potato bread  
My family called the other day to tell me that The November Incident returns; my insurance refused to pay, so I've been turned over to a collection agency. Apparently, the doctor from the small Catholic hospital located in the middle of the soy was not in their plan. It was an emergency ... have the rules of insurance no place for "kindness" or "humanity" ...? Here's to hoping we get it all worked out.

P.S. Please stop snowing, it's April.

"Behold our savage Kitty and Crossbones flag, and despair!!"

I reached a "I'm really effin' stuck" point with Disgaea (Laharl single-handedly bitchslapped Mid-boss Vyers into submission, but could not take out everybody else too), and in frustration, turned to La Pucelle Tactics. When the Maiden of Light comes to save our asses, she's going to do it in thigh-highs and a pink miniskirt.

When I started La Pucelle, I promptly got stuck again, but after a good number of restarts and a new infusion of luck, I got past that trauma and got to meet PIRATE KITTIES. Things like Prinnies and Pirate Kitties make up for SO much. Yarr!! It's almost enough to make me forget just how completely stuck I am again!

For some reason, I find the process of leveling up fairly tedious, so most of my party is on the lower end of the levels necessary to clear maps. I tend to be at the end of my rope with a lot of battles. I really dislike how the Dark Portals spew forth new enemies after a certain point ... when I'm down to a tired three out of eight party members, the last thing I need is three fresh enemies. I'm also not a fan of this entire "Make a square that's bigger than fifteen squares and have an enemy in the middle to create a Miracle/Summon" thing. That's just way too complicated! (And since the position of the Dark Portals is randomly generated, also heavy on the luck factor.) I much prefer to (attempt to) pummel my enemies into submission by hand.

I actually like Prier, the female lead. She's got spunk, strength, and intelligence. She won a lot of votes from me when she refused to accept everything in the Holy Book as truth. She is my favorite thus far, though there is competition from Captain Homard and the PIRATE KITTIES.

Yeah, I know how irritating the collections agents can be with insurance. With the taxes Americans pay, healthcare should be free... oh wait, this isn't Europe (damned insurance regulators!)

they even let you use natural means and not soy infused byproducts of mass marketing.

Re: Welcome to the east
And boy, can I attest to that one! I still spazz out when I think of that time in upstate NY when I saw snow sprinkles in May!

Re: Welcome to the east
It does this in Northern Indiana too. I don't really care where we are, just that the snow needs to stop, on the principle of it being April. ::laugh::

Re: Welcome to the east
Yeah, wait until it's October and we're complaining about the incessant heat.

Which is why I really hate insurance (and wish they would die off the face of the earth).

I was so avoiding starting La Pucelle Tactics (and complete that forsaken Star Ocean whatever), but all this talk from you makes me want to play it now. Ahh!

Kitties! Homard and the Pirate Kitties have some of my favorite scenes in that game so far. I love how he practically curses them out when calling them.

Also, Prier's B.A.Q.© (Bad-Ass Quotient) is only rivaled by Sister Allouette's grace under pressure.
