FF7-AC-Cloud in church

With a decidedly sinister laugh...

Well, I've managed to survive the end of the fiscal year and even managed to get my production bonus, although I had to pull an all-nighter to do it. Whoopie.

::collapses into limp heap from exhaustion::

But on a much happier note, I got a new DVD player that plays divx (i.e., AVI) files! Now I can watch my fansubs on my sofa (thereby sparing my poor butt) and on my 25" TV (versus my archaic 17" CRT monitor). It cost about $70 more than an ordinary DVD player, but my poor aging eyes say that it was worth every penny. ::pets her new DVD player::

I decided to take a few days off to recover from my recent labors so I settled down to watch "Last Order" (again!) and more of "Advent Children". Ah, watching the duel between Cloud and Sephiroth in slo-mo was a revelation -- I saw some things that I totally missed at regular speed. Understandable, given how damn fast some of the fighting went. It reminds me of the famous fight between Kenshin and Saitoh in the Kamiya dojo -- things move so fast that it's easy to miss the subtler details.

BTW, I ended up having to get a brand new computer - a Mac Mini. Awww, it's cute! ^_^
