Best Birthday present I have ever had really. A mug printed just for me with a picture of all the characters from my fave game Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7. It may not be a Square Enix special or worth millions of pounds, but I LOVE it as it was made just for me and with my favorite piece of concept art.
And most importantly, it is special as it was a gift from Steve. He can be a pain at times, but he is my pain in the ass frankly and he can be the most thoughtful person at times. A mug printed with Crisis Core motif was THE one thing I didn't have in my collection. I collect Final Fantasy memorabilia, from action figures, books, CD's and of course the games that started the whole thing off. This game has been there in my life for all the major ups, downs and everything in between, ever since I was 10 or 11 years old, it was one of the two, and my brother had brought it home. I used to just watch him play at first, then, when we got our own copy, I began playing it and never stopped. Even though I completed the original Final Fantasy VII game many times to 100%, Crisis Core has been completed at least 3 times I think and Dirge of Cerberus which has been done once or twice.
Its fitting that I spent most of yesterday downloading the Complete edition of Advent Children. The original film itself is incredible, but they added another 30 minutes to the story, including back-story on some of the children of the city, Cloud, Reno and Rude and the epic battle at the end was extended. Much to my excitement (I couldn't stop grinning for ages).
I am finally winning with my infection now and it is finally settling down, lungs are a little worse for wear but I guess that is expected really. I also learned the other purpose for the co-codamol I was taking. Codeine is a cough suppressant and since I started taking it regularly as per my doctor's instructions and that beast of a cough has started to calm right down, I don't crack ribs so often now and the pain is definately not as much of an issue as it was. All in all, things are starting to move forward and I got my Birthday wish.
Love You Muchly
