2 quickies

1. Yeah, so the apartment wasn't quite all we'd hoped. Aside from it being a ground-floor job, with heating pipes sticking out everywhere and an unimpressive remodeling, it was also an incredibly long walk from the subway - much too long for Kath's foot, at any rate. Kath really put it best, when we got home: "This is the apartment that I'm going to be pregnant in." That goes a long way towards the sort of perspective we need to have. It's also fucking SCARY, because it's TRUE.

2. I haven't played more than an hour or so of Jade Empire, but I can already tell that it's going to be AWESOME. If you enjoyed KOTOR, you'll have absolutely no problem getting into JE. If you didn't play KOTOR, you should, but JE is as user-friendly as any game I've played in a long time. I'll put up more detailed impressions when I've given it a bit more time, but I'm just giving the initial heads-up - it's pretty goddamned impressive.
