Some kitty belly for you all

 

I've been enjoying some of the recent pet photos, so I figured I'd post one of my cat. My avatar is her as a kitten. This is her today. It's a common pose of hers. If she's relaxed enough (meaning she doesn't spring up the instant I move towards her), I can pet her chest and head for a few seconds before she decides she's had enough. If her head and front legs were pointed in one direction and her hind legs in the opposite direction, I'd know it's safe to pet her belly for a while. :-)

I'm too tired for this

Aw crap. My car is dead. :-(

 

Crossing my fingers that it's just the battery.

Non-book post...

I'm going to be spending the next few hours telling folks not to panic when our glitchy printing system tells them they somehow both have money for printing and also no money for printing. I'm up to 6 people so far, let's see how long it takes to hit double digits. Siiigh. I was hoping this issue would be fixed by today.

(Not book-related, and more dating sim with actual game elements than visual novel, but the trailer made me laugh so I thought I'd share. Looks like it's available for Windows and Mac at the moment.)

 

I started playing the free version over the weekend out of morbid curiosity, and it turned out to be way more entertaining than I expected. Everyone's horrible in their own unique way, but none of them are horrible in a puppy kicking kind of way.

 

There's Nate (uptight and expects everyone to be as good at everything as he is), Shiloh (enormous suck up), Everett (abrasive and can't think for himself), Bae (snarky and annoying), Pran (refuses to hold a conversation), and Jeremy (so very emo). And then there's the heroine, who doesn't care how annoying, frustrating, or difficult to like any of the guys are, because they're hot and there's maybe a chance she can date one of them. She flat out tells them this too - one of the things I'm loving about the game is that nearly all of the characters are completely aware of the things about themselves that put others off and don't try to hide those aspects. There are also a few fun non-dateable side characters. My favorites are Lynn, the school nurse who tries to force everybody to get along, and the little con artist/luck manipulator in the shopping district.

 

I've put about 5 hours in so far and still haven't finished my first playthrough. Future playthroughs might not be quite as much fun due to scene repetitions, but thankfully there's the usual "skip" button and one unusual feature the developer kindly included, an in-game spot where you can enter cheat codes. During my second playthrough, I plan on using the one that'll let me avoid having to constantly check and maintain my reputation with all the cliques, because one full playthrough of having to do that is enough.

New computer

My new computer arrived yesterday. I felt a bit bad about replacing my old one before it's completely dead, but I use my computer for so much that I didn't feel I could wait for it to get to that point.

 

I've set up the new one and transferred over a few things. I'm pleased that my Calibre library seems to be working perfectly, with all the tags still present and everything. This weekend I may put the computer to the test with some graphics-heavy games. Absolutely for testing purposes and not because I really want to play those games or anything. Yes.
