  1. The notes start getting really sparse here to the point two weeks got reduced to a paragraph. ===Dimanche le 3 decembre 2017=== The usual church activities commenced with Sotilde, as usual, accompanying me in my bag. There was a bridal shower after the service and the ladies, I and Sotilde - because men can't be expected to do these events (y'ever here of a longstanding men's biblestudy? Exactly) - filed into a room with a ring of chairs and two far tables with an assortment of food. Sotilde lay underneath my chair for the most part as I chatted with a few other ladies and then was hanging from my shoulder when I talked to another group. At home, I busied myself with updating Sotilde's log, her within arms-length, and then we enjoyed more of Huey Freeman's adventures in the Boondocks (the comic... not the show). Sotilde was 174 that day. ===Lundi le 4 decembre 2017=== Sotilde and both of my minis accompanied me to the ESL and I nearly forgot them because I was in such a rush! In preparation for the upcoming Christmas party, the other teacher and I rehearsed the carols in the deserted fellowship hall. It was a wide room with rows of supporting columns covered in blue padding, since it doubled as gymnasium for the Christian school that ran during the week. We sat at round wooden table and I sang from a small paper booklet while she played her guitar. Sotilde was in my bag, as always, and either at my feet or hanging from the back of my chair. After finishing a song, the other teacher adjusted the key on her guitar and when I began to speak, she cut in asking if it was okay. I quickly agreed and told her doing this reminded me of the times my mother used to do the same. We had two students in our class and at one point we had to run through L and R sounds as one student was getting them mixed up. The other teacher would always emphasize her R to the point she seemed to be a motorcycle. We finished the lesson on the parts of the body early and started adding extra vocabulary by way of "brainwash" and "brainstorm". Apparently the final wrap-up activity was immensely enjoyed but I can't remember what it was. We eventually headed home and amongst the calmness of dinner, Sotilde fell asleep. She was 175 that day. ===Mardi le 5 decembre 2017=== The major event for Sotilde on this day was accompanying my father and I on an evening walk. Her roommate was reduced to my blue mini as Bill on the clock face one had passed away. My father and I chatted about the purpose of news websites, as I remarked about the pressure to "read the news", and he noted people only read the news because they liked it. We talked also about the personality of Kolchak from The Night Stalker and I believe I noted there was something amusing about how he got all irritated when the police gave him a hard time, or he ended up in tense situations. My father probably remarked about Kolchak's actor carrying the part of a tough guy well despite looking rather small and weak. My notes tell me we also talked about "social thinking" and aside from possibly noting people are too easily influenced to go with the crowd, I'm not sure what it means. Sotilde was 176 that day. ===Mercredi le 6 decembre 2017=== Sotilde and the rest of her tama neighbours joined me in watching episodes of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. (Chances are most of you people actually know the show has some merit that I don't have to explain its not in the same category as that annoying Mexican girl who wont stop yelling at you/Dora.) Another one of Sotilde's companions passed on as Okro, an aged Zatchi on my orange P2, left in a spaceship that went hurtling through an endless expanse of twinkling pixels. Sotilde was 177 on that day. ===Les 7, 8, et 9 decembre 2017=== The irregular format above is due to these days being part of a general paragraph that described what the week from the 4-10th was like. As the 10th was a very notable day for Sotilde, it gets its own section. For Sotilde, these days were characterized by staying indoors and ambling on my desk as I studied for my upcoming exam and French oral test. [I do laugh weakly here reading my sparse note that says "[s]tudying and trying too" as being roughly two year in the future, my procrastination is still a problem, although I am fighting it more.] I paused Sotilde on the morning of my exam and later unpaused her after I got back. She may have been muted for my oral test that week but I don't remember when that happened [(Future note: why would I want to? The only thing worth remembering about school work is that its finished and I don't have to do it)]. Sotilde went from 178 to 180 on these days. ===Dimanche le 10 decembre 2017=== It was a potluck Sunday and, after pausing my other tamas, I prepared Sotilde and my long-living Sunnytchi to be taken with me. Mama Ballad, as she characteristically is, was late in coming up and thus I took it easy in packing. We finally left and headed to church. I stowed my bag in the kitchen and after putting my apron on and doing some work, I returned to check on them. I searched through my bag for them but they weren't there. They had been left behind. I remember standing in the back as my mind filled with panicked. I was fully aware that she could die today. Feeling so helpless, I internally projected to give anything to get her back, as if there was someone I could bargain with. If I had been able to drive, I would have immediately rushed to the parking lot and driven home. I