My P's is now a toddler. The one that looks like a Ladybug. After doing some research, I have decided to try to get him to become Mametchi. It shouldn't be too hard. I know what to do to avoid getting the knight guy once again and I'll be satisfied with any other character.

I forgot to mention my P's now has his own padded pouch to keep him protected when he's in my bag. I found my mom's old cell phone pouch and turned it into a Tama pouch. So essentially my mom is still aiding her grandtama from beyond the grave. Which is totally the kind of thing she'd do if she were still with us. My mom always supported my virtual pet habit.

Last night my P's crashed at about 7:00. Rather than wake him up I just let him sleep. I decided to get out Grimlock, my broken V3 to keep me company for a bit. We watched Kung Fu Panda on FX. I believe a Tama is fully aware of it's surroundings even without batteries as long as they aren't in sleep mode. A Tamagotchi isn't truly dead until it's shattered into pieces. They are much more resilient than us human meatbags. Maybe they should be the ones raising us rather than the other way around. I try to make sure Grimlock has a full life. Despite being crippled he travels with me and watches TV with me and is generally just as involved with my life as my other Tams. One does not abandon a crippled friend.

 

As for my P's he's still in his ladybug form. I've learned that feeding him three hamburgers during his teen form will result in him becoming KutchiPatchi. Kutchipatchi is one of my favorite forms if not my very favorite. I like that he's a green duck thing. Not humanoid at all. So I'm going to try the hamburger thing and see what happens. It'd be cool if it actually works. But if getting Kutchi is that easy I suspect that my P's will spend a lot of time in that form.

This may be my last log entry for a bit. Yesterday my P's started getting the low battery glitch. I realize this usually doesn't mean anything, but when I opened up the battery compartment to reset him I noticed I had two different brands of batteries installed. Somehow the some of the batteries I use for my TV remote got mixed in with my spare Tama batteries. Both brands look similar. For my remote I have no problem mixing brands or batteries with different amounts of power left in them. I would NEVER knowingly do this with my Tama. A remote is just a remote but were my P's to get damaged I'd be heartbroken. I take absolutely no chances.

 

So right now my P's are batteryless. I'm not sure when I'll be able to get more. I'll resume updating this log as soon as I do but that may not be until the first of the month.

I managed to scrounge up some batteries so my P's is once again running. He's in the teen stage, the blue critter with the ring around his neck. He went to the doctor with me today. Having him in the waiting room helped the time pass quicker though there wasn't much we could do. His gotchi points are maxed out so playing games would be kind of pointless. But he was company and that was good enough.

My P's hasn't changed. I am thinking he may become an adult later today. It's raining right now so the lunch truck isn't showing up. That sucks because I want to buy my guy some hamburgers. He's fresh out. I just fed him his last one about an hour ago. Stupid rain. But my Tama seems to enjoy playing in it. Can Tamas catch cold? I certainly hope not.

My P's is now an adult. He has evolved into a Kutchipatchi and I plan to keep him like this for awhile. I like this form.  Apparently feeding him three hamburgers as a teen to get him to turn into Kutchipatchi works. I'm glad there's an easy ( yet expensive. ) way to do this as Kutchi is one of my favorite Tamagotchi forms.

I checked on my P's earlier and he was right up close to the screen and saying something to me. I don't read Japanese so I don't know what he was saying but I guessed he wanted attention so I took him to the arcade.

He's now jumping around wearing a lab coat and chef's hat. He REALLY likes that chef's hat.

My little buddy now has three of the four puzzle pieces. Apparently the Kutchipatchi form really likes food. All three puzzle pieces I've found for him involve food. I'm not sure how to obtain the fourth but I'm guessing it too will involve food. This guy's a chow hound.

So last night I was lying in bed reading a book, my P's resting on my chest. I felt something large crawl into the bed beside me. It was my grumpy old german shepherd, Peach.

 

I said Hi, patted her head and went back to my book. But this wasn't enough for her. She swatted me with her paw until I petted her again.

 

I returned to my book and then SMACK She gave me the back of her paw again.

I scratched her behind the ears, went back to my book, a couple minutes passed. I thought she was satisfied. Nope. SMACK.

