Slowly Stuff Done

So I finally got around to taking care of stuff I've been meaning to:

-mailed rebates that may or may not be fulfilled
-mailed voter registration form for Texas
-looked into getting weird TV issue addressed
-watched Fantastic Mr. Fox and Precious: Based on the Novel "Push" by Sapphire

September is looking like it's going to be a bad month. Is it like this every year? But I should be able to make it to October! It's just a little rough but I've been lucky enough to take advantage of this and that. The last few times I visited the folks to print stuff, I was able to gobble their food. It's fortunate they seem to be in better shape at the beginning of the month.

But it reminded me of things I need to look into getting soon:

-microwave (top priority)
-shelves to put stuff on
-printer (would be cool but can wait)
-computer table or desk
-lawn mower (low priority since I think most of my lawn is dead)

I wonder what sort of printer I should look into. The last all-in-one I had was really nice, but it ate through ink just as fast as any other inkjet, and that brand of ink cartridges was the kind they don't seem to refill anywhere. But I may just skip the whole color thing for now and look into a laserjet, which seems to be way cheaper on refills... I can always get an inkjet for the few photos I print each year later.

One exciting thing this month... The Japanese versions of Pokemon Black and White are coming out late in the month! I'd preordered myself a copy, so hopefully I'll still be able to afford it by the time the the ship date rolls around. Really excited to see the new stuff!

Honestly, unless you make 'zines in your spare time or actually do anything art-related in your job, you don't need a very fancy printer at all. Get the second-cheapest one you can find (you also don't want to go too cheap), and buy yourself that microwave with the difference.

Pokemon Black/White looks kind of interesting, but I'm still struggling to finish up Heart Gold and Diamond. Besides, it won't have Jigglypuff, which is practically a deal-breaker!

Yeah, and the North American versions will be out in a few months anyway, huh? Not to mention I'm sure they'll come out with Grey in another year with cooler features and whatnot. I guess I want to see how the "no old Pokemon at first" thing plays out. The ones they've revealed so far mostly don't even look like standard Pokemon style to me!

I kinda burned out on Pokemon. I've seen nothing of Black/White though. And yea September seems to suck lately.

I understand that... they come out with a new Pokemon game every year! I feel like I'm ready for whatever new stuff they have in Black/White though. Hopefully it'll make things more interesting again.
