Two more work days until my long weekend. Today was fairly decent, so hopefully the rest of my work week will be too.

@Anti-Matter I get you. It's your money, and it makes organizational sense to have both games on one console. Personally I'll be sticking with the Switch version for the first game. Hopefully the second game makes the Switch too.

And I do see many (though not all) of your posts in this thread, and I do enjoy them. I just haven't had as much time for the site lately and haven't been as involved in the forums. I've scaled back commenting in articles a little too.

@Eel Oh my? When do the lions and tigers and bears all file through your front door?

You might wanna hide that Karen wig....

@Heavyarms55 Yep. My high school had...roughly 150 students around that point in time? And a breezeway connected the HS to the elementary and jr. high. Other than a parochial school in the same district, all the kids were filtered to one large, interconnected building. We didn't have a couple of big-name sports like football, so if you wanted to play those you had to drive yourself to a different nearby district that did have them or join a summer sports club. The school itself is the result of a merger between two small communities that occurred back in the 1950s. A few years after I left, they started co-oping in many sports and band with another school district due to declining numbers.

Everyone knew everyone, and cliques couldn't really form outside of the larger stereotypical ones lol.

I won't be running off with that pie. I'd rather not risk losing an arm.

@Tyranexx I honestly really like the idea of having all 3 school levels in one location in a single large complex. It means they can share support staff, it's easier to coordinate teaching materials, teachers can share one larger copy room instead of every building needing their own, etc etc.

@Heavyarms55 There was definitely a lot of sharing and coordination between the staff, particularly between the jr. high and high school. Some of the jr. high teachers fielded a couple of the high school classes in subjects they specialized in. I went down to one of them my senior year for botany and zoology. I loved her classroom, thanks to the menagerie of animals she had in there. On a rare free day, she'd let us get out some of the calmer animals as long as we kept them in the room. I can say I've had a domestic rat chill out on my shoulder. And the sixth grade garter snake she inherited after the teacher in charge of her retired was pretty chill, too.

@Tyranexx Rats are fairly cute when you are confident they aren't carrying any diseases.

And yeah, what you describe is the general idea. But I know building such complexes for schools is difficult just for the needed land for the campus.

@Tyranexx I'm honestly quite conflicted. On the one hand, it's entirely their fault for sending me notifications saying my purchases were being returned and refunded. On the other hand maybe I was a bit too hasty in asking them to speed up the refunding/replacement process?

I'm considering the idea of contacting them to ask if there's something I should do about the situation... But I'm not sure if it's worth the problem.

In either case... <throws the karen wig at Tyranexx> It's yours now!

@Heavyarms55 Both rats were named Thelma and Louise. Thelma was more active, but Louise was more laid back and would just chill lol. Besides the rats and the snake, there were also two domestic mice, a salamander, and a chinchilla.

@Eel Catches Karen wig Awesome! Now I just need the proper makeup, outfit, and handbag....

Man, even the second time through, the events of Xenoblade Chronicles 2; Chapter 7 and 8 really are incredible. Even though various things had been foreshadowed before that point in the game, when you finally start seeing the truth it's really mind blowing. And still this second time playing the game, it's very impactful. It will forever be some of my favorite moments in fiction.

@Tyranexx I never had much experience with animals growing up. I'm currently living in a house with two small dogs, and it was yet another adjustment getting used to that when my life got flipped upside down. I still think I'd prefer cats, but the dogs have grown on me a lot. How many animals did you guys have at the school? Do you have pets now?

So, @Eel, you got your AC game & it's being refunded ....? There's also a replacement on the way? Eh, it certainly is all their fault but you could return the replacement when it arrives, if it makes you feel better

Remember that bit about me buying new gifts with the refund money? Well I just received another notification saying THAT package is being returned+refunded.

I honestly don't know anymore.

I won't bother trying to return any refunded items I end up getting. However this time I'll simply wait things out and see what happens, instead of contacting them immediately.

LOL
I was playing Evoland 2 PS4 and have experienced with numerous of other games parody on it.

