Usually 1-2 hours and 1-2 sittings a day. But if there's a game I need to review and I'm really, really into it, I might play up to 10 hours a day. Technically it's work, so I have an excuse.

Ugh, looks like the dentist is going to charge me for that x-ray they shouldn't have made. Their little mistake will cost me nearly €40. That's three weeks worth of food. Or a videogame. Assholes.

Continued the longest Tales of Vesperia playthrough ever. My friend and I started it somewhere last year, playing 2-3 hours every month. Since we were near the end of the first third of the game, I finally got to play as Raven. Raven is awesome. We dressed up Estelle in her nurse outfit and put some angel wings on her so she could pass for a Fluttershy cosplayer. Because we could. Yay!

Tomara, the very same thing is happening here in the U.S. I live in Northern Illinois and the temps have been unseasonably warm. Most people are happy about this, but being the plantsman that I am, I am a bit freaked out. I'm seeing bulbs coming up and buds swelling on trees and shrubs. This is NOT a good thing, and I feel like I'm the only one who cares. A couple days of warmth is no biggie, but when it gets into weeks it causes major issues. The problem is that the inevitable cold will come back and damage all the plants that "thought" it was Spring. It won't kill the plants, but it will lessen the amount of color and growth they put on in this upcoming season.
I'm glad I'm not the only one concerned about it.

Then I'm glad it won't die.

I also noticed there's still fruit on the cherry trees that line the road I always walk when I go to the bakery. It's rotting on the branches but it's still there. Normally the birds would've finished them off months ago. For some reason they don't feel the need to. Or there might be less birds. The types that usually show up in gardens in winter to eat dried fruits and seeds have been strangely absent.

Interesting.  I'd feel the same way, Tomara.

But I wonder, what if it's freezing in March? Will my tree be okay? It's a prunus serrulata (Amanogawa type) and usually blooms in April. Grandfather gave it to us when mom and dad bought their house and is has grown really tall over the years. It's the prettiest tree in the whole neighbourhood and it'd be terrible if it was damaged or died.

All the SMT games are great, not just Persona.  Buy them if you can.

Shadow Hearts is a hinky series.  I personally didn't like the first game, but I've met people who extoll it as the best in the series.  The second game is fantastic, and I can't suggest it enough.  The third game is kinda terrible, but that's mostly because they went full-on goofy mode instead of staying quasi-serious like the previous games; the game itself was still totally solid.

I'm one of those people who liked the first one the most. I have a soft spot for horror stories and a horror RPG was like a dream come true. But horror is not for everyone, I guess. Still, I think you can get most out of the second game by playing the first one too. It's fairly short by RPG standards anyway.

Edit: or read/watch a Let's Play, that'll work too.

That cherry tree I buried Chibi under? It's acting weird. There are buds in it and it looks like it will blossom before the end of the month. I know it's the mild weather screwing with my tree, but still...

Keep in mind I'm a little person so my voice is naturally really high pitched.

Huh? I like your voice and I'm sure mine has a slightly higher pitch (and I'm only short by Dutch standards). Actually, I'm kind of jealous ^_^'  You're a teacher and when I tried to become one, the school advised me to just quit because I would never be hired because of my voice. Nowadays I still avoid podcasts because I don't like the idea of lots of people hearing my voice...  So, uhm, I think you're pretty cool.

Anyway, Lunar! Absolutely love the series! Well, Silver Star and Eternal Blue anyway. Those other games suck.

The specific problem with this is that it LOOKS like i'll be travelling in two week "shifts," alternating with the other coworkers, for the space of two months. At least. It's not "go to X for a few days," it's "spend at least a month living out of a hotel."

My dad had to do that a lot when I was younger. Some parts of the year he was rarely home. According to him, staying in a hotel isn't so bad if it's a decent one and the boss is paying for everything.

My little cousin (7) thinks I'm cool and super strong. That made my day.

'Generic J-pop balled' and 'Kawaii moe girls sing happy happy song' were the worst. I have no idea what they were called. I don't remember them but at the same time I do. These two songs embodied everything that was ever bad about Japanese music.

As for anime songs I do like, stuff like this:

Yes, in fact I do. I had to spend most of the day in a single room at an animecon and the songlist there was barely an hour long. Resonance wasn't even the worst of the bunch. At least it kept us awake in the mornings.

It could be worse. She didn't grow up with Saint Seiya, did she? If she did... well, eh, brace yourself?

I have the PSN Tetris and got confused by all the modes too. Are we just getting old?

It's just not the modes, the whole game has changed the introduction of T-spins, eternal spins and so on. When you've played Tetris a certain way for 15+ years, it's hard to implement new moves in your style.

... So yeah, we're getting old. And in a few days I'll receive a severe beating and lose my title to J. I'll probably be able to get it back next year as I will be the one to pick the challenge, but since it's so obvious my style is old-fashioned, I think I don't deserve to be number one...
