Illnesses Are No Bueno!

Last week I managed to come down with some super bad type of illness - fever, nausea, tiredness. I was out for 3 and a half days. Went to the doctor, became permanent, etc.
 
I picked up Pokemon White and therefore, stopped playing Dragon Quest VI. My backlog is never going to be finished! ;_;
 
 
On the subject of that, I LOVE Pokemon White. SO much. I hardcore played back in the day - on my shitty game boy pocket/color. It was a really pleasant memory for me. I played and beat Red, Yellow, and Blue and also got Silver and Gold when they came out but they just weren't...the same.
 
A couple of years back, I picked up Diamond and instantly got hooked again. And then I kept buying. Platinum. SoulSilver. And I stopped.
 
My husband has played all the ones we have picked up. He LOVES them. He has been excited for Black and White since it first got announced. Me? No interest. Zilch. He preordered them. I insisted I wouldn't want them. The day before, I got all excited. We picked up our preorders.
 
I haven't been able to put it down. I EVEN brought it to work, sat in my car during the rain and played it on my lunch break. I haven't done something like that in...years.
 
And then I noticed something. Evan hasn't been playing! :( He's just basically forgotten about it.
 
I have tried to pique his interest by offering incentives - if he beats Pokemon before the next game he wants comes out, he can get it. ...That's the end of this month. XD So this weekend is spring cleaning + Pokemon~! :D

Today I Love

- having real bud. :D It's been so long...there is no substitute <3
- having Pokemon White and Black and playing that with my husband. Thank you universe for giving me the perfect person!
- actually cleaning the house yesterday.
- seeing shit blooming while I'm driving around.
- crossing another game off my Vidja Game Wishlist - Final Fantasy V advance (complete with box in fantastic condition), guide, less than $30. :D (The game itself normally goes for $35+).

Didn't win the lottery -yet-, but I'm sure it'll happen.

March~

I haven't updated here in a bit. Valentine's Day was awesome. Then work was kicking my ass for a bit.

Good news is: I am permanent as of March 7th! *_* I am almost scared they are going to take it away though since I called out last week for car troubles (hooray alternator belts~!) and then left early yesterday and called in today. I am sick and it sucks so bad. :/

A couple of weekends ago, one of my roommates went to a convention for nerds of some sort in Tennessee. They played D&D and such..so I don't know the name of it, anyways; he came back with strep throat AND the flu. My husband got something that was a mix of his allergies + a cold. I don't know WHAT is up with me - I am taking meds like the day is long - which are shitty because they make me feel pretty out of it. If I don't take them though, my body just feels SO run down and sore. So really, I am picking the lesser of the two evils.

I have to brave it out  alone without my husband today. He's being so awesome - getting his allergy shots because of our cats ( ;_; ) and registering, getting books, etc, at college today. AND working his job on top of just recovering from sickness. I married a crazy awesome guy. <3

There will be MUCH Dragon Quest VI to be had today! I will probably make a post about it later!
