@ThanosReXXX Well you've got a good 17 years on me! But I'm still older than I've ever been (hooray for truisms!). And thanks for the warm welcome! I appreciate the reassurances that everyone here is cool and on the level. I'll try to keep that in mind.

It's cool that you're also into mindfulness! Got any favorite authors or speakers? Thich Nhat Hanh and Eckhart Tolle really speak to me, personally.

@anti-matter I tried the water trick, and didn't work. Normally it does though. thankfully they just went away 😊. Sorry for the late reply.

@Morpheel yea the chimichangas are the fried burritos but typically smaller. Never had a tamale in a torta but I usually get tortas when I go to Mexican restaurants. Chorizo or al pastor. Some times milanesa. Lately I've been fine with some tacos with only cilantro and onion ( little lime too).

In Chicago we have of course, hot dog stands that get pretty creative. For instance, a tamale boat. A bowl of chili with all the fixins and tamales in the bowl. Or a super tamale which is a tamale in a hot dog bun with traditional hot dog toppings on it.

Great now im hungry.

So... let's see... what did I miss? Scary hiccup adventures, new Switch owners, Mexican food, people butchering the spelling of chimichangas, and lessons in a language that none of us will ever need to speak.

Alrighty then, we're up to speed again...

@NEStalgia My day looks too familiar to you in what way? Do you often sleep away your own free days as well? Or do you often get called out of bed by numbskulls?

And the thing was, that I was SO looking forward to my extra long weekend, and now, it's basically already ruined, because the beginning of it was f-ed up, basically turning it into just another regular weekend...

@BougieBeetle I've read Eckhart Tolle's books, and had The Power of Now and it's companion book for practical use, and now that's just more or less integrated into my daily life and work.

But in this specific case, I actually just meant mindfulness as in being aware of other people on here and not trying to go on some wild tangent to try and extrapolate strange meanings out of their comments, which were never intended as such, which is what creates most of these useless discussions in the first place.

But yeah, Nintendo Life has a pretty decent community, and most, if not all of the good guys and gals hang around here in the Chit-Chat thread, so even if comments sections or other threads get too heated for you, there's always a virtual comfy sofa over here to relax in...

And now for something completely different:
How the hell do you change the font size of your comment on here?
I've tried dozens of options, and none work, so it's REALLY starting to annoy me at this point.

On a side note:
Nintendo Life should just have options to manipulate/edit text attached to the window that you type your comment in, like most websites I know do. I do seem to recall them having a smiley toolbar in there in the past, but they removed it for whatever reason.

Something completely different and scary: a tornado missed my town by only 15 miles last night!

Be yourself, no matter who you are!
For me, that's being madly in love with fictional characters. Plz don't judge.

@Morpheel lol. What's more, there are still heavy storms when I'm typing this up, and it's been about 12 hours since then.

@Morpheel Besides it not really helping me out, that sounds like a real non-reason. We're not changing any aesthetics of the site, only of our own comments. Except having to do it all manually, isn't just cumbersome, it's also highly archaic. Every site that I know and use, has a text editing toolbar. It's a minimal requirement.

And who says it has to be clunky? You can make it as modern and streamlined as you like.

That’s terrifying. I’ve never seen any up close, and really hope I never do.
Take care out there!

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

I actually saw one when I was little, we were visiting one my uncles, one that lives in Texas. All I really remember is that it got very dark outside.

It must've been a small one because it didn't really do much damage, it was over quickly. (From that I remember)

We had a tornado right outside the house when I was very young, but I didn't realize it until years later. My parents just told me we were having a Cheez-It party under the basement stairs and I didn't question it.

I've never seen a tornado in person, but I've seen the resulting damage many times. I was once on my way home from work several years ago and was even sent home early due to the forecast. I didn't see anything, but I remember a feeling of dread as the sky turned a sickly yellow-orange color right before I made a turn. The twister that spawned right after I left was weak (EF0) and didn't cause any injuries, but there was some minor property damage.

Due to our weather patterns, much of the US, particularly the Midwest and Plains states, is a hotbed for tornado activity.

@Anti-Matter that ones just in game animation. It’s not real. No wonder you hate 18 rated games and shooters. You must think it’s real and follow practice 😉

@Morpheel Yeah, I know. In the mean time, I was still kinda hoping that any of you brilliant people might be able to help me out...
