Goodness gracious, I am so lazy! There’s quite a bit to tell too, so please bear with me as I ramble on. I do have a lot of pictures, per usual fashion. Here we go. Daisuke evolved into Kuchipatchi on the 20th, as expected. It’s so great to see this little guy again. As always, I like playing around with things so I started off by turning him orange with the orange juice in the snacks section (by feeding it to him 3 times in a row). Doesn’t he look adorable?
I then used the Hero Set and he morphed into his alter ego, Patchiman! Baths have no effect on color changes brought about by foods but changing him using the Hero Set will change him back to his original color. Neat little feature.
Here he is as orange Patchiman.

March 25, 2011 (continued)
First off, I’d like to mention that I’ve unfortunately decided to not run my Angelgotchi. I have a feeling I’m going to miss things like calls for praise and such and I’d feel bad for doing that. Even during the spring break, I’ve been incredibly busy. @_@ I will be even more busy as the break draws to a close this week. I have, however, received a request to start up my TMGO and I am curious enough (not to mention that I have never run one before; I’ve run my Angelgotchi many times thus far) to give one of my two a go.
Secondly, I know I mentioned that I’ve reached a plateau of sorts for collecting, especially considering how long it took me to prepare for (I enjoy making everything look pretty ) and take my latest collection picture but…I caved a bought a couple more. =facepalm= XD The first newest addition to the family is my Mame Game (special thanks to tamagotchi_freak06 over at Tama Zone) and my Marine Border Tamagotchi Nano. I got really lucky with the Nano because that particular design on Hobby Link Japan went out of stock very shortly after I ordered mine. I chose SAL shipping for the Nano so I’m hoping it’ll be here within the next couple of weeks. I received the Mame Game in the mail today. I tried it out and it's really entertaining! It's definitely a Tetris-like game.
So here’s my blue TMGO! A fellow TamaTalk member surprised me and sent me a faceplate as a congratulatory gift a few months ago (thanks, tamame20!) and so I decided to pop it in. It features Mimitchi, my all-time favorite character, the background is blue (didn’t show up so well, that darn printer), and it says OldSchoolTama at the top. It's so me!
I hatched my TMGO and out of the egg came a baby boy. It’s too bad that there’s no naming option but I give all my Tamagotchis names anyway. I decided to name him Darren. He evolved into Ahirukutchi after the standard baby stage hour. I stink at taking pictures when it comes Tamagotchis other than the color versions (I’m just out of practice, having run only my +C for so long) so bear with me as I keep on practicing.
The TMGO is okay. I’m sure this has been mentioned already but the sound kind of caught me off guard. It’s like the sound is rough and “broken.” Not at all like the typical “beeps” that I’m used to. I don’t really find the TMGO too fascinating at the moment, to be honest. I think it has to do with the color Tamagotchis out there. Once you play with those, there’s no going back. I think I’ve got to give it some time and try out all the figurines I have.
I’ll be back in a bit for more updating! Thanks for reading.
Posted 19 April 2011 - 06:04 PM
I know I’m so behind with logging (my last update was made on April 9th about what happened with my Tamagotchis on March 25th ) but I just had to make a quick update because look what came in the mail today! This deserves its own immediate update. XD This is the first time I've purchased a Tamagotchi so close to its release date. I’m so happy that it’s finally here! What’s great is that it arrived today because I’m done with clinicals for the week and I’ve got a few days of rest before my long lecture day on Fridays, so I'll be able to get it up and running soon.
I purchased it brand new for under $60 total, in my favorite color, and it only took 2 weeks to get here with SAL shipping. I was so tempted to open up the box right after I got home from clinicals this afternoon but I wanted to make sure that I was changed out of my scrubs, cleaned up, and all settled down before I got to open this gem. It really is more beautiful seeing it in person, though pictures of it are gorgeous as well.
I look forward to logging my iD L. I am running my TMGC+C as usual, my TMGO (I think I’m going to keep running this one but I won’t be logging about it), and my iD that I recently got in the mail (more about that soon). I also received a Tamagotchi Nano in the mail recently so I might start that one up as well.
I don't have as much to do this week so I’ll be making greater efforts to get my log completely updated very soon. Please stay tuned! Thanks so much for checking in!

