To be fair I don't just assume every single Pokemon game is good simply because it's Pokemon.

I kind of want to see. I know I need the information. I mostly just don't want to go. .-.
Honestly I found sites like The Knot, etc. more valuable; you could always go, see if there are vendors you're interested in, and then research them online, but you could also skip going to the expo entirely and just browse for well-reviewed vendors local to you.

Then again, freebies. Just don't feel compelled to go with a vendor just because they offer you free stuff or discounts or whatever.

Even thought it's when I abandoned the franchise, Pokemon Black and White did manage to impress me with how they were trying to shake up the formula.

I'm excited for Pokemon X and Y --guess they ran out of colors :/-- but I have to admit, it felt like we just got Black and White, and obviously, it hasn't been a year since Black 2 and White 2 have been released. Eh, whatever. It'll give me more of a reason to get a 3DS, aside from the 2 Marios and the Zelda and Starfox re-releases.

That is my only problem, they're making them faster than I can play them. I haven't even beaten Platinum before I got Black and White...

Sam, you have summed up how I feel about today so nicely.
I almost called in sick, but I need to save my precious few sick days for when I'm actually sick, and not just hating the world.
Stupid world.

Also: Pkemon. I only ever played Yellow, when it came out. Go me. Go Pikachu.

I suppose it is no surprise, though. They come out with a new Pokemon just about every year, even if it's just an update of the most relevant generation at the time.

I don't really think she's trying to be "funny"; probably she's being practical. Way more practical than me.

We are so slow on planning. We have yet to do things like pick a location. Or a date. Gonna be a long engagement~

So, wedding expos. What really happens at one? Is it basically just a lot of different vendors with booths trying to sell their company/services? I may be working this weekend (my work weeks begin on Saturdays, it's weird), so I don't even know if I can go to it or not, regardless of what I want to do.

Congrats on your new laptop! I entirely approve of this! Not that my approval means anything, of course. I have a Lenovo T61 now and had a different model back in college that lasted for 6 years (and only died because I doused it with an entire can of Kearns fruit nectar...). They're not the most powerful or the most pretty, but damn can they take a beating and keep chugging along. I never used a padded carrying case for either of mine and keep them on pretty much 24/7. Somehow they seem like they were made specifically not to die for pretty much forever.

Yeah, "Takes a beating and a half" was a big factor in this one. I'm not easy on my laptops; I HAMMER on my keys and basically always will (bad enough that my Dad had to get a collapsible rubber keypad for the desktop so I'd stop making so much noise), so any delicate keyboards will be broken within a few months, my laptop gets constantly moved and travelled with (Like, in a suitcase at LEAST twice a month, moved from one spot to another daily since I don't have a desk to keep it on), I have the lovely/bad habit of eating while at the computer though I try to keep my hands off til I've wiped off any residue, and I'm pretty hard on the my trackpoint when gaming. My old laptop was an IBM Thinkpad from the early 2000's- the predecessor to this one, I think, actually- and it ran just fine, except for its usb ports being just about shot. And, at last, its wireless card/driver stopped picking up most wi-fi and I had to concede defeat and get another.
