Guess what! I broke my computer again! I guess when they say that a game isn't compatible with Windows 8, it's the truth. Last night, when I was playing the Sims 2, my whole system crashed. So now I have to fix that all over again.
On the plus side, I found some advice for reviewing that will help with some of the problems brought up in the review discussion. How people think that they have to do a beta-style review with all the technical stuff, and that scares people away from reviewing? Yeah, I found some guide to help with that. I'll spend some time rewriting it and working it out for PC and then post it when my computer's back in business. (Right now, I'm using my tablet, which is okay, if it wasn't for my cat who decides to sit on the keyboard I have for it.)
It was overall quite fun! Much was done and seen, and now I have a lot of Pokemon plushies as well. XD Weather was mostly fine to us, rained on a day we were just moving hotels anyway and snowed once as well which didn't get in the way too much (and amused my friends... I knew snow already pretty well from before though, but it was neat to see again). Tokyo is very crowded at times (the trains especially, but main is their system efficient compared to the rubbish we have here!) and they have a lot of vending machines everywhere. Also good food. =)
Also maybe we ought to run some ideas with game-style threads for fics? (Probably in the writer's longue, but up to you). Seems the story-with-commands deal is going well thus far which is nice. =)
I know what a yowie is, don't worry. That's a thing I haven't heard in years though...
Hardly any snow here in Australia! Have to be in the mountains or on a (large) island-state in winter or cold days for that to happen. So at least that's an advantage of here?
We're going to various, but I don't recall that name. We are however going to Pokemon Centres in Tokyo and Osaka! And leave with light wallets I bet.
Allergic to mangoes? D= Dang, what rotten luck. We have lots of other fruits though...? Food stuff here is expensive compared to other countries though. =/
You should catch up on it then! It has remained entertaining. And Miror B was a great gift, haha. Day off is not too bad I suppose, and I don't mind the concept of not waiting with opening presents as well, heh.
Ooh, I think I heard about that vaguely? Oh well about saving money then. (Especially for myself. Trips to Japan doesn't sit that well with it, haha).
Aw, all those poor yowies must have melted in their fur coats. :C (Please tell me that you might have heard of a yowie, and I don't just sound more insane than what you're used to.)
I was just outside for like ten minutes and my fingers were turning purple because it's really cold and windy where I am. I'm hoping that it would be warmer, at least enough for me to be comfortable outside, but no. It's merely going to snow.
Are there any particular districts that you're heading to in Tokyo? One of my fanfics takes place in Odaiba. Besides, that's also where Palette Town is! Now you have to go! Get a Pokemon!
My friend calls mangoes the "devil's fruit" because she's deathly allergic to them. Not helping your cause. :p
!! Awkward Zombie! I haven't read that webcomic in ages. And Miror B.! Now you can snuggle with him. :3 Also, the only thing I got for Giftmas is a day off from work. My family doesn't wait for present-opening. We buy what we want and play with it as soon as we step out the store.
I do know that 2013 will be the big year for me spending a lot of money. Guess what's going to be a movie~ A movie based on the prequel to my favorite book that I haven't talked to anyone about in ages~ It has a calendar~ To go with my mousepad that I don't have a picture of~
Oh yeah, Australia was pretty much the land of fire for a while there. I should have asked if anyone where I am would have moved down there. It was freezing up here for a while, but it's starting to warm up. The snow we got is starting to melt too. I'll miss winter. But I'm glad that you're not melting as much anymore.
Yay weather talk.
Somehow, I forgot that you were going to Japan! Where about are you heading to? Like are you going to just explore all the various locations, or a particular city? Are you going there just for fun, or is it something for uni? (Ick to another year of that, by the way. Especially Honours. Good luck and all that with the new year!)
Between selling your soul and nearly melting, I'm beginning to wonder about Australia.
