Given that the movie of it is apparently A Big Deal, I went out today and tried to buy the first book of The Hunger Games, because I like to be up on what all the hip young kids are into and so forth. In what was genuinely a pretty cool twist, the bookstore I went to at the local mall was sold out of it, which was actually really nice to see. It's a pleasant thought that best-selling books can still be sold out in this day and age; it offsets the whole 'bookstores closing everywhere' doom and gloom. /cool story bro

It's been somewhat of an effort thanks to EA servers being crappy, but I've finally managed to set up Mass Effect 3. It's annoying, since it takes about two to three minutes just to load up the damn start screen, and I haven't actually gotten a chance to play yet. Sat down at about 1pm thinking "oh yay, everyone's out, time for a few hours with Shepard!". Turned out to be a few hours trying to load the Collector's Edition DLC and wrangling the constantly timing out EA servers. Bleh. Maybe tomorrow?

Practically no-one on my friends list is actually in Melbourne, but if you are or happen to be in the next couple of weeks, you should check this out. The person who runs it is actually my father-in-law, and it's a really fun show!

Sorry about inactivity. Finally started reading A Song of Ice and Fire, about four months after buying it. asdf it is awesome. I've been recommending it to all my book-reading friends. Finished the first book yesterday, and am running out tomorrow to buy the second. Why did I not read this sooner? ;;

Um. Have started playing RD again because one of my uni friends is playing it for the first time, and, as we all know, it is generally not very hard to encourage me to play RD. I'm up to... I can't remember exactly, but it's late in Part III, after the Crimeans show up late to the party. Am continuing my thing of training a bunch of characters to see how good they are, but the results so far have been depressingly mediocre. Boyd, who is usually pretty good when I don't train him, is apparently horrible when I do put conscious effort into using him. And Tauroneo is just terrible, but that's to be expected.

My mother's gotten really into Fringe and seems to think I'd really like it. I'm planning on giving it a shot, but does anyone else on flist watch it? Is it any good?
