Today, I am "Disgusted", of Kingswinford. Jokes are all well and good on April Fools Day, but this perversion of Canadian culture as the butt of a joke - a joke - is simply beyond the pale. My maternal grandfather was Canadian born - a lumberjack as it happens, and he was ok. But then war was declared, and Sergeant Williamson fought on Juno beach as a Sherman tank commander.
Frankly he would be outraged if he were alive today. This is how the free world repays his service
I really try not to get too annoyed about this sort of thing. America's a big place with lots of English speakers, I get it. But seriously, finding out when and where to watch the XY anime in America is child's play. Trying to do the same here in the UK is a nightmare. Now this is more than half ITV's fault - apparently there's nowhere on their official site that will state when the anime will air, and at what time.

So I'm trying to finish Chapter Seven of The Long Walk, ready for an update once the Awards are announced. Yet again I find myself hitting the same brick wall I always seem to with battle sequences - I know how I want the battle to go, I can visualise the damn thing, but when I put finger to keyboard it just_doesn't_look_right. It lacks that spark, that edge that all good battles should have.
Sigh ... back to the tyranny of the screen again
There's something deeply, worryingly elvish about Valerie. Those eyes are almost as creepy as her Sylveon's. Battling her earlier I had a terrible urge to cloud her with a good 'ol iron horseshoe
"Up the airy mountain,
Down the rushy glen,
We daren't go a-training
For fear o' little pokémon"
"Now the Global Trade Station is back, let me see if the worldwide community of pokémaniacs will trade me a Skrelp" say I this morning. And, surprise, surprise, the only reasonable trade offer - Skrelp for Clauncher - is done by the time I catch a Clauncher.
This is nothing new, and the GTS has been a pit of horrible trade offers for time out of mind. I've seen some people commenting that Game Freak should have done something about it, and I'm not disagreeing with the sentiment
