Are you at the beginning of Trigger or the end? I was thinking you were already done and wrapping this up, but if you're bumming around the Millennial Fair and talking about saving up for the Lode Sword, you may still be early!

Regarding Persona, I actually have only played the first one. And I got horribly addicted to the casino games and tried to get lots of cash so I could buy all the best gear... and ultimately I burned myself out and quit playing it, haha... It definitely wasn't a great game, though. There were some interesting elements, but yeah... it wasn't a great game by any means and even though I want to play through all the games, I don't think I'm interested in going back to try it again.

Once life slows down I'm going to dive back into FF15. I'm hellbent on finishing it. Did I tell you that I also tried the FF15 mobile version? It's surprisingly good and more linear, so there's no open world, but there are still quite a few side quests you can do. I was playing it back in October and have decided to play it alongside FF15, so I can have pretty simple comparisons.

I've been watching this show called Hilda with my kids. It's pretty solid for a kid's cartoon. I sort of want to watch Avatar: The Last Airbender, seeing that I've never watched it. I hear it's really good, and there is a live action Netflix version coming out soon.

Anyways, I'll holla at ya later. Hope you're doing well!

I'm at the beginning. Yes, I am bumming arnd. the ground level of the Millennial Fair. I'm just trying to get the max. Cat food. And I'm trying to figure out the 7 Judges/Everyone is just stalking you deali-o. So I'm trying to talk to everybody, always buy something cause "No windowshoppers!" and hit up everyone's text boxes. The lady in front of the tent is really hard cause she counts your Silver Points and so does the one guy in the inside-partition by hisself. Anyways Once I get all the cat food, I'll explore the uh-stairbs.

Um. I actually really like Revelations Series Persona. HAHAHAHAHA Its like really personal to me cause at this point in my lifes I just kinda reflect back on my High school years, and it kinda connects. So.................. I just finished the S.e.b.e.c. building and I'm in the other school. I just dumped all my Spell cards and got new Personas. I'm just trying to make it to the Black casino or whatever and do what you were doing like get horribly addicted to the mini-games and upgrd. everyone's gear. If you just do a little bit everyday you won't burn out, ...... I've been at it for years and RPGs have never burned me out......

Yeah, you mentioned FF15-mobile.
I'm still writing for Survivor. I just finished Survivor 2 The Australian Outback last night. I'll probably pick a newer season next now lol.
M-hmm, if you want me to try the Discord again just holla at me, maybe I'll just sit in there, be quiet and not say anything, lol.....

If you want to wait until like December 24th, I'll jump in and play with you and that can be the Winter 2023-2024 jam game. I'm still in, although I may have to go even slower than I did with LUNAR 2 - I just literally don't have the time to game like I did a year ago.

Up to you, man. I'm not going to push it. I know you said you're not keen on group chats and stuff. If you want to pop back in, feel free, if not, no pressure.

Not too much going on over here - just trying to survive the holidays. Hope you're staying awesome and keeping cool.

Sure!!! If you want I can just concentrate on getting the max. level Cat food, and not even *BUMP* in- to Marle, on the 2nd ground floor, yet!!! We can totally play Follow the leader and you can lead the way and tell me tidbits on stuff abt. the game that I haven't noticed or picked up yet. Kinda just like what we did with LUNAR 2, but the reverse that was more my game and this's def. more your game!!! I'll be looking forward to it man.

Once I get the Cat food to reach the brim of the bowl in Crono's room, I still have to do the other two Tent of Horrors games, too, as well. So, I'll just keep bumming and waiting for you. *Toot-doo-too!*

Alright. I'm sure I can pencil in the Compendium into my Discord. I'm way different in chats than I am online, I'm literally like so eager to talk. The people seem a lit'l weird though but I think everyone's a weirdo.

Right on, dude! Sounds like a plan!

I'm also going to try to squeeze in a little bit of Final Fantasy Dimensions II while we play. Since some of it's plot is what was originally Chrono Break, it makes sense to have the plot actually understood and archived for analysis. I'm going to be doing that, but only playing in like 30-minute increments once a week -- I don't have time to do it all now, so I'll have to chip away at it week by week for the next year or so.