Not much going on today with Daisuke. I’m really fond of Kuchipatchi (and so is my boyfriend XD) so I let him hang around for a while.
Darren evolved into Kuchipatchi, to my pleasant surprise. I hadn’t been taking particularly good care of him. Nonetheless, it was very nice to see him.
I let him get up to 99 pounds and he turned into a chubby little guy! I have to admit, I panicked for a second there. I was like, what do I do to fix this?? Then I gave him some medicine, he pooped a ton in rapid succession (that was a new sight for me!), and all was good.
See how happy he is? I'm sure he feels great too. XD
I'll be back for more soon…

April 1, 2011
Not much happened today with my lovelies. Daisuke had evolved into the Oldie Ojitchi in between my last entry and this one. As always, Fridays are really packed. So packed, actually, that when I finally got a chance to look at Daisuke in the evening, I was met with a startling sight. I had been taking care of him here and there throughout the day but there was a long stretch of time when I couldn’t watch him. Daisuke was sick but never had I seen him so sick before! I’ve heard tell of people rescuing their Tamagotchis from the brink of death so when I saw him like this, I knew this was the moment. I selected the medicine icon and instead of the usual medications, an ambulance came straightaway.
I liked how the ambulance bonked the black ghost away from Daisuke (couldn't get a snapshot of it on time) and how the little ghost couldn’t get in to the hospital while Daisuke was being treated. My guy turned up as good as new! So glad I caught him in time. I didn't want to have to start all the way over at generation 1 again. That's that, in case any of you were wondering what it looks like during that narrow window of time when you can save your Tamagotchi from passing away.
Darren is still a Kuchipatchi and like his big bro (before he turned into an Oldie), I let him stick around for a while longer rather than marrying him off right away.
In other news, I made a purchase today. Big surprise, right? It was too good to pass up though so I immediately jumped on this opportunity. I love being in the right place at the right time. Thanks to a member over at Tama Zone, I now have a blue Tamagotchi iD that is in fantastic condition. She gave me a great deal for it. I went ahead and canceled my order for the blue and silver iD from HLJ, which had been on backorder for 30 days since I placed my order. It's too bad that HLJ didn't work out but when one door closes, another one opens.
More to come soon…

I took Daisuke to the matchmaker today and he and Otokitchi were married after a brief courtship. They had a baby girl, who I named Emi (“beautiful blessing”). Since this was a girl created by two Oldies, Emi evolved straight into the adult female character, Gorippatchi. No pictures of Darren today.
April 3, 2011
Enjoying the beautiful scenery.
Today was a relaxing day for Emi. Since she had already evolved into an adult, all we needed to do was wait two sunrises before she was able to go and visit the matchmaker. In the meantime, we took out her 3D glasses and played with them for a bit, since they are her special item. I loved the animations.
That's all for now...

I took Emi to the matchmaker today, where she fell in love with Shimashimatchi, and they had a baby girl. I named her Fumiko (“child of treasured beauty”). Fumiko evolved into the toddler Sakuramotchi, as usual for the odd generation (I am currently on the 9th generation). Nothing much else happened for the rest of the day. I still haven’t taken Darren to the Date Place.
April 5, 2011
So my package from HLJ arrived today, carrying my Marine Border Tamagotchi Nano. I got quite lucky with this one and snagged it before it went out of stock. I used SAL shipping and it took 11 days to arrive so if anyone is wondering about SAL shipping from HLJ, I would definitely recommend it, especially if you’d like to save some money and don’t mind waiting a bit longer for your item. It’s packaged nicely too. Just look at all that empty space in the box! Everything was secured firmly though.
I'm really pleased with this particular design. First of all, there's a lot of blue in it (I'm sure you all know by now that it's my favorite color) but what's even more special about this one to me is that it's got that sea/marine/ocean theme going on. This is something I can appreciate because I've lived very close to the ocean all my life and have a lot of very fond memories involving the ocean. I've moved around quite a bit for as long as I can remember but being close to the ocean has been a constant factor in my life to this day. I don't think that's ever going to change.
Fumiko spent most of the day outside today, basking in the sunlight and playing with the blossoms that were falling from the tree at the side of the house. Sometimes I wish I had as much free time as she does.
Darren had evolved into an Oldie and I figured it was high time that I take him to Ms. Busybody so that she could find him a companion. As soon as we got there, Darren took one look at Ringotchi and told me that she was the apple of his eye. XD I held back my laughter because it was obvious that he was so smitten by her that he hadn't realized what he had just said. Well, she clearly felt the same way about him. They were married in a nice wedding ceremony and then he brought her back to his place, where they shared a meal together. What a happy couple!

