  1. [FONT="Georgia"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="DarkGreen"][B]I can't believe so few people have mentioned the good ol' peanut butter and jelly! That's my personal favorite. :3 I'm really a sucker for the classics: PBnJ and bologna and cheese with mustard. I'm not really adventurous with my sandwiches. When I go to Subway though, I get the Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki toasted with some lettuce. Good stuff![/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
  2. [B][FONT="Georgia"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="DarkGreen"]My sister actually got me into this game a few months ago. To be honest, though, I'm still a newb by most accounts. And yes, a newb. I'm told there's a difference between newb and n00b and I'm the good kind...haha. Anyway, I'm in a guild called Foe Smiters [fss]. They're really getting into Hero's Ascension right now, so if you ever fight 'em, give them a shout out or something. I don't play on their team cuz I'm still too new to do very well. The biggest block with that is I don't have Nightfall yet. I have all the others though, but I need to get Nightfall. My main characters in-game are Tanya Robinsong (ranger), Tanya Phoenixsong (monk), and Deirdre Rowind (assassin) so if you wanna chat, hit me up. :3[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/B]
  3. [FONT="Georgia"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="DarkGreen"][B]I'm actually pretty sad about this. As you all probably know, Farah Fawcett died today too. Her death was different though: she had terminal cancer. Everyone was more prepared. Michael Jackson just dropped out of the blue. He was about to go on tour in London, and I heard he'd just had a physical to get ready for it. And then he's just dead? Just like that? A lot of things have been said about him, but I think now is the time to mourn a groundbreaking musician. I will never feel the same at Halloween when Thriller plays.[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
  4. [FONT="Georgia"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="DarkGreen"][B]What I meant with my schpeal is yeah, maybe you don't have to use it, but those that do will be cheapening the game experience for themselves. I feel like letting the game play the hard parts for you will rob people of the sense of accomplishment you get when you finally make it to the end of a game. I'm guessing a more casual gamer wouldn't feel as strongly about it as I would simply because they've never made it past those hard parts. I've had to return and return and return to the same part of a game and I felt that rush you get when you finally make it through. But I guess if someone would use that technology, they would have just put down the controller and left it at that part of the game anyway.[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
  5. [FONT="Georgia"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="DarkGreen"][B]My dad and I got my mom a 60-minute deep tissue massage at a spa for Mother's Day, so to follow that up is gonna be a tough feat. I think the plan is dinner at home. My mom is gonna grill up some steaks like my dad likes. As for gifts, my dad got into Guitar Hero a while back (a guy who can actually play guitar). Since the new ones came out Rock Band style, adding a drum set and a microphone, my dad's wanted to try the drums. So I think the plan is to get the drum set. Or maybe just a pair of socks. Dads like socks, right? :3[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
  6. [B][FONT="Georgia"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="DarkGreen"]I'm sure most people here are veteran gamers who've suffered through the horrible frustration of the hardest levels and challenges in every game they play. So how does this make you feel? [URL="http://videogames.yahoo.com/events/plugged-in/innovative-nintendo-game-help-system-to-debut-this-year/1326709"]Click Me![/URL] I already commented on this in the comments under the story, so I'll just repost what I put there. That pretty much sums up my feelings about it. I think this seems incredibly lazy. The difference between people who call themselves gamers and people who play games is that gamers face all the challenges. They go through the hardest, most frustrating levels in the games themselves and, yes, oftentimes fight the urge to throw something across the room. But it makes the experience of reaching the end of the game that much more rewarding.It's like a marathon runner making it to the Olympics, but letting other people run parts of his race. Yeah, maybe he'll win, but the medal won't feel as good around his neck as if he had won it himself. But I suppose you won't be required to use the technology. It's just there as an option. I still feel like it will cheapen the game experience though. So what do you think?[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/B]
  7. [SIZE="2"][FONT="Georgia"][COLOR="Blue"][B]A couple of my friends just made a list of 1,000 Reasons to Smile. I helped a bit, as well as all of our friends. I figured it kind of pertained to this thread, so I'll share it with you. Hopefully you find something that makes you smile![/B][/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
  8. [FONT="Georgia"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="Blue"][B]"Is this chicken, what I have here, or is this kitten?" Changes the whole thing completely. But to be honest, just makes me think about all those land fish that'll go hungry when people quit buying tuna. I won't stop eating fish because fish is tasty and delicious. And I happen to like food that is tasty and delicious. I admire what PETA's trying to do, but a fish by any other name would taste as sweet.[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
