Tuesday 28th December

I decided a few days ago to keep a basic thought log until the 5th of January. That way I won’t be having problems trying to notify people what I’ve been up to via my Live Journal. I guess I better start with Christmas then.

‘Merry fucking Christmas’ was the first thing to pop into my head when I woke up. Well the second thing actually, first being that I wasn’t feeling too well. I still wasn’t feeling well from the week before. A combination of stomach bug and stress related illness. I woke up at 6am because being Saturday, Zoids Fuzors would have been on, except being Christmas Day, it wasn’t. Meh. I tried to eat some breakfast but couldn’t. Weet Bix, bread, nothing except water. It wasn’t until around 9am that I finally managed to eat something…a banana. Well its better than nothing I guess.

No Christmas Lunch nor tea, just something mundane for both. Mainly because I was in a bit of an off-putting mood. The short of it being that I didn’t find my Santa Sack until after 7pm, and that caused a bit of tension. ‘Gee I didn’t get anything this year. Much like last year…’ being my train of though and mum’s was didn’t I like what I got. Meh. I did watch National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, I liked it a lot.

Boxing day.
Hopefully we would have had a belated Christmas Lunch. Nope. Nothing much in the newspapers either. Unlike the previous years we didn’t go to the movies. Mainly because of an absence of Lord of the Rings films. Boxing Bay is an Australian public holiday, its when the new movies are released and when the after Christmas sales start. My grand dad says its called Boxing Day because that’s when you pack up your unwanted presents so you can return them.

Since Boxing Day
Not much has happened. Though today we picked up Zelda: Wind Waker from Target along with 4 Team Rocket Returns booster packs (2 for me and 2 for my brother). I managed to get a Togetic which is handy because my brother got a Jessie theme deck for Christmas. That had Dark (named) Pokemon as its heavy hitters and Togetic can’t be hurt by said Pokemon. I also got a Dark Crobat, which is pretty decent. Once I’ve fine tuned my deck I will post the contents. Its based around the Wish Maker theme deck and utilizes Jirachi and Metagross. Currently I have a Togepi and metal energy from Neo Genesis. I hope to be able to get EX-series versions of those cards to have a modified compatible deck. That way I can use it in any tourney without having to change some cards.

I also picked up the latest issue of White Dwarf because Ogre Kingdoms is released soon. Ogre Kingdoms looks to be a fun army to play, Shrek they ain’t. *nod nod* Very much based around eating stuff. What would you expect from a race that worships the Great Maw? I also found my Inquisitor living rulebook, so that’s a good thing. I plan on returning to the local wargaming club next year because I haven’t been down in ages. Once my Centerlink crap is sorted, then I may start playing Ogre Kingdoms. But I still have to finish painting my Alpha Legion army. I wonder if my paints are dry -_-

Thursday 30th December

I was going to update yesterday but today is good enough. Today will be a bit list intensive because I’m going to list my current deck for the Pokémon TCG and a 1000 point Alpha Legion list for Warhammer 40K. Lets start things with the card list.

1x Linoone (EX: Latios Starter Deck)
2x Zigzagoon (EX: Latios Starter Deck)
1x Team Aqua’s Sealeo (EX: Team Magma Vs Team Aqua)*
1x Team Aqua’s Spheal (EX: Team Magma Vs Team Aqua)*
1x Jirachi (EX: Hidden Legends, Holofoil)*
1x Starmie (EX: Hidden Legends)
2x Staryu (EX: Hidden Legends)*
1x Tropius (EX: Hidden Legends)
1x Huntail (EX: Hidden Legends)*
2x Clamperl (EX: Hidden Legends)*
1x Metagross (EX: Hidden Legends)*
1x Metang (EX: Hidden Legends, 21/101)*
1x Metang (EX: Hidden Legends, 43/101)
3x Beldum (EX: Hidden Legends, 54/101)
1x Masquerain (EX: Hidden Legends)
1x Surskit (EX: Hidden Legends, 76/101)
1x Surskit (POP Booster, 14/17)*
1x Qwilfish (EX: Team Rocket Returns)*
1x Togetic (EX: Team Rocket Returns)
1x Togepi (EX: Hidden Legends, 78/101)
1x Togepi (Neo Genesis, 51/111)
1x Energy Search (EX: Latios Starter Deck)
1x Energy Search (EX: Latias Starter Deck)
1x Potion (EX: Latios Starter Deck)
1x Potion (EX: Latias Starter Deck)
1x Pokénav (EX: Ruby and Sapphire, 94/109)
1x Island Cave (EX: Hidden Legends, Holofoil)
2x Life Herb (EX: Hidden Legends)
1x Steven’s Advice (EX: Hidden Legends)
1x Rocket’s Admin (EX: Team Rocket Returns, Holofoil)
1x Metal Energy (Neo Genesis, 19/111, Holofoil)
2x Metal Energy (EX: Ruby and Sapphire, 94/109)
3x Grass Energy (Base)
9x Water Energy (EX: Ruby and Sapphire)
9x Psychic Energy (EX: Ruby and Sapphire)

