    I was actually a little bummed about this last year! I've been looking forward to getting our apartment (which we got in August), because we live on the third floor with a balcony, and I thought for sure I'd be able to grow some veggies and things. As is typical with my luck though, we get...

    Weight Training

    Turbofire is a workout routine released by Beachbody (if you've ever heard of P90X or Insanity, it's the same people - I don't know if it's advertised or anything overseas...). Comes with numerous DVDs, each different, and a calendar telling you what workout to do each day (it also came with a...

    Weight Training

    I just started the TurboFire workout two weeks ago, if that counts for anything ;).

    Most Overrated Person of All Time

    Well, since this has been revived, I'd like to add the entire cast of Jersey Shore. I have not yet killed any brain cells watching this show, but these people are everywhere - and for what? Because they act like trash and get paid for it. The whole thing repulses me :P.

    What is the Perfect Entertainment for My Wedding Shower?

    I went to ritzy "tea luncheon" bridal shower about a year ago where they served fruit and cucumber sandwiches. It was at some sort of country club. The only real game they played was a bingo sort thing - each guest got a piece of paper with a bunch of squares (just like a bingo board...) and in...

    For Those Who Read the Zelda Manga by Akira Himekawa.

    I thought it was cute in the OoT manga when Zelda was in disguise in the market. I liked how she just wanted someone to play with so pretended to be a commoner ;).

    I Like Pie

    Coconut cream and Key Lime Cream all the way! :D

    Favorite Board Game

    My husband and I still play Monopoly every few months. We've played a few other games with friends, like Apples to Apples. That one is a lot of fun, especially if everyone has been indulging in certain drinks ;). We also have a Truth or Dare Jenga that we've only played once, and chess and...

    Are There Any Popular or Critically Acclaimed Movies That You Hate?

    I got one that hasn't been mentioned - Slumdog Millionaire. It won Best Picture the year it was out, so we went to see it. I was bored out of my skull the whole time (I think I ended up playing Tetris on my phone halfway through - and the theater was empty at that point), and couldn't understand...

    Anybody else Brave Enough to Get the 3DS the First Day It Came Out?

    None of the launch titles appealed to me, but I got it anyway. I am really impressed with it, and am glad I spent the money! Now I'm patiently waiting for the games I want...

    Why Doesn't Voldemort Have a Nose?! He's a Wizard

    Because he's not a metamorphmagus (I think that's the term....been way too long since I read the books), and by splitting his soul so many times he destroyed his own humanity, thus his appearance. His appearance changed to reflect the inside. That, and maybe he didn't want to smell the filthy...

    Pretty Remarkable Tornado Impact Footage

    That is pretty cool! Can't say I've seen footage like that before either! Very cool. Hope no one was injured as a result though.

    French Fries or Tater Tots?

    Tough call....I LOVE crispy french fries - can't get enough of them! But I also love onion flavored tator tots (which are, sadly, impossible to find anymore in my area). Very tough call...

    Pancakes or Waffles?

    Does anything beat a nice fresh blueberry waffle? Come on now, people, waffles have pancakes beat!

    Bath or Shower?

    We don't have a good sized bath tub :(. Otherwise I'd love to take a bubble bath all the time....

    Favorite WWE Wrestler

    Definitely not Cena ;). I <3 Shawn Michaels, Triple H, John Morrison, and Chris Jericho. There's a few others who stick out, but they're my main ones. Has anyone else been watching on of the Pay-Per-Views lately? Morrison is insane lately...

    How healthy is the Wii?

    Well, it depends entirely on how you use it, too. If you monitor your game time, then it shouldn't be an issue. And that can be said about all game consoles, not just the Wii. With all due respect, to generalize and say that everyone will get fat and lazy playing it is unfair ;). I do agree that...

    Chicken Noodle Soup - Why the Noodles Are Essential

    Mmmmm.....chicken broth. I'll go with the unpopular opinion and support chicken soup on this one. Noodles are okay but I love me some chicken broth....