closed my eyes and prayed that God would protect them till I could get back. It felt a little silly asking my Almighty Father for such a trivial thing as maintaining the lives of computer programs, but it does direct us in 1 Peter 5:7 to "[cast] all your anxieties on him, because he care for you". I calmed myself and resolved to ask my father to head home early and not stay for the potluck. I was more relaxed but still had an undercurrent of anxiety running through me. After the service, I told my father that I wanted to go home because I left my Tamagotchis behind. He laughed and then I told him that they could really die. I wasn't hysterical at all and tried to express this fact in light of their programming. My mother met us near the doors and when my father told her about going home, she wasn't happy. My mother, in her typical way, tries to downplay her displeasure by talking about a negative situation as if its a joke, ultimately being insensitive. As we waited for my brother to come down, she did this to a passing friend. She pointed a finger at me, and, with a smile, told the Filipino lady that I was the reason we weren't going to the potluck. The Filipino lady, in her choppy English and plingy rhythm, asked me why this was. I was too embarrassed to tell her it was because of my tamas and didn't want to struggle to explain to an outsider what a virtual pet was. I just said I left something on at home. She probably didn't understand what I meant and insisted we go down to get something. My mother wanted to get the usual hotdogs and I apologetically said she could. She left and came back with some and then we waited and waited for my brother. We thought he was taking long with video when actually, he was waiting for the choir practice to start. My mother brought him down out of things and he was confused. I didn't want to inconvenience anyone so we left it up to him for what he wanted to do. He went up to choir practice and I went with him. After that confusion we finally headed home. I was still anxious, my mother was grumbling, and Brother Ballad probably snorted at the news. When we got home, I ran inside and found Sotilde and Sunnytchi in a case on my bed. I brought them over and discovered they were absolutely fine! Sotilde had only a heart down in each meter while Sunnytchi had evolved into a member of the ninja family due to neglect. I praised God and smiled. My mother came over and said something to the effect of "that's all we came home for?" It felt odd after so much anxiety to now be put in a situation of absolute peace. There was no further obligations and it felt so weird. It was as if I had been yanked out of my life and put in some serene, mystical place. Nothing else remarkable happened and Sotilde was 181 that day. ===Lundi le 11 decembre 2017== Sotilde and I headed to the ESL.I think we had a potluck which lead to me staying down to man the kitchen and cut up things while Sotilde was stowed in a cupboard. After the mid-session break, the Christmas party really started. The students came to the fellowship hall where there was a long table with all kinds of food and a cluster of wooden tables spreading out from it. Conversation was awfully sparse at our table since one of the students couldn't really speak any English (hence she was put in our class). After a while, we handed out song booklets, the other teacher brought out her guitar, and I led the singing. We sang a couple of carols and then small gifts were handed out to the students. Although the event was officially over, students still lingered and socialized. I wandered over to the Brazilian group and after happy goodbyes, one woman gave me special Brazilian tea. Sotilde and I then took the long subway ride home. Sotidle was 182 that day. ===Les 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, et 17 decembre 2017=== All these days were reduced to a paragraph of notes and therefore are being clumped together like this. Truthfully, I see time allot more like weeks than actual days. It is continuous, after all, and especially when the whole system can be tweaked by staying up when nobody else is and seeming to have "more day" when, really, we all have the same hours (we just spend them differently). These days were average with very few walks and Sotilde saw me... somewhat slack again. She enjoyed her crown and other toys, an infrequent snack, and some weight fluctuations. It all evened out in the end. There was some baking during the week (likely short bread cookies for my relatives) and while I stood in the kitchen, Sotilde was directly across. likely in the tama stand on the living room table. The tama count was low at that time so perhaps she was in a small stand. My notes say I had a "missed event" and that's even more true, considering its missing from my brain. For a short time on Saturday I was away from Sotilde and doing a French oral test. After a successful completion, I rejoined her and it seems we watched Rin-ne/Kyoukai no Rinne to cool down. [Future note: We finished the entire anime last year but the series is still present in our lives by way of the manga :^).] Sunday was church as usual but Sotilde and her companion were brought in a pouch instead of the typical case. After the service, I lent my transparent blue mini to that friend who raised her kids'. I had tabbed up the mini and wrote out some little instructions about pausing and the invisible heart meter. It made me a little nervous lending it, although the friend