Omake comic for this week’s episode!
We also have a poster featuring Allister via PASH magazine:
They took in some people from a clothing store next door too. The employees could have gone home but couldn’t bring themselves to kick the customers out into the snow because some of them had an impossible three hours drive home and would have gotten stuck on the road in their cars so the employees and their boss opted to stay.
The woman who reported on the incident trekked alone through piles of snow on foot. She couldn’t bring a cameraman so everything was filmed with a small handheld camera.
They ate food from the cafeteria (meatballs of course), watched a Christmas show and football before getting to pick any bed they wanted in the store. In the morning they were served cinnamon buns and coffee/tea.
Just a cute little story to brighten your day.

The duality of “If you even imply that being aro or ace condemns someone to a sad and lonely life I will fucking fight you”
“being aro and ace is the most isolating thing I will ever experience”
[image description: tags by @arowitharrows:
“The thing is that when other people imply that being aro and ace must condemn someone to a sad and lonely life, they are seeing aromanticism and asexuality as the root of the problem.
They think that not having that ‘special someone’ in your life means it’s not worth living.
they’re showing pity for something they think you’re missing out on
When I talk about feelings of isolation caused by being aroace‚ I’m talking about the way our (western) society is structured, about how people drift off into their bubble, about how the older you get the less and less time everyone has in their day, and how your role as a friend automatically becomes lesser compared to other relationships.
I’m thinking about how certain emotional and physical connections are suddenly reserved for romantic relationships.
About the conversations I can’t really participate in and I sit there awkwardly knowing they find it weird that I’m not opening up.
I’m thinking about all the times I get hit out of nowhere with a throwaway line, reminding me that people think there’s something wrong with your soul if you don’t love like they do.
That they think a life like yours isn’t worth living. That’s the kind of isolation I’m thinking about.
Not me missing out on having a romantic partner.
okay done now sorry I’m feeling gloomy”
It’s about the importance of microchipping your pet.
More specifically, it’s about the importance of registering that microchip.
When I got my new cat’s records from the rescue, I noticed a line near the bottom listing his microchip number. It was followed by a reminder to register the chip with the appropriate provider, but there are so many companies that make pet microchips, and it didn’t tell me which one. Was it 24PetWatch? PetLink? HomeAgain?
It struck me as odd that they would have chipped a cat and not registered it. In my experience, rescues that chip pets before adoption will register the chip in their own name; if the pet is lost and found, the finder will contact the rescue, and the rescue will contact the owner.
So I called them today to ask who the chip was with, so I could get it set up. The woman I spoke to said I would have to find the answer myself, because they didn’t know which company it was with. They didn’t chip him.
My cat was surrendered to the shelter with an unregistered microchip.
I don’t know why it wasn’t registered and I never will. Maybe the owners thought they didn’t need to do anything beyond having the vet put the magic microchip in his shoulder. Maybe they knew there was something they had to do, but they put off doing it. Maybe they didn’t know how.
He could’ve had the most loving family in the world, but because they didn’t register his microchip, he’ll never see them again.
It’s a moot point now. His microchip is registered to me. Anyone who scans it will find my name, my address, my phone number; if he somehow gets lost and is scanned, someone will contact me saying they found my cat.
I wasn’t the one who had it placed there, but that microchip now stands as a physical mark of the bond between us. I have written my name on the little metal rice-grain between his shoulder blades; he is mine. I’ve committed to being his home until his time on this earth is through.
Please, do the same for the pets in your life.
I would like to wish everyone an uneventful new year
It’s only November and this is already getting notes again, you guys are really manifesting this energy early for the new year
We would like to live in Less Interesting Times please
Instead of her famous Garchomp, Cynthia’s milotic actually gave me the most problem because IT WOULDN’T STOP USING RECOVER. I am pretty sure it had used recover for more than 15 times because my pp freaking ran out,but at the same time it wasn’t doing much damage to my empoleon so it was a stalling match lol. On the other hand her garchomp took me only 1 minute to defeat. Bronzong with levitation ability is king.
I just wanted to take a moment to appreciate the artwork for this new Galar merch line, and point out my favorite bits:
- Hop, Bede, and Victor having a group lunch and Allister with his Raihan doll while Mimikyu has a Leon doll.
- Gothgfshipping is canon. (They teased it a little in Masters, particularly since their EX outfits are color-swaps, now here.)
- Raihan trying to keep an oblivious Leon from wandering off to Arceus-only-knows-where, as well as Centiskorch having a Kabu plushie.
Anyway, here’s the merch line, coming to Japanese Pokemon Centers Dec11. It focuses on the Trainers from Sword and Shield on holiday with their friends and Pokemon:
that looks like a condom and the fact that everyone in the notes is saying “the orb” proves that no one on this website fucks
the fuck kinda bouncy-ball ass condoms are you using
the fact that someone thinks that looks like a condom is proof that no one on this website fucks
ok y’all it’s LITERALLY taken from the “wizard pondering his orb” image
it’s an orb.
