    Crazy Dreams

    My recurring dreams are about the end of the world or secret passages. I've also always had nightmares about my dad. A while ago I dreamed that I killed him by pushing him out of a spaceship. When I was little I used to have what are called night terrors, which are like nightmares, but you can't remember them, and you just scream and cry and sometimes sleepwalk. Like Miss Anonymous, I've had weird dreams about being naked or topless too. Those were probably the weirdest ever. *shudder* I've also had dreams about the future that I don't remember until the event happens, commonly known as "deja vu".

    Gaming What Are You Playing?

    Indeed, Chrono Trigger never gets old. I want to play it right now actually. Especially after reading these: [URL="http://chronocompendium.com/Articles.html"]http://chronocompendium.com/Articles.html[/URL] I also never get tired of EYEZMAZE games. Right now, I'm playing Ragnarok Online: Lightside Legend (I'm not very good at this game) and Final Fantasy XII on the weekends. That's all I have time/money for. RAWRRR Stupid school and work getting in the way of my gaming.

    Anime Most twisted, disturbing character/event/whatever

    I haven't seen a lot of disturbing anime, because I generally don't watch that sort of thing, but I will say, it kind of freaked me out in Xam'd Lost Memories when Furuichi [spoiler]tore his own head off.[/spoiler]

    Anime Villains You Just Can't Help But Like

    Vicious from Bebop. Katana, hair, attitude, the whole shebang. He's always been my fav. Also, a lot of the Dragonball villains were pretty hilarious. The Ginyu force and their silly dance. Majin Buu turning people into candy. Etc.

    Anime Comfort Anime

    I like watching Miyazaki films when I am stressed or upset. They are always a total escape from reality, and they always have happy endings. I especially like Spirited Away for this. I just imagine taking a nice hot bath and eating some spirit food.

    The Thanksgiving Thread!

    [quote name='Lunox'][font=trebuchet ms] 1. Go home 2. Cry over my GPA 3. Drown my sorrows in television and food 4. Study [/font][/QUOTE] I am the same as you. :animedepr Except I am going to help my mom cook up a lovely roast, and maybe that will cheer me up.

    What are you The Best at?

    I am the best at not giving up. I've faced and failed at nearly everything, and I still keep going. I am the best at aggregating obscene amounts of anime wallpapers on my computer that I'll never use. I am the best at regulating my weight. My weight has not changed for about five years. Lastly, I am the best at keeping my hair neatly parted in the middle.
  8. Wow. An anime family. What an exciting life that would be... Mom: Zeniba from Spirited Away, because she can be very tough when she needs to be, but deep down she is very gentle and wise. I also like her house. I would want to live in that house; it's very peaceful. Dad: Jet from Cowboy Bebop. He is a very kind and nurturing person even though he acts all tough. He really loves his dog and his bonsai, which is shown by how much time he spends with them. He is also very generous to take Spike, Faye, and Ed under his roof and give them friendship and fatherly guidance. These are the reasons I think Jet would make a great dad. Uncle: Dr. Brief from Dragonball. He's a little old for the role, but I want him for an uncle, because that man is a genius. Sister: Agreed from an earlier post, I believe Lin from Spirited away would be an amazing sister. I totally fell in love with her character when I first saw that movie. She reminds me of my own big sister a lot, with her attitude covering up a sweet interior. Brothers: Kai from Blood+, because he is very protective of his younger siblings. Also, Calcifer from Howl's Moving Castle, because even though he has a curse, he manages to be silly and funny, and the work he does keeps everything together. Nephews: Markl from Howl's Moving Castle and Jim from Outlaw Star. Both boys are very cute, yet still very intelligent for their age. Pet: Mao from Darker than Black, because he talks.

    High School Lunch Food

    At my high school, yes, the food was nasty. Moldy cordon bleu, ground beef that tasted like horse, and all other manner of culinary abominations. However, please do not blame the lunch ladies. They are probably even more disgruntled than you are. They are doing the best they can with what they are given. If you have a complaint, it would be best to speak to the higher-ups. I would approach the kitchen manager, and if one is not available, call the principal's office or the district office. Also, it is always best to use courteous tones if you want something done. For example, do not call your lunch ladies "fat and lazy" or else you will probably get something even worse in your lunch than what you already have. ;)

    Breakfast Anyone?

    Ahh, breakfast. A meal often missed. I love food, so whenever I have enough time to eat between waking up late and getting to class late, I snack on whatever's in my cupboard. I do enjoy a big farm breakfast every now and again, but I'd be perfectly content with a bowl or two of cereal every morning, preferably with fruit inside.

    TV What Are You Watching?

    Right now, at this moment, I am watching American Idol. Music is delicious, and since I sing I like to listen to other people sing too. Simon. Damn he is mean. I bet he and Gordon Ramsay are going to get in a fight. XD As for what I am watching in general: Lost (and Life on Mars since it comes on right after Lost and has to do with time travel), Xam'd Lost Memories (streaming), Star Ocean EX (streaming), and that's it I think.

    Gaming Scariest Video Game you ever played

    [quote name='red tigress']I thought LoZ: Ocarina of Time was super scary. Those undead things? Scared me to death. I couldn't beat the whole undead dungeon until I was 19 (am 22 now) because it was pretty terrible. If I got stuck in Hyrule field when the sun went down, I would hide in the river next to the castle all night (until I had the Sun's Song) so the skeleton dog things wouldn't get me.[/QUOTE] oooo *shudder* those things frighten me too. Even the ones from cartoony Wind Waker scare the crap out of me with their eerie screams. Another game that scared me is Resident Evil. Those games have always bothered me, ever since I saw the opening cinematic to...one of the playstation ones, where the woman goes into the diner and the guy is just crouching there and he turns around and he's a ZOMBIE!!!!!!! ALSO---Doom for the Super Nintendo, for obvious reasons. That thing gave me nightmares.

