July 24th-30th

Well Moana and I had a few busy days. First my best friend arrived the 27th (ish I am a little vague on the date) and she hung out for a 2 days before we went to the Calgary Zoo then to West Edmonton mall. Moana unfortunately did not enjoy the roller coasters and the amusement park rides.... as she was locked in a locker. And well things snowballed and she passed away.  She was either 50 or 52 or somewhere in between it is sad, but she had a really good final day (the zoo) so I can't be too mad or sad.

 

But in light of that... I decided on July 31st to hatch my sky blue tamagotchi plus ( the Japanese V1) 

July 31st

This is the day that Sora entered this fine world, on this a day that should be reserved for global celebration the birthday of none other than Harry Potter. He was the king of Teen angst, the lord of being oblivious the champion of recklessly brave and all around the golden boy of Gryffindors everywhere.  

Sora hatched from his egg rather late in the day (I had a cooking palooza and I was very busy). As a baby Sora was very typical, he lived in a frenzy of poop tears and cries. There were baby bottles just flying everywhere and then when I was right at my breaking point he evolved into a Marutchi and things settled down. Yes we had to play some games, but shortly after he went to bed. He did have a very big day after all.

 

August 1st

And this brings us today, With Sora by rambunctious bouncing ball of joy. Sora hasn't summoned his keyblade yet, but in his defence he hasn't needed one. Fun fact Sora means sky which is what I think of when I see this shell. This is one of my favourite shells and it just helps me relax.

Sora likes to roll around his screen and bounce around making his version of the duck face. Sora enjoys pokemon and and talking in riddles. Today he has been asking about what kind of fish chases a mouse.

That's sad about Moana but at least she enjoyed her last day on Earth. Perhaps she's found an amusement park in Tama Heaven so she can finally enjoy those rides :)

It looks like Sora's life is off to a good start!

August 2nd

Sora will be three when he awakens from his slumber and I truly hope that all his memories will be in order. He should also evolve right when he wakes up so that is very exciting on my end. When he awoke he evolved right away, and then proceeded to see the world through his teenage eyes, decided the world was just too bright, so he went back to bed for an hour (so today he was 4). He evolved into hinotamatchi! (again I thought first gen was always ichigotchi).

Yesterday I think I missed at least one training call, he got sick and I think one of his meters emptied once. He is having a rough go at things apparently. But I did fill his meter before his attention icon went off.

 

August 3rd

Sora is now a moody sullen silent Roxas before he met Axel or Xion, which I guess is all due to being a teenager. So far he hasn’t whipped out his keyblade so I guess as long as I get get a keyblade in the head things are doing pretty damned good! Yesterday he did get much better care (or I like to think he did or that’s just what I am remembering). And because of his evolving in the morning and going back to bed… He will be age 5 when he wakes up today. This age thing will not impact his growth as far as I am aware so at least there is that.

 

August 4-6th

I forgot to mention this while I was typing this up.... Sora evolved into Kuchipatchi a tama that I have a very fond love for so I am very happy!

So I am sick, and these past couple of days have been a blur but today (the 6th) is my birthday that’s right I have made another voyage on this space rock around the sun and survived! And that I think is something amazing, afterall riding a space rock in space can’t be a safe thing to do. And have you met humans lately? Anyways Sora wished my a happy birthday and he was among the fam jam that called and texted me. My sister for the record called me twice and was the first to see my new hair purple in the roots, down to purple pink and ending with hot pink.

What were we up to today? Lounging in bed wishing for the sickness just to leave my human vessel, working on my bullet journal that my best friend gave me (I finished November! I did a peter pan and harry potter theme as November is movie themed). And it is all caught up with my going ons in august and her visit with me! (it was cut short sadly). And we made mint chocolate brownies which taste amazing! All in all it has been a decent day and I have spent some time playing animal crossing trying to get caught up I am now in the tail end of June ( I was in may so progress is being made).

I am so sorry for not logging! My V3 ran out of batteries a while ago, I haven’t been able to get new ones. I do enjoy reading your logs though!

I had one big event to recap and that required allot of time to do so as all my notes were in my head (thus I couldn’t finish it at Granny’s). It was quite a day :^) and I can finally use those pictures that had been staring at me for months :D

==Vendredi le 24 novembre==
It was an average day for Sotilde where she observed me, unfortunately, procrastinating for most of it. We didn’t walk that day as I declined my father’s off when I was right in the middle of (finally) working. An hour later, dinner commenced and we finished another episode of Kolchak: The Night Stalker.

