Okay, I admit it.  
Youtube Rickrolling people was funny. ^_^

Normally, I'm not a huge fan of Internet Asshole Day, since most of the "jokes" aren't funny, and you can't trust any news you read (Sony to remake FFVII for PS3! No wait, it's April 1! HAHAHA!). Some people do a good job (Blizzard and Wizards of the Coast this year, I thought), but most don't. I suppose it's because I think that Rickrolling, much like This! Is! Sparta!, is one of those memes that may never get old.

To this day, the sound Lavos makes makes me twitch. I should really play Chrono Trigger again. Same with Homeworld and the third mission... "Kharak is burning." I think video games have had more emotional impact on me than any novel I've read yet or movie I've watched. Maybe it's the interactivity? For another classic example, "But...the future refused to change." I've explained them to softlykarou, and she doesn't feel strongly about them, probably because it's the identification through having interacted with the characters in an active fashion.

Two of my friends from college came to visit this weekend. It was all kinds of fun, though the weather was probably the worst March weather for a visit imaginable. Drinks were drink, karaoke was sung (though not by me, as I had to work), Smash was played (Sonic boom, sonic boom...) and for a few days, it was just like old times. It was a nice feeling.

I could never get in to Chrono Cross...not sure why. Maybe because I couldn't have Chrono HolyLuminare everything in my path. >.>

The largest SSBB fan boards did a search-replace thing for most of the characters on April Fools. Sonic was replaced with: "Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom Sonic Boom" :-p