    What's your ringtone?

    [quote name='Ezekiel'][SIZE="1"]Ufufu, my text message ringtone is the[B] FFXII Victory fanfare[/B]! I wish I had the FF7 one, but I'd feel like a fake seeing as I haven't completed it. Also, the XII version is more orchestral and dramatic. My phone call ringtone is [B]Returns a King[/B] from, yes, [I]the 300[/I]. Because I am so damn epic I simply can't have anything else.[/SIZE][/QUOTE] :animedeprI have the ff7 one and I have hardly played that. Are you calling me fake? I also have some Elton John song for my best friend. (God knows why she picked that, she doesn't even listen to him. ) I have a rap song about Yoshi from Super Mario for my other best buddy. And my default ringer is the Chocobo theme from Final Fantasy, not sure which one.

    Summer Jobs?

    My first summer job was construction and lemme tell ya, it didn't pay much. Anyway, now I'm happy to have a job that I can work all year round, even during school. YAYFUN. But at least I'm making a difference. We work with adults who want to continue their education, mainly the guys at the North Idaho Correctional Institution. I just do office work, but it's something. I have to start looking for a new job this summer though, because this one just doesn't pay squat. Besides, budget cuts will probably get rid of my job altogether. :(

    Anime Any Recommendations?

    You should look at some of the anime from [URL="http://www.bones.co.jp/index2.html"]Studio Bones. [/URL] They are my favs. I'm watching Xam'd Lost Memories right now. I saw Eureka 7 on adult swim last year, which I couldn't take my eyes off of. I also enjoyed Darker Than Black very much. (If you liked the music from Cowboy Bebop, I believe the some of same people worked on the music for that.) Other good anime are:Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Rurouni Kenshin, and Dragon Ball (although some people may disagree with me on that last one).

    Which Came First?

    [quote name='Nerdsy'][color=deeppink]Lot's of species have been killed off. Dodos, for example.[/color][/QUOTE] Yeah but they were killed off AFTER God gave man dominion over the animals. It was our responsibility to take care of them and we blew it.

    Gaming What Game Would You Put Yourself In?

    Well, I'm still living in the past. As far as RPGs, I would definitely put myself in Final Fantasy VI. I think that's the only game where my type of character can be appreciated. T_T For racing, I would want to be in F-Zero. The environments are so amazing in that, and the tracks twirl around and go into tubes and tunnels and stuff!! Plus, I would loooove the chance to drive a hovercraft.

    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

    I saw it. Pitt definitely wasn't at his best. The special effects were awkward. The story was exciting and moving and interesting. Taraji Henson as Queenie, Benjamin's mother, did an excellent job. I think she's the only actor who deserves an award for this film.

    Death Penalty

    [quote name='Drizzt Do'urden']Well death is just unavoidable sometimes. Why should somebody who rapes and murders young women and children (just an example) be allowed to spend the rest of his life not ever having to worry about the struggles of life. The person sentenced to life in prison knows that he'll get 3 square meals a day, get plenty of outdoor time to do with what he pleases. He/she will get to watch televison, an hour of computer time a day, It just doesn't seem fair to me that children that lose their parents to cold blooded murder have to struggle and suffer while their parents killer gets to lounge around. I'm all for the death penalty, as far as the argument goes about us as humans deciding who dies and who doesn't. For one, they felt they could do that and deserve it in return, and for two they show no regard for human life they deserve that in return as well.[/QUOTE] Humans are capable of error, even the "good" ones. What if someone was given the death penalty without being guilty. OR what if someone repented, but was still given the death penalty. It's much safer and more sensible just to let God do His job and keep our filthy hands out of it. Also, have you ever been in prison? It's one of the worst places to be, where rapists and murderers will more likely than not get what's coming to them. The most important thing is to keep people safe from offenders, which might mean spending tax dollars to keep them locked up or to treat them. But then again, our society made them the way they are anyway, so I guess what goes around comes around.
  22. I would obviously have the dragon balls and consequently the Eternal Dragon on the island. That's kinda cheap though. If I couldn't have those, I would have Shippo. He could shapshift into anything I needed.

    Which Came First?

    I'm pretty sure God made two eggs of different sexes, who then bred after they became adults. And the chicks wouldn't have died on their own...Why would God make eggs to start a species and then just let them get killed off? He wouldn't.

    Death Penalty

    The death penalty is murder. Revenge is not justice. If we use the death penalty or even vote for it, we are as bad as the criminals. Edit: we are as bad as the criminals anyway. By killing and pretending it's for a just cause, we are not only setting a bad example for future generations, we are also defeating our own purpose.

    Manga What was your first manga?

    My first manga was either Neon Genesis Evangelion or Ranma 1/2. Those were both at the library in my hometown back when I didn't have money for manga...wait I still don't. Anyway, Ranma was so surprising. I'm sure people gave me weird looks as I was sitting in the library laughing at those. Evangelion was so interesting. The manga prompted me to watch the anime, but I still like the manga better. It was more fast paced yet still more dramatic. Plus, it leaves more to the imagination, which I always like.
