IRC

Is anyone here interested in a community IRC-chat at all? I've had the channel name #pokemon registered on my home server (EsperNet) for, like, years, and it's totally defunct. I could maybe set up a java applet/easy-access webpage, for those who don't have mIRC or a similar program. Just wondering though. I have been thinking about this for a while, but in my deliberation as to whether or not I should open up the channel to this community, the AIM chat was founded... heheh. :x!

In other news, there are still some pokemon available in my FREEBIE POST... At very least, a Sneasel and a Meowth. The two confirmed trades so far are going to be mailed on MONDAY afternoon, by the way... :)

last call for kids

I really hate looking at these, which is weird because I used to be overly obsessed with them. Anyway, this is the last call if you want any of them, because if not, I'll just keep them or something.

Besides that, I'd really like to make a collection update, but I broke my mum's camera. My cellphone takes crappy pictures, as you can see, so taking a collection pic would ruin it.
That's it. Have a nice weekend!

Edit - I think I mentioned this in an earlier post that I deleted, but I have not sent out the packages from this post. I had a stomach flu and didn't want to send it to any of you, of course. Everything from that post is going out today.
RAI GROOMS!

Collection Update! :D



I have arrived home for the summer, and have reorganized some things, basically my plushies. But what is that big space for? Stay tuned? ;D

My BELL PLUSHIES and Sunyshore stuff under the cut, as well as closeups of the plushies and shelf. :3

I have returned from the Majestic Dawn prerelease! It was in a small out of the way place, so it wasn't extremely packed like some places I've been to, so it was nice and organized! My husband went with me so we got double the cards, PLUS we stayed for the booster draft. $100 of cards, whew! That should sate me for a while (I haven't been able to buy cards for some months).

Unfortunately, no Lv. X pulls for us. We never seem to get the good stuff when we go to these! If I remember, there were two Garchomp Lv. X pulled, and one each of Glaceon, Leafeon, and Porygon Z Lv. X.

Also don't be afraid to ask for closeups of specific cards!

I got the Get! and bell plush!

Last one, I promise.

But I'm very very happy at the moment. You see, since my second most recent post (which was deleted because I got all the info I needed), I've spent every hour searching for the Pachirisu Chou Get. I looked under every category possible, picking up little notes from the link featherclaw gave me.. and finally.. I came across this....

And here's something I finished today.

So yupp... I'm in a good mood right now. I think I'm going to Newbury Comics so I'll try to pick up some more Pokemans there. Okay now I'm rambling. Night!
