arise: (fire emblem ♥ beach holiday mia)
Getting a chance to update is pretty hard. Not even because we're super busy, but I keep thinking of it only as I'm going to sleep or whatever. Thanks for everyone's well wishes :) Baby is just over two weeks old now. Her name's Alexandra, and she was born big and healthy. (Almost 4.2kg and 53cm, or in confusing-measurement terms, 9.2 pounds and 20.8 inches.) Labour was not too bad but it is not an experience I would recommend. Anasthesia is not nearly as reliable as I had been led to believe by others. We're settling in nicely now. Husband is on uni holidays and I can't go back to work yet, so we're spending most of our time nesting in the lounge. We have been marathoning The West Wing to the extent that leaving the theme music playing acts as a fairly reliable lullaby. Also playing a lot of Civilization, which is more or less what kept me sane in the hospital. (I did not so much sleep during my stay there as fall unconscious between turns.)

Honestly I think I'm becoming really really boring. Have a bit of random insomnia right now, but it's actually kinda nice being up alone; husband and baby sleeping in next room, so it's not like I'm missing anything. Fuck, I'm domestic.

Haven't played the ME3 extended cut yet, and will probably just yt the endings at some point. I don't have enough points on my multiplayer to get the good endings, and the reports about whether the multi prereqs have been changed are really contradictory, so I'm not getting my hopes up too high. I've been pretty disillusioned with the ending since I realised that 2/3 choices begin with the thesis "so Saren/TIM actually had a pretty good idea...". Also still bitter about Jacob and other mances getting so thoroughly shafted; didn't notice it on the first playthrough because I'd Liaramanced. I still like Liaramance best, but it sucks no-one else got what they wanted.

But hey, BioWare endings, never that good. One of my favourite things about finishing any BioWare game is watching husband rage over the ending even though he didn't play the game in question. I think he was more pissed about the ME3 ending than I was.

uhhh long entry is long so I'll just finish it with; watched him play Lollipop Chainsaw. Somewhat conflicted about it on a gender studies level, but it didn't look like that enjoyable a game, so I guess that's that. Gotta give Suda51 props for style, though. Next game I'm looking out for is Sleeping Dogs because idk I must have all sandbox crime games, even if it takes me forever to play them. (Still going on Mafia II ffs.)
