Seven Quick Takes Friday: It’s Seriously Late Edition


1) Current mood:

I feel attacked by this relatable content.

2) As always:


This is your weekly reminder that #FacebookIsTrash. It’s not even worth the memes. I do not kid.

3) Okay, whoever came up with the idea of Wonder Box on Pokémon Home is a freaking genius. I’m not kidding. I’ve been using the Wonder Box for the last few days and I’ve gotten some great trades: breeding scraps with three to five IVs, Version exclusives, and yesterday, I got a 6IV shiny Rattata. Why didn’t we have this sort of thing years ago? Because it’s awesome and it makes up for the shitshow that is known as the GTS.

4) Prime and I watched Bumblebee and Downsizing on Hulu this week. It was my fifteenth viewing of Bumblebee and my first for Downsizing. Okay, you expect Downsizing to be a comedy but it’s not; that movie was a serious downer. I did enjoy the environmental message and the Vietnamese dissident was pretty much my favorite character in the entire film–I had no idea that there are eight different kinds of fucks here in the States–but the story itself was rather soul crushing. It’s not a bad film, but it’s not all cheerful and happy, either, which I was expecting. So yeah, you’ve been warned.

5) Prime and I hit Meijer to get Lulu some kitty food and I grabbed a bag of strawberry bark, as it was on clearance. I’ve had a couple of pieces and yeah, the stuff is great. But I do love strawberry and chocolate anything. Hopefully, Lulu will enjoy her dinner; the Rachel Ray’s Nutrish wet food was on clearance as well and Prime cleared them out.

6) I just started my adventure on Shield. No, I don’t have any Badges yet, but I’ve been taking in a lot of Max Raid battles in the Wild Area. The one star Raids are easy, most of the time. Then, you have the ones with Toxel that end up with my Pokémon getting fainted out or my target popping out of the Ball. Not awesome. Of course, the five star Raids are worse.

7) We had windchills in the negative numbers earlier this week. Tomorrow, it’s going to be close to forty degrees. But no, that anthropogenic climate change thing is all BS. Of course it fucking is. 🙄

That’s all for now. Drop by again for more mixed messages and media that will make your head spin. So until next week, see you around!

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
