First of all, a meme snagged from lukecanwaltz88
- Bold all of the following TV shows which you've ever seen 3 or more episodes of in your lifetime.
- Italicize a show if you're positive you've seen every episode of it.( Oh God, I really need to find more productive ways to spend my time. )
In other news, I was getting started on the fabric for the dress for chaosblue
when I realized that the flimsy nature of the fabric meant that in order to get it into a position so that I could adequately cut it, I need another set of hands. Guess what hubby gets to help me with later. ^_^
I also finished Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
today. Since I couldn't do what I had originally planned (cut out the pieces for the dress) I had to settle with doing something else instead. I figured that by beating the game, I could then focus on sewing and not have that little voice whispering in my ear, "Finish the game! Finish the game!" Game finished, extra features unlocked (not everything, though, still have some music to get) and I can now replay at my leisure, and not have to worry about unlocking stuff. Ha.
Further more, I'm excited at the prospect of making some new LJ icons. First and foremost, I want to make an icon of Meeko (from Pocahontas
) slamming the compass against the rock with the caption "Work, damn you!" I also want to make a few Fire Emblem icons - mainly of my boys, Ike, Haar, Tibarn, Ranulf, Shinon and Soren (the last two because they're both so bitchy I love them to pieces because of it), and my girls, Nailah and Titania. Nailah was a one wolf wrecking crew (and FAST so she was able to dodge a LOT of attacks) and Titania was a tank on a horse. I actually managed to cap her stats. XD
I've also come the rather amusing realization that most people dislike Micaiah, referring to her as one of the most useless lords EVAR (and giving her the nickname Failcaiah). While I understand the sentiment (she's a mage/sage/priestess, so her HP and other stats end to be crap) I do know that with a little bit of work (and a lot of bonus experience points) she can actually become very powerful. Of course, it really doesn't help that she is auto-promoted, meaning you can't force class changes, leaving her capped out in first or second tier until the story decides to bump her up. Bastards. Of course Ike is the same way - but at least Ike's got strength, speed and HP to spare so he can actually take the damn abuse that a game lord has to put up with. (For the record, the "hero" of the Fire Emblem
games are known as Lords, often because they are of nobility - princes, kings, or lords and occasionally queens or princesses. Ike is the only lord in Fire Emblem
history to not be of noble birth.) Anyway, for all of Micaiah's Mary Sue tendencies and general fail, I don't feel that she's as bad as the rest of the fandom makes her out to be, but of course only one person on my F-list even known what I'm babbling about here, so Megan, if you want to sound off, go right ahead. I'd love to know what you think.
I think that about wraps up my thoughts for the day. I'm gearing up for the holidays, and all in all trying to keep warm because it decided that it's going to be BFC outside. Oh yeah, winter has officially started. We're even supposed to have snow this weekend.
