We finally managed to meet with Marsel for some BBQ and a couple of hot sauces. It didn’t go too well… We both endured Tabaso Habanero pretty well. Unfortunately, Dave’s Gourmet Scorpion Pepper Hot Sauce was too much: Marsel lasted for about a minute, I lasted for about twenty seconds more. After that we drank a lot of juice/milk, ate ice cream, some bread and bananas and it still burned a lot.
Probably my last battle with Jim. Date: July 13, 2015. I used a team which took me about two weeks to assemble, fully train and equip. It consists of some of my most favorite Pokemon. My list of favorite Pokemon has about 20 of them, so I had to think a more or less balanced team for a competitive fight. At least I had a choice. Days of studying Pokemon builds at Smogon and Serebii.
Recently I became interested in lock picking, and for that I blame YouTube. It turned out, picking locks is fun and challenging. It’s like solving a Rubik’s Cube. I’ve read Mike Gibson’s (DrBint) “Lock Picking: Detail Overkill” and watched a bunch of YouTube videos, so I know the basics of lock picking. Unfortunately, I don’t think there’s a way to get lock picks in my area, and I don’t have neither tools nor knowledge to make a decent pick myself.
A vector of Scolipede from this awesome picture by ConterMarune￼ (posted with his permission). Another half-assed vector from me, because I recently beat Pokemon Omega Ruby (yes, I am tardy) and played a lot with Scolipede in Pokemon Amie. Scolipede is such a cutie! Original image belongs to ConterMarune. Scolipede and other Pokemon belong to Nintendo and/or GameFreak (I don’t know how they manage IP between themselves). I only vectorized what has been created by them.
At the moment I have 3 competitive Pokemon battles on my record: 1 against Nyashka, my friend’s ex-boyfriend, and 2 against Jim, my friend. Somehow I manage to win them all despite not being into PvP in Pokemon because this is what competitive battles are to me:
An update to this picture. A rather badass one. This is hands down ZiPo’s best work so far and rightfully so: he spent almost an entire day worth working on this picture. You can see quite a few positive changes from the first revision of this OC. The cutie mark is a subject to change. The character doesn’t have the name, the story or talent yet, but despite that he’s not an adoptable.
Yup, that’s totally more important than a new pair of shoes. It’s almost summer anyway and rains are about to stop in a few days, so I can wait one more month. I was so excited! At first, that is. After all, who doesn’t like to play with a new gadget, even if it’s almost like the one I already own? But then I turned it on. I was able to choose English language for the menu, although a few elements of the interface are still in Russian, which kinda bugs me.
