1. Chloe and Jasper played a lot today! Mostly chasing around the house, which is good, because Chloe is always wanting someone to chase her. And Molly came over to examine him once when he was in quiet mode (he had just been sleeping until she came in the room). She didn't get right up close, but was a couple feet away. Progress!

2. Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask finally arrived in the mail yesterday. I've gotten so spoiled by Prime that it's really annoying to order things from other websites or (as in this case) from non-Prime shippers. But since Miracle Mask is no longer being published, my choices were rather limited and the Prime shippers were all much more expensive. Anyway, I've only played a little bit so far, but am of course enjoying it.

I had to turn off 3D for it, though, as I do with most games. The problem with 3D is if you move the 3DS even a tiny bit (or move your eyes the wrong way), everything gets blurry and out of focus, and I always seem to be moving it. But in order to make things 3D, they changed the art style a bit and the graphics don't look as good (even in 3D, the characters look polygon-y). So that's a bummer. Also if there are puzzles that require 3D I guess I'll have to be turning it on and off.

3. Look at this cutie little guy! He likes to hop into my chair as soon as I get up.

1. I actually slept in until ten this morning (and could have actually slept longer, but I had plans for brunch with my mom at 10:30). For the last several weeks, even on my days off and late days, I was still waking up around nine or earlier, and it just felt nice to actually sleep in when I had the opportunity. (I was really groggy all morning, though, so I do wish I could have slept longer!)

2. I'm nearly done with Professor Layton and the Last Specter. Just the epilogue left to do (and any missing puzzles). I really zoomed through this one! I like the addition of the multi-tap function, in addition to just regular tapping (finding even more hidden things is always a draw for me in any game) and I found most of the puzzles to be a good level for me (though there were definitely a few where I had to use all four hints). I also like the addition of Emmy as assistant. Anyway, even though I should play Paper Mario Sticker Star now, since that's the other game I got for Christmas, I've gone and ordered Miracle Mask off Amazon just now... ^_^;;

3. I got manga posted and some other manga translated. Not as much as I'd hoped because ??? I honestly have no idea what I did with my day, but apparently it wasn't that. Oh well.

4. It's supposed to rain pretty much every day for the foreseeable future. I'm really happy about all this rain, though I do hope most of it is at night when I'm not out doing stuff.

5. The cats continue to be impossibly cute. Seriously, it's like every time I find them snuggling, they're in an even cuter position than before!
