I have the song from the first stage in Ouendan stuck in my head.
For the non-DS/non-Japanese-speaking game fan crowd out there, Ouendan, better known as "Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan!", is a story about a bunch of male cheerleaders who apparently have the power to cheer anyone into doing anything, including passing their exams and getting thinner. It's a rhythm game using the DS stylus, and highly amusing. And disturbing. And stuff.
I'm also procrastinating working on writing again, though I really have to sit down and do it. Things have come up at work that have put more stress on me, so I'm not feeling 'in the mood'. One thing is that my writing time has been de-localized from the morning - I now tend to do it whenever I feel like it, but I also try to get work done in the mornings, which has been giving me the feeling that I've been working on it all the time. And the fact that genedefect has joined the ranks of the Live Arcade addicts and has been distracting me endlessly with strangely hypnotic games like Bejeweled and Geometry Wars and Zuma, hasn't been helping.
I also just feel bloody sick.
Argh. I'm getting places, but outlining is so freaking slow. I need to be more willing to just throw ideas out and see how they fit, but I've been having significant difficulties with that. I'm tempted to jump to GG to make sure that I'm not forgetting how to write prose.
