Was deemed by the Arishok as one who commands a great deal of respect. Was recently thrown out of a wheat field for going against the grain. Once conquered Rhode Island using a can of lima beans, a yo-yo, and a used copy of Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 3 on Blu-Ray. Is a founding member of the band Bladder Failure, whose hit single "Flushed From the Bottom of My Heart" spent nearly six minutes atop the Canadian Top 10 (until the software glitch was corrected). Invented the word "zfaifnv" while trapped in the back of a UPS truck with a flatulent snapping turtle.

ALSO: Does not tolerate use of the word "when" under any circumstance.

[Poll] Do you exercise?

I hiked the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes over the summer, all the way to Lake Michigan. It was more along the lines of torture than exercise. I've taken plenty of leisurely strolls through the woods before, no problem, but hiking over miles and miles of sand is just ridiculous. That being said, I'd do it again in a heartbeat, because the landscape was incredible.

The Ban Game

I ban TangledLion for randomly capitalizing words in the middle of a sentence.

(Not me in the video. That is Russian concert artist, Evgeny Kissin.)
I know that wasn't you. I was being facetious.

The Mess-up A Wish Foundation

Granted, you have joined the Navy and become a nuclear physicist, only to discover that--over the summer--you have forgotten everything you had previously learned and were now totally clueless as to how to do your job. And then... there's like an incident, and you're unable to stop a reactor meltdown, and things explode. It's like, bad, man.

I wish for a more expansive lexicon.

O.o You can't go out in the sun? Really? Show us your fang teeth, vampire!
I can go out in the sun, but not for very long. And my teeth are normal, thank you very much, so there's no freak show to see. :P As a consolation prize, here's a nice picture of my arm:

That's as tan as I'll ever get, and the poor lighting makes me look about 50 times darker than I actually am. XD

The Ban Game

Why does everybody want to go on adventures with me? Seriously, an adventure with me would probably feature an exciting trek to the couch, followed by some quality time with your video game controller of choice. XD

Anyway, I ban pianotm for wearing that ugly suit in the video.

What are you thinking about right now?

Glad the cat came back!

HD Xenosaga

Actually, Mitsuda only scored Xenogears and the first Xenosaga (and he was brilliant, of course). Yuki Kajiura did the second and third Xenosaga games. Her style is very, very different from Mitsuda, and it's jarring at first how different it sounds, but once you get past that, her work is almost as excellent as Mitsuda's.


It's also very, very hawt.
I'm using myself as inspiration, so of course it's hot. :P

[Poll] Do you exercise?

I never exercise, but I don't need to, because my job can be grueling sometimes, and that in itself constitutes a workout.

Computer having issues with recent update

I'm glad I missed out on Vista. My only computer managed to hang on just long enough for Windows 7 to come out. And now I'm hoping that this current one will last until the next decent version of Windows.

And wiping your computer clean really will solve all of your problems, Xenomic. I just did that a few weeks ago after I stupidly clicked on a "Java Update" page that randomly popped up. I didn't think anything of it at the time, because Java had been nagging me to update for ages, so I just said, "FINE" and let it do the update. Of course, I noticed too late that this popup was fake, and installing all sorts of malware on my computer. It took down my antivirus software, crippled the internet... I'm sure there were other ways to solve my problem, but the reformat took care of everything in one fell swoop, and cleared the 50,000 icons off my desktop. My PC hasn't run this well in ages. XD

The Mess-up A Wish Foundation

Granted, but I'm a lizard and need to bathe myself in the sun for hours each day before I can even think about moving, and by the time my cold blood has been sufficiently warmed, it's too late to go anywhere and you've just wasted an entire day.

I wish I could actually go in the sun. I don't tan at all. My skin burns after about an hour outside, turns a nice shade of pink, peels off, and a few days later I'm ghostly pale again. XD
