~ Actually really disappointed in the PC port of Final Fantasy V. It claims to run at 60 fps but actually runs more at under 30, making everything feel really laggy. I can't see any text on the freaking menus, nor can I see character images in the main menu. It's not unplayable... provided you don't mind slow-moving battles and dialogue and have a couple of print-outs telling you where everything is on the menu. Which is a little bit of a deal breaker for me right now. I spent $15 on this; I ought to be able to play it without guessing at which menu option I'm pressing.

Apparently the iOS game this was ported from had similar issues, so it looks like Square Enix couldn't be arsed to actually fix anything before they decided to sell it for a new platform. So I'm really disappointed right now. There are so many great achievements on Steam, like maxing out all jobs on every character, and that's perfect for a level-grinder like myself, but I don't feel much appeal in spending that much time on a buggy game that had plenty of time and development money to not be so buggy.

~ Nissin coconut sable cookies are so delicious! I forgot that I had a package from my last Skoshbox, and once I remembered I couldn't just leave them in there. Now they're in their rightful place: my stomach!

~ I boiled up the last of the eggs, which were reaching the end of their usefulness, so now I have half a dozen hard boiled eggs to snack on. And the Farmer's Market is on Saturday, so I don't have to wait long before I can get more. (A local farm sells their free-run eggs there at 2 and a half dozen for only $7.50. They sell free-run chickens, too, but I don't buy them as often as I'd like because money's a bit tight at the moment and larger grocery stores will often have great deals on chicken meat anyway.)

~ And I just slept for 11 hours, so this entry is totally getting posted later than normal. Dislike!