    I was at pretty much an Ivy League school, working on a bachelors in Psychology or History (I still hadn't made up my mind which), when I dropped out and decided to go be a nurse. Nursing wasn't offered there or I might've stayed. I ended up going back to a community college to work on pre-reqs...

    What Game(s) Are You Playing at the Moment?

    I bought it pre-owned at Gamestop. It's not bad. I've never played any of the Harvest Moons before, and I have no idea what prompted me to pick it up. So far I'm just spending my time planting and harvesting things, I haven't really been able to get too far within the game story itself yet. It's...

    Read a Book!

    I just added this book to my wish list. It sounds really interesting. It amazes me how many people still attach such a stigma to video games, and assume that gamers have no lives (or any other of the numerous stereotypes that go with being a gamer). Most of the gamers I know are also some of the...

    Video Game Music

    I love video game soundtracks. Zelda is definitely at the top of my list for favorites. I loved the Monster Hunter Tri, though, too. That one was REALLY nice.

    What Game(s) Are You Playing at the Moment?

    I have a few: Metroid: Other M (extremely slow progress though...haven't even picked it up in a long time) Phantom Hourglass Harvest Moon: Sunshine Islands (don't laugh! It requires no thought when I pick up the DS right before bed...) Majora's Mask I'm sure there'll be more soon. There's a...

    If you wrote a book...........

    So your location refers also to your book? Interesting ;). Can't blame you. Although I'm not so concerned about anyone knowing what's in my head so much as getting it out coherent. I'm one of those lovely people who KNOWS what's going on in their head, but cannot verbalize it appropriately...

    Lyrics have a huge impact on me while I listen to music. I'm pretty good about memorizing them quickly, too, if the song somehow is meaningful to some aspect of my life. Every other part of the song is important, too - some songs have music that is just "meh," while other songs sound EPIC...

    If you wrote a book...........

    I'm more apt to write little vignettes. I LOVE to write, but I've never written anything really substantial. I have several lengthy things going, but not anywhere near done. Some sort of scene will come to me, and I'll write it. There's no definite or cohesive plot, and none of it is put...

    Werewolf Link

    I don't think it would bother me for another game, but it's definitely a played out idea these days. I also think I wouldn't care for it at all if the plot was dependent on that in a major way. Maybe as more of an extra thing in the game.

    Favorite Sitcoms?

    I watch Roseanne, the Golden Girls, the Nanny, and numerous cartoon sitcoms (if they count as sitcoms...), but as a whole I don't watch a lot of TV at all anymore...

    Would You Do It?

    I would want to know, I think, if it was something curable. Otherwise, no. Let me live in ignorance. Only if it's preventable or curable would I be willing to know.

    3DS Launch Titles: What Are You Getting?

    I'm definitely going to get OoT once it's out. I think a lot of the appeal for me is the virtual console for it. I have my 3DS preordered in full already (I had the money now, so I figured I may as well), and I'm still considering which games I plan on getting.
  31. monkeefun

    Which Will You Get?

    I went and preordered my 3DS today. I'm pretty excited about it, too. Between the virtual console, backward compatibility, the new games coming (and the ones I already have for my regular DS...), and my own loyalty to Nintendo it was definitely an easy decision. Truthfully, I really wouldn't be...

    Games You Love but Suck at

    I am NOTORIOUSLY bad at video games. I love games, love the storylines, love the music, love everything about most video games. I just cannot play them. I don't know if it's that my reaction time to things is off (I sometimes like to jump the gun a bit...), or that for whatever reason I start...

    My Reasons for Hating the Zelda Cartoon

    I can honestly say I enjoy the cartoons. I find them badly written, the characters can be a little hard to take at times, but I like them. For me it's more the feeling of nostalgia when I watch them. I remember watching them when I was little with my older brother when they originally aired. I...

    What's Your Style?

    Even in high school I didn't really care ;). I guess I did make more effort then, but I was super body conscious; I usually ended up wearing t-shirts and jeans every day. Funny, too, because I was in pretty decent shape then, especially senior year. Now I spend my days at home in my pajamas, I...

