I love the Frozen Flame. It's probably the most compelling device in the Chrono series. And the music is positively Spekktacular.

...But does the Frozen Flame love Josh !?

If you love the Frozen Flame, you will love this story: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1129088/1/The_Fire_When_it_Comes
It's a cross of Trigger and Cross. It focuses mainly on Magus (derp derp), has a ton of time traveling confusion, lots of humour and drama all at the same time. It gives a lot more story and characterization to the Flame than what is in Cross. It's fairly long (21 chapter, 74.5K words), but it's a great read, and I certainly love it :D

I really enjoyed that one. Very dream-like at times,. Found Kate Winslet's blue and orange colours to be oddly hot.

I love my awesome gf who totally spoils me. Just got my new lappy in the mail and it's charging as I type. Its got a dvd/cd burner (i'll have to go get some blanks!) and internal wifi thingy (that i'll be able to use when i go to the library, yay!). Also got a neat 2gig flash and an external modem (so i can continue to have my 56k at home). SWEET~!!

This is SO bizarre. So I met this guy on this this online server for fighting games back ... maybe 5 months ago or so. So I stop playing because I suck, but we remain friends.

So at some point I add him on myspace  and notice he doesn't have any pictures of himself. He gives me some excuse, so I assume that he's really unnattractive and looks like those typical people who sit on the computer all day and night.

Well he adds me on facebook like... today and I find out that he's really hot XD;. So I tell him I find him to be really hot and he's kind of disbelieving.

LOL. Nothing will really become of it, I just kind of love it how the internet really surprises you every now and then, and how I can just tell a friend I've known for a while that I find him really hot and not be embarrassed over it!

I love the internet. It is a capitalist's dream.

Specifically, it is downright lovely to be able to order stuff that just isn't available in Texas. Miniture Apple Trees (perfect for appartment living) is just one example. My wife loves Coffee Bean tea, and the internet delivers (well, USPS delivers, but only because the internet tells them too).

Though this has also led to a proliferation of boxes and packaging materials, which is less than ideal.

EDIT: Speaking of which, I love that I found a recycle center near where I live. Take that!

To add to that: the computerization of logistics. Gone are the old "six to eight weeks" of shipping and handling time...even for most international shipments.

Lord J - I still feel like I'm still PAYING for 6-8 weeks of shipping sometimes... :)

I just got done plastering my home with Italian notes.  The chairs, tables, plates, bowls, cups, beds, shoes, hats and on and on...looking forward to continuing with it.  I also think I found some Italian speaking groups in the area, so I'm going to try and join them after I get I just a liiiiittle bit of a firmer grasp on conversation.

No need to go in there saying, "The dog is red.  The yellow horse eats.  How many chairs are there?"
