Mind Still on Vacation

The body has returned from vacation, but the mind is still languishing at the lovely Hyatt Lost Pines Resort and Spa. My spirit cries for release from the toil and drudgery of my normal life, which is all the more depressing, seeing how I won't be taking a vacation any time soon.


At least I have The World Ends With You to play on the DS. This game has gripped me like no game since Puzzle Quest which says a tremendous amount about the game and about how much my wife would like to break my DS into a million little pieces. I bring my DS with me everywhere now, not so that I can eke out a few minutes of pin driven psychic combat on the go, but because I fear for its safety while I'm at work. Had you seen the looks I got while playing God of War for the PSP, the staccato of button presses the ever present soundtrack to our evenings, you'd understand what I'm talking about.

At any rate, I have a lot to talk about including, but not limited to:
  • The World Ends With You
  • The recent two cd reissue of Bleed American
  • My vacation
I want to make sure I give all of these topics the time they deserve, so I have to make sure I gather my thoughts correctly, while at the same time, not spend so much time gathering them that I forget what I did on vacation and then try and tell you that I spent a week riding humongous, mutant armadillos in the war against the Mole Men of Shak Al'Dur. I can assure you that my vacation was nowhere near that interesting. I also have to balance the need for posting with the need to play The World Ends With You as I am playing this game in an official, reviewing capacity as well as for fun and that means that I have a deadline.

Perhaps a leather bound organizer is in order or at the very least, a Trapper Keeper.

At any rate, I'd say that it's good to be back, but I find that lying to my readers causes trust issues. Instead I'll say that I don't hate being back as much as I'd hate being punched in the kidneys.
