Chester, no

So I was lounging around this afternoon, when about an hour and a half ago I saw a Chikorita on the PokeGo radar. Naturally, I got right up to head out and catch it: Shoes, hat, jacket because it got chilly again. I was at the door to leave and told my dad, "I'll be back in a few, I'm just going to the end of the block and back." (This being effectively where the closest Pokestop is.)

Chester, of course, saw all of the signs that I was about to leave, and then heard me say a word that more-or-less rhymes with "walk", so that was the end of that plan.

A good three paragraphs of story under here, with mention of past animal imperilment (with a happy ending) )

And that's how what I thought was going to be a fifteen minute outing turned into an hour long walk. Thanks, Chester.

My evening

I started an incense in Pokemon Go just before I finished eating dinner, since I didn't have a whole lot to do tonight. I got my shoes on and out the door with about eighteen minutes left on the timer, just on time to catch my mom about to take Chester on a walk. I mentioned that I was planning to take a quick walk of my own, imagining getting home around the time my incense wore off, thinking of joining them for company.

Instead, Mom handed the leash off to me and went back inside X3 I don't actually care very much for playing PokeGo while walking Chester, since Chester is... not the best behaved dog on a leash (to put it mildly), but I figured it would be less than twenty minutes, just once around the local Pokestop and maybe up the hill a smidge and then back home.

Nope! I got to up the hill a smidge, and Chester was adamant about continuing all the way around the block. After making it all the way up the hill, across, and to the point where we were supposed to turn another corner and go back down the hill, Chester again insisted on prolonging the walk for an extra mini-block.

Me, upon getting home: Darnit, Chester, I wanted a short walk!
Chester: What is this "short" you speak of? I am a Dachshund; we only know long.

There's an Eevee nest somewhere in my area, but I'm too lazy to go and find it.

On the plus side, I have essentially located two other spawn points for rare and semi-rare Pokemon in my area, so that's nice.

I also intend to make some proper Pokemon GO icons, but that may take a while.

In not entirely unrelated news, here is the story of how my brother proposed to his girlfriend, and how she proposed back :D

Just caught a 530 Venusaur :DDD

I've been seeing rare and semi-rare Pokemon "in the area" for like a week now, and decided to pass up on them the past few times I saw them, because I figured they'd come around again. Well, the last one I passed up on was a Scyther, and when I saw that Venusaur silhouette today, I was like, No. No, I'm going for it.

And I caught that grumpy flower toad >:D First time I've seen a wild starter or evolution that wasn't a Squirtle (my own starter, incidentally), and I catch the sucker! Between this and snagging a Dratini last night, I am quite pleased :3

That said, it was humid as a frog's armpit out there, so even though I was walking for less than fifteen minutes, I still could use a shower :P

Argh, there's a frickin' Exeggcute in my neighborhood, but I don't have the energy to try and find it! Especially since the footprint thing isn't working [for me/anymore]. (Seriously, did the footprint thing just go away completely, or is it just my phone?) There was a Polywag when I got home from work, a Polywhirl last night, and an Exeggcutor and two Pikachu a few nights ago, none of which I've gotten.

On the plus side, I did manage to snag a cp527 Tentacruel on a bathroom break this morning, so that's cool. I'm currently at level twelve and have joined Team Mystic, because Articuno has always been my favorite of that trio. My workplace has three individual PokeStops, at least one of which I can reach from the employee break room, and downtown there's a huge swath of PokeStops in something like a three block radius. Like, over twenty huge swath. I'm also completely shameless about the fact that my GPS is a little faulty and registers me in slightly different places every few minutes or so while I'm relaxing in bed. Very useful for hatching eggs. Or, well, not that useful, but it makes up for that first day when it couldn't find the PokeStop I was standing right next to.


In 3D space news, my car has a fuel leak :/ I took it in about a month ago as soon as it began having trouble starting, but the mechanics couldn't find anything/reproduce the problem. In the time since then, the problem got a little worse, the owner of the shop suggested it was the fuel injectors acting up and that it would probably be fine as long as I just let the car sit in "on" for a minute or two before starting the engine, the problem got a lot worse, and on Friday afternoon I made an appointment to drop off the car on Monday. Friday saw the car eating up twice as much fuel as usual; today it used more like four times as much as usual, and there was a puddle in the parking place where I had been at work. Getting this fixed will definitely be cheaper in the long run, though I really wish we could've figured it out and fixed it when I brought it in the first time. Though at least they didn't charge me anything for that first appointment, since their testing device said nothing was wrong.

Anyway, the money from the Staff Art Table should help with that a bit. And hours are going to be picking up at work as well, since classes will be starting again soon, so that'll help, too.


And now I think it's food time, while I continue to rest my aching feet. More work tomorrow, and then the car goes into the shop.
