Roll, roll, roll

I’m eating breakfast down the street from my apartment at Crema because

  1. sitting in a cafe with a latte and a laptop makes me feel cool
  2. we ran out of milk, so I couldn’t have my usual rice crispies
  3. I just bought a copy of Katamari Damacy, and I was starting to consider playing “just one game” before work, until I remembered that this never ever ever works, and so it might be a good idea to get out of the apartment quickly

Katamari is a really fun game, with a completely goofy concept. You roll things (candy, cats, cucumbers, etc) into a big sticky ball to replace the stars your father, the King of All Cosmos, knocked out of the sky one night while drunk. There are little interludes showing block-headed children asking Mommy if what they heard on the news is true, that the stars are all gone. When your ball picks up animals, they keep wiggling and chirping or meowing or barking, which is funny to watch, but you’re so busy trying to pick up more things that you only notice for a moment.
