afer ventus or the river sings backwards

This is a PEN!

Some things I meant to post about the past three days, but didn't:

I finally beat New Super Mario Bros. Wii last Monday, followed by Super Mario Galaxy last Tuesday. Yay!

Yesterday, pathvain_aelien, Stephen, and I went to see Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. 'Twas interesting! I was kinda surprised by how many things in the movie reminded me of Mario: 1) the fireballs Hades threw looked kinda like the ones Fire Mario throws, 2) Percy's winged shoes reminded me of the Wing Cap from Super Mario 64, and 3) there was one scene in Las Vegas where a Mario Bros. arcade machine was actually in the background. Usually, you don't get that many Mario references out of anything about Greek mythology. ;)
