I zipped (i.e. fast forwarded to the cool bits I remember) through most of RoboTech - Macross Saga (for old times sake) and then switched over to Kenshin for a bit before I called it a night. I was pleased with both sets of DVDs. I do need to warm up a bit to Kenshin though. It's got very cool stories, but I'm not totally into some of the humorous bits. I suspect this may just be a question of getting used to how abruptly the transitions happen and the generaly style though. Despite that slight disconnect, I've enjoyed all the episodes I've watched so I'm really glad I did get the series.
Of course I still have something like 90+ episodes to watch so I'm going to be watching this for a while. However, I don't think I can handle sitting still for so long on a regular basis... and more to the point I'd rather avoid situations that make me feel like I'm sliding towards impending Jabba-ness ;). I was actually thinking I could take RoboTech downstairs and watch it while using the erg. I figure 85 eps should probably last me through two-three months of workouts. Then follow up workouts with an episode of Kenshin while I cool down.
Yeah, sad I know, but given how massive both series are (and how into them I could get) I think it would be too easy for me to really spud-out if I don't make myself work it into my current workout routine.
In other news, it looks like the real estate deal is on track. The option period (i.e. the buyer pays you a small amount of $$ so that they can change their mind for X days w/o penalty) expired at midnight last night and I haven't heard anything (and in this case no news is good news). So today I need to make some calls and look into some of the stuff we want to get done now that we'll (hopefully) actually have some amount of liquidity in a few weeks.
