The rain yesterday was a bit on the odd side, very sporadic during the afternoon (though it did finally even out at night and rained in my window). It reminded me a bit of a high school clique, actually. There is the leader cloud who said to the other clouds, "I'm going to rain!" This leader cloud is very upfront and believes in it completely, but on the whole is rather flaky, and cannot keep up a consistent rain. This is not noticed, however, for there are follower clouds going "Okay, I'll rain too!" Though they do not initiate the downpour, they perpetuate it. Finally, there is the geek cloud who is trying to disassociate himself with his normal companions and is attempting (without success) to join the in-crowd. This is the poor little guy who, after the other clouds have moved on and the sun is shining, starts sprinkling a day late and a dollar short, forever trying to catch up.
Despite the funk, I did manage to leave the house (though I have to admit it was partially a matter of necessity, as there was no food left). There are two purchases I felt were of note: BBQ rice cracker thingies, and chicken. Yes, chicken, as in chicken that comes in a package that you have to take out and actually cook for yourself. But alas, thus far I have chickened out on the cooking ... the pun is about as bad as my hesitance. I must get o'er this!
"Rice-cracker-snackie-thingies, I like those," I thought to myself. And I remembered the really awesome BBQ chips that erikadoor had, ones that somehow tasted like ramen noodes despite being a potato chip! Could the two coolnesses possibly be combined into one package? The answer is "no." I do not recommend this flavor at all, as it's truly bizarre and not very BBQ-like. Well, wait just a second. Could it be that perhaps I am expecting barbeque flavor and am thus disappointed? Are "barbeque" and "BBQ" the same thing in snack language?
I also got my roll of film developed while I was out. I picked out a few pictures to scan, but realized that I had not yet installed my scanner (there was no room for it when I was back in Indiana at the time of the Reformatting, so I just never bothered). I searched high and low for the scanner discs/essentials ... I have the scanner. I have the cords. But I simply cannot find the programs to install to make the scanner happy. Then I realized, I don't have Photoshop to edit the photos with anyway ... fishsticks.
FFX thought: I want to know why, despite everyone having two hands and at least a few people having pockets or areas to stash things in, we can only carry one sphere at a time while in a Chamber of Trials/finding the damn Cactuar Gatekeepers.