in question was an adult so I was surely going to see my mini again. At home, Sotilde and company enjoyed lots of anime with me. On these days, Sotilde went from 183 to 188 ------- Whoo, that took awhile. I've been writing this all up for weeks! Well, I hope you all appreciate the long update. I could have posted it sooner but I thought I should just write it all out as I had planned and really break the silence. Not so much has changed since those days aside from there has been allot more reading and more of a daily schedule, thanks to bullet journaling and necessity. It's in my habit tracker to log and hopefully that lead to allot more updates. Sotilde has been running as usual and I don't have any plans to put her in limbo. She's become my comfort animal in a way (although I have a floppy, snoozy kitty I adore, too). I have taken to doing more psychologically nice things to her, such as giving her snacks even though it just increases the frequency of playing games with her, and sending her off to her palace. Her companions have changed allot and I'm gradually introducing more oddpets since I've stockpiled quite a bit. Speaking of her companions, here are some old photos of them: And one with Mister Floof: Mister Floof is growing old and his brilliant green eyes have faded to cataracts, but he will always be cherished. I see a loveliness others would have difficulty seeing in this aging, sickly, cranky creature. Even with all his sickly crankiness, I would truly not give him away for anything – and that's okay 'cause nobody else wants him, snort! It's a little like Sotilde since the bond I have with her makes her more valuable to me than her functionality, while other people would likely use her device to continually raise tamagotchis.
  2. I haven't picked up my ON in awhile but if your are talking about the Park that is under the TamaDepa, you can't marry any tamagotchis there. You can only marry tamas in the parks for the other towns or in the app.
  3. It's the dead battery screen as Nazo said. There's only so far you can go with low battery power and usually when a colour tama tells you the batteries are dying, they're dying and can't power the device properly.
  4. Sadly, it looks like Tama-Zone has been abandoned. I looked into that website a year or two ago and found that there were barely any recent posts. The posts that were there seemed to be new users trying to start something and most of them didn't accomplish anything. It really functions as an archive now since back 5-10 years ago, there was genuine interests in all things virtual pet and it flourished. It looks like users gradually moved on to other social media platforms since logging, the main forum activity, is highly social and allot of people are contented with an informal structure. Naturally, people moving onto other places means they take all of their other Vpet curiosity with them, making the discussions on Tama-Zone die even further. Judging from what I've seen there - and what has trickled onto TamaTalk - people moved to Tamagotchi Facebook groups and those are starting to break down. People are trying to make new forums to hopefully rekindle the old enthusiasm - someone even mistakenly tried to do that here - but really TamaTalk is the only active Tamagotchi forum. I reckon allot of that is due to the community collecting here because it always has and there is still interesting content. I'm telling you all this as another way to say that you are better off staying on TamaTalk because you wont get the same interaction on Tama-Zone - since its practically abandoned and any contributing there would be equivalent to screaming into a void. If you still want to contribute there anyway, you could PM Ra on instagram since he's still active there. Just in case there is any confusion, I'm perfectly fine with people going to Tama-Zone instead of TamaTalk and if Tama-Zone ever gets its community back, the more the merrier!
  5. I find it hilarious that the English versions after the originals boasted of a pause function, when actually nothing had changed. I actually have an English Angelgotchi - which I got in a used lot - and the clock set screen doesn't say anything special. I suppose the fact I have one might be something to boast about, but really I just see it as an Angelgotchi. Besides the icon differences Eggiweg has noted, the only other notable programming difference between the two is that the Japanese version has Sabotenshi/the cactus angel, while the English version has the Smiling Angel (which is pure nightmare fuel). Unfortunately, both characters have incredibly lazy programming since they have the same animation for every single function. Besides programming, American Tamagotchi Angels/English Angelgotchis actually have a different mold for the back half of the device. The holes for the screws in both battery cover and in the rest of the device are actually in a completely different place from the Japanese versions. What makes this so peculiar is that the previous English versions, the P1 and P2, did not have such an alteration so this was a change in the manufacturing (if the only other English model, the Tamagotchi Ocean/Oceangotchi remained unchanged, then the English Angelgotchi would have a truly unique mold). The direct impact of this is that if an English Angelgotchi's back cover is lost - which is the case with mine - then it cannot fully swap back covers with any other vintage since the screws are necessary for stability.
