Finally got around to calling the movers this Saturday. They will be over to make a cost estimate this Wednesday, so I have to/have been cleaning as well as checking our what I can get rid of before I move. Future roommate #2 stayed over Saturday and was kind enough to flash clean part of the kitchen today. Got pretty much everything done that I planned to, just have the laundry left!
I also reinstalled windows on the old computer – with space to spare for putting Linux back on it. I’m going to put PlayOn on it so I can see my local computer files from my 360 to my computer again. PlayOn – which is delightful if you have a fast enough internet connection to carry the streaming – will pretty much takes over your windows media sharing to your XBox 360. Very frustrating.
We’ve been watching ‘Shikabane Hime’ on Hulu - pretty good watch if you have the inclination to pick up an anime series. In the anime, sometimes when people die they become ‘Shikabane’, sorta undead monsters. Some of them are bound to monks to become ‘Shikabane Hime’ who help destroy the monster ones. The series focuses around the younger brother of one of the monks, who keeps getting pulled into things by this mysterious talking (dead!) cat. It’s not OMG GOOD but it’s kept us entranced through 11 of the episodes – and we are still watching.
Now if only the internet connection didn’t flail and lose our stream it would be great! Right now watching Future Roommate #2 play guitar (since that is all I have) on the new Guitar Hero World Tour game I picked up when we went to the game store. Speaking of game stores, there is a new one on Edgewood next to the fast food taco joint – they have miniatures terrain tables. Current roommate and some Cornellians went out there today to play some. Lacking in the book area, but they have quite a few board games, card games, and a selection of paints and minis (including starwars ones Mr. $).