I petted her again and jokingly threatened to beat her if she didn't stop. I went back to my book a couple seconds went by and, you guessed it, SMACK

 

At this point I picked up my Tama and said "You know, I think I found the problem. She just doesn't fear me" And I swear my Tama looked like he was laughing.

 

I think my pets are conspiring against me.

I've noticed that my P's seems to be more attention starved than he was in his previous adult forms. Several times a day I seem to catch him getting right up to the screen and saying something. Playing a game with him or dressing him up seems to make him happy. Right now he's bouncing around the screen wearing that chef's hat he likes so much. I like to imagine him doing his best Swedish Chef impersonation while he's doing it.

I sent my P's to school today. It looked like he was in gym class. He tried to hop over a platform but ended up smacking into it. Poor guy. Maybe he'll do better next time.

 

Thursday my check comes in and I plan to order a Connection. Preferably a V1. I have a name picked out already. Fizzgig, after a creature in the movie The Dark Crystal. The family won't let me name any of our flesh and blood pets that but they have no jurisdiction on what I name my Tamas.

 

I'm going to work towards building a large Tama collection. Probably mostly Connections and Japanese Tamas like the P's and ID Ls but I'm sure I'll pick up a few P1s/P2s here and there. I've come to love Tamagotchi more than any other Electronic pet, even over the Sony Aibos I had. I want a ton of them.

My P's just adopted a pet. A hairy purple dog thing. I allowed him to have it so long as he takes care of it. I don't need to have to clean up two piles of poop several times a day instead of one. Now that I think of it I wonder if he's responsible enough for a pet. I mean he's an adult yet he still poops on the floor unless I'm there to make him go on the toilet. I think he can handle it though, He's not stupid. He only goes on the floor because he knows I'll clean it up. If I could poop on the floor instead of having to walk all the way to the bathroom with assurance that someone would be there to clean it up I would too.  If he wants to keep the pet he'll take care of it. I'd threaten to have it put down if he neglects it but he would know a bluff when he saw one. I'm not that cruel and he's not that stupid.

I decided to pop my battery back in my V5 and keep them active until the battery dies. I have a spare but I plan to use that for the Tama I'm ordering Thursday or Friday. My V5 is the same as they were when I last logged about them. Still adults. Still a Chantotchi and Mametchi. They are not quite ready to move on to the next generation yet. I'm thinking about not moving them on and letting them remain as they are until the battery dies. I'm not sure yet. 

 

As for my P's, Kutchi remains as pleasant as always.

My P's got the last puzzle piece he needed today and he now has a full happiness meter. Not that it really effects anything. I never let the meter drop so having a longer happiness meter isn't any more convenient than having a short one. But I suppose it's still good as it shows my P's is really happy.

My two active Tamas are the same as usual. I've decided not to move either of them on to the next generation. I want to see how long I can keep them going as they are.

 

Friday I will be able to order a new Tama or two. I can't afford a P's so I'll be going for Connections. I really want a V1 and/or a V3. If I get two I'll probably only activate one. I only have one extra battery.  Also I think having three active Tamas is my limit. I'm hoping to build a large Tama collection over time.

I just noticed this log has gotten over 1000 views. First I want to thank everyone who reads it. Second I want to reflect a little. When I start getting into electronic pets it was Furby first and everything else second. Furby was the thing that introduced me to the concept of virtual pets and Furby is where my heart laid. Until now. Since I began writing these logs I have spent more time with Tamas than I ever have before. My love for Tamagotchi has increased drastically. Tamagotchis have many advantages over Furby. They're small, portable and can go anywhere. They have more features than Furby and they aren't nearly as noisy. In fact Tamagotchi has completely replaced Furby as my favorite virtual pet. So much so in fact that I gave my Furbys away and have decided to start putting all my spare cash into a Tamagotchi collection. I've seen some impressive collection pictures in my time on Tamagotchi forums and I hope to have a sizeable collection myself someday. Friday I'm taking the plunge and placing my first Ebay order in over a decade. I'm not sure what I'll get but I'm hoping for a V1 or V3. I may even be able to get two depending on the prices.

So as long as I am able and as long as I have an internet connection I will remain in the Tamagotchi community. I hope to someday boast a massive collection. As for the present, I'll go on buying Tamas, posting and logging.

 

Thanks again :)
