My cat, Lucy, died Monday night.

She was just a little over a year old, and we have no idea how it happened. All I know is that I'm going to miss that little monster like crazy.

I buried her at my mom's house. She's resting underneath the rose bushes at the corner of the yard.

Life's been pretty boring lately.

Last week, Ness and I rented a couple of Wii games, since Brawl was getting a little stale. We ended up getting Soul Calibur: Legends and MySims (just because I really wanted to try it - I love sandbox games like that).

MySims was freaking adorable. I made this cute little pink Sim, built her a purple "mansion," and ran around building all sorts of goodies for the people in the neighborhood. The only downside was that, after achieving three stars (you get stars for completing tasks in town), the game started to slow down a lot; I'm hoping that's fixed when MySims Kingdom is released.

SC:L sucked. Ness and I tried so hard to play it, but the Wii could never detect the correct movements. We would move our arms to do a horizontal swing, and the game character would do a vertical. The camera (that couldn't be moved manually) was really bad too, and since the game made us :| a lot, we took it back for an exchange.

We ended up getting Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles. Now, I had never played an arcade shooter before (yeah, I know), and even though this game was short, it was really, really fun. We spent a lot of time LOLing over random things, like tossing a grenade in the center of a ton of zombies or leeches, or me continuing to beat the shit out of an already dead zombie ("Jess, the zombie's dead." "He's dead when I say he's dead!"). But yeah, overall, we had a blast.

Aside of that, nothing much is going on at the moment. I'll be on my own for about a week in September, since Ness is going down to TN to see his family. My mom's trying to convince me to go out to South Dakota with her and my grandma in order to visit my uncle's family (my cousin just had her second baby), but I really don't want to go. It's not that I don't like the family or anything, but I know I'd feel really uncomfortable being there (the marriage guilting and the baby thing, but that's a rant I'm sure no one wants to hear). I've already sorta told her no, but my mom's not really listening. :|

Oh, I'm not sure I mentioned this before, but I'm a moderator over at DiabloFans.com now. I've had the "job" since late-June, and it's okay, I guess. No one asked me if I wanted the job or anything - I just saw my name in blue (the mod color) and a 'Congrats!' message in my forum mail. Honestly, I feel like quitting since it's starting to remind me a lot of Palace/Balamb, but I don't really know yet. I guess we'll see.

One last thing, I suppose, is that I'm not entirely sure how long I'll be staying on LiveJournal. I've been keeping up with the news posts recently, and I can't say that I'm too happy about the way the business is going.

If anyone doesn't know, all basic users now have ads on their journals. Logged-in users won't see them, but visitors will. There are rumors now that paid account prices will be increased, so it's not just basic users being affected.

Don't get me wrong; I know LJ is a business, and businesses need to make money. Seeing ads isn't that huge of a deal for me either (Firefox + Adblock, and really, what website doesn't have advertising these days?). The point is that I joined LJ because it promised to be ad-free, and I even paid for my old accounts because I wanted to support that. Now, not so much.

Out of curiosity, I decided to log out and take a look at what my journal is advertising. My actual journal has ads for a t-shirt company and some fantasy football thing (WTF...), and my profile had a dating site ad (gaudy, at that), and an Ask.com one (for bathing suit body types). Yeah. I almost want to completely lock my journal and see what happens.

I've been looking at Dreamwidth, which looks to be a pretty good site once it's completed. It's still in the process of being coded, though, so there's no ETA at the moment. I'll probably still keep my LJ, but just lock it and (maybe) transfer my entries from here and, possibly, my communities and old journals. Besides, maybe the move will motivate me to actually post my stuff again.

Am I overreacting? Probably, since I haven't posted a lot recently, but it's just the way that I am. I don't like knowing what's being advertised on my journal even if it uses my content; I could make fun of Tom Cruise and wind up getting ads for Scientology.

Ah, well.

This is why I hate parents.

I haven't been to bed yet, but I'm so excited now that I don't think I can sleep.

As a lot of people know, Blizzard is holding their Worldwide Invitational in Paris this year, and the opening ceremonies started today at around 5:30 EST. Being a Diablo nerd, I, of course, had to watch the live streaming video (which was choppy and sucked, by the way - I missed the first 15 minutes or so due to no sound, no video, or both), and stuck it out in the IRC channel with my fellow Diablo fans from DiabloFans.com (formerly Diablo3.com, hurhur).

Biggest shock ever~!

Michael Morheim has announced that Diablo III is official.

I think I just wet myself. <3

It looks fucking AWESOME. Same perspective, same great system, but updated graphics, zoomable camera, and male/female versions of characters. Characters can interact with the environment, too, along with new skills, familiar characters, and hirelings/friendly NPCs.

