  1. ^ It's been way too rainy. > Likes rain, but ENOUGH ALREADY! XD V Likes to put stickers on his/her Tamagotchi?
  2. Press B and C together. Make the contrast go down with A, and back up with B. Press C to exit.
  3. Make sure they're an adult and you haven't paused them too much. Remember, Tamagotchis must be exactly 48 hours old before they can use the Dating Channel.
  4. I know how you feel. I struggle with the same thing. I'm always embarrased to show others my Tamagotchi, or even ask for one (Mom is pretty cool about it, though). My stepdad and she are always telling me how lots of intelligent, successful adults collect toys, play World of Warcraft, ECT., but I still am afraid that others may think I'm juvenile. As for your friends, you may have to look closely at exactly why you're still their friend. It seems you may not have a lot in common.
  5. Hmm... I got mine yesterday, and I have to say that I really do enjoy it, so far.
  6. ^ Lives in a beautiful country (not so weird). > Is up late. V Has a cool avatar?
  7. Part I: INTRODUCTION Over the past few years, I've never had much of a problem hiding Tamagotchis from teachers, principals, etcetera, but from vindictive cousins and their friends. I'll explain: While living in Kissimmee, Florida, I had two younger cousins that could be little angles, but also little demons. Basically, they lacked discipline, and love to torture me sometimes with their rough-housing and taunts. For some reason, they hated Tamagotchis with a passion, and thought I was "geeky" and even dumb for purchasing one. They especially loved to go into depth about how "gay" they thought they were. Many times, they threatened to steal my Tamagotchi and reset it or break it altogether. If that were to happen, I couldn't have gotten one for a long time, seeing that my father was working two waiting jobs and fifteen bucks was still considered moderately expensive. Fueled by silly paranoia, horrible boredom, and excitement (it was height of the hurricane season, so everyone was hyped-up anyway), one of my best friends and I got together, with Red Bull energy drinks in hand, to lay out all sorts of blueprints for odd, overly-complex "TamaBunkers" for my Tamagotchi. We even came up with actual steps for a "Tamagotchi Evacuation Plan," in case my little virtual pet was threatened and we needed to grab it and go. First, Joy and I constructed a small area in a pile of blankets that was always there in my bedroom (there were six of us in all, so I shared the room with my dad; he was a clutterbug, so mess didn't bother him). We used two blankets, a quilt, some string, four sturdy books, and a clock radio left over from Christmas. After a few hours of tweaking and perfecting, Joy and I had contructed a virtually indestructable TamaBunker. The hiding spot was perfectly disguised, blending into the whole room. Inside, there was a special holder for my Tamagotchi, the manual that came with it, a list of shop codes, and even an extra battery. It was like Anne Frank's Secret Annex in there. The clock radio served as an alarm that would go off if the Tamagotchi was picked up, made possible by tying a translucent string around the Tamagotchi's keyring and the other end around the clock radio's switch. Swollen with pride and giggles, we conducted several tests and drills, with silly scenarios. Joy even came up with a list of simpler hiding spots in her bedroom right around the path from my house. So, as a result of many bored, feverish nights spent plotting and engineering on a tiny scale, I have created this list of places to hide and not to hide a Tamagotchi for those extremely protective people with too much time on their hands, as I was. Part II: BASIC LOCATIONS 1. A very simple hiding spot would be at the bottom of a dry, fairly dustless vase of fake flowers. 2. Hiding a Tamagotchi in the bottom of a basket filled with potpourri is also a nice technique (it might even smell nice, too!). 3. If you have a bookshelf, pull a few books out, place your Tamagotchi in the back of the shelf, then carefully replace the books so they go back far enough to just touch your Tamagotchi. Be careful not to crush your toy, nor make the hiding spot obvious. Or, trick "hidden treasure" books can be bought. The trick books look like real books, but have a hollowed out space inside for jewelry, money, ECT.. 4. If you have a window with blinds and curtains that are not see-through, simply take the blindpull, tie it around your Tamagotchi's keyring, and suspend it behind the curtains, toward the top of the curtain rod. Even is someone were to look in the window, it might not occur to them to search that deeply. 5. Hiding a Tamagotchi in your underwear/bra drawer is also effective. 6. While you may think the opposite, spaces behind large electronic devices, such as TVs and stereos, make great hiding places. Just make sure your Tamagotchi doesn't overheat and you do the dusting! Part III: PLACES NOT TO HIDE YOUR TAMAGOTCHI 1. Toilet tank. 2. Fish tank. 3. Hamster cage. 4. Fridge. 5. Pantry. 6. Anywhere outdoors. 7. Couch cushions. 8. Behind washer/dryer 9. In powdered substances such as flour or laundry detergent. 10. Topside of a ceiling fan blade. 11. Kitty-Condo/doghouse. Part IV: CONCLUSION In closing, I certainly hope you have found my little list useful. Please feel free to add your own, or leave a comment or two. Thanks for reading.
  8. Thanks for the tip. I find the robber very, very annoying.
  9. Yes, Disney has a knack at screwing up wonderful books by making movies out of them and butchering the scripts.
  10. Hmm, I sort of disagree. The whole "i" thing is pretty dumb, and Apple's products are pretty much rip-offs (people are paying for a name, not a product), and dragging Tamagotchis into it would wreck Bandai, and/or turn the whole thing into one big, corporate network. At the same time, Tamagotchis would become worse and worse and eventually be made in China and would be loaded up with lead paint and would break easily. On the other hand, I do like the idea of a Tamagotchi on a slighty-more-adultish (not seventeen-year-oldish) PDA. It would be practical and fun at the same time. For example, your little Tamagotchi character could just play at the bottom of the screen while you set up your schedule, enter people in your electronic phone book, ECT.. Plus, a fully-functional PDA could contain lots of memory, which can hold both files and all sorts of Tamagotchi characters and items. Adding a cellphone feature would be complicated and expensive, but that's still worth some thought.
  11. Eh, I am actually guilty of that. I was living with a bunch of noisy, no-hope rednecks, and a dad that never listened, though. Yes, people can take them a bit too seriously. Crying and considering a Tamagotchi your best friend is a bit much. I get what you mean, though, because I wanted one for a long time, and finally got it. I would talk to it sometimes, though, because it was actually a good listener, ha ha.
  12. Androtchi as a cross-stitch pattern would be sweet.
  13. I was feeding my little Franz the other day while doing some cross-stitching (where you make little x's into one big picture, sort of like this), and I realized that the pixelated images on a Tamagotchi would be great for patterns or motifs. Same with needlepoint (where you use plastic canvas, like one of those tissue box covers). Good idea, or what?
  14. It all depends on what someone's definition of "cool" is. I think they are pretty cool, but moderation is the key. Having a childish obsession with them gives people the wrong impression. However, playing with it a bit every day or so, not forgetting to feed it, ECT., is alright.
