First, is anybody here going to Otakuthon? Animé convention coming up this weekend - I'd love to arrange a meetup with some fellow collectors! I'll be cosplaying an Umbreon, and I can be found co-running the Fan Fiction and more importantly, Pokémon panels for the con. I'd love to see some of you guys irl! ^^
pkmn_master and robocoon, both of your packages, art included, were shipped off last week. Sorry it took me so long, especially for you, pm - I was just really obsessive about your comission because I really, really loved the way it came out and didn't want to add something for fear of ruining it. Also I had attachment issues. *loser* But don't worry, robo - your commission also turned out awesome. I've kind of been showing it off...^^; I like it that much.
yaoi_queen and fernchu, I have not forgotten either of you. I've just been rather busy. I am very sorry for the lateness, but your commissions should be ready soon.
warandromance, have you received the figures from the group buy/shipped them off? It's possible I missed your post where you said if anything happened (my bad), but some info would be much appreciated. ^^
And now for a random Pokémon sighting! :O
I was watching this tv show called A Baby Story, basically about a mother about to have a baby, and filming her during the pregnancy, at the hospital and bringing the baby home - very cute show on TCL.
Anyway, it was during the delivery, and the father was outside the delivery room with his two sons, who were running all over the place excited about the baby sister they were going to meet. And I'm watching the older boy, who was still just a kid, and gasped out loud when I saw him holding a Plusle plushie in one hand, and a matching Minun in the other! I ran to get my camera to take pictures, but by then I was too late, and the plushies didn't appear in the rest of the episode. :(
Still, it was kinda neat to see Pokémon on tv, and I was literally squealing in delight. XD
Also random - Saturday night when I was seeing The Dark Knight with my friends, my parents took my little brother to rent a movie. He chose, of all movies the Rise of Darkrai, and watched it without me! Grr, I'm gonna try to re-rent it, because I've heard so many good things about it, and all this talk about the newest movie has gotten me interested in this apparent trilogy.
EDIT: Re-rented Rise of Darkrai, and I can't say I was impressed. Everything seemed pretty random and a bit forced, and the logic was rather screwy. I really want to know what Darkrai was doing all his lifed until the day he met Alicia and between then and the time of the movie. Silly plot device. It was great to see that TR didn't spend the movie tormenting the twerps/trying to catch rarePokémon. Also, what was Alberto the baron of, exactly? o_O
And mini collection post: my Scyther collection is growing! It's my third favourite Pokémon, yet even so I have near nothing of it...but my collection's not huge or anything, but considering how little Scyther stuff there is and how I'm not interested in cards, I'm quite proud of it. The other Scyther zukan's supposed to come in soon, too. =o
The cards were originally mine, the Tomy and zukan are both from the comm, and the...Stadium figure, is it called? - was a birthday present from my friend Kelly in Australia. She's so awesome! Squee Scyther. ^^
