The mass of humanity (duckanity?) is stunning. There are people...

Maybe it's jealousy. I have my usual crowd of bloggers that I go to every day, and they're all so damn good that it makes me want to just close down The Pond and go home.

And so it was today, when I saw The Greatest Headline Ever:
While the deaths of these seven men is a tragedy, and I hate myself for finding humor in it, I cannot help but chuckle. I'm going straight to hell.

For all intense porpises (say it out loud), this is the Duck U. Bookstore's Christmas season. The textbook biz isn't like regular retail, really. Our "Christmas Season" is about three weeks long and is seperated into two distinct pieces by a period of about 5 months. Then we go into minor hibernation.
In those three weeks, though, the Duck U. Bookstore will do roughly 75-80% of our yearly sales. That's not too extreme in this biz; I know of one store that does 95% of their $1.5 million in sales in three days (caveat: they're a high school. The place is still a madhouse in those three days, though). The rest of the year's sales is clothing and supplies, essentially.
So, knowing all that, I'm still going to try and blog every day. Don't be surprised if I fail miserably, though.
I also have the entire CardCaptor Sakura series to watch sometime... 18 DVDs (thanks for the heads-up a week or so ago, Steven), 70-some-odd episodes, for less than $80? For what's considered one of the best anime series of all time? Sign me up for that!
It appears that TRSI found some type of deal at Amazon.com. The first 15 DVDs were shrinkwrapped together with an Amazon barcode on it, then the last three DVDs were shrinkwrapped to THAT. As long as they all work, and as long as it isn't that nightmarish English version, Cardcaptors, I don't care where it came from, at that price!
Right, I'm off to go plunder a cave near Skingrad now (i.e., still playing Oblivion)!

My excuse is called OBLIVION, and it's consuming a lot of my waking hours that aren't spent at work.
Fascinating game. Beautiful to look at, fun to play, engrossing world. It actually reminds me of the 'old days' of pen & paper D&D... Hey, Vaucanson's Duck! What was the name of your campaign again?
I've been playing for about 20 hours now, and I'm only 2nd level... which is fine with me. I'm still learning the game.
But oh, what fun it is to learn!

If you're really curious, feel free to e-mail me. I wouldn't mind explaining the whole thing.
