First They Ignore You, Then...

First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win.

It's been a while now.

I Think Everybody Should Get Rich And Famous...

I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it's not the answer.

I'm on it Jim.

It's Been A Whale

Haven't forgotten about that Fire Week! I've been down with a cold so not high on sleep. I'd like to record but I still sound like *bleep* - I know you're impatient - don't take it out on me.

I've been compound grinding on, look out through the blinds at three! Short sleeping sessions don't bring out to the shout in me. But it's alright, I won't take another route and flee. I'll be a proud emcee. You can look down and see.

It's been a while, but I've polishing up my rhymes on leave. So now when I open my mouth out comes the sound with ease. Or maybe not. Maybe I forgot/no time was free. But I'll catch up, I'll get a round, then go ground my beef.

Live without regret. Live without woes or malice. Have no foes, just balance. Stop counting crows and ballots. When life's a mess; it all just seems a hopeless haggis. Just take a breath, look around - get in your focus status.

I've been around. I've been coasting slow on hopeless habits, but I cope with madness, and find a flow that's savage. And with time a peace. If just a piece I'll manage. It's time to grease my elbows, and speak some Spanish! So thin the veil, I think I'll sail, don't sink my tail. It's been a whale.

I'm back, btw. Catching up. But we really need to do something about this plastic.

Pokemon Dreams

I dreamt a little about Pokemon last night.

It's probably because I started playing again. Pokemon Black for DS.

The first couple hours of the game felt a bit familiar, so it's possible I've tried it before. Not sure if I just gave it a quick go without saving, or if that was Pokemon White, which I also have, and have a save file on pretty far in, but didn't think was mine because I bought both of these games second hand and haven't had much time for them since I did. Maybe it was though. I guess we'll see in due time.

Now that I've started you know how this'll go. It's addicting. But I've promised myself to really only play when I have time to spare: at night, during commuting, or when I'm sick. I tried the late state earlier, but I've been in the middle state a while now, so maybe I'll take some time to play some more before it's all first state sessions.

Probably better to play all day than stay up late night again and get hooked. My cold's not going away this way...

It's possible this will all be a very short gaming phase though, since I really don't have time to pick up anything as massive as this right now - if I have time to pick up anything at all - and it's usually the first, and most rewarding phase of the game, that's the most fun anyway. The one where progress is quick, incentives are all but few and far between, your Pokemon pretty much level up in every battle, and there's no way to get lost. Each new area you enter has an event trigger and is all new for you to explore. Every one you speak to has something new to say - whereas later on you get the same responses for half the characters, but still have to try them all because some convos change according to certain triggers in the game, and I'm a completionist like that.

Also new Pokemon get harder and harder to find, and level up, and everything both speeds up and slows down into one eternal grind.

Ah well. Might as well play a bit more while the hype's still high! Maybe it'll last this time. Maybe I'll actually catch' em all. I'll be back. It's time for... Pokemon Black.

Typing To The Test

Remember 10 Fast Fingers? Well I just discovered something similar to test my speed-typing tendencies! It has a little more competitive an interface, different categories - complete with what you might call dialectal typos if you happen to go by American English - and rankings that let you list your initials, score, location (as long as it's within the UK) and see how you rank.

It's pretty fun. Give it a try. I got...
