Post Thirty-Eight: J'ai Fini Les Moufles.
And I am getting really, really frustrated with FFX-2. I have 92% complete, and like 6 rounds in the same game. And I do not have the patience to follow a walkthrough. This time, I'm really pissed, because I only got one freakin' "Episode Conluded!" One. In Kilika, I think. And I can't ever manage to get all ten of the Crimson Spheres. I know where they all are; I just can't seem to get them all. And the Vio Infinito is another issue entirely. I have beaten my way through Level 40, I think, that one huge floating elemental that you have to use Table Turner on over and over again to kill. And then? Then I get bored. Yeah. /Game rant.
I re-found this today. Took it, and this is what I got:
1. Neo-Pagan (100%)
2. Mahayana Buddhism (78%)
3. New Age (78%)
4. Unitarian Universalism (74%)
5. Jainism (70%)
6. Reform Judaism (70%)
7. Sikhism (61%)
8. Liberal Quakers (60%)
9. Theravada Buddhism (57%)
10. Bahá'í Faith (56%)
11. Hinduism (53%)
12. Orthodox Judaism (53%)
13. New Thought (52%)
14. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (49%)
15. Scientology (49%)
16. Secular Humanism (45%)
17. Taoism (45%)
18. Islam (42%)
19. Orthodox Quaker (40%)
20. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (29%)
21. Nontheist (28%)
22. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (24%)
23. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (19%)
24. Seventh Day Adventist (13%)
25. Eastern Orthodox (12%)
26. Roman Catholic (12%)
27. Jehovah's Witness (7%)
Amusing, n'est-ce pas? Oh, and speaking of which, I'm in French 3.5 now. Half of my time is with the IV's, half with the III's. I love it. I get the struggles and fun stuff, and the class interaction. But I have twice the work now, until we work something out. It'll take some thought. But I'm struggling a bit, and I LOVE it!!

Post Thirty-Seven: Recent Craftiness
These are mittens I'm knitting for a Yule present. They're a free pattern off of the Lion Brand website. Homespun. They really are rather soft and warm. And a very pretty purple I can't remember the name of. The pictures don't do them justice.
For first mittens, they aren't bad. I still need to weave in some ends inside, and finish the second mitten. It's half done. In that top picture there, you can also see one of my Boye Needlemasters, and two of my self-made beaded stitch markers on the MIP.

Post Thirty-Six: Why?
Now, off to do some research! Maybe my mom can have him in her tank...He wouldn't be bothered by a seven-inch pleco, would he?

Post Thrity-Five: Updates
On the shrug: It is nine and a half inches long now. On the other knitterly objects: yeah...not so much. On the LOV thing: I have turned down pot roast, a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger, and turkey. And discovered that a lettuce, tomato, cheese, and mayo sandwich is not as gross as it sounds. On the fish: He is swimming happily in his bowl/tank/thing, see? I also have a photo of him puffing his gills because the camera was threatening him. Silly boy! And his name is Fishy, BTW. How imaginative, huh?
The first snow of the season has hit us. Just enough to stick, apparently. Just a tiny, tiny bit. Really makes me look forward to that Christmas Parade. Not. But that's Michigan for ya, last night: 65 degrees and a tornado watch. This afternoon: snow that sticks.
How are you feeling with the LOV at school? Is anyone being nasty? Is it hard to find food to eat at the cafeteria?
Oh, I was going to tell you: we drove through your town on the way to Frankenmuth last week (yes, we got lost). My mom usually takes M-52 up to 69 from her old house (we'd stopped to eat lunch there, as it's not rented yet), but then she forgot, I didn't get the map out, and we realized our mistake after we'd passed Webberville on the freeway. I thought I could get us up to 69 from Fowlerville (not as easy as it looked on the flip map), and I was so upset I didn't have your phone number to call and tell you we were driving through.
When we passed your school, I yelled out hello, but you probably couldn't hear me. :)
How was Webbertucky looking? Used to live there, too. Miss it dearly.

Post Thirty-Four: Me, an LOV?
So, if any of you out there can point me in the right direction for some stuff to eat, I'd appreciate it.
For those curious, I chose lacto-ovo because I really do not feel that laying an egg or giving milk, like they are made to do, harm cows or chickens at all. And I wouldn't be able to find anything to eat at school if I cut them out, too. And, well, my boyfriend makes awesome eggs. With basil.

Post Thirty-Three: Tragedy
How incredibly sad. I mean it; I'm crushed. I really loved Armand and Lestat and Louis, and Quinn with all his fledgling issues, and his Mona Mayfair. Tragic. Mon pauvre Lestat! They'll only move on now in the horrible fan fiction of obsessed teens who really a) shouldn't be writing and b) should probably do their homework instead. Seriously, if they would read, they would understand that Lestat de Lioncourt would NEVER say "OMG!! LMAO!!1 tht's so fing sweeet!!!111111!" And that Louis would never simply shoot himself; he KNOWS that won't work, besides the fact that if it did, he's much too graceful for that.
Rest in peace in your ruinned city, my beloveds.
Post Thirty-Two: Woog!
Beautiful, isn't he? A YCL-621 II. Mmm...bassline... ^_^
And now, for your regularly scheduled woog:
Lookie! My first beaded stitch marker! 10mm jump ring, eye pin, and two beads from a "Mass of Glass" tub from Michael's. I need to figure out what to do with the wire on the end, though. Think I might be able to just loop it around and stick it in the bead. Need to borrow those little round pliers from the boyfriend, though. With the loop, the whole thing is about two inches long. I like the process, though. This new crafting adventure is going to be lots of fun, methinks!
And now, some more quizzy crap because I'm bored!
|You Are Likely A Fourth Born|
At your darkest moments, you feel angry.
At work and school, you do best when your analyzing.
When you love someone, you tend to be very giving.
In friendship, you don't take the initiative in reaching out.
Your ideal jobs are: factory jobs, comedy, and dentistry.
You will leave your mark on the world with your own personal philosophy.
This is amusing, because I am in fact a fist born. Yup, oldest child here. I er, edited the code a bit to fix the spelling of "forth" to "fourth" like it SHOULD'VE been.
|You Are 24 Years Old|
Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.
13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.
20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.
30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!
40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.
And my personal favorite:
|Your Seduction Style: Au Natural|
You rank up there with your seduction skills, though you might not know it.
That's because you're a natural at seduction. You don't realize your power!
The root of your natural seduction power: your innocence and optimism.
You're the type of person who happily plays around and creates a unique little world.
Little do you know that your personal paradise is so appealing that it sucks people in.
You find joy in everything - so is it any surprise that people find joy in you?
You bring back the inner child in everyone you meet with your sincere and spontaneous ways.
Your childlike (but not childish) behavior also inspires others to care for you.
As a result, those who you befriend and date tend to be incredibly loyal to you.

Post Thirty-One: Ok, I SWORE I Wouldn't do This
So I was bopping around, and deciede to add some blogthings. But in a reasonable way, by inserting the result in a post and making a nice, neat, ignorable list over in the sidebar of the quizzes themselves.
So, the What Language Should You Learn? quiz. No big surprise, I got:
|You Should Learn French|
C'est super! You appreciate the finer things in life... wine, art, cheese, love affairs.
You are definitely a Parisian at heart. You just need your tongue to catch up...
