On Sunday, I was hanging out over at the guys' house playing the coolest game for the PS2 - Katamari Damacy. No really, it's cool. Basically your goal is to roll around a ball (your "katamari"), while you roll it around things that are smaller than it stick to it and it grows. As it grows larger it can pick up larger things. You start with tacks, memory cards, etc., and work you way up to cats and dogs and children and people and cows and cars and buildings and cities. Seriously, it's cool, but you don't have to take my word for it, check out the reviews on Amazon.

Well, while I was over there fending off the urge to do my homework, and I got a call from my dear little sister. She was on her way to Missoula! As is almost tradition, we went out for sushi. It's addicting. Then she took off for my parent's house. My dad was going to help her change her oil before she left for Portland. She's off to do some spring break snowboarding at Mount Hood. Fun, fun! I told her that she should check out Powell's bookstore while she's there. Not that I've been there, but everyone raves about it.

Yep, she's already on spring break, and we don't have it for another week and a half here at the 'ol U of M. But when we do, I've decided to go to the Canyonlands.

I think you still call it a soundtrack...

I was just telling someone the other day that you could buy the soundtrack to this game, because the music is cool and original. Now that I look, it seems that the soundtrack to the original game is only on the Japanese Amazon, but the soundtrack to the sequel "We Love Katamari" is on the U.S. Amazon. There is an album out there that is not the soundtrack, but looks like it would be.

I think we will have this game at the St. Patrick's Day party tomorrow.