Let's say, before entering the Pyramid, i found a question with hilarious options (Triforce, 1 Up Mario, Excalibur).
Inside the cave, i played like Metroidvania when i have to reach the mountain top.
I met a girl named Clara Loft (Lara Croft) inside the cave.
And after i reached the mountain top, i rode a flying bike and played in Shoot them Up game style. 😂
After i succesfully landed on the top of Pyramid (crashed 😜), i have to battle with the Prophet (Akuma + M.Bison. That was cheating to have Akuma with Psycho Crusher) in Street Fighter game style.
And i beat him with Ryu's movements (Hadouken, Shoryuken, Tatsumaki Kyaku, Shinku Hadouken, exactly same commands as Street Fighter). 🤣

Oh, i also found Saint Seiya cameo (Sagittarius Gold Cloth) on Genova city (FF VII Jenova). 😛

The things i LOVE :
1. Dance Dance Revolution
2. Eurobeat songs
3. Japan
4. Six pack dudes
5. Cute Chibi looking
6. Boxing & Kickboxing
7. Girly games
8. Life simulation games
9. White & Blue colors
10. Anthro animals

And the flip-flops. Can't forget those!

So Eel's Shipping Saga continues?

@HobbitGamer Howdy stranger! Socks are great, but blankets cover more ground.

@Heavyarms55 I really like dogs and cats, but between the two I slightly prefer the latter. Most dogs are fine, but I do have a preference for medium and large-sized canines. They typically act like giant babies, whereas many small dogs I've come across act like they'll take your leg off if you so much as sneeze in their direction. Plus, unless they're bathed often, most dogs smell like...well, dog lol. Cats have their own pro and cons, but I can deal with most of their quirks easier. For one, I think they're less needy.

That classroom housed most of the animals I knew about, besides a couple of aquariums in the elementary grades. I didn't go to elementary school there, so it's very possible there were class pets I missed. Some unauthorized creatures made it in as well, usually the occasional bird or bat in the gym. Though a cat wandered in through an open door in spring of my senior year lol.

I grew up with a few cats and a dog around, but they were all outdoors. I'd love a pet now, but I don't want any inside animals. Outside is out of the question as I live close to a busy road and don't want to come home to a pancake pet. So either I need to cave into sharing some inside space or move. XD

@Tyranexx I actually find small dogs more likably because they are closer in size to cats. And honestly the two we have here act a lot like cats, but louder. I think the main reason why I don't like big dogs is because when I was a kid, my uncle's big black dog used my head as a chew toy. It wasn't even attacking so much as playing, but playing by chewing on me... It terrified little kid me and ever since then I've not liked big dogs very much. On the contrary, every cat I knew growing up was very friendly and when they played it never involved pinning me down and biting me...

@Heavyarms55 I don't dislike most small dogs and have met many friendly ones; I'm quite fond of a Schnauzer/Poodle mix a coworker owns. It's more the fact that I've encountered too many that exhibit Small Dog Syndrome. Not that I also haven't had foul encounters with larger dogs, but those are few and far between. Also, while all dogs bark, usually the larger ones don't seem so...yappy.

Most socialized cats I've encountered are friendly, but there are a select few in that department I don't care for as well. Top of the "Nope" list would be one of an aunt's cats; I don't know if something happened during cat puberty or what, but she was fine as a kitten and became a grouchy rip of a cat. Their other indoor cat is completely fine, a friendly, laid-back male. He gets a bit rough when playing though. Needless to say I ignore one and love on the other; I've tried giving her attention, but she hisses and/or trots off. Back in college, I took care of their indoor and outdoor pets on their property when they'd leave on trips. That cat was by far the least pleasant part. The outdoor Black Lab and German Shepard? Fine. Outdoor cat? Fine, he was a lovable older long-haired tabby. But that cat, the only indoor one at the time? Hoooo boy, she knew she had the run of the house while they were gone.

Sounds to me like that dog was trying to play (roughly), but it should have been trained that playing like that with people isn't okay. Pretty much a discipline thing. I completely understand how that could affect a young kid's future outlook on larger breeds.

@Tyranexx Yeah, our experiences clearly shaped our opinions on cats and dogs. And the more limited the experiences the more strongly the impact I think. Kind of a mini metaphor for life. lol
