  1. That doesn't sound all that shocking of an event, really.
  2. This is kind of what happened to me, only it was after I left university. That time was pretty much the height of my tabletop gaming. I would still play today if I had a crowd of folks that were willing and able to play occasionally on days that I didn't have to be at work. Every now and again, I'll look around online for board game events nearby, but they are usually over an hour away, and sure enough, take place on nights that I have to be at work, 9.999 times out of 10. Guess playing them online is the next best thing I can do, but nothing can beat playing them in person. That's pretty cool about how your U/N came to be. I've wondered about that at times. At first, I thought the "Ardvark" part was the skeletal horse's name from Skyrim in the Soul Cairn. After checking, it appears I was mistaken. The horse's name is Arvak. Fairly close, but not quite.
  3. Slap, followed by a hug. Why not get the best of both worlds?
  4. Little River Band - It's A Long Way There
  5. Sounds like someone's got a case of the Mondays! Just please don't burn down the building, okay? Yeeaaahhhhhhh....... A spoon
  6. Sure, why not? I’ll need to find my old disc and fire it up again to do the comparison though. And yeah, I remember that first jammer shortly after the beginning of the game. Took me a few tries to get through it too. ^^ Always ended up having reinforcements called in on me.
  7. That's a game I haven't played in quite a long time. Back in 2007, I built my first PC, and Crysis was the first game I installed on it and played. I'm kinda curious to see how the remastered version looks on the Switch compared to the old 2007 PC version.
  8. It's been raining a lot lately, but it's also warming up more and more. But, I'm expecting that we're going to get one last cold snap here before Easter. It usually happens every year. Probably confuses the heck outta the trees after they've started putting out their leaves again.
  9. Zechs Merquise (Mobile Suit Gundam Wing)
  10. Working my way through Inuyasha. Just finished watching eps 41 and 42, up to the ep where the Tetsuaiga breaks. It's been so long since I watched this series, I had pretty much forgotten all the storyline. I've seen a few eps that I can barely recall from the two DVDs of it I had bought years ago. It really takes me back to the early 2000s watching this title.
  11. I bought Akira - 25th Anniversary Edition on Bluray. I've mentioned before that Cowboy Bebop, Trigun and Outlaw Star were the anime titles that took me further down the anime rabbit hole as a teenager, and for the most part they did. However, it was both Ninja Scroll and Akira that were my introduction to how bloody, gory and adult-themed anime could be. I watched NS sometime before I watched Akira, and then CB, Trigun and OS I discovered shortly thereafter on Cartoon Network/Adult Swim. I'm sure that compared to other titles that came before them, perhaps even some after, they might be considered rather mild. But for me, those were the first titles of that kind I ever saw.
  12. Super Troopers If only cops could be that cool, minus Farva.
  13. Can't say I had much going on at age 18.5 (currently 37). I had just graduated HS in 2005, and started going to a local community college immediately in the fall afterward, majoring in computer information systems/technology. Second semester in (2006), I got a job working at this chain buffet restaurant called Ryan's Steakhouse... and hated every minute of it. Thankfully, that lasted only a few months before my dad got appointed elsewhere with his job, and we all moved to the region we live in currently. I enrolled in another community college the next county over, and spent a lot longer than one should have trying to figure out what the heck I wanted to do. So, I guess I was trying to figure out what I wanted to go into as a career, while simultaneously discovering how much I hated the odd jobs I had to do to make ends meet. The "trial" period, if you will, of life's subscription had ended at that point.
  14. My brother and I went to eat at our local Mexican restaurant earlier today, and there were two families sitting at a table next to our booth, with about 4 kids. The oldest boy, who appeared to be around 8 or 9, out of nowhere just started singing “Under the Bridge” by Red Hot Chili Peppers. That restored my faith in humanity a tiny bit… 😅

  15. They’re a little bitter on their own, but they aren’t really that bad if mixed in with other greens and veggies. The younger the leaves are, the more tender and tasty they are. I actually found a video years ago where this guy was sautéing dandelion greens with potatoes. Looked delicious, ngl.
  16. Well.... scratch that salad idea off the board. Guess I'll just stick to dandelions and garden veggies.
  17. I gift to you a cross-stitched fox.... At least, I think it's a fox. Eh, kinda looks more like an orange Akatsuki cloud..... Oh, just take it already.....
