Because I have a darling TARDIS model, makes the noise & everything, way better than the money bank version, and I have many figures, toys, plastic things, I thought I’d have a play. In honor of the beginning of season 5 of Doctor Who, with Matt Smith as the new Doctor(THE DOCTOR, thats his name, NOT ‘Dr Who’ really pisses me off when even folks in the media can’t get it right *sigh*…) and Karen Gillan as the new companion AND most importantly to me, Steven Moffat as the new head writer!! :WOOOOP:. Lost one Scot, gained 2 others, not all bad, but I wish the Doc was Scottish lol. One day… And if you don’t know what Doctor Who is, FOR SHAME! And proceed here forthwith.

Maybe not interesting for you, but they are for me lol. Maybe more nostalgic than interesting though… either way, was hunting through my room for a blue pencil case thats filled with my phone charms & danglies, cos my dad moved it from where I always left it. Took bloody ages, but *finally* found it in a box under my bed, right at the back very helpfully, long as my arms are, ain’t easy to scrabble round for heavy-ass boxes lol.
In the process I of searching, I also found some of the many Pokemon models I made out of Fimo when I was younger, and some of my own creations, but in keeping with the Pokemon theme of late, I’ll just show them, and some other stuff from anime franchises from my childhood lol.
Got the game yesterday. Around this time, didn’t get to start playing till bout 1pm-ish… But I’ve racked up over 10 hours playtime already. In less than 24 hours. I should know better…..but its Pokemon… and I am so effing excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!
May post pictures of the box & wotnot and the giant Pokewalker manual(its adorable!!!!!!!) but odds are I won’t stop playing Pokemon for at least a week.
I may post updates on my team, levels, whereabouts in Johto/Kanto I am, but other than that, I’m not sure what I can promise right now… as it took alot of willpower to put it down this morning to have breakfast and get dressed lol. No wonder I only got 5 hours sleep….lol
As I’m here atm, might aswell post which starter I picked, Chikorita ofc, only picked Totodile for Crystal cos I’d picked Chikorita for Silver before haha. But she’s too cute to pass up. And YAY that she was female 1st time, no restarting to get a different gender lol. Ofc now I don’t have the heart to evolve her… she’s level 21 already and I just don’t wanna… if you can have a level 100 Pikachu, why not a Chikorita lol? Obv not as strong… but still… And I know which I’m picking out of Espeon & Umbreon. I seem to be reverting to my original choices from Silver, as Espeon is my pick. Good really cos I know two people going with Umbreon. BUT I am trying to go with a different team. Instead of the usual Pidgey, I went with Spearow, whether or not Terra will stick will remain to be determined, but she’s strong so far . Got my Gastly too. Right, back to playing now DD
Oh, before I go quickly, how freakin’ adorable are THESE?!!??
Living without internet I could have easily tolerated for a week, but being without my laptop for the week as well… painful…. I could have been marathoning various TV series I needed to catch up on…. but no… because hospitals have sucky security, and no real lockers or anything for patients, I had to live for 9/10 days without my Baby… I survived on magazines and NDS mainly(so wished I had a PSP lol, cudda watched vids then at least). And read the end of Breaking Dawn finally on my last day on lockdown haha. Disappointed by the end a bit lol. Too happy. Wanted some proper bloodshed & main character death… too much to ask? Twas meant to be a vamp novel after all… Anyways, the only upside to this was it whittled away 1 more week of waiting for Pokemon Soul Silver to be released in the UK.
Officially its just one day away from release… 1 day….. I can’t feckin’ wait…. I really can’t…. Silver was probably my favourite of the series… possibly Yellow… but cos Silver had Johto AND Kanto it just made it so much more awesome… and the Pokewalker… omg the Pokewalker…. one of the cutest, sweetest most adorable bits of tech I’ve ever laid eyes on….. I can’t wait… I’m just so bloody excited for it… spose kids from our generation (were around the age of 10 when the games were released) will always, or should always, be excited about the release of new Pokemon games. How can you not be really? I mean really? They’re epic. And undeniably brilliant. To be able to basically repeat the same thing over and over and still rock like hell is immense. You can’t deny it!!!!
