ack. I'm not sure if I like this nudging thing. But I guess it lets me know how long it's been since I last updated and how horribly I've been neglecting lj. ^^;

So anyhow, the move went pretty well, and the drive was more fun than I expected. I haven't had much time to do anything online since though, mainly because my commute now totals 2 and a half hours a day. >_< ...this is vs the 5-10 minutes from before. It's totally worth it though, because the new company and neighborhood both rock. The whole public transportation thing though, still trying to get used to it. :/

Hobby-wise I haven't been watching anime at all, and even prior to moving, gaming had slowed to a trickle. So books it is again! ...especially since I'm doing so much commuting now. I've finally gotten around to reading all the Robin Hobb books, courtesy of [ profile] litl_iruka, or at least all the complete ones. I hear she has a new series out, but I probably wait until all of it is out first. I grabbed the rest of Monster, but I'm still a good 10 or so eps away from the end. Other than that I haven't really been following anything else.

On to the short but spoilery book blurbs! )

Other than that, I'm in love with my cable box. :P I've never had a cable box before, and this whole on Demand thing is the best thing since sliced bread. Now if only everything could be on Demand. (why yes, I have comcast) Oh and the tv here has asian channels <3 So far, noteworthy shows are the kdrama Full House, which luckily I caught just as it was starting and I think there are some fairly interesting jdoramas on the weekend, like Egao no Housoku(subbed), and Kiken na Aneki(unsubbed) - but I'm not able to catch them regularly enough. Thankfully Full House airs either Monday or Wednesday nights. :D

I'm not at all used to waiting patiently for my dramas to air though. I'd forgotten how painful it is. >_< It looks like they're pretty loosely based off the manga, but they still manage to capture the bickeriness between the two main characters just right. That and it's just hilarious and wacky enough to work for me. San Kye Kyo is just adorable and although I personally find Bi/Rain/etc kind of fugly, he's great at doing comedy. The gratuitous shots of him kind of crack me up too. ^^; The newly added "friends" of Ji-Eun are annoying though, and they make Ji-Eun look stupider.
