While far from my favorite, I did like Flayn in the game.

I took Daisy to McDonalds right before the New Year, and also right before we drove to Forest City, NC. Chesnee is on the way there, so I decided that McDonald's would be a good place for breakfast.

I did enjoy Monica as a bad person in the game, but despite her beauty, there wasn't much to like. We first see her "rescued" after a year of being gone without a trace.

Petra was one of my least favorites among my team, but I did like her. She starts out as a noble in the Empire learning at the academy. Apparently she lived on an island vassal state that was recently conquered by the Empire.
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening was the first sequel to A Link to the Past, and in my opinion, one of the weaker of the "best Zeldas." Now it was actually started and developed partly with a team who worked on the game, AFTER they got done with their original work that day. Which is impressive but does explain some of my "problems" with the game on Game Boy. But I was looking forward to this new remake on Nintendo Switch.

Pete's Dragon was something I never saw a kid. It was a complete flop with critics and a dissapoint for Disney at the box office, and that was eleven years before I was even born. I actually saw the remake of the movie a few years ago and I wanted to give the original a try. For as bad as I heard it was, it made no sense why Disney would try to remake it and were quite good at doing so with the 2016 Pete's Dragon.
Ossian Sweet was a African-American doctor who moved into a white neighborhood in the 1920's in Detroit, Michigan. His racist neighbors formed an angry mob and attacked his house. Sweet along with other friends and family were in the house. They fired shots in self-defense but nevertheless were charged with murder. Luckily, the court system eventually made Sweet and those affected innocent without a doubt. Though unforutanley, Sweet was plagued with family and personal tragedies afterward and eventually took his own life.

The Zelda series is my favorite of all time, but Link's Awakening on Game Boy was one of the weaker titles in the series. I was somewhat excited to see the game announced as a real deal remake for Nintendo Switch. My brother played most of the game for me (mostly without my permission) and I never really finished it all those years ago. The remake is a nice time for a fresh start.
Right before Thanksgiving, my mom and my sister-in-law Tiffany got to see my niece Little K at some kind of school event. She's in the center in the red shirt. They sung about being thankful.

Despite being in just a handful of episodes, Milah left quite an impression on me. She is Rumplestiltskin's' first wife. Killian Jone's first true love, Baelfire's mother, and naturally the paternal grandmother of Henry Mills.
I can't resist a good Cinnabon dessert. I wanted to eat nearby the location (which is in the middle of the mall on the top floor) but some stupid idiots were using all the tables and all they were doing were sitting around and not eating. So I had to take it to the food court.

Pufferfish is a common meal in Japanese restaurants called Fugu. Though most of these meals are taken from pufferfish with very toxic flesh and skilled chefs have to be careful about selecting the right parts of the fish. There do exist pufferfish species that aren't toxic and there are cultures that enjoy that as a nice menu option.

Jimmy Hoffa was a leader of the Teamsters Union who mysteriously disappeared decades ago. His son (also bearing the legal name James Hoffa) is currently in his father's old role as President of the Teamsters labor union.

When Daisy and I started dating, she got me watching the Anne Shirley mini-series with Megan Follows which was made before I was born. While not as popular in America, the Anne Shirley/Green Gables books are pretty standard quo to Canada. Anne With an E is a Canadian TV series rebooting the story but Netflix has the rights to it outside of Canada.

Sylvain is a member of the Blue Lions and a heir to a noble house in the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus. Somehow I got him in my party, without me trying. He's good with a lance, but in the story he's a shameless flirt, always out to break some poor girl's heart.
