vicodin and yoshi.

I'm in no way promoting substance abuse, but maybe you guys will find this interesting. I had all four wisdom teeth removed earlier today, and after taking my painkillers, I decided to sit with my bro and boyfriend to play some Tekken. Normally, they kick my ass swiftly and unforgivingly, but tonight I was 10-0, playing Yoshi, Armor King and Anna. It was either jaw pain rage, or the vicodin. What do you think? :p

Maybe you're wisdom teeth were dodgy and you had somehow accidentally grown 'crap at video games teeth' removing them has revealed your genuine greatness! (someone please stop me before I tie this piece of string from my tooth to the door!)

Anyway, for me it is green tea that makes me (slightly) better on Tekken. Maybe it's the caffeine content, maybe it just makes me happy!

What I definitely DONT do is play if I've been drinking alcohol. I don't mind the fact I lose so much because I know that I'm slowly getting better and 'there are no mistakes, just valuable learning opportunities' but I won't dishonour myself and Yoshimitsu by not even trying because I was too drunk to see what way I'm facing!

Alcohol+Lei Wulong= Drunken Fist Style= Auto win on all rounds, at least for me.

You're transforming into Dr. House. He's great at video games.

Jembru: I can't play anything but Bullshit successfully if I've been drinking. I'll try out that green tea though. ;)

Kanta-Kun: That makes perfect sense. LOL.. I'll pass along the tip to my brother who plays Lei a lot.

Sharp: Good call, I think that's the case! I'm gonna stop taking the vicodin now though because the pain is subsiding and I think it's just starting to make me sick.

No! Don't do it. It's a slippery slope. First you're like 'this tea tastes like sea water, ah what the heck, I'll drink it anyway', then you're like 'Oh, it's 3 am and I'm still awake and fully alert, hmmm, maybe I should have another cup of that delicious tea' (note how quickly the flavour grows on you). Next stage is the 'Now I've cut down on dairy products and drinking all those antioxidants I'm starting to feel healthy. You know what would go lovely with this green tea? Boiled rice wrapped in seaweed with a side of bean curd!' Before you know it you're walking into Starbucks and asking for green tea.

But yeah, it does seem to give me the alertness I need to pay attention when I play Tekken. Though I seem to have a '3 match' limit after which point my mind starts to wander and I forget what I'm meant to be doing. You know I've hit that wall when I keep trying to sit down most people refuse to play me until I've had another o-cha and re-charged my brain.