  9. [B][COLOR="Blue"][SIZE="2"][FONT="Georgia"]If I have to go off the animals I have now, I'd definately say cats are better. My mom has two pomeranians (cute, but insanely annoying most of the time) and my sister has this awesome, laid-back cat. I'd choose the random noms of the cat over the constant, high-pitched, headache-inducing barking of the dogs any day. Though I will say that there is an exception: big dogs. Big dogs tend to be alot easier to get along with, as far as my experiences with them go. They're amazingly less annoying, as long as you keep up with the shedding.[/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR][/B]
  10. [FONT="Georgia"][SIZE="2"][B]I've been watching CNN pretty much all day and my head is full of bailout plan fluff. For those of you who don't know, the $700 billion bailout plan didn't pass. Dow points subsequently dropped 777 points, sending Wall Street into a panic. More info here: [U][url=http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/09/29/bailout.fallout/index.html?iref=mpstoryview]Link[/url][/U] As a senior in high school trying to get her college stuff in order, this worries me. What are your thoughts on this whole bailout mess? What can we do so that we're not left in the street with no money? Who thinks we should just go back to trading and bartering?[/B][/SIZE][/FONT]
  11. [SIZE="2"][FONT="Georgia"][B]I actually work at a Papa John's, so you probably know where I stand. :P People told me that I'd start to get sick of pizza from working there. 5 months in, all it's done is foster my love for pizza, haha. Anyway, my personal favorite topping is regular pork sausage. I've grown to like pepperoni since I've started working at Papa John's. Also, my ideal pizza is a half Meats half Six Cheese on original crust. Mmm, good stuff. It even looks tasty, ya know? Most pizzas look like a greasy mess, but the cheese absorbs the grease from the meats side, so it looks beautiful! Yeah...I'm kind of a pizza nerd. I applied there because I love Papa John's pizza. Pizza Hut can go die. Their crusts are tasteless and their sauce is rancid. And I believed that before I started working too. As for Domino's, I really haven't tried enough of their stuff to pass judgement. PAPA JOHN'S FTW!!!1!11!! P.S: I was drawn to this thread because Vicky wrote it. There's a driver I work with whose name is Vicky, so I was hoping to be like "OMG I KNO U IRL ROFLWAFFLE!!!!". Unfortunately, I recieve no such pleasure.[/B][/FONT][/SIZE]
  12. [SIZE="2"][B][FONT="Georgia"]I think it's awesome that same-sex marriage is legal, especially in a place like California. Such a big place, so many people. That has to have an impact on most people in some way. I mean, as far as modernization in America goes, California's right up there (mostly because of Hollywood and all the insanely rich celebrities, but let's not turn that stone okay?). If they're willing to allow it, why not other states like it, such as New York? What I think is kind of funny at the same time is the fact that the Governator joined the "We have more important things to worry about" troupe. The state's taking a huge step forward, and their governor isn't even on board with it. At least, that's what I've heard. I just think that's funny. I just hope that other states follow California's lead. It won't truly be "the land of the free and the home of the brave" until we're all free to love and marry whomever we choose and we're brave enough to accept one another for our choices. *steps off soap box*[/FONT][/B][/SIZE]
  13. I'm just gonna say this now 'fore I get all analytical on you: my beliefs are pretty confused, which is to say that I'm not entirely sure what I believe in. I'm on the religious fence, as it were. That said, I'd like to make an extremely contrary argument by looking at both sides. >3 On the one hand, there's faith and reason warring. Evolution, yes, is the main divider. If God created us, what's up with the dinosaur bones and carbon dating? If it was only evolution, how is it that on this planet in this galaxy in this cosmos was in perfect position to start creating life? Now there's the other side: faith and reason in relative harmony. You might have noticed how, in history classes, Jesus is referred to as a nonfictional, not-necessarily-religious character in history. Basically, this means that he existed for sure, but whether or not you believe that he was the Messiah is completely up to whether or not you're a religious person. I think that the two ideas can live together in peace on alot of things, but there are just too many inconsistencies between the two for them to be able to shake hands and agree on a single story.
  14. [SIZE="2"][FONT="Georgia"]I had a lot of free time on my hands one day so I started rummaging through my closet to find something to do. Eventually, my hands fell on my copy of Final Fantasy VIII. I hadn't played it in God knows how long and I immediately put it in my PS2 and started reworking my thumb's Boost muscles. I've hardly been able to put down the controller since. I'm not sure what it is about this that makes me so happy because every time something happens, I know how it turns out because I've played it all through before. But the nostalgia I get is overwhelmingly satisfying. Has anything like this happened to you? Or maybe there's a game that you played once before that you'd love to get your hands on again?[/FONT][/SIZE]
  15. [SIZE="2"][FONT="Georgia"]I've generally had some strange experiences with dreams, but the most recent one came to mind when I read the other posts. A few months ago, my friend Lexi became interested in a guy, so she got his phone number and constantly called him and found his house. Eventually, he felt like she was stalking him, so she left him alone and they haven't really talked since. In this dream, I was talking on the phone with her and on a whim, she decided to call him and invite him out to eat. So she three-wayed him and I heard the conversation they had. She invited him to go to Perkins (a "we serve breakfast all day" kinda place), and he thought about it for a minute, then agreed. I don't remember anything after that. The next day, I was talking to her and she said that after she got off work, her and another friend went to Perkins. On this particular occasion, she saw this guy there. When she told me that, all I said was "No way." When I told her about my dream, she was as surprised as I was.[/FONT][/SIZE]