Sotilde seemed to have gotten a bit porkier in regards to the numbers in her stats. I always try to keep her under 30, feeling that this is healthy although early in her life she was in the 40’s range. This gives an idea of how big she would be in real life and I wouldn’t see weight gain as troubling under those conditions anyway, as she would just be cuddly.

I returned after a shower to find Sotilde snug in her bed and I turned off her lights. She was 165 that day.

==Samedi le 25 novembre==
My family and I went to the Royal Ontario Museum (“ROM”) as part of my Geology assignment on the rocks and minerals in Ontario (both Northern and Southern Ontario, even though they are geologically different). There was a rush likely after lunch to get everything I would need and get going. I took Sotilde – to raise morale of course XD – along with my Mini and Wox my Akai (a MALE Ribbotchi, by the way). We drove into downtown Toronto with its multitude of gigantic buildings, expensive shops, and ceaseless crowd of walkers. The streets were on the narrow side and traffic was tight, but not mad. As we walked to museum, my mother mentioned I could use her phone for any pictures. I gladly accepted and stopped to take a picture of the ROM.

We waited in a carpeted lobby to get our tickets, standing in the lines formed artificially by thick elastic that ran between posts. I checked Sotilde during the wait and wondered if anyone would recognize a Tamagotchi. The viking exhibit was clearly advertised with a poster behind the counter depicting a robust wooden ship on tempestuous, violent waters. We got our tickets and guide books and stood in the next room with huge dinosaur skeletons.

My father and I headed to the rock and mineral display called “Earth’s Treasures” while the other half of the family went elsewhere. The room had rows and rows of display cases showcasing rock and mineral fragments of all kinds. There was a meteorite display to the left of the entrance with dark, dented rocks and a sitting area to the right with a huge gold coin. Some of the displays were dedicated to just one mineral, such as the displays on calcite and quarts, common light-coloured and translucent minerals that came in a whole rainbow of colours (colour alone is not a good diagnostic feature as it can be altered by small amounts of impurities). Although there were quite a few samples that had typical gemstone qualities, there also were the more “boring” solid, dull samples of varying shapes, some round and others resembling a cluster of spikes and still others appearing like rocky moss. Not all of the specimens were behind glass as some particularly large rocks were fenced off and left open at the top, with a counter-intuitive warning to not touch (several kids did and my father as well, dismissing the sign). Also towards the back was a display of several large ore samples – rocks that contain valuable minerals inside them like iron, copper, and gold. Most were big enough to demand their own space and I distinctly remember a thick slab flanking the wall and a white, glittering lump of magnesium. The ore display had an accompanying video in English and French which would blare out and easily annoy anyone forced to listen. At one point, a group of children pressed the button and I can’t quite remember if they saw the whole thing, attention span and all. Overall, the specimens presented were fascinating in their own rights, regardless of geological knowledge.

I believe I brought a bag with me to house my things and that was where Sotilde and company resided. For the most part, things were very still for them as I spent most of my time standing in front of the displays and detailing their contents. After a good two hours or so, I took a break and sat down with my father on a bench in a narrow hall. Across from us was a few rock displays and one of them had rocks that lit up [future note: don’t remember why and my geology book never mentioned anything like this]. A group of children clustered around the glowing rocks as I commented about what I had done and we reviewed the objectives. It then turned out I had taken the wrong angle for it as only the rocks and minerals from Ontario were of any relevance to the assignment. Things proceeded much more quickly after that and out of all the displays in the room, only four of them were relevant. Southern Ontario got a single display while the others were from Northern Ontario (where there is allot of mining).

Focusing on the Ontario specimens led me (and my tamas by default) to a dark room at the back of exhibit. There were display cases running across the wall that were lit from below and showcased handcrafted objects and specimens of gold. One case had a shimmering, intricate gold and emerald necklace that would have been captivating in another exhibit but, amongst all the natural wonders, was not superior simply because it had been crafted. One important display had various gold specimens suspended by glass shelves and the gold appeared like a crust on some rocks and on others like a coating or an internal ripple.

Having achieved everything I needed, the next step was to take photographs for reference. My assignment required sketching samples so pictures would be even better. Of course, I got one of Sotilde at the end of it:

The rest of the family had popped in to tell us they would be in one of the other rooms when we wanted to leave. That would be very soon as we stayed till nearly closing time. We left “Earth’s Treasures” and walked down the museum’s mansion-like steps to find a room with several stuffed animals – the taxidermy kind, not the huggable ones. The fakest looking animal was the stuffed housecat, oddly included with the mountain lion and exotic birds. There was one funny “display”:

I used this opportunity to take pictures, some of my family and some of Sotilde with the animals:

When we left as a group, we were forced to wait while a bunch of people finished taking their wedding pictures, blocking the only passage. Suffice to say, nobody congratulated the newly weds. When we walked out, the sky was dark and the myriads of night lights – street lights, lit windows, headlights, and store signs – stood out distinctly. The walkers were still walking and we became one of the crowd as we navigated to the car. As we did so, a beautiful, soulful melody sailed through the air from a street musician in front of the museum. It was the perfect end to the day. On that day, Sotilde was 166.

