- Waiting for the forum to be "revived" again since Christmas. Where is everybody?!

- Thinking about basing my eventual Pokemon Diamond team around King's Quest characters! (Or... maybe just Sierra characters? Since I'm play Gen IV not V) But... I'm choosing Piplup for this playthrough, so which character would suit a penguin? I know immediately what Graham would be: Gallade.

- Is wondering whether anyone even reads my stories on this forum anymore. I'm getting lonely! :(

-mostly playing The Sims Medieval
-and spamming people for votes on that Facebook contest (http://bit.ly/TAeUZY :D)
-but mostly playing the Sims Medieval

I made King Graham and called my kingdom Daventry and since I don't get to create his whole family in this game, I have decided to play it out as the couple of years between KQ1 and KQ2.

Mixed a little bit with The Princess Bride. Because the spy is Inigo Montoya. And I'm sure the healer when I make him will end up being Miracle Max. :P

- Watching/Listening to some episodes of Atop The Fourth Wall, specifically the Halloween episodes.

- Playing Pokemon Pearl and Platinum simultaneously in The Underground to eventually catch Spiritomb.

- Having just ordered Pokemon Diamond, still considering my Sierra themed team.

I have:

Piplup: ??? (Adam from Ecoquest? Johnny Westland from Codename: ICEMAN? Torin from Torin's Passage?)

Shinx: Gabriel (Since the symbolic animal of the Ritters/Knights is a lion)

Budew: Laura Bow (referencing the second game where she wears a fancy dress)

Either Houndour or Eevee: The Hero (Quest for Glory, referencing the different classes. For Houndour, it could reference all three classes with it being Dark (Thief) and Fire (Magic User's Flame Dart) and having good Attack/Special Attack (Fighter AND Paladin with their powers linked to their mana). For Eevee, it could also represent one of the classes, Flareon and Jolteon (Magic User's Flame Dart or Lightning Ball), Umbreon (Thief), Glaceon (Magic User's Frostbite), Leafeon or Espeon (Fighter or Paladin)

Either Abra or Beldum: Doctor Brain (He IS smart!)

Either Aron, Farfetch'd (with good Nature), Lickitung, or Cranidos: Duke Garland (Zeliard's protagonist), Roger Wilco (Space Quest, since he's seen as a terrible janitor), Larry Laffer (Hey, you can use your tongue for lots of things to have fun, right?), or Roger again (since he's usually portrayed as not very smart)

-Aching all over. :(
-Snuggling up to boyfriend.
-Being le tired and also le drugged and cough syrup is weird and tastes bad and makes everything strange. :P
-Reading "Women and Femicide, How often do they provoke?", which is probably a really bad idea considering that it's going to make me lose faith in humanity. :P
-Chatting.

- Out of the 41 Feebas I caught today in Pokemon Emerald, only FOUR of them have good Natures: two of them are Rash, one is Quiet and one is Modest.

Why is this important? Because it ties into whether or not they can evolve or not. In order to evolve into Milotic, a feebas has to have a high or maxed out Beauty stat, which is done by feeding them Pokeblocks (Gen. III) or Poffins (Gen. IV) that have a Dry flavour. However if you have a Feebas that has, say, an Adamant Nature it will not like Dry flavours and thusly it's Beauty stat will not be raised when it eats it, therefore preventing evolution and screwing you out of having it for your Pokedex unless you trade for one.

Well, time to release all those other Feebas I caught. Swim free, little fishies, swim free!

I say sedentate. :P Sedentation is good. :P I've been sedentary all day long. :P

-The cocktail of depo shots, arm implants and hormone pills has finally and most definitely worn off. XD So many regrets. XD
-Having no idea of how I'm ever going to be able to sleep.
-Having no idea how I'm going to survive the next few days with diminished pain-relieving supplies. :( I'm out of heating pads and almost out of painkillers and getting more here is going to be difficult and I can't get up to do anything for myself.
-Wanting a cat.

-Feeling hungry.
-Somehow lacking the motivation to move and welcome with it all the horrors ever.
-Making elaborate plans involving dumbwaiters and evolved cats with opposable thumbs that can bring food.
