Naw, Poke'mon's cool!


It was just overdone and the show sucked.


I remember being 10 and I had slept at my nana's the night before the show was to premier on CITV. I got up that morning at about 6am just to make sure I didn't miss it  ;D

Once i'd seen the show, that was it, I was off! Well, until age 11 1/2ish, when it became 'uncool'  ::)

But I had a few of the games and I was actually quite good, don'tcha know?  ;D

I went to TJ Maxx Home Goods the other day and bought some cool vases and a small chest to go on top of my kitchen cabinets.  Oh, and a framed mirror to replace the mirror in the guest bath.  You can get some really good deals at that place and the store were I live has tons of stuff and it is a very clean store (which makes me very happy).

So, I played it for a while and it felt kinda nice, you know, reminded me of when I was a little kid and I used to play on it 24/7  :)

Computer viruses. This started thanks to Toonami, they had this event back in September 2002 called Trapped in Hyperspace and the villain was an evil computer virus named Swayzak. I had a crush on him as a kid and I became obsessed with computer viruses in all media, ex. there was this episode of a PBS show I watched called Between the Lions where the library computer got a virus and that was one of my favorite episodes. I remember when our computer actually got a virus, I was waiting for Swayzak to show up and cried when I found out he wasn't real.
To a lesser extent, that same event also started a short obsession with hyperspace in sci-fi media like Star Wars.

I remember that I didn't like having my computer stuck with a virus, even though it went away most of the time. All I did with it was restart it, and then I could be fine. I didn't know what a virus was at the time, but I knew it could be fixed with something. Although, if a character like Swayzak would appear in my computer as a kid, I would most likely be terrified of him.

Wow, we think differently. I found Swayzak kinda sexy as a kid, though I swear it was the voice, if you listen closely you can hear an accent. If he'd appear now on my computer, I'd friggin' smash the screen yelling "GET THE EFF AWAY!"

But that means SWAYZAK WOULD BE GONE!!! *stomps on ground and throws things* WHY DOES NOBODY LIKE SWAYZAK-CHAN?!

Tattoos.  I don't know why but I've always wanted to get a tattoo but I've never known how much it costs or what I need to do to get one.  I love tattoos but my mother thinks that they're weird.  :)  But I got a very negative and rude response from my relative, a response that I won't get into here, and it's just made me more determined to get a tattoo.  :)

I'm obsessed with mine. More of a perfectionist. I rarely put it up cause if it looks bumpy lol and I have to have a perfect left part.


I've been losing my hair more like thinning hair and I was always obsessed with trying to make it look fuller but I can't so I will let it thin out.

@Ripley: I'm not exactly sure what TJ does to his eyebrows but they've always been extremely neat and groomed. Back in the day they were even more pronounced than they are now. (we always tease Taryll because he's been through more hair colors, hairstyles and eyebrow shapes than we can count, and TJ stayed consistent.)
https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/8f/7e/6b/8f7e6b1434cbf91e83d965e367cf01e8.jpg
TJ around 1996/1997.
I like all sorts of makeup too, but I live for dupes. I see no use in spending x-amount for a certain color or product when I can find a cheaper alternative and I mostly wear drugstore brands.Liek I said, I'm obsessed with ELF cosmetics (which I buy online and you always get a free gift with purchase.One of the free lipsticks I got is aan exact dupe fo MAC's Ruby Woo!)  The only thing I really spend out for is BH Cosmetics which is online but the most expensive thing there is a 21 dollar palette (which I want but it's sold out) . I have bills to pay so I'm a beauty on a budget. LOL.

Yes architecture is Sergio's second passion next to music.  Right now he's building houses in Brooklin Ontario and his office is in Vaughan.
http://gbssmag.com/2015/10/sergio-galli/

It was what he went to U of T for but he dropped out to join Platinum Blonde.  After Platinum Blonde broke up in 1989 he wanted to go back to school to finish his studies but the school rejected him because they thought that he would be a "distraction" to the other students.

