But you can gain levels! Everytime you meet someone you've met before, he or she will gain a level.  I'm level 7 on my friend's 3DS and he's level 7 on mine as well. I can take out a lot of things in one hit and since I'm usually blue my magic is pretty cool too :D

Who would just take your clothes and donate them? Seems odd.

My mom, but I'm not sure how it happened. We think she mistook my clothes for clothes she never wore. Her clothes I mean. She dresses like Steve Jobs and owns turtlenecks in all the colours of the rainbow (she used to wear just black ones, but my dad hated that). I guess she mistook mine for hers, along with some other stuff, and thought she might as well donate it if she's not going to wear it.

I hate stress. A combination of finals + haps in my love life I'd rather not get into have kept me horribly stressed out since Friday. I haven't been able to sleep, I haven't been able to eat and when I pretty much eat a whole elephant, and worst of all I've been so tired I haven't been able to stand up long enough to take a shower until tonight. I hate stress. At least finals are done on Thursday and the whole love life thing will be over by then.

Been there, done that. Hang in there, it will be all right :) If you don't feel like eating, you could try drinking a lot of fresh fruit juice. Hot cocao is nice too.

I just found out that my winterclothes have been donated to a charity shop. I'm fine with doing something extra for charity, but I kind of needed those clothes... Worst of all: my favourite jumper was in that bag. It's a pretty, finely knit blueish green turtleneck thing and it goes great with my favourite hat. Me and that jumper have so many memories together! I admit most of those memory involve falling, nearly being lit on fire and catching swine flu, but still... The charity shop opens again on Saturday. I hope I can buy it back.

There's this bar with moves on the bottom of the screen. The one in the middle recharges by letting the character perform normal attacks (this happens automatically unless you order him/her to use another attack). That's where Shulk keeps his Monado skills while other characters have their own special attacks. For instance, Dunbans special consists of three attacks you need to time with the b-button. I'll let someone else fill you in on his attack phrase, because I don't want to hog all the fun.

Next to the special attack are a bunch of skills that all recharge at their own pace. Each character learns a whole bunch of them and you need to come up with a proper movesets yourself. Skills can be improved as you progress and gain more experience.

Sometimes a party member will need some help or cheering up. That's what the b button is for. Using this will also improve the relationship between characters.

As you fight, the party gauge will fill up. You can use it to revive fallen allies or, if it's completely full, stop time and unleash a combo attack in which all active members can participate. The better the characters get along, the longer the combo can become. When you follow up a skill with a skill of the same colour, that attack will be much stronger. These combo's can be used to knock down and stun huge enemies or do massive damage.

Sometimes Shulk has a vision. You can approach an ally and give him/her an order to keep the bad future from happening. Time will stop while you give the command and it will cost one bar from the party gauge.

You only control one characters, the others are controled by AI. Aside from one or two characters, the AI is pretty competent. There are no gambits or whatever. You change their skillsets instead.

So my body refuses to fall asleep. I have to be in a play tomorrow. It's 1 right now. I need to be up at 6. Fuck.

Can't sleep because of stress, get more stressed out, right? Don't worry to much. A few hours of missed sleep isn't going to screw up your day. Maybe you'll be a little cranky, but that's isn't so bad, right? But stay away from the energy drinks. You'll just get a short sugar high before you crash and burn. Crashing and burning is bad.

Can't decide what bag to bring to my 'look I'm a manga expert!' presentation tomorrow. Al my nice bags aren't big enough to fit several books inside, so my options are:
-The gray Nedgame messengerbag which had 'www.nedgame.com' printed on it in large font together with the picture of a ghost from Pacman. I got that one when someone from Nedgame decided to sponsor us as a joke. Sponsor as in: here's a free bag, please use it, we want free advertisement!
-The black PS2 shoulderbag I got for being 'best forum member' over at the official PSForums in 2006. It's a tall bag, so not very suitable for storing large amounts of stuff.
-A grey shoulderbag with that Mashimaro bunny on it. It's covered with buttons and silly keychains I collected over the years. Extremely useful, but far from age appropriate.

and put mayonaise on everything.

I never even knew that was a stereotype!

You never watched Pulp Fiction? Mayonnaise is our ketchup.

Do you put mayonnaise on the wooden shoes?

If I were poor enough to want to eat my wooden shoes: yes.

Huh? Yeah, I'm Dutch. I wear wooden shoes and put mayonaise on everything. But if I had to go outside wearing crocs and PJs, I'd be cold too.
1628  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: December 03, 2011, 05:22:21 PM
It didn't taste half bad actually!

I'm also quite awake, which I normally am not at this hour. I think I'll get my work for tomorrow morning done now and sleep in then.

It just got really, really cold over here and I had to wait outside in my PJs/crocs combo because the building fire alarm went off twice today.

No actual fires I hope?

A word of advice. If you're kind of sick, don't feel liking cooking because of the clean-up, and the only things you can combine into a hot meal are some leftover fried rice and chilibeans... Don't be a hero.

For the people that have played the game, what makes it so good? Is it really one of the best JRPGs in years?

It's like Japan made Skyrim, only it takes place on two dead gods and you can dress up every playable female in a bikini.

Of all birds, why pigeons?

Turtle Doves (from the same bird family as pigeons and doves) are known to form strong bonds with their partner and are therefore seen as a symbol of love in many cultures. For instance, when a couple gets all lovey-dovey (!) we call them 'tortelduifjes' in Dutch.
1632  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: December 03, 2011, 03:55:06 AM

Besides.  I wouldn't call this sick as much as something in my nose is driving me nuts. 

After I read your post, my nose got a little runny. It's your fault! :(

Looks like I'll be getting my own room when/if we go to Paris. My friend said he prefers to have his own room as well. I guess I really have nothing to worry about. It's no wonder other people always ask me if he's gay!

In other news, I went to the dentist today. I was barely through the door when an assistant rushed towards me and asked if I was the 10 o' clock appointment. My appointment was at 10 (I arrived at 9:50, so I was a bit early), so yeah. She rushed me inside the x-ray room and I was in the chair barely a minute later. I had like three seconds to take off my coat. Halfway through the cleaning process she sees another young woman enter the parkinglot and I guess the gears in her head started working. "You're not M., are you?" Well, no, I'm not. I had an appointment at 10, that's all. She never asked for my name, nor did she mention someone else's. "Well, that's all right, you wouldn't be the first to answer to the wrong name."

Then I was treated like a little kid/retard for the rest of the time I was there.

I don't get it. From what I gathered she was new there, so of course she didn't want to look bad in front of the dentist, but she could have  apologized to me at the very least. I would have been fine with pretending it had been my mistake if she had done so.

Berlin is great! So much history, so much culture. Great place to shop too, if you're into that (and if not, check out KaDeWe anyway, that place is crazy!).


I kind of want to recommend Amsterdam because I'm Dutch, but I can't think of anything nice to say about it. Well, it has some interesting musea, I guess... Oh well, if you happen to find yourself in the Netherlands and you like meat, find a store called 'HEMA' and ask for a 'rookworst'.
