It was raining outside when I left Kirkland this evening ... although it took me one startled moment of pause to realize what the rain actually was. Seen through the orange flourescent street light, coming down from the black sky ... it looked at first like it was snowing.

And then I took a breath ... and another one. Oh, it was the strongest rain smell I've been alive for in some time. I walked home in it, not minding one bit.

Note to self - applesauce tastes better and is more refreshing to eat when it is cold. Applesauce is not a finger food.

Walking downstairs this morning, I spotted a box which once contained shoes, and had on it the label "Teletubbies Eva." The logical side of me says that the style of the shoe has been named Eva by the shoe company, and the shoe has prints of Teletubbies on it ... but the illogical side of me cracks up to imagine a Teletubbie inside of an Eva, screaming in emotional agony and kicking ass (or dramatically failing to).

And now ...

Sakaki: ::fumes::
Minwa: Eepu?
Sakaki: I failed to save Garnet??? That's what Pheonix Downs are for!!
Sakaki: Don't Game Over me! >.<;;
Minwa: Where were you?
Sakaki: ::growls:: How the hell do I heal her? o_o; Neither Zidane nor Steiner can heal ...
Sakaki: In the Evil Forest.
Sakaki: Garnet was inside the wierd-looking plant thing.
Minwa: AGH!!!!!
Sakaki: How do you do it? o_o;
Minwa: You have to heal her
Minwa: And kill the thing.
Sakaki: How do you heal her? That's my problem. ._.
Sakaki: Throw potions in that direction?
Minwa: :h~mms: It has been over year since I went past that point... @_!
Sakaki: brb, going to go try again. -_-;
Sakaki: Dammit, it did it again.
Sakaki: Jeeze, how the hell do I heal her??
Minwa: Oh!
Minwa: Kill it as fast as you can.
Sakaki: .... how? o_O;;
Minwa: What level are you?
Sakaki: ... 1.
Minwa: Go around and fight things until you're about level 5 or 6
Sakaki: OK! Time to enact the plan!

Minwa: Is it working?
Sakaki: No. ._.
Sakaki: I'm level seven now and she's still biting the dust every time.

In other news, there is one thing that bothers me insanely about FFIX ... and that is the controls are practically reversed from FFVII, or at least, two of the most important ones - run, and select/cancel. The X used to make you run and the O selected, but not anymore, 'tis the other way around!

Sakaki - Oh crap! Shoot! Wrong button!!

I love Steiner and Vivi. ::huggles them both:: Poor Steiner, he's so devoted. I felt so sorry for Steiner when he tried to jump after Garnet and Zidane, both of whom are so much lighter than he is! ::crunch::

Tinkie Winky's new mantra becomes "Musn't run away...."

Whoa whoa, are you equating Tinky Winky with Shinji?

... well, I haven't actually watched the Teletubbies for any span over thirty seconds, so I can't really say anything.

::the sun shows the disturbing baby face::
Sakaki - ... oh God. ::hits switch::

LOL. X) I've watched that show once or twice with my little brother, and I think to myself, "This show would give me nightmares if I was 5 years old. o_o" Maybe I just think so because I'm older and have a corrupted imagination. :P

You can arrange the button controls in FFIX. ^^ Change them to match the layout for FFVII if you like... Better luck saving Garnet, BTW. ^_^;

Yay! Front Line Assembly!

Dude, I'm going to be all over that customization deal tomorrow morning. XD

It cracked me up when the band began playing the theme that plays in Junon in FFVII. o.o;

Sakaki - Oh, holy cow ... whoa, no no no ... LOL. MAKE IT STOP! ::laughs::

LOL, I thought it was cool. ^_^ I hear there's some way (on disc 4) to hear music from FFVI in a certain area, too. I'll have to try it out...

Well, Sakaki, I don't remember having trouble at that part of the game ^^;; I might've . .hnn. . but maybe you aren't attackign it correctly? I dunno. . there's a way to beat it though, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't make the very first boss that hard. The game is actually decently challenging and all.
There are lotsa cheap tricks you can do with the abilities to make beating bosses a cinch later on.

And if you plan on getting all the ultimate weapons and stuff, you're gonna hate doing it in FFIX. . I hated the Chocobo game . . you'll see what I mean soon enough.

There IS a way. When you select an attack on the plant, there are two options, the plant or Garnet. Press left or right or up or down to change the option. It's kind of tricky if you don't know about it (kid of like how you save Rinoa on FFVIII). And you can heal Garnet with potions. I usually steal them from random enemies I fight before rescuing Garnet. Good luck.

The reason why she kept on biting the dust so often is that I didn't know what Dyne (or whatever that D thing is that comes along with Trance) was, so I didn't use it ... and regular attacks from Zidane don't do as much damage. XD ::cough:: I got it! I swear I did! ^^; It just ... took me more than one try, to butter it up, weakening it and all ... ::rambles on, ignoring the fact that getting a Game Over causes you to revert to your last save::

I'm bad at chocobo racing. o_o;

It's not racing in FFIX. ^^ It's the Hot & Cold game! You ride a chocobo around and dig for treasure. It's actually quite addicting, especially once you start finding chocographs and leveling-up your chocobo. ^^ You get lots of nifty prizes, too.

Are you nuts? That Chocobo Hot & Cold thing took me FOREVER! AAAAAAAAAHHH!!! Just thinking about it gives me headaches! It was so torturous for me. Especially cause I was bent on getting all the items! ALL the items! Which I did... ::dies::
HEADCLEANER: The Contactantitype on October 2nd, 2002 10:36 pm (UTC)
^_^;;; No one I talk to says they liked it... I don't know why, but I find it addicting. It's very simplistic, but it's somehow relaxing... Like playing a puzzle game.

I LOVE Chocobo Hot and Cold.

You can't mean the Kirkland that's the suburb of Montreal, because it's raining over here and that would be really wierd if you were here.

Re: Ner?
Nope, I'm in the middle of a soybean field in the United States. ^_^ Kirkland is a building on campus, but I'll be damned if I can tell you who it's named after. o_O; Probably some dead soul who donated a bunch to the University ...
SD: Determinedsado_nishi on October 2nd, 2002 09:23 pm (UTC)
Just hit it with everything you have! Zidane's trance, if possible. Only heal Garnet if her HP goes too low, otherwise, kill kill kill. XD
One Who Wanders: amusedabiona on October 2nd, 2002 09:32 pm (UTC)
I got it, we're good to go. ^_^ I'm out in the World Map now! ::happy happy:: I get to go run and get killed. XD
