Somehow, events that have me in the sun and/or heat for more than about an hour always end with me dehydrated, no matter how well I worked to avoid that.

What this means is that I probably shouldn't have gone to the grad night party, because I was really not doing all that well after four hours of being stuck in the sun or, alternately, being crammed into a room that was never meant to hold nearly three hundred people. I was tired, I was cranky, I was nauseated, and I had a killer headache. But I went to the party anyway, because I'd put $20 toward it and there was supposed to be a Pokémon jumper house. (There was. It was Destiny Deoxys.) I only stayed for two hours, though, because I couldn't knock the feeling that I was constantly about to throw up. /:

Of course, now I'm at home, having slept for seven hours and lounged about for another three, and am wondering what the hell I'm going to do with myself. I've completely revamped my tumblr, complete with random not-poetry description (and more-accurate description describing exactly what I post that sounds disparaging but is absolutely true). What I should do is just suck it up and play more ME2, get the hell off of Horizon so that I can recruit me a justicar and an assassin, and do some loyalty missions so that maybe everybody doesn't die at the end.

If Garrus dies I'm so replaying the entire damn thing. ...of course, I was already planning on replaying the whole thing anyway, between wanting to do a tech run and a biotic run and playing as male!Shepard just so I can see if Kaiden is less boring when he's not trying to get in my pants. Plus I don't have all the ME2 DLC yet; mum's buying it for me as a graduation gift, but I probably won't get it until the end of the month. Which is totally cool, because at the rate I'm playing, I might not even have my first runthrough done before then. /:

I've learned that I can't slice potatoes properly! Oh well, they'll still taste bacony and delicious. I'm currently frying up some potatoes for some bacon and potato hash, and this marks the first time that I've 1) fried potatoes and 2) cooked bacon. I'm not expecting it to be particularly tasty, but still, it's bacon and potatoes. You can't really screw that up. (I would have made a bacon and potato frittata, which is admittedly easier to screw up than a hash, but big bro doesn't like eggs, so it's just a hash for us.)

I meant to work on my Frankenstein project today, and I didn't. I did figure out the very basic idea of what I'm going to do with it, though... maybe I'll start on it later. /: Also meant to read more Pride and Prejudice, which... also didn't happen. Oops! I don't really mind though. Because I spent the day playing Magician's Quest, and catching up on my blog for it. And also cooking. And also reading The Exiled Queen, which isn't the book I wanted to buy yesterday but is a good book nonetheless.

Anyway, yeah, blogging games. I don't know why I'm doing it, but right now I'm doing two: Pokémon Soul Silver and Magician's Quest. It's fun, even if it's kind of time consuming. Still, it's not as bad as a full-out screenshot LP!

And then I found out that the best Disney film ever was on, so that made today even better. And the hash didn't turn out too bad, either! Everything's rather crispy, but in a good way. I kind of wish I'd made more, though, haha.

So, rest of tonight: watch some film, take a shower, do some Frankenstein Abridged: The Graphic Novel. Maybe play more Soul Silver, too, since I haven't for a couple of days.

edit: And after everybody finished eating there was still enough for me to have seconds, hell yes! :D

They released the English named of the GenV starters! I don't even get Oshawott. I think Tepig is funny - it's a fire pig, but it's only tepid, haha! And then, there's Snivy. Snivy. Maybe instead of calling it Crowley I should call it Snape, yeah? (Just kidding - it's based on the snake from the Garden of Eden, of course I'm calling it Crowley.)

Totes resetting until I get a shiny Snivy, though - I don't dig shiny Janovy, but shiny Jalorda looks amazing. Here's hoping this grass starter will turn out less useless than my Bayleef! (Just kidding - sort of. I love you, Roosevelt, but you really are pretty useless.)

(I feel like I should edit this icon to make it :D instead of 8) but I'm not sure.)

Seriously, though, every time I think of these names I start giggling. They're so bad they're hilarious!

Swing club meeting went... interestingly. Less than half the people who signed up actually showed up, but we figure that might change in a couple of weeks; additionally, I might end up with a partner I actually want to dance with. Senior!Ben is nice and all, but he's like a million inches taller than me and he's a bit awkward - I feel bad for saying that, since he'll probably get better once he learns, but in the meantime it's just awkward. I'd like to dance with Pinky, since she knows what she's doing and I actually know her (unlike senior!Ben, who I'm honestly only vague acquaintances with), but we'll see how things work out.