  6. Who else haaaasss the flu?

  7. Same, actually. It just seemed like such a random concept, since they're only related by pixels anyway. I heard from Tama-Palace that there was a rumor that there was going to be a Neon Genesis Evangelion Tamagotchi... which is downright insane. Much more insane than this because while a pixelated character that eats pellets and avoids ghosts could work within a Vpet framework - with some imagination - I can't fathom how it would work with mentally damaged teenagers who pilot mechas to fight mysterious biological machines for a living. Naturally, an adequate Evangelion Vpet would have to involve allot more than feeding, playing, and waste removal, even if it did evolve into personality types of the main characters (I haven't finished Evangelion although I did watch most of the series). I'll probably not be getting a Pac-man Tamagotchi even if the way the concept pans out is more sensible than it sounds. After getting the rereleased minis, I'd feel more inclined to seeing a fully themed version than one that is purposely truncated.
  8. 2! Oh my gosh, I created an inside joke XD Anybody know how to persuade penguins by endearment... or force?
  9. 57. Penguin-keeper has probably already set up a network of penguin monitors ... and maybe a way to alert the other mods! They're probably watching us as they speak... clasping their flippers menacingly and waiting for just the right moment to squawk their little hearts out and bring destruction!
  10. Apparently one of the features of the Pac-man Tamagotchi is that "PAC-MAN will save your Tamagotchi character from the ghosts and bugs". I'm assuming this is a new feature - since I read a nano log awhile back and it didn't mention any attacks - and it makes me think of the Morino (although since that is bug-themed, it's a little ironic). The Tamagotchi Wiki confirms this, interestingly enough. Funny how the "bugs" are actually glitched graphics; a nice touch. Didn't know the Meets had such bad glitches or that the On even had any. All I really heard was that the app could cause problems. Well, I guess I should go digging up info on the forum
  11. They do have to be different colour changes since if your tamagotchi is yellow, it wont change colour from more lemon pies since it is already yellow. Another thing to note is that it seems if the parent of your current genetics mix has a colour that is identical to a colour change effect, it will need to change into two different colours from its parent to unlock the salon. What happened to me is that my first On was actually a Mametchi who was turned orange by eating rice omelets/omurice. He married a Lovelitchi and the offspring turned pale yellow, the same colour that results from eating lemon pies. This colour was passed down that when I tried to unlock the salon, I had to change my tamas colour three times since I first "changed" it to yellow, then to orange, and finally white. While my tama was orange, it wouldn't unlock but only when I made her white. There is another possibility that perhaps they have to change two different colours in one day.
  12. I reckon practically forever as long as they don't get too many care mistakes - basically, leaving a bar empty after the attention light has turned off. Since the start of the connection models, tamagotchis only die due to neglect instead of having a predetermined lifespan, as was the case with the vintage models (the Tamagotchi Mini is an exception to this as it has a predetermined lifespan). The colour models have likely kept this trait since they pretty much have the same lifespan functions and the same mindset making them. I can personally attest to the connections being to live forever with good care, since I've kept two different connection models alive for over a year (one of them is still living with me and she was born on June 13th of 2017). Additionally, this trait is well known enough to have spawned the Long-Lived Oldies challenge, wherein people try to keep their tamagotchis alive for as long as possible and their tamas eventually evolve into seniors once the matchmaker is refused (hence the "oldie" part). After the first colour model, the senior stage has been removed so now an unmarried colour tamagotchi will stay the same character as it was in adulthood. That's quite a reasonable change ever since the gene mixing function was introduced, since imagine the disappointment in seeing a totally unique tama change into a shriveled apple of a senior! (I find the traditionally oldies look like shriveled apples.)
  13. 50!!!!!!!!! The queen of England would like to thank the keeper of penguins for letting her have a pleasant, tearless teatime.
  14. I suppose, in light of the circumstance, you could have written, "Penguin Keeper is gonna cut us off after 49, isn't [that penguin]". Although, I guess Penguin-keeper never claimed to be a penguin... otherwise the whole penguin-keeping business might take on some sinister undertones (like if there was someone called People-keeper who... had a collection of people). 45... and maybe some lucky someone will magically find some chocolate biscuits or toad in the hole if they don't post. (That last one's actually a perfectly normal main dish, although it sounds like it came out of Alice and Wonderland).
