Called in sick today. Body aches and pains. It was too damn cold last night and I guess I slept funny; it happens from time to time. Crashed a few hours and took it easy after that. I dunno, it’s another day where I was on the fine line between going in to work and dealing with it or resting… I didn’t even telecommute. Not sure how I feel about it. Bleah.
But enough about that. Tony Hawk 4 hath landed, and it’s NICE. Very spacious levels, goals I can actually complete (so far…) and such. I don’t like that I have to blindly spend the limited amount of ‘money’ you get in the game to unlock secret items — but I can’t LOOK at what I’m unlocking. I bought a kilt, but then found out it won’t work on my female CAW. (I demand equal rights!) I’m mostly gonna wait for a cheat code to be made available that auto-unlocks this stuff… I like PLAYING the game, not managing my resources trying to get the playable stuff.
Also in the 4 category, my Pentium 4 has arrived! Wow, they weren’t kidding; it’s just a BOX. Not even a power cable was included, oy. I’m gonna try to do the HD swap and hookup tomorrow, keeping XP Home on it… I’m worried. Every major computer upgrade I’ve done ends up crippling something or screwing something up. If the system goes haywire or god forbid NWN doesn’t even RUN on it… well, I dunno. Crossing my fingers. I have bad luck.
In more positive news, the casting’s almost done for EE. I’ve picked through the candidates and selected ones I feel will work the best for each role — a few are DEAD ON perfect, some are close enough for government work. I’ll still accept auditions through tomorrow night, in case something better rolls in. I’ll post when they’re finalized. I probably won’t do callbacks; I’d prefer just to pick a voice and go.
