Disney movies - I never see them either. Some are so vague (like s, e x spelled out in dust in the Lion King) as to be kinda silly. Give me random patterns and I can show you a dozen ways you can make them naughty.

I still find myself irritated by lack of physical buttons... Sliding my finger around just feels less responsive.

This thread is always a fun read. Good luck on your dating prospects, Agent D.~

Anyways, I've been sick as a dog for two days now. :( I think it may just be allergies (The pollen count is rediculous in my area right now, especially the mold spore count, according to Weather.com), which makes it worse since I could just wake up tomorrow and be all better, only to get worse the day after. This time of year really blows. I'm missing work today, too, and I finally got on Cashier training this week...

And to think, the last time I got an allergy test, they said I didn't have any allergies. Then how do they explain the hives when I have artificial sweeteners or Penicillin? Or the congestion I get every spring? Of course I have allergies. The freakin' idiots probably dropped the vial and didn't fess up. It's not like I wouldn't have taken the test again if they asked. I would've been annoyed, but you know what's more annoying? Having to wear a yellow and black shirt outside and avoiding all the freakin' bees because I have no idea if I'm allergic or not, and I'm not about to find out the hard way...

Allergies can come and go. I am no longer as allergic to grass pollen, but I went from testing reactive to only three things to testing reactive to everything that's not a bee or food :-/  My friend had a mild reaction to shellfish in the past almost passed out from being unable to breathe when his allergy flared up and reacted much worse than previously.

An old test might no longer be accurate or maybe you had a good day histamine-wise

A mini map really helped, since you can see where people are instead of driving aimlessly around in circles not knowing where people are.

I do wish they did make some battle mode arena tracks to vary things up a bit. It was cool to have some race track battles, but having both would create more variety.

I read the main site. It's how I find out what I want/need to watch for! Also, gives me information on games as they come up. Keep writing! :). (Ps podcasts kinda suck if you're deaf so.... :p)

Just level then up to the limit break and have cannons around for boss battles.

Met my hubby on Lavalife!

I would suggest actually trying a bunch of sites and seeing which ones are more active in your area. Some popular ones were not very busy for me (yes, even a female) so it is good that I was trying out:

Okcupid - meh ok, but didn't find anyone
match.com - are they all bots???
EHarmony - ok you're atheist, and don't want to date religious folks. Sikhism and Hindiusm aren't Christianity so they don't count right? We'll just match you up with all the non-Christian folks and call it a day.
Plentyoffish.com - plenty of nothing but chatter and no substance
Lavalife - more activity where I was, a couple of lame dates and one really awesome date that led to a real match.

Hubby liked my profile because I had a cute picture and a profile that really reflected me instead of generic girl post #645. Possibly scared off some people, but who has time to waste with people who dont accept a deaf, video game loving, artistic fantasy fan?

I have to say that boring profiles with lots of typos didn't make me want to talk to you. It's like an interview. If you can't be bothered to put your best foot forward now, it doesn't make a good impression! Also, no innuendos pls. PLS.

We like it. There was a big overhaul at some point, did you play around the time the game first came out? I hear it was problematic then.
40  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: WiiU on: May 06, 2015, 09:47:58 PM
I am hoping they will do some more battle mode tracks eventually... hubby and I love going online and battling things out, but the lack of tracks is making it start to lose luster.
41  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New 3DS Fire Emblem If on: April 29, 2015, 08:33:17 PM
I like the idea but doc,my locking etc just seems like a mess. Just release two separate games, or put it all on one.

And worst male characters?

Huh, after Saturday, I have the entire next week off. O_O

...but now I feel bad for taking today off...I mean, I was sick, but still...

After working my ass off today, I don't feel so bad anymore. I'm gonna need the vacation. T~T

---

I've yet to have a copy of the Sunday Funnies that have more than 3 funny strips in it...which is a shame, because it's usually the same 4 comics that are funny: Dilbert, Zitz, Foxtrot, Garfield. At least one of them always has to suck, while the rest are usually funny. Otherwise it seems like the are a whole lot of comics that long run their course. Even the newer ones like Lio. Seriously, that got old after a month....

Though to be fair, Garfield and Zits seem to run the same jokes over and over again with mild alterations. They just happen to be jokes I'll probably never stop finding funny, especially Zits, which always seems to find a lot of ways to visually present its jokes - seriously, it's the only one that seems to still celebrate the fact that on Sundays it gets to be in color...

Dilbert I guess is repetitive, too, but it's hard to tell since quite often there's no real punchline to its jokes. I have a feeling Dilbert might work better during the week, because then it doesn't have to be so long...

I need to read Foxtrot more often, though. That one has the most creativity from what I've read, it's just stuck between two of my least favorite comics, so I tend to forget it's there...

Garfield is even better without Garfield.




Sorry for the quote but is the site being borked for anyone else today? It looks like a mess and the reply buttons have vanished....

And it's our pleasure. Nothing could make the work we put into it more worthwhile than you finding new music :D Which ones did you end up checking out!

I did listen to other recommended OSTs although they didn't work for me, but new ones that sounded interesting were FFXI Forever, Chrono Trigger Symphony (although I picked up the first one, not the current third one) and the prescription for sleep CD :)

Haven't had a chance to listen yet though. I do a lot of listening while at work to block out the random chatter and phone calls in the cubical farm :)
45  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Music of the Year 2014! on: April 02, 2015, 12:07:34 PM
Favourites: Child of Light, FF14, Lightning Returns, Danganrompa 2

Honorable mention (first heard it in 2014, came out in 2007): Anata wo Yurusanai - this was a detective game released only in Japan. I only tried this soundtrack out because Nobuo Uematsu was the lead composer. Jazz musicians round out the music team. The result is a very striking jazz compilation that reminds one of Uematsu's works as well. Note that reviews seem to be split between enjoying the work and finding it a bit boring. I would imagine if having an album with more mellow jazzy tunes vs one with more ups and downs appeals to you, you might give it a try. It is available on iTunes although spelled as "anatawo yurusanai" here.

Ps thanks for this feature - I ended up downloading 3 new albums to try!