In other news, it's finally the holiday season and I have a few days off. I'm beyond excited. We're doing some traveling to visit family, so I'll be offline entirely for a few days. What are you guys doing for Christmas? Any fun Filipino traditions that would stand out?

We also lost one of our chickens yesterday. We started with 8 chicks about 3.5 years ago, and surprisingly all of them made it to adulthood. We ended up losing some here and there - a few to dogs, one to a hawk attack, etc. We've also added a few as people who have "pet" chickens decide they no longer want them, so we slowly introduce them to our flock.

One of those was a little cream-colored bantam brahma, who my kids named Marigold. She was the smallest chicken by far, and my Americauna and Brahma often pushed her around just due to the norms of chicken pecking order. She eventually got tired of it and decided that she no longer wanted to roost with the other chickens, and she would fly into a nearby tree and perch for the night. She was surprisingly intelligent and affectionate for a chicken, and liked to be pet and hand-fed.

Hawks and even an owl have made a play at her before (due to her size), but they finally won out yesterday. We found a tuft of white feathers near the coop, and it's clear that there was a struggle. We found a few feathers across the field headed to nearby woods, which is where we know both the hawks and owls live. Alas, but it's the natural circle of life.

Our chickens are sort of like pets, so my kids were a little sad. But again, they recognize it as the natural course of things. They still won't let me harvest any of our chickens for meat, though, hahaha! We're going to get some more in the spring and expand our flock. It'll never be as large as yours, but a dozen or so for eggs would be good.

[Hey, Boo let me just playtest (get all my games in order for the day and have a thought) and I'll repond.]

Hey, Boo sorry I fell asleep. In terms of Final Fantasy I did mention in the Discord that I was playing Final Fantasy VIII. During my teenagehood I kinda went through this phase where I thought "boring" was "normal" and school, work, college was all boring? And other people liked that as well? So I'm kinda re-playing it and it is boring and normal. With the gray and everything. I also kinda mentioned I wanted to print out an actual Triple Triad deck like print out the individual cards and maybe laminate them. LOL

Um, for Christmas my Mom just gets a holiday ham and I kinda eat ham sandwiches for a few weeks at school thereafter. Um, we got a real Christmas tree one time. lol Usually when we go to the pumpkin patch or the parking lot with all the trees we get some really bad batch ones. So my Dad kinda stopped going. And one time the thing you use to hold the tree up screws and everything scratched the hardwood floor and my Mom got so mad-upset. Besides going to church, we don't really do anything "Filipino?" I just kinda hang out online on Christmas day and see what other people are playing/usually whatever RPG? My parents I dunno.

As you know I live on a chicken farm. We haven't lost any chickens lately but, my Dad needed my tweezers to get rid of some sorta bulge/bump in the throat of one of the chickens that was sick? He said he cleaned it off with alcohol but.

Also, they talk about the "pecking order" a lot on Survivor. How literally the weakest one gets pecked by all the other chickens to death. And its a lot like how lifes works? One of the boys said he took care of the goats they're all the way in the back. And um my neighbor-friend isn't really keeping any cows in my field, I dunno, why lol? Usually he does. And he usually comes in with dried grass to feed the goats but he hasn't been? We haven't been filling our fishpond lately usually we put a couple live fish in there and they do their thing and multiply.

I'm playing (Rn:)
- Revelations Series Persona - I made it to the Black Market and the casino items are all fusion items..? Or their weapons that you don't really need cause why wouldn't you use your Personas? I could get some armor if they have any. lol Well, I'm addicted to playing Poker and Big and small, and I notice there's a new Dice Game. And I have some Metal Cards that dropped for Code Breaker I haven't tried out yet.
- Chrono Trigger - I stopped at 104 Cat food, I'm gonna try to earn more Silver Points and do the other 2 games at Bekkler's.
- The Last Guardian - My dog thinks she's a boy. She's kinda of a scared of this game, so I'll put it away for now even though I was so looking forward to it on PlayStation 3.
- Secret of Mana - Just kinda trouncing through it, prouncing arnd. my back yard.
- Yakuza 0 - I beat it already and did a clearfile, now I started New Game + and I'm gonna try to do all the lit'l minigames for the trophys.