    Why Do You Play Video Games?

    Scary thing is, at least for me, this hasn't changed as I've gotten older ;). I still feel like most around me are ignorant, as you say. Out of touch and just seem to have different priorities - alot of them seem to have priorities that are, well, shallow and simple. I hate saying that and...

    What Ancient Time Do You Wish You Were in Right Now?

    I don't think I'd be able to live back in ANY ancient times. I'm too comfy with my electricity, heat, and indoor plumbing :P. However, I'd LOVE to go back and visit Rome, Egypt, Japan, Ireland - pretty much everything that's already been said. I'd love to see how the cultures truly were, and to...

    No school!!!!!

    The storm hit and was a major disappointment for us :P. Supposed to hit overnight, and I think we ended up with a measly four inches. That's everyday stuff. And yet every school in the area, and every business if they could get away with it, closed. I did think it was funny, though - one of...

    No school!!!!!

    I'm 24, live in NY, and am hoping for a snow day from nursing school for tomorrow. I'd love a day to sleep in!

    Ghostbusters 3

    That's my issue ;). I'm just thinking that if it's made, it won't equal up to the quality of the first two. Everyone has their image of the Ghostbusters, and they're obviously not the same anymore. I'm sure they're still every bit as FUNNY, but they've aged a lot. A lot of people have a lot of...

    The PG rating has pretty much made it awful for the adults who watch it. My husband and I try to watch it regularly, but it's just gotten so dull for us. It was much better during the attitude era. As for TNA, we really haven't seen much of them. We generally stick to WWE, but I wouldn't be...

    Wheel of Time

    I started reading the first book to this series a while ago, and it really is fantastic. My life has been completely dominated with nursing school so I haven't read any in months, but I'd definitely rank it up there (from what I've read thus far) with LOTR. Maybe not quite as high, but...

    Ghostbusters 3

    Just kind of curious. Ghostbusters 3 is rumored to begin production sometime this year, but there's a lot of debate surrounding it. For one thing, whether or not they're actually going to make it is still up in the air (supposedly depends on if Bill Murray agrees to it - and he's the only...

    April 2011 Release Date?!?!

    I think it's interesting that many people don't even want to pre-order it till an official date is announced. I put my money down on it already. I figure whether it comes out in April, November, or whenever, I'll be able to go get my copy with no problems that why. I'm not sure what the money...

    What is Your Job?

    I'm 24 and I still can't decide what I want to be when I'm a grown up. I had NO clue at 16. Right now I'm in school full time to become an LPN which is quite possibly one of the hardest things I've ever done. 11 month long concentrated course = pain every night. Aside from THAT, I'm working part...

    Do You Think the Legend of Neil Will Continue on to AoL?

    I do not want to see this series end. I love LoN, and I've gotten quite a few people into it besides! I doubt they'll continue, but I'm hoping at some point it'll be on DVD or something anyway. I'd buy it in a heartbeat!

    Concerts and Live Shows

    I've seen Motley Crue and Def Leppard, both of whom were amazing. I love hair metal. When I was 14 I TECHNICALLY saw the Monkees, too (only three of them) but they were so far away I couldn't see anything. :(

    What Is Your Favorite Flavor of Ice Cream?

    Mr. Bean

    Rowan Atkinson cracks me up. I loved the two Mr. Bean movies. I haven't been able to catch the show, but if they're anything like the movies they must be phenomenal.

    Team Edward, Team Jacob, or Team Potter?! O.o

    I have to go with all three, depending on my mood. My fiance and his best friend would disagree with all of you and say Team Emmett, though, because they admire anyone who'll take on a bear. *eye roll*

    What do you want to be when you grow older?

    The older I get, the harder it is to decide what I want to do when I grow up. Feels like whatever I do, I'm just biding my time till I come up with something better. I'm going to nursing school starting next month, and I've been considering being a nurse since high school (8 years ago). Before...
