Today was pretty productive. Didn't have anywhere to be, although I was asked by Hal's wife (Anne-Marie) if I wanted to attend Easter celebrations at her sister's house. I said no, because like most holidays, it lost meaning after my mother died, and perhaps even before. So it's just another day to me *shrug*.

I cleaned the shit out of the basement. Like, removed a lot of dust, mopped the floor, repurposed a plastic cubby/drawer set for my own use. Did a lot of laundry. Overall just took it easy.

I probably should've checked on the cheese room to get ahead on some things (and clean shit I left in the sink). But I just wanted a single day to myself without going in there, for once. Like I had off on thursday but even that ended up with me in there doing shit. So when taking out the trash, I noticed that there was something like 9 buckets left outside the front door :))))))) haha, that's tomorrow's problem, lemme play Tales of Xillia some more. 

Which, fyi, I like more than Zestiria, but idk man. I always feel some kinda way about talking about when a company stops giving a shit about the kinds of stories they're writing, because 90% the point is just to sell the product. Which they do quite well. So it's like, they put together some story and it just so happens to have the right elements that just >click< for me. But then they put other stories together and they just seem like some bullshit nonsense. And usually THOSE stories feel targetted towards dudes, which is confusing because wasn't the other story targetted at dudes as well? How does one story work well for me when the other is an almost complete miss?

And the thing is, I like Milla, but from what I've seen, she doesn't nearly have the same depth as Tear, Natalia, or Anise. And maybe that's partly due to the fact that Milla is more of a walking trope than a fleshed out character. Which, from Symphonia onward, feels like how they've been writing all their characters. This is more pronounced in Zestiria than Xillia, but that doesn't speak well for the Tales of franchise considering that Xillia came out several years ago and Zestiria is a more recent release :/.

About the only thing I appreciated was buying a DLC addon for Milla because I hate her outfit so god damn much. It's an easter egg outfit that another character from the Tales of series wore at some point, but I can't remember who Dhaos is so it's not that jarring imo. 

Anyway, I gotta go fold my laundry.