That is the current deck I’m using. 26 Pokémon, 10 Trainer cards, 24 Energy cards. Some cards such as the Potions and the Energy Searches are the same card but from different sets. While others such as the Metang, Togepi and Surskits are different versions of the same Pokémon. Due to this I’ve put the card number next to the cards of which there are different versions. The POP Booster Surskit is a promoish Surskit that I got from attending the card game stuff at the local library. I plan on getting three Grass Energy (EX: Ruby and Sapphire version), another Metal Energy (EX: Ruby and Sapphire) and an EX set Togepi. That what I can have a modified compatible deck.

The deck is evolution intensive, I really need to get out evolved Pokémon to win. Beldum’s yelp for help (what my brother and I call the attack at least) allows me to search my deck for a basic pokémon. This is usually Jirachi because I can use it’s Make a Wish attack to evolve my pokémon. I search my deck for an evolution card and evolve a pokémon in play, Jirachi then takes 10 damage - though Metal Energy can allow Jirachi to ignore that damage. Metal Energy reduces damage done to Metal pokémon (which Jirachi is) by 10 (can reduce to 0 damage) so Jirachi will take no damage. ^___^ Linoone has some search power as well with its Seek Out attack. This allows me to search my deck for any two cards and put them into my hand before shuffling my deck.

But my favourite trick with the deck is to play Island Cave. Island Cave is a stadium card so it stays in play until another stadium card is played (Island Cave will then be discarded). Island Cave allows either player to remove any special conditions (Paralyze, poison, burn, asleep, confusion) from any Water, Fighting or Metal pokémon when they attatch an energy card to said pokémon. The pokémon marked with an * in the above list can take advantage of Island Cave. This card single handedly screwed my brother’s deck over because it relied on inflicting special conditions.

My hand is currently getting sore so I will discuss the above list and what its about later.

Friday 31st December

It’s New Years Eve and I have an idea of what I’m going to do to celebrate. First of we will be going down to the Workers Club early and leaving early because it does get crowded quick. Plus it takes for ever to get a meal. In Animal Crossing, stuff is happening from 11pm so stay up late for that before going to bed soon after midnight. Hopefully. I want to get up at 6am to see if Zoids Fuzors is still on. We currently haven’t got a TV guide plus today was the last day of Cheez TV. The Big Cheez (Cheez TV’s Saturday morning program) is currently showing Zoids Fuzors but I don’t know what will happen.

Cheez TV has been on from 1995 until this morning. It had shows such as Technoman, Pokémon, Digimon, Spiderman, Zoids and much, much more. Between each show was a segment hosted by Jade and Ryan. That had a wide range of content, from daytime soapie spoof (The Restless Cheez) to other things such as Crouching Tiger, Squating Peacock (no prizes to guess what that’s based on) to one that [Bad username: pointytilly] would like, a Doctor Who one. With other stuff such as Toy Testing Time, competitions and Billabong Bill. Overall I’m a bit saddened at the lost of Cheez TV. Hopefully the cartoons will still be aired (they need to finish Zoids Fuzors and Duel Masters dammit).

Sunday 2nd January

I was going to jot stuff down yesterday but got carried away with another project. The Big Cheez was on yesterday, comprised of the shows with the absence of the hosts. Fuzors has a blinding yellow Shadow Fox, and by blinding yellow I mean Team Tigers blinding yellow. I didn’t do anything at all on New Years Eve, I didn’t even stay up late. The TV guide mentions that Cheez TV will still be on. Wednesday SBS is showing Godzilla Vs Destroyah and Doctor Who is absent from ABC (replaced by tennis). I’m suffering withdrawal symptoms due to no internet. Come on library, open up sooooon.