I'm so excited~! YAY!

Still alive.

Yeah, I'm still living.

Sorry it's belated, but happy late-birthday to both d0odicle and wyrenth. I feel bad about not saying so sooner, but unfortunately, I don't check LiveJournal as often as I should. I hope you both had fun on your special days. :)

As for news on the home-front, Ness and I "celebrated" five years together this past Monday. I say "celebrated" because he completely forgot about it, as if the awesome dinner and extra attention he got that day didn't tip him off (and funny enough, he was the one bringing it up the week before, too).

I don't even know anymore. I guess I should just stop caring.

So, yesterday afternoon, Ness and I got a Wii, along with Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

I don't think I've ever felt love like this before. <3

It's so much fun, and the Wiimote/Nunchuk is so easy on my hands (they've been hurting again lately, for some reason or another). We haven't tried Wii Sports yet, but we'll probably get plenty of that later this week when my parents come over to try it.

Just a quickie.

I think this is a video that everyone can appreciate.

This has been circulated around the internet a little bit, so I thought I'd do my part to spread the word.

Last week, an Uwe Boll was interviewed by some magazine/website/whatever (I can't be half-assed to remember right now). Anyway, they asked him about the online petition, with 18,000 signatures, requesting he stop making his "movies." He said he was aware, but 18,000 wasn't enough to convince him; he would consider it if there were one million signatures on the petition.

Well, needless to say, the petition is circulating around the internet again. There are over 194,000 signatures right now (I signed at 65,000, yay), and I'm sure more will come. Now, I know he's probably kidding about the one million signatures, but still, it's worth a shot.

You can do your part by signing here.

Do it for BloodRayne. Do it for Alone in the Dark. Do it for his shoddy financing ways.

Uwe Boll is pretty upset about it. A video was released late last week, where he was criticising the petition and rambling on about his "genius." He claims that he's making fun of video game plots (and yes, some are cheesy, but that's why we love them), but to put it in LOLspeak, "UR DOIN IT RONG."

Anyway, I know it's a somewhat incoherent entry, but I was up late watching episodes of Full House on YouTube (lolololol), and I'm getting ready to leave now (joy of joys). But anyway, enjoy.

Wow. Ness and I just got done watching all three Lord of the Rings movies, back-to-back. It was a total waste of a Sunday, but it was worth it. It'd been awhile since either of us had seen the movies, and they happened to be on TV, so we figured "why not?"

In other news, on Thursday I will officially be an aunt. My sister and her husband are adopting a four-year-old girl (they know the mother, and the mother doesn't want her; it's complicated). According to my mom, they are meeting with the lawyer and signing papers on Thursday to make everything official, even though Andrea (the girl) has been staying with my sister for quite awhile now.

Andrea is adorable, though. She loves horses, Barbies, and anything that's pink or purple. Her mom always dressed her in boy's clothes, so she'd never worn a dress until just a couple of weeks ago. Now she wants to dress up everyday, and always tells people about her "twirly dresses" that she loves so much.

Now I know this is going to sound like sibling rivalry or whatever, but I can't help but be jealous. Don't get me wrong; I'm happy for everyone involved, but eh. I guess I'm just feeling pretty left out of everything, along with watching everyone around me getting the things that I want. Call me selfish, call me greedy, but I just can't help it.

The truth is, I've wanted to have a baby for a year or so now. It's not just because everyone else has one, or anything like that...I just have wanted one. I guess my biological clock is winding up and I can't stop it. :|

It was never a good time to bring it up, or even think about it with everything going on the past year or so. I mean, I understood that we didn't really have a great living situation, finances were all over the place, and things were just too scattered and tense to even think about it. Up until a few months ago, we were living in a damn camper, so yeah...not a good idea.

But now things are settling down. We have a house; it's small, but it's perfect for us. We live in a nice neighborhood, away from the noise, but close enough to town to be comfortable. Our finances are falling into place, and our relationship is great.

I'm totally breaking this into too many paragraphs, haha.

But anyway. I won't have a baby without being married anyway, which is a whole different issue. It's been discussed once or twice, but I just don't know. Things feel...stale. Like I said, the relationship is great, but it's like it's reached its peak. I dunno. I'm babbling.

Anyway. I've been helping to edit the Diablo Wikia lately. It's pretty messy, but a lot of progress is being made. If anything, it's giving me something to do until I can find a different game to play. Diablo's fun and all, but sometimes I just need to play something different to keep from getting overly bored.

I guess that's it for now. I've been babbling a little too much, and I don't know what else to say..except that I need new icons. Ugh.

I saw this on Fark yesterday and I just had to share it, because whether you're pro-life or pro-choice, we can all enjoy a little bit of crazy.
