Lotsa stuff  

Job Stuff

Monday morning i emailed someone i worked with at my last two places of employment who is currently at the company co-founded by another ex-coworker.

I emailed him instead of the founder guy because i'd worked with him more recently and knew him a little bit better. However it's wednesday afternoon now, and i still haven't heard anything. I'm wondering at what point i should try emailing the other guy, or give up and use their "jobs@" address.

I'm thinking maybe friday afternoon or monday morning.

Lunch Stuff

Went to the village to deposit a check this morning, and since i was out i decided to get some lunch. However i wanted to make it at least somewhat healthy, so i went to Wendys and got a salad. I got the spring mix salad, or something like that, because it was a dollar cheaper than the other salads and it didn't have any chicken or bacon or chilli in it, so it should theoretically be better for me. I even got the low fat honey mustard dressing :)

However my only complaint is that they fill the bowls up to the very top with salad, and then put a perfectly flat lid on top. Which means you can't actually mix the dressing into the salad without making a huge mess. I tried piling the top part of the salad on the lid so i'd have some more room, but it still didn't work very well. Perhaps next time i should just throw away some of the extra lettuce from the bottom.

FF10 Stuff


I spent ten or fifteen minutes playing the butterfly game, and after five or six attempts i finally got all the butterflys. Then i saw a chest falling out of the sky, and i have no idea where it went!!! I accidently wandered into the next screen, and when i came back the butterflys were back! Did i screw it up and have to do it again? Where's the bloody chest?? =P

Still building up Kimahri and Rikku while procrastinating about a decision on what to do with them. Meanwhile i've run into other sphere grid problems.

Auron is now at a point where he could use a Level 2 Key and take a 5 sphere detour (there and back again) to get Haste. He could just transfer over to Tidus' path as well, but that would be kind of silly.

For Lulu i have to decide whether or not to take a 4 sphere detour to get Demi, and a 3 sphere detour to get Death. A little after that i have to decide if i want her to go down the path towards DoubleCast or up to Flare instead. Of course that will only be an issue if i've found both a Level 3 Key and a Level 4 Key by then.

I didn't really like the chili at Wendy' anyway. I had the taco salad on Monday. It wasn't bad, but I've had better.

I've not had taco salad from too many other places, so i can't really make a fair judgement. The whole idea seems a little weird though :)

Butterflys: Um, I think if you may have to do it over. -_-; But hey, if it's the first butterfly course you ran into, at least it's not the really insanely hard one... heh heh... I just about threw a controller out the window trying to do the hardest butterfly course (which I think you can only do after coming back w/ the airship, though I'm not sure).

I have a vague memory of running into some enemies that Demi was quite useful on... especially when DoubleCast'ed. I think it was some big puddings or something. Flare is useful too, of course. Oh, if you're already contemplating which big spells to go after later, I should note that when I got Holy for Yuna (I think some time a little after getting the airship) she suddenly became one of my most effective killing machines for a short while before the physical people caught up with her again. It was kind of disturbing.

I finally finished both the butterfly games, and yes, i had screwed it up by wandering off screen =P

The second one (the first one i tried) was pretty easy, but the second one was tough even at this level. I'm not looking forward to it after they shorten the time even more =P I did get some cool items for it. 2 Elixers and 2 Megelixers i believe.

I decided to make the sidetrip to Demi, and probably will for Death as well, just so Lulu has the full set of magics. However it sucks that it's slowing down my progress towards the Ga spells =P

All of the sudden Wakka came out of nowhere to be the most powerfull attacker, stronger that Lulu's Ra spells. If i Cheer him on with Tidus it gets really insane :) If i set up the elements right he normally does well over 2000 points of damamge, while Lulu's Ra seplls do about 1500 to enemies weak against that element. After a little bit of cheering Wakka took out Seymour with two 3500 damage hits :)

I don't think I even bothered with the butterflies until endgame, when one batch of them has an item needed for Kimahri's ultimate weapon. Damn minigame still gives me nightmares.

Wow, I don't remember my Wakka being that powerful mid-game, but that's probably because I didn't use him a ton so he must have been farther behind the level curve than yours.

Speaking of Ra and Ga spells, that reminds me of a fun tactic I stumbled into in FFX-2. There job skills are arranged more like a tree than a path, so for example Fire unlocks Fira unlocks Firaga, and I'm sure you can see where this is going. It's possible to teach a black mage at *one* Ga spell fairly early in the game if you ignore other elements, and then use it to blow the living hell out of some early bosses. Fun.

I've commented about this before, but oh my goodness! It truly is bizarre that I get so giddy when I see you post about your eating habits. I'm such a weirdo! But I can't help it! I see "Lunch Stuff," and I go, "Yay!" ^^;; Anyway, I hope I amuse you as much as I amuse myself. LOL ^__^
