This holiday weekend was quite eventful! Well, kind of. I did lost of things, and since I like making lists, here's what I did!
1. Drive My Sister Around: Yes, Mom and Dad decided to go on vacation to Oregon over the holiday weekend, which means I got stuck driving my little sister around everywhere. Again.
She thinks I'm the best driving instructor she has. The worst driver, true, but the best driving instructor. My tips are always the best, but that's just because I have a ton of experience with walkthroughs and helping people know what they need to do.
So going to dinner with my sister was my Valentine's Day dinner. I got a cheeseburger with a chocolate shake! That's pure deliciousness right there.
2. Phoenix Wright Marathon: I played a TON of Phoenix Wright 2 this weekend, recording it for my video walkthrough.
Whenever we talk about Phoenix Wright on the GameCola podcast, Paul and I always seem to get in a two-hour debate over which characters in the game should go out with each other. Paul, the delusional fool, is convinced that Phoenix belongs with his assistant Maya, when it is CLEAR that Phoenix has a greater connection with his mentor Mia.
So during my playthrough, I kept an eye out for any possible dialogue that could be used as ammo in the Great Phoenix Wright Dating Debate. Whenever Mia says something nice to Phoenix, I make a big deal out of it. There is a TON of relationship material to discuss in this game, whether it's Maya flirting with the defendant in Case 3 or Phoenix bringing flowers to Franziska when she's in the hospital (which I thought was really surprising, given the fact that she really hates him), so you can expect the debates to continue for a long time to come.
3. No Zelda Recording: I have two hours/5 GB of footage for Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, but I didn't hear from the person who is scheduled to be my co-commentator, so no commentary was recorded.
4. I Got Hit By A Car: I was riding my bike, when someone tried to pull the "I'm going to slow down at the stop sign, but if there's no traffic, I'm going to turn without making a full stop" move and bashed into my bike. The back tire is completely busted now.
Helpful Hint for Drivers: STOP AT STOP SIGNS.
Fortunately, he was slowing down for the turn, so I had a few seconds of warning. These seconds were comprised mostly of "Why isn't he stop....AUAUAAUUAUAUAUAH!"
I jumped off in time and was able to avoid injury, which is good. I'm still going to have to pay for a new bike, though, which is completely unfair, but I guess you can't expect someone who doesn't stop at stop signs to be a responsible person.
My parents disagree, however, so they chewed me out for not getting the man's insurance information.
