT.

Just Like Heaven - A really funny and sweet chick flick with great acting performances, lots of funny moments, a moving storyline, and great soundtrack. One of the better movies I've seen this year.

Friday the 13th (2009) - If one horror franchise needed a reboot, it's this one, and this one was pulled off in style. One of the greatest horror movies ever made, right up there with Halloween (original), Nightmare on Elm Street, and Saw. I hope the NOES reboot/remake is just as good as this one was.

Let's see what else.. well, my youtube obsession has gone from Let's Play videos to Unsolved Mysteries, I've been spending a lot of times on an unsolved mysteries forum reading up on possibly theories about these mysteries and they really intrigue me. A lot of them are just totally strange and bizarre and maybe it's better off if they never get solved. I highly doubt Judith Himes will ever truly be solved, even with a confession letter mailed to the police station.

I did end up saying more than I thought I would, so that's a start. =)

12:37 pm - Last updated 25 weeks ago?
Wow, time flies I guess. =P

A lot is going on lately. Well, not really, it just seems that way sometimes. I did manage to find a job in February and have managed to survive it so far, so that's been a plus. It's been a real blessing to be able to afford things now.. like finally getting my laptop's keyboard fixed, so I can bring you amazing livejournal entries like this one! I am a bit mad at something happening at my job right now, though. I was hired at a mere 7.21 an hour, which is not even minimum wage, with a promise that in a month, it'd be raised to 8 dollars an hour. Except the manager who hired me left before a month, and the new manager hasn't given me a raise yet. And I find out the people she hired are making 8 an hour, even though I do way more work than them and even trained them. They don't even think it's fair. Plus, I found out the guy I work with directly, who does the same exact job as me, gets NINE dollars an hour. That's almost two more than me. So, yeah, I'm going to be raising a fit to at least get up to 8.

Especially since I found out I might be getting wage garnished now because of past student loans. Note to kids: don't go to college unless you are sure that's what you want to do with your life. It's just going to be a big albatross hanging over your head otherwise.

Health wise, things are so-so. I found out I have cataracts, so that's been a huge adjustment. I have trouble seeing clearly, everything's a blur, yadda yadda. It's a pain, but I am hoping to have surgery soon to correct it. I did get new glasses, which helps with day-to-day survival and vision, but short term vision like reading is still a major disaster. If I don't talk to you on the computer, it's probably because I can't see what the hell is going on. It happens quite frequently.

I was really sick this past week, and had to rest for a few days. My colon decided to remind me it still is a sick colon, and I had some brutal pains, dizzy spells, flu-like symptoms, the works. It was brutal, and I don't wish a colon problem on anyone.

I don't really play video games or watch many movies as a result of working, being tired a lot (the hours are pretty bad. I go in around 6:30 AM every day I work), and the cataracts, but there's a few things I'd like to accomplish at some point.

-> I'd like to finish Xenosaga Episode 2. This game SUCKS, but I was pretty close to the end, and then I can move onto 3, which I heard is far better.

-> I'd also like to finish Dragon Quest 5, which I am close to doing, and then finish the remix of 3 that got translated recently for SNES. Then, I'd suddenly have most of the series beaten, since I have beaten 1, 2, 4, and 8 already.

-> Movie wise, man, I really want to see Friday the 13th. I am SO MAD I was not able to see it in the movie theater because of my vision. KI also want to see 12 Rounds, but that's not a huge concern.

I spend a lot of my time watching Let's Play videos on youtube.com lately. These are videos where a person will talk while playing a video game. It's a good way to find out how a game goes without actually having to play through it yourself. I now know what Blaster Master (NES) looks like all the way through, since lord knows I'd never have the patience to sit down and actually play through that one.

I'm sure I'll have more to say eventually, but that's all I can think of right now. I'm still alive, basically.

06:50 pm - Maybe life is trying to tell me something.
My life, ever since being placed on tramadol, has been one long series of interconnected naps with bursts of random conciousness.

Today, I was supposed to go on my first date in 18 months or so, and I went to sleep early so I'd be awake in the afternoon. Supposedly. Unfortunately, I got up at 5, went back to sleep at 12, and slept until 6. Fortunately I managed to let her know what was going on, and she seemed to understand.. but still. I can't see her for a week now.

Yeah.. fuck it. I guess I am supposed to be single forever or something.

I've beaten 17 RPGs this year.

I miss my life, but it's good to be killing the backlog.

Now I need sleep.

End useless post.

I have no idea why I haven't posted this sooner, but some buddies and I did a podcast on PS1 RPGs this past week. Listen as I ramble on about why FF7 is the greatest game ever made and why Chrono Cross.. isn't! 2 hours of RPG Goodness!
