"You Make Friends Wisely"




Your friendships are gold to you, and something you take seriously. You prefer quality over quantity when it comes to friends.
When you make friends with someone, you hope to be friends for life. You are loyal to your friends, no matter what goes down.

You expect a lot from friendship, and you're not up for being friends with just anyone. You need to build a relationship first.
Your friends are like family to you... sometimes even closer than family. You can't imagine life without them!










"You Should Be Single"




Just to be clear, this doesn't mean you are bad at relationships. Just the opposite!
You are good at it all - friendship, dating, networking... And you have a blast mixing and mingling.

Maybe you're the married type, but these days, being single is seeming a lot more fun to you.
Whether you're technically married or not, your friends, hobbies, and freedoms mean the world to you.










"You Are Insecure About Your Looks"




You don't necessarily think that you're ugly, but you do consider yourself to be average.
And in this looks-driven world, you just don't think average cuts it anymore. You want to stand out.

You may not feel secure about how you look, but you probably look better than you think.
Ask someone you trust what your best feature is. You may be surprised to find out!

I called Chrystal at work at 12:30 - to my surprise, she was on reception duty! We made plans for her to treat me to a belated birthday dinner on Friday the 13th; we'll meet at 7-ish at the London Drugs near Broadway Station. Sounds good to me!





"You Are Not Charismatic"




You are not a born performer, and there's a good chance that you are more reserved than most people.
What you lack in charisma, you more than make up for in humility and honesty. You are content with who you are.

You are not big on seeking the spotlight. You usually prefer spending time alone to shining in a crowd.
The kind of socialization you crave tends to be one on one, deep, and authentic. You see beneath the surface.







A bunch of funny FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF Ability descriptions!

I went out briefly at 11:30 - just managing to catch the 407 - to get London Orchards Natural Pure Honey and lemon juice from London Drugs. I was home by 12:15 on a 401! I think I'll take a shower later.


London Orchards Natural Pure Honey!




Real Lemon Juice!




After going through the Pyramid and defeating Merugene in FINAL FANTASY V SPOOF, Bartz / Galuf / Faris are reunited with Lenna after using a Cottage to revive her. The airship is also now conveniently located above Surgate Ghetto near the Elder Tree. While they discuss the Sealed Castle and the sealed weapons within, Faris says: "You can't cast a fourth of a Fire spell and expect to do a quarter damage. Or you know, lick a quarter of my ass." Of course I had to show this to Shiv on Discord, haha.




From Vanessa and Rotten Ecards: Don't cry because it's over. Smile because his new girlfriend looks like a troll.

The Canucks had Pre-Season Game #6 against the Kings today in BEIJING at 12:30 AM. Chris Tanev scored with two minutes left in the game; it went to overtime plus a shootout, and the Kings won 4-3. The crowd was really into it!


From BIG RIGS: OVER THE ROAD RACING for Windows: You're winner!




"Capcom! RESIDENT EVIL beef Raviolations in tomato and meat sauce! They're itchy! Tasty!" This made me think of Chrissy!




From GHOSTBUSTERS for the NES: Conglaturation! You have completed a great game, and prooved the justice of our culture. Now go rest our heroes!

I got a baby intro photo card from Steph and Lisa in the mail for baby Henry - very nice! I'm not going to comment on the spelling of "shenanigans," though! Steph said that Shaun did comment on it, haha!

Barry called me at 12:30 to say that he'd found someone named Tryanna who could take me food shopping on the 20th. He says he'll be back in early October, unless war breaks out in Japan. I thought Trump was after North Korea, but WHO KNOWS. Then I called Chrystal at 1:15 to let her know what was up, of course. She appreciated it - of course I'll call her later to confirm!


Crazy Kefka at the final battle of FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS! "Soon I will break free of this wretched HUMAN body, and drain the life of every living creature!"




The FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS party responds, "The Dark Crystals have been destroyed! You can't expect to win against us!"




Kefka as the Dark Cloud says, "All but one... The Shadow Crystal!! It shall protect me and destroy YOU!"




Kefka is the Dark Cloud! )

I got up at 8 AM after going to bed at 1:50 AM, so it was COFFEE TIME BY DEFAULT! Then I discovered something questionable by my reams of Staples paper, so I transferred those into an empty plastic storage tub. Thank goodness it fit, although I probably should have done that a while ago!





"You Are Very Frank"




You are the type of person who tells it like it is. You aren't going to insult people by lying to them.
Your friends can count on you for an honest opinion, whether they ask for it or not. And sometimes the truth isn't pretty.

You are never mean or overly harsh with your frank ways. But if you have to choose, you go for honesty over tact.
You believe that the truth will set us all free. We all suffer when we lie to ourselves and each other.

After three years, I finally added Witwur Bob Robinson as a Facebook friend, and he added me back, so that's a good thing! But Willem unfriended me, which I guess is fine.


