which meant all the women there ended up in the kitchen.

Isn't that where all women are supposed to be?   :/



Couldn't resist

Kidd doesn't have the best of stats and falls into average at everything pretty much.
Clearly not protagonist stats.

And yes, you did screw your stats:

Quote
CC does not have experience points. Instead, you gain a star level at predetermined points in the storyline, after defeating certain bosses. When you gain a star level, all 43 characters gain stats regardless of whether they are in your active party, recruited but inactive, not yet recruited, never recruited, recruited but not in your roster due to game events or NG+ status, etc., etc. Star level ups result in varied increases. More often than not, most stats get a boost.

There is one, and only one, exception: if a character is in your active party and is DEAD when the battle ends, they miss out on the stat gain and CANNOT "make it up" later. This does not mean they are "locked out" of maxing out any stats, it just means they missed that particular chance to gain stats.


Well, crap...
It is what it is. I definitely have to be more careful with that. At least it's not happening with an intended end-game character. It would just be nice if Kid didn't get knocked out by SunOfAGun after every 2-3 turns... At least now I know for future reference. Thank you for the response, kind sir.
I just sort-of cheated, and looked it up: SunOfAGun only carries a damn screw. I'm putting Macha back in, in place of Kid. Should be able to whoop his/its ass then.

Chrono Cross - Finished beating up the dwarves. Got yelled at by the thankless fairies. Went back to the fire cave (forgot the cave's actual name) in the other world. Got through that, and the 4 mini-dungeons in Fort Dragonia. Currently having trouble with the sun/face thing guarding the white beacon there. Sumbitch got some strong spells. It doesn't help that Kid has a crazy low number of hit points. At least, compared to Serge and Glenn. She kept getting knocked the fuck out during every damn boss fight in Dragonia (I swear they were targeting her), so she wouldn't reap the benefits of "leveling up".
Am I right about that? If a character is knocked out in a fight that results in a "level up", they miss out on the extra stat gains? Or does Kid just have shitty level ups...? I guess in this case, it doesn't matter, because I'm not planning on keeping her in the party long term. I'm just using her now for the thieving. On that note, I'm surprised by the amount of rare/useful items that can be stolen, even from random encounters. Crime sure does pay in this game.


Picked up LBP Karting from the PSN sale, mostly for my son. I've never bothered with the LBP series before now, but this one is a surprisingly solid Kart racer. I don't kow if I can say it's "better" than Sonic Racing Transformed yet, but it certainly is more fun.

^ I was admittedly apprehensive googling that. Almost expected to be goatse'd.

That's both crazy and awesome. A stoner's dream. ...Hence the obvious name.

^ While I'm personally not about to fuck with a burger even half that size, t'aint nothin wrong with indulging in some greasy delight now and then. Like anything in life, it's best in moderation. I personally can't eat that kind of shit every day, just like I can't eat rabbit food (salads) every day.  Just last night, I had the Bourbon Bacon & Brisket sandwich from Arby's. First time I've had fast food in weeks. I don't mind telling you, it was damn delicious. Sipped on a glass of Appleton Estate 12 Year after that, and I was straight as a lamp post.

^ I'd wager it's because you aren't skimping on the grounds. A well-brewed coffee should be nice and rich. Coffee bought whilst out is almost never like that... What method do you use to make it at home?


I put about 1.5 tbsp of grounds per 6 oz of coffee in my Mr. Coffee, two paper filters, set to "Strong" and hit "Brew Now".

Is that not how everyone does it?

That's 50% more grounds per 6 oz of water than I put in my Black & Decker (autodrip) or Aeropress, so I'm personally not surprised you get jacked up on it - lol.

Why 2 filters? Of course, I am no chemist, but I would think that would greatly lessen the flavor of the actual coffee. I guarantee you if you use ONE permanent filter, it will come out tasting much better. ...If you are interested in such a thing, of course.



I've never bothered with Five Guys. They opened one near my work a while back, and I was abhorred at the prices people were telling me they were paying. I've had gourmet ground steak burgers from steak houses that were cheaper than that.
You down with Culver's, Yoda? I'd have to say they are the shit when it comes to fast food (good food quickly).

Nutella milkshake

Interesting...

Totally agree that the aeropress makes better coffee.  But you usually have to use more grounds to get less cups.

This is true. Being the lazy man that I am, I just go with the ol' autodrip when making more than 2 cups.

Chemex + tea kettle + cheap grinder + 5 minutes = brew your own coffee to taste how you want it to (and avoid McDonalds/ waiting in line)

Personally, I prefer Aeropress with a permanent filter over Chemex, but I get ya.

- I'm never going to stop going to McDonalds because I genuinely like their coffee a lot.

They do have pretty good coffee. Sadly, better than a lot of places that pride themselves on their shit coffee. It's honestly the only reason I would go to a Mickey D's.

Eternal Blue - Got stuck in the mirror maze for WAY longer than I should have.
... Also I just watched a video of the EBC version of the dungeon and it's just a single floor, moving platform puzzle? >:T

The "Mystic Ruins"? I always dreaded that dungeon when playing through EB. This platform? no.. This platform? NO... THIS PLATFORM??? FUCK ALL OF THESE PLATFORMS!!!
I don't remember it in EBC at all, which means it must have been a cakewalk (unsurprisingly, of course).

^Still jealous.

I walked up to Walmart today and had to exchange my signature "I swear I'm not a stoner" look with the cashier as I paid for my taquitos and Mtn. Dew Code Black. I'm just a sucker for cheap junk food.

They work at Wal Fart. Who cares what they think of you?

Started watching White Collar. The show honestly starts out kind of weak, and I almost gave up on it after the first few episodes... I stuck with it though, and am glad I did (a lesson Bojack Horseman taught me). I'm about 10 episodes in, and it's really coming into its own. The writing and characterization have already improved since the beginning, and the cases have become more interesting/intricate. It definitely helps that the 2 leads have really good chemistry, making them both likeable. Plus, having Tiffani Thiessen around is never a bad thing.

Dear Tina Fey -

If you keep making the same lazy "I'm such an undesirable oaf, why won't anyone fuck me? lolz!" joke over and over and over and over and over it's going to trick poor young impressionable women into thinking that, if they aren't somehow prettier and funnier than you (and you're DEFINITELY both of those) than they are also undesirable oafs, thus having the opposite affect of (what I assume) is the "empowered woman! xoxoxo HRC FoEvs!" message you are always trying to tell us that you're projecting.

Danke

Josh

I've never been a fan of hers... She seems more pretentious and self-absorbed than she lets on.

Reminds me of that episode of South Park involving Bono: "That's why he's able to do so much, try to help so many people, but still seem like such a piece of shit."



EDIT:
True Romance - What a fantastic action/black comedy film. Can't believe I missed this one until now.  All around good: writing; acting; directing. You can tell it was written by Tarantino. There are many big names in this film, and they all do a great job. Crazy to see Brad Pitt doing the type of role he did here (obviously something he would never do today). Gotta admit I'm not the biggest fan of Slater (He is like a bad Jack Nicholson impersonation personified), but he does pretty good here, and the other actors definitely help even it out. Oldman honestly should have had more screen time. He truly is a man of many faces. One thing I appreciated is that while the nature of the film and its story are violent, it never feels excessive for the sake of being excessive. Just enough for the present situation.
A very entertaining movie. I was never once bored, or uninterested. It's already made its way near the top of my favorite films of the 90s.