I get to write a sestina for AP English! Naturally, my teacher being who she is, everybody had to bring in a box of six words, and for our sestinas we had to pick somebody else's box. I ended up with Pinky's, haha. I think I'm going to try writing a space opera with them 0: I mean, I've got ability, karma, happiness, jealousy, revenge, and enthusiasm to work with; I think I can pull a space opera out of that. I also have to write a villanelle, but I don't know what I want to write it about just yet. (I also have to write an ode, which I already started: Ode to the Strange Red Lamp. Basically, Lelouch Lamperouge. I started it kind of weird, though, like it doesn't know if it's an ode or an elegy. I'll figure it out eventually, I guess.)

I also got back into Neopets after the past couple of months not playing it OTL I think I can make back all the np I spent on codestones by just selling them back; plus I got an extra one opening up the shop wizard so I could price them properly, so that might help too. I will paint Kurounou ghost-coloured, damn it!

GS meeting later tonight; I think I'll just chill for the hour until I have to get ready. Maybe I'll mess around with the starters in Emerald version and start a new game, since I've never actually played Emerald before.

Watching my cats grooming each other. They do so violently, it's awesome.

Been trying to get back into Metroid lately; it's not really working, but meh. I think I may have gotten Kristen interested, which would be cool if it's true. I guess I'm just not in a real "gaming" kind of mood. I haven't been for a while, though, and that's what's bugging me. After an entire year of not gaming all that much (thank you, AP, I totally wanted that) have I just fallen out of the habit of it? (It might help if I could find my PS2 controller... oops. Otherwise all I can do is suck at Metroid Prime - and I do mean suck, because I'm absolutely terrible at it.)

I think maybe the heat's just got me in a weird mood right now.

Also, I heard the actual Green Day version of Last of the American Girls on the radio a little while ago, and... ugh. The musical version is infinitely better.

Ice water and then art; maybe trying an upper-body shot will make me feel better. (Or I might just get frustrated... that's also a possibility.)

edit: OH OH OH ALSO. Shinx!egg. I don't even know.

So earlier I was writing up a post about how my internet was borked because the cable was broken and I suspected something was wrong with the laptop as well. Mum surprised me by, after I told her we needed a new ethernet cable or no internet for anyone, coming out of her room five minutes later ready to go out and buy a new ethernet cable. (She's addicted to Vampire Wars on Facebook; I think that's the only reason she took this seriously.) There wasn't anything wrong with the computer, either; just a bit of plastic from the old ethernet cable stuck in the port. I shook it out and all was well, and I also don't have to worry about losing my internet connection at random intervals by the ethernet cable being knocked loose, so I can play MMOs again if I want to.

I spent the last hour or so reading a blog about a teacher eating school lunch every day and, well, blogging about it, in order to raise awareness about how school lunch sucks. I can't really disagree with her, and it really doesn't get better; the quality might go up a little when you hit junior high/high school, at least where I live (although really that just means that they basically only sell the food that they know the students will eat), but you pay for it with higher prices. Personally, when I eat lunch at school I mostly eat an assload of carbs, and I can easily spend just $5 on a slice of pizza, a bagel, tater tots, and a teeny tiny little bottle of water. I usually don't eat all that at once, though; it's expensive and there are other things I'd rather spend my money on, so most of the time I just don't eat at lunch at all.

In less depressing news, more SoulSilver talk! I'm in Azalea Town now, finished the Slowpoke Well this morning. Earlier I tried leaving for the forest so I could train a bit, but I got held up by my rival. His starter was level eighteen... I feel like I'm slacking a little. ): He only managed to KO one of my team, though (his Quilava offed my Poliwag) so it wasn't all that bad.

...well, except for the part where my Mareep evolved at the end! :C I don't like Flaaffy or Ampharos; I just don't like the way they look. I want my little lightning sheep to be my little lightning sheep forever ): But I was trying to plug in the iPod charger one-handed at an awkward angle, so he evolved before I could cancel it. ): So I shut off the game without saving, lol. I'll just fight Luke again; maybe this time his stupid fire-type won't KO my only water-type. |:

Fell asleep like right after the booth sales Saturday. Then I got to do booth sales on Sunday, too. x: We had four boxes left that we could not sell for the last half hour. Grrr. You can meet interesting people there, though! Like, on Saturday we saw this guy with a Mega Man wallet and another guy with a Star Trek Exhibition shirt. (I want to see the Star Trek Exhibition at the Tech Museum like burning, omg.) And on Sunday there was a GameStop employee who noticed I had a pokéwalker.

