TBA, I just use my 3DS for pokemon trading. I don't think the current library is that impressive yet.  Or at least nothing I want badly enough to spend 40 dollars.  I'm waiting for Luigi's Mansion 2 and Paper Mario 3DS.

Unless Des Moines shows up, I'm hoping I can make it when it reaches Minneapolis.

Poison has gotten better over the years.  The main reason it seemed useless in Gen 1 was because most of the grass pokemon at the time were part poison.

So I assume the forum's censor software doesn't recognize curse words when they're combined with things like "cluster"?  I apologize. I seriously thought it would censor that word for the users who have the option activated.
I think the "literal legend" theory still makes sense except for one thing, and that is the fact that one game will make direct reference to another as a set of events that had previously occurred. Other than that, it's not hard to picture two Hylian grandpas in rocking chairs trying to tell the story of the hero in green to some small children.

"He weren't called the Hero of Winds, ye ding-dong, he was the Hero of Time! And he wasn't a little boy, neither, he was a man."

"Who told ya that? And how did he ride a silly HORSE around, the land was covered in a ocean, it was a BOAT."

And then a third one comes in,

"You're both wrong you geezers, he flew around in the SKY on a BIRD."

And all any of them can agree on is that Link looted dungeons for magic artifacts and that he fought evil. And that he wore green.
I am suddenly visualizing this scene play out in a flash cartoon or something.

UPDATE: Last night, we got visit from a feline friend of ours that had been missing since this fall!  He first came to us about a year ago as a stray that got along well with the other outdoor cats, but didn't really want anything to do with people.  But over the months, he warmed up to us, and became one of the sweetest cats in the clan.  He's still sweet as ever, and seems to be loving the attention.  And it looks like he's been well fed during absence, which leads us to believe he's probably been doing some farm hopping.  And that's okay.  I'm just glad to know he's alive and well.  I think that's one of the greatest Christmas presents I've ever received.

Yeah, I just see the third branch in the timeline split an attempt to shoehorn the first four games into a sensible timeline out of a cluster[****] of prequels and sequels.  While it does accomplish that, I don't know if I can accept the possibility of Link being defeated. But it's possible to die in all of the games, so why does this Link get a whole timeline branch out of that what-if scenario? Because he's the 'Hero of Time'?  I guess I could also accept the LTTP branch as a scenario where if Link were to die as an infant with his mother at the foot of the Great Deku Tree.  Yes, it's morbid, but it would make the some sense, considering no hero is mentioned at the beginning of either version of LttP.  If he had died during his journey, wouldn't there be some mention in the legend of a boy that was overwhelmed despite his valiant efforts?  Now, If he had died before even starting his journey, there would be no hero to mention. 

The timeline also ignores one important detail established by FSA that it takes place not long after the first FS.

But I decided to stop working my brains over the timeline after finishing TP.  It's just not worth it.  I'd rather just enjoy the games.

I think the rules say I'm supposed to edit curse words. Sorry for the minor niggle. - The Chef

In terms of family, it was kind of rough. It was the first time we spent Christmas with only one side of the family.  Ever since my mother passed away, that side of the family got more and more distant. Since my dad's not very close to the surviving relatives that live hundreds of miles away, the last tie to my mom's side of the family was pretty much gone when my grandmother passed away this spring,.   And my dad is going through a divorce, so we didn't go to the step relative gathering.  It's just left us with complicated thoughts and emotions that I am not going to go into on this thread.  Basically, I didn't really ask for much for Christmas this year.  What mattered was that I got to spend Christmas with my closest relatives (my dad, sister, and her family, So overall, I wasn't disappointed.

My Christmas Hoard:
Pokemon cards
Mood ring w/ my name
Talkng Phineas and Ferb plush
Doofenshmirtz plush
frog socks
boot slippers
cat picture frame ornament
Snow leopard hat
cat towels
A couple neat breakables

None that I am aware of.   But if you were wondering which design he resembles the closest, my guess would be SSBM.

Is this song available for mp3 download anywhere for us Mac users?

EDIT: Never mind.  The WAV file should work.

Bright natural sunlight sometimes triggers a sneeze. It happens with my dad and sister, so it might be genetic.  I also sometimes sneeze if a nerve on my forehead gets pulled or pinched the wrong way; and that only happens if I pick off a scab from a zit in that area.
