Two extra bits

1) I'm not loving the HGSS interface. The menu drives me bonkers, the pokedex...WTF is with that layout?!, the overhaul to the PC system is frustrating me (nice to show off which moves the pogey has without needing the entire summary, but that's the only nice bit about it; the little quirks, such as the move function, is making me avoid the PC as much as possible), the backpack is infuriating, the forced use of the dual screen to view a party member's data...
Come on, not much was needed to improve with DPPt. At all. Why did they think they needed to change it this way? It's bullshit and rather taxing.
AND YOU CAN'T DELETE NUMBERS?! Why didn't anyone SAY THAT BEFORE?! I would never have registered Joey's and Ralph's if I had known I couldn't get rid of them.
2) Made a traipse over to the college on Wednesday, and the magazine office had a surprise visitor: our Director of Student Life dropped by and the first thing she said was, "I hear you guys have those walker things."
There was only one thing she could have been talking about.
Her son had just gotten HGSS and she knew he'd be asking her all types of questions on how to work the pokéball-shaped toy that came with it. Batman!Dan had left, Sookie had gone to class, Gaeta was on the clock and out the door (being caught by the Director hanging out in Serpentine would have been...bad, and it was VERY good luck he was already stepping out), which left....only me? How'd that happen?
So I pretty much showed her (once again reenforcing my recognition that I cannot teach properly) how to use the PokéWalker: relatively flat surface, close proximity, one button to push.
When Andrew returned, it turns out that she had asked him about it, and he had pointed her in our direction. He hadn't expected her to ZOOM over, and knew Gaeta was in there, kinda sweated, but everything turned out all right.
And the anecdote: with a bunch of us playing, Chun...obtained the game that day just to be included. XD He doesn't play (but he did have various versions before for the sake of the now-ex-girlfriend). And he was all, "I'm level ten!" before leaving Cherrygrove. I asked him if he had delivered the egg yet, and he said no, and I told him...go do that, there's more grass to go play in on the way. He "awwwww...."ed like a kid...and stuck it out outside of Cherrygrove. Bastard.
