*yawns tiredly*

I saw Anger Management last night... and I can't quite decide if I liked it or not.  (Ebert & Roeper sure didn't!)  It was funny, but the word that comes to mind when I think of it is... well, weird.  I guess that's nothing new for an Adam Sandler production, though.  *grin*  The previews really got me psyched, though... especially the one for The Matrix: Reloaded.  I can't wait to see that.  The sequel to the Charlie's Angels movie looks like it will kick all ass, too... and they're releasing it on my birthday, June 27th.  Woo hoo!  For the DDR people reading this, I passed a new Oni course on Friday while I was messing around at my part time arcade job.  I can finally say I've survived Naoki Neo-Standard!

I practically yelled with excitement when I finally passed that damn Memories song during the course... it always kicked my butt 'til then.  It felt good putting my initials up for that one.  As I regularly AA the Momo Mix of Burnin' the Floor (the final song on the course) on Heavy, I had nothing to worry about after passing Memories.  I would've beaten the course at the Metreon yesterday as well, but my damn left shoe is coming apart... and it tripped me up.  I can't wait to get paid tomorrow... I'm SO buying a new pair of Squall-esque boots.  Anyhow, back to DDR.  I can't believe I suck so much at Sakura on Heavy mode (as that song on Oni difficulty is "only" a 9 footer)... it has to be a ton easier than MAX 300, and I pass that pretty much whenever I want.  I need to start playing that damn song more.  I've also been having lots of fun with Edit Data... we loaded some really cracked out edits onto the 5th Mix and Extreme machines at the arcade.  :)

Since everyone's been calling me to ask, I'll just confirm it now... I will be hosting another LiveJournal gathering thingy at the Metreon.  It'll happen on Saturday, May 3rd at 4:00pm... and we'll meet on the balcony of the Metreon's top floor as before.  To get there, get on the elevator from the ground floor and hit the button labeled 4... even though the top floor is actually the fifth floor.  If you plan on coming, feel free to post a comment here and I'll include you in the list of attendees that I'll post next time I have the chance.  As for this past meetup, here's a list of who made an appearance.  I'll cut it to prevent your friends lists from increasing in size by two more pages or something.  ;)  I know I left names off this (hell, we had more than 30 people when we went to Mel's Drive In)... so leave a comment here if you're missing from the list, and I'll edit this post to add you.

We also had some guest appearances, including Lilian and Katie's friend Amy.  Anyhow... I was going to write more, but I'm not sure I'll stay awake long enough.  I hope you all have a wonderful week.  In two hours, I'm going to head home... and sleep.  A lot.  :)
