Not much else other than that.

It doesn't feel like I should have time for all this now that I've written it out.

On my way home I spotted three big dogs. They'd gotten out of their yard and were going on a grand adventure. Didn't want them to get lost or hurt, so I corralled them at a park and loaded them into m

I managed to get all prepped for the upcoming Pokemon tournament. Hoping it goes well this time around. Ex and I have been reconnecting. We both admit to making mistakes last time.

Technically I graduated in January from my college in London. But the diploma took forever to arrive. So I did a whole phitoshoot today of the mail arriving/my graduation. Did the program online so I

Finally getting back to working on my writing. Ever since I discovered my passion for Golden Age(-styled) detective novels I've been trying to craft my own mystery worthy of the Dorothy L. Sayer and Christianna Brand greats, but sadly there's so much form and artifice to the genre I have yet to fully master beyond just theory. It just goes to show that you can study and analyze a craft however much you like, but there's no teaching pair greater than Mr. Practice and his partner Mrs. Failure.

Went on a crayon-based field trip today with my son. We made a gift for a friend of ours. ea734dab32cd26a15826bf689fc618c7.jpg

You should've  made me a green one cause I'm that color with envy.

Had an eye exam yesterday. My left eye needs nearly twice as strong of a prescription now.

I've been going to Discord servers I'm in and streaming Dragon Quest: Your Story. The Spanish community seems to enjoy it.

It’s just too bad this hasn’t translated to new, active members on the Den. I remember a huge influx during the IX days, myself included. My theory for this is that a lot of quest information and alchemy recipes and the like could be found on the Den. IX has a lot of item grinding and scrounging stuff up and a number of other post-game activities. You’ll spend more time doing all that stuff than the main story. I know that’s how I found the main site, researching where to find things. There isn’t as much call for that in XI, even though there are still things like alchemy.

People looking for community are going to places you’d expect: Reddit, Tumblr, popular forums like GameFAQs, etc., not realizing there’s also an active forum for Dragon Quest fans in particular.

I do see a lot of new people on the Dragon Quest subreddit, but I really don't think content is really all that good there, to be honest. Most of the time it's people asking what game they should play. Due to how Reddit is structured, threads are there until they aren't popular so everything gets pushed down and then you see the same posts that keep cropping up. This is why I don't like Reddit all that much.

Reddit works for individual content. It’s not really a “community.” Very rarely do you talk to familiar faces and the content is, like you said, mostly people asking questions, and also sharing content that fans of that subreddit would like. I like it for memes and news on deals and some general opinions.

I'm getting kind of worried about PAX. The two things I want to see are likely gonna rely on me getting lucky and getting a ticket for a certain time. Animal Crossing has online registration that I gotta get right at 5pm on Thursday to get a time for Friday. I can likely get into there without a ticket but that line is gonna be chaos. Final Fantasy is doing a ticket system as well but there's limited spaces. They start handing out tickets at 10:30 and once they're gone, they're gone. I'm hoping I get my AC ticket for Friday so I can go to Square first thing Friday and grab a ticket to play Final Fantasy later in the day.

Oof...tickets for FFVIIr? They must be expecting a massive crowd. Any chance you could hit up Michi and try to snag a spot?

I might talk to her on Friday and see if she'd be able to help me out. I don't expect any special treatment but it would pretty cool if she was able to do that for me.

np, but if they have any spare tickets, the sooner you can reach out the better.

I used the site for nearly 15 years without signing up for the forum and I only joined around the time Heroes came out.

Same. I first really started using it in high school to look up DQVIII stuff. (I owned the game, but never actually finished it due to storage and moving).

In 3 hours I will be. I've been watching too much Curb Your Enthusiasm instead.

It’s gonna be an early morning tomorrow. Without going into detail, mom has an operation tomorrow morning at 6:15 AM and it’s been a very long week since finding out last Thursday and waiting for it to come around. Hopefully the end results will give her good news, and if something is discovered we’ll get through it as a family. With like 50+ people for support on mom’s side and the few on my dad’s side, we have plenty of family support.

Keep your fingers crossed for good news, guys.

Larry David is comedic gold. I feel like I'm an ass as much as him (at least in my head) so the show cracks me up more than it should.

Son of a... so I bought a new/couple model year old cheap Roku TV for out in the garage where I workout. Turns out there are some versions of some file types it won't play, but until I play it what the heck will work. Guess my Picard didn't match the right type last week. Going to try another TV now. Such is life on the dark web.

So... that happened. Geeze, not the way I thought that was going to go for any of the 3 female characters that episode. I'm a bit meh on that one.
I hated every second of it. My rating for Picard so far has been:

Ep1 - 8/10
Ep2 - 7/10
Ep3 - 5/10
Ep4 - 5/10
Ep5 - 2/10

I was so dissatisfied that I started looking elsewhere for Trek and finally got around to starting Season 2 of Discovery. I was quite unforgiving with my my opinion of Season 1 and while Season 2 was still far too action/explosions focused for me I enjoyed it thoroughly. Far better than Picard so far.

I just don't understand why they would take Star Trek, the one franchise known for its hopeful optimism and bright picture if the future and turn it into a violent grimdark dystopia. It's antithetical to the franchise's mission statement.

Such is Sci Fi since the Battlestar Galactica remake.