I am in the middle of the damn dumbest argument right now.
A few times I've wanted to leave 3T, not because of the members themselves but some of the fans are outright nuts.
I have a group chat on Twitter, for me and some fellow fans to talk about 3T. The keyword today kids is "3T". So that includes the fellas, wives/partner, music, things pertaining to them.
One girl, whom I'll leave nameless came into the chat and instead of talking of the band, which it's designated for, she was obsessing over this guy Omer Bhatti. (some people says he's was jut MJ's friend, other says he's his "secret" son, I don't know) He's a singer and hangs with the Jackson kids, but our chat is for 3T. She'd flood us with pics of him and everything, which I don't mind her interest, but it was a 3T chat.
So now me and this gal arguing saying "I could say the same about you with TJ or Taryll or Taj"
But it's a GODDAMN 3T-SPECIFIC CHAT.
Now she on my neck because someone blabbed I have another chat and left her out. (Am I 11 again?) Again, that's a topic specific chat. Next week, Taryll is on a particular TV show and we're going o be watching and live tweeting it. About Taryll. JUST TARYLL. Not Omer.
And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
I swear on God, I never had this much trouble when I was all over Michael Jackson.
I have different sets of friends for different sets of interests. Lord. She needs to find more Omer fans if she wants to go on about him so hard.

Some people just like to invent drama. I wouldn't have been as offended by this gal as I had but I had gone out of my way, which I didn't have to but did out of the goodness of my heart, and had Taj say happy birthday to her on the air.And then shes mad at me for being on topic. I don't understand her lunacy, but I'm starting to distance myself from her now. I don't know if you can distance yourself from the people bothering you but if you ca try,it makes life easier. I guess because I call into the radio show regularly and the fellas kind of remember me, she may be a touch jealous. But I tell everyone the same thing. They're nice. they're patient. Dial up and talk to them if you want to. A few times she sat in and listened but as soon as someone said call in, she'd bolt, so I dunno what her game is. I'm over it.

For me it's a matter of simply saying how I feel.  I always feel a direct connection with Sergio but I've had it hidden from him simply because I don't want him to think that I belong in a lunatic asylum. 
But I did express to him on his business page that I like him a lot.  :) So I'm proud of myself for that.  :) But we'll just see what he says.

I have their Iconic 2 palette which is a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette for only 8 dollars instead of 52. I would have bought more today, but Ulta is closed because of the damn hurricane. I have to wait.
http://images.ulta.com/is/image/Ulta/2288594?id=35La11&fmt=jpg&fit=constrain,1&wid=260&hei=133&op_sharpen=1&resMode=bilin

There's a good 3-4 more palettes I want. Iconic Smokey, and some of their Chocolate Bar Pallates.
I found them by accident on YouTube right around the time they came to the USA, because it's a British brand, and I love it. And I get compliments when I wear the shadow all the time.

Stu Jeffries the Boom 97.3 morning guy posted a picture of himself on Facebook with a Good Rockin' Tonite coffee mug and he says "Waddaya think? Time for an anniversary show?"?
A lot of us said "Hell yeah!" I'm definitely getting behind the idea because it's long overdue.  I was just 16 when Stu decided that it should end and I just turned 41 last week.  So this would be a nostalgia trip for me and a lot of other people who are aged 40 or older.  :) :) :)

Computer viruses. This started thanks to Toonami, they had this event back in September 2002 called Trapped in Hyperspace and the villain was an evil computer virus named Swayzak. I had a crush on him as a kid and I became obsessed with computer viruses in all media, ex. there was this episode of a PBS show I watched called Between the Lions where the library computer got a virus and that was one of my favorite episodes. I remember when our computer actually got a virus, I was waiting for Swayzak to show up and cried when I found out he wasn't real.
To a lesser extent, that same event also started a short obsession with hyperspace in sci-fi media like Star Wars.

and then in 2005 it was shadow the hedgehog and karaoke (latter caused by chicken little and the wannabe scene)

Yup. I first ran out of room on the fridge so I had to get a bigger one. Then I ran out of room there, too.

Our house had a hallway going from the kitchen to the living room. Along one side are build-in cabinets (our pantry) and a blank wall on the other side. We put up three metal sheets and that is my magnet board.

I think it's a quite a bit of a consensus that the band shouldn't go on without Gord Downie in front and that trying to replace him would be next to impossible. ::) ::) ::)
Gord was one of a kind so why would they try and replace him?

It sort of overlaps the Wizard of Oz.

It starts when the Witch of the West dies but then they go back to when the two witches met in school. I don't want to spoil the story for you. You MUST go and see it-it is WELL worth it. But, I can guaranty, you will not look at the Wizard of Oz in the same way again.

What my sister told me, it was based on a bunch of books by the same name but the books were much darker than the play. She didn't like the books but loves the play.
