A brilliant observation on the part of Dart, from Legend of Dragoon. : D
Sakaki's Observation - Hmm, it's locked, and my resident fire-elemental hothead seems to be somewhat upset. That means that we're going in the right direction! XD
I played a bit of Legend of Dragoon in Lauren's room yesterday evening, feeling all the time that I was somehow intruding (I left earlier than I had to, because I felt that I was being uninteresting). At this point, though it is enjoyable, the game isn't at quite the "refined" level (if that makes any sense ...) of any of the Final Fantasy games that I've played. I like the asymmetrical character designs, but so far, characterization, writing, plot, and whatnot have been fairly average. I am very amused by running away from prison guards, though. "AAAH!! ::proceeds to lead two or three of them around in circles and then loses them by going up a set of stairs::"
There is one thing that Legend of Dragoon possesses which no other RPG that I know of does - VAMPIRE KIWIS!
As far as FFVIII progress goes, I am currently leveling up Quistis, Squall, and Rinoa in Ultimecia's castle. I wonder if I can leave it, and maybe pick up some better weapons somewhere ...? But I'm in a mushed time continuity now ... does the rest of the world exist as I knew it? How can it ...? Only Ultimecia is supposed to be able to live in such a world. My presence is due to my cheesy devotion to love and friendship. : D Am I to believe that the rest of the world feels the same connection to each other and the planet on which they sit? Then again ... it might be fun as hell to try to find my airship in all that mess. : D
What Angel Sanctuary Character are you?
Drat, I've been told this before. Now, even simple quiz results realize it! My diabolical plans of world domination are doomed!
My week of accidental injury has continued, yesterday with my somehow pinching a large kakichunk of my underarm in the joint of those pseudo-sorry-excuse-for-a-desk-things that fold out from auditorium seats. It was a sharp pain, and has resulted in a fairly symmetrical, oval-shaped bruise. o_o
My cut has begun to heal, and if it weren't a cut, it would be a most interesting mark. It has a nice shape and placement. But, goshdarnit, it is a wound after all (on my oft-messy hands, no less!), and thus it is not too nifty.
I want to stay in this room next year, preferably with an individual who is either single or who is capable of devising an overly elaborate communication system on her own which somehow indicates "we are making out, don't come in." This would save the roommate and her significant other some embarrassment, and would be beneficial for me as I would, obviously, not have to see something that I was not meant to have seen. ^_^ The only problem with this desire of mine is that I lack a suitable roommate. XP The people whom I get along with seem rather attached to their single-room status. XP (Sarah, you'll find this interesting. It has been confirmed - my roommate has indeed broken up with her boyfriend, who is also named Brandon.)
Whee, I'm taking the painting course with Lyle over January Immersion. Nine a.m. to three p.m., every weekday but Friday. ART ART ART! (I might expound on this later, but due to a lack of energy, I have no desire to now. Basically, the fact that I can be there, learn, and improve makes me happy.)
I just got my grade back on my last portfolio ... it put me into a combination "goddammit" and "whee!" mood. On the one hand, my teacher actually complimented me, saying that I turned in some wonderful drawings ... but on the other hand, I missed an A by .5 point. .5. (Whatever happened to the concept of rounding up ...? ;_;) If only I had turned in that back drawing ... I'm assuming that my lack of it was what gave me the 9.5 instead of a 10 for amount of work turned in. But I didn't want to turn in something I had turned in last portfolio, so I included other pieces instead. I guess that doesn't work. >.>;
I cleaned my room last night. Note to self - do laundry tonight, because you have no clean clothes left! Be productive! Ask random people to hold their hands in a position for a few minutes so you can sketch 'em. Read more of The Tale of Genji (hit 400 pages today ... still much left to go! I'm really enjoying it)! And ... stuff!
When you type the word "dream" over and over again, it becomes a very depressing word. o_O