From Julie: NACOLE?! That should be spelled NICOLE! Geez, and I thought Nichole was bad enough... this just makes me think of nachos or Cole Porter or something




In FINAL FANTASY IV for Steam and the DS, the party (Cecil / Cid / Tellah / Yang) come across the Troia pub and go upstairs. They see this guy outside a hostess room. "How dare that greasy old greybeard try to take my Jenyfer!" In the GBA / Playstation versions, it was Jenny!




In the FINAL FANTASY IV fan translation for the SNES, the party (Cecil / Cid / Tellah / Yang) come across the Troia pub and go upstairs. They see this hostess girl inside one of the rooms, "Give me a guy with no chest hair next time." What?! HAHAHA!

glowing_dragon: (Devilish Smile)



"You Are the Judicial Branch"




You have a well-developed sense of right and wrong, but you are always open to changing your mind about the details.
You have a very rational mind. You never judge until you learn all of the facts and context for something.

You are good at seeing issues in full. You can hold a lot of details in your head at once, and you're able to organize chaos.
You aren't an overly emotional person, and you can see when people are arguing from emotion. You can step back and assess without passion.







From Ben and Tumblr: Mail and email ten years ago in 2001 vs. mail and email now in 2011, when this was created.




From Reddit: Grim Vermeiren is from Flanders or Belgium?!

glowing_dragon: (No Netspeak!)



"You Are the Crust"




You are a solid person, and you tend to be the foundation for any relationship or project.
While you are the rock for others, it doesn't mean that you are basic or boring. You have a lot of complexity to you.

You have a strong personality and can be a bit overwhelming one on one. You really shine in a group setting.
You know how to make things complete without even trying. You have both a bold and comforting presence.







From Julie: I stopped and waited at this sign for 20 minutes, and zero people did motocross tricks over a rainbow...

BAD SPELLING! It's not "an zero people"!

glowing_dragon: (Default)



"You Are a Go-Getter"




You are a very ambitious person, and you're constantly adding to your list of goals and dreams.
While you dream big, you never let that satisfy you. You like to get out there and make sure your dreams come true.

You don't lose sight of your larger purpose in life, and you keep working even when things get tough.
Your attitude is almost like magic. When every door closes, you keep knocking until a new one opens.







From Reddit on June 18, 2017: I automatically lose respect for people who use the word "normative" when "normal" would do, but this special snowflake seems to think that "monogonormative" is a real word AND thinks that everyone should be cool with a non-monogamous lifestyle. You can DEFINITELY be cheated on if you're poly!

glowing_dragon: (Bubble Tea)
From Mental Floss: TEACH YOUR WIFE TO BE A WIDOW?!




From Janina: Cinderella says, "Come over. We're having a tea party. And by a tea party, I mean we're drinking whiskey from tea cups."




In FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS, the party makes it to the Narshe schoolroom in the World of Ruin. "Welcome to the classroom. We'll be here for you even if the world should crumble." IT DID, AND THEY ARE! How reassuring! :D

From Julie and JUDGE JUDY: Janice Tickle?!

glowing_dragon: (No Netspeak!)
While looking around for some stuff earlier today, I found a Christmas-themed envelope with Teunis's name on it, plus a Percy Jackson and Olympians: The Lightning Thief DVD box. I was going to throw those out, but decided to ask Andrew M. if Teunis might actually like it returned to him. I know how I'd feel if someone threw away my stuff, so I had to do that. Apparently, he does want them back, so we'll see how that goes.

In BOZOBOUND, Bozo / Paige / Robot stay overnight at the Monotoli Grand Hotel upon getting to New Pork. The next day's news headline in the FOURSIDE POST: "Over 70% of Fourside citizens support Monotoli."




In the BOZOBOUND version of Magicant, Bozo is an outline only. His mom, his sister Sharon, and his cat Smokey are in the background.

I once showed my ex-friend Laura C. this picture of arborio rice being used in mushroom risotto!




From Reddit and Robin Grille's HEART TO HEART PARENTING: Time and time again, children are heavily reprimanded for committing the offense of crying or being angry. Let's get this straight: emotions are not bad behavior. Emotions don't hurt anyone. Suppressing children's emotions on the other hand, DOES cause them harm. Over time, if done repeatedly, it unbalances their brain chemistry. It stresses their immune and digestive systems, and it undermines their ability to relate to others.

The headline is: "A little something that reminds me of how narcissists begin fucking their kids up early on."




From Lucas and Discord: The path to success is never take alone.

These are all the enemies I could find in FINAL FANTASY VI: THE ETERNAL CRYSTALS!

I know that this bestiary GameFAQs document helped me a lot; thank you! Also, this walkthrough by Djibriel helped a lot when I was stuck in the game. Here's an amazing codes document. This is an enemy formation document / walkthrough. Here's a game script! Found a good Dragon's Den walkthrough which didn't have atrocious English!

This is a good code document. YAY FOR MAGICITE!

Ayler called me again at 12:50 to ask what time I'd be eating lunch and what time I'd be finished eating, so I told him that I'd be eating pasta at 1:30, but I'd have to make it first. Then Hiero said that he'd had a pink and white and red cupcake today: nice! Harmony said that the kids liked calling people to chat, even if they were eating lunch at the time. Cute and reasonable!
