Yeah, that's a whole lot of Kirby! I really wasn't looking forward to doing that directory, but it actually wasn't too bad. Most of the descriptions were pretty short, and I didn't spend much effort looking for pics as a lot of them are impossible to find anyway. I did change the profiles so that the ones without pictures would display a message asking the viewer to let me know if they had a image for it.

Wow, so I've been updating a lot this week! What is going on?! Well Treese has started working out in the mornings so she's awake for about 15 minutes when she gets home from work before she falls asleep, so I've been using that time to try getting caught up on all the back profiles. I've now finished everything prior to April 1, 2004. Still, it seems like I've already received more profiles this month than any other month. I don't know, I guess it could just be my imagination. Anyway, I'm not going to be keeping up this rate for very much longer, so I don't know if I'll ever get totally caught up. Still, it really doesn't matter that much, and I'm learning a lot about anime that I haven't seen yet.

We had a little storm last night which knocked out our power around 1:45-2:00 AM. I was working on profiles at the time, but luckily I have my computer on an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). Still, they're not made to last forever, so I had to shut down and head to bed. I finished up things up this morning, so that's why yesterday's updates were uploaded this morning.

Treese and I caught the last showing of Hellboy with Victor this evening. It was pretty good, some nice action, cool attitude, awesome characters, and some really good one-liners. It was a little slow in parts, there wasn't as much variety with monsters as I was expecting, and I wasn't sure why the Nazi's wanted to completely destroy the world, but overall it was fun and entertaining.
