The thing is, when I'm playing Mass Effect, I'm usually bitching about/at it (if not aloud, then at least in my head). The constant loading, the needless slow-ups, having to go all over my enormous ship to talk to people all the time, lest I miss when they really want to have a talk, the fire fights that I still can't aim at no matter what I do...

The second I step away from it, all I want to do is to go back. I was up until an ungodly hour this morning playing, but what all I achieved for that, I could not tell you. I grabbed a few more people onto my ship, said hello to some old friends (wow, it was awkward telling off the person I went after, romantically, in ME because I'm still interested in the one I got in ME2), explored a few worlds while trying not to attract undue attention from the galaxy-ending baddies. So I did stuff. But mostly I just talked to people and did a few errand missions. They've made it more and less complicated to do what was always my favorite part of the flying around part of the game, which is mining for shit on planets. It's less work to find stuff, but it's more dangerous to try. Totally addictive.

I have to stop reading the internet, though, because despite the fact that Shepard has grown, as a character, in different ways between different folks, the second I hear something that spoils anything, I get irrationally pissed the fuck off. It's the last game in the series (or so BioWare claims; I'm a tad skeptical that they wouldn't keep going for all of my and every other fan's money), so I want to get through it without being spoiled (which is why I can't say more than I have here; respect!). Especially since every development makes me want to hug the game and squeeze it until it pops with love. If those get spoiled for me, I develop an equally passionate response in the opposite direction--I WILL KILL EVERYONE.

So, yeah, I need to finish this without spoilers. I also need to figure out why none of my avatar rewards for the game are showing up on my avatar. I want my N7 helmet and my Normandy, damn it.

How else can explain inexplicably forgetting not one, but two appointments today? I hit the snooze button extra times this morning only to have to rush around my apartment in whirl of teeth-brushing, cat-feeding, lunch-packing madness because I forgot I had a doctor's appointment at 9:30. Which I was fifteen minutes late for despite taking a cab up to work. The only good news about that is that because I was late, my appointment started almost right away, as opposed to making me wait fifteen-twenty minutes like they usually do.

I set about making a hundred plans for after work, mostly involving getting my ass back on the exercise bike after going to the grocery store (I think it's been, like, two weeks since last I set foot in one). Which will all have to wait now, seeing as I promised weeks ago to catch up with an old high school friend for dinner. At least she texted me today, or I'd have left her hanging wherever. I need to remember to put these things in my calendar. Although I'm pretty sure that I did put the doctor's appointment in my calendar, and I forgot it anyway, and if I could remember things well enough I to put them in the calendar, I wouldn't need the calendar in the first place.

Okay, so maybe I can't stay up until 4 am playing Mass Effect without consequences. Duly noted. Hey, brain, how do we feel about staying up all night/morning playing House of the Dead: Overkill? Surely, that can't be as bad.
