I also only drink water, never juice or soda. I purify water and boil it every day so I have some to drink at any time.

I don't have to go through that trouble because our tap water is perfectly safe and tasty, but I nearly always take some with me when I leave the house. In fact, when eating lunch when out shopping with friends/family I won't order anything to drink, because it's much cheaper to drink the water I brought with me after we leave.

I hate chopping onions but that farmer's omelette was totally worth it.

Edit: linguistic brainfart.

Nuri, there's some rioting happening a few roads over from me at the moment. Pretty scary stuff.

I'd be damn disturbed to be anywhere near that shit right now. I'm flying into London this week but won't be heading towards any of the (thusfar) affected areas. Be careful Deg! :(




I read they've gone as far as lighting buildings on fire and that the violence has spread to other cities as well. That's really awful.

No! No, snails are not cute. They're slimy and icky and make a disgusting sound if you accidentally step on one (because I'd never intentionally do that, really)! >_<

Aw, they're charming little pets once you get to know them :D

Of course, half the fun of owning one of these is freaking out whoever happens to see them.

Is it a captivity thing with the cicadas? Cause I thought they had a pretty long life for insects?

They do, but they spend most of their life underground. When they finally come up after 2, 3 or even 17 years depending on the species, they have one summer of freedom. They mate (the 'singing' is their mating call) and die shortly after. That cicada will probably die before summer is over.

We don't get many walking sticks around here. I saw one in the Spring, and that's it. First one I'd seen in years.
He has tried keeping other bugs, though. Pill bugs are a favorite.

Ever tried snails? My sister had some. They're actually kind of cute.

Well, most of the endings are bad, so...

Anyway, still playing Wild Arms 5 and I'm about 20 hours in. Gameplay is as fun as ever, but this game brings out the worst in English voice actors...

Well, you could always support companies like Atlus instead of falling for smurfberry schemes and paying for demos. You won't be the only one.

Demon_Princess_Kay, you surprise me. I thought you'd be more into Finnel.

My son caught a Cicada at Kindercare today and insisted on bringing it home and making it his pet. I told him they don't live very long and not to get too attached to the thing. He put together a nice box environment for it with sticks, grass, dirt, and even some water. I figure it's harmless and even educational. He's lucky he has a cool dad.


You could always get him some new 'pets' after this one dies. Walking sticks/leafs are pretty neat and most are easy to care for.

I wonder what makes this game Cero D ?

it's a parodies those love sim games... Maybe you're supposed to have sex with all 108 of them to get the happy ending? Or would that be 108 happy endings?

Clothes, probably. I only buy new clothes when I think I need them and I whatever I do have, I pretty much wear down to the thread.

Me too. There's some stuff I've had since I was 13 or so (I kinda failed at the whole growing thing...) that still fits, is in pretty good condition and isn't childish enough to hand down. Though I wouldn't mind spending some cash on a new swimsuit. I've had this one for ten years now and I'm getting kinda sick of the raspberry red. But I bet it will be a few years before I find a proper replacement. The store in town doesn't even stock my size anymore...

There are some things I am determined to never cut corners on- for example, shoes. I will gladly spend a lot of money on a sturdy, comfortable pair of shoes. Because I have pretty feet (and I love them)! :D

I do a lot of walking, so I also prefer shoes that are comfortable and look good! But I nearly always wait for a sale. I don't want to pay 100 for a 100 pair of shoes, I want to pay 25 :D

I'm not exactly cheap... but I'm very careful with my money. If I really want or need something, I don't mind paying for it, but I'm always careful not to waste any.

For instance, I always go for the bargains when grocery shopping and spend 20 a week on avarage, but I don't mind spending a little extra on local produce and eggs from free range chickens. I also don't buy a lot of clothes. When I go shopping, which is maybe twice a year, I usually replace the basics that need to be replaced and buy maybe one special item. Oh and in winter, I keep the central heating system at 18 or 19 degrees celsius during the day and 15 at night. It's better for my books and it saves money.

As for glasses, so far I've needed a new pair every three years or so, but I usually buy them when there's a good deal and I always go for the cheaper frames. Last time I got a free pair of prescription sunglasses. Awesome.

Then there's my hobbies. Yeah... let's not talk about what I spend on my hobbies...

Yeah, it's ridiculous L block won. Z block is way cooler since it's all twisted, same goes for its twin S block. Don't you love those edgy characters? Straight it just overcompensating though. It's funny once, but then you just hate having to depend on that one. And Square is just boring and predictable. Now T block, that one is underrated. I love how it always finds a way to fix whatever mess the other blocks get into.

Sorry, that hasn't been funny since the first Tetris fanfic was written but I just had to get it out. Totally serious about the T block though. T blocks rock.

I'm... not good with needles. I have very few fears. One of them is needles.

Don't worry, you'll get used to needles quick enough if they decide to poke you with one every month or so!

...

Though you should probably be worried if it ever gets to that point :P

Tomara, I totally understand your gripe. I'd be pissed, too.

Thanks. It's good to know I'm not the only one who feels that way.
