PokéCommunity nostalgia post #2 of ∞ - ANNIVERSARY EDITION!

Posted April 16th, 2011 at 02:30 PM by Mr Cat Dog (ZOMG! A wild Blog appeared!)

Today marks my approximately-one-and-a-half year anniversary here at PC.

Yes, I joined PC on this day seven years ago, but due to two prolonged absences on my part - one that no one noticed lasting from May to September 2004 and another, more public, one from October 2005 to March 2011 - it appears that I've only been an active member for approximately eighteen months. Huh... It would be heavily narcissistic of me to create a thread in Celebrations 'celebrating' this 'achievement' (and...

... it'll be a simple website that brings down humanity.

I had it all planned out for today. 100 pages on the Cuban Missile Crisis to learn and revise for my Cold War History exam. The pages were all printed out, highlighters were ready and loaded, lined paper AND flashcards were next to the texts in question for easy access should note-taking need to arise. And then I made the mistake of going on Facebook before starting my work.

Power cuts

A few hours ago, we suffered a power cut for what must have been the first time in nearly five years. Obviously, the internet as well as the television went out amongst other things. Had this been just a few years ago, my brother and I would have been crawling up the walls, but my parents would have been content to read a book via candlelight or just talk or something. Five years later, however, can do a lot to change the technological dynamics. I have an iPhone and my brother...

PC's a lot nicer than it used to be.

Maybe it's because the average age of a Pokémon fan has increased over time, allowing for a more mature and orderly forum for discussion; maybe it's because of the effectiveness of the staff in weeding out the bad apples and helping the majority with their problems; maybe it's just some weird reverse nostalgia on my part, and really everything is just the same as it ever was. Unlikely...

There's a reason for the unlikeliness of the...

...that I'd have something profound and important to say. Well, turns out I don't.

Welcome to my blog: the new dumping ground for the thoughts, wishes, neuroses and brief, intermittent sprinklings of wit. (Random bit of intermittent wit sprinkling #1: The acronym for this blog is ZAWBA. That is all.) I've got a few categories lined up when I decide to get more organised:
