Re: SF Bay Area?

Do we have an idea of exactly where we're meeting? Zachary's was mentioned earlier, but ye olde Wikipedia said there were three locations in the Bay Area, and I'm not sure which one we'd go to. Also, if I'm able to go (I give it about 50/50 right now), Sunday morning is the only one of the two times...

I also thought it was okay. I had trouble with it because I really didn't like Piggy very much at all, and I have a very hard time believing that kids would go that savage (killing is fun!).

That and that boar head freaks me out.

I would really like it if we could get a date hammered out though; my schedule's pretty packed and I'm worried I won't be able to switch stuff around so I can go.

For practicality's sake, I'd probably move to Canada. If I stayed near the coast, I could not freeze (I'm bad with cold), and it seems to be a really nice country, and nearly as screwed up as the US can be. The UK would be a second choice, as I speak English and like the culture there, and I like th...

Assuming I can get permission from my parents, the 23rd and 30th probably work better for me, and I could swing the Saturday dates if they were more in the afternoon/evening and I could hitch a ride home back to Davis (I'm not sure how late the trains run). This weekend would probably work better, t...

No. Played VII first, liked it. Picked up X much later, and spent 75 - 76 hours on it. I still haven't finished VII, although I chip away at it occasionally.

X's characters really grabbed me, and I love the world of Spira.

As far as favorites: Three way tie between River, Kaylee, and Mal. River was just awesome and her insanity made her that much more intriguing. Kaylee was super-cute and I loved how she always tried to cheer everyone up, and her dress in Shindig sealed the deal (so much pink!). And Mal is just wonder...

I demand to be bound and gagged at the hospital, should I ever become pregnant, I think there's a website for that. If there wasn't, there is now. I've always like the name Kaylee for a girl. Or Xiera (Zee-air-ah). I don't know what I would name a boy. Not having kids for a long time, though.
