Powdered tooth tastes awful XP
Played some more Left 4 Dead 2 last night. Re-played the The Passing and Dark Carnival campaigns to try and get some of the achievements I missed. Even got a few I wasn't expecting.
Achievements unlocked: Cashe Grab
A Ride Denied
'Til It Goes Click
Wing And A Prayer
Going to go through The Passing again and see if I can find the golf club that's supposedly available. Then it'll be time to take on Hard Rain. That campaign should get me the Crass Menagerie achievement, as the Worker Infected is the last of the Uncommon Infected I have to kill.

I'd forgotten how badly an adjusted retainer could make my mouth hurt, and I could have done without the reminder XP At least the ache only lingers a few days.
I finally got the N off my driver's license. I was actually eligible to get if off a year or two ago, but we never got to it. Now I have a brand-new license without the N.
Ran through the Dead Center campaign in Left 4 Dead 2 again. Got three more achievements: Robbed Zombie, Dismemberment Plan, and Head Honcho. Now going to go through The Passing again, try to find the golf club that's supposedly in there somewhere, and get Chain of Command and Grave Robber while I'm at it. Might even take a stab at Kite Like A Man, if a Tank spawns

I found the golf club in The Passing! Got the Fore! achievement, Grave Robber, and Kite Like A Man in that campaign. No chainsaw spawned, so I had to wait until Hard Rain to get my Chain of Command achievement. I also got Crass Menagerie and Weatherman. Took me three tries to get Sob Story because the sugar mill is thoroughly infested with Witches and the AI bot characters are klutzes XP
After finishing Hard Rain I took on Crash Course, the shortest campaign, to get Confederacy of Crunches (finish a campaign using only melee weapons) and Club Dead. Took me two tries to do it... On the first try a Tank incapped all three of the bots at once with a flung car, then got me before I could revive someone. Was not a pretty sight.
After that I took a break from Left 4 Dead 2 and played through the Minerva's Den DLC for BioShock 2. Figured out that Spider Splicers are sooooooooooooooooo much less annoying when you booby-trap the ceiling before starting an ADAM harvest

Nothing like going to the bathroom in the middle of the night and finding unwanted, eight-legged company >.< Had to go out into the kitchen to find a bottle to put the spider in, then left it on the counter for the parents to evict. They didn't even notice. By the time I finally got rid of the spider, the jar was full of webbing.

Got the 5-gallon cleaned today. Rainbow was Not Amused. I moved Obsidian into the other half of the tank; had to wedge a piece of colored plastic sheet from the craft store down along the divider to stop them trying to eat each other through it. Rainbow is now sulking in his hide while Obsidian explores his half of the tank.

Spent most of last night chatting about music with my friend Franziska (Kitra13), who lives in Germany, and she was showing me YouTube vids of music from Faun and Santiano. It's not bad, even though I can't understand a word of it.
Franziska also managed to find the Extremely Coveted Item on the German eBay and won the auction for me! She'll hold it for me until I can save the money to get it shipped over here. This item is very hard to come by over here; when it does show up it's in the $400 range, and tanners/taxidermists over here don't handle domestic hides if they don't come from cows. Still, it's MINE! I'm stoked!
Seriously, we need a "happy dance" emote here

My sister came down from Halifax for the weekend. She was SUPPOSED to show me how to change the encryption on the home wireless so I can get my Nintendo DS Lite to connect, but she just left and she didn't show me. I'm playing Pokemon Black 2 version, and I want to complete the pokedex. But doing so will require a lot of online trading as there are many pokemon that are not available, and quite a few event-only pokemon for which the events are long over. The home wireless encryption is set at the highest point, too strong for my DS to connect to the wireless. Kate was supposed to show me how to change it, but she didn't, and I am extremely pissed off. I had been arranging trades with several other people, having expected to be able to connect by now, but I can't and now I'm going to have to cancel all those trades.