- - - -
Things have been pretty easy lately but I imagine I’ll be doing most of my updates on the weekend, primarily because my newest French course takes me away from the computer, a nice break for both myself and Sotilde. Only this week have I begun taking notes in a different logging style which will follow a combined weekly log instead of a daily one, but with breaks if needed. However, that won’t be implemented for a long time as I still have plenty of notes that use the old style, because more was happenin’ then.

August 7th

Today we are back to work in the lab even though I am sick as a song, my ear is doing the ‘I’m gonna explode but not really’ thing my throat is doing the swollen and sore thing, and I have developed a cough. Well today I didn’t have much lab work to do (It’s all about timing) and I read some papers and studied the evolutionary biology book that I have been reading and I went home early. For the record I also had a nap. But I did get my GA contract signed so I can work and get paid for it. Sora is age 9 today I think soon very soon he will be evolving.

 

August 8th

Sora is 10 today and the matchmaker has started to arrive. Today much like yesterday we went to the lab and unlike yesterday I did some lab work! And I did more of what I did yesterday, lots of reading about science and a nap. Also I made some progress in platinum, I got the sixth gym, badge something I have never done before. Can I say amazing? I have never really played through some pokemon games and gen 4 has been one of those that I start a hundred times get to the second or 4th gym and just stop. I don’t know why I stopped, I got annoyed, I found a different game and so on. If I am going to say I don’t like gen 4 I need to at least play through it once to decide on it.

 

August 9th

Today my cold or plague has been easing up I guess my nap the other day did the trick. Today I was very productive with my reading, and I have even done the dishes I did one chore like I wanted to do. And I may have also eaten all of my birthday brownies today so I baked some more because you can never have too many brownies, well I guess you can. Sora is 11 and the matchmaker has been coming around so I really do think that soon he will be evolving.

 

August 10th

Happy friday! Sora, I hate to admit that Sora got some neglect, so much neglect that I got a care miss. I feel awful but in the grand scheme of things adulthood caremisses don’t really count towards oldie care misses and longevity. But I worked on some reading, I subcultured for the first time with this organism in the BSC so I ended this week on a high note. And today I finished a bracelet that I have been working on for ages and it felt good to just finish it and get it out of my hair.

 

August 11th

Sora had a fun day with me today instead of working on school work or housework we decided to turn the entire day into working on my bullet journal and now I have pages up until the end of December! We even added several collection pages, a page to round up 2018, a page to welcome 2019 (with goals), an apocalyst (what would you want to do if the world ended?), and the playlist of 2019 a list of favourite songs. So, now we can sit back and relax and not worry about layouts for a little bit. Sora did get a little neglected on this day but I do tend to be goal oriented. And Sora got to meet my Ps!

@Rory - Pokemon Platinum was my first Pokemon game, and thus I have such nostalgia for the Sinnoh region. I even own a copy of Pokemon Diamond (that unfortunately is a pirated copy that I wasn't even lookin' for). It's funny how my first run through of a Pokemon game was a total mess - like, I didn't even have a proper team - and ended up with so many logged hours and more Pokemon than I would ever catch nowadays (mostly just my team and whatever cool ones I find). My brother was kinda the same way, but more orderly (I introduced him to Pokemon by way of Platinum).

 

This log will finish of November and then we’ll be off on the happenings of December. WHOO, we might just get onto the current year, if not completely up to date @^) I’m excited for that and I can only wonder what life would be like at that point.

==Dimanche le 26 novembre==
Church was pretty ordinary (‘cept for a chops busting (beratment) over being 15 minutes late to church). The rest of the Sabbath was a bit muddled as after lunch, I lethargically sat down with Sotilde and company to watch the second episode of Kirby: Right Back at Ya, then took them up for my devotional singing, and wasn’t sure to be “domestic” (clean and mend) or not (consume entertainment). That eventually resulted in a short clean-up and then heading downstairs (with tamas, of course) to the computer.

Whenever Sotilde is at the computer, she is always facing me so she never sees the screen unless it’s television. So what I did there was a mystery unless she turned on on the telepathic channels, whereupon she would have seen the everyday adventures of a radical, perpetually angry black kid with a voluminous Afro. By that I am talking about The Boondocks – but I will stress the comic only as the TV series let the creator have free reign that was obviously restrained by newspaper standards. The Boondocks is a work of satire and hilariously written [future note: I read the entire 6 years worth of content in a month, which says allot].

