Visual Boy Advance again, problems, and my Chinese name

On Sara M.'s recommendation, I finally found a version of Visual Boy Advance that didn't have screechy noises while playing games! (very limited testing on a MOTHER 3 rom) Maybe this will solve my problems with FINAL FANTASY IV ADVANCE and BREATH OF FIRE 1, but I suspect that those are related to the roms themselves, in which case I am screwed! It's a good day to shower and do some laundry, though.

Your Chinese Name is Li

This name means "logical and reasonable." It's a perfect fit for someone who never loses focus.

Your mind knows no limits. You always allow yourself to dream big.

You are wise and bright. You reason through your problems quite well.

You are a thrill-seeker. You are constantly looking for excitement.

Eric got on MSN this afternoon to ask if I'd changed my mind about Illuminate tonight; nope! I did take the opportunity to ask if he was going on Sunday to Jon's thing at Jeremy's, and figured he'd be out all day what with the football game / Alistair and all. Good thing I have my ways, hahaha. He said he could ask Ivan for me about Sunday if I'd like, but my plan is to sleep in, man! I have given up on MOTHER 3 since the ocean is too challenging without infinite air! LUFIA AND THE RUINS OF LORE just crashed on me, too!

I got a rare MOTHER 3 enemy on the highways: A BRIGHT SMILE!

Do You React Like a Cat or a Dog?

You React Like a Cat

You are introverted and mysterious. People are curious about what makes you tick.

You trust your intuition. So far, it has a good track record of not leading you astray.

You have an amazing amount of strength. You refuse to let stress bother you.

You don't mind if the world doesn't understand you. No one is going to harsh your mellow!

Chimera Lab washroom save frogs, Eric Ho, and James

Tried calling Chinese Eric at 7:30, but his mom said he was sleeping; hey, I had something VERY IMPORTANT to tell him, man! Then James got on YM to talk about stuff, so it's fine. At 10:20, Eric called back - I talked to him about Sunday at 6, so he says he'll call me on Saturday evening or get me online, whichever works! I also told him the very important news, so we talked about congratulations, cards, Jeremy, Danielle / Nathan being very busy, health, doctors, Christon, Eric M. / Alistair / the football game on Sunday, and keeping things on the down-low! (hey, I thought exactly the same thing before he said it!) Now my heart is happy! (and the Internet is back after a very brief outage - I think I restarted my router, and that did it)

I found another save frog in yet another washroom for Jamie (jaebird), this time in the MOTHER 3 Chimera Lab:

Mason Raymond, Christine, and crayons

YAY! MASON RAYMOND IS CLEARED FOR CONTACT! I also talked briefly to Teunis on MSN about beds and feelings - always good! Christine's also reinstated her FB, so all is well in that way. :D

You Are Ready for Good Times and Bad Times

You have a knack for predicting the future and reading people. You see so much.

You are simply a good person and a person of substance. You don't need to show off.

You are both gentle and affectionate with everyone you love. You are a true nurturer.

You spend a lot of alone time meditating and thinking. You value your alone time more than anything else in this world.

Christine, 5-1 loss to Blackhawks, Eric and Illuminate snacks

Discovered that Christine B. deleted her Facebook, or something. ODD! Talked briefly to Teunis and Vanessa on MSN before GAMING TIME! The Canucks lost 5-1 to the Blackhawks! Eric called me right when the hockey game was ending to see if I was going to bring snacks to Illuminate on Friday, and if I still didn't want to go. Too much stuff going on around here when it's Friday now, so NO! I respect that he's trying to get people to bring snacks, but I'm not going to be there! I've also been reading Mother 3 interviews and theories for at least two hours. Suppose it should be bedtime soon, especially since it's almost 4 AM.

Holiday Wishes 2011 / First Date Movie Test

Heard there might be snow soon... in that case, I'm going to stay here ALL the time!

Holiday Wishes 2011

1. New friends. I like hearing new perspectives, and everything else!
2. Cards / postcards. I like getting mail that isn't junk or bills!
3. Chocolate or candy from other countries. I like trying things that aren't available here!
4. Stickers. Yeah, I'm a kid at heart.
5. BPAL. I've heard about it in the last few years through HOLIDAY_WISHES, but have never tried it! I might like it, you never know...
6. Books and bookmarks. I read a lot, and go through these things like nobody's business! I like epic novels, and USED is perfectly fine!
7. RPG recommendations. I've recently gotten into playing classic RPGs, and like the ones such as EARTHBOUND and DRAGON WARRIOR.
8. Dragons! No, not a real fire-breathing one. I've just always loved dragons for years. Guess it comes with being a FIRE DRAGON in the Chinese zodiac.
9. Dark fuzzy socks! It's going to be cold, so these would be much appreciated!
10. Gift cards to places like London Drugs, Wal-Mart Canada, and Safeway Canada. Not sure if I could use US gift cards in Canada...

You Think Love Should Be Exciting

You're not sure if it's love unless you're thrilled to see your sweetie every single day.

When you fall in love, you get totally swept off your feet. You can't think about anything else.

You tend to have crushes on charming, magnetic types. You love to flirt.

People are attracted to you because you keep them on their toes. You are delightfully high energy.

Gotta call Chinese Eric! / Peace, Love, Unity, and Respect

Vanessa tried calling me when I was still asleep, and THEN attempted to talk on MSN when I'd signed in. I eventually signed off because I was busy catching up! She said she'd call last night, but didn't! That reminds me: I should really call Chinese Eric this week to see if he's going to Jon's dinner at Jeremy's. Good thing he understands about stuff, for sure!

You Are Love

You can easily see the beauty in others. You appreciate them, and you never cling too tightly.

Thoughtful and caring, you often put others' needs first. You like to look after your friends and family.