My iD came in the mail today! It looks like a jewel. I’m loving the pearly blue sheen of the egg shell!
I’ve started looking through the download topics for all the downloads still available and I’ve been scouring Ebay for a really cheap phone that would transfer these files to my iD. Looking forward to logging this one!
I decided to do something a little different today and made 4 or more care misses to get the “bad” teen, Ichigotchi. I’ve gotten Chamametchi, the good teen, many times already so I wanted to try something new. Plus, I think Ichigotchi is adorable.
Nothing much went on today with Darren and his bride. They enjoyed a nice honeymoon. I think they overindulged just a little too much.
I'll be back soon for more! It's the weekend so I'll really be pushing to get things all updated so that I can start talking about my iD L already!
Posted 23 April 2011 - 09:57 PM
Fumiko had been pressing me to use the white cream that was stored away in the chest so I took it out and we played with it. I was under the impression that it was a type of cream that goes on the face but it looks like she’s indulging in a little bit of cake more than anything so maybe it's a type of icing for the cake. This item is good for Makiko too. Just look at her; she looks like a little berry sitting on top of this nice cake! She ate her way out of the cake, emerging through the top there, that silly girl.
Darren and his wife had a cute baby girl today. They definitely enjoyed their time together.

After some brief research, I bought a phone on Ebay, a Palm Treo. It came with an AC adapter, data cable, car charger, SD wireless card, and carrying case, all for under $10 with shipping. I was very pleased with this purchase. I now have a phone with IR!
I decided to start up my new iD and fiddle around with it a little. Not necessarily to start up a brand new generation (I'm going to wait until I receive my phone), just to check out some of the functions. I am very impressed with how everything looks on the iD. Don't get me wrong, the color is fantastic on the TMGC+C but it's even more brilliant on the iD. I connected my TMGC+C to the iD and the two friends played connection games and gave each other gifts (either flowers or poo). Fumiko was stored in the iD’s friend list and vice versa.
The iD's previous owner had Belltchi as the current character.
Visiting each other.
Belltchi's gifts to Fumiko.
Belltchi was stored in Fumiko's friends list.
Shortly after this, Fumiko evolved into Lavuzukintchi.
I noticed something when I was flipping through the menus of the book icon on my TMGC+C. It looks like it keeps a record of the characters who pass on under my care. There, I saw a picture of Midori, my precious 29th generation Otokitchi I had lost a while back. ♥
It was a quiet day on April 8, 2011.
That’s it for now! Thanks for reading!
Posted 24 April 2011 - 02:39 AM
I woke up this morning to find that Fumiko was wearing her finest clothing and looking her best. They really do grow up so fast. :’) We left the house and headed to the matchmaker’s place. Ms. Busybody presented Fumiko with suitor after suitor but none of them seemed to tickle her fancy…until Kuromametchi walked through the door. I had no idea she had a thing for boys with earrings. XD I gave them my blessing and they were married. The couple had a baby girl, who I named Ren (‘water lily”).
After an hour of care, Ren evolved into the even-generation female toddler, Memepetchi, whom I haven’t seen in a while. She’s so adorable!
Darren and his bride had a baby girl a couple of days ago and they left her in my care this morning after a tearful goodbye. I named her Kathryn and she evolved into cute Belltchi after an hour. Kathryn enjoyed a quiet day today. I wanted to fill up the entire training bar over time so I paid a little more attention to the poo cycle this time around.
Posted 24 April 2011 - 08:55 AM

Ren evolved into Chamametchi. Not much else went on today with her.
Kathryn evolved into Shelltchi today. She mostly kept to herself but I did catch her brushing her teeth like a good girl. She caught me looking at her and so she flashed me that brilliant smile of hers.
Kathryn evolved into Pipotchi on April 11, 2011.
Ren evolved into Makiko on the 12th.
It was a quiet day on the 13th.
April 14, 2011
I took Ren to the matchmaker today. She met up with Kuchipatchi there. He looked so handsome. I could see why she was so enamored by him. They got married and had a baby girl, who I named Ume (“plum blossom”). Ume evolved into Sakuramotchi.
Ume evolved into Chamametchi on the 15th.
Sometime between the last entry and today's, Kathryn had evolved into an Oldie. I finally took her to the Date Place. She met her match with Ojitchi and so they were married in a small ceremony.
I've got to run soon but I'll be back for more catching up. I did promise I'd be updated with all the entries, including the iD L ones, by this weekend, and by golly, it's going to happen! Till next time!

I received my Palm Treo + accessories in the mail today. With that, I decided to officially start up my iD. I have to admit that besides that first crucial hour when a Tamagotchi is in the baby stage, I didn’t watch my iD as closely as I wanted for the rest of the day (though I did make sure that my baby didn’t starve or become too unhappy) because it was a beautiful Saturday afternoon, the sun was out, it was hot, and I had promised my boyfriend that we’d go to the beach and into the water because we don’t go nearly enough, much less swim in the water.
Before heading out to the beach, I put in new batteries, pressed the reset button, and selected ‘reset’ on the screen as well. I’m always thrilled to see the introductory screen for the color Tamagotchis when they are started up for the first time. After setting the time, date, my birthday, etc., an egg appeared on the screen and hatched shortly afterward.
There in front of me was a baby boy! I decided to call him Katsuo (“victorious child”). The character name is Pachikutchi. He looks so cute playing around with his trampoline!
After an hour, Katsuo evolved into Mattaritchi. He’s a silly-looking guy, isn’t he? XD
I’ll be back later for more…

