Random Thoughts VI

In the Legend of Zelda game series, why does everyone think Link always wins? Sure he 'defeats' Ganon(dorf) but he dies later at an unspecified point and must be reincarnated, whereas Ganon just escapes and tries again. Zelda also dies. If this always happens, shouldn't it follow that Ganon will always return, but Link will one day fail to appear. If the Goddesses don't intervene soon enough, e.g. Windwaker, then with the Triforce he could achieve the powers of a god himself. Therefore, Ganon has yet to lose. Except in Windwaker, Zelda II, and Twilight Princess... but there are about a million ways for them to get him to return. Seriously, do they think we like Vaati? Or Majora? Or that Squid of Doom, Bellum? Or Onyx? Or Veran? Or the Nightmares? ... Maybe killing Tingle would be fun for a while.

My bookshelf at a glance.

Yes, I'm sure you're wondering what my bookshelf looks like. The picture below is probably what most of you would imagine.

(No, I am not mentally ill. Much.)

But the amount of blood upon ones bookshelf is not representative of its value. No, that lies in the tomes upon it. On my bookshelf I have a shelf organization system that works as follows;

  1. Books I absolutely cannot live without.

  2. Long series I absolutely cannot live without.

  3. Books that would cause me to become comatose if I lost.

  4. Good books.

  5. Everything else. Books I'll read every few years or less.

My top shelf is also like a 'featured authors' section. This consists of my favorite authors. Tamora Pierce, Jonathan Stroud, Garth Nix, et cetera, and a few 'filler' books. I have some old favorites from my childhood on the second shelf like Deltora Quest, and Redwall. As is evident I have a deep love for fantasy, and the more 'dark' books. Speaking of Dark, I have half a shelf devoted to Poe. In my opinion his poetry was only bested by Dickinson's. I do not, repeat, DO NOT read sci-fi. I am Met's equal opposite in the realms of literature. (Except for Deltora Quest. We both used to love those.)

Ahhhh, Spring... *Vomit*

Ahhh, yes. It's that time of the year again. The children are finishing school to be released on our helpless world, the elder students are attempting to study a school year's worth of material in a few hours, parents and grandparents once again assert their belief that spring cleaning is good for the soul, and deer begin to eat expensive and recently potted plants.

Isn't spring glorious?

Don't you just love how people insist they love the season, due to their preconceived notions, and none of them realize that they're doing nothing but more work than ever before? Such is the perverted nature of humankind. As long as no one expects help I'll live. In related news; buildings ruined by the harsh winter are leaking. Yay spring... Hurricane season is starting. Yay... spring... rabid squirrel attacks are beginning. Yay! Spring!

Finally, I need more to post about than how everything is annoying. Ideas are welcome.

Finally-er, I will attempt to resume my nearly consistent daily posting.
