'02-'03 School Year Blister Count: 3  
I have been in a state of continual physical discomfort for some time now ... at times, it increases to pain of a definite, breath-taking sharpness ... my left shoulder, in particular, has this problem. No matter which way I stand, sit, or lie down, I just can't seem to get my back to be a happy camper once more. I miss the days of no pain. XP It seems somewhat more difficult to focus on anything when my mind is on the back which doesn't agree or the shoulder which wants to secede from my body. But I realize that other people have it worse than I do ... and if they can live their lives in spite of it, so can I! ::determined look::

I have been feeling extremely lonely today ... to such an extent, it seemed as though I was lacking some sort of "home." I walked ... I wandered ... I utilized my more traditional distracting activities of anime and video games ... yet still ... the loneliness remains.

I would say that based on appearances, Amarant has no head, only hair. But logic tells me that one must have a sizable head for such an amazing amount of hair to grow on, so he's got something underneath that 'fro.

I wish I could have more than four people in my party, although I really shouldn't complain, as four is a step up from three a la FFVII. ^_^; Garnet, or Eiko? Freya, or Quina? What about Vivi and Steiner, my favorites? (I seem to have equipped Steiner with a sword that actually causes him damage when he attacks. XP I sure hope he learns that bit of Sword Art from it soon ...) Eiko's got more potent Cure spells at the moment ... but Garnet is more well-rounded ... ::ponders:: ... hmm ...

I absolutely love the ship that you get to travel in ("Fwssshhh!," "REVERSE!"), although I can't remember where I'm supposed to go now that I have it, other than "find Kuja." I was doing some exploring ... I found a land of snow, in which I nearly got killed ("Noooo! Somebody revive Zidane! He's the only one with the Flee skill!!"), and I found another Qu's Marsh out on an island (after which, I did get killed ... stupid dragon).

I've done a lot of dying today. ._.; I found a horrible book in the bookrooms of the Alexandrian castle ... a voice said "challenge me if you dare," and I was curious, so I did. I died in short order. XP The fight got to a point where I was chain-reviving every member of my party, only to watch them fall under a mass Paper Storm, or whatever that attack was. XP Curiosity really killed the cat this time.

You know that store in Treno that has the monster in the cage under the floor ...? I remembered the monster that was in there when I had Steiner try to defeat it ... and I knew that I could beat it easily with Zidane as he stood right then and there. So, I went up to the lady, and said "I want to fight that monster."

... well, guess what? They had changed the monster. XP I died.

I am VERY bad at Tetra Master. I won against Sailor Erin the first time I played against her, quite easily in fact ... and then I didn't get a chance to save before I perished at the hands of that nefarious novel. ::shakes fist:: With the aid of the reset button, I played against her several more times, and I lost pretty every single time. She took my only Frog card. ;_;

I am VERY good at catching frogs. XD ::waves a Silver Fork around madly::

Oh! Before I died the one time around the one Qu's Marsh, I found the best friendly enemy ever. It was this cat-thing that looked like it was made out of wire and Kuronekosama from Trigun ... absolutely a delightful scream, it was. Sadly, it asked me for Diamonds, and I didn't have any. ;_; I ran away.

Someone once said that "people who are single shouldn't watch KareKano." It's not that we shouldn't watch it ... it's just that in moods like these, KareKano is painful because it makes things like "romance" seem so strangely plausible.

So, we formed an Angry Mob of three today, but by the end of the parade we realized that we were more of an Apathetic Mob and/or a Tired Mob. We also had a Slayer, two Harem, and one Dracula (complete with signs describing their occupation). I got to swing a sword and a cross around madly! I have pictures ... but I don't know just when I'll be able to get them developed/if they turned out. XP

If I get new glasses sometime in the future, I need to remind myself to get a pair where the frame is fully metal ... none of this "invisible string" stuff holding the lenses in. The left lens popped out for the second time today ... fortunately, John was able to fix them for me, since I was having a case of really, really bad luck while trying to fix it myself. XP

You know, I never really understood Tetra Master...

It's pretty simple once you get the hang of it. ^^

Then perhaps you could enlighten us, O Tetra Master. ;_;
HEADCLEANER: Canaryantitype on October 13th, 2002 10:35 am (UTC)
Well, I'm sure the tutorial could explain it much better than I can. ^_^; Basically, each card has a number value. When you place a card next to another, depending on the position of the arrows, the cards will face off and whichever is left with the most 'hit points' wins. That's the gist of it, anyway...

Maybe I just could never get into it... I liked Triple Triad a lot better!

'Someone once said that "people who are single shouldn't watch KareKano."'

Perhaps that is a factor affecting my opinion (which isn't too positive) about that anime.

I recommend Modo frames. I've had these glasses for a long time now, and they're still in great condition, and they look super-sexy, to boot.
One Who Wanders: amusedabiona on October 13th, 2002 08:59 am (UTC)
I get whatever frames I like, sometimes crossing over into men's and children's frames. XD I saw this really awesome pair once ... they were so damn tiny ... but sadly, they were in Kentucky, and I had already gotten a pair of glasses. ;_;

LOL... The monsters that ask you for items amuse me. X) Earlier today I ran into some... little thing... and he said, "I could go for some Ore." ^^; Fortunately, I was able to indulge him.

The mood you describe yourself as having in this entry is much like the mood I'm usually in when I watch Kare Kano. ^^ I agree with you, actually...and having read deeper into the manga it becomes very clear that it's more about just a "boyfriend" and "girlfriend." Love takes many forms, and all of the characters experience love in one way or another. Familial, friendly, romantic, even self-love (by which I don't mean narcissism, although god knows there's enough of that too :).

Sorry, don't know why I'm going off about this.

Don't worry ... you can ramble on however much you wish! ^_^

That's the only time you will be able to battle with the book in the library of Alexandria. Otherwise, after the summoning of Alexander, you won't be able to. I got into some trouble with him too, but luckily I won after two resets of the game and hairtearing moments xD. And I think when you are in the party with Garnet and Steiner and came to Treno, that's the only time you'll be able to battle with the monster in that cage...I think it gives you some kind of item that allows you to learn Auto-Haste or Auto-Regen. I'm leaning into more of Auto-Haste.

The cat that asks for Diamonds, it will never go away. I usually battle it since it gives you 10 AP, that's a lot considering that others doesn't give half as much. Now on the green dragon, that's a toughy. I died countless of times stumbling into him :|. But he's a good enemy to level up.

After the summoning of Alexander, I suppose I did get the last laugh at the book, although it kicked the stuffings out of me. XP Unlike it, I am still alive!

My advice for you is to grab Freya and go on a dragon slaying quest. If youv'e gotten Dragon Crest attack, then you should keep on killing dragons. The more you kill, the more powerful that attack gets (and it costs a measily amount of MP! ^^;)

The cool thing is that the amount of damage the attack does never changes. Defense, magic D, nothing gets in the way. It will do 9999 to a small enemy and 9999 to the last boss of the game. It's really handy ^^

Same thing with Zidane's thievery and Quina's frog drop thing too.