Which brings me to the main reason for this post: Merriam's Adventures in Kanto! :D Merriam is currently training around Violet City before she goes to wipe the floor with challenge Faulkner. She's trying to get her whole party up to at least level 10, and also find the Name Rater so she can rename the pokémon she catches out on strolls, like the Sentret she caught this morning. But right now, she just needs to level up SNAAAAKE!!, Weed-chan, and Bella Swan a few more levels! And of course Roosevelt and Pigeonning are more than fine, at level 13 and 12, respectively.

Merriam ran into that jerk Luke earlier this morning too, at the Sprout Tower. As if it weren't bad enough that he kept shoving her away at the Elm Research Lab, and then stole a freaking Cyndaquil which he then completely humiliated himself battled her with, no, he had to keep insulting her and generally being an asshat, too. She even got accused of his crime! (Fortunately Ethan could testify to her innocence in the matter.) But then she took Roosevelt for a pleasant stroll, so she's feeling less ragey now. ...well, not quite. There was that Nidoran♀ she ran into four times on said stroll that kept running away |:< Not happy about that at all. She really wants a Nidoran♀.

And Alexis's adventures in Kanto have begun~

I almost restarted because I got a girl starter. |: I wanted to call it Roosevelt |:< But Chika will just have to do I guess. I mean, she already kicked Alex's Charmander's ass, and I didn't even have to use my Potion! So I guess this is a good start. (:

And then Madame couldn't get the projector for tomorrow and pushed the due date back to Tuesday. We get time to work in class tomorrow on said project, so I didn't actually have to stay after school for filming and also don't have to spend all night editing. Instead, I get to do APUSH IDs!

Went out and got Pikachu-coloured Pichus for... everyone. (Actually just Kristen, Ben, and Marc. Um, and me.) Then got to go to two different tire places and, in the interim, listen to my brother bitch about how dad should just let him buy the 225s, they're cheaper and just as good, and the 215s he's insisting on are discontinued, meaning no one has them, and... on and on and on.

Also I was really really hungry so I made a box of mac and cheese and ate the whole thing. I put a little too much milk in it, but I was really really hungry so it was still good.

I think I'm going to do my trig homework now. I'd almost say that I feel just like Bella Swan! but she sucks ass at trig and I'm amazing at it, so no, I really don't feel like Bella Swan.

Also, I love my Skullcrushers. They're the best headphones I've ever owned. I love them so much.

FLYING VOLDIE SNAKE MAN IS FINISHED. He looks really cool ;___; Hopefully I'll get him back tomorrow, so that I don't have to bug Mr Engle about it after the new term starts. That would be annoying. I mean, I already have to go back once May starts in order to get the art he's holding hostage for the district art show. (Yeah, yeah, I know I should be happy that he thinks my art is good enough to go on display at the district office. I'd just... like to have it back. |: The last time I had art go to the district office, I never got to see it again because someone threw it in the trash.)

I got 93% on my English "final" (it's more of a midterm, but it's at the end of the term, but it's only on the IDs and... yeah, it's confusing). I've been trying not to volunteer that information, as I don't want to be seen as bragging. Then people ask, won't take no for an answer, and get pissed off when I tell them what I got. It's like, dude, you asked.

I'm probably going to pre-order Dante's Inferno today; I didn't get to do it yesterday because I had to go to dad's, and anyway I took some Benadryl when I got home and slept for like half the evening. ): BBQ chicken and mac'n'cheese was totes worth it, though.

HeartGold and SoulSilver are getting packaged with the Pokéwalker! So super excited. I've been wanting a pedometer. My iPod is supposed to function as one but I can't get it to work. So instead I'll have a Tamagotchi/pedometer cross! :D /excited

Hi Wizard 101 addiction. |: Hopefully you'll last longer than my zOMG addiction, or my SMT:Imagine Online addiction (though, to be fair, that last one would probably have lasted longer if it hadn't started literally three days before my computer died last winter). Hopefully you're not a gateway drug to something like WoW, because I do not have time for WoW.

Sketched, lined, and cleaned up near the entire scene for my art project. The background is still just a sketch so far, but I lined everything else and I started coloring not!Vaporeon. It's a funny scene... at least, I think so. I mean, not!Celebi is hovering in the corner looking decidedly Not Amused, not!Vaporeon is just stepping out of its pond looking very "Oh snap!", and not!Snorlax actually it looks rather a lot like Snorlax is asleep on not!Celebi's flower garden.

Need to finish APUSH homework tonight. Of course, mum is also tasking me with mopping the kitchen floor omg as soon as I get home which... well, she stayed home today, so that's going to be a problem. I generally don't like doing cleaning-type things when mum's around, because they generally result in "Oh, now was that so bad?" type statements and it makes me want to punch something. B|

I... think there was going to be more, here, but then I totally forgot what I was going to add. ):
