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.

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'.

Say something innocuous like "you can have the bed in the hotel, I'll use the sofa/cot/etc" and see what he says

I already insisted on having my own room. Whenever we travel together we have seperate rooms and this time shouldn't be any different.

Your crap won't be so holy then, will it?

I've got a problem. A romcom-worthy problem. There's this guy I've been best friends with for years. We're coworkers too. We spend more than a little time together, but just as friends and colleagues. Now he's invited me to go to Paris with him. His connections got him free accomodations, so I all have to pay for are my trainticket and food. It's a great oppurtunity as I've never been to Paris. On the other hand, he's male, I'm female, ten years ago he was in love with me (it was a very awkward love triangle), I said no, he has had other girlfriends after that, but now he's single. I'm not in love with him, I pray he's not in love with me and never will be.

I think I'm sure we're just going as friends, but it's been proven time and after time that I know nothing about that stuff.

There are some practical problems too. My French is absolutely horrible and all attempts to improve it have ended in disaster. The French aren't known for their English. This means I will have to depend on him a lot, because he does speak French (and is in fact near fluent). I don't like that. I'll also have to look for someone to bunnysit. I hate having to ask my mom to watch the two again. It's inconvenient for her.

Still working as a freelance writer, but I think new doors are starting to open thanks to my growing network. For instance, I've been asked to help out with a manga exhibition. I'm an expert now :D

Stand next to a named NPC and you should see two option. IIRC: a - talk, y - trade.

I think it's best to drop by once in a while and see if you can complete some request. More often than not they don't ask for anything too rare.

Why does everyone keep reminding me I'm old? ;_;

The answer is, of course, when the cassette vomits tape, you use a pen to get it back in by sticking it in one of the holes and turning it.

Meh, parents always think their own children are the cutest. It's perfectly natural :P

All right, that doesn't explain why I think my little cousin is the cutest kid ever, but still... He's really adorable, you know? Last time I visited we played knights and he made me do paperwork, because paperwork was very, very important. And the way he's always trying to help around the house (wearing a tiny apron!) makes me want to hug him.

I feel really bad for CDFN, we have truly shown our utter inability to act like normal humans since he posted that picture.

No, what normal people do is compliment the parents on a job well done, then turn around and talk behind their backs about how the kid has the weirdest nose ever. Or how he's probably the mailman's. Or something like that.

I'm not a normal person, so you can trust me when I say that baby is adorable! :)

The picture didn't show up at first, but now that I've seen it, yes, he's a really cute kid! Not as cute as my adorable little cousin though :P

So... I'm supposed to write two pages on Tiger & Bunny. The show was on my to watch list (I usually wait for the DVDs to come out because my laptop is old and can't be hooked up to the TV and I don't like watching anime on a small screen), so, great! I decided to be responsible and start watcing way ahead of the deadline. That was three days ago, I've now seen the whole series and I will probably name my next rabbit Barnaby.
