I went out and got myself a present. Because I deserve it. This one was an extra special treat though as I'd found some Alien figures that were pretty awesome. They're both from the japanese Revoltech Watanabe Yuki line, and I was duly impressed. They've got heaps of little areas where you can twist and bend and shape them into almost any pose you want. I went for some standard type ones that I liked. Heres some pictures...
You can even open the mouth and pull the little jaws out. Its beyond cool. The queen comes with an egg and a facehugger. Sadly thats bad news for Ariel!!
Nooooo Ariel!! You've been impregnated. Now we will have Merlians...Saddest day of my life. I was supposed to impreg...uh. Speaking of Ariel, finally finished the entire 3 seasons of the TV series that was released in the early 90s. I didnt even know it existed till recently. Majority of the episodes were great. But there were a couple that were just painfully crap. But I'll forgive her. Because I know she loves me.
The parts that look really brownish seems to be an exaggerated effect from me trying to brighten it with photoshop. Its very black with lighter parts that arent exactly brown but slightly lighter colour. Some of those parts are a little seethroughish because of the specific material being used, so it doesnt come across too well in the photo. Maybe I need more light.
Aside from a few extra bluray movies I was after and got them during an amazing sale (seriously, go watch Triangle. Its the Melissa George one. Love it to death), I also got myself a final little gift, and mainly because I've wanted one for like 4 years and they had an impressive discount on it in a local store so I had to jump. My new baby is the Kindle Paperwhite 2. Cant say how much I love the look of words on that screen. I've always been frustrated with the light in my room. I usually have to set up a lamp behind me when I want to read in bed and over the years it got beyond tiresome. This is excellent. My friend was over and asked me why not just read from a tablet? Since I have plans to get one sometime before I die. I told him to hold up his phone, which is pretty much a mini tablet since he got that huge samsung II or whatever it is. And then I held the kindle up beside it. He was like....Oh. And then I turned the light off and he was like... ooooooohhhh... There was no raping of the eyes with a kindle. I'll be paying off my credit card for the next month, but I deserve it and I'm going to do my best to ignore the little debt.
My PC is also acting like a total BITCH lately. I'm in the process of gathering programs for a total format and then reinstall. Had enough of its crap.
