Things that cheer me up #10

Seeing that there is fantabulous progress on the new Tomb Raider game. I’m a bit annoyed that they’re not carrying on from the previous one, and I’m a bit stunned at how much Lara has changed. I’m all for making the graphics better and making her look more realistic, but you’d think she still needs the same basic bone structure. I’m starting to wonder if this isn’t actually an imposter - Louise Croft or something like that.

I’ve never wanted a day to go so fast in my whole life. And did it? Nope. But now I’ll push the never-ending day from my mind and concentrate on the good stuff. For my birthday (a rather belated present, but TOTALLY worth the wait), I got a new computer. A brand spanking new computer with a marvellous graphics card and a super duper silver screen. It’s just the best thing ever.

Argh, Tomb Raider is so infuriating! We’ve got to a bit with a lady who’s a bug… sort of a ladybug! But she’s really hard to defeat. In fact, I’ve travelled to visit my parents to get away from it! We’re looking at photos of me as a kid, and the nice parents that they are let me choose which ones they can embarrass me with. What a choice!

Things that are getting on my nerves: I can’t stop listening to Queen. And if it’s not Queen, it’s We Will Rock You. I’m currently playing Tomb Raider 2 in an attempt to kill time before the new one arrives. I got stuck in Venice (level 2). All those waterways! Once I’d got through that, I breezed through the next four levels and now I’m stuck again… grr… We headed to Borders, to their Paperchase section, for wedding present wrapping paper, but we ended up browsing through all the books and DVD’s and the computer magazines.
