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.

I've had my fair share of experiences with nutritionists as well and what I want to add is that you shouldn't overthink your diet. You don't want to get sucked in by the details. Planning meals days ahead isn't the right thing to do unless you have complex medical problems. Sure there's a ton of science behind food, but how you experience food is just as important when trying eat better. Eating healthier is a lot easier when you know what you like and take the time to enjoy it.

Besides, there's really no magical good food formula that works for everyone. There are basic things everyone should do like drink plenty of water, but stuff like proper portion size varies from person to person.

Back when I was in high school, I needed a lot of energy to get through the day. Close to 3000kcal. I ate pretty healthy too. Proper meals, but big portions. My friends always made fun of my lunchbox. I lost weight whenever I ate less than that, which is not something I should've be doing at 110-115 pounds. But that's me. Unless you're a professional athlete, you'd probably gain a lot of weight if you ate like a 17 year old me.

I also drink only water and tea most days.

Tea is great and not nearly as boring as most people think. Even when you're on a tight budget like me there are so many flavours to try. I like to start my morning with something fruity, softer green teas are nice for during the day and rooibos with some honey makes for a good treat. Of course, I also drink a lot of regular water, but I can't get through cold days without some nice hot tea.

Also, if you like chocolate, go dark. It is actually good for you in limited quantities. Fiber and anti-oxidants. Plus, it's damn delicious once you acquire the taste. Milk chocolate is almost nasty to me now. Plus, go with the better brands like Lindt and Ghirardelli. Hershey dark is junk.

Yep, dark chocolate is the best! Milk chocolate is much too sweet once you've developed a taste for the real stuff. I don't go below 70% if I can help it.

A really simple, easy breakfast is Greek yogurt with granola. If you have a little more time, cook an egg, top with tomatoes, avocado, and radishes. A piece of wheat toast with some jelly isn't bad, either.

Yogurt is hip right now, but there's a ton of things you can eat for breakfast. I usually go for a simple sandwich or oatmeal porridge. Add a little sugar made from sugarcane and raisins, and it's like eating liquid cookies.
1513  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: How long do you play an RPG for in one sitting on: January 11, 2012, 04:29:50 AM
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!
