Mine is a cropped image of the The Fool tarot card. I'm on a journey man.

And yeah, I do identify people by their avatars. It's why I don't change mine much.

I've always had dogs around me growing up, but never cats. I have a cat and dog allergy but being constantly around them has lessened my reaction greatly towards dogs, but not towards cats. My gran had a HUGE bullmastiff and I used to ride on its back as a kid.

Right now I have two dogs, Poppy and Lucy. Someone threw Poppy in a garbage bin when she was a pup and my dad saved her when he heard her whimpering. Lucy was going to get drowned with her brothers and sisters but we took the lot off the guy and tried to give them all as good a home as we could, cept for Lucy, of course, who we kept.

I know i'll probably have a dog constantly through my life, as it just doesn't feel the same without one.

Went and seen Tron yesterday, and I'm not that big a fan of the original so I was expecting to be bored.

And I wasn't.

So, that's good. I'll probably never see it again though.

I've bought Faith of the Fallen, so I will see how similar to Anthem it is.

I also bought "Perdido Street Station" in case it is as warped as Ayn Rand's waffle.

I havn't actually listened to a hell of a lot of new music this year. My tastes are so peculiar and eclectic I rarely find more than a few good artists a year.

Joanna Newsom - Have One on Me
Fascinating Aida - Silver Jubilee
Zoe Keating - Into The Trees
Evelyn Evelyn (Amanda Palmer & Jason Webley) - Evelyn Evelyn
Queen of Denmark - John Grant
Dogmatic Infidel Comedown OK - IAMX

There was a part in the episode that very much reminded me of "Sherlock". Maybe Steven Moffat writing that seeped into Dr. Who :P

speed through it? Why man? If he's enjoying it let him search the nooks and crannies. God knows there are plenty.

Dr. Who got a thumbs up from me.

I was nervous at first but then it was alllll good.

Yoda's picture takes me back to my childhood.

Now, if you don't mind I'm going out for my traditional Chinese Christmas dinner.

Day 1: Well, I picked my party's Jobs and named them. Meet:

Star: Monk
Hugh: White Mage
Dice: Red Mage
Yoda: Black Mage

I don't know how Hugh will feel about being the sissy white mage job, but I felt it would have been a bit sexist to make
Dice the White Mage. It's a shame the Thief class in this game is worse than awful, because I actually enjoy having thieves
in my party. Maybe it is because of Zidane from FF9, where stealing could net you some awesome treasure.

Anyway, the game begins talking about some prophecy mumbo-jumbo, I'm sure you guys will know what it says even without
playing the game. Planets elements weakening, warriors of light, crystals yada-yada. I start out immediately on the world map
infront of some large city. Apparently it's called Cornelia and some random woman in town informs me that it is the City of Dreams

Aww. Precious.

The music in this town is really nice and relaxing and - HOLY SHIT. I found the dash button, run little man, run! Haha, look at his little legs.
In the Inn there are a bunch of dwarfs who want to teach me about gameplay. I told them "What do I look like, a fucking amateur?" and then
ran out the door at a speed no normal human should be able to walk. There is also a small church, but all that lies inside
is a lone priest having a rave.

Spent 400 of the 500 gil I started out with in the magic shops.

Hugh got: Cure

Dice got: Fire

Yoda got: Fire

Now that I got all my magic sorted I should go get some equipment. Wow, weapons are super cheap. Gonna give Dice a Rapier and Yoda a Staff.
Hugh can keep his staff and I'm going to be fighting BARE HANDED bitches.Picked up a couple of Leather Armour's for me and Dice. I find it suspect that
the Item Shop is run by a Thief. What they hell! Potions cost more than all my weapons combined! That bastard really IS a thief.

Now that I'm all geared up, I go up to see the king. Apparently I already have the 4 crystals, which was weird because I thought my job would
be going off to collect them. Score! Half the game completed already.

So, turns out the King wants me to go rescue his daughter, the princess, Sarah. She got abducted by some knight. Funny thing though
the Knight's name is Garland, who is a bad guy from FF9 and also Sarah is Garnet's real name in FF9. Hey! Now that I think of it
Garnet also played a character called "Cornelia" in the play at the start of the game. Man, I'm on a role.

Pft, when I ran around looking for loot in the castle, I find that the treasure room is locked by some mystic key. What a jip. Turns out
some Elf King has it, I'm gonna kick his ass and take that key.

Well, as the castle guards have kindly informed me, Garland is hiding in the Chaos Shrine! Woo! Random battle. Man that is a lot of goblins.

*4246 Goblins Later*

Okay, I thought this was the Chaos Shrine, but apparently this is the Earthgift Shrine. At the end of the corridor is the petrified corpse of a demon
If I don't have to fight that thing later in the game, I'll eat my hat. Or CastNuri's hat. I don't have any hats and she has hats to spare.

*9999 Goblins later*

I am now at the REAL Chaos shrine. I kind of miss the Goblins. Now I have to contend with worms, zombies and wolves. At least Hugh got a chance to put Dia to some use.
Dice's Sleep spell has been surprisingly useful, compared to other Final Fantasy games. It took me a long time to find Garland, as he had chosen to hide in
the most dastardly place he could. THE FIRST ROOM YOU SEE AS YOU ENTER THE DUNGEON. Oh well, BOSS FIGHT!

*Victory Tune Plays*

Success! I was actually expecting him to be one of those fights where the story dictates that you lose on purpose, but aparrently not. Finest Swordsman in the land, my ass!
With that, I save the Princess and we go back to Cornelia Where the King rewards us handsomely and we all live happily ever after.


Kidding, the King merely says that we have proven we are the 4 Warriors of Light and commissions* us to restore the light to the 4 crystals.

*I say commission, he actually gives us sweet fuck all for saving his daughter. Ungrateful bastard.

Well, this seems like a good place to wrap up!

Join me next time, where I will be crossing a bridge. Exciting stuff.
