Calling out especially to my foreign friends. If anyone has a copy of Pokemon Diamond or Pearl that's originally in French, Spanish, Italian, German, or Japanese, let me know. I've recently learned that trading specific Pokemon in these languages to an English cart will unlock Pokedex entries for them in those languages, and so I'd love to trade for them to round out my collection. Thanks :D

First, I apologize to Jen for seemingly mocking your accent. I couldn't help it; when you bust it out the way you do, I can't help but imitate it, and it's not to insult you, I promise <3

Second, if you have Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, you should pick up My Pokemon Ranch for the Wii. At $10, it's a cute little storage system for your game(s) (though you cannot use it to quickly transfer Pokemon from one DS cart to another). Jen and I have been greatly amused by it, and I've had some fun trying to fill it up.

In lieu (is that right?) of an 'actual' update, I'll just post about some thoughts going through my head right now. Some are related to what I've been up to since my drunken post, others discuss missives about the future, and some may be philosophical ramblings about the, present. Yes.

- It's amazing how much you realize you missed music-on-the-go when you have access to a PMP (portable music/media player) again. Too much love for ThousandSunny.

- Linux is rather neat. I really want to learn how to work it so that I can do everything - from LiveJournal to Illustrator - in Terminal*

- Pokemon Diamond in 32 days. I'll preorder (just for the stylus :P) after I get paid at the end of the month.

- LITTLE KNOWN FACT! I typoed (typo'd?) "paid" above as "payed" before fixing it. Ugh -_-

- Currently writing a paper, something I haven't done in...well, ever, as it's rather different from the steps I took for my senior thesis. It's coming along alright, but I also have about 3 other duties waiting for me in the lab, one of which I need to attend to early tomorrow (8:45-ish early z_z)

- Wii Sports rawks. I was still sore last night from boxing training for about 25 minutes Saturday morning (I also played with Tennis, Baseball, and Bowling; I'll get to Golf one day >_>)

- Is it July yet? Fie and foo.

- Nintendo, please to be giving us a date for SSBB and MP:Corruption. Oh, and announce Mario Kart Wii already.

- Shelving the moving-to-Cambridgeport idea, since it seems the very notion of a nicely-sized 1 BR costing under 1300/month is laughable. Never fear! We're going to use some money that we've saved up in the coming months to get some goodies from iKea and make our current place a lot more liveable, i.e., not squatted by college kids.

- I ♥ my wife very much :D

- OTHER LITTLE KNOWN FACT! I can't find ♥ in OpenOffice Writer (I had to "steal" the one "above" "from" Wikipedia). If anyone can show me how to make ♥s in OO, I'll give you a graham cracker (crust?) next time we meet.
