Wish List

  • I didn’t get up at 2am for the launch so missed out on this Tomopu plush at San-X. Please restock!
  • Obviously I need some stationery cats washi tape by Coco Glez
  • I love Lizzy House’s ghosts, especially when holding a sad strawberry
  • File under things I definitely don’t need – a little plush Kirby bag.

Into It!

I finished the Sega edition of Picross (and discovered I know like 1 Sega game that doesn’t feature Sonic the Hedgehog) but luckily the other Picross games were on sale so I can go straight into S4. I also downloaded the demo of Kirby and the Forgotten Land and screamed my way through it. Kirby turning into a car, vending machine etc. is just hilarious. It’s also pretty fun and easy so I’ll be tempted to buy it if it ever goes on sale.
