   So about the modifying the post . . .
Umm . . . would you guys hate me if I wrote a non "night before" poem for Christmas and changed it up into a New Years' poem of a different style?

'Cause Rock Band just came into EB last evening and I just picked it up this afternoon . . . I think I'm gonna be busy for a little bit . . .

   Christmas 2007 . . . everyone, hold onto your butts . . .
I promise, the recap of my day post will come at some point. But don't worry, I haven't completely failed in my annual tradition:

Kurisumasu No Mae Yoru Degozaimasu...

I'll erase this message once I do it - I'll try to write my annual thingy during the day instead of the night before.

Meantimes, Merry Christmas, y'all. I wish you all the best.

   Two Things . . .
One: Where the hell is Rock Band?! Why hasn't EB received it yet?! Grr . . .

Two: Kamehameha contests in New Zealand. I feel like we should do something like this for our site, similar to the Haruhi thing:

And now all y'all need to see this guy from a different venue, same event . . . it's insane:

Whether we do it here or not, I'm definitely making a video montage at Sakura-Con!

In other news, went for sushi with stupid Ed and his sister last night. Then we played Guitar Hero 2 at my place. It was good times.

Hope you guys are all hangin' in there alright. Only two days to go . . . crikes, when did it become only 2 days to go?!

   Ohhhhh, Adult Swim, have you finally noticed?
So I've been watching Death Note on Adult Swim's website the past couple months. Since they started showing it a week before YTV, their episodes have been newer every Friday. So, every Friday I watch Death Note online, completely amazed that they never got around to blocking connections from outside the USA . . .

. . . I think they finally caught on this week, 'cause now every time I try to watch videos on AS's website I get redirected to their homepage. Damnit.

Good job, Adult Swim, you may have just forced me to take less justified means for watching Death Note . . . good job . . . . . you've just promoted internet piracy. Probably.

Or I'll just wait 'til next week. But I'll hate it . . .

   About my chosen career decision . . .
So yes, as Miss Anonymous has so excellently pointed out, a technical writers "are professional writers who design, create, maintain and update many types of technical documentation, online help, user guides, white papers, design specifications, and other documents."

Basically, any time a company has to write their guides, instructions, manuals, or even their website content - they get technical writers. A lot of times they're already people specialised in the subject matter (so say . . . a software engineer who does technical writing about a new computer program). But, in the cases where the specialists don't know jack squat about writing coherently (the basic point of technical writing is to make the super-techy language understandable to a wider base), they'll hire someone who can translate for them.

That said, I'll need to learn more about the tech-type stuff in question . . .

There's definitely openings around town for that if I can find 'em . . . my biggest problem'll be that the BIG companies generally want to hire someone who's already had a couple years' experience in technical writing . . . this'll be the big pain to get past.

A lot of technical writers work freelance on a contractual basis. I'd prefer to work in-company (again, for the purposes of steady work). But that said, if I CAN get steady work, it'd mean I'm finally writing professionally . . .

. . . and then of course, if I can't find work in the next 3 weeks, I can always go back to the career place and register in the Job-Finding Club . . .

. . . and that's another step towards my dream job of writing my own personal stuff some day . . .

. . . . . so yeah, it goes without saying that theOtaku.com is on my resume right now.

Anyway, let's celebrate my ability to actually make a freakin' decision! Let's watch some more Stephen Chow!!!

So yeah . . . anyone wanna hire a technical writer? I'm willing to work for $30,000 right now . . .

   Eventful weekend . . .
Well, thanks all for the input. And yeah, the HDTV idea was one I thought of at one point too . . . problem is, the basement would require a pretty decent-sized tv to fill the space and . . . y'know, that requires more money than I have allotted. So I'll keep thinking for that one.

So what have I been doing the past many days . . . I played Call of Duty 4 online for the first time this week and I love it. Very fun. If anyone has/gets a PS3 in the next while, you need to get CoD4 . . . heh, we can start a clan! THAT on the Sony network!!!

On Saturday I went to a party hosted by people I hadn't seen in a long while - the one girl (actually, she was "Gandalf" from way back when, if you were around to know what I'm talking about) and I had known each other since we were 5 - same 3 schools all the way through. So yeah, she and her sisters put on a party . . . it was good times. Near the end when fewer people were there I ended up teaching the three of them armbar takedowns ('cause you never know) . . . . . man, good times . . .

And now I'm here putting together Christmas presents for far away people. Fun. And I'm a horrible person because I'm wrapping all the "distance" gifts in newspaper . . . bwahaha . . .

Anything else going on?

Step-dad gave all of us a $500 ceiling request for Christmas (so that "we can get something we really want").

Brother's going with a new iPod. Makes sense.

I got nothin'. Generally don't like to ask for gaming/movie type stuff since I can do that on my own anyway (not to mention they ALREADY covered that pretty well for my birthday). I also don't wanna ask for any kind of computer upgrade-type stuff because my machine's already probably on its last legs of modernity, and any changes now won't really do much in the long run.

The best I've come up with so far is a new winter jacket because my old one really isn't that good (not gore-tex, not especially well insulated, etc.); those are relatively cheap, though.

I've also done enough travelling. We'll leave that as it is.

So you all knowing me, what do I want for Christmas?

   ENFP . . .
Did a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator yesterday. That was fun . . .

Did some Christmas shopping as well. Also kinda fun (found parking really easily).

Last questions to people whose mailing addresses I have:
-Have you seen Haruhi?
-Have you seen Evangelion?

The rest, I'll figure out within the week, I hope . . .
