sadrobots: (I can see forever)
Actually went to the library last week, and then received birthday presents from dad.

Books:

One Hundred Years of Solitude
A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius
The Waves
The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana (Currently Reading)

Presents:
A Macbook Pro
Two wireless mice
One older pair of headphones
A new headset that you can talk into
A ps3!
Games:
God of War 3 (finished), Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (finished), Red Dead Redemption (Currently playing), Final Fantasy 13, Final Fantasy: The Crystal Bearers, Assassins Creed one and two, Heavy Rain, and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

Red Dead Redemption is really buggy, the controls are bizarre, and every portrayal of women in the game with the exception of Bonnie (so far) makes me very uncomfortable. I'm especially bothered by the women who get attacked outside the saloons. At least I can shoot the attacker in the crotch after I kick the bastard. But I still find the game fun despite that. God of War 3 was even worse than Red Dead Redemption with the way women were treated, but I still had fun killing lots of enemies.

Oh Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I think I was the only one in my high school literature class who liked One Hundred Years of Solitude. Everyone else hated it, I think. What other explanation could there be for their robotic reading of it in class? I had to keep myself from yelling at them to read with more feeling, or at least to read faster. The last thing I needed was to get in trouble for my big mouth. They read every book that way though. Even No Exit, which was about people in hell! You can't read that so robotically, come on now! Then again, I was in the class because I liked reading, and because I was looking for book recommendations or at least to get to read I book I hadn't read before. I think they were just in that class to fill a space on their class schedule because the guidance counselor made them.
