Really I just had to say that. Because why should I suffer alone. Who posts a picture of their ass on the social media they use for work?! Unless they're an ass model or something.
I overextended myself a lot during moving because I felt so bad about just sitting on my butt, so my back has been really bad for a few days. And now we are surrounded by boxes and I want them unpacked but I know I shouldn't do anything, and it's very frustrating. Also my desktop isn't working -- I guess something got dislodged during the move. But I'm just glad the moving part is over.
Do not let your doctor prescribe you Zohydro. Don't take it. Period.
Zohydro is an opiate that was approved by the FDA against the recommendation of its own panel. It is far stronger than Percocet (which I also recommend against taking). It is so strong, merely two pills are enough to cause a deadly overdose in adults. Giving a drug this strong to people who are already miserable because of pain is extremely questionable solely because of the suicide risk. But the risk -- no, not risk. The near certainty of addiction makes it criminally irresponsible for any doctor to prescribe this thing.

As in the Etrian Odyssey Untold class, not the "there can be only one" kind. So, this is the character I start with in story mode, and I'm looking at his (it appears to be a "he") skills and, uh, going by other Etrian Odyssey games... they suck. Expend own HP/expend party's HP/transfer binds to allies -- are you kidding me? I usually don't like HP-spending skills in any rpgs, but in Etrian Odyssey, they are death. And binds are things I go out of my way to inflict on enemies in Etrian Odyssey games because they are so powerful.
Well, this is an Etrian Odyssey game, and they do tend to change up quite a bit with every iteration. I guess I was expecting it to be more like original Etrian Odyssey 1, but it's good that the gameplay seems to differ so much in the remake, since that will make it a whole new game. But I'm still staring at this guy wondering where the heck to put his skill points, imagining him draining my Medic's HP to do damage, which hell no.
ETA: Okay, I take it back, Highlanders kick ass. Turning tide, battle instinct, bloodlust (which I don't have yet but look forward to)... actually, that brings me to something. The skills for all classes have been changed, which is good. However, I'm level 7 and have not come anywhere near a party wipe once. No one has even died. I'm playing on Expert, the highest level and the one that's supposed to be like the rest of the series. Etrian Odyssey 4 was also much more gentle than the previous games, particularly at the beginning. :(. I don't want all RPGs to be extremely difficult by any means, but that was Etrian Odyssey's claim to fame. EO:Untold is a little tougher than most RPGs, but most RPGs are cakewalks. Hrm. I hope I'll be taking this back around level 15.

1) Why would you cover filet mignon, an extremely expensive and delicious cut of meat, in a strong sauce? Strong sauces are for things that don't taste great otherwise. If you can't taste the filet mignon, why get filet mignon in the first place?
2) What's with all the rich food? I have nothing against rich food, but it does make physical activity more difficult, and that's the last thing I would think one would want on Valentine's Day.
3) Why is there so much salmon? If it were oysters, I'd understand, but salmon? Is there a myth about salmon's aphrodisiac qualities that I haven't heard? Am I just not getting it because I hate salmon?
4) Turducken? Seriously?
STOP SAYING THIS MEANS JKR SAID HERMIONE SHOULD HAVE ENDED UP WITH H
Oh and btw needing relationship counseling does not mean you should not be with someone, Ms. Rowling. If you actually said that, I am sorely disappointed in you. I like you as a person better than I like your books, but that quote is really very bad.
This is around the fourth time I've tried to start this post. That's because this chapter is... wtf. What the ever loving fuck. It's actually not particularly offensive from a moral standpoint this time, unless you consider lazy writing for which people are expected to pay money to be morally bad, which I do. You know how in first drafts, lots of people write unrelated scenes with plans to link them up in the second draft? This is what LKH did here, but she never linked them up. Also, I think it's the worst chunk of writing yet, purely from a style standpoint. It's just plain bad.

Time for sex for 16 pages. I'm not sure how to spork this. If you know anything about LKH, you already know what happens. She cannot name body parts; she does not seem to know the clitoris exists; she's phallus-obsessed; she has characters do things that aren't possible; she writes like someone who has never had sex, seen sex, or read about sex; and she writes like someone who does not inhabit a human body.
