I've recently been playing a lot of Mario 64 on the Wii Virtual Console. I first played this back on the N64 and really didn't like it at all. I found it too hard to get used to playing a game in three dimensions, and having to worry about camera angles and such like. I figured I'd give it another go though, and have been enjoying it immensely. I guess that I've got more used to 3d games in the intervening years, so I can concentrate on the game without getting frustrated at the controls. I think I'm currently at something like 21 stars.

I mentioned recently that I was looking forward to reading Confessor, the last novel of the Sword of Truth series, purely so I'd never have to read another word of Goodkind's dross ever again. I have now read it, and entirely stand by my original feelings. This was a truly terrible book. Hardly a age went by without a spot of eye-rollingly bad preachiness. As far as I can tell, the moral of the story is that religion, communism and rape are roughly equivalent to each other. What's more, it had one of the most inane, anti-climatic deus-ex-machina endings I have ever read, and some of the attempts to tie up 11 books worth of dangling plot points were clumsy beyond belief. If anyone is ever tempted to read the Sword of Truth series, please don't. Or if you have to, read the first two or three books and then stop. Trust me on this one.

I have a new default icon, as I'm sure you've all noticed by now. I'm not entirely sure why I decided to switch to a picture of myself, after so long since I last dropped my previous me-icon. I'm also not quite sure what I think of having that as my icon. It's certainly odd to see my self staring up at me every time I refresh my friends page.

I've now had two people recently independently express a desire to braid my hair. How curious. Anyone else secretly harbouring braiding fantasies in my direction? Anyone plotting to do other things to my hair? Enquiring minds want to know.

I harbour braiding fantasies in the direction of almost everyone I know with long hair. Including you. :)

I rarely encounter someone with as much hair as myself. Braiding my own hair is easy, but the different styles on someone else takes practice.

Irrational, indeed! It's not *my* fault that you clearly have eminently braidable hair. For the record, I have also not yet given up my notions about beads and several colors of dye. ;)~

I'd like to play with your hair. I wouldn't call it harbouring a fantasy, exactly, but you do have very fluffy-looking hair in your new icon. Also, playing with your hair would entail being in the same physical space as you, and knowing you well enough to be mildly physical with you, and both those things seem appealing to me.

I do enjoy hair braiding, but I didn't think of it until I saw it mentioned in a comment on your earlier post and then I thought "oh" and nodded to myself and moved along.
