I complain about Mississippi summer's like your friends complain about your smelly socks. It's a kind of wink/nudge love-you-anyway-bro kind of thing. XD Not that I wouldn't mind less humidity...I could skip showering if I slathered myself in soap and stood outside for twenty minutes. -_-It's really not fun. Can confirm.
So if you could pick any part of the US to live based solely on weather (let's ignore issues like jobs, politics, proximity to family, etc and just assume everything works out in your favor), where would you pick? I know you often complain about Mississippi summers (And if they're anything like Texas summers, I completely understand), so I thought I'd pick your brain.
The Smoky Mountains. ^_^ I have not been to many places in the US, but I have seen the ocean and the plains, and a little of the desert. And I have yet to find a place as beautiful as the smokies chaining through TN. I have not visited since the fires, but it's almost a dream world. Thick, endless forests, countless tiny rivers and streams, mountains towering to the sky and rock as old as time itself. There's something magical about it. Even Gatlinberg, despite being clearly a tourist city, actually has a living river running through the middle of it and vaguely Germanic architecture to a lot of its buildings, so it doesn't feel like someplace in the middle of the south (even though it's right next to such towns as Pigeon Forge and Sevierville. ).Oy caramba! That amount of snow in the south is crippling to the whole society.
Favourite place to vacation in the U.S. aside from your house?
I like rain more than sun, truly. And those don't sound like bad temps. I like my winters a bit cooler, but that's probably because it's going to be in the 60's tomorrow. -_-The Pacific Northwest is kinda like what you described: It's been in the mid-30's to upper 40's this winter, but snow is a very rare phenomena that causes everything to shut down. The only downside, of course, is that it rains all Spring/Fall/Winter long. If you consider that a downside, I mostly really like the rain. XD
When you just can't get into a game, like, at all? You hear great things about it, but nothing is sucking you in. It's just not fun.
Rivers. Shallow ones. Of a high elevation, not directly connected to the sea (or at least not close to the estuary). I'm more than a little afraid of water (and its denizens), so I'm more comfortable in clear and shallow water than the black, murky abyss of most lakes. You know what those depths conceal? No. Because no one does. :O That's potentially hundreds of feet of watery blackness to conceal all manner of terrifying creatures. There are lakes in the northern regions that have freaking eels in them. To say nothing of Lampreys.Well, obviously it was a successful trip if you learned to break dance!
Which are more fun, rivers or lakes?
Aside from reviewers pooping themselves over its sheer glory, I've heard/feel like to the normal individual, BoTW is hit or miss. Ninty just went completely off the Zelda rails with it. I'm kind of afraid to play it, honestly. XD Since I'm not getting a Switch for awhile, I'm hoping by letting the Zelda hype die down I'll be able to enjoy it when I finally get my hands on it.Breath of the Wild has been that for me. It just does not click with me. I keep trying to see why people think this is a 10/10 game, but it's just..not clicking? Like, the game just feels so empty to me. There's no real sense of purpose to the world as far as I can see. Maybe that works for some people, but even if I liked the gameplay, the performance alone makes it not a 10/10 for me. The game has some serious performance drops when the weather acts up, or there's too much on screen. In terms of solid Switch versions of Nintendo franchises, Mario Odyssey is lightyears better than Breath of the Wild in my opinion. Mario is tightly refined, super stable, and overall has the Nintendo polish I've come to expect. Breath of the Wild feels more like a normal AAA game in terms of just-ok polish and the HORRIBLE voice acting, and frankly that's not what I've come to expect from Nintendo. I'm probably going to sell it because the game has just left me that disappointed.
Here's a song for you!
Sure. ^_^ I enjoy a good hike, and am a fan of lava. It actually sounds like great fun, even if the lava is seen only from a distance. There's always obsidian.Interesting answer! I am content with it.
Would you ever hike up a volcano?
Sadly no. -_- Due to a series of unfortunate events (and several birthdays) I am unsurprisingly singing my old 'lacking the fundage' song.I can definitely see the hit/miss thing, and I wish I had known more about it before getting into it.
So Monster Hunter World comes out today. You in?
I'll pass, most days. Cake is 2005869845% better. Unless the pie is made with a graham cracker crust, and is more akin to a pudding.Pie?
I don't know, actually. I've only ever had the frozen variants of each, not freshly made ones. I like them all...I'd kinda be tempted to say ice cream, just because if you get a really nice ice cream...it's the best thing you can ever eat. <3Frozen custard or gelato or ice cream?
Salt that wound, Deep. Salt that wound.Bummer, it's a ton of fun. XD
