I just noticed something: looking at the keyboard while I type actually makes me slower than when I don't look.

Also, to jump to another subject, I liked Persona 4 the video game, but Persona 4 the Animation just about killed me. I didn't think it would work, but it does! The gags are actually better when done in the anime--they flow much smoother--and the slide of days back and forth work pretty well. I have watched it both dubbed and subtitled, and both are pretty darned good.

I got to see our crocuses in the yard yesterday. I love the color and am so glad they are taking root. So pretty.

A couple of weeks ago, Laura, Leslie and Nancy came to visit and we saw the Kodo concert. Taiko drums really move me. They were pretty darned good. The troupe was smaller compared to previous years, but they were still fantastic, and their re-working of the older pieces to compensate for the absences were very well thought out. And after that, we all crashed in a hotel and it was a lot of fun! I just wish we'd had one more day together. Everything happened so fast, we didn't get to do a bunch of stuff I'd have liked to. Oh well, there's always next time (and there will be a next time).

I am totally hooked on Final Fantasy Theatrhythm, even though I basically have no rhythm. But I have been playing so much that I'm getting hand-crampy, so I put that aside for a while. I'm now playing Paper Mario again because that game does not require me to use the stylus at all. I do need something to do while on my long trip to and from work.

For easter, I made supper for me and a friend. I baked a ham, made corn pasta (she's allergic to wheat gluten) with squash, zucchini, red bell peppers and onions. It turned out too spicy for me, but she liked it. Fortunately, I also made a batch of mashed potatoes with butter, sour cream and dill & onion quark (quark is a soft, spreadable cheese sort of like sour cream and cream cheese mixed together), baked with sharp cheddar cheese on top. Needless to say, there is going to be a lot of ham and mashed potato action for lunch this week.

Hmm...anything else?...oh yeah. I totally need to get the disks of Boys on the Slope. I've been watching it on Crunchyroll, and I've decided that I want to have copies. The animation of the drums an piano are amazing, and the plot follows the manga very closely. I also need the soundtrack, as I love jazz, and Yoko Kano did the arrangement for this, and she knows jazz.
