So.... yesterday we got a big order shipped out, etc. and then we decided that we weren't going to bother upgrading Matt's computer again so we could play Dark Age of Camlot (the computer is just too old, it's not worth it). So instead we thought we'd go buy a Playstation 2 and buy a couple of copies of Final Fantasy XI Online! That way I could play it on my newly-upgraded computer together with Matt on the PS2 (we kinda wanted a PS2 anyways so we could get Dance Dance Revolution, hehe). So we went out to several different stores, searching in vain for a PS2 before the guy at Best Buy leveled with us saying that there aren't any in town right now!?!? Why??? PS2s have been around a good long time, and everytime I've gone to Gamestop, EB Games, Best Buy, Target, Costco, etc. there have been stacks of them!!! But apparently there's some shortage going on, grrr......
So we're buying one online =P In the meantime, I bought the edition for my PC (I thought I'd better try it out first, before I sunk a bunch of money into the PS2, the PS2 modem, the PS2 game bundle ((it comes with its own 40 Gigabyte hard drive, lol)), etc.). It works great!!! I've never had a MMORPG run sooo smoothly on my system! It has the "cute" factor that I like too. Hurray! I played it for a few hours last night, and I already love it =) So we'll definitely go ahead and invest in the PS2 vertion for Matty to play with me =)
But of course, I can't let this interfere with my work at all, lol (I know it's an addictive game, but I have a lot of self control). In fact, I'm getting ready to paint!!!
I'm going to start on LEO!!! Leo of course is the next installment in my Zodiac series =) According to my research, the the colour associated with Leo is yellow, the flower for Leo is sunflower, and there seem to be several stones associated with Leo - tigereye, sapphire, jasper, etc. I'm not sure which one I will pick. I'll of course put the constellation of Leo in the back too!
I've got a few quick things to do first, and then I'll be painting and you can watch me HERE shortly!!!
