Daily Update #1

Well it feels like it’s been a long day, but that might be more due to work.  So it’s actually a rather slow start to this project.  On with the update!

Word of the Post: Quondam.  It means “that once was” or “former”.  I think it’s similarity to the term “Gundam” made me look into it, and I think it’s an awesome word.  Although I’ll probably never use it (seeing as I’ve never heard anyone use it!).

Info of the Post: http://zidbits.com/2011/04/whats-the-most-lethal-poison/  Well I figured I’d start with an end.  Death.  Oh dear.  Maybe not the best choice!  I think it’s a pretty interesting article, fairly simple and short enough that it only takes a minute or two to take in.  I don’t think I’ve even heard of Polonium, but I shall be avoiding it now!

News of the Post: Well this one was difficult.  I did read the news, but nothing was overly interesting.  So I’ve ventured a bit further afield here, and shall now provide 3 news articles!

General News: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-25709414  – So… I somehow missed this when I’d been looking at news during the day.  I’ve heard of killings over disputes in other games/sports, but I think this is the first chess-related murder I’ve seen.

Anime News: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2014-01-12/3rd-madoka-magica-film-blu-ray-to-have-english-subtitles  – I am quite happy about this, because it means that Japan are translating anime themselves.  So maybe we’ll get more releases over here, and hopefully a little cheaper.

Gaming News: http://www.computerandvideogames.com/444845/capcom-dev-says-next-gen-games-require-10-times-the-work-of-current-gen-ones/  – This feels more like common sense, I guess.  Mostly because I feel that when a new console is released, it’s going to take a lot more time to get used to it than the games they were previously making.  And a few other things.  But maybe I’m just making it a lot more simple than it is.  Oh well.  Still interesting to read.

I think it’s also worth noting that in the news, there was an article about womb transplants, which is really significant.  Its definitely a step in the right direction, and I wish all those who took part in the trial the best of luck for the future!

Now back to the update.  I’ve not found a new food to eat this week yet, and the film is on it’s way from amazon (more on that once I actually receive it) so a quick update on the game/book project.  I’ve not actually started Origin of Species (going to start as soon as I’ve finished writing this), and Kingdom Hearts will now wait till tomorrow.  In Kingdom Hearts, I’ve pretty much left Destiny Island.  And got lost a lot.  I spent way too long looking for mushrooms.  To give an idea, if you search Kingdom Hearts Destiny Island, the top result for the next word is mushrooms.  Sneaky things…

So that’s all for today.  Hope everyone else has had a great day and wish you all the best for tomorrow!
