It's -10 degrees celsius outside. The people on the news can't stop talking about ice skating. My tree is screwed. WTF is wrong with you nature?

Anyway, I don't have any jobs right now, so I'm thinking of walking to the next town the long way round to deliver some pocky to adorable little S. and J. Just the idea of walking through the cold (but it's nice and sunny with clear skies!) will annoy people, so it'll be totally worth it. It's probably good exercise too. But meh, who cares about that?

You own hundreds of RPGs for this generation of consoles and heldhelds? Yeah, I'm not going to believe that unless you list them.

That said, Xenoblade is really, really, really awesome. It fixes a lot of things people hate about JRPGs while holding on to that dorky JRPG charm.

It'd help if it didn't have that stupid attempt at keeping you from fighting higher leveled enemies via MISSING all the time if you're more than 5 levels under. I can't imagine when that's seriously relevant in the game anyway, earlier on most enemies with that kind of difference will crush you, and in the end game, well, it's the END GAME. Either you just want to hurry up and beat it, or to fully explore the world and not try figuring out the exact path the developers intended.

Actually, you can hit them consistently if your agility is high enough. Topple is helpfull too. Dunban is an excellent choice for battles like that. I think I used a team of Melia, Dunban and Sharlia... or was it Shulk? Anyway, have Melia summon wind for the agility boost and keep Dunban healed while he hacks away at the enemy.

LOL, I LOVE Jade, he's one of my favorite characters in any game, arrogant, powerful, smart-ass, gotta love 'em!

Fine... keep it.  I proud tout my Tear PVC... the sculptor liked doing her breasts too much though... =/

One thing i love about Jade: the game is his fault, essentially.

Yep, and it all started when he tried to cheer up his little sister by replicating her favourite doll.

Karma's a bitch.

Anyway, really cool present! I want some of those too. Especially Jade.

I need an owl plush and my stuffed-toy collecting days are over. :P

My dad made me an owl plush once! Actually, he made like a dozen. He was in the hospital (after a very manly accident involving large machines and incompetent coworkers) and got bored. He's also made me a teddy bear and a tiny polar bear in the past. I kinda wish he'd start making stuffed animals again. He's been moping around the house ever since he was forced to retire...

I wouldn't mind having a new owl, since the old ones are all gone. All I have left is Waffie, Mr. Chu-chu and a dolphin little S. gave me when he had to get rid of some of his stuffed animals (he had like 300 at the age of 3, it was ridiculous). It's incredibly soft and the perfect size to use as a make shift pillow. I've got like four proper pillows on my bed, but that dolphin is more comfortable.

Konami going with the lowest bidder on a translation is nothing new and not even related to games.  That's just business.  You go with the best deal.

Yep. This is basically what every company that ever uses freelancers does. You grab the cheapest one and treat him/her like shit because freelancers are easily replacable.

I've had some experiences like that myself. "Well, according to guidelines the payment deadline is in 45 days, so we'll pay you after that. If you don't like it you can quit." And you don't quit, because even if you have to wait 60 days for your money, it's still money you need. Plus, working freelance is often the only way to go if you want to do certain types of work.

Why do you stuffed animals still look so good? My Waffie looks really miserable compared to those... He's lost both of his ears, his tongue, most of his fur, mom put in new stuffing twice, my cousin ripped him in two once...

Ah, wait, I've got one I can post!

This is Mr. Chu-Chu. Papa bought him for my younger sister when we were planning to move far away for his job. It's a good thing my mom had a little mental breakdown and the whole moving thing didn't happen, because the company went under barely a year later. Mr. Chu-Chu is a reminder of a horrible what could have been. He's also very soft and has served as our loyal pillow for reading for over 15 years.

I'm a Dragon!! :D
Take that Rats, Rabbits, Sheep, and whatever other animals my zodiac-creature could eat in one bite.

I'm a tiger, that's cool too, right?

Anyway, tired from a very fun and productive weekend. I made some really cute bloblike amigurumi animals, decided on a design for an amigurumi workshop, taught someone how to knit and made some My Little Pony-themed friendship bracelets.

Wow, that's expensive! I think it woudl be worth it to shop around, because I've seen some other stores charge €55-€70 for the limited edition.

Edit: never mind, looks like Zavvi dropped the price to something normal.

For the longest time I tried to organise a gettogether for the members of our doujincraftcirclethingy. Even though we only have five members it was incredibly difficult. After weeks of switching dates, we finally settled on today. I prepared for everything and even arranged a (surprise!) birthday cake for someone, because her birthday was yesterday. It's a frog. She loves frogs. Then her grandmother died. Another member got sick and canceled at the last moment.

Stuff like this happens every time. I guess I'm just glad I'm not the one who has to cancel this time...

I didn't think it was possible, but my rabbit is a tsundere.

Today I tried a different fried rice recipe with peas, spring onion, curry powder, garlic and fresh coriander. It turned out okay, but I don't think I will make it again. You can't go wrong with rice, peas and onion, but I'm just not a fan of curry powder. I've got plenty of rice left, does anyone have a good idea for tomorrow? I'm poor, so I prefer cheap ingredients. Oh, and spicy stuff. Spicy food is the best!

Nah, he's in his fifties, but S. recently saw a picture of him when he was younger. Back then dad had shoulderlength hair just like I have now. We figured he was refering to that, because he normally says my dad looks like Santa (which he does) and I do not look like Santa! I hope. That one time I did one of those 'what celebrity do you look like' tests that uses photo's, my best match was Tolstoj...

Little S. (3) got mad when I took off my glasses to show the frame is made of this neat titanflex stuff "Put your glasses back on, you look like uncle C.!" Uncle C. being my dad. Who also wears glasses. And has a beard. Yeah...

I'm starting to think that I may not actually be a short, skinny blonde girl, but that I'm in fact a darkhaired guy in his mid thirties or something. That'd would explain why a friend keeps encouraging me to cosplay Raven from ToV.
