You know how most people, when they take a day off work for an extra-long weekend, actually enjoy their time? I still need to figure out how to do that. With my three-day weekend, I:
- Wrote a lengthy piece for 1UP;
- Copy-edited GameSpite Quarterly 9;
- Spent about six hours on the elliptical in a vain attempt to curtail the inevitable re-thickening of my midsection;
- Played the final two-thirds of Halo: Reach.
OK, the last one was pretty fun, but there was still a sense of obligation about it, because I’m tired of leaving games half-finished and needed to wrap Reach before I can move onto other things I feel obligated to play in order to feel up-to-date with industry trends and hits. Yeah!
Next up, I need to finish my illustrations for the fourth Bonus Book. The plan is to have that ready for proofing in a couple of weeks when I send GSQ9 off to have a proof printed of that as well. Efficiency! I’ve drawn most of the art for the bonus book, except I kind of hate it and feel like you guys deserve better. That image to the right is one of the images that’s being discarded due to its being generally sort of terrible.
Now to eat a giant piece of chocolate cake and completely undermine item three from above. Guys, I am a giant idiot.