 

From my perspective, the day was a bit of a mess, yet Sotilde accompanied me everywhere till she winked out after dinner. She was 167 that day.

 

==Lundi le 27 novembre==
Sotilde and my Mini came to the ESL with me and we had a full class that day. The other, primary teacher did allot of demonstrating for various body parts with her face and arms. She, like last time, apologized for showing her tongue in case the students thought it was rude. I was glad she was there because I would not be too keen to demonstrate. I plumb forgot to check either of of my tamas and thus sneakily did during the teachers’ meeting.

At home we watched another episode of Kolchak: The Night Stalker that was so enthralling I wanted to see the whole thing. But then entered my biggest gripe with watching TV with other people: someone (because they were sleeping on the couch) wasn’t watching the movie so we had to save the rest for when they were with us. We could have quickly switched to “Journey to the Center of the Earth” which looked like it would have corny musical moments, but I protested. As my mother took up the entire couch, I had to sit with my father – who left to do housework – and my brother, who later left because he wasn’t there. Additionally, it was approaching midnight. Due to her schedule, Sotilde got to see more of the episode then of the life episode I had to deal with.

Sotilde was 168 that day.

==Mardi le 28 novembre==
An average day where around 6-ish, I moved Sotilde and my French materials to the dining room table. We went walking around 7-ish and talked about newspapers, the somewhat best one being the Toronto Sun, and how Bandai might be scalping us with the second wave minis. Sotilde got to spend allot of time with Okro who I hoped would pass on soon. Sotilde winked out on the dining room table and I smiled at her fondly. She was 169 that day.

==Mercredi le 29 novembre==
I’ve got no notes for today so I’m guessing it was average. My little hedgehog probably saw me study allot and perhaps she reflected on study habits, or eagerly waited for her next serving of lobster. She was 170 that day.

==Jeudi le 30 novembre==
I had another nightmare about Sotilde. I dreamt, in a slightly distorted, shadowy version of my home, that the matchmaker came for Sotilde and offered a more punkish version of Oyajitchi. The thing was I had to woo him with items and an inventory popped up with boxed rows containing items, primarily moustaches. I selected a cool looking moustache and gave it to the suitor but he didn’t like it. I then gave him some cigar looking thing and he was overjoyed. He married Sotilde but mid-way through the animation I realized this would end the long-lived oldies status so I reset.

When the download and reset options came up for Sotilde, I reset my Akai to see what they corresponded to. Oddly, I had trouble bringing Sotilde back and I turned away, worried and confused I had lost her. In the midst of thinking I glanced back and saw Sotilde we there! But alas, she was having screen problems. I connected her with my Akai twice and her problems started to go away. I think the dream still maintained a sense of gloom that was manifested in the shadows and I was abruptly pulled from it by the beeping of my Mini.

Parts of this dream were no doubt influenced by the Vpets I read of that acted as a life simulation and required specific items and other things to keep the couple together (pretty sure Tamenageri has one with dating cats in it, which I had likely read before). Additionally, I had also read before the connections can help solve problems on one of the versions.

Beyond that dream, nothing else out of the ordinary happened to Sotilde. She was 171 that day.
- - - -
This whole thing was done around an hour and a half, with instrumental music (perhaps my new special tool). As there are still hours left in the day, I’ll get right down to December’s logs, but I’ll break here for the sake of logic.

@ knighttchi's ballad I started with pokemon gold! And I don't usually start with a team in mind at all and I sorta just catch all the pokemon I need to complete the pokedex although I rarely complete it. I really don't think I could not try to catch all the pokemon in each route... Or try out different pokemon cuse why not just because its not common in the meta doesn't mean it wont be fun

 

Anyways Sora is finally an Oldie he evolved last night!

It makes sense to catch Pokemon for the sake of familiarizing oneself with all the type match ups (though Pokemon are repeated), and also just seeing what's there to begin with. I don't start with a team idea also as I just pick up what looks like an interesting Pokemon to have. Most of the time, all Pokemon become good Pokemon just by training them. I've been on and off playing Crystal and Togepi is a good reminder of the exception as it looks like its only saving grace is going to be learning return, as its high special attack is locked away by game mechanics. I have this little project I started with the Generation 1 games where I try to use all the Pokemon introduced in that generation in my team (barring a few of course, since a legit Mewtwo is only found at the end of the game at level 70). It really expands the experience and no doubt I'll do this with my other Pokemon games (trading teams between version to keep them, of course).

 

Congrats for Sora! I hope he lives to a ripe old age and never has to get dentures :^)
