Today was fun. We went to two antique stores and I came home with two antique clue games. :)

1950s complete (minus lead pipe)
1960s complete (minus lead pipe and scarlet's peice)

Why do lead pipes get lost so often?

Well, I managed to get my little brother and sister hooked on Batman: The Animated Series. It's another victory in getting them to stop watching junk on the Disney Channel, I suppose. I'm actually very surprised that my little sister took to it. She's usually a bit of a pain in the neck when it comes to the superhero genre, whining all the time that "it's too scary" (when nothing's happened) and screaming that she wants to watch something else. But to my everlasting surprise, she was enjoying it just as much as my Spiderman-loving little brother.

I love that show. The first three seasons are animated so nicely, and have such mature scripts with plenty of fine humour. I hate the cubist look of the last series, though, although the stories themselves were still good- the final episode with the Judge is one of my all-time favourites, despite the awful look.

Speaking of Batman, I managed to luck out and buy Batman: Arkham Asylum for Windows today. 8)

I dunno, but for the longest time, I swore I swallowed my 1996 candlestick by accident.

One of the best shows ever made. Good on you. I can already hear the theme tune...

Congrats! It's a great game (a little too dark at times) but great nethertheless.

I could just be biased to all this though seeming as I'm a hardcore Batman fan-boy. :P

The Misadventures of Flapjack is finished? Well, that was short-lived. 3 seasons...

Such a shame. It had such potential. Hundreds of episodes could've been done. Then again, I suppose it was best to finish it on a high note, rather than having it continue with mediocre episodes (like several cartoons I can think of).

Now I just need to watch the finale...

Sorry. Rant/memorial over lol.

I've never been a fan of that particular cartoon, though to be fair, it was a *beep* of a lot better than that Chowder.

I'll have to get used to being a university man. Today was the first orientation day for me at Waterloo, and it was all a bit overwhelming. But I did meet some nice people there who were kind enough to help me out when I got lost or anything, and it was generally an enjoyable day...

... until I got on the bus (punctually late), my newly acquired sunburn began to irritate me, and then, once I got home, I suddenly had an awful and sudden case of diarrhea- and I didn't have enough time to get to the washroom. (Kinda embarassing.)

Still, none of those random misfortunes can be blamed on the school itself, which I rather like so far. It's far more fun than my high school, and the idiots I couldn't stand there haven't made it here. :) (What I don't like is the bill for the textbooks...)

I had my senior orientation today, and rather suddenly I just want to get out and never look back. With my best friend having moved to Canada earlier this year, I'm suddenly...alone. Bleh.

I won't be here at all for a couple of weeks. I've earned myself a small hoilday.
