Final Fantasy is Inspiration

My favorite video game series of all time is Final Fantasy. My favorite of all has got to be XII, closely followed by X. However, I think XIII was the first to come out in high defI fell in love with the graphics. And with this chick:

Her name is Lightning, and she's awesome. My main character doesn't fit Lightning's description (except for the awesome part) but still, whenever I picture my heroine, all I see is Lightning. So I'm adding her picture here to inspire me.

For the third time in my life, I find myself without an iPhone. Oh the pain! I no longer fear childbirth.

The first time it happened, well, the iPhone came out, and I didn't have it. It wasn't that bad. I got one a few months later.

The second time it happened, someone stole my iPhone at a bar. iPhone 3G had just come out, but I didn't want to switch. So I found a guy on craigslist that sold me his old phone  he was one of the ones that switched. When I plugged my "new" phone to iTunes and it loaded all my old data screen saver and all! I experienced true happiness.

Now this. I was in Barbados, my iPhone 4 was in "airplane mode", and the screen went dead from overheating. The irony is that I had put it in my waterproof case, which didn't allow it to breathe or something. It did not go in the water. It just became really hot and the screen went black. It still works. It buzzes when I get an email. I can listen to music through headphones. I could receive calls through headphones too, I'm sure, but the airplane mode screwed that up. I took it to the Apple Store and nope, nothing they can do; it's a hardware thing. It's over two years old so it's out of warranty.

My best option is to just get the iPhone 5, which came out the day my phone broke. No, I didn't do it on purpose to get myself a new phone. I wasn't even thinking of getting the new iPhone. But alas, fate has dealt me a wicked hand. Now my problem is, ALL THESE JERKS GETTING THEIR NEW PHONES with perfectly good working phones, I'll bet! THERE ARE NO IPHONES IN STOCK ANYWHERE!! I can't live like this. Good bye.

That novel you've been working on

One of my favorite clips in Family Guy is from the episode "Brian the Bachelor". The wiki article about this episode mentions someone slamming the very scenes I love: Stewie making fun of Brian, who's been working on a novel for 3 years. Maybe it's because it speaks to me, but I love the clips (it happens twice in the episode). I'd paste a youtube link to the clip here, but years from now the links may be outdated, so I won't.

I'm writing a novel. I used to write the story just to get it out of my system, but as time goes on I think I'll actually finish it. So wait for it.... wait for it...

Welcome to my blog

This is my very first post. I should write something epic, but I'm wearing a button that says "Vote for Jimmy" and my hair is messy, it's Friday, and I'm almost out of lunch time. Obviously I can't just be all "Winter is coming... So let me speak in words of kings and dragons and fantastic cinematography..."

Off I go, to be Johi.
