Missing Reviews, Geekery, and Cub Scouts Galore

Bah, it's already Friday, and I'm so far behind that even next week's Monday morning rambling post is late.

I've only watched two of the new anime series for this season so far (Angel Beats and Ichiban Ushiro no Dai Maou), and while they were both good, neither was exactly something to write home about. Of course, it's still too early in the season to tell if they're going to be good, but neither of them started out the season with.... shall we say, objectionable content.

And of course, I've once again picked up on V. That said, it has started coming across as... well "meh." After all, there's only so much one can do with a series of this nature. Either the good guys are going to win at the end of season 1, or we're going to be stuck in interminable limbo where just as the good guys start to win, some new, more powerful bad guy shows up to kick more butt. Now, if the writers would sit down and say: "this is going to go for three seasons, and this is what we're doing." then I would probably be much, much happier with how things are going.

Oh well.

Apparently, I've joined the "Cub Scout Council" for my pack and fielded the first meeting of it last night. Which went basically like all meetings I've ever been in went--except this one stayed more on topic regarding the agenda than any I've seen before.

Finally, I know I've been missing reviews, and I feel bad about it. Unfortunately, time has a way of running from me screaming. Of course, the zombie slaughters I'm carrying out (or "survivor slaughters, when I'm playing as the Infected) in Left 4 Dead 2 doesn't exactly help with my time. But it's such fun! I for one, can't wait for "The Passing" to finally get released so we can have a new map and game options.

Well, I must get the eldest to school, and get myself to work for another day of coding joy...
