So, am I the only one who has all 4 of his wisdom teeth still in?
I had all four of mine removed when I was 14 or something like that. Two of them were coming in straight, but they wanted to remove them as well to keep my top and bottom teeth even. While they were at it, they removed four other teeth because I had braces at the time because of overcrowding. Apparently I have a small mouth and thus have 8 less teeth than you?

I feel weird having 8 more teeth than someone else my age.
TBF, a guy in my office has no teeth at all.  His are false, and he's about my age, too.  No idea how that happened.

@Dincrest - I wonder that same thing (about myself) all the time!

it basically removes any difficulty from the game

This sounds bad, at first, but then I remember how discouraged I get with Trails' absurdly long, grindy, required superbosses.  I think I'll implement your suggestions at some point.

Double-post: Discovery continues to both celebrate and throw off its Star Trek heritage.  I'm so conflicted about it.  Undeniably good storytelling, but it sometimes feels like it just really hates every other Star Trek show that came before it.

Wedding was awesome. We had it in our backyard.  Which seemed like a great idea until someone clogged both of our toilets and it turned into a literal shit show.

Trails in the Sky, the 3rd

Heading toward the latter 1/3 or so of the game.  In the 6th "stratum" or whatever.  Been cycling people in and out of my party a lot.  Just got to the part where you...
Spoiler: show
fight Cassius Bright

...and it was ridiculous.  Seriously ridiculous.  I was not prepared for that and died twice.  My first two game overs.  On the 3rd attempt, though, I had kinda figured out the proper strategy, but...  is there a working strategy that doesn't involve perfectly timing Kevin's Grail Sphere?
I have to say, though, that finishing him with a 200CP Sakura Morning Moon from Richard was one of my most epic moments in the game.

The battle beforehand with...
Spoiler: show
General Morgan

...was dangerous by virtue of him just being the cheapest, cheating-est boss in the trilogy, but I still won on my first attempt.

My party for "The Big Fight" was Kevin and Richard, of course, with Anelace and Ries.

Who else here got Anelace's special weapon from her sidestory?  I regret that I didn't really use her during the portion of the game where that weapon was really overpowered.  Oh well.

I'd imagine it's interesting to have an artbook in audio form.

I have had a disturbing revelation.  I ordered food earlier this evening and ordered two Snapples with my meal.  When they arrived, they came in plastic bottles.  To say I was disturbed by this ominous development would be an understatement.  Their glass bottles were iconic.  I hate that they switched in order to save money. ;_; :_; ;_;

Dude, I haven't had a Snapple Peach Tea in forever until Saturday, where I made the same disturbing discovery as you did.  This is awful.  Glass keeps it colder.

Also, @Starmongoose , I really like those cupcakes.  For some reason, I like the Gysahl Greens ones the best.

Dunno if you've seen Episode 3 Arvis, but I'd recommend you check it out if you haven't.

I definitely will, but still gonna wait until it's on Netflix/Prime.

For now, catching up on Season 3 of Dark Matter and keeping up with Discovery.

In our day, we would throw refrigerator magnets. ;)

Ok, now, see, that sounds hilarious and harmless.  That would make me laugh and brighten my day.

Depending on what the image on the magnet was, that is.

Katamari Damacy - Lonely Rolling Star

A guilty favorite of mine even though I've never actually played the game.

Finally done with my last round of Star Trek TNG novels and started Jane Austen's Emma.  Right away I am enjoying luxuriating in Austen's mastery of the English language.  Sometimes "economy of words" is overrated if it means missing out on all the hilarious nuance of the 18th century English upper class.

Coffee at home only for the rest of my life, thanks for that.  I hope your wedding goes well, that you and your mate will always treat each other with love and respect at all time irrespective of your emotions, and that she accidentally punches you in her sleep as repercussion for your cockroach comment.
