Not a whole lot has happened since my last entry. My con crud has been in full swing and it's been good to have a few quiet days anyway.

Spent my first and only full day in Kansas City being a couch zombie for the most part. A few of us went out to lunch at a Japanese/Chinese/Vietnamese place. The sushi I had was omnomilicious, but I didn't like the pho. Stopped by a gamer household where they were in the middle of playing something. Went to a MicroCenter where this conversation occurred and I picked up a Wacom tablet for $70 (can't get it working under Ubuntu).

WolfWings' housemate drove me around downtown KC before we grabbed burritos for dinner. I have to admit, some parts of it looked quite nice, and if I dug around a bit I probably could have found things to do to keep me entertained for a few days, but it didn't appear to have much for tourists to do and it reminded me way too much of Brisbane. So I decided to GFTO the following day and caught the train to St Louis.

I'm glad I caught the train because the scenery was rather dull, plus when it hit dusk I couldn't see anything anyway. Unfortunately, I spent a lot of the trip playing "catch the cell signal", so I was without internet access for most of the trip. D= It did give me ample time to write up my roadtrip post.

[livejournal.com profile] buran met me at the train station and we had dinner at a pizza place. First pizza of the trip! Whoa. Not counting that slice I had at FC. The pizza was reasonable. I wouldn't say amazing.

First day in St Louis: slept in, watched Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (which exceeded my expectations, but then I thought the book was by far the worst in the series), and had dinner with Buran, Snowdog, and Buran's parents at Lonestar, because I wanted to have steak at least once whilst in the midwest.

Second day in St Louis: slept in, then went shopping. I discovered that there's a Dance Dance Revolution for the PS3. According to Wikipedia, it was released last October. Went to the local GameStop and they didn't have it. The first sales assistant said I could place it on order. I decided not to, and we wandered around the mall for a bit (wayyy too many fashion outlets, little else of interest). Came back to GameStop and talked to a different sales assistant who informed me that DDR won't come out until May. D'oh! I picked up some DDR games for the PS2 anyway (Max, Max 2 and Extreme 2). I HOPE I can get it all working when I get back home. I'm probably going to preorder DDR for PS3. I need to find out if it's being released in Australia, although it shouldn't be a problem if I bought it from the US anyway.

Last night, Snowdog, Buran and I had dinner at Olive Garden. It's my second time at that restaurant. They serve you way too much food, but it's reasonably tasty at a reasonable price. And I fell asleep watching Wrath of Khan.

I've certainly been getting plenty of sleep here! Tomorrow I fly back to LA then I'll catch the ferry across to Catalina to spend the rest of my vacation there. Looking forward to that!
