So I just realized I didn't even write a journal about what happened recently.
I don't feel comfortable putting it at the end of my journal, so I'll say it immediately.
Not long ago, Satoru Iwata, the president of Nintendo of Japan passed away. I found out while I was eating breakfast at my computer. My bagel was part-way in my mouth, I had to put it down because the tears just came out so suddenly and naturally. It's a sad day for the gaming world.
By now everyone knows, but I'd just like to say I'm aware. I wonder who will be the new president.
Also, around the time Nemeaux had passed away, we discovered our other cat Fluffy had developed a malignant tumor on his liver. He was already at least nineteen-years-old, and surgery would cost several thousands of dollars. We got him some medication with the hope to make his last few months a bit more comfortable, but he just got worse. None of the medication appeared to make a difference. We made the unpleasant decision to have Fluffy put-down. I'm just glad I got to be there when he passed. I wasn't there for Nemeaux.
The only kitty left is my cat, Bobo. He's only about three, and very clearly healthy. So, no worries there. Bobo lives with me at my dad's house, Fluffy and Nemeaux lived with my mom, so there are no cats at her house any more. I had to live without cats for two months once, and it was insufferable. My mom says she won't get anymore cats, but soon she will realize the absolute anguish that it is to be catless.
Of course by some sick coincidence, I was scheduled to work six closing shifts in a row. Needless to say, I became very irritable. I don't like getting mad, but sometimes it's hard to suppress the fury.
I suppose on a slightly lighter note, I figured out how to change Wonder-Red's expression in Source Filmmaker. Seeing him smile for the first time in SFM was a special moment for me.
Also, since I've been stuck at work, I haven't had any opportunity to spend any money, so I've managed to accumulate quite a bit. So, that's comforting.
I have to bring in my car for routine maintenance, though. I hope they don't find anything wrong with it.
