Report, wherein lies your salvation...but not really. And
now, on with the report!
Signe and I are doing well, as usual. The holidays were a
bit rocky. Signe's parents were planning on coming down but
couldn't make it, but we did get to see Emmett, which was
way awesome! Signe is still working at the movie theater so
thing still move along. We went on a cloths buying spree a
while back and now we both have some new clothes, which is
nice, since I can't remember the last pair of pants I
The old mantra, I love my job, now if they just paid me
more to do it. :) I really like RedOctane, the people are
great, it is a fun and rewarding place to work, but I am
barely being paid enough to get by. This is not what I
thought life after college would be like. Even though my
job at iambic left me constantly depressed and never
satisfied, at least I could pay the bills. My search
continues for a new job, but there aren't too many bits out
there these days.
FanimeCon is picking up. Andrew and I are starting to get
panelists for the convention in June, and my docket of
American guests is almost full.
No-Name didn't have a Dec. meeting so I haven't seen the
No-Name guys in a while, but just the other day Robert
stopped by and gave me an Azumanga Daioh calendar, which
was really rad of him. We are starting showings up again
As for new stuff I am watching, I really haven't been
watching much. I'm trying to get through Gasaraki, but it
isn't holding my interest. Beyond that I haven't been doing
the anime thing too much.
I did finish Chrono Trigger for PSX though and am now
playing Chrono Cross. Which are both good games. I have
Saga Frontier to play after that too.
As for watching stuff, Signe and I have been watching Buffy
lately. I think we have seen most of the episodes from
seasons 1-7 and some of Angel season 4. That is fun stuff.
We have only been playing DDR off and on for the past few
months. We have all the mixes for the PSX (3rd Mix is Signe
and my favorite) and play them every now and again. When
Emmett was down my anime buddy Brian Papp came up to visit
from Ft. Hood where he is stationed in the Army and we
introduced them to the fantastic times to be had playing
trv no go
When Emmett as here we played some Go which was very cool.
I really miss playing with live people, but I can't get up
the energy to go down to the Go club on Tuesday nights
anymore. I do still play at "ItsYourTurn" though, user name
is still "jumex," come challenge me anytime.
The computer is working great as always. We don't do much
on it except for IMing, email, budget stuff, and web
I have some ideas for some projects I want to do, but I
need to get the energy and motivation to do them. These
days I get home from work, which is 8 hours of non-stop
talking and busy work that I don't want to do much of
We have watched all the "blockbusters" of the holiday
season. I can't recall them all, nothing really stood out
as fantastic. LotR: TTT was cool to watch, and I liked
watching Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant (sweet!) as well,
but nothing to hoot and holler over.
Just got a call from my best man, Scott. He moved into a
new pad in Seattle and is doing well working his way into
becoming a 3D art genius!
Brian Papp's visit was great, if not short. I gave him most
of my fansubbed anime (muhahaha) so he could spread the
wealth. It was just collecting dust in my closet and from
the sounds of it; I think Specialist Papp is turning his
entire division into Otaku, one soldier at a time.
The get together at Paul's house was fun, as always. Paul
is a great host and it is always great to go over there and
talk anime and relax.
For Christmas my Dad got me this great print of the cover
of the first "Exiles" book by Michael Whelan, which is too
cool. It is hanging at our entrance to greet people as they
Well, that is it for this not too exciting holiday edition
of the Trev Report. Hopefully there will be more
interesting stuff in the next report. As always I love
hearing from all of you, so keep in touch.
Until next time,
