Seven Quick Takes Friday: Queen of Sparkles Edition


1) Current mood:


2) As always:


This is your weekly reminder that #FacebookIsTrash. Again, don’t believe me? Once again, I’ve been forced to stop sharing memes from one of the pages that I thought was relatively safe turned out to be more than a little racist and happy to ride the shlong of Tiger King. So again, I have to quit following and sharing memes from yet another page. This is becoming a routine now.

3) Thought for the Week: Pandemics don’t bring out the best or worst in people. They bring out the truth.

4) So I’ve been able to hop in on a number of Max Raid battles lately and I’ve discovered that they’re excellent sources of shiny Pokémon. Technically, these aren’t “my” shinies, as I’m not the one hosting the Battles but I’ll take them anyway. No, none of these are the vaunted ‘square’ shinies, but I love them anyway.
Current Max Raid shinies:
Gardevoir x 2
Charizard x 2
Ditto x 2
Mime Jr.
The Vibrava was the biggest surprise, as I’ve only been hunting for one since the days of Diamond and Pearl; I accidentally reset on a shiny Vibrava and swore I would do whatever it took to find it again. So that’s one almost decade long shiny hunt completed.

5) You’ve probably noticed that I haven’t been terribly chatty this week. There’s a damn good reason: I am stretched thin. Mentally, I’m utterly exhausted but physically I try to remain positive, which adds to the exhaustion. On top of that, we have people screaming that they want things opened up again, nevermind that I’d be in a fuckton of danger for catching COVID-19. The sheer shittiness of some people is enough to make me want to give up on humans, so I needed to take a break from everything. Cat videos make me feel better, so I hoped they helped you. Next week, I’m going to try and focus on what’s going on in Sword; expect some reports on Raid battles and updates on shiny hunts. Not the most exciting stuff, but it’s better than reality right now.

6) You can tell it’s April in Wisconsin. It’s freaking cold. With snow. WTAF?!

7) I found out that Lulu really isn’t fond of turkey. She loves chicken, duck, salmon, and tuna, but turkey is a solid ‘meh’ for her. Well, everyone has their likes and dislikes.

That’s all for today. Drop by next time for a little more scrambled eggs with brain farts. So until then, have a great weekend and stay safe! ❤

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.

    You have survived drama and trauma throughout you life, Silverwynde. You will make it thru this period 1 way or another. REsiliency is your trademark. 🙂