I got home from my boyfriend’s house sometime after midnight. I wasn’t very sleepy yet and besides, I was itching to play around with my new Palm Treo and start figuring out how to transfer some downloads to my iD. One software download and instruction manual later, I was beaming wallpapers to my iD.
Thank you, Ra, for the Gryffindor common room wallpaper!
This afternoon, Katsuo evolved into Kiraratchi (oops, caught him mid-jump! ). After taking care of Katsuo’s toothache (he’s got such a sweet tooth), I spent a good chunk of the afternoon haunting the iD downloads threads again and messaging some members for updated links to some downloads. I’m pleased to say that I’ve saved a whole grip-load of the downloads to my computer and no longer feel that I’ve missed out on these wonderful downloads (what can I say? I’m always behind when it comes to getting the latest Tamagotchi models).
I spent the rest of the evening just trying out different items and wallpapers while taking pictures along the way.
Using the Eco Bag to plant a nice garden. Note how the hair curls on the Ecousatchis when standing side-by-side spell "Eco."
Thank you, Tama-Star_Girl, for this beautiful beach wallpaper!
Thanks, neimo, for this fantastic Lord of the Rings wallpaper!
Before I forget, I just wanted to mention that potty-training the TMGO is a very nice feature indeed! I didn’t have to worry about cleaning up after my TMGO at all after Kathryn evolved into an adult. I’d also like to note that catching your TMGO doing the “wiggle dance” and taking your character to the restroom before they make a mess on the ground doesn’t seem to increase the training meter at all when your character is a baby (the stage when it’s easiest, in my opinion, to catch the dance because it happens so frequently…I guess Bandai wanted to challenge us a bit ). This observation is probably well-known by most out there and who knows if it happens every single time (I’ve only made an effort to completely fill up the meter once…my life is way too busy to be watching for the dance all the time) but I didn’t see any mention of the meter only increasing for training after the baby stage, which I didn’t know, and maybe this bit of information might be handy for those who may be wondering about that.
Until next time!

Ume evolved into Lavuzukintchi (again!) today. I will be taking her to the matchmaker in a couple of days.
Katsuo evolved into Kuromametchi sometime during the day. I was busy with clinicals all morning and when I finally got a chance to glance at my boy, there he was!
When I came home from class, I connected my iD with my TMGC+C again. The following pictures show Ume and Katsuo’s exchange. I wish I could read these letters.
I also made sure to get 3 out of 4 or Katsuo’s happy items (Ta, Ma, and To). Mo is earned after your character has been an adult for 72 hours (this applies to all iD characters).
Kathryn and her husband had a baby girl. I currently have a Hoshitchi on my TMGO (I completely missed out on the baby stage), who I decided to name Quinn.
That’s all for now!

My Tamagotchi iD L has arrived from Japan! I'll start it up on the 20th.
I didn’t take pictures of my TMGC+C today because Ume evolved into an adult yesterday and so all I need to do is take her to the matchmaker tomorrow if she’s willing to go. Nothing much else happened with her. I also didn’t take any pictures of my TMGO but she’s doing fine.
In addition to Mondays and Fridays, Tuesdays are busy for me as well because I’ve got clinicals and lab for most of the day. So when I took a look at Katsuo during my free time, I wasn’t surprised that he had his back turned to me. I thought it was only a matter of feeding him or playing games with him but neither of those things worked (the reason why I tried those options first was because on the TMGC+C, when the Tamagotchi has its back turned, some food and games usually helps). Worried, I tried the medicine icon and to my relief, it worked! The four-leaf clover waved around and worked its magic. It was an interesting sight to see because it was different from what happens on the TMGC+C when medicine is administered.
I made sure to clean Katsuo up as well.
That’s all for the moment. I’m going to go grab some food and then I’ll be back later for more updates!

Tamagotchi iD L
I love the packaging for the iD L. It really showcases the Tamagotchi beautifully. It took me a little longer than expected to get it opened, mostly because I wanted to be extra careful and because I stopped every once in a while to take a ton of pictures.
Close-up of the iD L stamp. You can even see how the pearly shell shimmers. Here's an extra picture of the shell too. Love it!
I placed the batteries, which are included, into the iD L and started it up.
I hatched a baby girl! What an adorable character (Momoirotchi). I named her Suzume (“sparrow”).
I caught a picture of her shaking her head in displeasure when I gave her too much food. Her bow is all lopsided, it's cute.