You are very compassionate, and you offer comfort to those around you. You take care of people.

You are warm and welcoming. You will go the extra mile to make someone feel included.

I just went to Thomas' Bazaar in Tazmily (replaying MOTHER 3), and got two rare items! (the Innit Tea and Better Stick, which is a GREAT weapon!)

SINISTRALS puzzles hurt my head! / ANGRY BIRDS

I tried LUFIA II: THE RISE OF THE SINISTRALS, but the puzzles just hurt my head, so it was back to Vizzed and MOTHER 3. At least I hope the game won't crash on me, OR lose my save data! (Jon LIKED that my save data was lost - what a troll...)

Got this ANGRY BIRDS tagging picture from Priscilla's friend Alyssa:

Islanders, Lucic, LUFIA FORTRESS done, PASTA TWINS, and views!

The Canucks won 4-1 over the Islanders last night, so YAY for that! (EMPTY NETTERS! DAVID BOOTH! AARON ROME! CODY HODGSON! HENRIK SEDIN!) I also finished LUFIA AND THE FORTRESS OF DOOM - betrayal and memories, indeed! Then I heard that Milan Lucic has NO suspension for deliberately running into Ryan Miller - ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! UGH! Christine Bennett and I are going to be pasta (penne?) twins tonight, haha.

You Are Simplicity Oriented

While there is a lot of ugliness in the world, you believe that almost no one is beyond redemption.

You take each day as it comes and simply try to do your best. You try not to be hard on yourself.

A great communicator, you can get along with almost anyone. You are very accepting.

You are simply a good person. You have high standards you uphold, but you don't boast about your morals.

Sugar cubes make mouths tingly?!

When Eric picked me up for church this morning, he commented that I was unusually chipper for the morning, so I said that I'd banned someone already. We discussed that, journals, Ivan, my "long" receipts as proof that I spent thirty thousand dollars, rides, turn signals, cruising, germs, the West Final CFL game next week, karma, voting, Alistair getting tickets, Christon's emails about dinner, Christmas plans, Geoffrey's address, Bible Study, my blue toque, Paul shitting on my hospitality, and my standing up to people. Also talked about the Grey Cup game being in BC, Pastor Tom's last Sunday, glaring at people, his doing SOUND at Illuminate on Friday (a praise and worship service?!), snacks, Daniel Fellowship, my being "drunk," Christmas tunes, DARKWING DUCK / Dave Wong, exes, grudges, the emulator crashing (I swear I'll have to use Vizzed to play MOTHER 3), and more. When I got into church, I told Randal that he looked warm with his scarf, so he said that my toque looked just as warm. Um, yeah? That's kinda what it was designed for... why I even talked to him, I have NO idea.

I talked to Nina and Gerard about Awana, yesterday's shopping, Christmas plans, our weeks, brandy beans, Timothy Fellowship, and more. While that was going on, I saw Paul talking to Mr. Creep - YIKES! Then I was a sneaky ninja and gave the bag of Maynard's Swedish Berries to David Ho - HE could give it to Hien for me, haha! (she thanked me later, even though she'd told me to KEEP THEM!) I said hi to Nathan W. before settling down in a pew, which I actually got all to myself today. After service, I talked to Jeremy about work, Eric's mustache, and a possible Jon birthday dinner - he had to check his calendar, heh. Saw Jordan and Thomas eating sugar cubes because of the tingle - of course it's going to be sweet, kids! Discussed stuff with Andrew before going upstairs: SNES games, emulators (which I've now linked him to), TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, and more. Said hi to Stella and baby Ava, Tim, Jon C. (who's getting baptized next week), Mike K., Sonya, Stanford, Calla, Frances, Micah, Isaac, and others. Margaret tapped Amasiah on the shoulder, and she thought it was me - nope!

Saw Jessie, Rachel's grandma, Anastasia and her dad Danny, Mattias, James, Ramen, Shira, Ashley, Alexis, and a new ten-month-old baby at Toddler Sunday School. James climbed into my lap and wanted me to read a DORA THE EXPLORER book to him... okay, I was up for that briefly! I talked to Mattias about tow trucks, to Shira about coloring, to Ashley about toys, to Alexis about silver balloons, and to the new baby (referring to her as "baby") about toy eggs and such. She seemed to have fun, and cried when her grandma put her in the stroller. I guess I am good with kids to a certain extent!

Went downstairs to wait for Eric (who was listening to Stanley's guitar playing), and talked to Grandma briefly before Auntie Anna came to pick her up. I just let her think that Jon had left already, haha. Vivian hadn't seen Eric when I asked her - DAMN! (also talked to Auntie Catherine briefly) When we finally got going, we talked about forgiveness / toxic people / tact / microwaving instant noodles on Friday at church (I WILL STAY HOME!) / spending time with people / Mr. Creep / naming people. Got home and called Steph briefly, then talked to Jon a little longer about stuff. Now I can game in peace!

Turning on the heat / Egyptian goddesses

Last night, I had to turn on the heat as I put a bunch of chocolate in Ziploc bags before putting it in the fridge - I couldn't stand the cold anymore! Since I also told Eric that if I were awake / with it enough, I'd go to church, I guess I'm going today since I was awake at 7 and up half an hour later. (also discovered redrum - THANK GOD FOR REINFORCEMENTS!) I also banned someone this morning from GJ RQ, after making a Nutella sandwich for breakfast. :D

You Are Ma'at

You believe in doing what's right. You have the inner strength to stick to your guns.

You have a quiet spirituality and balance to you. You don't preach; you lead by example.

You are peaceful and serene. You try to make life go as smoothly as possible.

You have a reassuring nature. Your friends find you to be both soothing and comforting.