You can’t not sing along. You just can’t. And if you don’t, to at least the 1st one, YOU HAVE NO SOUL!! Battle Frontier is when the opening themes go really down hill. But all before are very singalongable hehe. Even the ‘Pokemon Chronicles’ op theme lol. Much prefer the english themes I gotta say, surprising really, usually dubbed themes suck ass, but I spose Pokemon does have the edge of nostalgia other stuff doesn’t have hehe.
(Audio only, no title sequences, but it has all the openings, even the brand new one I’ve seen nothing of lol.)
Very unexpectedly, the Saturday before last, I left my room about 9:30am, and didn’t go back till the Monday of the next week at 4pm-ish… 13th to the 22nd… I won’t bore with the complete gory details, but I ended up visiting the urgent care clinic to see why my stomach was hurting so bad the whole night before, they thought it was appendicitis, sent me to A&E, who also thought it was appendicitis, who then sent me to the Leicester General hospital, who finally decided it was just a Crohns flair up after an x-ray & CT scan lol. I spent a fairly-pleasant 4 days with some nice people I got to know, until being turfed to a different ward full of gomers on the wednesday, was meant to be a ward for the kinda thing I got (Crohns) but it was filled with barely compus-mentus extremely elderly, which was unbelievably depressing. No one to talk to, no internet, not even a phone decent enough to tweet & see replies on… It made me feel worse. Not that hospitals seem like a place you get better in… just makes you feel worse… specially on a place like ward 1…. *shudder* possibly the most depressing experience of my life, and a pointed to just how naff Crohns can really be. Has been pretty damn tolerable before now after diagnosis. I don’t plan to go back to hospital any time soon if I can bloody well help it…
Met a few other people with crohns though, we all seem to be fussy eaters… whether or not its a cause or a symptom we don’t know, but none of us like onions, tomatoes, mushrooms and various other icky veggies and stuff. Onions and tomatoes are meant to be irritants for us anyways hehe.
Just 1 more day…. 1 more day… god I love Pokemon… I do… everytime a new game, or even just one of the remakes is released, it reminds me how much I love it lol. And how much I wanna rewatch some of the TV series and movies. And then all the rest of the series from when I was younger…. Digimon, Medabots, Beyblade, Moomins etc etc etc… all the main faddy ones with toys/games attached to the series though, couldn’t get enough lol. Yugioh I liked, but not nearly as much as the monster/robot related ones hehe. Damn Beyblade was awesome… spinning tops…. so simple… but so brilliant… battling spinning tops lol. And Medabots, by god I loved the online-gamey site thing, never got to play one of the games or read the original manga though… yet…*sob*… Digimon, well you should know how I feel about Digimon lol hehe.
After seeing Phossil’s post, and then Super rat’s post, and then Stripey’s post, I decided to post my own, not just to see what my taste says about me, but to kill some time while Fringe downloads lol.
In no particular order, because choosing just 5 was hard enough, to put them in order too would be HELL.
- Lovely Complex
- Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu
Short version: These 5 were picked from a list of 10, was hard. They say I like mostly mushy girly anime(C,LC,NH) with some fanservice and comedy thrown in, and then some nostalgic(P) and life-influencing anime(G,LC). (The others on my list of possibles were Kannagi, Whisper of the Heart, Rideback, The Cat Returns, Kanon. Again with the girly lol.)
This was fun, might do top 5 actors, tv series, movies etc etc aswell. Picking favourites is fun, hard, but fun. And my taste/judgement runs from good, to bloody awful lol. One instance of bloody awful is that I’ve started watch Dawson’s Creek for one actor in it lol. Two if you account for Ackles season 6 appearance. But I’ve started from 1.
Long version: (And slightly different interpretation of ‘what my 5 anime says’ lol) (more…)
Now when I say this, I really mean it. Though I love Pokemon the most, the Digimon(short for Digital Monster, if you didn’t know) franchise isn’t all bad. Sure the names of the Digimon themselves are ropey(cherrymon, garbagemon….you get the jist), and it did get released unfortunately after Pokemon, which was suspicious, but there are many-many plus points about it. The games for instance, and its tamagotchi-roots.
