As of today I've entered the second half of my break. My vacation has been really chill so far. Relaxing, casually going out shopping, eating delicious things, drinking wine in the middle of the afternoon. Feel like I've been spending a lot of time with my nose in various volumes of manga, a reflection of the fact that the bulk of my shopping time over the break has been spent in places that sell books. Pretty awesome. I've also been eating tons of curry. Think I've had it, like, four times this week? :D
Came down with a really bad headache on Wednesday, though, which I guess has been the only bad bit so far. Came from the eyes, and is totally the fault of spending that afternoon playing Persona 4 on the Vita. But even the headache had an upside! Mainly, an hour or two listening to classical music in the living room with the lights off, scented candle burning. Other than the pain, it was really peaceful and refreshing. Sometimes it's nice to just sit, think, and listen to music, right?
I spent some time running around to various markets in my neighborhood this morning, because tonight is taco night! I even got cilantro (it can be kind of an elusive herb here, but luckily a super market about a 20 minute walk from here sells it!) and UNNF SO EXCITED!
Also went to the booze shop/import shop I used to live by when I lived in the Yakuza infested building to get some stuff, and they had restocked their import beer! So happy to see Strong Suffolk Vintage Ale
back (SO GOOD), and seems they have also started stocking Blue Moon since my last visit! So awesome! Got a bottle of each, plus some Negro Modelo cuz TACO NIGHT.
Also, have you guys seen the US PSN's Golden Week Sale
? It's pretty awesome! Signed up for the free Playstation Plus trial just to get Tales of Symphonia Chronicles for $10. $10! And I used some leftover credit to buy it anyway, so it feels kinda free! Hooray!
